Ronnie rememberd a little town his mother had spend her childhood vacations. It was off to Northeney for the four escaped inmates.
The towns folk could see that these four new comers were a bit odd but in Northeney everybody minds there own.
On sunny days the gang head out to the beach and when it rains (which it does a lot in Northeney) they head into town to go bowling or hang out in one of the bars. But Reggie notices Alex isn’t joining them as much. He keeps excusing himself and tinkering away at something in the barn. Ronnie says it’s because Alex is depressed but Reggie has a bad feeling. Something is up.
One night at the bar, Reggie hears the sheriff talking to a group of men about the women that have gone missing this year.
“We’re on six now and I can’t find any trace of them.” he says. One of the men in his group looks up, straight into Reggie’s eyes.
“Have you asked the freaks about it?” Everybody turns around and looks at the inmates. Reggie knows trouble when she sees it and the gang get their stuff and go.
“Ronnie, we have a serious problem. I think Alex did something really bad.”Reggie says as they walk home.
“Yeah, I’m thinking the same thing. I’ll probably have to clean this mess up. Reggie, you talk to Alex. RJ, you start packing. It’s time we move on.”
Later that night Reggie follows Alex and to her horror, she sees the town folk were right in their suspicions.
“O Alex” she whispers and carefully backs away to go and get Ronnie.
Alex has never had these many friends. His very best friend is Jayden June, they talk about the weather all day long.
“Please mister, please let us go. We swear we won’t tell.” the girl with the blond hair cries
“No no no no no! We are all friends. Why would you want to go?”Alex slaps his head, agitated.
Ronnie slowly walks in. The women, like mice sensing a cat, huddle in a corner. Everyone except Jayden. She’s laughing and clapping her hands with excitement. She can sense what is coming and she likes it.
“Jeez Alex, you really do belong in the loony bin.”Ronnie says, slapping Alex on the shoulder. Alex sees the knife in his hand and jumps in front of the women.
“No. You can’t do that. They are my friends.”
“They are witnesses. You want to go to jail Alex? It’s much worse then any asylum you’ve ever been in. You’re too soft for prison boy. Let me take care of this. You go help RJ pack.”
Alex and the women start to cry as Ronnie moves closes.
“Can I help the angel of death in his noble quest?” the raven haired Jayden says and twirls towards Ronnie. Ronnie gives a laugh as he looks into her eyes.
“You, sweetheart, should be in the bin. Your even crazier than Alex is.”
Jayden squeals with joy and skips around the room. Alex is curled up in a ball on the floor.
“Alex? Alex, do you want to keep your little friend?”Ronnie asks and points to Jayden. Alex nods.
“Okay buddy, you take your friend and go help RJ. I’ll be in just now okay.”
As Alex and Jayden leave, Ronnie turns to the group in the corner.
“Ladies, I’m very sorry about this but it has to be done. Just know that I will try really hard, not to enjoy this.”
Lucky for the inmates, the town sheriff is busy trying to keep everyone calm after a mysterious virus breaks out in Sunset Valley. As they drive out of town, a report comes on the radio
“This is Bob Newbie reporting to you live with late-breaking news right here in Sunset Valley. A few moments, ago, Dr. Morgana Wolff, Chief of Staff at Sacred Spleen Memorial Hospital, held a press conference regarding the discovery of a life threatening virus. Over the past 24 hours, twelve cases of this virus were reported at the emergency room. If you experience nausea or fever, report to your local emergency facility immediately. Until further notice, the town of Sunset Valley is considered quarantined and police officials are not letting anyone in or out. Channel 6 will provide any updates as information becomes available. Thank you and good evening.”
“Well guys, looks like we got out of the asylum just in time.”Ronnie says
“Yeah, but what got out with us?”RJ asks and stares into the dark night. Somewhere in the sim world, something bad is happening and it’s getting closer.
