Fandango’s Story Starter #58

It’s time for my weekly Story Starter prompt. Here’s how it works. Every Tuesday morning (my time), I’m going to give you an incomplete “teaser” sentence and your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to build a story (prose or poetry) around that partial sentence. It doesn’t have to be the first sentence in your story, and you don’t even have to use it in your post at all if you don’t want to. The purpose of the teaser is simply to spark your imagination and to get your storytelling juices flowing.

This week’s Story Starter teaser is:

I woke from a sound sleep up with a start, turned on my nightstand light, and…

If you care to write and post a story built from this teaser, be sure to link back to this post and to tag your post with #FSS. I would also encourage you to read and enjoy what your fellow bloggers do with their stories.

And most of all, have fun.

    I woke from a sound sleep up with a start, turned on my nightstand light, and…
    saw people in dark uniforms walking, quietly, through my home and taking things.
    When they noticed I was awake, I found that two were in my bedroom; the two then
    pointed guns at my head, speaking to me as if I had a gun plus a plot to shoot people.
