Before you read this story there are a couple of things I must say
1. Thank you to my Beta Reader, Mysteriesunveiled
2. I got some of the idea for this story from Phoenix Fanatic. But I had wanted to do a story like this for a long time.
3. If you have a better title tell me
4. I am not sure if I will continue this story, but I leave that up for you guys to decide.
Why, Diary, am I calling you Bacon? Well, I can't really call you Bob or Phil.
That would just be weird. But bacon can be any gender I make it. I could make you a boy or a girl. So you see, Bacon is a very meaningful name. I think I might name my first kid Bacon. That is if I ever live that long, find someone I like, and get married. Seeing as there is a low chance of that happening, I will stick to writing in you, Bacon.
Now, how am I writing this if I'm blind? Being the oh-so-nice "brother" he is, Fang got me a computer for Christmas that reads out the words
as you type. However, it doesn't know how to say cuss words. I am truly bummed. But I quickly got over it due to what happened today. Shall I
tell you, Bacon?
I think I shall.
O' Dark Thirty in the Morning
I was having a wonderful dream about naked women surrounding me. Oddly enough I was clothed. We were just about to go to my room when a pillow hit me in the face. That woke me from my dream in a heart beat. I'm not talking a soft throw, no,
I mean a full out I-am-trying-to-kill-you throw. I immediately went into my
fighting mode. Seeing as I was half asleep and on the top of a bunk bed this
didn't turn out so well, and I landed on the floor. Luckily, I had a soft landing.
"Get the hell off me!" Fang shouted. I snickered at him.
"You shouldn't be cussing with little ones around," I said and rolled over to the side and got up. I heard Fang slowly stand up and start to walk out of the room. Before he was at the door way, he grumbled "Make breakfast." He then left like the winged emo he was. I rushed to the doorway and yelled down the stairs.
"That's what it was all about?" I said, laughing my head off. I took a breath of air. "You hit me with a pillow and cussed to get me up to make breakfast?"
Now I couldn't talk. I rolled on the floor laughing.
"Iggy, get your lazy butt down here or I'll destroy all your bombs" Max said.
I smiled but walked down the stairs, talking as I went.
"Well Max, seeing as bombs are supposed to be destroyed, I don't have anything to lose." I said as I walked into the kitchen. She growled. I quickly made some eggs and shoved them at the flock. All I got was a thank you before forks were scraped against plates. I started thinking about naked women again and trying to finish my dream when I heard footsteps close to me and whirled around in my chair.
"Hey, Iggy" Gazzy said.
"Hi Gazzy. Are we still making that bomb in the backyard today?" I whispered so Max wouldn't hear. Apparently she has instincts or something, because she did and was at our side in a flash.
"What bomb?" she growled. I snickered.
"Oh it's just a little one, Max. It won't do too much damage!" I heard Gazzy
say. You could hear the smile through his voice.
"Okay, if it's such a little one, then let's have everyone watch it get blown up," Max said with a triumphant voice.
Startled, I said, "I don't think that's such a good idea," all the noises in the kitchen had stopped while Max and I argued.
"It's just..." I didn't have a good excuse so I shut my mouth again.
Max smiled, "That's what I thought". I heard her footsteps recede and a door slammed. I groaned.
"Ugh. Come on, Gazzy. Let's go make that bomb." I walked out the door to the back yard and heard Gazzy following me. It was a warm day, and I unfolded my wings a little. We got to work, and in a half an hour we were finished with the coolest bomb ever.
"I'll go get the others," I told Gazzy. "And don't blow it up yet!" I said as I ran in the house. The only problem with running when you are blind is you can't hear as much stuff so you don't know when you're about to run into a...
"Wall!" I groaned as I fell on the floor. I heard laughing and looked up. Of course I only saw blackness.
"Are you okay, Iggy?" It was Ella. I blushed, jumped up quickly, and swayed a little from the fall.
"Yeah, I'm fine," we stood there in awkward silence for a little while. "Um, the bomb's ready. I was just going to get everybody."
"Oh, okay. I can go tell everyone so you don't run into any more walls," I heard her laugh and run up the stairs. Brilliant, Iggy. I walked outside and heard everyone talking.
