Re: First Lines

The ground beneath my feet cracked ominously, as though I was standing on a very thin layer of ice, and I looked down just in time to see the earth swallow me up.

Re: First Lines

As the star shell burst overhead, I glanced around at the faces of my comrades. It's true, there are no atheists in a foxhole.

Re: First Lines

"Lieutenant: what have you done?"

As the black fog drained away from the edges of my mind, I dropped the hammer and looked around; first at the horrified face of my sergeant, mirrored oddly by those of the rest of the platoon crowding into the engine-room; then at the smashed injection nozzles of the main hyperdrive.

Humphrey took another look from the top of the spiralling staircase, as if trying to grasp all the memories attached to the old apartment; soon his memory would blank.

Re: First Lines

He pulled on one of the lines to see if it led back to his memory. Like broken porcelain, the intricate web of his memories lay shattered. A thrumming on one of the threads caused him to turn around and he could see the darker side of himself crawl from out of the gloom. How am I going to get out of this one?

The ocean gurgled happily as the U-boat skulked down beaneath the waves to the sanctuary of the seabed.

Re: First Lines

That morning, I opened my eyes to look directly up into the face of the one who would take my life.

Re: First Lines

Conrad parked his car and walked a few short steps to the front of a perfectly ordinary terraced house. He knocked once, paused and then knocked twice more. A middle aged woman opened the door and beckoned him in. Behind her, out of sight of the street, two armed guard stood to attention, beyond them a door opened onto a room lined with desks, telephones and monitors, further back a tall, steel, foot thick door stood ajar revealing stairs that led down into the darkness.

Re: First Lines

The Sword of Power was broken, the Chosen was slain, and the Dread Warlock has conquered all; I wasn't sure what else could go wrong today.

Re: First Lines

Deep yet comical Dexter.

I was running through the darkness, I heard the his voice calling my name. "Sophia!" My heart pounded, gasping for breath I ran on. The rocks scraped my already bloodied feet. "Stop Sophia!" I looked back, he was gaining on me. Big mistake I fell to the ground. He stood over the top of me smiling. "Now, now Sophia. I'm not going to hurt you...much."
I woke up screaming, sticky with sweat. Just a nightmare. I nighmare that was actually going to happen...I just didn't know it yet.

Re: First Lines

Let me begin by telling you that what knowledge i am about to divulge will destroy your soul.
I can safely say that ,because it has happend to me.
The ending you will like even less.

You see ,you will not read the ending:by that time you will be dead.
And so will everybody else.

Re: First Lines

@ mirinda: You are too kind. Mostly I'm deep (read plush) about the middle!

The dragon peeked around a crag of the mountain at the small line of horses and dismounted riders that were approaching his summer lair.
