    Skunk

    ...figures... Once the worst case scenario is realized, Skunk finally gives in to failure. He slams the breaker box closed adding a lound metal-on-metal ring to the other noises bouncing around the room. "Dammit! Unless someone can find candles and matches or something, we better all get used to the dark, cuz it ain't the fuses, the power lines are down or we got blown transformers around here."

    It suddenly occurs to Cuthbert that he should've known. All those, what were they, oh, street lamps that were falling like dominos behind him might explain the situation, just a little bit.

    The flash of lightning and the almost immediate shock of thunder indicating this old building was probably right under the heart of the storm just about now compounds the sense of helplessness one gets from being in the dark. And then more gunshots.

    Cuthbert screams in a voice not unlike that of a wounded hyena, "What the hell is going on in there!?"

    Flashing around and simultaneously feeling for the cabinet doors, he starts popping them open one by one in an effort to find a measly candle. Just one, just friggin ONE! The sense of helplessness and frustration brings flashes of his home, burnt to cinders before his feet. The panorama of darkness acting like a movie screen to bring out all the suppressed details. The charred remains of his father that he fought so hard to forget. His blackened, shriveled hand seemingly reaching out for him. The melted frame that then only surrounded the ashes of his mother's favorite photo, of baby Cuthbert being held by his father, and his mother in her best Sunday dress standing over them both, everyone beaming smiles; a remnant of better days. The memories are coming too close. Cuthbert begins to slip, just a little.

    Cabinet doors begin to slam back and forth as the voice of a man some in the room haven't even seen yet begins to scream and rail against the darkness.

    "God dammit to hell! What the spoon is going in this spooning place? Spooning fuses, spooning candles, spooning gaddamn whackos everywhere! Lamp posts chasing me! What the spoon is up with THAT?!"

    It was almost by instinct, it must have been by instinct because up til now Cuthbert had forgotten he was packing. He reaches into his coat, to a spot just below his left armpit and grabs the butt of his pistol so tightly he was able to yank it out of the holster despite the unwilling leather closure's formidable attempt to keep the two metal snaps shut.

    Though it was likely no one could actually see him do it, Cuthbert backs off along the line of cabinets affixed to the outer wall and slides blindly into a corner near the stove.

    His sharp, unnerving voice again slices through the void. "If no one's gonna try to get some spooning light in here, I'm gonna set the whole goddamn place on fire! And until we get some spooning light, stay the spoon away from me, all of you!"

    Only Cuthbert's suddenly frayed mind knows just how easily he could make good on his threats. Or for that matter how easily he could be moved to pull the trigger over which hovers his dangerously twitching finger.

    Jeff darts out of the kitchen, reading off something in a strange, archaic sounding language, while running towards Ed's now slowly moving body. As he finishes the words and gestures, Jack feels an intrusion into his mind, similar to the voices before, but this is obviously weaker, and he shakes it off, blinking several times.

    The old hag of a woman suddenly straightens up and she looks just like she did before any of this mess happened. She blinks confusedly, staring into Jack's face for some recognition. Tears well up in her eyes and she grabs at the spot on her dress where he had shot her. Blood wells up and stains down the front of the dress as if she hadn't been shot until just now. The flashes of lightning are like snapshots of a murder. The woman slowly staggers towards Jack calling out to him in a kind old voice, "Help me, son... please, I'm ok now, but I've been shot... please help me....help me... I know you can help....." The entire seen is enough to make Jack question his motives and rethink his plan.

    Jeff manages to get an arm under and around Ed as he begins to speak. Tossing Ed over his shoulder, Jeff darts back to the kitchen, adrenaline pumping through him once more, keeping him strong and aware. He grabs the dropped flashlight on the way back, not wishing to be in complete darkness for much longer. The light offered sanctuary, no matter how little.

    With the removal of Ed, this leaves Tom the only other person near Jack, besides the old woman, whom now looks to have returned to normal. He's probably wondering about his luck right about now...

