Competition’s Registration Form.
Question 78: Why are you participating? Answer in 100 characters or less.
“The game is but a game if it’s played right. I play majestically. I play to win.”
Player number 1244.
My ex-lover Kendrick is dead. He was the Competition’s winner three and two years back. He warned me something was going on about the game, about the winners. He documented four murders-before his. That one I added to the wee killer’s stats myself. Plus, I can’t track down two additional winners, so I’ve declared them missing in action.
Too many rules. Too many players, referees, groupies. I’ve never been one to play for the team, but I’ll make an exception. For him. Not because I was in love with him, not anymore, but because I gave my word. Thankfully, I’ve learned to keep my mouth shut since then.
My plan is simple. Survive the sets. Stay low. Win the Competition. Bait Kendrick’s killer. Simple plan, right?
Is there nobility in the game? No.
Am I trying to prove something to the world? To myself? Resounding Nos.
I’m not having fun. At all. So it’s not about that either.
Am I seeking revenge? Again, a no. I didn’t love him that much.
I merely want to understand. He left me for it, after all. Besides, it’s not like I have anything else better to do. Until I die, at least.
