you just have to put 2 choices
example:

NARRATOR:
This scene may be triggering for some readers.
Do you want to read it or skip it?
choice
“Yes, i want to read it”{
(then you can add your sensitive scene)
}
“No, i want to skip it”{
@transition fade out black in 3
NEW BACKGROUND OR NEW SCENE
(then you can continue writing as you planned)
}
If you want reading or not this scene to be an important choice, you’ll have to use hidden point system.

Here are 2 vids that can help you with point system.
Hope i helped!!!

I would do it this way:

choice (choice name)
“Yes, I want to read the scene”{

goto read_scene (or whatever label name you want here)

} “No. I would like to skip” {

goto not_reading_sene

}

label read_scene

#have your scene be here

goto after_scene

label not_reading_scene

#maybe have some narration to tell the reader the most important parts of the scene they skipped

goto after_scene

label after_scene

#rest of the story / after the scene.
