Chapter 5: To Crumbles- Part 4

1
Von shot up fast
And punched the guard in the
Side of the head, “Get off her,”
He yelled. The guard shoved Von
One hand squeezing Naye’s neck

2
Yasmine attacked
She slapped and punched the guard
Naye scratched and clawed at his
Handsl; the guard screamed and hissed,
“It belongs to Eastlie.”

3
The guard hollered
As Ayah hit him over
The head with a microscope
His grip loosened and Naye
Kicked him between the legs

4
“The hell?!” Von yelled.
“I thought he was dying,”
Yasmine coughed. Ayah cried,
“He was bleeding out.” Von
Huffed, “You aight, Naye?”

5
Naye rubbed her neck
Then kicked the guard; “No,” she
Choked out, “Who is this guy?”
“Lou,” Yasmine replied, “He
Was a guard. Is he dead?”

6
“I ain’t checking,”
Naye cried, running around
The lab desk; “Me neither,”
Ayah said. The teen girls
Turned to Von, his eyes bulging

7
“Why I gotta
Check his pulse?” Von remarked.
Arms crossed Yasmine said, “Just
Check him.” Von glared and exhaled.
He bent down; fingers pressed

8
“He is deceased,”
Von exhaled. The man lunged
And jumped on top of Von
His hands squeezing the teens
Thick neck; Von head-butted him

9
The man’s nose gushed
And Von shoved him off;
Naye screamed as the man sprinted
To her; he pushed her into Yasmine
And picked up the strange skull

10
He raised the skull
Over his head and said,
“She will be free!” The teens
Sat scattered around the lab
Bewildered and dizzy

11
The skull turned to
Dust in Lou’s hands and he
Shouted; the teens jumped up
As he turned to them, wrath
Flooding his face, he snapped

12
He punched Von in
The nose and back-handed Yasmine
“Where is it??” he demanded.
Ayah picked up a needle
And stabbed the man; he didn’t flinch

13
He slapped her and
Grabbed a large glass, slamming
It over her head; she cringed
And turned to smoke; the guard
Lost his balance and fell

Chapter 5: To Crumbles- Part 3

1
The loudest scream
Yasmine had ever heard
Came shooting out of the
Darkness as her fist clacked
“Ayah?” Yasmine hollered.

2
“What the hell, girl,”
Yasmine cried, realizing
That the figure was Ayah
The frightened teen squeezed her
Nose—“He’s dying,” she screamed.

3
Ayah jumped up
And grabbed Yasmine’s arm,
Pulling her through the door
“What’s going on,” Von cried,
As he and Naye watched them leave

4
Yasmine broke free
“Calm down,” she whispered, “What
Happened?” Ayah inhaled,
“A guard fell and cracked his head.”
Yasmine followed Ayah

5
Blood spilled and stained
Yasmine ran her hands through
Her thick hair; trying to
Think—She rushed to the man
“He’s still breathing,” she cried.

6
“We gotta get him
Out of here now,” Yasmine cried.
“We gotta get help,” Ayah said.
Yasmine nodded and rushed
Back down the passageway

7
“What’s going on,”
Naye yelled when Yasmine
Returned to the lab, her
Hands dripping with blood; she
Looked at Von and said, “Its cursed.”

8
Von grumbled and
Said, “Let me get this tooth
Back into that things mouth
And we’ll get the hell out of here.”
Ayah was shaking—Fear

9
Ayah paced up
And down the room as Von
Struggled to stand up; “Give
Me a hand,” Yasmine snapped,
Helping Von to the glass room

10
Ayah and Naye
Wrapped their arms under Von’s
Armpits and guided him
To the tiny glass room
He carefully pushed the tooth in

11
The skull sparked or
Gleamed, Yasmine swore it
Did—the teens stood frozen
In wonder; “Did that just happen?”
Naye questioned; “I think so,” Von said.

12
The guard from the
Next lab appeared behind Naye
Ayah gasped, “Are you okay?”
The man’s eyes were blood shot
He growled and began choking Naye

Chapter 5: To Crumbles- Part 2

1
It broke into
Tiny little wooden
Chips in front of the guard
“You can’t be down here,” he
Started, then breathed in and coughed

2
Ayah flinched as
Purple dust from the crumbled
Box floated into the air
And into the guard’s mouth
His wild cough turned to shakes

3
His head jolted
And the guard fell flat on
His back with the loudest
Crack Ayah had ever heard
She ran to him, blood spilling

4
His head gushed blood
Ayah checked his pulse, he
Was alive; she searched the lab
Collecting lab coats to
Put under his head

5
“Stay with me,” she
Cried, plugging his bleeding
Head; she grabbed his radio,
Pressing buttons and turning
Knobs “Can anyone hear me.”

