Captive’s Choice

You’ve been kidnapped and given a choice: would you rather be stranded on an island, dropped into an unknown forest, or locked in a strange building?

I dunno what kinda of scenario is this; how can I have this kind of a choice after being kidnapped, an aggressive act against my will? And that too what kind of strange choices? Stranded on an island, dropped into an unknown forest or locked in a strange building!

Well off hand I guess the forest is the most dangerous one. There could be bugs, creepy insects and reptiles and predatory animals out to get my ass. I would make a delicious large meal so maybe that should be out. Although in a forest I would be able to find water (if there’s a river near by) and fruits from trees and small animals I could kill and eat for survival! Hmmm!

Now the island part – isn’t that the baseline for a lot of stories throughout history? Being stranded on an island with no way off as you have no plane or boat and are surrounded by ocean or sea on all sides. The thought of being cutoff from society is appealing at times provided I have enough supplies to last me for as long as I could live there. And ofcourse the necessities like running water, a home, beer, vodka, pizza (on a deserved island?), internet and cable tv. That does not seem likely but yeah if I could I would pick that.

In a strange building? Is it rotting and dilapidated? Are there strange creatures in it? Is it haunted? Werewolves or zombies piled up? Why would my captures put me in a building? This one seems strange.
