Alisha Stanton’s excitement about her college’s basketball team’s victory carried her down to the game floor, screaming with the crowd while holding onto her roommate, Taffeda Parks, for support. Her sweet soprano voice hit that glass-shattering note, extremely pure and full of energy, bouncing off the walls with the rest of the lightening. The Dolphins of Olsen Beach Community College had won the game of all games; sending them to the finals - totally undefeated. She pulled Taffy along at tow, being jerked at a dead stop every now and then, because the drop dead gorgeous blond-bombshell felt the need to lip-lock every 'single' player on the team. Soon, Coach Jenkins called his team to the locker room, and the crowd started the move out. The excitement of the after-game parties were just a hop-skip-and jump away from the campus, right down Society Street. All the Fraternity and Sorority houses are hosting the party extravaganza this year, and there was no way Alisha was going to miss it. She was so ready to thrash; her auburn hair braided into a Brazilian waterfall down her back and her outfit carefully selected for such an elite event. She was all ready to go but, will she get there at all? "Taffy, let's go! Get off of him!" Alisha was determined to just leave her friend where she was, glued to Rodan Jenkins, who didn't seem to mind her presence. Time was a wasting. If they didn’t leave now, they’ll lose out of all the good parking and will have to park several blocks away. She was about to blow a gasket. "Taffy, if I have to say it one - more - time..." "Alright! Sorry. Just wanting to help myself, ya know." Taffy turned her eyes away from where her feet were pointed, blowing a seductive kiss through the mayhem, so Rodan could capture it in his palm. "Hey, I'll call you!", he yelled out before jogging behind his teammates. Lisha shook her head, "I can't go anywhere with you..." Taffy bubbled gleefully, still being dragged through the crowd. ******* "Come on, hurry up! We're already late as it is!" Alisha called back to Taffeda, trying to hurry her along as she herself jogged through the dark forest, using one of the flashlights a Junior had offered them as a guide. Alisha wasn’t sure why she opted to follow this group of upperclassmen. She recognized a few faces, like Kai Raines, but the other three guys, one of them being a Senior, she’s never seen them before on campus, or even around Kai. Taffeda – that’s why she chose to leave such a happening block party. When Kai and the upperclassmen invited them to another get-together, Taffy wanted to go because her eyes were set on Kai. They’ve known him ever since they started Olsen Beach, and Taffy’s always shown that she has the hots for him, but he’s never acknowledge it. “This might be my night, Lisha,” Taffy begged. “Please, just come with me. I don’t want to go alone. I’ll be able to talk to Kai, ya know. I promise we won’t stay long, K?” Alisha shook her head as she followed the group further away from Society Street, towards the old industrial park that sat behind the campus near Bruckner Bay. “Hey Kai, where exactly is this other party?” she asked as she pushed aside dead branches out of her way. “The old Fusion Electrical plant; some of our buddies are there already setting up. The team’s planning on heading there after making an appearance on Society Street. It’s suppose to be upperclass only, but you two are an exception cause you’re with me.” When they broke through the clearing, Alisha stopped dead in her tracks beside Kai. The moon, as it broke through the dark veil of the nighttime clouds, casted an eerie glow against the abandoned energy plant. "Is it just me, Lisha...or does this feel like the beginning of a terribly cliché horror movie?" Alisha looked at Taffeda with that, ‘I can’t believe you just said that’ look, before rolling her eyes and following the group towards the only building lit up. “Come on, girls. We’re almost there,” one of the other guys said as his eyes fell upon Alisha. Her skin began to crawl. She knew it wasn’t a good idea to go with a bunch of strangers to a isolated place, but Kai was there. He wouldn’t let anything happen to his friends, right? Alisha wrapped her arm around Taffeda’s shoulders and the two girls followed the others through the last stretch of the woods. They saw that there were other people there. A few were standing in the woods, smoking weed, drinking whatever they had in their cups, doing other things they really shouldn’t do. It looked as if the party was more outside than in. There were others who just stood around chatting with people, mingling around small barrel fires like a bunch of hobo’s from downtown. A few faces she recognized as she passed by. Others… no telling who they were.
