We are born. We die. Somewhere in between we live. And how we live is up to us.




"Its nice to meet you Erin now if you will just follow me...." Winter stopped when she heard Jim shouting from down stairs then Alex shouting about his rules. Oh yes rule #2 don't be a saint blah blah blah.

"Jimmy go suck an egg and Alex shove your rules up your ass alongside that 7 foot pole!" Winter shouted back, her ever present trucker mouth making itself known. Hey blame Jim for her potty mouth, he may not act it now but he swore worse then her once upon a time. Winter turned back to Erin just as Kennedy came back and handed Winter the spare clothes then went back down stairs.

"Alright as I was saying I'll show you to the bat...." Winter started again but another thing interrupted her. And that thing was in a form of the loud sound of the front door being kicked open. Shit! Without saying anything Winter grabbed Erin by her arm and pulled her with her down the hallway. They bypassed the bathroom and went straight into the small room that was Winter's. She slammed the door and locked it then went to the open window and jumped out, landing on the fire escape.

"Come on" Winter whisper shouted at Erin as she pulled the girl out through the window. Winter pulled her up the stairs and up to the roof then dunked behind an air vent and took her hunting knife from her belt. The weapon felt natural in Winter's hand as she waited for whatever happened next.

|| Point of View: Second in Command of Firefly base stationed in Washington, Kellan Mason ||

One of there scouts had spotted the girl. The Cure. That little brat had been causing problems for them since day one. Why was she so hard to find? Damn it! But atleast Captain Hoss Black would be happy his search is over.

What pissed Kellan off was the fact that they spotted the girl entering Smuggler territory. How that group of bastards always seemed to get the upper hand on them without even trying always served to steam Kellan up. He isn't a patient man so the moment they found the girl they made their move. Getting a group of fifteen fireflies, all heavily armed, Kellan kicked down the door to the Smuggler's main base and his fellow fireflies stormed in.

"Round up everyone, you all have the list of people to keep alive then rest not on the list just shoot them" Kellan ordered. Before anyone could do anything the fireflies had rounded up Jim, Adey and Erik. They had shot the rest of the smuggler's and had the three alive one's on their knees, hands tied behind their backs and guns pointed at their heads. Kellan frowned.

"Sir, Winter Duke can't be found in the building and the Cure isn't here neither, she must be with Duke" a firefly reported to Kellan.

"Smart little bitch got out once she heard once, get these assholes in the trucks we will take them to Mr.Black" Kellan ordered. He had been studying these Smuggler's for a long time and he knew Winter Duke would do anything to get her comrades back. So with that thought he and the rest of the fireflies took the four smuggler's and took them out of the safe zone and to Hoss Black. The sun was rising by the time they reached the area he and his scout were staying in.

He had thought he was safe. These people had taken him in and fed him and given him a place to sleep and only a short while later people had come after him again. They had burst through the door Erik had been sleeping near. He'd woken almost instantly and in a daze had managed to squeeze off about five shots before he was rushed and kicked into submission. He wasn't sure if he'd gotten any but he hoped he had. After thinking it was ok to feel safe and then almost instantly being plunged right back into the cruelty of the world he was sinking deeper into himself, right back into a creature that was almost feral in nature. When they started tying his hands behind his back he started to buck and struggle again until one of the guards kicked him in the kidneys.

He had been captured once, it'd hadn't be exactly a barrel of laughs then, he was pretty sure it wouldn't have gotten any better. He had been tortured last time, you could see it , cuts and burns all down his chest and back. As soon as hey separated them and put them in vans he started hyperventilating, He and Jim got put in one van and Addie and another man got put in another. He started getting tunnel vision. All he could feel was this beast writhing somewhere deep in his stomach. It was there just seething and angry, spitting mouthfuls of hate through it's teeth like blood. All he could hear was it's voice 'Kill them, Kill Them, KILL THEM!'

He didn't know what was going to happen to them. What he did know was that if anyone hurt Addie he was going to kill someone and only god knew what happened next.

I'm terrified of the day that I will welcome death with open arms.





