Tuesday night seemed to come way to fast. I thought I would have an entire day to work out the kinks in my plan, even if Shelton did most of that already. I sighed and looked at my phone, 7:30 shinning up at me from the screen. I guess it was time to go. I got ready in my normal break-in apparel, which consisted of black skinny jeans, a black shirt with a black zip up hoodie that had pockets on the sleeves, and my black combat boots. I couldn't do anything to my hair so I just put it in a loose pony tail and headed off. I met the guys at the bunker around 7:50. They were all anxious so they got here early. I couldn't blame them, after all, our break-ins don't always go as planned. I went over the plan one more time just to make sure they understood. Hi and Shelton unlock the gate while Ben and I keep watch. We sneak in, snoop for evidence, then once we find it, or until we get caught (this thought courteous of Hi) we head back out. The guards change positions every 20 minutes, so that gives us 3 minutes to sneak in, 14 minutes to snoop, and 3 minutes to get out. Simple enough.
We stopped in the woods about 40 feet from the main entrance. It was time for everyone to flare.
I flared instantly. Next was Hi, then Shelton. Ben, as usual, was last. I turned away, begging for him to flare. I dug through my bag, pretending to be preoccupied so Hi or Shelton could help him. When I turned back around, he had flared. This was odd because I heard no cry of pain, but whatever. He had flared and that's all that mattered.
I of course, was the last to flare. I had been thinking about how much pain I was going to be in and how I was going to kill Hi after tonight when a thought popped into my head. Tory could always kiss you again… WOAH. Wait a minute. Had I really just thought that? But I continued to think about the last time she had helped me flare. Her lips on mine, her hair falling around my -SNUP- I had flared. Well, at least Hi didn't need to hurt me. But flaring had never come that easy before. I guess I had just needed more emotion involved. And thinking of Tory kissing me definitely did the trick. I turned to see Tory looking at me oddly, but she then turned away.
Hi and Shelton were able to successfully get in the main entrance. The lock was the same, with just a few upgrades. Nothing that these two geniuses couldn't handle. We snuck inside and quietly made our way to Dr. Karsten's old lab. On the way, I noticed a new door. It was shiny and silver and looked like it was made of unbreakable steel. Hmmmm, now I wonder what could be behind this door. I stopped and called the guys back. The lock had a 6 digit entrance code. Crap, this was DEFINITELY an upgrade from the 3 digit code before. "Hi" I said "What would be the preset code for a lock like this? The others were 333, but this one…" I trailed off, unable to finish. We all looked at the door. "You could always try 123456…" Hi suggested. Ben, Shelton and I looked at him. "What? It was just a suggestion." I sighed. What the Hell? What have I got to lose? We're probably going to get caught anyways so… I punched in the six numbers. I heard a ding. I raised my eyebrows and looked at the guys. There was no way that actually worked. Ben helped me pull the door open and we went in. It looked like a jail cell area. There were bars, a bed and even a toilet. I noticed a tag hanging on one of the bars. I went over to it and picked it up, reading the tiny print.
Specimen 5 shows signs of increased strength and mental abilities. The readings have been off the charts. Specimen also shows increased sensitivity to sounds, smells, and even touch. The Specimen is ready for the next stage of testing. Use extreme care. Do not make Specimen 5 angry.
I couldn't believe my eyes. I dropped the tag and walked back. The guys took one look at me and went to read the tag. "We have to get out of here. Now" I said. The guys agreed and we took off. We got back to the gate just in time. We had exactly 1 minute to make it out. I told Hi and Shelton to go first, and Ben and I would cover them. Right when they made it to the trees, I heard the guard.
Just perfect. My flare had gone out. I noticed Ben's had as well. Just perfect, I thought again. I looked toward the guard coming. He was new, but wasn't one of the bad guys. He only had a night stick and flashlight. No gun. "Ben" I said "You go, I'll take the blame for this one. Just go without me". Ben looked at me and shook his head. "Do you trust me?" he asked. "Of course, but what are you pla-" I didn't get another word out.
