Story Time

For this writing assignment I had to write a story starting with the ending and then going back to the beginning. I decided to write a story that combined my host character and two of my friend’s host characters.

Bridget asks the Death Whisperer why she is in Johnny’s basement. The Death Whisperer replied “I looked for you at your house but you weren’t there. So I followed you here to America and decided to stop by at Johnny’s place.” Bridget asked her why she was looking for her and got the response “I’ve been waiting to take you with me and now that I have found you we can go together.”

Eve Winters was on her way to the airport to pick-up her friend, Bridget Lloyd. Bridget was visiting from London and hadn’t seen Eve in a while. They were pen-pals and had visited each other and became friends because they both have dark pasts. Eve’s older half-brother was the serial killer Bloody Face and Bridget was locked in an insane asylum because her father didn’t want her after her mother died. On the drive back to Eve’s house the girls were talking about what they had been up to lately. They got to Eve’s house and Bridget was settling in when Johnny, Eve’s older half-brother, called her. He said that he needed help and that Eve should get to his house as soon as possible.

Eve and Bridget jumped back in the car and went over to Johnny’s house. When they got there, Johnny directed them to his basement. There was a little girl sitting in the middle of the floor in Johnny’s basement, facing away from the stairs. Eve was about to yell at Johnny because she thought he had killed the little girl and needed help cleaning up the body when the little girl said something peculiar. “Hello Bridget. Long time, no see” the little girl moaned. Eve looked at Bridget’s face, stunned, and Bridget replied to the little girl with “Death Whisperer? It surely has been a while hasn’t it?” Eve was still staring at Bridget when she asked “you know this little girl?” and Bridget replied with “Yeah, she was my constant companion in Fogg’s Asylum.”

Bridget asks the Death Whisperer why she is in Johnny’s basement. The Death Whisperer replied “I looked for you at your house but you weren’t there. So I followed you here to America and decided to stop by at Johnny’s place.” Bridget asked her why she was looking for her and got the response “I’ve been waiting to take you with me and now that I have found you we can go together.”

This assignment was really difficult because I didn’t even know where to begin my story or what to write about. I decided who I wanted to include in the story and then went from there. Overall, this assignment really pushed me to be more creative and think backwards by starting with the end.
