the Driver begins to nod off again. she's been drowsy since... before she can remember. she needs to stay awake.

A: keep talking to the Hitchhiker. conversation should rouse her.
B: turn up the radio. Night City is playing. some kind of late night DJ with a flair for the dramatic.
C: check around the car. she remembers she likes to drink coffee. or she liked to? maybe she has a bottle or a can of something laying around to perk her up.
D: something else. anything to keep herself alert until she gets... wherever she's supposed to be going.

>A: keep talking to the Hitchhiker. conversation should rouse her.

one trick is to help stay awake is to sing along with a radio song to help you focus on something to stay awake, but having someone to engage with in a conversation will be more mentally stimulating and should help you stay awake a bit longer so go do that.

the Driver begins to remember. traces of memories come back to her, like a dream.

A: "...I've been sober for about a week now, and the cravings have gotten out of hand."
B: "...things at my house have gotten weird. I needed to get away from my parents for a while."
C: "...I've been having some issues with... God. or whatever I believe in."

C: They have just been the worst roommate. Bringing in rowdy prayer groups at all hours, playing their televangelists too loud, Putting their little symbols all over the shared stuff, Badgering you that all your food has to be blessed, the fridge is always stuffed with fishes and loaves so there is no room for anything edible, and as a dedicated teetotaller you DO NOT appreciate that all the water turns into wine as soon as it enters the room. You don't even like cooking with that stuff. And they are so popular. You can't complain about anything without being shouted down, they just don't understand when you try to explain that it might actually be difficult to get help with something, and everyone is either hassling you for every tiny detail, or just ignoring you while hanging round constantly, or, ugh, the jealous types are full-on scary sometimes! Sure, you still like the faith and all, but you just... really need a break...

A: the Driver keeps going ahead. somehow, even though the thought terrifies her, she knows she will end up on the bridge eventually anyway.
B: the Drive takes the exit. she has to get off this road. anywhere else would be preferable.
C: the driver chooses to do something else. she knows either road is going to lead to a bad outcome. perhaps she can find a third option this time?

the Driver's adrenaline spikes as the full extent of the situation is beginning to dawn on her. she swallows her fear and continues forward.

A: the Driver turns on the radio. she needs something to distract her desperately.
B: the Driver digs around the car for something to keep her occupied. perhaps a lighter or something to fidget with while she drives.
C: the Driver continues to talk with the hitchhiker, although speaking with them is beginning to give her a similarly eerie feeling.
D: something else. she's got about 30 minutes until she's in the city. she needs to calm her nerves until then, or she thinks she's going to have a panic attack.

the Driver steps out of the car hesitantly. she smells blood and rot in the air around her, and hears a distant howling... it sounds like a person...

she looks at the road ahead of her. it's blocked with rubble and abandoned cars as far as she can see. she is going to have to keep going on foot. keep going where? she doesn't know. she just knows that she will have to keep going or else she'll fall asleep. before she goes, she decides to search her car. something in the vehicle must be useful.

where should she look? currently, she can only carry what she can hold in her hands.

one of the things to carry is the cross hanging on the rear-view mirror. Wear it on your wrist like a bracelet, or if it is big enough, around your neck like a necklace.

the Driver finds a Jacket with large inside pockets. the look and smell of it makes her feel... something. she's not sure what... a sad kind of nostalgia, she guesses. though she's unsure as to what she could be nostalgic for.

she knows she needs to move on. what items should she take with her? she can carry two items in her jacket and a third she can carry. she also needs to figure out where she's even supposed to be going.

A. keep following the road. it's a highway so it probably leads out of the town on the other side.
B. follow the road signs to the center of town. the Driver can't just expect to hike the whole way, maybe she can find some provisions in the town center.
C. the radio tower looks like it's still broadcasting. maybe there's someone manning it.
D. somewhere else. the Driver is totally lost in this city. any direction is as good as an other until she can find some kind of landmark to orient herself.

~big iron on her hiiiiiiiiip~

But yeah, grab everything you can although when it comes to the gun I'd say check if it has ammo and see if you have a conceal and carry license on you somewhere (like your wallet) because if not then yeah you might want to leave the gun behind. Cops catch you with that with it being out of a carrying case or without a license then you're going to be finding yourself up shit's creek without a paddle and a hole in your boat.

As you gave me confirmation that the rosary is a free item. Leave the gun behind, if something comes at you, you can run, which is better than accidentally shooting someone. Grab the wafers for a snack, and the medication so you can take it as directed.

No. 950135 ID: ad51b8

...Well on the bright side, I'd say you're fully awake at this moment so their's that.

As for what to do, get some distance, aim your gun at him, and if he approaches shoot the fucker, nick his blade since you only have five bullets, and get the hell out of the area since gun shoots tend to be loud and that might attract some unwanted attention.

the Driver sprints from the thing in a blind panic, gasping and screaming as the air burns in her lungs and her legs begin to feel weighted down and sluggish. for minutes after, her adrenaline carries her from street to street putting distance between herself and whatever that thing was.

eventually she hits a dead end. the road terminates in a 3-way intersection. this seems to be a street called Golgotha. the street sign has a second, cardboard one attached to it.

the Court of Stigmata

whatever that means, it looks like the Driver is going to need to make a choice.

A. go toward the Court. whatever it is, it would be better to face it than have it to your back.
B. go away from the Court. whatever it is, if it's anything like the rest of this city, the Driver would be safer not crossing paths with it.
No. 955087 ID: f7ff14

A. It sounds like a great idea.
No. 955088 ID: 2aa5f0

well cardboard means it's been thrown on their more recently, and whatever the hell you just met didn't seem like the type to hang up a cardboard sign, so let's go to court and hope that it will have some answers.
