Quietly opening the door to Angel’s house Michael watched her roommate walk into the kitchen area. Leaning his head to the de he stared at her for a moment, in a way she reminded him of his older ster. She was bent down looking in the refrigerator, as she began to stand straight he started up the stairway. As he reached the top landing he could hear her start up the steps.
Opening her vitamin water Leah took a long drink as she climbed her stairs, hearing foot steps she stopped in front of the spare rooms dark doorway. Turning her head in an attempt to hear better she waited, the sound never repeated itself. The lence became unsettling, taking another p she began to make her way to her room. It was about time to jump in the shower, she needed to look perfect in her costume.=========================
Stepping out from the dark bedroom Michael watched as she disappeared into her room, slowly he began to walk forward. Turning his head to stare into her room he stopped momentarily, watching her place her drink on her counter and pull out a change of underclothes. Turning his attention to Angel’s room he took a deep breath.========================
Placing her phone on the charger Leah picked up her underwear and made her way to the restroom, tting the clothes on the counter she began to pull the bobby pins from her hair. Hearing rustling in another room she peaked around the corner, no one was there to claim responbility for the noise. Pulling off her shirt and pants she looked at herself in the mirror, standing in nothing more than a white tank top and pink boy-shorts she studied her body.The sound of something heavy dropping to the floor made her flinch, breathing deeply she peaked out from the restroom once more. Sending her heart racing into a frenzy her eyes stopped on a towering man holding a large knife standing in Laurie’s room staring ahead. Clasping her hands over her mouth she quietly let out a soft breathy cry, collecting her thoughts she slid down the wall and grabbed her pants. Touching the pockets she remembered her phone was lying on her bed connected to its charger, quietly mouthing a curse word under her breath she shook in fear.Hearing the man take a heavy footstep brought a tear to her eye, she looked around with no where to go. If she wanted to potentially make it to her phone she was going to have to let him walk past her, had he seen her? Laurie was only a few houses down, maybe she could make a break for it. It would be smarter to leave the house first rather than to call the police and let him know you were home. Not sure what this mans motives were she began to think about her belongings, none of them were worth her life.Hearing another footstep Leah realized she didn’t have long to hide herself, taking another look around the room she realized there wasn’t much to chose from. She was trapped. Noticing she was small enough to fit herself in the cabinet beneath the nk she quietly opened the door. Her nerves twitched with terrifying anticipation, feeling the need to scream she clasped her hands around her mouth. Tears began to flow from her eyes like a waterfall, her nose began to run making it hard to breathe. Slowly lifting her hands from her mouth she drew in a slow, quiet breath.Listening carefully for any gn he was close Leah sat in lence, to her disappointment she couldn’t hear anything. The footsteps seemed to have stopped, maybe he made his way down the stairs. He could ealy have stayed in Laurie’s room, there was a big posbility he hadn’t seen her. After all she hadn’t seen him until he made a noise, maybe now was a good chance to attempt her escape. Drawing in a deep breath and steadying her shaking hands she slowly began to open the cabinet door, quickly taking a look at her surroundings she noticed he was nowhere to be seen. All she had to do was make it to the doorway, that would tell her if he was still upstairs with her. ===================================
Watching as she crawled out of the cabinet Michael slowly took a step out of the bathtub. quietly studying her movements he tilted his head. With both feet planted firmly on the tile floor behind her he gripped his knife tight in his hand,===================================
Feeling someone watching her Leah peaked out from the restroom doorway, no one was in ght. Her spine tingled as the pressure of evil changed the atmosphere, a tear fell as she began to look behind her. With a loud scream Leah made eye contact with the white mask. Without enough room to stand in the door way Leah quickly crawled from the restroom and rose to her feet, her legs bean to move as quickly as her heart. Feeling him close behind her she began to cry out loud, reaching the front door she began to twist the lock.
With a low growl trapped in his throat Leah felt his forearm collide with her ribs, knocking the wind from her lungs she fell to the ground. Not letting the pain register on her brain Leah began to run for the back door, she could hear as he tore through her living room. Anything in his way was moved with power, and with no time to change her path Leah jumped over the couch. With her leg not fully clearing the sofa she fell to the wooden floor with a thud, quickly pulling herself to her feet with the support beam that started the kitchen wall she felt a gust of wind graze her back.
