CHAPTER 1: A Mysterious Phone Call
"It was a dark and stormy night. The air hung heavy as if someone were pinning your chest with dumb bells. In an effort to cough, I strained from the balls of my feet to the cavities of my ears. A noise erupted, not unlike the mating call of some forlorn uh, uh, something. From my ears shot forth the largest piece of something unidentifiable I had ever seen. It was huge and disgusting, yet interesting. It motivated me to contemplate just how in the world it got there in the first place. It was shiny and it sparkled like the gleam of a toenail in the sun. Then a man appeared out of the woods and said, 'Ew! What's that? Where'd that come from?' "
Four sets of tired eyes looked up at the T.V. No one had been watching it for quite some time. A man was sitting in a tent in the woods with a flash light shining into his eyes. A shadow was moving around the tent. The man went into detail of the space ship that was launched from his ears. Out of the blue, a giant blob of black goo jumped through the tent and ate the frightened man and his screaming entourage. The blob looked at the camera and gave a evil "hoo ha ha!" and disappeared.
"Eek!" a figure jumped off the floor and onto Rowen's lap.
Three sets of tired eyes looked at the owner of the voice. Cye just gave them a faint smile and looked at his feet. Kento's snoring got louder and louder. Ryo shook his head. Rowen turned back to the movie. Sage frowned and headed for bed.
"Hey, someone get the T.V. guide!" Rowen demanded. "I wanna see what this movie is called!"
"You actually care about this crap?" Ryo laughed, "I was probably made in the 70's." He searched for the holy book. "A-ha! It's called "Attack of the Alien Swamp Mongrels!" starring Fred Module and Esperanza Guadalupe Rosita Conchita Merendz-Salem. "An alien space pod attacks a group of students who are camping in the woods. It's over in ten minutes."
RING! RING! RI-!
"Hullo?" Cye reached over and fumbled with the phone.
"Hey. Is Mia there?" a voice replied. The voice was a soothing, deep, sultry voice. It was foreign. European of some sort. Maybe Swedish or Spanish, or a mix of both.Definitely female though. She seemed to be drunk or something.
"Yeah, hold on." Cye dropped the phone a stumbled upstairs to Mia's tiny bed room. He switched on the lights and shook Mia until she was awake and functioning. "Phone for you." he yawned as he tripped down the stairs and sat on Rowen's lap.
Mia, who was understandably upset, growled, put on her glasses and housecoat and went to the nearest phone. It was 4 am. Who would be calling Mia at 4 am?
"Mia here. May I ask who's calling?"
The voice gave a quick giggle, "Hey, Mia. It's me, Kat. From high school. Kat Sakai. Remember me?"
Mia searched through memory until she recalled the owner of the voice. A tall, slightly mousy girl. She was pretty and really thin. Kat loved photography and had introduced Mia to it. She and Mia had been good friends in school. And Kat was always offering to help Mia. "Of course, Kat! I'd know you anywhere. Is there something you need?"
The voice was silent for a moment, "Well, Mia, see, uh . . . I just got out of re-hab, and uh, I need a place to hang until I get a job. So, I was thinking . . . uh, can I-"
"Of course you can stay with me! Oh, Kat, it'd be an honor! You can help me with the boys!" Mia jumped up and down. Another woman around the house would be of great help.
"Oh, are ya sure, Mia? Merci, Mia! Thanks a bunch! I'm just in to Tokyo now, so I'll be over sometime this afternoon! Aur'voi!"
"Okay, see you then!"
Mia slammed down the receiver, "YES!! Another girl around the house!" she crept down the stairs silently and as she got behind the couch, she shouted, "MAYBE SHE CAN GET YOU TO LISTEN TO ME!"
Three boys jumped and one continued to snore. Mia then received three dirty looks and a shush. Cye, Rowen and Ryo returned to the television. The T.V. flashed a bright light.
"What is that light?" a frightened woman gasped.
"Why, it's Flash Gordon!" a man comforted her.
"Sheesh. Get to bed, boys. We have a big day tomorrow."
