Alice is a young girl on her last year of high school. She has a good life but there are things that she don’t know about her family. There are murders @ll over town and Alice is being framed and accused of these murders. Somehow there connected to the secrets of her family. Can Alice figure out what those secrets are before she gets in more trouble?
Before freshman year Alice didn’t really have any friends. She didn’t’ know how to blend like everyone else. When it became freshman year she had a whole new group of friends. Noah,Andy,Riley,Billy,and Aiden. They all became friends freshman year. Well her and Andy are dating but it was new for Alice back then.
Alice walked into school and met up with her friends.
“Hey guys.” Alice said. Everyone had a shocked look on their face. “What’s going on?”
“You didn’t hear?” Aiden asked.
“Hear about what?” Alice asked opening her locker.
“Randy Cooper and Emily Forey were murdered last night.” Riley said.
“What?!” Alice turned back around fast. “Do they know who did it?”
“No. But her parents saw her insides on the outsides.” Alice said.
“Oh so that’s why my dad wasn’t there this morning when I woke up.” Alice said.
“What do you mean?” Andy asked.
“He works at the police station with your mom.” Alice said pointing at Andy. Then the bell rang.
“I’ll see you guys later.” Noah said.
“See ya. Hey,you're the expert on this whole stuff maybe you can teach everybody else not to get killed.” Alice said.
Still standing there at my locker,Andy stayed there with me and started talking to me.
“So tomorrow I have another test. And I haven’t studied. You want to come over tonight and help me?” Andy asked.
“Sure. I just have to call my dad.” Alice said.
“Okay. I’ll see you at lunch.” Andy said kissing her on the forehead.
Alice only can call her dad. Her mom left them when she was 5. Alice’s parents were having issues back then. She was too young to understand but she knew they had some issues. Alice blamed herself for that. She thought that it was her fault. Her dad never left because he never thought that Alice was mistake. Her mom did,or that’s what Alice thought anyways.
Alice went to class and she sat down. Billy went in there too.
“Hey Billy.” Alice said.
“Hey. You have to stuff for our project?” Billy asked.
“Yes but since when do you care about school?” Alice asked.
“Since my parents told me that I couldn’t get a car until I get my grades up.” Billy said.
“They said that two years ago and you still haven’t done anything they’ve said.” Alice said.
“You going to support me or are just sit there and judge me?” Billy smirked.
“You going to make me do all of the work again?” Alice asked.
“Probably.” Billy said.
“Then no.” Alice said turning back around in her seat.
Alice’s and Billy’s project was on “The Benefits of Wildlife.” They had to do a whole presentation on it. Alice thought it was pretty stupid but she had to do it. She only does school for her dad. If it wasn’t for him she would have dropped out by now.
“Alice,you going to the party on rave street tonight?” Billy asked.
“No. I’m helping Andy cram for a test tomorrow but if he wants we can stop by there after.” Billy said.
“You should. There will be booze.” Billy said.
“Well after what happened last night. I don’t really know if they are going to have that party now.” Alice said.
“What do you mean?” Billy asked.
“Two high schoolers from this school were gutted last night.” Alice said.
“Oh yeah, I heard about that. I heard they went through this type of maze before they died. Wasn’t Emily’s guts on the outside of her body when her parents found her?” Billy asked.
“That’s what Riley told me.” Alice said.
“Well if it doesn’t happen again tonight well they might have the party. Riley,Noah,and Aiden are going. We should have the whole crew go.” Billy said.
“I will talk to Andy about it.” Alice said.
“Who do you think the killer is? It has to be guy.” Billy said. “It can’t be a girl.”
“That is sexist. Women are more than capable of picking up a knife and stabbing people with it. I mean it shouldn’t be that hard.” Alice said.
“Okay maybe but it’s not like you know. You’ve never stabbed anyone before.” Billy said.
“Actually….” Alice cut herself off.
“What?” Billy’s eyes got big.
“Well it was an accident but I did.” Alice said.
“What happened?” Billy asked.
