It seemed as if time stood still yet physically, the clock continued to tick on. The deafening silence brought an onslaught of past memories that were once buried in a deep corner of his/her heart. She/he clutched the broken glass star, mended with several strips of clear tape. It was broken but it still came together perfectly, safely securing the memories hidden inside each of the shattered crystals. She/he held it up to the dark sky, rain pounding on in the background, and let it slip from his/her hands. She/he watched it slowly crash down to the wet ground and come apart. The strips of tape could no longer support the broken star but from within, she/he finally felt mended.
The deadline to send in your entry is: January 14th, 2015.
