Haley Price

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger

0 · 556 views · located in 2026

a character in “Whispers in the Night”, as played by deadaray

Description

Image
Full Name: Haley Marie Price
Experiment Number: 1142A
Age: About 17
Gender: Female

Personality: Haley is a strong willed young girl. No matter what happens in her life, she never gives up. In her mind, "giving up" and "weak" are synonymous. Even so, she would never tell someone that, if they were thinking about giving up she would do her best to push them and motivate them to keep going.

History: Haley can't remember a time when she wasn't in the lab. Her birth parents were a complete mystery, for all she knew she was bred in the lab. The scientists experimented on her plenty of times, but she did her best to block them out after a while. She had a whole bunch of failed escape attempts in her past, but each one just lead to a move into a higher security area of the lab.

Tests/Mutations: Haley had more than her fair share of experiments done on her during her lifetime. Some of them made drastic changes while others were complete failures. At some point early on in her life, Haley's DNA had been spliced with avian DNA. She had large white wings with beige and silver streaks and extremely strong yet light-weight bones. At some point the scientists had run a whole slew of experiments on her senses which resulted in a heightened sense of sight, touch, and hearing. Unfortunately, these experiments also resulted in a severe loss of her ability to smell. She could still smell some things if they were really strong, but for the most part she couldn't smell anything. Like most of the other mutants in the lab, she had slightly elevated reflexes, and for whatever reason a very fast immune system.

So begins...

Low hanging tree branches whipped Haley's face as she ran through the forest. It felt like she had been running for ages, but she wasn't ready to stop yet. In the distance she could see a bright light shining through a dense patch of trees. Back at the lab they had done all sorts of fitness tests. She had been forced to run, jump, swim, and fly for miles. It seemed inevitable that one of them would be bound to come in handy eventually. Apparently 'eventually' was today. The trees were getting closer and closer together, and she could feel their sting as they hit the plethora of cuts and bruises that littered her arms, legs, and face.

Suddenly the trees were gone and Haley burst through onto the sidewalk of a busy street in what appeared to be a small suburban town. Okay, first things first, where on Earth am I? She thought, looking around for a street sign. She hoped the outside world was like the movies she'd been forced to watch in the lab. It looked about the same, so why wouldn't it be? Haley had had to teach herself to read with little things she found in the lab. It took a while, but it was a great way to pass the time and break away from the world she lived in. A few years ago she had found a book about a bunch of kids who's DNA had been spliced with that of a canine. They were just like her, well except for the fact that they had different animals inside them. Anyways, the book had been labeled "sci-fi" for "science fiction". It struck her as odd, why would it be science fiction? Back at the lab Haley had met a couple kids with canine DNA in them. That was lesson one about the real world, mutant kids weren't just abnormal out here, they didn't exist.

"Maine Street" She read aloud when she finally found a street sign. People were staring at her and her automatic assumption was that they knew. Somehow they could just tell she was different. Haley instinctively pulled her wings in a little tighter to her body and turned to keep walking. That's when she saw her reflection in a store window. Her face was covered in small cuts and bruises, her clothes were torn and caked in a mix of mud and blood, and there were twigs stuck in the knot that was once her hair. Crap.

She walked into the store in hopes of finding a bathroom or something to clean up in. Instantly a motherly looking blonde woman ran over to her, "Oh my word deary, what in the world happened to you?" She asked as she started pulling the twigs out of Haley's hair.

"I, uhm, I went for a run and got a little lost." She lied, then realized it still didn't explain her appearance, "and I fell down a hill."

The woman shook her head, "my my my, well come on back and we'll get you cleaned up." Before she knew what was happening, the woman grabbed her arm and led her behind the store's counter and into a large storage room. There was a small sink in the corner with a first aid kit and a few basic toiletries next to it. "Thank goodness we have this stuff back here," the woman said as she picked up a hair brush, "The boss likes us to look pretty when we're working, says it will help us sell more clothes. Were you running down by Breton Creek? That's the only real big hill I can think of around here that could do this much damage. You would've needed to be going pretty fast though." Haley nodded silently.

