"Jayden what's going on?" I asked looking around blankly.
Everything was black I could not see anything, not even my own
"It's alright Bailey I got you." I heard him say. I felt his
fingers entwining with mine.
"I'm scared Jay." I whispered to him as I heard a sound down the
"It's alright I'm here Bails, your safe with me." He whispered. I
heard fabric moving around as I looked on blindly.
"What are you doing?" I asked him. I suddenly saw a flash of
light making me close my eyes for a minute.
"I was getting my phone so I open my locker." He said. I opened
my eyes to see him trying to open his locker with his phone's
light shining onto the dial. I chuckled making him look at me.
"What?" He asked, the world muffled by the phone in his mouth.
"Nothing you just look like an idiot." I laughed. He squeezed my
hand as his locker popped open. He started to look through all
the crap in it.
"Aha I found." He said loudly dropping his phone to the ground.
"Damn." He cussed as the light went out. I blinked my eyes as the
darkness once again took both of us into its dark, no pun
intended, grip. I heard a clicking sound making me look around as
a light flashed on.
"Jayden you have a flash light in your locker?" I asked raising
my eye brow at him.
"Of course what if I needed it? Oh wait like I just did." He
laughed nudging me with his shoulder.
"Shut up it's still kind of weird." I smiled. I pulled my keys
from my pocket and flicked on my pocket flashlight.
"And you say I'm weird for having a flash light in my locker when
you carry one on your keys." He snorted as we started to walk
back to the locker room.
"No my dad got it for me when I got my car in case I needed them.
Oh and look at that I needed them." I said in a matter - of -
"Whatever." He said looking up at the ceiling. "You would think
since it's only 9 o'clock in the morning there would be light in
these hall ways but there isn't."
"That's because there is no windows to let any light in. When
they were building the school they were not thinking to clearly."
I said pulling a face.
"You can say that again." He said giving a little nod looking
"Bailey? Jayden? You here or is there a serial killer in here and
they already got them." A voice called down the hall way.
"Yes you idiot a serial killer is in the school and killed both
of us." I called back. I heard a laugh.
"Told you you moron that they were fine." Wyatt said laughing
turning into the hall way with Oliver. They both had flash lights
in their hands.
"Hey you never know dude. They could be dead right now." Oliver
said shoving Wyatt as we laughed at him.
"Alright leave the poor guy alone." I smiled finally letting go
of Jayden's hand. "So anyone got any idea what the hell is going
on right now?" Wyatt looked around shining his flash light on the
walls and ceiling.
"Coach thinks the transformer blew so we have to go see what's
going on on this side while he goes and checks." Oliver said as
we started to walk towards the side door that was on this side of
"Holy crap!" I said looking outside. There were at least 6 or 7
inches of snow on the ground already.
"That's a lot of snow." Wyatt whistled.
"It snowed what? 6 inches in like an hour? That's crazy if that
speed keeps up we are going to snowed in for a while." Jayden
said pulling a face at us.
"Great, snowed in at school, not even at home." I sighed as we
started to walk back to the locker rooms. Coach Michel looked at
us as we got back.
"6 or 7 inches Coach. But we couldn't see anything else. It's a
blizzard out there." Oliver whistled just like Wyatt did before.
"Well we are stuck in here with no power also Coach." Another
football player on the team said shacking snow from his hair.
"You were right. The wind and snow sent that tree that looked
crooked and deformed to fall onto the transformer. We are screwed
that thing is busted up pretty bad. We have no power at all
Coach." He said rubbing his arms. Coach Michel sighed.
"This isn't good. With no power that means we are going to have
no heat. Now with no heat that means we are going to freeze are
asses off." He rubbed his shaven head. "Any ideas you 5? Some
ideas will be a little bit of help here." He huffed. Did I forget
to mention that coach started working here about 2 weeks ago? I
did? Oops, my bad.
"You should probably should call the commander and tell him we
are going to freeze to death if he doesn't send in some Marines
to get us out of here." I suggested. "I'm 18. I don't want to die
just yet." Coach nodded.
"Your right Bailey. What would I do without you?" He said pulling
out his cell phone.
"Run around like a chicken with his head cut off." I shrugged.
"Any other ideas from the peanut gallery?" Coach asked looking at
"Blankets, food, water." Oliver said.
"Blankets are in the emergency cases in Coach's office. Food is
in the kitchen or also in the emergency cases. Now we still have
running water since it isn't power operated but it will be
freezing cold since the heater does work on power." I said
looking at everyone.
"Alright food, water, and blankets all done. Can you all go get
that stuff for me while I call the commander?" We nodded as we
started to make are way back into the locker room……
