The Storytime Challenge….

I love writing short stories, and I thought it would be fun to start off with an opening line and then hand over to you to complete the story in the comments section. (you will have to keep an eye on the comments that people have written before you).

I will then bring it all together next Saturday (28th January 2017) , add a dramatic ending, and include links to your sites (if you are a blogger) and you can then reblog as a story that you have all co-written.

This could be really funny…it could all go horribly wrong…

Rules :

  • There are no rules (write as little or as much as you like in the comments, share and tweet..blah blah)

Here is how the story starts:

Dave had kept his secret for 40 years, but now, faced with a life-changing turn of events, he wondered whether the truth should come out…….

  1. It had been so easy to keep his true identity a secret all these years, but now, with that imposter out there, maybe he needed to step up and ‘come out’ as it were…

  3. In the darkness outside eyes were watching his window. “You may call yourself Dave now,” the man whispered, “but I’ve found you now my old friend.” It had taken time. The one feigning to be Dave, the imposter, lay in pieces somewhere in the park behind. An owl hooted and the night walked on.

  5. Dave had been taken over by the darkness that consumed him. He has just committed a horrific act, yet he had no remorse. He was saving himself, and felt justified in his actions. What Dave didn’t know was that he had opened up something in himself that was evil. He had liked the feeling of complete power, being in control. It was just the beginning, as the “real” Dave, that he had kept hidden for so long, came out.

  7. Because he’d need his energy for what lay ahead. Things had been set in motion and now there was no turning back. He might not have chosen now if he’d been in control of the timing – and indeed the imposter had unnecessarily complicated everything (what where they thinking!?), but he’d always known this day would come. So he’d been prepared, with all he needed – the papers, the proof, and those he could contact who would corroborate his side of it all – lined up for when the day came. And that day of reckoning? Well, it was now seriously nigh.

    That said, before all that, there were calls to be made, clean-up to be done, loose ends to tie up.

    And so first? Pizza.

  9. The old Grandfather clock chimed mercilessly in the shabby hallway; time was ticking away. Dave felt the blood rushing through his veins, his temples aching. With his head in his hands, eyes unblinking, he knew. Oh he knew what he had to do.

  11. So he ordered in, he could check his messages while waiting for the pizza. He grabbed a beer from the fridge in the kitchen, and went to sit down on the couch but in that moment something happened…

    *sorry, I couldn’t not roll with the pizza thing ;P

  13. a sudden shift to a parallel universe left Dave gasping for breath. Damn it, he thought. I’m hungry. How are they going to deliver my pizza now ? They’ll never find me……
