CH I, Nil by Mouth
Suddenly the room was dark, the only light coming from the lamppost outside the store and the full moon clashing against the dark blue sky. Just as quickly as the room's light snapped away, the two blondes in the back isle of the store ducked down, clasping their hands in the others and slowed their breathing.
Inside, the linoleum floor was cold against their fingertips that held their balance and the hush whispered around them. The seconds and minutes seemed to draw out into hours and decades and they couldn't do a thing about it. It wasn't the silence that was driving them mad, it was the apprehension...
Sirens outside wailed louder as the heavy footsteps of strangers grew closer but neither woman was scared. However, their hearts thundered as if they had run a marathon only mere moments before. Contrasting royal blue and golden orange eyes searched through the dark, waiting for the inevitable, waiting for an end of something that had never begun.
The footsteps stopped, though, but the whining cars and the beat of their hearts didn't. Their chests tightened and their lips quivered. One controlled each breath and one nearly gasped as silently as possible. Throats were sore and teeth chattered.
A gun cocked noisily...
Hums of the police cars stopped outside of the grocery store and they heard the slide of the doors. Did they really think they could help? They couldn't, now, it was too late.
The sirens overpowered any other noise and the girls hated it; they wouldn't be able to hear anyone approach them and they were too far back to see enough light reflecting off of skin or clothes. They felt like they were being trapped like a bunch of animals...like they were being hunted...being targeted.
Their hearts hammered in unison and their breathing synchronized, too, coming softly in and out in long, disheveled breaths. Both of them could feel their thighs become painfully stressed, having crouched and waited for such long time. The knife that had appeared only seconds earlier in the golden eyed girl's hands felt as if it was slipping...like time was slipping away, too.
The moment seemed to slow to a complete stop and it almost felt as if they were free, but a cold hand reached out and grabbed one of them roughly by the arm while their other hand tightly covered her mouth. Her legs kicked and squirmed and before any words could make it out of his mouth, the knife in the other girl's hand was in the middle of his forehead...
...and two hand guns from behind quickly turned the lights off for the blondes...permanently? They hadn't even stood a chance...
Please tell me what you think; I would really appreciate it! Chapter II will be coming next Sunday, October 24th, 2004!
CH. II, Tricks are Kids, PREVIEW:
Pain shot through her body as she sat up, hurried to find out where the hell she was. She was panicked, hurt, and she wanted to leave. NOW. She was missing something, though, she was missing someone. Without a moment's hesitation, her golden eyes widened in realization and she gasped out, "Usagi!"
She brushed off the pain in her right shoulder and left knee and stood. Her feet hit cold, white flooring and the clean, crisp air caressed her body. Quickly, she grabbed her white bed sheet and wrapped it around her naked body, and headed for the door.
However, it flew open before she could reach the handle...and there stood a tall man. His hair matched her room and his cold eyes reminded her of ice. His voice was silky, though, and ran shivers down her bare back, "Where do you think you're going? You are being held captive, Aino Minako, until I say otherwise."
