"Researching for your own good"


"They escaped."

"N-no. Th-they can't!

"They already did."


"I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU DO, FIND THOSE RATS NOW!!"


Beep Beep. The news was broadcasted to the head. Men in white suits hurried around private and trusty detectives inspected the glass boxes the teenagers were held in. He inspected the food, their clothes, everything. No trace.


Meanwhile...


"Wellโ€ฆ. Get us out of space before we die guys!!" Celeste whimpered.

"Concentrate..."


A static hum buzzed in their ears surrounding them with a faint, yellow light. They cracked a hole, and slipped into London.


"Wellโ€ฆ. That was something. Oookay. First up Introductions! Aerin bubbled, clearly ignoring the situation we were in, by levitating.


I scanned the small group. Near us there was a car, with a girl looking out, talking to a boy. She slurred and had red gauze under her tongue. Poor girl, must have gotten her wisdom teeth out. The boy's expression was unreadable.ย Scared, uncertain, but a spark of happiness.ย 


Till now, we have me, we have just a couple of girlsโ€ฆ I hope this goes wellโ€ฆ

I went up first. I knew Sapphire since me and her were taken together.


"Well..umโ€ฆ hey guys! I'm Sia. I control water and stuffโ€ฆ yeah, I'm not that cool, Saph! You go next!" I say not bothering to burst that water sparrow I'd made. I let it play for a while.ย 


"Hey guys!ย I'm Sapphire! Y'all can call me Saph. I'm a Shadow-Dueler. Which means I can control shadows, like I'm doing now-"

"Wait what? How are you using shadows right now?" The brown haired girl asked.

"I'm using my shadows to hide us from normal people." Sapphire explained.ย 

"Oh."


I stared at Saph, how a shadow seemed to sit on her shoulder as a black cat, only the people who she trusted could see it. Her power as a Shadow-Dueler had caused the ends of her hair to turn silver. Her immaculate hair was tied neatly in a French braid,ย her silver eyes darting around and caught mine.


"Hi"

Her shadowy voice filled my head, but it wasn't cold, it was like a breeze on summer's day. Her shadows knew me.ย 

"Hey, are you okay? Even with what Dr. B said about us? That we're a failure?"


I shudder as I remember,ย me and these girls strapped onto beds with needles poking everywhere. Our hands numb, and only our eyes darted around. I remember a whispery voice telling me not to panic and sleep, so I did.ย 


"It still hurts sometimes." She said, as she glanced at her mark. A black rose. They gave us marks. They didn't call us by our names. They called us by our marks. I had three stars on my left hand. One big, in the middle whilst the other two wereย diagonal. Jimmy had a hand. Celeste had a shooting star. Reign had a heart with an arrow through it. Clara had a knife. Aerin had a cross, while Maya had a drop.


"Uh-hello? Um, are you listening?" Aerin asked.

"Oh-uhm yeah, sorry about that." I replied.

"It's okay! Hey people! Um, I'm Aerin, and well, I can fly! If I concentrate enough I can make two people fly with me." She had ink-blue hair wrapped up in a fluorescent yellow bow. She wore a marathon t-shirt and leggings.ย 


She said as she lifted me and another purple haired girl higher and higher. Her name is Celeste. Her eyes are so pretty, its- like- they change colour with her emotions!


Aerinย pulls us down again and I feel newfound confidence.ย 


"Okay I'm up!" Says another girl.. I think her name is Jimmy or something.

"Hey peepsโ€ฆ I'mย Jimmy B. Ergenโ€ฆ. I can talk to llamas, frogs, and rabbitsโ€ฆ"ย 

Saph shot a weird glance at her. Jimmy wore a military- style vest, with corduroy pants, buttoned up boots, and a bowler hat. She strides back to her corner eating candy-floss while continuing her conversation with the rabbit about her insecurities.ย 


"Me nextโ€ฆ I'm Reign. I can control air, mist, and humidityโ€ฆ. I'm lame, who's next?" Said the girl. She wore boots and leggings, with a long t-shirt, and clothing wrapped around her waist. She looked out of an anime series.ย 


"Me, I'm Clara.ย I can swim pretty well, and breathe and communicate through water." Said the girl. She had short, dark-brown hair like me, but vivid green streaks at the bottom. She wore a blue t-shirt with pale yellow khakis.


"I'm Maya, and I control water like Sia, I can command rivers and water vapour, but the Ocean calls me too much-"


"Kay-Kay cool! I'm Celeste and I canย use my telekinesis to lift huge boulders and stuff. Enough with the intros! I can hear sirens!"

"Oh Shoot! They're here! Teleport quickly!!" Someone said.ย 


I didn't hear them. I couldn't hear them. Memories and terror seeped inside me, my subconscious playing those horrific memories again andย again, like a stuck recorder.ย 

I wanted to come out. I tried. I wanted to claw those memories out.

ย Needles. Beeping Machines. Doctors. Nurses. Girls. Friends. Experiments. Failure. Trapped. Glass Boxes. Dry Chicken soup. A voice. It was like water. Rippling through my consciousness.


