Book the Break Short Story Competition

The Book the Break Short Story Competition is for stories (max 2,000 words) on The Cats, with the following extract from One Green Bottle as a prompt.

A long time ago, when life was tolerable, almost good, he had two cats that kept him company. How old was he? Seven? Eight? Before his father began to question the worth of his existence. Back then, presumably, he was cute, almost as cute as the tabbies. He never knew what happened to them but they disappeared, both of them, all of a sudden, and he was left only with an inconsolable sadness.

Deadline: 6 pm GMT, February 15th 2016

It’s free to enter and the winner will receive Bed and breakfast for 4 nights in Provence.
