The Pure One

Safi is a 15 year old, brown eyed girl. Now to you and me that seems perfectly normal, but the year is 2156. Having Brown Eyes is a bad thing; especially when their are Monstra about. Having to stay in the Corridors and face her Induction scares Safi to death. She wants to run away and escape the horrors that face her, but are there more horrors out there than there are in the Corridors?


3. The Plan

Chapter 3 –The Plan

I slept last night - it was amazing! The first time in a long time… I think I slept for at least 6 hours! I feel so regenerated and calm instead of paranoid and jittery. I hope this feeling lasts because I need all the energy I can get for tomorrow.

                In a few days it’s my Induction. Tomorrow is the day I start to live life the way I want too. Tomorrow is the day I leave this hell hole. For good.

                Steve is currently outside the door waiting for me to wake when my alarm goes off so he can take me for an Induction day dress fitting, but as you can probably tell I really don’t want to go. A child's 16th birthday, depending what family you are born into, is also their Induction day. The day that they are expected to Vocans in front of all their friends and to ‘welcome’ them into their world. Out of everything I have ever heard this is one of the most ridiculous things to come out of my Uncle’s discovery. It’s pointless, scary and something I really don’t want to do. That’s why after much deliberation I have decided I would rather take my chances in the outside world along with all the Monstra, than to stay here in this extremely plain place and Vocans against my will.

                Everyone is really excited for me – but it’s not like they ever had to do it! They just have to sit there and watch. Mum is the worst! She is so ecstatic for me but she has never had to Vocans in her life! She just says she has to not look like the family let down… but that’ll be me if I refuse to do it. So I’ll go along with their plans with a smile on my face but tonight after everyone has gone to sleep I’ll pack my stuff in my old gym bag and run away. It’s not the most brilliant plan but it gets me out of here without suspicion. Also if I leave my key card here and leave my door open they’ll think a Monstra got me and no questions will be asked and minimal search parties will be sent out. They’ll just carry on with their lives and wont realise that I am still out their breathing – and if I hate it out there in the real world and want to comeback I have made a spare key just in case and I can always then divulge to them my plan the whole time. Then they’ll just believe I’m a wimp that couldn’t survive outside on her own, I’ll have to go through with the Induction and forever live with the fact that I could never follow my heart.

                I’m starting to push it now with the time, Steve heard my alarm go off 10 minutes ago and he thinks that is more than ample time to get ready in. I better go and hide this and all the spare paper I can find in my bag to take with me because writing and drawing is the only real release I have.
