Authors notes- Hi everyone I'm back! Yes this is meant to be funny but I don't think it is, at all. This part is so not funny at all but read it anyway! Just to let you know it takes place at the end of the second series as I haven't seen any of the third yet (damn Britain being so slow to get Mutant X) Oh and the Manson person, Manson Eckhart? That's right isn't it or am I watching a totally different show to you lot? Anyhow be good readers, read.
It was cold, god it was the cold. Frigid winter wind ripped through the air. Circling their bodies rapping their long dragon like tails around the desperate peoples arms and legs. Slowly pulling them down. The light spray of ice-cold water went unnoticed to the frantic people but the sounds; the endless roaring sounds could not be ignored. The sharp whistle of the wind was accompanied by the engulfing whooshing sound of an angry, deep embodiment of dark water. The building made the worst noise of all. The slow creaks and impossibly loud thuds like thunder. The noises together were so loud they could not even hear their own screams of encouragement warning each other to hang on. This being difficult enough as the once magnificent building broke in half much like a child's toy but with the endless streams of dust and small lumps of god knows what it became impossible for them to even open their eyes. The insides of their mouths were dry and sore with all the shouting and the screaming but they carried on even as they felt their very throats being lined with dust. Their fingers red raw as they hang of the edge on finger tips alone. They really needed to let go as one finger seized up after another. A few might of cracked but it was so hard to tell with so much adrenaline running through your body.
All they had to do was hold on. All they had to do was to stay away from the endless wet unknown beneath them. They just had to stay alive.
One was a falling, eye still glued on the rest of them. Her arms waved frantically as she fell. She looked like a red headed angle moving in slow motion. A look of pure terror on her frozen face. Then she disappeared under a dark blue wall of coldness…
"EMMA!" Brennan shouted quickly bringing his feet up to join him on the chair rubbing his socked toes.
"Sorry Bren, didn't see ya feet there…" Emma shouted over her shoulder, as she was unable to slow down on her roller skates. It took her only a few seconds to disappear around yet another corner.
Brennan quickly suppressed the urge to cry about his sore toes as Shalimar and Jesse were sitting on the sofa next to him. He couldn't look weak in front of them, at least not when he was trying to act like his hero- Arnold Schwartenegger.
"Hey has anyone seen Adam" Shalimar said urgently before Jesse could tell her any more about his latest online date.
Brennan shook his head. "Last time I saw him he was sneaking in that room with the big honkin lock on it and the big sign above it saying 'Adam's secret games room- provided by Sony' I haven't seen him since."
"Oh" Shalimar said idly and the pair both sat in silence trying to think of a good conversation starter. They then sat there for a further ten minuets trying to get rid of their headaches.
Shalimar suddenly perked up when Jesse got up to pick up his game boy. Amazingly he managed to stop walking just in time so that Emma could wiz past again with out running over his toes. Brennan was distracted from looking at Jesse with intense jealously and getting caught up in Shalimar's excitement.
"What is it Shal? Are you hearing something with your super strong feline senses?" Jesse asked hopefully.
Shalimar frowned at him "No I've just got this feeling, um, what's it called… de jam something. Oh, you know when something feels like its happened before?"
"De jam voo" Brennan offered
Shalimar shook her head and looked at Brennan as if he was the stupidest person she had ever seen.
"Don't you mean déjà vu?" Jesse announced finally putting his game down.
He knew he was right when Shalimar started to nod enthusiastically. "Yeah that it! Ha" She snorted a laugh "That's a stupid word!"
Brennan also started to laugh leaving Jesse staring at both of them wondering what was so funny. After about five minuets he got bored and went back to his game.
"What is so funny everyone?" Emma's overly cheery voice sounded behind Jesse where she had just sat down with a creepily large smile on her face.
"Funny?" Brennan asked clueless. Emma winked at him. "Oh, I was only laughing because Shal was." He said quickly.
"You were? Well I thought it was funny. That word dumb ja…" Shalimar started.
"Déjà vu." Jesse said without even looking up.
"That's what I said" Shalimar eyed him darkly. "Anyway I was just gonna say I have this feeling that something real important and dangerous was happened a second ago but I don't know what."
Jesse had put his game down again now. "That's so cool. Maybe there is some one we need to help and they have linked with Shal telepathically, well I suppose Emma would be better for that… Oh! Or maybe it's like the episode of The X Files where they were reliving past lives. Or in The Outer Lim…"
Jesse was cut of as Emma whacked him hard around the head. He was about to complain then he saw the look in her eyes and turned back around scared.
"I seem to remember, hanging, trying so hard to hold on and someone's hand on my ass. Damn that could have been any night this week!" Shalimar complained.
"You know I had the same feeling earlier. I was skating past the secret Sony room and I skidded on the newly waxed wooden floor. And as I feel, I don't know suddenly it felt like I was falling into a load of water" Emma said.
"Oh my God!" Brennan suddenly shouted standing up.
"What is it?" The other three asked hoping that Brennan knew what was going on.
"Some how someone, or something has managed to clean the Sanctuary without us noticing! Yesterday it was my room now it's the floor! God, when will this cleaning madness end?" Brennan moaned.
"Maybe it's the ghost of Christmas yet to come trying to tell us that Christmas wont come if we are so messy all the time." Jesse said quickly moving out of the way so Emma couldn't hurt him.
"So we don't know what it is then?" Emma said with a raised eyebrow.
"Nope" Shalimar replied attempting to turn her head around three hundred and sixty degrees to watch a large piece of dust fall to the ground.
"Oh" Emma replied.
All of a sudden the Sanctuary started to shake violently around them. Furniture stated to slide to one side of the room and back again. The lights flashed on and off and pictures fell of the walls.
"Shit what the hell is going on?" Brennan asked ducking to avoid a falling decretive plant pot.
"We're being attacked by giant robots. It must be the postman! He always wanted his own back and one day I even saw him with a screw driver!" Jesse shouted falling over and grabbing Shalimar's leg pulling her over on top of him.
"Quick guys! Emma you go and do your mind mojo on the evil son of a bitch postman, Brennan you make smart ass comments to throw the evil mindless robots of their game and Shalimar you jump on them with those cool back flip things and put bombs on them and then…"
"God Jesse shut up were not super heroes we are just normal people that risk our lives to save a bunch of idiots every week. I mean come on we don't even wear our underwear on the outside of our clothes!" Emma shouted at Jesse.
Shalimar raised her hand to protest but Emma cut her of before she could speak. "Shal just cos you wear your underwear on the outside it doesn't make you a super hero, just a whore." Shalimar smiled agreeing with Emma.
Out of nowhere a computer swung through the air at Shalimar's head but before it could touch her she leaned back in slow motion so that it sailed over body. Shalimar's back clicked as she stood back up.
"See not superheroes," She said to Jesse sticking out her tongue.
"Shouldn't one of us get Adam?" Jesse asked.
"Why? We don't know where he is or what is going on." Brennan said.
"Are you people thick or something?" Emma shouted as the light above her head exploded. No one answered so she glared at them and carried on speaking, "This place is built on the edge of a cliff, it's a fuking earthquake!"
DUMB, DUMB, DUMB!!!!!!!!!!!!
"Who said that?" Brennan complained as the Sanctuary began to crack beneath their feet falling slowly towards the edge of the cliff…
