Phil just won $5.55 as a Runner-up in the 55 word story contest at Suzanne Tyrpak–Who’s Imagining All This? for his story:
He regularly came to this overlook with its view of Manhattan. One day, he noticed an attractive woman, several benches away. For many weeks, he sat at his bench; she hers. They both sat quietly staring at Manhattan. He finally decided to say hello; she got up and walked away. He never saw her again.
