Below you will find the results of my having challenged myself for a number of days to write a short story with a beginning and middle and an end inside of 30 minutes. Here is what I came up with. I hope you like it.
Prior to her sentencing, Felicia asked if she could read a statement.
She stated that she was one of the brightest pupils at Kingsley Montessori School, helping her fellow students and often providing assistance to teachers, despite her tender age. At Boston Latin, she maintained excellent marks and, after completion, successfully sued to be retroactively named salutatorian. She graduated summa cum laude from The Massachusetts Institute Of Technology and was looking to pursue graduate work in cooperation with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute. The death of her sister was, objectively, a tragedy. Anyone, regardless of intellect, could see that. However, was it only slightly less tragic to prevent Felicia from continuing her contributions to society by imprisoning her?
The judge gave her three years and a five thousand dollar fine.
