Finish the story in your own creative way.
10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2………..well, that’s odd. Hey Tom, what is up with the countdown timer? It just stopped at 2. Unknowingly, this little glitch in the timer would be the first of many suspicious problems that will occur in the launch of the world famous hot air balloon race over the tulip fields of Belgium. The event is it’s 100th year anniversary of the world cup of balloon racing and millions of people from all over the world have shown up to take part of this momentous celebration. People are scattered all over the country side awaiting the stylish and most impressive balloons to start roaring through the sky. And to all you folks, these are no ordinary balloons. These are aerodynamic machines that are so light and can maneuver through rush hour traffic in New York City like it was a walk in the park…….with ease. Millions are spent in research and development, and the finest pilots and crew are chosen from hundreds of thousands or qualified candidates. Only the best can represent their country.
Security is tight and things to the unknown eye seem just fine. No one suspects anything and why should they. The event brings joy to all across the world and in our present year 2065, cheating and foul play are non existent. Society has come together and countries are united worldwide.
Tom…..let’s try the countdown again. 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3……what in the world. Now it seems like we are going deeper in the hole. Ok. now this has to work. Maybe all it needed was a little tap there and a little tap here. One more time Tom. 10,9,8,7,6,5,4……..oh crap. Tom and Nicole meet and start to think of some possible scenarios of why the timer is not working properly, but unknowing to the both of them, the more attempts they try to fix it, the faster the timer will reach 10, and when that happens, only the unthinkable happens.
Okay guys and gals. Have a crack at this one. Hope you enjoy and I look forward to reading your endings.
