Info before you start the story: This story takes in 2220. Scientist have created mutated Ants in a lab. The Ants are named, Dyla. Dyla stands for, Destroying Yonsinger Loops Atmosphere. Yonsinger loops are basically Black holes except they come up when something passes the Karman line. The ants have escaped and are destroying the human race. Dyla Ants hate the cold. Liams dad is on Mount Baldy for medical attention due to his sickness. This story is interactive, so you chose your ending.
She said she would never leave, but her screams echoed in narrow hallway. Liam pulled his little sister Ava, and his little brother Ben closer. Liam knew this day would come. "Liam, go help mom" Ben urged in a whisper.
"No! Stay Liam, Im scrared" Ava whined as she pulled her sad eyes.
"Ava! Mom helped you when you tripped into a pothole! And she stood up for you when I called you clumsy." Ben arguded. "Which you are a clutz." Ben murmmerd.
Ava and Ben have very mature minds for their age. Maybe it's because they have experienced more mind scaring things that any normal kid from the 20th century would experience in their entire life. Or maybe it's because they have grown up with evolved technology.
"Ben you know more than anyone how much a Dyla ant bite can hurt someone. Its deadly!" Ava gestured to his calf where a huge, red, swollen bump was.
Liam knew he was outnumbered by the mutated Dyla Ants, but he also knew that his Mom needed help.
[[The decision]]Liam Should...
[[Go help Mom]]
[[Stay with Ben and Ava]]"Sorry Ava, Bens right I need to help mom. I´ll be back." Liam promised
Liam slowly opened the closet door and put his bare feet on the cold, cracked tile. He looked left, then right and walked quietly across the small hideout and into the, polluted, scary city, Los Angeles. Before the Ants came there had been a big earthquake in LA that left the buildings and skyscrapers in ruins, and the people in shock. Liam passed a small fire the had engulfed a wreckage of a apartment building. He shoke his head sadly and started a slow jog. Liam was thoughtful of where he put his feet, because he could'nt see a foot in front of him due to smog. Liam felt a squish under his foot. Liam took one step closer and saw ruins of skyscraper, humongous, and tiny Ants, including the corpse of his Mom. Liam felt a sharp pain on his calf and passed out.
THE END :( Press this to go back to the start for a different ending [[!]]"Ava is right Ben, I need to stay with you two." Liam explained
Liam looked around the room for something to barcade the door in-case the Ants come back. He sees a Dune Hover,(a Dune Hover is a floating buggy thats made out of metal, and shpaed like a M,) a broom, and a a box full of canned beans in a corner.
[[Barcading the door]]Liam Barricades the door with,
[[The Dune Hover]]Liam grabbed the broom and layed it against the door. "Liam why don´t you use the Dune hover insted, it´s much heavier?" Ben asked.
"Ben, be quiet please." Liam smiled a fake smile.
Right when Liam said please, ants swarmed the room. Not the major workers, they could´nt get under the door. They were minor workers, the smaller ones. First Ava went out, and slamed into the floor, leaving a halo of blood around her head. Then Ben went out, turning pale and crumpling to his knees, then face first into the ground. For Liam, it was so hard seeing his younger siblings die, but there were to many. Liam layed on the floor in the corner so he would'nt hurt himslef when the Dyla ants injected their venom. He felt many sharp pains in his ankles and fingers, then nothing.
The End :( Press this to go back to the start for a differnt ending [[!]]Liam grabbed the box and heaved it against the door. "Hey, look!"
Ava excliamed. Liam followed her gaze and saw a hole in the ground where the box used to be. "Lets go down it!" Ava said excitedly.
Before Liam opened his mouth to object, Avas small head and her messy brown hair disspapered. "let´s go" Liam sighed.
Liam grabbed Bens hand a they went in after Ava.
[[The Hole]]Liam pushed the Dune Hover against the door, "Um Liam, why can´t we just ride the Dune Hover out of here?" Ben asked.
There was a fully charged battery in it, his Dad had replaced it the a week ago, Liam watched him. But it was very small and could only fit two people. Should Liam..
[[sacrifice himself so Ava and Ben could ride the Dune Hover to the safety of Mount Baldy.]]
[[Ride the hover to Mount Baldy by himslef, no need for more weight]]
[[Say no and leave the Hover where it is.]]"Ok, Ben take Ava to the Hover and tell the hover assitant to set route to Mount Baldy. Also tell teh assiatnt to start the engines. I'll be there in a moment." Liam told Ben. Ben took Ava´s hand and they got into the Dune Hover. Liam watched as the Hover lifted off the ground. As soon as the hover was off the ground, tiny Dyla ants swarmed under the door. He looked back up and only saw the smog in the sky. The ceiling had been ripped open. Liam felt a sharp pain on his foot and he saw balck spots in his vison. Then nothing.
