You are now having severe doubt's if there was any dead bodies. Walking quickly towards the guests gathered outside ,you glance around at their faces. The salt from the building sweat tastes bitter as you lick you lips.

The faces stare back at you blankly as you push your way into the house, knocking over a drink tray held by a butler. Quickly you stride toward the hall and stop to look at the doors. You are uncertain and disoriented as to which door leads where.

"Is there something I can help you with?" The maid says upon her approach.

"The library," you demand. "Where is the library?" She directs you to the door on your left and you quickly part from her sight. Throwing open the doors, you rush over to the chair where you had seen Rebecca.

Falling to your knees, you embrace the empty chair and weep uncontrollably. Your heart races, as does your mind. Confusion, uncertainty, maddness fills your head with voices of the party guests. "What is going on? Is this happening to others?" You think to yourself. You feel the need to get out of this horrid place.

"Who cares about the money? It isn't going to be mine. Everyone here hates me.....they are all in on this........"

"Excuse me," calls the voice of a woman in the doorway, causing you to jump in fright and fall backwards into a bookcase.

"Oh, are you alright?" She askes as she runs over to help you.

"Get away! You're d...d...dead...I saw you...my handker....." You fumble in your pocket looking for the handkerchief that you removed from around her neck....But it's gone.

"I think you need a doctor. As you can see, I am perfectly fine." She reaches out to lend you a hand, but you fall away from her touch and pull yourself up.

"I don't think we've met. My name is Rebecca. Can I get you a doctor? There has to be one here somewhere." She asks.

"No...no..I'm fine...just fine." You insist, but are not so sure your statement is true. "You don't know me?"

"No. The first time I laid eyes on you was at the dinner table. Are you sure you're alright. I can get you some water or something."

"I'm fine! Other than the fact that I'm loosing my mind. I could swear that I saw..." You stop in mid sentence as you look at her beautiful blue eyes.

"You saw what? What is it?" She insists that you tell her.

"I was just so stunned at your beauty that I fell over." You try your best to break a smile, as you take her hand. "Would you like to go have a drink?'

"Yes, then maybe you can tell me what is really going on. Not that I mind your charm, but it could use some work." You escort Rebecca out into the hall and pass the bathroom. You force yourself not to look into the open door in fear that you will see the hand of the other body that you were certain that you saw.

:( This story just isn't fun!


So you whip out a purple fun noodle and start beating the guests over the head. Chasing Rebecca outside, you stumble into a waiter, sending him flying into a large cart full of pies. The host tries to make a run for it, but you can't let him get away. You chase him outside, around the garden, and he trips over a potted plant and lands face first in a pile of..............

.......squiggly red jello. He jumps up to confront you, but is quickly pelted with mini marshmellows from party-goers.

"Hahahaha!" You laugh as you remove your tux. "Come on people! Let's get a move one. The last one in the pool is a rotten egg!" You scream while peeling off the rest of your clothing and run towards the direction of the pool. As you are about to do your famous cannonball, you notice something in the pool. It's..............

You took the words right out of my mouth. Looks like it needs to be deleted.

No. Not deleted. Good writing should never, ever be deleted. Keep it around, just in case.

Just in case....what? In case it catches fire and burns the entire forum down. Only a couple people joined in, so it must have really sucked. I am no good at writing this kind of stuff....or much anything else. I think I just get lucky sometimes.

Naw, don't say that. You're a good writer. I enjoyed participating in this thread when I did, but writers block and other preoccupations have been getting in the way of my posting on here at all lately. Same reason why I haven't posted to my own writing challenge thread in ages.

This thread doesn't need deleting, it's very good. You're a brilliant writer Mystery, a lot better than me for a start. I say that we should delete all posts after the "You are now having severe doubt's if there was any dead bodies. Walking quickly towards the guests gathered outside ,you glance around at their faces. The salt from the building sweat tastes bitter as you lick you lips." post. It would be a good thing to ponder over and could be used as the basis for a good adventure even.
"Bye!"

"Seeya!"

"Thanks for the mint."
