[size=90]| Personality | "I couldn't care less what you think of me."
Emmie used to be that annoyingly popular, preppy girl with all the good looks, the perfect personality and a winning smile. Every school has one. That was Emmie. That was her before her brother was tragically killed. The moment the news came that he hadn't made it, it was as though a light had been switched off. Everything about her bubbly, upbeat personality just shut down. In an instant she went from being the most fun-loving, happy teenager on the planet to a shell-shocked, broken mess.

When the initial shock wore off, it was clear that Emmie was not the same person and properly never would be.

Now she is sullen, withdrawn into herself. If it can be avoided then she won't permit any human contact (besides her closest friends) and keeps herself to herself, or within the confines of the group who she knows will protect her. More often than not she appears to be surly and can be seen frowning or scowling in some manner. Although she has such a morose and disheartened personality, there is still a spark of kindness in her. Never would she dream of inflicting her own pain on the others and therefore she never speaks of it, actually since the accident (18 months ago) she has not spoken a single word to anyone. But, her sarcastic personality can still be seen despite the lack of speaking. If she disagrees with something then you will know by her posture, her body language and most definitely her eye rolling.

Most of all, she's angry. Furious at the world for taking the one thing that she cared about. It doesn't take a lot to spark her anger and often she has to be calmed by the group of friends who know the words to soothe her by now. When agitated she paces, smokes and tears at her hair. It is a deep anger than she will never be rid of.

The spark of happiness has all but fizzled out and the only place she finds comfort is her new-found friends. Emmie is very trusting of the people around her, even though she is reluctant to let them love her. She feels so at ease with these people she considered opening her mouth and talking to them recently, but she can never find the words. In her heart she is regretful. After all, they took her in when the rest of the school shunned her silence and change in personality and she has done nothing to thank them, only held her silence. She uses drugs to forget and to block out the pain that she feels in her heart.

[size=90]| History | "I-I just can't."
As stated above, Emmie led a pretty normal life. She was born to two loving parents and an older brother (by five years) who simply adored her from the word go. Both of their parents worked a lot and often the siblings were left together with a sitter. Daniel was always protective over his baby sister and as they grew their bond only strengthened. Of course they bickered and fought, but Emmie loved him like there was no tomorrow. Throughout all of her life she relied on her brother as though he were her only life line. And he never minded. He protected her, he held her when she cried. He became her father-like figure when her real dad was away.

The moment she walked into High School Emmie became the "popular one". She was pretty, charming and a hard worker. It wasn't long before she was captain of the cheer squad and sure to win homecoming queen alongside long term boyfriend Craig. That was until the accident. Emmie received a phone call from her mother one Tuesday lunchtime.

"Mum, I can't talk right now. Jessica and her boyfriend are having a very public break-up."
"Emelia, you need to come home. Now." Her voice caught at the end of the sentence. Emmie stopped dead.
"What's wrong mum?"
"Emelia, just com-"
"Mum! Tell me!" Desperation leaked into Emmie's voice, as she clutched the phone to her ear. Her only thought was "please don't let it be Daniel. Please."
"It's Daniel..."

Emelia had dropped her phone in a state of shock. Craig, her boyfriend, retrieved it and spoke calmly to her mother. He coaxed her into his car with much soothing and gentle words, promising Daniel would be alright. He then drove her to the hospital, where she waited in silence with her parents. When the doctor came out, she knew. Just by the look on his face. A scream worked its way up her chest, only to get lodged in her throat. Instead, she tore passed the doctor and into the room where he lay. He looked perfect, only the bruise on his left temple any sign of the car accident. Throwing herself on him, she demanded that he woke up and stopped this game. It took three nurses to remove her, sedate her and send her home.

Emmie never was the same again. She stopped speaking and turned to drugs without anyone to support her.

And as far as her parents are concerned...They lost two children that day.

It was Seb that took pity on Emmie. He drew her into the group, though it took weeks for her to feel she could trust him and ever longer to trust the others. But now, she's glad that he looked after her when she needed someone the most.


Image



| Relationships | "I don't need men."
Craig left her the moment that she went weird and speechless. He got with her best friend barely a week after Daniel's death. Now, she has no-one who she thinks of in that way.


So begins...

At School After Elizabeth's Birthday




Sebastian wasn't feeling too hot when he woke up at Elizabeth's house with the others. The pills they had taken were probably the best he had ever tried in his life. The hallucinations had been so intense and realistic that Sebastian couldn't tell the difference between reality and hallucination. The best part was that everyone saw the same things as he did and he could see what they saw. They had spent the best birthday ever. . . Morning wasn't as nice.

At first when Sebastian had opened his eyes, everything was normal and he had that same fuzzy feeling at the back of his head just like every morning after a party. He went out on the porch to light a cigarette but then it happened. The whole world in front of him twisted like it was being sucked into one tiny hole at the extent of the horizon. The hallucinations were still there and he wasn't the only one having them. All of his other friends were going through the same thing.

They thought that maybe it was because the drug was much stronger than they had expected and that it would take a day or two to go away. . . The whole weekend went by and none of the friends had stopped seeing the demented world. They had gone to see each other to help one another fight against the scariness. Sebastian had slept over at Seth's place. He hadn't slept throughout the whole night because of the dark visions and disturbing sounds. Their life was a living nightmare without having to worry about the real world, but now school was back and they would have to deal with their visions muddling with reality.

"Hey, Sebastian, you got anything for me?" The voice was familiar. It was Brandon, the porch driving jock in Sebastian's economy class. They weren't on bad terms wince Sebastian would sell him weed ridiculously over price, but Brandon was too rich to care.

Sebastian turned around to look at who he knew was Brandon, but when he saw him it was simply Brandon's steroidal pumped body with a Picasso face. His eyes were triangles pointed in one directing, his mouth was a simple line and his nose was a rectangle. He was Picasso's exceptional work of art mixing both the profile of a person and a person facing forward. Sebastian couldn't help from staring in shock which obviously bothered Brandon who started approaching Sebastian imposingly.

"Um. . . sorry,"Sebastian snapped out of his stupefied state, "I didn't get you any, how about tomorrow."

"Yeah," Brandon's answer was hesitant and questioning so Sebastian left before he became any more suspicious.

The whole hallway was a jungle, and not even a normal one at that. There were plants constantly over growing and dying and when they toppled over Sebastian got scared at moved aside. Evading the hallucinations made him bump into people and only got him even more hysterical. The hallways was continuously being crossed by moving foliage, vines coming down from the ceiling and withering then falling to the ground and melting into it. Branches popped out of the walls causing Sebastian to jerk to the side and hit his head onto someone else's. Things were getting much too oppressing and invasive.

He started to run while rolling on the ground dodging the vigorous plants like a marine in training. He had to go to the group's hideout situated behind the wall of the second floor, girls bathroom, fourth bathroom stall going from the right. He finally reached the bathroom. There was nothing inside, it was a regular bathroom until he opened the door to the fourth bathroom stall. There was a huge monster with teeth as long as an elephant trunk. Every single one of it's teeth were of that length and his body resembled an ape. Sebastian almost let out a shout but he put his hand in his mouth and bit down. He started to bleed but the hallucination did not go away. He tried to get past the creature hoping it was truly only a hallucination but he hit the smelly and sturdy beast.

"Hallucinations aren't supposed to be real, they're only supposed to look real!" Sebastian fell to the floor out of breath.

Finally, he slipped under the creature. He had just enough time to push the unstable block of a dozen white bricks stuck together but not well fixated to the wall next to the toilet. He jumped through hole and quickly put the block of bricks back into the wall like the last piece of a puzzle. It was dark behind the wall and Sebastian's breathing was heavily echoing in the shadows. Life had just taken a turn he had never expected.

The weekend for Emelia had been less than pleasant.

