Choose Your Own Adventure!

You are Captain Arthur Hastings, and you are slowly falling in love with a Belgian. The feelings are embarrassing at first; you find the Belgian himself to be quite an embarrassment. But there is just something about him. Could it be his suave, continental sense of humor... his keen sense of justice... his shapely, rubenesque figure? Or is it simply his hypnotic mustache, perhaps? The passion develops in fits and starts. You don’t want to love him, you really don’t. You don’t want to follow him around, adventure after adventure. You don’t want to be his little bitch, always at his beck and call, sniping and moaning at him but loving it nonetheless. You don’t like mysteries but you are about to fall victim to the greatest mystery of them all: the mystery of the human heart! Try as you may, the Belgian has hold of you, heart and soul. You will follow him forever.

If you decide that to love somebody, you must set them free... preferably in an English village, choose

If you decide to follow the little Belgian to the ends of the earth, choose

Janet Too bad Christie isn't around to read your Adventures. She would have laughed and laughed. If you ever write a full-blown Choose your Own Adventure, I want to read it!

mark monday glad you enjoyed it!

Alexa I'm not sure if I'm amazed at how brilliant this idea is, or jealous that I didn't think about it first. Probably both! *goes and likes every single review in this adventure*

mark monday I'm happy you had fun with this! I had fun writing them. flu medication was a big part of my inspiration. I think I did about 25 or so of these reviews all in one day, and then mapped them out so that each adventure linked to and was linked from multiple other reviews. a good way to spend a sick day.
