@champagns‚Ä謆 ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† /¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† piper¬† ¬†&¬† ¬†felix.
Tumblr media
felix¬† decides¬† that¬† enough¬† is¬† enough.¬† ¬† ¬†‚Äú¬† ¬† ¬†and¬† how¬† did¬† the¬† killer¬† get¬† in,¬† travis?¬† gabby¬† has¬† been¬† home¬† all¬† day¬† and¬† we‚Äôve¬† all¬† been¬† here¬† for¬† a¬† hot¬† minute.¬† you¬† probably¬† just¬† freaked¬† yourself¬† out.¬† ¬† ¬†‚Ä̬† ¬† ¬†he¬† reasons.¬† if¬† there¬† really¬† was¬† someone¬† down¬† there,¬† there¬† would¬† be¬† no¬† way¬† that¬† they¬† wouldn‚Äôt¬† notice.¬† ¬† ¬†don‚Äôt believe me if you want but i‚Äôm not going back down there. get your own fucking drinks. ¬† ¬† travis¬† says,¬† already¬† accepting¬† defeat¬† since¬† his¬† friends¬† weren‚Äôt¬† taking¬† him¬† seriously. ¬† ¬† leave it to travis to pull an elaborate plan just to get out of doing something. you did more work by doing all this instead of doing what we sent you down there for. ¬† ¬† gabby¬† says¬† as¬† she‚Äôs¬† now¬† heading¬† towards¬† the¬† garage.¬†¬† ¬† i‚Äôm going to get the drinks. thanks for nothing trav. ¬† ¬† she¬† tells¬† him¬† in¬† passing.¬† felix¬† has¬† tuned¬† out¬† of¬† the¬† conversation¬† by¬† this¬† point,¬† lost¬† in¬† his¬† small¬† side¬† conversation¬† with¬† piper.¬† from¬† where¬† he‚Äôs¬† hidden¬† in¬† the¬† pantry,¬† mayer¬† gets¬† a¬† clear¬† view¬† of¬† the¬† two¬† of¬† them¬† and¬† his¬† grip¬† on¬† the¬† knife¬† tightens¬† as¬† felix¬† leans¬† in¬† to¬† place¬† kisses¬† all¬† over¬† piper.¬† what‚Äôs¬† stopping¬† mayer¬† from¬† coming¬† out¬† of¬† hiding¬† and¬† completely¬† slaughtering¬† this¬† friend¬† group?¬† he‚Äôs¬† got¬† enough¬† pent¬† up¬† anger¬† inside¬† to¬† take¬† out¬† eight¬† nobodies.¬† if¬† he¬† could¬† burn¬† down¬† all¬† of¬† silverwood¬† and¬† vanish¬† without¬† a¬† trace,¬† he¬† could¬† definitely¬† do¬† this.
gabby  returns  with  the  drinks  in  hand  and  she  seems  a  little  pissed  off.    well thanks to travis, i’m going to spend the later part of my night cleaning up the shelf he knocked over. how believable were you trying to make it?     it’s  a  rhetorical  question  as  she  looks  over  at  travis  who  was  now  sitting  on  the  floor  by  the  couch  since  there  were  no  more  seats  available.    how about we just start the movie? all of you pull really distasteful pranks all the time. this is nothing new. plus, my popcorn is getting cold. cold popcorn is gross.     becca  puts  her  foot  down  and  naturally,  the  rat  pack  listens  to  her.  she  is  the  mom  friend  after  all.  the  lights  are  cut  off  and  the  subject  is  dropped  entirely  as  the  movie  begins.
