"I felt fear for the last time."

0 · 358 views · located in Arizona, Research facicilaty

a character in “There Is No Escape”, as played by Asper

Description

Name: Enkidu

Age: 19

Type: Mutant

description: A crystal body at a height of 5'11 ft
Image

mutation: When his body crystallized and fell apart he discovered he was able to rebuild it. Right now his only psionic ability is to communicate to others telepathically. Because of the nature of his body he does not need to eat, drink, breathe, or sleep. However he must rest at times in order to keep up control over his body.

personality: Enkidu is logical, emotionally distant, and naive to the ways of society in the world. Though he often seem dispassionate, when a strong emotion seizes him, he experiences it powerfully. For example, Enkidu does not get annoyed; he becomes enraged.

History: Enkidu was not his original name, when he was being experimented on his body began to slowly crystallize and fall apart. When it had fully fallen apart they thought he was dead, several days later however the crystal began to come together to form a humanoid body. His memory however did not come back.

weaknesses: Weak against those with strong willed minds. Or powerful offensive capabilities.

Fears: He does not fear much of anything, believing he has no need to be in fear.

Equipment: None

So begins...

Enkidu sat within his cell, watching the daily lives of experiments go by like his own. Yet so different, he watched as syringes were shoved into their arms and they were shoved into cages built differently then his own. He wondered what it felt like to have a needle pierce your own flesh, he did not receive the same treatment. He was feared by many of the scientist, he was very.. 'different' from them. His cell was built differently then the cages, it did not have bars to let him stick his 'arms' through. Those things that called themselves humans, by the way that they talked. He had once been like them, so.. 'soft' and weak. Maybe he had once felt emotion so frequently as them, but with every passing day. He was growing more distant, more uninterested. Only intrigued by his own existence. He watched as one of them tried to escape, why were they trying to get out? What could be out there that was any more interesting then this bleak room.

Sari raised her head and stood up as the boy stopped with groaning of pain and attacked the scientist. Hope seemed to fill her eyes that moment, human hope, not animal hope. She turned in her cage and pawed at the bars, wanting to get out of here, although she liked the safety of the cage. She soon gave up and watched the boy go, and her hope was gone again, and she was back to her animal spirit self. She sighed and whined, then laid down and rested her head on her hands, just like a dog would rest its head on its paws. She had found hope when the boy escaped, but her hope was gone now. She wouldn't be a human ever again, but just this, animal locked in human form it seemed. She looked at another cell, it was different, and cocked her head slightly. She pawed at the bars, before sighing.

Sari had laid back down and her head was resting on her hands, until something entered her mind, a voice it seemed, a male voice even. It said it was the person from the different cell, and she raised her head to look into the direction of the boy. A dog-like grin seemed to.appear on her face. She nodded at him, to show him she understood.

Sari cocked her head. The man was led outside and bound with steel. She pawed at the bars and walked a few circles in the cage as she watched him leave, than laid down and sighed. She looked at her scales and an idea broke up in her mind, and she could try, but not now, it would be too risky. She watched the man return to his cell and sat up, looking more like a dog. She pawed at the bars again and cocked her head, hoping they hadn't hurt him like they were hurting her.

Sari cocked her head and watched the scientist. She looked at the man curiously, and as he spoke, she was surprised. He could control minds! Then he asked her about outside, and it made her unsure. She had only been three when she came here, so she didn't even know what was outside, but hearing from others, it seemed better than this place. -'Don't know Outside. Was three when here, can't remember. Humans say freedom. Don't know freedon is. Don't know anything. Can hardly talk. Don't know.'- More animal like her thoughts were, and you could really say she was almost animal. She watched a scientist approach her and became scared. It was holding a needle, needle hurt her. She pawed at the bars and sat in a corner, scared.

Sari looked into the direction of the man and watched him taking control of the scientist. A small smile spread across her face, that was very kind of him. She pawed at the bars and smiled faintly. No one had ever done such a thing for her, no one, and now someone stopped the scientist from hurting her. -'Thank.'- The human/animal creature thought, hoping he'd heard her. She looked at him, waiting for a responce.

