I really enjoyed writing my first short story inspired my Ed Sheeran’s video, “Thinking Out Loud”. I decided to have another go at it. This time I wrote a short story inspired by “The Worst” by Jhené Aiko, in theme with the book, Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, which I am currently reading for the 2015 Reading Challenge. I am loving the mystery thriller aspect of it, which surprised me and yet made sense to me at the same time. If you are looking for a book to read, I am currently about halfway through Gone Girl and I would highly recommend it. Even if you aren’t really into thrillers, there’s a great movie waiting at the end of it (so I’ve heard). But if you haven’t seen Jhené Aiko’s music video you should definitely check it out here. My short story can be found below, enjoy!

I was really intrigued so I decided to try it out with Ed Sheeran’s, “Thinking Out Loud” music video. If you’ve never seen it, you should definitely check it out here. My short story doesn’t follow the video or anything. I simply watched the video and this is the story that resulted. I hope you enjoy!