Tumblr media
they¬† get¬† well¬† into¬† the¬† movie¬† without¬† a¬† hitch¬† and¬† aside¬† from¬† a¬† few¬† blair¬† witch¬† commentary¬† moments¬† from¬† the¬† rat¬† pack,¬† it¬† stays¬† pretty¬† quiet.¬† the¬† travis¬† -¬† basement¬† incident¬† well¬† into¬† their¬† rare¬† view¬† mirror.¬† and¬† mayer,¬† still¬† in¬† the¬† pantry,¬† could¬† wait¬† there¬† forever¬† if¬† it¬† meant¬† eventually¬† being¬† with¬† piper.¬† although,¬† she¬† doesn‚Äôt¬† get¬† up‚Äď‚Äď‚Äď‚Äst ¬† ¬†not¬† for¬† a¬† snack,¬† not¬† for¬† a¬† bathroom¬† break.¬† gabby¬† has¬† them¬† all¬† trained¬† to¬† remain¬† seated¬† during¬† their¬† movie¬† nights¬† unless¬† absolutely¬† necessary,¬† and¬† this¬† puts¬† him¬† at¬† a¬† disadvantage.¬† he¬† does¬† remain¬† patient¬† and¬† at¬† the¬† right¬† time,¬† mayer¬† decided¬† to¬† make¬† his¬† move.¬† ¬† ¬†¬†piper,¬† ¬† ¬† is¬† whispered¬† through¬† the¬† folds¬† of¬† the¬† door.¬† it¬† is¬† meant¬† to¬† grab¬† only¬† her¬† attention,¬† and¬† that¬† it¬† does.¬† her¬† head¬† turns¬† in¬† the¬† direction¬† of¬† the¬† kitchen,¬† hair¬† on¬† the¬† back¬† of¬† her¬† neck¬† standing¬† up.¬† from¬† what¬† she¬† can¬† see,¬† there‚Äôs¬† no¬† one¬† there.¬† piper¬† looks¬† around¬† the¬† room‚Äď‚Äď‚Äď‚Äst ¬† ¬†everyone¬† else¬† is¬† watching¬† the¬† movie,¬† unbothered.¬† is¬† she¬† imagining¬† it?¬† for¬† a¬† brief¬† second,¬† she¬† squeezes¬† her¬† eyes¬† shut.¬† focusing¬† on¬† the¬† sound¬† of¬† heather,¬† and¬† the¬† rest¬† of¬† the¬† blair¬† witch¬† crew,¬† yell¬† for¬† help.¬† ¬† ¬† it‚Äôs not the same log. it‚Äôs not the same log, mike.¬† ¬† ¬† it‚Äôs¬† not¬† real,¬† piper.¬† ¬† ¬† it's¬† just¬† in¬† her¬† head.¬† and¬† she¬† refuses¬† to¬† let¬† this¬† be¬† another¬† halloween¬† freak¬† out.¬† as¬† soon¬† as¬† her¬† eyes¬† shoot¬† open¬† again,¬† ¬† ¬† piper.¬† ¬† ¬† the¬† voice¬† causes¬† her¬† to¬† jump¬† in¬† felix‚Äôs¬† arms,¬† ¬† ¬† ‚Äú¬† ¬† ¬†fuck!¬† ¬† ¬†‚Ä̬† ¬† ¬† she¬† instinctively¬† exclaims.

@champagns            /            piper   &   felix.
Tumblr media
the¬† second¬† travis‚Äôs¬† screams¬† are¬† heard,¬† everyone¬† immediately¬† turns¬† to¬† face¬† the¬† garage¬† door.¬† now,¬† this¬† could¬† be¬† one¬† of¬† two¬† things:¬† either¬† travis¬† is¬† just¬† fucking¬† with¬† them¬† or¬† there‚Äôs¬† actually¬† something¬† going¬† on.¬† given¬† the¬† male‚Äôs¬† track¬† record¬† with¬† pranks,¬† it‚Äôs¬† most¬† likely¬† the¬† first.¬† ¬† ¬†‚Äú¬† ¬† ¬†anyone¬† else¬† offended¬† that¬† the¬† first¬† person¬† he¬† called¬† out¬† for¬† was¬† becca?¬† ¬† ¬†‚Ä̬† ¬† ¬†felix¬† asks,¬† arms¬† around¬† piper¬† and¬† not¬† really¬† worried¬† about¬† the¬† foolishness¬† currently¬† happening¬† in¬† the¬† basement.¬† ¬† ¬†is there something you‚Äôre not telling us becs?¬† ¬† ¬†asks¬† gabby¬† with¬† a¬† teasing¬† tone¬† as¬† the¬† rest¬† of¬† the¬† group¬† begins¬† to¬† pick¬† on¬† her.¬† ¬† ¬†wha‚Äď‚Äst me and travis? oh hell no. i‚Äôm actually offended you guys would even think that.¬† ¬† ¬†becca¬† defends¬† herself.¬† ¬† ¬†pretty girls have a track record for dating ugly guys. just look at felix and piper. she‚Äôs drop dead gorgeous and heÔŅĹÔŅĹÔŅĹs‚Ķ questionable at best.¬† ¬† ¬†this¬† dig¬† comes¬† from¬† fiona,¬† which¬† causes¬† felix¬† to¬† glare¬† at¬† her.¬† this¬† was¬† the¬† reason¬† why¬† he¬† never¬† bothered¬† to¬† ask¬† her¬† to¬† tag¬† along¬† with¬† him¬† and¬† the¬† rest¬† of¬† his¬† friends.¬† she¬† already¬† annoyed¬† him¬† enough¬† home:¬† he¬† didn‚Äôt¬† need¬† it¬† here¬† too.¬† though,¬† he¬† knows¬† that¬† the¬† second¬† he¬† utters¬† a¬† single¬† complain,¬† piper¬† will¬† be¬† on¬† his¬† ass¬† in¬† fiona‚Äôs¬† defense.¬† best¬† to¬† not¬† piss¬† his¬† girl¬† off. ¬†
