1.  Your best friend tells you that she feels like someone's been watching her. The next day she goes missing.

2.  No, there's absolutely no way that ghosts are real. Sure, you just saw a mysterious fuzzy figure you appear before you in your house, but that had to be your imagination... right?

4.  Lightning strikes your main character and he/she wakes up in the hospital with a small black goblin perched on their shoulder, which no one else can see.

5.  You hear your mom calling you into the kitchen. As you are heading down the stairs you hear a whisper from the closet saying "Don't go down there honey, I heard it too."

6.  He opened the letter and sunk to his knees in the middle of the driveway.

7.  A group of childhood friends reunites for their 25th reunion only to learn that each of them has undergone drastic changes in their genders and sexualities.

8.  The competitive world of belly flop competitions.

9.  Your character is at a friend's house for a dinner party. Suddenly, someone they absolutely despise walks in. What do they do now?

10.  She might never get the chance to be alone with him again. Her husband was across the country; he'd never find out, so why not?
