Question 3: What story will you tell? (max 250 words)

Read the instructions. Continue the story.

Here is the beginning of a short story we’d like you to continue it by writing the next few sentences. But here’s the important bit, we want you to invite a reaction from the audience. Make them cry, make them laugh, make them scared, whichever you chose but make them want to know more…

You can finish the story or just continue it, but don’t write more than 250 words.
