Round 2 –Accident round
Welcome all teams, to our second round – Accident round
After we sang about blood and wars together behind the shelter, I actually felt at home with this group of people. They were warm and gentle but also a bit dark and dubious. I would be aiming for my own demise if I should trust them right away. We are not in a place of greenery and tranquility after all.
However, we decided that we should work together for a while, at least. It seemed that they were alone as well. So we might just as well work together. No harm in trying.
While we were walking through the dark corridors we heard terrifying screams that ached between the walls. The screams was so horrible they etched right into our bones. What was ahead of us? We continued to walk with an airy feeling in our chests.
Suddenly one of my team members whispered to me.
– I cannot go any further. I do nOt wish to enter a certain death! He said with his shoulders close to his ears while shaking his legs in fear.
– Do you really wanna go back to that battlefield? There is nothing left for you there. I’m going, do whatever you want to do, but I’m continuing exploring this maze!
His team member hesitated, but stayed with the rest of the group. At least for now.
While we were walking we heard aNother airy scream. This time it was much closer to us than before.
– There must be something ahead of us! Something that we cannot know of ahead, I thought to myself.
We continued to walk, but with baby steps. Something about the ground that we were walking on seemed really off. Somehow the shape of the rocks seemed more flat than usual. While we were walking we heard a feW distinct clicks. Suddenly a scream! The team member that wouldn’t go any further was lifted up in the air by a giant flesh-eating plant!!
– RUUUUUUUUUN!!!! I shouted out to the rest of my team!
And we began to run for our lives, leaving the dying scream of our team member behind.
I felt tears. Not one. Many. I was angry. Mostly on myself. How could I leave someone behind to die?
I felt a song build up in my chest. I know that my team members felt the same. I felt a warm hand on my shoulder and a sweet voice beside my ear.
– Accidents can happen. Don’t worry.
I felt disgusted hearing those words.
