    Contest #179
    Theme: "Run the Jewels" courtesy of @GingerCoffee

    Contest story entries can be found HERE.

    We have 11 entries in this contest! The winner will be revealed in two weeks and the winner thread will be stickied until the next contest's winner is crowned. No more entries are allowed in this contest.

    Entries are listed in the poll in the order posted.

    Voting ends in ~two weeks, Sunday, Oct. 11th, 2015 ~5:30 pm Pacific Time.

    I encourage authors to vote. While it is controversial, it remains acceptable in the short story contest to vote for yourself. I encourage you to vote honestly. In the name of good sportsmanship only vote for yourself if you have read all the other stories and given them your honest evaluation.

    Consider how the author has responded to the theme, as well as the quality of the writing and overall impression of the story in making your decision.

    Read for pleasure, learning, and to vote.
    Make someone's day, vote for their story!

    One more day to vote. I myself am having a hard time deciding between several very good choices.

    Five hours left to show the love to your fellow writers. :D

    Also, there are only 5 votes so far in the Flash Fiction contest. That's two stories, each less than 500 words, and you have another week to cast a vote. Why not just get it done right now? :agreed:

    Aw, thanks. I was actually horrified when I read it back recently. It had some serious issues. I need to start properly editing these things before I post them because it's becoming embarrassing. lol. But I'm glad some people liked it and voted for it. :)

    I liked your story too Viridian. It came around full circle. :)
