Hello once again dear readers! And if you are new to my stories, Welcome! This story will be completely different from all my other stories! An entire new AU, OOC, with the characters from the Scooby Doo gang put into this thriller/horror book that I'm reading. I loved this book from the first chapter and I wouldn't have started reading it if it hadn't been for my friends in School. See, we had this project given to us by our Swedish Teacher where we were supposed to form a group, a book circle, and select a book from a smaller collection of books. I was sick this day but we had already chosen the groups a week earlier and so my group choose this book, The Enemy, the first book in a series of six by Charlie Higson, three of those has yet to be written.
The original book's summary is this:
"In the wake of a devastating disease, everyone sixteen and older is either dead or a decomposing, brainless creature with a ravenous appetite for flesh. Teens have barricaded themselves in buildings throughout London and venture outside only when they need to scavenge for food. The group of kids living a Waitrose supermarket is beginning to run out of options. When a mysterious traveler arrives and offers them safe haven at Buckingham Palace, they begin a harrowing journey across London. But their fight is far from over—the threat from within the palace is as real as the one outside it."
I will change much of the events in the story in order to make it fit to my liking and the characters I wish to put in the story.
This is the cast (It's quite rough though, I will make some certain stuff happen to some people and then not to the other.):
-Ollie: Velma (Changing the gender of Ollie in order to make him into her.)
Scooby will just be around sharing events with other characters and such. I was thinking of making him be Small Sam, though I thought that would be a little hard for me to write, just yet. I may re-make this later when the other books are released and such but this will have to do for now.
Chapter one: Everything's my fault
"They'll chase you.
They'll rip you to pieces.
They'll feed on you."
Sugey had been behind the grocery store when they took her. She and the other kids had been playing there, even though they knew they weren't allowed to do so. It was just too dangerous, even though the kids had managed to fence off the area pretty good there was still a chance for the zombie like adults to get in. Everyone knew well what those adults did to the kids they captured and the mere thought of it made everyone shudder. The other kids had managed to get inside rather quickly after that the adults climbed over the fence. However the adults sealed off the way between Sugey and the entrance to the store called Miller's pillar, it had nothing to do with pillars though... The whole scene had been taken place under silence, the adults didn't give many sounds due to the fact that their brains had stopped working a long time ago, the brains were there though just a mushy substance which they could make it without. Sugey had been too scared to scream and when the backup from inside arrived the adults had already plucked Sugey and put her into a sack, as well as climbed back over the fence again.
"We're too late." Max, a lanky thirteen year old holding a baseball bat said sweeping his gaze over the empty parking lot "They've taken her."
"That's too bad, I really liked that little girl." said a rather tall fourteen year old with afro hair.
"Poor Sugey, this was the third attack this week! I can imagine that Shaggy will be frantic about the kidnapping of his sister." Daphne said sitting down on a bigger rock nearby placing her head in her hands "What's happening? Are they getting closer or are they getting bolder?" she asked, she was referring to the adults.
"Bold? Na, they're too stupid for something like that. Only types like me deserve that. I'm not afraid of anything, I'd show them what real courage is like." the one with afro hair said spitting on the ground. He may be their second best fighter, next to Shaggy, but he could be a real prick at some times.
"Then why on earth would they come here, eh, Carl?" Daphne asked getting up from where she was seated, looking at the boy with afro hair.
"They're just hungry Daph, they always are." Max answered. "This is getting too hard Daph, they'll end up taking us one by one. I mean, we can't be everywhere when Fred is out with the fixing squad. Can't we just order everyone to stay inside and stuff?"
"Stay inside? All the time? No! Then we would become crazy at last." Carl answered with a snort looking at Max.
"Inside is much better." Max answered with a shrug.
"Max does actually have a point there. We would survive better if we stayed inside but you do also have a point there, Carl." Daphne answered nodding.
"No, he's just afraid of the outside, that's all." Carl answered and grinned wickedly at Max whom rolled his eyes, so did Daphne.
"Alright you two, let's just see to that there isn't any holes in the fence that the adults came in... ehm, over." Daphne said and walked over to the wall where the adults had some from, tightening her grip around the club she held in her hands. Walking with caution, you could never know, there may be an adult there. The group of three quickly looked at the fence wall fencing off the area from the outside making sure that there was nothing wrong with it before walking back inside the store.
"It was all my fault." Daphne thought when she was inside the store, now as alone as one could be in a store where around forty kids lived, together. Technically it was actually her fault, she was Fred's second in command and she was responsible for the kids, and that they were safe and weren't doing just what the other kids and Sugey had been doing, not following the rules. She wondered what she would say to Shaggy whose sister had been kidnapped, and to Fred, he would probably yell at her for letting such a thing happen. He wouldn't trust her with a task like that again, that was for sure.
What would he think? It was all her fault.
Alright, this is the first chapter. I'll bring up the next one as soon as I can and I started making this story because I can find no suitable way to continue the Mystery Of Their Lives so I started this to give you something to read meanwhile and to kind of "excuse" to that it takes so long time. :P Hehe.
Take care and please, do leave a review so that I know if you liked or didn't. The review button is there for a reason and it's calling after you, YES YOU! Now go and press it!
