New Story!

For new readers, here is how this works, I will start a story and give you, the readers, options. Then, based on your votes in the comments, I will continue the story!

You open your eyes slowly and gradually as a single beam of blinding light sits perfectly on your eyes. You blink and wince as your eyes try to adjust. You move out of the beam of light, as you try to understand your surroundings. All you see is darkness around you. The small beam of light shines in through what seems to be a crack above you. Your head aches fiercely as you try to remember where you are...or even who you are. You outstretch your hand and it almost instantly hits a hard, cold, metal wall. You jump as it makes a loud thump that echos around you. You more slowly this time, reach your hands all around you. You are in a box. Hardly enough space to lay down. The ground is covered in what feels like rough straw. A million things race through your mind as you try to figure out what to do. You slowly stand up to see if you can look through the crack shining with light. All of a sudden you start to hear low whispers and grumbles. And the light disappears as if something is blocking it.

What do you do?

1. You scream and start to tell for help! You don't care who is outside your box, you need help!

2. You back against the wall of your box and hold your breath so as not to make a noise.

3. You decide to try with all your night to kick the metal wall. Your only hope is that it is made of a thinner sheet metal.

Taking Bronston Down.

          You and Ginga talk and decide for another half hour or so trying to pick the perfect course. Finally it is decided, you need to confront Bronston right now, you cannot let this go any further! You grab Ginga's hand and lead her down the dark hallway. You find the steps and ever so carefully you creep up them. You come to the large metal door and put your ear against it. You hear nothing. You slowly creak the door open and walk through the darkened ship.
           You come to Attons quarters. His door is shut! Fearing making too much noise you tell Ginga to open the door while you stand and watch for Bronston. As you stand there you cringe at every slight noise and creak you hear Ginga making. You hear her whispering and within 5 minutes a surprisingly awake Atton walks out behind her.
             "Did she explain to you what is happening?" you whisper.
             He nods. You all begin slowly creeping up the the door of Bronston's quarters.
             "Ginga, quick, get the handheld and be prepared to begin calling to Globalcon so we can expose this spy right away!" you whisper quietly.
              She nods yes and takes the handheld you are holding out to her. You are now at Bronston's door. You feel your heart beating throughout your whole body. You ever so gently put your eat up the the door. It's at that time you realize a small crack in the door. You peak inside and see a small tint lightsource. You see Bronston's large figure sitting in front of it. It is then that you begin to hear talking. Some Bronston's, and some from another. You squint to see clearer. He is on call with someone! You try and make out what is being said.
           "...everything is going as planned...."
            "...ship will never be heard from again.."
            "...agreed on the end of the mission..."
            You know that he is talking to the culprit of his mission, his supervisor. You motion to Ginga to get out the mini camera to take evidence. You squint harder at the screen. You see the have seen this face before...but where....
Your eyes get wide and your face goes white.
"What??" They both say behind you. "who is it?"
"Put down the handheld Ginga..." You say quietly. "It's Globalcon."

What do you do now?

1. Knowing this is Globalcon's mission and missing ship, you decide it would be ridiculous to follow this mission any longer. It will only end badly. You decide to fake some reason to land on a nearby planet and all three of you runaway.

2. You decide as originally planned. You wait for Bronston to get off his call and take him down and worry about Globalcon later. You can't let those innocent people die!

3. You decide to abort the plan to take down Bronston, knowing that surely Globalcon will find out. So you decide to play along with Bronston's mission until you can figure out a way to outsmart him.

You Believe Ginga....

