Key: MC, FD, FF, Hypno
Description: What would have happened if Abigail had decided not to vote, and left the final attempt to eliminate the hypnotist at a tie?
Note: Early on in the final poll to decide this story, Rayne had a commanding lead. But a few days later it was neck and neck and the very real possibility started to emerge that I may be dealing with a tie! I hadn’t even considered that possibility, but as soon as I did a bunch of story ideas started to run through my mind as to how I would end it if it truly was tied. These are some of those ideas.
Rayne and Laura stood on opposite sides of the bathroom, and both looked like they were ready for a fight. Between them was the deeply hypnotized Jessy, sprawled out on the floor, completely unconscious and unaware of the scene happening around her. In the doorway stood Abigail, who was staring between the two girls, fully aware that they were waiting for her to make a decision. It was all up to her. And all she could do was sigh as she looked from Rayne to Laura and back again. “Fuck.”
“That’s not good enough!” Rayne growled in frustration. “You know as well as I do that you have to choose. Do you believe me…or her?”
“Think about it Abigail.” Laura said softly. “Rayne has been sus this entire time! Every single person that’s been hypnotized, she’s either been seen in the area or didn’t have an alibi! Every. Single. One. It has to be her!” Laura pleaded to the older woman.
“Not every one...” Rayne said, looking very suspiciously at Laura. “Eluran. She was found hypnotized in the pantry, and you were found outside.” Rayne pointed out. “And then somehow you were spared, and just happened to sleep through the sound of a two pound bag of flour falling on her head. How does that work exactly?”
