Writing prompt: I start, you finish

Being at home can be a bit maddening during the COVID-19 era. So here's a bit of fun to break up your day. I wrote the beginning of the story, now you run with it.

Here's the rules:


1) Finished story must be between 500 and 750 words

2) No porn

3) No misogyny

4) Violence is acceptable ONLY if it's relevant to the plot

5) Post your story in the comments below!


Here's how the story starts:


“Hey Thin Mint! Git fucked!” The phlegmy voice spat itself across the parking lot and was followed by a rock about the size of a golf ball. It hit Thin Mint on the shoulder and bounced backward, tumbling to the pavement with a series of small clicks. She didn’t stop to see who had thrown it but she knew the voice well enough. Thin Mint just kept on walking toward her car and slid inside without pause as the doors didn’t lock so there was no reason to.

Another small rock hit her windshield and tumbled off the far end into the grass. Thin Mint started the car and pulled away from the curb fast. In a perfect world her tires would have squealed and the engine would have roared but an 87 Sentra didn’t do either of those things.