Of course it had started out well enough. The night of Elizabeth's birthday had been one of the best nights of her life, though in reality that wasn't too difficult. Sebastian had scored them some new drug to try that night. It had started out like every other drug that she'd ever taken, a feeling of intense euphoria and like she had no cares in the world. But it soon become clear that this was like nothing she had ever experienced. It caused some of the most epic hallucinations she had ever seen, scarily life-like and in some cases they were beyonf life-like. What had been even better was that they were shared between the group. Whatever Emelia could see, everyone was also seeing. It was the best drug trip they had ever been on. Something in the group shifted and they became closer than they had every been. Emelia loved it. Going on a trip alone was good enough, but having your friends experience the same things was exceptionally special. In the early hours of the morning they finally gave up and slept it off.

However, upon waking the next morning, it became apparent that the drug had not worn off. Emelia could still see the strange world they had shared the night before. And in the cold light of day it terrified her beyond belief. When they'd been drugged and drunk the world had seemed beautiful and wonderful, but now it was dark and daunting. For some reason none of them could shake the drug off. The whole weekend she did not return home. How could she? Instead she remained at Elizabeth's house, curled in the fetal position whilst attempting to block out the weird images that tore across her mind. She is vaguely aware of the others visiting, fighting off their own demons and attempting to comfort each other, but the whole weekend passed in a delirious blur.

Finally on Sunday night she had retreated home. Thankfully her parents were at a conference all weekend and Emelia was left to deal with the hallucinations that now dogged her every move. Shutting out the world, she found a dark cupboard in her house and slept for the night in there. At least sleep blocked out the hallucinations. But she couldn't spend her whole life asleep, could she?

And for that reason, she dragged herself to school, hoping to find some respite in the normality of the situation. Even upon arriving at school it beame obvious that school presented all the difficulties she had faced at home. In first period the floor shifted into a rolling ocean, shifting the tables and desks, with creatures snapping at the ankles of unsuspecting pupils, attentive to their work. Emelia lasted ten minutes before she got up and darted from the class. It didn't stop there. The corridor was an intense jungle, one that she had to battle her way through. Weird looks were shot her way, with people stepping pointedly away from her and muttering behind there hands. But to Emelia they were invisible. She was fighting her way through endless plants that tangled in her path and tried to trip her up. Ducking, she dodged and weaved her way towards their hideout. It was dark there and possibly free of scary hallucinations.

Reaching the bathroom, she tore inside, casting a wary look around. Nothing. Absolutely nothing in here. Relaxing slightly, she made her way to the fourth stall where she cautiously pushed open the door. Bile rose in her throat at the sight of a huge monster with teeth so large that it would tear her in two without a problem. Gulping, Emelia found a sudden lump in the back of her throat.

"It's not real...It's just a hallucination." She though desperately as she edged forwards, her eyes fixated on the creature. It sniffed, turned and caught sight of her. With a roar the thing launched towards her. Emelia acted by pure reflex and raised her bag to hit the thing, even though she knew it wasn't real. Except the bag collided with the creature's side and sent it flying across the stall. Gob-smacked, she watched with an open mouth for a few seconds before she high-tailed it towards the wall. Snatching out of the bricks, she created a hole just big enough to squeeze through and once inside she replaced them. Taking a deep breath, she lent her forehead against the wall. Then a noise stopped her in her tracks.

Freezing where she was, Emelia could hear the breath of another. Head snatching up, she waited until her eyes adjusted and she noticed a familar outline to a figure. Launching herself at Sebastian, she wrapped her arms firmly around his neck, simply glad for someone she knew to be real. Burying her face inbetween his shoulder and neck, she began to silently cry.

This day was turning out to be one of the worst.

Elizabeth, to put it simply, felt like shit. She had woke up with a huge headache, and couldn't remember much of the night before. What had they been doing? Detailed were fuzzy, but she vaguely acknowledged that it was her birthday, and in celebration they took some weird drugs. As memories came back, she remembered how real everything had seemed, even though she knew it was just the drugs. It was awesome, but definitely not worth the headache she had right now. It felt like her head was coming to explode, and like she was going to throw up. She couldn't really figure out why though, she'd never felt after affects this bad.

Getting up, she realized she was asleep in a chair, not her bed. She went upstairs to change, picking out a light blue T-shirt and white skinny jeans. She usually kept her hair in a braid, but couldn't bring herself to take the time to braid her hair. Instead, she ran a brush through it a few times, and just left it down. Looking at the clock, she realized she slept in, and had about five minutes to get to the bus stop. Mumbling swear words under her breath, she went downstairs to grab breakfast and go. And that's when she realized something wasn't right. With the headache, she hadn't noticed before, but everything around her was wrong. She didn't mean just the mess, but the fact that weird objects were everywhere, and looked like the things she saw last night. But the drugs should have worn off, she thought, feeling a bit scared. Looking around, she saw a girl standing in the corner, grinning at her. The grin looked evil, and Liz felt her stomach sink to the floor. The girl disappeared, slowly, and was replaced with some shadowy figure. Officially terrified, Liz bolted from the room, and then from her house, running all the way to the bus stop.

It wasn't real, it couldn't be, but it seemed real, and it was freaking Liz out. The bus drove up almost a minute after she got there, and the ride to school seemed normal besides the weird random colors and objects. Liz kept fidgeting until she got to school, and tried to ignore everything around her. At least, until she heard crying from inside the bathroom. It wasn't crying that surprised her, it was the fact that she recognized the sound.
"Emilia?" she called, slowly peeking into the bathroom. What she found was a creature, obviously not real, looking angry. There was also a built up wall, where Liz heard crying from. Before she could call out again, the creature was on her, trying to... well, Liz wasn't sure what it was exactly trying to do. Kill her, probably. Freaking out, Liz screamed and tried to kick the thing away, freaked out that it could touch her.

In The Hide Out





Shortly after Sebastian arrived in the hide out followed Emelia. When she came through the wall and placed the bricks back in their place she dove onto him and hugged him with tears and all. Sebastian was having a very short reaction to what was happening so before he could tell her it was fine. Ginger popped through the wall as well. Two girls and one guy, a lot of people would see the situation as an advantage, but there was nothing funny about this situation.

"We're going to be alright," Sebastian tightened Emmie against his shoulder, it made him feel more secure as well.

Then it happened, a cry was let out, Sebastian knew exactly whose. Liz. He ran over to the bricks and then heard a gun shot which made him jump back. He knew it was Seth and he also knew what he was shooting at. The beast in the entrance, but Seth mast have been extremely desperate to use his gun on school grounds. Maybe Elizabeth was in a lot of danger. Sebastian had to go something. He clumsily crawled over Emmie and Ginger excusing himself for his manners and then he popped the bricks off the wall.

He barely saw Seth walking away with Liz in his arms. The beast was gone. Maybe Seth's guns had an affect on the creature, maybe they could affect the hallucinations. Nothing was certain but Sebastian ran out of the hiding spot behind the bathroom and called after Liz and Seth.

"Hey wait up! Girls are you coming?" He asked Emelia and Ginger.






Rajani and Itziar floating on a cloud of thick smoke above the bathroom stall, invisible to anyone else.





Rajani had just enjoyed giving terrible visions of the past to Seth, the assassin, the fear of never being able to become stronger. He was just too much of an easy prey. Itziar had created the creature in the bathroom and seeing Seth shooting at the beast had made it perfect to give them hope. After Seth had shot several bullets to the beast she had created, Itziar took the creature back into her soul. Now the stupid kids thought they could kill the hallucination.

"Let's just see how that goes," laughed Itziar in a very monotonic tone.

"I'm enjoying them already, just wait until Adisa and Briar start getting in the game," Rajani had a much sexier and lustful laugh, but just as twisted and sadistic, "Where are they anyways?"

