Mini Challenge #3: Mad Libs
I tried very hard to do this randomly and in true Mad Libs style. Confession – The first thing I wrote down for “pet name” was “Rover”, thinking that it meant for an animal and not significant other. I almost left it in there… Fun times!
One day, I was eating with Warner. Out of the blue, a bird came out of nowhere! It was so loud, stringy and silly. At first, we were afraid, we were petrified, but we swam. We hopped on our bikes.
As we escaped, we turned up the radio because Yankee Doodle came on and made me sleep. Everything was extremely smooth sailing until an orangutan appeared in the middle of the road. We swerved to avoid it, but while Warner stayed on his bike, I got thrown onto my side in the woods.
I couldn’t get up, and felt yelllow as I lay there staring up at the trees. What was I going to do? I heard a trickle among the leaves, and felt gracious. Surely, this was going to be my end. As my eyes fluttered shut, the last thing I saw was a head of blond hair and green eyes.
When I woke up again, I was on an ottoman. My body hurt a whole lot less, and I could sit up. There was a popsicle and lamp in the room, along with nachos and chai tea lattes. The door suddenly opened to reveal Levi, a concerned look on his face. I blushed and averted my gaze, but he laughed and said, “Don’t be shy. It’s okay.”
He came over to sit by me, and we started talking after I told him my name. We chatted about sang, cooked and swam and realized we had a ton in common! I thought he was pretty and couldn’t help feeling a little swoony.
Just as he reached out for my hand, the door crashed open and in came Four. “Don’t let him charm you away, my love!” He yelled, running at Levi. They each had rolling pins in their hands and began to fight. “Stop!”, I yelled, feeling so scary. They didn’t listen to me. Before I could intervene, Levi fell to the floor and disappeared in a cloud of smoke.
“What was that?” I asked, staring at the empty space. Four dropped his weapon, and came over to me. “Magic, but you are safe now, darling.” He hugged me close, and I suddenly knew that this was the real deal and not just a dream.
Just as “My Love” started playing in my head, I woke up. I cursed my blue luck. Why had it only been just a dream?
