Serendipity

The topic for this contest is Serendipity. It's about luck or fate that takes the form of finding valuable, or beautiful things that are not looked for. It's those rare moments in our lives, that may leave us mystified, to even believing in possible other worlds.

Write a story that somehow incorporates the topic. The story does not have to be specifically about the topic. But should clearly incorporate the topic into the story.



The contest winner will win half of the prize pool which is based on the number of entries. The second and third place winners will each share the remaining prize pool. The prize pool is currently 24.00 member dollars. There are 12 spots still open. If all open spots are used the prize pool will be 72.00 member dollars. In this contest at least 2 submissions must be made for the vote to begin.
