Beep. Beep. Beep. Beep.

WHA-WHO?

My hands search for cold metal against the dark.

WHA-WHO?

It’s 1 AM!

The three digits flash in the screen : 1:00.

Beep. Beep. Beep goes my phone; a new, important email.

WHA-WHO?

After about five times trying and failing to put in the correct password, the little mail app opens.

Of course, it must be my parents or something, but-

WHAT?

Grabbing the phone, my feet tap-tapped to the bathroom, trying not to wake up my room mate.

Clearing my eyes, I squinted at the screen and….

There, in a 100 word paragraph, was a congratulatory letter from the Argentina Independent (national English newspaper) saying that my submission to the Argentinian writers’ conetest had been accepted as one of the Top 5 Finalists!

Me. A foreignor in an exotic land. Was this sent to the wrong person??

I clicked on the facebook link, and familiar words fill the page.

The story with the most likes on Facebook gets to be featured in the Argentina Independent website.

Anything is possible. 

It would be amazing if you could take 2 seconds and help click “like” and read through my work, and comment with feedback! 🙂
