I’m hosting a sleep over with Bell and Mary. We sleep in Mom’s bedroom, Bell and Mary’s heads at the head of the bed, while I lay the opposite way with my head at the foot. They’re convinced that they’re seeing shadows moving in the darkness. I watch for movement, but all I catch are the reflections in the mirrors of Mary and Bell’s feet moving. I grab Mary’s foot to be sure that’s what I’m seeing, and am proved right.
Mary pulls out her iPod and types out, “it could be a ghost” with a lot of typos, but I figure out what she was trying to communicate. She doesn’t say it out loud, because she doesn’t want to be the one that brings it up to Bell. So, I am the one that brings up the topic to all three of us- saying that it could be ghost and backing that up by stating that a lot of weird things have been going on in this house.
Suddenly, before my friends have a chance to reply, my Skyrim character on the TV un-pauses and runs forward madly, swinging her war-hammer like she’s trying to attack something. I look down at the controller laying in the heaping blankets on the bed, but none of the buttons have been pushed. It freaks us all out.
Now I am my character. The setting is a broken down hospital, overgrown with green plants and vines. Strange, disgusting, plant-like monsters roam the halls. I try to stay out of their sight, and sneak my way through undetected. The hardest enemy to avoid being detected by isn’t the monsters, but actually the flashlight guards. Mary and Bell, who are in my tow, can be hit by the beam without the guard detecting us. As son as it hits me, however, we’re had.
I make it to the end of a hall, when I notice that a slug like plant monster is patrolling. It has translucent, vain-riddled skin, its the shape of a soggy, squishy potato, and it dotted with green leaves. I barely make it around the corner and down the adjacent hall a ways before it reaches where I was standing. I pray it doesn’t see me here, because I can’t go forward without entering the relatively clean part of the hospital and running into guards. The slug doesn’t notice me on it’s first pass, so I turn my back to it and try to see into the next area- trying to plan my sneak tactics. On the second, pass, however, the slug does notice me and charges. I hear it just in time before it reaches me to attack. I face it and scream. I try to fight it off with just my little pocket knife, but it pushes me backwards. I barely am able to defend myself as me and this slug crash into the florescent-lit room, where doctors and flashlight guards are startled by our appearance. The room doesn’t have near as much growth a the rest, is quite clean and well lit, though obviously still part of an abandoned building. Mary and Bell manage to fight off all of the guards that I alerted, and I finally kill the stupid slug that ruined my sneak-through-undetected plan.
We all run into this bathroom, and Bell and Mary push the doors to keep them closed. I try to find the blue pills in my pill bottle so that I can do magic, but I am all out. It would have been so convenient to be able to use fire magic and just burn all of these guards and monsters. Bell peaks into the next room, which is lit even brighter and is uncharacteristically clean- basically spotless like a real functioning hospital. Two scientists in there notice us. One of them flames up both of his entire arms, grinning wickedly as though he can’t wait to use his fire magic against us once we come out.
We can’t go back, so we charge. We burst through the doors at a full sprint, and run through the maze-like, pristine hospital. This place must be a secret lab, located in the middle of a broke down hospital- which is perfect cover really. Who would suspect that within the walls of an abandoned hospital, there is a fully functioning, evil lab? Especially with all of the growth and monsters running around, so menacing that no one would want to come snooping around anyway.
We make it all the way to the lobby before the scientists unleash the product of their sick and evil testing and experiments. They order their army of brainwashed children on us, to keep us from escaping. None of these poor children are over twelve years old, all zombie-like, attacking us like robots programmed to follow orders. We have to fight back, to stop them from killing us or capturing us, no matter how awful it is. I hit one girl on the head, before I realize that she’s not attacking me and just standing there. Thankfully I don’t hit her to hard. She’s one of the scarce that aren’t completely controlled by the scientists mind control. She’s Indian, with black hair and soft dark skin- no older than seven. She looks small and fragile, and I want to do nothing but save her from this hellish nightmare. I take her hand, and she runs with us. We come across yet another girl that isn’t quite under the control, a girl with blond hair and light skin, around eleven.
We finally make it outside, run down the street. As soon as we’re down the street a ways, all urgency in our escape is gone. We’ve made it out, and we are safe. My family, including my granny and papa, uncle and aunt, and mom are with us now.
The girls shiver from the frigid air, and I give them both the two jackets I have on. [continued]