The woman gave her a new outfit and bandaged up all of her cuts, talking idly about one thing or another the whole time. "No charge deary, do you need help finding your way home?" She asked as she led Haley back out to the main part of the shop.

Haley shook her head, "No I'll be alright," she said, inching towards the door. "Thank you so much, I'll be sure to tell all my friends about this place, I hope you have a good day." She said and made a beeline for the door. Friends? What friends? The only friend Haley ever had was a girl years ago that the scientists paired her with during tests to save time.

Now what? She thought.

Rosie walked forward, her hair a midnight black. She was almost in the small town, where the regular humans would be. She was about to pull up her hooded cloak when she remmbered a quote from Oscar Wilde. "Be yourself; everyone else is already taken," she whispered, and left her hood down. She walked through the crowds of humans, trying to look as inconspicious as she could. She noticed a girl with alot of scratches and bruises enter a shop, and was immediately curious.

She walked towards the shop and was about to enter it when the girl came out again, with a new outfit and scratches patched up. "Oh! Sorry, uh...I was just..." Rosie turned red at the same time her hair did, embarrassment flooding her. She gave herself a facepalm as she saw the hair change colour. "Shit," she muttered, quickly pulling up her hood. Now she really didn't know what to say. How would the girl react?

"No worries..." Haley said, her voice trailed off at the end as the girls hair changed color right in front of her eyes. She wasn't sure if it had really happened or not at first, but stranger things had happened in the past. "Did your hair just," she paused, "change colors?" The girl might have come from the lab, but there was no guarantee, and she didn't want to just go blabbing her past to strangers on the street.

She saw her reflection in the mirror and realized she was still covered in band-aids. Without really thinking Haley started picking them off one by one and folding them up. She wasn't sure if it was the result of a specific experiment, or if it happened over time recovering from the experiments, but her immune system seemed to work twice as fast as everyone elses. The cuts and bruises were all gone and all the physical evidence of her struggle to escape was gone. Shit, she thought as she realized the girl was still standing there and had seen it all. Maybe she won't realize.

Luna looked up to see some people she thought she recognized. "Is that...?" she mumbled to no one in particular. "Is that... hanah... haner... haley, yeah Haley!" Somehow her spirits soared as she spotted someone she believed was another mutation. Why they rocketed, she had no clue, but her body started moving so she didn't have time to think. She really didn't want to just walk right up and say 'hey Haley how ya doin?' so she pulled herself to a standstill. "Look before you leap" Luna, agian, said to herself. "You don't just walk up to someone like that!" Luna wasent even sure this was Haley from the lab. Just think...

Haley thought she heard her name somewhere in the distance. The voice sounded familiar, but she couldn't quite place it. The possibility of being recognized should have been enough to have her back on the run in under a fraction of a second, but it had been her real chosen name. None of the scientist used her chosen name, they just referred to her by her experiment number, 1142A. She looked around as casually as she could, not wanting to bring the girls attention to another escapee, if there even was one.

Luna! Haley recognized her immediately. She had met plenty of the other experiments at the lab, but most of them weren't very successful. The other "normal-ish" ones always stayed in her mind. She nodded as imperceptibly as she good and turned back to the girl in front of her.

Rosie bit her lip. "Uh..um..yes?" she said. The girl started pulling off her band aids, and Rosie noted that all her cuts and ruises were already gone. Hmm, perhaps she was from the lab too? It was a small chance, but the possiblilty gave her a tiny bit of hope. Perhaps she wouldn't be alone. Just then, a differentgirl called out the other girls name. "Is that... Hannah, Haner, Haley, yeah, Haley!" Haley, Rosie thought. So that's her name.

"That's a neat trick," Haley said. She had a feeling this girl had come from the lab but she wasn't sure how to ask. It's not like you can just walk up to someone on the street and say Hi there, were you raised in a lab and experimented on by crazy scientists your whole life too? She smiled, "I'm Haley."

Haley saw a girl run into an alley. Syn? She thought. Syn was a bird-kid too. She thought it was a little strange that all of the escapees had wound up in the same town at the same time, but she wasn't ready to question it just yet.

