Fun Challenge for readers and writers

Right now I am reading a short story collection. I'm not going to give you any details (no genre, authors, titles etc). But one of the stories I just finished had a very interesting and very vague ending. When I read the closing line just something about it made me think, that is a really grand ending.

Then I thought it would make a really fun challenge here! Of course, it'll only be fun if people I'll be watching the views, and I'm hoping the views will match the participation!


I will put the last line from the story below. What you need to do is come up with a synopsis to this story. What has happened in this story? What's it about?

And if by some weird chance you actually KNOW the story this is from, please don't ruin it! :) So without further ado...

"Then...some idiot turned on the lights."

That's it! The end! So, what is this story about?

Ooh...I don't know the story. I'm thinking that it's about the dark...and they plan on letting the witnesses go because they weren't seen, until some idiot turned on the light.

"Oh no those kids I say. Just when we were having some private moments they had to come. Can't they knock on the door?"

Then some idiots turn on the lights and everything exploded! Lol! I don't know maybe it is a comedy and focusing to the great things that was made by the idiots who did not know they are doing something great in their lives for the first time. God bless.

That is a really good, out of the box idea! But no, that is not what this story is about! :) Thank you for participating!

Not at all. Lol. Hahaha! Noo that is not what this story is about! But I'm sure many people can relate lol.

I love this! It's not what this story is about but I definitely think this could be it's own story! And oh gosh, what a sad ending that would be!!!

Okay, this brings out the suspenseful side of me. I might be wrong, but I think some people still use camera with film and when developing film, if lights are turned on, it ruins the pictures. (Or we can say this was back before digital cameras) So, someone was taking pictures and believes he or she had accidentally taken incriminating photos of a murderer. While in the "dark room" (for those who don't know, the dark room is where the film is developed) the one who took the pictures was in the middle of developing when a sound is heard outside the door. "Then...some idiot turned on the lights."
