Passing the Sentence Game #2

Ok, as promised I am back with game #2. This time I don’t want any complaints of not being able to play. So, making it a bit longer.. that is 20 sentences for this story.

Once again here’s an open invitation. Can 20 different sentences – written by different bloggers across the globe – weave a good Horror story? Let us find out.
I’m going to write the first sentence and I invite you all to contribute the next sentence, in sequence. Yes, the sentence is passed onto the next blogger. Just leave your sentence as a comment, and I’ll keep updating this post to show you the flow of the story. Believe me it’s lots & lots of fun !

I want to see how long it takes to complete the task, so please don’t be reticent. Also, I am going to invite a guest judge (Surprise, surprise !!) – who is also a blogger – to critique our effort.

Ok now, first things first, as this petite Cuckoo always does … here are some rules of the game. Please read them carefully before playing.

Rules of the game :

1. No one blogger can participate more than once in a single game and no anonymous commenter please. I am dead scared of them ! Bhoooot...
2. The story has to finish in stipulated no. of sentences only (20 in this case). So choose your sentence carefully as to go with the flow.
3. If you write more than one sentence, I’ll take only the first one and the story will move from there.
4. Sentences can be as long or short as you wish them to be, use lots of comma & semi colons. Please refer to Game #1.

So, here goes my first sentence. Let us see who the next one is. Please remember we are trying to make a HORROR story.

She loved the mountains, unsullied greens and that chilly foggy weather.. that morning as she leisurely came out of her hotel room, rubbing her hands, mesmerized by the surroundings she stepped onto a road she wondered where that would lead her to, and then suddenly...

Now folks, the stage is all yours. Loosen the reins of your imagination and create the magic.

-----------------------

Ahaa !! The story has started moving within no time. Cuckoo khush hui.

1. She loved the mountains, unsullied greens and that chilly foggy weather.. that morning as she leisurely came out of her hotel room, rubbing her hands, mesmerized by the surroundings she stepped onto a road she wondered where that would lead her to, and then suddenly... from Cuckoo.

2. She heard a voice, stopped for a while and as she turned back, found a blurred figure from that foggy atmosphere gradually proceeding to her...wow, it was that lady.... from Sag_Nik.

3. Who was her friend and with whom she had lost touch; meeting old friends in new places is always refreshing and she expected this was the same but least did she know that wasn't the case. This was from Maverick.

Bravo Peter ! Nice twist. It actually fits well with my current song, as if someone is calling out that woman !
4. She felt something strange about it, but did not yet know that this "lady friend" actually was a disguised man. From Peter.

5. That lady proceeded with a wily smile as the rustling sound of leaves made her shiver, unaware of the disguised person she asked her to join her stroll. From Vaidya… a first timer here as far as I know.

Five sentences gone, 15 left. Now, what next ?

6. It was while strolling that she noticed that the shadows showed only one person... "this cannot be!!", she thought... with this creeping on in her mind, she walked on casting a nervous and scared glance at her companion. From Sam.

Now here comes the challenge for all of us to carry on further. What I could make out from a veryyy long sentence by Scanman is here…not verbatim exactly.

7. The word 'disguised' offers too literal an explanation for the fantastic and other-worldly transformations that have taken place in the body and psyche of the man after he was possessed by the spirit of the woman whose sudden disappearance is still shrouded in mystery after so many months and the case file remains open for the police who are increasingly inclined to classify it as an unsolved homicide.

A request to all of you. Please keep the sentences in flow, in the spirit of the game and simple.. in order to let the next person understand it, else you know what I am going to do. :)

Huh Beast ! You are always after poor petite Cuckoo. Nice continuation but lordess ?
8. Nothing about the case was simple, no wonder it couldn’t be solved; her parents narrated things that defied logic, prior to her disappearance, the woman had been possessed by a demon, the demon Cuckoola, lordess of all evil powers. From Beast

Ha Ha.. demons writing blogs ?? Very interesting.
9. People closely associated with the woman have seen her, late into the night, writing (blogging!!!) and tearing up parchments of paper in high quality blood; obviously, people speculated about the different sources of blood, leaving them all paralysed with fear, and then suddenly, one "fine" night when many people died, they saw her taking the road leading to a dense forest all alone... . From Praveen

10. And this was that very road but now it was morning.. SHE in the body of a HE wanted to be with Anita, this prettiest woman in the world who had earlier snatched her boyfriend and in a way was the reason for her death.. today she wanted to take revenge by being close to Anita.. she would definitely try to woo her and take her to the interiors of that forest... From Mayank, a very old fan of Cuckoo. Mayank, you still without a blog ?

