Help me write a collaborative piece of Twitter Flash Fiction. #MQFlash

Let's have a little fun. 

Here's how it'll work.

The following tweet is the first sentence in a flash fiction story. You get to write the next line. What will it be?

All you have to do is reply to this tweet with your line. I will choose the next line from the replies. After that, I will tweet the next line, giving the author credit,  and blog about it as I have done with this first line. The process will repeat.

Since I will need space to put your Twitter handle in the next tweet, please don't use all 140 characters (minus my Twitter handle, of course). Probably best to stop around 100 characters.

Since I used it in the first tweet, you may of course use #MQFlash if you wish, but I will only consider lines that are replied to the original—not some other random tweet that uses the hashtag. Just so there's no confusion.

And by the way, I'll pick lines that take into account what has already been written, so pay attention to the story as it is written.

Let's see what kind of crazy story we can come up with.

Are you game?
