The challenge with this one is to write a short story, no less than 200 words and no more than 500, starting with the sentence you are given. You're not allowed to change that sentence, not even if it's grammatically awful. It's an exercise in developing interesting characters and an engaging plot based solely off a [hopefully dynamic, or you're in a bit of trouble] first sentence. And then you provide the sentence for the next person to start with. I was given an exercise very like this [though with a different word limit] in English class in my last year of school... I was the only excited one in the class [but then, I was the only one with any interest in writing]. The first "First Sentence" is this: He was dead; she knew this as a fact - yet there he stood, very much alive.
