Title: Continue the story above you
Post by: Hoplomancer on April 20, 2011, 03:16:11 PM
Rules: write one sentence to continue the story. You can write anything, but only one sentence, and try to make it make sense (it should in some way relate to previous sentences).

Also, much like in Rondo, anything written is canon, so you can't overrule previous posts (unless they don't make any sense or themselves contradict previous posts). Also, once something like a general setting develops, don't stray from it without good reason.

Start:

Jack was luckier than he was smart, which was the reason he was still alive despite numerous unwise choices.

For Jack you see was a thief, but he was no ordinary thief, he was the world's worst thief.

Hoping to elevate himself from this woeful status, he was now standing in front of the First State Bank, his hands in the pockets of his black hoodie sweatily gripping the small .38 caliber revolver that he had taken from his own senile grandmother with whom he had been living.

He kept thinking about the time he talked to Sly L Mantel, the world's best theif, who told him, "Ta be a good theif, ya just need to get the money and don't get caught."

Upon reflection under the pressure of the actual impending heist, he wondered if perhaps there was a bit more to it than Sly let on, and if Sly was actually the best thief as he claimed to be.

"Well," Jack said, "Do or die, says I," and he walked into the bank.

There was an agonizingly long line in front of each teller's window.

He felt like everyone was staring at him, as he took his place in one of the lines.

After an eternity he found himself in front of the teller's window, staring at the middle aged woman through the plexiglass shield.

"eh, Hello madam I represent the FGW Transportation Company, and I'm here to make a withdraw from our account."

The woman hands him a withdrawal slip, telling him to fill in his account number.

He fills in the number that he stole from work, and the woman take the slip and walks to the back.

Jack is truly startled to hear the woman say "everything seems to be in order sir, have a nice day" as she hands him an envelope containing $10,000

Not sure what to do now that he had succeeded, he stumbled back out of the bank, almost running into the security guard.


Title: Re: Continue the story above you

shortly after he leaves, a plainclothes courier arrives to make the very same withdrawal that Jack was mistakenly authorized for.

But, Jack doesn't realize that, since he's on his triumphant way to spend his new windfall.

The first thing he decides to buy is a ride the fuck out of town.


Title: Re: Continue the story above you

He hops on a bus which, oddly has only a few riders even at this peak hour.


Title: Re: Continue the story above you
Post by: Hoplomancer on April 28, 2011, 08:41:16 PM
Another man boards the bus as well, and despite the many empty seats, sits right next to Jack.

"Where you runnin' to Jack?" the man says.


Title: Re: Continue the story above you
Post by: Hoplomancer on June 22, 2011, 01:30:00 PM
"Howinthewhatthefuck do you know my name?" Jack says, startled.


Title: Re: Continue the story above you
Post by: Wizard on June 23, 2011, 02:49:25 PM
"Why, I'm your father, of course."
   Jack had never met his father but he knew that the man was a politician of sorts. Jack preferred the more honest trade of thievery. Dad continued, "Join me, and we can rule this city as father and son."


Title: Re: Continue the story above you
Post by: Hoplomancer on June 23, 2011, 03:36:00 PM
That was more than one sentence, but whatever. Anyway.

"If you're my father, then who is the man who raised me?" Asked Jack.


Title: Re: Continue the story above you
Post by: Wizard on June 25, 2011, 08:22:06 AM
Oops, forgot that rule.

"He's an alien invader," Dad says

"Umm," Jack says, "I think this is my stop," trying to get away from this crazy man as quickly as possible.


Title: Re: Continue the story above you
Post by: Wizard on July 08, 2011, 06:42:14 PM
"Look again Jack; the bus hasn't stopped."


Title: Re: Continue the story above you

"Alright, what do you want?" Jack asks.