6
Only static
Ayah squeezed the man’s hand
“I’ll go get some help,” she cried
And jumped to her feet,
Running down the passageway


7
Von looked down and
Spotted the tooth in the
Puddle of his blood; “There,”
He pointed; Judas grabbed
The tooth, gagging and squirming

8
Naye laughed, “So gross.”
Von glared at her and squealed
His knee was badly bleeding
“Can you walk?” Yasmine asked.
Von tried, screaming as he failed

9
“The first-aid kit
Is on the bottom shelf
Of that cabinet,” Von said.
Carlo rustled through it
“Got it,” he said, rushing to Von

10
Yasmine pointed
At Carlo and Judas
“Go to level nine and
Snag a wheelchair,” she said.
The teens glared at each other

11
“Now,” Yasmine screamed.
The boys quickly obeyed
“Help me clean and wrap this,”
Yasmine said to Naye; they
Gently helped Von clean his knee

12
Yasmine squeaked as
The power in the lab
Went out, “What the hell,” Naye
Screamed; Yasmine finished
Wrapping Von’s knee

13
Yasmine grind her
Teeth, “The elevators
Should still work,” she said.
“There;s a back up generator,”
Naye let out a sigh, “Good.”

14
Yasmine peered through
The window; a figure
In the dark jetted straight
Toward them; she panicked
Opened the door and swung

Chapter 5: To Crumbles- Part 1

1
“You okay?” Carlo
Asked, rushing to help Von up
Judas was at his side
The teens carried Von to
The nearest chair; “Shh,” Naye said.

2
A strobe of light
Beamed through the windows
Carlo flinched and wrapped his
Thich arms around Von’s chest,
Carrying the teen to the floor

3
The teens ducked down
Hiding in the shadows
Of the cold, cavernous
Lab—Holding his breath,
Carlo squeezed Von’s hand

4
Chills raced down his
Chest, reminding Carlo that
They were in forbidden
Territory—the thrill
Von’s reaction helped too

5
Carlo smiled
As he sat face to face
With Von, his finger on
Von’s full lips, warning him
Not to breathe a syllable

6
The danger passed
And the teens slowly crept
To their feet, the guard was gone
“That was close,” Yasmine croaked
“Where’s the tooth?” Judas panicked.


7
Ayah sat still
Fighting the urge to run
Screaming through the passage-
Ways; she knew she heard laughter
That was not a question

8
But as she sat
Curled up in a ball, she
Wondered if the laugh was
Wicked or teasing, and
That thought made her laugh out

9
Ayah threw her
Hand onto her mouth as
The frightened giggle leaped
From her lips; she rolled her eyes
And got up from the dark

10
She shook off the
Fear and proceeded to
Examine the cold, dark room
She pressed her phone on and
Used its beam to lead her

11
She was in the
Bio-lab where researchers
Kept the tanks filled with
Marine life and algae
Catching a clown fish dance

12
Ayah gasped when
A small wooden box flashed
Inside an empty tank
She knew what she wanted
To get a snap of

13
She slid across
The room, put her phone down,
And reached into the tank
The box was light; the wood
Soft and delicate—ancient

14
She held it in
Her right hand, picked up her phone,
And took two snaps of it
“Who’s in here?” a guard barked.
Ayah dropped the box—crumble

Chapter 4: Blood Calls to Blood- Part 4

1
“What was that?” Naye
Squealed, grabbing onto Von
“Something fell,” Yasmine said.
“Something crashed,” Carlo said.
Carlo and Judas jumped up

2
“Which lab?” Von asked.
“Not ours,” Judas replied.
“Should we check it out?”
Carlo asked. “No,” Naye cried,
“Let’s finish this and leave.”

3
Naye was correct
They had not business down
There and should just stick to
What they came for; “Let’s go
Then,” Yasmine said; walking back.

4
The teens returned
To their lab, pushing the door
Open and clicking on
The lights; Von went straight to
The class room in the back

5
“My parents keep
All new findings in here,”
Von explained; he pulled out
The key card and opened the door
With a deep breath he walked in

6
His friends followed
And the quickly found the
Mysterious object
It was a skeleton
Some unknown species

7
“Okay,” Naye said,
“We found it. Now what?”
“My tio gave this to me,”
Judas revealed a tooth
He said to put it back

8
Carlo complained,
“That’s what we came here for?”
“My tio said he pulled it out.
And the only way to end the curse
Is to put it back.”