Sari watched another girl break free, and cocked her head. She was unsure. She didn't like this place, but she was scared to leave her cage for something unknown. She felt safe in the cage, like nothing bad could happen. Maybe she wanted to stay here, and let the scientists just do as they pleased. She wouldn't know what else to do really. At that moment, she heard glass breaking. She looked at the man as he took the keys from the scientist and opened her cage. Her head low, she sniffed him first, then took a few steps outside, even though she was scared. Another thing, she walked with hand and feet, like chimpansees, or gorillas. She looked at the crystal man, than at Huntress, before looking back at Crystal Man. -'Scared. Cage safe. Maybe me stay.'- She looked back at the cage, than at Crystal Man.

Alex's eyes opened and she was back in her small cage. The cold seeped into her skin and she still shook and shake from the pain she was just through. She curled up in a ball and the tears started to flow. She needed to get out of this place. Needed to. She looked glumly at the scraps of food that occupied her food dish. SHe ate them hungrily. Wow was she hungry. She lifted the plate up to lick it clean, and something clattered to the ground. She looked around to make sure no scientists came over and she looked at what dropped. A syringe filled with orange liquid. She clenched it in her hand. If only she could make it disappear, for she couldn't hide it on her person, not in her tattered dress type robe. She closed her eyes. Some experiments showed she could turn other things invisible, but she never tried. SHe concentrated hard and gripped the syringe. Suddenly it disappeared. She grinned and placed it back under the food dish. Those scientists will pay. The next one that comes in here won't know what's coming. She grinned and started to formulate a plan.

Someone's thoughts pressed into her mind. She looked over at the mutant in the special cage. The Rock, as she called him. His mind almost called out to her. The Rock said something to the animal thing. Even though it wasn't directed toward her, she could read it loud and clear. Maybe she could communicate back. SHe focused on the mind, and pushed into his. It was like, well, pushing on a hard rock. She pushed and suddenly it gave way, she thought to him -Can you hear me? I heard what you said to the animal thing.- Than she exited his mind and tried to test it out on scientists. They were much easier to break through. But she wan't to try something different. she grabbed hold of his thoughts and inserted her own. -you want to walk to that cage.- The scientist sort of narrowed his eyes and shook his head. she pushed harder, and urged him forward. -You will walk to that cage.- The scientists didn't hesitate and walked to the cage beside her. -now you will open the cage.- In a daze, the scientist opened the cage. -now you will climb into the cage.- The scientist climbed in. -now you will close the door.- The scientist pulled the door closed and it locked with a click. She almost laughed, and let go of his mind. The scientist looked around and widened his eyes. he tried to open the cage door, but it was locked tight. -Why in the blazes am i in her- She laughed at his thoughts, and pealed with laughter as he started yelling for help. She grinned and lay back in her cage.

I will escape. I will finally escape.

Everything was going haywire. The Rock was escaping, and apparently helping the animal thing. If she wanted to escape, now was her time. Scientists were running into the hallway, obviously alarmed by the noise going on. She grasped the nearest one with her mind. He walked over to her and unlocked her cage. She jumped out, grasping the syringe and punched him in the face. "That if for all the times you hurt me." SHe turned invisible and closed her cage, so it looked like she was still in it, just invisible. She released the scientist's mind and he walked off a little dazed.

She sneaked past the scientists running toward The Rock and the animal thing. She creeped down the hallway to find two guards by the door. There was no way to get past them, without alerting them. She tried to enter one of their minds, but it was very hard. When she finally got in she couldn't persuade him to move away from the door. The guard just grunted and shifted his feet. Maybe she could only control week minds. She will have to work on that, but for now she needed a way out. She remember the syringe in her hand and quietly thanked Crimson for giving her one. She stabbed the first guard and injected some of the liquid, and while the other guard held up his tranquilizer dart gun in confusion. She watched the guard writhe on the floor in pain. Yes. That is how it feels you scumbag. She injecting the rest of the liquid into the other guard. She stepped over the bodies in pain and ran out the door.

THe sunlight hit her and she squinted into it. Already guards were running out and she ran too. She ran and her feet hit rock and sand. She kept running even though she was exhausted. She continued running and didn't stop to rest. She needed to get as far away from that piece of crap as she could. She finally had to stop from exhaustion. She soon realized she had no food, no water, and no fire. Suddenly a faint voice touched her mind. She ran forward, panting. the thoughts became louder, and as she walked out from behind a large boulder, the thoughts were clear as crystal. She turned back to normal and stepped forward.

"Crimson."

