Chapter 021: Scream

667 24 5

Hopper and Brynn rode down to a local pumpkin patch, which had been rotted and destroyed by something. They got shovels out of the back of Hopper's car and started digging. They dug until the sun went down, but never found anything. They were about to give up when Hopper's shovel hit something slimy. He continued breaking through it until there was a hole, big enough for both of them to fit through. They went into the hole and examined it. It was gross, slimy, and had vines all over it. It was a tunnel, and they were undoubtedly going to explore it.

"Alright Kid." Hopper said, handing her a spare flashlight. "Lets do this."


20 minutes later...

Brynn and Hopper had been walking for a while, taking several different routes. Hopper wouldn't allow her to leave his sight, even just for a moment. They turned down a tunnel heading left, when there was a screeching sound. The same awful, mechanical growl that Brynn had heard constantly, both in her mind, and reality. They both spun around frantically, trying to find the source of the noise. They never saw anything, an kept walking. There was another sound, coming from above them. Hopper and Brynn both looked up, only to get sprayed in the face by some sort of fungi creature. Brynn screamed at the top of her lungs, but moved her hands up fast enough that the substance only hit her hands. Hopper and Brynn both fell backwards, Hopper was coughing, and Brynn was just plain freaking out.

She uncovered her face, when he got really dizzy. The flashlights started flickering as more voices erupted into her head. They were louder than ever, like hundreds of people screaming into her ears at once. She put her hands on her head, attempting to keep herself from going insane. She started hyperventilating and shaking, tears had made their way down her cheeks. At this point, there was only one thing she could do.


She screamed at the top of her lungs, stopping the voices in her head. She looked around, the buzzing in her head was almost unbearable. Everything she saw was blurry, black splotches taking over her vision. She saw the blurred figure of Hopper fall, then she gave in to the fight, and the darkness swallowed her whole.
