Book Blogger Love-a-thon continues and this time with a mini challenge: mad libs! This was a fun challenge.
One day, I was hiking with Shane. Out of the blue, a UFO came out of nowhere! It was so huge, golden and smelly. At first, we were afraid, we were petrified, but we ran. We hopped on the jeep to make our getaway.
As we escaped, we turned up the radio because Dancing Queen came on and made me relax. Everything was extremely smooth sailing until a tiger appeared in the middle of the road. We swerved to avoid it, but while Shane stayed on the jeep, I got thrown onto my side in the woods.
I couldn’t get up, and felt silly as I lay there staring up at the trees. What was I going to do? I heard a howl among the leaves, and felt scared. Surely, this was going to be my end. As my eyes fluttered shut, the last thing I saw was a head of black hair and blue eyes.
When I woke up again, I was on a bed. My body hurt a whole lot less, and I could sit up. There was a bookcase and tv in the room, along with pizza and champagne. The door suddenly opened to reveal Gabriel, a concerned look on his face. I blushed and averted my gaze, but he grinned and said, “Don’t be shy. It’s okay.”
He came over to sit by me, and we started talking after I told him my name. We chatted about books,hockey and travel and realized we had a ton in common! I thought he was gorgeous and couldn’t help feeling a little swoony.
Just as he reached out for my hand, the door crashed open and in came Brisbane. “Don’t let him charm you away, my love!” He yelled, running at Gabriel. They each had teapots in their hands and began to fight. “Stop!”, I yelled, feeling so helpless. They didn’t listen to me. Before I could intervene, Gabriel fell to the floor and disappeared in a cloud of smoke.
“What was that?” I asked, staring at the empty space. Brisbane dropped his weapon, and came over to me. “Magic, but you are safe now, buttercup.” He hugged me close, and I suddenly knew that this was the real deal and not just a dream.
Just as Dreamlover started playing in my head, I woke up. I cursed my wonderful luck. Why had it only been just a dream?