That's when she saw the van. Crap, they're here already? She thought. She wasn't sure if it was one of the lab vans or just a random person who had made a very unfortunate choice in cars, but she wasn't about to wait and find out. "I uh," she started, but she didn't know how to explain it to the girl standing in front of her. Maybe if she were a more trusting person she would have taken a leap of faith and assumed the girl was from the lab, but she wasn't. She didn't trust people at all. "I have to go." She said and ducked down into an ally.

Haley turned into the ally, it was a dead end. Before leaving the little store, she had cut slits in the back of her shirt just big enough for her wings to fit through. Thank God she thought. She was just about to open her wings and leap into the air when Rosie ducked into the ally behind her. She has to be an escapee too she thought. Who else would take off at a dead sprint at the sight of an average looking black van? Taking to the sky seemed like the best option, but she couldn't just leave another escapee to the ground.

"Do you have a plan?" She asked turning back to Rosie.

Haley was relieved when Syn walked into the ally, finally a familiar face. "Hey Syn!" She said with a smile. "What's going on with the van out there?" She asked, "my plan was just to stay out of sight, I feel like if I fight it they'll know where I am and send more, but if they don't see me they just might let me be, you know?" She had hoped for that to be the plan but the sound of gunfire in the streets confirmed that staying out of sight wouldn't be an option.

Haley caught the keys and just looked at them for a minute. "I don't know how to drive." She said. When you're born and raised in a lab, there are certain skills you never get a chance to learn. Not to mention the idea of being in such a small enclosed space made her nervous. She couldn't just spread her wings and fly away from the inside of a van. "Wait, where are you going?" She asked as Dark walked away.

Something changed in Dark that made Haley uneasy. It might have been a shift in his stance or a small change in his expression, she couldn't really tell what it was but she didn't like it. "You're leaving?" She asked with as little emotion as she could. Clutching the keys a little tighter in her hand she looked up at dark, directly into what she hoped were his eyes, although she couldn't tell through the dark sunglasses. "Don't you think we should stick together, you know, work as a team?" she asked. Sure it might be easier to lay low by himself, but it would be easier to survive as a team.

Kato blinked and missed the fight between dark and the three men in the van.Dark was quite skilled at fighting indeed.He watched as dark suddenly turned violent on haley"Oh no he doesnt"Said kato rushing out and standing in front of haley staring directly at dark"No dark,were keeping the keys and etting the hell out of here.Your welcome to join us but if your not then get lost.I wont let you lay a finger on haley or anybody else for that matter".Kato balled his hand into a fist and held it out in front of him,as he did his fist suddenly became encased in metal,this was his mutation,this was what they did to him.Kato stared down dark showing no signs of fear what-so-ever.

Haley kept her eyes locked with Dark's as he took off his sunglasses. She didn't really know much about him other than what he had said in the past 15 minutes or so. The most important thing she remembered him saying was "I need to get back to my job, murder" Murder? Sure, just about everyone in the lab has killed someone at some point in their life, but she wouldn't exactly call it a job.

She had the keys clutched tightly in her hands, wings at the ready, when Kato stepped between them. Haley thought about pushing him aside, but every guy she had ever met had that protective mindset about them. Every guy except Dark that is. She stepped back and let Kato take control.

It was a solid crew and everyone had some sort of a useful skill, unlike some of the failed experiments she had seen back at the lab. Dark started to walk away but he turned around and agreed to stay with the pack. His fighting skills would come in handy next time the lab's goons came calling for them. Everyone started heading to the van when Syn asked Haley if she was coming. "Yeah, definitely" She said walking back towards the car. Everyone started getting in the back seat so she took shotgun. Partially because no one else had, but mostly because it had it's own door and a window that could open if she needed to get out fast.

"Where to?" She asked.

