So, are you joining me? Head here to enter. What’s your story about?

Mine’s a romance, by the way. And yes, I love semi-colons.

Clarissa wandered down the street, weaving between the revelers, nodding occasionally at someone she knew. She should have avoided the celebration, but her friends kept insisting, urging her to get out and enjoy herself, meet a new man. They didn’t understand. The festival blurred around her; dancers turning, skirts spreading wide; lanterns glowing, fire dimly lighting the square; music soaring over the conversations, instruments singing in joy. Then she saw him. Over the heads of the crowd, their eyes locked and tears ran down her cheeks. He pushed his way to her, wrapped his strong and around her and wouldn’t let her pull away. “I’m here,” he said. He wasn’t as exciting as Philip had been, but he was safe, and he would stay. She nodded, head buried in his chest.
