Mini Challenge #3: The last mini challenge of the day! For the third mini challenge we are going Mad Lib on you! Check out the scenario below and write down a corresponding word for each prompt.
One day, I was relaxing with the Darkling. Out of the blue, a spaceship came out of nowhere! It was so sleek, shiny and spacious. At first, we were afraid, we were petrified, but we laughed in the face of danger. We hopped on the Hummingbird to make our getaway.
As we escaped, we turned up the radio because Talk Dirty came on and made me giggle. Everything was extremely smooth sailing until a unicorn appeared in the middle of the road. We swerved to avoid it, but while the Darkling stayed on the Hummingbird, I got thrown onto my side in the woods.
I couldn’t get up, and felt hopeless as I lay there staring up at the trees. What was I going to do? I heard a growl among the leaves, and felt like a goner. Surely, this was going to be my end. As my eyes fluttered shut, the last thing I saw was a head of shining darkness hair and sapphire blue eyes.
When I woke up again, I was on a four-poster bed. My body hurt a whole lot less, and I could sit up. There was a Warlock and a kitten in the room, along with cheeseburgers and wine. The door suddenly opened to reveal Tucker Avery, a concerned look on his face. I blushed and averted my gaze, but he put down his fishing gear and said, “Don’t be shy. It’s okay.”
He came over to sit by me, and we started talking after I told him my name. We chatted about horseback riding, making out in canoes and spending the entire summer gazing into each other’s eyes and realized we had a ton in common! I thought he was the perfect cowboy and couldn’t help feeling a little swoony.
Just as he reached out for my hand, the door crashed open and in came Dimitri Belikov. “Don’t let him charm you away, my love!” He yelled, running at Tucker. They each had spatulas in their hands and began to fight. “Stop!”, I yelled, feeling so strangely aroused. They didn’t listen to me. Before I could intervene, Tucker fell to the floor and disappeared in a cloud of smoke.
“What was that?” I asked, staring at the empty space. Dimitri dropped his weapon, and came over to me. “Magic, but you are safe now, Freckles” He hugged me close, and I suddenly knew that this was the real deal and not just a dream.
Just as Can You Feel the Love Tonight started playing in my head, I woke up. I cursed my aunt Gertrude’s luck. Why had it only been just a dream?