Jerome entered the containment room and what layed before him nearly caused him to show an emotion.

There was one scientist in a cage and three mutants were out of their cages. He recogized two instantly...Sari and Enkidu. He was surprised that Enkidu was out. Endiku was a mellow character, the only mutant that hasn't put up a fight with the scientists. It appears he made a friend, Sari. Sari had been here from the moment he arrived. She and Enkidu were the least problemsome subjects. I guess people change...The third one was a mystery to him...probably brand new, he thought.

"There's been a breach!" he spoke in his com,"All scientists report to the containment room immediately. He pulled out his tranquilizer dart and shot the three, knowing that each dart would cause them to sleep. It was charged with a high sleep medicine so the effects would be instant. Even Enkidu would be affected, despite his crystal form. At that time, the scientists arrived. "Clean those bodies up and put them back in their cages. Put Enkidu in the solitary confinement cage. It's the only safe place left." The scientists went to work. The solitary confinement cage was at the very end, it's own room of it's own. It was made of metal and had no openings of any kind. It was the only place for him until they fixed his cage.

He went over to the scientist in the cage, opening it up. He was careful about Alex, since she could be invisible and sneak out. He grabbed the scientist and yanked him out, locking the cage behind him. "What happened," he asked. The scientist began stammering,"W-well...I-I guess that...well you see it's just the funniest thing...I-I...Subject three may be...she's gone...escaped." He slapped the scientist, then tossed him to the ground. I'll have to tell Theresa to look for TWO escaped mutants, he thought. Crimson, another blank face he didn't really know, was the first. Maybe Theresa had her hands full, he thought. He decided to meet up with her and go hunting with her as well. He grabbed his tranquilizer sniper and left the building, looking for Theresa.

"Unfortunately, the only place I can think of that's like that is the solitary confinement room, and that place is already occupied," Jerome puzzled over the situation out loud, then decided to do it anyway," Actually, Brenda, let's put them in the solitary confinement room. The room is bugged so we can hear and see anything they do. They can't plan without us knowing." And with that, he walked in between the two limp bodies of Subject 3 and Subject 17. A half hour later, they arrived at the facility. "Now..." he instructed the ones carrying the subjects,"You all may know Subject 5. The crystal one. He's gone rogue for some reason, so be careful when you open the door. Only open it a slight crack and push the bodies in. Don't waste a single second." They did as instructed, tossing Subject 3 and 17 into the Solitary confinement room, then sealing the door once again. He turned to Brenda and motioned to her foot. "You might want to go bandage that. I've got a meeting with Theresa so don't bother me for now." He went up to his office and waited for Theresa to arrive.

Crimson groaned and opened his eyes. He was on a familiar cold floor. "Ugh..." he moaned as he realized that they were captive again. He got up slowly...and found they were in a different room. This wasn't the room with the cages...this room was slightly larger than that...but only slightly. He found that there were no openings inside and the only way in or out was a door. He tried the door and found that it was locked. Figures...he sighed and turned around to find Rocky in there too. He was awake as ever, but when you're a crystal, it's not like you're going to sleep when you're comprised of rocks. He also found Goner, still asleep, on the floor in front of him.

((Sorry if this is god-moding a little....but i can't really phrase it any other way.))

Two scientists talked outside the solitary confinement room. "We need to get the mind control out of her. If we do that she can be placed back into a normal cage." One scientist said. "How are we going to get her out though?" He replied. "Sedate them all and grab her before the affects wear off on Subject 27. His internal system quickly burns off the sedate.". "Fine, good thing we installed those user operated tranquilizer dart gun, mounted to the wall." The scientist called another one over and the two waited outside the door, while the other went into the control room.

Alex woke up and stretched. She was in a room with Crimson and the rock. He pressed her palms to her head. What have I done? Suddenly she heard a loud and unmistakable ziiiiit! behind her. She turned to see a tranquilizer dart in Crimson's neck. Another ziiiiit! and a tranquilizer dart appeared in the rock's heart, or whatever that rock thing might have. She heard one more ziiiiit! and she slumped to the ground. Two scientists dashed in as the world swam and hazed, and trapped her, dragging her out.

Crimson looked around. He'd already tried to talk to Rocky, but he wasn't answering. Maybe rocks did sleep, he thought. He pounded on the door again, but again, it didn't magically, like his imagination wanted it too, open. He turned as movement behind him alerted him. He found Goner waking up and pressing her palms to her head. He was about to speak when he felt something hit his neck and he was out like a light.

