Day 227 of 365 Days of Writing Prompts: Give your character a chance to be young again.
Shannon: “So what are you saying, it’s like some kind of summer camp for adults?” I shrugged a shoulder.
“Basically, but instead the summer is all about team bonding. That’s all you guys have to worry about, just have fun and get to know each other again. None of you are allowed to quit until you finish this program. It’s in your contracts,” our manager Kim, explained, revealing more information about our real destination.
“It’s not going to work,” Elise shook her head and stared out the window, “Why do we have to drag this out?”
I pressed my lips to the side for a second, not knowing myself if this could solve anything, but then we pulled up to a sign and I heard the shock in the other three before I felt it myself.
“Camp Borrelli,” Jade whispered under her breath. It was the same camp where we had first met as kids.
“So will you give it a chance,” Kim smirked, already knowing eveyone’s answer.
Erin: Waking up in tiny bed under the roof of parents is an unsettling feeling. Not just because when I went to bed I was thirty and woke up thirteen, but because it seems wrong. Waking up to my mom slaving over the stove to make me pancakes was wrong. Saturday morning cartoons instead of the news was wrong. No alarm was wrong. Being taken care of instead of taking care of everything was wrong.
Or was it? Maybe this magical week or, day, or whatever it was could be a blessing in disguise. I decided I would cherish it.
Give your character more youth.
