What would you have done in Haatim's place?

Post by micoleon13 » 04 Apr 2017, 19:48

If you were to find yourself in Haatim's shoes and suddenly thrown in to the world of supernatural, would you go with Abigail to Ravens Peak, or would you get out while you had the chance to?

It is a difficult question!
I almost started typing: "Yes, of course, I would run towards adventures and supernatural things to learn more..." But then I thought, stop, I'm responsible not for myself only, I have a family. What if those demons kill me or worse, possess? :shock:
So I would run of, what a shame! :(

I think I will go with her as I would want to find out more about it. Also, I won't feel comfortable leaving her to her fate.

I think I would go with her, mainly for the cowardly reason of she would be able to help teach how to defend yourself and how to identify the supernatural

I would probably have to go, but only because I would be afraid of spending the rest of my life looking over my shoulder. Then again, it's an impossible situation so I don't really know.

I would definitely run. I think things like he saw would freak me out!

Haha, I know right. Imagine finding all of that stuff out over the course of like two days. I would probably be comatose!

I agree with you, micoleon13. I would go with Abigail in order to learn how to defend myself and identify anything that may be supernatural. However, I think I would be more scared than Haatim seemed to have been the entire time with her!

In a real situation, I will run while there is still time. I am not that courageous to see what is going on in a very strange situation with all the demons and super powers around me.

This is a great question. It is difficult to predict how we will react to a certain situation. I believe that if I had encountered being attacked in the same manner that Haatim was, I would likely want to stick close to the person who helped me survive. Near-death experiences are traumatic enough much less under supernatural circumstances.

Actually in the REAL world, there probably would have been no Abigail to save me. So, I wouldn't go because I would be dead.

Haha, well hopefully if something like this ever happens there will be someone to keep you alive! We all deserve to be the heroes of our own lives, not extras!

I would be exactly the same! I'd want to make sure I knew everything what was going on to see if it would be safe to back out and go home, or just go along with her. I'd be a bit more demanding than Haatim and I'd start asking for answers a lot earlier... whether I'd get them is another story.

Hahaha! I agree with you! I'm trying to live a long, stress-free life. So I wouldn't have gone either.
