The North Forest Lake Hotel Part 2
WARMING MAY CONTAIN PARTS THAT WILL TRIGGER THOSE WHO DON'T LIKE GORE AND HORROR!
“Sure!” Tyler said, always trying to impress Jen.
“I’m ok with that…” Jack said with a side glare at Tyler who pretended not to notice.
“I’m cool with it if you are,” Kyle said to Mary
Mary shrugged her shoulders and then silently mouthed ok to Kyle even though they all saw it.
“Sounds fun!” Indigo said.
Everyone but Florence agreed.
“No,” Florence said.
“Why?” Jen asked.
“You know I hate that game!” Florence said.
“But…” Jen started to say.
“No,” Florence said, “you talked me out of going to sleep and we agreed only thirty minutes.”
“So?” Jen asked.”
“That was an hour and a half ago!” Florence exclaimed.
“Fine.” Jen said, “But we are still playing!”
“Okay,” Florence agreed “I like to read before I go to sleep anyway.”
“Okay, who starts?”
“I will!” said Nick, “Truth or dare… Mary!”
Jen smiled a little bit as if things were going according to her plan.
“Why me?” Mary asked.
“Just answer the question,” Nick said impatiently.
“Fine… uh dare!”
“Ok I dare you to open the door and yell ‘Fire!’”
Mary was shocked for a second but then shook her head, got up, opened the door, and yelled fire. Loud enough that the whole floor could hear it. Nick snickered and Mary smiled.
“What?” Nick asked
“You forgot that the building is completely abandoned! No one heard me!” Mary said smiling.
“Oh come on!” Nick yelled. And everyone laughed.
“Ok Jen,” Mary said “Truth or dare?”
Jen smiled again and then thought for a second.
“Oh come on!” Tyler said.
“Really?” Nick asked.
“Come on Jen! Live a little!” Indigo said
Jen rolled her eyes and was about to change her answer when Mary said,
“No, no, It’s ok! She fell into my trap.”
Everyone got curious.
“Have you ever liked Tyler?” Mary asked.
Tyler and Jack both looked at her expectingly.
“Well…” Jen said blushing a bit.
“Well…?” Tyler asked expectingly.
“Well, I guess a little bit when we first met,”
Jack and Tyler’s mouths opened in shock.
“But then I saw Jack auditioning for the football team and later saw Tyler bullying someone and I said ’do I want to date such a jerk instead of this guy and of course I chose Jack!”
Jack got happy again and Tyler slumped in a corner grumbling to himself.
“Now Mary…” Jen said
“Nope,” Mary said calmly.
“What do you mean ‘nope’?” Jen asked.
“You can’t ask someone who asked you,” Mary said.
“Come on, just one time!” Jen pleaded.
“Fine…” Mary said.
“I dare you…” Jen started “To go into room 666 with me!”
All mouths dropped.
“What?” Mary asked, awestruck.
“You heard what I said.”
Mary was shocked but then she closed her mouth, gritted her teeth, and said fine.
“Well if you’re going I’m going with you,” Kyle said.
Jack sighed, knowing his girlfriend was going and best friend was going, he was trapped. “I guess me too then,” he said.
Tyler saw an opportunity and said, “I’ll come too!”
“If you guys are going, I am too!” said Indigo.
“Don’t leave me out…” Terra said.
“Or me!” said Nick.
Jen looked at Florence who had put down her book after what Jen had said and was now shocked at her friends being stupid enough to go too.
“You?” asked Jen.
“No, no way!” Florence said “You all are crazy!” she picked up her book and continued reading.
Jen shrugged at the others, her plan to have company in 666 was partly successful. She patted herself on the back for how well she played Truth or Dare.
So, eight of the nine students walked to room 666. Jen tried to open the door but it was locked.
She looked at the others who had seen that the door wouldn’t open and said “Now what?”
“Alow me…” Tyler said. He jiggled the door handle and then with a sharp, sudden, and strong movement, he broke the old lock and the door swung open.
“After you…” he said to Jen.
Jen rolled her eyes and walked in followed by Mary, Kyle, Nick, Indigo, then Terra. When Jack got to the door Tyler whispered “Prince Charming ain’t that strong now is he?”
Jack rolled his eyes and caught up to Jen who looked at him disappointedly. The room was empty except for an old stool, an old nightstand, and old two beds. As they kept exploring nothing exciting happened.
Kyle looked out the window and noticed that the room was like a wart sticking out of the side of the building. He called the others' attention to it, none of them had noticed it sticking out when they were on the bus. They all shrugged it off and continued looking around. Everything looked like it hadn’t been touched in ages, It was clean though. The wood creaked very loudly as they walked around. They tried to step softly which helped a little bit. Mary saw something sticking out of the bed and got closer to investigate when the floorboards under her broke and she started to fall.
Mary screamed as she fell but Kyle caught one of her arms and yelled to the others. Marry gasped as her feet were three stories above solid ground Jack, Jen, Terra, Nick, and Indago ran to help Kyle pull Marry up but Tyler froze. Jack and Jen got to Kyle first so Terra Nick and Indago were standing there as backup. Indigo saw Tyler just standing there… standing in shock and yelled.
“Gonna help dufus?!”
Tyler snapped back to reality and knelt next to them trying to find a way to help.
With the combined strength of Kyle Jack and Jen, they pulled Marry up.
Kyle hugged Marry and tried to soothe her, she was trembling and crying on Kyles’s shoulder.
“We should head back now…” Terra said.
They all hastily agreed.
It took over an hour for everyone to calm Marry down, no one could blame her though. Jen apologized a million times for putting Marry in danger like that, it took a while for Marry to be able to speak fully but when she could she forgave Jen and made every promise that they wouldn’t tell her parents because they all knew that that would stop that friendship immediately. The boys left for the night and the girls went to sleep. Jen woke up to a hand clamping over her mouth. She tried to scream but it was muffled, she saw the receptionist standing over her.
“Did you go into room 666?” The receptionist hissed, removing her hand so Jen could respond.
“What?” Jen asked.
“Did you go into room 666?!” The receptionist said louder.
“How do you know?”
“Because your bus driver is dead!”
