    Hi... thanks for voting in the 2015 Annual Short Story Competition finals.
    I submitted one of my stories "Happy Endings" into the contest.

    Critiques here on litnet have always been greatly helpful and helped me improve a lot. As you have already read the story, I was wondering if you could share your thoughts on the story on this thread->
