The North Forest Lake Hotel Part 5
The students ran inside after mourning what happened to Indigo. After they got in the doors they hid in the supply closet to talk about what they were going to do.
“What is this thing?!” Florence yelled.
“Shut up!” Terra hissed quietly. “It might hear you!”
Florence was quiet after that comment.
“Whatever it is, it can knock over a school bus,” Kyle said.
“No duh idiot!” Tyler said.
“Not the time Tyler!” Marry said she still couldn’t believe what she saw when after the bus flipped and she was still inside. The wide-open eyes and the slightly parted lips of someone she had sat with and ate with for over a year now.
“This is your fault!” Tyler said with venom in his voice as he pointed at Jen.
Tears started to reemerge in Jen’s eyes because she knew that it was true.
“Hey!” Jack said, “Back off!”
“Back off?” Tyler said back getting into Jack's face “She got two men, an old woman, and a young college student who had so much to live for killed!”
“She didn’t know that this would happen!” Marry said
“Well, it happened,” Tyler said, “and this is still her fault!”
Tears were streaming down Jen’s face now.
“Oh well now she’s crying,” Tyler said, “she wants all of us to feel bad for her!”
“Back off now!” Jack said.
“Guy’s…” Florence said.
“Or what?” Tylor asked Jack.
“Guys!” Florence said in a panicky voice, “Nick’s breathing is slowing down!” she looked at them all “Like a lot!”
Jen knelt next to Nick and said “My mom’s a nurse, I’ll see if anything she has said stuck with me.”
“We need to get him out of here,” Kyle said.
“Yeah, but how are we going to do that?” Marry asked.
Florence looked at everyone like they were idiots.
“Why are you looking at us like that?” Marry asked.
“Because you guys are forgetting something.” She whispered.
“What?” Kyle Whispered back.
“The bus isn’t the only car in the lot!” She said, “Just the only one that can take us all out of here.”
“Your right!” Marry said, “there are other cars in the lot!”
“Wait,” Jen said, “There were two, isn’t that weird?”
“How is that weird?” Terra said.
“Because we have only seen one person outside of our group,” Jen explained “That means that there is someone else here!”
“You guys didn’t know that?” Florence asked.
“No! Why would we know that!” Tyler asked.
“Keep your voice down!” Terra said angrily.
“I guess I forgot you’re as dumb as a doornail,” Florence responded to Tyler “And by the way, Interesting wat to get Jen to date you, blaming her for something you helped with.”
“Yeah,” Jack said, “Jen may have wanted us to go, but you opened the door.”
Tyler was quiet after that.
“Okay, I think we should leave,” Kyle said “Don’t want to stay in a single place for too long.”
“Makes sense,” Florence said, “Me, Tyler, Jen, and Mary will get Nick somewhere else, Jack, Kyle, and Terra, you guys should find whoever else is here, get some car keys and then one of us will bring Nick to the hospital and get help.”
“Why only one of us?” Kyle asked.
“That way whoever ends up staying will have a better chance at surviving,” Florence answered.
They all agreed and Kyle grabbed one of the guns and Jack and Terra left. Tyler picked up Nick with his one good arm.
Kyle, Terra, and Jack walked into the hotel halls and started to explore, looking for whoever else was there, and Tyler, Florence, Mary, and Jen (Mary was caring the second gun) took Nick to a room behind the receptionist counter where Jen found three walkie talkies.
“Here,” she said handing one to Florence “I’m going to bring one of these to Jack, Tyler, and Terra, I’ll be right back.”
Florence nodded approvingly and then started watching Nick to make sure he was breathing fine.
Jen walked into the hallway and started looking for Jack, Terra, and Kyle. She went to the right side of the building and started looking in unlocked rooms and closets. As she made her way down one of the hallways she heard it. Large footsteps like the ones they heard just before the receptionist died. It was coming from the hallway she was about to go in, but she couldn’t tell if they were coming toward her or walking away from her. She wished she had the gun right then. She breathed in quietly and peeked around the corner and nothing was there. She was confused for a second. But forgot about her confusion when she saw an opened door. That must be where Jack, Kyle, and Terra went! She thought.
She walked the door happily and opened it. Nothing was in the room. Then she saw another door open inside the room. This must be one of those rooms that are connected She thought. Then she felt a presence behind her. She spun around quickly and she saw huge hand inches from her body. It hit her with the force of a car and she went flying down the hall. She hit the wall and she fell into a sitting position. She was dazed but not unconscious. She tried to open her eyes but only saw a little bit. All she could tell was that whatever this was… it was huge. She tried to stand up but couldn’t all of a sudden, a gunshot rang out from behind the thing. It stopped and casually turn around to get hit in the head by a sledgehammer. It fell over and Jack, Terra, then Kyle rushed to her.
“Come on!” Jack said helping her up. She could barely hear him.
“It’s getting back up!” Kyle yelled, he let out three shots, all three collided but it didn’t seem to be fazed.
“Jen! Jen! What’s happening?” Florence said from the walkie-talkie.
Jack handed Jen to Terra and picked back up his sledgehammer. Tried to hit the thing again but it just caught the hammer and punched him. Jack went flying into the wall. Kyle unloaded a whole clip into the thing but it didn’t even slow down. Kyle helped Jack up and helped him limp away. The thing wasn’t running after them. It simply walked. It walked as if this wasn’t worth any effort.
“Jen! Jen!” Florence said from the walkie-talkie, but that was the last thing Jen heard. The sleepiness and darkness Jen had been fighting back overcame her and she fainted.