Ok, so ten sentences are over and as I can see it now, it indeed is going to be a horror story.

11. So it was a lady demon hovering over the man, disguised as Anita's female friend Rozy and now trying to take Anita to the remotest place in the forest.. Anita in a pink flowery dress looked as awesome as always, oblivious of Rozy’s devilish plans, wanted to go back to the hotel since she was scared and found something amiss… she noticed Rozy’s hand on which there was a bracelet which resembled the one given to her by her boyfriend…how could Rozy have it ? This one is from Rohit.

The twelfth sentence came in from Lord Suicaine.
12. Her boyfriend John had given her the bracelet when they were on a romantic trip to Greece where within two days John was found murdered; on the same evening the bracelet was stolen from her bag under mysterious circumstances and now the same bracelet on Rozy’s hand.. Anita was now scared to death thinking of the unthinkable, her face became pale in spite of her pink dress.. is Rozy a ghost?

Oh la la, where are we heading to ? This indeed is a spine chilling thriller. Simpler and shorter sentences please. We still have 8 more to go and am quite sure that the story will finish in that.

Next sentence comes from Kalyan.
13. Or is it just Anita's doubting senses.. she has become suspecting of almost everyone since her boyfriend John's death. She was keeping a close look on the bracelet and trying to find the initials of their first names AJ which was embedded on it and her mind was preparing to run back if she found it out...

14. There it was, the initials AJ embedded beautifully together on the inner side of the bracelet and with a blood curdling scream, Anita fainted. From Deepti.

Ouch ! Never expected so much of bloody things out here on my blog. Ha Ha.. enjoying it immensely. Hmm.. some people just love the horrors of life. I must say, the fifteenth sentence from Ashutosh is a very good attempt.

15. She started dreaming almost immediately, wherein she heard Rozy mention about the 'Blood Bloggers Band', an association that collected blood and supplied to bloggers who wrote in high-quality blood, and then she saw Rozy and John engraved inside a heart on a tree trunk in the same forest, with the entire etching bleeding freshly; Rozy was trying to get her back to consciousness—penetrating even her subconscious—before she made her next move as she wanted Anita to see what was coming to her.

Five more to go. Let us see how it ends. As I said earlier the story is going to a spine chilling thriller ! Good Luck to all the five next bloggers for brining it to a thrilling end. Black King, be ready to wrap up the game again.

This one really had me puking. I don’t think I’ll ever ask people to make a horror story. :(
16. Her subconscious mind sent electric impulses through the nerves emitting pulses which would explode the nerves, the arteries and the veins, making her head grow larger in size, the veins and the nerves ripping apart from her skin spreading like roots of a tree and her head growing bigger than the tallest tree in the forest emanating shrieking sounds... From Prax.

And this was once again a nice turn. Thank you Adi for bringing me to senses again. And heyy I am NOT Anita. Ok ?
17. As Anita came to her senses, she saw a face bent over her, it was a smile... a benign, veiled smile on J's face...J! J? "J", she screamed and...

18. she screamed and... found no voice coming out of her which first surprised her.. and then forced her to think if it was all dream she was having.. but then her eyes fell upon something that froze her - it was her own dead body.. This came from a dear blogger SiD.

Ok, now only two sentences left. Let us see who those two brave ones are to bring the story to a respectable end. Come on guys, don’t be afraid. It is just a story we all are trying to weave.

19. .. lying next to John’s.. his left hand around her shoulder, both were smiling as if they were going for a romantic walk in that perfect romantic morning on that mysterious road and then suddenly... From Arun P.

Only last sentence left !! Who’s going to bring this story to a meaningful end ? Heyy guys, I’ll wait for another 12 hours and if no one is courageous enough to come forward then I’ll complete it. What do you say ??

