Scifi / Adventure

Part 1

       The eighth-grade class at Curie Middle School stood shivering outside the Perkins Museum of Science and History.  "Alright listen up! Today, April's dad, Mr. Miaz has invited us to see the exhibit changes in the history section. He says that we have been studying the material in class. I thought it would be a good idea to bring you guys in. You all will be allowed to roam the building freely as long as you respect the rules," the teacher, Mrs. Manteey, calls out to the crowd of talking teenagers. She started belting out groups. Some of the students whined, and the others ran off with their friends. In the back of all the chatter stood a young lady with a sketchbook clutched to her breast. Nothing stood out on her body. Mocha brown hair encased her tan face because she walked with her head down. She is hardly ever noticed even though her white coat differed from the entire army of middle schoolers. April Miaz was her name, the daughter of Calvin Miaz, who was one of the most successful scientists in the entire county. "April Miaz, Ethan Nasre, and Lillian Prowler you all are in a group." 

       A platinum blonde haired girl struts up in the other girl's direction. A beanie covered the top of her hair. The ends were a cerulean blue. Her Nike high tops tapped on the pavement which caught April's attention.  "Hello, Lillian..." She mumbles averting her attention to a spot on the pavement. 

       She clicked her tongue against the back of her teeth. "It's just Lily. C'mon, let's find nerd boy and get this over with." After she had retrieved the brunette, she dragged her over to a boy who sat on the museum stairs with a Rubik Cube. "Yo, Nerd Boy, let's go already!" 

       Ethan rolls his eyes placing his puzzle aside. "What do you want Lillian?"

       She pulls him up by the collar. "Don't test me, Nasre." The blonde signals for them to follow as she walked through the doors. 

       These ridiculous groups were necessary since the last time they let Lillian wander around by herself the art institute called to police on her. She successfully defaced every inch of the most famous painting in the town, The Catalina Rosado. Ethan snatches his cube from the ground. "C'mon April, let's just go off without her..." The boy grumbles reaching out and pulls her along by the wrist.   

       "This is my dad's work. I am not letting Lily ruin it!" The hazel eyed states firmly catching up to the rebellious teen.

        Ethan opened and closed his emerald orbs a few times. It wasn't long before he ran after them as well. The trio walked around the museum searching for something that they didn't recognize. "This is so stupid! Why would your dad suggest we see the exhibits if there is nothing here to see?" He whines throwing himself into the bench. 

        "Maybe there are more things upstairs..." April points to the staircase. Suddenly, a man in a white lab coat rushed by us, papers flying everywhere from his persona. "Dad! Hey, Dad! Wait please come back."

        She took off up the tiled staircase, Mary-janes tapping lightly with every step, and an echo that spread throughout the room. "Alright! Finally some action around here!" Lillian cheers jumping out of her seat and bolting after the other. 

        Ethan lets out a heavy breath but then follows the girls. One staircase after the other the three made it up to the fifth floor. Mr. Miaz took off down the hall with April in hot pursuit. "Dad, wait!" She cries out before the door closed behind him. 

       The children failed to see the signs that stated that this floor was not open to the public. The brunette clenched her fists into balls and ran through the door. Ethan and Lillian stopped to read the sign that hung on the outside of the room. "No entry, tests in a process..." The boy read robotically, "C'mon, let's get April and get out of here..."

       The other nodded before dragging the other into the room. The door swung open and a flash of light engulfed the trio. The last thing that was heard was the frantic call of, "Stop the test! Dear God, please stop!"
