An even split in the voting last time, so now it's time for a tie-breaker... There are only two options.
** To read the rules and start from the beginning of the story, click HERE **
You look between the three men. They look at you. You look at them.
"You must come," the man in crimson says. "You must let my wife look at you."
The man in black shakes his head vigorously. He pulls twice at your sleeve.
"You cannot go with either of them," the man in gold says. "You cannot trust a man who will not show his face, and any man who calls a stranger 'friend' is anything but. Come with me. I will help you."
Again the man in black shakes his head and tuggs at your arm.
"Let them go," the man in crimson demands.
The man in black ignores him, staring at you with imploring eyes.
"I said," the man in crimson growls. He withdraws a curved blade from under his silken robe. "Let them go."
The man in black slowly releases you and draws out his own blade. The man in gold stumbles backwards as a crowd forms around you and the two men. Hands pull you back so that you are now part of the circle of bodies that has created an arena, of sorts.
A wind blows, and the robes of the two men flutter. The snap and whisper of silk in the breeze is the only sound that can be heard now in the silent market place.
The men coil. Then, like two desert snakes, they strike.
a) The man in black.
b) The man in crimson.
Place your votes on this, the first ever tie-breaker of the 'Your Very Own Adventure Project.' Don't forget to share around. It's more fun the more votes there are.
Also, I need an image for this project. Must come up with something...
