The premise of this thread is simple: a dynamic story that never ends. Posters take turns adding to the story where the one before left off. It is assumed that everybody will be mature in doing so and not be idiots or party poopers. Keep it respectable. It can be anything, really - I'll start it off very open-ended. It can be dramatic, humorous, ironic.. doesn't matter. It could be a number of things! Please refrain from posting just one or two sentences at a time but in the same aspect, try not to post 20 paragraphs at once. Also, you're not allowed to reply to yourself. When adding to the story, quote the last post that you are adding to in an attempt to prevent possible confusion!
(As of this first post, there is no plot. It's up to you as to how it develops!)
Avoiding the usual bums and panhandlers at the street corners and under the bridges, James Bell walked slowly to the convenience store a few blocks down from his loft in New York City. He was drawn into himself, trying to make sense of the last few days. Could he even face his family again? And what about Emily? He would have to sort through the events and face his consequences soon. Something has been happening to him lately, something that he can't explain. As he entered the store he saw that it was unusually crowded for a Tuesday morning. Oh crap! Is it really Tuesday? James glanced at the newspaper rack.