“Had a knife in my hand,turned around and my dad was right there. And I kind of stuck it into his stomach.” Alice said.
“What a badass. Does Andy know?” Billy asked.
“Yeah he does. He came over for dinner one time and I got laughed at.” Alice said.
“Ha nice.” Billy laughed.
The bell rang and Billy and Alice’s project wasn’t even done. Alice thought it was pretty funny actually. She never really was a straight A student. She practically passed all her classes with C’s and that was good enough for her. As long as her dad was happy she was happy. It was hard for her dad because he was a single parent and he was holding on three jobs. Even though she couldn’t ask for a better dad she still missed him. Alice understands that she has barely any time with her dad but it still hurt to not see her dad.
Alice went to her next class and none of her friends were in there so she sat by herself. She wasn’t friends with anyone else. The class was English. She didn’t know what to do half the time but according to the teacher she was one of the smartest students in the class.
Someone came into the classroom and started talking to the teacher.
“Alice. You need to go to the principal's office.” Mr. Black said.
Alice grabbed her stuff and walked out the door. Someone was walking behind her. It’s like she was being escorted to the principal's office. “It’s not like I don’t know how to get the principal's office.” She thought. But at least she knows she won’t get lost at all now. Which has happened a lot. Alice walked in and sat down in the chair near the desk.
“Can I help you with something sir?” Alice asked.
“Yeah…..could you tell me what this is?” Mr. White asked.
“Oh my god. I wasn’t there last night.” Alice said. It was a picture of her in the background behind the dead of Randy Cooper.
“Alice,you need to calm down. But I need to know something.” Me.White said. Alice had angry look in her face. “Did you kill these two students?”
“Seriously?!” Alice said. “You are really asking me that question. Mr.White i've babysat your kids and you are like a second dad to me and you are asking me this question.”
“I’m sorry Alice but the evidence shows that you were there last night.” Mr.White said.
“I was out last night but I definitely wasn’t there.” Alice said.
“Then where were you?” He asked.
“With my friends.” Alice said. An officer was standing at the door.
“And where were you with your friends?” The officer asked.
“Uhhhh….we were at Riley’s house watching a movie.” Alice said.
“Are you sure about that?” The officer asked again.
“I’m pretty sure I know where I was last night.” Alice said.
“According to this picture you all were there last night.” The officer pulled a picture out of his puke brown folder. Alice literally thought it was puke.
“Wow if he can keep a folder like that how can he get a job like that.” Alice wondered. “We weren’t there last night.” Alice said standing up waving her hands.
“Alice,just calm down.” Mr.White said.
“No. It’s pretty sad that my second dad and a police officer is accusing me of something I didn’t do. Mr.White,how could you possibly think I could’ve done this?”
“I’m sorry,Alice.” Mr.White said.
“So I am.” Alice said picking up her bag. “You should find another babysitter for Amanda and Amy tomorrow night.” Alice walked out angrily.
“Alice!” Mr.White shouted.
“No. You should’ve known me better than that.” Alice said walking out.
The bell already rang and it was lunch time. Alice walked into the lunchroom and her friends were sitting right there at one of the tables.
“Oh there’s Alice.” Andy said.
“Hey guys.” Alice said sitting down.
“Where have you been? You weren't in third period.” Noah said.
“Where did you hear that?” Alice asked.
“Megan told me.” Riley blurted.
“I was in the principal's office getting questioned.” Alice said.
“Excuse me?” Andy said.
“Calm down. I think I can handle lecture from a principal and police officer.” Alice smirked.
“So what happened” Aiden asked.
“Well they accused us all at being at the murder last night.” Alice said.
“What?!” Billy said.
“What did you tell them?” Noah asked.
“Told them we were all at Riley’s house. Which we were.” Alice said. “Well that and I told them practically to shove it and walked out.”
“Ahh now I know why I’ve always loved you.” Andy said. Alice chuckled.
“Well what are we going to do?” Riley asked.
“Looks like we’re being framed.” Noah said. “And I guess we could set a trap for the killer but it would be suspicious if we all were there.”
