Axel was so happy to hear Candace say, "Axel I feel the same way, even though it's just been a few days, I can't help but like you more and more. Hopefully we can get through this together." Almost instantly the world seemed to melt away at those words. But it didn't last long because a few moments later there was a loud cracking sound. Axel looked over to see Nicholas had been smacked so hard he was on the ground. He watched as she looked so proud of herself, all Axel could thinks is that he wouldn't let anything happen to Candace or Kevin. He heard Ms.Flick say, "Shay, Olivia, and Candace will go to the Box. Kevin, Axel, and Shanae will demonstrate. Now, the three of you get your asses up here and everyone drop for... let's say 100 push ups. I want every single one of them perfect or you'll just keep doing them." Axel stood there thinking 'I am so glad I do pushups alot of this would be impossible for me.'

Before he can walk forward he hears a voice behind him say, "You may continue Monica." So he turns around and sees a man he doesn't seem to know but already doesn't like. The man continued to say with authority "I noticed some of you have lost a little respect...I suggest that changes". Axel just completely feed up with all the crap walks forward and get down to do his push ups. While doing his push ups he says, "One pushup, Ms.Flack....Two pushups, Ms.Flack...Three pushups, Ms.Flack..." He did that the whole time making sure to keep him composure. He just kept the thoughts of how amazing it is that he confessed to Candace. He thought about the kiss, and the fact she had the same feelings for him as well.

Axel distracted with his thoughts did his pushups extremely fast. But all with perfect stance, eventually he heard himself say, "ninety eight pushups, Ms.Flack...ninety nine pushups, Ms.Flack...One hundred pushups, Ms.Flack" He got up extremely tired and saw the others were still doing their pushups he wiped the sweat from his forehead. He made sure that no one was looking besides Candace was looking. Once he made sure of that he lipped the words, "You're amazing". He wanted to say more but knew he wouldn't have much time before Ms.Flack would yell at him to do something else.

Axel went into the room with Destiny to tie up Shayla. Destiny threw rope to him and said, "Well get to it". He looked at her at with an intense evil look and then turned to Shayla. "I'm sorry about this Shayla." Destiny looked at him and said, "Make sure the knots are nice and tight. If I check them and they aren't, you'll regret it." He ignored her and tied a knot tight enough to hold her but not enough to cause her pain. He then stood up and Destiny started to push him out of the room. She then said, "Back to class." But then over the intercom he heard the same man he saw earlier say, "Could Axel please come to the top floor, the room on the right". He looked at Destiny and says, "Well I guess I'm not going back to class. Can you show me how to get to this room he is talking about or do you not have a clue where it is at either?"

He doesn't wait he goes and finds the staircase. He then climbed up the stairs very slowly not to sure of what he might see or have to do. He got to the top and saw the door he needed to go in. He didn't knock or wait he just flung open the door and walked in. He was getting tired of all the crap he had to do so he says, "Well what do you need this time doc..." thats when he saw Shanae laying on the floor looking like she was lifeless.

Axel looks at the man who had pointed his gun at him he said, "Take her body downstairs and put her on her bed in Dorm 1." The man looked at Nick and then turned back around and had said while gesturing with the gun, "I think now would be a good time." So Axel walk over towards Shanae, who looked dead. He bent over and checked her plus it was still there beating alittle fast but still there. So he gently picks her up and put s on his back making sure her arms were around his neck to her stay on his back. With that he gently walked down the stairs he feared for her and Nick. He then thought that that was gonna happen to Candace, Kevin, and everyone else. He decided he might actually rather be killed by the weird machine than have to deal with this place.

He finally got to Shanae's dorm he laid her gently down on the bed and put her blanket over her. He sat there for a moment and watched to make sure she was okay. He then got up and started to head back to the gym. There was not much else that could go wrong he thought to himself. He finally got back to the gym to see everybody jogging and Ms.Flick hitting people with a whip. He looked for Candace and ran up to her and said, "Missed you now stay behind me so you don't get whipped anymore."

Axel sat and watched as the boy shook his head. Before Axel could tell him anything the man with the gun showed up. He said, "I need to see you Jason." Axel watched as Jason was brought away. He could only imagine the things that were gonna happen to him. Then a voice came from behind him, he turned to she Monica talking. "Subjects" Axel say how she stood and thought she looked suspicious. She kept going and said, "You are to report to the gym immediately for a class." Axel got up and started to walk over Candace. He walked with her as they headed to the gym. They sat there for a minute as Monica and Destiny waited in the hall. Finally they came in to the gym.

That's when Monica said something that really shocked him. "I want... Axel to demonstrate this exercise and I want you all to run the length of the gym, dropping at each end, standing, spinning, and running back. 50 times. Anyone who dallys will have to start over." Axel stood there wondering why he had been singled out. This time he had not done anything to provoke them. He then decided it's still better then everyone else doing it and maybe getting hurt. He started off as the first person running and did what Monica had said. He ran dropped down, standing back up and turning back around.

He then reached the end everyone was at, then everybody followed after him. He continued to do that while watching as Destiny and Monica talked. He saw Monica hand the crazy new girl a knife. He reached hearing distance just in time to hear Destiny say, "You don't mind if i bark out a few orders for him do you?" Axel could only imagine what crazy and idiotic things she would have him do. He just wanted to go and free everyone while taking out all the guards, but that would have to wait till he had enough strength and resources for that. He kept running keeping an eye on Destiny and watching Candace run beside and sometimes in front of him.

As Axel got tortured more by Destiny he found it harder and harder to do the exercises. He then had heard the one man announce to Destiny that they needed to go to the Doctor's lab. They were escorted to the lab by Destiny. He went in and say three chairs in the room, and only dreaded what was soon to happen to them all. He looked at Candace and lipped, "I'm sorry I couldn't stop him." The man told Destiny to tie up Kevin and Candace while he strolled over to a cupboard. He said, "Make sure they are tight...my definition of tight means the showing of blood." Axel didn't like that he said that and had his gun still pointed at Candace. The man told Axel to walk towards the wall. Not wanting anyone hurt Axel listened obediently to the man. The man then said, "Put your wrists in the clasps above you now." Axel saw him pointing to the shackles, above his head, with his gun. Axel put his hands up and didn't fight against the man as he put the shackles on him. The man went on to say, "Now that we are all organised we can get started." He moved a bench, that had two iv drips on it with two different colored substances in it, towards Kevin and Candace. He looked at Candace and said, "Destiny, could you find Candace's vein and insert that one? It doesn't matter how long it takes. A few misses won't hurt...too much."

The man laughed and moved the IV drip he had towards Kevin. He watched as the man stabbed the boy several times. The man made Kevin's arm bleed alot of blood till he had finally found a vein. Axel watched the whole time pulling at the chains trying to get out of them he felt them tug at the wall. But it didn't do much besides hurt his wrist and pull the chains out a few centimeters. The man turned towards Axel and said, "Now for Axel." He gave an evil smile towards him. Then continued with, ""It's rather simple really, you take the pill and Candace and Kevin survive for a little longer. You don't and they get shot…" He then insulted Axel by holding the pill right by his lips. Axel pulled at his chains again still not doing much to them. The man said, "Your choice." Axel looked at him and said, "I'll take the pill but tell me one thing. What is your name? I really wanna know the name of the man that has caused so many of the people here pain. That way when I crush you I know what name to put on the grave."

Axel sat in the shackles when the man said, "Well that's nice." Axel could tell the man was making fun of him. The man continued with, "However it doesn't seem like your quite in the place to be making deals." Then he gave Axel a strong blow to the stomach causing him a lot of pain. Axel started to feel less and less full of strength. The man continued talking with, "...but since you asked so nicely. My name is Adrian, and I happen to be in control of this facility, and your life, so a little respect might be due." Then Adrian delivered a blow to Axel's jaw making him weak enough for Adrian to jam the pill in his mouth. Axel swallowed it while Adrian held his mouth closed. Then Axel watched in horror as Adrian went and cut Candace's throat. He watched as the woman he loved started to die in front of him. Then Adrian said, "Tis a shame really. Everyone else seemed to work. Now what to do with that…" he pointed at Kevin "and him" he glanced briefly at Axel.

