Alone in a Crowd…

Pretty stoked. Won 3rd place with this little piece.

They were all smiling, having such a grand time. Outwardly, she smiled, inwardly, she fought the volcanic feelings rising inside of her.

Two boys walked past her, and as she peeked up for a brief second, she heard them reminiscing about their latest conquests of military might in a new video game.

        1. Honestly… there are times I read the stuff that won and I am dumbfounded as to why. It’s not that my piece was better (ok, I totally think it was), it’s just that I don’t really get why. It’s not a stellar piece, it’s trite or trivial, and at best it might have a sense of mystery because it doesn’t make sense. Mind you, I did say sometimes. There are others where I totally see why they won. /boggle