“Okay why don’t me and Riley go and set trap for the killer.” Alice said.
“Are you crazy?” Andy asked.
“No. I’ll be fine.” Alice said. “I promise.
“Okay,what do we do?” Alice asked.
“Walk in the park anyone?” Billy asked. “Parks open all night tonight.”
“How would you know ?” Riley mumbled with food in her mouth.
“My mom is the owner of the park. She took over after the her partner died from a car crash.” Billy said.
“Oh okay.” Aiden said.
“How are we going to do this?” Alice asked.
“Well we can meet up at 5. And we can walk around for a little while until we find something?” Riley asked. Alice nodded. “Anyone want to join?”
“I’m in.” Noah said. “I’ll keep watch.”
“Me too. I’m not letting you go out there alone.” Andy said.
“Billy and I can’t.” Aiden said. “We have work.
“Okay. So just us then?” Alice asked.
“Looks like it.” Riley said. “Great I have to go. I’ll meet you at 5. See you later.”
“See you.” Everyone said.
Billy looked at Aiden but no one noticed. “We have to go to.” Billy said grabbing his bag and getting up. So did Aiden.
“I’m leaving too.” Noah said.
“Bye.” Alice smirked and waved. She looked over at Andy. “Are you going to leave too.”
“No. I’ll stay.” Andy said.
“Okay,good.” Alice said. “You pass your test?”
“Don’t know. Got to go back and get it this afternoon.” Andy said.
“Oh cool.” Alice said.
“So are you sure you want to do this?” Andy asked.
“I have to figure out why this is happening because if I don’t then nothing will seem right anymore. But what I can’t figure out is why they just talked to me not all of us.” Alice said.
“Maybe because he knows you better?!” Andy said.
“The principal does but the officer doesn’t.” Alice said.
“Okay so what about the picture. That doesn’t explain the fact that according to that picture we all were there last night so that means all of us are in it. All of us should be going.” Andy said.
“I noticed that Billy and Aiden were acting weird today.” Alice said.
“They are always weird.” Andy said.
“Is it weird that Billy cares more about his work and Aiden passed up going out tonight?” Alice asked.
“You are overthinking things.” Andy said.
“With how many horror movies we’ve together,maybe we were under thinking the fact that this sort stuff happens everyday.” Alice said.
“And you're basing that off of the horror movies we watch?” Andy asked.
“Yes I am. We have to base this off something in common.” Alice said.
“We watch horror movies with bow and arrows and spears. I don’t think that’s something you should base it off from.” Andy said.
“It’s a start.” Alice said. Andy gave her a look. “What do you think then?”
“I think that you are really overthinking this. And that you should be careful tonight. I don’t want you to go without me though.” Andy said.
“I will be fine.” Alice said.
“It’s either I go with you or you don’t go.” Andy said.
“Okay fine.” Alice said. Andy got up to throw away his food.
Andy sat back down and Alice was putting her stuff away. “Where are you going?”
“I have study hall next.” Alice said. “I have to finish this book on “The Benefits of Wildlife” for mine and Billy’s project.”
“Okay so are you coming with me after school or do you have your car?” Andy asked.
“I can go with you. I couldn’t find my keys this morning.” Alice said.
“You always lose your keys.” Andy said.
“And this is why my dad scheduled the bus for me.” Alice smirked. “Okay. We get out at 2:47,I’ll meet you at your car at 2:55.”
“Okay sounds great.” Andy kissed Alice and she walked away.
Alice went downstairs to this red-bricked room and sat there on the floor reading the book. She didn’t want to read it but she had to. In the past Alice wouldn’t even do her work but one night she got a letter from her mom. She reads it every day to her remind herself of what she has to do to make her dad happy. This letter wasn’t about forgiving her mother it was about making her and her dad happy.
I know growing up was hard without both parents. I know that things right now aren’t easy but you need to at least try. I may not talk to you because we don’t have the connection we used when you were little but I still talk to your dad sometimes. He tells me all about you. You are bright and adventurous and stubborn and you have a temper. But you lack to see what you can do in life. You can do whatever you set your mind to.