meanwhile  in  the  garage,  travis  is  still  freaking  the  fuck  out  over  what  just  happened.  when  his  friends  don’t  rush  to  his  aide,  the  male  begins  to  curse  at  himself.     holy shit trav. you’re fine. just get the drinks and go.     after  the  small  pep  talk,  he  bends  over  to  pick  up  the  drinks  he  dropped.  mayer  finds  it  amusing  how  no  one  came  in  to  even  check  on  the  idiot  in  the  garage.  maybe  this  was  going  to  be  easier  than  he  thought.  as  much  as  he’d  like  to  keep  messing  him,  mayer  decides  to  up  his  ante  by  slipping  past  travis  (  who  was  still  picking  up  the  cans  )  and  hiding  on  the  other  side  of  the  garage.  next  to  him  is  a  shelf  that  has  multiple  miscellaneous  items  on  it.  smirking  to  himself,  mayer  pushes  the  shelf  just  enough  for  it  to  fall  over  with  a  loud  CRASH  as  the  items  hit  the  floor.  this  should  get  their  attention.  travis  jumps  as  the  shelf  falls  over,  once  more  dropping  all  the  cans  in  his  hands  as  he  books  it  for  the  garage  door.     nah, fuck this!     he  says,  slamming  the  garage  door  closed  behind  him  once  he  rejoins  the  rest  of  the  rat  pack.  what the hell did you do down there?  pj  is  the  first  to  ask  as  all  eyes  are  on  the  distraught  male.     t-there’s something freaky goin’ on down there, man. real fuckin’ creepy. shit’s falling over and someone closed the fridge door on me bro, i swear.     are you high?     asks  fiona.     of course he is, we smoked before pullin’ up.     the  first  words  uttered  from  benji  as  he  glances  over  at  fiona  briefly  before  back  to  travis.  for once i’m not fucking with you guys! there’s something down there!

piper¬† doesn‚Äôt¬† take¬† the¬† situation¬† too¬† seriously¬† at¬† the¬† beginning,¬† even¬† letting¬† out¬† a¬† laugh¬† at¬† fiona‚Äôs¬† comment.¬† but¬† now¬† seeing¬† the¬† look¬† on¬† travis‚Äô¬† face,¬† she¬† can¬† see¬† something¬† is¬† wrong.¬† she¬† doesn‚Äôt¬† want¬† to¬† believe¬† it.¬† she¬† wants¬† to¬† brush¬† it¬† off¬† as¬† one¬† of¬† travis‚Äô¬† stupid¬† jokes.¬† and¬† yet,¬† the¬† last¬† time¬† she¬† did¬† that,¬† she¬† was¬† nearly¬† strangled.¬† she¬† would¬† like¬† to¬† sympathize¬† with¬† him,¬† tell¬† him¬† he‚Äôs¬† not¬† crazy‚Äď‚Äď‚Äď‚Äď ¬† ¬†that¬† it‚Äôs¬† similar¬† to¬† what¬† happened¬† to¬† her¬† on¬† halloween.¬† and¬† then¬† she¬† remembers¬† how¬† they¬† treated¬† her¬† that¬† night,¬† as¬† if¬† she¬† was¬† her¬† mother¬† in¬† the¬† middle¬† of¬† another¬† breakdown.¬† there‚Äôs¬† nothing¬† scarier¬† than¬† being¬† compared¬† to¬† her¬† mother,¬† not¬† even¬† some¬† ghost¬† in¬† gabby‚Äôs¬† basement.¬† piper¬† takes¬† a¬† deep¬† breath¬† as¬† she¬† turns¬† her¬† back¬† to¬† travis,¬† lacing¬† her¬† fingers¬† through¬† felix‚Äôs¬† and¬† gently¬† squeezing¬† his¬† hand.¬† she¬† isn‚Äôt¬† getting¬† involved,¬† the¬† rest¬† of¬† the¬† group¬† can¬† figure¬† this¬† one¬† out.
