The truth is I'm really, really fond of this challenge, and I'm a little disappointed that we haven't had more participation, so I'm leaving it open until next Monday. That means, if you'd still like to play, you have four more days to write something for us.
Also, a reminder: According to the community rules, stories may only be posted in this community for the duration of each challenge. You are welcome to post links to your stories elsewhere, but please put the text of the story here, behind a cut, at least until the challenge is over. Thanks.