Axel looked at him and lost hope for a brief second. But thought he would get back at him. Then he had a strong burning sensation flowing throughout his body. It seemed almost impossible to endure it he felt his muscles start to form a bit bigger gaining muscle build. He then started to blackout from the pain but could hear Adrian on the phone with someone. Also talking to someone at the door then Axel heard nothing they must of left. He could no longer stand the pain and fell unconscious the chains seemed to barley want to hold him up. But before he fell unconscious Axel noticed he didn't feel the pain of his jaw or stomach anymore. The only thing he knew was that only time will tell what will happen to him.

Axel feels himself get pulled back into his dorm room by Shayla. She yelled, "God you idiot. You're going to get Shanae killed." Axel looked at her surprised she was as strong as she was. He then paused and thought for a moment to himself while she talked to the new girl. Then Destiny came and took the two new girls. He could only imagine the pain they were gonna be in. He then heard Destiny tell the new guy to go with. He hoped they would be alright. He then looked at Shayla and said, "I need to tell Shanae about what happened to me. I think I have finally found something that can help us out of here. I'm going to talk to her no matter what, this is to help all of us." He looked at her but she seemed upset at him. At this point Axel didn't care and walked towards the door. This time he was ready for if she tried anything with him. He walked out the door back to Shanae and looked in the door. This time he saw her and said, "Shanae come here I have something really important I need to talk to you about. It's about me and a recent trip to the doctor. I think if I'm right I could really help you and the others." He watched as she walked towards him and got near the door. He whispered to her, "I visited to the doctor and took some special pill. After I woke up I had more muscle than before and I'm much stronger. There might be something else but I don't know yet. Is there anyway I can help you? Maybe break down the door, or when we do go to escape fight off Adrian and whoever else." He sat there waiting for a response from her. He could tell that she was really shocked at the new development. Whether it was good or bad he wasn't sure of.

Shanae looked at Axel and had said, "Everyone else has been to the doctor too, you just missed us all discovering our "gifts"." Then Shay came running by and had said, "Axel, I need you to cover for me if someone shows up. Say one of the staff members took me to the bathroom or that I went with to Destiny's class. Something good. I'll be right back." Shanae looked at Axel again and said, "I am not sure there is much you can do...obviously you give us a bit better chance, using your strength now would probably just cause troubel." she bit her lip. "I know you want to help, but they still have guns and weapons, far more then what we have. If you let me out now, I'll just be punished. Wait for now. Daniel, the one of the new ones, has some sort of plan I think...once we have him back we can organize something…" Foot steps could be heard coming from down the hall. Then a familiar voice followed the footsteps the voice said, "What the hell do you think you're doing?!" Axel looked over to see Monica as she slapped in him in the face. Axel was shocked at the fact he couldn't even feel a single drop of pain. She had asked, "Where the hell is Shay?!"

Axel looked at her still surpirsed he wasn't feeling anything then she grabbed Shanae by the wrist. She said to her, "Tell me now, and it better be good or so-help-me-god I'll kill her myself when I find her." Then Monica pushed Jason into the dorm where Shayla and Axel stayed in. She then tapped her foot at Axel and Shanae tapping her foot and asked, "Well?!" Shanae looked at Axel and gave him a signal to stay quite for the time being. She then told Monica, "Destiny sent her to Adrian for coming out again" Monica stared at Shanae while thinking her answer through, she then out a finger on Shanae's chin and made her look up at her in the eyes. She the told Shanae, "Too bad Adrian's busy. And Destiny knows it. So where is she really at?" Monica sat there for a second thinking and then went on with, "Axel, get back in your dorm. I'm going to wait out here for Miss Bones to return. If either of you come out of your rooms again, I wont hesitate to punish you and report to Adrian." He sat in there for a bit with Jason and wondered if there was anything he could do to help.

A few minutes later Shayla came running into the room and helped Jason with his arm. She then said, "Adrian's a bitch huh?" She then sat right next to him on the bed and then Adrian came near the dorms. He talked to Monica loud enough where he heard him say, "Miss Flack I will deal with the offender after we have re-instated our authority. Once Jason's dealt with, you can do whatever you like to whoever has decided to cross your path. As for now, simply give them a couple of blows and lead everyone left in Dorm two to the gym. Jason is to walk without help." Axel was left to be the only person in the dorms. He sat there for what felt like hours to him and nobody came back he truly feared for what might of happened to everyone. Finally he passed out on his bed in a sitting up position waiting for everyone to get back.

Shanae Vena
Shanae had heard the door burst open from her corner of the room. Monica's rough voice echoed across the room before the door slammed shut. Shanae's hands clenched tighter in a desperate attempt to somehow make up for the thoughts that flew through her mind. She didn't want to think about what was to be done to Nick. She knew he had been the one to be taken, as the contact they had became a little more distant, though if she really tried she could contact him. She didn't. She emotionally couldn't talk to anyone at the moment.
Shanae heard the grating of a chair across the room to near her bed. She didn't react, only to try and stop the crying. There was no point. She was most likely going to go through worse than this, and if she cried every time, she was probably going to give Adrian a ball. She felt someone gently touch her shoulder, and though she didn't move, a quick probe into his mind told her it was Daniel. For some reason this comforted her slightly. Her previous misgivings about communicating with anyone disintegrated. She lay there for a few minutes before mustering the strength to send him a message.
<Daniel?...What are we supposed to do?>
Her tears threatened to fall again as she sent it. She prayed Adrian would never separate her from anyone, as being unable to touch a person, she would be powerless to communicate. She feared for the rest of them. Too many people had died, and each had been witnessed. Her broken emotions felt like they were going to choke her as she forced them down.
Suddenly the door smashed open again.


Adrian Carlos
Adrian watched as Monica delegated the tasks between herself and Destiny.
He was content with the decision, however he had thought the process through and decided he didn't need so many people. Erin seemed stronger then Emily, so he could do without the latter.
"Destiny? Before you go, could you please get Emily to clean up while you take the class? Once she's done, kill her. I don't need her"
She hadn't been recorded down yet or changed, so he could do what he liked without having to pay. And now there was Daniel…
Adrian strode down the hallway before entering Dorm one. Nick was missing so obviously Monica had already begun. Contemplating this Adrian realised he was going to have to use another room for his lesson. He could always use that room set aside near his own….He had been thinking about using it for a while, perhaps he'd use it for Shanae. She now had a use and he needed to know where she was at all times in order to use it. He could do that as he took Daniel up.
His eyes roamed around the room before meeting Daniels. His face hardened as her saw his position near Shanae's bed.
"Daniel. I think we need to talk about your little comment in the gym, don't you?" His voice was hard and emotionless.
At the sound of his voice, Shanae started, twisting her head around before sitting bolt upright on the bed. She cringed against the wall, before her eyes hardened and she stiffened, giving him a harsh, cold look full of hatred.
He gave her a hardened glance of his own before turning back to Daniel.
"I suggest you get up and move" He hissed, before glancing back at Shanae's white, blood deprived face "And make sure she gets there"
He turned to walk out of the room before spinning back around. "And Shanae? No protest?." He gave her a mocking smile "I like you better silent"
Her hard expression crumpled as despair washed over her features "...and that is also a better look for you"
Adrian swept out of the room leading them both upstairs. He passed the door to his own room before turning into another just passed it, opposite the experimental chamber. Unlocking it from a row of keys, he swung open the steel door. The door had a small slit just big enough for a small hand to slip through, with a slide to block and open it as pleased by whoever remained outside. Inside was cold and dark, a single dim bulb illuminated the room in a dark, shadowy light. Against the blackened stone wall was a row of long chains, each containing a small clasp at the bottom.
Catching Shanae looking at them, Adrian decided to inform her of their use.
"Those are for the people I have already figured out their use. Though I must say I need to make sure I know absolutely everything…"
Shanae whitened even further, though she was forced to stay silent.
Across the right wall was a wooden rack, as soon as Shanae noticed it, Adrian took hold of a handful of her hair and wrenched it backwards, jamming the nozzle of his gun under her throat.
"Get on" Adrian instructed Daniel, purposefully clicking the loading device into place. He followed Daniels every move with his eyes, cold and dark until Daniel was lying on top of the torture device. Shoving Shanae aside he deftly strapped down Daniels limbs.
Then he left, locking the door behind himself. They could wait, he needed to make sure the experimental chamber was ready for after.
As soon as he left, Shanae moved over to Daniels side, falling to her knees beside the rack. She grabbed his hand gently squeezing it.
<Why?>
Her whole body was shaking as tremors of fear ran through it. Adrian, as far as she knew had never used the rack before. Why now? The tears she had so desperately held in tumbled down her face as the dismal thoughts of the future swung into her mind.
<Don't make anything worse, don't say anything> she pleaded with him, her thoughts tumbling into his own mind <You've got to live…>
She squeezed his hand tighter. Both hands were strapped above his head, the handle waiting to be turned. She put her head against the unforgiving wood as her head span under both blood loss and fear. Why was she here? She had no need to be here. She couldn't watch him, and yet Adrian would make sure she would at the very least hear everything. And now there was nothing to do but wait.

