#AtoZChallenge - Wait here!

It's all about the 50/50 splits these days! The Tiebreaker is getting quite a workout this year.

For those who are here for the first time, this is an interactive fiction adventure. I will write a scene every day, and my visitors will vote for where they want the story to go next, by leaving a comment on the post. You can start from the beginning here.

Sir Andrew held his breath and stood as still as possible as he waited for the gravel-voiced reptile to leave the room. He had barely begun to exhale in relief when he felt a tug and a scamper on his cloak. He gasped in surprise to see a Squirrel suddenly standing on his shoulder.
In a breathy, highpitched voice the Squirrel said, "Sir Andrew! We saw you climb into the room! I come with a message from Gorilla!" He handed Andy a small scroll of paper, where he saw in Gorilla's brutish handwriting:
"Message from Queen said Turtle."
Andy's eyes went wide. "Oh, Gorilla, THANK YOU! Come with me, Squirrel! I know where she is!!"
Squirrel poked his head out the door and made a tiny-handed gesture to tell Sir Andrew the coast was clear. Andy scooped up his little helper and carried him up the stairs, past the King's antechamber (he was amused to note that the pink clothes hamper had been left laying on its side after disgorging its contents), and back to the Turtle's room.

How should Andy approach the room?
eXpress his dismay at Turtle's betrayal, and wheedle his way to the Queen.
or run eXtra fast through the room straight to what must be a doorway hidden by the tapestry.

We're almost there! We've almost found her!
How should Sir Andrew handle the situation? Let me know in the comments, and we'll see how it goes tomorrow :)

  6. I am bold enough among many others to state that there is now a potent cure to this sickness but many are unaware of it. I discovered that I was infected with the virus 3 months ago, after a medical check-up. My doctor told me and I was shocked, confused and felt like my world has crumbled. I was dying slowly due to the announcement of my medical practitioner but he assured me that I could leave a normal life if I took my medications (as there was no medically known cure to Herpes). I went from churches to churches but soon found that my case needed urgent attention as I was growing lean due to fear of dying anytime soon. In a bid to look for a lasting solution to my predicament, I sought for solutions from the herbal world. I went online and searched for every powerful trado-medical practitioner that I could severe, cos I heard that the African Herbs had a cure to the Herpes syndrome. It was after a little time searching the web that I came across one Dr Itua(A powerful African Herbal Doctor), who offered to help me at a monetary fee. I had to comply as this was my final bus-stop to receiving a perfect healing. My last resolve was to take my life by myself, should this plan fail. At last it worked out well. He gave me some steps to follow and I meticulously carried out all his instructions. Last month, to be precise, I went back to the hospital to conduct another test and to my amazement, the results showed that negative,Dr Itua Can As Well Cure The Following Desease…Cancer,Hiv,Herpes, Hepatitis B,Liver Inflammatory,Diabetis,Fribroid, Dercum,Get Your Ex Back, You can free yourself of this Herpes virus by consulting this great African Herbal Doctor via this e-mail: drituaherbalcenter@gmail.com or call and whatsapp him on +2348149277967 He will help you and his herb medication is sure. he has the cure on all disease .You can talk to me on INSTAGRAM..tashamoore219....
