Chapter 8 – Suprise
If I could just… I yanked a bit harder. Oh who was I kidding?! I couldn't just break metal handcuffs. I gave up. There's no point. I was just a useless weak human. I felt so depressed. I wasn't any good. I might as well let Alex get to me first. At least it would end all my troubles. Another question broke through my pessimistic thoughts. He's looking fro vampires… What is he planning to do with me? What horrible torture did he have in mind for me? I shuddered at the thought. I could imagine his devilish eyes looking me up and down. An evil grin would appear on his perfect face. His hand would trail up my arm and brush my cheek telling me I wouldn't feel a thing. I was about to gag. A sudden movement by the door pulled me from my thoughts. I squinted. The blurry silhouette didn't look like Alex. It was thinner and more graceful. I shrinked into the metal bed in fear. My heartbeat sped up. All my muscles were tensed. And suddenly:
"Tanya!!" I exclaimed, relieved.
"Shhh…" she whispered putting a finger to her mouth.
"What are you doing here?" I asked barely keeping my voice down.
"Edward explained to me everything you'd been through. After a lot of thinking I realized srediar spelled raiders backwards. As soon as I figured it out. I rushed over here. After all Edward's family is my family. (scowl from Bella)But it looks like I'm too late."
"No you're not! If you could just free me from this bed… I think Alex has the keys but – "
Before I could say another word, the handcuffs were two pieces of twisted metal and I was free. Right, vampires are strong.
"Now what do we do?" she questioned expectantly.
"Follow me," I answered.
I made my way to the door but froze when I heard voices right outside. I turned to Tanya in panic. Quickly she opened a closet door and hid inside. I stared at her incredulously. She was planning to hide in a closet? But before I could object she had pulled me in and closed the door. I heard someone come in. I glanced at Tanya gratefully. If she had been a second late, our efforts would have been for nothing. I managed to contain my laughter as I heard Alex's booming voice bellow unintelligible words in rage. Exactly like outraged fathers.
"Who… What???... ARGHHHHH… This… YOU!!" he shouted mercilessly.
Finally he seemed to get down to one question.
"Whose fault is this?" he blurted out.
I felt sorry for whoever would have to take the blame. I felt a small tickle in my nose. I frowned. This is exactly what would happen in a cheesy detective movie. I tapped Tanya's shoulder impatiently. She turned around and seeing my contortioned face she move her hand backwards, sign of a question. I pointed to my nose and, finally understanding, she reached out to pinch my nose. Bad idea. I took a sharp breath. The sneeze was taking its time. A doomed silence settled in the room as if everyone was waiting for the crucial moment. This moment would be when all my hopes and dreams would get crushed. Finally I let out a small but somewhat noisy sneeze. We both held our breath for the moment they would discover us. I realized if they found Tanya, we'd lose all our chances of saving anyone. In a last act of brave heroine, I jumped out of the closet and hurriedly closed its door before anyone could see there was someone else. All the while, I was trying to find an excuse for the broken handcuffs. But, to my astonishment, as I looked around, the room was empty. I realized we had been so concentrated on my sneeze that we hadn't even heard them leave. I sighed in relief. I opened the closet door happily and let Tanya out. At first she stayed cramped in a corner but as she realized no one was there, she jumped out too.
"So what should we do then?" she whispered carefully keeping her voice down.
"I think we should stay here. Alex is going to have a troop search for us. This is the last place they'll look in." I answered thoughtfully.
She nodded in agreement. Tanya walked to the door and attentively listened. She walked away reassured: no one at the door. Or at least no one alive seeing she had been listening for a heartbeat. We both sat down on the floor. We brainstormed ways to find other members of my family. But in the end we both realized we couldn't do much without a map of the building or at least some potential knowledge on our location. I stood up and paced the room nervously. This wasn't going to be easy.
"How did you get here?" I asked Tanya.
"Well, I entered what looked like a firm. Inside, chemists seemed to be working on an important project. They barely noticed me. At first I was looking for some kind of hidden door but I discovered it pretty fast seeing groups of people were going in and out. It was hidden right behind a shelf with just enough space for a normal human to slip in. I slipped through the crowds of people and entered the first room I found: your room," she explained.
I listened thoughtfully to what she was saying.
"So this means once we go out, on one side we'll have the exit and on the other the corridor that will lead us to other unknown doors," I resumed.
"I suggest we find a disguise or else we'll be recognized as soon as we leave these doors," Tanya suggested.
We both scrutinized the room for anything these monsters would wear. Finally we found some doctors' tunic and mask. We got dressed, hid our clothes, and opened the door. Tanya and I paused, staring at whatever danger waiting for us.
