Chapter 6 of the Project - By Yours Truly

Me: Ello, mate! Or... do they say "g'day?" Hmm... *rubs chin*
You guys: What is the purpose of this?
Me: Noooo, waitttt! They drink tea! And have crumpets!
You guys: Um, pretty sure that's the cliché picture of British people, yup.
Me: Nooooooooo, that's not it! They wear rice hats under cherry blossom trees!
You guys: Chinese?
Me: Ride sleds pulled by huskies past their igloo houses?!
You guys: Canadians?!!?
Me: *does dramatic gasp* How dare you?! I was talking about penguins in the arctic. *pouts*
You guys: *groans* Penguins don't ride sleds and what is the point of this?!
Me: I don't know! I'm hyper! *bounces*
You guys: *walks away*

Um, I am way too hyper to get rid of that intro. So just ignore it. XD

As you read on the title, it's my turn to post a chapter for the Project! And that means there's been five other chapters so if you haven't read those, here you go! :D

Chapter 1-3 by Gracie, Coolcat, and Sarahkey
Chapter 4 by Flora
Chapter 5 by Violet (If your planning on reading or in the middle of reading The Maze Runner series, go down past the spoilers at the beginning of the post! This is just a warning!)

Well, I hope you enjoy my chapter! ^.^ I had a load of fun writing it and I think I got my character written accurately. :D I made sure Lostfairy had some sarcastic replies and responses to everything cause I am like that in real life.

Without further ado, here's chapter six!

Chapter 6 of the Project - By Lostfairy

One moment, Lost was with her friends. The next, she was making her throat hoarse by screaming as she tumbled around in the swirling abyss, at the mercy of the portal.

Lost twisted and turned for what seemed like forever before she finally flew out of the portal, landing in a heap on the cement ground.

“Where am I?” Lost murmured as she picked herself up. Just as she said it, she heard a faint scream coming from the portal behind her.

Lost wheeled around just as a blonde haired girl flew out of the portal, crashing right into her.

“Ow! I think I hurt something.” The girl rolled off Lost, mumbling.

“Koolest?! What-what are you doing here?” Lost cried in delight and helped Koolest up.

“I fell through the portal, like everyone did,” Koolest rubbed her head. “And I guess we somehow ended up together here?”

“Where is here?” Lost said.

The two girls were standing on an empty parking lot of some big grocery store that was surrounded by tall skyscrapers and buildings. Buses and taxis zipped by on the roads, honking somewhat randomly.

“Koolest, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore. Or, well, the portal. Whatever,” Lost said.

“Wait, hold up!” Koolest said, pointing at a red bus waiting at a stoplight. “A red bus. That has, like, two levels. Big, tall buildings.”

“Um, good job, we figured out we’re in a city,” Lost said sarcastically. “How does that help?”

“Don’t you see? We’re in New York!” Koolest exclaimed.

“Oh!” Lost said as it slowly dawned on her. “Well, let’s find out for sure.”

“Lost? Hey, look, hey, Lost!” Koolest said desperately as Lost marched over to a lady on a sidewalk.

“Excuse me, miss,” Lost said to the lady when she was closer. “Are we in New York?”

“Oh, hello, Lostfairy!” The lady smiled, ignoring Lost’s question, and squeezed Lost into a hug.

“Do we know you?” Koolest stared.

The lady laughed. “Why, of course! Don’t be silly, girls! I’m your cousin! And yes, this is New York. You flew here yesterday to meet with my mom! She told me all about it in a phone call yesterday.”

“You are? We did?” Lost said. “She did?”

“Yes,” the lady’s smile flickered slightly. “Well, I’m a busy woman as you know and must get back to work! Bye, girls!"

“Uh, bye,” Lost waved halfheartedly as the lady hurried down the sidewalk.

“What,” Koolest said, “was that?”

“She acted like she knew us! But who the heck is she?” Lost said. “Last I checked, we don’t have a cousin living in New York.”

“Maybe she’s a distant relative?” Koolest shrugged.

“Huh,” was all Lost could say.

“Well, let’s start looking around. Maybe we’ll find another portal to take us back to our friends,” Koolest said.

The two girls started walking down the wide sidewalks and gaped as they looked up at the massive buildings, probably looking like classic tourists. They crossed streets and turned one way, then the next. All the buildings started to look the same.

“Are we lost?” Lost asked, panting slightly. “No pun intended.”

“Do you want me to pretend to be the older protective sibling or do you want the truth?” Koolest said.

“The truth,” Lost groaned, now knowing was Koolest would say.

“Yup. We’re lost. Completely and totally lost,” Koolest declared.

“Alright, we can fix this. We have to, if we want to see our friends again,” Lost forehead crinkled, a habit she did whenever she was worried.

“Lost, please tell me I’m dreaming,” Koolest said.

“You’re dreaming,” Lost said. “How does that help? You know, you seem a little funny today. First you say we’re in a city which I can clearly see and then you want me to say you’re dreaming. Maybe it’s some kind of side effect from the portal.”

“I’m going to sound crazy,” Koolest ignored Lost’s remarks, “but I just saw someone who looked like me walk around that corner.”

“You’re right. You sound crazy,” Lost laughed.

“I’m serious! I saw a girl with blonde hair and wearing my favorite shirt go around that corner,” Koolest pointed.