Adrian Carlos
Adrian swiftly entered the experimental chamber to quickly go over the Doctor's latest apparatus. The rectangular, bullet-proof glass box was perfect. At the top a few transparent tubes led to a small box to the left. Opening the box to peer into it's content, Adrian was satisfied. There was a small amount of wood, with matches set aside for later use. A top the wood was two strange, gleaming beads. Both were fiery red in colour, and partially transparent, seeming to contain a sort of golden liquid. Both had been carefully placed on the wood, directly beneath the two tubes connecting the small box to the glass case. Adrian briefly checked the security of the connections between the glass case and the tubes, before re-reading the instructions the "doctor" had left for him. The page was filled with scrawled writing giving great detail of the use of the box and it's contents. Adrian rolled his eyes. It wasn't rocket Science. Through all the scientific rubbish, Adrian had managed to glean the main object: Light the wood to ignite the beads, to release the gas that had taken him so long to acquire. Once there it could travel through the tubes to filter into the glass case.
Underneath these complex instructions was a few pages of security and health hazards, that Adrian decidedly ignored. It didn't bother him. He wasn't the one that was to be risked.
After double checking everything, he decided he would continue his fun, before working. Daniel would provide the fun he needed.


Shanae Vena
Shanae's hand shook as Daniel nodded. She had to get out, yet that was currently not an option. She couldn't save Daniel as she saved Jason. This was Adrian's excitement, and even her energy was not worth that.
<Shanae, if something happens-->
The door to the cell smashed open as Adrian came into the room. She immediately withdrew her hand. To anger Adrian was to hurt Daniel further and not something she wished to do. Contrary to her thoughts, Adrian seemed somewhat pleased about something, and as he looked up his harsh features warped into a hard smile.
"Well that's a first Shanae. Didn't even cry when I beat you. Seems I broke you a little too well?"
Shanae didn't even have the energy to give him a look, instead fixing her gaze on the floor. That was as much attention she got from him, he turned from her and walked up to Daniel. She wasn't going to be the one stuck with his gaze tonight.
Adrian stared down at Daniel, his cold, ice blue eyes unblinking as he enjoyed the SEAL's helplessness.
"So Daniel...tempted to kill me. Well, try doing that after this." his eyes lit up in savage joy as he wrenched the handle in a full turn, immediately pulling both ropes taunt and applying the pressure on Daniels limbs. He clicked the handle into place, ensuring he no longer needed to hold it there as he talked with his victim.
As his feet Shanae moaned, curling up in a ball desperately trying to block out the sounds and images the room bought forth as well as Adrian's cold mocking voice.
"Do you know how long it took me to get this?...Of course the government said it was inhumane and that it may not be used as well as it could be, well we'll see what they think after" He immediately gripped the handle and with dark laugh jerked it around a little more, before clicking it a little further into place.
Almost straight after, he felt someone grip his ankle and Shanae sent a forceful thought straight into his head.
<Don't kill him...I'll give you all my energy and do anthin-> He brought his heel down on her hand, glaring at her interruption.
"The reason I cut out your tongue in the first place was so you would shut up"
He turned away from her allowing her to cradle her injured hand. She had known it was futile, yet something made her try, she could not do nothing, though it appeared it would make no difference.
"A SEAL eh? You'd think you'd learn a little more self control then insult the man that could, and will take your life."
He forced the handle even further, jamming it into yet another notch.
"You didn't even need to get on here. What a waste. You know I'm going to kill Shanae anyway, a bullet would have been a nicer way to go then the way I'm planning" He gave Daniel a mocking smile, before grabbing the handle and wrenching the handle as hard as he could, straining the ropes to their limit.
He would have to slow down soon. He couldn't afford to impair Daniel, as much as he would like to. In his excitement he may even have gone too far already, however in his adrenaline filled state Adrian did not particularly care, yet the more ambitious side, the one that needed the box stopped him. No need to release Daniel, but let him hang there, pushing him neither further, nor giving any relief.
He pulled his knife out of his belt and held it just under his chin.
"At the moment, the chance of either of us killing the other would go to me"
Shanae lay curled up near the torturous device. Her hands covered her face in an attempt to stop the continuous sobs racking her body. In desperate need of help, knowing that no one could do anything, Shanae pulled together her remaining strength to contact Nick. As soon as she found his mind she contacted him.
<Nick, Adrian's killing him!> Unable to control her emotions, they flew between their thin connection point, straight towards Nick. Not wanting to let him feel her state, she immediately broke contact and retreated into her own mind. In her current state she did not think of the fact that Nick would have no idea who "he" was nor would it help in any way, yet in a wave of desperate need Shanae had to contact someone and the only one on hand was Nick. In a sudden rush, the realisation that Nick to was being torture, Shanae broke down, if she had not already. Every single one of them was in trouble, and there was nothing she could do to prevent it.

Shanae Vena
Shanae let out a soft groan as Daniel didn't respond. She hadn't expected him to, though she had hoped...She stroked his head gently, trying to calm him and also herself a little.
<You're going to live, you have to> She was shaking badly, yet she tried to stay standing in order to keep an eye on Daniel. He had to live.
A wave of dizzyness over took her, and she found herself once again leaning her head on the rough, harsh wood of the rack. She was forced to sink to a sitting position as the room tipped dangerously. She closed her eyes, desperately trying to imagine herself away from the horrors of the room, yet the intense stabs of pain from her back held back her concentration. She gave up, and allowed herself to sink into a half conscious state where everything numbed slightly. Her mouth was less of a problem now, wounds in it seemed to heal faster then elsewhere. She lay there for around a quarter of an hour in a strange dreamlike state, before the sound of a door grating along the floor jerked her from her dream. Her mouth gaped in wordless terror as Adrian made his way closer Daniel. She tensed up, immediately wishing she hadn't, yet pushed the thought aside as Adrian lifted his fist strike her. She felt the glance of the side of her head as her vision went black and then strange pricks of light brought it back again. Her head pounded with the force of the blow as she looked up at Adrian's cold, calm features.
"I did tell you that you shouldn't dawdle." he said calmly, before turning his murderous gaze towards Daniel's motionless figure. Adrian made a move to drag Daniel off the rack, before Shanae grabbed his arm and using every inch of her strength hauled it back.
<He is not ready> she drove the thought as hard as she could into Adrian's head. Adrian recoiled as if in shock, before forbidding anger filled his eyes. He grabbed Shanae by her shoulders, driving her back first into the wall. She let out a scream as her back slammed into it, driving each one of her nerves crazy. Her head fell forward, as she collapsed to the floor, desperately trying to draw in a breath.


