Bout of Books Read-a-Thon
Today’s challenge is hosted by Booking in Heels. The idea is to take the first full sentence on page 48 of whatever you’re currently reading and write a completely different story to it. Since I had a pretty good one, I thought I’d join in. Page 48 of my current read says:

“Unfortunately for that doctor I’d gone to the Serengeti with my parents as a child and witnessed such a pursuit.” – p.48 A Discovery of Witches, Deborah Harkness (trade paperback version)

So many possibilities! What shall we do next?

Unfortunately for that doctor I’d gone to the Serengeti with my parents as a child and witnessed such a pursuit. Several sweaty old men with pot-bellies chasing an elephant was not my idea of noble and never would be, no matter how much he argued. Furthermore, now that I knew where the ivory for his beautiful sculptures had come from, I was absolutely revolted.  To think this kindly old man I had looked up to all my life had such a terribly cruel hobby was devastating.

There! How’s that? Since I haven’t even gotten to page 48 yet, I have no clue how close or far I am from the original, but hey, it was fun :)
