I pulled Zander in. He acted like I wanted to kiss him and I did want to, just not then. I went past his lips and said as loud as I could, “the guy at the door is Tina’s brother.” His head darted to me in a smoldering look of concern. Then he straightened out and looked around. He was at least a foot taller than almost everyone there. He looked at the door then around. he said, “I don’t think he is alone.” The room suddenly felt claustrophobic. I wanted out of there now. All at once the music stopped and the lights went out.

Then the lights came up all the doors were blocked and chained. The woman we knew as Raging Lib was standing on the stage. She said, “that will conclude your portion of the entertainment for tonight. I now hand you over to my sister-in-law and all over amazing woman TINA.” She spelled out Tina’s name. Tina came out of the shadows and took the microphone. She said, “thank sis I know you can’t wait to find the cunt that did your brother.” She turned to the crowd and said, “and she is here right now.” Tina looked very different from the tiny mousey blonde I remember. Her hair was cut real short with black eye liner and she was very pregnant. She always looked younger than her age but now with the baby bump she looks like a character from a Lifetime movie.
From one side of the stage a girl went up and into Tina’s face. She said, “what do you think you are doing? Who do you think you are? We are here to have fun so you and your Nazi.” before she could finish Tina quickly drew a knife from her side and stabbed her in the gut. She pulled the blade out and pushed the girl into the arms of one of the men on the stage. The crowd went nuts. There was a surge of people toward the door. On the stage, the man that caught the unknown girl was ripping her clothes off, kissing her and fondling her as she bled to death. The first seven people to made it to the door were shot down. The surge doubled back toward the stage where three more were shot.
From the stage Tina said, “ok everybody calm the fuck down. Most of you will get out of here alive. I want just seven of you. If you give them to us then you can go. Don’t do as I say and we start killing until we find them.” It was no surprise that her list was me, Jenny, Jen, Lynda, Tiffany, Tammy and Zander. All her old friends from before the pool party. She pointed to the crowd and said, “ok start with them we will kill one every two minutes until we have what we want.” I looked around. The crowd had parted from around the six of us. They gave us up without saying a word. Tina pointed and counted. She said, “no we are missing one.” I said, “Tammy broke her ankle skating so she couldn’t come.” Tina’s face lit up. She said, “well if it isn’t my old friend Jennifer.” She pointed at me and looked at Raging Lib and said, “that’s her.” Raging Lib had an evil look on her face.
They brought us up onto the stage and duct taped us to some chairs. A voice came from the crowd, “we gave you what you wanted we want out.” Tina signaled to the door. They unlocked the doors but didn’t open them. The guys at the stage turned to the crowd and opened fire forcing the crowd to the door. They dropped about a third of them maybe thirty people. From what I could tell they wounded many more. The sight of the dead and dying on the ground was horrible. The smell of the copper in the blood, the gunpowder and worst of all the fresh meat smell. Jen let loose with a stream of piss down her leg. The smell added to the cacophony of scents filling the room.
Tina came up to me and said, “I wish I could do you but you are promised to another.” She pointed to Raging Lib with her baseball bat. Tina said, “I would say at least you won’t get fucked but my sister wants to have all our friends take turns on you before she beats you to death.” With that Tina got up and swung her bat. It hit Zander in the knee. There was an audible crack. She said, “they’re letting me take care of this one. I am going to break and cut off every interesting part on him and when I am done I will let him die.” She swung the bat again and I could hear his ribs break.
Two of them took Lynda chair and all out of our line of site. We could hear the tape tearing and her clothes ripping. Then the crying and a thumping sound. There was a moment of silence then one of them said, “dam it Jerry you killed her.” The one named Jerry said, “hey she’s still warm.” Then the thumping sound started again. Tina had stopped hitting Zander to watch what was happening. She then swung again breaking his hands. The one called Raging Lib pulled my head back and said, “when my family is done with you you’ll wish for death.” The others moved toward the stage. One of them, a moose of a man started to unbuckle his belt while looking at me.
A door opened. It was one of the boys that ran from the party. Then all the doors on one side opened. It was the swim team, the football team, the baseball team and yes, the chess club. Some had baseball bats. Others had chains and a few had guns. On one side eight Nazi men who were out of ammo and two women. On the other side fifty angry guys and seven pissed off nerds with guns. The teams came for their captain. Tina and Raging slipped out a door while their men were beaten down my teenagers. Team spirit and school pride at work.
These are short stories I wrote. Some are connected to the larger books I am working on others are just for the fun of story telling.
