I guess I could do something. 10 pages, though... it's sort of an uncomfortable length between too short and too long. Between short story and novella. Meh. See, when you make that distinction that you're out of short story land, you can't really do much in the way of a twist ending - the story has been building up too much momentum to suddenly jerk it around. You have to have a beginning, middle and end. In 10 pages.

Sounds like a challenge.
