Okay, it's time for the "round robin" story! We'll do it a little different than usual. I'll start the story, then it's up to YOU to finish it. Let's see how far we can go by next Monday. All you have to do is read what the people before you have written and then CONTINUE the story! It'll be fun to see what twists and turns come about.
Anyone can participate. And everyone who participates will be entered in a drawing for a fun prize. I'll keep the story open through next Sunday, March 18th.
If you do not have a blogger account, you might not be able to post. I'm not sure. You can try to post a comment by choosing anonymous. Just be sure to add your name at the bottom of your comment, so I'll know who to add into the drawing!
You can participate as many times as you'd like during the week.
Okay, here's the story beginning. Have fun!
Kendra Jackson took a deep breath before walking into the hotel ballroom to face her high school classmates from twenty years ago. She scanned the room looking for one person─Jim Chandler. Gazes turned her way, but she ignored them, as she floated across the room in her full-skirted black dress and Saks Fifth Avenue heels. Not a single person would know the truth─that she'd made her own dress and "borrowed" the shoes. She had a mission to accomplish, and she wanted to do it in style. In high school, she'd been the poor girl from the wrong side of town, the one most everyone shunned. Except Jim.
A few moments later, she spotted him sitting at a table with the other football jocks, cheerleaders, and spouses. Lifting her chin a bit higher, she steeled herself before taking the last few steps to invade their party. The conversation stilled. Ten pairs of eyes looked questioningly at her. Of course they didn’t recognize her. That was her intent. She forced a smile, hoping it looked sincere.
"Hello, Jim." She saw the moment he recognized her. The puzzled look gave way to a frown, then a huge grin.
