Time for another entry to the Go Teen Writers prompt contest:
They say I’m innocent, but I know better. If I’m innocent why is my ribcage so tense that I can’t breathe? Why are the tears I try to suppress flowing down my cheeks?
Such a magnificent animal…dead. I should have double-checked the brush I fed him. Then Zuri would still be alive.
My supervisor says I don’t have to resign, but I could never work with animals again. Not at the zoo or anywhere. I can’t even pet my sister’s cat without guilt drowning me.
I don’t know what to do. Animals have been my life ever since I can remember.
This time around I didn’t even make the top 20 😦 Katy McCurdy wrote an amazing entry that received 1st, 2nd and 3rd places! She took first place overall, so I’m in 2nd now.
