Story Idea - Mysterious Delivery

The day was not cloudy and the night was as dark as usual. Nothing out of the ordinary was happening. Of course, that is how it usually works out, isn’t it…the truck of new bamboo arrived at the zoo…yes, bamboo, and yes, the zoo. The exhibits needed some new foliage and the pandas needed some additional food. As the keepers open the truck and begin to inspect the cargo, they hear rustling toward the back of the truck. Slowly the make their way toward the sounds. As the reach they back, flashlight shining the way, a small furry creature creeps out from behind the tall stalks. He is black and white looking bear, who is wearing an illuminated, green collar and seems to be smiling at the crew.

Where did he come from? What is that the collar for? Why is he in this truck? Is he a bear? A panda? Did he really just smile at them? Choose the main member of the crew. Choose the path each have followed prior to this moment. Choose whether to share the back stories or reveal them slowly as the story progresses. Decide on the path. Decide on the why. Decide on the story, and write. Post it here, or share elsewhere, but write and enjoy…
