This is like a continuing story game, except you work backwards, not only to make the story interesting, but to prevent characters from dying.

Player 1:
Bob died.
Player 2:
Jim killed Bob.
Player 3:
Jim got really pissed.

I'll start:

Clark lowered his 9mm pistol, and got back into his car.  It would be weeks before the body was found.

"It wasn't my fault!" cried Allen "You have to believe me!" But alas Clark did not. A shot Rang out piercing the midnight Air.
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

Clark walked in and saw Allen and his wife sharing the same bed. He was slightly proud that his suspicions had been correct and glad that he'd brought a pistol.

Clark was climbing the stairscase to the room above. In one hand he had a note and in the other, his gun.

"I want you to know that our love has been growning weaker and staler through the years.  We are finished," said the note.
Sophie winced as she pressed the envelope closed and placed it in the mailbox.

Clark exited the store and got in his car.

Meanwhile, Sophie was writing a note...

Off topic a bit: this is confusing... I have nothing to add.
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

Sophie had finally decided to break the news to Clark.

Clark was a high earning attourney, a concussion sustained years earlier had made him super aggressive.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

"Look out Clark!" she shouted at the top of her lungs.
The train blared loudly just as Clark dived away...

Sophie was having another flashback. That horrible day when Clark barely missed being killed by the train. He ended up in the hospital with minor injuries and he was never the same. That was also the day she met Allen. She closed her eyes and could see it in her mind as if it were yesterday.

Sophie started to moan and toss and turn in her bed, where she lay alone.

Sophie got ready for bed, as Clark slept on the couch.

Sophie arrived late from her job to find Clark back from a three-day hiatus, completely passed out on the couch.
