5th sentence, 74th page: You pop the trunk, hoist the body over your shoulder and hustle up the stairs.
This short story is like a choose your own adventure. But the decisions have already been made, and they are all the worst ones possible.
I love choose your own adventure stories. The fact that I thought I had found one in Blood Lite III was a bit of a surprise. But, as with every other story in this collection, it was nothing like what I expected. For starters, all of the decisions had been already made.
You know those stories that you feel like the character is constantly making the wrong choice? And it’s almost painful to watch? Well, this is like that… but it’s worse because the other (smarter) choices are actually laid out for you as you go through. Every single time you are forced into a scenario with a horrible decision and my goodness it is kind of painful to read. But incredibly fun.
