[Rawr! I have a writers block for my other ObsCure fic, and I feel all sad because of it. I was only on the first chapter, too! -sigh- Anyways, this is a story I'm starting up while I re-play the first game and get more inspiration. Lmfao! Who does this story center around? Read to find out. But it IS in the 'Aftermath's' story-line, just with about a billion changes. Yahoo... anyways.. yeah... let's get on with it then!]
I don't own ObsCure: The Aftermath or any of it's characters
The girl's slender fingers twirled the pencil in her grip lightly, her legs crossing under her desk. ".....and if you look closely at the organs drawn in the picture, you can see...." She rolled her eyes and tried to tune out the teacher as he spoke. It was an every day thing for students to get bored here in Fall University, seeing as the classes here just weren't that great. Especially since the teachers here just seemed to ramble on and on without an end. Oh well, at least class was nearly over. In fact....
There went the bell.
A small smile spread on the girl's face, and she quickly grabbed her physics books into her grip, now keeping her pencil still. She uncrossed her legs and shot out of her seat, giggling in delight. A few of the boys in the classroom glanced at her and winked before getting their own things together, aside from one who made a 'I want a rematch' face.
Making her way to the door, she froze at the sound of a voice behind her.
"And where do you think your going, Miss Wang?" Her teacher crossed his arms, motioning for her to come over.
Letting out a groan, she obliged. "What did I do Mr. James? I turned in everything today, I swear!"
"Yes, I'm aware of this. I just wanted to ask if it was actually your work this time? Last time I checked your work, I found that one of our higher-up students had offered to do it for you." His gaze slid to a young boy sitting in the front, who immediately groaned and grabbed his belongings, running out the door. Sighing, Richard James turned back to his student. "Jun, do I have to express to you how important it is you pass my class? If you don't, you could fail the whole semester!"
Jun nodded quickly, her messy hair bouncing in the movement, even though it was tied up in a slight ponytail. "I know, I know! I swear though, I did all of my work on my own, and I even tried this time! ...Can I please go, Mr. James?" She let out a long sigh, trying her best to make puppy-eyes.
Richard groaned in annoyance, simply waving his hand in dismissal. "Just don't disappoint me, Miss Wang."
"Yeah, yeah, I know!" Jun smiled brightly. "Bye, Mr. Richards!" The man just rolled his eyes, turning back to his desk. Giggling, the girl turned away and shot out the door, into the busy hall-ways of the collage. Sven was going to kill her if she was late to his little get-together. What was it he needed to show them? A flower right? For the love of...
"Jun! Hey, Jun!" The girl turned quickly to see Corey running up behind her. Her sister's boyfriend was insane – and personally, she hated being around him.
"Corey," she commented flatly, nearly dodging a man that stood in front of her, making a mental note to keep her gaze forward at all times. Last thing she needed to do was run into a drunk collage student. "What do you want? I thought you and Mei were supposed to be heading up to Sven's."
"We were, but she wanted me to get you there – just in case you got lost.." Corey let out a sheepish laugh, rubbing the back of his head awkwardly. He seemed to shrink back when Jun let out a slight growl, rolling her eyes.
"I know where I'm going, Corey! Just get your ass up there and help her would you? She's the one who can't tell left from right!"
Corey slightly flinched at her words, nodding his head. "U-Uh... r-right.. I'll go ahead then. Um, see you there.. I guess?"
"Like hell," she muttered under her breath, watching as he turned and shot off in the direction he'd come from. It wasn't that she had a grudge against him or anything – it just bothered her that he was the one dating her sister, Mei Wang. He had a larger crush on his car than he did her... and thus, she trusted him just about as much as she would trust Kenny in a relationship.
That had to say something.
Turning her attention completely back to where she was going, she dodged a few boys who ran by her, screaming out about something having to do with a camera. She scoffed. These people were all idiots.. but she had to admit, they were hilarious.
"Oh well," she muttered, quickening her pace as she heard someone outside of the window screaming 'jeranamo'. "Better get there before they do."
"He-ey, Jun!" Sven opened the door just as she was about to knock, causing her to raise her eyebrow in question slightly.
"Psychic moment, Sven?" Jun smiled and walked into his dorm, waving heartily at a blond girl in the corner of the room. "Hello Amy!"
