You are Lennie, and you are retardee. You are tall and strong, and you have not realized how strong you are and what ability you have. You are very naive like a child. Now you are in the barn with Curley's wife. You want to feel the softness of Curley's wife's hair as she invited you to do so. The hair is too soft so you can't control your hand to let it go. You caught her by her hair tightly. She start screaming, and you got in panic. You put one hand on her neck and the other on her hair, and you twist her head. She died immediately and fall on the ground. What are you going to do, [[run away|2.run]], [[go find Gorege|3.End]] or [[stay at the barn|4.stay at the barn]].
You are running to the place where George told you to hide when you got any problems, which is next to the river on the way you come from weeds. However, because you have a short meomory, you are running to the opposite direction. You hear something rustling. What are you going to do?
[[get away from the origin of the noise|Keep going]] or [[find the source of the noise|End 1]]
You are in a real panic. You go out to find George and tell him what happened, and claim that you didn't mean to do it. George followed you to the barn and see corpses. He didn't say anything, and go back to the bunk and start packing. You don't understand why, but you packed your own stuff, too, and you run away with him. George take you to a place that is far away from the barn. You worked with him there, and finally you and George get all the money that you need to tend rabbits and buy a new house.
You live with George happily ever after in your new house.
You sit beside Curley's wife's dead body, until Curley went in. Curley got very angry and now he is running toward you. There is a spade next to you lying on the ground. What are you going to do?
[[Use spade to protect yourself|Curley]] or [[Use your fists to smack his face|Curley 2]]
You stand up and walk to the opposite direction of where that noise comes from along the river. You are still hoping and waiting for Georage to find you. However, George never shows up. You keep walking, and at night you sleep on the rocks and muds. You eat woods and grass and maybe fish for a few months. One night as you are going to fall asleep, you recall the memory before in the ranch of Crooks telling you that a nice fella like George will eventually abandon you, and you think that this situation has proved that. George is not coming back for you. He has abandoned you completely. You cryed for a long time, and finally you decided to do something else.
What are you going to do?
[[Find George|End 1]] or [[Go and find a cave to live|Cave]]
You walk with your head down. Suddenly, something makes you stop. You thought it was George so You rise up your head. However, you see Curley and other men riding on the horse and holding lugers pointing straight at you. You are captured and forced to go back to the barn. You tortured by Curley violently. You still don't understand why these man are doing this to you.
After 271 hours, you close your eyes painfuly. Your guts and blood are everywhere. You die miserably.
You found a nice little cave hiden behind weeds, and you hear some heavy breaths in the cave. What are you going to do?
[[go into the cave|END 2]] or [[go and find another cave|FIND ANOTHER CAVE]].
You go into the cave, and see a bear. You like the bear's fur very much, and you want to touch it. You touch the bear and hug it hardly. It snores but doesn't move. You decide that you are going to tend the bear and live with it. The bear is strong enough to endure your strength, and it can't be easily killed. It is a perfect pet for you.
You lived with the bear happily ever after.
You didn't find another cave but a small town instead. The town is like a big ranch, everybody is doing their job, just like the ranch before. You see a big wagon where people are loading hays on it.
You remember the days back in the ranch, and you fell like you should do something, so you walk directly toward the wagon, and start doing what you usually do before. The boss of that ranch saw you and asked you to work for him, because of the strength you showed (but you don't realized that of course, you are just happy to have a place to live). The boss give you a job to feed the horses in the barn. You followed the boss to a barn and see a girl who wears a red velvet dress, and at the same time, you also see a lot of rabbits beside her sleeping on the ground.
You love soft furry things very much, and you really want to touch the girl's dress as well as petting the rabbits. What are you going to do?
[[Go and feel the girl's dress|Dress]] or [[Go and pet the rabbit|Rabbit]]
You walk close to the girl and grab her dress from the bottom. The fabric is really soft and you feel like you are in heaven. The girl start shouting and slap you in your face. You don't want to let the dress go and the girl keep stuggling, so eventually you ripped the dress. The girl shocked and quiet at first, than she realized what has just happened. She start screaming and crying again.
You don't know what is going on, and the noise that girl is make makes you feel very uncomfortable.
What are you going to do?
[[Stand there feeling the dress staring at the girl|End 4]] or [[Make her stop crying and screaming|crying]].
You start petting and squeezing the rabbits.
However, becuase you are too strong, you are actually choking them. Blood, flesh, bones, and guts mixed together and spread everywhere. You thought it was intersting so you smiled joyfully. Like that you killed all the rabbits. The young woman start screaming and is running around in every direction crazily.
What are you going to do?
[[stay where you are and keep squeezing the rabits dead bodies|End 4]] or [[run away|End 7]].
The boss heared the noise and came to the barn. He is shocked of what he sees in the barn. Then, he become very angry. He is so angry that from the sound of his breathing, it feels like he is going to explode at anytime. You stand there confused. You don't know why the boss is so angry; all you want to do is to feel the softness! He arrested you and made you a slave. You worked for the boss for the rest of your life.
You run away from the small town want to find a cave, but you never found one. You lost in direction and eventually, you starve to death.
The girl's crying is really annoying and disturibing you. You want to make this girl stop crying, so you hold the piece of dress more tightly and drag her to you. Suddenly, the dress ripped from the middle! The cloth is still hang over her body but it certanly can't wear anymore. The girl scearming more loudly. The boss heard the noise and come in the barn. He sees his daughter's dress is broken, and he is really really angry. You can see his face slowly turning in to read. You don't know why the way the boss looked at you like he is going to eat you alive, but you think you have done something wrong.
What are you going to do?
[[Try to explain something to the boss|End 6]] or [[Say nothing and just stand there|End 5]]
The boss see you standing there without explain anything, so he become more and more angry. He thinks that you are doing this on purpose to insult him and his daughter. He yelled for other men to come, and they catch you and strapped you onto a chair in a dark little smelly house. You got tortured by the boss and other people in the ranch, and dead painfully without knowing the reason.
You are stabbing Curley on his body. Blood splashed from every spot that you stabbed. Blood spurted all over your face and flow down drop by drop on the ground. Curley scream loudly and struggling at first, but then the noise and movements slows down. After a while, he stopped moving completely. His eyes were wide open looking up. One of his eyes is smashed in to the bones. Here you are, siting in the "lake" filled with blood. You are staring at the blood. After 30 minutes or so, you suddenly realized that you did some thing awful, but you don't know exactly what is wrong. [[you run out to find George|3.End]].
You punch him in the face, he fall on the ground. You keep smacking him crazily. Blood splashing in all the direction even on your face. As soon as you realized, Curley stopped struggling. Clearly you have killed Curley. You stopped, and keep panting. Your mind has gone completely white, you don't know what are you doing.
What are you going to do? [[Go and find George|3.End]]
You standing there wondering what has you done wrong. You don't know what to say so you keep stroking the girl's dress. Luckily, the boss haven't gone totally mad and he noticed your little movements. He ask you, "you don't want to do nothing, right?" You nodd. "What is your problem with the dress?" he asked. "I...it...it's soft, so soft...and...good" you murmured, not really sure what he is asking. He sighed, "that's why you touch my daughter's dress, isn't it. Fine, I won't do nothing this time, but you dare do it again." "Okay," you answered don't know what he is talking about, "I won't do it no more." "Good, good. But you have to work here with me until you got the money to buy my girl another nice dress," the boss odered. "okay...Okay."
You worked there for another few months, and during that time surprisly you fall in love with the boss's daughter, who think your stupidness is actually very cute. You married her and lived in the ranch for the rest of your life.
