Your heroine is in a show. She’s trying to find a quiet place where she can make a phone call and wanders into the basement of an old bar. She finds a quiet corner, the basement has a dirt floor and rock walls – it’s the creepiest basement that she’s ever been in – but this call is important. Taking a deep breath, she dials the number.

The person answers. Before she can get out what she needs to say someone grabs her rear end. There’s no one behind her. Hanging up the phone, she bolts out of the basement. She finds a mirror and looks at her backside. It’s bruised and there are fingerprints. What does she do? Who was she calling on the phone? Why? What did she have to tell them that was so difficult? What type of performer is she and why is she performing at the bar?

Have fun with it!
