I laughed as I walked on the concrete my bare feet like leather,
"so how goes everything with the work Liz?" I ask smiling at my friend.
She had long blond hair and blue eyes; she was slightly shorter than then I and was very busty.
"Fine but the boss is being an ass again you know how that is" her voice was smooth and somehow ruff. I smiled and nodded at her, I was a tall short haired blond and I looked like I was starved though I was quite the opposite. I was a fast swimmer and runner and I mean fast I was mostly legs, my family sometimes called me sticks. But I didn't mind one bit
"when are you going to get a job any way?" she asks and I only shrug at her question
"is it bad that all day I feel something is going to happen" I breathe and she shakes her head and we walk along the side walk no cars passing and the empty buildings to our right. It was the year 2018 things had gone up hill for the richer class and for everyone else it was a hell hole. I heard a car but I didn't take any chances so I put my hand on my belt where a knife hung from. I stiffened hearing the vehicle stop but I kept walking, I glanced at my friend who looked as worried as I did. She had her had ready to grab a pistol from her garter belt, then fast moving foots steps and we turn our weapons pulled to see a large van and a large group of hooded figures moving towards us wielding a array of weapons. I looked at Liz as they started to surround us she was shaking but ready with her gun and I was ready with my knife. They came at us Liz shot I sliced; they drugged her once getting the gun out of her hand not beating her at all. Hough I knew how to fight, I got in a couple good hits in but there were too many but once I was on the ground they didn't stop. I took it and passed out. While I was lost in my own mind I was in burning pain, and it was the worst thing I could go through. But I guess I was wrong when I woke up, in a tube full of water in a spring suit and an oxygen mask on my face. My eye sight was blurry but I didn't care I was still tired but I ached all over then I remembered what had happened. I swam to the front of the tube and looked around and I was the date appear in front of me on the glass and I swam backward into a wall surprised. It was six o'clock in the afternoon the date is what I couldn't believe august 16 the same day the kidnapped us but the year… was the big thing… 2021! I had been asleep for the past three years! Now I was mad I wanted out, I started to bang on the glass and kick, and as it started to crack something went off in my head
where is Liz, was she alright?
This made me mad and fueled me to continue banging until I stopped and took off my mask and with one last hit I shattered the glass and along with the water I hit the floor. I gasped and my body quivered and shivered on the cold floor. I pulled myself up and looked around to see Liz in her own tube asleep I went over as fast as I could and banged on the glass until she woke up. She knew what to do she helped me beat on the glass until it shattered knocking me down but she stayed in the tube because her mask held her back. I crawled over to her and removed her mask and held her, "are you okay Liz?" I ask my voice shaking slightly she nods and hugs me. I was 22 and so was she, our hair had grown long and healthy we had lost weight and grown but other than that we were the same. I helped her over to a chair there was by one of two desks I looked around to find a white lab coat on the other chair and gave it to her.
"Where are we? What day is it?"
She asked her teeth chattering looking around, I didn't know how to tell her but I had to.
"Liz," I breathe "we've been gone for three years" I choke out and her eyes widen stunned and I look around to see an air vent.
"How are we going to get out of here?" she asked her voice shaking.
"Vents that's how"
I say grabbing another chair and bringing it to the wall and taking away the cover, it was large and a little dusty but it was a way out. She didn't waste time climbing in after me, I started to go up, I knew up was the way out. I kicked out the grid and fan all in on and climbed out into the nice cool air. I jumped as the alarm went off and I looked at Liz who crawled out behind me, I knew we didn't have too much time now. I looked around to see we where to high up, we were trapped! I started to panic and I went into fight mode, I pushed Liz into the vent and she yelped as I closed it and got into position as armed guards came out from the door to the roof. One came at me trying to hit me with the butt of his gun but I caught it; I felt strong, and mad. My eyes became cat like and my hand shot out and grabbed the man's neck,
"I'm pissed off don't mess with me"
I growl I snap the man's neck. That's when everything moved to fast for me to even remember, I know at a point I grabbed Liz and jumped. Then I know I can't remember anything, it felt as if I was just floating. Until a wave a pain woke me up, I screamed my eyes shot open seeing Liz holding me down crying
"it's okay calm down!"
She yelled at me and I heard another voice "got it!"
Then a face for the voice, a young man came into my view; he had shaggy red orange hair a scar going down the right side of his face but his left. His eyes were a deep green that laughed,
"Man you can take a beating you got shot three times! Respect"
He said in an awed voice and another person came to hold me down and the red haired man disappeared and another appeared , he had a scowl on his face with yellow gold hair and hazel eyes like mine I tried to sit up and he pushed me down and shook his head.
He didn't look to happy but relieved to see I was able to move. I looked around to see I was in an orange colored room maybe because it was lit by candles.
"Alright let 'er go!" I heard the red haired man called, they let me go and I sat up with a pain in my right arm my leg and my lower left back.
"Where the hell?" I groaned rubbing my head and looking at the two boys "who the hell are you two?" I asked and Liz placed a hand on my shoulder. I sat on a mat and on the ground, Liz smiles wiping away tears
"this is Jack," she gestured to the man with red hair "and the other on is Emerson" she gestured to the other man with yellow hair and he nods. I look at them confused but shake and clear my head, my wet suit was dry and I noticed my hair was longer.
"I'm Runner uh please explain to me what's going on where are we?" I asked my voice demanding and jack pulled out and lit a cigarette and took a long drag from it and breathed out smoke
"you two are in new York and its world war three and me and my bro here," he gestures to Emerson "we are fighters and the good guys I don't know why they call it world war three when no one knows what happened and now the so called Cons are trying to rule everyone and we don't like it.. They were going to alter you two's DNA and personalities, but now well it only seems they got to you… Runner"
He breaths smoke pouring from his mouth again as he took another drag from his cigarette. I shook my head not accepting what he said about me
"trust me you're a demon Liz here can tell you" he breathed and I only shivered. I turned to Liz and I didn't need to say anything she opened her mouth and the story came out.
"A-after you hid me I watch and your eyes went weird and you said something when you caught that guards gun and s-snapped his-his neck then you took his gun and-and went after the others that's when you got shot. After you killed them you grabbed me and jumped I thought we were going to die but we landed on another roof and ran and after for who now's how long you where walking and dropped me and collapsed and... That's when Jack and Emerson came up and helped" she choked out her story tears in her eyes and I hugged her.
"You two can stay with us as long as you like you're lucky we found you and not any of the Cons and there are less fighters then Cons that's one thing"
Emerson breathed and I nodded hugging Liz then the pain hit me like a bus. It was the worst feeling, I laid down and stuffed my face into a pillow and bit down on it.
"Get some rest you need it" I heard jack call and then a steady flow of footsteps out of the and the first thing I thought to myself was
how come I feel like Swiss cheese?
