Trapped. My brother invites me to go the university district with his friends to hang out. I have no plans so I agree. Duncan gets in my car and helps me navigate the twenty minutes to his friends house.

Extracts from this document...


Trapped Downtown is cold, colder then back home on the island. I make my way around three short blocks, reaching 5th avenue where my friend Jeff lives. He doesn't have a phone so I stand under his apartment building and yell his name, he lives eight floors up but if he's home he can hear me. The previous night, our friend Nehemiah punched a hole through his window. I wait a few minutes, the elevator doors open, Jeff walks towards me. He laughs at my ridiculous entrance but says he had expected me to stop by at some point. We ride the elevator up eight floors and enter his apartment; there are a few other people there, no one I know. I introduce myself to a few people and then move to the kitchen where Jeff is cooking instant turkey stuffing on his stove. It smells horrible but I smile and help him stir. He offers me some but I decline, he laughs and tells me to try it but I turn away, I'm vegetarian. My phone vibrates in my side pocket, my brother, Duncan is calling. His voice is vibrant over the phone, "Becca! ...read more.


He forces it open and reaches his arm around the corner to find a light switch, the light flickers a few times before it steadies itself. The light is dim but better then nothing. There is hardly anything in the basement except for a refrigerator that seems to be broken and a washing machine and dryer. The basement is damp and smells like rot. Scanning the room, I figure out why, a pipe is leaking against one wall and the water is mildewing on the dirty walls. The scenery is like a bad horror film with all the noises that seem to come from nothing. I stand at the door for a minute and take in what's going on, after taking a few steps into the room; Michael turns to look at me, "NO! Hold the door open!" I turn, "click", frantically I turn the door knob, it's locked. Fantastic. "Becca! The door locks from the outside! Sorry I forgot to tell you to put the door stopper in. The house has been broken into through the basement a few times so the owner put in these weird locks." I feel like crying, my phone is back at the other house with my brother and Michael doesn't have his. ...read more.


He hands me a pair of sweatpants and waits out in the main room while I put them on, he covers us in some extra clothes that were downstairs and pretty soon were both asleep again. My eyes begin to open, my vision is blurred and it's completely dark. Michael is snoring next to me. I gently push him so he leans against the other wall. I stand up and walk out of the closet and over to the window, it's still black outside, thank god. I yell through the window but I'm sure no one can here me, it's raining and that muffles my voice. I sit under the window for a while, the feeling of sleep overtaking me. Eventually I here something, "Becca! Becca? Where are you?" It's my brother. I yell back and jump to get my hand out the window so he can see it. Michael wakes up and helps me. My brother's face becomes visible at the window. He looks panicked and says he's been looking for us for the past two hours. Eventually, he lets himself into the house and opens that door for us, he hugs me and we walk back upstairs together. I turn back towards Michael and mouth "thanks" to him, he smiles and waves goodbye to me before going to bed. It's 4 a.m., I'm tired. I want to go home. ...read more.

    He turned around every so often to check that no one or nothing was following. Frogs could be heard splashing in a lake, camouflaged in the green undergrowth of the forest floor.