I know what you’re thinking. By reading this you thinking that I’m going to go back home. I’m sorry but I’m not. I can’t. Things have happened there that I can’t really explain to you. There are things you don’t know. One day you will. Let’s hope it’s not now. Do me a favor grow up. Cause trouble but not to much. Be a teenager and when you're ready you will know something that will change your life. And if you won’t do it for me do it for you and your father. I love you Alice.
Your loving parent
Alice didn’t really know what she meant by that but she guessed that she was going to. At least one day. She did what her mother told her to do. Alice caused a lot trouble in lower grades. She was a teenager. Alice thought sometimes she brought it too far. She caused fights and started drinking and sometimes smoking. Sometimes she ran away and got arrested for being out for 24 hours.
Alice sat there the whole time and didn’t say anything to anyone. The phone rang for the teacher.
“Brenda?!” Someone said.
“Coming.” Brenda. She picked up the phone and started talking. “Uh...yes I’ll send her right down.” She put the phone back up. “Alice? Your dad’s here and he would like to see you.”
“My dad?” Alice asked getting up.
I walked down the hall and up the stairs. The whole school was like a maze. When I got to the office my dad was sitting right there.
“Dad, what are you doing here?” Alice asked.
“The principal called me. You walked out of there?” Her dad asked.
“Would you stay in a room with people when you're being accused of something that you didn’t do?” Alice talked back.
“Accused of what?” He asked.
“Dad,not here.” Alice said.
“Yes here.” He starting walked towards the front desk.
“Dad.” Alice said pulling his arm. “Not here. I don’t need the whole school wondering about it.”
“Since when do you care about what people think?” Her dad asked.
“Accusing someone of murder isn’t something you should be sharing.” Alice said quietly so no one could hear.
“Yeah we will talk about it tonight.” Her dad said walking towards the doors. “What time will you be home?”
“I’m going to Andy’s after school to help him study and then made plan with the guys 10 okay?” Alice asked.
“No later. If you stay out a little longer call me and make sure you’re with Andy. Or even the guys.” Her dad said.
“Okay. Love you.” Alice said hugging her dad.
“Love you too. Please be careful tonight.” Her dad said.
Alice walked back to her class and sat down against the brick wall again.
“Everything okay?,” Brenda asked.
“Yeah, it’s fine. Thanks,” Alice said.
Alice’s phone vibrated in her back pocket and she took it out. It was a phone call from a random number she’d never seen before.
“Hey,my dad is calling me now and I don’t know why,can I step out for a min?” Alice asked.
“Yup,” Brenda nodded.
Alice went around the corner and answered the call. “Hello,”
“Alice,” A voice said. “Please help me.”
“Riley?,” Alice asked.
“Alice, you gotta help me. I’m scared. You gotta come quick,” Riley said crying.
“Riley,slow down. Where are you?,” Alice asked.
“I don’t know. Some warehouse in the middle of town. It’s like a maze in here. It took me an hour to find this phone.” Riley said.
“Okay. Riley calm down. I’m coming. Just find a place to hide,” Alice said.
“Okay,” Riley said catching her breathe.
“And Riley,” Alice said. “Be careful. I’m on my way.” She hung up the phone and went back into the class.
“Hey sorry. I got to go. Family emergency.” Alice said picking up her things.
“Okay.” Brenda said back.
Alice walked upstairs to her locker and texted Andy. “Andy I need your help. S.O.S now.”
Alice was freaking out. She didn’t know what to do. She unlocked her locker and threw everything in it.
Andy came around the corner. “Hey,what’s going on?”
“Riley,” Alice blurted.
“What? What happened to Riley? Andy asked.
“I don’t know but we have to go get her.” Alice said.
“We have to call the police.” Andy said.
“No!” Alice yelled. “I think this is the thing that my mom was talking about.”
“What’s going on out here?!” Someone came out and blurted.
“Nothing. We’re good.” Andy said. Alice was crying.
“Please.” Alice whined.
