What is happening? Where am I going? A million questions floated in Charlie’s mind. Is this real? All of a sudden, there was a huge booming voice.

“Welcome! You have completed THE GAME.”

What the heck? thought Charlie. What game? Am I dead? WHAT IS GOING ON?!

Everything was still black. He couldn’t see anything. All he had heard was the deep, monotonous voice delivering a very confusing message. He tried to ponder what it could be, but he could feel himself slowly drowning in a sea of darkness.