    In the kitchen, Skunk snaps into a seemingly violent rage of incoherence. He opens and slams shut cabinets looking for something. His eyes seem to attack the darkness, daring it to make his life any more difficult that it already is.

    However, life has a funny way of responding to violence and insanity. It tends to respond with pure and simple logic and utter resolve. No matter how many times Skunk looks, he can't seem to find what he is looking for. And it drives him all the more crazy with anger.

    Melissa and Suzie both scream as Skunk yells at the top of his lungs, and pulls his piece out. They have no idea where to go, because Jack is firing shots, and Skunk may just fire. They decide that the back door is the best option, running towards it. Suzie is pulled by her frantic mother, but she stares at Skunk, enraptured by his presence and outbreak. Time slows as she runs off, her face illuminated in pure white light from the storm. She stops as they throw the door open and stand out in the rain. The rain drops splash down onto Suzie's face, running down her cheek like tears. Still, she stares into Skunk's eyes, trying to find some rhyme or reason as to his pain and desperation. Eventually, the door slams shut in between them, cutting off their line of sight for who knows how long...

    Moving into the room where Skunk is shouting at the darkness, Jeff doesn't realize that the guy is waving a gun around until the lightning flashes.

    Seeing that, he freezes. He also notices that Melissa and Suzie aren't in the room anymore. He'll talk, half to himself, half to Ed, arm draped over his shoulder (rather than a fireman carry), "Sorry about that, buddy. Out of the frying pan and into the fire."

    Tom

    Smiling to himself as he realises Ed is okay, he carries on walking towards him when Jeff snatches him up and runs off with him. "Well blow me.." he mutters, "things 'ere just keep gettin' stranger an stranger..."

    He was thinking of following them out when he heard the old woman speak again. Yet, this time it was different. Her voice was free of whatever menace had driven Jack to shoot her and was once again filled with the innocence of old age. "No.. Not someone else.." he says as he backs off into the back room, looking for Jeff.

    "Jeff!" he shouts as he makes his way in there, "its happened again'.. the old woman needs ya help now..". This said he realises that the last thing he had told Jeff was that the woman was biting the gun, and he probably wouldn't be in the best mood to help her.

    "She allright now.. there was somethin' wrong, but she seems better now.. Please, ya gotta do somethin'!" With this said he tries to take Ed off of Jeff, oblivious to the fact that Cuthbert was in the room.

    Jeff stays frozen, not sure what set off the stranger's burst of crazy, but not wanting to see if he was kidding about the gun.

    As Tom comes in behind him, Jeff will whisper out of the corner of his mouth, Ed draped over his shoulder "Dude... We got problems."

    Not sure if Cuthbert will freak out at anything, Jeff will lower Ed gently to the ground, and look over at Tom. "Dude, that lady and her little girl ran outside- can you try and find them or something while I try to help the old lady? I'm no medic, but I can try something."

    We got problems... that don't sound too good. *I dunno what problems he thinks we got.. but whatever it is, that woman probably be better inside..

    Nodding his acknowledgement to Jeff, and thinking that Ed would be fine left where he is, Tom walks outside of the building and begins his search for the woman.

    "Ma'am.. *I know some damn strange stuff been hapnin' in that buildin' there.. *But its all better now.. *Things gonna be all right... *Ya just need ta come in with me.. an we be all right..." *He is not really sure which of them he was trying to convince, but none the less he carries on looking for the woman, though he seemed distracted in his search as he begins to realise he had left the relative safety of the building.

    Skunk

    Cuthbert sweats profusely in the envelope of his leather jacket, made all the more constricting by his position, stuffed in a corner, in the dark.

