The Giraffe starts to run faster.
You and your sister are slightly surprised by the change in speed and are unsure of what to do.
Someone has to do something though.
It might as well be you!
You drop the key.
And throw your arms into the air.
AROL has protected you and saved your skin, you forgot how many times already.
Time for you to protect her for a change.
You leap into the air and throw your arms around the giraffe's long neck, squeezing as hard as you can in an attempt to choke him.
AROL jumps in to help you!
The giraffe staggers back, flailing his arms about and gasping for air.
But his struggle is fruitless.
He begins to black out.
The giraffe now lies on the floor.
Not dead, only unconscious.
You still feel bad for him though. "Kate: Yeesh... We should go before he wakes up. We still have to find that stupid key the bird was talking about."
You pick the key up off the floor and show it to everyone.
You're fairly sure this is the key you were looking for. "Kate: Hey, where did you find that- Wait, what happened to your arm?!"
AROL begins yelling at you, demanding to know how you received your injury.
Even if you could talk right now, it wouldn't do you any good.
You've completely forgotten how you got it!
To be honest, for a moment you forgot your arm was bleeding at all.
AROL rages for a couple minutes and calms down when she remembers you can't speak at the moment.
AROL takes the key from you and starts walking down the hall and towards the stairs.
The group follows her. "Kate: Forget it, we'll get your arm patched up later. Right now we should just go back to the bird and not hang around the giraffe."
You pass by lots of doors, but you stop walking when one in particular catches your eye.
That's super fantastic Solaris, thanks a bunch!
(Especially because I can't actually update the mirror myself.)
Anyway, I'm glad you've enjoyed it!

This adventure is great and awesome and beautiful so +1 reader.
Dang! Did you read it all in one sitting?
I don't know if I should feel really happy or guilty that I'm responsible for procrastination on school work.
But, either way, glad you like it!
And thank you SNeakyRobot for pointing out that the walls are indestructible.
And I just noticed, you've been reading since this adventure was literally brand new, which was ages ago.
Seriously, I remember you posting way back when Mark was nameless.
So I guess, thanks for sticking around so long.
Also, just a reminder to everyone, I have a personal tumblr that I post on regularly.
Any extra artwork for New Kid that I don't post on here, goes there.
As well as other things concerning New Kid.