As soon as the sound of the door getting kicked in reached her ears, Adey abandoned her cooking and pulled a gun from her belt. She wasn't sure what was happening and her first instinct was infected, but something about the rounds of gunshots told her otherwise. On a whim, she pushed her pocket knife down her jeans, hoping that it wouldn't be visible to whatever invading force this was. Trying to keep both entrances in her field of vision, she called Alex's name. She tried to stay quiet so she wouldn't alert the intruders to their position, but she added force that she hoped would wake him up. Checking if Alex had heard her tore her eyes away from the doors for only a second, but it was enough.

A large man burst into the room and used his momentum to push her against the wall. In surprise at the air rushing from her lungs, she dropped her gun. Instinctively, she reached for the other, but was quickly stopped as the man twisted her arm behind her back and took the second gun from her belt. He kicked the pistol that she had dropped to the far side of the room. She attempted to twist out of his grasp, but only succeeded in setting her shoulder alight with pain.

The man's grip of steel felt as though it was crushing her wrist as he pulled her away from the wall. "ALEX!" she shouted this time as her panic was setting in. The short word was the only things she managed before she was forced to the ground. Feeling the weight of the man as he trapped her legs beneath him, she continued to struggle as he tied her hands, though, it was a lot less hopeful than it had been before.

As though realizing for the first time how much stronger than she this man was, she gasped as she was lifted and carried out into the darkness. Shots rang through the camp as the other people she had called friends were gunned down. Being thrown into the back of a truck reminded Adey of the pain in her shoulder. A few tears escaped her eyes, but they were indiscernible from the sweat that covered her skin.

"Here's the deal: I'm not easy to get along with, and I'm sensing you're a bit of a bitch"




"Jimmy go suck an egg and Alex shove your rules up your ass alongside that 7 foot pole!"

Jim stepped had stepped away from the stove to let Adey cook when Winters lovely remark echoed down the stairs, "I swear," he muttered clenching his fist, "Don't use so much damn seasoning this time," he snapped at Adey, he started to leave the kitchen and stopped, un-clenching his fist he took a deep breath and turned back to the young girl, "My stomach isn't the same.." he added in a nicer tone. It never worked well to take frustration out on those who did not deserve it. "I am go-" he stopped talking as a loud thud sounded through out the house. The front door burst open, Jim's military instinct knew and threat when he saw one and then men entering the house was exactly that. "WINTER!" he yelled pulling his knife from his belt, he went after the thug closet to him, grabbing him in a headlock he quickly cut his throat. He heard gunshots from the kitchen, meaning people were coming in from the back. Jim went back to the room, still listening for gunfire from upstairs. One man had Adey pinned to the wall, as he moved to pull the guy off him another tried to take down the large man by jumping on his back.

Jim quickly flipped him over himself and used his knee to break the mans arm before knocking him out with a strong punch to the face. This move left his side open for another person to hit him hard in the side with a baseball bat. The it knocked the wind out of him and he rolled to the side to avoid another hit. Bat boy was bringing the bat down, this time aiming for his head, Jim quickly reached up and caught the bat, the young man underestimated his opponents strength and a few seconds later lay on the floor with a nasty concussion. He spun to take on the attacker behind him, but was met by the recieving end of a shotgun barrel pointed at his face, realizing he needed to give up Jim slowly dropped the bat and raised his hands. "Aim is a little shaky, boy," he said to the Firefly. The man did not seemed amused and decided to ram the but of his rifle into Jim's face. That of course felt lovely.

"Round up everyone, you all have the list of people to keep alive then rest not on the list just shoot them"

Jim heard someone say this as he was being lead outside, his hands bound tightly behind his back, "Wait, no!"he yelled, but he heard several shots, then a scream from what sounded like Kennedy, then a final shot. Jim gritted his teeth, a muscle in his jaw jumping. Those people had been innocent, hell if this was some military exercise then they all were innocent. "Sir, Winter Duke can't be found in the building and the Cure isn't here neither, she must be with Duke" Jim's eyes narrowed, now realizing who these men worked for. "Smart little bitch got out once she heard once, get these assholes in the trucks we will take them to Mr.Black"

He knew Winter was still in the area, and it sounded like the Fireflies had planned on ambushing them and taking them by surprise, but two people got away. As they loaded them into separate trucks he glanced around trying to see any sign of where Winter would be but the girl was smart. She knew how to hide, he just hoped she stayed hidden. He was forced into the truck, sitting across from Erik and the guard assigned to them. Majority of the trip he glared at the guard, but then he noticed Erik's breathing had increased, Jim had seen the same thing happen to scared Grunts on their first tour of duty. "I need you to breath," Jim said looking at Erik, "You will be no use to me freaking out like a fucking bitch,"

His words seemed to get through to the young man, "We will get out of this, and when we do," he looked back to the guard, "I swear I will skin each and everyone of you sons of bitches," with that he went back to being quiet and thinking.

