I've written a short story!
It's still one of my first attempts at stories, and I was writing it in a second language (I'm from Poland), but I feel quite happy with the outcome. The word limit really hurt, though.
Hope you will like it!
The word limit really sucks, though. I feel like it's impossible to to create fleshed out characters and any semblance of a story in just a 1000 words. As such, I fear my entry is too shallow to be any good. I'll try expanding on it in a separate thread.
