She was running. She had a small baby in her arms. She looked over her shoulder and gasped.
"You can't take my baby! You can't take Gabby!"
I sat up straight in bed. I was panting and sweating. Then memories flooded back to me. I looked around. Where was I? Where's that gigantic monster? I stood up and realized I was a little dizzy. Okay a lot dizzy. I used the wall for support as I walked to the door. I opened it up and heard voices.
"We need her! She's the key!" a boy said. The same boy who was talking in my head.
"She's a hazard to both you and herself!" Another man said. I took a few steps and the voices silenced. I heard footsteps coming my way.
"Gabby?" The boy asked. I tried to run, but I ended up falling…right into the boys arms. I groaned. He then scooped me up, bridal style, and walked away from my room.
"She's awake…barely" He said. I groaned and tried to push myself out of his arms, but he held on to me.
"You shouldn't have drugged her" He said. They drugged me? I looked at the other man. Everything was a little blurry, but I could tell he had a really big head.
"Quite a trouble maker, are we?" The man asked, taking a step towards me. I tensed and turned away from him, into the boy's chest.
"Maldark, your scaring her!" The boy said. Maldark? Maldark is a fictional game character…until he escaped from the game, but Lyle, Dante and Wyatt put him back…didn't they?
"She shouldn't be scared! I am her uncle" Maldark said. I grabbed onto the boy and twisted.
"Ow!" He said, setting me down and trying to inspect his bruise I gave him. I made a run for it.
"Darn it, David!" Maldark said. I was still a little woozy, but I could still run like the devil was chasing me! Well…something like that. I saw a door ahead of me. I smiled and ran for it.
"No! She's near the exit!" Maldark yelled. I ran faster. I finally made it to the door. I threw it open. Sunlight and cars and streets and everything that meant civilization. I ran outside.
"Where do you think you're going?" David said, catching up to me and grabbing my arm.
"Home" I spat. He chuckled.
"You know, I always knew you were a feisty one. I could tell when my father killed your mother" He whispered, pulling me close to him. I looked at him. I finally could see details. Wavy black hair, a nice tan skin, and beautiful brown eyes. I realized he was trying to talk to me in my head. I grabbed his wrist and pulled it off. I then said some… things, which were not very nice and turned around and walked away.
"You're going the wrong way you know. Safety's inside" He said. I rolled my eyes and continued walking.
"Hey. I know you don't trust me or Maldark but you should at least be smart enough not to walk around in just…that" He said, gesturing to what I was wearing. I looked down and expected to see my jeans and peace sign t-shirt, but instead, I was wearing a white nightgown with a gauze wrapped around my chest.
"Who changed me" I growled.
"Um…" David said.
"You'd better be hoping that I don't rip your head off for changing my clothes you pervert!" I half yelled half whispered.
"Look. I did change you, but I didn't do your gauze. Just the nightgown…sorry" He said. I wanted to run over there and strangle him…but I didn't instead, I walked over to him.
"I-I'm sorry. I overreacted. But I can't go back in there. Maldark is evil" I said. David looked at me.
"I'm gonna tell you a secret. I don't work for Maldark. I work for Max Ross. That's Max right in there, he's trying some new character prototype thing" He said. I still doubted him, but when I walked back inside, I saw a man with brown hair and a stubble.
"Sorry. I'm Max. Your uncle" He said, holding out his hand. Before I could refuse the shake, I heard the door slam.
"MAX! Gabby's been- Gabby?" Wyatt said, stopping dead in his tracks when he saw me.
"Dante! Wyatt!" I yelled. I ran over to them and hugged them.
"We were so worried! What happened to you?" Wyatt asked. I shrugged.
"Not sure really. All I remember is a gooey leak with brown eyes" I said. I looked over and saw the big brother of one of my biggest bullies at my school.
"Your Vanessa's big brother, aren't you?" I asked. He looked at me and nodded.
"She bullies you, doesn't she?" He asked. It was my turn to nod. I turned back to Dante.
"Where did that monster thing go?" he asked. I shrugged, then looked at David. He was walking away from us.
"I'll be right back" I said, walking towards David before they could respond.
"That was you wasn't it?" I asked. He nodded. He looked up at me.
"I-I'm sorry…for kidnapping you" He apologized.
"And for talking inside my head" I said. He gave me a questioning look.
"I never talked inside your head" He said. I thought for a moment. Then, out of the blue, my knees gave out. I grunted as my head hit the floor. I couldn't move. I felt David scoop me up into his arms, bridal style, and run to the room I woke up in. I tried to tell him that I was okay, but no words came out of my mouth. Then, I couldn't see. Everything was black. I could feel myself drift away from reality and life, but I fought. I didn't win. I finally gave in to the darkness. I didn't die, but I was in a sleep mode sort of thing. I couldn't hear or see anything. Until the voice in my head talked to me again.
Your causing quite a mess, you realize that, don't you? He said.
Who are you? What do you want from me? I thought. He chuckled.
As I said before, your power. He said.
You didn't answer my first question. Who are you? I thought.
I am your worst nightmare.
