Story Telling



Consider this your creative writing assignment for the day. The above image is the starting point for a story that you guys need to make up. Whoever reads and acts on this prompt first gets to start the story. The only rules are to pick up where the previous commenter left off and to keep it clean. I'll be back to check your work later.

xoxo,
Rachel

Once upon a time there was a beautiful little girl named Ella. Ella was a dreamer, and all she dreamed of were shoes...

Diana said...

this was the big day. she had to choose the right pair. if this day went wrong, she will forever blame the shoes...

pinksuedeshoe said...

But, which one's should she choose? Flats, pumps, spats, shoes in every color. Finally, after hours of trying on two differnt shoes at atime, and standing on first one foot and then the other, squinting in the mirror, she decided. Pink. "Pink makes me brave," she said to herself.

miss money said...

She chose the shiny red flats & pretended they were her RUBY slippers. "i can't go wrong with these," she thought....

Laura Reaux said...

So with one pink shoe and one ruby slipper, she headed out the door.

Lovely Kasey said...

Suddenly upon walking out her door she runs into edward cullen (you're welcome rachel)

a cat of impossible colour said...

The shoes outshone Edward's sparkling skin, causing him to fall into a deep depression and collapse in a faint at Ella's feet.

hollysarah said...

Ella tapped her heels 3 times, and he quickly arose.
Before she could say anything, he vanished!
Deciding not to follow, she runs back inside to change her shoes. The sparkly ones were obviously too much....
"Maybe if I wore the teal ones......."

Liz V. said...

So she slid the teal ones on, and tied a matching ribbon in her hair. As she stood back and looked in the mirror, she felt positively about the color change, thinking aloud, "Teal is the perfect color for..."

Erin said...

I wouldn't scare off the men!" With that fleeting thought, she grabbed her teal shoes and without even thinking she stuffed them into her purse. But before she could get into her car, Edward stopped her and said...

katy said...

"A midnight picnic?" she wondered - romantic, of course, but hardly practical. A girl could muddy her pumps; and nothing shows dirt like teal...

DanielleQ said...

(sorry for the re-post - fixing grammar - put this above Katy's!) "Your astonishing loveliness rendered me unconscious. I must tell you that teal is the perfect colour for a midnight picnic. Put on your pumps and let's get out of here..."

Dawn said...

With her new shoes, her basket of good eats and a twilight love, she thought I must be dreaming.....Well, of course she was dreaming. Now, she must .....

Amber said...

...hurry out of bed! 10 o'clock! Why, she was late to work...oh my, which shoes to wear??

Karen M. Andersen said...

Without a moment to spare, Ella dressed and slipped on her favourite burgundy and salmon heels. "These are THE perfect match for my gorgeous new vintage dress and jewellry from Etsy", she mused to herself. She hoped that Elsie and Rachel would love them just as much as she did, and with that she set off for work, nervous but excited for her job interview with Red Velvet Art during lunch.

jenny said...

for it's every crafty girls dream to be a part of the Red Velvet Girls. The crafting, the laughing, the planning, the bonding. She just had to get this job.

Holly S said...

The morning flew by in the blink of the eye. Lunch. Lunch meant her interview with RVA-the time had come. Wearing her fav burgandy and salmon heels, she nervously ran down E. Commercial until she reached 200. Standing at the door...

karly said...

...she thought "this is it. Gather your courage, Ella, the time has come to shine!"

She put a big smile on her face and pushed open the door.

margot said...

but instead of being greeted by elsie, emma, rachel & holly, she was greeted by a giant, green...

Lehua said...

frog. Little did Ella know that the frog would someday be her prince charming..

Danielle said...

The only catch being that Ella had to break the dasterdly spell put on her Prince by not kissing him, but flicking him on the nose with her pinky finger....

Rebekah Williams said...

on one hand, a teal shoe in the other . . .

And as Ella did this, the frog turned in to the most beautiful Prince she had ever seen! The Prince was delighted to have the spell broken and he kissed Ella on her cheek. Ella suddenly felt faint and she fell(her teal shoe still in her hand) down to the floor of the RVA shop...

Elaine said...

hours later she woke up to find herself covered in a crocheted blanket and a tin squiggly pug puppy licking her face. She must have been dreaming again? What could be causing these insane daydreams? It seemed to her that she had narcolepsy of the cute dreaming world.

michelle said...

