Hint fiction

Writing about web page http://www.robertswartwood.com/?page_id=8

I found a hint fiction competition while browsing. You have to try and write a 25-word story and make it... good I suppose. It's free to enter, so I figured that while I had nothing to do, I may as well try spend all afternoon writing 2 stories. This is what I came up with, in my usual cheerful way. Have a go, you may win $25. What would be fantastic would be if we as a creative writing course managed to take over the entire anthology that they're seeking to publish!
