The Greatest Story Ever Written (one sentence at a time)

Postby timonan » Wed Apr 09, 2008 6:07 am UTC

This story is written one sentence at a time. One sentence only (and please wait for a few replies before re-posting). Could be descriptive, could be setting a scene, could be dialogue. Feel free to guide the plot development, history of the characters, psychological makeup, etc in any direction you wish, but try to keep some sort of believable narrative thread going.

Also, no side comments (unless they're discreet). Just one sentence to add to the story.

Here goes...



The quiet morning was alive with possibility as Ellie stumbled out the front door.

The sun shined bright, the trees softly swayed with the breeze as the cherubs sung sweet hymns, twas a new day.

Unlike most new days, today was one that Ellie would not soon forget.
Why put off till today what you could just as easily get done tomorrow?

I can mathematically prove that 1 equals 0!.

Parts a-x in my plan weren't that important anyways.

A cat softly brushed up against her legs as she stepped forward, mewing softly, asking plaintively for food as all cats do.

The cat purred in appreciation at this gesture, and, with a swish of his tail, left Ellie's leg for the bowl of fresh milk.
A good pun is its own reword.

Ellie's attention was then diverted by something she had been waiting for all day.

'Oh dear Lord', thought Ellie, 'I do hope TESCO have ceased trading enriched uranium and that accelerating lorry contains only genetically modified carrots, and no radioactive materials.'

As the mugger demands Ellie's money, she quickly pulls out a can of mace, sprays the attacker in the face, and flees down the street.

Unfortunately, she trips over her untied shoelaces and falls badly, breaking her arm.

'It's not broken!' he screeched chirpily, with the fire of a thousand suns blazing in his purple, cold, dead eyes, and calmly unpeeled a ripened banana with a genuine Aztec toddler's bowie knife

"Put that bowie knife down right now!", a stern voice suddenly bellowed from a dark alley beside them.

Before she could react however, the policeman threw his bowie knife with deadly accuracy, decapitating Darth Vader instantly.

Or... wait... was it her mother - it was so hard for her to tell the difference now her mother had hit the menopause.

Although, of course, her mother had known connections to an intergalactic organisation bent on domination of the entire universe, and extermination of the rebel forces, while her father was a simple greengrocer.

The real reason it could not have been her father was due to the fact he was decapitated by hell-bent vengeful velociraptors in 'Nam in '67.

She screams in agony - she landed right back on her arm, possibly breaking it again - she then rolls rapidly neatly avoiding the policeman's outstretched arms.

This face did not stay beautiful for long, however, as he quickly transmogrified into a Kraken of sorts.

Having absolutely NO idea what a Kraken was, she got to her feet, turned around, completely ignoring the thing with a Kraken face, and returned on her journey to the store, attempting to remember what it was she was going there for.

Reminding herself to google "kraken" when she returned to her radioactive house, she thought to herself "I really feel like Nachos now" and continued on her merry way.

Noticing that the voice in her head did not finish with quotation marks, only elipses, she waited for more from the voice...