With a loud crack the knife stabbed through the wood, the blade protruded through the other de. Quickly Leah tried getting away from his reach, still she felt as his hand gripped her hair through the bar opening in the kitchen wall. Turning to stop his force with her arms she fought to stay away from the blade. His hand was pushing firmly on the back of her head, slowly inching her face towards the knife. Removing one hand from the wall she reached for their knife set on the counter, with her fingers grazing the handles her heart started to nk with defeat. Pulling away just enough to reach the small knife on the bottom of the wooden block she pulled it from its sheath, with a fighting scream she impaled his hand.Hearing him take a deep breath she watched his eyes grew with rage, viciously he slammed her to the ground. Feeling her spine collide with the tile of the kitchen floor she yelped in pain, glancing in his direction she could see him begin to pull the knife from the wall. This was her chance to escape from this house.Pulling herself up ung the counter she began to open the kitchen window above the nk, knocking the screen off with force she screamed out in help. Lifting her weight onto the counter she began to pull her body through the window opening, the grass was only feet away. Then she could make a run for Rachel’s house, again anticipation flushed through her veins.Feeling a sharp pain shoot through her torso a loud thud filled her ears caung her to scream, his knife had torn through her abdomen and was stopped by the steel nk. Feeling blood begin to travel up her esophagus she attempted to cry out once more, viciously he tore the knife from her body and pulled her back onto the tile floor. Barely able to breath Leah watched as he stood over her, she was helpless.=========================
Savagely Michael began to thrust his blade into her abdomen, before tearing the knife from the wound he made sure to carve into her body. Slowly her screams faded as her organs became exposed, tilting his head to the de Michael examined his work. Pleased with himself he bent down and gripped her hair, dragging her lifeless body through the living room he made a blood trail back up the stairway.=========================tting in the empty restaurant made Laurie recognize how empty the town actually was tonight, bedes her group there were three other tables in the dinning room. It had been fun so far, there hadn’t been a dull moment yet. Tina was trying to keep her words as clean as posble around Emily, Rachel kept making her ster try different foods, and of course Andrew was making Laurie laugh. Bedes the holiday they were celebrating today was just short of perfect.After finishing up dinner Rachel took Emily into the restroom to help her with her costume, Tina and Chris headed outde to smoke, Laurie and Andrew followed with Steven.“Do you think she has been enjoying her night,” Chris asked.
“Hell yeah,” Tina took a drag from her cigarette. “We all have, its been great so far.”
“Plus that dinner was amazing,” Steven replied holding his stomach with joy.
“It really was good,” Andrew responded. “But now is going to be her favorite part, getting candy.” He smiled at this statement.
“Well at least we arent going to be ‘checking’ the candy for razors or anything.” Tina shook her head.
“Your parent’s did that to you to,” Andrew asked.
“Oh yeah, take my bag and grab all the name brand candy. They were bitches,” Tina laughed.
“Yeah, I always lost about twenty Snickers when my parents ‘checked’ my bag.” Laurie smiled remembering her mother and father.“I guess every kids parents did that to them, I mean it is free candy.” Chris inhaled the smoke from his cigarette.
“When I have my own kids im going to make sure and check their Twix,” Steven joked.
“Make sure to pull out some Skittles for me when you do,” Tina winked at her boyfriend.
“Who said I was having kids with you,” Steven replied.The group laughed at this comment, Laurie shook her head and looked to her right. A pale face peaked around the corner of the restaurant at her, hearing footsteps as the face disappeared Laurie’s heart fluttered. As her friends continued to joke Laurie stepped away from the group unnoticed. Taking a deep breath she held on tight to the wooden wall, taking her time she began to look around the corner.Suddenly someone grabbed her, they were digging into her stomach making growling noises. With a slight scream Laurie jumped back, looking down she seen Emily smiling. She had her hair damp with fake blood, a piece of fake flesh dangled from her cheek, fake veins were pushing against her pale skin. Rachel did a great job with the make up.
“I could be a special effects artist with this talent I know,” Rachel appeared from behind a tree. Still laughing from her plan to scare Laurie, she stopped, “What is wrong?”
“Nothing, she looks amazing. I just thought I saw someone else.” Laurie smiled at Emily.
Rachel could tell by the expreson on her friends face what Laurie was thinking, watching as her ster walked away with her Rachel looked around. She could feel someone watching them, and she hoped Laurie was wrong in what she saw. Not sure exactly what to be searching for Rachel stopped, by the dark trash bin she could make out a face. Taking a step forward she tried squinting to see farther in the distance. What she thought was a pale face had sunk into the dark. ================================
Watching as Rachel searched for him Michael receded into the darkness, and took in her actions. She had a strong dispotion, ready for what ever she may find. With a deep breath Michael tilted his head to the de, this could make for an interesting night.================================Waiting at the bottom of the steps for Emily to receive her candy Laurie took in the decorations from this house, it was one of the few that were actually handing out candy. There was a witch hanging from a tree tting on a broom, spider web covered their entire left de of the yard. Huge spiders were strolled throughout with fake human remains and strobe lights, the other de had multiple tombstones with zombie hands protruding from the soil. Moans could be heard and mechanical zombies were pulling their torso’s around the yard. A skeleton was hanging from their other tree with a rope around his neck, their porch was covered in orange lights. Multiple jack-o-lanturns sat on the railing, one was attached to a fake human body. Their intestines were trailing over the chair it was tting in, it was a shame more people couldn’t see this tonight.“I feel like we should decorate more for Halloween,” Rachel leaned in to mumble in Laurie’s direction.
