    Glimmer to all ppl here IMPORTANT

    She Struggles uphill then notices a rabbit family and quietly ducks down and get an arrow ready. she then has a vague feeling she is being watched ,she slowly turns her head and notices the other people watching her. in her head she is trying to quickly make a decision. she make her decesion she looks at the people puts her pointer finger over her lips. She then quietly points to her bow and then points to her arrow then to the 7 rabits she then piints at all of the other people then herself silently indicating that she will form an alliance with them right now and start by sharing her food. (She also has about 2 sponsors). She aums her qrrow and two of the bunnies slump. Dead. She killed both with one arrow. The other five who are starting to panic look around trying to find the person who killed some of there kind. Glimmer already has another arrow ready she sstrikess down three of them with this one arrow. She quickly gets the last one and kills the other two. First she retrieves her threee arrows and cleans them off with snow then she puts them back in her bag. She then cleabs the bunnies with the snow. She walks towards the others. She smiles at all of them. She then starts a fire and cooks all te rabits perfectly (as you can with a fire). She keeps thetwo biggest rabits for herself then puts the other five in the middle for the others to eat. The other people notice she has three back packs which all have a sleeping bag 3 gallons of water (9 gallons overall) crackers dried fruits night glasses knives and ect. She has only used one bag and barely. She puts the oter two by the rabits. Ofering them to everyone. She then gets out her half empty water. She looks around and grabs the clean snow and stuffs it into the bottle until its full with snow. She tries to take a drink fom it but the snow froze most of it so she puts it by the fire fot a while. She then gets out her sleeping bag and closes her eyes trying to sleep.

    Self-published e-book of two short stories. 27 pages total.

    The first story was OK; I'm not sure why it's award-winning. I could see the ending coming. 1 or 2 stars. The second was gripping and well-written. 4 stars.
