I want to try out a new kind of interactive story. This time you will have a lot of influence on what’s happening, in two different ways.
After each part of the story, a poll will decide how the story continues. But you also have the possibility to post your suggestions in the comments section and I will do my best to integrate the best/most interesting ones in the story.
I will post a new part every three days, so keep an eye out to vote and get your ideas heard.
The first part is quite short, but that’s because we need to begin with a vote, to see where the story is headed. Enjoy
The only sound in the empty office had been that of Emma typing. When she finally stopped the sudden silence reminded her that she was the last person left. She couldn’t believe her boss had come – five minutes before closing time – with one last assignment. Everyone had left by now and she was sure she had missed her train home. After turning off her computer she was left in darkness, wondering what to do. She had definitely missed her train and for the next one she’d have to wait over an hour.
She could go ask her boss for a ride home. She wasn’t even paid for these extra hours, so it was the least he could do. She just hoped he was in a good mood. (option 1)
Perhaps she should go by the other offices first. If any of her colleagues were still at work they might give her a ride. (option 2)
No, she didn’t want to burden anyone. There wasn’t anyone left anyway. She should just go to the train station and wait for the next train. (option 3)
