> eat lunch
You plop down on the soft ground for lunch. Suddenly, however, a Viet Cong party emerges from the thicket and rakes you with AK-47 fire.
> crawl away
You drag yourself through the elephant grass, bleeding from the multiple bullet wounds. Even as you express relief at having survived this ordeal, a giant foot drops from above and crushes you.
Hold on.....as you encounter your death, your spirit floats out of your body and suddenly collapses, and as you fall helplessly to the ground, still in your ghostly state, you sparkle and glitter, and as you hit the ground (not that you feel it, for you're a ghost), your body starts to shimmer in all sorts of colours. Confusion reigns over you and asks you what is happening. Suddenly, your body starts disappearing, and in the confusion, you black out just as your head disappears.
Sometime later, you open your eyes and find you're back in the nondescript room! Your spirit is back in your body, which remarkably has no scratches or marks from your previous encounter! Phew, you've survived another one of those untimely deaths! You give thanks to the narrator, your god, for keeping you alive and praise him for letting you restart without dying! Oh, to make sure it's the nondescript room, you'll have to look to see if the Grue's here.
Oh, never mind, you got eaten by the Grue anyway.
- *** You have died ***
