Hey guys. This is my second fanfic and I don't think it will be long. Hope you enjoy it though. By the way, this is after book 3. There won't be any communications between the rest of the series and this story.

Disclaimer: Look I don't own Maximum Ride everyone knows that and if you don't know it than it's your problem not mine. All I own is the storyline and how the characters are acting. Get it over with.

Chapter: 1

Darkness was swirling around her. She couldn't see a thing. All she felt, was dizziness. But eventually she tried to find something in the pitch black dark. Maybe a very little hint of light. Maybe someone's smiling face. Maybe something to hold on to. Something to live with. But she didn't find anything. Nothing. She heard someone calling her name. But as she searched, there was no one in the dark. And then she got it.

Her eyes were closed.

She slightly opened her eyes and was blinded by the white bright light. When the light was exceptable, she tried to look around and was shocked by the sight.

It was a white room filled with dog crates.

She was in a dog crate.

The moment she got it, she rushed to the iron bars, gripped them and shook them violently. Nothing happened, except her dizziness was gone. Another hand touched hers, she looked up and saw Nudge staring at her with horrified eyes. And by looking at her eyes, Max had to except the truth she was trying to deny.

They were taken by the school, again.


None of them remembered what happened. All they remembered was flying flawlessly, and when they woke up, all of them were in dog crates. The crates were small, very small. They couldn't even open their wings properly. Each of them was in a crate and the crates were kept in a half circle. It was started by Fang , than Max was next. After her were Nudge, Iggy, Gazzy and Angel.

'You okay?' Fang asked quietly and Max nodded. They were sitting like this for half an hour. The first fifteen minutes were a rush. All of them were horrified because Max wasn't waking up. And after she assured them that she was fine, all of them were shocked because they couldn't remember how they got here. Who brought them here. The room wasn't familiar and no one came to see them either. No whitecoats, no erasers. It was weird.

'Is anyone hurt?' Max asked, she was the last one to wake up.

'No. Everyone's fine.' Fang paused to take a breath. 'Who do you think it is?'

'Director Marian Janssen. Who else?' She glared at herself mentally. That psychopath. She should've at least broken her nose. 'It's the only option. She and her superman Omega. If she tell us to fight and finish each other again, than help me God…'

'Well, let's hope he didn't recover from the last attempt.' Fang suggested. 'Or may be at last he did understand that he can make decisions of his own.'

'Huh!' Max snickered. 'In your dreams.'

The only metal door of the room slid open as six erasers and the Director came in. They marched to them robotically and stood in position as the Director stood in front of the half circle.

'Weren't all the erasers expired?' Nudge whispered with surprise. But before Max could answer, Marian gave her orders.

'Take her out!' She shouted fiercely without glancing at any of them. 'We need to make sure that she actually has the qualifications to run the test.'

One eraser unlocked Max's crate door and another one dragged her out and locked her hands and her wings in two separate metallic bands. He dragged her and forced her to stand in front of the Director.

'Hello Maximum.' She mocked. 'Remember me?'

'Nope. Who are you, the daughter of a blue baboon who lives in a baconless hellhole?' Max smirked and the eraser who was holding her, elbowed on her back and forced her to kneel. But instead of keeping her head down, she looked up at the Director with rage and fury.

'Let me make this really clear to you Max.' The director hissed. 'You are here and you don't remember how. So you have to mention that my boys defeated you, and if you think that they can't, than you must know that I can kill you Maximum. All of you. And you are still alive because I want you to be alive. You are needed alive, it is not because of you want to live.'

'Uh-huh.' Max faked her shock. 'Looks like the pathetic, cold, pointless, wastoid at last thinks that I do matter and I am important.' Marian's eyes flashed with anger as she slapped Max across her face.

'And you should know when I'll do it, it won't be easy. You will feel the pain and the fear. You will regret that I kept you alive Maximum.' She gestured the eraser to let Max stand. 'And lastly, I'm warning you. Co-operate with us, you will be perfect. You try to make it good for yourself, they will die. Each time you try, each of them will be killed in front of you. And I will start with her.' She pointed at Nudge. 'So be very careful about what you say Max.'

'Wait.' Nudge shouted as they shoved her to move. 'Where are you taking her?'

'You'll know.' The Director smirked. 'And don't worry, once you know about it, you'll love it.'


They took her to a huge room surrounded by glasses. In the middle, there was a long metal rod sticking from the ground. They took her to the rod, unlocked her wrists and locked them in front of her with the rod in the middle of her hands so that she was facing the rod. She observed the metal band, it wasn't as large as the one around her wings, but surely it was strong enough to be unbreakable for a bird kid. And it was gripping her wrists tightly with the rod.

'I know you're a bit upset about that,' Marian gestured at her locked hands. 'But believe me, you'll like the test, well, it's just a warm up, but you'll like it.' She waved her hand at someone, and a door, which was far from Max, started to slid up.

When the door was fully up, and Max was able to see what was on the other side of the door, Max knew that there was no way she was going back perfectly.

'Oh, and I forgot to tell you one thing.' The Director kept talking. 'Our new generation of erasers, are a bit too better than the previous generation. Hope you enjoy your ride Maximum.'

And on the other side of the door were at least, a hundred erasers, grieving in bloodlust.

'You've got to kidding me.' Max whispered.
