( chapter eighteen: find maxine and macy )

••

"you're scaring me.." macy spoke softly towards will. he looked at her with certainty, but she could tell her was filled with guilt inside. but she noticed something had taken over will.

"they're coming."

"will, honey, what are you talking about?" joyce asks.

"they're coming! they're coming!" will yells, beginning to spaz on his bed.

mike runs to pull bob from the door that was keeping them inside safely. "it's too late." mike states.

"what?" macy says, adrenaline running through her veins as the lab alarms go on and off blaring. "what the hell are you talking about? mike!"

mike ignored.

"what's going on?" joyce confronts mike.

"we're under attack," mike grabs a syringe needle from a nearby basket, "we need to make will sleep."

"what?!" macy argued.

"he's a spy. if he knows where we are, so does the shadow monster!"

"he's lying!" will cried with a shaky voice, hiding the truth.

mike looks at joyce, "he killed those soldiers, ms. byers."

"holy shit," macy blurted out, "then he'll kill us too. also sorry my language, i should stop."

macy was worried she had a bad impression on joyce, but in joyce's mind, she was far from being a horrible person for will.

will frantically yells "he's lying! he's lying!" repeatedly as bob tried to keep him down from jerking his body, along with joyce. the alarm continued to blare as will yelled in his mom's face.

joyce had no idea what to do.

at this point, macy would try and figure out a way to get out of here. but she knew that there is no way of getting out of this building without someone getting injured. or even worse; dead.

the sound of gunshots were loud enough for macy to hear from far away. she flinched and hid behind mike, mike being able to calm her down after words.

but in situations like this, no one would ever be calm.

"will, listen to me. listen to me!" joyce yells at her son, "do you know who i am?"

will's whole body was perspiring, heated tension filling up the room. macy couldn't breathe, she felt lightheaded, but she didn't say a word.

she ran around the room trying to find a water bottle for her to drink down. she knew she was dehydrated, and she needed energy for this battle inside of the lab.

"do you know who i am?" joyce repeats loud and clear into will's face.

"you're.. you're.." will kept thinking as he looked deeply into his mom's eyes, "you're.. mom."

joyce looks up to bob, "hold him down."

macy chugged a whole new liter of water before breathing heavily, wiping the water that dripped from her chin. "okay i'm better now."

"well will isn't!" mike exclaims.

"oh my god, i am so not arguing with you right now, wheeler." macy rolls her eyes.

"no! no! let go of me! let go!" will began to go crazy, yelling the same words and phrase over and over again.

joyce grabbed a needle from the same box mike got his, and filled it up with anesthesia to make him sleep. "i'm sorry," joyce said, "i'm sorry."
