THIS is your ONE WEEK WARNING Folks!

Yes, there is just One Week left to get your story entries in, before the current contest closes.
So... if you've committed any crimes that need to be justified, this is a good place and time to confess!!

I cede my pick to Zosi, I think she had the best story anyway. Plus I kinda picked this one too.

Thanks everybody. Keep ATS cool, keep writing.
