I do not own VICTORiOUS.
Now, onto the story….
The clock kept counting down, but to what, we just didn't know. But what we did know was that in 7 minutes and 30 seconds, something was going to happen.
Andre was the first to speak in what seemed like an eternity. "You think it's for real?"
What a stupid question. Was all I thought. I didn't answer, I just continued staring at the clock.
I could hear Tori rustling around in her cage, and looked over to see what she was doing. Her and Andre's were next to each others, and Tori had moved to sit at the end of her cage that was closest to Andre.
"I'm not sure.." She said to him, in almost a whisper.
"I just don't want anything to happen to you.." Andre whispered back, and mustve realised he said it outloud and looked around the room at the rest of us. "Any of you." He added.
I rolled my eyes, and just looked back at the clock.
I looked over to where Cat's cage was located and had to stop myself from frowning. Cat had her arm reached out to me in between the spaces in the bars of her cage. Her normally smiling face was now plastered with confusion mixed with sadness. I still don't think she understood what was happening, but she was craving some comfort.
Don't show emotion, Jade. You heard what the midget said. Don't show him who you're close with, he'll use them against you.
"What Cat?" I said, firmly, looking over at her with zero emotion.
"Whats happening?" She asked softly.
I stared at her for about 10 seconds, giving her no answer. I kept contemplating in my mind whether to tell her the truth, or lie.
"Nothing is going to happen Cat.." Robbie pitched in. His and Cats cages were also next to each other, and he had moved close to Cat's cage and held her hand through the gaps in the bars.
My eye twitched slightly. Great, now if Robbie does something wrong, they'll use Cat to punish him. Idiot. I thought.
"You promise?" Cat asked, now looking at Robbie.
"I prom-" He started.
"Don't. You Dare."
Everyone looked over at me as I finished talking. I was glaring at Robbie with my famous Jade Stare.
"What?" He asked, almost defensively.
"Don't even think about lying to her. You can't promise anything, no one can."
"Jade.." Beck started, trying to warn me to calm down, but I didn't care at the moment. Someone had to be honest and harsh to keep all these people in line and away from insanity.
I looked over at Cat, who seemed to be extremely confused now. "Cat, we've been kidnapped." She gasped slightly, her mouth opening, not too wide, but not too small. "And the bad people that have kidnapped us are going to hurt us."
I glared back at Tori in return, then continued my gaze with Cat who had now starting crying. I had to swallow the lump that was growing in my throat.
Don't cry. Do not cry. She'll get over it.
I had to force myself to look away from cat, who now had her head rested against the bars of her cage, next to Robbie, who was still holding her hand trying to calm her down by shhhhhing her.
I focused my attention back on the giant clock.
I could feel someone looking at me, but I tried to ignore it.
Omg, stop looking at me.
Ugh. I rolled my eyes and looked over at Beck, who hadn't stopped looking at me since the man left.
"What? Someone had to be harsh." Was all I said, and shrugged.
"Good." He replied.
Huh? "Good?" I asked him, slightly confused.
"I know someone did, and no one else has the guts to tell Cat the truth, so I'm glad you did."
I smiled slightly and kept looking at him. His perfect hair, his deep dark eyes, his perfect jawline, the way he looked so much more tan than usual in his white hospital outfit.
I sighed and looked back over at the clock.
"Please come here.." I heard a faint voice say.
I tried to ignore it, there's no way I was going anywhere near there. Tori, Andre, Robbie and Cat had already given away their weaknesses, no way I'm giving up mine.
"They're going to figure it out sooner or later Jade, may as well enjoy these next 5 minutes and.." He stopped and looked up at the clock, then back at me. "12 seconds." He finished.
He had a point, and I hated it. We had 5 minutes and 12, well 11 now, seconds left with each until, god knows what will happen to us.
I bit down on my lip, and ran a though my tangled hair, before I gave in. I sighed and shuffled over to him, resting my back against the cold metal, and turned my head to face him. I felt him hold onto my hand and I almost pulled my hand away, but remembered that this was quite possibly the last time.