"Jimmy go suck an egg and Alex shove your rules up your ass alongside that 7 foot pole!"

Alex didn't bother with another witty remark. It was nice to just sit down for the moment. He closed his eyes though sleep had not taken him, and he could hear what everyone else was doing. The hustling and bustling to get dinner done and just go to sleep for the night, Kennedy moving to the garage, and Erik sleeping. All had passed rather peacefully now. For the moment, there was nothing to worry about, it seemed. Until the door was shot open.

Armed men piled through the door in front and back. His head shooting straight up, and his eyes wide, Alex could do nothing but stay there as a man approached with a gun aimed straight at his heart.

"Oh shit dude, hold the fuck up!" Alex yelled in a panic, holding his hands up much like a criminal being arrested. He was promptly yanked from his feet as Jim struggled to fight back in the kitchen. Being warded out onto the sidewalk, he was shoved into the wall of the building and onto his knees. He kept his hands clasped behind his head as he was held hostage at gunpoint; he could only imagine what sort of a stir this would cause with the military. Maybe this was the military. Some moments of suspense passed as he awaited their next move. He could here Winter's name being used by one of them. Alex picked his head up to look around, and he was shoved back down under the attacker's foot.

The invaders began putting some of the smugglers on the truck. How they even got the truck in the quarantine zone, if they weren't military, was but a mystery. It seemed they didn't recognize Alex, and wasn't sure what to do with him.

"Round up everyone, you all have the list of people to keep alive then rest not on the list just shoot them."

At that instant, he concluded this was not the military. The barrel of a handgun was put to the back of his head; now was the time to act, or never. Swiftly, he ducked his head just under the barrel of the gun as his executioner fired a shot, taking hairs off his scalp. Reaching back just slightly, his right hand met the one of the man behind. Pulling the joined hands forward and twisting his attacker's wrist, Alex forced him to let go and took the handgun as a weapon now. The disarming lasted all of four seconds, the yelp of the Firefly the only indicator that something had gone wrong.

Standing, Alex turned about face to fire a round into his executioner's head, then subsequently fired at a Firefly guarding the entrance to the back of the truck. Two more at the door of the building turned and picked up their assault rifles. Not having time for a prolonged engagement, Alex darted into the alley in the side of the building, hoping to run into Winter. There was no telling what these people were doing, or how they came to know the names and faces of the people in the building. All of it seemed... unsettling.

"Winter, where are you!?"

Everything happened in a blur. The crashing noise, then her being dragged out of the window. It took her awhile to snap out of it, but when she did she finally realized what was happening.
'Fireflies..' She cursed silently to herself as she ran along side Winter. They found her... but how!? 'Im sure I left no trace.. Im so sure..!' She could of punched something out of frustration. But the stealth was their only hope..

She sighed quietly.
A while back Erin found a way to sneak away from the damn FF, the ones who took her away after finding out she was a cure, and she was.. fine until now. 'So how?!' Feeling her eyes water up, she peered at the women beside her who was looking around for any threats. She tugged at her own hair out of frustration.

Great, now she had them involved too.. The one who was willing to help her. She bit her lower lip. Looking around, she began to count of her options like she usually did. She needed to get away from them.. if she did maybe the FF would leave them alone and not put their dictatorship upon them. But seeing how the area was surrounded she couldn't help but remain there..
Silently she whispered- barely audible. "Im.. sorry. Im.. so sorry"
With that, she looked away and crossed her arm. The guilt was bad and was eating out of her alive. 'I need to get out of here...' she thought to herself... determined.

Jims words cut through the red haze filling his mind. slowing his breathing and calming him down. He stopped panicking, took a couple deep breaths and the beast peaked out from behind his eyes. It looked around, it took what it saw, it processed, information became ammunition. They were sitting down facing each other in the back of the truck. Two guards were in there also with them and two in the front seat. They had pistols and two had long arms. Their hands were tied in front of them. The Beast saw this and remembered, a time would come when it would be useful.

