5 Sentences Equal a Story (part 2)

Posted in Stuff n Junk at 9:31 PM by Amy~la

I was bored, again, so I did something that I’ve only done once before. I picked five random books, opened to page 100, wrote a sentence down, and wrote a story using those 5 sentences. Here are the original sentences and books.

  • Pip is right about the tower: it’s magnificent. The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray
  • The snow, the cold, it was exhilarating. Magic or Madness by Justine Larbalestie
  • Now there were three of us sitting in the waiting room waiting to hear how Dally and Johnny were. The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
  • By seeming to be friendly with Pilkington he had forced Frederick to raise his price by twelve pounds. Animal Farm by George Orwell
  • I loaded the water, one bottle at a time, into the pack, my motions unnecessarily deliberate; I added the remaining granola bars just as slowly. The Host by Stephenie Meyer

And here is my story:

Where was I? The snow, the cold, it was exhilarating. I ran into a bunch of people that looked at me strangely. There was a girl named Pip that told me about this tower that I had to check out. I hitched-hiked to the tower. The only thing I could think of was, “Pip is right about the tower: it’s magnificent.” When I was finished gawking over the tower, I caught a cab ride. The driver was going on about something like “By seeming to be friendly with Pilkington he had forced Frederick to raise his price by twelve pounds.” That was when the driver of the cab hit two people. Their names were Dally and Johnny. We rushed to the hospital. A couple hours passes and now there were three of us sitting in the waiting room waiting to hear how Dally and Johnny were. When it was announced that they would live, I decided that I needed to leave. I went to a house and found water, granola bars, and a backpack. I loaded the water, one bottle at a time, into the pack, my motions unnecessarily deliberate; I added the remaining granola bars just as slowly. After I loaded everything, I just walked. I walked until my water and granola bars were gone. Then I just fell. I was lying in the middle of a road when my mother picked me up and drove me home.
