>But that’s over with, and now you can bang out your reps in peace and quiet.

>And you highly doubt any kids looking for sweets would bother going to your falling apart and spooky looking apartment complex.
>You wonder what your parents would think if they knew about your living situation.

Go to a Halloween party wearing a sexy cat outfit. To meet some (rich) guys. Time to use our sex to move on in life

Pull out knife
Use lighter on the knife to give it a red hot cutting edge so it can cut better.
This is why you always bring a knife when you shower.
Getting the police involved probably won't save you if you're about to get murdered, but might as well. Actually, calling would give away your location so do at your discretion. Either way get ready to stab some ankles.

Well let's bring her the light.
I agree, it's cute.
On one hand I'll he sad to see something cute die, but on the other we'd make a really cute corpse.
Why not? Maybe she's a cute corpse?

Perhaps ask Tomo what her mother's name is? And then try searching for that name online, if our phone has that capability?

Otherwise, ask Tomo how her mother brought her here (for instance, having driven here), and then check if possible whether her mother has already left (in this example, checking whether there's a car Tomo recognizes in the appropriate parking lot).

Justn molest that girl already. it is one in a lifetime opportunity. And take into account that your life may end like at any moment taking into consideration the circumstances and your financial problems.

Do we? All we know is that it's a red car that's 'big' and 'drives super fast'. We don't even have a licence plate number. But I'll just roll with it.

Let's try to spot the car from the window; we lose nothing by making the attempt. If we can't get a clear view of the while car park, we'll take things from there.

Come to think of it, is this place normally this empty at this time? Why's there no staff manning the place? Who closes the gym up after hours?
You're totally jacked so there's nothing to be afraid of. Just hold hands with Tomo-chan and look in the parking lot.

Just try to leave with the girl already, find the door locked, then exercise until either the daemons come for your souls or you succumb to the urge to assault the little girl you weirdo.
Ask the girl if she has her mother's contact number, or if she was given any instructions on what to do if they got separated.

Because if her parent's have disappeared, and we have no way to contact them, then honestly the best thing to do is bring her to the police, because there's a limit to what we can do without information.

Do you know where you live? Or what to do when you get separated?
>Her face changes to

"I live on Broad street!"

>You walk by that street every day on the way home from work!

I-I actually was going that direction, I could take you home if you lead the way, Tomo-chan!

"Really?! I-I'm definitely too scared to walk home alone. But with you I think I could!"
>Sweet! More time with Tomo-chan!
>Plus, you get to berate her parents once you get her home!
She really does deserve better
No, I got it, but it's not a trope used for people under 10. Even in anime, blushing at that would get people to call the police on you. Like, there are gags that are literally that.

So our "cute" MC here is looking like a child rapist right about now.
You have just crossed over into... the Twilight Zone

Just stay calm and inviter her to sleep with you tonight. Very closely while you cuddle for warmth and smell her hair. Then you give her ear a nibble and move your hand to rub her belly.
Lighten up old man. Now is the era of the cute, young, and dead.
4th wall break: Alright, maybe I took it too far. Sorry mang. I just thought it would be a funni. It's my first time writing stuff on the fly so I might accidentally make things weird. Or write something stupid. Again, my bad. I don't want to make 'you' look like a child molester. Unless you chose that path and are a complete weirdo. Then I totally will
It's fine for me. Wholesomely creeping on a child amusing.
It's fine in a "yeah, MC is a lowkey creeper" kind of funny.

There have been more disturbing characters and relationships in hentai. Heck, there have been more disturbing characters and relationships on this board!

Not that the players can admit that.

Hey Tomo-chan, do you mind if I make a quick little phone call?

>You know when your shifts are better than anyone else.
>You'd never call to check on that.

>Ah, you feel like hanging up...but you have to say something.
>You do NOT want to be fired
>Especially after a night like this.

>Then you'd actually lose your mind.
"Ahem... Remember to drink lots of water and stay hydrated!"
>You are definitely getting fired.

>You can't believe you thought this wasn't real in the first place!
>Ugh. Why did you put yourself in this position...
>You're so stupid..


>You try to fill the silence as you desperately try to come up with some way to get out of this situation.
Um, Hello Boss-kun, h-how are you doing tonight?
"Listen dumbass, get to the point, or let me go back to bed."

>Confirm that he's at his home. Ask if a mother dropped by after MC's shift looking for her daughter.
I've been up trying to help a little girl find her mom so please don't fire me!
Y-You're at home right?
"Of course I'm at fucking home! Work ended an hour ago!"
Did a m-mother drop by after my shift ended? Looking for a girl?
"...What the fuck are you talking about? Are you off your meds or something?"
"Just what the hell have you gotten yourself into?"
W-well sir, I went to the gym after work and found a lost girl, so now I'm trying to get her home.
>Silence reigns for a second after you say this.

"...Man, you always surprise me. In the worst ways possible."
"Good luck with the new kid, and no, if you're wondering, you aren't getting a raise because you've got a kid now"
Wait, it's not-
"Goodnight. Please don't call me again unless it's something actually important."
>He hangs up.
>...You don't feel good
>but at least you weren't fired.
Off into the dark and scary night!

Your neglect allowed me to shatter her ears

Your expectations allowed me to hide the truth


Your guilt allows me to loosen her neck

And after everything you tried to do to 'help', it was still your tendencies that allowed me to take control

Welp there you have it.
It wasn't all that good, but I hope it wasn't too terrible.

