Or not.

I knew something was up when I saw the mushroom cloud on the horizon.

Re: First Lines

At first, it was dark. Then I saw a light coming towards me, and whilst I had no idea what it was, all I knew was that it was moving fast.

Re: First Lines

When you've read as many books as me, you realize how phony first lines can be. So I won't.

Darrick stopped motionless in the shadows at the sound of footsteps outside the door.

I must keep going, he thought to himself, because if I don't, there's no telling what danger will befall her.

Re: First Lines

The day I died, it rained, just after I'd pegged out the washing. I'll admit, I thought things could be worse, but I didn't actually expect them to.

I threw myself down on the wet grass as something whistled overhead.

Re: First Lines

Sometimes, when I sit atop Aeirth Rock at night and look out into the Eastern Sea, I see the dim outline of ship approaching from far away, and a dark, cold fear snatches my heart; and when I see clearly that it's a turtle or some sort of the bird in the horizon, I feel joy, but also the foreboding thought still lingers inside: if my fate will ever stop chasing me.

The thin glass cylinder cracked easily between his teeth, unleashing a wave of almond-tasting bitterness onto the back of his throat; they would not take him alive.
