This was by far the highest stakes game of rock-paper-scissors I had ever played. And it was only Tuesday. I knew my life depended on it, but wasn’t sure how serious Adam would take this game. I knew he was dangerous, but how far would he take a game? And would he really lock me back into the closet again if I lost? I had already spent the majority of the last two days in the closet. What had started off as a fun vacation had quickly turned into a nightmare. Jessica swore that Adam was a great guy and would be the life of the party. She again swore to me this morning she didn’t know how dangerous he was. I haven’t seen her in the last few hours so I was certain he had done something to her.
What he had done to her or where she could possibly be, I have no idea. I felt my heart rate speed up as I watched Adam get ready. I felt the bead of sweat roll down the small of my back. I always thought I had some kind of sense of strategy on paper-rock-scissors, but how can you have a strategy when you’re playing against a maniac? Tears started to roll down my cheeks as we started to play. And that’s when the cameras came back on.
“Surprise!” He yelled, smiling. I stared at him, stunned.
“What the fuck,” I said just before punching him in the face.
