Good Morning everyone. Today is the Longest day, or Summer Solstice
So it seemed a great time to do another One Sentence Story
This one is about The Summer Solstice and you may recognise one or two people involved.
It's your story so make it as mad, silly, weird, funny or creepy as you like.
You are only allowed to post one sentence and then wait for the next person to post another sentence before posting again.
I've set the scene below, so away we go......
Four friends - Marty, Luke, Terry (who was a girl called Theresa but hated the name, so Terry it was) and Chris took a trip to Stonehenge to watch the sunset at Summer Solstice. They stayed at a little village called Goreshead.
Before the sunset at 21.27, the friends decided to take part in a quiz at a very weird pub called
A Stab in The Dark.
Weird because despite the sun outside, the pub was dark and quite dingy. The lights were on even though the sun was out..
When they arrived they were welcomed by the Manager and his two bar staff. The Manager was called Peter Jones, but preferred to be known as Pee Jean. He was rather funny looking as he said he was unable to get a haircut since lockdown , he fancied himself as a wordsmith and always took part in the pub quizzes. His two bar staff were Gill Shortbush (who kept bees) and Denny Riffraff (who kept cats….and was pretty good at doing the Timewarp).
The pub was quite full and on the stage was the Quizmaster called Miami-Jo. He was a real character surrounded by books and his quiz questions. Renowned for setting hard questions, as he was fed up of PeeJean, Gill Shortbush and Denny Riffraff winning every time.
Everyone gets drinks from the bar and with that, a bell rings and the quiz starts.
Luke mutters to his friends..'Look if you don't know the answer, stop putting my name down all the time, I feel stupid'. Terry, Marty and Chris laugh and say, "well you are stupid Lukey boy". Luke kicks Terry's leg under the table and says he will pay her back for that one day.
The quiz starts and the first two questions were easy. Everyone scribbled their answers down. Then the quiz got harder with a chemistry question being asked.
Suddenly there was a big bang and the lights went out
People reached for their phones to get some light but nothing worked.
5 minutes later the lights came on. The rest of the customers seemed frozen, they weren't moving.
An almighty scream was heard from Terry who pointed at Miami Jo who lay slumped over the table with his head caved in.
In front of Miami Jo was another table which held a hammer, an axe, a knife and a lead pipe...and then.......
*The Game Is On*
Terry screamed when she saw the blood and hid behind Luke, who said "We`re geniuses! We can solve who killed Miami Jo". At which point, the frozen customers woke up, dazed and confused, and asked "What`s happened?"
So, Marty went on to pick up Miami Jo's head when he discovered that...
