Book Report Challenge, Part 4

What happened next?

Have you finished a book yet during this readathon? This challenge works best with a book you have finished, or that you are nearly finished with. Your assignment is to write, chart, or draw the next chapter(s). Tell us what happens next in the main plotline, or to one of the characters, etc.

For example, if your report is on Hamlet, you might focus on what poor Horatio did after the last curtain. Now that the king and queen and Hamlet are all dead, and the Norwegian king, Fortinbras has turned up, does Horatio stick around to help? Does he leave Denmark? Is he going to be haunted for the rest of his life by the mess that the royal family of Denmark made of things? Does he write off Denmark entirely, move to Sweden or someplace nice and warm like Spain or Algeria where he can marry and settle into a career of some kind? Does Fortinbras stick around to sort out Denmark himself, or does he send his annoying cousin to manage Denmark? Or maybe one of Ophelia’s companions happens to be Hamlet’s cousin and is now the woman to marry to become the new king. There are so many next chapters possible, and you can tell your version in whatever direction you wish.
