My friend Chris is an Army Cadet, so he's very interested in the Army in general. I had been very keen to involve him in one of my games, so I decided to challenge him. At this point I'll just mention that he was actually wearing his camo trousers and an army green polo shirt, while I was in navy blue trousers and a red t-shirt. He also has blond hair, brown eyes and is slightly younger than me.
I made a bet that whoever could escape from being tied up the fastest would win and the loser would pay the winner £5. Because we were round his house, I allowed him to go first. He rushed off to go and get some equipment, and I sat down on his bed. He came back with an assortment of things: duct tape, rope and some zip ties. 'Great', I thought, 'I just hope he doesn't know how to use that all effectively.'
"Lie down" he said, as he grappled with the rope and began to tie my feet to the bottom end of his bed, "I'm looking forward to that £5!" He started laughing as he finished tying my feet either side of the bed. He then instructed me to put my hands on the poles of the upper end of the bed, zip tying them, effectively putting me in a spread eagle position. Because of his innocence he didn't think about a gag, but that only made me smile more because I knew what was in store for him.
Although it didn't take me longer than five minutes to get out, his knots in the rope on my feet were the most difficult part - but soon I was out and it was his turn. "Alright then" he said "Let's see if I can do this in about two minutes. I said "Alright, but don't get cocky yet!" And so I repeated the process he had started with me: I tied his feet to the separate poles on the end of the bed, ensuring he had barely enough slack to move anywhere. He quickly questioned my motives as to why it was so tight, but I simply laughed and said "You'll see."
