Thanks to everyone who entered and/or voted in WD’s Your Story #59. Here are the results. The winners, in ranking order, are as follows:

1. The last time I saw my sister alive she was kissing my husband. (Cliff Young)

2. Words failed me as a man I’d never seen before embraced me like a lover and said, “Play along or we’re both dead by midnight.” (Teri Edwards)

3. There were strict rules about time traveling, and kissing your deceased wife was breaking every one of them. (Joanna Tegoli)

4. He eased me in closer and closer, and just as our lips met, it remained very clear to me: I did not remember this man. (Sarah Sarver)

5. Agent Starr embraced the brunette, certain of two things: she was a good kisser, and she would try to kill him within the hour. (Jim Weaver)

6. No one would ever believe it was me in that picture, but I will never forget those 45 seconds 25 years ago. (Clark Johnson)

7. Nothing surprised Alicia more than Cassandra hiring her for the engagement photo shoot; nothing delighted Alicia more than ruining it. (Judine Brey)

8. It all started as kind of a deal: she offered to fix his broken heart and he, in return, her secondhand tripod. (Rafal Lato)

9. Jenny was a recovering kiss-aholic, three years clean, when a nice stroll through Stoney Creek Park sent her rather absurdly into relapse. (Sloan Lofton)

10. Jaya hid her panic as she smiled up at Sam’s unsuspecting face and positioned her body out of the line of fire. (Lana O’Neill)
