beep… beep… beep.
That sound had become as familiar as her own heart beat. More familiar possibly. It was always there, not far away from her bed. Of course it had been worse when she was younger, when she wasn't allowed to move, to get up and stretch her body. When she was a child, if thats what you would have called her, that beeping had been attached to her, a long wire attached to her body that connected to the noisy machine. It was still connected now of course, but it had become wireless, so she was free to move around without disturbing the readings the scientists were getting.
As her pale blue eyes scanned the room Abra noticed something she hadn't expected to see, especially around her. To her amazement, in her own little white room a window had been left open. Such an act was forbidden anywhere near her for fear she would try to leave, and they had such rules for good reason. Seeing the open window, her gateway to freedom, the first thought Abra had was to jump through it, take the chance she was given and take her life back for herself. She looked around her quickly, glancing to make sure she was still alone. Once she was convinced she spread her mottled white and black wings and ran for the window. Within seconds she felt the sweet breeze on her cheeks, the air wiping through he long pale blonde hair. She had done it, she was finally free. Her victory was short lived however.
Abra hadn't thought this plan through. She hadn't really thought about the fact that she wasn't really allowed to fly while she was locked up. To her dismay her muscles weren't strong enough to cary her far. As she watched, the ground came under her, getting closer and closer. She curled her wings in, curling into a ball hoping that would be enough to stop her from greatly hurting herself. She hit the ground and rolled to her side, laying in a crumpled heap before getting herself up and taking off running.
She had no idea where to go. She had never been on the outside before. Around her people gave her strange looks but she didn't pay any attention. Soon she came to a group of buildings, what she assumed were normal homes. She ran up to one and slipped past a fence into a closed off grassy area behind. A window was open. She could hide in there! She knew she must have been followed. She had to hide fast. She jumped through the window and knocked over a vase in the process. Abra laid on the ground, scooted against the wall hoping no one heard her.
