Well done @Sal Boxford for your victory with Banana, Rosa, a touching and beautiful story. I'm sure I'm not the only one who inexplicably had dust in my eyes while I was reading. In second place was @Michael R. Kage with Black Desert, a story jam packed with action. Well done to all the authors. I expect the December contest to be even quieter as we're all so busy with Christmas, but hopefully fewer entries will mean more people have time to read and vote!
