Okay so lets kill the word by word story and go with sentence by sentence instead. Same idea but you can contribute a bit more.

Rules:
1. The Story is ongoing.
2. Each poster may add one sentence.
3. At least two other posters must post before you can contribute again.
4. Try to make the story concurrent and make as much sense as possible.
5. The most important rule: Have fun!

** I think this will be more successful, thanks for playing.

*** The first poster besides me get to start it off. :)

It had started off as a very quiet night when Eric Korpela got a frantic call to report to U.C. Berkeley immediately.

All of these questions were interrupted as a flash of bright light came through the window that had previously displayed the hanging pants.

Good to know he found them, as the way he zips along, license and registration are required.

As Eric is already doing 80+ from CV to Berkeley, his mind is in knots, wondering about the emergency.

In the top dower of the Dean’s desk, Valblick the first visitor to earth from its home world in the Swan constellation also known as Cygnus, was thinking; they can’t be as backward as they look since they have beer here.
