Let's write a story together! The rules are very simple: Every poster adds a short section to the story (it can be as small as two lines or a complete wall of text), and every section ends with a mid-sentence cliffhanger ("after some consideration, I decided to...", "however, we were interrupted by...", "when I looked behind me, there was...", etc). Of course, you can't continue your own posts, otherwise you'd be writing alone. Bonus points if you also post a fitting picture with the text. There are no other rules, anything goes. I'll start:

...I'm walking through a dark forest. Rain pours down on me, and branches cut my arms as I make my way across the endless expanse of trees. I don't know what I'm doing here, or how I got here in the first place. All I know is that I'm in a forest, and it's dark. Hence the whole 'dark forest' thing.

After walking past countless trees (just where am I going?), I see something on the ground...it's a ring. I pick it up and feel that something's engraved in the ring, but it's too dark to see. Putting the ring in my pocket, I start walking again.

Soon afterwards, I see something in the distance. It's...a clearing? I move towards it, and as I reach the clearing, I see...

I see that I have a woman's body. I appear to be wearing a wet white chemise, and underneath it were two small breasts.

The clearing had a few large tree stumps in the middle, and I saw Hong Meiling sitting on one of the stumps staring at me. On another stump was an unfinished chess game. For some reason, Meiling's silent stare, and the way her lips were pressed flat in a sort-of smile, was compelling. She didn't say a word, and I felt that I didn't need to say anything either. With some sort of intuition, she took my hand and led me to a small cabin inside the woods.

The cabin is certainly of modest size, but what I can see in the dim light appears very well maintained. Walking through what seems to be a small garden, and then past a large, neat stack of split wood, we enter through the door that opens soundlessly. Darkness envelops my vision as I step inside.

I hear her continue to walk to the far end of the room. A whine of metal, and then a gentle glow emits from the space next to her. Kneeling, she selects pieces of wood from a pile next to the stove and places them carefully to feed the coals and coax them to flame.

Finished, she looks at me with concern showing in her smile. I realize that I am shivering. Radiance and promise of warmth makes my numb limbs begin to ache with the desire to thaw. I make my way towards the fire. She steps away with a small piece of kindling, one end lit. As I huddle next to the stove, catching its heat as best I can, another source of light appears over my left shoulder. A small lamp, sharing space with her beret on a side table next to a tidily made bed.

I sit beside the stove, listening to the angry noise of rain falling against the roof. Another sound, rustling, comes from the right side of the room. I reflexively turn, and see her removing her wet clothes. After taking off her drenched dress, she leans down and places it on the side of a tub in front of her. Bringing her hair over one shoulder, she begins to wring it. Her naked back glistens in the firelight. I become conscious of my own state, and that of my pocketed chemise. I look down at myself to see my skin showing through the soaked fabric, my nipples visible as two faint circles. Although it is sodden, I am vaguely hesitant to part with it. I decide...

I decide to destroy this accursed world.

For a long hours memory of the past centuries consumes my tired mind. Again and again I remembered how children of Adam killed, tortured, and consumed my people. Again and again I remembered my world dying in flames. Again and again I remembered that everything I lived for was destroyed.

I woke up. I felt like I was forgetting something.

Was all that happened just now just a dream? What was that dream all about, what did it mean...? I can't clearly remember. I should just forget about it and continue my day.

I stand up from my bed and walk out of my room, but.........as soon as I open the door, ...a dark forest appears in front of me.

Rain pours down on me through the doorway as I feel my pockets...the ring I picked up earlier...is still in my pocket.

>> No.12529  
I decide to leave the ring with my first and second cousin, twice removed, before I leave the cabin. Picking up my coat from the hanger by the door, I step out into the rainy night. As I leave the cabin, an old traveling tune springs to mind.

The road goes ever on and on...

After traveling for a few hours, I notice a faint light in the distance. It flits between the trees, moving like a child prancing in a field. I decide to...

...walk towards the light.




I open my eyes. I seem to be lying on the ground on a rocky mountain path.

...what was I doing just now...? ...how did I end up here...?

I stand up and look around. Below me is a dark forest, behind me is the mountain, and other than that I can only see the mountain path.

...it seems it's about to start raining. I decide to start moving, as I will get cold wearing only my white chemise.

...only a white chemise...? I feel around my pockets, but this white chemise seems the only thing I have with me right now. I could've sworn I was wearing something else before...

As I walk down the mountain path, I notice somebody carved some text into the rock.

The road goes ever on and on...

Below it, something else was carved, but I couldn't make out what it was. Taking a closer look, I saw...