    A flash of light illuminates a suddenly open doorway, within it a million heavy raindrops frozen in their tracks. And a child's face, her eyes staring innocently into his. She is unfairly calm as she stands in the suspended rain, in the light for an endless moment; he is jittery and confused, his nerves about to collapse in on themselves. But as that immeasurable moment drags on, he feels a calm washing over him, as if the little girl's gaze were cleansing his tattered soul. She stared forever, and he stared back, a jagged bolt of lighting somewhere out there in the night, hanging suspended in the sky. And hovering over it all, an utter, absolute silence.

    Then it ended, the door slamming shut, the darkness slamming in right behind it. Voices in the room, incoherent to his ears. But this time, there was no frustration tearing at his mind, not yet. The calm he'd inherited belayed that. He relaxed his rigid muscles slightly and shrunk farther into the corner, his twitching finger now stilled and removed from the trigger. His inner demons appeared sated for now.

    But on his lips, if anyone could read them in their own eternal instant of light, were the pleading words "don't go out there...don't go out there."

    In the poor lighting that flashes only every few moments, Jack can't find anything with which to bind the woman up with. Her eyes plead with him for help, her voice being lost to gurgling blood the dribbles out down her chin and across the flowery blouse. She reaches out for him desperately...

    Tom exits the kitchen to be met with a torrential downpour of rain. To his eyes, the darkness is all coming, save for the bolts of lightning that strike down at the earth, as if punishment. He cannot locate the woman and child and he thinks that his words have fallen upon deaf ears, as the rain fills the air with its sound. It has become almost a sound of gray, mixed only with the sound of the thunder. There is a sudden feeling of thousands of eyes staring at him. He can sense teeth dripping with hunger, just waiting to rip him limb from limb.

    The calm that overtakes Skunk is exaclty what he needed. However, he is startled once more as Tom launches himself outside the building. His hand jumps, but he maintains his grip. He sees a slightly more relaxed Jeff in front of him, thought the gun is keeping Jeff on edge.

    Ed's body seems to get heavier and heavier the longer Jeff holds him on his shoulder. This angle is almost making the blood rush to Ed's head, causing him a dreadfully painful headache. The pounding is enough to keep out the cracking thunder outside, even.

    Skunk

    By now Cuthbert has sunk to the floor, wedged into the corner between a cold wall and a dimly warm stove, the unseen pilot light still flickering within. He flinches as a man appears briefly in the light of the latest flash, flinging open the door and running out into the night. ...crazy...all crazy.... His lip is curling, but he isn't aware. In the pitch blackness, his wrists resting upon his knees, he rocks the gun in his tired hands. Barrel up, barrel down, staring at the memory of its form within his mind's eye.

    In tandem with the next burst of light, without lifting his head, his eyes flick upwards to the man he saw at first, in that same doorway. When the darkness returns, in a voice worlds away from the shrieking released earlier, he utters what to him is a purely rhetorical question. "He shouldn't be out there. You know that, right?"

    Barrel up, barrel down....

    Tom

    Tom's search began firstly without any discovery, when his mind began to race ahead of his body. * He pictured snarling mouths waiting in every doorway, clawed monstrositys standing shoulder to shoulder with winged beasts. *The feeling of countless hungry eyes boring into his very soul filled him with dread and honed his nerves to a point where he just couldn't stand it any more. *One large hand went into his jacket pocket, and it came out holding his gun.

    "Ma'am!", his voice little more than a whimper, "it aint safe out 'ere ma'am.. *Ya shouldn't be out here.."

    Who shouldn't be out here Tom?.. You, or her.. *Leave them, get back inside, bolt the doors! *It doesn't matter about them, only two lives Tom, only two lives...

    Raising his voice in an attempt to drown out the thought of leaving the woman and child here, Tom's next sentence is almost yelled at the top of his voice. *"We need to get ya inside, both of ya! *If you aint goin ta come in, least let me know ya still alive.." *Gulping down his fears, and in the midst of it all forgetting that his phone has a torch option, Tom cautiousely descends into the darkness and furthers his search for the pair.

