It crossed his mind that the whole thing was a charade to toy with him.

So he decided to toy back. Should he get down on bended knee and serenade his date?
Should he clear the table and dance on it? Or was there another option?

Biggles's date was gazing into his eyes and holding one of his hands between her own as she held his ankles between her stockinged feet, sliding one foot languorously up and down his calf.

Biggles appeared surprisingly unconcerned by this public display of affection, thought Wilks.

He looked at Bertie and his date. Bertie was quiet, attentive and.......was that a very small ring box in his hands? He spun round to Ginger. This was more like it. Ginger was laughing and Wilks caught sound of a string of Americanisms as he regaled his date with details of pistons, throttles, flaps and..great Scott, the young lady appeared to be riveted by this conversation. She was gazing into his eyes.

Algy and his date had quickly reached an understanding.
Somewhere in the darkest corner of the aero club sat a member of mi5 charged with the security of looking after the minor members of the royal family. He was astounded to see his difficult charge getting on so well with a man. Were they in fact laughing together?

He'd heard that Lacey was irresistible to women but really hadn't believed it. I mean the man has freckles, he thought.

Edna claimed Wilks's attention by asking him to point out his friends. He did so, with a not so complimentary running commentary. He had absolutely no intention of introducing Edna to Algy. Or Biggles or..any of them. Tonight, charisma seemed to hang over them like a fog.

Suddenly the room spun alarmingly. Wilks clutched at his table, but there was a clattering smash as his gin and tonic crashed to the floor.

When next he opened his eyes, he was in the gentlemen's lav, with Johnny splashing water on his face.

"What... What happened?"

"You must've got a bit of bad gin, my lad. You started hallucinating about Biggles and the boys being out with beautiful women."

"Aren't they?"

"No, old boy, they're in Borneo."

"But I could've sworn..."

"Lay off the hard stuff," Johnny said with a grin. "Now, if you don't mind, it's Valentines Night and I know a cute librarian with a nice flatmate too. You interested?"

Wilks grinned. "You bet!"

The End.

Happy Valentines Day everyone!

Well done, everyone, and a Happy 15th February to you. :mrgreen:
"Where the dickens did you spring from?" he inquired.
"Oh, I was just hanging around, you know, in case I was wanted," returned Algy lightly.

A nice ending, KK. Short and sweet. Thank you.

I like Ginger more and more! :love:

I don't really understand how these things work (are there rules posted somewhere?) but I love reading them :agiggle:

the first poster can set the rules- (for example one line)

Most of the time there aren't any rules, just follow on with something that adds to the story and fits in. It can be funny or serious.

Have fun and enjoy!

Thanks! :D

It looks like the person who writes the first post writes the end as well? Is that right? :writing:

not always. Anyone that comes up with a neat ending can do it.

Well I wanted this one to finish on valentines day, so it had a defined end point. Most of them just go on until they reach a natural conclusion or until people lose interest.

Just have a go at writing a few RPG posts. The knack comes quickly and it's fun when there are lots of contributors.
