Creepy Crawlers Part Fifteen

Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Part Four, Part Five, Part Six, Part Seven, Part Eight, Part Nine, Part Ten, Part Eleven, Part Twelve, Part Thirteen, Part Fourteen

If you haven’t figured it out yet it was the man in the trench coat. Whenever I’ve come real close to death he has always shown up to save me, and I don’t know why. I had a feeling I wouldn’t like the reason.

The spiders were still crawling towards me but the man was a lot quicker than they were, which disturbed me a lot, and was able to cut them off. I couldn’t see what he had for a weapon but he started killing the spiders like they were nothing, one after another. I hoped the chief was okay.

It was hard to see but out of the corner of my eye I could see some of the small ones running away and the man wasn’t chasing them. Instead he stuck around to kill the ones that stayed behind. Then there was nothing but the sound of frightened moans and crying.

I felt something tugging at the web around me. Eventually the web gave way and I fell to the ground. The man, who was standing right above me, put his foot on my chest.

“Why do you keep saving me?” I asked him.

“I’ve told you,” he said flatly.

“Why?”

He didn’t say anything but just pushed on my chest with his foot, threatening to break my ribs. It hurt a little bit.

“Listen,” he began. “The time has come. These creatures were ancient, not seen in thousands of years. It is a sign, Wes Parker. You will find out very soon what I have planned for you.” He pushed a little bit harder. “Very soon.”

He then stepped back and disappeared.

Shit. There’s no better word for it. I was screwed. I don’t know how or why but I was definitely screwed.

I walked around and started cutting everyone down from the webs. Eventually I found Roy.

“Took you long enough,” he complained.

I punched him in the face. “Maybe if you stopped getting caught I wouldn’t have to keep saving your ass.”

He got up and tried to punch me back but I blocked him and then pulled him into a hold. He struggled for a second.

“Are you done?” I asked him.

“Yeah,” He replied.

I let go of him and he rubbed his face.

“Did that guy show up again?” Roy asked me.

“Yeah,” I told him.

“What did he want?”

“To let me know that the end was near.”

“What the hell does that mean?”

“I don’t know.” I started cutting more people down. “He didn’t kill all of the spiders, so we need to go looking for them.”

“You want to go through that again?”

“We don’t have a choice.”

He shrugged his shoulders, knowing that I was right.

I looked around for the chief and I did find him, but only part of him. I’ll spare you the details.

Guess who else showed up: Kelly with the rest of her team.

“You’re right on time,” I spat.

“We got here as fast as we could,” she explained.

“How do you move around so quickly?”

“Good travel agent.”

I flashed the most sarcastic smile that I could.

“They all dead?” she asked me.

“No,” I told her. “Some of them got away.”

She nodded her head. “We’ll find them. We’ll clean up your mess too. Get out of here.”

“You’re not going to try and take me in?”

“Is there any point in trying?”

“Well said. See ya.”

Roy and I left as quickly as we could. I found out later that she didn’t find the spiders, which meant that we had a new monster to worry about when we were hunting. It didn’t matter anyway. What came next was the worst the world has ever seen…

Okay, people. This is it. Everything that has happened before has lead up to the next story. It’s going to be a long one. Hope you enjoy. Check back on Monday for part one.

Creepy Crawlers Part Fourteen

I was shocked to put it lightly. Every time I turned around these things kept getting bigger and bigger. I wasn’t really sure how I was supposed to kill that thing and all of the small ones around it, keep the chief safe, and save everyone else. I have been in some pretty crappy situations before but this one takes the cake. Except for when my parents were killed.

“How are we supposed to kill that?” the chief asked me.

“Cut through its head,” I informed him. “I’m more worried about what to do with the rest of them after we kill it. There are quite a bit more than I am used to handling.”

“You’ve dealt with these things before?”

“No. Other monsters, but not these ones.”

“You don’t think we’ll make it out of this alive do you?”

“Probably not. Doesn’t mean we’re not going to try.” I gave him a light slap on the back.

I was thinking about how I wanted to approach the situation and time was running short. The spiders were going to start eating the people any second.

“You don’t have any grenades on you do you?” I asked the chief. I never did learn his name. I won’t bother giving him a fake one either because it isn’t really that important. So, don’t worry about it.

“No, I don’t,” he replied. He looked at me like I was crazy. Maybe I am.

“I didn’t think so. Listen. I’m going to need you to close your eyes for me in a second and I’m going to flash a very bright light. Then I want you to start shooting as many of them as you can. If you don’t close your eyes you are going to get very confused and forget where you are. Do you understand me?”

“No.”

“Okay, perfect.”

I stood up and built up as much courage as I could muster.

“Ready?” I asked.

