It was a tuesday afternoon and I had just got changed out of my uniform and I was putting my tie away when there was a sharp rap on the door. I quickly shut my closet and thought it strange that there would be someone wanting to see me. My parents were away for the week and I was left at home alone. I made my way down stairs and down the hall. I pulled the oak door towards me and looked outside. There stood a group of men in black army wear and red hats lead by a tall young woman.
"erm...hello?" I said wanting to know what they were doing at my house.
" what do you want?"
"you" said the woman. I stepped back but was sharply pulled forward by one of the men.
" let go of me!" I cried as I was dragged towards a black van...
"Sarah Jane!" said mr smith as Sarah Jane followed by Luke ran into the attic.
"what is it Mr Smith?" said Sarah Jane
" I detect UNIT on Bannerman road"
" WHAT?" said Sarah Jane " where?"
"outside 14 bannerman road" Repiled Mr Smith
Luke rushed to the window facing number 14 and sure enough a black UNIT van was parked outside the house.
"mum they have got someone and they are dragging her into the van" said Luke as he stared upon the scene in front of him.
" Mr Smith, do you know who live at number 14 and why UNIT would take them? Said Sarah Jane as she heard Luke's description of the happenings outside 14 bannerman road.
" the Marverlon family currently inhabits the premicese of number 14 bannerman road but they are away for the week and I don't know why UNIT would want someone who lives there" said mr smith in reply to Sarah Jane's question
" but don't the Marverlons have a daughter? Rose I think." luke piped up " she's in some of my classes"
" was she at school today?" Sarah Jane asked her son
" I'm sure of it" answered Luke
" but what would UNIT want with a fifteen year old girl?" said Sarah Jane to no one in particular
" but whatever they want with her" said Luke " we have to find out" and Sarah Jane nodded...
I was strapped down to a metal table. Large metal clamps locked my arms above my head and my ankles to the end of the table.
" what do you want with me?" I said timidly
" that's enough talk" said the young woman and she nudged a man next to her and gestured towards me. He pulled out a gas mask and pressed it over my nose and mouth. Suddenly a horrible smelling gas filled my lungs and the room began to spin. The faces staring down at me became blurred and were soon engulfed in a white fog that faded into a deep sleep.
" ok this is a very risky thing to do" said Sarah Jane as she grabbed her coat and her handbag
" you have to do everything I say and you have to be the most careful I can't let UNIT find out about you, now luke go call Rani and Clyde, we are going to need all the help we can get."
Luke pulled out his phone and called Rani and Clyde. They were at number 13 in a flash.
" gosh you guys are quick" said Luke as Rani and Clyde burst through the front door and almost collapsed onto the rug from exhaustion. When they recovered Clyde asked
"so what's the rush, luke said it was urgent"
" UNIT have taken Rose Marverlon prisoner and we have to find out why." said Sarah Jane as she came down the stairs.
" but we have to be very careful, if she wasn't only fifteen I wouldn't be doing this, do you understand me?" said Sarah Jane as she stared at all the faces around her. When they all nodded she said " ok let's go"
I woke to the sound of a soft ticking. I looked at the table next to my head and saw my pendent watch lying on the table. It was a present that I got for my 10th birthday. It was a clean silver with leaves engraved all over it. On the front a spectacular rose which is kind of symbolic since my name is Rose. I stared at it and wondered why it was here. I'm pretty sure I took it off I thought to myself. For fifteen minutes I tried unsuccessfully to get off the bed so I just lay there hoping I would be released soon.
Suddenly there were soft voices outside the door then the keyhole glowed red and the metal door swung open to reveal...
" ok everybody we're here" said Sarah Jane as she parked the car and climbed out. The three teenages got out of the car after her and followed her up to the entrance.
" how do you know we have got the right base?" luke asked his mum as he stared up at the big black building
" I got Mr Smith to track the van" she said as she pulled out her phone and showed them the path they had taken.
" ok then let's break in to UNIT"
Once the group had made it inside Rani suggested that they split up.
" well ok" said Sarah Jane then she turned to Clyde " I am trusting you to make sure UNIT doesn't find out about Luke. Please protect him oh and... " she trailed off before rumaging around in her handbag. And she pulled out a second sonic lipstick and handed it to luke.
" this may come in handy"
After that, the group spilt.
" ok Luke which way now?" asked Clyde 15 minutes after they had left Sarah Jane and Rani.
" I don't know my instincts say right" said Luke as her peered along each corridor.
" we'll my instincts tell me to go up, so I think we'll trust yours for the time being" said clyde as he lead the way along the right hand path.
They walked for several minutes until they reached a black metal door.
"let's look in here" whispered Luke
" good idea Lukey boy" Clyde whispered back.
Luke pulled out the sonic lipstick and pointed it at the locked door. There was a series of clicks and Luke and Clyde heaved the door open.
As the door swung and rested against the wall I saw two boys standing in the doorway. One of them was tall, skinny with pale skin, blue eyes and casually messy brown hair ( and was, i will admit, incredibly hot). The other had chocolate brown skin and matching eyes. He had short black hair and a small grin on his face, but I wasn't an evil grin like the soldiers it was friendly.
" Rose?" questioned the pale skinned boy...