Hurray !!! I asked for one and got two in bargain with a difference of 9 minutes only. Thank you both Iceman and Abhi. Nice try, guys. All the readers wanted a happy end and you both have tried to do the same.
However, I am taking Abhi’s sentence as the last one since it is more meaningful. It looks like he read the story carefully to bring in all the finer points to a conclusion. Also, Iceman’s version has multiple sentences.
So, here goes the last sentence.

20. she heard him calling her name...."Good Morning Honey", he said and there he was smiling at her, standing with a breakfast tray in his hand, specially made for her on a chilly Sunday morning,......this was just what she had always wanted....a romantic holiday to Greece....she took a look at the tray and there it was.....a lovely blue bracelet with the initials AJ embedded on it.

Now the story is going directly to the reviewer's desk. Let us see what he has to say.

Anonymous said...

who used to be her room mate in college times and had committed sucide after her boy friend had left her for a prettier girl...

Cuckoo said...

Anonymous,

I won't take your sentence till you declare your name. So hurry up, give me your name before next blogger chips in or else your effort goes down the drain.

Btw, your sentence is quite an interesting one ! Give me your name !!

maverick said...

hhhmmm im confused..... whether the anonymous's comment will be approved or not. ok so let me take advantage of the situation. I will give two sentences one continued frm the first comment and other frm the second, so the next blogger can take off watevr the case is.

cont frm 1st comment:

who was her friend and with whom she had lost touch; meeting old friends in new places is always refreshing and she expected this was the same but least did she knw that wasn't the case

cont frm 2nd comment:

and tht was the problem bcos she was tht prettier girl.

Anonymous said...

hey, story could have taken an interesting turn had you accepted the annonymous' comment.

maverick's second comment makes me feel so. !

Another annonymous

Cuckoo said...

Anonymous,
Oh yeah, I fully agree.
As I said.. I also felt so but I am so scared of ghosts (read anonymous), it would have become a ghost story by ghosts. ;)

Btw, are you sure you are "Another anonymous" ?

Still some time left.. Come out with you name and a scary ghosty sentence.

Peter said...

She felt something strange about it, but did not yet know that this "lady friend" actually was a disguised man.

Vaidya said...

That lady proceeded with a wily smile as the rustling sound of leaves made her shiver, Unaware of the disguise person she asked her to join her stroll. Incidently, she noticed her hand on which there was a bracelet which resembled the one given by her husband. Then that lady was about to say something but ...

maverick said...

ha ha.... sorry for interrupting. so the lady is a disguised man who committed suicide bcos her(him?) boyfriend left her(him?) for a prettier girl. so is d ghost gay :) ?

Cuckoo said...

Vaidya,
Good that you left your name but looks like you have not read the rules carefully. You have written more than one sentence.

So, I'll take only the first sentence. i.e. That lady proceeded with a wily smile as the rustling sound of leaves made her shiver, Unaware of the disguise person she asked her to join her stroll.

Next person can take on from here or if he/she is clever enough.. leave it. Not gonna say. :P

Cuckoo said...

Maverick,
Ha Ha.. you are very much interested in knowing about him/her.. eh ?

This is what happens when different people chip in. I like it very much. Maybe it'll turn into a comic one.

vaidya said...

hmmmmmm okay missed that :(

Cuckoo said...

Vaidya,
Yup ! Next time be careful.

Cheers !

Sam said...

It was while strolling that she noticed that the shadows showed only one person... "this cannot be!!", she thought... with creeping on in her mind, she walked on casting a nervous and scared glance at her companion.

Vijay said...

here is my contribution, it can fit in after Vaidya's or Sam's. It will still go with the flow....

"Though we have used 'disguised' twice, it should be understood that it offers too literal an explanation for the fantastic and other-worldy transformations that have taken place in the body and psyche of the man after he was possessed by the spirit of the woman whose sudden disappearance is still shrouded in mystery after so many months and the case file remains open for the police who are increasingly inclined to classify it as an unsolved homicide."

bEAST said...

Nothing about the case was simple, no wonder it couldnt be solved; her parents narrated things that defied logic, prior to her disappearance, the woman had been possessed by a demon, the demon Cuckoola, lordess of all evil powers.

Cuckoo said...

Black feline,
Welcome here and what a way to greet all of us !!

Sam,
Good going.

Scanman,
OMG, What a difficult & complicated sentence you chose to participate in the game. You have shooed away all of my readers. :(

Beast,
Here comes the bravest of them all ! But why do you always rope in poor Cuckoo ?

