"Oh, I see." Al nodded, then noticed the building was shaking, "I'm not sure this structure is entirely stable."

"I'm getting out of here! Bye!" Summer exclaimed, leaving the room and heading for the front door.

"W-W-What in the world is going on?" asked Doodles now starting to become afraid.

"Must be some strong wind." replied Cranky looking towards the window.

Ooqi woke up and looked at the commander, who was ready to freak out, then at Gort who also looked alarmed.

"I think Summer has the right idea." Gort stated calmly as he started for the door, though he was pushed aside by the commander who had broken into a full-fledged run.

"If there is a storm outside, leaving the building may not be the wisest course of action." Al logically deduced, though he also got up and followed the others out of the room.

When they were all outside it was probably pretty noticeable that no one else in the village was awake. That is, if there were other people actually in the village.

"You know, I think this is a good place for the Special Force™ to start its first mission!" The commander spoke up with confidence in his voice.

"Oh come on Morry, there are other places where we're needed more." Gort responded.

"What was the mission again?" Summer asked.

"Um, to kill bad guys?" Al deadpanned.

"Oh, right." Summer replied with a slight embarrassed laugh.

"But there are bad guys here!" the commander responded, sounding slightly more childish.

"No, there are not!" Gort snapped back.

"How do you know that?" Ooqi responded, "I mean, it threatened to kill us. That's pretty bad."

"Let's stay!" Naeleen agreed, "I want to fight! Let's fight!"

"I'm afraid fighting a ghost would be quite impossible. None of us have enchanted weaponry, nor are any of us a mage. We are quite helpless against the forces that defy science." Al remarked, then added under his breath, "Damn those logic-betraying heathens..."

"But I want to stay!" the commander pouted.

"No!" Gort yelled back.

"Fight! Fight! Fight!" Naeleen screamed.

"WHAT ARE YOU NUTS?!?" exclaimed Cranky facing against Naeleen's face, "This mission could be dangerous! We might get killed, or have severe injuries, we would never see anybody or anything again!"

"Not to mention how expensive funerals are." added Doodles with a crossed look.

"Fun!" Naeleen shrieked in delight as she tried to grab Cranky. She then began to dance in circles, "This will be awesome!"

"We won't sleep!" The commander responded, "We must find the bad guys, and that requires working through the night! I've decided, we're staying!"

Gort glared at him for several moments, before finally giving in,

"Fine! Let's spend our night searching for ghosts!"

"You have still neglected to explain how we are to fight the ghosts if we find them." Al pointed-out.

The commander completely ignored Al and began to walk across the street towards another building. The moon lit up the streets enough for them to see, with the clouds occasionally darkening their vision.
The commander pulled out a small dagger from his pocket, and began to pry at the door.

"What are you doing Morry?" Gort asked, still very annoyed.

"Sshhh!" The commander whispered, "I'm investigating!"

"You know..."

"Sshhh! I'm working!"

"Uh, sir... don't think you think breaking into another building will get us into trouble?" Al inquired, scurrying up behind the Commander.

Summer was nervously following people around.

"We're not breaking in, we're investigating!" The commander replied.

"Don't you think we should investigate somewhere besides the middle of the street?" Ooqi asked while trying to keep his distance.

"Or, you could just try to open the door." Gort suggested.

The commander paused for a moment, and tried to open the door. To his surprise, it opened.

"What if it's a trap?" Summer asked.

"I don't think the commander is worried about traps..." Al sighed.

"Let's go!" the commander said as he charged into the building.

"This can't end good..." Ooqi sighed as he reluctantly followed.

Gort also entered the building, and by this time Naeleen was sound asleep.

Al sighed and followed Gort. Summer stayed by the door.

"I think it would be a good idea that Cranky and I will wait out here." suggested Doodles, "To stay off of trouble."

"That's what I would say." agreed Cranky.

So the commander, Al, Gort, and Ooqi entered the building. The floor boards creaked as they crept further in, with the pitch-black darkness being pierced by a single match held by the commander. There were barrels scattered throughout the room, with layers of dust covering them. The commander went up to a random barrel and began to open it, while thoughtlessly tossing the match toward Al.

Al just side-stepped the match, then stomped it out when it reached the floor. Probably throwing the room into darkness again.

"What the...?" the commander started to say. 

A moment passed before Gort lit another match.

"Morry?" he asked, noticing the commander was nowhere to be seen. The barrel which the commander had been trying to open was still sitting there, though the top was now cleaned off, if anyone noticed.

"He appears to be gone..." Al noted, looking around the room a couple times, before randomly looking into the barrel.

If there was enough light in the room to see, Al would notice what seemed to be a ladder leading down through the barrel. The lid which had been removed was also peculiar, with one side being clean and the other quite dusty.

"Maybe he ran outside..." Ooqi offered while edging toward the door.
