Story starters

#1 Andy Griffiths

'Are you joking?' I said.

'No,' said Mandy.

Behind us I could hear the lions roaring.

They were restless. I could tell it was close to feeding time.

'But a stunt like that could get me killed!'

'Yeah, I know,' she said. 'But I thought you said you loved me.'

#2 Glenda Millard

Samba was sixteen, scared of storms, gentle as a lamb and could melt your heart with a look. We buried the stranger to protect her. We found him outside our door on Friday the thirteenth. Samba straddled him, teeth bared, hackles raised with blood all over her beautiful white coat.

#3 Simmone Howell

Dad had gambler's hands and itchy feet. The day I turned twelve he said, "Big Boy, take care of your mother." He pressed a key into my palm and disappeared himself. The key was to Dulcie, our mint green VW kombi van. Dad said she was magic. I was about to find out why.
