a character in “Quarantined”, as played by yogitheambrangyl

Description

Age: 18

Gender: Male

Role: Subject

Description: Jason is 5'8" with shaggy, sand blonde hair and amber eyes with flecks of gold. He has a small build for a guy, though he does have muscles, just not prominant ones. http://media.photobucket.com/image/blon ... /edgee.jpg

Personality: He tends to be silent and watchful. He will help those he considers his friends.

History: Jason was like any other teenage boy. He had a nice house, a good family and was doing great in school. Then things changed when his parents got divorced. His mother took his sister Adalie and his father kept custody of him. They moved out and he had to transfer schools. Transfering schools in the middle of the year is a drag. He knew no one and no one cared to help him out. He barely got by with his grades and stuck to himself in class, gaining no friends. Eventually his father lost his job and they had to move again, to a small apartment and his father drank day in and day out. He did anything he could not to come home. He got a job to help pay the bills because his father obviously wasn't going to pay them. When he finally turned eighteen he left without turnning back. He had saved enough money to get his own drabby little apartment, but on the bright side, he didn't have to go home to a drunken father every afternoon. He finally made some progress in school to obtain semi-passing grades and get a better job. Then one day he was told he had the mysterious disease Denva. He had heared of it before but didn't know what it was, what the symptoms were. But he did know that so far everyone with Denva had died. He packed his things and left with the guards that were sent to fetch him.

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.

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.

Axel stood there none too impressed at Destiny summoning him to a class. Destiny looked upset that everyone was in place and in alphabetical order. She snapped and said, "Well, you don't need to know what happened with her, just know that if you don't shut up Erin will be facing the same fate." She walked down the line and said, "Erin step into the center of the gym, and get down to your knees." She pushed Erin forward and evilly said, "I want to see how hard Jason will work to keep you alive." Destiny sat and bit her lip looking like she wanted to say something. She then began to talk while an evil smile came across her face.

"I want to see how hard Jason will work to keep you alive." She looked at Axel while saying, "I want Axel to, while Jason your to do laps around the gym. At the end of every lap your to do twenty push-ups, and for every two minutes it takes you, Axel will be forced to whip Erin until I decide to stop you." Axel looked at her in disgust at that very comment. She cuffed Erin and hooked the handcuff to a ring on the floor. Destiny then came over and handed Axel the whip. Destiny yelled, "Begin" Axel just looked at her and thought about how if he tried to protect Erin it might get worse. He didn't care he would try his best to try and help at all. He looked right at Destiny and yelled, "What if I refuse to whip her? What are you gonna do beat me instead? I'm sure no one here would be upset if that happened at all."

With that he threw the whip on the ground right by her feet. He then pulled off his shirt,which showed his new and greatly defined muscles, and knelt right in front of Destiny with his back to her. "Come on whip me if you're women enough. I think you'll have more fun making a fun grown man flinch in pain. I'm sure you have been dying to get a look at my body. Maybe even beat me a little come on you know you want to." He looked back at her with a giant smile, he saw she was absolutely pissed at him. He didn't care he was ready for this beating she was about to give.

He couldn’t keep time in his head anymore, the blood was rushing through his ears and his arms and legs felt as if they were on fire. He barely noticed the interaction between Axel, Destiny and Erin. He felt as if he were going to collapse on his feet. He was getting light headed and was seeing spots through his vision. Almost suddenly Axel was running next to him, and in the back of his mind his ears had heard and remembered for him that he was now supposed to do more work in order for Erin not to be hurt. His breathing was coming in short gasps, his lungs feeling as if they were on fire along with the rest of his lungs. That’s when his legs gave out on him; he couldn’t get them to work much more. He collapsed to the ground with a groan and started coughing. He was to weak but he pushed himself back up, legs shaking, unable to hold him up and he collapsed again.

(Sorry it's short, it's a little late XD)

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.

(I know its short but this is the shortest one I've ever wrote I cant really think of what to write right now. Sorry I have writers block going on.)

Axel was on his second lap when he saw Destiny whip Jason in the back quite a few times. She then whipped him again and kicked him saying, "Pathetic. Your lucky I can't just kill you right here, right now." Axel passed them as she was kneeling down at Jason. He looked over his shoulder and saw she grabbed him and started to pull him up. He couldn't make out what she was saying because he was to far away. But he saw her let go of him and kicked him in the leg. He then got down to do his sit-ups when he heard her say, [b]"Now stand up!" And then she whipped him in the ankle once again. Axel looked at them and thought 'I want to stop her so she will never be able to hurt anyone anywhere ever again.' Nobody seemed to be talking up about any of this happening which was really agitating to Axel. He wanted to just yell out but couldn't do so in fear of causing more trouble. Axel watched as Jason went on struggling with his lap. Jason finally got over to Axel as soon as he finished his sit-ups. Axel did his push ups while Jason did his sit ups he could tell Jason was in real pain. He looked and saw blood smearing on the floor. He felt so bad for Jason, as soon as Axel was finished he took off running. He saw out of the corner of his eye Jason starting his push ups he was quite proud of the guys determination. Axel yelled, "You can do it Jason keep going man. You're doing better must people could ever hope to do even in perfect health." He smiled as he kept running around the gym.

