MY DREAM TEAM

Inspired by @semioccasional // EDIT: this (well the initial part) dream was actually inspired by a real day dream I had this week! I'm loving the plot twists and turns! A tad different to the real day dream! ..this is fun x
  1. This week, my dream team are in France
    why?.. because we can!.. we're a dream team!
  2. We're in a field of spring flowers, by an old farm stay
    Very Frenchy, very cliche. Shush, you're interrupting my dream!
  3. There is a picnic rug, baskets of food (namely all the cheeses and baguette) and metal pails of ice and champagne
  4. There is a lot of laughter in the group. It's a cacophony of accents and languages.
  5. There are side eye glances, cheeky smiles and joie de vivre energy. The romance in the group is palpable.
  6. The air is warm and the breeze is cooling
  7. .... you may join the dream and complete the story (one line at a time)
    Who's played this game before? You each add a sentence to continue the story ...
  8. Jess ambles down the grassy slope toward the creek, enjoying the breeze and the sunshine, but suddenly she is lying face first in the grass and rolls over quickly to see what tripped her.

  9. "More champagne, everyone?" I say as I top off anyone holding a glass.
    Suggested by   @BWN_7
  10. While pouring @jennifergster more champagne, I see Jess trip and fall out of the corner of my eye 👀. Jenn starts to turn and look, but before she can see what tripped her she is startled by the cold champagne overflowing her glass and spilling on to her lap.
    "Hey dumbass pay attention!" she says, like the delicate flower she is....

  11. @BWN_7 drops the champagne bottle and runs over to Jess and they both stare open mouthed at the man in the grass with a hypodermic needle stuck in his throat.
    Suggested by   @jennifergster
  12. "OMG!!! It's Chris Kubica!!!" Jess shouts...
    Suggested by   @BWN_7
  13. Hearing Jess shout, @jennifergster @roche @jaidub @kate81 @k8zinker rush over

  14. "Holy (some new French profanity I've picked up) wait, is that a book in his hand? What book is it?", I say immediately seeking out more champagne.
    Also, thinking to myself, "I wonder if @Lisa_Fav had a part in this?"
    Suggested by   @kate81
  15. Well it's a good thing it's not my listapp book Machine Dreams, because I really need to go to the pharmacy and I also promised I'd send it to @dyaple77 weeks ago but I haven't gotten around to it yet!

  16. "Why would someone kill Chris K? In France? Do you think it's because of that note sticking out of the book? And a needle, that's not very French!"
    Suggested by   @kate81
  17. @nikkilounoel stumbles up as if from a dream with another bottle of champagne
    (thank goodness)
    Suggested by   @kate81
  18. and says "Well *this is!!" and opens a bottle of Red along with another bottle of Champagne and passes out glasses when @Lisa_Fav says "I brought mine!" But when she reaches for it, @ChrisK grabs her arm and we all scream and

  19. Chris screamed : " NON MAIS CA NE VA PAS LA TETE, MALHEUREUSE !"
    @kate81 being too drunk to realize that Chris talks French
    Suggested by   @Lisa_Fav
  20. He says "HO HO HO" in the creepiest way possible.
    He's a zombie now, guys. 😳
    Suggested by   @BWN_7
  21. "No he's not dumbass! You've just had too much champagne and your thinking of Secret Santa. Get it together" I say to @BWN_7
    Suggested by   @kate81
  22. Like the hero @ChrisK is, he pulls the needle from his throat, denies the seemingly drunken zombie accusation made by @BWN_7 and asks..
  23. "Maybe he was just drugged? But I don't speak French and I'm buzzed so handle it @Lisa_Fav"
    Suggested by   @kate81
  24. After the shock of seeing Chris animated and speaking (French, of all things), I ask the Cady (@chriscady and @stevecady) brothers to comfort and entertain the women while I bring in the crack investigation team....

  28. "@BWN_7 OMG, @roche doesn't make much sense ! What is he trying to tell us ? Something about warning us not to do private lists. And sending book"

  29. "This reminds me of the plot to one of my Nikki Heat novels" I say. Everyone gives me a weird look and I continue, "it's a dream, I can be Richard Castle, right? No? Ok fine, I'm me! Back to Nikki Heat, she's so dreamy😍" @kate81 punches me in the arm and says "you're ruining the dream!"
    "Ok fine, back to ChrisK," I say reluctantly, "obviously his killer has been stalking him since the secret Santa gift exchange, when he reached into grab @kate81 arm, I saw a Xmas card underneath him that said: To ChrisK From your murderer *insert evil laugh*." @kate81 punches me again and says "you suck at this!" "Fine!" I say, "I'll just be over here with the wine and cheese, call me when you need me."
    Suggested by   @HisDudeness
  30. "You know what that sounds like a way better plan! Wine and cheese, definitely! So, tell me more about this Nikki Heat..." I say to @HisDudeness
    Suggested by   @kate81
  31. Chris K coughs. "I've been working on a new French dialect while on my break from List App. Still ironing out the kinks." Chris K sprouts another head. "Dude, don't bogart the Gruyere." He gallops like a centaur toward the wine and cheese.

  32. Lions I can handle, but centaurs?! I'm fuckin outta here! *throws the cheese in the general direction of CentaurK*

  34. a neighboring town, a few kilometers away. It was just turning dark now and as she lay down on the picnic rug, Jess could see the faint glow of their iPhones. She looked up into the night sky and thought "dejavù".
