Wierd Experiences Pt.1
Chp.1: The Trouble
can come, too, if you want.", I said.
winced, the wound on her finger hurting her. "Alright", she managed to reply.
"And maybe I can get a band-aid from the office downstairs."
followed me from behind, blowing on her open wound to ease the pain. I wished
this was only a bad dream and I
was at home sleeping. Recently, those hideous ghosts hay wired the school's
electrical system. The dimness of the whole school felt so evil. Our only source
of light was our flashlights and the bright moonlight illuminating from the
windows. The rest of the group in front of me telling us to hurry
Ayeza stopped to wait for me, then whispered, "Are you sure you wanna
go? I'm thinking this isn't a good idea."
looked at her abruptly. "You were the one who suggested the idea. We've come
this far and we can't back out now. It would have helped if this school wasn't
located in a deserted place."
of us were going down the stairs, then suddenly, we heard footsteps running
towards us. I turned and realized it was Francis and Suren.
coming!", I heard Francis yell. Suren was bleeding. His arm was badly cut, due
to the rough, surfaced walls of the doomed hallway. He cursed out loud in pain.
"Dammit, hurry up! They're coming to get us!!!"
Ayeza, Anne, Alvin, Jeremee, and Michelle rushed down the stairs and out the
exit beside the office. One of the teacher's car, which was a van, was unlocked
and with the keys still intact inside. Everyone hopped in, waiting anxiously for
the rest of the guys.
"Look, me and Suren'll
go back to fetch the others. Anybody wanna come, too? Jerimee? Alvin?", Francis
Nobody seemed to
volunteer to help, nor move. Francis didn't want to waste time forcing any of us
to help, so he left to assist Suren, without hesitation.
When he left, everyone
was silent. Then Michelle broke the silence.
"What do you think will
happen to us?", Michelle asked.
"I don't know, besides
getting turned into one of the ghosts?", Jeremee quipped, laughing nervously.
No one seemed to think it was funny, though, usually he was one of our class
I thought I heard Alvin
chatter his teeth in fear. In my opinion, most of the guys has turned into
chickens. "We're the only ones left. The JKs-grade 7s and all the teachers have
all been taken by the ghosts, and there's only a few grade 8s left. Who knows
what they did to them.", Michelle said.
After 30 minutes, we
were all worried about the others. What if they were caught, too? No, that can't
be it. Everyone in the city has been...captured...or worse.
"That's it, I've had
enough waiting. We're going back there and get the others.", declared Jerimee.
"We'll get caught.",
Michelle uttered, her lips quivering.
"I agree with Jerimee.",
I finally spoke. It was time to face our fears. It's the only way to save
Jerimee nodded in
agreement and jumped off the van, heading back towards the haunted school. I
followed suit, then I heard Ayeza call.
"Wait, I'll go with you.
I don't wanna stay here."
Alvin, Michelle, and
Anne agreed, too. So they decided to join me and Jerimee to help Francis and
Suren. We scurried to the office. Jerimee began to speak.
"It'll be easier for us
to find them if we split up."
Michelle gasped in fear.
"No, No, I don't want to be alone. Can I go with Anne?"
Jerimee sighed. "Fine.
Anne?" Anne nodded.
He continued." I'll go
to the hallway upstairs. Alvin, you go down the basement--"
"Me and Ayeza'll go to
the area around the library!", I quickly stated.
Jerimee gave us the
approval. "Michelle, Anne, you two wanna check the area around here?"
They both agreed.
A small smile played in
Jerimee's lips. "Okay, let's get to work people."
As assigned, everyone
went to their designated areas.
cautiously opened the library door. I took my flashlight and peered inside by the window.
No one seemed to be in there, I thought. But heck, we went in, nevertheless. The
library was a total chaos, compared to when it was viewed from the outside.
Bookshelves were topple over. Books were violently scattered on the floor.
Chaos...The room where Ms. Amenta is usually found was in disarray. Me and Ayeza
searched the whole library for anyone or anything that was useful. I was
rummaging around the back of the library when Ayeza called me.
gonna go search outside the library. I think it's better that way.", she said,
wiping a bead of sweat on her temples.
you don't have a flashlight."
merely shrugged and said, "So?"
That's Ayeza alright, I told myself. So reckless...
"Okay. Hurry, up, though. I don't want to be alone..."
"Don't worry, I'm scared, too.", she said, putting on a playful smile to keep my
spirits up," But you'll be fine, and so will I"
smiled back. Then, she left.
alone. Here in the cold library, which was usually full of joy and excitement of
kids. It was hard to continue searching without Ayeza around 'cause it was
pretty scary, but I forced myself to conquer my fears. What if those ghosts find
me and take me? Like they did to Reyn and Carleen...and all my other friends.
felt the hair on the back of my neck stand up when I heard the eerie sound
coming from under the collapsed bookshelves.
"Who's t-there?", I queried, my heartbeat racing. I used the
flashlight to investigate the surroundings.
first I thought it was one of the ghosts, but then when it groaned again, I
realized it was more of a person's voice.
warily stepped closer to the bookshelf it came from.
in doubt so I took my flashlight and used it so I could see who this person
That's him alright, I thought.
His head was sticking out from the bookshelf that was pressing down on him so
Without thinking, I fiercely lifted up the bookshelf, even though it was
terribly heavy and it only budged a bit. I was going to call Ayeza for help, but
the bookshelf shifted enough for him to slip out. I dragged him farther from the
bookshelves. I flipped him over and saw several scratch marks in his face. He
groaned in pain again. I had to notify Ayeza right away.
be right back, Mark. I'll just go find Ayeza to help me out."
I stood to my feet and was about to look for Ayeza when he grabbed my ankle,
incapable of moving.
"You're not going anywhere, little girl.", he said in a hoarse voice.
gasped, feeling petrified when I realized this wasn't Mark...anymore. His eyes
turned red with fury. It was so scary that I thought if I had looked again, I
might turn to stone.
Help!!!", I cried in panic.
closed my eyes as he stood, now facing him right in the face. In an impulse, I
punched his cheek. I opened my eyes and gasped at what I had done.
in time, Ayeza came running to the scene. "What happened? I heard you scr--"
jaw dropped in shock at the sight of Mark lying on the floor, unconscious. She
hurriedly dashed towards him. "What happened to him?"
grinned mischievously. "I knocked him cold."
Normally, she would have asked me why, but by the looks of me, she didn't had
to. It almost seemed like she read my eyes. She grinned back. "Let's bring him
down the nurse's room so we can tend his injuries."
two of us bought him down the office. Ayeza carefully laid him down the couch so
he can be more comfortable. She started to mend his wounds while I sat on the
"Aren't Michelle and Anne supposed to be here?", I started, absently
rolling the piece of gauze around my finger.
don't know what happened to them. Maybe those shitty ghosts got them, too."
"Don't say that. It's bad enough that it's just a few of us survived."
sighed, and walked out of the room. "You stay there and take care of Lelis. I'll
go look for the others."
sure you don't need a buddy to go with?"
"After what I did to Mark, what have I got to be scared of? I got two powerful
fists right here.", I bravely said.
Ayeza shrugged and I fled the room.