Everyone was doing their own thing.
Tori and Andre were currently talking about how they met, and all the fun times they've had together.
Cat had calmed down slightly and I think I could hear Robbie singing something that sounded like 'I think your swell' and something like that.
And here I was, holding Becks hand, and looking into his eyes.
"Am I a bad girlfriend?" I asked after about 2 minutes. Within the final 2 minutes of the countdown, I figured now I would be a great time to just know everything.
Beck almost seemed taken aback by this, but he finally answered, "You're the best thing that has happened to me. Your my perfect girlfriend."
I couldn't help but smile. After the 3 years me and Beck had dated, I don't think he has ever said anything like that.
"I wish I could kiss you." I said faintly.
Beck brought up his hand that wasn't holding mine, and blew me a kiss. I giggled slightly and pretended to catch it. This was so not me, acting all cute and whatever it was we were doing right now, but hey, love does this to you.
Tori's voice brought me and Beck out of our state.
"1 minute guys."
I looked over at the clock and my eyes widened.
56 seconds. Omg.
Once again the room was silent. I had moved away from Beck and now sat myself in the middle of the cage, staring once again at the countdown.
I could see through the corner of my eye that everyone had done the same, no one was near anyone, everyone just sat down in the middle of their cages, staring at the clock.
My heart was beating faster than it ever had, it was a weird feeling.
In 30 seconds, something was going to happen. I had a hunch of what it was. That someone was going to get taken away and we wouldn't hear from them until they got back and they were unconscious or shivering or something terrible.
Why is time going to slow? I didn't know whether I wanted the time to speed up, or slow down. I just wanted to know what was going to happen in 23 seconds! Or did i? I don't know!
No ones P.O.V
No one said a word. Not even Cat. She was biting down on her fingernails, well, what was left of them anyway. Tori was pulling at the ends of her hair. Robbie was twiddling with his shirt. Andre was biting down on his lip. Jade was digging her fingernails into the cold ground and Beck was holding his breathe, whether it was unknowingly or not.
Here it comes. They all thought at the same time.
Just then, exactly on cue, the small man walked in with his clipboard and the 2 men who had followed him in.
"I must say, you're a very interesting bunch." He said, not looking up from his clipboard. He flipped over a page and stared at the 2nd page, before flipping It back down and looking up at the teenagers.
"This is what I'm getting from you guys.." he said, with an amused smile, and walked over to Cat and Robbie's cages. "You.." He pointed at Cat. "Are a bit, how do I put it? Slow." He chuckled to himself. "and you my friend.." He said, now pointing at Robbie. "Really like it." He chuckled again.
He was starting to walk over to Andre's cage when one of the tall men walked over to him.
"Carl, they're on a tight schedule, just get him and go."
The short man, Carl, sighed. "Fine." He said and rolled his eyes before taking a key out of his pocket.
Everyone in the room gulped. Just get him and go. Get him.
He was already standing in front of the cage he needed, so he put the key into the lock and turned it. "Oliver, Harold, get him and meet me in room 17." Carl said before turning and leaving the room.
"No! Don't touch him!" Tori screamed, reaching through the bars to reach Andre.
Oliver and Harold reached into Andre's cage and grabbed him by the ankles to drag him out.
Everyone in the room was screaming, begging the 2 men to let him go, but they didn't.
They then grabbed him by the arms and started dragging him out of the room, put Andre put up a fight. It took them about 1 and half minutes to actually get Andre out of the room and close the door behind them.
By the time it was over, Tori was an emotional wreck, sobbing hard and reaching both of her hands desperately trying to get to Andre.
Cat was also sobbing. Seeing one of her close friends get taken away like that.
The room was once again left in silence. Well, if you exclude the emotional sobbing and heaving breathing.
Im not really 'happy' about this one, but it kinda had to be done aha.
Now I know Jade seems OOC in this, which is why I had her explain why she was doing it to you ! hehe
So, did you enjoy it ?!
What do you think Andre's drug is and his reaction?
