B028: KEITH BAUER START

Keith had taken some time to wake up in the nearby underground corridor. He spent what felt like an eternity drifting in a distant, and surprisingly relaxing, haze. Even after he had stood up and grabbed his bags, no sense of panic had yet set in. His brain felt foggy, like he was forgetting something, and his wet clothes from lying in the flooded hallway had yet to provoke a feeling that something was wrong, or that he should be upset.

He slowly wandered down the hallway, vaguely listening to the splashy echoes his footsteps made as he walked.

He kept going until he saw a door, and feeling slightly curious, he opened it to see a couple of his classmates from school and a large metal chair.

"Oh...hi," he mumbled out in slight surprise.

The boy, Joshua, greeted him as he stepped inside. Of course that was his name, how could he have forgotten it? Keith felt satisfaction for a moment for having remembered what he had forgotten. But no, that wasn't it. He felt like he was forgetting something else, the girl's name maybe? That could be it.

He was about to ask as a reminder when his mind told him that wasn't it. Something bad was happening, he could feel it. After all that's why his classmates must look so sad.

He tapped his foot idly and bit his lip in thought. He didn't like not remembering things or this fuzzy-headed feeling.

His eyes went wide.

"Oh. Oh shit."

Keith's body started to shake as his hands squeezed each other like hungry snakes. His calm relaxed state was now replaced with overwhelming fear and a feeling of bodily lightness.

"Shit, shit, shit."

He could feel wetness on his cheeks, and they flushed with the shame of it. He couldn't cry, he never cried, and letting other people see that was almost as bad as this situation.

His voice had raised at least an octave from where it was before. "We're gonna fucking die, th-that's what's wrong."

Keith wanted to believe what Joshua said, that they wouldn't die, that things would turn out fine. It was a reassuring idea, but he didn't know how they could do it. He knew that people had escaped at some point, but he didn't remember how they had managed it, or how long it had taken for them to figure out how.

The girl dispelled the little bit of reassurance that Joshua had given Keith. She sounded kinda angry, and it made Keith a little angry too.

"Hey we could manage it, you don't know."

Joshua had introduced the idea that they wouldn't die, and Keith really wanted to believe that. He needed to.

Keith flinched at the response.

"Manage to escape," he muttered after she had left. Of course it could work, why couldn't it work. It had worked before hadn't it?

"Bitch."

He was surprised to say it, he rarely called anyone bitches, but well, come on. This time it was a fair thing to say.

In faux-casualness he responded, "Yeah yeah, man, I know, just, what's her deal?"

He had to keep going. They'd figure it out.
