It’s been a long time since I updated my page, Story Starters, so I added a few more today. Here are some of my favorites, but feel free to check out the page. 😀
#2: (Name 1)‘s eyes widened in horror. “How could you be so foolish?!” he/she hissed angrily. “I can’t believe you’d do something like that!”
(Name 2) shook his/her head. “It’s not what you think,” he/she protested meekly.
“It’s exactly what I think!” (Name 1) snapped. “You’ve doomed us all! Thanks to you, the (object) will be destroyed, and all of the (species or objects) with it! We’re all going to die,” he/she wailed, pacing around the room, then whirled on (Name 2). “We’re all going to die, and it’s all your fault!”
#6: The king/queen looked down from his/her throne and scowled. “Get this creature away from me!” Immediately, the guard grabbed the (animal – not human) and ran to the (place/object – ex. window, dungeon, hallway, etc).
#9: (Name)‘s eyes opened wide as he/she exclaimed, “Where on earth did you get a(n) (object/living thing) the size of that?!”
#11: Some days seem to last longer than others, especially when everything goes wrong. Take Friday, for example. The trouble started when my pet (animal – not human), (Name), got stuck in the (object/place – ex. chimney, bathroom, toy box, etc).
#19: “Throw it!” (Name 1) yelled to (Name 2).
(Name 2) launched the (object) into the air. (Name 1) stretched to catch it, but tripped/slipped and fell. (Name 2) skidded to a stop, watching the (object) about to hit the ground, and lunged forward, trying to catch it before it (past tense action – ex. exploded, cracked, dissipated, etc.).
Suddenly, a (body part – ex. hand, tentacle, etc.) stretched out from (direction) and snatched up the (object), pulling it back and out of sight.
#20: “You have a choice,” the (adjective) voice told (Name). “Sacrifice the (boy/girl/animal/object dear to the addressed character), and ultimately save everyone else, or sacrifice yourself to save (boy/girl/animal/object dear to the addressed character).”
(Name) hesitated, then stood up. “I don’t want to do this, but…” He/she sighed wearily. “Everything for the greater good.”
I have to say, though, #2 is my favorite. I hope you enjoy these! 😀
