Android Build an Interactive Story App The Rest of the Story Loading Additional Pages

New pages won't load. Error in Logcat says: E/Surface: getSlotFromBufferLocked: unknown buffer: 0xaa06d6e0

Hey all! There's not much to it besides that. The code worked fine before up until this point.

I tried using different virtual devices, since I found that a similar error was fixed by doing that, but it didn't help. Here's my code from StoryActivity:

public class StoryActivity extends AppCompatActivity {

public static final String TAG = StoryActivity.class.getSimpleName();

private String name;
private Story story;
private ImageView storyImageView;
private TextView storyTextView;
private Button choice1Button;
private Button choice2Button;

protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

    storyImageView = (ImageView)findViewById(R.id.storyImageView);
    storyTextView = (TextView)findViewById(R.id.storyTextView);
    choice1Button = (Button)findViewById(R.id.choice1Button);
    choice2Button = (Button)findViewById(R.id.choice2Button);

    Intent intent = getIntent();
    name = intent.getStringExtra(getString(R.string.key_name));
    if (name == null || name.isEmpty()) {
        name = "Friend";
    Log.d(TAG, name);

    story = new Story();


private void loadPage(int pageNumber) {
    final Page page = story.getPage(0);

    Drawable image = ContextCompat.getDrawable(this, page.getImageID());

    String pageText = getString(page.getTextId());
    // Add name if placeholder is included, won't add if not
    pageText = String.format(pageText, name);

    choice1Button.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
        public void onClick(View v) {
            int nextPage = page.getChoice1().getNextPage();

    choice2Button.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
        public void onClick(View v) {
            int nextPage = page.getChoice2().getNextPage();
