RETURN TO CRYSTAL LAKE
CHAPTER 8- THE ARRIVAL
"Ow, my fuckin leg!" screamed Sean as the SUV pulled up in front of the horseshoe of cabins.
"It's ok, we are here," Scott said. "Now let's have a good time."
"Have a good time? Have a good time?!!!" Sean piped back. "We were almost killed."
"Isn't that why we came here?" Scott asked.
"Yeah, before psycho driver there hit that tree," Krista replied.
"Hey, it's not my fault! It was too dark to see anything even with the lights on," Sean stated.
"You shouldn't have been going 80 then," Kevin argued, "Now we are too hurt to even enjoy this trip."
"We can still enjoy the trip," Scott chimed in. "We just need to get you guys fixed up first."
"Let's go find the first aid station," Emmy stated, climbing out of the SUV.
"Okay, I'll go with you," Ashley replied, also hopping out of the SUV.
So Emmy and Ashley trekked off down the nearest trail, while Scott and Nikki helped the others get out of the SUV and into cabin five, the center cabin.
When they got in the cabin, everything looked pretty good, considering that the place has been shut down for years. The mattresses were dusty, but at least there were enough beds. Two sets of bunk beds in one cabin.
Sean immediately hopped on the bottom bunk, causing dust to fly everywhere.
"Dammit, Sean, did you have to?" Nikki screamed, "My nails will get dirty."
"You are gonna get more than that dirty," Scott replied. "I hope you realize that."
"What do you mean?" Nikki asked. "I thought this place had showers and stuff."
"It does," Scott replied, "We just haven't found them yet."
"Well, I need to take one, I already feel dirty," Nikki complained.
"Oh, geez, what's that been, like 2 minutes since your last shower?" Sean said. "It's not gonna kill you."
"Fuck you," Nikki replied.
"Ohhh yeah baby, you know what I like," Sean said, acting like a smart-ass.
Nikki didn't say anything, just went outside and slammed the door behind her. Scott followed her outside, while Kevin and Krista laid down together on the other bottom bunk.
"Hey, you two, no hanky-panky, I am gonna need some sleep," Sean said.
Krista and Kevin didn't say anything. They just stared into each other's eyes. In fact, they probably didn't even hear Sean's smart remark.
Meanwhile, outside, Nikki was pouting as Scott tried to console her.
"Why does he have to be such an asshole?" Nikki asked.
"I don't know why he acts that way," Scott responded, "That's just Sean being Sean."
"Yeah, well, I am so tired of this shit already," Nikki stated.
"What? Come on, the party's just beginning," Scott replied.
"I'm serious, I hate it here, I wanna go home," Nikki said, starting to cry. She then threw herself into Scott's arms.
Scott at first played it cool and rejected her, but she gradually worked her way into his arms.
"I'm sorry," Scott stated. "Please stay. We will have a blast."
"Promise?" Nikki asked.
"Promise," Scott replied.
I don't know if Nikki knew what Scott meant by "having a blast" or if Scott knew what Nikki meant by "having a blast," but they were two different meanings. Nonetheless, it made Nikki happy, and she continued to snuggle up to Scott.
Until Emmy and Ashley came back.
"What the hell is this?" Ashley screamed, yanking Nikki away.
"It's not what it looks like," Scott explained.
"It never is with you Scott, now is it?" Ashley screamed.
"I'm sorry, Ash, I was just trying to keep her from leaving," Scott replied.
"I don't even know why I bother anymore," she replied, running off down the trail toward cabin seven.
"What's all the commotion?" Kevin asked, peeking out of the cabin door.
"Nothing, Scott and Ashley are fighting again," Emmy replied. "How is Sean?"
"He is sleeping," Kevin replied, limping out onto the small porch of the cabin.
"What are you waiting for?" Kevin told Scott. "Go clear things up."
"Ashley, wait up!" Scott yelled after a momentary pause, taking off down the trail after Ashley.
What they all didn't notice was the big smile on Nikki's face.
Back in cabin five, Sean, Kevin and Krista got all the first aid they need from Emmy and Ashley, who found the medical cabin.
"Well, enough of this, I am gonna go take a shower," Nikki said, taking her belongings and heading off down the trail.
"Yeah, me too, I think I will go stay in cabin two by myself," Emmy replied. "Maybe Ashley will join me when she gets back."
"No, wait, I'll go with you," Krista replied.
"Are you sure you will be ok?" Kevin asked.
"Yeah, I'll be fine," Krista replied. "I just need to rest."
"Okay, I am gonna stay here with the lumberjack," Kevin said, pointing out that Sean was snoring.
"Alrighty, see you in the morning," Krista said, kissing Kevin on the cheek and leaving with Emmy.
With that, Kevin lay down on the bottom bunk and tried to relax his aching body.
As he closed his eyes to finally get some sleep, he should have taken one last look at the window.
Standing there, peering into the cabin, was the masked face of Jason Voorhees.
