Good night, good luck, and is that the patter of chicken feet that I hear?

Let's find out. For the very first starter sentence poll, Randal came up with, "She knew time was running out, fast, but opening that door was Pandora's Box all over again."
It did not win the poll that week, but I felt that this prose was more than worthy enough to revive, and I know that you will agree, too. There was also the added challenge that no one could write in the same genre as the one that they used on their previous session. Without further ado, let's see the results-
Gabby takes us to the inner trappings of the mind.
Nicole goes south of The Border and far into the past.

So what do you get? You get an original Randal sentence, "She knew time was running out, fast, but opening that door was Pandora's Box all over again."
The other trick is you can't write in the same genre as the one that you used the last time. If you have written a story here before, whether it was the last session or the first session, you can't repeat that genre this week. If you wrote a sci-fi piece, please don't write another one this week. A western before? Not this week.
All you have to do is build a story around that. Sounds simple enough, but if you've done this before, you know better. You know the deal, if you are in, please say so. Have it done by Tuesday @9 AM Pacific, August 24th, all right?
