Collaboration Challenge Pt. 4 !!!!

So far I've gotten almost 200 responses to the Requiem ARC giveaway! I'm so excited to sit down and read all of those stories, but in the meantime I'm really excited to announce the next part of the collaboration writing challenge! Once again, we had a lot of great entries, so remember to keep submitting, even if yours hasn't yet been selected. There's a lot of this story yet to come and we need as many voices as possible. This week's story is extra long. The first part was written by, Heather Kirby, and the second part was written by my friend and assistant Natasha! Next week, along with you guys, I'll jump in with a second of my own!

I can't wait for you guys to let me know what happens next! Remember, send the next 200 words of the story tolaurenoliverbooks@gmail.com by  AUGUST 8TH. That's ONE WEEK guys! And have fun with it!

First part of the story here!

Molly was shaking now. She was lying in a freezing liquid. Her eyes had been closed tightly in fear. Now, opening them, she got onto her hands and knee’s, limbs shivering as she looked up through the soaking wet hair that had fallen into her face.

Noticing her surroundings, her mouth formed a small O. She was lying in a crystal blue stream. It was very shallow. She seemed to be in a meadow of a forest. The trees were like spindly shadows reaching up and up to the dark sky, black as night. Yet there was a glowing sun, it seemed. Molly noticed that even though she was in an utterly different place, the emerald train was still there, as were the acrobats who looked like shadows themselves, like the trees--standing quietly and watching her.

The one-eyed man stood watching her too. When Molly finally noticed him, he reached out his hand toward her.

May I have that back, please?” he asked.

Molly realized that she was still holding onto his walnut eye. She scrambled to her feet and splashed through the stream until she was standing right next to him. She hesitated, realizing again how much bigger he was then her, but decided it was only polite to return the walnut to him. The second it touched his hand it disappeared, only to re-appear in his eeye socket. Magic, Molly thought to herself. If her transportation to another world hadn't convinced her, then that finalized it. This was a man of magic.

Molly had always wanted to see magic, but she was so overwhelmed by her new circumstances that she didn't know how to say what she really wanted to which was something like, “please-take-me-on-adventures-and-teach-me-magic-and-show-me-everything!” Luckily, she didn't have to figure out how to articulate this sentiment in a sane way because the the walnut-eyed man seemed to snap into action.

Right then!” He bellowed, “I'm sure you know why you're here so we'll just get right to it then. The train stops here, so we'll be going by foot and cart. We should get through the woods tomorrow evening if we hurry.”

Excuse me, sir,” Molly spoke up, “but I don't know why I'm here.”

Interesting,” the man said, “but it's not my job to tell you. My job is to take you through the woods. We have a show on the other side.” He looked up and addressed his acrobats, “come on you lazies! The carts aren't going to pack themselves!”

So I've been just quietly lurking, watching this amazing story evolve, and now I can no longer resist the temptation--I'm going to submit something! *cowers* But seriously. This? Amazing. Lauren, you freaking rock for doing this. And all the contributors... well, your creativity is unmatched and I'm so excited to read more! (seriously, I can envision this sitting on shelves in bookstores.)

Please pick me. I have downloaded all the books off of booksahre, read late in to the night, read all day and have gotten vurtually no sleep since i started reading. My life has been ruled by the Delirium books. In fact, when I was done with Pandemonium, I threw a fit because i couldn't believe I was done reading. I screamed, cursed, threw myself across myroom, and researched when the next book was coming out right away. So, please, I need this book. I love your work and I can't get enough of the books. So, please sne dit to me.

Luxury lanvin bags

already out of date, we will change this outdated season. In fact, do

not worry, a lot of bags thrown away, or fashion, and even the stars

are reluctant to throw out. The most obvious example: lanvin bag, the most

popular brand lanvin

handbag

This is a great idea for a challenge. Collaborative stories are great because everyone interprets the opening differently and has a separate ending in mind. This really creates an almost infinite amount of different writing for each step. It would be fascinating to see where this goes next. It seems like the next part is going to incorporate some new conflict.
