Opening Lines

We wrote an opening line for the picture below. Add yours!


Liz: I don’t know who was more surprised – me or the masked woman I caught trying to break into my basement window.

Barb: Who could forget those eyes? Luminescent, blue. But the last time I’d seen them, they’d been wide with surprise as I released her hands and she plummeted to a certain death forty stories below.

Jessie: Dark thoughts filled her mind as she watched the town plow plug the end of her newly shoveled driveway with a three foot bank of snow.

Edith: You are getting sleepy, very sleepy. When you awake, you will do my bidding and only my bidding.

Sherry: When the prodigal bank robber, dubbed the blue-eyed bandit, returned home she was stunned to find an FBI agent at the door instead of her mom.

Julie: For the first time in her life, she prayed for a blizzard. It was her only hope of covering up the evidence. And she’d be gone before the thaw.