:((((((

darun hochhe;
it's really going 2b a HORROR story....but,gradually a COMPLICATED one as well!!! :(((((((

P.S.- i never heard abt such game , but like it in very first place..

Priyank said...

unfortunately I'm stuck in a Finance paper due tomorrow, if I let my right brain let loose, it will screw up my left... I'm just gonna wait for the story thing to complete, sounds fun...!

Mayank said...

And this was that very road but now it was morning.. SHE in the body of a HE wanted to be with Anita, this prettiest woman in the world who had earlier snatched her boyfriend and in a way was the reason for her death.. today she wanted to take revenge by being close to Anita.. she would definitely try to woo her and take her to the interiors of that forest.

Vijay said...

Thanks for including my rather long-winded sentence in the game Cuckoo. Since you said horror story and the story looked like it could turn to ghost or a stalker/murderer theme, I tried to connect the two genres as logically as moderately readable fiction would allow.
It was a nice break on a busy afternoon :)
I couldn't do a whole story but I'm ready for 'a sentence at a time' any time.

Cuckoo said...

Praveen,
What an imagination you have ! Demons into blogging ?? Ha Ha..

Sag_Nik,
Kee hochhe ?
It indeed is going to be a complicated one if not HORROR.

i never heard abt such game , but like it in very first place.. That’s the beauty of this game. One can never be sure what is going to be the next move. And I like that part very much.
I intend to play it quite often. Keep watching & keep playing. ;)

Priyank,
This time on public demand, I have made it of 20 sentences. I think tomorrow after your paper you would still have the chance to play.

Mayank,
Welcome after a long time. And what a surprise ! You have given an interesting turn to the story and a name to our main character. Thank you.

Vijay,
You are welcome. After seeing your that long and complicated sentence, many people had run away. :) I got messages like “What this Vijay has done to the story ?”. Ha Ha.. all part of the game. But now I think the story is very much on track.

I am glad that it could relax you a bit in a busy afternoon. As I love this game very much, I intend to play it quite often. Also depends on public demand. ;)

So, keep watching.

Cuckoo said...

To All,
Arrey, HE/SHE ke chakkar mein bahot complicated ho gaya yaar. Kuch simple karo.

Rohit said...

I have spent half an hour trying to understand the story and here’s my contribution from what I understood. I have tried to simplify it. :)

So it was a lady demon hovering over the man, disguised as Anita's female friend Rozy and now trying to take Anita to the remotest place in the forest.. Anita in a pink flowery dress looked as awesome as always, oblivious of Rozy’s devilish plans, wanted to go back to the hotel since she was scared and found something amiss… she noticed Rozy’s hand on which there was a bracelet which resembled the one given to her by her boyfriend…how could Rozy have it ?

sAg_NiK said...

#Cuckoo:u shud play this game often :) .. actually i've played lot of word-games, but such one-liner game's trully uniqie n thrilling!

#BEAST: hey, like ur input n ur sense of humour too!

Cuckoo said...

Rohit,
Welcome here and thanks for your contribution. Is it simple ? :(

Oh yeah, you have at least tried to give name to that multi personality, that solves some of our problems.

Thanks for coming, keep doing that.

Sag_Nik,
This game has become my favourite. Once it is popular here, I want to play for more # of sentences but then I need so many enthusiasts. Half the public is not interested in this. They come, read & go back. There are some new ones who have tried their hands but they're only handfuls. People like you should push some traffic here.

And Beast ? he is a dear cheery person. :)

Peter said...

Good luck to number 12 (needed) ... and the following!

Lord Suicaine said...

Her boyfriend John had given her the bracelet when they were on a romantic trip to Greece where within two days John was found murdered; on the same evening the bracelet was stolen from her bag under mysterious circumstances and now the same bracelet on Rozy’s hand.. Anita was now scared to death thinking of the unthinkable, her face became pale in spite of her pink dress.. is Rozy a ghost?

Cuckoo said...

Peter,
Yes, Good Luck to all !!

I think it is going to become a horrible story if not a Horror one. :(( People are writing so big sentences that at times it is difficult to understand though the last 2 persons have tried to simplify it by giving names to the characters.

Cuckoo said...

Lord S,
Thank you. Yours was a very good sentence.

