Wha-? What was that? Could it be… *drumroll*…
FIGMENT’S FIRST VIDEO PROMPT CONTEST!!
Yes, yes. Quiet down, please, screaming crowd.
Write a shorty story, no longer than 1000 words, that is inspired by the video above. The characters, details, and genre are up to you. Is this a love story or a murder mystery? Is she the hero or the villain? Your story can be set before, during, or after the events in the clip. Be creative with it! Your only limit is your imagination. And the word count.
And yes, we made this video. Apologies for the LOST ending.

Good luck, Figmenti!