The grin he directed at Jim was feral, his teeth bloodstained from a split lip. "Have you been captured before?" Jim nodded once, just a quick jerk of the head. Erik nodded back, you didn't ask a man what went on, it was enough that you knew."Better hold fast"

The trucks stopped. Erik had no idea where they were, but they were here. The guards got out of the car pushing Jim and Erik in front of them. As they got out Erick pretended to stumble and when the guard leaned down to pull him back up Erik whipped his head back into the guards face breaking his nose and then rushed the guard in front of him. The guard was right in the middle of spinning around to see what happened. He was off balance, startled by the sudden yell from behind. Erik took advantage of this bull rushing him and aiming a stomping kick straight to the guard knee which promptly collapsed. There was no finesse to this technique, just sheer brutality and efficiency. As the man went down he kicked him in the face as he went by. About that time the guards by Jim had caught up and he felt a blow across the back. He went down hard, got kicked a couple times for his trouble and beaten fairly cruelly. That was how he came to find himself bloody, bruised and semi conscious tossed back between Addie and Jim

I'm terrified of the day that I will welcome death with open arms.





Riding alone in the back of a truck with a heavily armed stranger was certainly a terrifying experience. He kept his eyes locked on Adey, watching for any attempt to escape. Adey mean while, had her eyes on her feet, terrified out of her wits. Infected, she could handle, a man twice her size with a fully loaded weapon, she could not. She'd already staged an escape once tonight and the throbbing pain in her shoulder was an unfortunate casualty. Attempting to gauge the severeness of the injury, she tried to raise her arm, but quickly abandoned the mission with a hiss of pain.

A slight cough brought her attention back to the man with the gun. For a small second, she thought she saw sympathy in his eyes. A surge of confidence boosted the young woman. "Where are you taking me?" As though it had been an illusion, the look was gone and he returned to his stoic posture. "You don't have to..." She hesitated. Adey had yet to figure out what was going on, let alone who these people were that murdered her family and desecrated her home. With a lilt to her voice, she continued, "You don't have to do this. You can let me go. Let us go." She hoped that other Smugglers had survived. Despite her pleas, he made no move to free her, though he seemed to have lost the ability to look at her. Adey leaned forward, wincing as she felt the pinch of the pocket knife she had taken residence at the top of her thigh. She played the pain off as though her shoulder was bothering her, which wasn't difficult.

She didn't have long to formulate a plan that involved her pocket knife, for almost immediately after she rediscovered the tool, they had arrived at their destination and she was being dragged from the car. To her relief and then subsequent horror, she was soon able to spot Erik and Jim ahead, with their own platoon of guards. To her surprise, Erik made a break for it. He was an animal, seeming to fight on instinct alone. It didn't take long for him to be overtaken, but those short minutes were enough for Adey to develop a slight fear of Erik. She'd under estimated him while he was exhausted, but it was clear he knew how to fight and could do some damage.

Once Blondie had been returned to his place with Jim and Adey, her medic instincts kicked in and she looked him over. Her shoulder and blackened wrist were no match for the shape Erik was in. She tried to muster an encouraging smile, but it turned out as more of a grimace. "That was a good try. Can you feel if anything is broken?" She leaned her head forward a little and found Jim's eyes, "Jim?" There wasn't anything she could do at the moment, but she couldn't help but ask.

We are born. We die. Somewhere in between we live. And how we live is up to us.




Winter watch the scene unfold from beneath her perch on the roof. She watched as those bastard fireflies took and shot the smuggler’s. They were killing her family! How dare they! As she watched the tail end of the truck disappear from her line of sight only one primal thought ran through her mind.

‘They will all die’


She knew there were still firefly men in the building, most likely searching for any survivor’s. She needed to get off this roof, she was useless from up here.

