I am writing an assignment for an assembly, and I already have the ending, but thought that you guys might enjoy reading it. It is based on the short story, The Gift of the Magi, By: O Henry.
Here it is!Gift of the Magi- writing assignment

Rick was a multi millionaire. He owned the company “Pepsi”, and “Coca- Cola” as well as some other, smaller business, like WestJet, and United Airlines. He also owned two countries, Brunei, and Guatemala. He was medium build, dark blonde hair, and loved Christmas the most. Every year was the same thing. He would buy his newlywed wife, Alice jewels, or a very, very successful business or sports team. But he thought that the last Christmas, when He bought her the Polaris ATV and Snowmobile Company, she looked happy, but he still didn’t feel satisfied. He wanted to give her a gift from the heart. So he went on a quest. He decided to go to one of his countries, and decided instead to go to Jamaica. He left a note for Alice, and got into his 1988 Chevrolet Callaway Sledgehammer Corvette. He loved that car, not only because it was one of the fastest car in the world, but because he inherited it from his father when he has his early demise.
Alice was a blonde, athletic, and also medium built. At 22 years old, she was a year older than her 21 year old husband. She also was rich. She loved Christmas, and decided that she wanted to buy her husband something special. Last year she bought Rick a brand new Model 700 Remington .308, and all of the hunting gear to go with it, but he didn’t like it because he did not have time to hunt and so he returned it for the full cash value, and spent it on buying himself a new truck. This year she wanted to give him something special, something that he loved. She decided that she had to get away from work to get away from all of the stress and hassles. She flew to Cuba.
When Rick flew into Jamaica, he had brought his car along. It would work well on these roads. He decided to rent a house boat for a few weeks, and sail up to cuba, not knowing that Alice was there, and thinking that she would be at home, he bought her some sea shell jewellerey at a road side stand. He thought that it was so cheap, that he would just put in her stocking.

Have fun! let's see how many endings that you can come up with.
