Chatterbox: Chirp at Cricket

New Game!

I don't know what this game is callled, but it's where I write a first sentence and everyone else continues the story by writing another sentence!

First sentence:

In a small, rundown house in Ireland, there was a patch of clovers.

The clovers were tended by a girl.

She was sweet and kind, always caring for the plants and animals around the house.

Then the famine came.

The girl was constantly starving, and had less time to take care of the wilting clovers and animals.

(Wow, this went dark quickly)

Then, one day, she saw a Fae.

The Fae murmured softly in a musical voice, "All is not lost, child. There is a way to stop the famine."

The girl turned toward the Fae, crying, "Oh, please, tell me how I can stop the famine! I'll do anything for you!"

"It will be difficult to do so," The Fae said in her ear, "but not impossible."

She gasped, breathing, "How? What must I find?"

"Not find," the Fae hissed ominously, "but take."

"Show me where to find this item," the girl begged, falling to the ground in despair.

"The only way will be to steal it..." The Fae hissed in the girl's ear, "Steal it...!"
