30-Day Writing Challenge by Ingramspark – Day 9 (The missing day)

You see a movie trailer, and you’re immediately hooked.

We’ve all been there. The anticipation grows as you wait for it to release. You buy your ticket, grab some popcorn, and slide into your seat at the theater—eagerly awaiting what you’re sure will be your next favorite movie.

Halfway through, you begin to have your doubts.

The movie seemed to have the perfect formula—a strong cast, interesting plot, award-winning director—and yet, it seems to have missed the mark.

Perhaps there was room for two on that raft?

Now’s your chance…why not rewrite it?

You don’t have to start from scratch. Find where the story began to drop off for you, and ask yourself—what would have made this more compelling?

Give yourself 30 minutes. Write.

Rather than re-write the ending of a movie, I decided to use this challenge to include an addition to the last chapter to the first sequel of Who We Were. Please note that I only played around with the addition, and it is not something to be taken seriously. I am happy with how I’ve closed the first sequel. Before, I had readers reaching out to me asking me and commenting about the ending. Is that it? This cannot be the ending. Is there going to be more? Of course there is going to be more with several titles to follow.

The Alternative Ending

*(Possible spoilers alert)

Jace put the phone down and looked at the invitation in his other hand. He was happy for Melodi, and he couldn’t wait to see her. He then put the invitation on the table in front of him and sat back on the couch. He closed his eyes, and before he knew it, he had drifted off to sleep. He didn’t know how long he was asleep for when he thought he heard a familiar voice calling out to him from close by, and it sounded urgent.

“Dr Lee! Dr Lee!”

Jace immediately knew who it was. Ashton.

“Dr Lee! Dr Lee!”

Jace tried to call back out, but he couldn’t. He didn’t know how.

“Dr Lee, I need help. Please find me. Dr Lee!”

And then Jace woke up. He opened his eyes and looked around. There was no more voice. It had all been a dream. But was it? There was something hauntingly disturbing about Ashton’s voice calling out to him. It had felt so real.