Emmie felt instant comfort when Sebastian tightened his arm around her. She would have felt the same way about any one of their group, had it been them inside of here instead of him. It was only her five friends that could ever offer her any form of solace. The rest of the world could damn well piss off as far as she was concerned. All she needed was her friends and right now, she needed them more than ever. Just as she thought about the others, the bricks were being removed from their slot and another form slipped into the hiding place. Peering up from Seb's shoulder, she offered a small, but sad smile to Ginger. Self-pitying was one thing, but she needed to realise that her friends were experiencing the exact same horrors. Slowly, she reached out and touched Ginger's hand with her fingertips. For Emmie, although small for most, it was a giant gesture of caring.

When a scream echoed from the other side of the wall, Emmie snatched her hand back, her eyes swivelling fearfully in the direction of the noise. It was Liz's scream. Followed promptly by a shout and then three very loud gunshots. Undoubtedly Seth. But just how serious was the situation for him to use his gun? And on school grounds as well... Before she could react, however, Seb had clambered across them and out of the hole. Selfishly, Emmie almost held him back. Who knew of the dangers that were out there? He could be injured, or worse...killed. But then again, her friends were in trouble. Quickly, she followed suit, dusting herself down as she reached the other side. Cautiously, she peered around for the terrifying creature, but it was no longer anywhere to be seen. Visably, Emmie relaxed, her tense body easing up somewhat. At least that thing was gone. That was one less thing for the group to worry about. It still seemed strange to Emmie that it could be physically touched and if that meant they could touch it...then it could touch them. Fear clutched at her heart for a moment. Who had every heard of hallucinations that could be touched and felt? No-one. Because it just didn't happen. Ever.

As she left the stall, she caught a glimpse of Sebastian heading out of the door. Gesturing towards it with her head, she silently informed Ginger to follow. Emmie didn't speak. It was as simple as that. Silently she crossed the bathroom and slipped out of the door, holding it open for her fellow friend. Before them stood Sebastian and Seth, holding a very limp Liz in his arms. Emmie clasped her hands over her mouth and rushed to their side, dropping her hands to her unconscious friend's forehead. There appeared to be a lot of blood coming from a wound. Probing it gently with her fingers, she attemped to see the damage. Not that she would know what to do, but she felt like she must do something. Wordlessly, her eyes focused on Seth, asking a silent, but important question: "Are you alright?"

Next, she looked to Sebastian and shrugged her shoulders in a "What do we do now?" kind of question.

Seth could hear sirens as he walked farther and farther away from the hideout. Could Liz hear them? Were they real sirens? Or was it all just part of the imaginary hell they were a part of?Seth’s mind was racing with so many questions that he almost didn’t hear Liz say, “Hey, Seth…”

“Yeah Liz?” Seth asked in a whisper not looking at her but looking straight where he was going. “Liz?” Seth asked once more with a slightly louder tone of voice till he looked down and saw that Liz had passed out.

“Liz!?! Liz, wake up!” Seth said worriedly, slightly shaking her to wake her up.

“Arghhh what am I going to do???” Seth thought frantically. “Liz needs help, but I can’t bring her to the nurse! What am I going to say? A monster tried to eat my friend and I shot it and it disappeared? She’ll think I’m nuts! Plus, the fact that I have a gun means I can go to prison! And what if there’s more of them? What am I going to do then?”

Seth kept walking trying not to attract attention in the halls and avoiding being seen. He nearly ran when he heard “Hey wait up!” but he recognized the voice. It was Seb, followed by Emmie and Ginger. Seth was relieved to see that his friends were alright, but knew he couldn’t relax for long. They had to get out of school, and they had to get help. Seth turned around and Emmie clasped her hands over her mouth upon seeing her friend limp in his arms. She rushed to their side and placed her hands on Liz’s forehead. Then Emmie gently pressed her on Liz’s wound with her fingers, probably examining how badly hurt she was. Afterwards, her eyes switched over to Seth with the look of wondering whether he was alright.

“I’m fine, but Liz…she’s hurt really badly. The monster’s tooth was able to scrape at her arm. What are we going to do Seb? She’s out cold and it looks like I’m the monster!”

"Elizabeth...." the cold voice spoke, echoing in her head. She knew she wasn't awake, everything was too weird. Then again, things had been weird when she was awake, but they had seemed solid. Everything around her right now was fuzzy. Objects fading in and out, knic-knacks moving away or even disappearing as she tried to grab at them Someone was following her, but she couldn't see them or even run, and it bugged her more than anything else. She was scared, sure, but she knew it wasn't real. She was annoyed she couldn't wake up. Liz then felt a sharp pain in her arm. Looking at it, she noticed the injury she got before wasn't there, but she could feel the pain from it. But why, it hadn't been there a minute before? Following the pain were faint voices that she couldn't really make out, but they kept getting clearer as she waited.
She didn't feel like she was being chased anymore, and everything was eerily quiet except for the muffled voices. Then she heard one word that stood out most of all.
Monster. Just after hearing it, something grabbed her from behind, causing her to scream and kick as it dragged her backwards to god knows what. And then she saw light.

Seth was still holding her, but others were there now, and Emmie was looking at her arm. Liz felt a little relaxed, knwoing it was probably her friend who touched the wound. She then realized that she was still struggling. At least, her body was, though her mind felt strangely calm.

"Sorry," she mumbled, forcing herself to stay still. Looking around, she saw the others, though they looked just as shaken as her and Seth. "Were you guys behind that wall...?"

In The Hallway With Seth And The Others




Sebastian finally caught up with Seth and Liz who was blacked out. Whatever had happened got Seth into a panic and had wounded Liz.

"I’m fine, but Liz. . . she’s hurt really badly. The monster’s tooth was able to scrape at her arm. What are we going to do Seb? She’s out cold and it looks like I’m the monster!" Seth was starting to have a break down.

Sebstian immediately grabbed both of his shoulders and forced their eyes to lock together, "Get it together man! We're fine, this all just a big ugly nightmare. You're not a monster, Liz is going to be alright and we're not going to keep on seeing these things for long."

There was Sebastian spreading out the positive energy even though he too was shitting his pants at everything. He knew that someone had to keep everyone together. Emmie arrived with looks that said everything, obviously her question to Seth was answered pretty clearly, he wasn't alright but Sebastian was doing everything in his power to get him back into shape. And then Emelia looked at Sebastian in that, "What do we do now?" look.

"We stay strong, Emmie, we stay strong and do what we do best, stick together."

Liz woke up. Her eyes were small but they were darn well open and that was enough to get Sebastian's attention. He grabbed her hand and held it tightly. She seemed to be suffering so much but oddly her voice said otherwise.

"Sorry," Liz mumbled, "Were you guys behind the wall?"

Even though what Liz just said was in no way funny, Ginger who was standing behind Sebastian let out a squeaky laugh which made him smile. They were in the middle of a terrible situation, where nothing and everything seemed real. How could they laugh you're probably thinking? Well, it's all they had left, it was all that seemed real enough at the time.

"Yes, yes we were," replied Ginger. Sebastian added a nod to it.

"Hey Sebastian," Brandon was back with his football suit on all dirty, he must have had practice, "what is up with you guys? Having more bad trips? And why is your buddy carrying Elizabeth?"

That was a bad sign. Either it meant that Brandon had official gotten brain damage or he simply could not see Elizabeth's wound. What was going on?

"We stay strong, Emmie, we stay strong and do what we do best, stick together."

Emmie regarded Seb silently, agreeing with just a simple nod her head. Of course, he was right. They were all going through the same thing and they needed to remain together and keep each other strong. And right now, Liz was the one in danger. The blood coming from her arm was making Emmie feel slightly sick. Surely if she lost any more then she was going to be in serious danger. She didn't want to think about it. They had to get their friend out of there and get her some help. A brief conversation passed between the rest of the group, and although she felt no inclination to join in she was watched with careful eyes. Until Brandon walked up, then her eyes narrowed suspiciously and her stance changed to one of tension.