But dreaming she was not...the pug puppy was no other than Elsie's sweet pup Suki and as here eyes focused she could see Elsie, Rachel, Emma, and Holly standing in a circle above her. Are you ok one asked? Ella was at a lose for words, I...I...I...

margot said...

am really craving a grande soy pumpkin spice latte, extra whip and....

anne esquibel said...

..and some sushi. The girls helped her to her feet. With a short sigh she said "Are you ready" and fell to the floor with a smile on her face. Upon her awakening she appologized for the dreamy narcolepsy! A sweet smile came from Elsie's face as looked at Rachel and said, "Aw but we love*love narcolepsy of the dreaming kind!" As they are all were heading out the door Holly grabbed a pillow..

jari spry said...

filled with feathers, some cowboy boots and a the cuuutest headband everrrr, and they went out dancing...

Giraffes for sale said...

and some delicious home made apple cider... "mmm yum'' she said...

RachelDenbow said...

(ya'll are hilarious and I'm rather impressed how this has managed to stick to a story line.)

tanyawebster said...

but then.........just as she was walking out the door....she felt a cold hand touch hers...she looked up into the beautiful eyes of her one and only TRUE love Edward and she *gasped*...."you came back" she whispered.....Edward smiled his breath taking smile and and said "I never left my love.....I never left"......

Suddenly, a young strapping man paraded through the door. His tan skin gleamed in the light of the RVA cuteness and his muscular build causing all the girls to mutter and drool uncontrollably. "Hey. I'm Jacob. If he's here then it's time for me to steal you away & kiss you against your will and confuse you to no end.".....

RachelDenbow said...

(Ha! I've got to e-mail Elsie about this.)

Crissy said...

Ella's head spun with confusion after Jacob's arrival. "Whom shall I choose? Edward or Jacob? Why does everything have to be so difficult for me?" Ella thought to herself as she stood silently and sipped her grande pumkin spice latte while admiring her lovely, teal shoes...

allie said...

"I think I need to do some shopping to sort this out" she thought.

Just as she headed to her favorite store, she saw Bella running towards her!
Bella screamed...

tiffany. said...

"Why are you wearing my MAGICAL teal shoes!!!?" to which Ella replied...

Heather said...

"they looked way cuter on me!!"

michelle said...

as Bella looked up from the ground to gather in the words that Ella had just uttered, she gasped. "oh my!" it was as if she were looking in a mirror. you see, Bella and Ella have similar features. in fact, they are sisters who have never met...

Rubyellen said...

Until now...

Little did Ella know that her parents kept a secret from her for all these years. She had a twin sister named Bella and her real parents were Charlie and Renee, which were Bella's parents. The family she had known all her life adopted her because her real parents, Charlie and Renee, were having such trouble during their marriage that to spare having to split up two children, they gave away Ella to another loving family. They thought it was best that she never know the mess they were in.

Ella was so feeling overwhelmed from this new news that she was about to faint when...

Karen M. Andersen said...

...Ella felt Elsie, Rachel, Emma, and Holly tugging at her arm. She had suffered another narcoleptic episode! She awoke, realizing what had happened, and explained to the RVA girls that she suffered from Hyperexcitement-Induced Sleep Narcolepsy. The girls didn't mind one bit...they were dreamers themselves, they explained, and had a gorgeous vintage-filled fort set with all a crafty girl could want, just perfect for dreaming new dreams whenever she felt she must.

Ella instantly felt like she belonged and, with a fresh cup of grande soy pumpkin spice latte (with extra whip)) and some of Rachel's delicious baked apples by her side, she began her interview. She so wowed Elsie, Rachel, Emma, and Holly with her beautiful pink and burgundy heels and her astounding crafting prowess, that she started her fabulous new job at the RVA Factory as a Red Velvet Girl the very next morning...

...all thanks to some inspiration from her pink heels, ruby red flats, teal pumps, and especially her pink and burgundy beauties. And as she lay snuggling in bed with her real-life handsome "prince" Edward after her first day at RVA, Ella began to drift off to sleep.

"Aaaah, my gorgeous wardrobe full of the most amazing, pretty shoes in the whole wide world," Ella thought to herself..."what WOULD I do with out you?"

THE END!


(that was fun. Thanks for playing ya'll!)