while¬† the¬† rat¬† pack¬† is¬† going¬† back¬† and¬† forth,¬† mayer¬† uses¬† the¬† opportunity¬† to¬† slip¬† deeper¬† into¬† the¬† confines¬† of¬† gabby‚Äôs¬† home.¬† since¬† all¬† the¬† attention¬† is¬† on¬† travis,¬† no¬† one¬† sees¬† him¬† as¬† he¬† enters¬† the¬† kitchen‚Äď‚Äď‚Äď‚Äď ¬† ¬†quickly¬† scanning¬† the¬† room¬† for¬† a¬† weapon¬† and¬† settling¬† for¬† a¬† butcher‚Äôs¬† knife¬† in¬† its¬† set¬† on¬† the¬† counter¬† top.¬† mayer¬† effortlessly¬† spins¬† the¬† knife¬† by¬† the¬† handle,¬† getting¬† comfortable¬† with¬† it¬† in¬† his¬† grasp.¬† he¬† continues¬† to¬† listen¬† to¬† the¬† conversation¬† going¬† on¬† in¬† the¬† living¬† room¬† while¬† finding¬† a¬† hiding¬† spot¬† within¬† the¬† walk-in¬† pantry.¬† ¬† ¬† i‚Äôm¬† really¬† not¬† in¬† the¬† mood¬† for¬† this,¬† man,¬† ¬† ¬† pj¬† rolls¬† his¬† eyes¬† and¬† stands¬† up¬† from¬† his¬† seat.¬† the¬† guy¬† had¬† enough¬† to¬† deal¬† with,¬† what¬† with¬† his¬† relationship¬† with¬† his¬† best¬† friend‚Äôs¬† little¬† sister.¬† ¬† ¬† oh¬† no,¬† did¬† you¬† see¬† a¬† big,¬† scary¬† monster?¬† ¬† ¬† gabby¬† sarcastically¬† asks,¬† taking¬† a¬† step¬† towards¬† pj¬† and¬† putting¬† a¬† hand¬† on¬† his¬† shoulder¬† to¬† push¬† him¬† down¬† to¬† sit¬† on¬† the¬† couch¬† again.¬† ¬† ¬† the¬† blair¬† witch?¬† ¬† ¬† becca¬† adds¬† to¬† the¬† endless¬† teasing.¬† ¬† ¬† it¬† isn‚Äôt¬† funny!¬† ¬† ¬† travis¬† protests¬† as¬† fiona¬† and¬† benji¬† start¬† to¬† chuckle.¬† ¬† ¬† there¬† could¬† be¬† a¬† fucking¬† serial¬† killer¬† in¬† here!

Tumblr media
movie¬† night¬† is¬† going¬† how¬† it¬† usually¬† does,¬† with¬† half¬† of¬† them¬† paying¬† attention¬† and¬† the¬† other¬† half¬† waiting¬† for¬† the¬† rest¬† to¬† get¬† it¬† together.¬† there‚Äôs¬† nothing¬† felix¬† would¬† change¬† about¬† this¬† moment,¬† he‚Äôs¬† always¬† happiest¬† when¬† he‚Äôs¬† with¬† his¬† friends.¬† it¬† reminds¬† him¬† that¬† maybe¬† this¬† life¬† he¬† had¬† was¬† worth¬† living.¬† a¬† dilemma¬† that¬† he¬† finds¬† himself¬† in¬† frequently.¬† as¬† gabby¬† ¬†takes¬† the¬† tape¬† from¬† him,¬† he¬† ¬†walks¬† over¬† to¬† the¬† couch¬† and¬† finds¬† his¬† seat¬† on¬† the¬† other¬† side¬† of¬† piper,¬† throwing¬† his¬† arm¬† over¬† her¬† shoulder¬† and¬† bringing¬† her¬† closer¬† to¬† him.¬† ¬† ¬†she was with me first.¬† ¬† ¬†argues¬† becca,¬† not¬† letting¬† go¬† of¬† piper‚Äôs¬† hand.¬† ¬† ¬†‚Äú¬† ¬† ¬†too¬† bad¬† so¬† sad.¬† ¬† ¬† ‚Ä̬† ¬† ¬† he¬† mocks¬† her¬† by¬† pouting,¬† which¬† causes¬† becca¬† to¬† playfully¬† roll¬† her¬† eyes¬† and¬† let¬† go¬† of¬† piper‚Äôs¬† hand.¬† after¬† gabby¬† finishes¬† her¬† usual¬† movie¬† speech,¬† travis¬† immediately¬† complains¬† about¬† his¬† involuntarily¬† nomination¬† to¬† get¬† drinks.¬† ¬† ¬†‚Äú¬† ¬† ¬†i¬† second¬† it.¬† ¬† ¬†‚Ä̬† ¬† ¬†felix¬† replies,¬† raising¬† his¬† hand¬† in¬† the¬† same¬† way¬† someone¬† would¬† during¬† an¬† auction.¬† ¬† ¬†third¬† it.¬† ¬† ¬†fiona¬† chimes¬† in,¬† which¬† causes¬† felix¬† to¬† glare¬† at¬† her.¬† ¬† ¬†might as well fourth it.