“You and me both,” Laurie continued to stare at the detail.
“Thank you,” Emily could be heard telling the lady as she descended the steps.
“Okay Emily, one more. Then we are going to go home so Dad can come pick you up,” Rachel spoke to her little ster.
“Aww, Rachel.” Emily whined.
“Honey we have searched for every house we can,” Rachel stooped down to her sters eye level.
“I know,” Emily looked inde her surpringly full bag.
“Okay, two more then we are going home.” Rachel gave in to her ster.
“Yay!” Emily skipped off.
“Emily wait,” Rachel jogged after her.
Laurie was smiling as she walked behind them, watching as Emily tripped into one of the potholes Laurie ran to catch up.
“Are you okay,” Rachel was already helping her ster from her fall.
“Yeah, my candy fell out though.” Emily had a disappointed look on her face.
“Here we will help get all of it,” Laurie started searching for the fallen candy.Surprised at how far the candy had gone Laurie knelt down to pick up a piece of chocolate, hearing foot steps she glanced up. In the distance a tall, dark figure was walking towards her. Trying to make sure her eyes weren’t playing tricks on her with the dark Laurie blinked, still the figure was there. Grabbing the candy she ran back to Rachel.
“Rachel,” Laurie screamed.
“Whats wrong,” Rachel asked concerned.
Andrew and the others pulled up in the SUV, Laurie took a look back to see where the figure was now. To her relief it was gone, smiling at Emily she placed the candy in her bag.
“Nothing, I was just trying to catch up to you guys.” Laurie lied.
Rachel stared at her, not believing the words Laurie said she began to look around.“Look what we got,” Tina rolled down the window.“Everclear huh,” Rachel shook her head.========================
Watching as his ster and friends gathered in the vehicle Michael waited, the car began to drive forward. Slowly he turned his masve frame around and made his way back to Laurie’s neighborhood.========================
Standing next to a tree across the street Michael watched as a car pulled up to Rachel’s house, the little girl then ran outde with her. After a short conversation Rachel walked back into her house and the car drove off, turning his attention to the window he watched as his ster walked up the stairs with three of her friends. Looking back at the living room window he could see as two of them remained downstairs.========================
Finishing up the jack-o-lanturn Tina began to light the candle and gently placed it in the hollow pumpkin. Cautiously Steven lifted the pumpkin off the counter, the two of them made their way to the front door. Tina reached up and turned off the porch light before opening the entrance for her boyfriend. Carefully he took his first step onto the porch, slowly he placed the bottom of the pumpkin on the railing.“This looks awesome,” Tina admired their work as Steven turned the pumpkin toward the street. “Definitely the best pumpkin we have made,” Tina smiled at Steven.
Suddenly she felt a hand grab hold of her jacket, vigorously she was tossed into the wall. Instantly her ght became blurred as her head bounced off the wood, she could feel her weight being supported by her holder. Again she was tossed, this time landing on the living room floor.Steven attempted to cry out for help as he witnessed his girlfriend being manhandled, his attempt however was futile. The beast of a man had his hand clasped tightly around his neck in a matter of seconds. A faint crack came from his throat as the man tightened his grip beyond belief, with ease the masked man started to haul Steven into the house. Letting go of his throat he gripped his hair and started to lift him off the ground. Steven attempted to cry out to Tina, only to hear a slight squeal. The powerful grip of the mans hand had crushed his larynx.Watching from the floor Tina began to regain her senses, studying her boyfriends futile attempt to scream her name she tried making it to her feet; The vertigo was still overwhelming. Taking another glance at her boyfriend she watched in horror as the monstrous man impaled his throat with the knife. Steven’s eyes widened with pain, violently the man tore the blade to the other end of his neck almost decapitating him. A light scream escaped as Tina watched him toss the body ade like a wet towel.Reaching her feet she attempted to run for the back door. Stopping after her first step she felt severe pain flush through her body, looking down at her abdomen she could see the blood stained steel protruding from her flesh. Her legs gave out as he tore the blade from her spine, falling to the floor she tried moving her left leg. To her horror the limb wasn’t responding, feeling his hand grip her hair she screamed. Effortlessly she felt him lift her weight as he tossed her over the end table. Landing on top the accent table against the wall she could feel as the structure caved under the pressure of her limp body. Feeling the glass tear into her flesh she cried, within seconds she felt his hands grip her neck. Instantly her oxygen flow was interrupted, looking up into the hollow eyes of the mask she cried.Again he swung the knife