My 6 word autobiography: Seeking ways to make a difference. This blog provides more information packed comments than possible in blog comments. I'm not an expert in any field but interested in many. Content is open to correction if needed.
I always enjoy a good story beginning. You asked us to predict what might happen next. I love a writing challenge.
Here is what 4KM and 4KJ shared…
The door creaked as Sam carefully pushed it open. It took a few moments for Sam’s eyes to adjust to the dark. Her heart was beating rapidly and she could hear herself breathing heavily.
Sam’s mind was racing with thoughts of what she might find inside the small room. She made herself take a step forward. Suddenly, something caught her eye and she jumped…
My prediction of what happened next…
A voice was heard, “What brings you here child?”
Recovering from her initial surprise, Sam studied the little creature before her. It was small and green but it’s care-worn face spoke of wisdom and great age. Not human-like yet, somehow, it seemed familiar, at least to Sam’s eyes.
Again the voice, “Are you deaf, child? What brings you here?”
“I… I… I…”, Sam couldn’t bring herself to say more.
“Strange child, you have but two eyes yet you speak of three. Where is your third eye? Is it on the back of your head?”
“You… you… you…”, Sam was still lost for words.
“First three eyes and now you speak of sheep. What a strange creature you are. You are a giant with long string on your head. Your fur is of different colours and your feet are hard and leathery. Can you not speak more?” the creature asked.
Sam finally recovered, “I beg your pardon. You surprised me when I first saw you. I have two eyes and no sheep. The string is my hair, the fur my clothing and the hard and leathery feet are shoes.”
“Finally,” the small creature smiled. “Who are you?”
“I’m Sam. Are you who I think you are?” she asked.
“I’m who I think I am. Who do YOU think I am?” the creature asked.
“Are you Alice’s caterpillar?” Sam asked hesitantly.
“Yes,” came the reply. “The White Rabbit sent me to remind you you’re late. Come, we must go.”
My challenge to anyone interested: Now, what do you think Sam did next?