¬† ¬† pj¬† speaks¬† up¬† from¬† his¬† spot¬† on¬† the¬† recliner.¬† ¬† ¬†well trav, off you go.¬† ¬† ¬†gabby¬† motions¬† to¬† the¬† door¬† that¬† led¬† to¬† the¬† garage,¬† waiting¬† for¬† him¬† to¬† get¬† up.¬† he¬† does,¬† but¬† not¬† without¬† complaining¬† first.¬† ¬† ¬†you guys just use me for my body.¬† ¬† ¬†standing,¬† he¬† grabs¬† one¬† of¬† the¬† throw¬† pillows¬† and¬† tosses¬† it¬† at¬† piper,¬† causing¬† it¬† to¬† hit¬† her¬† softly.¬† ¬† ¬†that‚Äôs for making me go.¬† ¬† ¬†‚Äú¬† ¬† ¬†don‚Äôt¬† make¬† me¬† kick¬† your¬† ass.¬† ¬† ¬†‚Ä̬† ¬† ¬†felix¬† tells¬† him,¬† but¬† travis¬† is¬† already¬† making¬† his¬† way¬† to¬† the¬† garage.¬† ¬† ¬† i‚Äôll be right back.¬† ¬† ¬†mimicking¬† stu¬† macher,¬† he¬† finally¬† goes¬† into¬† the¬† garage.¬† ¬† ¬†‚Äú¬† ¬† ¬†remind¬† me¬† why¬† we¬† ¬†keep¬† him¬† around?¬† ¬† ¬† ‚Ä̬† ¬† ¬†felix¬† jokes.
outside,  mayer  moves  away  from  the  large  tree  and  closer  to  the  house,  making  sure  there  were  no  wandering  eyes  as  he  did.  he  has  yet  to  think  of  a  plan  in  case  this  goes  downhill.  which  it  won’t,  since  mayer  willis  is  a  seasoned  professional.  it’s  the  first  time  he’s  targeted  a  group,  but  that  only  adds  to  the  excitement,  everything  with  piper  was  different.  it  kept  him  intrigued.  mayer  finds  the  garage  window  is  slightly  cracked,  and  this  causes  him  to  laugh  to  himself.  it’s  really  this  easy.  for  a  group  that  worshipped  horror  movies,  they  sure  didn’t  follow  any  of  the  standard   rules.  rules  that  mayer  uses  to  his  advantage.  like  making  sure  all  the  doors  and  windows  were  locked.  swiftly,  he  slips  into  the  dark  garage  which  makes  it  easier  for  him  to  hear  the  conversations  happening  in  the  living  room.  mayer  walks  around  before  he  hears  the   door  open  and  the  lights  flicker  on  before  immediately  going  dark.  the  bulb  must  have  went  out.  perfect.  mayer  uses  this  to  keep  himself  hidden  in  the  shadows.     gabby your lights are fucking broken.     he  hears  the  voice  of  a  male,  but  it’s  not  felix.  if  it  had  been,  mayer  would  not  have  hesitated  to  kill  him  on  the  spot.  travis  uses  the  flashlight  he  found  at  the  end  of  the  stairs  and  flickers  it  on  to  illuminate  his  path  to  the  fridge  gabby’s  family  had  down  here.     one day they’ll learn to appreciate me.     travis  says  to  himself  as  he  grabs  the  drinks.  mayer  watches  him  with  slight  intrigue,  annoyed  that  it  wasn’t  piper  or  felix  but  using  this  situation  to  give  him  the  upper  hand.  mayer  makes  some  noise  from  his  spot  in  the  shadows,  which  causes  travis  to  turn  abruptly  and  look  around  the  room  with  his  flashlight.  nothing.     shaking  it  off,  he  goes  back  to  the  drinks.  this  time,  mayer  makes  more  noise  and  now  travis  is  freaked  out.     ha. so funny. let’s fuck with travis. you guys are predictable.
