So, I’m currently working on a new project that I plan to release simultaneously with my already existing story on Episode. This new story does not yet have a title, but I’ve already worked out the profiles of my main characters and part of the main plot. What I’m stuck on, however, is a key scene in the first chapter. Here’s the context:
The male MC had a childhood crush on a girl who defended him from some bullies when they were children. He and his family moved away, and years later (now he’s 22), he returns to his hometown for the annual town fair, and sees that girl who defended him (only that the reader won’t know that until after they meet at the fair). Now, what I had in mind was having the guy run to get in line where the girl is buying food, and in the process, he knocks into her and a new friend, causing them to fall. I thought about having the girl be a bit rude, but I’m not sure about the falling scene because it’s a bit too cliche and overused. However, the point is that I want the girl to be indifferent and maybe a bit rude… so if anyone has ideas for that particular scene, I’d truly appreciate it.
