The Judge

_This week's Judge is the talented Cara Michaels, she describes herself as a left-handed, right-brained Gemini with stories to tell who has been writing since childhood.  She's the author of Gaea's Chosen: The Mayday Directive available at Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, Amazon.com, iTunes and Diesel.
_Cara is also the host of Ménage Monday an exciting three prompt challenge of 100 to 200 words.  Visit her website to find out more about her!

The Prompt

_This week's prompt is inspired by the "Girls with Guns" series (Noir, Madlax, El Cazador del la Bruja) that I have absolutely fallen in love with.  The stories have different styles and locales, but the underlying theme ties them together.  Good luck with this one! ;)
The Prompt is:  Tears streamed down her face as the gun clattered on the ground. "I just wanted to know who I was." _

The Rules

_
  1. Story must continue from the prompt. (This means the prompt is the first sentence of the story.)
  2. No more than 500 words (not including the prompt).  No less than 100 words.
  3. Any genre (in fact an unexpected genre will get you more points.)
  4. Entries must be submitted by Tuesday Noon EST
  5. The winner of each week's competition will be invited to judge the following week.
  6. Have fun!