down, imbedding the steel into her frame. Repeating this action again she could feel as his grip tightened, savagely he hurled her head against the wall. Feeling as the dry wall cracked under her cheek she cried out, tosng her to the floor once more he stopped momentarily. Feeling the pain vibrate through her body she cried, not being able to move her legs she tried reaching forward. Again her limbs didn’t cooperate, and the tears began to flow quicker. Her cheek was torn open, her nose was gushing blood, her head felt too large for her neck and the stab wounds were pulng with fire. As her body began to give up she felt his hands intertwine in her hair once more. His breaths were hard and terrifying, and she could feel his mask touching her face as he examined her. A sharp pain radiated from the back of her neck, slowly she could feel him press his knife through her throat. Choking on the blood that traveled up from her wound her cries transformed into gargles. Looking into his cold eyes she could feel as the blade finally ripped through the front of her neck, unaffected by his own actions she watched as he mply tilted his head to the de.================================Opening the door the four friends cautiously stepped into the hallway, the noises they had just heard were more than unsettling. Andrew held Laurie tight as they began to make their way down the stairs. As the living room became vible their stomachs turned with fear and nausea, blood painted the entire area. All of the furniture was dismembered, the gore covered wall was cracked, the carpet was stained a deep red. Steven was lying on the floor with his head hanging on by the few remaining inches of flesh on the back of his neck. Tina was lying face down in a pool of her own blood, and standing in front of the door was a colossal being.Making eye contact with her brother Laurie felt the blood drain from her face, her breaths drew short, her eyes began to water and her heart beat faded. After three years of believing he was dead, his masve figure was standing in front of her. Her knees began to shake as her weight became unbearable to support, tightly she gripped the railing to keep her balance. With his eyes never leaving hers she watched as he tossed a collection of broken phones at their feet with sadistic humor.
“Come on,” Rachel yelled at the group seeing his muscles twitch towards them.
The four of them ran back up stairs with no where to go, and hearing his heavy footsteps travel closely behind them their bodies flinched with panic. Slamming the door shut Laurie took a look around, violently the door was almost thrust open by Michael’s power. Andrew and Chris quickly pushed the heavy dresser in front of the doorframe.“Go through the window,” Laurie screamed.
Swiftly Rachel unlocked the window and forced it open, elbowing the screen from its secure location she watched as it fell fifteen feet to the ground.
Caving in the door, Michael effortlessly kicked the dresser out of his way. Trying to avoid the wooden structure Laurie fell to the floor and began to back away. As Michael reached for Laurie Andrew quickly grabbed a pair of scissors from Rachel’s desk, forcefully he impaled the metal blades into Michael’s chest. Tearing the blades from his body, and thrusting his forearm into Andrews torso, Michael’s force lifted him off his feet. Colliding with a ngle shelf secured on the wall he broke through it.In seconds Laurie was by his de helping Andrew to his feet.
“Rachel jump,” She screamed.
Chris began to squeeze through the splintered door, Michael viciously swung the knife into his de. Gripping his head Michael lifted him off his feet and placed his other hand around his mouth, with a loud grunt Michael forced Chris head forward. The x inch metal bracket remaining on the wall from the torn down shelf pierced through Chris’s skull, removing his hands from his victim Michael momentarily watched as he dangled above the floor. Blood began to drip from his eye as his lifeless body twitched.
“Chris,” Rachel yelled in pain.
Forcing Rachel to climb out of the window Laurie then helped Andrew do the same.
“Go ill catch up,” Laurie yelled. “Run,” she watched as her friends left while placing her feet on the storm drain.
Looking back at the drop that awaited her Laurie gripped the window stool, taking a breath she began to jump. Feeling as Michael gripped the shoulder of her shirt she screamed, with his free hand he lifted his astonishingly long blade. Feeling the storm drain cave under her feet Laurie’s weight ripped the shirt from Michael’s hands. With the unexpected fall caung Michael to miss her chest she felt as his blade tore into her shoulder and ripped down her arm. Landing hard on the grass Laurie laid motionless for a moment, it was hard to breath after the collion. Her arm was screaming in pain, and her innards felt as if they were torn from their correct location. Forcing herself to rise she took a look at her blood covered arm, the blade had torn a wide gash in her flesh. She could see a small section of her bone where the muscle had been ripped away, applying pressure on the wound caused her to scream out in pain.
