Wednesday you’ll find out whether you succeed, work for a year or maybe even die. So vote and check back to see what happens=)

Enjoy.

Alosian Oasis Option Bb2: Go Right Toward the Red Script

The green avenue seems to move even from where you stand. It makes you shudder, so you turn right toward the glowing, red script.

As you enter the avenue, the script glows brighter and the air grows hotter.

The walls of the maze radiate the heat like an oven.

It only takes a few moments before you’re drenched in sweat.

Sipping from your water, you follow the avenue as it curves to the left, and then back to the right.

You come to a T and randomly take the left. It dead ends, so you turn around and head down the right part of the T.

You drink more water, feeling like it’s dripping out of you as fast as you’re drinking it.

The maze takes a left, and then a right and another right.

Another T presents itself and you wish for an end to the red script as it throbs on the walls.

No luck. Both sides of the T still radiate the script.

You turn right only to find another dead end.

Turning back, you head down the left branch only to find it ends in a wall as well.

You start to despair and drop to your knees. Going all the way back seems like it’ll kill you. You’re loosing water faster than when you traveld to the Oasis.

Part of the dead end pops out like a drawer with a shallow bowl. The red script shifts above it until it resembles drops dripping into the bowl.

Thank heavens!

This is easy enough. You pour just enough water from your almost empty skin to fill the shallow bowl.

The wall pulses brighter still and the bottom of the bowl opens, dumping the water onto the hot sand.

You cry out as that water quickly disappears into the ground.

The bowl closes and the script continues to imitate droplets…red droplets.

Blood.

Berta’s parting, “beware the easy way,” runs through your head.

This is anything but easy.

You can use your knife to cut your hand and provide blood but out here, every liquid is precious, especially blood.

Or you can turn back and look for another way. Perhaps the other dead ends present a different challenge

You’re low on water now, so you’d have to find something quick but it might be worth trying.

Do you…

Bb2.1: Try filling the bowl with blood?

Or

Bb2.2: Seek another way?

Blessings,

Jennifer

    Ugh, this is hard. When I was reading the paperbacks, this is the part where I would go back and not choose the maze at all! (I guess I like to win.) But since that isn’t an option, I’m randomly going to point at the screen, and whichever answer is closer to my finger wins. (Because I like to win.) Here goes…try filling the bowl with blood. Yick!

  6. Nate Zeiger says:

    I feel this is a test…..I say spill a few drops.

  7. JARVIS CLAN says:

    Since the life is in the blood (LEV.17:11) we put our 8 votes to seek another way, thirsty or not. Whats up with the human sacrifice, JEN.?
