In a town called Crib Point, in Victoria, Australia, there is a place called the tanks. "The Tanks" is an abandoned oil refinery owned by BP. It was closed and fenced off when one of the tanks broke open and leaked oil everywhere. If you ask lots of teens from Crib Point they would have been to the tanks, but no one will EVER experience the things that happened today.
Ok, to start it off me and my friends, named Josh, Albert, Blade, and Alex were at the local milk bar getting something to drink. We were trying to figure out what to do when Blade suggested we should go to the tanks. Everyone except Alex agreed, but we convinced him to come. So after that we decided we will go home, get ready, then meet at Bay St. (Bay st. is the street next to the tanks) When I got home, I got a backpack and a bottle of Kool Aid. I also bought a lighter and my dad's Slug Gun. Then I set off to Bay St. I met up with Blade and Alex on the way, and Blade bought a bottle of Coke, and Alex had a bag of chips, and a can of lemonade. W
hen we got there, Denholm and Darien had already arrived,. We found a hole and we went through the fence. When we were through, we went straight into the bushes.
(The tanks are in the middle of a forest like area.) We went up a dirt hill and onto a concerete wall. We looked down, the concrete wall was sloped, but it was still really steep. "How do we get down?" I asked.
Blade said, "Just slide," so we did.
It hurt going down but we were all ok. I looked up and saw a tank, it had the nunber 2 on the side of it. The tank was all graffiitied and rusty, I said "Lets go up." Then I saw the stairs, they were all rusted and brok
en "Ok, maybe not..." I said after seeing the stairs. We kept walking around, there were lots of puddles and rotten trees. We came to an area that was closed off by a large fence. It had signs all over it saying things like "HAZCHEM" and "TANK 1" Blade tried climbing the fence but then fell halfway because it was too high.
We looked around and found a set of footprints leading to a tree. We followed them. The tree didn't look too high to climb, and a thick branch was hanging over the fence. Alex asked, "So, do we climb it?"
"Yeah," I said.
We climbed the tree and got to the branch, I looked over the fence and saw a large pile of broken green steel. I saw a large piece that said "1" (Tank 1 is the tank that broke.) I moved to the end of the branch. There
was an area of grass and leaves that looked soft. "Lets Jump," I said. Everyone else just looked at me, I said look, and I pointed at the pile of leaves and grass. "K," everyone else said.
I walked up to the trunk of the tree and started running. I jumped and landed in the pile, it was very soft. "OK" i said then everyone else jumped. When we were over we walked to the pile.
Alex started to feel uneasy and said, "Oh, I dont feel so good."
Blade said, "Come on you pussy, dont go home now."
Then Alex just looked at him and kept walking. We got to the pile and wondered why there were no trees at all, in fact, there was no vegitation at all. We started to climb on the pile, when we jumped, it was really loud but not so loud anyone would hear. Denholm pointed at an area and said, "Hey, let's take a rest," so we all walked over and had a drink.
Alex started to make strange noises, so we asked him if he was ok, he said, "Yeah, I just feel sick," so we just took it lightly and went back over to the pile. I walked up to the top of it and looked down, it was pretty high up. That's when Alex suddenly jumped at Darien and kinda just- bit at him, I was thinking, haha, great joke. That's when Darien stopped moving, and dropped. Then Alex jumped at Denholm. I pulled out the slug gun and fired at him. I hit him right in the face and the slug ripped a massive hole in his cheek. Alex looked at me, his eyes were completely green, I was in shock. I fired shots at him, and one hit him right between the eyes, he fell, and Blade, Denholm, and I walked up to him.
I asked Denholm, "Are you alright?"
He said, "Yeah, he didnt bite me."
"What the hell just happend," Blade asked.
"Alex jus- Some thing happend to him, and I'm a bit scared."
We walked up to Darien's lifeless body- he wasn't moving. I shot him in the temple just to be safe, I didn't want to shoot him, but I'm just scared.
"Let's get the hell out of here," Denholm said.
"As fast as we can, dude," Blade said.
We went up to the fence and we saw a ladder. We climbed over it and just jumped over to the other side; I landed hard, but I got up and kept going. I decided to reload my slug gun for safety. I saw the hole in the gate, and made a sprint for it. I looked back and saw Blade and Denholm running to catch up to me, they stopped and looked terrified, I turned around and saw Darien?
He looked at me and said, "Come on! let's get out of here!"
However, I just looked at him. That wasn't Albert, I thought.
I asked, "Hey Darien, how did you get there?."
He said, "I was always here."
I looked back, then Darien jumped at me. I hit him in the face then stepped back. I whipped out the slug gun and fired at his face. The left side of his face ripped off and he fell. I looked back, Blade and Josh were still following me, we made a dash for the fence and jumped through it. We ran to my house and acted natural (which was pretty hard after KILLING 2 people!) We went outside and played with a exercise ball we found earlier, then, when we were inside, there was a knock at the door. It was Darien...