Noticing Michael was gone from the window Laurie began to search for her friends, with no one inght she knew she was alone. Seeing the back door open from her peripheral vion she began to run. If she could make it to her house maybe she could call 9-1-1, she hoped Leah had already left for the party. it was a good thing Andrew and Rachel had gotten separated, now there was a chance they could survive.Running through the neighborhood Laurie finally reached her porch, turning the knob on the front door she realized it was locked. Panic rushed through her as she took a look around, Michael was no where in ght. Running into her back yard Laurie searched for the fake rock that held the spare key, none of them seemed to be the correct finding. Just as she was about to give up she felt the hollow rock beneath her fingers, pulling they key from the compartment she unlocked the backdoor. Quietly clong it she ran to the bar in the kitchen and reached for the phone, touching the broken plastic she dropped it on the floor.“Shit,” Laurie whispered to herself.
Attempting to take a step forward she slipped, catching herself on the counter she looked down at her feet. Through the darkness she could see blood trailing through her living room, swallowing hard she drew in a breath.“Leah,” she said loud enough for herself to hear.
Slowly she took a step forward, making her way through the living room she traveled up the stairs. Keeping her feet as far away from the blood as she could she reached the landing. The red trail lead into Leah’s room, quietly crying Laurie wiped the tears away. Turning the blood covered handle she pushed the door open. Falling back against wall she covered her mouth in shock, Leah was hanging from the ceiling fan. Most of her organs and intestines were hanging over her hollowed abdomen, some had fallen onto the floor beneath her in a pool of blood.
“No,” Laurie cried in a quiet spasm.
Holding back her vomit she forced herself to enter the room, maybe Leah had left her cell phone. Touching the bloody sheets Laurie searched, seeing the charger she pulled on the cord. Picking up the phone connected to the end of the rubber cable she held it in her trembling hands, staring at the crumbled device a small cry escaped in disappointment. Dropping the phone on the bed she made her way around Leah’s carcass, slowly descending the stairs Laurie noticed the backdoor was wide open. Placing both hands over her mouth she shook her head in disbelief, he was already in the house with her.
Noticing Leah’s ster hadn’t came for her sewing supplies Laurie cautiously dropped to her knees. Quietly crawling she made her way to the couch, the only noise filling the room was the slight breeze from outde whistling into the doorway. Pulling the long, thick needle from the box she gripped it tight. Taking a final look around she began her attempt to escape through the back door. Feeling as Michael almost ripped her hair from her head, her body was pitched to the floor. With a yelp of pain Laurie fumbled to reach her feet, before she was able to move Michael had her by her throat.Grinding her teeth together at the pain Laurie began to feel for the needle she dropped. Hearing Michael’s breaths get louder she noticed he was staring into her tear filled eyes. Her face was turning red as she panicked, viciously he shook her with a growling breath. With her lungs burning Laurie was determined to find the needle, kicking her legs she could feel her brain begin to shut down. Finally feeling the cold steel graze her fingers she gripped the needle, with all the force she could muster Laurie swung the sharp point into his neck.Tearing it from his flesh she impaled him again, as his grip loosened she stabbed her brother once more. Air filled her lungs as she fell to the floor, catching herself she kicked Michael in the leg. Watching as he fell to one knee she rose to her feet, running out of the house she quickly escaped through her fence door.“Rachel,” she screamed. “Andrew!”
She wasn’t sure where she was running to, but she had to get away from Michael. Feeling as her face brushed against the low hanging branches on the trees in the alley way Laurie slowed down, looking back she couldn’t see anyone following her. Colliding with a warm body she screamed.
“Baby,” Andrew steadied her. “Are you alright,” He stared into her eyes.
Nodding her head yes Laurie began to cry, she couldn’t stand the thought of long Andrew or Rachel.
“Was that your fucking brother,” Rachel asked in tears.
Not wanting to let the cry escape Laurie nodded.
“What do we do,” Rachel asked the two of them.
“I dunno,” Andrew stated bluntly.
“The college,” Laurie whispered. “That’s were everyone is at, plus they have campus security.” Laurie looked at Andrew.
“Lets go,” Andrew pulled Laurie close as they sprinted towards the college. =====================================
Close behind his ster Michael followed. The cold October sky was broken with the flash of lightning, heavy drops of rain began to fall as the rumble of thunder unleashed them. With the rain gaining volume it became difficult to see until the sky was illuminated. Stopping across the street from campus grounds Michael watched as his prey tried to take shelter in the college. ====================================
“No one is fucking answering,” Rachel yelled as she stopped presng the call box.
“The door is too heavy to break down,” Laurie shouted over the rain.
