“Me” & “It” is a short story that i wrote few months ago which i submitted to Asian English Olympics 2017 short story writing competition. well it’s kinda a one-shot story and i wrote it in about 24 hours. short amount of time indeed.
Even though i didn’t make it to the finals, i’m proud enough to finish this story since yeah, duhh.. i was seriously in rush. the judges comments are quite positive except the fact that i did a loooottt of grammar mistakes. since the competition is over, i think it’s okay to post it here, personally.
it wouldn’t be fun if i post all of it right away, ain’t it? so first thing first. the sypnosis!
here you go, enjoy!
“Me” & “it”
Evanna is a 2 years consecutive front-runner majoring in Cello. The next year when she was competing, fear ate her inside and out as she botched her performance in front of 2.000 people. As a result, she underwent trauma in playing cello. She couldn’t hear the notes nor hold a cello. She received mockery and hate from the people around her. Making her self-esteem drop all the way down. One day, she met a girl on a light-house and then experienced a near death experience. Being indebted to the girl, she was told to play the cello as a way to paying the debt. Can she find a way back to her old brilliance?
