STORY IDEA #202: Planet Earth?

A new story idea every single day.

Ideas can be shit, detailed, loose, tight, scenario-based, character-based, or could just be a single line of dialogue which might later unfurl itself into a glorious tendril of butt-tickling wonder-magic … or something.

Stole this concept from @ryanklindsay.

#202: Planet Earth?

The last thing Johnny remembers is walking down a street in late night Manchester and being mugged.

A slam against his head and now he's buried.

He's in some sort of amniotic sack, buried underground.

Panicked, he thrashes himself loose and claws out of the ground. It's a beach. A roaring coastline up ahead, some cliffs behind.

And bones. Lots of bones.

Suddenly someone else emerges from the ground a little up ahead. They're panicked too and they climb out and then out of nowhere a giant snake bursts out of the sand and bites into the man. We now know what the bones are.
Johnny has to make it to the top of the cliffs before the snakes get him and to find out just where the hell he is.