Adrian Carlos
Adrian was beyond angry now. Shanae had dared defy him twice. He was barely restraining himself from killing her on the spot. His clenched fists shook with a mixture of anger and restraint as crouched down near Shanae's head.
"I have had enough of you interrupting me. Once you have healed somewhat, I am going to get Monica or Destiny to have you straight in the box. And this I promise to you. As soon as I have found this thing I am looking for, and it is sent to the governement. I promise you, with my own hands I will kill you. I will not let you die with hands of the box. Oh it will be slow Shanae, I can promise you that. And before your own death you will watch Shayla and Daniel die. You have my word" His words were so intensely filled with hatred and rage, Shanae backed up hitting her head on the wall. Adrian grabbed her white neck with one of his hands, smashing her head into the bricks with force.
"Do you hear me Shanae?"
Blood trickled out of her mouch, and her eyes started to glaze over, though they focused and unfocused continuously as she tried to stay conscious. He didn't get a reply, and the anger leapt forth into his eyes.
"You haven't helped Daniel one bit"
He strode over to Daniel and grabbing both his shoulders threw him to the floor, kicking him hard in the ribs.
"You will watch hi-" Adrian's voice broke off as he spotted Shanae's limp form. She was no longer conscious, her stick like figure slumped against the stone wall.

Axel looked up ant Destiny and she said, "If only Adrian could see you now." She kicked him in the shoulder but he didn't feel it or even flinch. After she did that she bent down and picked up the whip while saying, "Fine. I'll deal out her punishment then. I want you running laps around the gym with Jason, at the end of each lap you will both give me thirty sit ups, and push ups. For each one you do incorectly I'll hurt her. and every three minutes it takes you I will hurt her." She then whipped Erin three more times and yelled, "Go." Axel took off running in his first lap and easily caught up to Jason, who in his opinion wasn't looking too good. He looked at Jason and said, "I'm sorry man I didn't mean for this to happen. I hope you'll both be alright." Axel noticed Jason was breathing short small breaths and then not too long after Jason fell to the ground. Jason coughed and tried to push himself up but was either in too much pain or too weak. So Axel afraid if he stopped to help him would cause more problems kept going. Making sure to do perfect push-ups and sit-ups. He then got up and took off running again full speed this time.

"She'll do what you want. I'll get to the chamber."
Adrian smiled.
"I know" he said as though there was no possibility of defiance. "Your not doing me any favours, don't fool yourself. You would have ended up there whether you like it or not."
He was a little irked that Daniel hadn't shouted or really shown much pain as he dragged him off the rack, but that was trifling for what was to come. Beside, from the look of it, Daniel would take a while to get the chamber whether he liked it or not. The smile slowly faded as he thought of this, but he would not resort to dragging him there, not yet. He didn't want to waste the energy, he wanted to enjoy it after all.
He glanced over at Shanae slumped near the wall. She wasn't waking up anytime soon. He was honestly just wanting to get on with it to find it. It would be difficult to find, hence why he needed Nick, but Adrian had suspicions it would be no easier to get once it's location was known, hence the other mutations. Adrian laughed silently to himself. He liked that word. That was what they were after all, not even human anymore.
He walked over to Shanae, as he waited for Daniel to get to the chamber, staring down at his handiwork. She was a mess alright. So was Daniel, actually. That aroused his humour again. Shanae was silent as a shadow now, thank goodness. She irritated him with her pitiful objections. Now that she would remain silent, he could use her more easily as a kind of servant. Yes, that pleased him. She would be his silent shadow, doing what he bid without objection or will. Then again, she showed her defiance in her eyes...no removing them would make her useless, better to ignore them and enjoy the frustration lit within.
He glanced over his shoulder back at Daniel.
"I should move fast if I were you. I am not a patient person" he smiled revealing his straight white teeth.

Adrian waited for a while after Daniel left before picking up Shanae's limp form. He needed a lever to convince Daniel to get in the glass cabinet, Shanae would be that lever. He frowned as her eyes flickered open, she was more of a pain when she was awake, then again now he wouldn't have to carry her. He shoved her forward watching her stumble, before managing to right herself against the door frame. The wounds that had re-opened on her back started to seep blood through the bandage. She leaned, white and pale against the door frame her weak stance proving to Adrian that he would need to give her some incentive to move.
"Get moving. Someone ought to watch Daniel passing."
Her face showed it's fear and sorrow as she silently tried to move down the hall, using the walls to support herself. Adrian followed close behind, his hand resting on his loaded gun. She stopped halfway down the hall, and Adrian gave up trying to move her, and gabbed both her shoulders, steering her the rest of the way.
"Once Daniel is no longer a distraction, you will go back to serving me, as a silent shadow"
Her weak body stiffened slightly, yet no soundless words came into his head, and Adrian allowed himself another smile at he thought that he had finally broken her.
The finally turned the corner and as he entered the chamber, Adrian spotted Daniel. He shoved Shanae away from himself before pulling out his pistol.


Shanae Vena

Shanae stumbled forward and spotting Daniel clasped one of his hands with both of hers.
<Don't do anything he says, not even if…>
The tip of Adrian's gun pushed into the back of her neck.
"Matlock" Adrian said in an almost bored tone "I suggest you remove Miss Vena's hands and get into the glass case"
Shanae tightened her grip on his hand, thinking fast.
<Please. You mustn't move. It's better for me to die now then later when Adrian has time to do the job properly.> Her pleas were desperate, she couldn't watch Daniel follow so many of the others… <You have to listen. He's going to kill me anyway, don't let him do the same to you. Please"
She felt Adrian grab her shoulder and wrench her backwards, forcing her to release Daniel's hand. Adrian's hard fingers dug into her shoulder as a soft metallic click echoed in the room.
Shanae attempted to struggle forward, but Adrian only tightened his grip on her and pushed the barrel of the gun to her neck.
"Daniel. I am warning you once. Get in the box" Adrian's voice was harder now. Shanae glanced over as the bullet proof glass case in the centre of the room. The tubes confirmed her suspicions that this was another experiment, and seeing as this was the first she'd heard of it, an untested one. The thought scared her, all the experiments that were untested resulted in death. She looked at Daniel, her face white. Her hands shook badly, and her throat ached as she desperately wanted to beg Daniel to stay. Tears filled her eyes, as her vulnerability got to her, and she realised that there was nothing more to do to try and convince Daniel. She couldn't even cry out.
She had had enough of watching other people die, she would rather be dead than continue to live here and watch Daniel…
Don't. She mouthed, pleading and begging him with her eyes. Just Don't.

Adrian nodded, satisfied as Daniel moved into the case. It seemed Shanae was a good lever. He shoved her aside, having no further use for her until Daniel was dealt with. He swiftly shut the door, satisfied as there was a soft click as the locking mechanism snapped into place. He then slid his hand up and down the sides of the case, double checking that it was seal proof. The door only opened from the outside, insuring Daniel would stay put even once the fire was lit.
He moved over to the box that was connected to the case by the plastic tubes. The small luminous beads glowed slightly atop the wood. Finally he could use it.
He took out the box of matches, and after striking one on the side of the box, carefully placed it under the wood. The flames licked at the wood hungrily, soon consuming it before moving onto the beads. Adrian quickly shut the case in order to keep it's possibly deadly contents inside. Suddenly there was a loud popping sound as one of the beads broke open. A kind of red haze rose above it and began to travel up the tubes. There was a sharp hiss of gas escaping as the red haze finally reached the glass case. The haze was not smoky, but a sort of clear gas with the slightest hint of red. Adrian turned his gaze towards Daniel, waiting expectantly for his new experiment to take effect.


