Someone has to find out whats happening...

0 · 352 views · located in Upstairs

a character in “Quarantined”, as played by Shané

Description

She is very slender and thin. Her skin is very pale and it's porcelain colour stands in stark contrast to her jet black hair. Her jet black hair is dead straight. Her eyes are her most striking feature. They are a soft green colour. Her lips are quite slender and are usually a quite dark pink/red colour. Shanae's face is also very narrow and almost all her features are quite delicate, with the exception of her eyes. Shanae only had the chance to grab a few changes of clothes before being herded off to the facility. She usually wears dark colours, and is usually found wearing a pair of black jeans and a simple cotton top, also in black. Shanae always holds herself with a sense of purpose. Her chin is always lifted no matter the circumstances.

Characters Name: Shanae Vena
Age: 18
Gender: Female
Role: Subject
Possible Romance: Daniel

Personality

Shanae is quietly determined. She will never go through with something she does not want to happen without a struggle. This often puts her in lots of trouble. She is also very vocal about her beliefs and unjustice. Her steely determination and sense of justice are probably her best aspects. She is also very gentle with younger children and will do anything to protect the weaker.
Some downsides to Shanae is her lack of knowing when to stop. Too often she fails to keep her mouth shut and ends up in trouble. She also can be quite dark in thoughts and a little negative and depressing, though mostly she is quite active and intelligent. Shanae also has a very sarcastic sense of humour, and never fails to use it whether it be student or people in charge, though never to younger children.

History

Shanae's parents completely bought the whole "Denva" thing. Shanae herself completely disbelieves it, however both parents were told she was delusional and she was forced to go to the Denva Quarantine Facility, albeit putting up a huge struggle. She is one of the subjects that has been there for a while, about two months, and was within the first twenty apparently diagnosed. She is the last surviving. All her friends died after a visitation to the doctor, or a period spent too long in the Box.
Shanae herself has not gone to the Doctor, and wonders what is going on. Adrian has a pet hate for her as through everything she has still remained defiant and is often found in the Box after a show of it.
In her past Shanae enjoyed her life. She was doing reasonably well at school and was about to conclude her highschool years. She had a large group of friends and was planning to study medecine when she and if she passed her exams with high enough marks. Her parents loved her, but were usually too busy at work to take too much part in Shanae's life. She has two younger sisters, Tahlia and Melissa, whom she was really close to. Tahlia is still at home and is about six. Shanae is desperate to see her again, thoug she doesn't dare mention her to any one. The officials normally take all siblings...fortunately Tahlia was at a friends house, Melissa was not so lucky. Melissa shares most of Shanae's features however has thick curly black hair. Melissa was also diagnosed with Denva, but was taken up to the Doctor. The last Shanae saw of her was a white body being carried out of the facility. Melissa had come back from the Doctor barely conscious with a high fever. She could barely speak and all she could say was a simple warning to stay away from the Doctor. Shanae has vowed to find out what is amiss at the place in honour of her sister.

So begins...

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 sits up after he hears Shayla and Shanae run into the gym. He looks at them with relief because the guards hadn't come back yet so they would not be in trouble. As soon as Shanae enters the room she yells you everyone, "Everyone, get in a line. Now. I don't want to boss you around, but unless you want to end up looking like me, I suggest you do it". Axel, use to following orders from his martial arts sensei, almost automatically jumped into line right next to Shanae. Next to Shanae was Shayla and to the left of Axel was Candace. He looked at Candace and hears Shanae ask, "What happened while Shay and I were gone?".

Axel looks at Candace for a couple more seconds admiring her beauty and finally turn towards Shanae. He thinks for a minute and whispers, "Well Candace, my roommate, was out in the hall and from what I can tell she got hit. You and Nicholas were called to go see some kind of Doctor. And then we were all paged to come down here that's about all I can tell you off the top of my head." Then right when he finishes talking Ms.Flick walks into the gym. At that point everyone had lined up fearing what might happen if they don't.

Axel, feeling like something bad might happen after remembering about what happened to Shayla, blurts out while stepping forward, "Ms.Flack if you need to demonstrate anything during this class I'll volunteer to be your test subject for tonight. So please use me and not anyone I'm fully aware of what I'm saying and am willing to take the consequences for it." He looks around thinking 'Most of the people here are women and children. I can't be the kind of person to sit back and watch as they get hurt. I think this is the better off way to do it.' He looks towards Ms.Flack to see a very evil and menacing grin come across her face.

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

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

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

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

Axel 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 slept very lightly and had horrible dreams of everything that had gone on the night before. He finally woke up looking around and seeing sun shine into the room. Making it look bright and giving off warmth, Axel looked around and saw Candace sitting on her bed . He then looked over at Kevin's bed and saw he was asleep. Axel sat for a minute and thought 'What was it I was gonna tell Candace? Oh yea everything I saw last night.' Axel looks over to her and says, "Candace I have something I want you to hear. You probably won't like it but I think you should know so we all can prepare for it." He saw she had a look of confusion. "Remember when I had been dragged along to help tie up Shayla?" She nodded her head. "Well right after there was an announcement that called me to go up stairs."

He paused for a second remembering all the things he had seen and experienced. "I went up there and as soon as I got in the room I found...Shanae laying on the ground unconscious. I checked her pulse and it looked like she was okay though. All i can assume is that the guy that had the gun did it. There was a machine I think he used on her to make that happen to her. I also had to carry her down the stairs and before I left I remember seeing him get ready to hook nick up to the machine. All I am saying is make sure you never have to go there it doesn't seem safe at all. By the way from what I could tell Shanae is safe and I had put here in her room.

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?"