“Hey. It’s okay. We will get her back.” Andy said hugging her.
“Then let’s go.” Alice said pulling his arm.
Andy and Alice ran down the stairs and they just left. They didn’t even sign out. Andy got in the driver's seat and Alice got in the passenger seat. Andy pu the key in the ignition and left.
“Alright,where are we going?” Andy asked.
“The warehouse on Rave street.” Alice said.
“Have you heard from the guys?” Andy asked.
“No,you?,” Alice asked.
“No.” Andy said. “Maybe we should call the police.”
“We should.” Alice picked up her phone and a call was coming in. “Unknown number?”
“Answer it and put it on speaker.” Andy said.
“Okay.” Alice said. “Hello?”
“You call the police and your friends die.”
“Who is this?” Alice asked.
“Oh Alice you really don’t know what’s going on do you?” A voice asked. “Well you're on the show.”
“What show?” Alice asked.
“Save one your friends are in there part just got cut already.” The voice said. It sounded like a man.
“Where are they?” Alice asked.
The man made clicking sounds. “That’s not how it works.”
“Where are they?!” Alice yelled.
“You know exactly where they buy you must play the games to figure it out.” The man said.
“What game?” Alice asked.
“You got to figure it out but you better hurry,clocks ticking.” The man said hanging up.”
“Game?” Alice asked whispering. “The game.”
“What are you talking about?” Andy asked.
“There was this game that we all use to play. Us and the guys but I don’t remember what it was.”
“Are you talking about hide and seek?” Andy asked.
“Yes. But when we played we made it our game. We made our own rules. But how would he know?” Alice wondered.
“Maybe someone was watching.” Alice said. “Stop.” Andy pressed on the breaks. “Right there.”
“This warehouse?” Andy asked. “It’s like a maze in there.”
“That’s the of hide and seek remember. We made mazes to make it more fun.” Alice said opening her door. “You coming or what.” Andy gave her a look. “Look is I don’t save her she’s going to end up dead and then it will be my fault so please.”
Andy got out of the car and they both headed towards the door. Alice tried to knock. Andy stopped her.
“Whoa,are you crazy? You're gonna get us killed.” Andy said.
“You got any better ideas?” Alice said.
“Yeah as a matter of I do.” Andy said. Andy opened the door.
“Are you trying to get us killed?” Alice whispered.
“It’s better than knocking and being loud.” Andy said. “Well what do we do now?”
“Get through the maze.” Andy said grabbing Alice’s hand. “Turn on your phone light.”
“Okay.” Alice said. “Here.”
“Thanks.” Andy took the phone. “You stay with me.”
“Don’t really have much of a choice.” Alice smirked.
“Just lets go.” Andy said grabbing her hand.
Alice and Andy went through the door and went through a long hallway. It was weird because it was like the killer was waiting for Alice. There was a red line painted on the floor going in the direction they need to be going. When they got a long ways down there was a dead end. They either needed to go to the right or the left.
“Which way do we go?” Alice asked.
“Good question.” Andy said.
“Split up?” Alice asked.
“You would just like to get yourself killed,wouldn’t you?” Andy asked.
“No but we don’t know which way to go.” Alice said.
“Why don’t we look it up?” Andy said.
“How the hell are we supposed to look that up?” Alice asked.
“There’s this thing on the internet that shows the directions to the rave maze but this great. No signal.” Andy said.
“Then choose which way we go.” Alice said.
“Okay then right.” Andy said. “Ready go. Run,”
Alice and Andy ran through the right hall. They heard a noise.
“Oh my god,did you hear that?” Alice panicked.
“Run. Faster!” Andy said.
Alice and Andy found a door. They walked threw it and that was it. They heard someone from inside the room.
“Help me.” A boy said.
“Noah!” Alice yelled.
“Noah are you okay?” Andy asked.
“I have a knife in my leg and my hands are tied. Do I look like I’m okay?” Noah was scared.
“Sorry. This is gonna be hurt.” Andy pulled the knife out of Noah’s leg
“Ow. You could’ve gave me a warning.” Noah blurted.
