     HONORABLE MENTIONS:

    Best Use of the Photo:

    @EmilySaraEvans per the judgemaster: I think Emily captured the image perfectly, maybe it’s because she has been to the place in question. Nicely written too. A very close runner up.

    Best Line:

    @klingorengi Jeffrey Hollar “Unless and until a man evinces the requisite determination to be free, he will forever remain as yoked as the meanest of beasts.”

    Best use of the word Determination:

    @andrevr  André van Rooyen (@andrevr) “And there could be no certain determination of it’s span.”

    Sweetest Story:

    @Emilia_Quill Emilia Quill “He ran on, determined to catch her: the prise was a kiss.”

     

    WINNER!

    The Story!

    She waits.

    The lush, verdant canopy allows the sun to kiss the rails that once met at each destination.

    But no more, and she waits. Frozen.

    Sleepers hide—shying away from the world—among a thick layer of undergrowth. Rust laps hungrily at cold metal in twin lines that were once the flesh of dreams; dreams now in decay.

    War takes a man, and she waits with stern determination.

    A rodent curious enough ventures into the tangle of blanched bones, sending pieces of a whole no more tumbling down.

    Body torn from soul, and she waits. For him.

    98 words @righteousgeek

    Per the words of the judgemaster:

    Out of all the stories this one stood out to me the most. Beautifully written. Bleak, but captivating. A well deserved win, but Jaun had better consider himself lucky, he had some really tough competition!
