The Lab

Skylar Fletcher and Ariel Drozdova hurried across the room carrying boxes of chemicals. They were in Icedclock laboratories, the number one Psychological studies laboratory in the city, South City. "Skylar this is the definition of Dangerous!" Ariel said in a joking voice, Skylar rolled her eyes "that just makes it awesome!" She retorted. Ariel made a face "true that." She said. Ariel set down her box and grabbed the big bottle they had, the bottle that would hold their brilliant creation. Just then a loud BANG! Sounded from another room, it shook the floor, knocking the box out of Skylar's hands, the box landed on the floor, glass shattered, chemicals met other chemicals, and unknown substances were sprayed all over Skylar and Ariel. "GAH!" Skylar and Ariel cried together, pulling off their lab coats as fast as they could. Ariel grabbed some paper towels, handing some to Skylar "who knows what lethal mixtures we were exposed to?" Ariel said in a panicked voice, "I don't know!" Skylar exclaimed, just then smoke started pouring into the lab, slipping in the open door to the Applied Sciences Division, Skylar's first thought was why is that door open? It requires a passkey just to open and it stays closed unless there is someone walking through. But she didn't have time to worry about that now, she grabbed Ariel's wrist and bolted for the emergency exit. Once she was outside she leaned over the railing, trying to judge the distance. "It's too far to jump!" She said to Ariel, Ariel looked down, "then we just have to run down until it IS safe to jump!" She yelled, grabbing Skylar's arm, she ran down the steps as fast as she could, hearing fast footsteps behind her. The scientists from the lab were escaping! If there was a fire everyone needed to be safe! Skylar pulled free of Ariel "go!" She said loudly "I need to make sure everyone gets out safely! Go Ariel! GO!" Without waiting for a response she started running back up, when she got to the door she held it open for everyone, then once they all seemed to be out she ran back inside to make sure, then, the atmospheric pressure in the room dropped tremendously and the door leading to the Applied Sciences Division crumpled into a metal ball and smoke started coming in faster. Surprised that she wasn't crushed, she ran out the door and started running down the stairs, halfway down she found Ariel, waiting for her. "Skylar!" She cried "I was worried you weren't coming back!" She hugged her friend tightly "I'm fine!" She cried "now let's get out of he-" Skylar's sentence was broken off by a massive explosion, throwing Skylar and Ariel over the railing and onto the ground.

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story. It still has some parts that are a little rough in terms of grammar, punctuation, and word usage, but it's still an awesome story. I love how detai...

Olivia N J Hamel: I want this book. I love it so much. It is so enjoyable to read and to have a copy of this always, I would be very happy, to always be able to come back and look at it again.

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...

DennisT: This is an excellent story by an author who writes very well. the only problem areas that I see relate to proofreading and editing. All of the stories by Vanessa are excellent, and I have read them all more than once. I had hoped that they would be better edited and proofread on this site, but it...

Diyfamilygarden: This is one of the best books I've ever read! The characters, the unique love and everything else in this book is so well written that it feels like you're there!

FateFellShort: I have read this story and have followed the writers on tumblr from the beginning. Its a wonderful story. Beautifully written with a really nice pace, that makes it enjoyable to read more than once. For me, fairy tail has very good characters but what the writers have done is give them more depth...