Emmie knew Brandon exceptionally well. At least she had known Brandon. Back when Emmie was the pretty little cheerleader with all the friends. Brandon was Craig's best friend, but since Daniel's death her had barely said one word to her. Not that she cared. Those weren't her real friends. She had found her real friends when she went through her bad patch. They were the ones who pieced her slowly back together when she was falling apart. They're the ones who haven't shunned her despite her silence and furious bursts of anger. True friends were the ones that looked after her.

Surprise flickered over her face when Brandon questioned what was wrong with Liz. Could he not see the gaping wound? Blinking, she pointed towards Liz's arm, but the blank look of Brandon's face suggested that he didn't have a clue what she was pointing out. Frowning, Emmie studied his features for any sign that he was messing with them. Nothing. Not a single twitch or muscle movement. He couldn't see the injury. Grabbing Seb's wrist in one hand and Ginger's in the hand, she tugged them towards the door, pushing roughly past Brandon. Jerking her head, she indicated for Seth to follow with Liz. They had to get out of there and discover what was going on for themselves. School was the last place that they needed to be right then. But where could they go? Her parents were still out of town, perhaps they could gather at her place and figure everything out.

Seth’s mind was racing thinking of all of the possible bad scenarios when Seb grabbed his shoulders, locked eyes, and reassured him.

“Get it together man! We’re fine, this is all just a big ugly nightmare. You’re not a monster, Liz is going to be alright and we’re not going to keep on seeing these things for long.”

Seth was glad that Seb could say such reassuring words in times like this. Seb was strong and positive even when times were bad, just like Seth’s father was. It was his leadership and hope that kept the group together when times were tough like now.

“We stay strong, Emmie, we stay strong and do what we do best, stick together.”

After that, Liz woke up and Seth’s countenance went from worry to relief.
“Sorry,” Liz mumbled, “Were you guys behind the wall?”
Ginger laughed a hysterical squeaky sound and replied, “Yes, yes we were.”

Although laughter seemed to be out of place in their dire situation, it was the only way they can comfort each other. Seth couldn't have asked for better friends to be with in a situation like this and decided it was time to stop worrying and start doing.
Brandon then came over with a sullied football jersey.

‘What is up with you guys? Having more bad trips? And why is your buddy carrying Elizabeth?”

Seth started glaring at Brandon with eyes full of anger, but then relaxed them after realizing he must not have been able to see the wound because it was inflicted by the monster. If others could not see the monster, perhaps the monster’s actions did not exist to them as well. Seth gritted his teeth, holding back on trying to explain to Brandon a situation that didn't exist to him. Emmie then grabbed Seb and Ginger and tugged them towards the door. She made a jerking motion with her head towards the door, meaning that Seth must bring Liz over. Perhaps the gang had to get out of school and figure out what the deal with the drug was. Emmie seems to want to hold the meeting at her place.

While walking to Emmie’s place, Seth would glance at Liz’s wound occasionally. The wound raised so many questions. He was reassured that since the wound did not seem to exist for Brandon, that would mean the supposed “gun wound” scenario would not be suspected. However, it also meant they were on their own to care for Liz. He wondered whether ordinary objects could even have any effect on Liz, since it seemed the monster was nonexistent to everything except for them. However, there was one lingering question on Seth’s mind that was the key to their horrible situation. Once they arrived at Emmie’s empty pad Seth decided to be blunt.

“So Seb, where did you get the pills?”

At Emilia's House




"Liz is a bit dehydrated and is weak in her legs, so she needed to be carried before she passed out," Ginger lied peacefully to Brandon which put a quiet smile on Sebastian's face.

Everyone looked at Brandon then at Elizabeth's wound. If he couldn't see up but they could then things were weird. Above all, if Liz could feel the pain but no one could even have proof that her pain was from an actual flesh wound then things weren't looking bad. Emmie grabbed both Sebastian and Ginger then headed out. She gestured for Seth to follow them with Liz. They all headed to Emmie's house and when they arrived the big question was asked by Seth;

"So Seb, where did you get the pills?"

For a second he just laughed but his smile turned to a frown and he flopped onto the couch with his head held in her hands. He started feeling the guilt. Because of his choice in dealers they were heading towards what felt to him like an eternity of suffering.

"It was this new guy, he gave them to a very reasonable price," Sebastian stared at the floor wide eyed and gritted his teeth, "I should have been more careful, I am so sorry."




Adisa and Briar




Adisa stood outside the door of Emilia's home he had a very pleased grin plastered onto his face his hand was shaking crazily as he questioned himself, "Open it? Don't open it. Open it? Don't open it."

"Open the damn door Adisa," said Briar as he busted through the entrance and opened his arms widely like a magician would before a show, "Hello young stupid druggies, welcome to Imaginerium!"

Emelia had led her friends back to her house, winding through the streets until they reached the pretty little two storey building on a perfect street. She hated it here, but it was her parents home and she had nowhere else to go. Most of the time she stayed at one of the group's houses in order to avoid her parents. Whenever they looked at her these days it was with such regret and pity that it made her feel sick. Nothing they said could heal the wounds left by the death of her brother and looking at them every day only sought to make her feel worse. That said, they were out of town most of the time. Her father had thrown himself into his work since the accident and her mother accompanied him everywhere. Emmie was left alone. Just the way she liked it.

Shutting the door behind everyone, she didn't think to lock it. No-one would come looking for them. Not many people cared about the welfare of the druggies in the school. Turning to her friends, she looked expectantly at Seb when Seth asked him where the drugs had come from. It wasn't his fault. It could have happened to any of them. In response, she gave a light who-could-have-known shrug of her shoulders and set about finding some blankets for Liz. Laying one over her friend, who was now resting on the bed, she patted Liz's shoulder with a concerned look on her face. Her friends meant a lot to her and she would hate to lose any of them, especially to something that was not real.

"Open the damn door Adisa!" Emmie started at the sudden voice outside of her door. Turning on her heel, she watched as two men - wait, were they men? - walked smoothly into her house, one with his arms open wide. Her skin instantly began to itch at the sight of the pair and the hair on the back of her neck stood on end. Emmie had a bad feeling about these people. Stepping up, she stood in front of her friends, pushing them backwards a few steps. This was her house after all and she would be damned if anyone thought they could just storm in here and hurt them.

"Hello young stupid druggies, welcome to Imaginerium!"

Frowning, Emmie studied them carefully. Imaginerium? What the hell was that? It wasn't a word that she had heard before. These people set her teeth on edge and worry seeped into her chest. She glanced at Seb in a questioning manner. Was one of these people who he brought the drugs off? Were they hear to gloat? Or perhaps sell them more? Whatever it was, she didn't look the look or feel of them one little bit. Pointedly, she looked at them and then the door, jerking her head a little. It clearly indicated time for you to leave.

Ginger frowned and sat down next to Seb, she grabbed his and leaned her head on his shoulder "It's okay Seb, im sure any one of us would have done the same thing... don't put all the blame on yourself." Ginger said softly and squeezed his hand. She smiled at him and let go of his hand and started pacing all around.

Then two people burst threw the door "Hello young stupid druggies, welcome to Imaginerium!" one man said. Ginger blinked Imaginerium? What the hell was that? Who are these people? Is this the day I die? All these questions were running threw Gingers mind, but she opted for standing straight and faking confidence "First question, what is Imaginerium? And second, who are you?" Ginger asked quietly and turned beet red.

The two men barging in was another surprise that Sebastian had a hard time taking in. Were they real? Were they just another part of his twisted hallucinations? The guy with the black suit and open arms made him think it was just a vision. No one in their sane mind would waltz into someone's house with that sort of entry. Then again, Sebastian had done much weirder things and he was living, breathing and palpable.

The two men were so different in the way they moved and scoured the house. The one in the suit was actually very rude even though he looked more like the gentleman type. He was picking up anything he could lay his hands on. Books, decorations, furniture. . . Anything at all and he gave a little expression of either pleasure or flat out disgust to point out his opinion of the object he was making contact with.

