All of our memories so close to me, just fade away, all this time you were pretending, so much for my happy ending, - Avril Lavigne,
Chapter 1 -
7 hissed in agony. She registered 9 standing hunched up beside her, and the twins clutching each other and crying. She fell to her knees, groaning in pain.
"What's happening to us?" She yelped, panting.
"I- don't- know!" 9 managed to reply, before collapsing onto the ground. 3 and 4 both gave a sudden violent shudder, and passed out, curled up into tight balls. 7 gasped and tried to rush to their aid, but another burst of pain rolled over her, and she couldn't hold back her screams any longer. Her ear-splitting screech echoed over the Emptiness. She felt 9 grasp hold of her hand, but she saw nothing but swirling blackness. She lay down on her side, twitching. She felt as though a thousand knives were being stabbed into her at once, attacking her from every direction. It was even worse than the time where she had been shot in the leg, and had hung off of the side of a fighter plane, with 9 and 1 clinging onto the needle stuck in her burlap. A final shudder ran through her body, and she fell unconscious, dead to the world.
7 awoke feeling… different. She went to rub her face – and froze. She stared at her hand. It wasn't metal and wood, it was flesh and blood! What the heck was going on? Her eyes drifted from her hand, and her gaze fell upon two small children lying on the ground. They were identical, apart from the fact that one was male and one was female. That must be the twins! She thought, rushing over to see them. They were sleeping, looking very tired, and she knew that she probably shouldn't wake them; but she was so panicked she wasn't thinking straight. 7 took hold of their shoulders and shook them.
"Wake up guys! Wake up, wake up, it's dangerous out here!" The young boy began to open his eyes, but nearly had a heart attack when he saw who was kneeling over him. A human! He wriggled away from 7 and tried to jump up and run away, but she grabbed hold of his wrist and sat him back down.
"Don't panic! It's me, 7!" He looked at her with disbelief in his eyes, but he recognized her voice, so settled down a little.
"Now, I need you to wake your sister up while I get 9. Can you do that?" 7 asked. 3 nodded slowly and began poking his twin. 7 walked over to 9, who was lying on his side. She had to bite back a laugh when she saw he was drooling. He looked so sweet that she found herself just watching at him, with a small smile on her face. He's just so cute… 7 shook her head roughly. What was she thinking? You're a warrior, you don't find guys CUTE! She leaned towards him.
"9…" She whispered, "9 wake up…"
"Ungh… Five more minutes…" He groaned, not opening his eyes.
"No, you have to get up NOW! It's important!" She said, prodding his chest with her forefinger. 9 sat up, but the smile was quickly wiped off of his face.
"What the…" His eyes were wide with horror, and he was turning as white as a sheet. "Is… is this some weird dream or something?"
"No. I have no idea what's going on, but it looks like we've been turned into humans." An idea came into her head. "Maybe we should look in the library. There might be a book with something about this in it." 4 was, by then, awake, and she and 3 were eavesdropping on 7 and 9. She walked forward, nodding eagerly. Then she made some kind of sign with her hands, looking at 3. He nodded and made a different sign back to her. They grinned madly and began having what could have been a conversation, their hands working at a pace the two adults could have never kept up with.
"I guess I should have let them teach me sign language." 7 sighed. 9 laughed weakly, the colour starting to return to his face. They both stood up, signaling for the twins to follow them.
"This journey shouldn't take as long now that we're this big"
"Wow," 9 commented when they reached the library, "This place is so… well… strange from this perspective." 4 nodded in agreement, before grabbing her twins hand and dragging him inside.
"And then they're off somewhere to look at something. Leaving us to find what we actually came here for." 7 laughed.
"Come on, 9, we should start searching for a book that might have some answers." They wandered into the library, but they still hadn't found anything of use after twenty minutes. The twins suddenly popped out of nowhere, leaping in front of 7 and 9. 7 just chuckled, but 9 gave a yell of surprise and jumped a foot into the air. 3 proudly showed 7 a piece of paper, with writing scrawled over the page. It read: 7, 9, we found a book that explains what happened to us, but it would take forever to show you, so here are the basics: The talisman can give us life and, as we have seen, take it away as well. It can emit a certain wave of energy that would change all of the particles in our body, and transform our physical form. But we still have the same knowledge, mind and memory as we did when we were ragdolls. The talisman can do the same thing and change us back, but we haven't yet figured out how to get it to do that, so we are kind of stuck like this for a while – 3 and 4. 7 looked at them blankly.
"We… We're trapped like this until you find out more about the talisman?" The twins looked awkward, and 4 bit her lip, but eventually 3 gave a shaky nod. 7 moaned and buried her face in her hands.
"So we need to figure out how to change back…" 9 murmured, looking thoughtful.
"Oh well done on pointing out the obvious, 9! You're such an idiot!" 7 snapped, glaring at him. 9 looked at her with an injured expression, his lower lip trembling, his eyes welling with tears. 7's face softened, and she took a step towards him.
"Oh 9, I'm so sorry! I didn't mean that! I'm just not feeling in a good mood right now." 9 looked at her warily, sniffing. 7 sighed loudly and pulled him into a hug. He blushed, but he certainly wasn't complaining. 4 waggled her eyebrows at 7.
"Stop it!" 7 squeaked, her face turning as red as a beetroot. She quickly released 9 from the hug, mumbling something unintelligible. 3 signed something to her but she just shook her head.
"I don't understand sign language." She reminded him. 3 turned to his twin. They both grinned and scribbled something on the back of the paper. Looks like we're going to have to write our messages for you! 7 rolled her eyes.
"Be glad you two at least taught 9 and I to read!"
To be continued…
That was a very random chapter with a lot of OOC, useless crap and unrealistic reactions. If I became a stitchpunk, I would absolutely freak! I'm not very good at writing, so please forgive me for this. And just to make things clear, I started writing this BEFORE I started read 'After the End,' so don't say I'm copying. BTW, yes, 4 is a girl in this. I know how much everyone hates that, but don't bother nagging me; I've got better things to do than reply. And just so you know, I like writing song/book/movie quotes at the starts of chapters, they're not usually related to the chapters.
