8. Legging It

I walked briskly, keeping my eyes down, only looking up occasionally to see which ward i was in and how to get to the exit. My newly found wings, sore, and dogdey on my shoulder blades, felt like a ton of bricks on my back. 'Just keep walking, dont look up' and what did i do? Looked up, just as Scarlet walked out of the girls bathroom, she frowned when she saw me. "Seth? What are you doing? Your meant to be resting" She said, her voice going up an octave. I put my hand over her mouth,"Look Scarlet, we need to get out of here, like, right now. Okay? Just follow me."

"But your Mom.."

"Scarlet trust me, the further away from here we are, the better." I took her hand, and continued to walk briskly down the corridors, the exit was close. "Should just be around this bend.." And sure enough it was. It was the thing infront of the door that made me stop in my tracks. Three men, all in black tailored suits, stood talking to a nurse. They looked exactly like the guy who I'd knocked out less than five minutes ago. I turned to Scarlet,"Scarlet, when i say so, bolt for the door, okay? Dont hesitate. If you do, were both done for." She went to protest, but stopped when she saw the cold, sincere look on my face.


"On three," Another nod from her. "One.." One of the three men turned his head to me,"Two" Now all three were looking at me, walking toward me. "Three!" She bolted, distracting the agents just long enough for me to get in close. I swung around the back of the first one, clocking him in his well toned jaw, felt like punching a block of iron. The second guy was closing in, his fist raised. I ducked as he threw the punch, jabbing him four times in the ribs, winding him. Finally, the last guy managed to land a hit on me. And boy did it hurt. What felt like an aluminuim bat smacked into my stomach, making me stumble to the ground. He picked me up with both arms, as if i were a toy. Without thinking or hesitating, i thought 'Unfurl your wings' I waited 'Now' As i did the jacket i had on was ripped to shreds, screams were all around me, from nurses patients, doctors, and the guy who'd had a hold of me, was now slammed against the back wall, both of his arms looking useless, and broken.

I took off through the automatic doors to find Scarlet waiting nervously by an ambulance, she started talking frantically when she saw me, but i was running and could only think of one thing, 'Fly'. i scooped my girlfriend up in my arms, kept running, feeling adrenaline and pure, raw energy coursing through my body that i hadnt felt three days ago. My wings unfurled, and i took off, into the cold night air, watching a crowd of people gather at the hospitals exit  to get a glimpse of me. Whatever the hell i was.
