50,000 Tickets to Paradise (2023)

A 3500-word short story.

Marissa was determined to win a large stuffed tiger as a grand romantic gesture for her girlfriend, Lacey. She spent the entire summer playing skeet ball at the pier’s amusement park, trying to accumulate the fifty thousand tickets required to exchange for the coveted tiger. On the last day of the carnival, Marissa falls short by twenty-five tickets, leaving her disheartened. However, Lacey surprises her by suggesting an alternative use for the tickets.

Sometimes the most romantic gestures come in unexpected forms.