The other man, dressed as a punk rocker with necklaces bracelets, was a bit more quiet and less curious. He just came into the house and flopped onto a couch while his buddy wandered around. The punk rocker stared at each and everyone one of the friends as if trying to discover their weak spot, their current feelings and whatnot.

"What's Imaginerium? Who are you? Why the hell are you here?" Sebastian blurted out after the suited man disgusted him when he started playing with the family pictures.

The guy was staring at them and sniffing them like he was thinking about eating the pictures. Sebastian was freaked out and repulsed by the man. Apparently, he wasn't the only one who was a bit nervous, Ginger came over and sat next to him the grabbed him. The girl was so gentle and so quiet, he liked her company a lot. She told him that everything was okay and oddly those simple words coming from her mean the world to him so he gave her a slight smile.




Adisa and Briar




Adisa and Briar just made themselves at home while the teenagers stared at them questioningly. What were two random guys doing at their house? That was probably one of the questions they were asking themselves. Adisa kept on making theories about their thoughts. He loved trying to guess what people were thinking then he makes stories up in his mind.

Briar just walked around, he liked getting an actual feel of the life his prey was living. He felt quite fastidious about the girl. . . um. . . Emilia was her name's way of living. He liked the picture though. Clearly there was a missing brother. There were several pictures in which the young girl was smiling along side of an older brother but then suddenly no more pictures of the big boy and only sad faces of the girl.

"How splendid!" Briar smiled after sniffing the dust off a certain framed picture where Emilia was alone and sad.

Then the young boy, Sebastian, the odd ball of the group, asked his series of questions that all his other friends were thinking as well. Briar set down the picture and went over to stand next to Adisa who answered the first question.

"Imaginerium is a parallel world to yours. It is the world of illusions and we as well and two others, are the only ones to be living in it. Except now you are in it with us but you are also in the Human world. Confusing isn't it."

Briar laughed at Adisa's teasing and then answered to the other questions, "We are call Imaginerium Fay, pretty much we are the only ones who can survive in this parallel world. And we are here to count you. One, two. . . five. Hm, that's going to be a tough share."

Adisa stated to smile but then turned to a frown when he felt the glare of Emilia set on Briar and himself. It was quite an unpleasant glare that seemed to say, "get out of my house". Adisa didn't not like it so he made eyes contact with her. He showed her a flash of bad memories and some visions of what could happen to her and her friends if she didn't stop staring. He showed her Briar and himself getting somewhat angry enough to rip off Elizabeth's head and crush every bone in Seth's body before she could even call out for help. With that Adisa grinned and went back to the questions as if what Emilia was seeing was not his fault.

Emelia had continued to glare at the two men who had so rudely barged into her home. She kept her eyes narrowed throughout their whole explanation of what was happening to the five of them. It began to make sense, though most of her didn't want to believe it. All of it sounded too far-fetched, too out of this world. But by the sounds of it, this entire situation was out of this world. Slowly, she positioned herself in front of her friends who were sat on the sofa, as though to protect them from the two strange men. They were going to count them? And five was a difficult number to share. Instantly it all made sense. Emelia clenched her hands into fists and increased the intensity of her gaze.

But in that moment, one of them turned and fixed his eyes upon her. Although she tried to hold onto his stare, her mind was flooded with a barrage of images. Tearing her eyes away, she screwed them up and pressed her hands to her head in distress as endless images harassed her mind. Sinking to her knees, her mouth opened in a silent scream.

"DANIEL!" She was looking at her brother's still form. "DANIEL. WAKE UP! Please...Please don't leave me! Daniel." A sob escaped her lips as she shook his lifeless body. But he didn't wake up. He would never look at her with those loving eyes again.

Flashes of the following months. Walking alone. Never saying a word. Losing all of her friends. Losing everything she had ever known. Her parents growing further apart for her. The regret and pain in their eyes. The guilt on their faces. And finally the resentment.

The two men grabbing Elizabeth and mercilessly tearing her head from her shoulders, tossing it over their shoulders without a second thought. All the blood on the carpet. Her lifeless body just laying there without her head.

Next they grabbed Seth and chucked him across the room, smashing every single bone in his body. He fell to the floor with a pained sound escaping his lips. He wasn't dead, but in immense agony. She couldn't help him. She couldn't help any of them.


Other images of dreadful things flashed across her mind, both past and supposed future. She could do nothing against the assault, only rest her head against her knees and grip her hair in her hands. Her whole body shook from head to toe and she bit her arm to stop the screams.

Seth observed the strange and rude behavior of the two men. The well dressed man crept around Emelia’s house, picking up random objects as though he thought Emelia wouldn’t mind at all. It got even weirder when the man sniffed at Emelia’s family pictures as though they were appetizing meals he was so tempted to gobble up. Seth glanced at Emelia, wondering how she felt having these two men barge in her place, and from her glare, Seth can imagine how much she wanted them to get out.

Soon, Ginger spoke up asking about what Imaginerium was and who they were. Then Seb added to her inquiries by asking, What’s Imaginerium? Who are you? Why the hell are you here?” According to the men the group was in a parallel world called Imaginerium filled with illusions and at the same time they inhabited the human world. The men were called “Imaginerium Fay” who can survive in the parallel world. And the reason the men were in the group’s presence was to count them.

Wait, did I hear that right? Seth asked himself. They want to count us? For what?

“One, two…five. Hm, that’s going to be a tough share.”

A tough share…? Seth thought. He remembered the man said there were two others like them. He recalled the man’s actions, particularly the way he savored the smell of the picture, and then he realized in horror why they were going to be “a tough share.”

The punk rock Imaginerium Fay suddenly turned to glare at Emelia who positioned herself in front of everyone on the sofa. Suddenly tears were streaming from her eyes. She wiped them away and held her head as she opened her lips in the form of a scream with no sound. Emelia continued this way until she rested her head against her knees and grabbed a bunch of her hair. Her whole body was shaking eerily and she suddenly bit her arm. Seth grabbed a hold of the arm that Emelia was biting into, looked into her eyes stricken with a mixture of fear and sorrow, and tried to lightly shake her to wake her from her nightmares.

Emelia?? Emelia!?! Are you alright? Snap out of it!! Emelia!?!

Seth turned to look back at the punk rock Imaginerium Fay on the other couch and saw that he had a ghastly grin on his face. Seth clenched his fists, thinking perhaps he had something to do with Emelia’s suffering, but looked back at Emelia. He wanted to make sure that whether his hunch was right or not that he wouldn’t upset this humanoid looking creature and provoke it from further harming any of the others.

Seth wondered whether the group should stay and keep asking for questions to better understand their situation or leave and find a place away from these two Imaginerium Fay that seem to eye them peculiarly, unless it was his imagination. He figured they could try to jump out the window in the back and run out through the backyard or run upstairs and get out of the window leading to the fire escape. Still he remembered what happened at school and the Imaginerium Fay’s words and wondered whether that would be a smart idea, seeing as everything was being tied to illusions and their escapes could lead to dead ends in their eyes. There was also Liz who was still badly injured and Emelia who was trapped in a nightmare inside her head. Still he didn’t want to stay around and ask questions until the Imaginerium Fay decide to…no, he didn’t want to think about that. Seth decided to glance at his friends with a look asking, “What now?” while trying to evade the attention of the Imaginerium Fay.

The new drug that Sebastian came with was utterly wonderful, Lucas had never taken anything even close to it and when all the others seemed to see the same thing. It was amazing. The hallucinations were colourful and weird, like a jungle, a desert or a plain. Plants seemed to rise all around them from nowhere, from the floor, out of the walls and hanging from the roof. The drug should wear off after a few hours or a day but as he stayed at Liz's place and woke up next day it hadn't wore off at all. Maybe it was too strong? Take some time to wear off? He spent the whole weekend at her place until they all actually had to go home for school tomorrow.

