Write about an event from the point of view of three different characters.
The event can be anything - although try to keep it concise - and you should try to make each point of view clearly different from the others.
“You must be joking? Our little girl would never do a thing like this?” Brenda said.
Det. Lee looked our at his partner. Det. Badlands extended a hand as they outlined the details of the case. Brenda’s eyes grew wide as they explained the plot her daughter planned against them.
Their words slipped over her. The edges of her vision darkened and sounds disappeared. Thoughts of Lily filled her bra...
There’s things we don’t even know, people around us who contribute to the pain.
“Genesis, how can you continue to trust these people, they only ever wanted to hurt us”.
I look at my sister with weary eyes. She’s to trusting, to forgiving.
She looks at me as if she were trying to comfort my mind.
“One thing they will never get from me is fear. I won’t allow them that power over me”.
I sit and ...
My heart thudded violently against my chest, pounding in my ears. I gasped and felt my hands shaking as they rose to cover my mouth. The boy in front of me merely smiled awkwardly, pulling his hand out from behind his back and holding out a single rose.
“So what do you say?” Levi questioned, looking into my eyes. I couldn’t believe what was happening. I felt tears springing into my eye...
What a beautiful wedding
The bride was blushing
The groom was gushing
And the guests went wild with glee
The wedding was a disaster
Bridzilla was a cruel master
Poor Groom lacked luster
Leaving the guests a bluster
My precious daughter is gone
Wedding now over with a song
Leaving me with bills too long
Love went right, not wrong
Part I: Jason Strange. The victim.
I can’t take it anymore! I’ve been treated like a clown in his cell for the past six months, and now I’m desperate for freedom. I’m becoming more irritable, banging the iron bars harder than a boss slams his fist on a desk in anger. My teeth are clenched, my eyes are wide and my face is red. I began to kick the iron bars repeatedly. After a few harsh, bleeding m...
This was bad, horrible, horrendous, terrifying. The body of my best friend was propped against the wall blood splattered everywhere. Without thinking I called the police and they arrived in minutes. Me and my two other friends were both taken into interrogation. I was sweating profusely as o waited for my turn. Praying that I don’t look suspicious.
Here I was, sitting in a uncomfortable metal ch...
Mom: I can’t believe it! All day I’m hard at work keeping this house running - cooking, cleaning, organizing, doing laundry, making sure everyone has their homework - and when I ask my son to come set the table for dinner, he ignores me! When he finally answers my call, he comes barreling in like a football player and knocks the whole plate of burgers I just brought in from the grill off the count...
It's nothing we've ever seen before, not on the Celeste at any rate. This is... it's just plain gruesome, obviously, and I guess it's really sad for the Mistrals. But that's honestly about it. I don't quite understand why Zephyr's shivering like this room is the coldest place they've ever been, or why Leo's giving the two of us those looks. Maybe it's 'cause I'm not reacting much, maybe it's just ...
[Angus - Kevin’s colleague. A psychic with extrasensory perception. Had recently joined a security company as a “Calmer”, a specialist in calming spiritual activity in properties.]
They arrived at the property they were to inspect today. The heavy rain outside trickled down the walls of the warehouse.

Angus fidgeted, cursing himself for not taking a quick break before he...
Charlie couldn’t understand why Gunnar was fighting him on this. It was obviously just a weather balloon that had popped or malfunctioned or something, falling back to earth. It was the most logical explanation. Why did people always want to make more out of things that’s they should, he wondered? Not every light in the night sky is an alien. Not every branch that snaps in the forest is Bigfoot. H...
