~ A year later ~The sound of an alarm woke me up. I sat up, stretched my sore body, and looked around the room. I saw Kevin clinging to me. "Don't go, babe, please," he pouted and whined."I have to work, Kev. I wish I could stay and give you the attention you need, but I must go.""Why do I always have days off when you work? Not fair." He pouted. With his cute reaction, I kissed him on the forehead and got up for work. While I was in the bathroom, there was something in the mirror. "Something bothering you, my dear sister?" Evan's voice rang out. I spit my water out and stared at my brother's reflection in the glass."Yeah. I'm alright."He walked forward and gave me a "Are you sure" look as he placed his hand on my shoulders. I nodded my head. I wiped extra toothpaste from my mouth and explained it had been a year, and things still felt uneasy. With his warming smile, he ensured everything would be alright. There was nothing to worry about as Brad is dead. I don't need to be afraid
~ Ellie ~We heard a loud snap from above us. The wire splits in half, sending Evan to his demise. I saw my brother’s body flying straight up with the object. The impact is going to be deadly; I know it.“EVAN!” I screamed at the top of my lungs. Aria told me not to move as this rope could end like that. Controlling my movements, tears rolled down my face. I shut my eyes.The elevator smashed into pieces. How did I know? Brawling my eyes out, my body went limp. My only sibling is gone. “Oops, wrong rope,” Brad chuckles. My hands balled into a fist as I started to shake. The laugh needs to shut the fuck up!!!Rapid footsteps were heard, and Minho’s body went flying next to Brad. Where did this officer come from, Brad thought to himself. With his cameras around, he can pinpoint where everyone is at. Good.“Drop your weapon now!!” he yelled.Even though I could see a little, Brad placed his rifle down; then his hands went up in the air. While doing so, he lifts a lever which releases Ari
~ Evan ~I coughed up a black mucus as I got back to my feet. “You girls okay?” I asked. They nodded and dusted themselves off. When everything cleared enough, we saw the stairs engulfed in flames. Panic mode began to corrupt me as I tried to devise a plan.Jennie told me about a back door as he took Ellie and Aria through. She needs to lead the way then. Our lungs were filled with smoke; if we didn’t leave soon, we would die from inhalation. We moved objects out of our way. Once we found light, we rushed out.The black smoke entered the skies, making them cloudy. Another explosion occurred, causing us to lose our balance. Metal and car parts went flying in the air. I covered the girls as they came down. I hope the others made it out in time.“EVAN!!” Brandon ran to me with a hug. He cried in my arms as I hugged him back. John and Kaylee went to help the injured.“Is everyone okay?” Kaylee asked.We all shook our heads at the question. Kaylee searches around to see Ellie, and Aria is
~ Evan ~“What are we looking for?” Kaylee said as he hid behind a wall.“Anything suspicious? If this is not the place, we are screwed, honestly.”We slowly enter the area, looking around to see if anyone is there. The junkyard did have that rust smell like Aria described. My boss paused her movements and ducked down; she pointed to a lit area and a person.“The hell? Where did he come from?” I said.Kaylee quickly moved my mouth to shut me up. I gave her a dirty look, and she removed her hand. We didn’t see him stroll in– so how did he appear like that?? A second later, he is talking to someone, but who?? We wanted to get close, but we kept our distance for now. Brad began to walk towards this large metal container. You wouldn’t notice it at first until you see it from a different angle. “It’s probably where they keep old parts; let’s wait until he returns,” Kaylee mentioned.Brad exited the container and came out empty-handed. We should take a look because that is where they are hi