Come out, Sia. You can do this. It's gonna be okay.


I breathed back to life, seeing Clara above me in sweat. Panic and adrenaline filling me up. I rushed to Jimmy, who must have been experiencing the same thing. Sapphire shrouded us with shadows, Reign commanded the breezes, Aerin lifted us, Jimmy still blacked out. I called water and we all teleported to a forest.ย 


A strong sense of humidity hit me as we reached. There was so much life here. Different birds tweeted, frogs hopped, and the trees swayed, it was humid, but beautiful. I saw a strong river.


As I bent down to to hear it and Maya heard the vapour,ย we both said in unisonย 

"We're in the Amazon."


"WHAT?!! We're in the freakin' Amazon?!!" Aerin and Sapphire squealed. Jimmy talked toย the frogs, and said that they'll help build shelter.ย 


Aerin climbed up a tree, and she found a couple of mangos there. Me and Maya went and made the river healthy, and gathered water. Celeste and Saph went to gather sticks, Aerin and Jimmy brought banana leaves. Reign stayed back and fixed the humidity and air, while Clara made the shack more hospitable. Sometime in the evening, the fort was complete.ย 


It had a strong,ย stick-y structure,ย banana leaves and dry grass as the roof, and fresh grass underneath us. We managed to make a door with chopped wood and stuck it to the make-shift house with super storing honey. Jimmy found some stripped animal hide and we used it as blankets. Celeste kept scaring Aerin that the hide belonged to a hungry bear. We settled down by 8-ish, with berries, and herbs cooking above the campfire, we had to snuff it out once a while, so that if any helicopters were there,ย they wouldn't see the smoke. Sapphire hid us with shadows, me and Maya put a vapour shield, for extra safety.


ย Clara also made hangers for our weapons from animal hide. Her broadsword, Reign's bow and arrow, my sword, Aerin's daggers, Jimmy's toaster oven (apparently because she could eat toast,ย and whack their heads off at the same time), Maya's throwing knives, and Celeste's staff thing. After dinner, we went out for a stroll, Sapphire promising Reign that she would keep them hidden. We set out.



That's when we heard the drums. We followed it and saw a girl. "Isabelle's territory" was written on her treehouse. There were different ropes, connecting different treehouses. There were two other girls, all of them with military styled clothes, one was eating a weird vegetable. We went around and stole a couple, then, we went back to the treehouse and slept.


Everyone was asleep, with their animal hides. I whispered.

"Anyone awake?"

"Yeah." Jimmy and Reign responded.

"What's your story? How did you end up with Doc. B?" Jimmy asked.

"Wellโ€ฆ um. Not much. Me and Sapphire were in a Foster home, we went out at night, after seeing a flash, and they took us. What's yours?"

"I'mโ€ฆ a princess-"...

"WHAT?!!" Jimmy jolted up and stared into Reign's gray eyes.ย 

"Yupโ€ฆ"

"Sooo like you have all the fancy stuff,ย puffy beds, blueberry pancakes for breakfast- wait. Am I supposed to bow or something?!"

"No-no. Chill. Well I had those things. Had. My parents, and my brother died in a fire set by the neighbouring kingdomโ€ฆ he gave me a last gift. I managed to run away, and when I finally did, and thought I was safe, they got me."

"Oh." Was all I could come up with.ย 

"So, Jimmy, how did you end up in the "Research Center"ย 

"Me and my sister. My sister was older than me by a few years. She owned our house. I saw the same white flash, and I went down, and they took me."

"Oh."

"Yeah. This sucks. What did they do to you?" Jimmy asked.ย 

"To me? Well, they, um, made me drink different temperatures of water,ย filled with radioactive stuff. Sometimes it would burn, or it would freeze. Then they exposed me to radioactive vapour,ย which, surprisingly, smelled like bee sting ointments. It's a surprise I'm not dead yet." I shrugged.

"Well, to me, they blasted me with cold air, or hot air randomly, and ordered me to control it, or they'll blast it so hard that it'll kill me."ย Reign sighed.

"Oh. They trapped me with beasts, hybrids, reptiles, amphibians, for 6 months. So I understood Llamas, Frogs,ย and Rabbits. I could try other speciesโ€ฆ" said Jimmy, through a yawn.ย 

"Oh. That's-โ€ฆ.."

"Weird, I know."

"I'm weird too"

"Lol, we all are." Said Jimmy and Reign as she drifted off to sleep, with silent snores.


"Um, hi." Clara whispered.

"Oh-um hello."ย 

"I wanted to ask you, have you figured out your mark yet? It reveals some sort of secret when you understand it, right?" She inquired.

"I wish, though, it seems that Reign might have figured out hers. Maybeย that's why she looked so sad." I said.ย 

"Yeah. Good Night." She whisperedย 

"Good Night." I said.


My eyelids drooped and shut down into an endless oblivion.



But it wasn't long before I heard a blood-curdling scream.
