Chain Writing Game 6: The Wall – ep. 13

Episode 13

“Uh…I,” Jadir stuttered as his body reacted to Eliya. He backed up and tripped over his feet, tumbling to the ground. “I’m…flattered, but I love another woman. Her name’s Camilla.”

Eliya’s face turned quizzical, then frowned. “You think I wanted to mate with you?” She chuckled. “This is just how my people dress. There’s not much use for…coverings,” she gestured at Jadir’s clothes, “that hinder movement and catch on branches. In fact…” She pulled a blade from a thigh-sheath and strode forward. “…some of that needs to go.”

Jadir flushed, but allowed her to cut his clothes to shreds.

I’m not against romance, I swear. It just seemed like a good part to highlight cultural differences (yeah, that’s the ticket) between Jadir and Eliya with a little misunderstanding. Will love grow between the soft, citified Jadir and jungle survivor Eliya? That’s entirely up to YOU. Join in the Chain Writing Game and add your own 100-word contribution to the story. It’s unlimited entries (we go to 30 total) and you only have to wait until three others go before you post after your first.

Hope you enjoy.

Happy Reading and Writing!

CWG 6: The Wall – Ep. 3

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!

CWG 5: He’s Behind You – ep. 26

“Find a janitor’s supply closet,” Victor said. “Find some towels, soak them in something flammable, wrap them around something, and make some torches.”

“We’re not going in a dungeon, Uncle Victor!”

“Ben, I love you like a nephew, but shut-up. BIU’s are designed to survive in temps as low as -200 Fahrenheit. That slime-covering protects them.” Victor chuckled. “The downside is it’s highly flammable. Wave those flames and they won’t come near you.”

“Fire bad. Got it,” Kelly said.

“Oh, and Kelly? They know about the kill-switch, so be ready when you hit the control room.”

Something wet splattered the phone.

Chain Writing game

Not a chain letter or even a chain of fools, but the Chain Writing Game! The brainchild of Kerrie Salsac, a bunch of writers get together every week to create a story in 100-word chunks. Join in the fun, but hurry. We’re going to thirty then it gets capped off!

 

Hope you enjoy.

CWG 5: He’s Behind You – Ep. 18

Ben took the gun, hefting it to get a feel. Kelly ducked when the barrel pointed her way. “Whoa! Don’t point that at me, Rambo!”

“Sorry,” Ben said, face red. He gave her a goofy grin and pointed the pistol at the floor. “So who are you re-”

BLAM!

“Son of a mother pus-bucket!” Ben fell to the floor as fire engulfed his leg, a furrow in his jeans leaking blood all over.

Kelly sighed. She examined Ben’s calf. “It’s just a flesh wound,” she said in an affected British accent. “But no gun for you, Brave Sir Robin.”

Chain Writing game

We’re writing rom-com this week, Chain Writing Game-style. Sorry Kerrie, I had to shoot him a little. ‘Tis but a scratch (I know, I know…) Anyway, a little blood, a little cheap humor, and I’m done…unless she opens it up to more entries 😉 But I’d much rather see our little writing group grow, so join in!

 

Hope you enjoy.

Chain Writing Game: He’s Behind You – Ep.12

cubicles

Ben wilted under Tony’s hard stare. He twitched, as if he were about to bolt, but the lights flickered and dimmed. The lights came back, and Ben’s eyes widened in fear when another slime-covered monster appeared behind Tony.

“Behind you!” Kelly shouted.

Tony turned and a clawed hand swiped across his throat. A crimson waterfall cascaded from his throat as he gurgled and fell to the floor. Kelly popped off a couple of shots, but shock threw off her aim.

Ben fumbled around in Kelly’s purse for a grenade. He grabbed one, pulled the pin, and threw…the purse.
