“Starling” by Cristina Ozon | Short Story Winner

She didn’t know how long it had taken her to break free from inside the egg. The hard shell was translucent against the daylight, and taking aim at where it was thinnest, she pounded with her fists and feet until there was a tiny crack, a pinprick of light. With scrabbling fingers she clawed and ripped and fought, the crack became a spiderweb, shattering at last.

“Sweet Sixteen” by Nicole Little | Short Story Winner

Bridget always felt a connection to her mother at the beach. Perhaps the rhythm of the waves caressing the shore reminded her of the rhythm of the womb; it was after all, the only memory she had of her.

Abandoned at the water’s edge, no more than a few hours old; her frantic newborn cries had attracted the attention of a pod of mermaids swimming nearby. She’d heard the story a million times: how their songs had soothed her and, how, wrapped in their gossamer tresses and lulled by the lap of the water, she’d fallen asleep in their arms.
