Saied is a Z-machine interactive fiction story written with Inform 6 and is © 1998 by Robb Sherwin. It was a participant in the ChickenComp event.

In this very short story, you play as an Arabian man torn up over your ex-lover, Indihar, who cold-heartedly dumped you for another man three months ago. Yesterday, she called out of the blue and said she wants to see you again. The emotional pain paralyzed you with fear all night, but now it is time to make a decision.

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 1 of the story.
