It's Love-a-Thon time! If you want to know more about this event, put together by the lovely Alexa and Katelyn, check it out here. It's the second mini challenge which is a bookish Mad Lib! The underlined, bolded words are the ones I came up with - which I attempted to do without knowing where they'd fit in.
One day, I was CARTWHEELING with CHAOL. Out of the blue, a GRAPEFRUIT came out of nowhere! It was so CLUMSY, VOLUPTUOUS and JUICY. At first, we were afraid, we were petrified, but we SCATTERED. We hopped on SCOOTERS to make our getaway.
As we escaped, we turned up the radio because MMMBOP came on and made me KICK. Everything was extremely smooth sailing until a LION appeared in the middle of the road. We swerved to avoid it, but while CHAOL stayed on THE SCOOTER, I got thrown onto my side in the woods.
I couldn't get up, and felt COLORFUL as I lay there staring up at the trees. What was I going to do? I heard a WHOOSH among the leaves, and felt RAGE. Surely, this was going to be my end. As my eyes fluttered shut, the last thing I saw was a head of PERIWINKLE hair and CERULEAN eyes.
When I woke up again, I was on a LOUNGE CHAIR. My body hurt a whole lot less, and I could sit up. There was a FROG and A CLOCK in the room, along with BROWNIES and GRAPEFRUIT JUICE. The door suddenly opened to reveal JOHN AFTER, a concerned look on his face. I blushed and averted my gaze, but he WIGGLED and said, "Don't be shy. It's okay."
He came over to sit by me, and we started talking after I told him my name. We chatted about CURLING, STAMP COLLECTING and FAN FICTION and realized we had a ton in common! I thought he was CRAZY and couldn't help feeling a little swoony.
Just as he reached out for my hand, the door crashed open and in came ETIENNE ST. CLAIR. "Don't let him charm you away, my love!" He yelled, running at JOHN AFTER. They each had SPATULAS in their hands and began to fight. "Stop!", I yelled, feeling so GIDDY. They didn't listen to me. Before I could intervene, JOHN AFTER fell to the floor and disappeared in a cloud of smoke.
"What was that?" I asked, staring at the empty space. ETIENNE ST. CLAIR dropped his weapon, and came over to me. "Magic, but you are safe now, MUFFIN." He hugged me close, and I suddenly knew that this was the real deal and not just a dream.
Just as CHASING CARS started playing in my head, I woke up. I cursed my COOL luck. Why had it only been just a dream?
