When I woke this time, I unfortunately wasn't in my car again. I sat up blinded by all of the white light. Everything was clean and plain. White bed, white walls, and a white floor. I would have figured I was in the hospital but then I remembered what happened before I passed out. We should have hit the ground when Eric jumped, sending us both flying towards the earth, but after I checked over my body there was not a scratch in sight. I was perfectly fine. Except for feeling dizzy and tired just like the last time. Where the hell was I?
I looked to the side to see my phone on a small table in the corner. If I got my phone, I could see what time it was and if I was kidnapped, I could call 911. Slowly, I got out of the bed but fell back down immediately after when I started to see black. After I could see straight, I tired again and managed to hobble over to the table. I picked up my phone and found it to be lighter than normal. My heart dropped to my stomach when I flipped it over to find the battery missing. Why would they take my battery out for any reason other than they didn't want me to call and get help? I was definitely screwed.
I turned around and saw the door. Oh, how I prayed it was unlocked. Panicked, I hobbled toward the door as fast as I could. I took a deep breath and twisted the door knob. To my relief it was unlocked. Cautiously, I stepped outside the door and listened. It was eerily quiet, I could even hear my heart pounding in my chest.
I tip-toed down the short hall I was in that consisted of about 10 rooms all with the same door the one I had been in had. When the hall ended, I could go either left or right. I choose left, which after another even shorter hallway, there was one door, with a small glass window on it. Looking through it, I found a giant pool, and at the bottom seamed to be some kind of underwater tunnel. Seeing no one in sight, I tried opening the door to see that it was surprisingly unlocked. There was a total of three doors in the pool room including the one I had entered from. One was directly across from the one I was standing next to, and the other one on the wall to the right of me.
I walked up to the door that was across the room but found the door locked, so I started for the last one. This door did open, but it opened into a huge room that looked to be about the size of half a football field. If anyone walked in, they could easily spot me. The room was filled with things like pool tables, couches, a big screen TV, and a table big enough to seat eight. So far, this place just seemed like a giant house. This room had multiple doors, and what appeared to be a curved hall way. I started down that but froze when I heard footsteps coming my way. I turned around to run back the way I had came, but it was to late.
"How the hell did you get in here!" The light brown haired, blue eyed boy around my age shouted angrily. I ran as fast as I could away from the boy in my dizzy state, but he caught up to me.
"I asked you a question!" he said slamming my back against the nearest wall forcefully, but not enough to hurt that bad. I started freaking out and I couldn't get words to come out of my mouth. I looked in his eyes to see pure rage, and with him looking into mine, he must have seen pure fear.
"I-I don't, I just-" I managed to squeak out, but he cut me off.
"Let me ask again. How. The. Hell. Did. You. Get. In. Here." he said menacingly.
"I don't know" I said starting to feel tears welling up in my eyes. I had never been so scared in my entire life. All of a sudden, a beeping went off and the boy looked up frustrated. He pulled handcuffs out of his back pocket, and closed one down on my wrist and the other to a pipe on the wall that ran the perimeter of the room.
"If you so much as move a muscle while I'm gone, I will kill you as painfully, and slowly as possible" he spat through gritted teeth. The second he was gone, I started crying hysterically. If I left the spot I was in, I could get away. But if I failed, he would kill me. If I stayed, he would probably kill me anyway so I moved the cuff along the pipe as fast as I could back to the pool door. I figured I could hide underneath the pool cover that covered half of the pool. When I got to the door, the pipe ended, but I couldn't get the cuff off because of a support rack keeping the pipe where it was. I pulled on the cuff as hard as I could, knowing there would be bruises there later. A few tugs later, the pipe burst, and water spewed everywhere. It was amazing what adrenaline could do. I started to stand up, soaked in cold water, and I saw the boy was running toward me again.
"NO! Don't touch me!" I screamed as loud as I could with fresh tears streaming down my face. Before coming to me, he pulled a lever to seal off the large amount of water that was flooding the room. Equally soaked, he turned toward me. I tried standing up, but I kept slipping on the floor because of how dizzy I still was.
"Kora. It's okay. I just want to talk" he tried gently taking a steep toward me.
"How do you know my name! What do you people want! Just let me go!" I screamed scooting back only to be met with my back against a wall.
"I'll explain everything. I promise. Just calm down."
"Will that be before or after you kill me painfully and as slowly as possible?" I cried harder than I was before.
"Okay, I know what I said before, but I didn't mean it." he said taking another step closer.
"Stay away from me!" I shouted at him.
"I'm going to give you one last chance to calm down or I'm going to have to make you calm down myself. Just relax and come with me." he said with authority in his voice.
" Like hell I will!" I yelled kicking him in the groin. He fell to the ground moaning in pain, and I used this as my chance to run away. I through open the pool door, sprinted toward the door that led down into the hallway. Once there, I passed the hallway I had originally been in and ran down another hallway. I turned around when I heard footsteps to see the boy just coming out of the pool room holding his groin, obviously still in pain.
There was one door at the end of this hallway, and it better be unlocked. I ran as fast as I could and reached out to turn the knob. It was unlocked, and when I got in it, I locked it so he couldn't get it. This room appeared to be a utility room considering the giant water tank, and other contraptions I didn't recognize. Of course there was another door, but knowing the boy would expect me to run through that one too, I looked around for a place to hide. I settled on hiding underneath some big machine making weird noises and waited. Five minutes later, I heard the door knob twisting and I put a hand over my mouth to stay quiet.
"Kora, I know you're in here. The door was locked from the outside, you couldn't have gone anywhere" He explained, slowly walking across the room. How stupid was I. Of course I should have checked to see it the door was locked or not. Now he knew where I was!
"Why don't you just come out now. It'll save us both some time" he said as he was nearing my hiding spot. I closed my eyes and hoped he wouldn't see me. My heart skipped a beat when I heard him speak again.
"Oh there you are. See, I knew you where in here" he said smiling. I screamed out of surprise, and sank back farther into my spot.
"Want to come out now?" he said squatting down so he was at my level.
"Leave me alone!" I pleaded.
"It's okay Kora. No one is going to hurt you" he said reassuringly.
"Liar! Not even ten minutes ago you threatened to kill me!" I said starting to cry again. He was quiet for a moments looking down as if trying to find a way to convince me to go with him. He looked up and I noticed his shocked expression.
"Okay, do not freak out, but there is a massive tarantula right behind you." He claimed. Me being a total girl, screamed and shot up out from under my spot to have him wrap his arms around me.
"I knew that would get you out from under there. By the way, there is no spider" he said laughing.
"LET ME GO!" I shouted pounding my fists into his back. I felt one of his arms release me and reach into his pocket again. He produced a filled syringe, and he uncapped it with his teeth.
"No please don't!" I begged him. I was terrified of needles, and not knowing what was in there made me even more uneasy. Before I could protest even more but it was too late. The needle plunged into my skin and I felt the liquid enter my body and I figured I was dead when I started to feel even weaker than I had before.
"It's okay Kora, just breath" he instructed as my knees started to buckle from underneath me. My head stirred and I started to see black again. I fell over, but instead of hitting the floor, he caught me and picked me up bridal style before I passed out for the third time this week.
