Hello everyone. I'm writing a story about a boy who acquires a special object which changes his life forever. The object's origin is a mystery but he has to acquire it somehow. Initially I just wrote he tripped over it, but he should come across it in a more exciting way. What if it fell out of the sky, like a flaming meteor or something? I think that seems rather cliché. There must be countless ways a boy could happen upon a special object...I'm just not seeing them. What are some potential exciting alternatives to it falling out of the sky?
