Axel sits in the room watching Kevin when all of a sudden, Kevin sits up and decides to get out of the bed. Axel looks at him confused as he goes around the room knocking on the wall. Hearing a thud each time he did so. Kevin stopped for a second and stared at Axel and that's when he understood. Kevin didn't want anyone to know he was doing this, so Axel nodded his head towards Kevin to show he understood. Then he watches as Kevin goes back to knocking on the wall till he hears a hollow sound from the wall. Surprised He looks at the spot Kevin knocked at and it was right by the bed. Axel had an idea that maybe he would be able to use that sometime in the future. For now though he'd have to wait making sure he took care not to get killed or caught.

Finally Kevin laid back down and fell asleep. Axel sits there for a minute and thinks about what to do till he feels tired. He decides finally to do some pushup and situps to make sure he stay fit if he ever needs to fight back against the guards. So he does about 50 push ups when he hears the mega phones turn on and say "Carlos Errant to collect Shanae Vena and Nicholas Brown. Both to see The Doctor". Axel jumps up because he was worried for what might happen to these people but was kinda glad it wasn't him. He sat there for a minute and thought to himself 'I wonder what happens to the people see the doctor. Does he help them? Does he kill them?'

Finally his train of thought about all the people being called in was interrupted by the fact Candace walked in the door. He looks at her and sees the bruise on her face and asks "What happened to you did someone hurt you?" But she told him "I don't wanna talk about it". He looks at her and was quite surprised to she her getting undressed in front of him. He quickly covers his eyes and can tell he is majorily blushing. He nervously said, "The kid is sleeping quite well I hope you'll be okay. You look a little shaken. Well I hope you sleep well. Oh and by the way you look really pretty. I thought you'd like to hear that but eh." Axel tired and confused decides to do so too and lays down after awhile he finally manages to drift off to sleep, as did Candace herself.

Axel sat there waiting when he heard Ms.Flick say, "You want to demonstrate?" And then as soon as he heard her say, ""How cute. Who are you trying to protect? Candace maybe? I know you hope she'll like you." He turned bright red and looked towards Candace and gave her a look. A look that said since the secret is out it's true. Then he became really upset once she said, "Or maybe Shanae since she'd already been to the Box and shouldn't suffer. Or Kevin? Maybe you want to make sure a little kid doesn't have to demonstrate my torture." He became so mad he couldn't control it and had his fists clenched at his sides. While he continued to listen to her say, "There is nothing that goes on in this facility that we don't see. You can try to protect your potential girlfriend, but she's already broken the rules and has her punishment out for her." And that is when she did something Axel didn't expect she slapped him straight across the face. Then continued with, "Sure you can demonstrate, though you wont be protecting anybody. Miss Vena will still demonstrate alongside you and Kevin and Candace have it out for them as well."

Then she stepped away and started to do role call with everyone. She started with Axel and went done the list till everyone was done on the list. Axel had walked back into line with his face burning. Burning not only from the slap but the fact his secret about Candace had been revealed. He still had his fists clinched while he thought to himself, 'Oh just you wait I will have my revenge. And boy will it be a very sweet revenge indeed.'

He then thought about how just about everyone including Kevin would be going to the box. Then he thought about how Shanae and Nicholas would be going to the doctor. He wondered how horrible that would be for the two of them. If they were being tortured this bad by a guard the doctor must be a thousand times worse. He then looked at Candace and decided since the secret was out he would tell her. He leaned over and whispered into her ear, "Candace I think you are amazing and I will do everything in my power to protect you and Kevin as well. I swear even if it costs me my life I will help you all escape from this." And with the he quickly steals a kiss when no ones looking and turns bright red. He then holds out his hand so she can take if she wanted to.

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 watched as everyone slowly finished their pushups. He watch amazed as Shayla stood up and put her arm onto Ms.Flack. She pretended to be buddy buddy with her and say, "Who's the new bitch? And why is she all decked up in a costume?". Right as soon as she said that the new girl came striding over to Shayla. It seemed to almost go slow-mo. He watched as the new girl raised her arm and brought it down quickly smacking Shayla in the face sending her backwards. She replied to Shayla's question with, "Destiny. Keep it memorized because it's not the last time you'll be seeing me."

