Wow. That's all I can say from these entries. :D
Before I announce the winner or prizes.... I'd like to write a short review of both of your stories. :)
(I will put these on my profile :)
"I No Longer Have To Pretend" (by Purpleskittles145) This story was amazing. Really. Let's pretend that I live in a beautiful house. I have loving parents. I get good grades and everyone want to be friends with me" "Let's pretend all of this is true. But it's not" Those lines really stand out. And it is really sad :( Great work! You did exactly what I asked :D Her sister doesn't like her :( It makes me so mad! Especially when her sister just stood there and watched!! It even reminds me of Forgotten Tears :D Except Blaire actually had an EXCUSE! And Cassie's sister didn't! X( Like I said, it makes me really mad. But wonderful writing :D Everyone should check it out!!

so...it's boiled down to the last final winner...where did the time go??
anyways....you guys must know how extremely hard it was for me to pick between these two stories. ...but i had to so...here it is:
Guys, I want you to know I loved BOTHthe stories, but I'm glad to announce that the all-time winner is......
Your story was absolutely gratifying!!! I love it :DNice work :)
Yours was awesome too!! So don't feel bad :)
Congrats to the both of you :D Your storie's were amazing and similar in many ways (well it's not hard to be similar when you're writing about the same thing ;) Lol. Anyways...Nickystokes, you soared a little bit higher because of the little sister and all :D but Purpleskittles, you were a VERYVERY close 2nd. I loved them both!! The part of a story I look at most is the ending. I have to give Purpleskittles credit for a great beginning with all the "let's pretend" stuff. But Nicky, you really brought it home for me with the end :) Great ending. Purpleskittles, yours was awesome, too, it just went a little too fast how she was in an abusive home one second and a good home the next. BUTLIKEIKEEPSAYING...THEYWEREBOTHAMAZING.
So, sorry, I can't think of any good prizes right now besides fanning and commenting on your writing (both of you) Nicky, I'll try and think of a really good grand prize for you :D But yeah, I'll get back to you guys on that :)
