Got Winners? Bloodspell, Sunlight and Mystery

Our winner of the Amalie Howard give-away - a double-header: a signed copy of her kickass badass novel, Bloodspell, and a sterling silver Bloodspell triquetra charm is... Eli Yanti! 

And the winner of the Sunlight and Mystery writing prompt is: Charles DeMoss (aka: Charlesthereader). Charles had two very different takes on the prompt and we liked them both so much we decided to show you both. Great work, Charles.

The Prompt:

The sunlight made me shade my eyes. I couldn't see the man in front of me, only his outline.

"Who are you?" I asked.

I heard something click and took a step back. A bead of sweat dropped down my back. The heat was baking me.

"Please, who are you?" I asked again.

With a flourish he pulled back his cloak and stepped to the side so that I could see him.

"I am... "

(Take One)

“I am Death, your Death to be precise.”

I burst out laughing. “Hey, that’s a good one, man. But who are you, really?”

“I already told you, I am your Death, as in a personification of the moment you stop living, the moment when all the lights go out forever. Need I go on?” He smiled condescendingly.

At that point, I knew I needed to get away from there. This guy was obviously crazy, who knew what he might do. I ran to the highway to flag down a passing vehicle.

“And in 5… 4… 3…”

Tires squealed, and then everything ended.

(Take Two)
“I am your imaginary friend!”

“Dude, I’m 17, I don’t need an imaginary friend.”

“Not according to your file. See here: Petey Jones, Age 4, Tormen… Wait, you said you were 17?”

“Do I look like a 4 year old to you?”

“So you’re not Petey Jones?” At this point, the man was starting to freak out.

"Obviously not.”

“Oh, gods above and below, not again! They said that if I messed up one more time I would lose my job! What am I going to do? I need to find him now! Bye!”

He faded away, leaving me wondering what happened.

That's all for this week folks. See you on Monday with more Got Teen Fiction.