“We can go to the roof,” Andrew replied. “The roof access door is usually left unlocked,” he pulled the girls in front of him.Looking around Laurie couldn’t make anything out through the rain, as the lightning struck once more she could see the glow off the white mask in the distance. Finding the ladder they quickly ascended, reaching the roof they could see the door a few yards away. Sliding through the collected puddles of rain water on the roof they slowly made their way, twisting the metal handle the door didn’t budge.
“Its locked,” Laurie screamed.
“Move,” Andrew demanded as he lifted the cinder block they used to prop the door open with.
Thrusting it forward the window cracked into a spider web degn, hauling it forward once more the glass caved under the pressure. Running the concrete along the edges before tosng it behind him, he made sure the remaining glass fell from the opening. Pulling his weight up he began to slide in, falling to the small landing he tried opening the door.
“I need a key to unlock it, you’re going to have to climb through.” Andrew spoke to the girls.
“Hurry Laurie,” Rachel’s voice shook from the cold rain.
Lifting herself up she made her way in, carefully Andrew helped her finish her entrance.“Okay Rachel, come on.” Laurie yelled.
Waiting momentarily she peaked out of the window, a behemoth figure was standing in the distance.
Covering her mouth Andrew pulled Laurie close, they could see as Rachel was hiding behind the air conditioning unit. ======================================
Shivering from the rain Rachel tried to remain as still as posble, peaking around the metal structure she could see him making his way towards the access door. Placing her trembling hands into the cold water collecting beneath her she began to crawl to the other de of the unit. Taking another look she watched as he stood in the rain, his masve figure dripping with water; The blade of his knife directing a stream onto the floor. He was studying the broken window, slowly he turned his attention towards Rachel‘s direction. Had he seen her? Gripping her chest and gasping in fear she fought to remain stiff. ========================================
Huddled against the door, Andrew and Laurie sat motionless in fear. Squeezing each others hands they drew in a breath of preparation. ========================================
Gripping the door handle Michael took a look inde, seeing a dark stairwell he was sure they had made their way into the dorm rooms. Tightening his grip Michael prepared to break the door from its hinges. With the flash and sound of striking lighting Michael felt as concrete collided with his skull, the force caused his head to slam against the metal door. Disoriented Michael fell hard to his knees. =======================================
Dropping the block Rachel attempted to retreat to the ladder, long her footing on the slippery roof she felt as his hand grabbed her ankle. Pulling her from her upright potion Rachel fell face first against the concrete, followed by a sharp pain in her hip. Screaming as he ripped the knife from her body she kicked backwards connecting with his groin. Sliding through the water she rose to her feet, the rain caused the blood from the gash in her forehead to drain into her eyes.
With the ladder in reach her heart exploded with suspense, she knew he was close behind her. Reaching for the steel she felt as his enormous hand gripped her skull, with all her strength she tried evading his actions. Her attempt was no match for his, and she felt as her body was pulled backwards onto his impresve blade. Shrieking as he tore the blade from her body she was pulled back even more, landing in a puddle of water she cried out in pain. Rolling onto her back she watched as he swung his blade down, eluding his attack she rolled to the de. Grasping the air condoning unit she got to her feet. If she could put enough distance between them there was a chance she could climb into the broken window.Before she could take another step he had pierced her flesh once more, this time the impact lifted her from the ground. His fingers intertwined in her hair, she could feel her hair ripping from her skull as he held her in front of him. Pulling the blade from her back he snarled demonically as he thrust it forward once more. The paralyzing sensation was repeated, and with each successful attempt gained more power. With one last thrust he held the blade inde her and took a step forward, Rachel was still coherent enough to comprehend her surroundings. Reaching the edge of the building she could see a thirty foot fall to the ground beneath her, the only structure to stop her from reaching the grass would be the concrete steps leading up to the doorway. Feeling his grip tightened she was lifted higher, and with terrifying force propelled towards the ground.========================================
Watching as her blood covered body fell from the roof Michael took a deep breath just before her carcass collided with the pavement lightning lit up the sky. Her body landed on the thick concrete railing of the steps. Blood shot from her skull, covering the asphalt with carnage. He could see as the bones in her neck protruded through her skin, her leg was bent in an inhuman way. The vicinity surrounding her body was stained red, and not even the pouring rain was quick enough to wash it away. ========================================
Door after door the dorms were empty, and the depresng feeling that they were alone sank in.“Laurie,” Andrew looked into her eyes. “If anything happens to me, there is an old dumbwaiter in one of these halls. The frats use it as one of their hazing techniques, it only goes half way down before stopping. You can hide there,” His eyes watered as he stared at her.
Not wanting to look at him she mply nodded, everything she had worked so hard to achieve over the past three years was gone. The thought of long Andrew was something she couldn’t bare.