I cleared my throat.
"Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the Awesome Bomb!! AKA, AB!" I heard some snickering, but I pressed on. "Drum roll please!" I heard some one hitting the plastic table that's on the porch. I quickly lit the bomb and ran to where everyone else was.
Before I shouted one, I heard Gazzy say something, "Wait, something's wrong".
I was trying to figure out what was wrong when I heard Gazzy yell, "Everyone hit the deck!" I dove to the floor right as the bomb went off. The explosion was so great that I was thrown against someone. Then I felt a weird prick in my back and a pair of rough hands grabbed me. What's happening? I felt my energy draining from me and then I closed my eyes.
I woke up in the back of a truck. From all the bounces and bumps, I figured we were on a dirt road.
"Where am I?" I asked but only got a kick in the stomach. My wrists and legs were tied with thick ropes.
"Shut up!" said a rough voice. I tried not to panic and felt around for everyone else. They were here and awake.
"Iggy, is that you?" Nudge whispered so the big guy wouldn't kick her.
"Yeah, we need to get out of here," I said and shifted my weight to my back. I heard Max whisper in a breath. "I have a plan."
A few minutes later, I heard Max shouting, "Ow! My knee!"
The big guy got up. "What?" he said and walked toward Max.
She gasped, "The rope is too tight! My knee! It's getting crushed and cutting off the circulation! They'll have to amputate it!" Now, obviously her act was fake, but the big guy didn't know that, and he wasn't the brightest crayon in the box.
"Fine, I'll untie them," he bent down and quickly untied her ropes.
She sighed. "Thanks, but can I stand a little and get the blood flowing again?" Max asked. He grunted, which Max took for a yes and stood. After this, I heard fists punching someone, a few hard kicks, and then a sickening crack. I heard Max panting, and knew she had gotten the guy.
"Is he dead?" I heard Nudge squeak out.
"I don't know. But we're going to be if we don't get out soon." Max came over to me and untied my knots on my wrists and legs. "Help the others," I nodded and went to Nudge. In a matter of minutes, everyone was free. We opened the truck door. Ella was kidnapped too, so Fang and I grabbed her and jumped out of the moving truck. If that wasn't an adrenaline rush I don't know what is. She's was a little heavy, but we managed to fly home quickly.
When we were all there, we ran inside.
"Everyone pack up. We need to get out of here" Max said. We all nodded and hurried to our rooms. Itex will know where we are. It sucks that we'll have to leave but I've been on the run before. I threw some clothes, my laptop, and my ipod into a backpack and headed down stairs. In matter of minutes, we were packed and in the family room.
"I called a cab, which will be here in 5 minutes." I nodded and we sat down.
Ella was sitting next to me, which made me blush. That is until she jumped up, startling me.
"Wait! What about my mom? She's at work. How do you think she's going to react if we're gone?" Well, we didn't think about that.
"Let's call her" Max said simply, and then went into the kitchen to get the phone.
She came back and handed it to Ella. I heard Ella dial her mom's work phone. After a couple of silent moments, Ella's mom picked up.
"Hi, Mom. Something happened to the flock and me today." I couldn't hear the other end of the conversation, but I could tell by the way Ella had to keep saying "We're fine" that her mom was freaking out. Ella hung up after awhile.
"She says that there's a hotel in town not far from here that we can stay at"
We all loaded into the cab when it got to the house and started off.
We arrived at the hotel about an hour or so later. We got three rooms. After we had unpacked a little, we went down to the buffet that they had. It was delicious. I asked if we could go to the pool.
"And why do you want to go to the pool?" Max asked. I rolled my eyes like it was obvious.
"For the pool bunnies, of course!" Well, that didn't seem to go over well with Max.
Later, I turned on my laptop and plugged in some head phones and started to write this journal entry.
There you have it Bacon, my weird and awful day. Now we are on the run again. We will have to keep moving. To where? I have no clue. All I know is that Itex has come back and wants us. The only thing that is bothering me is why they
Good night, Bacon.
Like I said before, I don't know if I will continue this story. If you want me to just tell me. Thanks!
It would be very nice if you clicked that button at the bottom.