THE END :( Press this to go back to the start for a different ending [[!]]Liam tells Ava and Ben to sit still so he can get the Dune Hover ready. Liam jumps into the hover and tells the hover asstiant to set the route to Mount Baldy. Liam looks back as the hover starts to leavate of the ground. He sees the minor Dyla workers swarm under the door. He looks back at Ben and Ava. They have a horrifed look on their faces. The hover shots through the ceiling and into the smog.
[[Mount Baldy]]"No, i'm going to leave it there." Liam answers.
"Im hungry~" Ava whines.
"I cant belive you two are twins, Bens so much more mature." Liam mubbled. Liam got up and walked over to the box full of tomato cans and hoisted it up and droped in front of Ava."Hey look." Ben pointed to the corner where the box used to be.
Liam glanced over his shoulder and saw a hole the size of a hover tire. But Ava wasn't even paying atttention, she was consume her food so fast it looked like Joey Chesnut. (He was a historical eating figure in one of Liams favorite movies about the old food hotdogs.) Ava looke up and saw the hole. Her eyes widened and shem quickly got up and jump into it. Liam sighed and grabbed Bens arm an they jumped in after Ava.
[[The Hole]] Liam, Ava and Ben were going under the streets in LA. Ben said that they were either in they subway tunnels or the sewers with the punget smell as evedince. Ava claimed that they were in a secrte tunnel leading to a palace, even though there are no royals living in LA. Liam thought they were walking through tunnels that human surrvial groups made. Liam used his small flashlight to guide them through the dark tunnel. Liam saw a man with shaggy blonde hair and dark brown eyes, when he shone the flahlight behind them.
[[The man]]"Hello kids" He waved awarkdly. "Are you lost? Here, come with me."
He walked passed them and turned left in a spliting of the tunnel. Liam looked at Ava and Ben beside him, who were looking at him for directions. He really had no choice. They were lost, so he geustured to they way the man went.
[[Everybody]]The Man took them to a sub-terrian meca. Liam was surprised of how how many humans were in one place. A lady came up to them. She was probally sixteen or seventeen. She had light blonde hair that stopped at her shoulders. ¨Hi." She waved.¨My names is Cora, and the man that brought you here was Marcus. He runs the place."She gestured to the communtiy behind her.
There was little rooms carved oput in the stone walls. ¨Marcus asked me to give you a tour. Would you like one?" Cora aksed.
Liam was still cautious about everybody here.
[[Cora]]If you are reading this the main character (Liam) has died. If you would like to start over and go back to the starting page please click th button that reads, "When she left"
[[When she left]] "You have arrived" The hover computer stated. Liam was still practing what he was going to say when he arrived at Mount Baldy without Ava and Ben. The hover touched the ground, and its door flung open. A rush of cold air blew Liams shaggy, overgrown brown hair in his face. People stood around the hover, squinting their eyes to see who had made it. People wore shorts, and T-shirts, some had ski jackets that clung to their torso's. No wonder Mount Baldy was the ideal place, it was borderline warmrth, and borderline coldness. Then he saw a very familar face.
[[Dear Dad]]Should Liam go with Cora?
[[Go on the tour]]
[[Dont go on the tour]]"Sure." Liam Smiled. "Can Ava and Ben come along?" He asked.
"Of course!" Cora beamed. "They can also aquiant with some of the kids." She pointed behind her to some kids that looked about six or seven, Ben and Ava's age.
"Can we go over there Liam, please." Ava begged. She hoped up and down, excited.
Liam thinks hard, he should...
[[Let Ava and Ben go to the other kids.]]
[[Keep them with you on the tour.]]Liam declines politely to Coras offer. "Thanks, but I dont wanna leave Ava or Ben."
¨They can come.¨ Cora replied. ¨Or they can stay and acquanit with the other kids.¨ Cora pointed to a group of kids about six or seven. Ben and Avas age.
¨Its fine Cora." Liam confirmed. With a hint of annoyance in his voice.
¨Just come, don´t be so clingy.¨ Cora teased, oblivious to Liams annoyance.
¨Cora I said no. Just leave me alone.¨ Liam pleaded, very annoyed.
¨Oh, ok.¨ Cora said with a rejected face. Liam took Ava and Bens hand and they walked around the community. Going into the school, the hosptial, the neighboorhood, and the market. It was amazing.
[[Dyla Ants!!]]When Liam was walking back from the Med-clinc when he saw the Dyla ants. They were attacking all the humans. Then the Dyla ant, or the major worker saw him and charged. Liam shoved Ava and Ben to the side. Liam felt the major worker scoop him up. They major worker chirped and then sunk his claws into Bens thigh.

"Thank you Liam!" Ava Exclaimed. She took Bens hand and she skiped towards the other kids.
"Shes cute." Cora complitmented. She turned on her heel and began the tour. She showed Liam the med-clinic, the school, the neighboorhood, the farm and the market. Everything was built inside the the stone walls and the farm was outside but completly hidden by a skyscraper that was still in one piece. Liam thought it was breathtaking how the built an entire new ecosystem.