With nothing but the lightning to allow them to see, Laurie and Andrew stood close together. The rain was still hammering against the windows and roof, caung a steady roar making it harder to hear than usual. Finding the stairway that lead to the floor level common area was hard in the darkness, and wandering around was becoming hopeless. Shaking with anticipation the duo made their way down a dark corridor.As the lightning struck once more the room was momentarily full of light, and standing a few feet in front of them was Michael’s masve figure. As their hearts seized and their lungs tightened they backed away, rounding a corner they stopped. Again darkness swallowed the room.Slowly peaking over the bend Andrew waited for the lightning to strike once more, as the brightness flooded the room Michael was no where in ght.
“Shit,” he whispered.“He is gone isn’t he,” Laurie asked rhetorically with a lent cry.
Not answering the question he gripped her hand, the only way to the stairs was continuing through the corridor. Trying to make out shapes in the darkness they slowly made their way, clinging to the wall. In the distance they could see a faint light, slowly it got closer. Stopping to prepare themselves to run Laurie gripped Andrew’s hand. They could make out a face next to the light, a dark skinned man took another step towards them. It was apparent by his soaked uniform he was a member of the campus security.
“What the fuck is going on here,” The man held his gun next to the flashlight.“Please help,” Laurie cried in a soft whisper.The man was going over them with his light, examining their damaged state.“What is going on,” The security guard asked once more with authority.“Michael Myers is here,” Andrew replied.
The mans face hardened, they were sure he didn’t believe them.As the lightning flashed once more he could see a towering man standing behind them with a white mask, and a enormous blade lifted above them.“Move,” He yelled shooting his gun.
Laurie and Andrew fell to the ground and began to crawl away, they watched as he fired shot after shot into his figure. His heavy body hit the floor, Laurie could feel the vibration beneath her.“Are you kids okay,” the security guard took a step towards them.=======================================
Feeling as he stepped over his body Michael laid stiff, gripping the knife tight he waited.
Slowly tting up he took a look behind him, and watched as the security guard tried to comfort his ster.
“Come on, I will get you to a hospital and call the police. We need to get back to my patrol car,” the man politely gave them orders. =======================================
“Fuck,” Laurie cried.
Michael’s body was gone, knowing the bullets had no effect on him she placed her hand over her mouth to quiet her cries.
“That’s imposble,” the security guard took a step forward.Squatting down where the masked man had fallen he ran his fingers across the floor, feeling the warm liquid he took a glance at his fingers. The deep red blood dripped from their tips, standing he turned towards the others.
“What is it,” Laurie asked.
The security guard was standing still, staring at them without saying a word. Slowly he moved, his body was being lifted in the air. Blood began to pour from his mouth, his body twitched with pain. Lightning stuck once more, and Michael‘s white mask could be seen behind him. Ripping the blade from his back the body fell to the floor, and Michael took a step forward.With Michael blocking the stairway, they had no where to go. Turning down a hallway Andrew tried opening one of the doors, to their dismay it was locked. Before they could try the next door Michael had his hands around Andrew’s shoulders, screaming Laurie backed away.
“Run,” Andrew yelled as he tried to escape Michael’s hold.
Shoving him onto his knees Michael forced his head downward, holding the knife to where the blade’s edge was underneath his fingers Michael began to carve into his neck. The pain flourished through Andrew’s veins, he could hear as his flesh gave away to the steel. He could feel the grinding in his teeth as Michael to slice into his bone, and slowly everything began to fade. ==================================
Tearing his head off the rest of the way Michael tossed it at Laurie as she ran. His hands were dripping with blood, his breaths were heavy with excitement. She was all alone now.
Rushing into one of the open doors Laurie realized she was trapped, and hiding was her only option. Running to the bi-fold closet door she stepped inde, the closet was empty except for a few articles of clothing hanging. Pulling the pole from its socket she forced it into the doorway, caung it to stand diagonal. This would help to stop the doors from opening inward. Sliding down the wall she began to cry to herself, she knew it was up to her to end this. Noticing how quiet it had been she looked up at the closet doors, maybe he wasn’t able to find her.The loud boom of striking lighting jolted Laurie’s nerves, and with the illumination she could see Michael’s masve shadow standing in front of the closet. Hearing as the doors attempted to open her heart fell to her stomach, frantically she began to look around for a way out. Feeling her elbow touch cold metal she looked down, a large air vent next to her tting body.With a loud grunt Michael’s fist broke through the door, caung her to scream. He began to effortlessly cave in the wood and reach forward. With his hand only a few feet away from her she began to twist the bolts on the vent, she could hear as he continued to tear the closet door down. To her relief his masve body was too large to fit under the pole, and with the last bolt falling to the floor she tore the vent from the wall.
