The 23rd Interactive Story Event 📖 ✍

Welcome to the Interactive Story Event!


It will start at around 2020-10-03T18:00:00Z
Everyone can join whenever they want! :smiley_cat:
If you want to be tagged for every poll, please join the @StoryEvent group!


What is it?

It’s like a mix of Episode and Wattpad. I’ve written a few short stories but there are decisions that YOU can make to change the plot!


How does this work?

I’ll post a part of the story. Then there’ll be a question and a poll. Depending on how important the question is, I’ll wait longer so some people can vote. Then I’ll post the next part according to what you choose. The first 1-2 questions will decide the genre of the story. Sometimes there’ll be a question to choose the gender of the Ll, but that question will be really obvious. Some questions make the story longer, others make it shorter. Depending on how fast we get some votes, the event can take up to 2 days


You can discuss the story, talk about the plot or what choice would be the best on this thread, but please don’t spam it. I’ll just post the next part of the story as a separate reply.

This is how it will look when I post a new part of the story

This is how it will look when I want to say something that isn’t part of the story.

I only deleted the choices that will lead you directly to an ending that you’ve already had.


Some extra information if you're interested

I’ve prepared a few different endings and I don’t want them to be for nothing, so you might get some stories that are similar but have different endings. Don’t worry, I’m working on new stories so it doesn’t get boring!
I tried to write stories in different genres, but it’s a first for me in most of the genres because I’ve only written Drama and Romance until now :sweat_smile: Additionally, I’ve written most of it while watching TV or late at night, so there might be some mistakes in it…sorryy but I’ve proofread it a few times and let friends read it so I hope it’s at least understandable what I wanted to say even if there are mistakes :joy:
I’ll make some polls at the end to find out how much y’all liked the story and if I should keep making this.


Have fun!

It took you some time to convince your parents to let you go without them. Your best friend’s parents and your parents also had a few discussions about where you’ll stay and how long you are allowed to stay away.

Now, your older brother is driving you and your best friend to the train station. In about half an hour, you’ll be in your room at an youth hotel. Apparently, there’ll be many other teens there. Your parents told you that there’s some kind of workshop taking place right now, but you weren’t really interested.

Your best friend is a bit nervous, which you notice while walking out of the train station into the big, lively city. It’s really loud and there are many people running around. “Do you have the address of our hotel?” You take your phone out and go through your notes. After checking the address on your online map, your friend says “We can walk to the hotel, it’s just 15 minutes away.” You considered calling a taxi, but walking could also be a good idea?

You decide to walk to the hotel. On the way, you hope to see some interesting places that you can visit the following days. Your best friend is still a bit nervous, probably because of the unfamiliar amount of people running around. It reminds you a bit of ants running around in your garden when your little brother dropps his ice cream.
After a few minutes, you both get used to people running into you while shouting at their phones. You see some shops that you want to go to tomorrow and there are also a few restaurants that seem quite unusual. Maybe you’ll check them out as well.
Suddenly someone runs into you from behind you and you fall on your knees. You best friend glares at the boy who stopped right in front of you and tries to help you up. “I’m sorry, I’m in a hurry and just looked at my phone instead of keeping track of what’s in front of me” he says. You dust off your knees, then smile at the boy who’s probably around your age. “It’s fine, don’t worry, I’m not hurt.” Your best friend hands you your bag that you’ve dropped and takes a quick look at you to see if you’re really not hurt. The boy scratches his neck before apologizing again and walking away. “He was cute but a bit…I don’t know…weird?” your best friend says. You shrug it off and take your phone to find your way to the hotel.
A few minutes later, you arrive at the youth hotel. At the entrance, a man asks you for your ID. You’re not used to people not recognizing you. In the small village that you live in, everyone knows everyone and you never had to show your ID. Your friend already has her ID ready and the man lets her in. You search through your bag for your purse with your ID in it. You get a bit nervous when you can’t find it right away. The man at the entrance just smiles at you, knowing that it won’t help if he starts making you nervous. “What’s wrong?” your best friend asks while coming back to you. “I can’t find my ID.” You’re shaking a bit and your friend takes your bag to help you search for your purse. “All my money is in it” you whisper. After both of you realised that your purse is gone, your friend tries to convince the man at the entrance to let you in although you can’t prove that you are who you pretend to be. As your friend can prove who she is with her ID, he lets you both in and shows you the way to your room.
In your room, you start to unpack your stuff while trying to figure out where you’ve lost your purse. “Did you leave it in the train?” That seems to be the most obvious solution. You remember counting your money on the train and then you’ve put your purse away, but you can’t say for sure if you’ve but it back in your bag. “Whatever, it’s gone. And with it all of my money. At least I still have my phone.” “What will we do now?” your friend asks.

