I stared at the television in shock. What just happened..? Did we just witness Angel's death? My head was swarmed with so many thoughts. Climber looked outraged, Zombie looked speechless, Artist looked like he wanted to punch the television.
"Where are we going?.."
Climber:"Going to start a riot."
She said that while picking up a grappling hook.
Zombie:"Sounds like a plan."
We all got up, grabbed some stuff, and walked into the smoke.
I hugged him, saying goodbye to him and the bunny,told him to stay in the house,and ran off into the city ahead. Not knowing if I'll see my kid again after today.
I woke up to see Runner packin…
I sat on my couch, crying my eye out as I held the two animals close to my chest. My best friends..are dead.. I hated it. I blamed myself for my 3 friends deaths. If I went alone..I could've prevented the deaths.
"I.. I'm sorry guys.."
The Turtle and Dog were sitting on my lap, looking like they were crying too. Laying my head on the couch, crying uncontrollably, I then heard a knock on the door.
Cook and Pastafairan walked into the house,both looking like they've been in a fight. Cook had part of his antenna missing,Pasta had rope marks and bruises on her neck,both looking..burned?
Cook:"Merchant..do not go out there."
All three of us looked out of the window to see smoke,dead b…
I was walking around the neighborhood, upset about the situation. Everything looks deserted and lonely..Not like it used to be.
"Come on Lizard.."
I picked it up and carried It,well for a second because it gotten too heavy to carry. I spotted What I thought was a guard the distance.
"Oh geez!! I didn't recognize you for a while."
He turned around, wiping the blood off his face.
"What are you doing here?"
Angel:"Planning to get the guards off your guys backs."
Angel:"I know.. someone else tried to talk me out of it."
He crossed his arms a little, seeing bruises on them.
"And besides.. You're injured enough!"
Angel:"I don't have to look like my old self. I'll just be killed and it'll be don…
I was looking at the roof, trying not to wake mom up, who was sleeping in the bed next to me. The Bunny,who was laying on my lap,was trying to sleep as well.
"Can't sleep either Bunny?"
The reason I can't sleep,well..I get nightmares and flashbacks whenever I try to close my eye to sleep and I always wake up crying. And I feel bad for shooting that lady.
I looked over to see her by my bed, wearing a long nightgown that covered the bruises and marks. She did put medicine on them,so they would heal faster. But the cut on her lip might be staying for a while.
Demagogue:"Having troubles sleeping?"
She sat up,put me on her lap,and cradled me in her arms. She would always do this whenever I got sick…
I was looking at the sky, trying to ignore the stinging burns that racked my body. Good thing I was wearing my goggles. Or I could've gone blind or worse.
"Is.. Sailor dead?.."
I started to cry. I covered my face, letting the tears sting my face.
Runner:"L-let it out.."
We hugged each other, crying our eyes out. I hugged her tightly, letting my tears drip on my shirt. It burned.
"Wanna..go check on our dad..?"
Runner:"Ok.. I'll be right back.."
She ran over towards her friend, she told him where we were going.
Runner:"We'll be ok."
Zombie:"Ok.. just don't get hurt."
She hugged him,and ran back over to me and picked me up.
Runner:"Ready to go?"
Climber:"Before you guys …
I was sitting inside of the house with Dancer,my best friend and secret crush, eating a popsicle. Just trying to enjoy our day with no more people falling from the sky.
"Do you think those people are ok?"
Dancer:"Considering one of them died before they were able to get here..not really."
I finished my popsicle and threw the stick into the trash. I walked over to the window and saw fire in the distance.
"There's a fire!!"
He walked over to the window and stared out of the window with me,both of us horrified.
Dancer:"That is no fire caused by a accident.."
We walked out of the house to look around for anyone that needed any sort of help. The fire and smoke made the sky dar…
"They're probably dead!!!"
I was kind of having a mental breakdown. My siblings are nowhere to be found. Hopefully they're safe.
Scientist:"I'm sure they're ok Chemist.."
"Ok..not sure about the other 1%."
The door sounded like it was about to get knocked down because of the guards. Astronaut did put some equipment to help block it..but it looked like it wouldn't help for long.
Astronaut:"Ok..that will hold them."
As soon as he said that..the door broke.
"I thought you were sure it wouldn't!!"
I looked around for a window. Nope. An air vent? Yes but it's really small. The guards were surrounding us like hungry sharks.
Astronaut:"I was wrong…
I walked down the dark hallway of the lab, looking at a clipboard. It had all of the information about where the chips are in the bodies of the people who are locked up in here.
???:"Whatcha looking at?"
I looked over to see my old friend and lab partner,The Astronaut.
"Astronaut Don't scare me like that!"
Astronaut:"Not my fault you're easily startled."
I wanted to tell him why I was so on edge. How I accidentally killed that person with my electricity..I started shaking at that thought.
It was hard to see his face because of the helmet,but I could tell he looked shocked.
"I was doing a hallway patrol..when four people let out one of the captives. I…
I walked on the sidewalk, looking for my brother. I held the pocket knife, preparing to attack any sort of guard or cop. I searched through my old home I grew up in. Looking at my old bedroom kind of made me cry a little.
"I hope things end soon..so they can get back to normal.."
I then felt someone grab me by my braid.
I turned around to see my attacker. My eye widened seeing who it was.
No..it wasn't him..his eye was blank and dull,which is odd because he usually wears his eyepatch. He didn't show any sort of emotion as he pushed me into a mirror, shattering it and leaving me bloody and disoriented from the blow.
"Cook what's wrong with you?!..Snap out of it!"
He grabbed me by the braid again and proceeded…
Street Artist's POV:
I sat down on the grass, waiting for something to happen again. I looked at Zombie, who was sleeping next to a tree. I couldn't stop staring at the horrible burn scars All over his body, another reason the government's the worst.
"What did they do to you after the accident?"
Zombie:"They basically put me in complete isolation. My family wasn't even allowed to visit me. I was just in one room,not knowing when I'll be let out."
"I'm sorry for that.."
Zombie:"Now can I ask you a question?"
He paused, considering asking the question.
Zombie:"Where'd you get the scar on your face?"
I put my hand over the mark, feeling the knobby scar. I remembered the day that it happened.