    Jeff glances back to Ed on the floor against the wall behind him, not sure how to proceed. He had heard the second two gunshots, and if that whacko in the other room was still only two feet away from that old woman, she was as dead as he was crazy.

    The punker, soaked to the bone and shouting at the darkness, that might be someone he could help.

    Debating with himself for a moment, Jeff bites his lip with indecision.

    Ed

    His head throbbing from the blood rushing to it started to send a continually pulsing wave of pain through his head, hitting him hard then moving away only for the pain to come back once again. Ugh..at least it help's distract from pain in my chest. Still can't believe that he did that to me even if it was an accident...

    Suddenly with a thump he felt the pain in his head start to recede and stay away for longer, all this accomplished was to bring back feeling into his chest. Opening his eyes he saw that he was in a different room, a kitchen of some sort perhaps. With a flash of lightning the whole scene was revealed to him, Jeff standing by the door to the other room, the door outside open showing rain bucketing down. None of this registered compared to the strange man waving a gun around wildly, seemingly not even in control of himself. [size=1.5]"Oh god not another one, this night is bad enough already."[/size]

    [OOC: Is Ed referring to Skunk as the crazy one waving the gun around? Because the door to the outside is shut; you can't see Tom with his gun out.]

    There is building tension in the air between Jeff and Skunk, as neither one have confronted the other. The lightning flashes, revealing the cold swear upon each other's brows and perhaps an understanding can be decided upon, even in the silence.

    Tom has no such luck, however, as the rain pours down on him in buckets, soaking him entirely. His clothes are all wet and clinging to him, and his gun is becoming rather slippery in his hands. However, he is concerned only for the wellfare of the woman and her child. The pounding rain drowns out his voice to the point where he would have to be nearly next to someone to hear them. He wanders aimlessly through the parking lot and gazes at the streets. Lights are missing from the scene for quite a ways down. He guesses maybe six blocks down or more, there is more lighting.

    The old woman stumbles towards Jack eventually putting her arms on his to help her balance. She coughs blood once more, splashing it up onto Jack's shirt and down onto his shoes. The wound looks to be deepening and festering as he stands so close to her. the flashing light reveals her suffering and he feels the pull of the room once more. The walls begin to teeter inwards from all angles and the woman so close to him makes it seem as though he is being strangled. His breath comes in shorter stints now...

    Jeff will chew his lip, seemingly coming to a decision- he slowly backs toward the door to the front room, the one with Jack and the old lady.

    While he's slowly doing so, his voice is low and pleading with Skunk. "Calm down, man. I don't like this any more than you do, but we don't need anyone else shooting people. Ed here is already hurt, and I'm going to go in the other room and grab my flashlight. Don't panic, everything is going to be okay."

    At this point, Jeff has his back to the door, and then he pushes through to the room beyond. He says a silent prayer that Tom is doing better than he is, and he pushes back into the front room.

    Once he's in the front room, his thoughts will change, as he sees Jack holding the injured old lady, with her leaning on him.

    All thoughts of grabbing the flashlight and running for it are eclipsed from his mind as he sees the injured old woman. She's probably gone, and somewhere deep in his mind he hears Tom telling him she was hurt, but he moves to the old woman, pulling her away from Jack and laying her out on the ground.

    Skunk regards Jeff's shadowy form, as he rises to leave the room. His words coincide with a general calming and together they seem to bring his more conscious mind to the surface.

    "Dude, don't worry about it, this hardly ever happens anymore. I'm good. Can't say the same for the other guy out there. He's up spoon creek, for sure. And the lady and her kid? No chance."

    He lets things sit as they are after that, still holding his gun lightly in his hands, more as a tangible anchor to focus on than with any remaining threat to use it.