     You take a long look into Ginga's eyes and pace around the hall.  She watches you tearfully.
     "Arn't you going to say anything?" She finally asks.
     You stop and turn to face her.  "I believe you." you say quietly.
     She breathes a deep breath of relief.
     You turn to the locking console on the cell.  It consists of a keypad and a larger electronic pad to place your hand.  You input your commanders code and place your hand for the scanner to release the door.  A little beep sounds with a little red light.  You try again.  Same outcome.  
     "What did he do?  He can't override my code!" You say as you repeatedly keep trying.
      "Wait!" said Ginga excitedly, "Maybe...maybe I can hack it. But I will need your code too."
       You raise an eyebrow.  "Go for it!"
       She stretches her arms out of the bars and begins working.
       You sit on the ground still taking in the information. You go over all the scenarios in your head.  Ginga quietly tinkers and pushes buttons repeatedly, everyonce in a while letting out a frustrated sigh.
       Finally you hear a beep, a different beep!  "Yes you got it!" You say loudly as you jump to your feet.
       Ginga is frozen. "I havn't done anything...."
       At that moment you hear footsteps.  Oh no!  It must be Bronston checking on Ginga!  You rush around in the darkness to find a place to hide.  You find a place behind some storage bins and you squat down where you can barely peek between the two crates at Ginga.  She darts back to the back of her cell and returns in the position you remember finding her in.  The heavy footsteps come closer and closer.  With nothing but a single faded light you see nothing but moving shadows to accompany the steps.  Finally you see Bronston as he stops in front of Ginga's cell.  
          "You can't get away with this you know" You hear Gingas voice ring out with a surprising amount of courage.  
         "Haha! But I already have my dear. Who is going to believe you over me? I already convinced one of your own friends you were a spy.  You have no hope.  Keep it down down here.  Don't want anyone getting suspicious.  hahah....."  He said as he began to walk back up the stairs.  
         "Eww I hate him!" Ginga said with a snarl as soon as the door closed.  
         Now assured of your decision you feel very relieved.  " Let's get you out of there"
         You two spend the next hour hacking the system and you manage to help her get out.  Once out you start to make a plan........

What Is Your Plan?

1.   Elaborate.  Ginga goes back in her cell and you pretend nothing is wrong.  You somehow tell Atton what is going on, and you two somehow sabotage the ship so you will be forced to land on a nearby planet.  Once on the planet, you will notify the authorities or maybe even leave Bronston there and take off.

2.   Immediate.  You decide to not waste any time and take Ginga, wake up Atton and take down Bronston right now.  See how he likes being thrown into the cell.

3.   Long.  Since at the moment you have no proof.  Your plan is to befriend Bronston trying to catch him at a moment where you could get the evidence Ginga failed to get and if and when you get it, you send it electronically to Globalcon.

You Decide to Listen to Ginga....

Thanks for all the response!  I would like to give a quick special thanks to RJ,   Derpflies,  Infostation,  Kmartsmartsuperstar, and anontcotrol for helping pick today's storyline! :) Thanks!  

      You grab Ginga's hand through the bars.
      "Ginga, listen to me, I have known you since we were kids, but I am still the commander of this ship and team.  I have to be sure.  Start from the beginning and tell me everything."
       Ginga, as if somehow comforted to have someone who would listen, sits down on the floor of her cell, pulling your hand down forcing you to sit down as well on the other side.
        She takes a deep breath and begins..
        "Okay...I had my doubts about Bronston, I won't lie, my gut feeling was about him.  So when he walked out once we landed, I rushed into his quarters and found his personal computer.  And I...." She glances as the floor in shame. "I kind of...well I hacked into it.  There is just no better way to say it.  But! With good reason!  "She continues before even giving you a chance to chime in. "But!  I thought he was clean until I found correspondence messages.  They were talking about us!  About the labship, and the mission and US! Each one of us! "
       "What do you mean?"
        "Listen to me, HE IS A SPY.  And that's not all.  This is serious, we need to find help.  The messages were talking about the lapship first...and how..." Ginga began to cry.  "And how, they were meant to be lost!  Never meant to be rescued!  It didn't saw why.  And they were giving orders to Bronston on how to lead us in the wrong direction!  Apparently his mission was to get us lost and then before questions were asked he would have to kill himself, I am not sure how.  Then, I heard Bronston coming back into the ship so I ran out back into the brig and he didn't seem to notice.  But I didn't have proof!  So I took my mini cam and snuk back in while he had went to get some food....and that's when I saw that he had just sent out a message that said "I am very angry you would assume to waste my talent in such a way.  If it is witnesses you are worried about, I will use the 'gift' to quiet them instead." That's when Bronston came in and saw me!  He immediately grabbed me and threw me down here!"
        You mind is shocked.  So much information and you don't know what to believe.  Her story makes sense....that vile!  With the note.."when the time comes", it was for his suicide!  That would explain why he got so angry and threw the package down!  But....what if Ginga is actually the spy?  Bronston gave you a pretty convincing story...and he said Ginga could get you to believe anything....

