Hey Everyone! It's time to announce the winner of the Flash Fiction contest! Who will an hour editing session with me!? It was a very tough decision, but I have selected the winner. Congratulations to @JaredPova! A big thanks to everyone who entered!
@HollyBlackAuthor@JaredPova I smiled instantly. It was comical and the spare-change-for-the-devil contrast to Holly's night club owning Lucifer I think is the perfect alternative. I will stop in and read your work soon.
Here's @JaredPova's winning piece for anyone interested (so you don't have to scroll all the way to the bottom like I did :')
I found Satan working in a coffee shop. One side of his head was shaved, and he wore an apron smeared with ruddy stains.
I knew it was him because of his eyes: deep blue like the ocean. Like a pointed sapphire—sharp and opulent.
These were the eyes of Lucifer.
"What can I do you for?” He leaned across the counter. His long fingers were made for the piano.
"I need to make a deal."
"What'll it be?" His smile was like a song out of tune--something off kilter.
"My brother’s sick."
"You want me to heal him?"
"Sure." Another smile. The lines crinkled around his eyes.
“Do you want my soul?”
"No," he said. "A tip." He jingled the change bucket in front of me.
I quirked an eyebrow.
"Hell, dude. Don't look at me like that," he sighed. "Even the devil needs to eat."

I can’t even find the words to describe how much you’ve changed my life. Jude has taught me so much about girl power. Your writing is absolutely gorgeous, I aspire to be like you one day!!! Your my absolute hero!!!!
I can't believe that I'm writing this.I mean, the point is that I'm afraid that what I write will be a little bit stupid,because you've certainly seen such comments a million times. But you only live once and I know I wouldn't forgive myself if I didn't express here, what I actually feel. So - I have read many books in my 17-year-old life (so many, that it's really hard to count them). And your books definitely belong to the ones I love the most(without which I can't imagine my life).Each time I read them, I find myself in an unusual world created by you. Every time I experience everything as if I was reading it for the first time. I am waiting impatiently for the next books (currently for the Queen of nothing-
I can barely stand it, I want to know everything about Jude and Cardan!) Thank you for writing such an amazing stories and also thank you for that I feel like I have a second life (taking place in a world created by you)
I hope that you'll read it
