Fandango is our host for the story starter challenge. Here is what he says about it.
Its time for my weekly Story Starter prompt. Heres how it works. Every Tuesday morning (my time), Im going to give you an incomplete teaser sentence and your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to build a story (prose or poetry) around that partial sentence.

Quickly, he thought up an answer.

Kallie blushed, she loved larry with every bone in her body.
Little did she know what he was planning to do to her. But since she’d woken up, his plan would have to go on hold.
