TRAPPED

 

 

End House holds us trapped.

Roars fill the inky darkness.

This door must be the wrong one.

Wild animals pace in their cages.

I can feel their hot breath on my neck.

That’s because their cages have opened.

They’re moving closer.

They’re stalking us.

We’re backed against a wall.

I close my eyes.

Then we’re falling.

I can see the ocean below.

Shrieks come from above.

What now?

TAKE ME TO THE CHURCH

Take me to the church.
The town’s on fire.
Hell has let loose its demons.

Take me to the church.
The Town Hall has lost its windows.
The Dead are taking over the town.

Take me to the church.
I want to live.
I refuse to become one of The Dead.
We must run for shelter.

Take me to the church.
I can see the church.
It’s standing strong against the storm.
Its door is standing open.
Welcoming us.
Let’s go inside.

Take me to the church.
Hell is raining down upon us.
Creatures are stalking us.

Take me to the church.
The church is gone
in a puff of smoke.
It stands no more.
Only a blackened shell
of its former self.

Take me away.
The Dead have won.
They always do.

Take me away from here.
Amen.

Where do the lights lead you?

Follow them and you shall see.

The hallway is long and dark.

Closed doors line the walls on either side.

Should we open one?

Let’s try this one.

There are steps leading down

to the basement.

We enter.

The door slams shut.

It’s locked.

We walk down the slippery steps.

Below, we find a pool of water.

Huge cages are falling from above.

They have sharp and pointy edges

that are trying to trap us.

They almost caught one of us.

Now circular saws are descending,

lined up in straight rows.

What do we do now?

This has been one of the many adventures

from the book, The Dead Game.

WE’RE HERE!

The Dead are rising from the smoke.

They will be walking the streets of Oasis.

Be careful to hide in your homes.

You wouldn’t want to meet them

on the deserted streets.

They will be hell to pay.

For hell will take you as

one of their own.

THE DEAD GAME — DAY 110

Image

The town of Oasis was becoming dangerous at night for the residents. Dark shadows were stalking the young people. Linda and her friend, Shana, had to find out what was happening to their town before more of their friends disappeared.

“The only one remaining is Shirley. At least she likes to talk and gossip about everyone,” said Linda.
“We still don’t know if this is the real Shirley, or just a good cover.” Shana looked over her shoulder and made one of her creepy faces.
“You’re beginning to sound like one of my mystery books. Now I won’t have to read them because we are faced with a mystery of our own.” Linda signed before opening the door to Shirley’s store.
“I’m just becoming more cynical and paranoid,” replied Shana.
Shirley looked genuinely happy to see them: jumping up, directing them to sit at her couch. Her office was homey-looking and she always acted very grandmotherly to them.
“I’m so happy to see you girls. I hardly ever get visitors.” Shirley was looking nervous for some reason.
“Are you attending Diane’s party? I hope it turns out better than that dreadful party at End House,” asked Linda.
“We weren’t invited to this party, but we really wanted to be at one of Diane’s famous events,” added Shana.
“All of Diane’s parties turn out so nice. Both of you can come as my guests. We dress up, eat, and dance. What could be bad about that?”
“We’d love to join you,” Shana said and then politely asked, “Should we pick you up on the way?”
“You can pick me up at 8:45 at my store,” answered Shirley very sweetly. Maybe too sweetly. She seemed very eager to have them as her guests—almost as if she had thought about this before and had something planned for them. Now I’m the one being paranoid: Shirley has never done anything to make us doubt her innocence before.
“We’ll see you tomorrow night,” said Linda before leaving the store.

THE DEAD GAME — DAY 60

THE DEAD GAME -- DAY 60

Impatient with both of them, Todd dragged them through the swarms of worms. Once they were outside the room, Linda gave a sigh of relief. The persistent worms were locked in the bedroom, behind the door that had concealed itself into the wall.
The next room turned out to be a huge library. Its four walls were lined with books, all the way up to the high, carved, domed ceiling.
Todd moved over to one wall of books, withdrawing one book at random. “The books are real in a fake house.” The book was Grimm’s Fairytales. He added, “A very appropriate book for this situation.”
He walked over to the desk. “Of course, no papers on the desk or in the drawers.”
Shana was spinning a large globe standing on the floor beside the desk. When she glanced down at it, she was startled to see that the globe portrayed a world without land but only water. “The person running this show has a weird perception of reality. His world consists only of water without land or people. Maybe he wants to get rid of everyone and live on this mountain all by himself,” she said.
“Or maybe he wants to live on this whole planet by himself,” Linda remarked, adding to Shana’s myopic explanation for the reasoning behind the fake party.
