"What is that liquid that is making this happen to her?" Frank said grabbing the bottle. He put the cork back on the top to prevent anyone else form drinking.
"Can you hear me? If you can raise your hand." Ray said kneeling next to me. I shot my hand in the air in response to his question.
"Gee, fix her. Make her okay." Mikey begged his older brother. Gerard simply gave Mikey a sorry look. I let go of Gerard and sat up. I sat up completely straight. My vision was a little blurred but that was from clenching my eyes closed. I felt Gerard put his hand on my back.
"Don't move to much. Your still getting over that pain. Can you still feel it?" He asked me.I shook my head no and got off his lap. I sat on the cold concrete and stared at the ceiling.
"Is she alive?" Mikey said getting his face close to mine. I blinked and stared into his beautiful eyes as he tilted his head. He put his hand to my cheek and felt my skin.
"She is ice cold." Mikey said pulling his hand away quickly.
"I know. But she is breathing. But her heart stopped beating." Gerard said as he sat next to his brother. Frank and Ray joined them and stared at me. I tilted my head to the side and made a funny face. They all started to laugh.
"I think she is okay." Ray laughed and he scruffed my long brown hair. It was in a ponytail so him doing that just messed it up. I laughed and relaxed a little. I felt fine. I felt hyper, and awake. Certainly not dead. Frank put the back of his hand to my forehead, like he was checking if I had a fever.
"She is cold." He said to Gerard. He just rolled his eyes, considering he had pointed that out a couple seconds ago.
"Don't move, this may be a little weird." Frank said to me as he put his hand to my chest. I knew he was checking my pulse so it didn't bother me. He took his hand away and made a worried face.
"She has no pulse. It seems she is dead, but not. If that's possible." Frank said turing to them.
"I feel fine. I feel like I could run a mile. I'm really awake." I said bouncing up and down. Mikey took my hand in his and stroked the back with his thumb. I squeezed his hand trying to signal that I was okay.
"Whatever that drink was, it killed you. Only half way though." Gerard said with a frown. Ray started to play his guitar. A sad song, because it fit the situation. Frank smacked him for bringing down the mood. I sprung up to my feet. I decided because I was so hyper I was going to jump. But, I didn't expect this to happen. I jumped but I jumped to the ceiling of the parking structure. I held onto a bar on the top and looked down.
"What the fuck?" I heard Gerard say from the ground. I let go out of fear and floated gently to the floor. I stood there getting scared looks from all of the guys.
"How did I do that?" I asked looking at my feet.
"The drink killed you, but gave you special powers. Wicked." Frank said looking at the bottle.
"Yeah." I said giving Frank a high five.
"I wonder if and when it wears off." Ray said looking at the bottle in Frank's hand.
"I get it now. These are supposed to help us escape. It's a game." I said picking up one of the bottles out of my bag. I took the one from Frank and put it back in my backpack.
"How long does this thing last for. Or does it ever go away. Or will you be dead forever!" Frank started over reacting.
"Shut the hell up Frank, I'm not dead! Do I look dead. If I was dead I wouldn't be ale to touch you." I said smacking him in the back of the head. He started to laugh and shut up.
"Your dead? How is that possible?" Mikey asked me. I wish I could have answered him but I didn't know either.
"I don't know Mikey. Sorry." I said and he pulled me into him. I felt his arms wrap around me and I felt his body heat. It didn't make me any warmer though.
"Why did you do that?" I asked as he let me go.
"I thought it would warm you up." He said stroking my cheek with the side of his hand.
"It didn't work though." He frowned. I knew he wanted me to be okay. I honestly thought I was but he tried.
"Thanks for trying though." I said and stretched upward to plant a kiss on his cheek. He smiled big and he face turned red. Frank and Ray started to laugh. Gerard put his arm around Mikey and gave him a smile. Mikey looked at the floor embarrassed by how pink his face had turned. I slipped my hand into his and he looked up at me. I motioned for him to bend down. He put his ear to my mouth so I could tell him something.
" Don't be embarrassed. I think it's cute when you turn pink." I whispered into his ear with a light laugh. It made him smile knowing he didn't look stupid. I looked up and saw the guys staring at us with idiotic smiles.
"Shut up." Mikey said to them with a growl. I took my hand out of his and walked over to the side. I saw a white big rig pulling into the parking structure. It was the truck that killed my parents. I was about to walk over to the driver and give him a piece of my mind but was stopped by someone holding my hand. I turned to see Gerard shaking his head no. He knew what I was going to do. He also knew that I would get myself hurt again. I felt tears start filling my eyes. I ran over to him and wrapped my arms around his waist. He embraced me in a tight hug. He knew I was crying for that reason.
'It's okay. What happens happens. Plus now your dead too." He laughed. I pulled back slightly without letting go. He smiled at me and kissed my cheek. It made me feel a whole lot better hearing him joke about it. He let go of me and patted my shoulder. I saw them open the truck and a giant snake slithered out. My eyes widened and I grabbed hold of Gerard. Only because he was standing next to me, if a stranger was next to me a would have grabbed them. I grabbed his hand and squeezed it hard. He looked at me and I looked at him.
"What's your plan?" He asked me. For once I had no idea. I couldn't even think straight. And because that was what snatched my parents. I felt tears drip down my face. I also felt someone wipe them away. I looked over at the person. I was glad he was a little scared too. Gerard and I exchanged looks. I knew he was thinking the same thing I was.
"Run!" We shouted in unison. We all started to run towards the car mountain. We hid behind it waiting to figure out what to do. And how to not get eaten by the huge monster.
