"story-time" is back again...


I had almost forgotten all about the 'storytime' tradition i used to follow on my blog until someone reminded me that i havent been holding our collective-creativity sessions since the last few months...so with all due apologies, lets gear up once again and start weaving ;)

STORYTIME-5 IS HERE!!
anyways here are the rules for those firsttimers who arnt yet familiar with it and also for those who have forgotten...
--->i will start with a line...a random sentence and u guys have to spin a yarn around it...got the picture??

--->each of u will have to contribute one line after another...and continue the flow of the story...

--->u can comment however as many number of times as u want but make sure that there shouldent be two 'consecutive' lines contributed by the same person...and also each comment should have just ONE line of the story...

--->anyone and everyone (this includes first-timers to 'nostalgic moments' and non-bloggers too)is allowed and requested to contribute...just make sure u go with the flow...and would appreciate if u leave ur name or ID behind so that we have atleast that to associate ur talent with ;)

--->the characters in our story can be given names as long as they dont keep changing :p..so make sure u read the comments before u before contributing ur own...new characters can be added...

--->u can make sure of any form of writing--direct, indirect or both...

--->u can write anything u want but please keep in mind not to write anything offensive as it is against the ethics of my blog...also make sure u dont include anything that wud hurt the sentiments of fellow bloggers :)

--->make sure u just put nothing but 'ur line' in the comment section...

--->please do not be hellbent on taking only ur idea forward by ignoring the other comments on the way...remember 'storytime' a joint effort and the point is to go with the flow...so just in case ur idea gets neglected along the way, do not take offence and strike back with a vengeance by deviating from the flow and sticking to ur point--thatll only make it senseless...and remember we are here to make sense from the nonsense :p


--->please try to wrap the story up by 8.00 pm---14th april (tuesday)...if not urs truly will be compelled to put up a crappy ending of her imagination(u know how pathetic my stories are and often they dont even have happy endings..so dont say i dint warn u! heehee)

On 14th april at exactly 8pm IST, i will collect all the contributions, as they are and in the same particular order from the comment section and post them...and voila!! lo and behold! there will be, OUR VERY OWN PROUD STORY!!...heehee


so gear up and get ready to create the wackiest, funniest, strangest story of all times :D
it could turn out to have tragedy, drama, romance, humour...but the best part is its going to be UNPREDICTABLE! and can twist with every single line...somewhat like life eh??
so lets get started........

so presenting before u the line which starts it all ;) *drumrolls in the background*

"do u believe in ghosts?" amar asked his newly wedded wife avani as they entered their new plush apartment--coincidently the only one on the 13th floor..


cheers and keep it rolling! :D

Avani laughed nervously and asked Amar why he was thinking of ghosts when they were about to begin their life together?

Chriz said...

"but the watchman told something wierd about this apartment"

Meera said...

"come on amar,forget about it.lets get in and start unpacking",said avani,not wanting to believe the watchman.

Arv said...

Avani's words sounded like an echo to Amar for his mind was filled with strange visions that had haunted his childhood.

иidhi S said...

At least one thing was good, that Avani knew nothing about that part of his past.

Momsy said...

A past that was more than a fleeting memory...a series of events which Ajoy da, his constant companion and the family's trusted aide always dismissed as Amar's fertile imagination...until that stormy night 19 years ago...

иidhi S said...

...When one night, after hours of no sleep, 9 yr old Amar, heard strange voices coming from the next door neighbor's. Only a wall separated their rooms. He knew people said that their son was strange, but strangely enough he had never seen or felt his presence ever.

Mayz said...

but amar went back to sleep realising it was d neighbours dog rambo tryin to hit on avani

иidhi S said...

@ Mayz - DUH... (its when Amar was 9 yrs old)

Srivats said...

its the first time amar realised his ability to see the unseen, hear the unheared. He was part of the mysterious world already.

иidhi S said...

He didnt even realise when he left his body and was alredy travelling to the neighbor's room, where their son was confined... and what he saw dere...

Butterfly Thoughts said...

Amar...Amarrrrr.. help me lift this box.Its pretty heavy.God knows what all this packer guy has stuffed in this...Avani's irritated voice brought Amar back to his apartment on the 13th floor...

Butterfly Thoughts said...

Amar...Amarrrrr.. help me lift this box.Its pretty heavy.God knows what all this packer guy has stuffed in this...Avani's irritated voice brought Amar back to his apartment on the 13th floor...

dreamscapes said...

he went to try his hand in lifting the box up and when he was about to place it on the table, a big scream was heard and he dropped the box. Inside the box he saw..

Pri said...

a mega-size makeup kit---"LIAR", he thought, "she told me she does'nt use makeup"...

Anonymous said...

but what amar did not know was that there was a much bigger secret associated with avani and the makeup box.

Dr. Chandana Shekar said...

Amar thought, why the hell did avni lie to him? and what else other than the make up box was in the bigger box that he tried to lift?

Pri said...

just then there was a knock on the front door...

A said...

it was the watchman ramu "memsaab i heard a scream, everything is okay na?"

Dr. Chandana Shekar said...

"ya, everything is" said avni and shut the door, yet wondering how the watchman heard the sound of a box that fell on the 13th floor!!!

Pri said...

it was raining heavily outside---lightening, thundering and just then asif to complete the story, there was a power failure!!

Blog Boy said...

It was dark and she was searching for a candle then suddently she felt the presence of inexplicable phantasmal.

C R D said...

She gulped, raised her hand in slow motion to grope at whatever or whoever it was, but to no avail, till she finally heard a hissing sound and felt her pyjama wet at the sleeves.




"Damn you Fluffy!!!", she yelled in anger....

Pri said...

but to amars surprise, all he could see was avani was groping at thin air at something which probably only she could see...

C R D said...

with his mouth wide open in awe at what he saw in front of him, he asked her "avani..Aaj mahashivtratri thode hi na hai..taandav kyu kar rahi ho?"

Pri said...

he expected avani to laugh at the joke but all he got in return was a cold stare as avanis eyes started rotating 360 degrees---and a cackling laugh was heard from somewhere outside the window.

C R D said...

He went towards the window, and what he saw outside made him fall on the floor with a thud.

He sat motionless for 10 seconds...twenty..thirty..and then he looked at his wristwatch and said, "Time to take my Diarrhoea medication...want some?"

Aparajita Bhattacharya (Administrator) said...

Avani looked at Amar as though he was raving mad.

C R D said...

She licked her lips and said ........"gimme the last bite darling"

Dr. Chandana Shekar said...

and amar turned completely pale..

Srivats said...

Right then "It" all happened, right out of nowhere, "It" came No sooner Amar and avani realised its no more in thier control.

Butterfly Thoughts said...

The storm which was out of their control.The storm that brought back all the memories that Amar had dreaded since childhood.His neighbour's son who though was disabled but had a strange power.

C R D said...

the power to sing lullabies in a heavy metalesque grunt

Ria said...

and something which amar never wanted to remember had come to his after such a long time.

squall said...

Avani sensed the change in amar and asked "what happened honey? anything wrong?"

C R D said...

He looked at her with fear in his eyes and asked in a trembling voice "Can i borrow ur make up kit please?"

Srivats said...

For she knows at some level, he wanted the make up at that time. For make up meant change of identity , change from Amar to someone who is revealing his character already within him. With trembling hands she hands him the kit.

Pri said...
