Story #6: The Zombie House

The Zombie House

“I’m so excited for this!” Jessica said, with enthusiasm. She was in the car with her best friend, Lilian, and they were on their way to the amusement park named The Amazing Amusement Park of Thrills. 

“I know. The first thing I want to do is get on The Titan of Doom,” Lillian stated. 

“Well, first let’s get a bite to eat, because I’m starving.” Jessica’s stomach growled, and she laughed. 

After another hour of sitting in the car waiting for them to arrive, they finally did. The smell of hot dogs, and sounds of people screaming on the roller coasters made the two girls even more excited. They paid for their tickets, and ran straight for the popcorn stand.

After they had gotten their popcorn, the two girls saw something that they hadn’t seen on the website for the amusement park. It was what appeared to be a haunted house. There was a graveyard on the outside of it, and a big black door that lead to the inside. 

“Hey! Here’s something that no one is in line for. Let’s do this before the lines get too crowded!” Jessica said, walking over toward the haunted house.

“Well...I’m not really into scary things like haunted houses. I enjoy roller coasters, not haunted houses,” Lillian said. 

Jessica kept on walking, and so Lillian decided that she might as well go along with it, otherwise she’d never hear the end of it. 

The two girls walked up the stairs, and pushed on the black, heavy door leading up to a room filled with ghosts, scary music, and sounds of screams. 

“Do you smell that? It smells like a dead rat or something,” Lillian said with revulsion.

“Ew, this is too gross. Let’s get out of here!” Jessica yelled.

The two girls turned around to leave, but when they pushed on the door, it wouldn’t open.

“Ugh,” Jessica said, “We’ll have to just hurry through here, and hope that we don’t throw up from the smell.”

They began to run through the haunted house, and as they did, they didn’t realize that they were being followed. 

“Oh my gosh! A dead end!” Lillian cried. “What are we going to do?”

“We’re going to have to find another exit then,” Jessica said. 

Lillian turned around, and screamed. There were over 10 zombies, and they were moaning the words “Must kill.”

“Run!” Lillian screamed, and they began to run through the haunted house. They got to a part of the house that was pitch black, and Jessica hit her head, fell down, and passed out.

“Jessica!” Lillian began to cry. The zombies were all stepping on Jessica. Lillian could see Jessica underneath them, helpless. Lillian knew that if Jessica was awake she would want her to run and find the exit.

Lillian ran until she reached a corridor. At the end of the corridor was a door, with light pouring out of the cracks. Lillian scampered to the door, and pushed as hard as she could. All of a sudden she felt as if she was falling, and smacked the hard pavement beneath her. 

She lifted her hand to her face and felt blood trickling down her cheek. “Ouch,” she mumbled. “What am I going to do now? My best friend is probably dead, and there is no way I can go back in there.”
Lillian saw out of the corner of her eye, a man that appeared to be staring at her. “You look a little lost, do you need some help?” the man beckoned to her to come closer, but she was reluctant. 

“Well,” she said, “this is going to sound crazy but there were zombies and they were attacking us, and my best friend is still in there. Please help!” 

The man had a serious look on his face. “Well, the haunted house came from Germany. Apparently an old witch put a curse on it. I’ve never seen any activity in it, but I believe you. Let’s get in there and help your friend. I’m an employee here, so I can get into the house different ways than you.” 

Lillian sighed with relief, and then realized if they didn’t hurry it would be too late. “Okay, let’s go!”
They ran over to a door that Lillian hadn’t noticed earlier. It was towards the middle of the haunted house, so it must be a door that can only be used by employees. The man put a key into the door, and opened it up slowly. It creaked, and Lillian jumped.

“Relax, it’s just the door making a noise. Follow me.” He walked up the stairs, and immediately heard a scream. 

“That’s Jessica! I know it is! We have to hurry!” Lillian began running with the old man trailing behind her. 

They turned a corner and saw Jessica huddled in a corner with the monsters circling around her. She was crying and there was blood everywhere. Lillian turned to the man and he looked at her like I don’t know what to do! 

“I remember something from a movie I once saw. Take me to where ever you keep the fire extinguisher,” Lillian said, panting. 

She and the man ran towards the storage room, and grabbed the fire extinguisher. Once Lillian had a hold of it, she sprinted off toward where the zombies were, and used the extinguisher against them. They began to fall like dead flies. Jessica was still sobbing.

“Grab Jessica and let’s get out of here!” Lillian cried, and the man grabbed her and they got out of the haunted house. 

Immediately after they got out of there, Lillian ran to the medical station with Jessica and got her some help to stop the bleeding. They told the medical people what happened, and they just laughed and told the girls that they were too old to have such a big imagination. 

After Jessica got cleaned up, Lillian walked over to the man and asked him what his name was. 
“It’s Davey,” he answered, and smiled. “Thanks for a day of adventures, because I haven’t had one of those in a long time.”

Days after the whole incident had happened, Lillian decided to go back to give Davey a present for helping the girls. She got him a gift card to Farm and Fleet, even though she wasn’t sure if he would like it.

Lillian got out of the car and went to the amusement park help area. “Can you help me locate a man named Davey? I need to give him this gift.” 

The worker researched his name on the computer. “I’m sorry, dear, but we don’t have a worker here named Davey. We used to, but he died inside the haunted house during an accident a year ago. 
Actually, it was exactly a year ago.” The worker apologized for the inconvenience, and Lillian turned to leave the room.

Lillian walked past the haunted house again, and in the corner of her eye, she thought she could see a man that looked exactly like Davey.
