How Am I Here?

by Anonymous | Score: 3350

I woke up with a start as the turtle crawled over my face. Without thinking, I swatted it aside and stood up. Naturally, I reached for my gun and shot the turtle through the shell. I reloaded and looked around. Nothing anywhere.
I knew I needed to find out where the exit was. I walked forward. At the slightest noise, I would shoot again. Suddenly, I heard a voice: "Darius. You need to avenge a death to exit this room. You will find the file on the desk in the corner."
I walked over and picked up the file. Opening it, I found a picture of myself and my name: Darius Crane. I was supposed to avenge my own death, but who killed me? I continued reading the file and found the murderer just as it started to thunder outside: Darius Crane. I was supposed to avenge my own suicide by committing suicide.
