We're all mad here.
Default 20 words at a time...an improv writing game!   #1  
Round two! With a minor adjustment to the word limit. The objective here is to write a story a few words at a time, working on the fly. Periodically, I'll post and update with the complete story up to it's current point.

For those of you who haven't done this before, here are the rules:

1. Each new post adds a segment of story to the post previous to it.

2. The segment must be *exactly* twenty words, even if this cuts off the segment mid sentence.

3. You may not double post and continue your own segment.

4. You can add comments and such in your posts, just make sure people know they are separate from your story addition, such as changing text colour or adding "OOC" to the front.

5. This is a story, not a role play, so everyone will be working with the same characters as they appear or disappear. This is not the place for original characters that you don't want other people to mess around with.

Ninja posting can happen. Don't panic. In that case, just continue according to the last post. It's hardly going to be smooth sailing the entire time. You can change perspectives and such from time to time, but please don't ignore someone else's post since a lot of this is improvisation, and working with what you get handed.

Off we go!

Leo stared at the blood coating his knife, his hands trembling, his breathing shallow and rapid. What had he done?
