I think, I found the culprit.......
It would soon be okay, trust me kid......."Jodi stop...just tell me one thing." Nick said, gripping my arms. Jolts of tiny electric shocks travelled in my arms, tingling my senses into awareness.God.How could his touch transform me into a puddle? How could he have this effect on me? I turned my head back to him and looked at the hand touching me."Was it all really an act? Please tell me the truth." I couldn't let myself look him in the eye without him catching me in a lie but I couldn't also make the one's watching us see me as a weak cat so I made the effort; I looked the grey storm of his eyes and let myself be swept away."Yes, it was all an act." I said but no, my eyes betrayed me just like what I thought. I turned my back to him and lea
Yes, it was all an act.......NICK's POVI squinted my eyes to the white ceiling but closed them back right away. I rolled to my side, leaning closer, facing the wall. I pretended to sleep as the incoming marches of the guard sounded just outside my cell. Without a warning call my door opened but I continued my act. The tapping of a boot declared the guard's impatience towards me. I had no care of tge world, I would never talk unless they give me what I am asking for, Jodi.Only she could make all my worries go away, I had to see her to know if she was okay.Oh god!My mind wanted to explode from all the thoughts running wild inside my head. I couldn't stop thinking of the of the worst, not when my father was still out there to who knows where.Jodi!I screamed inside my
Do you honestly think people have the ability to forget?......The sad thing about remembering is you never forget."So tell me again about the fights and the arena," the woman said, whom you could easily suspect as a headmistress of some high class dormitory. She wasn't though, she's a psychiatrist- my shrink. I leaned back on the sofa, fixing myself.The place screams homey, from the pictures of flowers on the wall to the little angel figurines in the small cabinet at the corner, even the smell of vanilla potpourri made me want to lie down and sleep. But I acted against it, instead I focused my eyes to the clock on the wall in front of me. Tick tock tick tock it kept saying; an hour and the session would be done, no more again for it was my last day. The total of thirty session would finally be finish, no more traumatizing stories aabout that place.
We retrieved the brothers......I pried my eyes open. It felt crusted with dry tears and it hurt as hell, like someone had poured handful of sand to each one of them. It was a drag that it took me a moment to open them just to snap them back shut as soon as I was blinded by the white artificial lights. I turned to my side and curved into a ball- pain was everywhere. I made all the effort anchoring my body to sit up in the squeaky mattress.It was all white: the ceiling, the floor, the mattress, everything, it shouted danger in my head. Fear shot through my spine, I couldn't be back to that horrible place. It was a spitting image of the infirmary with the exception of walls and beeping machines.No.I pulled the cords attached to my arm and groaned in pain. My muscles were aching ten fold.
Rosie is that you?......FLASHBACK (THE BRAINWASHING AND THE MAIN EVENT)A piece of metal grew cold in my hand, I have no idea what to expect after the procedure. They kept telling it was something vital to my mission, I need real emotions they said. But I was scared of having trespassers inside my head."Do I have a say about this?" I asked still looking at my hands. "It'll hurt right?""It's a must, feeding the images directly to your brain is much faster and more efficient." The doctor held his hand to take the apparatus. "Lie down. I hope you haven't eaten anything yet.""Why?" I questioned without thinking."You'll see, now lie down"I did what he ordered me to do, I lay down the bed. In my side a nurse took my arm, applying disinfectant on the area of application. The needle went to my the vein and travelled
1We are training you so that zero percent chance of winning will be a hundred percent!......FLASHBACK (TRAINING)"How did you convince my parents?" I asked the salesman clutching the papers in my hand. Though they have a serious thing for security, the salesman remained after our first meeting."As far as they know you were accepted in a prestigious school out of the country. You scored a hundred and eighty six in your last IQ test, it's easily believable. Much I couldn't believe a fifteen year old hacked in to the Pentagon's firewall using a back door...anyways...your parents would be announcing your acceptance once you get home and you'll be leaving with a flight tomorrow at exactly six am and then it'll be intercepted at New York and you'll be rerouted to Langley for debriefing. Nothing formal just small talk," he explained pointing to my hands. "Read it, don't ski
Are you fucking kidding me?......FLASHBACK (RECRUITMENT)"Get moving! Grab the things you can, the police are coming any minute now!" I shouted through the blaring alarm of the jewelry store. My friends-if you could call people you met just hours ago as friends- started moving, we used the back door leading to the dark alley as an escape. "It's nice working with you guys! Till next time! Ciao!" I bid my goodbye and we all parted ways. I drove off passing the store and the incoming police. It would be a busy night for them.I on the other hand smiled widely, there would be a nice morning to come for me.......It was yet another boring day, the hyped of last night's events were dissipating rapidly. I needed something more long lasting, something bigger and more thrilling.
