Re: First Lines

Have you ever stood before a rampaging God and known in your soul 'I am unafraid'?

Re: First Lines

I thought I had their special trick all figured out. I watched them closely, took the most meticulous notes, I even tried to infiltrate their society to learn their utmost secrets.

But when it came down to it, I still didn't know how to make what they call a "telephone call".

Re: First Lines

Atop the seventh floor deck of the Starcruiser Montana, Erban eyed the burgeoning swell.
"You're mad," said his safety bot, Ryker. The starbeach isn't normalized in nano space.""
Erban tucked his surfboard under his arm and smiled. "Zero G? Zero Problem."

The note delicately pinned to the door fascinated Conrad. Taking more care than necessary, he pulled out the pins, letting the paper drop into his palm. The note read "Sorry" and nothing more.

It was only when the snow cleared that they found Billy Akehurst's body.

Re: First Lines

"Don't get eaten, get even!" yelled the man in orange. He stood in front of a bright poster with the same slogan. Mary stumbled into the crowd and pushed towards the church door, where the orange man waved a sheet full of signatures. He caught her eye and held out the paper, "Join the exterminators?"

Re: First Lines

I checked the kitchen calendar and dropped my tea, shocked. It was my turn to feed the chinchilla.

Re: First Lines

I now stand before the ruined city and ask myself, "Was it all worth it?".

Re: First Lines

Presents? What are those?

On my planet, I don't know what "presents" are. We don't give things to each other.

Because I am the only living creature on my planet.

I didn't think I could die a second time. I was wrong...

Re: First Lines

I had the strangest feeling that I had already been through this, but I know I've never been to Antarctica before.

And why was I duct taped without clothes to an iceberg?

Re: First Lines

The monk stared in horror at his bloodied hands. Blood dripped bright crimson from the tip of the blade that lay on his open right palm.