When Lucas left, the whole world was still alive. Just like it had been at Li'z place. The roads seemed not to follow any particular way, the lamp post moved with the wind but changed to something. A plant with a mouth? Like those who eat insects. He shook his head and sighed. Everything was just a hallucinations and he knew his way home with even closed eyes, he'd been at everyone's place a lot of times since he joined them.
He tried not to pay much attention on what happen around him, how the plants grew and the road spinning, curling and here and there animals, or no. Beast appeared. They must be some kind of beasts. They were too different from animals that lived here. He pressed down his hands in his pockets and looked down at the ground, grass and colourful flowers appeared were he stepped on the ground.

It took a while for him to arrive at home, he could have asked for a drive home or even take his bike but he was more of a walking person. Enjoyed to walk around no matter what weather was. As he slowly approached his home which seemed to actually look normal. Like it always did but there was something that made him stop in his tracks. Something stood on the walkway to the door. He continued to walk, carefully now because even if everything just was a hallucination, his mind would still think it was real. The beast looked like a purple and green striped deer with huge antlers, moss and small flowers growing on them and glowing yellow eyes. It looked quite beautiful, like a fantasy deer. He chuckled softly for himself, it was quite amusing how real everything looked. He went to walk pass it but froze when he felt it's breath on his cheek. Hallucination, it's just a hallucination. His minded screamed as he turned to the deer, slowly reaching for the deer's muzzle and felt the warm and wet breath on his hand. He held his breath as he got closer and closer and when he almost placed his hand on the muzzle, the deer grew sharp black teeth and snapped at him. He jerked away and a scream almost forced it's way up but he manage to push it down. Holding his breath as he quickly moved to the door, not daring to release it until he turned around and the deer stood still at it's place, staring at him.
He took a few deep breaths. He could handle this, there's nothing to freak out about. He can handle scary or stressed or anything at all with a calm mind but this? It was really fucking scary. A smile tugged at his lips, he swore. Nothing he usually did. He turned again and open the door, carefully walking inside so that his parents wouldn't hear him. He needed to sleep it off for tomorrow, how would he manage school if it continued? People would probably think he finally lost his mind or something. He passed the living room and kitchen, almost at the stairs when he heard a voice behind him.

"Oi, freak. Were have you been? You said you would come back yesterday, you know. Saturday not Sunday." Sean said mockingly and Lucas rolled his eyes.
"I'm sorry but I stayed a bit longer, Liz had the whole house for herself." Lucas answered without turning.
"Not that I care but what the fuck was that on the porch? You taking something? Because you paled and reached for something and then jerked away. I'll tell mom you're on drugs or some shit."
Lucas sighed deeply and finally turned around but froze. This was not happening. Were his asshole for a brother should stand, stood a dead man. Or no, it wasn't a dead man but the flesh was burnt, dark and rotten. Black eyes with blood running down from them, no nose, one side of the jaw torn up so you could see the teeth, well what was left of them. Torn clothes. He looked just like a zombie but his voice was just the same.
"What are you staring at faggot?" The voice had changed to something raspy, gurgling and that was it. The walls around them seemed to rot and it was too much for Lucas to take, he open his mouth to something, anything but what came out was a scream and he stumbled. Fell to the ground before bolting up and run out from there. Sean grabbed his arm to stop him.
"What the fuck is wrong with you?" The raspy, gurgling voice said that was not his brother but a creature of death and decay. He screamed again in terror and manage to wretch free, run out from there and out on the street. Everything seemed to grow hostile and horrible around him, it was bad. He had no idea what to think or anything until he heard the horn from a car and everything happen in slow motion. The car looked normal and he just stared at it, couldn't move but luckily it only barely touched him, knocked him to the side and he hit his head on the pavement.

He thought he heard voices but the ringing in his ears was too loud, blurry figures around him. Everything seemed to slowly darken around him and then suddenly he woke up in a unknown room. He sat up suddenly and regretted it immediately, his head was pounding. Groaning he laid down again when a voice startled him.
"So finally awaken? Mom will kill you for this." His brother said from the side and Lucas sighed deeply. Great. He was at the hospital. What happen? He tried to think back, he had been screaming and been terrified then a car came from somewhere. It must have hit him. God, his head hurt.
"Did you call them?" He asked and looked towards his brother.
"Of course I did. But I didn't tell her the whole thing. What the heck was that back there? You screamed when you looked at me and then ran out, I mean. Dude. Whatever your on, you stop right now or I will tell mom and they'll send you away." Sean said with a slight growl.
"I went mental, that's it. Too much drinking and way to little sleep. You should know how a wild weekend goes." Lucas said with a shrug. "How long will I be here? How long have I even been here?" He asked with a frown and Sean shrugged.
"I called for a doctor when it seemed you would wake up, so they'll probably check you. You didn't hit your head that bad. You were just out of it for around a hour." Sean said as he stood up and stretched.
It didn't take long until a doctor came in and smiled at them. He told them how things were. That Lucas was staying over the night. They would see how he felt the next day and more, but it wasn't for sure that he could leave the next day. Lucas just groaned a little at the thought, spend a night here. And his mother. She will go crazy, no she is already. It won't take long before they arrive and hell goes loose. Not really but almost, he wondered what his father would say? Never mind, he would think of that later. Rest sounded great now. At least the hallucinations weren't in this room. Freaking hell those things was scary.
His parents were there for a rather short time due to the exhaustion Lucas felt. He still felt a bit dizzy but the headache was much worse then some dizziness. He could really take dizziness any day then a bad headache. He slept a bit, well as much as he could with a pounding head but he had gotten some wicked medication against it so he actually could sleep a few hours. Maybe he had been too exhausted to even notice the weirdness here? Or maybe it just gave him a rest? No, it most have gone away by now. Thank the gods for that. Not that he's really religious but you know, things you just say. By the next day he felt better, his headache was still there but no dizziness so he was allowed to leave the hospital. His parents were working so his brother picked him up.

"If you do one more stunt like this again, I'll leave you there." Sean said when they were in his car and Lucas only sighed. He picked up his cellphone, but it was dead. The hallucinations hadn't left at all and shocked him when he walked out from the hospital. It was awful, what if they never left? How would he be able to live like this? He couldn't call anyone so decided to go to the one who lived closest and it happen to be Emelia's place.
"Could you drive me to Emelia's house? I can walk home from there, just want to talk to her about school things." Lucas said and hoped that his brother would do as he asked.
"Okey, but I won't pick you up there. Get home by yourself." Sean had only answered and it was good enough for him.

As soon as they came to Emelia's house and Lucas got out off the car, Sean drove quickly away from there. Did they others still have the hallucinations? He really hoped that or he actually finally went mental, which wouldn't surprise him but you could always hope. He touched the back off his head and felt the stitches as he walked to the door. He was about to knock on the door when he heard something from the inside. He opened it up slowly.
"Hey, Emmie. I think I'm going mental or-" He stopped talking when he got in and saw the others. Emelia on the ground with Seth next to her. He had never seen her so pale and scared before. What was happening? He stood still at the door, looking from Emelia to Ginger then Sebastian. Liz were nowhere to be seen. There was something really wrong here. Should he go in or, wee were should he go? He was pretty alone without them and whatever they saw, he doubted that the police or anyone else could see it all. Whatever they were staring at in the living room He carefully walked inside to them and saw the two men in the living room. Who the hell were they? Were did they come from? Any why were the others just staring at them.
"Who are those two?" He whispered to Sebastian.

A nightmare. Everything was just a nightmare. Sebastian didn't want to believe what the well dressed man was saying. It was just a hypothesis, but Sebastian guessed that they were being counted to see who would be killed. The monster back in the bathroom stall was a joke compared to these two men. They made Sebastian feel oppressed, forced into lowering his head and shutting up for once in his life.

