Th Guy With Wings wanted this story, so I'll make this story! Tell me if this sucks or not!
Without Further Adieu (For those new to my stories, this is basically my trademark)
I woke up before my eyes opened. Something wasn't right and I listened. There were hushed voices. Before I could panic, I realized that it was the Flock. But then the voices turned into words.
"But it's not right-"
"We have to."
"Because it's better for us."
"She is getting worse…"
"So when do we leave?"
"But what if she follows us? She could track our scent before."
"It's already taken care of."
"Oh, I did."
At this exchange, I jumped up. While doing so, I realized that there was something around my neck. It felt like a metal collar. I saw the flock with backpacks on their backs getting ready to fly off.
"Where are you going?" I asked sarcastically, "Out for a late night fly? Getting groceries?"
Gazzy and Fang looked at their feet guiltily. My eyes widened at that. They were going to leave me behind. And without a note, too.
"We're leaving Max," Angel glared icily at me, "And you can't stop us."
"Why would I stop you?" I raised an eyebrow at her, "I mean, even if I could take all of you on, what's stopping you from leaving later?"
"You're not going to even try?" Nudge asked hurtfully.
I whirled on her, "Don't act like you're the one who should be hurt! You're the one who wanted to leave!"
"You're making a big mistake," Dylan hissed at them. I still had one person on my side? Okay then. Great!
"And look who comes to her rescue," Fang sneered jealously, "Hello Mr. Perfect."
I looked at Dylan and saw that he was also wearing a metal collar. It had an Itex logo on it.
"Sorry Max," Angel looked like she had won a huge battle, but was strangely apologetic, "Sorry Dylan. But this is the only way,"
And right after that, a shock went through the collar that knocked me out right away. But I wasn't fully unconscious. I felt a hand petting my hair, a hand touching my cheek, and a set of lips brushing mine before I heard a big flapping of wings.
One person had stayed behind for a quick goodbye.
"Bye Max," Iggy's voice was tear filled, "And I'm sorry for what's going to happen to you two. But we had to sell you out. They said they'd stop hunting us altogether if we sold you out."
"Coward," I managed to choke out, "Traitor."
And then I heard him fly away. Sometime later, I was picked up into strong arms. Familiar arms. Arms that had done a lot of hurt to me.
"Hey birdies!" Ari chirped, "Time to go home! Home to the School!"
