Jadir smacked into the wall with thud and rebounded backwards, landing on his ass with head pounding. “Ladder,” he muttered.
He stumbled over to a shed and borrowed a ladder. His weaving steps brought him back to the wall and he placed his way over down with exaggerated care. “That’s better,” he slurred.
He climbed the ladder to the top and looked out at the forbidding forest. The twisted branches and deep shadows shook his liquid courage, and he turned to climb back down. Alcohol, being the Great Unbalancer, caused him to lose focus and he tumbled down outside safety.
Welcome to week 6 of Chain Writing Game! This week we have a mystery/adventure that will unfold in 100-word chunks. Who are the authors? You are! Kerrie Salsac gives us a short piece of fiction to start, then anyone who wishes can add on and help bring the story to life. There are now unlimited entries, but you still have to wait for three others to post after your first entry before going again.
Join in the fun. We go until the challenge closes or there are 30 entries. Then Kerrie wraps it all up in a nice bow (pdf or ebook form) for easy perusal.
Hope you enjoy.
Happy Reading and Writing!