Tumblr media
as¬† much¬† as¬† piper¬† hates¬† to¬† be¬† pulled¬† from¬† becca,¬† she¬† doesn‚Äôt¬† mind¬† being¬† closer¬† to¬† felix.¬† not¬† only¬† does¬† she¬† not¬† mind¬† it‚Äď‚Äď‚Äď‚Äď ¬† ¬†she¬† loves¬† it.¬† when¬† becca¬† drops¬† her¬† hand,¬† piper¬† adjusts¬† her¬† seating¬† position¬† so¬† that¬† she‚Äôs¬† leaning¬† into¬† felix‚Äôs¬† side,¬† head¬† resting¬† on¬† his¬† chest.¬† and¬† once¬† felix¬† seconds¬† her¬† suggestion¬† for¬† travis¬† to¬† grab¬† more¬† drinks,¬† she¬† knows¬† she¬† doesn‚Äôt¬† have¬† to¬† worry¬† about¬† taking¬† any¬† more¬† attention¬† from¬† benji¬† and¬† the¬† messy¬† situation¬† he¬† found¬† himself¬† in.¬† therefore,¬† piper¬† is¬† comfortable¬† enough¬† to¬† close¬† her¬† eyes¬† and¬† relax¬† into¬† felix‚Äôs¬† side,¬† comfortably¬† listening¬† to¬† travis¬† whine¬† and¬† complain.¬† typical¬† jackass.¬† it‚Äôs¬† a¬† good¬† thing¬† they¬† love¬† him.¬† it‚Äôs¬† the¬† sort¬† of¬† love¬† that¬† comes¬† from¬† understanding¬† a¬† person.¬† the¬† rat¬† pack¬† have¬† been¬† in¬† each¬† others‚Äô¬† lives¬† for¬† as¬† long¬† as¬† they¬† can¬† remember.¬† they¬† are¬† all¬† well¬† aware¬† of¬† who¬† travis¬† is,¬† and¬† they¬† love¬† him¬† because¬† of¬† it.¬† there‚Äôs¬† not¬† many¬† people¬† piper¬† can¬† easily¬† throw¬† up¬† a¬† middle¬† finger¬† to¬† as¬† they¬† do¬† her¬† a¬† favor‚Äď‚Äď‚Äď‚Äď ¬† ¬†which¬† is¬† exactly¬† what¬† happens¬† when¬† the¬† pillow¬† hits¬† her¬† face,¬† eyes¬† shooting¬† open¬† in¬† anger.¬† ¬† ¬†¬†remind¬† me¬† why¬† we¬† ¬† keep¬† him¬† around?¬† ¬† ¬† she¬† huffs,¬† legs¬† curling¬† up¬† beneath¬† her¬† as¬† she¬† wraps¬† an¬† arm¬† around¬† felix¬† to¬† hug¬† him,¬† ¬† ¬† ‚Äú¬† ¬† ¬†who¬† the¬† hell¬† knows.¬† ¬† ¬†‚Ä̬† ¬† ¬† but,¬† she¬† does.¬† they¬† all¬† do.
in  the  garage,  travis  does  his  best  to  hide  the  fact  that  something  doesn’t  feel  right.  he’s  been  here  millions  of  times  before  and  never  has  it  seemed  so  eerie.  however,  he  doesn’t  exactly  want  to  find  out  what  is  causing  it.  the  faster  he  gets  the  drinks,  the  faster  he  can  get  out  and  back  to  the  living  room.  travis  bends  back  down,  sticking  his  head  in  the  refrigerator  to  get  a  better  look  at  the  drinks.  behind  him,  mayer  quietly  rushes  over  and  decides  there’s  no  time  like  the  present  to  fuck  with  a  couple  of  random  kids.  he  could  still  have  some  harmless  fun,  it’s  not  like  they  had  to  die.  why  should  piper  and  felix  be  the  only  ones  to  enjoy  themselves  tonight?  using  a  good  amount  of  force,  mayer  pushes  the  door  to  the  refrigerator  closed  with  travis  halfway  inside.  the  pressure  causes  him  to  panic,  dropping  every  can  of  soda  already  in  his  arms  as  he  attempts  make  his  escape.  unfortunately  for  him,  mayer  has  some  experience  with  his  victims.  they  always  react  the  same,  no  strategy  just  pure  terror.      HELP!      travis  calls  out,  beginning  to  realize  that  this  may  not  be  the  work  of  his  friends.      BECCA!