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.

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.

He looked through blurry eyes at the hand that suddenly went into his line of site. He looked up at Axel and gratefully took his hand. He was grateful for the help because he didn’t know how much longer he would be able to stand on his own, or how much longer he would be able to stay conscious. He heard through the rush in his ears something about getting his arms over Axel’s shoulders. He complied and stretched his arms around Axel and felt himself being pulled into a piggy back. Axel was saying something about resisting and that everyone needed help sometimes. Jason at the moment didn’t care about being lifted in a piggy back or not, he was just grateful that he didn’t have to walk on his own feet the whole way.

He could tell Axel was moving slowly so as not to hurt him more but all the pain came as a dull throb. Each movement sent a wave of heat based pain through his back. But he knew it could be worse, walking would have sent eh fire through his ankles and legs, and more forcefully through the whip marks on his back. He figured they were still bleeding; he hadn’t been still long enough for them to scab over and start to heal. His shirt was probably soaked through and leaving small droplets on the floor as the blood dripped to the floor.

He felt himself lowered on the floor and winced slightly. He had to put the pressure on his ankles to be able to balance his way into a sitting position because he knew he definitely couldn’t stay on his feet. A quick glance showed him that Shanae was there, Axel asking her how she was before asking him. Jason just nodded to the question; he didn’t have much strength to do much else. He didn’t know what Shanae had been through but she looked exhausted. He laid his head back against the wall, just wishing he could sleep, he let his eyes close.

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"

Daniel's green eyes met her own in response to her question.
"You know I can't promise that. Not if it means you--" he paused, "any of you will get hurt."
Shanae frowned about to speak, when Daniel gripped her thin hand tighter, answering her other question.
"My thoughts exactly,"
<I'm working on it... but if anyone else has any bright ideas, I'm all ears. I'll do whatever it takes to get us out of here.>
<If it's going to work you can't listen to him.> she sent firmly <We're going to get hurt whether you do what he asks or not. You don't have the luxury of "helping" anyone.>
She then realeased his hand briefly, before moving over to Jason and Axel. She gently picked up Jason's hand and moved it next to Axels in order to place her hand over both of them. She then reached back over to hold Daniels. She tested the link with her mind. She felt the probe extend into all three minds, and she nodded satisfied that she could speak to all three at once.

<We will get out> the statement was sent with reasonable force. <The only question is how…>

Shane had placed her hands on Axel's hand. Axel was so shocked when all of a sudden he heard Shane's voice in his head. <Daniel's gone. I don't want to talk about it> Axel looked at her with his mouth dropped open unable to speak for a moment. She had moved her hand away from Axel's, then she turned away from him looking sad. But before she moved her hand away he could feel emotions that weren't his own. "When did you learn to do that? And why aren't you talking normally?" He looked at her alittle confused about all of it. She seemed to look at and talk to Jason in her head. She looked at his cuts and looked like she was trying to help him. Axel sat there wondering if everyone had powers what they were. All of a sudden Daniel came through the door and had said, "Shanae, we need to--" As soon as he had said that little bit he had collapsed against the wall. Axel looked at Shane and she looked like she was about to cry her eyes out. Axel felt kinda happy for the two of them they looked great together. Shane had put her hand on Daniel's and sat there for a minute. He figured she was talking to him, then all of a sudden Daniel started to speak.

"You know I can't promise that. Not if it means you--" Daniel paused for a moment and went on, "any of you will get hurt." From what Axel could tell she was still talking to him. Daniel blurted out, "My thoughts exactly" While saying that he seemed to have a little smirk coming across his face. Shane then walked over toward moved Axel and Jason. As soon as she did so she put their hands next to each other. Axel heard he voice in his head once again. <We will get out> Axel could clearly hear everything easily. <The only question is how…> Axel looked at her and thought maybe she could hear his thought so he thought hard so she could hear him. <Well we have my super strength and my weird new pain tolerance. Maybe we can have me distract people while you have the others use their abilities to get us out.> He looked at every and felt a strong urge to do whatever he could to help them.