Luna whatched the whole thing unfold from the fire escape above the others. Dark scared Luna a ton. So it was an amazing sight to watch the others stand up against him. Soon the gang headed to the van and Luna was not about to be left behind. She jumped down from her spot on the railing, landing on the ground and regretting jumping. Luna didn't really get hurt but landing was a problem that she needed to work on. Yeah, she was a cat but when your locked in a small room, there isn't much to climb or jump off. Luna ran over to the van and climbed in the back. She didn't think about how odd it was to the bystanders outside that a group of teens (who just killed/ran from some scientists with guns) were making a getaway in a stolen van. What she was thinking about was she hoped the others didn't mind her sudden apearance. Really, she just wanted to get far from that ghetto.

Kato watched as everybody desided they were going to team up in there own way.kato was hesitant to actually join them,he had no poeple skills and a fear of women.There were three women in the van....three.Kato would die of embarrassment in that van he knew it.But at the same time he knew that if he did not come along dark may hurt the girls or worse"Damn you dark"Said ryder climbing i the back of the van and pulling his hood over his head to hide his face.Kato could drive but he desided he would let dark drive,though the idea of having a maniac at the wheel kinda scared him he stayed silent and kept his mouth shut.He was here simply to keep dark in check"So were we heading anyway dark,not back east i hope"

Kato watched through the back window as syn jumped onto the top of the second van spreading her magnificent wings.He continues to watch as she falls to the pavement rather hard and just laid there as the van runs right into her"NO"Kato yelled out as the van bursted into flames before him"Woah"Was all kato said as syn ended up back in her seat looking only a bit hurt.Kato sat back in his seat with a sigh"Guess she does not need protecting after all,just great she probably thinks i think shes weak"Thought kato pulling his hood farther over his face.

Luna was amazed at what Syn had just done. From her spot in the back seat she saw the van go up in a blazing infirno as it had gotten to close for Luna's comfort. When Syn had returned to the van, Luna saw she was in pain. Mabye not much, but she wasn't about to let that get in the way. "Are you ok?" she asked. She ducked her head a little in case Syn made a lunge for her. How horrible, you might think, but it really was a reflex from being swung at in the labs.

Kato sighed as dark slammed on the breaks acting like a total barbarian.He lurched forward a bit but he was wearing his seat belt and was safe because of it"There is a gas station just down farm road,take a left a this next exit and drive straight until you see it by the corn field ".Ryder cracked his neck and resumed being the silent guy.He this town pretty well considering he had spent the last 4 days here.They were not completely out of town yet,they were in the outskirts and ryder remembered seeing the gas station when he came into town.

Kato sighed looking out the window at the rolling country side.It was such a dull sight even if they were running for there lives.Bored with watching rows of a corn and cows grazing kato decided he should eat.He reached into his backpack and pulled out a bag of chips,ranch flavored.Kato ripped the bag open and began to munch on his snack somewhat enjoying his "Meal".He looked down at his backpack filled with food and water,he was lucky that it was easy for him to fond odd jobs when he traveled from town to town but he wondered just how the others fared when it came to surviving on there own.Kato set his bag of chips down and pulled out two more bags a two bottles of water from his pack before placing a bag and a bottle on syn's lap quietly and turning to do the same for haley.He looked back at luna seeing that she had her own but decided she might find it rude if he did not offer her anything.He reached into his bag again and pulled out another bag of chips and a bottle of water before setting the on the ground in front of luna making sure to avoid eye contact as he did.He might be stuck in this van with them,and they might have been tortured just as badly as he was but he still had a deep fear of women"Keep it together ryder"He thought to himself leaning back in his seat suddenly losing his appetite"There just girls,not aliens.Say something or at least smile for fuc* sakes".Kato wanted to do just that but instead he pulled his hood down farther over his head and stared back out of the window,still nothing but farmland.This was going to be a long journey he could tell.

Kato watched the scene with wide eyes not believing what he just witnessed,this guy just murdered somebody as if it was nothing"WHAT THE HELL MAN"Yelled Kato still in shock"YOU DID NOT JUST SERIOUSLY MURDER THE PERSON IN THAT HOUSE AND THEN GET BACK IN THS CAR LIKE YOU DID NOTHING".Kato was done with dark and his psycho self"Get out of the car dark,hand me the keys and leave"Katos eyes gleamed as his arm became encased in metal.
