The clock is ticking and there are only a few hours left before this round of our Three-Minute Fiction writing contest closes. All stories must be submitted by 11:59 Eastern Time tonight. Our Round 7 judge, Danielle Evans, issued this challenge: One character must come to town and one character must leave town. For the full rules go to npr.org/threeminutefiction.
