The Order

(Translated from Japanese by Saya)

Another cryptic story! 

Three friends - A,B and C - were  kidnapped by a psychopath.

The psychopath said to them,
"Decide among yourselves who will give me a right arm and a left arm.
Otherwise I'll kill you all."

A "What!? There's no way I'll do such a thing. You guys do it."
B "OK....then I'll cut off the right arm."
C "Then I'll cut off the left arm."

The two of them were able to survive.

Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy!!! :D

B and C cut off both of A's arms!

Poor A :(((

Hi Saya, glad to see you so active.

I found this one morbidly funny. "A" just had to say, "You guys do it." So his/her friends obliged, each cutting one arm off A. I guess "A" died of blood loss?

Gabriel said...

You know how the saying goes - with friends like these...! :D
This one was quite straightforward, simple but very good! I think Jessica got it right. That's what A gets for trying to take the easy way out. Really makes you wonder if that wasn't the objective of the psychopath from the beginning...

(Also I wouldn't say I'm that good at resolving the cryptic stories, I just like riddles and sometimes I can guess it correctly xD but thanks a bunch for the compliment! [at the previous post])

Anyway, thanks a lot for the story! Take care ^^

I would have to say poor A as well:(

There are two possibilities.

It's possible that B and C both cut off one of A's arms, as the other readers suggested. This is the "not so different, after all" scenario.

It's also possible that B and C each cut off one of their own arms without doing any harm to A, but the psychopath killed A anyway because A didn't give him anything. After all, he never promised he wouldn't kill anyone, he just said he would kill all of them if they failed to carry out his instructions. This is the "bittersweet ending" scenario.

Both possibilities are terrible, haha!

Spectra said...

B and C are quite smart, haha
This one was nice ;v;

Calvin Taylor said...

What if the psychopath, being a psychopath, decided to spare A and kill B and C instead, and the two persons mentioned to have survived in the end are actually A and the psychopath himself? :3

Keep the comments rolling in, guys! Don't be shy to appreciate the posts, it only motivates Lady Saya to post a lot more of such quality content~

Ouch! Did B & C cut off A's arm?? *i wrote this comment without seeing the comments made before me

Hi, everyone! Thank you for posting your comments! I appreciate them very much! :D

@Jessica Vitug Oui, Mademoiselle! I think you are right!

@Shishou Goodness gracious. I thought you said that to me! XD

@Mela Putri Don't cry! A is going to heaven!

@Dethyl Thank you dear. Nowadays I get up around 5 or 6 go to bed before 12 at the latest. I think regulating my sleep cycle like this has helped me to become active in all things in life! :D

I too think A died of blood loss!

@Gabriel When I read stories like this I become careful about choosing friends! XD

Oh, that's true! Everyone has been sorry about A, but he's the one who didn't want to sacrifice himself for others in the first place - but still, did he deserve such a treatment? But yes, maybe the objective of the psychopath was really to kill A, because he knew A would behave in this way! That's an interesting theory! Thank you!

I'm no good at solving riddles so I admire your talent! XD

@George VanMeter Oh no! Don't cry dear. I just imagined a red panda crying and it brings tears to my eyes...*sobs*

@Diogo Oh! What a dark imagination you have! I think you would be very good at writing scary stories!! XD

@Spectra Thank you dear. I'm glad you enjoyed the story! :D

@Sir Calvin Taylor Never in my wildest dreams had I imagined I would get a powerful spokesperson like yourself for my blog, Sir Calvin! XD

I like your theory too! You surely are a think-out-of-the-box type of person! :D

@Petzie Hello dear! Well done for arriving on an answer on your own! :D

THANK YOU AGAIN EVERYONE! I look forward to hearing from you all again in the next post! :D
