Code Red

“Come on we need to finish this lab. It’s almost midnight and we still need to write up the report and its due tomorrow,” I said to my incompetent lab partner.

“What was that? Did you hear something?”

“No more stalling, let’s get through this.”

“No seriously I heard something.”

“Your mind is playing tricks on you.”

“Did you see that?!”

“See wha-”

“CODE RED!” the university PA system shouted.

“Which one is that?”

I searched the panel beside the lab phone, “It says ‘Code Red’ is an intruder alert.” My lab partner ran out, before I could follow I heard her scream.

    What the heck was there?

    These kinds of stories always scare me!
