Storybuilders, Edition 5 (and Shawna's Shadow)

This week's start:

"Jorge, what do you think you're doing? That car is just..."

The Rules:

1. Each person can only add two sentences.
2. You may not post two consecutive entries (otherwise it wouldn't be wiki-ish), but you may come back and add on after someone else has added their entry.
3. Let's try to keep it PG.
4. You can designate new paragraphs and time pauses if you want to.
5. HAVE FUN!

Last edition...

Shawna's Shadow
by Shelly, Paradox, Laina, Kate, and I Heart Monster

Shawna rushed up to her best friends, Nicole, Leah, and Bess and practically shouted, "Guess what? Guess what? Guess WHAT?!? I..." But she stopped because he was there. What was he doing with her friends? This was definitely not good.

It is bad enough to be stalked by a shadow being without it trailing those she loved. She needed to do something, but how could she without revealing her secret? This was definitely not good. It is bad enough to be stalked by a shadow-being without it trailing those she loved. She needed to do something, but how could she without revealing her secret?

She had to make a move now to get rid of him without it seeming suspicious. She could eliminate him if she threw salt at him, but she had left her salt sachet on the table, stupidly. But then, she remembered the pool. Would he follow her into the chlorinated water? It was worth a try.

She headed over to the pool and coaxed the shadow to follow her. Her secret intact for now, she headed inside to prepare for the inevitable day when the shadows would return.