Crawling forward she heard as he made his way into the closet, and within seconds his hand was wrapped around her calf. Screaming with panic she began to kick, still his strength overpowered hers. Feeling the blade begin to saw into the flesh above her ankle she yelped in pain, with her free leg she kicked upwards. =====================================
Feeling his sters strike Michael released his grip, blood began to drain from his broken nose. Staring down at the floor he watched as the drops began to stain the carpet, and with a burning rage he began to tear into the wall. ====================================
Hearing the commotion behind her Laurie started to crawl faster, she knew if he could reach her once more she was going to die. Finding another vent she began to push the metal, she could feel as it started to give in. As the vent fell to the floor she pulled herself from the opening, noticing Michael’s savage actions had stopped so did her heart. Quickly opening the door she ran into the hallway, built inde the wall was the dumbwaiter Andrew had told her about.Opening the sliding door she looked into the old wooden box, it was scratched in several places. It looked as if it was used to move small pieces of furniture, with no other apparent option she climbed inde. Presng the small button located on the wall she closed the sliding door, it began to descend at a painfully slow rate. The wood began to moan, the rope began to creek as the old mechanism began to work. Feeling the box shake as if they came to an abrupt stop, Laurie braced herself. Feeling as the dumbwaiter continued its slow movement her heart sank, and with a loud crack Michael’s knife broke through the top of the crate.Hearing as he began to viciously tear into the structure Laurie began to panic, if it didn’t reach the next level she was trapped; easy prey for her hunter. She could feel as the dumbwaiter’s pulley was being tested, the weight of Michael and herself was becoming to much. The wood began to dig into the rails, and with a loud moan the dumbwaiter stopped.The knife continued to tear into the wood, and Michael’s loud grunting was unnerving. She could begin to see his mask through the holes he created, and watched as he started to rip the wood up with his bare hands. Noticing a small amount of light coming from a crack in front of her she lifted the dumbwaiters door, there was a small opening leading to the next floor. The pulley system gave a little more, and the miniature elevator sank further down. The opening was just large enough for her to squeeze through, feeling as his fingers wrapped inde her hair she screamed. Pulling with all her might she could feel her hair being ripped from their follicles.Reaching forward she could feel the floor, pulling harder she began to slip out. His knife was grazing her skin, and his fingers were inches away. The dumbwaiter shifted once more and the soft bounce forced her out, a loud crash filled the room. Inches away from her face was her brothers large hands, he finally broke through the crate. Crawling backwards she noticed a fire axe on the wall.
Ring to her feet she bravely threw her elbow in the glass, feeling as it cracked she moaned in suspense. Again she tossed her elbow forward, this time the glass caved; shredding her skin as her arm entered. Gripping the heavy axe she pulled it from its holder. Swinging it down it stopped in her brothers flesh, the steel was buried in his back. Ripping it from the wound she lifted it once more, swinging it down again it tore into the flesh right below his neck.Feeling the dumbwaiter collapse further she realized he was close to entering the room, again she hauled the axe towards his body. Feeling as it stopped she looked down, his hand was clasped around the metal handle. Pulling it from her grip he impaled the pick into leg, crumbling to her knees Laurie screamed in pain. Pulling the axe from deep gash in her leg she looked forward, she was unbelievably close to her brother. Before she could escape his reach he swung the knife forward, it tore into her collar bone; barely misng her neck.
Gripping her fresh wound she felt as the blood started to pour from the slice, she felt as if she couldn’t continue to fight. If she had been any closer he would have ended her life. Her body was weak, her spirit had been broken, everyone she cared about was massacred in front of her. What was there left to live for?
Again the dumbwaiter fell, and the opening was almost enough for Michael to be able to escape. Realizing her life was too important to give up she gripped the axe once more and watched as he fought to reach her, his knife swinging, his hands reaching. With a angry scream she plunged the axe down once more, the heavy blade severed half of his hand. His knife fell to the floor in front of her, and blood began to paint the area. His hand was twitching, and his determination to reach her was coming to a boiling point. She watched as he put all his energy into breaking through the opening. Changing her attention to the dumbwaiter she could see the rope that was holding it in place, the rails were bending, and the rope was slowly tearing apart. With a final swing she cut through the thick plies of the rope.Instantly the dumbwaiter collapsed, and Michael’s body fell inward. The heavy metal rim of the box crushed into Michael’s neck. Blood gushed as it tore through, Michael’s eyes widened. Falling to the floor Laurie screamed, she couldn’t believe it didn’t decapitate him. His head was spasming, blood was seeping from the holes of the mask. Ferociously she began to kick the wall, trying to force the dumbwaiter to fall. With a squishing crack the heavy box fell to bottom story. Blood covered the wall, dust was flung into the air from the impact of the crate, and rolling towards her was the severed head of her brother.
