Add to the story! 🍃

Hi fellow writer berries! :grin:
I absolutely love @autumn.leaves post, ‘Add to the story in Amharic.’ :green_heart:
So this is an idea inspired by her post!
Were going to write a story together, one sentence at a time. :hugs: I’ll leave the decision of when to close the story and start a new one up to you guys. If you think it’s getting boring, or not really going anywhere, then just stop and start fresh.
Xx

I’ll start-

“Savannah!” A scream echoed through the air as gunshots rang painfully in my ear.

“Savannah!” A scream echoed through the air as gunshots rang painfully in my ear.
I grimaced and crouched behind a crumbling brick wall, hoping that [name_u]Jack[/name_u] would be able to find me even though I had to be silent.

It must of cost a fortune, especially in these times, it was smooth and silver, with mine and his initials carved into it.

hey I just wanted to ask when dowe finish the story and start a new one, or do we stick with this one?

@Vintage_Vibes

I should have mentioned that! I’ll leave that decision with you guys. If you feel the story has nothing much to give, go ahead and start a new one!

I desperately wanted to answer him but this had happened too many times before and I knew what would happen if I betrayed my hiding place.

The rays of the early summer sun reflected off the windows of the old minivan as it made its trek through the familiar twists and turns down the gravel road.

I forced my eyes to zero back on the van getting progressively smaller.
