Round 2 of the NYC Midnight Short Story Challenge 2022

Yesterday, I turned in my story for Round 2 of the competition. There are over 1000 writers in this round (from over 6000 in Round 1).

Here are the prompts I received for a 2000 word max story:

Genre: Romance
Subject: Inoperable
Character: A wayfarer

The story I wrote is titled: "Crossed Paths"

Synopsis: Heidi, an avid hiker of backcountry trails, sabotages an engineering project that crosses paths with the trail. After her actions unintentionally injure an engineer, she helps the man to safety and falls for his flirtatious spirit.

The results for Round 2 will be out later in May. Hoping I can make it into the top 5 of my group to advance to Round 3!