  • Get through your vacation with only your friend’s money.
  • Try to get your purse back right away.

You decide to go and find your purse. Your best friend understands but isn’t really happy about the way you’ll spend your first day at your vacation. You look for the closest police station on your phone and head out again. There are fewer people now, but it’s still more than you’re used to. You arrive at the police station and tell an officer what happened. As you’re not sure if you’ve lost it or someone stole it, it will be difficult to find your purse. However, while you talk to the police officer, your best friend suddenly interrupts you: “Do you remember that guy who pushed you? You dropped your bag and he could easily take it out.” The police officer nods and explains that this has happened a lot lately. People pretend to be in a rush, make others fall and grab their stuff. You describe the boy to the officer before leaving with no hope to find your purse.

Back at the hotel, there are many teens running around. They probably all take part in that workshop. You look around and see a girl from your school. She waves you over and asks if you’re also participating in the workshop. She’s not staying at the hotel because her uncle has an apartment nearby. You use your small talking skills, but your best friend takes over the conversation, knowing that you easily get bored of small talk. Just then, the girl points at another person, telling you that that’s her cousin who’s working here. She’s staying with him and wants you to get to know him. You turn in the direction she’s pointing at to get a quick look at the guy. Before you can even process what you see, your friend already whispers: “Isn’t that the guy? You know, THE guy.” You nod. It’s the guy who ran into you and who probably stole your purse. He seems to recognize you as well, turns around and runs away. Great. What will you do?

  • Follow him
  • Let him run

You decide to follow him and run after him through the hallways of the hotel. After a few turns, he opens a door and steps into his room, locking the door. You start knocking, but of course he doesn’t answer. You sit down on the floor. At some point, he’ll have to come out. People pass by, some ask of you’re waiting for someone. Yes, you are.
An hour later, an elderly man walks up to you and asks why you’re sitting in front of his room. You stand up and try to figure out what to do. Do you want to tell the man why you’re here or make up a story?

You decide to tell him the truth. As you start telling him about the guy who stole your purse and who is now hiding in his room, he starts laughing. He explains that he shares this room with his grandson and that nobody else has a key to the room. However, his grandson can’t be in this room because he’s at work. You describe the guy to him and ask him to let you have a look into the room. The elderly man nods and opens the door just a bit. You hear him greet someone before he opens the door a bit wider. There he is, the guy who stole your purse, calmly sitting on one of the beds. The elderly man explains that this is his grandson who’s staying here with him. Something seems off to you, but you’re not sure what it is.

  • The elderly man is lying
  • The guy is not the one who stole your purse
  • Nothing is wrong, look for your purse here

Clever! You remembered that you were told the guy who stole your purse works here so he can’t be staying here with his grandfather. But why would the elderly man lie about that? Does he not recognise his own grandson or does he just want to protect the guy? You tell him what you know and see him exchange an unsure look with the guy who stole your purse. “Alright, you caught us. If he gives you back your purse, you have to promise that you won’t tell the police about it!” the elderly man says and waits for your reaction. You could agree to the deal and promise not to tell the police. However, you could also just break the promise once you have your purse back. For now, it’s important that you get your purse back, so you promise not to tell anyone. The guy gets up from the bed, grabs your purse that he has hidden under a pillow and gives it to you. “I don’t make much money working here and everyone can use some extra money,” he explains. You take your purse and walk away without another word.
Now you have to decide whether you’ll tell the police about it or not. You could tell them in order to help solve this ongoing problem of stealing. But you could also just let it be, you’ve promised not to tell anybody and you’ve got your purse back now.

You break your promise and go to the police station the next day. You explain everything and they follow you to the hotel. As the hotel manager realises what’s going on, he immediately offers to looks for the names of the man who stay in that room. However, according to him, the room should be free. The police check the room and find nothing that could prove that someone was there. The elderly man and the guy must have left overnight. They clearly didn’t trust you and knew you’d go to the police right away.
The security camera at the entrance of the hotel shows the two leaving in the middle of the night. At least now, the police have good pictures of them too search for them. On your way home, you look at the latest news on your phone. There they write they caught the thieves, who apparently stole over 100 purses in two weeks. One article says that the police were able to catch them thanks to a “brave student” who reported them to the police. Looks like you made the right decisions!

THE END

Normally, at this point I ask if you liked the story, but this time I have a different question. I already had to vote on the last poll myself to get rid of the tie because only 6 people voted although there are 30 people in the group. On the first poll, 11 people voted, which isn’t that much either. So I’m wondering if you still want me to do these story events or not :sweat_smile:
This poll is anonymous, so please be honest! Do you still want to see more interactive story events?

  • Yes!
  • I don’t care.
  • No!