Luckily Nick was there and caught her to keep her safe. Axel was absolutely pissed makes a fist so tight he feels blood trickle down his hand. He could feel nothing but anger for all of the people, the staff that is. He watched as the woman walked away thinking she was all high and mighty. She finally reached the man that Axel didn't know just yet. He over heard her say to the man, "Now as i was asking... What would you like me to start with?". The man came striding past the girl completely blowing her off. He came walking towards Ms.Flack's direction. Axel moved over in that direction so he might be able to help.

Axel sees him slow down and give Shanea a strong kick to her side. But the cry she gave out didn't even slow him down a single bit, he showed no remorse on his face. He moved too quickly for Axel to react to what he was about to do. The man grabbed Shay and put a knife right up against her throat. He proceeded to say, "If anyone moves I'll kill her." Axel not wanting her to get hurt stayed exactly where he was at not moving an inch. The man to prove his point made a tiny cut, one just enough to make her bleed. He then continued to say, "...and that is something I'd rather not do. I have plans, and they include you Shayla Bones, as much as you may imagine yourself higher then that. And while those plans include keeping you alive...for now, you may want to make sure I do not loose my temper, as I have a rather nasty habit of going...a little too far." He then looked at the new girl and said, "As for what you may start with Destiny. You can take Miss Bones to The Box, and lock her in. I'd prefer her tied up, if you need help you may take Axel. I'm sure he would be quite willing to help with a little...incentive."

Axel looked at the man with disgust and a look of hatred he could absolutely not stand the man. With that he handed his knife over to the new girl and he pulled out a gun and said, "As for the rest of you, you will continue class with Miss Flack, though I shall be watching on the camera's and anyone who decides to follow Miss Bones example will find themselves where she will be going or if I feel like it, in a coffin. Is that clear?" Not waiting for an answer he kept his voice level the same and each word pronounced clearly and precise. He then said, "Nicholas and Shanae will follow me as I believe they are slightly late for a previous appointment, and if Miss Vena cannot or is not willing to go up, Nick you are to ensure she does." With that the man finally left the room as if he owned the place Axel just thought how nice it was gonna be nice getting revenge for everyone. He then heard Destiny bark at him, "Axel over here now." He slowly walked toward the she devil regretting what she was gonna make him do. Then they all proceeded to walk where ever destiny decided to make them go first.

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 watched in anger as he saw that his plan had actually back fired on himself. He fully realized that he had caused Candace to get whipped instead of the opposite. He watched as he saw her ankle draw blood and heard Ms.Flick say, "Don't try and protect her Axel. It's never going to happen." He looked at the women and realized he couldn't do anything about all of this just yet. He thought to himself and decided he would do everything he could to help. Not only help Kevin and Candace but everyone all together. He was sick of them being subject to this kind of torture. He remembered himself having to carry down Shanae's unconscious body. He realized he had been blind and didn't help the others as much as he should have.

Ms.Flick talked and broke him out his train of thought. She had said, "Class is now over." Then she hissed loudly, "File back to your rooms now. Anyone caught sneaking out will be punished." Axel feeling horrible for what he had done, not helping Olivia when she was the one in most pain, had picked her up and gave her relief from her ankles. He whispered to her, "I'm sorry I didn't help but don't worry. I'm not all bronze I'm brain as well. I'll help you all out of here. Im going to figure out an escape route out and defend you guys while you leave." And then Ms.Flick escorted all of them back to their rooms. The first dorm they had stopped at was Dorm 1. He had put Olivia down so she could walk back into her room. He watched as she walked in and saw Shanae laying on the bed unconscious. But he was shocked to see Nick the exact same way on his bed.

