It is Friday afternoon. You finally got out of work. You hop on your old Harley Davidson and ride the roads that surround the city of Tucson. The wind brushes your hair back and the road is empty. You are going 80 miles per hour.
[[Slow Down]]You push down turning your knucles up and feel the wind pushing harder. You can only hear the purring of the motor. The mountain ahead of you is getting bigger and bigger and the orange sky is bleeding into different hues of pink and red.
You notice in the distance a person waving their arms in the middle of the road. Next to them is a car that seems to have broken down.
[[Slow down and go offer your help]]
[[Accelerate and ignore them]]
You slow down and you are now driving at 55mph. The road is still empty but you are playing it safe. You now question yourself "Am I really this lame?"
Yes, [[I do not want to be in an accident]]As you come closer to the silhouette, you notice that she is a woman and she seems very distressed.
You stop 10 feet away from her and she immediately starts running towards you. You think you might've seen movement in the her car but you are unsure, it could've been a reflection of a bird or something.
"Oh thank god, I really thought I wasn't going to find anyone. My car broke down and my phone died. You have to help me."
[[Get off the motorcycle]]
[[Accelerate and ignore them]]
You turn the gas up and zoom past them. You see in your mirrors, a woman running after you and begging for you to stop.
You look behind and she is on her knees with her head in her hands.
When you look back in front of you see a strange fox-like animal right in front of you. You barely have time to react, you squeeze the brakes but it is too late. The motorcycle looses its balances and you get thrown head first onto the road.
[[Everything goes Black]]You stop the motorcycle and get off to inspect her motor.
You are both walking next to eachother.
You arrive in front of the car and look at the motor.
Everything seems fine, you turn to the woman to ask her more about what the problem is but she is no where to be found.
[[Go back to your motorcycle]]
[[Run into the desert]]"How fun of you to take no risk" you tell yourself.
You rush home (while respecting the speed limits) to your trailer and enjoy a microwable meal by yourself in front of the TV. You then slip into bed and sleep.
"Phew, this day could've been full of dangers, good thing I played it safe though"
Congrats on being a super fun person.
[[START OVER]] You nervously walk back to your motorcycle. As you put your hand on the handle bars you feel a sharp pain in the back of your head.
[[Everything goes Black]] You run away into the desert and leave your motorcycle on the road. You run so fast and throw quick glances behind you. You hear your motorcycle starting up and you see it ride into the distance with two people on it.
[[Walk back towards the car]]You are dead.
[[START OVER]] (either: "[[You walk back safely to the car]]" , "[[You get bitten by a snake]]")You get back to the car and search it. You find a crowbar in the trunk.
[[Try to start the car]]
(set: $crowbar to 0)You see some move at your feet. You look down and hear a rattling sound. You barely have to move that the snake already sprung from the sand and onto your pants, biting your genitals. You struggle to pull the snake out and the pain is gradually getting worse and worse. Your vision gets blurry and you begin to stumble. The pain in your testicles is unbearable.
You attempt to walk but fail and fall on your face.
[[Everything goes Black]] (set: $crowbar to 1)
You now have a (color:red)[Crowbar]
[[Try to start the car]] You get into the car and turn the ignition. The car coughs and the motor does not start. You try multiple times and the car still doesn't start.
(if: $crowbar is 0)[[[Give it another try]]]
(if: $crowbar is 1)[[[Exit the car]]]You turn the key in one more time and the whole car bregins to shake and turns on. You take some time to process what is going on. The radio is blasting music very loudly.
[[Turn it off]]
You step out of the car and hear a faint humming sound.
You see in the distance a motorcycle driving towards you.
It is getting dark.
[[Stand in the middle of the road and ask for help]]
[[Hide behind the car]]You press the button to turn the radio off but the music is still playing. You attempt to lower the volume but that doesn't work either.
The radio seems to be off but it is somehow still playing music very loudly.
You look up through the windshield and notice that the mountain is gone. You are surrounded by a seemingly infinitely long desert.
You look into the distance and see something coming towards you. Like some sort of huge misty wave. The music is still blasting.
It now seems that the car is driving on its own. Driving back to where you originally came from.
The music is blasting and the wave is following you. The wave seems to get darker and darker, and as much as you would like to accelerate, you have no control over the car.
The wave is getting frightenly close.
You see something infront of you coming at great speed.
You see yourself driving the motorcycle as you were doing about an hour ago. You see yourself accelerating and looking at the mountains, you remember what you thought at that time.
In an instant the wave submerges you into darkness at the exact same time you crash into the motorcycle that was driving straight at you.
You see yourself crashing through the winshield landing on you.
[[Everything goes Black]]
You stand in the middle of the road and start waving you arms.
The motorcycle driver stops in front of you and offers his help.
[[Hit him with your crowbar]]
[[Ask if he can drive you to Tucson]]You run behind the car and hide there. You here the motorcycle driving past you, and shrinking in the distance.
It is now very dark out and you are getting hungry and thirsty and tired.
You are considering walking back. It would be around a 10 hour walk.
[[Spend the night in the car]]
[[Try to walk back to Tucson]]You decide to spend the night in the car.
You lay down on the back seats and close your eyes.
It is very cold in the car and you are shivering.
You feel a pain on your calf, as though you had been pricked by a needle.
You remember hearing about lethal spiders in the desert and you are not scared.
You reassure yourself by telling yourself that that is very unprobable.
Is it though?
[[Everything goes Black]] You start walking towards Tucson.
It is cold and you are getting very tired.
Your whole body is aching but you keep on walking.
You are now walking in the dark and enter a weird trance in which you cannot feel your body anymore.
You just feel like a roaming soul advancing through darkness.
Everything seems very surreal.
[[Everything goes Black]] You take your crowbar and whack him accross the head.
He falls to the ground making a pool of blood around him.
You hop on the motorcycle and drive away.
You do not fully process what just happened.
You arrive home and go straight to bed. You fall asleep instantly.
You wake up the next day with blood on your hands. Its feels like everything was just a bad dream.
Was it really necessary to kill that man? Wasn't there an easier more honest way of acting? Your mind is overloading with all sorts of questions and you begin to feel dizzy.
Everything begins to buzz and you realize that you have been sitting on your bed for 4 hours now.
Your here police sirens in the distance.You ask him if he could drive you to Tucson or any other city in the area.
He responds that he just came from Tucson but he would gladly drop you off in a city that is on his way.
You thank him and hop on the back seat.
Maybe people aren't all bad after all.
