11. Confusion.

My eyes couldn't have been deceiving me, could they?
"So, you actually came did you?" Said the man laughing evilly at the one that had caught me. "Funny how things work out huh?"
"Everything that has to do with you, Simon, is not even close to becoming funny." Said such a familiar voice
"J-Joshua??" I said slowly and confusedly. He looked down at me and smiled. "H-how did you get here? I-I thought you di-"
"We can talk later" he said as he reached the ground and placed me carefully on my feet.
"But h-"
"so tell me Joshua, what brought you here on this delightful night?" The man asked, who's name I'm guessing was Simon like Joshua said.
"You know exactly why." Joshua said with an evil glare in his eyes as he stared at Simon.
"Oh come now Joshua your sister is here, you don't want to fight in front of you little sister now do you?" Simon said with an evil smirk on his face.
'How does he know we're siblings?' I asked myself.
"Simon, you will not ever come near my sister again" Joshua said standing in front of me. 'Joshua's... Protecting me... No... How? He was... Murdered...'
"Oh so it seems your sister is confused. Maybe you should consider telling her the truth?" Simon said.
"YOU WILL NOT TALK TO ME ABOUT TRUTH SIMON" Joshua yelled. He jumped in the air with something in his hands, suddenly it grew, more and more until it became a sword. "LEAVE MY SISTER OUT OF THIS!"
Joshua thrust the sword at Simon but it didn't pierce him...
"You didn't actually think I'd be stupid enough to come here for real, did you?" Simon asked laughing evilly "your even dumber then before. Joshua, listen to yourself, you tell me to keep your sister out of this but, it is really you that has brought her into this now isn't it?"
Joshua's head faced the ground.
"Stop your babbling Simon." Colton said stepping forward. I looked over at him, he had a long sword like Joshua's in his hands. "Why do you need to step into every little thing?"
"Oh Colton, Colton, Colton... Have you become blinded as well? Shall I show you the light to truth?"
Simon had started laughing evilly which made Joshua stop.
"It seems I've run out of time, oh what a pity..." Simon said with an evil smirk. "Don't you worry yourselves Joshua and Colton, ill be back for you, and I haven't forgotten you little Carter"
All those times I saw him... All those dreams.... They were... Really of this man? He is really real? How can this be? How can Joshua... Still be alive? I d-don't understand any of this...
"Colton, you must take Carter and get her back to the base. I can't risk her getting hurt out here... She's an open target..." Joshua said as his sword shrunk and he stuck it in his pocket.
"Yes, of course." Colton said. Colton walked over to me. "Your not hurt are you?"
I couldn't answer all this happening at once shocked me... I couldn't speak.
"Carter?" Colton shook me. I just stood there like a statue not giving any response. Finally as Colton shook me again my eyes started to water.
"J-joshu-" I couldn't finish saying his name before I collapsed into Colton's arms. My hands, arms and legs all began to ache. I looked at my hands they were bleeding. The bars cut my hands... Everything began to get blurry. Colton helped my stand up straight. Joshua rushed over to me.
"Carter... I-I'm so, so sorry... This is my fault..." Joshua said hugging me.
"J-Joshua... I'm so- so happy you-your alive..." I said hugging him back. "I th-thought y-ou were m-murdered...."
I began sobbing into Joshua's shoulder.
"It's alright now Carter, ill explain everything tomorrow." Joshua said as he pulled away and dried some of my tears. I nodded. Joshua handed me to Colton and he just ran... He ran faster then I've ever seen. Joshua disappeared into the dark night. Colton helped me walk back to our team group, they had no idea what had just happened... Only between me Colton and Joshua.
"It seems Carter has either twisted badly her ankle or broken her foot, I'm taking her back to the school, your only down one you should still win. Your main captain now Silvia." Colton said as we both walked past them towards the train. Silvia nodded. I saw Hayley watching me with worried eyes. But I just returned her worried look with a nice smile.

We walked back to the train tracks and waited. We both sat in the ground side by side.
"Colton?" I said as I picked some of the grass.
"hmm?" Colton said as he sat back and looked up at the sky.
"Could you please tell me what was going on? Why is my brother still alive? How is he still alive? Who is this Simon guy? How do you know Joshua? How do-"
"wow... I'm gonna stop you there, I'm sure you have millions of questions, but in not the person you should be asking, you can ask Joshua these questions tomorrow." Colton said. My face must have shown sadness because Colton pulled me into a side hug. Colton then stood up with his arm still around me. The train started coming, closer and closer. "On three we jump, okay? Don't worry I'll make sure we both make it on safely."
I nodded.
"One" Colton said looking at me with a reassuring smile.
"Two" I said smiling back.
"Three!" We said together. We jumped and grabbed ahold of the train. Colton smoothly jumped through the door and pulled me along with him. We made it through. Colton lifted his arm off of me and sat down. I sat down beside him. My stomach for some reasons started doing flip flops, but I ignored them. I kept my eyes looking away from Colton. After we sat in the train for a while we finally came to our "stop." Colton stood up and I followed. I limped to the edge and got ready to jump off. I jumped first. I flew off the train and hit the hard stone. My ankles couldn't hold me so I fell and hit my knees, my ankles twisted even more and now my knees began to bleed. I had the erg to scream out in pain, but Colton jumped off right after me and helped me up. I couldn't scream with him looking at me...
"We have to hurry and get you back." Colton said as he grabbed my arm and put it around his shoulder and put one of his arms around me waist so he supported my weight. We walked through the woods, back down the path into the "box", around many houses, and back into the "school". Colton took me to a part of the building I've never been. It had a bed and a bathroom.
"This is the healing room, if someone was sick and recovering, or hurt like you, they stay here till there healed enough to resume training. You'll miss a lot so I'll try's an give you small lessons during your absence." Colton said as I sat on the bed. I nodded. "It's still early so you can try and get a few more hours of sleep before Breakfast."
"Okay..." I said as I looked down at the floor.
"I'll be back soon" Colton said as he walked to the door. I nodded. He closed the door.
'How am I suppose to sleep in this room with none of my friends in this crazy school place? How am I suppose to sleep when Joshua is still alive and Colon was answer my questions?' I asked myself. Even though I didn't seem tired my body was beginning to shut down. I laid down in the bed and shut my eyes. In just a few seconds my whole body fell asleep.

I heard water running which made me wake from my sleep. I stayed still in the bed but I opened my eyes to see who it was. The bathroom door was open and I saw a figure in the bathroom either brushing there teeth or washing there face. I looked over at the window which had curtains across it, hardly any light into the room but the light above my head was on. I saw the person who was in the bathroom take a step back. It was Joshua. I sat up a little but them began to feel a pain in my stomach, arms, legs... Well pretty much everywhere.
"Ouch..." I said just above a whisper.
"Carter, your awake" Joshua said walking out to my bed. "I'm sure you have plenty of questions for me but those can wait"
"Just tell me one thing Joshua," I said sitting up fully in the bed.
"What's that?" He asked smiling at me.
"Why did we all receive a letter saying you were killed? Along with a few others?" I asked. Joshua stayed silent for a while. His head faced the floor. Finally his head raised up and looked at me, his eyes were glossy. 'Was he going to cry? I should be the one crying'
"Carter, there's something you need to know..."
My ears opened waiting to hear what Joshua had to tell me.
