  Gambar kredit: Foto lukisan jalanan oleh Pok Jeh Allan  Hari panas terik seperti biasa. Kemilau cahaya mencucuk mata. Haba meruap dan debu berterbangan dihembus angin. Di dalam sebuah kelas sekolah rendah, Darren ralit merenung ke luar kelas.

Short story | The World Champion by Rowan W

Image credit: McFlight The little boy bowed, a faint glint in his eyes subtly hinting to his opponent that he was not someone to be trifled with.
