You Got to Do it

Eli stared intently at the computer screen. On that screen was the task that had consumed his life for the past year. The task was a game called About a Ball. It was a simple game made by Eli's good friend, John. The game was difficult, but only Eli had gone through a whole year of intensive playing without ever winning it. But know he knew he would win it. He was in the final stretch.

He had been practicing this last part for days, but he would always die at some point. But not today. He jumped out of the intensity of the situation at every difficult maneuver, and with a deftness of his hand, he accomplished every maneuver flawlessly. It was a wonder that it had only been a year ago that he had learned to use the arrow keys that he had now mastered. Eli moved the red ball that was the protagonist into the gate that would finish the game. The words "You Win!" came up on the screen. An beautiful sight after see so many "You Lose"'s written in a similar manner

Eli raised his hands into the air and shouted with delight "I won!" He ran around the counter for ten minutes. Everyone in the room congratulated him warmly and joined in the revelry. It truly was a great day.
