Choose Your Own Adventure: The Great Antler, Chapter 3

Jax stared at the floating wisp in puzzlement. What did it mean by choosing a doorway? Jax turned to ask Discover of his opinion on the matter, when her eyes were suddenly blinded by light. “Gaah, what’s with the light?!” Jax tried to shield her eyes but as quickly as the light came it was gone, and so was Discover. “What the?! Discover, where did you go?”

Jax quickly turned to Toby, only to see he was gone too. Jax suddenly gave a loud gasp. The tower, the wisp of light, the raft, the whole landscape was gone. “Where am I,” Jax exclaimed? Jax found herself on top of a floating rock of land in the middle of the sky with no sign of the ground she was previously on below her. 

Jax began to panic. “Oh God…please…not again…I don’t want to be alone…” tears began to well up in her eyes thinking of her time spent in this world. “Am I forever cursed to be alone in this world?”

“I DON’T WANT TO BE ALONE!” she screamed.

Her words echoed out into the empty sky and suddenly there was a faint reply.

“Hello Jacquelyn.”

Jax knew that voice. “You…” she said coldly.

Trish stood behind Jax wings folded in a sombering way. “I imagine you have questions…”

Jax turned around with conflicting thoughts in her head. Trish had helped her out a lot but yet there were some deep buried conflicts between her and Trish that were bubbling up from her past.

Jax clenched her fist and said, “Just a few…”

What question do you want to ask first?

A:) What did you do with Discover and Toby?

Or

B:) Where am I and why are you here?

3.2A

“WHERE AM I AND WHY ARE YOU HERE?” Jax screamed as her anger came to a boil.
“WHAT DID I DO WRONG THIS TIME TRISH? DID I BREAK ANOTHER ONE OF YOUR RULES OF THE LAND? SHOULD I HAVE JUST LEFT DISCOVER TO WANDER INTO ENDLESS DANGER SCARED AND ALONE LIKE I DID?”

Trish stood there with an annoyed look on her face. “You finished?” She asked, waving her hand up in gesture. “I know I’ve been strict with you in the past…”

“STRICT, YOU WOULDN’T EVEN LET ME STAY WITH ANYONE THAT I MET,” Jax was letting all of her anger out upon Trish. “WHY AM I NOT ALLOWED TO DO ANYTHING TRISH? WHY AM I…”
“I DON’T WANT YOU TO GET HURT AGAIN!” Trish Screamed startling Jax.

Tears welled up in Trish’s eyes. “I…I don’t want you to get hurt again…and this…this is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do…”

Jax suddenly felt regret for letting her anger out. Trish looked really upset and hesitant on what she wanted to say.

“I’m…I’m sorry Trish…You were there for me at my greatest need and I owe you greatly for that. I just…”

What do you do next?

A:) Walk over and comfort Trish and ask what is it she has to do?
OR
B:) Stand and wait for Trish to respond.
