Prompt the Muse #17 - Wednesday Speculative Writing Prompt

Art: Planet collision
You need to write a paragraph where two characters have a great impact on one another.  They have never met, and do not meet in the paragraph, either.  What happens that allows these two characters to have such an effect on one another?  Write the paragraph in 150 words, either as an outline of your ideas, or as you would put it in a story.

Saw this on the NaNo forums, so I figured I'd pop over and take a look! The interesting thing is that this prompt is actually a major part of the first half of my novel. To make it very simple, I have two main characters. One witnessed a murder (or, more correctly, happened upon the body just after the murder), the other is investigating it. They've never met, but already, they've had a massive impact on one another's lives. It's very interesting!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! The plot for your novel sounds interesting - I hope you have a great Nano and get it all down on paper.
