Chapter 9: Takedown
Back of a club, night
Andy and Jamey met at the back of a club located on an old camping ground, both men dressed to blend in with the party guests.
Music boomed from the inside but oddly, it was the only sound coming from inside.
“Zerona is inside.” Andy informed Jamey, “I’ve got guys on standby in and around this location.”
Jamey grinned, “Are you sure you want to do this yourself? I don’t usually see you out on the front lines.”
“Zerona is just a stupid little girl. I can handle this.” Andy said confidently, “Let’s go.”
The two men opened up the back door of the club and cautiously headed into a hallway that led into the main area of the club. Neon lights colored everything cyan and the music was even louder but there wasn’t a single person in sight.
“Are you sure this is the right place?” Jamey asked, looking at the empty hallway. Andy didn’t reply.
They looked around the club until they got to the dance floor at the center of the club. On the far end of the dance floor was a row of seats.
Seated on a single bar chair at the far end of the dance floor was Zerona who was, as always, dressed for the occasion.
The music stopped.
“This is a private event, boys.” Zerona teased.
“A party? Where are your guests?” Andy asked smugly.
Zerona chuckled, “Right in front of me.”
“We aren’t here to party.” Jamey said coldly.
Zerona stood up. A device was in her hand with her thumb firmly on the center of it.
“I knew you were coming. I made so many arrangements for you.” Zerona said. Her face was expressionless.
Zerona pressed the device and a square cage dropped from the ceiling, trapping Andy and Jamey.
Just when they thought things couldn’t possibly get worse, a toxic gas began pouring into the room.
Zerona ducked behind the row of chairs and disappeared through another exit.
Jamey raged, “That stupid little-“
“We can curse Zerona later.” Andy interrupted, calm as ever, “We need to get out of here.”
With some clever teamwork, Andy and Jamey maneuvered over the fence with ease but had trouble locating the exit Zerona had used.
Frustrated and running out of air, they used the door they had entered with.
They hadn’t gone too far from the club when they spotted Zerona standing in the woods, calmly waiting for them.
She waved at them before she turned around and ran through the trees.
Dizzy from the gas, both Andy and Jamey chased after Zerona without stopping to consider that she could be leading them into a trap.
They brushed past trees, pushed through shrubs and jumped over and into puddles created by the previous night’s rain.
The cold night air gradually chipped off the effects of the gas and the two men gained more speed in the chase.
Zerona wasn’t even a little bit worried about being caught up to. She seemed to enjoy the chase and dashed through the woods as if she knew some kind of invisible path.
After a great deal of running, Zerona raced up to the top of a hill that was surrounded by trees and shrubs. A girl was sitting at the top of the hill, her hands tied behind her back and her face hidden under a costume mask.