“Come on” she growled coldly at Erin, her temper starting to get the best of her as an aura of bloodlust seemed to emit from every pore in her body. At the moment she was a force not to be reckoned with.
She kept her hunting knife in her right hand and took ahold of Erin’s arm in her other, practically dragging the girl to the fire escape. She then lifted the small girl over her shoulder and ignored any protest as she swiftly climbed down in the alley. Even though Winter wasn’t physical strong she was fast and agile and at the moment was being driven by a primitive need to kill and that fluid her body enough so that she didn’t even really feel Erin on her shoulder. Once her feet were firmly planted on the crack concrete she put Erin down. Winter heard her name being called and turned around to see Alex. She felt her cold steely glare soften slightly as she saw he was okay. Atleast some survived. She took Erin’s arm again, this time not so hard, and dragged her over to Alex.

“Alex this is Erin watch her I’ll be right back” Winter said sternly as she let go of Erin and walked out of the alley, leaving the two behind. She could feel her rage start to overtake again as she entered the house. She walked straight towards a firefly, his back turn to her, lifted her hunting knife and slashed his neck making him fall to her feet as blood gushed from the wound. Not stopping there Winter made quick work of the other Fireflies in the building, dodging melee attacks and rounds of bullets. Of course she got grazed a few times, its hard not to when bullets are constantly being shot at you but it still took her no time at all to finish off the Fireflies that stayed behind and grabbed everyone’s backpacks. She then went up to her room and grabbed her backpack and weapons. She sadly couldn’t grab everyone’s weapons cause it would be far to heavy but she made sure to stuff a few extra pistols and ammo in her pack. She knew there were weapons in the other’s backpack but its just a precaution. Once Winter grabbed everything she went back out to where she left Erin and Alex. She tossed Alex his pack and gun and give Erin her backpack. Winter then kneeled down so she and Erin were eye to eye and held out a pistol.

“This is a 9mm pistol with a silencer, its got no safety and the magazine is full and all you basically do is point and shoot but Erin listen I am giving this to you for emergencies only so unless you really need it keep it hidden” Winter said sternly then handed the gun to Erin and stood up straight.

“We’ll take the horses and track the bastards to their location, lets go” Winter ordered and started towards the underground tunnels that would lead them outside. Winter whistled and moments later Shadow, Lugnut and Bear joined them, their fur on edge as they took a protective stance beside Winter.

“Erin you will take my horse Dusty, Alex you take Smitty and I’ll take Ash and tie Raine and Red to me so they follow since we can’t take any vehicle’s the horses are the best form of transportation”
Winter said as they walked through the tunnels. It didn’t take them long to get to the abandoned stable just outside of the city. She then loaded the other’s packs on Red and tied the two horses to Ash’s saddle. She helped Erin get on Dusty and put a saddle on Smitty for Alex before climbing up on Ash.

“Alright lets get going, boys find Jim” Winter said to the dogs and they instantly got to work sniffing out the trail to the Fireflies location.

"I'm having trouble finding a couple of my ribs" he said to Addie who had inquired after his health. They weren't actually broken but if he couldn't keep morale up here then they were all going to be in trouble. He had to keep the tone light and make her forget what was going on. Jim he knew was a soldier, but he worried about Addie. He didn't know if she'd been captured before but he knew that there were things that could happen to her that would break him. He didn't mind, he had no loyalty to anyone in the group but her.

At that point there seemed to be some small commotion and discussion amongst the Fireflies. He didn't know what it was, all he knew was that he had very little gas left in the tank. If he had to sell his life, he would sell it dearly buying time for these people to escape. "Duty is as heavy as a mountain, Death, as light as a feather" he muttered. Addie gave him a funny look.

Addie smiled at the exhausted man in front of her. Her nerves were frayed and it was beginning to take a toll on her mood. Despite how well she had been keeping her composure, it was rapidly becoming clear that this was the first time she'd been in a situation like this. However, she knew what people were capable of. With a heavy heart and a little fear in her eyes, she went about trying to make herself as small and unnoticeable as possible. It was a lost cause, she knew, but made her feel better regardless.

"Maybe, you should refrain from doing anything like that again." She lightened the mood with a laugh at the end, but it was clear she was serious. She knew enough about medicine to know he was in a bad way. "They don't look like they're in a very good mood and you might not survive it." The guards seemed tense and irritable, not how you want your captors to feel.

She leaned her head back against the wall behind her and closed her eyes. The fear was bubbling up just under the surface of her psyche. What would become of her?
