Janie was eager to offer assistance. Just this morning she had gained her First Aid certificate and was primed to deal with heart attacks and strokes. Quickly parking her car, Janie rushed to the aid of her emergency patient. With trepidation, she knelt by his side.

This is the first time I have entered a competition like this. What a great way to get rid of verbosity!
I have counted my work several times and come up with exactly 100 words each time. However the word count when I put the story on Fanstory said "Approximate Word Count: 101" . Huh?? I also noticed it counts paragraph spaces as a word. Huh? Is it not possible to have spaces without them bring counted as words? I stick to my guns I have written 100 words exactly.