Axel heard Shayla say, "Dito." Then the girl whose hand he was shaking spoke up and said, "Emily." Then a girl he didn't know walked in and had said, "Um, Shayla?" That's when Shayla turned around and snapped, "Yeah. That's me unfortunately. What the hell do you want?" He walked up to Shayla and said, "I'm going to leave you guys for a second but I will be back. I'm gonna go check on everyone else, don't worry I'll behave myself." He then walked closer leaned in and whispered in her ear, "I had a visit with the doctor as well. I now have a special ability which is super strength. But I could have more I don't know yet." He leaned away and looked at the surprised look on Shayla's face. He then said to everyone, "Alright I'll be back real quick." He then walked off toward the other dorm to go see how Shanae and the others were doing.

He got to the dorm and tried the door, but it didn't open so he yelled in, "Hey Shanae are you guys in there? I have something I wanna tell you. It is so amazing and I think it could really help you guys. So answer me if you are awake and can hear me." He sat there and waited for a response from her or anyone at that matter. He thought about whether or not to break the door to let everyone out or to see if they are even in there.

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

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

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

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

Daniel Matlock

Daniel was moving towards Shanae when the door to his dorm burst open. Monica entered, knife in-hand. Within seconds, she had "collected" Nick and had left just as soon. Matlock watched the scene with a clenched jaw; unable to do anything about it. He figured he should get used to the feeling of being helpless, but he doubted that would ever happen, even if he ended up being here for years.

After the door slammed shut again, Daniel self-consciously made his way to Shanae where she was curled up in bed, staring at the bleak wall. Unsure of what to say, he decided to say nothing. Instead, he pulled a small, plastic chair from the corner of the room, placing it next to Shanae's bed before sitting down. Slowly, he placed one hand on her shoulder. He knew that he should say something to her, or at least make sure she was okay medically. He opened his mouth to speak, but no words came.

His heart was beating quickly, although he was sure that was just the emotional stress. His hands were trembling, no doubt the adrenaline. He'd crash soon enough, but that wasn't important right now. No... everything that was important was in front of him. After all, he had an obligation to help these people, these "subjects" to the best of his ability. In particular, he felt a debt to Shanae... for what he had let happen to her on his watch.

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

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

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


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

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


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

Adrian Carlos

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


(Sorry it's short, not sure what to write. Bleh, will be better next time)

Adrian Carlos

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


Shanae Vena

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

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


Shanae Vena

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

Shanae Vena

Tears rolled down her face as Daniel fell to his knees before falling to the floor. Her vision was badly blurred and she could barely see his limp form. Adrian had killed another. She had watched so many...even with all the others Daniel felt different. He had almost made her feel as though he could get them out. She choked on the memory. She had only known him for a short time, but she had half trusted him. That was rare. Truly the only person she trusted was Shayla. The thought sent another torrent of tears down her face. Who knew what was happening to Shay? Everyone she'd ever trusted had been hurt. Mel, dead, Shay continuously tortured and now Daniel… Shanae stayed silent as the minutes ticked by and Adrian waited till the gas was less concentrated. Her head ached and the sorrow of loosing yet another one continually racked her body in the form of silent sobs.
Adrian stalked forward and unlocked the door to the case opening it and catching Shanae's head as he did so. The red haze quickly dispersed, no longer concentrated enough to do damaged. Shanae stumbled forward to reach Daniel, before Adrian quickly caught her by the waist, dragging her out of the room. Through her tears, Shanae could barely see Daniel, but Adrian quickly quenched any idea that he was alive.
"Shanae give up" he growled at her as he forcibly removed her from the room "I've killed many before, and he won't be the last"
Shanae went still allowing him to drag her from the room and down the hallway. She sensed she was not going back to the dorms, but the knowledge ceased to worry her as her sorrow continued to eat away at her. She no longer cared as Adrian hauled her to the corner of the cell before picking up one of the chains on the ground and snapping one of the clasps onto her thin wrist. He threw her onto the floor, before kneeling down to her level.
"You've seen so many others die Shanae, why so much fuss for him?" Adrian lowered his voice even further "You only endanger those you become attached to Shanae. Every single one I have killed, slowly and painfully...Shayla will be the last, then you can follow her."
Shanae remained motionless, curled up in the corner. She drew her knees up to her chest, her dark hair falling over her face hiding the pain and sorrow. She leaned against the corner of the room, wishing herself away. If only he had listened...she had been forced to watch him die and soon she would see Shay follow before Adrian turned to her. The tears continued to trickle slowly down her face, and she made no attempt to stop them.


Adrian Carlos

Adrian smirked as he left Shanae to his misery. He knew Daniel wasn't dead, but in her hysteria, Shanae had missed that fact so he had left it that way. She could mourn him for a while. The only regret was how silently Daniel had fallen unconscious. He had been hoping for a more violent, painful end. It seemed that the sensation had almost pleased Daniel and that had angered him. At least Shanae's reaction was satisfying. He could use that small bond she had with Daniel later.
He walked back into the experiment chamber before the phone rang.
Picking it up, Adrian's face darkened.
"Now? I am in the middle of something now, I won't move them…"
If it was possible, his face darkened even further.
"Fine. But I insist on have rights with them. I have seven at the moment. I'll change the last one now in order to be ready for your arrival. You could have given me a little more time than a few hours."
Adrian snapped the last bit out before slamming the handset down into the cradle.
He needed to collect them all.
He first went straight down to Destiny's class.
"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 grabbed Erin by the wrist hauling her along to the chamber.

"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" Adrian spat through gritted teeth. This time he meant every word he said. He needed this to work and he needed it to work now. This was when he was his most dangerous, he was no longer so rational to make sure that he was careful about punishments. In this sort of state one wrong move would kill you.

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.

Jason Conelly

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"

Shanae Vena

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…>



(Same issue as Safton, time for interaction!)

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>