“Okay,” Lost said after looking at Koolest for a moment, “if you really think something weird is going on, let’s go find out if it was your doppelgänger.”

Lost and Koolest raced down the sidewalk and around the corner. Lost could see two girls, one blonde haired and the other dark haired, walking across the street up ahead at a brisk pace.

“C’mon, they’re moving fast!” Lost said.

Lost and Koolest bolted to the crosswalk and then crossed quickly, making sure no cars were heading toward them. As Lost and Koolest chased after the girls, the brown haired one looked behind her. She then hurriedly nudged the blonde haired girl, who looked back to. Suddenly, they too started to run.

“Oh great, we look like creepy nutso stalkers,” Lost panted.

“We can’t let them get away now, they could call the cops on us,” Koolest answered. “We need to at least catch up to them and explain ourselves.”

“Alright, then let’s hurry up!” Lost said.

Just as they ran around another corner, something rushing into an alley caught Lost’s eye.

Lost nodded toward the alleyway, hoping Koolest got the gesture, and walked quietly toward it. Holding her breath, she turned into the alley.

And saw herself staring right back at her.

“Woah!” Lost yelled, stumbling backward, arms spinning wildly.

“Lost, what is it?” Koolest asked just as she turned into the alley. “Oh my.”

The two girls they had cornered in the alley were both staring at them with wide-eyed expressions and the dark haired one’s legs trembled.

Oh yeah, there was also the fact they looked exactly like Lost and Koolest.

“How-how-how do you look exactly like us?” the Koolest doppelgänger stammered.

“And why were you following us?” the Lost doppelgänger quivered

“Oh dude,” Lost absently rubbed the back of her head. “It’s like we’re in some kind of alternate universe.”

“Ohhh,” Koolest said. “That makes sense. Kinda.”

“What’s that supposed to mean?” Lost’s doppelgänger said.

“Look, okay, so, me and her,” Lost pointed at Koolest, “fell through a portal when we were with our friends, got separated from them, and landed here. Another world. I think this is like our world except not exactly."

“How so?” Koolest’s doppelgänger replied, leaning against a garbage bin in the alley.

“Well, like, if that was me, I wouldn’t be cowering in a corner over there like she is,” Lost gestured at her doppelgänger.

“Hey!” Lost’s doppelgänger said, straightening up.

“I think Lost means that our personalities might be different,” Koolest gave Lost a small frown.

“Here, let me try to explain everything,” Lost said, brow crinkling. “Let’s pretend the earth we came from and your earth are twins. Identical twins. But twins don’t have the same personalities or interests, right? So they are slightly different in that way. They look the same but deep down, they aren’t.”

“Wow, that’s really hard to wrap my brain around,” Koolest’s doppelgänger said. “But the fact we look exactly alike makes it easier to believe."

“What now, then?” Lost’s doppelgänger said, visibly relaxing. “How are you going to get back to your friends?”

“We don’t know, to be honest,” Koolest said.

Lost’s doppelgänger looked at Koolest’s with a questioning look. Koolest’s doppelgänger nodded.

“We could help you, if you want,” Lost’s doppelgänger said, looking back at Lost and Koolest.

“Really?” Koolest said. “You don’t have to, you know. Just because we look alike doesn’t mean you gotta-”

“Yeah, you could go see your cousin or aunt or whoever,” Lost cut in Koolest’s rambling.

“We do have to be back at our aunt’s in a while but we can try to figure out how to get you back to your friends,” Koolest’s doppelgänger said.

“Do you know where the portal will just appear?” Lost’s doppelgänger asked.

“No, not really. Portals are random. Sometimes they appear in closets or just out in the open.” Lost said as she leaned against the brick wall.

“Wait! What if we go back to our home and check the closets there?” Koolest said excitedly.

“Uh, we’re in New York. Not anywhere close to home.” Lost pointed out.

“Right,” Koolest sighed.

“But that’s a start!” Koolest’s doppelgänger encouraged. “Let’s keep thinking.”

Soon, the four girls were brainstorming ideas on how and where the portal would show up. Slowly, the idea making turned into sharing goofy stories from their earth. Laughter filled the alley and all the worry about getting back to their friends seemed to leave Lost and Koolest.

“Oh man,” Lost’s doppelgänger said, checking her watch, “it’s getting late. And we didn’t even help you guys out!”

“It’s fine!” Koolest told her sister’s doppelgänger. “Me and Lost will figure it out.”

Just as Lost was about to agree, a loud crashing noise filled the alley and the ground trembled violently. Lost could have sworn the bricks on the walls seemed to move slightly. Suddenly, a light green portal appeared on the brick wall and started swirling wildly, pulsing with incredible energy.

“Look, it came to us! It’s our way back to our earth and friends!” Lost cheered over the noise.

“It looks like it’s time for us to go,” Koolest said, looking at their doppelgängers. “Sorry for running after you. And thank you for hanging out with us. We had fun.”

“So did we,” Koolest’s doppelgänger smiled sadly. “Now go! Go back to your friends!”

Lost nodded. “Goodbye! We’ll never forget this!”

Lost looked at Koolest, grabbed her hand, and together they ran and jumped into the portal. Almost immediately, the portal swirled faster and sucked itself back into the wall.

“Neither will we,” Lost’s doppelgänger murmured softly.

The End!
