He woke up in an instant. He stood up quickly examining the room around him. I watched him as he began to panic, unaware of where he was.

“Where am I?” he yelled out.

“Agent Carter Redmond, you will now play the judgement game” the robotic voice echoed throughout the room.

He ran towards the door in attempt to open it but the door was sealed shut. I watched as he struggled to turn the doorknob but to his dismay it was locked.

 “The judgement game will now commence. Agent Carter Redmond, you have failed to fulfil your mission for this country. You have two options. The first option is that if you save them you must die. The second option is that if you choose to live you must watch them all die. What is your decision?” the voice spoke.

“I promise I won’t tell them about what the organisation is planning. They were just witnesses; they don't need to die!” he yelled out in attempt to reason with the voice. 

“You have two options. The first option is that if you save them you must die. The second option is that if you choose to live you must watch them all die. What is your decision?”

“I know I failed to properly detain them and execute them, I didn't know I would grow so attached to them. I was weak I admit it! Please, I need more time!” he cried out.

“If you cannot respond with an answer before the time limit expires an option will be randomly selected.”

“My mother is the director of this organisation! You can’t get away with this!” he yelled out.

He turned to stare at the door in disbelief as tears began to form in his eyes.

“You have approximately twenty seconds to make your decision, if you cannot respond with an answer before the time limit expires an option will be randomly selected.”

“If mother finds out what you've done to me she won’t rest until she has your head on a stick! Do you hear me?!” he cried out in anger but traces of fear echoed off his voice.

As he began to run around the room banging on the walls and screaming I watched him with elation.

“An option has now been selected. Thank you for playing” the voice spoke.

His eyes widened in fear as the walls began to move, closing in on him.

As the walls began to slowly draw together he dropped to the floor in defeat as tears began to stream down his cheeks.

As I opened the door I stood at the entrance and watched as his face instantly paled in disbelief.

“Mother” he whispered in shock.

A faint smile formed on my lips as I watched him stand up and attempt to run towards the door and extend his arm towards me but in that instant the walls began to pulverise him. The sounds of his bones beginning to crush echoed throughout the room.
