Sci-fi/ a repairman/ a promotion.
I don’t think I will be troubling the scorers. 
I detest sci-fi, it normally seems to me like some other genre set in another galaxy. But then, I don’t really like the concept of genre at all. It’s a miracle that I got this far ....
And why the reduced word count? Why does short story transform into flash fiction at the halfway mark? It’s like changing from football to tennis at half time.
And what is it with the synopsis? What’s that got to do with anything?
There .... I just thought I’d come out with the bitter and twisted stuff before I officially lose.

Seriously though ... good luck to everyone. It’s an honour to be in such company.

Well, they had to cram a third round in between 2 and final, though why the cut wasn't to 1750 instead of forcing the final round to be flash I don't know.

I landed in Heat 3: Ghost Story / Animal Trainer / A Compromise 

What up, heat mates! @ophelialit74 and @SugarStripes

I'm a fan of ghost stories, but this was my first time writing one. Looking forward to reading how other's interpreted the prompt! :D

I've never made it this far before -- and it was an intense 48 hours that felt more like 12. Never tried this genre before and must admit, I enjoyed it!

Best of luck to everyone!