If you at least liked the art stuff check out some of my accounts.
I mostly draw a lot of weeb shit and memes so if that's your thing I'm ya man.
This the first 'serious' thing I've ever tried to create, so if you're (For some reason) looking for more stuff like this CYOA you're outta luck
AKA you'll have to wait

I think I'll be doing more CYOA's though. It was fun. The pressure of having to draw and write on the fly definitely got my blood pumpin!

Anyways, back to the CYOA
I did writeand draw multiple endings for this CYOA. That was just in case you guys did stuff I totally wasn't expecting.

Technically, it could be played again, but I doubt anyone would want to go through all this again just for a slightly different ending ( AKA 'you' go home with nothing bad happening because you saw through everything/abandoning Tomo before anything goes wrong.)
Seems like a waste of time. So I doubt I'll ever run this back.

I had a lot of fun. Thanks for not completely destroying me. I was very nervous going into this, but now I'm definitely up for doing this sorta thing again in the future.

Any feedback or comments or whatever would be greatly appreciated.
Otherwise, thanks for playing. Or just reading. Or whatever you did. It made my weekend. And I hope I at least kept you a little entertained.
See you around.
This was great! I'm a bit sad that it looks like we are holding Tomo captive in bad conditions though, maybe I shouldn't of played up the creepy there. I have to say though that your writing of the dialogue was great and conveyed emotions really. Also is there any chance we could see what the alternate endings were?
What in the world is this?
I enjoyed it!
But fuck, I guess we were the spook and poor Tomo-chan won't get to be comfy.
Wrong board
Are we the baddies?
The answer was yes.
Yes we were.
The voice telling us to start fires figured it out.
I really liked it man.
You don't have to throw the story away, you can rerun this in a near future with maybe different people playing.
I don't this that those that played now would go to spoil it if you run again.
I really liked you art during the quest, really hoping to see you more around here
I didn't expect you guys to like it that much!
Alright, then nevermind, I'll run it back in a couple weeks then!
I'll have to do some revising and draw some new stuff but I could probably get in done pretty quick
I'll also do some stuff to try and railroad you guys away from getting the same end again.
That would kinda suck if you played it just to do the same thing again right?

Well, I don't know. Maybe I won't. I hate railroading. ;)

Yeah you are(at least in this ending), some of you guys actually picked up on this way quicker than I expected and made me shit my pants. I was ten posts in or something and someone said that we were the bad guy and we were gonna molest Tomo.
I personally like ending 2 the most, and end 1 and 3 didn't have nearly as much done, so I was pissing myself trying to rewrite and draw the other ends since I thought you had figured this one out and would avoid it.

But luckily it worked out.

I really appreciate that you did! Like I said this ending is my favorite and I worked the hardest on it, but it wouldn't make any sense at all if you guys acted completely normal with no creepiness. It just wouldn't work. So I'm, at the very least, happy you played up the creep!
So thanks for your help
Thank you~

As for the alternate endings I won't say too much since I plan to run this again now. But ending 1 and 2 involve you being the 'bad guy' ending 3... well other things happen. You could call it a "good end"
Wouldn't make sense though since this was supposed to be spooky, but I wrote it just in case I gave up with the seriousness of the story half way through lel
And ending 4, I just have an outline of. I was so confident you wouldn't get to it that I never bothered making it past a rough draft, but now that you know the story I guess I'll have to work on it.
I have a lot of ideas for CYOA's ... well, 3 to be exact.
All of them are sorta spook or at least serious. Since everything I've done so far has been ...'comedy' I needed to see if I could actually make something serious.
As much as I love funni, the only stories to ever truly effect me have been serious ones. And I would love to invoke feelings like that in other people. Funny stuff just doesn't... I don't know, hit people as hard or make a lasting impact, or at least give you something to think about.
I don't know, I make memes most of the time so I don't really get it yet.

But eventually I'll get around to making those. They're all pretty short(I don't think I'd do very well in a long quest)
They'll be fun too hopefully!

Until then, keep looking out for a second thread. Or the name Gumby-chan.
Do you have a twitter or a tumblr or something easier to follow you in?
File: ...ahah...no.jpg (90 KB, 756x592)

I used to use twitter, but it really wasn't working for me.
Tumblr I haven't tried, I don't think.
Not really a big fan of Tumblr...
Deviantart is where I post about everything I'm doing and I update it pretty frequently with art and stuff. Pixiv is where I post memes and that's about it.
Sorry man. I doubt I'll ever transfer all my stuff over to any another sites. It'd take way too long and I've already found my foot hold on the sites I'm use.
Wat? I don't get the ending. What is happening? Can any anons break it down for me what is going on? What happened to Tomo? What happened to her?
The baddy possessed MC in the darkness, then wormed its way into MC's mind as we fatzed about.

By letting it happen all the way outside the gym, it took control and kidnapped Tomo for abuse and torture.

It was going to happen either way as long as we stuck around, so the best ending was MC running away alone and letting the monster infect Tomo. I'm guessing nobody was around because everyone else did the same thing, including the mom. So MC and Tomo were just the only ones too young/weak-willed to be susceptible.
So you're saying we should have just called the cops...?
I knew we needed to grab that poster.

That's a pretty sound analysis acutally,
But I will say, I think there's a way to get a better ending than just running away ;)

...Technically, yeah. But that would be a really boring ass quest.

Next time I run this quest you'll have some more freedom to do what you want though.

I just had to make sure the first one didn't end in ten posts because you called the cops and went home. That would uh
Kinda blow.
So we SHOULD have burned the gym down!
Now you're talking!
I mean you didn't have a lighter for nothing right?