They continued on after Ms.Flick had shut the door. Axel couldn't stand to look anyone in the eyes, so he looked down towards the floor. They had finally gotten to their dorm and Kevin went in first then Candace. And lastly Axel who walked slowly still not looking up. Finally Ms.Flick closed the door and Axel had looked up still upset at his own stupidity. He had seen Kevin went straight to bed without changing. He said out loud before curling up in a ball, " Is a fucking conspiracy..." Axel laid there thinking to himself and then looked at Candace he felt to ashamed to even say sorry. Then he debated on whether or not to tell her what he had seen while he was upstairs. He decided it could wait till morning. He saw Candace roll over and say, "Night." He said, "Night" right back to her. He had felt like a fool and felt like he had done nothing right so far. He laid there as everyone else around him fell fast asleep. He argued with himself for awhile on what he really should of done. He thought about ways to escape from the facility but none seemed good enough. Finally he fell asleep after quite a bit of time had passed. And many thoughts discarded or kept to be thought upon deeper at a later time.

Axel looked up at Candace to see what he had said may have been a little too much. She then began to say, "Yeah I think I saw her last night in her room. Nick too, they were both so pale, like zombies. How gross." He watched as she slowly laid back down on the bed and began to rest some more. Axel just sat and watched her as she slept thinking, Wow is she pretty I'm glad I confessed to her. Then an hour later an announcement went over the intercom that had said, "Could Monica and Destiny please take the Dorm members to the dining hall. Except for Shayla, Nick, Shanae , Kevin and Candace." He was shocked to hear that announced on the intercom, but more shocked by what had happened next. The man with the gun had come barging into their dorm. He walked over to Kevin's bed and pulled Kevin out of his bed. Axel yelled, "Hey where are you taking him? Don't just ignore me." And the man had left the room Axel was still surprised, he then regain his composure. He went into the hall but the man and Kevin were gone.

He watched as Candace went from room to room looking for Kevin. Axel confused and not wanting to see if Kevin was attached to the same machine had went and gone to the cafeteria and sat down. Not soon after that had Candace sat down next to him. She looked at him and said, "What do they want with me? Where's Kevin? Am I even allowed to be here? So many questions are running through my mind Axel, what should I do?" And she picked up a little food and started to eat some of it. Axel pondered for a second and said, "In order here is what I think. Last night they did want to send you to the box, maybe they didn't forget and are gonna try to catch you off guard. I have no clue where Kevin is at all I can say is that I hope he isn't attached to that machine. I don't think they wanted you to leave the room but oh well your here now. And I'm sure it will be okay I will go look around for him right after we get out of here. But the thing is I might get beat if I do but Kevin is worth it." He then hugged her and patted he on the back trying to comfort her.

He looked around and saw a new guy sitting in the empty space, right where Axel's blind spot was. I wonder when that guy got here maybe I should go talk to him and see how much people have filled him in. Axel gets up and slowly walks over to the new guy. The man looked to be kinda small for a full grown man, Axel shrugged his shoulders and walked up to a sit. He then sat done and said to the man, "My name is Axel." He then paused and the man did nothing he then asked the man, "So has anyone filled you in on what has happened so far and the rules so you don't get in trouble?"

Monica Flack


"A hiccup? I still wouldn't help him. Not after what he did to Shanae and not after what your about to do." Monica sighed as if she didn't care, but her stormy grey eyes hardened, irritated. She was sure she'd had him. Glancing at Shay, she found the pleading look on her face and rolled her eyes, kicking Shay hard in the ribs.

"You're not protecting anyone Shay." She hissed wickedly, grabbing a fistful of blonde hair and yanking her head back to face her. "Adrian needs Nick to find something. That's all. What's the harm?" Grinning, Monica dropped her head, smacking it hard against the post she was roped to. "If there's a brain in your head, you need to use it Shay. You may heal quickly, but you'll still feel the pain."

Turning sharply, she crossed the room to Adrian's various torture instruments. She ignored the counter and cabinets, reaching for a hot metal poker that had been resting in a crackling fire. "You will agree Nick. Or I'll torture her until she's unconscious. She's spent four years in this place Nick." Monica pleaded falsely, trying to pull sympathy from him. "Don't you think she's had enough?"

She turned to Shay, lowering the red hot piece of metal until it was level with her back. Using it's end, she swiped the girl's blonde hair out of the way. A satisfied grin came to her lips as Shay's back tensed, readying herself. After a moment's hesitation, Monica thrust the metal towards Shay, slapping her hard on the back with it and holding it there as the thin skin along her spine burned. The scream that rose from the girls throat made Monica grin and pull the rod from her back for a second only to slam it right back at her, this time holding it firmly against her neck. Again, Shay shrieked.