9
Naye and Yasmine
Started laughing; “What the
Actual hell!” Yasmine said,
“Your tio is a drunk.”
“Yeah but he ain’t a killer.”

10
“He said, Conrad,
Stole this from my parents,”
Von added, “Right after
His crew found a box at sea.
The box released something.”

11
“You’re serious?”
Naye questioned. “He’s very
Superstitious, and I
Promised him,” Judas said.
Footsteps made them all freeze.

12
Von flipped the lights
Running away from the
Window; he slipped and scraped
His knees; He covered his mouth
As blood spilled on the floor

Chapter 4: Blood Calls to Blood- Part 3

1
All it took was
A clumsy collision
For Carlo and Judas
To become enemies
At least that’s what Naye thought

2
They spent the next
Five minutes arguing
About who bumped into
Whom—Naye crossed her arms
Judas shoved Carlo hard

3
Von stepped between
The teens and said, “Chill out.”
“Who the hell is this guy?”
Jonas yelled. Von glared and
Said, “Stick to the mission.”

4
Yasmine giggled
Carlo shoved Judas back
“What’s your problem with me?”
Carlo glared at Judas
“I’m sorry, Von,” he said.

5
Carlo turned and
Walked down the next hall; Von
Tried to follow him, “Let
Him go,” Judas complained.
Von glared at him and ran

6
“Wait up, Carlo,”
Von called out after him.
He grabbed his shoulder and
Stopped the teen; his face was
Covered in shame and something else

7
“I’m sorry about
Judas,” Von defended,
“He’s been feeling down since
His uncle got arrested.”
“Don’t leave yet,” Von smiled.

8
Carlo smiled
“How can someone so sweet
Be friends with him,” Carlo asked.
Von looked at his feet
“History and chance,” he grinned.

9
“Maybe someday,
We’ll have history and
A chance,” Carlo whispered.
Von’s cheeks burned as Carlo’s
Mouth met his and he kissed him

10
Von was breathless
As Carlo’s hand caressed
His hair—Judas cleared his throat
“We’re waiting for you,”
Von jumped out of the kiss

11
Judas glared down
At his friend—razor eyes
He walked back down the hall
“Jealous much?” Carlo remarked.
Judas turned and jumped him

12
The teens wrestled
Punching and rolling; Von
Stood there frozen in shock
Yasmine and Naye pulled up
“What the hell,” Yasmine yelled.

13
Von shook his head
“Stop!” Yasmine screamed, then the
Sound of a crash from one
Of the labs forced the teens
To pause chills spreading fast

Chapter 4: Blood Calls to Blood- Part 2

1
Ayah froze quick
The sound of whispers
Echoing through the air
“You’re losing it,” she thought,
“Stay focused; find the lab.”

2
Five doors checked and
None of them led her
Any closer to proving
Her fearlessness, just an
Empty hall calling her name

3
Ayah’s skin crawled
When the sixth doorknob she
Tried did not budge; she was
Lost and she kicked the door
Then a click and open

4
She would have fled
But she was already
In purgatory so
She might as well find her
Courage and get the snapchat

5
She squeezed her phone
As she pushed the door
And proceeded inside
The lab chilled her body
More than the passageway

6
The smell of bleach
Attacked her nostrils as
She stepped deeper into
The dark; no light hummed on
She froze at the sound of laughter

7
Ayah jumped down
To her knees and crawled
Under a table, lifting
Her knees to her chin, she held
Her breath; straining to hear


8
Von put his hand
Over his mouth, trying
To trap in his laughter
Judas glared at Carlo
Joking with his best friend

9
“Hey,” Naye whispered,
“What’re we gonna do when
We find this thing?” Judas
Shrugged and said, “I don’t know.
Haven’t thought that far ahead.”

10
Naye laughed and said,
“Just going with the flow?”
“Something like that,” Judas grinned.
“So what’s the sitch?” Naye asked.
“What makes this place spooky?”

11
“It was a morgue,”
Yasmine explained. “Before
Carez was a research center
There was a massacre
On the old oil rig.”

12
Naye gasped; Von said,
“While the survivors waited
For rescue, the tossed the
Bodies down here, where some
Say the dead still roam.”

13
“You’re kidding right?”
Carlo remarked. Von grinned
And shook his head. “We’re here,”
Yasmine said, pointing at
The lab around corner

14
Von’s eyes lit up
Judas and Carlo bumped
Into each other as
They followed Von to the
Door; “Watch it,” Judas snapped.
