Among Us

by Sus | Score: 5050

A mysterious letter has arrived. It was October 20, 1995. My family and I were playing poker with the playing cards my mother had brought into town. These specific type of cards were not the usual 52 card deck one would play with. She purchased them at a garage sale on the month of December the year before. While purchasing them a dull managing director had approached her with a warning. "Be warned! The day my child was born those deck of cards appeared on my desk with the words "This deck of card is cursed haha.". With this knowledge my mother purchased the deck, and a box of markers for her car. My mother had taken out the deck and suddenly... the doorbell rang. It was raining outside and thundering very bad; so we did not expect anyone to be at the door. I had gotten up to open when suddenly, a letter shot through the door. "Addressed to whom ever it may concern." I opened the letter and it went as so. "Hello everyone and thank you for buying the cards. You will all die in different ways if y'all do not take this deal. One will be stabbed by a fork. Another will be killed by an idle traffic warden and finally one will be shot and killed by a distant roofer. The deal is you must each say the worst lie you have ever told. You have 16 hrs." Within these 16 hrs they have taken the deal. Each one saying the worst lie told. After wards we went to waffle house and had eggs and bacon along with waffles.