A few moments later, he came to again. He found Goner gone and Rocky still there, still immobile. He once again slammed his fist on the door. Once again, the door didn't open. C'mon imagination, open the door, he thought.

Brenda heard commotion. What now. She walked to the holding rooms and saw mutants running free. Oh god not again. She signaled the alarm and ran toward the nearest ones, Miss disappear and the Crimson guy. The crystal thing was also lumbering out of the solitary confinement room. She took out her gun and fired. She missed, too far away. She also saw another thing....flying. She turned the gun toward her, a closer target, and fired. Two missed but one lodged itself into her shin. She grinned in triumph as guard rushed into the holding chambers. I'm not useless after all.

Brenda snarled at the crystal thing. Good thing guards were already coming in. The started shooting, they got the weird animal thing, and also Crimson and Disapear. The bird girl was nowhere in sight. she glared and shot at the arm with her gun. It released her and she dodged the crystal things that came zipping past her. A tranquilizer dart hit the crystal thing, but it soon regained consciousness. All hell was breaking loose, and worse, Jerome came stomping down the stairs with Theresa and SERGEANT BROWN? HE is going to be mad.

Sergeant Brown heard the alarms going off and he knocked harder on the door. He and an army looking woman came out. They all dashed down the stairs to see a horrifying sight. His perfect aim caught each of the mutants, with a tranquilizer dart. He turned to Jerome ready to speak, but one of them moved again. Confused, he fired again. "JEROME! WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON!?"

Brenda shrieked and dove out of the way, but a few shards sliced her legs and she screamed in pain. She dragged herself to cover and fired, hitting the strange mass of crystals. She ducked low as more sharp crystals flew over her head, nicking her ear.

Allaire kept going no matter what. She always thought flying would be so cool....well its cool except not when you are running for your life. She thought. Allaire was debating whether to go to Phoenix or not. She didnt even know if the others had made it. She kept on going. "Where am i going anyways.." She muttered, then got an idea. Maybe invisible girl, or crystal man could still hear her thoughts! Are you guys ok?? Can you hear me? Are you alright?! Allaire thought. Desperately hoping for an answer.

Sergeant Brown was furious. He pointed a gun at The crystal thing. "I'm not willing to negotiate." He fired, a tranquilizer dart lodged into the crystal, and obviously, he squeezed before he fell to the ground. He motioned to the guards. "Quick, before he wakes up, put him in the solitary confinement chamber." The guards shoved him in and locked it. The other guards put the rest of the mutants back in their cages. "Right, well, since Jerome is clearly unable to do his job right, I might visit a little more often. Hey you there!" he pointed to a scientist. "Get me a bunch of syringes full of something that will hurt." The scientist scurried off and returned awhile later with a bunch of syringes.

He took one and walked to the Brenda. "You, get a syringe for being so stupid as to get caught up in a mutant." Brenda gasped and clutched her ribs. He took the syringe and injected it into her. She screamed out in pain. He walked to the next little mutt, a crimson colored kid. "You, get a syringe for escaping, and as I noticed, breaking Jerome's sniper rifle." He injected it and the pain on the crimson kid was instant. He walked to the next one, the tricky one that disappeared. "You, get a syringe for also escaping." he injected it and she screamed out. "You get a second syringe for aiding the escape of those two," pointing to the crimson kid and the solitary confinement chambers. He injected another and the girl writhed and yelped, screaming. He moved onto the last mutant, the cause of it all. " you, get exactly four syringes, for helping escape four mutants." He injected them one after the other. "Now, as for scientists, you will always walk in at least groups of three. The guard will be doubled and I will visit at least once a week."

He turned toward Theresa and jerome. I want both of you scouting the skies with helicopters for that bird girl. Get on it. Pronto.

Allaire had now pretty much walked through the entire city. If she hadn't seen any of them now, then they probably didnt make it.. Allaire decided to try to contact invisible girl again and again. Are you guys ok?? did you make it?? Did they capture you guys?? Allaire thought over and over hoping maybe she or crystal man could hear her. She was desperate to know if they had made it or not. The question was almost eating her alive. Should she go back? Should she wait a little longer? What should she do?
