Oh Autumn, how we love you so. Now that it's September, we're approaching a new school year although this one will be slightly different than those before it.
Since we're all just a little bit more away from our friends around us, BACommunity and WattpadShortStory have teamed together in hopes that this short story flash-fiction challenge will cheer you up. Here are some of our favorite songs that we're listening to as we spend a lot of our time talking to each other over Zoom instead of in person:
Bruno Mars - Count on Me
One Republic - Connection
Colbie Caillat - Never Gonna Let You Down
Flora Cash - You're Somebody Else
SYML - Where's My Love
Taylor Swift - this is me trying
Tate McRae - that way