"Had enough yet Nick?" Monica grinned, digging the tip of the poker into the place where her shoulder met her neck, watching the red line of blood trickle down her singed skin.

Monica Flack


"Hurting her wont get the answers you want." Monica lifted the rod from Shayla's bleeding neck and raised an eyebrow. "We can be here all night. My answer is no." She glanced down at tied up Shay for a second before whirling around and slamming Nick hard in the face with the rod. Smirking at the huge red mark across his skin, Monica placed the tip of the rod on the ground and leaned on it nonchalantly.

"You hear that darling?" Monica talked over her shoulder to Shay. "He'll let you get beat up." She locked her stone cold eyes on Nick and grinned wickedly. "What is it you want Nick?" She asked, "protection for your friends?" She gestured to Shay. "Because the way I see it, your refusal is only hurting them more. The faster Adrian finds his item, the faster you get out of here Nick. Don't you want that? And even if not for yourself, I know you want Shay and Shanae's freedom." In truth, she couldn't completely guarantee their freedom, it was up to Adrian what to do with the subjects once they were no longer useful. It was a good bargaining tool though.

Again she lifted the rod and smacked him hard on the other cheek. The red mark on the left one was dulling and turning into a purple bruise now. She glanced at Shay. No marks. As she'd expected. Turning back to Nick, Monica threw the poker back into the fire. "What is it you think you're doing? Being the hero? Being tough and rebellious?" Monica laughed wickedly. "The way I see it, you're chained to a wall and there's nothing you can do about being here but obey." She shook her head, dark waves bouncing. "Don't you understand that you're making this place hard on yourself by disobeying?" Her dark gray eyes narrowed on his. "You, Shanae, and Shay may think you're so badass Nick, but really you're just stupid. You're quick to act, but slow to think."

Turning, Monica crossed back over to the weapons rack and mulled over what she wanted to choose. In the end, she decided to go with the whip. Pulling the long black coil from the wall, Monica turned back to the two of them. "Do you want to keep going Nick? Because really, I have better things to do, but I could go all night. And even if she passes out, I've still got you, and Shanae." Grinning wickedly, she flicked the whip. It moved like a deadly extension to her arm and snapped Nick across his bruised cheek, drawing a thin line of blood. The whip had always been her weapon of choice, and over her years at the facility, she'd all but mastered it.

Shayla Bones


Shay watched as Monica lectured Nick and hissed, as she pulled out a whip and lashed it at Nick. In all honesty, she really didn't feel like being whipped because Adrian wanted something, but she didn't know the details. Nick did, and if he thought it was important enough to keep Adrian from getting, then what the hell? What's another set of scars? To her, if it pissed Adrian off, it was worth it. Tilting her head up, she tossed her blonde hair from her face. She could feel the blood at her neck, still wet, but the pain and the wound were both gone. She looked up at Monica.

"Oh please Monica." She hissed, silver eyes on the whip in her hand. "As if we all don't know that as soon as we're useless, Adrian's going to kill us." She smirked. The only ways out of here are death or escape. She looked up at Monica. Probably death. Turning to look at Nick, she could see the bruises on his cheeks and the red line of blood running down one.

Dammit. This is my fault. Nick wasn't meeting her eyes, so she dropped hers back to the floor again and sighed, readying herself for Nick's refusal and the sting of the whip on her back. "You're such a bitch Monica." She hissed, shifting uncomfortably where she was kneeling. If Destiny hadn't have caught them in the hallway, would she be here? If she'd been more careful to hide that she cared about Nick, would she? No, but it was better her then Nick anyway. Nick hadn't really had the joy of having the full experience of Monia or Adrian's tortures yet, and she'd like to keep it that way. She'd dealt with it so many times before, she could do it again.