<Well we have my super strength and my weird new pain tolerance. Maybe we can have me distract people while you have the others use their abilities to get us out.>
Shanae glanced up at Axel and nodded slightly. It seemed all of them had something...just how they could use them was the problem.
<We could use that> Shanae said slowly <But it would have to be carefully planned, and there would need to be a way you could follow us out...It's not just Adrian that we need to be careful of. There's also Miss Flack and Destiny.>
Shanae stiffened slightly remembering Axel's previous question.
"When did you learn to do that? And why aren't you talking normally?"
<Axel?> she started, her expression pained <To your previous question...I didn't learn to do this, Adrian did it. I can speak to Nick directly at anytime, and everyone else through touch...I can also give energy and see.> she stopped trying to word it appropriately. <...opportunities/choices that can be made, though at random.>
She stopped completely. Not wanting to think about the second question, but finally deciding he needed to know.
<For the second question. I can't talk…> her thoughts became more quiet <Adrian, removed my tongue>
She said finally, focusing on the cold stone tiles.
There was an awkward pause, before Shanae came up with an idea.
<I can contact Nick…>
She reached out her mind to Nicks while attempting to keep the link with all three of the others. It took her several attempts before she made it. Now hopefully the others could here Nick as well as herself.
<Nick? I'm upstairs with Axel, Jason and Daniel> she felt a thrill of joy at being able to add Daniels name to the list, before managing to contain her feelings <We're trying to plan...what has happened with you?>
A sudden thought rammed through her head.
<Where's Shayla? I need to know she okay>

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.

<We could use that> Shanae said slowly to everyone <But it would have to be carefully planned, and there would need to be a way you could follow us out...It's not just Adrian that we need to be careful of. There's also Miss Flack and Destiny.> Axel felt Shanae shiver then he heard in his head, <Axel?>he looked at her and her expression looked pained <To your previous question...I didn't learn to do this, Adrian did it. I can speak to Nick directly at anytime, and everyone else through touch...I can also give energy and see.> She paused for a second and continued with <...opportunities/choices that can be made, though at random.> Axel tried to understand what was going on while listening. She didn't think aloud with them for a minute. Then she continues sending thoughts to them <For the second question. I can't talk…> her thoughts became more quiet <Adrian, removed my tongue>. When Axel heard that he about jumped, at this point he thought of nothing better then smashing the man's head in. She looked around and then said <I can contact Nick…> She started trying and thought <Nick? I'm upstairs with Axel, Jason and Daniel> She seemed to happy to say that. She went on with <We're trying to plan...what has happened with you?> Then she quickly thought <Where's Shayla? I need to know she okay>

Axel heard Nick's voice say <Shanae? Shayla is fine and still very much alive.> Then all of a sudden he heard Jason's voice in his head <I can help. I think. I have wings.> Axel was awestruck at the fact Jason had wings and could fly. Then Shanae had said < I know how you feel… > All of a sudden the door slammed open and everyone moved there hands away. Monica walked in and said, "You're being moved. You're to come with me and give me no trouble." She raised her eyebrows at everyone. "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 Shanae to her feet and dragged her from the room by her arm. Everyone was slowly brought into a weird van it was so bright outside. Axel enjoyed his moment of freedom, then he got into the van then shoved into a cage. Axel felt his stomach ache for food and couldn't wait to get something to eat.

Suddenly Axel saw Adrian appear and shove Erin beside Shanae. Shanae backed away, moving as far away 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. He started handing everyone pieces, he finally reached Axel and Axel about ripped his arm off for the bread. He started eating the piece slowly to try and help with the hunger pain he was feeling. Adrian stopped at Shanae and said, "How exactly do you plan on eating this?" His own face, while mocking, also seemed to be a little surprised. "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." Axel looked at his bread and looked at Shanae he said, "Well if you dont mind someone like Daniel could chew it up for you until its like a liquid then slowly transfer it to your mouth. But that will have to wait till we are stopped."

Axel slowly ate pieces of his bread while listening to everyone he heard Shayla ask, "Someon- Someone mind telling me what the hell is going on? Now. Before I pass out would be nice." He saw Shanae touching Erin's hand and knew she was telling her what to say to her. Then out of no where the van started to move swiftly causing everyone to shift about. Axel held his arms against the bars and didn't move a bit. He looked at everyone and then there was a giant bumped as if they hit a curb. Even Axel moved upward with that bump he thought to himself, 'I wonder where this jerk got his license from.' He kept eating his bread and then got down to about fifteen percent of it. He decided to keep the rest to hand the Daniel after they got out of the van, so he could feed it to Shanae.
