Congratulations Flmngo.  ;)  

What a great story. Now it's up to you to come up with challenge #7.
Don't worry, it's a lot of fun.
And I hope all the people who voted will also send in entries.
It was a real pleasure to run this challenge.

Thanks to all the other entries. Hope they don't mind me saying their names.
In no particular order: Emma, King London, Mz001, Misaditas and RedBarron.
Hope you'll join me in the next challenge.

Here's Flmngo's story again for your enjoyment:

Enter at Own Risk

IF ONLY he could get back to the time portal. Josiah crawled frantically, his cracked fingernails churning in the red Georgia clay. His left thigh, swollen with gangrene, hung limply behind him and hissed faintly with CREPITANT menace. The FLOWER! Where was the damned flower? Josiah slung his head around weakly, trying to focus his fevered brain on finding his one salvation from this ARMAGEDDON. Suddenly, hands dropped on his shoulders. “Hey, Cap’n! Where ya’ll trying to get to, son?” The hands lifted him gently. “Damn sir, Yankees gonna be here soon. Best get you back to the hospital wagon.”

Keep your eyes open for the next challenge guys.  ;D
Should be out soon.

Wow! I'm really honored and pleased.

I just had some minor surgery today, so let me get a day under my belt and I'll be posting the next challenge really soon.

Thanks everyone who voted. It was really nice to see such a turn out.

Good going Flmngo. Congratulations on the win.

If you need more than a day after your surgery - take it.  ;)  Your health comes first.
