I say I am fine, but I am drowning.
Cordova was like any other normal High School. The kids complained about being bored and the teachers complained about the misbehaving students. It had been this way for eons and all assumed it would remain this way for years to come. That all changed however one autumn day when it was least expected.
Meridian and Mataiya were prime examples of what best friends were like. They met in second grade in Chase elementary school. By their Senior year of High School nothing had changed, they were still best friends. Stopping in the hallway after their Spanish class, they gossiped about Meridian’s latest crush and Mataiya’s ex boyfriend.
“Don’t forget we’re meeting after class to walk to Drama together, Meri!” Mataiya yelled after Meri as she rushed into class.
“I’ll be here, Taiya, see ya then!” Grinning and stopping in the middle of the classroom, Meri quickly darted back to the doorway, sticking her head out into the hallway to respond.
Mataiya went on into her Chemistry class and slid into her normal chair. While she was in class, Meridian was asking to use the restroom. Since the teacher wasn’t that bright, he excused her and giggling, Meri ran into the bathroom. Although the students noticed she never returned, the teacher just ignored it.
After class, Mataiya walked over to where they were supposed to be meeting and waited until the tardy bell rang for the next class. Frowning, she ran to the Drama classroom and after letting the teacher know, ran for the bathroom. The door opened with a squeaking noise and Mataiya walked in only to stop in horror. In the floor beside the first set of stalls was Meridian. Her body had been ripped to shreds, most of her guts and organs were lying on the ground beside a pool of blood. There was blood all over the walls along with huge scratch marks.
Screaming, Mataiya ran to the office to tell them of her horrific discovery. That very minute, a loud screeching noise blasted across the PA system. Just as abruptly as it started, the noise stopped but the silence didn’t last long. Those that ran outside found it impossible to get beyond the school grounds and it was as if no one could even see or hear them on the outside. The students, teachers, administrators, and security officers were trapped inside the one place they felt was safe. Screaming erupted across the school and three classrooms filled with students and teachers were found gutted the same way Meridian had been. The rest were trapped with something that was killing off them all off. The two main questions that formed in everyone single person’s mind was in regards to what was doing the killings and how they were going to escape.
][OOC: Okay, the point of this RPG is simple. It takes place in our world [on Earth] in the normal time period. You’re either going to be a student, teacher, or other faculty type person, such as a security officer, or even a cook. The phone lines are down and there’s no contact with the outside world, not even e-mail, or cell phones. No one in the outside world can hear or see them, it's as if the school and the accompanying grounds were stuck in some warp zone.
The school is basically like a normal high school in a large city. The school itself is three stories high; basement, main floor, and a second floor. It has the huge commons area in the middle of the school where the students can eat snack foods while socializing during passing periods and allotted breaks. The commons area is filled with round tables that fill up the football field sized room. Ten feet down from the commons area is the lunchroom that also has round tables as well as square tables. The lunchroom is based on an Ala-cart system though the students still have a chance to have regular school lunch. There is everything imaginable on the buffet style tables and the students don’t pay until they have filled their trays. On the left side of the lunch room is the main kitchen where the lunch ladies make the meals.
There is a large auditorium on the west side of the school that was built to resemble an old Gothic looking church-like auditorium. It has painted glass panes that give the church a little light without having the hanging chandeliers lights on. A wood beam juts out beneath each of the window and perched upon the beam is an angelic figurine. The auditorium is on the main floor and the balcony part is up on the second floor. At the very front of the auditorium is the stage area and like all stages, has a trap door, which leads into the basement. The chairs are theater style chairs that rock ever so slightly. They are black and red, alternating to go with the Gothic feel of the church.
The school has a library on the east side of the school that has four doors leading into it. It is not just on the main floor, but it goes up to the second floor as well. The library houses every book imaginable and has computers stationed all around for easy net connections for research projects. The resource books, magazines, newspaper, and old microfiche articles are all upstairs on both sides of the library. There is a restroom upstairs as well, along with more computers.
There’s a huge roundhouse gymnasium on the south side, main floor of the school. The gymnasium has circle seating above the floor and can hold up to a couple thousand people. Hanging above the seating is banners, which state the accomplishments of the school in regards to sports. On each side of the gym high above the seating hang the two scoreboards.
On the north side of the school, main floor are the main administrative offices. Inside the huge administrative office are the offices of the principal, assistant principal, the four secretaries, the two counselor offices, the nurse, as well as the person responsible for paying everyone employed by the school district. Also inside of the administrative office is the security station, which houses the few security officers employed by the district. Beside the security station is the teacher’s workroom where the mailboxes reside and where the copier and other miscellaneous equipment reside. Directly beside the administrative is the smaller gym, used mainly for the second PE classes and practices. The smaller gym has pull out pink plastic bleachers for additional seating during games or other programs.
The entire basement is filled with storage rooms, a furnace room and a maze of corridors off limits to the students. Part of the basement area beneath the auditorium is used frequently and that’s storage for the Drama Theater class and plays. Another part of the basement that is used is beneath the roundhouse gymnasium. It is used for the wrestling room as well as the weightlifting room and exercise room.
The monster/killer part is taken already.