Shanae Vena

Shanae felt herself shoved aside, and was unable to regain her balance. She fell to the floor, taking in a sharp breath at the pain. She ignored it however as she looked up at Daniel through the glass. She made her way to the glass case, a sob escaping her throat. Her fingers fumbled down the sides of the door, desperately looking for a latch. Her fingers only met a cold, smooth surface. She continued to push her fingers around the corner of the glass, until they found a small hole. Looking up she saw a tiny keyhole. She looked up at Daniel, sudden realisation on her face. There was nothing she could do. The terror was etched into her bright green eyes.
She pressed her palms against the glass, wanting so desperately to let him out, but knowing Adrian had already removed the key. The sudden popping of the beads made her jump, and her eyes widened as she watched the red gas seep into the glass container; straight to Daniel.
Her tears fell thick and fast as she slammed her fist into the glass, before sliding down it. Why? She mouthed through her tears. Why? She brushed away the tears coating her face, before placing her hand back on the glass. She would give anything to be able to just talk with him one more time…
Adrian's cruel gaze was directed at Daniel and Shanae found herself shaking in a mixture of anger and fear. For a split second she drew his gaze, and she cringed as he gave her a satisfied smile. His dark blue eyes cut into her own, and the smug expression and savage joy that was in them made her freeze, then he returned his gaze to Daniel. Shanae followed suit.
Daniel's familiar face looked down at her and her heart ached for him. His own green eyes met her tear-filled ones and a fresh stab of sorrow broke her down. She looked up at him through blurry eyes, praying that somehow he'd make it; knowing that it was too late.

Monica Flack


"Give her a break. If you do... I might help." Finally, he looked utterly defeated. Monica grinned. "Let me get her bandages and food. Please." Nick begged, looking up at her. With a sigh, Monica sucked in her cheeks, mulling over his offer. She'd defeated him, but still he was only giving her a maybe? No. Not good enough. "No." She hissed, stepping forward. "I'll unlock you, and you can fix her up. I'll even give you a minute alone with her." She smiled as if she was doing him a favor. "But I'm telling Adrian that you agreed." She grabbed his face and yanked it towards her. "Do you hear me boy?" She pointed at Shayla. "You disappoint me, and I kill your girlfriend. Don't think I wont follow through on that." She grinned wickedly and pushed his head back violently against the wall, turning back to Shay. She knelt beside the girl and grabbed hold of her bloody blonde hair, yanking her head back to look up at her. "You're pathetic." She hissed angrily. "The sooner you realize that I always win, the better off you'll be." She glanced at Nick. "The two of you are just downright stupid. Maybe if you were smarter, you would have hid your feelings better." She laughed wickedly before dropping Shay's head with a heavy thump against the pole and straightening up. "I'll be right back with your shit Nick." She hissed and coiled up the whip, tossing it back on it's hook before marching out of the room.

Monica moved down the hall with an evil smirk on her face, reaching the med-room in less than a minute with her powerful stride. When she was inside, she grabbed a first-aid kit and some rags and a water bottle. Then she grabbed a mop, a small bit of food, and a clean black t-shirt before heading back to the Box. When she came back in, she had to let her eyes re-adjust to the blackness of the room before she could do anything. "Back. Miss me?" She smirked and dropped the pile of things to the ground, still holding the mop. She crossed to Nick and unlocked him, shoving the mop in his hands violently. "Clean up while you're at it. The place is a mess."

And with that, she spun on her heel and left the room, slamming the door hard behind her and locking it so that they couldn't get out. She'd come back and get them in a while. Right now she had to tell Adrian that she'd been a success. First, she went to his room, but he wasn't there. She heard movement out in the hallway though, she she stepped out to investigate, finding him dragging little Erin along by the wrist. "Adrian." She could tell he was in a hurry, so instead of stopping, she kept pace with him, walking briskly by his side and speaking fast. "Nick was a success. I used Shay, and he's agreed to find your object. Shay's still alive. He's down there cleaning the room right now. Anything else you'd like me to do?" He glanced at Erin as he hauled her along. She was the last one he needed to change evidently. Silently, she wondered why he was in such a hurry. She knew most everything that went on in the facility, but still... There were things Adrian hadn't even told her...

Shayla Bones


Shay heard Monica's low growl of a voice speak once more to Nick. That's all it was though. A low rumbling. Her hearing was still fuzzy. Then there was a pain at her scalp as Monica yanked her head up by her hair and Shay hissed, looking up into the woman's stone-grey eyes. Silently, she listened to her rant about how stupid they were. "Fuck you." She choked, and as a reward, Monica slammed her head against the whipping post. Great. Her head started pounding and she coughed up more blood as her hearing went out again.

A loud slam shook her and it took her a moment to realize that Monica had left. Though it wasn't long before she returned again, and once more, she heard the low rumbling of her voice. Words jumped in here and there. "Agreed... Adrian... Dissapoint... Kill her..." Then, another loud slam and Monica was gone again. What? Nick had agreed to listen to Adrian because of her? A deep guilty feeling ran through the pit of her stomach and she coughed up more blood again, forcing herself to her knees. Well... At least she wasn't dead. "Thank you." She choked, kneeling in front of the post, her hands still roped tightly to it. "You didn't have to do that you know." Her voice came out in a barely audible rasp, and she winced at how bad she sounded. Her body was working to heal her, but it was taking longer than the first time, and it couldn't replenish the energy she'd had. No. Only sleep would do that. Sadly, she hadn't had a good nights sleep in four years.

She lifted her head to look at Nick, and her vision started spinning, but she kept it up. He was unlocked now and had a mop in his hand. Medical supplies lay next to her on the floor. Glancing around she saw how much blood was around her and winced before looking back at Nick again and taking in the bruise and cut on his face, bleeding openly. "Your cheek.." She trailed off, watching him.

Jason Conelly

Jason vaguely heard Axel from somewhere in the gym urging him to keep going, that he was doing better than almost anyone else would. He almost felt good for himself but pushed those thoughts away, or rather it felt like they were burned away. He was too exhausted and too tired to do much else. He was ready to collapse where he was and just let himself fall into unconsciousness when Adrian burst through the door. He paused where he was, legs shaking and vision slightly blurry, he looked over at Adrian, he was barking out orders again and they were supposed to be going somewhere. Adrian stalked forward and grabbed Erin, dragging her out of the room. Destiny yelled at him and Axel to get moving, but Jason didn’t know if he could even get his legs moving again. He had stopped them, and now he knew that moving them again would make them feel almost like jello. But he forced them to move, one step at a time, he almost made it to the door before he started seeing spots in his vision. The room tipped and swirled around him, his hand reached out to catch the door and missed, instead his shoulder slammed into it. He winced slightly as he fell against the door then splayed his hands on the rough surface to steady himself.

"Wh. What's going on?"
Adrian ignored the girls question and continued to drag her into the chamber.
"Adrian" He turned and sure Monica coming up beside him.
"Nick was a success. I used Shay, and he's agreed to find your object. Shay's still alive. He's down there cleaning the room right now. Anything else you'd like me to do?"
Adrian couldn't help but feel a strong sense of pride and satisfaction. Finally he might actually get there. Then he frowned. The stupid institute would interrupt him.
"Good. I need you to take Erin up and use the needle with the clear liquid on her. After you've finished that, get Daniel to the room on the right, use Shanae if he won't. I need everyone there in less then an hour. The Science Institution rang up, and insisted that the government needs our experiments to be tested. We're to take them to there, though I've made sure we'll get full rights of them. I am just going to have a quick chat to Nick, and then we'll get them all moving"
"Shanae"
The word came from the chamber, and Adrian couldn't help but roll his eyes. Daniel wasn't particularly subtle.
"That would be Daniel. At least he's awake now. Both he and Shanae have something going on, so they need to be watched. If they team up with Nick and Shayla we might have some trouble"
He didn't wait, but briskly walked back down the hall, leaving Erin to Monica's mercy.
When he finally reached the box, he through the door open to find both Nick and Shayla covered in blood.
"The colour suits you" Adrian said rather smugly "I here your ready to find what I am looking for. Good. You'll do it once we've moved you. After your finished here, which I can assure you will be quick" he gave them a pointed look before continuing "You are both to go the room to the right of my own"

Axel kept jogging when all of a sudden Adrian came bursting through the doors.He yelled , "I need them all upstairs in the room to the right of my own. All against the wall like Shanae. I'll take Erin, but I need Jason and Axel there now" He looked around and said, "You are going to do exactly what I say, or so help me I will kill you all. I don't have time to mess with rebels today" He was so angry the he had spit through his gritted teeth. Axel was happy to see him pissed he deserved it. Adrian took Erin away right when he did she said, "Wh. What's going on?" And they left with that, Destiny turned toward Axel and Jason. Destiny barked, "Alright you heard him. Get moving!" She lashed out the whip and hit Axel in the neck, he rubbed it a bit and looked at her. "Hey that stung a bit knock it off." She looked at them and said, [b]"If you have to, then carry Jason. Get any ideas and I'll kill him." She sat patiently at the door for them to leave. Axel watched as Jason started moving slowly towards the door. Axel was unsure if he would be able to make it all the way to the room. Sure enough Jason tripped and went to catch himself to no prevail. He missed the doorway with his hand and slammed his shoulder against it.

