i was mentally cataloguing from software games, as one does, and i stopped on what i knew to be the ps2 successor to the king's field games
i was then inside said game, the starting area was a prison cell. i exited the cell and went left and came across another cell, with an open area to the left of it. in the open area was an elephant. i think "ok, sure, whatever" and go back started running down a corridor there, but the elephant's neck extended and the head caught me, so i respawned back at my cell. then i tried running faster and turning a corner all dramatic like, but i just ended up getting flung off the course like an idiot playing mario kart. i don't know where the walls went. they were optional i guess. eventually i figured out i could loop back around through different passages and get the neck caught in a knot which would pop off the elephant's head, but the head would respawn and get me eventually anyway, so i had to constantly loop back around and do weird tricks to not die. eventually i turned a corner at an accidentally perfect angle and almost got thrown off, but instead managed to get the head stuck in a real mean knot that didn't pop it off somehow and was home free. i kept running and accidentally ran into a lady that had just reeled in a big fish. i broke her line and the fish ended up in my hands, and at the same time, like a mile back, the elephant's head popped off.
there is no escaping the elephant.
but no matter where i turned, the lady was in front of me, telling me to fuck off in japanese. the elephant did not catch up before i woke up.
