Can you tell a story?

Galadriel started this ...
"
She wondered if she could ever count each of the twinkling stars in the night sky. The clock in the tower struck 9. She had to get back to reading her text book, ignoring the weird grumbling noises her stomach was making. The flickering orange street light looked like it would go put any minute."

Rayshma followed ...
"she considered her options. she cud complete reading before the light died on her. or she cud eat. or of course, she could attempt to count the stars. it was in the midst of this contemplation that her phone buzzed. books aside, hunger aside... she now focussed on the screen. should she answer... she wondered."

And she decided to tag me!! So here goes ...

She decided to let it ring.. must be her mother calling to find out if she was alright. She was really tired of her mom checking on her four times every day! And then she heard it, a blood curdling scream filled the air. There were sounds of running feet ,followed by another shrill scream!

And now I tag ... Dottie. I want to see where this goes.. keep me posted! Oh and the
tag is to take the story ahead in EXACTLY 55 words. And if you want to bash up someone.. you know where to look!! Look for the lady who started this trail!!

ooh.. i see this story certainly isn't turning out the way i had envisioned it. that's not to say it isn't better! :P
people, c'mon now. have some mercy. the true inspiration for this post was an argument i had with rayshma, so she's the one who deserves a beating, if anyone does. but i am a gandhivaadi so pls to not beat anyone. :)

No G, no bashing - I am wondering were the story goes to - though perhaps it shall never end, unless we hit all the blogs in the blogdom! :)

BTW, nice twist Preethi - now the reader is hooked - who screamed, why? etc Come on - Dottie, tell us! :)
