Setting

You wake up in a room on the first floor. If you kick the door down, there are 2 rooms to the left, and 3 to the right. They are identical to the room you were captured in, except they are empty.

There are stairs at the end of the corridor. Down those stairs are 6 doors either side. Left: living room, library, diner. Right: office full of papers, empty room, kitchen.

The living room has red sofas and a huge TV that has been smashed.
The library has a lot of books about the development of weapons.
The diner has a long table, and all the chairs have chains that wrap around the ankles and wrists.
The office has a lot of papers. Bank papers, mostly.
The empty room. It's empty.
The kitchen is the clean part of the house. It has food, too. Eggs. Like, a million eggs. Hope you like eggs.

"I'd... I'd suggest you.. answer our questions... Please." John addressed Lexi very formally. His voice sounded more feeble and pathetic than he remembered. "It... It seems you're the only one who wasn't... in the room with us. A-And so... how did you get out? The d-door... It was locked." John stopped talking abruptly, trying not to test her patience or overstep his mark. He shrunk back into his shell afterwards, avoiding eye contact and glancing up at Ainsley to see if he would back him up.

Lexi smirked. "Why should I tell you? I have reasons." CJ spoke from the doorway. "Because Ainsley has your weapon." Ainsley was a bit too busy to back John up. He was looking at the knife carefully, to see what evidence it has.
"Is this because I'm a girl?" Lexi asked then. "Because I wasn't in the stupid room because I'm a girl. And you are all male," she shivered. She didn't want to keep the secret she was keeping much longer. "Um...you have to work the riddles out first!" she blurted out. Ainsley couldn't find anything, apart from blood, on the knife, and handed it silently back to Lexi. After all, it could be someone else's. Lexi might not have done it.

John looked alarmed, watching Ainsley give it back but didn't say a thing. He nodded to CJ and gave him a curt smile. "You... You weren't in the room with us..." He looked back at the girl, but at her feet not her face. He was far to shy to address her correctly. "A-as the door was locked. The door was di-difficult for the three of us ne-ne-nevermind a girl on her own.. You ha-have no blood on your face... We solved the a-ana-anagram, 'Join The Society'. What m-more is there?"

He didn't have much more to say, just began shrinking back more and more, visibly terrified of Lexi. He'd never encountered any girl like her before, with such a remarkably threatening spirit. He found it harder to steady his voice.

"It isn't locked if you have the key?" Lexi held up a collection of keys and keyrings on a large silver loop. 'Are they supposed to be this smart?' she thought.
"Hey, John, take a breath. You're brave, sticking up like that," Ainsley whispered, squeezing his hand. The poor guy looked like he needed a hand.
"Right, okay, looks like you guys need some help. 'Join The Society'. That's right. But you'll need some help. What do I get in return?" Lexi smiled. She loved sly deals. They always ended up with Lexi getting the better deal.

John smiled weakly at Ainsley but it didn't reach the eyes. "Thank you." He breathed, nodding. He didn't like the smile on her lips. Not one bit. But then another thought struck him. "Why did you have the keys?" He breathed slowly and talked even slower, just to make sure that voice didn't wobble. Ainsley had his back, that gave him some relief. "Why aren't you captive like us!" Something else filled his eyes and his voice, something fierce and angry. "You're... helping t-t-this... society!!!" John started to stammer again but realized he was making eye contact with Lexi, glaring almost. Something he'd never done before. He'd also stepped closer.

CJ looked just as annoyed as John then. He didn't say a word about it, which surprised Ainsley. CJ was a mouthy guy. Lexi looked pretty shocked. 'Oh hell. Why are they smart?!' she thought. Ainsley felt like strangling Lexi. He didn't even know where his little siblings were now. And that was something haunting like a ghost. The Doherty family were a huge connecting friendship circle rather than a family.

"This society," Lexi replied calmly, "is something that nobody chooses to enter. I don't work for anyone but myself." That was rephrased wrong...it made her sound very selfish. "I have the keys because I was given them."

"This society is something that nobody chooses to enter."
"Then how c-can we join! You don't -- you don't make sense! W-W-Why would you be given the k-keys!" He sounded out of breath and angry, very very rare. He would have scared himself. "I... I want... I just want to go home... Let us go..." The anger subsided quickly.

