Revision of story:
After last week’s presentation, I decided to rework my story again. This time, it follows closer to the original plot, just with a different setting.
Instead of 12 young, beautiful sisters, there will be twelve elderly women in a senior citizen’s home. The person who will solve the mystery (in place of the young man) will be a nurse that works there. Instead of the old lady who helps the young man, there is a crazy old man who needs help facetiming his granddaughter. When the nurse tells him, he gives the nurse a hint about how to solve the mystery. In this version, the old ladies don’t drug the nurse. Instead, they knit her a blanket so soft and comfortable, that she instantly falls asleep whenever she uses it. I think the mystery is going be why the old women are always covered in sugar and cinnamon. One of their relatives comes to visit, and asks the nurse to find out. The nurse heeds the man’s advice, does not wear the blanket the ladies knitted for her, and follows them into a magical land of baked goods. There, they first pass trees with flowers of fondant. Next, they pass through a patch of forest that rains sprinkles. Finally, they reach the churro castle, where they boogie and bingo the night away in a cinnamon sugar paradise. The nurse collects a fondant flower, sprinkles, and finally a bingo chip made of churro dough to present to the relative. I haven’t quite figured out what the reward that the relative gives the nurse will be yet.
Sara: A young nurse who has just started working at the nursing home. She is eager to learn new things and curious, but is not sure what to expect at her new job. When approached by one of the resident’s relatives to solve the mystery of the sugar and cinnamon-coated elderly women, she is both confused and intrigued.
Paul: Paul is an elderly fellow who has resided at the senior citizen’s home for quite some time. His hobbies include whispering to the plants and conjuring up ideas about the other residents at the home. He is considered an outsider, and has no close relations with any of the other residents. (I might have to make him look a little crazier)
Rosa: Rosa has been a resident at the senior citizen’s home for a few months now. She is the social butterfly of the home, and has a close-knit group of twelve other residents. In her free time, she knits mysterious objects with her special wool, and entertains visits from her daughter who can never figure out why she is covered head to toe in small grains of sugar and cinnamon. When some of the other residents comb their hair, dandruff flakes fall onto their shoulders. For Rosa and her friends, sugar falls from her luscious silver locks when her hair is combed.
