The DBuzz Zap fiction short story weekly challenge: Week 6

Greetings, fellow writing enthusiasts!

It's Friday, buzz authors!

Time to swap buzzing out for zapping as we present this week's DBuzz short-form Zap fiction challenge post! We always like to keep things fresh around here, so this week, we are trying something a bit different. The challenge this week is to use your creativity and write a story where the first and last lines are the same. The topic of the story could be anything you wish, but the first and last lines must be identical.

To get you started, think of the first and last lines as the buns of a hamburger, and fill up the middle with a short and compelling Zap fiction story.

Here's an example:

The coffee tasted good. However, Susan did not realize it was poisoned. She drank it and got sleepy. Her last thoughts were that... the coffee tasted good.

Sure, it's a bit dark, but it was only meant to be an example.

We can't wait to see all the creative Zap Fiction stories our buzzketeers come up with for this one. Get your writer's hats on and start brainstorming!

Last week, we challenged you to write about a dark secret found in a family diary, and we were engrossed by the many submissions we received. After reading them all, we're thrilled to announce that the winner is @esbat with their intriguing tale of a cloned grandparent! It was a captivating story, and we can't wait to see what other fascinating tales our community will come up with next.

Remember, you MUST use the DBuzz frontend to post. While it's true you can use any other Hive frontend to post on DBuzz, we will only accept entries that are from the DBuzz interface. If you click on your buzz, you will see where it was submitted from, so please make sure to use DBuzz to post.
