There’s a crackling noise, like an old film starting up. We all turn towards the sound. The projected images on the wall are going out. They flare into white brightness, one by one, as if an explosion of light has washed away the whole set, the way a nuclear bomb goes off in a movie.
The ground rumbles beneath my feet and something slams against the reinforced door hard enough that the noise echoes through the whole cave.

I had random.org select a page for me and it decided on 147.“Drew, Jess!” Zacheria barks. “You’re going to stand here. If we crop it well, it’ll look like the front door to a mansion. Ben!”
“Drew.” I turn to him mock-stern. “You’re going to sit on the toilet. If we crop it well, you’ll look like you’re sitting at a fancy French restaurant.”
“Jesse,” he says right back. “You’re going to get in the fountain. If we frame it right, it’ll look like an Olympic pool.”
We lean against each other in hysterics, eyes watering.

Tyler was still holding my hand. He hadn’t let go of it the entire ride home. “What if we just stay here?” he asked, staring up at the house. The sky had gone dark, the moon just visible above the trees, a spattering of stars beyond it.
“In the driveway?” I laughed.
“In this car. We could order pizza, tip the seats back, and sleep. Skip school tomorrow and listen to every CD in my glove compartment. Get Chinese food and have my little brother drop off some clothes. We’d only go inside to use the bathroom and the phone.”