"Do you trust me?" I asked Tory, hoping for the reply I got. I didn't even wait for her to finish her sentence. I grabbed her arms pushed her up against the fence and pressed my lips on hers. I had only thought of this plan a second ago, but it was the best plan I had ever had. I knew the guard was close, and I was not going to let Tory take the blame alone. I moved so my mouth was by her ears and whispered "We have to make this believable." Well, Tory apparently didn't need to be told twice. She grabbed my sides and pulled me closer to her. Her arms then went around my neck, pulling my face down towards her as well. Her kiss deepened and her fingers laced in my hair. I could feel her kiss now, throughout my entire body.
When Ben kissed me, I admit it, I froze for a second. But when he whispered in my ear to make it seem believable, I had this thing under control. I pulled him closer to me, brought his head down and I kissed him like there was no tomorrow. And all I could think was that this was way better than Blake's kiss. His kiss didn't even register compared to this. I wished I could have stayed like this forever. But after the short 45 seconds, the guard was upon us. "Gah, kids these days! You two! You can make out somewhere else! Get off the fence!" I was pretty sure I was as red as my hair at that moment. "Yeah, whatever man" Ben said as he stepped away from me and put his arm around my waist. I couldn't say a word. I just let Ben lead me off into the trees. Wow… just… Wow… was all I could think. When we got to the trees, Hi and Shelton were just staring at us. "What?" grumbled Ben "I had a plan and It worked." He then realized that he was still holding on to me and dropped his hand. "Let's just get out of here before that guard decides to make sure we left." And with that, he stalked off. I was still dumbfounded. Hi and Shelton looked back between Ben and I and then shared this look. Then they both started to grin. This is so not good I thought. I finally snapped out of whatever trance I was in and followed Ben.
We all made it to the bunker and just sat there. Ben wouldn't look at me, and Shelton and Hi just continued to grin. I decided to be the mature one and talk about our findings. I swallowed and began "So, we learned something big tonight. A game changer to say in the least." Hi and Shelton started to giggle. I ignored them and continued. "My hunch was right. Someone has been testing, you all read that tag. And from what it told us, it's not good. Specimen 5 seems to have some of our same abilities. But we don't even know who, or even what, it is. "I have a suspicion" murmured Ben. We turned to look at him. "Doesn't it seem odd that Blake shows up not a week before we find out this critical information? Doesn't that seem strange to anyone else? I mean, I knew the guy was bad news, but I just couldn't place why. This has to be it." "Now wait a second! Blake has been nothing but nice to us since we met him! He hasn't given us one reason to suspect him!" I challenged back. There was no reason to suspect him. "You're just saying that because you kissed him" whispered Hi. I turned to him "What did you say?" Hi looked slightly embarrassed but repeated it. "You wouldn't suspect him because you have a thing for him" He said again while looking at the floor. I went wide eyed. How had he known about that? I was at the Cotillion, and he definitely wasn't there. "I ran into Jason this morning, when I was with my mom shopping. He told me you had a new 'boyfriend' and I asked who. He told me Blake and I just laughed and said that you were just being nice to him. He said that you had never been THAT nice to anyone before. He then told me he saw you kissing…" Hi ended his sentence there. I had a horrified look on my face for sure. I'm not sure what it was at the moment, the rage of the guys finding out, the guilt of not telling them, or maybe the effects of having just kissed Ben and him finding this out. I flared. But this time, it was worse than ever. The flare took over my entire body. Every inch of me becoming like fire, burning away at my skin. My head felt like someone had taken a jackhammer to it, and just continued to beat on it. I couldn't stand, couldn't move, I just fell to the floor. I finally blacked out.
I don't know how long I had been out for, but I found myself in the bunker still, my head laying on someone. I tried to move but I couldn't, my head still in a lot of pain. I opened my eyes a bit more, looking around the room as best as I could. Coop had magically appeared at my feet. It was still dark out. I waited a few more minutes, until the pain had faded mostly away, and then I tried to push myself up. A hand grabbed my arm and stopped me. I looked up and saw that last person I had expected to see, Ben. "Shhh, take it slowly" He said. I had been lying on his chest, and must have woken him when I moved. "You've been out of it for about 4 hours. Here, let me help." He gently moved my body up into a sitting position, leaning me against the wall. The pain was pretty much gone now, just a slight thudding in my head. When he was satisfied that I wasn't going to faint again, he looked at me and said "We need to talk".
Did ya'll like it? Hopefully this raised some new questions for ya! I tried to make it super long because I don't know the next time I'll be able to update. My Spring Break just ended so I start school tomorrow. Please Review! Have a great new week!