Sebastian was so caught up in his own fear that he didn't notice the rocker man glare at Emilia. The poor girl fell to the floor. Seth had a faster reaction to what happened than Sebastian. He rushed toward her and kept close. So did Ginger. But Sebastian was too scared to move. His whole body was in rejection with itself. The fear, the cowardice, the resent toward the men, Sebastian was shaking from all of those feelings. He couldn't get himself to move from the couch because he didn't know what the man had done to Emelia to cause her to go into such shock. But Sebastian also wanted to pounce on the man and rip his throat out.

"What now?" Asked Seth to anyone who could answer.

Sebastian wasn't one of those capable of answering, he was still gritting his teeth from anger and yet letting them shake from his distress. He didn't know what next, there wasn't much to do against these sort of people. Were they even people? And what sort of people were they? Why did Sebastian have such a terrible feeling around them?

"Why us?... I mean I know we're not very good kids, but does that mean we really have to...." Ginger looked at the men and asked with quivering in her voice.

Lucas unexpectedly opened the door and stopped in his sentence. Seeing two strangers in your friend's house and your concerned friend on the floor pale as the dead was pretty perturbing. Lucas walked in and passed the two men who had oddly happy cheery expression son their face. Then Lucas asked Sebastian who they were.

"They're Imaginerium Fay, creatures of this world we're stuck in, the world where we see hallucinations," explained Sebastian. Well at least he told him what he had understood.




Adisa and Briar





"Adisa, that's enough," Briar warned Adisa with a menacing stare.

Briar heard what Seth had said about what to do next so he approached the boy a little and kept eye contact, "What now? Well it's simple, you let us have our fun and you just do what you do best as humans. Be afraid."

Adisa laughed in the background and answered Ginger's following question, "It has nothing to do with you being good or bad, it just has to do with your luck and you are very unlucky."

The two looked at each other in content then walked in the last one from the group. Briar counted Lucas and suddenly his sinister grin turned to a full blown grimace. Now the numbers were equaled out and that made both Briar and Adisa feel better.

"Well, we no longer need to disturb you, just live your not so normal life anymore and we might just see each other again. Just not for a talk."

The two left laughing and leaving the door open, not caring about what they were leaving behind them. They left in the blink of an eye like instant transportation or something.

Unfortunately, the Imaginerium Fay seemed to have heard him and said that they had to do what they can do best as humans, “Be afraid.” Seth thought to himself about what the Fay wanted. They wanted the gang to fear them, to despise them, to cower at their every thought of them, because eventually it wouldn’t matter when they were gobbled up and in their stomachs. Although fear was the last thing that Seth wanted to encompass in himself, it was the main thing running through his system and he couldn’t help but shiver a little at the unsettling feeling present.

“Why us?” Ginger asked. “I mean I know we’re not very good kids, but does that mean we really have to…” Ginger trailed off trembling as she spoke. The Fay laughed at the question and replied that the group’s luck chose them and that unfortunately, Lady Luck was not on their side. Suddenly Lucas entered the room, producing sinister grins on the two Fay, probably because there were more of them to consume. It seemed Lucas was in the same situation as Seth and the others were because he asked Sebastian who they were, who explained everything to him.

“Well, we no longer need to disturb you. Just live your not so normal life anymore and we might just see each other again. Just not for a talk.”

With that said, the two Fay left behind in a flash. Seth realized that they needed to think of something before the Imaginerium Fay come back to eliminate each of them. It seemed Ginger was thinking under the same lines because after she exploded in a heat, she stood up, paced around the room, and said they needed to think of a plan, calmly and rationally. Seth gripped his gun for the first time since he left the school grounds. He wondered why he didn’t think of using his revolver or at least his knife, but then again he didn’t want to endanger his friends. If what the Fay said was true, they were trapped in hallucinations that others were not experiencing, but were very real to them. Seth then wondered why his gun was able to penetrate the monster’s skin back at the school, or whether that was all a lie spun by the world itself. He wondered if his weaponry would be of any use, or if there could be any object he can use to manipulate the Fay somehow, but he doubt that anything of the real world would have any effect now. Seth was a man of action, but now it seemed that all he could do was be inactive since manipulation of the real world wouldn’t help their situation. He felt useless, gazing at his friends seeing their anger, their fear, and despair. Yet he felt the slightest bit hopeful, for reasons he couldn’t think of except his loyalty to his friends. Seth felt there had to be a way out of their situation, but what. Then he realized there is something they can use to maneuver around this imaginary yet real hell and he spoke it out loud, “Ourselves. We can manipulate ourselves and manipulate the Imaginarium. That’s...that’s gotta be our ticket out…right?”

Lucas stood still and stared at the Fay. The Imaginarium Fay? What in the gods name had happen? Lucas took a few calculated and calm breaths. He didn't usually freak out but that's probably because they never met something unreal. Real situations can be solved but unreal like this one? Fear slowly crept it's way through his body but he tried to at least stay calm, there was no use in panicking and create more distress around here then necessary. How could this happen to them? How could they get out from all this? Everything still seemed like a dream, a very terrible and frightening one.

He couldn't help the flinch he made when Ginger made her outburst when he got lost in thought. Ginger had a point in what she said, they all needed not to panic and try to stay calm and then Seth said something interesting.
"Do you really think we can do that? Manipulate the Imaginerium? I'm sorry for doubting that but.. I saw something really terrifying yesterday." He said with a slight tremor in his voice. His head was slowly pounding again as if it had been gone for a bit but reminded him again that it's still there. He winced a bit and placed a hand carefully on the back of his head where he had hit it on the gravel.

"I think we all need to breathe a little. I'm sure what you come up with is good ideas but I know my head is still a bit.. Mushy to think. I got a really bad headache." He turned around to walk into Emelia's kitchen and fetch a glass to drink some water.
So this is real. They were trapped in this double world called Imaginerium where their hallucinations might be real and they got Imaginerium Fay after them who.. What did they want? He needed to ask the others as soon as he had calmed himself a little. He knew for sure that they meant trouble, possible the worst scenario he could think of. They wanted them dead. But why?
He drank some water and leaned his back against the sink, crossing his arms and tapped his fingers against the glass he was holding. Would they be trapped here forever or might they be able to escape all this? So many questions and so few answers. He hated it.

"Do you really think we can do that?" Lucas asked with tremors in his voice. "Manipulate the Imaginerium? I'm sorry for doubting that but...I saw something really terrifying yesterday." Upon Lucas admitting his thoughts, Seth realized that Lucas had been separated from the rest of the group and he had his own share of nightmares over the past few days. Seth as about to ask about his experiences with Imaginerium when Lucas placed his hand on the back of his head as though he was having some kind of headache. After confirming Seth’s worries, Lucas went into Emelia’s kitchen to drink some water.

All around him, Seth’s friends were suffering in some way: physically, emotionally, or mentally, or even all of the above. No words seemed to be comforting and everyone was reacting differently to this new situation. Seth then figured in times like this he just needed to move around and do something, anything. At first he paced around the room trying to assess everyone’s condition, at least what he thinks it is because he can never be sure. Emelia had suffered some sort of mind intrusion pains, Lucas is having a headache and seemed to have some sort of traumatizing experience (not that everyone else’s wasn’t), Ginger is crossing between panicking and trying to remain calm, Sebastian seems to be a bit silent, and Elizabeth lay resting on the bed still recovering from her wounds. Seth wondered whether to try and find Aspirin or some other pain killer to help Emelia and Lucas, but with the experiences they were having now, drugs don’t seem to be trustworthy anymore. He decided to go the simple route that his mother the vet often taught him to do with headaches.