“Not really,” he admitted.

“Me either.” I took in a deep breath. “Now!”

I let out my beam of light, confusing all of the spiders and charged right for the big one. For the longest time none of the spiders moved a muscle, but, before I could reach the big one, they started running around like a bunch of crazy, blind spiders. The large spider I was intent on killing still didn’t move and I don’t think it could see me coming. When I was ten yards away from it I leapt into the air with my axes held above my head, ready to chop down. Before I could reach the monster one of the small spiders hit me and tackled me to the ground.

My insides turned over and over, threatening to spit out whatever was in my stomach. It was hairy and so disgusting. As we rolled on the ground I kicked the thing off of me and sent it straight into a tree. Without hesitation I fired at the thing so it wouldn’t get back up.

I could hear the chief in the background firing his gun. I looked over and saw for the moment that he was okay, but who knew how long that was going to last? The big spider was wide open again.

I charged at it, chopping spiders that came at me on the way, and this time it saw me coming. It backed up a little bit like it was getting ready to attack me. I took out my guns again and shot at it like my life depended on it, which it did. I hit it but it still stood there, jerking with each shot. When I got close enough I tried to reach up and chop its head off but it jumped to the side. It tried to shoot web at me but I moved out of the way just in time. I think I wasn’t going to appreciate Spider-man after this.

The spider jabbed at me with its leg but I dove to the right. As I came back up I tried to cut its leg off but it pulled it back quickly, so I missed. It tried to stab at me again with another leg but I moved again and this time I was able to cut off its leg. It let out this hideous squeal—I didn’t know spiders could make sounds like that—and started to go crazy. It got stupid. The spider frantically tried to step on me until I cut all of its legs off. I then ended it with not two, but three chops to the head.

I turned around to check on the chief but felt a push and I was then pinned to the web. One of the spiders hit me with some webbing and I couldn’t move, at all. I looked through my peripheral vision and saw a bunch of them coming at me. I was dead. That’s what I thought but then someone showed up. Can you guess who it was…?

Creepy Crawlers Part Thirteen

Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Part Four, Part Five, Part Six, Part Seven, Part Eight, Part Nine, Part Ten, Part Eleven, Part TwelvePart Fourteen, Part Fifteen

I was walking through the woods, taking more time than I should have been, heading toward my impending doom. That might seem a bit dramatic to you, especially since I’m telling you about this now so you know I will make it through alive, but I want you to do something for me: think of your worst fear. Now I want you to imagine that fear being thrown right into your face. How would you feel?

There was a large trail of webs left behind from all of the people being dragged so it wasn’t that hard to figure out where they were. I wasn’t really sure what I was going to run into when I got there. Maybe a giant web with people and animals decorating it like a terrifying Christmas tree. That’s exactly what I did find.

It was horrifying. Everyone was wriggling and moaning, screaming even. It was a hard thing to look at considering how many of them there were. Not to mention all of the spiders crawling around the webs. It was like my worst my nightmare lived next to a nuclear power plant. Oh, also, there were three more of those large ones, which really confused me because I thought the huge one I saw earlier was the mother or queen or whatever you call it. Guess not.

I looked through the crowd of soon-to-be-dead people and there was no way of telling which one was Roy. It was going to be tough to find him.

There was a rustle in the bushes off to the right. I knew that my cover was blown and any second the spiders were going to converge on me. I had to act quickly. I jumped to the bushes in a single bound—no I can’t jump over buildings—which was somewhere around fifteen feet. I didn’t even know I could do that. It’s amazing what you can learn about yourself when fear is driving you.

When my feet touched ground I swung at the bushes with my axe but I twisted my hand at the last second and missed the target. That’s because it was the police chief.

“What are you doing here?” I asked him.

“These are my people,” he explained. “I took an oath to protect them and that is exactly what I intend to do.”

I respected him for that. It was stupid and he was probably going to end up dead but he was brave. He was going to try to save everyone even if it meant his death.

“What do you intend to do?” I asked him.

“I’m going to shoot them with this shotgun,” he said, holding up his weapon.

“Do you really expect to take them out with just a shotgun?”

“Do you really expect to take them out with a couple of axes?”

He made a fair point. The only difference was that I had super strength and speed to go with it. Plus I had two really powerful pistols.

“Touché,” I said.

We looked at each other for a second. It was clear there was nothing I could say to him to convince him to go away so I didn’t bother trying. I could knock him out but that would leave him helpless.

“Okay,” I said. “Just stay out of the way and stay sharp. What about the rest of your group?”

“I couldn’t ask them to help me,” he said.

I nodded my head.

“Are we going to just charge in?” the chief asked me.