Jason fell down a bit on the door but started to pull himself up. Axel was not one to try and destroy another man's masculinity but felt so bad for Jason. "Hey man here I'll give you alittle break. It will make you feel alot better I'm sure." He offered his hand out to Jason and he gladly took it. Axel grabbed his hand helped him up and then said, "Alright Jason put your arms over my shoulder and I'll walk there for the two of us. And dont try to resist some of us need help every now and then, I'm sure you'll help me one of these times." So Jason put his arms over Axel's shoulders and Axel picked him up giving him a piggy back-ride, he propped Jason so he wouldn't have to hold on. He slowly walked so he wouldn't cause too much pain to Jason. He looked back at Destiny and said, "Well I'll be off hun I hope to see you again very soon." He walked slowly towards the stairs and couldn't tell if he was causing Jason too much pain. "Only alittle further and we will be there. Then we can relax as much as we need too."

He carefully took a few steps making sure he wouldn't lose his balance. He finally made it up to the top. He felt completed but for some reason Axel felt really hungry. He couldn't place his finger on it but his hunger seemed to of slowly gotten worse throughout the day. He finally made it to the room, and he found Shane up against the wall already. He looked at her and felt like something was completely wrong with her. "Are you okay?" He asked as he slowly walked over to the wall, so he could let Jason down so he could lean up against the wall. "And Jason are you feeling any better?" Axel looked at Jason with a look of concern he could understand how he felt. But he also waited to see what Shane had to say about herself.

"Good. I need you to take Erin up and use the needle with the clear liquid on her. After you've finished that, get Daniel to the room on the right, use Shanae if he won't. I need everyone there in less then an hour. The Science Institution rang up, and insisted that the government needs our experiments to be tested. We're to take them to there, though I've made sure we'll get full rights of them. I am just going to have a quick chat to Nick, and then we'll get them all moving" Monica nodded, taking in Adrian's orders quickly. She heard a soft mumble from the room and Adrian explained that it was Daniel and how him and Shanae seemed to have something. At this, Monica couldn't help, but raise her eyebrows. First Nick and Shayla, now Shanae and Daniel. Though, as it could be a problem for them, it could also be a great asset. At least it would be fairly easy to get any of the four to follow orders from here on out. Especially considering that the group happened to be the most rebellious of all the subjects.

When Adrian had left, he left Erin with her, and Monica sighed, grabbing onto the girls arm with an almost bruising grip. "Alright, you heard what he said. Give me any trouble and I'll kill you." She hissed and dragged her into the room with all of Adrian's experimental equipment in it. Daniel was still in the chamber, half awake, but she would get to him in a moment. First, Monica sat Erin down in a chair and strapped her feet to its legs before pulling over a small table, that she set before the girl. "Nervous?" Monica grinned wickedly and grabbed Erin's arm, holding it down on the table and turning it, wrist up. "Make a tight fist." She told the girl and slapped her wrist. When the vein showed up, Monica smiled and took the needle with the clear liquid, pressing its tip into the girls skin slowly. Once the needle was in, she forced the liquid into her victims blood before pulling the needle out of her skin again and replacing it with a soft cotton pad and bandage.

What would the injection do? She wondered, tossing the needle away and leaning back on one hip to watch Erin out of the corner of her eye. She wanted to see her reaction, but she had other orders to attend to. So instead, she crossed the room to the chamber Daniel was in and pulled him out, urging him to walk. She didn't shove him or push him, since she figured he was weak from whatever Adrian had done so she just gave him a slight nudge on the shoulder to make him move. "Come on Daniel. Walk." And she lead him from the room and down the hall to Adrian's room, stopping at the door on the right for a second to open it before pushing the boy in and closing the door again.

Monica sighed and ran her fingers through her dark hair, glancing down the hall. Now that Erin was changed, what was Adrian's bigger plan? How long until she was out of a job? She wondered to herself silently before heading back to the experiment room to check on Erin.

OOC: Ew. I'm sorry about how terrible this post is, but I'm not feelin' it tonight, next one will be better. Promise.

Shanae Vena

The door to the cell was thrown open, making Shanae jump. Her head swung around to see the reason for the disturbance as Axel carried Jason and placed him gently down against the wall. Jason looked awful. There were jagged whip marks all down his back, and the blood loss was obviously getting to him. She knew exactly how he felt. Desperate to keep her memories at bay she managed to crawl over to them. Even so she found herself close to losing it again as she forced back tears, instead focusing on how she could help Jason. There was nothing she could do about Daniel. Adrian was right in a sense, he killed everyone and it wasn't as though she'd be immune to it for much longer. She saw Axel give her a searching look.
"Are you okay?" his voice broke the silence "And Jason are you feeling any better?"
She stiffened at the question, struggling to keep her emotions in check before placing a hand on both Axels and Jason's hands.
<Daniel's gone. I don't want to talk about it> she turned her face away trying to control herself. She withdrew her hands to make sure the emotions didn't slip through the thin mental bond, though she had a feeling it was a little late. Finally she took in a shuddering breath before turning back to the task at hand.
Mustering energy to conceal her feelings, Shanae took back Jason's hand.
<It might be wise to remove the back of your shirt to stop it getting infected>
The cloth was sticking to the wounds, and if the blood clotted around it there could be serious problems. She kept her face a hard mask, though her eyes couldn't hide how she truly felt. She tried to shove her thoughts to the back of her mind as she'd done with so many others, but Daniels face kept coming to the front. If she hadn't been so stupid and allowed Adrian to use her it wouldn't have happened. She knew he was going to do it. She just knew he'd use her, why hadn't she managed to change it? The memory of Daniel stepping into the glass made her freeze. He shouldn't have done it. She would rather be dead then live any longer.
Suddenly her mask cracked, and her hands started to shake. She quickly took back her hand from Jason, before curling her knees up to her chest. She buried her face in her hands trying to stop the memories. The door smashed open and shut, she didn't bother looking up it didn't matter.
"Shanae, we need to--"
Her head snapped up in time to see Daniel fall to his knees. She opened her mouth in a silent cry as the shock carved itself on her face. A strange mixture of joy and shock flew through her veins as she rushed over to him grabbing one of his hands in both of her own.
<How?> The thoughts poured into his mind, as tears threatened to fall <He told me he'd kill you. Don't ever listen to him again. Promise me.>
She clutched at his hand like a lifeline. Adrian had never lied about something like this. He always followed through. Thank goodness this was different. Then the sudden fear of a repeat flowed through. If they stayed much longer...No. She would not let it happen again.
<We have to get out> Her thought was firm, with an unquestionable undertone of need. <We have to>


