I have to tell you that I love the idea of this challenge, my family and I will sit and do MadLibs together for hours on end and laugh until we cry, so this is perfect!
One day, I was talking with Chaol. Out of the blue, a giraffe came out of nowhere! It was so big, tall and clumsy. At first, we were afraid, we were petrified, but we flailed. We hopped on lightrail to make our getaway.
As we escaped, we turned up the radio because We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together came on and made me sing. Everything was extremely smooth sailing until an alligator appeared in the middle of the road. We swerved to avoid it, but while Chaol stayed on lightrail, I got thrown onto my side in the woods.
I couldn’t get up, and felt dizzy as I lay there staring up at the trees. What was I going to do? I heard a crack among the leaves, and felt worried. Surely, this was going to be my end. As my eyes fluttered shut, the last thing I saw was a head of brown hair and grey eyes.
When I woke up again, I was on a couch. My body hurt a whole lot less, and I could sit up. There was a cat and fireplace in the room, along with chocolate and water. The door suddenly opened to reveal Gale, a concerned look on his face. I blushed and averted my gaze, but he nodded and said, “Don’t be shy. It’s okay.”
He came over to sit by me, and we started talking after I told him my name. We chatted about reading ,traveling and cooking and realized we had a ton in common! I thought he was handsome and couldn’t help feeling a little swoony.
Just as he reached out for my hand, the door crashed open and in came Mal. “Don’t let him charm you away, my love!” He yelled, running at Gale. They each had spoons in their hands and began to fight. “Stop!”, I yelled, feeling so annoyed. They didn’t listen to me. Before I could intervene, Gale fell to the floor and disappeared in a cloud of smoke.
“What was that?” I asked, staring at the empty space. Mal dropped his weapon, and came over to me. “Magic, but you are safe now, love.” He hugged me close, and I suddenly knew that this was the real deal and not just a dream.
Just as Everything Has Changed started playing in my head, I woke up. I cursed my terrible luck. Why had it only been just a dream?
I’m sitting here giggling over this (caffeine helps!) Thanks, bookish boys for your help! 😉