[[Dyla Ants!! ]]"You need to know your way around too." Liam answered. Meaning that Ben and Ava could not go.
"Come on Liam!" Ben urged.
"No." Liam insisted.
Liam walked away, Ben and Ava trailed behind him with disapointment. Cora kept silent and only talked when they entered a new place. The place really was a wonder. There was a market, a neighboorhood, a school, a farm that was outside, and a med-clinc.
[[Dyla Ants!! ]]"Run!"Somebody screamed.
"Whats going on?" Liam asked. He started to get anxious. "Where are Ben and Ava?" He said to nobody.
"I'm sure there fine." Cora insured.
Liam paced, then he started to jog into the fleeing people. Cora ran after him. Then he saw them. The Dyla ants, minor, and major, ripped humans apart. Then he saw a face, Ava's. Then a major worker saw him and charged.
[[Does Liam fight?]]
[[Does Liam flee?]]When Cora, Liam, Ben and Ava, were walking back from the the tour someone screamed. "Run!" They yelled.
"Liam, what does that man mean?" Ava asked.
"I don't kn-" Liam was cut off with a loud chirp. A major worker rounded the corner and crawled after the fleing humans. Cora, Liam, Ben, and Ava, ran with everybody towards the farms entrance, who wants to be trapped down here with the Dyla ants? Then Liam hand got ripped from Bens. Liam looked back to see Ava and Ben in the major workers hand. The major worker chirped, and then she sunk her manidbles into Ben and Ava's torso. The foul stench of blood drifted down the hallway. Cora pulled Liam away from the horrid scene.
[[After]]Liam stood his ground. He will avenge his brother and sister, he will. Then as the major worker lunged, a girl with blonde hair the stopped at her shoulders jumped in front of him. Cora.. The major worker caught Cora with her mandibles, chirped and sunk its sharp claws in to her leg. Then she through Cora aside and looked liam over. The major worker chirped, then she crawled over to Liam=, and sunk her claws into his arm.
The End :( Click this to go back to the start for a differnet ending.[[!]]Liam ran as fast as he could, but the ant was gainging. Then a girl with blonde hair cut to her shoulders jumped in front of the major Dyla worker and gave Liam time to run to the farms entrance and stay alive. Cora..
[[After]]It took a couple of months to get over Ava and Bens death, but Liam made it to Mount Baldy. Dyla ants kept there distance, but stayed at the bottom of Mount Baldy. The last surviving humans lived in fear, and "Peace". The Ants now ruled the world. The face belonged to Liam's dad. Liam suddenly felt anxiety building up inside of him. He wanted to get back in the hover and fly off, but that would not help his situation. Only make the hole Liam was in deeper.
Once Liam was alone with his dad, he followed his Dad into his wooden cabin that was small but cozy. It looked like it was built recnetly and rushed. The wood that made up the walls were rough and had not been smoothed.
Liam's dad gestured to the blue armchair the looked like it was from the 20th century.
Liam sat down and thought of Ava and Ben. Should he confess?
[[Don't Confess]]¨Dad.." Liam said softly. ¨I want to tell you something.¨
¨Go ahead." Liam´s dad pressed.
¨You might hate me.¨ Liam warned, looking at the steel table Liam´s dad leaned against.
¨We´ll find out won´t we.¨ Liam´s dad said.
¨I left Ava and Ben!¨ Liam burst out. The anxiety in Liam disappeared, but got replaced with fear.
¨Im glad you told me." Liam´s dad said, his eyes getting watery. ¨You´ll have to earn their life´s back if you except hospitality though.¨ He turned his head away.
¨That´s fair.¨ Liam agreed.
The next couple of month Liam worked in the Ski restort, and around his dad´s cabin. Bringing food from dune hovers, and smoothing out the wood. Life went on, but the Dyla ants won. Keeping the humans penned up at Mount Baldy, patrolling the bottom of it. Waiting until summer came."So Liam, I noticed Ben and Ava aren't with you." Liam's dad talked slowly and cautiously. "Why is that?" He asked.
"They died." Liam answered, not lying, yet.
"How?" Liam's dad pressed.
"Dyla ants." Liam said through gritted teeth. Anxiety boiling in his stomach. Liam averted his eyes off of his dads gray eyes and to his tapping foot.
"And you did not." Liam's dad observed. Catching Liams eye. "You left them Liam, I know it." He choked on the word "them". "I dont need your cofession to prove it." He cried. Tears pooling in his eye's.
"Dad, of course not." Liam lied. The lie left guilt in him.
"Look me in the eye and say that." Liam's dad whispered. "Son." He hissed.
"Dad, I did not leave Ava, and Ben." Liam looked his dad in the eyes.
"Liar!" Liam's dad screamed. He grabbed a bat and gave Liam a deadly blow to the skull. Splattering blood on the blue armchair.
