Out Go The Lights

All dazed. All confused. All in grave danger.


2. No Escape

Harry wormed his way out of his seat and onto the floor. "Okay," he said as he brushed the dirt off his shirt. "Hang on, I'll untie you". He untied the others and they got up out of their chairs and thanked him.

"Right, let's look for a way out of this madhouse" Sam examined every corner of every wall of the room, desperate to find a way out.

"I bloody wish this was over soon," Daniel hoped, "My wedding reception's in just over an hour".

"And I have to get home to my children" exclaimed Becky.

Quentin was busy pushing the walls. When one of them asked what he was doing he replied, "I'm tryna find a secret exit. You know, like in Indiana Jones or some shit".

Philip had started looking up at the upper part of the walls. "Err... what are you doing, doofus?" Becky asked. "I'm looking for booby traps to disable" he replied.

"Okay, there are no booby traps, or secret exits. No fantasy bullshit here, alright?" Harry firmly told anyone. "We're not the Goonies. We're just nine or ten people stuck in a room somewhere".

"Have you ever seen a movie? Like...Ever?" Quentin questioned but was hushed by Levi, who hadn't been doing anything.

"We're just going to die here. Admit it" he said, glumly.

Delphina and Arthur (who were dating by the way) were giving each other leg-ups to try and open the air vent at the top of the wall. "I think I've cracked it" Arthur said.

"Great, but how can we all get up there?" Lori asked. A few people were wondering the same.

"We don't" Harry replied sadly. "The air vent is so far up there so that nobody can get-" he was cut off because Arthur had clambered through it somehow.

"Not very realistic, are we?" Arthur smiled as he crawled through the vents. "I'll come back for you if I see anything".

"Be careful!" Delphina called. Arthur said something back but it was almost inaudible.


A few moments passed. Then a few more moments. Then some more. They were all growing impatient and nervous. "That bugger's just getting killed now I reckon" Levi looked up at the hole where Arthur climbed through.

"At least he knows what he's doing" Harry reassured him.

"None of us have a clue as to what we're doing. We're going mad here. We're boiling like potatoes on Thanksgiving!" Sam moaned. Suddenly an ear-piercing shriek was heard from the air vents.

"I bloody told you" Levi quietly told Harry. Just then, a blood-covered Chuck Taylor shoe was sent soaring through the air vent and onto the floor.

"Holy shit" Becky exclaimed and Delphina let out a small scream.

"Okay," Harry thought to himself. "So Arthur's dead?"
