Flash Fiction- Open Prompt

The Jacob Von Kutzleben Memorial Scholarship
Writing Contest

Jacob enjoyed writing Science Fiction and Urban Fantasy short stories. His homework always took precedence, but whenever he had free time, he wrote.  He had plans for a series of Urban Fantasy books featuring a werewolf protagonist. Just as the scholarship is keeping Jacob's dream alive, his passion will live on through this contest.