    In the flashes of lightning, Jack's eyes behold the women's face look as though it is withering with the sands of time. In each flash, she looks another five years older; her lips draw up, the skin grows taught and her eyes sink into her skull, revealing deep pits of black, with tiny red gleams in the middle. Her grubby hands run up along Jack's to reach his throat, as she tries to strangle him and pull herself closer. Her gritty voice gurgles out, "Give us a kiss..."

    Tom stumbles through the rain as it pelts him with a fury unseen in many years. Its as if the sky is trying to drown out everything bad with the world. The chill of the October air finds its way under his skin and he begins to shiver at the loss of precious warmth. The lights are still quite a ways down the street, but it appears as if the area he is around has lost power, leaving everything else in tact.

    Ed's headache slowly slips away into the night as he rests upright against the wall. The pain in his chest is still prevalent, as it takes all he has to stay awake. The air is hot and stuffy as there is more and more movement inside the small building. When Jeff leaves, the doors shutting bring with them a cold breeze from the broken window in the main room.

    As Jeff walks into the main room, he approaches the old woman and Jack. After a moment, however, he sees the woman change and begin srangling the life from Jack. And he thinks she said something about a kiss. He's not quite sure, but Jack looks like he might be in trouble again...

    Tom, do you head east or west? Lights are in both directions, but about six blocks away each way.]

    Outside the frequent crashes of thunder, the kitchen is almost quiet and it spurs Skunk into motion again, like a bat sensing the onset of dusk.

    Rising to his feet, he holsters his pistol carefully, but leaves the snap enclosure open. Just in case.

    In a voice intended for an empty room, Skunk considers what to do. "Hmm...well, might as well try this again."

    Moving to the nearest bank of cabinets, he flips his mini-flashlight back into his hand and shines it ahead in an effort to reorient himself. He chooses a lower cabinet to start with as he remembers his mother always telling him to put the judiciously used holiday candles back in a box under the sink. Could be there's something universal about that.

    He shines the narrow beam into the now open cupboard. For a brief moment the image of a slavering beast staring back at him from within that deeper darkness invades his brain, but it fades quickly. A good sign for Skunk. After his occasional anxiety attacks he tends to have hallucinations that play out, sometimes for minutes. His friend, Jojo, who fancies himself some sort of eastern mystic *** pop-pyschologist had been treating him, after a fashion, for a year or so. Once a week he'd visit his one room apartment on the east side where he'd sit on a clear plastic blow-up chair and drink cheap chardonnay while allowing him to massage his brain. He'd claimed those "trailing visions" as he called them, would diminish as long as Skunk kept up the weekly therapy. Since Jojo wasn't charging, it seemed his diagnoses were sincere, if possibly entirely off the mark. Either that or he was more crazy than Skunk. In any event, those "trailing visions" did seem to be lingering less and less ever since last March. At least one thing was improving.

    In an open whisper Skunk begins a chant specially designed to lure candles from dark cupboards. "Come here little candle, come to old Skunkman, you know you want to, you want to, want to. You love the way I burn you, and then snuff you out. You want to, you want to, want to. My little candle baby...." Hardly a question remains as to why Skunk never convinced anyone to let him handle the lyrics. Not fathoming the lameness of the words, he continues the ancient coaxing ritual.

    Jack

    *Jack's eyes go cold as he brings the gun up to the withered old woman's mouth, placing the barrel directly in her mouth, ***** an eyebrow, and in a deadpan voice says:*

    Kiss this.

    *And pulls the trigger*

    Skunk searches through the cupboards one by one, in a much more calm state. This allows a much more thorough attempt at finding anything, were there anything to be found. However, the cupboards are bare at the moment, looking to be unused in quite some time, as there is a fine layer of dust along the tops of the shelves.

    As Jeff creeps through the darkness, he can hear the throaty sounds of death coming from the struggle between the lady and Jack. He attempt to pull the woman off, but she seems to possess a strength that her meager body should not be capable of. In this same instant, a bolt of lightning illuminates the woman's face and makes Jack's a silhouette, holding up a gun. The gun slides effortlessly into the woman's mouth as the trigger is pulled back. The hammer slams down, exploding a slug from the barrel through the back of the woman's neck.

