Prompt #26

For those of you watching college basketball, March is March Madness! March Madness means brackets, and brackets mean showdowns!


Write a suspenseful story that ends with a showdown. Have the entire piece lead up to what will ultimately result in a face-off between two of the characters. Maybe it’s a pie-eating contest. Maybe it’s a boxing match. Whatever it is, make sure to create that suspense!
