I own nothing.
I had been tortured. I knew that much. Blood ran down my back. I felt like I had just been run over by an eighteen wheeler. I looked up when the door began to creak. Fear and dread crept into my heart. They just left, why would they come back this early? The door opened and a figure appeared. As the figure stepped into the room, my heart plummeted when I saw the boots. Everyone here wore the military style boots. Then I saw the outfit: army fatigues. I shut my eyes before I saw the person's face.
"Hey bro," Zack's voice cut through the room.
"Z-Zack," I hissed.
I opened my eyes to see his face. He grinned from ear-to-ear, something I hadn't seen since before my death. Zack reached up and in one fluid motion, he cut the ropes that held my wrists. I dropped to the ground. He helped me back up avoiding any of my injuries.
"Come on, Codester, we have to save the others," He grinned.
We took off. At every door, Zack kicked through the door and released the captives. Once we got to the very last door, Zack stopped. Then he tried the door. It was unlocked. I clutched his shirt just like when we were younger. We walked in and found Sarah and the others. I hugged Sarah. She held me tightly. Then I looked over to see Zack hugging the girl from before.
I opened the last door. My friends were huddled together. Cody ran and hugged Sarah. Scarlet grabbed me and held on tightly. I wrapped my arms around her. Leon held the twins. Tray and Kylie were hugging each other as if they would die if they let go. I looked around for Declan but he was nowhere to be found.
"I'm sorry," I kept muttering.
Scarlet pulled back and looked at me. Her eyes were flooded with tears.
"What," I choked out.
"It's Declan. They killed him," she sobbed.
I looked at Cody and noticed he was watching me. I looked right into his eyes. Then I shook my head and started to lead the group out of that place. I knew that the chaos of all the kids escaping would give us enough time to escape. We managed to make it to the docks and hijack a boat. When we were a good distance away from the island, I blew it up using my powers.
The journey home took a while but we finally got to the docks of Boston. We caught a cab to the Tipton and walked inside. I had the strangest sense of déjà vu. This was just like when I walked in before. After I had been kidnapped. Mom and Moseby were so excited to see me. Maddie was too but I couldn't help but notice the look of jealousy when she saw Scarlet hanging on me. Of course the police came and questioned me. I told them that I felt trapped here and wanted out. Cody and Sarah went back to their room to debrief with their group. As the two left, I felt that sinking feeling in my gut. The same feeling I had before I left my brother again. Then I felt Scarlet tighten her grip on me. I smiled when I realized that even before all this happened, Cody had always been destined for something else.
London and Moseby managed to convince Mr. Tipton that Scarlet and the others should be allowed to live here at the hotel, free of charge. I decided to tell Mom the truth. It was tough but finally she believed me. She visits Cody every day. The two often go out for lunch. Maddie started giving me dating advice. She accepted that I wasn't hers anymore. Tray and Kylie were apparently a couple before any of this. Moseby started helping me with school. I graduated in the top 10% of my class. Who knew? All I had to do was think about everything like a prank. My emotional scars have healed. Talking really does help. I got into a good college and graduated.
Tray and Kylie got married and adopted Leon and the twins. Cody and Sarah got married as well. They had two boys. One the named Sokai, the other Chris. They are a year apart from one another. Scarlet and I got married in the Tipton Hotel and Moseby gave Scarlet away. We had three kids. Two boys and a girl. Their names are Declan, Adam, and Crystal. Crystal is definitely Daddy's little girl.
Every year, on the day that I rescued everyone, we get together in the park and have a party. A party to remember those that have fallen. Hopefully, we will never have to watch the people we care about most get hurt. Cody and I work as a team to track down the rest of the Obstacles.
"Daddy, come on or we'll be late," my five year old daughter wailed from the doorway.
I looked up from my computer. Crystal and Adam were standing in the door. Crystal looks like me with her blonde hair and green eyes. Adam looked more like Scarlet despite him and Crystal being twins. The little boy had brown hair and light reddish-brown eyes. Declan was the oldest. The seven-year-old had sandy brown hair and light brown almost green eyes.
"Come on Zack lets go," Scarlet smiled over the twins.
I grinned and stood up. We walked to the car and drove to the park. Cody and Sarah greeted us. Sokai and Chris ran up to talk to the kids. Sokai was the oldest. He was the same age as Declan. He had black hair and purplish-blue eyes. He also took after Cody in the sense of smarts. Declan took after me in the pranking department. Chris had dark brown hair and striking green eyes. He was six and always quiet. Tray and Kylie walked up to us, Leon and the twins trailing behind. It's been seventeen years. Leon grinned his nonchalant grin. The twenty-seven year old had been living on his own for a while now, ever since he left college. The twins were now twenty-three. Fresh out of college and beginning their careers as teachers. Kylie held a small bundle.
"What's that," Adam asked.
"This is our son," Tray said, pulling back the blanket to reveal a baby boy.
"We named him Zachary Cody, after the two people who helped us the most," Kylie said, grinning at the two brothers.
And so the group had their celebration. Zack and his brother lived happily ever after.
Sorry for the lame finishing sentence but I couldn't think of how to end the story. So this is the end, thanks for reading.
