The Bachelor Thing
1. Try to find alcohol after 9.
2. Get fleeced.
3. Walk over to Pizza Hut, look across road for signs of Wander Vaal's Road. Find Wandevaath Place.
6. Avoid weird dude sitting outside his gate talking on phone.
8. End of road. Railway tracks in front of me.
9. Screw the numbering...
Call Myprerogative. Don't hear the usual "Brother". He says turn right. So I turn right. Darkness. I remember Gehan :s . "Walk four steps forward"(Click the link. Seriously.). Take three slow steps into darkness. Then jump back a few meters. Cautiously approach again, moving along wall. Where are you when you're needed, Mr. fingers?!
By now I'm wondering what the plan is. My mind races and starts throwing up all sorts of possibilities from someone throwing a sack over my head to just a tap on the shoulder. So I settle on someone throwing a water balloon at me. What? It was the sea. Water. ???
Eventually I hear snatches of someone's voice on the phone and inquire further. In between being nearly run over by a train and doing a few pretend ninja style maneuvers over the track, I cross it. The track. Just a dark path between the trees ahead, so naturally I'm a bit apprehensive about entering it. Myprerog/whack says something like "I'll send someone to collect you".
Those words were like a knife cutting through the butter of my resolve. I remember all the things people, well a person, said. And some stuff people DIDN'T say. Get visions of some weird cult looking for a human sacrifice, a bunch of pedo's on the beach, even worse, what if they have BO!? I panic. Rush off into the trees before anybody shows up, see a dim light ahead.
Eventually go upto it and am greeted by some dude sitting at a table. "Jerry?" he asks. I was pondering saying no and running like hell, but meh. I decided to just give up and go sit. I see a female sitting across the table. Oh shit. Is it DC? I pull up various memories and start reeling through, wondering whether I've pulled any chauvinist pig numbers on her recently. She grins. I'm mortified. I look for sharp objects.
A few seconds later RSZ and whacko show up. Buuuttt, my head smoothed out after a while and we got down to just... whatever it was. Except of course that I had to mix up whack and RSZ's identities. The sneaky bastards...
