I'm working as a security officer
at a college campus
in some suburban
area. The college is in one huge building that is very modern architecture
. There is a cafeteria
which wraps around a reflecting pool that is surrounded by a 12 foot wall with a plexiglass
window in the middle so people can look at the water (and all the cute fish
). Tables are arranged against one wall and there is space between the tables and the wall for a path on which the campus security vehicles patrol the area.
While hanging aound at the cafeteria, watching people put promotional stuff for their companies and websites and services (you know, those little paper tents), one guy starts placing alarm clocks with company logos on them. For some reason this seems expensive and odd, so I try to kick the guy out. He starts whining "Why are you
doing this, you can't mess with me?" So I start a fight with him so we have reason to kick him out.
Once he is gone, I play with the clock at the first table and open it up. It doesn't even work as a clock and is hollow inside. I tell another person that we have to throw them all out so we start gathering. I pick up one at the next table and realize it's ticking, so I throw it over the plexiglass wall into the pool. As soon as it hits the water, it explodes. We realize that there is enough explosive here to demolish the college, so we begin evacuating the entire complex.
I drive around permiter of cafeteria looking for people and warning everyone, then double back to do another lap, since this is where most people hang out during the day.
I leave to head to my room (apparently I'm a student as well; I live in the dorms), and continue to tell people to leave. By the time I get to the residential corner of the campus, everything is chaos but most people are leaving. Some people don't realize it's serious and are hiding in their rooms. When I enter the building instead of
running out, despite my position as an important security officer, people doubt it even more. I keep yelling at everyone I see to leave. A friend who lives next
door to me thinks it's stupid and won't leave even when I tell him to. When I get to my room, I grab a couple essentials and then get out. Right as I'm leaving the building, the evacuation is completing.
While I'm about to gather with everyone, trying to keep order and still yelling on bullhorn for people to get out of the building, somehow I realize that it's almost time for the bombs to go off because there previously were helicopters circling, which had since backed off and weren't shouting on bullhorns anymore.
Suddenly, I notice where the helicopters went: they're circling the crowd of evacuees and suddenly they
have guns as do people at the permiter of group and all of the students, staff and other college personnel are hostages.
The captors lead everyone into the same building as the cafeteria entrance. It's a level of the building which is almost never used. They herd half of us in and then a big conveyor belt starts turning which runs us off the edge and down to another conveyor which moves us to fill
the entire width of the "building". We are crammed in on two levels and it is pitch black. A few of us at the edges are staying calm and try to escape; we manage to shimmy down the edges where the conveyors attach to the wall. About 20 of us get out and drop down to the floor below which is in the sewer system. Part of the sewer system, some sort of refinery, is the actual target of the bombs, not the people nor the college. The terrorists just want it to seem evil and don't mind killing lots of people. The conveyors are mounted on moving platforms that can slide to straddle (above and below) the cafeteria where the bombs are. When the bombs go off, the people will die pretty quick and then the shock will hit the refining station, too.
The sewer system is arranged in a large cross with the longest segment devoted to the school. At the intersection is the target. At each of the other ends, the main tunnel has a end area with little doors. We explore the "north" end first and find a bathroom. Trying to find a way out, we rip up the drop ceiling and try to poke holes through vents but there's nothing, so we all try the other way. This is a lot roomier and has a hallway which is decorated like the animated "Yellow Submarine".
At the end of the hall is the entrance to a nature center and a child care area out a zoo. There is a shotgun mounted under "break in the event of emergency" glass on the right wall so we know there are big animals somewhere (which we can eat). This seems to be a relatively safe place to avoid the blast. We then notice two giant pandas and are scared, but then we realize they are animatronic.
We explore the center, since we've decided to stay there. There are all sorts of books and nature exhibits. My mom (who appeared out of nowhere) challenges me to a race
with some little frogs in one display.
Then I wake up.
