A Story by Kaliope
"

Written for a 100 words contest

"
Dianne clutched his picture against her chest. This time she wouldn't hesitate, she'd tell him how amazing he was, how he had saved her life in so many ways and how much she loved him.

"Next!"

She stepped forward, her heart racing.

Wearing the same smile as in the picture, he looked up. "Any dedication?"

"For Dianne," she quavered and handed the print over.

He scribbled his name across, right over his kind, gorgeous face. "There you go."

She looked at the photo; ink lines criss-crossed his lips like sutures. "I…" 

"Yes?"

Dianne swallowed. "Where are you going next?"

Wow...I am just speechless. Before reading this I used to believe that writing a story in few words is just meaningless because such story fails in conveying the emotions, but here you have done something amazing here and I would like to admire your writing abilities for that.
Well done,
I will be looking forward to read your other writings

I suppose this situation has been repeated a million times. The fan infatuated with her idol, the idol thinking about how long till he can stop for the day - a blur of faces!
You've caught it well!

A+!!!
You totally captured this moment. I love how in the first line, we get this fierce determination, but when the moment comes, it disappears. We have all been there before. Seriously, good job. I hope you win the contest!

Heh-heh, okay, I guess she needs another chance. This is sweet--a very effective one hundred words. The reader can go beyond what you've written and imagine more failure but perhaps success for Dianne.

I don't know how you do this! How are you able to tell so much with few words? I loved this, especially because I know that this is how it feels and I wouldn't have been able to describe it like this. Your words have power. I loved this!