“Then you would thought about.” Andy said. Then they heard another noise.
“Guys we need to get out of here.” Alice said. “We need to find Riley.”
“I saw her earlier. But I don’t know where she went.” Noah said.
“Well let’s go. We have to find her.” Alice said. “Can you walk?”
“Do I look like I can walk?” Noah asked sarcastically.
“Then hold on to me and Alice.” Andy said.
“Just go find Riley.” Noah said.
“We aren’t leaving you here.” Alice said.
“Then what are we going to do?” Noah asked.
“Try this.” Alice found a wheelchair behind her. They both gave her look. “Get in the chair.”
Alice,Noah,and Andy went ran out the door back into the maze. They had no idea where they were going. They kept hitting dead ends. Noah kept freaking out and thought he was going to hit something with how fast Andy was running. Noah wanted him to slow down but everytime they did they would hear a noise. They needed to keep going but they didn’t no where to go. They came to another 4-way.
“Since we went right last time,let’s go left.” Alice said.
“I don’t know. Can we just go back and just leave?” Andy asked.
“An/d leave Riley? I don’t think so.” Alice said.
“Then what way?” Andy asked.
“Uhh….left.” Alice said starting to run with Andy pushing Noah right behind her.
Alice’s dad was still at work but he usually get a text from Alice before he left work. He got nothing and school was already done. He got worried. He knew there must have been something wrong. Since Alice’s dad is a cop he could track his daughter’s phone. He always had to do that because she always keeps losing everything. When he tracked her phone and something was weird.
“What is she doing on Rave street?” He asked himself. He picked up his jacket and started to put it on when someone stopped him.
“Bill,where are you going?” His partner John asked.
“To find my daughter.” Bill said. “She’s at that warehouse on Rave street and I don’t know if her boyfriend is with her.”
“Oh,isn’t that where those two kids were killed?” John asked.
“Yeah.” Bill said.
“How’d you know she was there?” John asked.
“I figured out how to find the exact place to track a phone. I just zoomed in sommore.” Bill said.
“Nice. Want some back up?” John asked. Bill just looked at him. “Let’s go.”
Alice,Andy, and Noah was still running around the maze. Until they found another door. They opened the door and went inside. The heard someone.
“Mmmm.” Someone moaned. “Mmmmm.” They turned around.
“Riley!” Alice blurted. Andy and Alice ran over to her and untied her.
Andy ripped the tape off her mouth. “Ouch.” Riley said.
“Are you Okay?” Noah asked.
“Yeah. Just a little bruised and you tied up.” Riley said.
“That’s not funny.” Alice said.
“What’s going on?” Riley asked.
“You got kidnapped and now your asking what’s going on?” Alice asked.
“Later. Just let’s get out of here.” Andy said.
“Wait how many rooms have you been to?” Riley asked.
“Why?” Noah asked.
“Cause if you found Noah and I in these two rooms then you haven’t been to the last one and I’m guessing that is where we meet this killer.” Riley said.
“How do you know this?” Noah asked.
“I’ve been through this whole warehouse before someone actually got me.” Riley said.
“How did you get away the first time?” Alice asked.
“Grabbed a bar that was in front of me and hit him in the head and I just started running. Then maybe 30 minutes later someone got me again.” Riley said.
“Was that after you called me?” Alice asked.
“I didn’t call you.” Riley said.
“Yes you did. You called me from unknown number.” Alice said.
“That wasn’t me.” Riley said.
“The killer must have disguised his voice to make it sound like Riley.” Andy said.
“Must have. I can’t find my phone and I haven’t found another phone.” Riley said.
“Well let’s find that room and end this for good.” Andy said.
Andy,Alice, Riley, and Noah were all finally together. But still something didn’t feel right to Alice. Where is Billy and Aiden? Them talking about work wasn’t like them. None of them knew they even had a job. She didn’t think they did.
They were all outside running around the maze and Andy,Alice and Noah didn’t know where to go.
“There are way too many four-ways in this place.” Alice said.
