After completing our exam on Thursday, we looked forward to graduating and went for a five-day holiday at the Manny Creeks. A cabin in the woods surrounded by a manmade lake. We arrived at night placed our bags in the cabin which had a small sitting room, three bedrooms and a kitchen. Then bought pizza for dinner.
Mary unpacked when a mouse ran under the bed, she screamed and ran around the cabin. Simon took a bat and searched for it and killed the mouse and threw it away. Simon, Peter and Jake made fun of Mary and the way she screamed.
That night we heard squeaking noises in the ceiling. Mary, Sarah and I stayed in bed frightened. The guys hit the roof with bats to hush them but the noise continued. They went outside where many mice surrounded the dead mouse. Two mice trying to wake it up but it did not move. Simon put the fire extinguisher on to scare the mice away it helped for that night.
Simons scream woke us up mice were feeding on him as he screamed in pain. He tried to remove them but they kept coming. Jake used the fire extinguisher again, the mice left. Simon was bleeding within minutes he stopped breathing. He had gone into shock and died. Mary cried as Jake put a blanket over him. We tried to make a phone call the mice had chewed the phone line the door locked.
Sarah walked into the kitchen to drink her water which she left on the table last night. Jake managed breaking a window and got out. Sarah stayed with Peter as I went with Jake to get help. When we left Sarah vomited and Peter gave her more water to drink than she passed out. He went to the kitchen to get water when he saw a mouse peeing inside it. Peter dropped the cup and ran to Sarah who had stopped breathing.
Peter was in shock when the roof of the cabin opened and thousands of mice fell on him. He shouted and tried to remove the mice from his body but they kept biting him. He ran through the window toward the lake to remove them but he tripped on a piece rock and went stumbling downhill. His body lifeless when he reached the bottom of the hill
The crashing sound of the roof, squeaking mice and Peter shouting made Mary close her door and sit on the bed with the fire extinguisher. Her heart was beating fast, felt frightened. Got off her bed, left the extinguisher. Sarah laid on the bed motionless, Peter was nowhere and did not want to walk into Simon's room. Walked to the kitchen, stepped onto the trap door and fell inside where there were thousand of mice.
Mary's loud scream made us ran to the cabin, Jake got the fire extinguisher and sprayed the mice but it was too late Mary died. Mice were still feeding on Peter at the bottom of the hill, Jake put the fire extinguisher on to chase the mice away.
The cabin filled with mice so we sat outside waiting for help. Jake wanted to go the bathroom, I warned him not to go in the cabin but he said he will be fine. He took the fire extinguisher and walked to the bathroom. As he walked to the bathroom, the mice followed him. He put the fire extinguisher on but nothing came out the mice surrounded him. Jake shouting for help and I ran towards the bathroom where the mice were bitting him. I tried removing them but they kept bitting me then I ran outside in tears I could not save Jake. The ambulance arrived, they went inside, Jake was no more. The put me in the ambulance as I watched them set the cabin on fire.
