The Challenge

Just what it says on the tin! Write a story that is exactly 15 words (no more, no less!) and post it into this thread. You can approach the story in any way you like. It could be about YWS. It could be about the weather. It could even be about your crippling fear of geese. All I ask is that you squeeze it into 15 words - and that you keep it kid-friendly (i.e, no stories that would be rated above 12+, please!)

Multiple submissions welcome!

The Prizes

First prize - 1500 points
Second prize - 1000 points
Third prize - 500 points

The Judge, Jury and Executioner

Yours truly, Panikos!

The Deadline

Midnight on 14th November 2019 (in your timezone).

If you've any questions, stick them in here or shoot me a PM. Happy writing!
The backs of my eyes hum with things I've never done.

Hi, listen I don't always have bad days, but they aren't always good. I'm sure I'm not the only one out there with horribly bad days, so boi watch your profanity.

My son watched me as I entered my house.

My son died three years ago.
