Written for my Paranormal25 Prompt Table. #36: Other Haunted Location


The moment they'd rushed into the hallway there'd been nothing.

No ghost.

No ectoplasm.

No mysterious monster.

Nothing.

That didn't mean they let down their guard any as they continued walking down the hallway.

"What are you doing here?" Chloe hissed to Sam, unable to see him properly in the shadows. Though the girl had left her flashlight behind she could notice something different in the boy. "And when did you grow so tall?"

He cleared his throat. "Last year. Growth spurt." He turned at a sound, but it was nothing. "What are you doing here?"

"I'm on a hunt, we both are. And this is our territory." Chloe narrowed her eyes at him. "And I'm going to admit to being like a dog when it comes to being territorial."

"What's with the Armed To The Teeth thing?" Dean, Sam's older brother, wanted to know from the front. "And aren't you two a little young to be playing with such heavy machinery?"

Lois cocked her gun.

"Lois." Chloe warned, sensing her cousin's murderous aura.

Reluctantly, the older girl sighed and pointed the gun away from Dean.

"You two should go back home to your Barbie dolls and leave the hunting to the adults." Dean announced. "It's not safe for..."

Chloe cocked her gun.

"Look." Dean sighed, hearing the sound. "Just because your father was a hunter doesn't mean..."

"I've been doing this for two years, Winchester. So shut up." Chloe glared, pushing passed them. "If you don't like it, then you can leave. We were here first anyway."

"Bye bye." Lois waved all too happily before hurrying forwards after her cousin.

"Dean..." They could hear Sam saying behind them.

"Dammit."

The Winchesters hurriedly caught up with the duo, who'd turned the corner and stopped when they found their path barred by a huge metal gate.

"What's a gate doing inside of a school?" Lois wanted to know, eyes narrowed.

"Good question, Rambina." Dean arrived by the brunette's side, sliding the strap of the heavy duffle bag from her shoulder and slipping it onto hers. "Shut up and don't complain." He cut her off when he saw her glare. "This is heavy shit, okay? It'll slow you down if we have to make another run for it, and I'm not going back for you if you fall behind."

"Fine." Lois narrowed her eyes at him before deciding he wasn't worth the effort, plus, the bag had been heavy. "So I'm guessing that gate is made out of cast iron."

"I'm guessing you're right." Sam nodded.

"They're keeping something up in there." Chloe trailed her fingers over the padlock. "The lock has scratch marks on it. It's been tampered with."

Dean's flashlight went to the padlock. "You think the kids that got massacred two nights ago went beyond these gates?"

"I remember something like this..." Chloe frowned, bringing a hand to her forehead as she tried to remember more of the vision she'd had when she'd touched the survivor. "He closed this to try and keep something between him and it. It stopped by the gates. He doesn't realize that he saved his life that way."

"How do you know all of this?" Dean frowned.

Chloe turned to Sam in surprise. "You never told him?"

He shook his head, looking vaguely uncomfortable.

"Never told me what?" Dean narrowed his eyes.

The blonde paused before realizing that it made no sense to try and hide it. "I See things by touching people. I Saw what happened to those kids. At least to the ones the survivor personally witnessed being slaughtered." She turned to look at the darkness beyond the gate. "And I know that what we're looking for is beyond these bars."

Dean turned his light on her. "Are you shitting me?"

She glared at him and brought her hand up to shield her gaze. "No."

Sam reached over and pushed down his brother's hand, lowering the blinding light from her face.

Dean turned to look at his brother. "She's a psychic?"

"Look, let's save the talking for later?" Chloe put back in her Tomcat and pulled out the Taurus. She took aim and shot, destroying the padlock with a loud bang, before putting back her Taurus and retrieving her Tomcat once more. "Now, I don't know how Winchesters hunt, but Sullivan-Lanes do less talking." Pushing the gates wide open, she took in a deep breath and walked into the darkness, quickly followed by Lois and her flashlight.

Dean turned to Sam. "Can I shoot her?"

Sam rolled his eyes and followed after the girls.

"Is that an 'I'll think about it'?" Dean wanted to know as he followed after. But as they were consumed by the impossible darkness of the hallway, they fell into silence, walking closer together.

Sometime during the silent walk Lois had fallen behind with Dean, while Sam and Chloe took up the front, everyone's eyes peeled.

