The charater that I like in the short story 'Cheat' is Lynne Webbings.She is the author of the story Sheepdog caught in the flood.Due to her hardwork,she got second place in the short story competition.Lynne was also very gracious because she congratulates Geoff for winning the competition.
   Lynne although disappointed by the result,she accepts it and move on.This shows Lynne able to accept failure and stay composed.
   Finally,Lynne also didn't elt her loss affect her friendship with Geoff.She also didn't expose after she assumes thatGeoff cheated in the competition.These qualities shown by Lynne Webbings is want makes her the character that I like most.
