Don't You, Forget About Me.

The Lockdown.

he storm was raging. I was driving in my car to the supermarket before it got worse. I parked in the car park of Walmart and climbed out heading for the door. I walked inside and lifted up a small basket from the pile heading for the cereal isle. I picked up the items I wanted. Some pop tarts and a box of lucky charms yum. I wandered around the isles picking up various items and looking at the different boxes. My name is Austin by the way. Austin Carlile, I’m 21 and a student at college in Cali and its my love for food that has me wandering around the isles of Walmart whilst theres a storm going on outside. I headed for the checkout with my basket which was now quite heavy due to the amount of food I had filled it with. There was no one at the checkout. I waited for a moment. No one came. Now I thought about it their was distinct lack of people in the place. In fact there was no one. I was snapped out of my thoughts by what looked to be a ginger who looked about my age heading towards me.

‘Um there’s no one here and the doors are all locked..’ He spoke softly as he put his basket on the floor.

‘So you mean to tell me we are locked in?’ I asked him putting my own heavy basket on the floor.

‘Pretty much.. I’m Alan by the way’ He smiled and held his tattoo covered hand out to me.

‘Austin.’ I smiled back and shook his hand before dropping mine back by my side. ‘So what are you doing in here all by yourself?’

‘Well I was getting some snacks before the storm got worse.. you?’ he answered sheepishly and ran a hand through his long ginger locks.

‘Pretty much the same as you’ I laughed and pointed down to the basket full of different food, mainly junk.

I looked to Alan and then to the rest of the store. It was pretty much us two and I had no idea how long we were going to be stuck in here. I had no Idea what to do or where to go. I looked at Alan who looked just as puzzled as I did.

‘So um what should we do..’ I mumbled quietly to him and looked around again.

‘I have an idea’ he smiled picked up his basket motioning for me to lift mine and follow him. I followed him up the stairs to the furniture department.

There was a big empty space in the corner so Alan shifted one of the double beds, and a dinning table into the space. He placed his food basket onto the table and sat down on the bed patting the space beside him. I sat down and smiled shyly up at him.

‘So um tell me about yourself Austin..’ He mumbled quietly and bit his lip. ‘Since were stuck in here for god knows how long we might as well get to know each other’

‘Well I’m 21 and I attend College in California and I’m studying music.’ I smiled at him ‘you?’ I bit my lip gently.

‘Oh I attend college and I’m also studying music.’ Alan smiled at me, giggling a little.

‘Oh that’s cool! How long do you think we will be stuck in here?’ I ask biting my lip. I really would like to get home but at the same time I don’t think I’m going to mind being stuck here with this kid at all. He seems cool.

‘I have no idea.. I hope not to long. Perhaps a few hours or a few days’ He smiled politely and laid down on the bed resting his head on the pillow. ‘Oh you don’t mind bed sharing do you? Just because we hardly know one another and..’

‘It’s find don’t worry about it’ I cut him off before he could finish. I didn’t mind bed sharing besides I’d rather not sleep alone at a time like this.

I wandered off to the electronics isle and picked up a cd player and some good cd’s I reckon he’d like. I brought them back and plugged it into the power plug on the wall. Might as well make the most of what’s in here, after all we could be here for weeks. I stuck in a Linkin Park cd and turned the volume up high, moshing as soon as the intro began.

‘How’d you know I like Linkin Park?’ Alan asked getting up to mosh with me.

‘I took a wild guess and your Slipknot shirt kinda gave away the sort of music you were into’ I Laughed and brushed my hair out of my eyes.

‘Oh I guess’ He laughed with me and began to mosh again.

I lost all thought of where I was for a little bit of time and began to think that perhaps being locked in here with Alan isn’t going to be all bad. He seems like a good kid and he is quite attractive which is always a bonus. I can’t believe I’m even thinking of that at a time like this but I can’t help it. I snap out of my thoughts and smile at Alan before screaming and moshing along to the next song.
