I’ll repost the opening bit for now to get us started, but I don’t think we’ve decided on the main body yet. Story or conversation?
You are in a large room. Before you, a fire burns brightly in a stone hearth. You can feel the heat on your face as you look at it, the smell of pine burning tickling the back of your throat. Two oversized armchairs are in front of it, both well-worn but clearly still very comfortable. On a small oak coffee table between the chairs are two steaming mugs of sweet hot chocolate. The whole room feels warm and somewhat homely.
You take a seat in one of the chairs and pick up one of the mugs. Suddenly, you notice the chair opposite you is occupied. [Insert a description here]
Of course, feel free to embelish/alter above as you see fit @cheyyyme, and some sort of descriptive part needs to go in there so she can visulise a person there with her.
