Referee’s decision:


No time problems at all. Both dealt well with the words.

Kenny's story, "She Giggled," has an existential quality to it. The narrator is having 'a day' as he says. Not exactly an ordinary day with peanuts.

Celia's story, "Kindness," is not pretty. But it is touching, and gritty.

I like both--they're very different, as I expected from these two. Kenny's story is perhaps a bit more complete; in any case, I like it a little better of the two.

Denny Wheeler
