Play

I was at a bar with E. Apparently this was her idea. We sat down at a table and chatted for awhile. And then came the drinks. I ordered one, and then E decided it would be a good idea to order five. "Hey, do you really think that's a good idea? I thought you said your tolerance wasn't great." She responded by laughing and nothing else. Her drinks were served by the waitress one-by-one. And one-by-one, E downed each cocktail quickly. I took a look around the bar for a bit and noticed it was also an arcade. Somewhere towards the back, I spot S standing at an arcade cabinet with a line forming around him. I guess he had a win streak going on. I look back to E and her face is rosy. That aside, she had no other signs of being intoxicated. She got up and ran off. I quickly pay for our bill and try to find her.

The arcade section of the bar was a lot bigger than I thought it was. I couldn't find E, so I went to go say hello to S. I decided against it. I looked at the arcade screen from the back of the crowd, and the screen displayed 78 wins. So decided to keep looking for E. When I did, I found her at a racing game. She may not have been acting drunk, but her driving in that video game sure was. Maybe the alcohol hit harder when she got up to walk around. I see all of the other players focused on winning the race, and E is driving the wrong way against the flow of cars crashing her car into the other players.

Then I woke up.

Burn

I was out walking late at night. I didn't see anyone else. I was alone, walking along a sidewalk. The sidewalk was cracked and old. It hadn't been repaired in quite some time. The streetlights were dim and it made it hard to see what's in front of me. What felt like hours later, I found a flashlight in front of me. I picked it up and turned it on. I could finally see what's in front, but it was nothing special. Just more old, busted sidewalk. I kept walking on, and I could feel the flashlight in my hands getting warmer. A little while longer, and it started getting uncomfortably warm. I didn't let go of it because I wanted to see ahead of myself. Then at some point, it started burning my hand. I still didn't let go. I heard a voice. It was an old man saying, "Stubborn fool, aren't you? Can't go on without seeing what's ahead, so you choose to burn yourself."

Then I woke up.

I was taking care of some pets. I distinctly remember giving a few peanuts to a mouse. I don't remember what happened next before waking up.
