Burning Questions: What happened to Burton?


This is "slapdashmonuments" creating a new Ficlatte account for the purpose of trying to write some Choose Your Own Adventure stories using Ficlatte's sequeling features. I'll tag work-in-progress parts WIP until the whole story is ready to play.

You move closer and closer to the front of the building, and start to yell for help. Once you seem to be out of danger from the fire, you leave Gundersen there and move with more agility to the window at the front of the building, which is shattered, and wave your arms.

They finally hear you.

You relax at long last, and fall into blackness for at least the third time today.

Overall, you'd say you'd done pretty well.

I'm proud of you, myself.

Now get some first aid, and some rest.


The end.

[Now you can give up, or go back to the beginning of the story (https://ficlatte.com/stories/41125), or simply backtrack with your browser's buttons to another decision point...up to you!]
