The Challenge: Recall a time when you did something to get noticed (can be fictional) and use only 250 words.
A hand grabbed my shoulder, and I turned around. Standing there in front of me was the most beautiful girl I had ever seen. She had long blonde hair, pink lips, and her eyelashes batted at me flirtily.
She said, "My name's Katie."
The name spun around and around in my head many times before I finally replied. "I'm-I'm-I'm," I stuttered. I realized that Anthony is a stupid name. So I lowered my voice and said, "I'm Neo."
She smiled then whispered, "I'm playing a truth or dare game with my friends, they're the ones standing over there."
I nodded but didn't look away from her.
"I'm sorry if this creeps you out, but it's part of my dare," she said hesitantly. Suddenly, she lunged at me. Her lips touched mine, and a tingle went up my spine.
She withdrew and then ran.
I watched her run, and I decided she was mine. But then I realized, no girl like that-no girl at all- would go after...me. I decided to impress her by jumping over a car.
I looked over at the cars zooming by and formed a plan. I called her name to get her attention, and when her eyes found me, I dashed into the street. A car came full speed into me. I put out my hand to flip over it, but the car hit me too hard. I rolled over the front of the car then sprawled on the ground. Darkness overcame me.
I was dead.
