Day 253 of 365 Days of Writing Prompts: Give your character a dare.
Erin: “I dare you to quit your job”
“Are you insane?”
“You have to. You chose dare.”
“Have you ever considered that you’re the one being evil to yourself?”
Shannon: “I dare you to sneak into that abandoned house on 6th Street and take something from it,” Avery suggested, very proud of her idea.
“The haunted house?” I questioned. “You want me to steal from dead people?” I reminded her of what she was asking.
My words didn’t faze her, “I know,” she nodded, “Do you prefer the punishment?” She was threatening a week of becoming the high school joke with a collection of outfits that were guaranteed to also piss off the teachers. It was a long-term hassle instead of a short-term terror.
“Don’t make her do it. Pick something else,” Lily was also concerned.
“No, she has to decide,” Avery didn’t back down. “What’s it going to be?”
I had to determine if I could live with myself, and I figured they couldn’t miss anything that I took, not that it would be anything important. “Fine. I’ll do it.”
Truth or dare?
