Default Hook em with the first 25 words...


Saw this on another "non-writing" forum and thought it was kinda fun. They only used 20 words but seeing as how the beginning of my story is 21 I thought I'd kick it up a notch...

I knew the letter meant I had to help him and his daughter, but this would mean, leaving with and trusting a stranger.

With all of the blood everywhere, she couldn't believe what she had done, until she saw the beating heart in the palm of her hand.

I couldn't believe I was standing their looking at a dead man. I had never seen a dead body. Salli touched by shoulder. I jumped.

Pulling the trigger was an easy task for Bentley. A loud bang erupted and the body went limp in his arms.

"I think that you're insane."
"I don't really care, now hurry up and kill me."
"Will do."

Lace fluttered around Annie's neck, she touched her throat. How did she know it was the last time it would feel exactly like this?

"No!" she screamed, as she raced down the street, arms flailing, away from the enormous flesh-eating teddy bear.

The fall from his bed hurt in the exact same way he imagined that getting beat up by an angry horde of gummy bears would.

Hahahaha! Oh, this one I liked.

Hmm . . .

Three cheese trees ate five fleas' knees, while eight tiny bees sneezed, "Please, oh, please!"

Life on this marshmallow cloud is getting too boring;I need to jump off and see what happens down there in the Lemonade sea.

Verk was nervous and twitchy. This was natural considering his situation. Not just in Hell, but in a Boss’s office in Hell

I was plummeting. Darkness coiled around my body; a cold, metal hand gently draped about my neck. The hand grew tighter, choking my very breath.

Me is resurrecting. *does a couple of creepy intonations*

The blade twirled, painting the air with delicate snowflake-swirls of blood.

"You double-crossing..."

Thunk!

"... back-stabbing..."

Thunk!

"... two-faced..."

Thunk!

"... son of a-"

THUNK!