The Black King said...

Aah... such ingenuity in the human mind, across all borders! I'd love to watch this one till the end. :)

Cuckoo said...

Black King,
Oh no !! I was banking on you heavily. If you remember you were the person to finish off the last game.

Please contribute or get someone else to do it else I don't think it'll reach the end. People are coming, reading, getting confused and leaving without adding anything. :((

Kalyan said...

Or is it just Anita's doubting senses. She has become suspecting of almost everyone since her boyfriend John's death. She was keeping a close look on the bracelet and trying to find the initials of their first names AJ which was embeded on it and her mind was preparing to run back if she found it out...

bEAST said...

@Sab_nik,
:) thanks mate!


@Cuckoo,
Thnks for thinkin of me as a dear cheery person :)
lordess? well it is not exactly a defined word but often used by writers as its meaning is obvious, try googling it :)

ashes said...

This story is coming up much better than the one in your Passing-the-sentence-game-1.

I hate to interrupt but the last sentence (Kalyan's) is not exactly one. They are two sentences and you perhaps missed it.

Even the first sentence (yours) is actually not one. Multiple dots are not exactly punctuation marks, and the two parts of your sentence are independent and separate sentences by themselves. Many of the readers' contributions are multiple sentences by that logic. I feel this is also a reason for the story getting so complicated.

Anyways, I think we can continue with this and see where do Anita and Rozy go...this is going to be a thiller!

deepti said...

There it was, the initials AJ embeded beautifully together on the inner side of the bracelet and with a blood cudling scream, Anita fainted.

deepti said...

hey sweets, it should be (blood curdling. nice little story game, i have p-layed it a lot of times with my frnds but a little differently by always using the inanimate objects as the charaters.
Hw r u?

ashes said...

Deepti I had also wanted Anita to faint, but due to something more than seeing AJ, and by the time I was done Anita was already fainted! So my tweaked contribution goes here:

She started dreaming almost immediately, wherein she heard Rozy mention about the 'Blood Bloggers Band', an association that collected blood and supplied to bloggers who wrote in high-quality blood, and then she saw Rozy and John engraved inside a heart on a tree trunk in the same forest, with the entire etching bleeding freshly; Rozy was trying to get her back to consciousness—penetrating even her subconscious—before she made her next move as she wanted Anita to see what was coming to her.

Princess Banter said...

Hahah I've to admit, my love, that you come up with the best modes of entertainment -- in blogland! I can just imagine you planning a party!

Cuckoo said...

Ashutosh,
I am glad that you came up with this not-so-major issue. Yeah, that was an error on my part for Kalyan’s sentences especially when I had not allowed Vaidya’s so interesting multiple ones. I need to be more careful in future.

Well, if you read the game #1 in full, I have picked it up from David Mcmahon’s blog where I used to play the game. David is a journalist, photographer and bestselling novelist and he himself has reviewed the first game on my blog. Nowhere has he mentioned about this discrepancy. More so, I have seen people using many sub sentences joined by comma, semi colons & multiple dots. I too, like you, had my doubts about it. But I guess it was all part of the game as long as you don’t use full stop, exclamation or question marks.
Yeah, people [including you :)] tend to take advantage of it, writing small paragraphs as sentences. ;) I would personally prefer to have shorter & simpler sentences but then the story has to evolve and end within 15/20 sentences which is quite difficult. Had it been 50 sentences, the result would have been different. I’ll try that once to ascertain my logic.

Thanks once again for your great input. Keep doing that. :)

Cuckoo said...

Deepti,
Glad to see you participating in the game. Also, a short & simple sentence. Thank you.

Ashutosh,

Ha Ha… people here are too fast. But your input has changed the scene. Bloggers writing with blood ?? I am dead scared now.
Also, I never knew people can dream while fainted !!

Keep coming.

Princess,
Thank you for the appreciations but where is your contribution?

ashes said...

Thanks for including my sentence. I was afraid you would eliminate it classifying it in the category of irrelevant, unnecessary, out-of-place numbers in Hindi movies. :)

I had not expected people to be so fast. I was writing at four in the night and had speculated over this possibility, but was afraid only of your global readers at that hour!

I knew you would wonder whether people dreamt when fainted, but when bloggers can write in blood, why can't people dream while fainted? [;)] (Try doing a google search on this...)