Bleh, short. Time crunch, sorry -.-

Monica Flack


Monica listened attentively to Nick's little speech, ignoring Shay's comments. "I say it again. My answer is no." She watched as he closed his eyes and leaned his head back, almost relaxed. This pissed her off and her whip shot out again with a large crack, slicing him just below the eye, allowing even more blood to run down his face.

"HA!" She smirked loudly, pulling the whip back in and shacking her head with laughter. "You're going to try and guilt me?" Rolling her eyes, she cracked the whip, allowing the sound to echo in the room. "The world doesn't even know what's going on in this facility. All they think is happening is research for a disease. Didn't the people who picked you up tell you that?" Again, she rolled her eyes. "When this place shuts down, the government will just tell everyone that we've found a cure and it's all over. Then, they'll burn the facility and make up some bullshit excuse about getting rid of the disease and it's germs completely. You'll be dead..." She grinned, "And I'll move on to be in government." Laughing wickedly, she stepped up close to him and grabbed his chin harshly, making him look at her and digging her nails deep into the cut on his cheek. "If you want any chance of a future, you'll do what Adrian says." She dug her nails in deeper. "And you'll watch this. I see your eyes close one more time and Shanae will join her down there."

"I'll go until you tell me to stop or she's unconscious Nick. Just say when." Grinning wickedly, she slammed his head back against the wall and turned sharply on her heel to face Shay. She knelt behind her and yanked the back of her shirt up over her head. "Remember Shay." She hissed. "He's letting this happen to you." and with that, Monica pulled back sharply and stood, raising her arm high, black whip in hand. And brought it down with all her strength and speed onto Shayla's slim, bare back. Monica grinned, rewarded by a deep gash, and whipped her arm forward again and again, tearing Shay's skin with every hit.

Shayla Bones


Shayla watched as Nick tried to guilt Monica and caught the silent "I'm sorry" he shot her way. I know Nick. It's ok. She thought, wishing she could tell him. She didn't want him to feel guilty. Especially not for her sake. Her eyes followed Adrian's black whip in Monica's hand closely. She'd seen it kill a boy before. The thought made her wince and look down. At least this time it was her under the whip, not Nick. She couldn't do that again. Just couldn't.

When Monica was done lecturing Nick and advanced on her, Shay pinched her eyes shut for a second before completely wiping her face clean of emotion, silver eyes locked on an invisible dot straight ahead. "Remember Shay." Monica's voice hissed in her ear. [b]"He's letting this happen to you." Shay rolled her eyes.

"Better me then him or Shanae." Was all she said, before Monica pulled back sharply. A moment of hesitation hung in the air and Shay's back tensed. And the loud crack of the whip broke the silence, striking down hard on her back. The force and speed Monica was able to use the whip with shocked her, and she found it hard to breathe as pain danced it's way across her skin. Searing pain. Like the burning-ice sensation running through her veins of the injection Adrian had given her. Only this was on her skin, burning her back fiercely. Still, she bit down so hard on her tongue that blood filled her mouth and she had to spit it out. She wouldn't scream. She wouldn't give Monica that satisfaction.

Monica whipped her again, and again, each time causing her to jerk and bite down on her tongue, and each time with more and more force. She could feel her back being torn and her new powers working furiously to heal it, exhausting her body even more. Spitting out another mouthful of blood, Monica struck her so hard, Shay's body collapsed completely to the floor with only her arms raised up, tied to the post. A loud scream finally tore from her lips, and she fought down a second one.

Shay was beginning to lose consciousness. Usually, she'd be able to stay awake much longer, but the emotional strain of Shanae's whipping along with her body trying to heal her wounds were wearing her out fast. She fought to stay awake. There was no way she was going to fall asleep and let Monica have a go at Shanae or Nick in her place. Her eyes flickered and she whimpered, but kept consciousness. All she wanted to to was let the black velvet of sleep take her, but she couldn't. She wouldn't let anyone take her place. They could be killed. At least she was healing. It would be over soon. Though she knew she didn't have much time left as her blinks got slower and slower with each strike and the pain came in waves. Her healing was counteracting weirdly, numbing the pain for a few seconds while it tried to heal the wounds, then Monica would strike extra hard and all of the burning fire would roll over her, making her scream even though she'd told herself she wouldn't.

