Welcome short story lovers as we welcome lovers in short stories. This week’s challenge was all about testing the limits of the heart as we asked our authors to weave a tale about separated lovers being reunited at long last.
Albert Berg gives us “The Stars Also,” proving yet again that his imagination knows nothing of limits.
Challenger Amber Keller strikes back by reuniting lovers with the story, “What Must Be Done.”
Who will win? Will Amber continue the trait of toppling our arena writers? Or will Albert bring the trophy back home?
Read! Enjoy! Comment and discuss!
We have two judges that will render their decision by Friday. The third vote comes from you, the readers. We ask that you read both stories objectively, and then leave a comment below or on the story itself. Authors aren’t allowed to comment on their own stories, but we’re sure they’ll be checking in here. We’ll tally up the totals and announce our champion on Friday.
On a side note, we are paying our authors a base level rate at the moment, but if you really enjoyed their story and want to help us make sure these awesome people get paid, please donate below. 75% goes to the author, the rest goes to keeping this place up and running.
