ELM STREET KIDS

DISCLAIMER

Crossover between Saved By The Bell and Nightmare On Elm Street. Yes, I'm obsessed. Deal with it. For those who don't know the premise of Nightmare On Elm Street, it revolved the idea of teens being murdered in their sleep. In the 3rd movie, they introduced the idea of kids having dream powers. I use the name Deke Simmons from Good Morning Miss Bliss, but I'm tweaking him to my own imagination. And I usually give background information how certain characters would know each other, but that will be explained in the progression of the story, and if you've read Elm Street Interludes, you will understand the relationship between Deke, Cheryl, and Zack. Belongs to New Line Cinema, Wes Craven, and NBC. Takes place of Rent-A-Pop in season two. I'm assuming Screech and Zack live on the same street since Screech was over a lot and Zack brought over his tricycle in "Beauty And The Screech" without mentioning whether or not his mom dropped him off.

CHAPTER ONE: FRIGHT NIGHT

Cheryl Burkham walked around slowly, her eyes darting right and left. There was a squeak and she jumped.

"Chill out, Cheryl," she chided. There was no way he could be back. She had been checking all week. In fact, she was starting to worry that if she kept going in, she might stir the freak up again. But she just had to be sure. It was her responsibility. There came another squeak and she had to fight the urge to call on her friends. They'd be ticked if they were pulled in here and there was nothing wrong. She walked up to an old familiar boiler. Cheryl nervously walked up to it. It's gonna be cold again, you wimp, she chided herself. She reached out and nervously touched it. It was cold. She gave a sigh of relief. Then, she heard a familiar chorus.

One, two, Freddy's coming for you.

Three, four, better lock your door.

Five, six, grab your crucifix.

Seven, eight, gonna stay up late.

Nine, ten, never sleep again.

Cheryl gasped and turned around. To her surprise, three girls were playing jump rope. Suddenly, the boiler came to life. Cheryl screamed as a burning sensation filled her hand. She started to run from the boiler, but only got a few feet before her feet sunk into the ground, which had melted without warning. Without warning, she felt knives embed themselves in her shoulder! She screamed and pulled away. There was a sinister chuckle.

"Can't escape me, piggy," a voice said. Cheryl yelped as she was grabbed again and yanked towards the boiler.

"Deke! Zack! Help me!" she screamed, struggling against the hold. Zack Morris grunted as he landed on the floor. Oh, jeez, he thought to himself. Hearing a scream, he got up and scrambled towards the sound.

"NO!" he shouted, when he saw the sight. He grabbed a piece of glass that had broken in his fall, ran up, and jammed the glass in the man's shoulder. He roared and released the girl, who quickly fell over and then stood beside her friend. Fred Krueger lunged at Zack, knocking him to the ground.

"ZACK!" Cheryl yelled. She started for Krueger, but was thrown back with a wave of the man's hand. Zack struggled underneath the man's weight. A blade cut into his neck.

"NOOOO!" he shouted. The room shook, and Krueger released him. The plaster in the wall faded away as it was systematically taken down.

"Dude, warn us next time," Deke Simmons stated.

"What took you so long?" Zack wondered.

"I got turned around. I've got super strength, not x-ray vision," Deke answered. He fell silent as a shadow fell over them. They all looked to see Krueger, larger than before.

"RUN!" Deke shouted. They took off and managed to find the door that led them out of the room. The trio leaned against it, keeping it shut as a banging noise was heard.

"GET US OUT OF HERE, CHERYL! DO IT NOW!" Deke shouted. Cheryl concentrated and the three disappeared. With a startled yelp, Cheryl bolted up. She let out a pained groan.

"Ow," she whispered, cradling her hand. She reached into her drawer, where she kept her first aid kit and tended to the injury. In his room, Deke looked around frantically. Where was he? He became relieved to find himself back in his room.

"Dang. That was way too close," he said to himself. With a gasp, Zack jerked awake. He brought a trembling hand to his neck, where blood seeped through his fingers.

"No. He's back," he whispered hoarsely.
