    Let's play a game! The objective is to create a story together. Each post is a continuation of the previous post.

    Rules
    • Only one sentence per post.
    • Only one post at a time. You can't post the continuation of your own post.
    • No post editing after a reply has been made. This will screw up the story.
    • Don't quote the previous post. The thread will be cleaner without quotes.
    • Post the story and nothing but the story. No side discussions.
    • No party pooping! All posts must be open to a sequel. Don't end the story.

    So without further ado, here's the opening line to our story...

    There once was a boy named Zeke who lived on the top of a great mountain.

    Zeke was a happy boy but often wondered what was beyond his mountains.

    One day while sitting on his front porch drinking a cup of hot tea, he was suddenly overcome with the strong urge to take a journey and explore the unknown.

    He spoke with his mom and dad about his thoughts and they decided that now that he was 18 years old it was time for him to follow his dreams.

    Overwhelmed with joy he packed up a few of his favorite things and prepared to strike out the following morning.

    That night Zeke slept a little restless because of the anxiety but finally did fall into a deep sleep and woke bright eyed and bushy tailed the next morning.

    He grabbed his backpack and was out the door before anyone could say goodbye.

    Inspired by his amazing, middle school English teacher, who taught him about the Hero's Journey, Zeke hoped that, perhaps, his journey would be life-changing and that he could save the world through his upcoming adventures.

    As he worked his way down the mountain, pondering over his teacher's lessons, he encountered a strange looking object.

    Bending over to get a better look at it he lost his balance and fell to the ground.

    He tumbled down the hill for quite a good way until he finally crashed into a tree.

    Dazed and confused, he looked up a wizened old man wearing a long robe, smoking a long, wooden pipe, and, oddly enough, with John Lennon glasses sitting atop his head.

    Zeke gathered his senses, what few he could muster, slowly stood up and looked into the old man's eyes.

    He could tell right away that this was no ordinary man.

    The old man twinkled one eye at Zeke, the other, with its milky cast clouding it, was non functional, and he looked down at the still reclining Zeke and started singing.

    Zeke was quite surprised by this odd behavior but found the man's singing to be strangely pleasant.

    Strangely because Zeke couldn't understand a single word of the song. But still, this was a new experience for Zeke and he had decided to absorb as much new knowledge as he could while on this journey. Yes, Zeke did manage to get back up again. The second time was easier.

    After a minute or so he asked the old man, "What is it you are singing?".

    "That, young man," replied the old man, "is a Celtic song my Master taught me when I was about your age."

    "Your master must have been a great singer. What else did he teach you?", came the boy's reply.
