Daily Prompt – Choose Your Adventure

“Write a story or post with an open ending and let your readers invent the conclusion.”
Thanks for the great idea, warturoadam77p!
The adventure begins…….
The Consequences of Time – I Need Your Help!
“Thank God you are here – I need your help.
Yes – you! You’re coming along with me for this adventure, whether you like Dr Who or not!
This is my second attempt heading through the time cycle – things didn’t go too well for me the first time round, so I had to hit the reset button.
These reset button are a one shot deal – they take an enormous amount of energy. My machine doesn’t have any more charges left in it for a third run. We only have 24 hours left before we’re transported back permanently and this is why I need your help.
I know we have to alter key events, in order to save the fate of the world, all of which are tied to my own life.
After my first unsuccessful run, I’ve realised that we only have time to influence three of the six key events before we have to travel back in time and face the consequences.
These events are:-
a). Switching a newspaper for one containing fake stories in a murder trial investigation.
b). Saving a young girl from a burning building.
c). Stopping a wedding.
d). Cover up of a political scandal.
e). Preventing a sportsman from ending his career with drugs.
f). Convincing a world renowned surgeon to stay on at a hospital.
Which three do we choose to resolve, how do we deal with them and what is their ultimate consequence for us both?
Our fate and the fate of the free world now lies in your capable hands – I’m counting on you hero, don’t let me or yourself down!”
Now here comes the fun part.
You can choose your own adventure and fill out the Comments section below.
The best ones may be able to be developed into a novella in the future, which I would be happy to acknowledge you in its creation (or vice versa if I have inspired you!)
I used to read these types of stories years ago (Fighting Fantasy – Steve Jackson & Ian Livingstone), so who knows, maybe I will have to have a whole spin-off series of Choose Your Adventure stories in the future!
Of special worthy note – Edward Hotspur has written a truly excellent “Choose Your Own Adventure” story, one of the best I have ever seen on a blog and very funny to boot. Ladies and gentlemen, may I present:-
Some other adventures for you to follow via my fellow bloggers – I’m going to be participating in them too (wherever possible) as time goes on 🙂
