Business before romance…so the answer to the Would-be-robbers is C: they locked the owner in a closet full of guns. You can read the who story here. The man stayed in the closet until he thought the men were gone, but when he stepped out, they were still there. Gunfire was exchanged and one of the robbers was shot and taken to the hospital where he was treated and arrested.
What type of wedding does your dream of? Sometimes an actual romance can spark the idea for a story. Read on for a fascinating wedding story.
Once upon a time there was a girl by the name of Tana, and she was in love with Jason. Now Jason worked on a crabbing boat just off the Aleutian Islands, and they didn’t see each other nearly as much as they’d like. But they had set a Christmas wedding. Jason was flying home, and it was going to be perfect.
But, as in all romantic stories, not everything went according to plan. Before they could make all the arrangements, Jason was called back to the boat. After he complained to his captain that he’d had to come back before they could tie the knot, the captain stroked his chin. Why not have the wedding on the boat?
After much thinking and talking back and forth, Tana agreed. I mean, who wouldn’t love getting married on a boat in Dutch Harbor, Alaska in March!
But again, there must be conflict.
The boat had to catch its quota before it could return to Dutch Harbor, so Tana would only have a ten-day notice. Finally the call came and Tana set out with two friends to fly to Alaska. Right in the middle of the worst ice storm in West Tennessee. They slipped and slid to Nashville to catch the plane, where they waited for over twenty hours to take off. That’s what every bride dreams of—puffy eyes from no sleep.
While in the airport a news crew arrived to do a story on the iced-in airport and discovered Tana’s story. They interviewed her, but she never saw the story because…FINALLY the plane was able to take off and eventually they flew into Dutch Harbor.
And then the wedding preparations began!
Finally everything was ready, even the groomsman and flower girl, and Tana made her way to her husband-to-be.
And then the vows.
After which was a reception with their friends.
And then the Captain gave up his cabin for the trip to Seattle for their honeymooon…
Oh! There’s one more thing about this wedding…except I can’t tell you what it is…not until sometime in July, so stay tuned!
Can you see how this could be used for a story?