“That wouldn’t be smart,” I informed him.

“What then?”

“I really don’t know.”

I stopped talking. Every time I think things have gotten worse it only gets worse from there. I found out the other spiders definitely weren’t the mothers. A spider slowly came out of the woods. It was even bigger than a tank…

I was going to chase after them but there were too many and I needed to get the girl safely inside. We walked through the front door which was busted open. I expected to be attacked by a spider or two but we weren’t. I realized that I didn’t know where the shelter was, and it wasn’t like it was written on the wall or anything.

“I don’t suppose you know where the bomb shelter is?” I asked the little girl.

She nodded her head.

“No,” she said with a mousy voice.

“That’s okay,” I assured her. “We’ll find it.”

“What’s happening?”

“I’m not really sure.”

“Are you going to save us?”

I’m not sure what it was; maybe it was the look on her face or the innocence of her voice, but I was going to save them. I didn’t care what it took or what I had to do, I was going to make sure that I saved them all.

“Yes,” I said.

She shook her head but I could still see some doubt in her eyes.

I walked around the entire first floor of the building until I finally found a way to the basement. There were file cabinets and boxes everywhere. It looked like it was all organized but there were so many.

After taking a minute to scan the room I could see that there was a section of boxes that looked like they had been moved. When I got over to them I could see they used to be blocking a door. I knocked. I could hear some muffled screams.

“It’s me!” I shouted.

“Who?!” a muffled voice asked. It sounded like the chief.

“The kid who tried to warn you about the spiders.”

There was a three second wait and then the door opened up in front of me.

“Kylee!” a woman shouted when she saw me with the girl.

“Mommy!” the girl yelled back. She jumped out of my arms and ran to her mom. The two of them hugged while the mother wept. I felt a sudden longing feeling.

The mother walked up to me and gave me a big hug.

“Thank you,” she cried.

“No problem,” I said, without anything better to say.

I looked around the crowd of people, which was bigger than I expected, but I couldn’t find Roy.

“Where’s Roy?” I asked the chief.

“Who?” I would have figured he would be smart enough to think I would be looking for the guy I had showed up with.

“The other guy that I was with.”

All of the color drained from the chief’s face and it didn’t take much for me to figure out why.

“Did that dumbass get captured?” I was actually annoyed.

The chief nodded his head. “Right before we got in the building one of the spiders grabbed him.”

“How did this guy do any hunting before he was with me.”

“What?”

“Never mind.”

I headed back out of the shelter.

“Where are you going?” someone asked me.

I turned around. “I’m going to save them.”

I left the building and headed for the woods…

There really wasn’t a need to try to convince the police any longer because they could see the truth heading right for us.

“Still don’t believe me?” I asked the chief. He didn’t say anything. He was too dumbfounded to even move.

“I think we need to barricade ourselves somewhere,” Roy pointed out.

“What about all the people?” the chief finally spoke.

“Don’t have time right now,” I said. “Get in.”

We all ran back inside and closed the door.

“Do you guys have some sort of bomb shelter or something?” I asked.

“Not here,” the chief informed me. “There is one at the Town Hall.”

“Crap. We’ll need to get there. We can get as many people as we can.”

“What are we supposed to do?”

“Grab a big gun and fire at as many spiders as you can. I need a megaphone.”

One of the officers ran over to a cabinet and grabbed one. He then ran it back over to me.

“Let me do it,” the chief offered with a shaky voice.

“No,” I stopped him. “This is going to attract their attention and I would rather they come after me.”

“What makes you so special?”

“Trust me.”

We stood at the doors, ready to go out.

“What are you waiting for?” Roy asked me, annoyed.

“I’m scared,” I admitted.

“Stop being such a pansy-ass and get out there.”

Not that I was suddenly excited or motivated by his words of encouragement, but I pushed the door open. I had the megaphone in one hand and one of my guns in the other.

“GET TO THE TOWN HALL!” I shouted through the microphone. “GET TO THE TOWN HALL!”

Sure enough the spiders started coming after me.

“What are you doing?” I asked Roy as I took a couple of shots, crippling one of the spiders. He was standing right next to me.

“I’m going to help you,” he told me.

“Help by getting those people to safety.”

He looked back and forth between the spiders—they were only a hundred yards away at that point—and I. “Good idea.” He ran.

“Who’s the pansy?!”

The first spider reached me and I took a swing at it. It moved so fast that I hit nothing but air. I recovered quickly, however, and chopped right through its head.

One after another they came and I did a combination of shooting and chopping while flashing my beam of light every now and then. I was winning.

“This isn’t so bad,” I said out loud to the monsters I was slaying.

There was a loud thumping noise, louder than the spiders were making.

