Writing Challenge: Day 14 – randomly find someone in your yearbook. Create a story about their life today.

Cody walked through the mall, looking back and forth at all the different people in the halls.  There seemed to be too many people just milling about.  He wandered what was going on, but he also had a secret, and he thought maybe this was it.  He made his way towards the center of the mall, holding his ipod and the bag with the speakers, finally making it to the clock. His friend was in the corner, readying the camera on the tripod, as people glanced at him curiously.

Finally Cody set up the ipod, hooking it to the speakers, and getting ready to press play on the song.  He waited for the clock to strike noon.  Finally.

LMFAO’s Party Rock exploded out of his speakers and amps.  He slide to the middle of the dance floor, and started dancing as if his life depended on it. Many others begin to join him, and slowly they took over the whole center of the mall. He had always wanted to have a flash mob.  He finally decided that he would make it happen. After all, who knew what life would hold in the future. It was time to cross what he could off his bucket list. For him and his friend.

The adrenaline was amazing. As he glided across the floor, he felt as if he never had before. And the whole thing was going to be on film. People surrounded them, taking pictures and filming it with their cell phones.  He felt alive for the first time in years.  This was perfect.

As the end of the song neared, he gave it his all.  Dancing as if he would never dance again.  As the last note rang, he suddenly felt light headed. His fellow dancers drifted off, as the cops came too late to break it up, but Cody couldn’t move. The world had slowed to a standstill, and as his friend yelled his name, he saw the skylight get brighter and brighter… and then nothing.
