The pain of this needle is nothing compared to that goddamn January day, she thought as the buzzing filled her ears. But the tattoo would remind the world what she’d been witness to that cold day. She didn’t want anyone to forget. It was a date she could never forget- the day of her epic transformation.

I still want one more tweet to finish the story for the day. If you know how to save/kill/sort out Candy, tweet at @writersandwords. I'll pick my favorite ending by the end of the day. 


Thanks for playing, Twitter!
