My VOTE is for @chireerocks. This short poem said so much in so little words that resonated with me. The rhythm of the piece was enjoyable along with the loose rhyme.

Thank you so much for voting me. Stay blessed.

YES!!! It worked. How much food did you throw-up? bwahaha

Awakened life made me restless. And yes, i have to throw heavy food inside me to deep dive. 😄😄

Stay blessed.

This was tough... it is amazing how many variations on dark and light there are when considering the possibilities of a hollow earth, although the idea of a refuge from life on the topside of earth is common. Yet since one of the criteria of great storytelling is to leave folks wanting more, I have to give it to @blueeyes8960 for the tantalizing "The Galaxy Within.". I would be ready to purchase the rest of the book if it were available -- what happened, already?

I'm going to vote for @gaby-crb's story. It is well-organized. Cleanly edited. It had a vision, which it realized from beginning to end without losing the thread. For me, these are important criteria in any form of writing. Plus, as I explained to @gaby-crb in my comment, she displayed a certain art, in foreshadowing the events (the bell tolls; light at the end of the tunnel). This is a tale of penance and redemption. And it is, at the same time, entertaining. I found myself wanting to discover how the story would end for this character.
What more could I want in a story?

@bananafish, Thank you so much for your kind mention. Stay blessed.

@calluna - I'm getting an error message when I click on this link --> @deeanndmathews with Escape to Atlantis of the Inner Sun

Someone's doing their reading

Very well noticed, thank you very much, was bound to happen eventually with my crazy keyboard bashing skills bwhahahahahsdjkajkfuifse!!

Fixed - sorry about that! Got a bit carried away on the link pasting there, all working now <3

I read all stories and it took me over 2 hours to load and be able to read.
Many stories have a lot in common... someone had to fled for...
A part I found hard to read and the descriptions of the sceneray etc plus the used words were too much for me.
Only 3 stories kept me reading on and had an interesting twist or even two.

I know as a fairy tale lover I do not fit in here and will also look for some story tale-alike I can understand. An easy written tale which also only smartphone users find it worth reading and scrolling and reading and scrolling.

For me the big winner is @deeanndmathews with her: Escape to atlantis of the inner sun.

The story answered my questions about Atlantis and more. It was a delight to read.

You fit quite well in here @wakeupkitty. Continue to be around... Who doesn't like fairy tales? We literally grew up on it.. 😊

My vote is for @Oivas.
I loved the angle this story took, with humans being proactive to fix the problems caused by a nuclear incident. The concept of creating clones to send off planet that matched those in the underground community was a unique choice.
This story just stood out the most in my mind after reading all the amazing entries with its freaky genetic manipulation.

Thank you @gaby-crb!

The challenges of @bananafish are getting bigger and that makes me excited. I have a split vote between @jadams2k18 and @gaby-crb. Both stories have a clean, fluid and deceptive narrative and their literary structures are attractive. The end of Mr. Okubo was obvious and there are two narrative planes: the narrator and the character, like a movie; while Earth's Cavity: A Life Below captures from the beginning and is impeccable the development of the story with spaces for prose.

These stories were absolutely spectacular which made it hard to choose which one I liked the best. I gave it a day to see which one called me back the most. @deeanndmathews story I cannot stop thinking about. It was so well thought out and drew me in from the very beginning. Her attention to detail painted a beautiful story that I can’t wait to hear more about.