What Do You Do Now?

Who Do YOU believe?

Ginga?  The person that you have known since childhood?

Bronston?  Hand picked from Globalcon, and he warned you Ginga was a good liar.

Confronting Bronston...

 Okay so today, I am going to do something different, when the story ends with a decision needing to be made, instead of having options, I am going to leave it completely up to the commenter's on what needs to happen!  You can come up completely with your own, or if you see another commenter's idea that you like, you can agree with theirs, here we go! 

             You pace around your room all the while looking back at Petrys body.  You take a deep breath and burst through your door.  At that moment you feel the ship jerk and begin to move.  You are already taking off!  You run to the pilots area expecting to see Ginga at her station.  
             "Ginga! I.." you begin.  
             The tall black chair wheels around to reveal no Ginga, but Bronston!  Taken aback you just stare.  
              "Wher...where is Ginga?" you ask while taking a step back.
Bronston stands up. 
             "We need to talk." He begins to walk to the kitchen. You follow.  He sits down at the table and motions for you to sit down also.  You look around and slowly sit down.  He begins immediately.
              "Ginga was a spy.  She was hired from an unknown source to purposely delay our rescue mission. Possibly even kill us."
You stare with eyes wide.  
              "But I have known Ginga since..."
              "I know.  Globalcon did an extensive background check also, we didn't know."
            You are so confused, should you believe him?  You decide to come clean about everyone.  You HAVE to know the truth.
             "I...I saw you the alley.  I got the package you dropped. I saw the contents. and....Petry is gone because of those contents. He told me Ginga was in danger.  Now what is going on?!" Your voice raises.
             Bronston shifts in his chair.
             "That is how I found out about Ginga.  I saw on her personal computer she had made quick plans to meet with someone.  In fact she was suppose to meet with him because he was going to pose as a worker when she wanted someone to come refuel us.  I made her stay with the ship and I went to meet the man she was suppose to.  I told him she sent me and he told me what the company wanted her to do.  He gave me the package and upon learning what she was going to do, I threw it down.  I am sorry about Petry. As far as what he said, Ginga probably programmed that in case it got stolen. "  
           You sit back in your seat.
           "Where is she?" you finally ask.
           "I have her locked in the emergency lockdown quarters."
           "I am going to speak to her."
           Bronston immediately gets up.
            "No, you cannot do that.  She is trained.  She can get you to believe anything she wants. "
            Surprised at his insistence you agree that you will not.
           "Bring me what was in the package in the morning." he says as he walks out of the room.
            That doesn't actually stop you however.  You wait until all the lights are off in the private chambers and make your way down to the lockdown area.  You go down a flight of stairs to get there and its pitch black.  You see a tiny light from an almost burnt out bulb at the end of the hall in front of the cell.  You walk down quietly and see Ginga sitting on the floor with her knees into her forehead and arms tightly wrapped around her knees. 
            "Ginga..." you whisper.  
           She instantly looks up and quickly crawls to the door. 
            "Help me!!" She says quietly but wanting to scream. "Bronston is crazy!  He is a spy!  I got suspicious and he caught me trying to go through his personal computer!  He is going to kill us all!"

What Do You Do Now?

It's all up to you!
