Shortlisted Tweets - #flflive

Below are the shortlisted tweets for the #flflive competition. No theme this time, but each tweet must include the word 'now.' An unexpectedly high number of entries, with the shortlist drawn up by Richard from Paragraph Planet, and judged by the audience. Thanks to everyone who contributed.

Anita Chapman@neetswriter Ebay said the item sold. She wrapped the dress in brown paper. Now it belonged to the buyer, who she hoped would get to be a bride. #FLFlive
Nick Johns?@nickjohns999 “I’ve read that IVF uses liquid nitrogen, so we can have a child now” Frosty the Snowman explained to his anxious wife #FLFlive
Nevervane?@Nevervane Rolo woke from a troubled sleep. His arms were bound in wax. The Nevermen circled above like dust in the trail of a passing car. #FLFlive
Tom Briars?@Tom_Briars An elderly couple were nibbling crisps on the pier. They paused: a cat tap-danced past, smoking a cigar. “Now do you believe me?” #flflive ***RUNNER-UP***
Niamh Hill?@Chocoteach He stared at his now blood soaked shirt. 'Til death do us part would come sooner than he expected. Love, he reflected was fickle. #FLFLIVE
David Hartley?@lonlonranch They brought the unicorn in, all skittering hooves, snorts and kicks. I gripped the giant cork steady. 'Now!' screamed the director #FLFlive ***WINNER***
