One thought on “Zara Altair

  1. Dear Zara Altair,

    I am sending a second response to your call via email, in case my return message doesn’t reach your ears.

    Thank you so much for choosing my sentence! I feel very honored to know that you thought I was the best entry out of so many excellent submissions. I am deeply grateful to you and the judges for your work.

    The story the line comes from is called “Straws.” The basic premise is that Paul, a regular at Flannigan’s Pub, is dragging a drunken Uncle Winn back home when he encounters the leopard on the roof. Terrified, Paul runs for help at the local Sally Eats, a small family-owned diner. Unfortunately, he leaves the unconscious Uncle Winn in the doorway of the cabin. When Paul returns with help, the men have to draw straws to see who will go near the cabin to get him.

    If you have questions, please feel free to call me again. I am sorry my being in Japan caused you some delay with contacting me.

    Thank you for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you.


    Michelle Adams