“What the hell is that?” I asked myself.

I wish I didn’t ask the question and just ran. There was a spider heading towards me whose body was as big as a Hummer…

We finally reached the center of the town and believe it or not it was in perfect shape. It was a little quiet but nothing out of the ordinary. We pulled into the parking lot next to the police station. It was going to be difficult explaining to them what was going on and convincing them that it wasn’t a joke but we didn’t have a choice. I was also very hesitant to willingly walk into a building full of cops.

I jumped out of the car as quickly as I could and pulled out my phone. I found Kelly in my contacts and called her.

“Wes,” she said plainly.

“No time for chit chat,” I explained. I let her know what was going on.

“I’ve never heard of giant spiders.”

“Neither have I. But I had also never heard of dragons either.”

“Can’t handle this one yourself?”

“If I could I wouldn’t call you guys, believe me.”

“We’ve locked onto your position. We’ll be there as soon as we can.”

“Great, hurry.” I ended the call.

At that point Roy and I were standing at the front desk at the police station.

“We need to speak to the chief or sheriff,” I demanded.

The guy sitting behind the desk looked like he didn’t care if the building was on fire.

“If you want to file a complaint then you’ll have to fill out a form.” He shoved a piece of paper towards me.

“We really don’t have time for that,” I explained.

“What’s the problem?” another man asked. I was pretty sure he was the chief.

“We have a big problem heading this way.”

“What’s that?”

I stared at him, not able to say what I needed to. He wasn’t going to believe me. Why would he? It didn’t matter, though, because they needed to be as ready as they could.

“This town is about to be raided,” I started.

“Raided by what, terrorists?” he asked me, suddenly worried.

“No. I wish.”

“Then what?”

I took a deep breath. “Giant spiders.”

The man behind the desk suddenly seemed to be aware we were there. He and the chief exchanged glances and then broke out into an uncontrollable laughter.

“Giant spiders?” he asked. “I suppose next you’ll tell me there are creatures that multiply when you throw water on them?”

“I wish I was joking but you have to believe me,” I told him.

“The only thing that I have to do is get you out of my station.”

“He’s not lying,” Roy tried.

“Are you his dad? You shouldn’t encourage this.”

“I’m not this little snot’s dad.”

“Little snot?” I was offended. “What the hell?”

“You kind of are.”

“I am, aren’t I?”

The chief was staring at us.

“You two can leave now,” he told us.

There was an ear-piercing scream that came from down the street. Everyone poured out of the station so we could see why. I tried to warn them. I tried to tell them that they were coming but it was too late. There was a large group of spiders heading right down the street…

There were so many of them—giant spiders coming to eat Roy and I. I have never been more terrified in my entire life. I thought it was bad when it was just one of them but this was horrible.

“Run?” Roy asked me, stating the obvious.

“Not that it will do any good, but yeah,” I replied.

We took off. Roy was a lot slower than I was and I didn’t feel comfortable just taking off without him, so I ran beside him so he wouldn’t get eaten. Well, he could still get eaten and so could I but at least I wouldn’t be a coward.

I chanced a look back and saw that the majority of the spiders had stopped running and were surrounding the dead one that I had just chopped in half. They were eating it. It was so disgusting. The one comforting thing was that if they were eating the other one then they might be less hungry and wouldn’t come after us. That was a false hope, however, because they still came running after us.

I took out my guns and started firing behind me. I managed to hit them but it didn’t really seem to stop the monsters, save for a couple of them. It did slow them down, which allowed us to stay alive longer.

“We need to get back to the car,” I said.

“I know,” Roy said back. “I don’t remember where we are, though.”

“Just follow me.”

I did remember where we needed to go. I have an amazing sense of direction—not to toot my own horn. We were no more than a couple hundred yards away from the edge of the woods and the spiders were right on our heels.

“Close your eyes!” I yelled to Roy.

“What?” He was confused.

“Just do it.”

He did as I suggested and I flashed my white light, blinding the spiders. It worked. Most of them stopped running while the others ran around in circles.

We reached the car and I didn’t wait to see if they were following us before heading back to town. All of the people that were by the web were gone but their cars weren’t. That made me nervous.

“This is so much worse than I thought,” Roy pointed out.

“There were just so many spiders,” I agreed.

“What are we supposed to do?”

“The last time a town was overrun by monsters I had Kelly blow up that town.”

“This town actually has innocent people.”

“I know, but we may need her help. I can only do so much. We don’t even know if that was all of them.”

“I really hope that was it.”

We made it back to the center of the town and things were even worse than we thought. Lining the woods on the way back was a lot more spider webs, and the closer we got the more frequent it got. I was really afraid of what we were going to see when we got back…
