My best suggestion is to try and imagine the scene surrounding the incidents you have and begin to describe it in the narrative voice you have chosen - first person, third, etc. and try to follow your mind's eye and tell the story to an imagined reader. Be sure to include all the sensory details, smells, sights, sounds...
Which is basically what I also suggested. With two of us suggesting basically the same thing there must something to it I'd think.
