Ok, so the idea of a game where people post one paragraph each to make a story came up. I'm up for the challenge! *throws hands up fighter style*
Miscellany of miscellany
There was once a man who was very Mysterious (yes, with a captial m)! He had a hat and cane of no particular description. Everywhere he went, he was surrounded by vagueties who were doing naught of vague importance. What was important, were the myriad question marks that wouldn't stop following him everywhere, on account of his aura of majestic mystery. Or is that confusing mystery? It is mysterious, after all.
So the man walked the desolate streets, wandering into allys, meeting nothing but Silence
"Hi Silence" he said
"Hello" answered Silence
"What have you been up to?"
"Nothing much, just cursing my parents for giving me a stupid name"
"That's a damn shame,"the mystery man said,"You've got one up on me, I don't even HAVE a freakin' name."
"Well...err I guess I have to agree with you on that one,"Silence muttered, stunned.
"So...Silence, what are you doing in back alleys?,"he asked, giving her the once over and noticing her low-cut top.
"What are YOU doing in back alleys,"Silence snarked, hiking down her skirt in an attempt to look less conspicous, or is that skanky?
"Hey, I asked you first you mouthy bitch!,"Mystery Man retorted, the fist holding the cane going white-knuckled.
"...."Silence was silent at the terminology in that remark. Somehow, he just couldn't bring himself to break the mysterious man's dellusion.