Adrian Carlos

Adrian left Shayla and Nick, knowing they would obey his orders. The sound of a horn stopped him in his tracks. His face creased into a scowl. They were already here.
He marched to the front door before unlocking it and re-locking it behind him. A large white truck was parked in the facilities driveway, with an irritated driver waiting to drive through the large iron gates. If possible Adrian's scowl deepened as he moved forward, and in an obvious display of annoyance, unlocked the rusty iron padlock. Pulling open the heavy gate, with some difficulty, Adrian watched with heated eyes as the truck drove through. The truck turned around before slowly backing up, the back of it slowly getting closer to the door. It stopped about two meters away from the locked door of the facility before the truck driver got out.
The man was in a long white lab coat, and his rather thin, gangly body seemed rather wiry. Adrian didn't soften his features as the man reached out a hand. Adrian didn't take it.
"I thought you said an hour" he said flatly, as the smile dropped from the mans face and he withdrew his proffered hand.
"We thought you might need a hand getting them loaded, and it may take a while"
"I think I am quite capable of taking care of myself" Adrian snapped before demanding to see the inside.
A little peeved, the man agreed, though he now had a sour look on his face. He through open the back doors allowing Adrian to expect the inside.
Adrian couldn't help but raise his eyebrows. It did suit what he wanted well. The inside of the truck was lined with around eight separate cage-like confinements. Each were made purely out of metal with thick bars down the front.
"Well at least you got one thing right" Adrian said gruffly, before opening each of the doors.
"Lucky for you there ready now, I'll be back with them in a while."
"I can hel-"
Adrian turned and gave him a cold glare.
"No. You can't"
He went back inside before slamming the door back in the smarmy mans face. He hated them trying to control what he did. Thank goodness the government had figured out a way he could have rights with the mutants. The stupid white coat could experiment on them as much as he liked, but he, Adrian, would have complete authority. He would get Nick to find the box, and then in between experiments the others could retrieved it. He found Monica and Destiny in the hallway.
"I need both of you to get the lot of them outside. There is a truck waiting for them, make sure they are each caged separately and none get away." He gave them both a pointed look. "Destiny, collect Nick and Shayla, Monica you can deal with the group upstairs, I'll take care of Erin. I assume she's sorted?" He gave her a questioning glance.

"We're all moving to one of the Science facilities." he couldn't keep the sneer out of his voice "but I'll need the both of you with me to make sure we keep control of them"

Shayla Bones


Shay watched Nick drop the mop and run to her. “Shhh.” He said gently, silencing her thank you's. She felt him untie her and she dropped her arms to her lap, leaning on him as he wipped up some of her blood with the rag. Her wrists burned where the rope had been tied, and she looked down to see that they were bruised and bloody. Shit. “Don’t thank me for anything.” She heard him say, and struggled to look up at him, but was hardly able to lift her head. How could she not thank him? He'd just stopped Monica's torture and possibly saved her best friend from the same thing. Even if that meant giving into Adrian.

She was going to speak up when she felt something against her lips. “Come on take a sip.” Nick said, and she forced herself to tilt her head back, catching the look of guilt on his face as she did. Water ran down her dry throat and she sighed softly, drinking it gratefully as it cleared away the clogged, scratchy feeling of her screams and the blood in her mouth from biting down on her tounge was washed away. She sat, leaned against him in silence as he finished cleaning her up, giving her small drinks of the water. When he was done, she had to sit up on her own, using the post for support as he slid her bloody shirt off. The pain in her back made her close her eyes, even though she knew he was being as gentle as he could. Once the ruined shirt was off, he helped her slip into a clean white t-shirt. The new, soft cotton fel good on her burning skin and she sighed as he lifted her gently and moved her. Thank you Nick. She though silently to herself as she leaned her shoulder against the wall and closed her eyes. The wounds on her back were closing up, leaving behind white scars, but her nerves still screamed with pain and her energy was still draining.

Shay didn't even know how long it had been before she felt Nick's closeness again. He wrapped his arms around her gently, waking her from her half-asleep state, and lifted her up. It was strange, accepting help from him. It wasn't something she was used to, but she was just happy she didn't have to walk. Her legs felt like jell-o and the thought of holding up her wieght was agonizing. He carried her out of the room and down the hall. She curled up in his arms and allowed herself to feel small for a moment. It felt good to not have to be the strong one all the time. “Shayla? I’m sorry.” She heard Nick say, and lifter her eyes to look at him. There was guilt all over his face.

Shay shook her head softly, noticing that the pounding was going away a little. "For what?" She whispered, voice still a little hoarse, but rgaining it's strength. "If you're sorry for them using me against you, don't be." She placed her hand against his cheek for a second before dropping it. "I'm just as guilty of that as you are. And you can't possibly be sorry for stopping Monica. If you think you've let me down by agreeing to her terms, you haven't. And you don't have to be sorry that she beat me either. I've handled it a thousand times, what's one more?" Shay sighed softly with the effort of talking. "You didn't do anything wrong. Don't do what I do and blame yourself for everything. It's a hard habit to break." She finished and rested her head back against his chest, closing her eyes halfway.

Monica Flack


On her way to check on Erin, Adrian stopped her and Destiny walked up behind. "I need both of you to get the lot of them outside." He said, and she could tell by the tone of his voice that something had irritated him. "There is a truck waiting for them, make sure they are each caged separately and none get away." He gave them both a pointed look, but Monica shook it off and nodded obiediently. "Destiny, collect Nick and Shayla, Monica you can deal with the group upstairs, I'll take care of Erin. I assume she's sorted?"

Monica grinned and nodded. "Yes. I was just going to check on her now, but I guess you can handle that." And she turned to carry out his orders when he spoke again.

"We're all moving to one of the Science facilities." he sneered behind her "but I'll need the both of you with me to make sure we keep control of them."

"Of course." She grinned and left them there, heading back towards the room she'd just left Daniel in. Once she was there, she threw the door open and gave them all a nod, making sure they were all still there. Shanae, Axel, Jason, and Daniel. Yep. Good. "You're being moved." She said simply. "You're to come with me and give me no trouble." She raised her eyebrows. "And to make sure you don't try somethign stupid at your first breath of fresh air, you're going with me one by one." She jerked her thumb towards Shanae. "Starting with you. Come on Vena, up." Monica yanked the dark haired girl to her feet and dragged her from the room by her arm, walking briskly down the hall.

At the door, she took Shanae's arm by the wrist and wrapped it around to her back. If the girl tried to run, she'd break her own arm. And with that, she shoved her outside and walked her quickly to the truck Adrian had described. The man standing nearby leaped forward like he was going to take over, but Monica held up her hand. She could see why Adrian had been so pissed. "No. Just lock the cage." She hissed and shoved Shanae in the truck, pushing her quickly in the first cage. Once it was locked, she whirled away and repeated the same process for the three boys, making sure to put them on one side of the truck and Shanae on the other so that they couldn't talk without speaking outloud where she could hear them.

Once she was done, she stepped from the back of the truck and leaned her hip against it, arms across her chest to wait for Destiny with Nick and Shay, and Adrian with Erin.

"Yes. I was just going to check on her now, but I guess you can handle that. . .Of course."
Adrian smiled at Monica. She pleased him. He moved on down the hall, ready to collect Erin. He was almost there before, he turned back around and walked back to the kitchen. He grabbed a sack before continuing down the hall. He turned and found Erin tied to a chair.
He didn't bother explaining anything. Better to leave them wondering. He pulled out a knife and held it just under Erin's chin, lifting it slightly.
"Well that is rather interesting"
He removed the knife and swiftly cut the bonds that held her, before delivering a swift blow to the head.
"That's in case you decide to try anything" Adrian said in a growl, before grabbing both of Erin's shoulders and directing her down to the door. Before he exited he tightened his grip on her shoulders.
"For your own interest, I have my gun ready"
He then continued to the truck. He wasn't good at subtle threats. Finally they reached the truck, and Adrian gave Erin a non to gentle shove into the cage next to Shanae's. He made great care to force her to smash her head on the door frame before slamming the door shut.
It appeared Monica had already brought Shanae, Jason, Axel and Daniel down. Her efficiency helped relieve his bad mood somewhat, though he noted that Shanae had now got over Daniel's apparent "death". This annoyed him a little. No doubt it had made her happy. This made Adrian unhappy.