"I can't, I don't have the front door key. Sit down. Take a breath. And I'll explain what's happening. Then get angry at me for existing and saving your little butts," Lexi was clearly going to be a very bossy lady one day. CJ pushed Lexi over. "NOBODY TELLS ME WHAT TO DO!" he blowed. Ainsley nodded. There's the CJ he knew as a frenemy right now.

Still holding the little knife, Lexi goes crashing onto the floor, stabbing herself in the neck, crimson blood trickling down her front now. She's lucky she can speak. "You idiot you could have killed me and for that, I'm not helping!" she goes outside, with the keys, sulking in the hall.

"Great, just great, let's go downstairs," Ainsley sighed. "There must be like a book or something on this society."

"Y-Y-Y-Y-YOU ST-STABBED HER!" John's breathing picked up. "SH-SH-SH-SHE'S BLEEDING. Y-Y-Y-..." John's breaths were shallow and short, quickening with every gasp. "I-I-IS SH-SHE OKAY??" He begins to feel faint, growing paler and paler.

Ainsley then remembered that CJ did just nearly murder Lexi, and John is doomed because he can't breathe. CJ went even paler than John. In fact, it looks like Ainsley is the only calm one right at this moment, and he's swearing rather loudly. "CJ FOR GODS SAKE FIND A BLANKET OR SOMETHING JOHN IS DYING OVER HERE AND GO APOLOGISE TO LEXI FOR NEARLY KILLING HER!" he eventually screams, seemingly very stressed out.

"N-N-N-N-N-NO... I-I'm.. I'm..... I'm o-o-okay... I'm ok... okay." John nodded to himself multiple times, as if more talking to himself. He didn't regain any colour in his face, however, and his knees still felt incredibly weak. He put his hands and back on the wall, steadying himself. "S-See.. S-See if sh-she's okay.."

Ainsley crossed his arms as if to say, 'Yeah, right, totally fine'. "I've lived in a house with 9 siblings. I know you're not fine," he muttered, but he listened to John and went to see how Lexi was.

CJ and John would hear crying and talking.

John frowned, curious. Crying and talking. Understandable, really, the girl could have died and is probably in an awful lot of pain. "Do you... do you think we're gonna get... outta here, CJ?" John sank to the floor, certain Ainsley would be able to handle himself and he only had to call to them to get help so... She was outnumbered. She wasn't going to try anything, probably not anyway. It wouldn't be smart, and she was a smart girl. Like he was a smart boy.

"What, yeah. John. You and Ainsley are smart with letters and stuff by the looks of things. And I'm good with people. Except maybe not Lexi. We are a perfect combination," CJ smiled. He broke down into a loud whisper, "But I don't trust any of you, John. I don't want to see any of you again. I'm the biggest scaredy-cat of you all. I'm just a good hider. Emotions play hide-and-seek with me."

Ainsley stood up and Lexi started crying and mumbling about the society into his shoulder. He looked uncomfortable but wasn't going to move her any time soon. Right now Lexi was probably as scared as they were. And they were pretty scared.

John's small smile faded quickly. "You don't trust me? I-I can understand Ainsley, w-with your hi-history... I can understand Le-Lexi, because you stabbed her. Bu-but me? I-I've not done a thing t-to you." John frowned. At this rate he'd be getting stress lines early, something he didn't need. He needed to keep up appearances for the family, of course. "It's o-o-okay.. to be scared. Look at me. It-It's not something I-I-I can help but... I st-stutter and go we-weak.." John shook his head lightly and ran a hand through his hair.

"I'm going to see if Lexi and Ainsley ar-are okay." He got to his feet, all wobbly and off balance. Gradually he made his way out, holding onto the door frame for support.

Ainsley saw John, and smiled. "You okay, dude?" he asked. Poor John looked like he was in fear. Lexi didn't look up, she was still mumbling. Ainsley liked John a lot, a lot more than CJ and Lexi. Hopefully they'd still be friends after. CJ was silent for a while. Ainsley stroked Lexi's hair, trying to calm her down. He knew his shirt was probably blood-stained by now. Normally he'd give her a tissue, but he didn't have one.

John went a little bug-eyed, looking at all of the blood. He shook his head quickly. "I-I'm fine." He shot a smile at Ainsley. "We need something t-t-to cover her.. w-wound." The smile faded. "Or p-put pressure on... Or at least stop the bl-bleeding." He turned his attention to the girl. "Do you kn-know of anywhere with cloth or ban-bandages?"

