It’s time for another free-for-all story. [much cheering is heard in the background] Same rules as last time, which I’ll recap for the new readers :
- Keep it clean. Don’t use any cuss words nor introduce any “adult” situations.
- Write whatever you want (except as noted above), but keep it somewhat short.
- You can write multiple times, but not back-to-back (even with different aliases).
- If two people write at the same time and they both won’t fit in the storyline, the latter one will be deleted. (Nothing personal; it’s just to keep the continuity of the story.)
- Have fun!
That’s it. Now let’s get started…
Pierre and Jacques were finishing their French caramel lattes in celebration of their just-signed contract when Jean Paul walked into the room. Pierre, the self-proclaimed leader of the group, explained the news to J.P. (Jean Paul), that their idea of exploring and documenting the world’s mysteries had finally been accepted and funded. Just an hour earlier, they had received the call from The Exploration Channel. The contract called for 10 episodes, and the budget for each episode was $100,000. That figure blew their minds, because their business, Explorers Extraordinaire, had never made that much money in an entire year, and now they could make a million dollars in one year.
The three men were chosen for their eagerness about the quest and their unusual sense of humor, along with their sense of reckless abandon, as some of the future projects may be quite dangerous. The timeline was somewhat short, because the producers wanted to bring this show to television while nature / adventure shows were still popular.
The first exploration was to discover the truth about Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster. That seemed like a popular yet fairly easy mission to start with. They had seen a documentary on Nessie just a few weeks ago, but the people on the show never found nor caught this monster that supposedly exists. They each thought up various ways to catch it, and they were very eager to get started. That afternoon, Jacques and J.P. started interviewing potential crewmen while Pierre began developing a plan. They expected this first assignment to be a piece of cake, but little did they know what the future had in store…
