Producer and star of her own series, Miriam is excited about the first day of filming at Pristine River. Her brother Mike agreed to be her cameraman. Miriam walked to the beautiful campsite with a backpack full of standard camping gear and a fishing pole.
Setting up camp on the flat rock, Miriam notices fresh cougar tracks on the bank. Hearing her name being called, Miriam looks around to see Mike’s best friend Jeff; but no Mike. Oh, great, now what? Jeff may be gorgeous, but he drives her crazy. Miriam wonders if she has a better chance fighting off the cougar. (150)
You guys, I rewrote this three times. The second time was better for the story, but wasn't so much a blurb and explaining the idea for the show, so I redid it. I decided to post it here too because it focused more on Miriam's feelings for Jeff. (Except that her name is Sarah there.) To sum them up, it is like the line in Jim Croce's song Operator: "A man she knew well and sometimes hated." Miriam also has a pet wolf named Aslan., who helps do things like protecting her from cougars. Mike broke his ankle, and that is why he couldn't make it to the first day of filming. Here is a copy of that version. Which story do you like best?