Everyone's hair stood on their bodies.

They weren't there alone.

Suddenly Lois screamed as the ground beneath her gave way into water and she fell through.

Before Dean could reach her the ground had become solid once more.

"LOIS!" Chloe screamed, rushing to where her cousin had been seconds ago, collapsing to her knees and banging her Tomcat against the floor viciously. "DAMMIT! LET HER GO!"

"I knew you two shouldn't have come." Dean looked around. "You're too young, you're not prepared---."

The wall reached out for him like rubber and dragged him into it in the blink of the eye.

"DEAN!" Sam screamed, rushing to the now solid wall.

On her knees on the ground, Chloe looked up at Sam. "This isn't what I saw either." She stood. "How many different things are they in this damned place?!?"

Sam turned to her. "They're separating us. Making us more vulnerable alone."

"I know." She ran a shaky hand over her head.

Suddenly tentacles reached down from the ceiling and wrapped themselves around Sam, yanking him up into the ceiling.

He disappeared as well.

"Shit." Chloe whispered, left alone in the dark.

At least the others, wherever they were, had their flashlights.

Taking in a deep breath, Chloe tried to calm herself, to remind herself that she'd been hunting by herself before even Lois had started. She could do this. She could. All she needed to do was breathe in and out, and keep calm. She needed to think of her next move and...

A sound echoed behind her.

Closing her eyes for a second, Chloe slowly turned and opened them.

And when she did, she saw a vague, monstrous outline in the shadows.

This was what she'd Seen.

The blonde aimed the Tomcat at the being and fired.

The rock salt went through without any effect.

"Oh shit."

She quickly put the Tomcat away and pulled out the Taurus, firing the normal bullets dipped in holy water.

Nothing.

The being just continued stalking towards her.

"Oh shit!" The blonde turned and began racing into the darkness ahead of her. "Shit!"

DAMN, that was scary! I hope Chloe's able to come up with some plan to stop that thing, and to get back Lois, Sam and Dean.

Really? I find it hard to write horror that I feel is actually scary, so that's good to know! :D

Great ironic opening line - because of course there will be something.

</i>"Now, I don't know how Winchesters hunt, but Sullivan-Lanes do less talking."

Dean turned to Sam. "Can I shoot her?"

Sam rolled his eyes and followed after the girls.

"Is that an 'I'll think about it'?"</i>

Hee! Too bad the ... building?... put an end to the snark. Although my sadistic little heart loves that you separated them -- nothing more terrifying than having to face the faceless monster alone, with no help/answers!

Stepping away from the story, I really enjoyed the structure -- catchy opener, great meet-cute set-up: nice exposition on Chloe's power, nice fore-shadowing Dean/Lois hint with the bag (I'm assuming it's foreshadowing...), nice (as noted) testy beginning to Dean & Chloe's relationship -- and then the horror very efficiently begins. I really admire how you managed to get all those elements into the story so neatly.

Thanks so very much! Yes, that *is* a hint of dean/lois foreshadowing (some VERY new ground for me, by the way, and I'm nervous about it. lol) I'm so happy you're enjoying :) I'll be updating soon!

Dean is just thinking about their safety, since Chloe is fourteen and Lois is sixteen and their hunting without an experienced hunter (aka adult) so he doesn't like it. He's trying to be protective, but going about it all wrong.

Man, Dean totally earned that one. Actually, I think they all earned it by going on when they didn't know what was in there, but Dean really earned it by trying to tell someone armed with that much stuff that she couldn't handle herself.

More to the point, does Dean have to get Sam in trouble by association? Because I'm willing to be Lois is going to lump Sam in with Dean on the 'you're feeble girlies' thing he's got going. And how's Sam gonna land Chloe then? Lois'll be sabotaging him every chance she gets.

I eagerly await whatever tortures you have devised for our poor heroes.

He did, didn't he? *grins* I know, you do *not* tell someone with more weapons on them than Rambo that they can't do something.

Oh my, I'm absolutely loving this!!! Chloe and Lois are utterly hilarious! And then adding Dean and Sam to the mix? Complete awesomeness!!

Love the snark and banter between the foursome and really loving the suspense and mystery with what's going on in the school.

This is another brilliant story by you and I definitely can't wait to read more!!!