~ Kevin ~~ After Ellie’s Capture ~My vision was blurry as I opened my eyes. I viewed the area. I didn’t know where I was, so I began to move around. A rattling sound was heard, and my movement felt constricted. “You’re awake! I thought you would never open your eyes. Hello,” a strange voice said.“You.”“Ding ding, you are right! Now come on down and get a prize.” The guy said as he walked up to me. He started playing in my hair. “So nice and soft,” he stated while sniffing it. The person backed up and stared at me. The room was tense as he kept his eyes still. The guy introduced himself as Minho.“What happened to me?? Where am I?!?!” I squirmed around to get the chains loose, but it was useless. Minho chuckled; he thought I was cute for trying. He got a chair and sat in front of me. My body shakes in fear as he tells me about this place.“This is my area to relax. I monitor things here while Brad is away. Like my own little office, nice, isn’t it.” He licked his lips and smiled. W
~ Ellie ~The moon sets, and the sun rises. I woke up in an uncomfortable bed. I wanted to cry as I glanced around my cell. It felt like a dream yesterday. When I looked down, I noticed I was only in my undergarments. When did this happen? Screams were heard from outside my door.“NOO, LET ME GO!”Aria!! That was Aria!! I hopped out of bed but fell straight to the ground. My ankles were chained up. I dragged myself to the door and peeked out. Aria was lying on a metal bed in the middle of the room, with Brad sitting beside her with tools.“Stay still; this will be over in a minute.”I couldn’t see clearly. But I knew I had to do something. “DON’T YOU DARE TOUCH HER!!” I yelled out. My words caught his attention. My eyes blinked once, and he was standing at my cell door. His look had changed; his eyes were cloudy. It had a hint of red in them. He pushed the bars to shut me up.“Surprised that you are awake. Not sore, Ells? I see why Kevin stays with you— your body feels so good. Being
~ Kevin ~~ The Night Before Ellie’s Captured ~As I was getting my shoes on, my coworker walked in. “Are you sure that you should be working? You need to rest after what happened. That wound is not going to heal overnight.” He said.“I will be fine.”“Go home and comfort your girl. Ellie needs you right now.” He gave me a look I couldn’t refuse. I sighed and told him okay. A loud noise scared us as my partner came in like a cheetah explaining he found the first victim’s identity. In disbelief, I followed him to a picture of a nurse. Ellie??“Doesn’t she look like the first victim?” He said, out of breath. I studied the picture closely until it finally came to me. Without a doubt, that is the first victim. I asked if anyone knew her personally and if we could get an interview with them.My coworkers went to find a staff member or a nurse who was close to her. As I waited for their arrival, I stared at the photo again. What a coincidence that they look alike. The nurse popped out of no
The mattress was cold, and the sheets were wet. I still couldn’t believe I was in his gasp after all I did to prevent it. Silence roamed the room until chains filled it. “Ellie.” a soft voice next to me called out.I only knew who spoke once they repeated something. “Jennie? Is that you??”“Oh, Ells. It’s good to hear from you again.” She excitedly said. You could tell she was in pain and could feel the tears running down her cheeks. Was everything okay? She wasn’t hurt too much, was she?? Another voice chimed in; however, they were making sounds. Bailey. Another voice joined, and my heart dropped to the ground.“Eunha!” I shouted. When did she go missing? She wasn’t here for too long, like a day before I arrived. Panic mode set in when I asked about my best friend. Nobody knew anything except she was taken. Disappointed, I crawled back from the cell door. I brought my knees up to my body and placed my head in between. A sharp pain stabbed me out of nowhere. What the hell did he do??
It was pitch black. All you could hear was water drops from the ceiling and the shuffling of feet. I flickered my eyes open to find my vision blurry as I wiggled around, a burning sensation developed on my wrist. Rope, I was restricted from my movements. The ropes held me down to a wooden chair. I began to squirm to loosen them, but no use. My focus shifted upwards to see Brad and his companion.“Whe-where am I?”“Great move that you pulled. But it didn’t get you anywhere but in this chair.” Brad stated. My vision cleared up to see them two smiling. My facial expression froze as Minho walked towards me and bent down to my level.“Nice to meet you again. Sorry about the arm.”My eyes gazed into his soul, my face boiled with anger, and my breathing went silent. I made Minho jump a bit when I scooted forward, coward.“We knew you were here; it was only a matter of time. For a second, I didn’t think I would get you. It seems like luck was on my side.”“What are you going to do to me? Wher
