      Hi, Madam Ilana, I sent a congratulatory note to you as well. My most favourite character for the F2C on AI was, undoubtedly, Bruce. But all my predictions and expectations have been proved wrong this time. So here is wishing all the winners and the participants A BIG THANK YOU for taking Story Writing to new heights and for your wonderful contributions.

    Congratulations Jen on yet another ‘killer’ story. The concept was truly unique: A device that simulates emotions. Damned clever. Congrats to the runners-up as well, nothing to be ashamed of, lots of great stories this past week, or two, or three or four. I believe I had your story pegged at second (don’t hate me) with Wendy’s in first, yet hers came in eighth. At least I was more or less on track with some of my choices. But there were so many good stories I think it was a bit of a crap shoot. (Not crap as in shit, rnb, crap as in ‘Craps’ the dice game of chance.

    @ Wendy,
    You were correct, Wendy. I did write a similar story not too long ago called, ‘To Isaac, With Love.’ It slipped my mind, but yes, it dealt with A.I., a murder, and I believe there was a detective in the story as well, (but not Stratton and Myers.) My bad. Your good. p.s. I really enjoy your writing. and it has nothing to do with the blowtorch. I swear. (Although, I must find out what you do with that thing.) Cheers! Gotta go.