    As blood sprays forth in copious amounts all over Jack, the bullet continues to travel and lodges itself into Jeff's chest, just under the collar bone. There is an instant of fear, panic and heroics all bundled into one as Jeff realizes he is hit. In Jack's point of view, he didn't see Jeff standing behind the woman until he had already pulled the trigger. Jeff stumbles back away from the woman, clawing at the searing heat and pain from the wound.

    Jeff falls backward at the gunshot, clawing at the wound and writhing in pain."OH SPOON ME!"

    Landing hard on his back, Jeff will shake for a little bit... and then descend into darkness. His last thoughts are of his wife, and his words are a whispered.. "No, I need to get to her... I need to save her..."

    Skunk

    Were it not for the thunder and the incessant rain pounding away at every external surface, Skunk could be heard ticking off one cupboard after another, each being relegated to the "Nope, nothing here" category.

    As the last shelf mocks his final attempts to find something as annoyingly mundane as a candle, he feels his anger and frustration begin to rise again. *But this time, it is instantly derailed by yet another gunshot, one followed by a somewhat familiar voice cursing in pain.

    His frustration is now, oddly, replaced by a sense of simple curiosity. In words more mouthed than spoken, he resolves at least one thing. *"A'right, that's enough of this spoon."

    Following the pitiful beam of his mini-flashlight and once again drawing his pistol, Skunk moves along the wall to the opening that leads into what he gauges is the main room. *He knows this is probably not such a good idea, but the whole evening's stress has overcome some of his natural sense of caution. *One doesn't trot into a darkened room where gunshots have been fired, especially not while shining a flashlight to give away one's location. *One doesn't do that. *At least not when one's entire wits are about them.

    Upon reaching the doorway, Skunk leans around the jamb just a bit, just enough to shine his tiny light into the relatively cavernous room. *Into the pitch blackness he offers a defensively placating question: "Everyone alright in there?"

    With Jeff's body no longer supporting the woman, she falls to the ground growling and screeching in pain. She too claws at her own wounds, but succeeds only in tearing the flesh that used to be her cheeks. There is an unholy aura about her and it becomes painfully obvious to everyone that she is no longer what she appeared to be. The skin melts off of her hands and arms, collecting in an oozing pile on the floor, as her bones begin to fall apart.

    Sickly pale blood gurgles up into her mouth, depositing equal amounts out the back of her neck, as out her tatterted cheeks. Her entire body begins to twitch violently, scattering finger bones around on the floor, and eventually dislodging the bones lefts in her arm up to the elbow. Through the gurgling blood, those need her can whisper the words, "We're coming for you." After she speaks, she loses any movement and lies still.

    Jeff's legs twitch... he's either dead or having a horrible dream.

    *For a moment, Jack is satisfied when he sees the woman bleeding green. He was right! but then he sees Jeff.. on the ground.. dying.. NO! Jack rushes over to him, tearing off a piece of his shirt and attempting to bind the wound...*

    Leaning against the wall Ed is slowly slipping back into the comforting darkness of unconciousness against the pain and confusion of what had been happening in the last few minutes when his dazed reverie was interrupted by a sound he'd grown to know all to well in those few minutes - a gunshot ringing through the building.

    Grimacing against the pain rising in his chest Ed slapped off the welcoming embrace of unconciousness tugging in his mind and rose unsteadily to his feet, bracing himself against the wall as he did so. Clasping his left hand over his chest wound as he did Ed started moving towards the door, noticing as he made his slow way over an arm holding a small flashlight shining into the room. Making his way over he stumbled near the door and reached out with his free hand, grabbing Skunk's shoulder to steady himself and wheezes out to him [size=1.5]"What's happened in there, I heard a shot come from the room."[/size]
