You are Cookie Blankenship, a firefighter who's been hired to prepare a dinner for your fellow firefighters. You don't want to spend too much, so you buy some expired groceries at the grocery store. You serve bread that expired last year, milk that expired in 2015, pizza that expired in 2010 and chips that expired 2000. The co-workers start eating the food and they quickly get sick. You laugh. > You continue... You go back home with your wife and son and try to enjoy your time with them. Your family is happy, but you're not sure if it's because of what happened or because of how things have turned out. Your wife tells you she wants to talk about something else today. She asks you if you would like her to tell a story to your son. You begin to tell a story to your son. He laughs when he hears it. His eyes light up as he begins to ask questions. This makes you smile. It seems that this little boy has grown attached to you. "I'll be right back," you say and leave your house. A few minutes later you return to see your wife sitting on the couch watching TV. Her face shows no signs of happiness. You say "What's wrong, sugartits?" "Nothing". She sits down next to you and looks directly into your eyes. You can feel her sadness through your body. "We need to talk". You look at her and nod. Your son begins to cry. He cries until his mother gets off the couch and walks over to him. She hugs him tightly while looking straight into his eyes. You ask your wife to tell you why she's sad. She says "Because I'm worried about my husband". You say "Why's that?" She answers "My husband was killed by a fireman. My son is still alive and he doesn't know what will happen to him now". You sit there silently. Your wife continues talking. "I don't want him to suffer any longer than I already am". You ask you wife "Am I a ghost?". She smiles and nods. "Yes, I think we should speak again". You set out to find the fireman who killed you. The Fireman You walk along the street where many people live. You notice several houses have their windows open. Some of these houses are empty, others are occupied. There's also a lot of noise going on outside the houses. A man stands near one of the houses. He wears a black suit and tie and wears glasses. He looks around thirty years old. You sneak up behind the man and gently whisper in his ear "Did you kill me?". He slowly shakes his head "No, I didn't do anything". You smile and nod. "Good", you say and slip away. You walk along the streets and soon reach an intersection. In the middle of the intersection is a large truck. Two men stand beside the truck. One is wearing a dark blue shirt and pants and holding a baseball bat in his hand. You sneak up behind the truck and gently whisper in its tailpipe "Did you kill me?". It slowly shakes its head "No, I didn't do anything". You smile and nod. "Good", you say and slip away. You walk along the streets and soon reach an intersection. In the middle of the intersection is a large truck. Two men stand beside the truck. One is wearing a black t-shirt and jeans and holds a pistol in his hands. You sneak up to the pistol and whisper in it's barrel "Did you kill me?". It slowly shakes its head "No, I didn't do anything". You smile and nod. "Good", you say and slip away. You walk along the streets and soon reach an intersection. In the middle of the intersection is a large truck. Two men stand beside the truck. One is wearing a dark green t-shirt and jeans and holding a rifle in his hands. You realize the man holding the rifle is Jeff "Likely Murderer" Smith, your former co-worker at the firehouse. He gets in the truck and drives toward the cemetary. You decide to follow him. You hide behind a nearby tree and wait for him. Jeff drives past a graveyard and stops at a cemetery gate. He opens the gate and goes inside. You hear screams coming from within. You watch as Jeff enters the church and shoots the priest in the chest before turning around and shooting another priest who is kneeling on the floor praying. You sneak up to Jeff "Likely Murderer" Smith put your finger in the barrel of his gun and say to him "I know you killed me". Jeff turns around and fires two shots at you. You fall backwards and roll onto the ground. You scream as blood pours out of your mouth and nose. Jeff picks up his gun and points it at you. "Now you die". You realize you are reliving the circumstances of your death. You begin to plot your revenge against Jeff "Definite Murderer" Smith. > You shoot Jeff You quickly run towards Jeff "Likely Murderer" Smith. As you approach, Jeff raises his gun and fires two shots at you. You duck and roll away from the bullets. The gunfire sounds throughout the neighborhood. You crawl out of sight and hide under a car. You listen for any movement. Nothing happens. You lie down and close your eyes. You possess the car and run over Jeff. You pull the trigger. You awaken with a start. You're lying on the grass not far from where you died. You A portal opens up in the heavens. A hand beckons. Your trauma resolved, you ascend to the afterlife. Your life has ended.
