Photo Booth Chapter 2: All Hell Breaks Loose, and some other stuff happens
Well apparently Irina had been left out of the whole thing by both
groups. The "photo booth people" went one way, the "car people" went
another and everyone left her behind. Not miffed in the least, she decided
to amuse herself by taunting the sleeping hobo on the bench, now abandoned
by the old woman who had gone off to her old lady dreams, and to change her
Depends. But as Irina made her way towards that side of the Lobby, Fisk,
another one of their friends who was supposed to go with them but never
showed up or said a word, came out of the Theaters 1-5 corridor.
"WHOO HOO! THAR SHE BLOWS!" Fisk exclaimed upon seeing Irina and
sneaking up on her. Irina jumped at least three feet in the air from the
startle, and fought back,
"ARGH! Fisk? Where the hell were you? And why did you do that you
piece o' shit?"
"I couldn't watch that movie, it's completely against my religion...too
many uses of the F-Bomb, kind of like you except compared to you it should
be rated G," Fisk replied.
"So does that mean I go against your religion? Oh wait...that's kind of
obvious I'm mean... it's me," Irina said.
NOW that I have your attention, back to the action in the Photo
Booth, we'll rewind a few frames and pick it up as the four of them (that's
Mike, Xuan, Josh and Brittany) first attempt to cram themselves into the
tiny booth. It has now become painfully obvious that it wasn't even
designed for 2 people, more like one and a half people. Xuan decided first
off that she would be the first to go in, everyone else refused as she
could easily be the last one to come in. So they shoved Mike and Josh in
first, then Brittany had to sit on their laps. Mike was already squished
against the wall as it was, and Josh was hanging off of the seat and out of
the curtain. Xuan prepared to enter. Why they were all putting up with this
was beyond me.
"ALL ABOARD! I'm comin in!" Xuan yelled as she prepared to leap
through the curtains.
But just as she became airborne and flew through the curtains the
camera went off without anyone instructing it to. And with the flash, Xuan
disappeared in mid-air, leaving everyone else stunned.
"What the hell?" Mike yelled.
But they wouldn't have very long to ponder this very eloquently put
question as all of a sudden the 1812 Overture began to play, annoyingly. It
didn't take long for Mike to realize this was his phone ringing and not
some mysterious orchestra from the great beyond. The ringing continued
"You gunna answer that Mike?" Josh persisted.
"I don't know who it is..." Mike replied.
"Ever heard of Caller ID?" Brittany asked.
"Oh yeah...Caller unknown," he said after checking the screen.
"Maybe it's Xuan, answer it anyway," Brittany said.
"Yeah where the hell did she go?" Josh asked.
"Maybe she went to the bathroom and we're all just seeing things or
imagining that she disappeared in a giant flash of light." Mike tried as
the phone kept ringing incessantly.
"ANSWER THAT!" the others insisted.
Mike answered the phone to dead air. He tried to say hello
repeatedly, but still nothing. He was getting extremely pissed and was
about to hang up as the anonymous caller finally responded.
"Good afternoon and welcome to Star Theaters Tele-Ticketing service.
For a list of showtimes press 1, to purchase tickets for today's features
press 2, to purchase advance day tickets press 3..." it said almost like a
machine, although you could still tell it was a real person.
"What the shit are you talking about? Xuan is this some kind of
joke?" Mike asked.
"No this is no joke and I'm definitely not named Schwann," the voice
By this time Mike had turned the phone on speakerphone so the whole
group could listen in, they all exchanged extremely confused glances
and...DUN DUN DUN! TO BE CONTINUED...AHHH!
