    I remember doing these as kids, and thought it would be a fun distraction during the hectic holiday season.  Everyone adds one line to the story.  Every now and then I'll try (or someone else can too if they feel the urge) to copy and paste all the story lines into a post so its easier to read. Here goes...


    "Ella walked away from the party with an odd look on her face."

    She had never expected to see a sight like that anywhere

    She was a nice girl and was going to have no part in the filthy going ons of this party!

    She looked behind her and suddenly from out of the shadows she saw someone walking towards her in the dark.

    This stranger made her skin tingle and come out in goose bumps. What power did this stranger wield to affect her so?

    Bovine Currencyposted 8 years ago

    She suddenly realised the echoing self commentary in her head... her nightmare had become reality.  Ella was a parody of the postmodern apocalypse.

    Ok, we've gotten a bit confused here... I've got 2 stories going off of the first line.  K. Partin and Dinah Lee... You guys jumped back and started off of the original line instead of the latest added... Here's the story so far w/ the last line someone added in CAPS if you want to try again.

      Only to find out it wasn't her gun but a lighter!

  17. shazwellyn profile image63

    It reminded her that her joint was in the other pocket and pondered.....

    what did I do with my tissues?

  19. shazwellyn profile image63

    Then she remembered and giggled to herself.

    Denno66posted 8 years ago

    "I've chosen the wrong street again", she chuckled.

  24. shazwellyn profile image63
    shazwellynposted 8 years ago

    She suffered with short-term memory loss.

  25. kirstenblog profile image77
    kirstenblogposted 8 years ago

    Choosing the wrong street would turn out to be the best thing that ever happened to Ella, for a few feet away there was a huge duffle bag filled $100 bills!

  26. shazwellyn profile image63
    shazwellynposted 8 years ago

    But Ella, as usual, always makes the wrong choice and takes the opposing path.

  27. profile image0
    Denno66posted 8 years ago

    The bag of large bills then sat there, unused and lonely...

  28. shazwellyn profile image63
    shazwellynposted 8 years ago

    Ella didn't realise, but the shadow behind was getting closer.

    1. kirstenblog profile image77
      kirstenblogposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Was Ella's story about to change, was something forbidding going to happen?

  29. profile image0
    Denno66posted 8 years ago

    without looking back she quickened her pace to put some distance between her and her pursuer..

    You guys are cracking me up.  Here's the latest, again w/ last line in CAPS.  KPartin - no worries! And, thanks for the fanmail.

    or had this already happened and she was just reliving it?

  32. Jeffrey Neal profile image83
    Jeffrey Nealposted 8 years ago

    Quickly she turned and found herself face to face with a strange-looking figure.

  33. K Partin profile image57
    K Partinposted 8 years ago

    But she realized it was only a mannequin that she had felt strangely attracted to.

      But even if it is only a mannequin, she was really interested

      1. K Partin profile image57

        She touched it's face, felt very plastic!

    It did startle her how much it resembled her long-dead grandfather, however..

  36. Jeffrey Neal profile image83

  37. K Partin profile image57

  38. K Partin profile image57

    It had ticks.

  39. ThoughtfulSpot profile image69
    ThoughtfulSpotposted 8 years ago

    Her uncontrollable fear of lyme disease forced her to turn and flee.

  40. Jery profile image57
    Jeryposted 8 years ago

    Until she noticed a large tick on her arm.

  41. Bovine Currency profile image58
    Bovine Currencyposted 8 years ago

    Its large erect sucking rod draining blood.  Where is it flying to now?  Damn tick.  Ella followed the tick...

  42. mega1 profile image78
    mega1posted 8 years ago

    the tick, engorged with her blood fell onto a stem of grass (ticks can't really fly, you know!) and pretty soon a sweet little deer fawn came along and the tick jumped up onto it for a ride

  43. Bovine Currency profile image58
    Bovine Currencyposted 8 years ago

    oh dear, said Ella.  Ticks don't fly.  Who said that?  Why is there a deer in my room.  Where are my pants?

  44. mega1 profile image78
    mega1posted 8 years ago

    Poor Ella suddenly remembered that last night she had sipped from the wrong drink on the bar - what kind of hallucinogen was she tripping on?

  45. mega1 profile image78
    mega1posted 8 years ago

    Perhaps that wasn't a tick? in her dreamy state she could only remember the engorgement and the sucking sound.

    She seems to feel she may be in a bit of trouble.

  47. Jery profile image57
    Jeryposted 8 years ago

    Then she realized the real source of the sucking sounds...

  48. Jery profile image57
    Jeryposted 8 years ago

    and it wasn't a tick at all, it was her...

  49. mega1 profile image78
    mega1posted 8 years ago

    big toe, which she had never seen looking so huge, and so, well lovely! What a lovely big toe! She wanted to

    paint it a beautiful crimson to match her long, flowing hair