“Riley,which way do we go?” Andy asked.
“Uhhh.” Riley stuttered.
“You don’t remember.” Noah blurted.
“Just give me a minute.” Riley pointed. “Right.” They all ran to the right “Keep going to the straight.”
They all just wanted to leave but not without getting through the maze. No one knew how to get back through.
“There.” Riley said.
“Wait.” Alice said stopping. “Do you hear that?”
“Sirens.” Andy said.
“Who called the police?” Noah asked.
“I didn’t.” Riley said.
“Doesn’t matter, let's go.” Andy said.
Riley opened the down so Andy could push Noah in.
“Is this where they died?” Alice asked.
“I think so. I mean it’s big but they dragged them through here to back to Emily’s house and that was the end of it.” Riley said.
“What do we do now?” Alice asked. Suddenly Alice’s phone started to ring.
“How? There’s no service here.” Andy said.
“I guess he’s smarter than we thought he was.” Alice said. She answered the phone.”
“What do you want?”
“Oh Alice. It’s the final act but your friends don’t have to be here to see it.” The man said.
“This isn’t a movie.” Alice yelled.
“Ahhhhh.” Riley started screaming.
“Riley,what’s the matter?” Alice asked.
“Ahhhhh,I don’t know. Ahhhhhh” Riley started crying.
“Stop now. What do you want?” Alice asked.
“I want you to know the truth.” The man said.
“What are you talking about? The truth about what?” Alice asked.
“The truth about family.” The man came out from behind a curtain but there was two of them. But there was a mask on both of their faces.
“There’s two of you.” Noah said.
“Take off the masks.” Andy said.
“TAKE THEM OFF.” Alice yelled.
They turned around and took off the masks. They all thought something looked familiar about the back of their heads. The killers turned back around.
“Oh my god. Billy,Aiden.” Alice said.
“Surprise.” Billy said.
“Why would you do this?” Alice asked.
“I don’t know Aiden,should we tell her?” Billy asked.
“I don’t know. Maybe we should make her figure it out.” Aiden said.
“Maybe we should ask her.” Billy said.
“What do you think dear sister?” Aiden asked Alice.
“What?” Alice was shocked by what Aiden said.
“Yeah. Dad didn’t tell you?” Billy asked.
“Where is are loving dad?” Aiden asked. “If I know him at all he should be looking for his little girl.”
“You guys don’t have to do this? Just talk to me. Tell me what happened.” Alice said.
“Alice,what are you doing?” Andy whispered.
“Guys if I’m your sister then you will talk to me.” Alice said.
“That’s not how it works.” Billy said.
“Billy I know you. I also know you Aidan. My dad use to babysit you guys. I never knew why since our parents didn’t like each other. But we lost touch after that whole fight and now look at us.” Alice said
“NO!” Billy shouted. “Mom and dad should have never gave up on us.” Billy took a knife out.
“People don’t deserve to die because your parents gave you up.” Riley said.
“No they didn’t. But she does.” Billy said pointing at Alice.
“Your not going to touch her.” Andy said.
“That’s funny how you think you can stop us.” Billy said getting his face.
“I have an idea.” Aiden said.
“What’s your idea?” Billy asked.
“Alice watched her friends die and she stabs herself.” Aiden said.
“That’s a wonderful idea.” Billy said.
“You guys see it.” Andy whispered.
“Yup.” Alice whispered back.
“You guys thinking what I’m thinking?” Andy asked.
“Yup.” Alice said.
Billy turned around. They looked like they were going along with what was happening but they weren’t. “What are you guys doing?”
“Waiting.” Andy said. “Now.”
Andy pushed Noah toward them. Alice ran towards the right and Riley ran to the left. Billy went after Riley and Aiden went after Alice. They saw a gun sticking out of the corner. Andy grabbed it. Aiden grabbed a hold of Alice and Billy grabbed a hold of Riley.
“Andy don’t be stupid.” Billy said.
“Let them go.” Andy swing pointing the gun at each of them.
“Put the gun down if they die right here.” Billy said.
