"From the Bottom of my Heart"
"From the Bottom of my Heart" is something we say when we want to convey sincere feelings of love and affection. But who's to say that love is the only thing lurking in our darkest depths? What's really at the bottom of our hearts?
It's almost Valentine's Day. Write a story about love or its imitations.

The contest begins on February 5th and entries will be closed on February 18th. Voting will continue until the contest's end on February 28st. All times are in PST.

The voters will rank the story according to each criteria on a scale from 1 to 10.