Lexi turned around. There seemed to be more blood on Ainsley then herself. "There's no bathroom in this house, there's a kitchen though. Thinking of that, I'm starving, anybody else hungry?" she said. "Stay here. Don't move," she pressed the little knife (safely) into John's hand, and jumped down the stairs. A soft "ow" was heard, before clattering footsteps.

Ainsley grinned, "She's not half tough, especially for a girl. I'd be crying still. She told me about this society. You can join by swearing an oath on your life that you'll do anything they say. That's why we are here. Like a test, you know?" CJ had come out, "We won't pass. I'm not swearing on nothing. What's in it for you?"

"Don't know, she didn't say."

John smiled a little at Ainsley, but finding it harder to draw his eyes from the blood on him. "I think we're more likely to swear an oath to each other. L-Like when you join a cl-club." John laughed very quietly. "Do.. Do you think we'll get out of this wi-wi-without joining this.. society? I mean.. Le-Lexi seems strong... so why would she have joined unless it was the on-only option...? Or sh-she got something re-really good..." John stopped talking. He was over-thinking again. He really had to stop that.

"I don't think we-we can trust her..." John frowned.

"I don't think I trust her either. Like, CJ just stabbed her and she didn't really freak out much," Ainsley whispered, before Lexi appeared from up the stairs. She had nothing there but she looked a bit better. Or as good as you can look when you've been stabbed.

CJ glared at Lexi, something about her just triggered angry mode. Like, he wanted Ainsley dead, but he'd never hurt him physically. And John was an annoying nerd to CJ, but the guy was alright. Lexi...just. No. CJ automatically hated her. Maybe it was the way she spoke jibberish.

What confused CJ was, why did she join this society? Like, a lot of things can be offered to someone: fame, fortune, beauty...but Lexi had them all the day she was born. Maybe it wasn't offered? Maybe it was taken and she could have it back if she joined?

What if it was her life?

"What did you get from this society, Lexi?" Ainsley stole the words from CJ's mouth.

John's eyes followed Lexi's every move. He didn't want to hurt her, boy he didn't want to hurt anyone. He'd protect Ainsley, though, if it came down to it, because that's how he'd been brought up. Being a part of the family he was put him in.. good stead. Money and knowledge wise. Daniel's protect their own, because who else could they possibly rely on, with their money came vulnerability. He wouldn't usually apply that to other situations but this... this was unique. He wouldn't survive on his own, no chance so he needed Ainsley. CJ was too unpredictable, and Lexi was probably a murderer.

"What did you get from this society, Lexi?"
John just watched her, judging her movement.

"I...I...um...well..." Lexi stammered. She looked really upset about being asked this question. "I...I got..." She felt nervous, pressured, almost scared.
"Spit it out," CJ muttered darkly.
"I didn't get anything," she lied, using her acting skills to pretend like she'd just realised.

John frowned at her. "Nothing?" That couldn't be true. Well, it could be if she was threatened. Or maybe she was born into it - being the only female that could be wise. He glared at her, trying to figure her out. He knew the stammering. She was scared. Scared of what? Ainsley, CJ and himself posed little to no threat. Scared of telling them? "If you're ly-ly-lying.. you can just.. say. We won't hurt you.." He said dully.

CJ grinned. "I can't guarantee that." He had a malicious grin. Lexi looked at John carefully. He was more interesting to her than the other two. He worked her out easy. She decided to just come out to the truth...after she ate. No matter what oath she signed. All the members ended up dying in this old house anyway. "I'm getting food. There has to be food." Ainsley nodded in agreement, "I haven't ate since who knows when. I'm starving." CJ rolled his eyes, "You're changing the subject."

John glanced at CJ, crossing his arms across his stomach. "Lets just get food." He nodded. He wasn't particularly hungry, he just didn't want CJ to hurt anybody. "We'll talk then." He smiled faintly, glancing at everybody. "And, then comes the escape r-route, I'd suppose. Don't want t-to be here when f-f-food runs out." He looked across again to Lexi. She honestly seemed perfectly fine, not injured or anything. No blood, but a bloody knife. John nodded to himself, quietly making an agreement with himself that he'd stop anyone getting weapons unless there was no other choice.