"Hi!" Amy giggled, clasping her hands together. The girl looked a combination of sexy and adorable today, which made Jun giggle under her breath. She found the way her friend tried to manipulate guys amusing – and needless to say, she was always a girl for fashion, rather it be seductive use, or just casual. All-though the thong that was showing on her thigh was a bit much. "How are you?"
"The usual. I'm just planning what to do at the Delta later tonight!" Jun plopped down onto Sven's couch, resting her head on one arm of the chair, and crossing her legs full-length on the other. "I am doubting taking Kenny though."
Sven seemed to get a silent perk. "Why?"
"God knows Shannon will barge in and kidnap him from us, so what's the point?" Jun ran a hand through her black hair, which she found was extremely difficult when lying on a chair.
"You do have a point," Amy muttered, sighing. She crossed her legs, deep in thought. "But does Shannon even know we're going? Maybe if Kenny can keep his mouth shut long enough, she won't even notice!"
"Yeah, that'll happen," Sven muttered, then turned his attention to the door as he heard another knock. He swung the door open, letting out a slightly obnoxious laugh. "Dude! What took you!?"
Corey slapped his hand onto the others shoulder and smirked. "If you must know, gamer chick over there blew up at me and made me run after her sister." He gestured towards Jun quickly, who muttered something along the lines of 'I could hardly call it 'blowing up'.
"Oh, shut up!" Mei bounded by Corey, practically skipping up to the chair her twin sat in. "By the way, Jun, are you sure they'll let us in to the Delta?"
Jun scoffed and rose one hand into the air, pointing a finger down at herself. "Look, if your with me, it just won't be an issue!" She shuffled into a sitting position, then groaned. "But enough about the Delta – what did you want from us, Sven?"
Said man laughed and walked over to his dresser, grabbing a small ash-tray that held a flower inside it. "Everyone on campus has been making tea from this flower, so I thought it was about time we tried it. Here, smell it!" He handed it to Jun, who sniffed the object without hesitance.
"Whoa!" The girl let out a quick giggle, handing it to Corey, who had practically pushed Mei out of his way to get to the item. He took a quick sniff of it as well, his eyes widening.
"Wow, that is cool!"
Jun winced a bit as her head began to hurt a bit
Suddenly, Corey felt a strong hand on his shoulder, which spun him around quickly. There stood Kenny, smirking down at him. "Hey, let me see it!" He grabbed the flower and took a long smell, sighing slowly. "Ahh! That's the stuff!"
And, as expected, yet another hand gripped Kenny's arm, dragging him backwards. "Come on, Kenny!" A woman's voice hissed sharply, glaring daggers from behind him. The girl had extremely dark red hair, and a shirt that was striped with red and black, paired up with a matching black mini-skirt. As if she didn't look Gothic enough, her make-up was done completely black.
"Sisters," Kenny muttered under his breath, allowing himself to be dragged away, out the door.
"Weird family." Amy shrugged her shoulders, taking her turn to sniff the flower.
Suddenly, Jun let out a low groan, her eyes dropping shut.
No one even noticed.
"Shit.. where am I?" Jun rubbed her head slightly as she sat up, looking around her. She was in an odd forest area – a place that looked vaguely familiar... "The hospital? How the hell... when did I come here?" Shaking her head, she rose from the ground, her gaze going over to a nearby baseball bat. Getting a skeptical look, she forced herself to step over to it, despite the pain going through her head. Picking up the sleek red object, she twirled it a few times, sighing. "I've gone insane. It's official..."
"Jun!" Turning at the sound of her name, she gasped at the sudden realization she wasn't alone. A familiar blond girl stood in the distance, waving her arms frantically. "Juuuuun! Over here! Can you see me!?"
"Amy?" Jun ran forward to the girl, stopping dead as soon as she neared her. "Amy! H-How did we get here?"
The blond frowned. "I'm not sure. I don't remember sleep walking, so..." She shook her head and sighed. "I just don't know. But I do think-" She cut off at a small scratching noise behind her. Getting a confused look, she turned and squinted into the darkness. Up ahead was the hospital building, or.. well, they thought it was. It kinda looked like it, aside from the creepy doll-like structures that were sticking up on the entrance path.
