Flash Fiction Challenge: And Now, The First Sentence, Please


Last week I asked you for the last sentence of a story.

This week, I’m asking you for the first sentence of a different story.

How this will work is this:

Next week, I will pick ten of each, allowing you to then randomly choose from that selection for an opening and final sentence to a short story you’ll write.

But that means we need another sentence that will start this unwritten story.

So, get to doing that.

You again have one week.

Due by Friday, August 25th, noon EST.

Pop the sentence in the comments below. Please only one sentence, and keep it to under 13 words long. You may begin.