“Andy don’t,their bluffing.” Alice said.
“Are we.” Andy said.
“I can’t watch you die.” Andy said putting down the gun.
“Good choice.” Aiden said letting go of Alice. Billy let go of Riley too.
When Aiden let go of Alice she dropped to the floor and grabbed the gun. She sit it at Billy and shot him in the arm. “Riley run.”
“Aiden get her.” Billy shouted.
Riley ran out the door back out to the maze. She didn’t know where she was going. She just started running and didn’t stop. Riley was running so fast that her hair was blowing in her face. She couldn’t remember where she was going.
Alice,Andy and Noah was still in the room. Alice was still holding the gun to Billy.
“Billy,” Alice yelled. Billy turned around. “You move,I shoot.”
“Oh come one Alice,your not going to shoot me again. I’m your brother.” Billy said being cocky. He was still having blood ooze out of his shoulder.
“I did it once I’ll do it again.” Alice said.
“We’ll see.” Billy said. He got up and ran towards her. Alice kept shooting at him and he wasn’t going down.
“Alice,head. Head Alice.” Andy yelled. “Shoot him the head.”
“They always come back,don’t they?” Alice asked.
“Never know.” Andy said.
“Uh...guys.” Noah said. “We should probably go find Riley.”
“Good idea.” Andy said.
Alice was shocked that she saw someone. Especially her own family that took this long to figure out. Andy grabbed Noah and Alice and him went out the door back into the maze to find Riley. They had no idea where they were going. They felt like they were going to circles.
Riley was still running. Aiden was still running after her and couldn’t catch her but still knew where she was going. She was wearing high heels and and it made the whole maze echo off the walls. And Aiden knew the whole maze by heart so that also helped too.
“Riley.” Aiden said. “There is nowhere to hide.”
Riley found the front door and she went out it. The police was outside.
“Freeze.” A police officer said.
“Wait. Don’t shoot.” Riley said.
“Wait stop.” Bill,Alice dad came running up. “Riley,what are you doing here?”
“It’s Aiden and Billy. They are the killers.” Riley said.
“Riley.” Aiden yelled coming out the door.
“Freeze.” Bill pulled his gun out. Aiden tried to get around the police but he couldn’t get around. “Get down on your knees and put your hands behind your head.” Alice,Andy, and Noah came running out. “Alice.”
“Dad.” Alice said.
“Are you okay?” Bill asked his daughter.
“Yeah, we are okay.” Alice said.
“Come on. Let’s get you guys checked out.” Bill said.
After Alice got checked out she walked around with her dad. She saw Aiden get out in a police car. She overheard that Aiden is going to go a mental institution until he’s 18. That ps most likely what’s going to happen and then he’ll go to jail. But that will be up to the judge.
“Did you and mom give up Billy and Aiden because of me?” Alice asked her dad.
“No honey.” Bill said. “We gave them up because they had a disorder. It’s like bipolar but it’s worse. And eventually it got worse than it already was. And we didn’t know how to handle them so we had to get them some help and they went into an institution. When the doctors were convinced that they got better they asked us if we wanted them back. We did but when we knew that we were having you we couldn’t risk it. They went to a loving family and we didn’t know that they went to your school until you made friends with them.”
“Oh so why weren’t they split up?” Alice asked.
“They’re brothers. They only had each other so they couldn’t.” Bill said. “Look,we loved the boys but we just know how to handle their disorder.”
“Maybe You should go tell Aiden that but Billy I don’t think you can.” Alice said.
“Why?” Bill asked. The doctor brought out Billy on a gurney.
“You shot him?” Bill asked. Alice put her head down. “Wait.” Bill ran over to cop car and opened the door. “I’m sorry.”
“Don't you think it’s a little too late to say sorry?” Aiden asked.
Bill backed away from the car and the police car drove off. Aiden and Billy had each other but now that Billy is dead Aiden had no one. Or did he? Was it the end of this tragic story about a girl that didn’t know her family. Alice wondered about that since all these killings were about her. But maybe it was the end. Alice just had to wait and see.