"What the hell is going on," Jun muttered, her face twisting into disgust as she viewed the creepy stuffed structures. Amy didn't hear her though, because her thoughts were focused on the deformed creature that was pulling a bag down the side-path, towards a small ladder that led into.. the hospital basement, maybe?
Suddenly, she heard a muffled scream come from the sack. Jun must have heard it too, seeing as she cursed under her breath and ran forward, slamming her bat down on the dolls surrounding the path. Amy ran up behind her, biting her nails lightly. She didn't know what was happening.. but it was really freaking her out.
After a few minutes of hard-worked whacking, Jun managed to clear out a path just as the odd man began to drag the bag down the ladder, only to have the two girls hot on his trail. "Let her go, bastard!" The female gamer gripped the cold metal of the ladder in her hand, then began to quickly scramble down after him, listening as Amy did the same.
"Where did he go?" Jun gritted her teeth together, anger and fear plastered onto her features. She obviously didn't plan on letting whoever that man was get away with kidnap.. or murder, whichever it was he was planning. Leave it to her to get completely worked up about something.. even if it was far out of her reach.
Amy frowned, shaking her head. "I dunno.. but... Jun, this place is really creepy. I don't think we should be here." She glanced around at the room they were in. It was a normal nurse office, with the exception of the fact it seemed to lead absolutely no where. The only opening it had was the one they'd climbed through – she didn't see how that deformed manic could have gotten away.
Jun groaned, walking over to the desk that stood in the room, shaking her head. "I can't believe we couldn't do anything," she muttered. This was just like a few of the horror games she ever played – a person would get kidnapped, and you had a timer of how long you had to save them. Apparently their timer had been on zero from the start.
"Shh!" Amy suddenly broke her thoughts, and Jun's gaze turned back to the blond. "Listen.."
And she did. In the distance, a small stomping noise could be heard. Raising her eyebrow slightly, Jun tilted her head. What was it? Better yet, where the hell was it coming from? There was no way it could be coming from down here, right? There weren't any other doors...
"Jun, I think we should-AHHHHHH!" Amy suddenly let out a blood-curdling scream as the wall behind her bust open, a huge claw swiping through her stomach, which immediately exploded, scattering blood on all nearby objects... including Jun.
"O-O-Oh my God!" Jun turned from the scene and screamed, running quickly back to the ladder she'd come through. Hands gripping the metal again, she began to quickly pull herself up, cold streams of tears rolling down her cheeks, mixing with the blood that had stained her skin. "No... this can't be happening," she whined quietly, reaching her hand up to grip the last bar.
But before she could go any further, a sharp pain hit her lower-back, and blood engulfed her vision..... her blood.
"NOOO!" Jun shot up from her bed, panting heavily. Before she could do anything, she leaned over the side and opened her mouth, only to allow a quick rush of vomit to hit her dorm's carpet. After a moment, she sat back up, her breathing beginning to slow down a bit. "A dream," she muttered hoarsely, raising off her bed to get a cloth from the bathroom.. and an energy drink.
Stopping at the small mini-fridge first, she grabbed the energy drink and popped the cap open, hastily pouring the cold liquid down her throat to wash out the horrible taste. After she'd drank the whole thing, she just let the can fall to the floor, then hastily snatched the sink cloth from the bathroom.
Walking over to the mess she made, she bent down to clean it, touching her cheek gently. She could feel the wetness from where she'd actually began to cry, causing her to let out a half-strangled choking noise, as if she hadn't gotten the last of the sobbing from her system. And seeing as she was here alone, she figured everyone had already gone to the Delta... great. She was alone, stranded, and freaked out.
Beginning to clean the mess on the floor, she gulped once and shook her head. "Just a dream," she muttered, as if trying to convince herself it was just that.
But she knew better. She'd played horror games before... or perhaps she really was just blowing this out of proportion. Either way, she would convince herself...
"It was just a dream.."
I personally love Jun D: And I was so sad of her short fate in the game. I felt ripped off that you couldn't save her.. So, I'm making her, her own story! :D Obviously that calls for major changes in the plot line, but that's always fun, right? Anyways, I'm hoping to get this one updated way faster than my other one [stupid writers block...] Wish me luck with that, ha-ha!