Emelia seemed to be still shaken by her mental experience so Seth decided not to bother her unless necessary and went into the kitchen grabbing a large silver bowl, six small rags, and filling the large bowl with ice cold water. After filling the large bowl almost to the brim with the simple icy remedy, Seth folded the rags and set them on the water, letting each rag sink one after the other into the small water hole. After waiting a few minutes, Seth grabbed a clean white square plate and took the folded rags from the large bowl, placing each of them onto the plate. He passed by the drinking Lucas and handed him one of the soaked towels, not saying anything but “here.” He repeated the same gesture to the rest of the gang whether they were suffering some sort of migraine or not, with the exception of Elizabeth. He carefully placed the penultimate ice cold rag on top of her forehead, hoping that he could help ease the pain she was feeling by at least a little.

At the moment he placed the towel on Elizabeth’s forehead, Seth suddenly flashed to some sort of imagination that he did not initiate. Elizabeth seemed to be running in an open field as though she didn’t have any wounds. Seth ran after her until Elizabeth encountered the monster with the large teeth that was in the group’s spot in the bathroom. Elizabeth only stood there as the monster took a large bite into her arm and disappeared. She continued to stand there and face Seth while scarlet blood kept on gushing out of her arm. A pool of blood formed around her, yet Elizabeth did not exhibit some sort of pain or worry or of consciousness. Only her eyes kept staring at Seth. Seth was holding the penultimate rag in his hand and he tried to plug the hole by tying the rag around her arm. It helped for a little bit, but then the rag burned and a hole was created for the blood to seep through again. Seth couldn’t help but call out, “Liz!!!” before returning to his senses. Feeling exhausted from the nightmare, Seth took the last rag out of the bowl and moved the bowl to the side. At the floor next to the bed where Elizabeth lay, Seth lay down on the floor and placed the cold rag on his head. With exhaustion of the day and the horrible experiences and visions that he’s had, Seth couldn’t help but close his eyes and drift to sleep.

Emelia allowed her body to slowly uncurl from her hunched up position on the floor. The Fay had gone and along with them the images that had been flashing painfully through her mind. Opening her eyes, she allowed her hands to fall to her sides, as they had been twisted in her hair. For the first time she noticed Seth's proximity. It startled her somewhat and was half tempted to move away. However, she squashed the feeling and held her ground. Instead, she looked around at her friends. All of them looked a little startled and frightened, Ginger more than most. Emelia had been consumed by her own pain, that she had forgotten about the others. She gave Ginger a consoling look, biting her bottom lip worriedly. Even now, when she looked at her friends who were safe, she saw the images the Fay had pushed into her mind. Terrifying, disgusting images that would haunt her nightmares. She hoped beyond anything that they would never come true.

Looking around, she gave each of them a questioning look, as Seth moved away from her and into the kitchen. Shakily, she stood and followed him, accepting the wet rag that he offered her. She pressed it to her clammy forehead, breathing deeply in the kitchen. Silently, she turned and poured herself a glass of water from the tap, leaning against the counter. For the first time since he had arrived Emelia laid eyes on Lucas. Her mouth opened wide and the glass slipped from her fingers. It smashed loudly on the kitchen floor as she stood starting. Closing the distance between them she threw her arms around her friend. Part of her had been so worried about Lucas being missing from the group. Relief swept across her chest and she buried her face into the gap between his shoulder and neck. Clutching him, she released after a few moments. Instead she grabbed his face in her heads and stared furiously into his eyes in a motherly way, asking the simple question "where the hell have you been?"

Sebastian let out a long and relieving breath that he had been containing ever since the Fay had appeared. He flopped down onto the couch while Ginger became agitated and walked around ferociously trying to find a solution to the not dying part of this wild adventure. Truthfully, Sebastian wished for a painless death, deep down he felt that they were going to die and he was mentally begging the Fay to not kill him painfully. While Sebastian was facing what he defined at the awful truth, Seth had an idea. Manipulate Imaginerium. It sounded more like Mission Impossible and suicide that anything else. Lucas questioned him then left for a drink in the kitchen. Everyone seemed to be in need of cooling off.

Seth helped everyone by handing a cool rag to each. Sebastian quietly took hold of it and pressed it against his forehead. There were so many things happening at once. He then wondered how Emilia was doing, she had gone through some sort of mental intrusion. She was no longer in a bundle but still had a very anxious expression on her face. Sebastian wanted to cheer everyone up so that they wouldn't have that same face but he had nothing. No jokes, no stupid things to do. He was no longer Looney.

Seth went to care for Liz so Sebastian decided to roll a joint. He needed to calm down and some weed would help with that. He took out the rolling paper, the grinder, the weed and the tobacco. He started rolling but his hands were shaking so much. He had to put the rolling paper that was already fitted with tobacco on the coffee table so that he would shake all of it off. He grasped his hands together and breathed deeply. He had to do something, he couldn't stay afraid forever.

He had his sister too, she was probably home alone by now! He quickly grabbed his phone from his pocket and looked at the time. No it was only noon, she was still at school having lunch. His sister, Julia, was such a serious and dedicated student. He had to live, he had to live so that he could protect her from anything, he hadn't been able to keep her away from their abusive father and he had to make up for that.

Seth had just gotten a nightmare and called out for Elizabeth. Sebastian came closer to him while he lied himself comfortably on the ground next to the bed Elizabeth was in.

Hey, are you okay? Did you have a nightmare?” Sebastian asked cautiously and didn't wait for him to answer because he was too eager to ask, “So what were you thinking when you said that we could try and manipulate Imaginerium with ourselves?

Lucas thanked Seth for the wet rag but just held it in his hand. He felt a bit helpless from just standing there but there was no more he could do at the moment. He still had this sickening feeling in his stomach and knew it would stay there for at least today. Why did he have to freak out like that before? Well, yesterday. It would be a bit easier to deal with all this if he just didn't have this stupid headache. This would take a while to melt, just a few days ago they were He drank up the rest of the water in the glass and placed the glass on the counter. He flinched at the sudden crash of glass onto floor and then he had a handful of Emelia in his arms. He breathed out when she hugged him and hadn't thought he needed one as much as he did until he got one. A soft smile was on his lips when she let him go and grabbed his head.

"I've been.. Spending a day on the hospital and came here as soon as they let me out from there. I'm so glad that all of you were here or I'd.. I don't know. Fully lost my mind or something." He said a bit jokingly to hide that he was so terrified. He leaned forward and placed a kiss on her forehead. "What happen in there Em? You looked so much in pain.." He said worried and with a little frown. There was so much going on in his head and he was glad that he could focus on something now instead of the running thoughts.

"I've been.. Spending a day on the hospital and came here as soon as they let me out from there. I'm so glad that all of you were here or I'd.. I don't know. Fully lost my mind or something.

Emelia gave Lucas a rather worried look, frowning her eyebrows seriously. But when he kissed her forehead, she smiled at him, flushing ever so slightly. Emelia was very fond of Lucas and he had been one of the first that she had trusted in the group. Having him back warmed her heart. Even still, she would keep an eye on him until she was positively sure that he was alright. Better to make sure then for him to freak out on them. Well, they were all freaking out in some way weren't they? When he mentioned what had happened to her, she shuddered, closing her eyes for a second. No, she wouldn't think about it. It was far too painful. Shaking her head, she opened her eyes to stare at him long and hard, indicating that she would not burden it upon anyone. It was better left unsaid.

With a glance outside, she linked her cold fingers through Lucas'. Nodding her head towards the back door, she tugged him to follow her out there. Silently, as always, she led the way, opening the door and stepping outside. Blinking in the sunlight, she drew to a halt, her hand still holding Lucas' tightly. The back garden, in which they had been many times, looked nowhere as normal as it usually did. The grass appeared to be longer and waving gently, though there was no breeze whatsoever. The branches of the trees were twisted and bright in colour. The sky was such a brilliant blue that it blinded Emelia. She looked to Lucas. See, it can be beautiful. But despite it's beauty, she was worried about the whole situation. She had heard next to nothing of the conversation with the Fay.

Unlinking their hands, she reached up and stroked his cheek gently, before giving him a gentle, but playful push.
