Your character has a highly embarrassing accident, and the person who comes to save them just happens to be the person they have a crush on.
This should be entertaining and humorous from the outset. How do your characters interact, and how do they move forward?
I don’t know what I was thinking. Why did I think it would be a good idea to bring my cat to school? At the time I was thinking “Little Sunny is so sweet and calm, if I sneak her into my school bag and bring her to the school play rehearsal, no one will even notice!” Well, it didn’t work out like that. Instead, I’m chasing her around the school because she got out of my bag and now I have to find ...
“Ouch” I mutter. Not again. I stumbled over a tree. A tree. My second name isn’t ‘clumsy’ for no reason. I try to get up but… what is that? Am I stuck? I can’t move my right leg. Am I damned to die alone in a forest, eaten by bugs? I knew this day would come. The day where my clumsiness is killing me. No, I am not overdramatic. I have gotten so many bruises in my lifetime, it wouldn’t be surprisi...

The teacher smiled at them. “Nice work, Elijah! That’s correct!”
Elijah pumped his fist. “Yes.” He whispered.
Everyone in the class laughed. Except for Jenna. All she could do was stare at h...
In her mind she was another Kristi Ymaguchi. She thought she was so beautiful and graceful on the ice, and when she skated she was sure everyone was admiring her.
A triple lutz. A sit spin. A double toe loop. She could do them all and loved to show them off at the mall ice rink in her rhinestone studded costume.
She especially loved skating there when Charlie was working the snack bar. He was ...
I was in lunch and somebody tripped fell and got ketchup
Laughter rang out and I became as red as the ketchup but no one came to help. I started to stand slowly when he stuck his hand out for me. I looked up at him and took it, rising to my feet. He grabbed a napkin and helped clean it off my arms while I did my face.
Omg he’s so hot.
Why me why me why me.
At one point he cau...
I took one last long drag, ashed the cigarette on the underside of my boot. I had promised myself I wasn’t gonna come here anymore….but here I am. Big Tony’s Tap and Grill. A cesspool in the cities underbelly. I had questions and Buig Tony had answers. I stumbled through the doorway, tripped on my own feet like a schmuk. I was hoping to enter the joint discreetly but I smacked my forehead off the ...
