Choose Your Own Adventure

 

Against reason, I slow down, trying to pull myself together.  They told me the drugs would work.  They have to work.  Jensen’s trustworthy, at least as trustworthy as anyone is in our profession. 


I probably shouldn’t have had that sandwich this morning.  It had a fishy taste, both literally and figuratively.  If I hadn’t eaten it, I definitely would not have spent a two whole hours puking up in that shitty bathroom.  Then I wouldn’t have been so damn late with this delivery. 


Thank God, it stopped moving.  It’s like carrying a malfunctioning time bomb.  I never thought I would end up here.  My parents told me I had a bright future once upon a time.  To them, I was going to be the fucking president of the United States.


Suddenly, I involuntarily squint my eyes as bright lights shine right in my face.  I hear a voice shout from the car:


“Give us the box!”


Knew I shouldn’t have slowed down…


Should I:
Reason with the voice from the car and try not to cause more problems

Run to the Basement and keep the box
