I want this one to be just for fun, something to carry your mind away for just a little while. So... lets do this a little differntly. This time, I'll write the beginning of the story, and you can write the ending. Feel free to write your ending right here, in the comments.
I hope to get a few responses this time. Whatever I get, I'll remove from the comments and post on this blog, on Tuesday.
If nobody feels so inclined, so be it. :-)
Here's the start:
I yawned, rubbing the sleep from my eyes, as I opened the front door. I was heading outside to retrieve the newspaper, hoping that this would be the day I wouldn't have to pull it out of the flower bed next to the driveway. The sun was still low in the sky, so I squinted as I searched with my eyes.
Ah, good! It's Right on the edge of the pavement.
Luckily, I looked down at the stoop before stepping outside. There, right where I was about to step, was a small, red, paper bag. I shifted my footing and then squatted down to look at it more closely.
The top was stapled shut and a note, written in red ink on a 3x5 index card, was taped to the side.
Okay... your turn! What's in the bag? Who left it? What does the note say? Why did they leave it on my doorstep?
I can't wait to find out...
