Writing Exercise #12: Imagine a back story based on something you witness.

Here’s mine:

Today I witnessed a couple cuddling together beneath a shady tree while walking around my apartment complex. I thought about why the couple might be lying there instead of inside. It didn’t take long to put together the following back story:

Teenage homeschooled boy with strict father and bedridden mother not allowed to leave his apartment complex. He’s very lonely but most of the other teenagers in the complex think he’s weird because of his religious family. One day he spots a girl sitting in the sand on the playground, drawing on herself. They become friends. They want to become more, but the boy’s family has strict rules concerning dating. The teenagers decide to keep their budding romance a secret, finding various places at the complex to be together.
