Word game

Pretty simple, this. I was perusing through my student dictionary when suddenly I was struck with a thought.

We'll be writing a story, one sentence at a time for each member.

There's a difference though. Our hands will be tied as things go.

You see, before a sentence is written, I'll throw out a word, and this word must be used within the sentence.

First word:

A/a

Aside from this, you're free to come up with . . . whatever!

I know lol I'll look at the next word in the dictionary and write something.

The next word is aardvark.

********************************** is a long word. Introduced to the pre-schoolers, it caused them much consternation and bewilderment - though not as much as the aardvark standing in the corner.

Next word - aback.

I haven't explained things well at all.

For entry #1, the word that had to be used was a.
For entry #2, the word that had to be used was aardvark.
For entry #3, the word that must be used is aback.

These words can be placed anywhere within the required sentence.

Thus, as we stand;

********************************** is a long word. Introduced to the pre-schoolers, it caused them much consternation and bewilderment - though not as much as the aardvark standing in the corner.

Next word - aback.

Crouched in a corner, with time passing, their predicament still not solved, one of the students cried out for her midday abalone - one of her favourite foods.

lol that was filler, basically. either or both of you guys can properly advance the plot

Next word is abandon.

She was a beautiful Japanese girl, left alone because her lover from Melbourne had chosen to abandon her.

abase - to humiliate, to degrade.

Next word is abashed.

THE TWILIGHT ZONE BECAUSE JEFF WOULD NEVER TREAT A JAPANESE BEAUTY IN THIS MANNER, EVER!

********************************** is a long word. Introduced to the pre-schoolers, it caused them much consternation and bewilderment - though not as much as the aardvark standing in the corner. They seemed to be taken aback by the large beast, and made for the door out of fright, but they couldn't open it as the security lock was numbered and their abacus was the other side of the beast. Crouched in a corner, with time passing, their predicament still not solved, one of the students cried out for her midday abalone - one of her favourite foods. She was a beautiful Japanese girl, left alone because her lover from Melbourne had chosen to abandon her. This act she still did not understand, he had treated her so well, but for seemingly no reason at all she felt him abase her. She wrote pleading with him to return but he refused which left her even more abashed. This feeling would soon abate, however, after our unnamed male lead had improved his Japanese and sent her the following note:

Next word is abattoir.

Actually, no, from now on I'll change it. We can write as much as we want, per entry.

But we must include the demanded word, of course.
