Prompt

 “Of all the gin joints, in all the towns, in all the world, she walks into mine.” –Rick in Casablanca

Write a story where a character gets into trouble thanks to a coincidence.  Come up with your own plot! For instance, you could write about a protagonist who has committed a crime for the first time in their life and walks around the corner into a police officer. A woman who needs a kidney that finds out her perfect living donor just so happens to be her worst enemy. The new hire at your character’s work just so happens to be the person whose heart they broke many years ago in another state. Just make sure the reader is still willing to suspend disbelief and keep reading!

Five Words

Clever, Bane, Calibrate, Banal, Coincidence

Bonus Prompt
Write about the dragon who rescued the princess from a knight.
