Your search for a fire exit proved worthwhile. The building had four, one on
each side. On the other hand, the door was locked, leaving the three of you to
bash it open. Sarah, Mike and yourself threw your entire bodies against the
rotten door. In no time, the lock broke and the three of you leaped inside, just
as the monster that sped after you bit at your heels. The three of you fell to
the dusty floor gasping for breath; your veins ready to explode from the
commotion. The old woman was out of hearing distance now, yet the three of you
could feel her hatred still on the look out for three teens dressed as ghouls
and goblins. Then all of a sudden the clock tower was heard. The Cyclops with
its spinning eye commanded the air around it and bellowed out twelve distinct
“Gee, I can’t believe the old story was
true. There is a witch that eats children!” stated Sarah in a shocked voice.
“Yeah, too bad we couldn’t just read it
in a newspaper or something,” retorted Mike.
“Sure we know that she exists, but do you
think anyone else will believe us?” you stated with a hint of fright in your
“ Oh shut up, and let’s get home before
anything else happens!” commanded Mike sternly. The three of you got up on
your feet and slowly made your way to the alley where the zooming car was
hungrily chasing you, like an enraged horse with a sinister rider. As the three
of you walked briskly through the city, the owl could be heard from a nearby
tree, as though taunting” You die, you die, you die!” The outskirts it
seemed where full of critters and animals. An hour passed and still you walked,
slower this time, yet with a troubled soul, for neither of you three, knew where
you where, or where to go. No one was about, not even the children, that did so
annually. What was wrong with this world?
“Where are we Matt?” probed Sarah.
“If I knew I would say, but it seems that
I am lost!” you replied.
“All right lets stop and discuss this like
adults.” Sarah stated.
“I know we where north-west of Matt’s
house when we first discovered the witch, but now, after all this bedlam, I
really don’t know. “ Mike added.
“ Plus, this world could have been
changed, for unearthly forces are about!” cut in Sarah.
“This is stupid, lets just keep going and
try to look for something, or someone to help us with directions. Maybe we will
find a place of business or a house and borrow their phone, “ you replied.
“ All right, lets go and look for a house,
that’s not abandoned or witch infested!” said Mike with reassurance and
“Fine lets go!” agreed Sarah. On you
went, examining houses and searching for people, but it seems, no one was out or
in. Sarah shivered now, it being around forty degrees outside. Perhaps, a jacket
would have been nice. Yet now, there was no time for delusional thinking. The
three of you came up to an old rusty sign, not unlike the one you could see at
the intersection of roads in a rural area. It stated that you where twenty miles
from Norfolk, your hometown! But how could this be possible? Your wanderings
could not have brought you this far! The sign also states that the city of
Groain is two miles off to the east. Do you:
A) go to Norfolk, your home town
B) Go to Groain
C) Go back exactly where you came from
