(What an interesting set of votes, but thats it for the last round! I'm going to drop the idea of write in options, too difficult to manage and takes control of the narrative away from me)
The bid krept up little by little, one person outbidding the next in small increments right up until the last hour, where the amount of money being bid exploded massively. It jumped into the hundreds, than into the thousands, until it was down to the last minute. A two anonymous bidders were neck and neck until one put in their final bid a split second before the other.
Somewhere a kind woman, bidding to save the boys life, lamented her loss as the wealthy teen rockstar, Cindy Savage jumped up to celebrate her win. The funds were transfered immediately and the people at Joeslist quickly began to pack their things and drop the kid off at the predetermined meeting spot.
It would be another day before the kid was led, blindfolded to the front door of a large estate. He was brought into the house and after a short discussed between Cindy and the man that brought the boy he left leaving the two alone. Cindy looked the small kid over with a smile before pulling off his blindfold.
The bot would find himself in a large living room in front of a massive black leather couch, a finely made coffee table between him and the girl. To the left was a fully stocked bar and behind him a massive flat screen tv. The boy blinked a few times as his eyes came into focus.
As they did his stunning blue eyes went wide as he recognized the girl sitting in front of him. The world famous rocker gal, Cindy Savage. Famous for her intense vocals and brutal riffs, there was hardly a person in the world that didn't know the 16 year olds name for some reason or another.
She was dressed casually, a black t shirt and jeans with a pair of old white socks on her feet, the soles well worn and greyed. She had them on from her last show, and they certainly smelled of it. Her hair was bubblegum pink the left side shaved and the rest cut into a pixie cut.
"You recognize me don't ya?" She asked as she leaned forward towards the boy, her voice giving a faint hint of a British accent.
The boy gulped nervously, confused and frightened. He had been away from his parents for days and the last person he ever expected to see was Cindy Savage. After a moment he nodded slowly.
"Good then, now…why don't we get aquatinted?" She said with a devious smile.

(Now that we have a system for this. i plan on picking up the pace a little more and will try to add a segment around the time the poll hits ten votes. Lets see how that goes and I'll make adjustments as we keep going. By the time we finish this story I should have a good idea on how to do this in the future!)