Shanae Vena

<I can help. I think. I have wings.>
Shanae glanced up at Jason. She wondered briefly if perhaps they could be used for flying, but she was distracted by his haggard appearance. He looked worse than before.
< I know how you feel… > she sent gently. Glancing at the whip marks littering his back. No doubt her own looked the same, at least she had managed to get a bandage. She should have stashed some spares. She was about to ask if he knew how the wings could help, or if they could be used for flight, when the door slammed open.
Shanae jumped before pulling her hand away from the others.
"You're being moved. You're to come with me and give me no trouble. And to make sure you don't try something stupid at your first breath of fresh air, you're going with me one by one."
Shanae started to back away before Monica pointed her out.
"Starting with you. Come on Vena, up."
She felt herself wrenched up by her arm. Something was wrong, they were never let out of the facility. What could possibly have happened to make Adrian behave so drastically. The terror shone in her eyes, but there wasn't much she could do. Monica escorted her swiftly to the door, and she managed to glance back at the group quickly before Monica set off with her down the hall. As soon as they reached the door, Shanae stumbled slightly. She'd never seen it open before. She immediately collected herself and was about to yank her arm out of Miss Flack's grip when her arm was twisted painfully behind her back. She let out a startled gasp before being thrust outside.
The light was exceedingly bright outside, and Shanae was forced to squint her eyes against the glare. She hadn't truly been outside in four years. The roof didn't count. Suddenly she was pushed forward and she found herself in a small metal cage. She swung her head around in time to see a strange man slam the barred door shut. Then Miss Flack left. No doubt to bring the others. The confined space made Shanae freak out further. She couldn't stand, and was forced to stay curled up near the back. The cold metal did nothing to add comfort. Gradually the three boys were taken in as well. She glanced up at Daniel, before trying to fit her hand between the bars to contact him. She couldn't reach through. She pulled her hand back, her hands shaking. One of her worst fears had come true. She was unable to communicate. She glanced back up at the other three, before looking back around her confinement cell.
What was going to happen? She felt her fear grow stronger as the unknowns far outweighed the known. Suddenly Adrian appeared and shoved Erin beside herself. Shanae backed away, retreating as far as she could. Adrian slammed the door shut before turning to the rest of them. He held a sack and proceeded to pull out small hunks of stale bread. Her stomach tightened at the thought, and despite her fear she found herself reaching out to desperately try and attain a piece. Adrian passed the bread through the bars of the cage to each of the boys and then Erin.
Finally he turned to Shanae, and reached into the bag and was about to give it to her when he paused.
"How exactly do you plan on eating this?" His own face, while mocking, also seemed to be a little surprised.
Shanae froze.
"It doesn't particularly bother me, I was going to kill you anyway, and that seems reasonably torturous, though I might decide to lengthen the procedure" Adrian said, the confusion gone from his face. "I didn't exactly think of that, but I suppose it doesn't really matter either way."
Shanae made a choking sound. Adrian distributed the rest of the bread to the empty cells for Nick and Shayla before leaving. Her face was white. Surely he couldn't let her starve...though truly it wasn't far beneath him. He was right however. She couldn't swallow properly, and would be unable to eat anything solid.
She glanced up at the others, her stomach contracting harshly again. She hadn't eaten since a day or two ago, when Shayla bought something after the box. Shanae assumed it didn't matter too much, seeing as it didn't appear that she would fed until it was too late.

Jason Conelly

He opened his eyes to look at Shanae when he told her that he had wings. He saw her glancing at his back. He wasn’t too sure what he could do with the wings. He remembered earlier in the day he had practiced with them, learning how to move the new muscles. But he wasn’t sure if he was able to fly with them, he guessed they would, they were large enough, strong enough. <I know how you feel…> Jason was slightly confused then he remembered the whip marks on his back, they still hurt, but the momentary distraction eased the pain, if only a little.

Suddenly Monica appeared in the room and started ordering them about again. Only this time, it was different; he knew he heard that they were going outside. But he knew that no one was supposed to leave the building, it was so heavily guarded and they were supposed to be in ”quarantine”. He watched Monica descend upon Shanae and haul her to her feet, carting her out of the room and down the hall. He was still amazed at how good his hearing was, he heard their footsteps, the sound of a van door, and some metal type scraping, and footsteps again. It was the same until it was his turn to go, and he figured out what that scrapping sound was, it was the sound of a metal door, of a cage. He was tossed roughly inside one and he just sat there, he was too tired to do much else.

He watched the others being brought in, one at a time, all being looked into the cages like animals. Then he saw Adrian march up, a small bag in hand. He went to each of their cages and tossed in some bread, by the way it looked to him, he could tell it was stale. He looked up as he heard Adrian’s footsteps stop at Shanae’s cage, and he taunted her, flaunting the lack of her tongue and the fact that she wouldn’t be able to eat normally. He hated that man, making fun of things they had no control over, things he had caused himself. Jason curled up in the back of his cage, making sure his back didn’t get too agitated and just waited, what else was there to do seeing as they were all looked in cages. He didn’t even bother to raise his head at Daniel’s question when he spoke; he doubted anything was alright in this situation.

Adrian watched as the last of the subjects were herded into the truck. He watched Destiny finish shoving Nick and Shayla in before walking over to Monica. He gestured for Destiny to join them.
"I'll drive with this blockhead" he jerked a thumb at the man behind him "in the truck, if you could follow in one of the black cars in the garage that would be great. " he lowered his voice, to the annoyance of the scientist "I need to make sure the infuriating white coats know there place and we remain in control…"
With that he walked to the front of the truck and made his way into the drivers seat.
"Excuse me-" The scientists voice was cut off, with an icy glare from Adrian.
"You no longer have a problem with me driving, got that?"
The man held in a retort, giving a rather pathetic glare back at Adrian before climbing into the passenger seat.
Adrian turned the key in the ignition, pressing his foot onto the accelerator, purposefully making the truck jerk forward. At once, the truck roared to life and sped past the gates of the facility, with a non-too gentle bump on the curb.


Shanae Vena

<Shanae? You okay?>
Shanae flinched slightly at Erin's touch before forcing herself to relax slightly. The whole situation had set her nerves on edge.
<Alive. But not okay, as per usual> Shanae sent softly. Okay was not something she'd been able to relate to for years.
"Someon- Someone mind telling me what the hell is going on? Now. Before I pass out would be nice."
Shayla.
<Erin, can you pass this on.>
She was about to relay a basic message, when she had a thought about how the message may be sent. Rather than sending direct words, Shanae sent a series of images and emotions. She started with sending a very brief image of Daniel on the rack, before brushing over it and continuing with Jason and Axel coming in. She skipped the memories of Adrian's "murder", preferring to tell Shayla in private. The next images and feelings were ones of escape, before Miss Flack burst in. Then she cut the images short.
<It's only a brief summary…>
"Is everyone alright?"
Shanae glanced up at Daniel through the bars of the cage.
<Please could you let him know I'm here and...fine for now>
Again a stab of annoyance at the way she was forced to rely on someone else passing the messages on. She wanted nothing more to go over and simply stay with Shayla and Daniel, but the cages barred any notion like it. She could just see half of the cage Jason was in from her vision point, that and Daniels. To her right was Erin, to whom she could assume Shayla was next to, from the sound of her voice.
Suddenly the truck gave a huge lurch forward. Throwing Shanae into the side. Her head smashed onto the metal. The truck was moving. She gave a frightened glance at Erin as she felt the cold metal floor move beneath her. There was another large jerk as the truck jumped over a curb. Whoever was driving evidently didn't care for the cargo. Shanae found herself sliding to the corner of her confinement, as the truck turned. There was a thin beam of light coming from outside, and Shanae pressed her eye to the tiny crack.
For the first time in four years, she could see outside the facility.
