Writing workshop: First meeting


Hey everyone…This post should have been written months ago…I’m so sorry it’s uploaded just now!

To put an end to our theme “first meeting and love at first sight”, we wrote something in groups of two. We had to imagine characters meeting for the first time. This story is actually greatly inspired by a fiction from Tina, (Check out her blog here!) my teammate for this task, called “Blood Diamond“. We kept the same storyline but we changed a few details here and there… So here it is, enjoy! ; )

Eyline Olsen is a sixteen year old orphan. One day, her godmother disappears leaving behind a name : “Lowland” and a phone number. Eyline ends up in some huge manor in London where she meets Jewel, Michaël and Eleanor who work as employees there. However, she still hasn’t met any of the Lowland’s family members.

Another rainy day in London… Eyline sighted. Everything looked the same: the sky was grey and only the sound of raindrops falling on the ground disturbed the deep and heavy silence in the manor. How many days would she have to stay here? She felt as if her life was passing by, as if time was slowly fading away… Boring. The appropriate word was “Boring”. She turned away from the window and wandered around. She climbed to the second floor and was heading to her room when something caught her eye: a door, an open door. She was about to get in when she felt a presence behind her. Carefully, she turned around, just in time to see what looked like a shadow. She must have dreamt, there are no strangers here! Shaking away the thoughts in her head, she took a timid step into the library . The first thing she noticed in this dark and old room was two shining emeralds. She then realized it was someone’s eyes, incredible deep green eyes. A strange thought came across her mind: Even thought she had never seen such a particular eye color before, it looked very familiar. Suddenly, she was assaulted by memories and sounds. Bright colors were flashing through her mind, voices of the past were mixing up in her brain. She started to feel unwell, it wasn’t normal, these memories did not belong to her…This past was not hers. But, the strangest thing of all is that she felt connected to him, in a way she had never been with anyone before. They had already met, but not there, not now. He then stood out of the darkness and Eyline’s heart stopped beating at once. Not only was he stunning but he was one of those people who had this powerful and terrifying aura. Michaël’s words popped out into her mind: “He’s what they would call handsome but his heart is as hard as a stone and he’s a real jerk. Don’t fall for him!” Eyline could see his long blond hair tied up in his back. He was rather tall and his skin was way paler than hers. He was a complete mystery, dark and compelling at the same time.

-“It would be best if you left” he said.

-…What? I…I don’t understand… Eyline replied

-Get out of here! You have no right to be here and you are certainly not welcome either! Get out of here or I’m afraid you’ll regret it…”

Eyline ran away. What else could she have done?

That’s it for today! Hope you liked it, don’t forget to leave a comment! ; )