PS: Your first game did not have, save for your first sentence, any sentence with multiple dots.

ashes said...

I am already looking forward to your next game with 50 (short) sentences. You could also try allowing each blogger to participate twice, their two contributions separated by a certain number of other entries.

Merisi said...

No sentence, just a wave and a sweet hello, it was so nice reading your comments on my blog upon coming back from my trip.
Will be back, am still trying to catch up with work and household and blogging friends. :-)
Hug!

Cuckoo said...

Ashutosh,
I was afraid you would eliminate it classifying it in the category of irrelevant, unnecessary, out-of-place numbers..Yes, the BBB part was not required but then I just left it to let readers see where all our imaginations could go !

when bloggers can write in blood, why can't people dream while fainted? .. I am impressed by your imagination. It is just like my colourful dreams. But for me it wasn’t day-dreaming.

Your first game did not have, save for your first sentence, any sentence with multiple dots... Oh yes, it has. Sentence nos. 1, 4 & 14. And on David’s blog it was an integral part of all the games.

You could also try allowing each blogger to participate twice... Spot on ! You are on the same wavelength as me!
While playing the game, many times I have felt the urge to participate again in the game and hence the idea of a more-sentence-game where one can participate at least twice, came to my mind. But then all of you readers have to bring in more participants; many of my regular readers are wary of playing the game. A few handfuls are not enough. Let it become a bit more popular.

Merisi,
Welcome to your daily routine. How was your trip ?
But why no sentence here ? :((

Thanks for the sweet cuddly hug. :)

Peter said...

No additional pharase (I already have mine there), just to say how "horrified" I am; we seem to be a very sick blogging "family"! I wonder if there will be a "happy end"?

Prax said...

Her subconscious mind sent electric impulses through the nerves emitting pulses which would explode the nerves, the arteries and the veins, making her head grow larger in size, the viens and the nerves ripping apart from her skin spreading like roots of a tree and her head growing bigger than the tallest tree in the forest emenating shrieking sounds...

as anita came to her senses, she saw a face bent over her, it was a smile... a benign, veiled smile on J's face...J! J? "J", she screamed and...

SiD said...

continuing after adi's...

she screamed and.. found no voice coming out of her which first surprised her.. and then forced her to think if it was all dream she was having..but then her eyes fell upon something that froze her - it was her own dead body..
(well the last part "it was her own dead body" can be removed if needed ;) )

maverick said...

hhhmmmmmm i didnt want Anita to die :(, please the next one make her alive.

Arun P said...

Continuing from Sid's sentence

.. lying next to John’s.. both were smiling; his hands around her shoulder as if they were going for a romantic walk in that perfect romantic morning on that mysterious road and then suddenly...

Vaidya said...

hey enjoyed reading the twist and turns of the horror story and glad that the sentance which was not introduced from my part did appear in this story ;)
Well.. just waiting for the ending now..

Cuckoo said...

Peter,
Oh I too was horrified by the twists & turns the story has taken.

I am waiting for the last sentence. :((

Prax, Adi, SiD, Arun P,
Thank you all for your effort to move the story.

Vaidya,
Lol.. Looks like someone has read all the comments & took the advantage. ;)

Me too waiting for the same. :(( Wonder who would like to wrap it up.

At this speed, I don't want to play the game. Last game was over very fast.. perhaps people don't like horror things.

Iceman said...

the door bell rings....
Krrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr....
She could hear John yelling...
You fell asleep again? Now please open the door honey!

Abhi said...

she heard him calling her name...."Good Morning Honey", he said and there he was smiling at her, standing with a breakfast tray in his hand, specially made for her on a chilly Sunday morning,......this was just what she had always wanted....a romantic holiday to Greece....she took a look at the tray and there it was.....a lovely blue bracelet with the initials AJ embedded on it.

Anonymous said...

hey, this was the end i'd thought of. although not the breakfast tray, but waking up from a dream. but then, its not a horror story anymore. is it :)

- adi

Peter said...

I'm happy it all came to a happy end! It was just too horrible for a while! Thanks and bravo!

Abhi said...

Are you sure its a happy ending?? They are on a romantic trip to Greece and he has given her the bracelet.

Sentence #12 tells us more!!! :)
