Does anyone want a story idea? I found this in an old Drive folder; I don't plan on using it, but please let me know if you do something with it!
"Thursday June 23 2011 Prompt (@writerspry)"
Chris coughed as he slouched against the cold brick wall. He touched his side, and winced at the sharp pain that emanated from the bloody hole now in his side. With his last ounce of strength, he slid his pistol from its holster and held it as steady as he could in front of him. His target - the man who had already shot Chris - simply laughed as Chris pulled the trigger.
The shot hit home, and the other man - Robert - collapsed immediately. Chris smiled, and drifted off into nothingness.
Some notes I wrote below the prose:
5 Ways to continue the story...
1) Time Travel!
Chris somehow sends a message to the past to warn himself about getting shot.
Chris is actually one of a series of several clones.
3) There’s a Hero-in-waiting
Chris had a protogé waiting to take the mantle of whatever work it is he does.
