W is for ..... Winner

This is a work of fiction and forms a part of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. I will attempt to write a new story based on the word for the day every day during the month of April.


“Mamma, we had a chess tournament in school today, and I Won!”
“That’s wonderful”, said Winona, hugging her child. “Let me see your medal.”
“I didn’t get a medal, Mamma. Only the children who came first, second and third did.”
“But I thought you said you Won?”
“I did, Mamma”, explained her daughter patiently. “None of the children my age or younger beat me. I was the Winner among us.”

Her daughter taught Winona a very important lesson that day. It doesn’t matter if you come first or not. As long as you consider yourself a Winner, you are one.