Monica Flack


"Stop!" Nick cried behind Monica finally. "Your going to kill her." And she stopped her hand in midair, right as it was sailing for Shay again. The tip of the whip still hit her, but it was nothing compared to what she had been doing. Slowly, she coiled up her whip in one flick, blood splashing up her arm as she did so. Victory filled her and a grin spread across her face as she turned to look at Nick with a proud gleam in her eyes.

"Finally had enough?" She her smiled widened and stretched into a smirk. "Or do you want me to go until she's blacked out?" Just for effect, she whipped Shay, who'd been climbing back to her knees, once more, sending her back to the ground again before turning back to the chained-up Nick. She noted the tears in his eyes and gloated. She knew Shay had been the right choice. People will do anything with a little incentive. A lesson she'd learned from Adrian. "Ready to agree to do what Adrian says?" Monica asked, flicking the whip softly at her side as a constant reminder that as soon as he said no, she was ready to let it fly again. "Honestly Nick. It's the best chance you have to save yourself." She glanced at Shay. "And your friends."

It would be against Adrian's orders to kill Shay, but it wouldn't hurt to make sure the two of them thought she would.

"Stop!" Nicks voice cut through the violent cracking of the whip, swimming it's way somehow into her fuzzy hearing, and registering in her thread of consciousness. He'd told Monica to stop whipping her. Suddenly, the constant, rhythmic pain of the whips stopped and the room was suddenly pin-drop quiet. Or maybe she just couldn't hear anything. Her head was spinning and the only sense that wasn't in slow-mo was her sense of touch and feel. No. That she was one-hundred percent aware of as the burning pain danced across every nerve in her back. She felt her body working to heal the cuts, causing extreme exhaustion. She couldn't keep up with it. Breathing heavily, she fought to stay awake and listen to what was going on.

And yet through all of this, all she could think was: NO! Don't do what Adrian says! Over and over again, this ran through her head. Please Nick. I'm ready to die. I've been ready for three and a half years. Don't do this for my sake. She fought to say the words, but her throat was clogged with blood from biting back screams. So instead, she began to work her way to her knees.

Only to be whipped back down by Monica, sending another wave of pain crashing over her. She couldn't hear, and even if she could, her foggy head couldn't comprehend the words. Shay had no idea if Nick had accepted Monica's offer or not yet, but she had to do something. "Nick..." She croaked, voice thick as she tried not to choke on her own blood. She kept her eyes locked on the post in front of her, though the edges of her vision were going black. "Don't- don't do it..." Coughing up blood, she groaned and let her head drop to the blood-spattered floor, though still keeping her eyes open.

She was prepared to die here. She wouldn't let Adrian get whatever the hell he wanted. Whatever it was, it couldn't be good. It just couldn't be based on what he was doing to innocent kids over it. He'd killed so many, and if this thing would give Adrian any form of power, she was going to keep it from him. Nick couldn't say yes. She'd rather die than give Adrian any more influence than he already had.

Her only regret would be Shanae. If Nick said no, and Monica whipped her to death, Shay would never be able to say goodbye to her friend. Or sorry. Sorry for not trying harder. For always getting them in trouble. For being downright stupid. And for leaving her alone. Though she wasn't really alone now she guessed... She had Daniel and Nick now. Silently, Shay wondered who would grieve over her death. Shanae would be sad, sure, but she'd seen so many deaths over the past four years. Somehow, Shay guessed that hers would sting for a while, but in the end, she'd merely be another name on that never-ending list. Plus, she had Daniel and Nick to help her get over it. The only other person she could think of was Nick. Though Nick was newer then Shanae, so maybe her death would hurt him. Maybe not. Afterall, they'd barely known each other. It was a thing Shay thought about often while in the Box. Who would know about her death? Would her brothers, if they were even still alive, would they be informed? Would they even care about their sister who'd been taken from them four years ago.

