Fandango is our host for the story starter prompt, 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. It doesnt have to be the first sentence in your story, and you dont even have to use it in your post at all if you dont want to. The purpose of the teaser is simply to spark your imagination and to get your storytelling juices flowing

Then he realised it was just thunder, and as the thunder roared and the lightning streaked across the sky he kept walking, hoping that he would come to a clearing in the trees soon.
