A long time ago (early 2001), RicP created the "Build-a-Story" thread (I think when we moved to VB for that short time) and it was soon corrupted by Jason_Whyte and myself. Posted Image Another thread was created by myself (as the first thread broke) and then quickly died. The other day I thought to myself "Why not create another game of 'Build-a-Story'?" and here it is. There are some rules to go over first....

1) There's a three sentence limit to every post. Please do not go over three sentences in each post of yours.
2) You can't reply to what you posted. You have to wait for somebody else to reply to your post until you can reply again.
3) Please stay on topic to what's already going on to the story.
New Rule 4) Only edit your post if somebody posted right before you and you have to change it to flow with the rest of the story (I'm looking right at you Kevin Potts). Posted Image

With those rules in place, let me begin.

The girl begins to scream and everybody in the store gathers around to watch this with some people holding video camcorders.