Finding herself drifting off, Shay yanked herself from her morbid thoughts. Shut up and stop feeling sorry for yourself. She cursed herself. It was unhealthy to think that way. She couldn't get soft. She'd stayed strong for so long. Now was not the time to let them break her. Somehow, though there were no signs of it, Shay felt like they were on the verge of a breakthrough. Slowly, she rose herself to her knees again and turned her pounding head to face Nick. She couldn't talk again, but she was good at sending messages with her eyes so she let her silver ones find his. Do what you think is right Nick. And then she lay herself back down and turned her head away, thinking of Shanae's face so fiercely, her foggy mind could almost swear she was in the room with them. Stay. Awake. For her.

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...

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.

#, as written by Shané
Shanae Vena

<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.

Shayla Bones


Shay felt Nick's uncertainty, and wanted to say something else but couldn't. She was just too exhausted, and there was suddenly someone else in the hall with them. "Put her down. She has legs she can use them." She heard Destiny bark, and lifted her head from its spot on Nick to look at the woman. The thought of holding up her weight made her want to puke, but Nick set her down gently and held her around the waist, allowing her to use him for support. Once Destiny had rolled her eyes and whirled around, she shot him a look of thanks and they followed her down the hall to wherever the woman was taking them.

An empty room apparently. Shay was confused. "Uh..." She began, but before the sarcastic comment was out, Destiny yanked her away from Nick, threw her down in a corner, and kicked her swiftly in the ribs. The kick caused her hearing to ring once more like it had during Monica's whipping and her moment of accepting help and feeling small flew right out the window. "Bitch!" She hissed at Destiny hoarsely, and Nick was yanked from the room, the ringing in her ears preventing her from hearing Destiny's parting words. Not that that was a problem anyway.

Shay groaned, holding her hand to her ribs as the elbow supporting her gave way and she slumped to the floor to wait for whatever was going on. She'd never been in this room before. Why had Destiny taken Nick? She though of Nick and groaned again. Oh God, please don't be hurting him. She rolled painfully onto her side. Great. Now, because of Monica, she couldn't lay on her back, and because of Destiny, she couldn't lay on her stomach either. Fan-freaking-tastic.

"Your turn." Destiny's voice came to her a moment later sounding diluted, as it floated towards her through water instead of air. A searing pain at her scalp told her that she was being yanked up by her hair. "Shit!" She hissed hoarsely. "What the hell is it with you freaks and hair?!" Once she was up, Destiny grabbed her shoulder so tightly, Shay was sure there'd be a bruise, and dragged her from the room down the hall at a swift pace. She could barley keep up, stumbling along as her legs struggled to hold up her weight.

Then suddenly, she was shoved out into fresh air. What the hell? She was outside. But why? Adrian never let them outside, why now? Then just as quickly as she'd tasted it, it was ripped away and she was shoved violently into a cage in the back of a van. "Nick cares so much for you. I wonder what it would do to him to watch you die. He'll find out soon enough. And I'll make sure he watches, even if I have to hold his head and cut his eyelids off." She heard Destiny sneer at her as a man she'd never seen locked her cage.

Shay used what was left of her strength to sit up and scream back at the woman as she left the van. "Fuck off bitch!" She shrieked, the result coming out as a hoarse shrill noise, but at least you could make out her words. Slumping back down to the floor of her cage, she realized that the others were in the van too, all in their own personal cages. Jason and Daniel looked just as beat up as she did, but Axel, Shanae, and Nick looked alright. Shanae! She wanted nothing more than to hug her friend right now, but she had no energy to even move. Plus there was the matter of the cages.

With a deep groan, she forced herself to sit up against the wall of the cage and look at the others, trying hard to keep herself awake. "Someon-" She choked and started over. "Someone mind telling me what the hell is going on?" She asked, in as loud a voice as she could manage. She glanced at Nick and Shanae again, silver eyes a little wary. All she wanted to do was sleep, regain all the energy Monica had whipped out of her, but she had to figure out what was going on, and she wasn't letting anyone out of her sight again. Something big was happening and she didn't know exactly what it meant for them, but she wasn't taking chances. She wished she was close to Shanae so she could hold her hand too, but she was no where near her so she slipped her hand between the bars of Nick's cage and placed it against the back of his. "Now." She hissed, looking back at the others. "Before I pass out would be nice."

<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.
