    Two Among Us

    There were ten of them. Everyone had their own tasks to do; duties they needed to fulfill in order to stay alive. While the rest scramble around the ship to complete their tasks, two among the crew were set to kill everyone. The problem? They didn’t know who they were. They needed to work together to seek out who these imposters were and execute them so they can all make it out alive.

    (Basically, the gang play a round of Among Us)

    Note: This might be confusing to those who never played Among Us. Also, I haven’t written anything in two months, so please excuse my crappy writing lol.

    The cacophony of voices irritated Alfred. He wasn’t even that fazed anymore; this always happens whenever someone reported a body or called for an emergency meeting. Most of the time everyone was screaming at each other, getting no proper discussion or agreements done at all. They always ended up skipping or sending an innocent crewmate off the ship because of their indecisiveness.

    When the timer hit thirty seconds in their current meeting, and it was obvious that everyone wasn’t on the same page, Alfred spoke up, “Guys, guys, I reported the body, so I should get to speak.”

    I think it’s Francis, Arthur declared, completely ignoring what his boyfriend just said.

    It’s not me! Don’t listen to him! Why do you always accuse me on every game?!, Francis fired back.

    You kept chasing me around the cafeteria table!

    I wanted to stick with you because I know you’re innocent! I saw you do the med-scan! Arthur, I’m literally vouching for you.

    Gilbert butted in, Francis is clear. I think I saw him do the garbage chute in the beginning.

    Thank you, Gilbert!

    They could be working together though, Arthur deduced.

    Imposters hardly vouch for each other, Francis retorted. That would only give them away!

    Unless they’re close to winning the game. There’s five of us left, and there’s still two imposters among us. I bet you two are vouching for each other in order to vote out an innocent crewmate right before time runs out, Arthur said.

    Alfred looked down at the timer and instantly face palmed. There was two seconds left and once he looked back at the list of cremates, Gilbert and Francis had already casted their vote, indicated by the little voting icon next to their characters. The rest of them didn’t have a chance to click skip because the timer reached zero, and it was revealed that Gilbert and Francis had voted for Arthur.

    What?! Arthur screeched as their screen changed. It played the ejection animation, with Arthur’s green character floating to space and the words Arthur was not An Imposter appearing behind him.

    The screen blacked out and displayed ‘defeat’ in red and bold letters, causing Francis and Gilbert to holler and laugh.
