Winning Short Story – Category B 

That Sunday with my grandparents was a Christmas morning in mum’s house. We were boring watching TV.

— It’s snowing! Wow! We can go t the park and play war of snow balls – said my grandmother.

— OK – said my sister.

Ten minutes later the family went to the park. My mum started the war, and later all together were throwing snow balls.

— Stop! Stop! We can go to our home and eat hot chocolate, and later we can open the presents – said my grandmother.

When we arrived, we look for the presents in the corridor, but it was only a note. This note said that were hidden and that we had to find them in the house.

— Wow. It will be funny. Let’s start! The first clue said that two of the presents were in the cosiest furniture of the house.

— In the sofa! – we said at the same time.

We went to the sofa, picked the presents and read the second clue.

— OK. This note said that three presents are in a place that there is a lot food.

And there, on the table, there were three of the presents.

— Third and last clue. The bedroom that smells better than others.
— I know! Grandparent’s bedroom.
— Let’s open them – told us my dad.

We opened them and played a lot. They were the best Christmas of my life.

Winning Short Story – Category C

Next time I see my grandparents I will ask them to tell them again the story of how they met. I know their story by heart but I love how their eyes shine when they are telling me about it and making fun of each other. I must say that theirs was kind of a funny story.

It was the 8th of June in 1954 when they first met. My grandma was 20 years old and a protestant in favor of women’s rights. Eventhough she hated violence she somehow managed to end up in a particularly violent protest. As the disturbances went on the police arrived and she had to run away. She didn’t have a license to drive a car so she jumped into the first motorcycle she found. What a coincidence that my grandpa was driving it. She yelled at him to escape fast and so did he, even though he didn’t knew her name. They run away from the city and arrived to a camping. They stayed there for a couple of days until the situation in the city calmed down a little bit.

During those days they got to know each other and soon became very good friends. As the time passed by, they fell in love and started dating. They got married five years later and they still love each other with the same passion as the first day.
