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.

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

ElusiveBadwolf: I loved this book so much! It's a shame that i already came to the end of this. I really enjoyed the story, and i liked it how everything became in the end. It was a great book and i can say that you are a great writer too. Keep it that way and i think you can make it in the writing business!

Dina Husseini: It was a great hook. I do not like reading scifi because they end up being like all the rest but this one kept me wanting more.

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...

Jessica Esa: With a tantalising end to the first chapter, the authour has given us a treat and a welcome addition to the fantasy adventure genre. To limit it to just such would be an injustice however, as this novel clearly draws on elements of historical fiction, fairy tale and horror. Simply, there's someth...

Giuliana Cassetta: My face is full of tears, I never cried like now with a book or even a movie. I loved every single chapter. I truly don't know what to say, I'm out of words and my eyes hurt from crying. Such an bittersweet story, it's so wonderful. One of my favorites for sure. Keep it up!

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters. What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...
