As I sat and cried, I felt like I was being watched. I turned my head to see Abby across the room. She held her finger to her lips, signaling for me to stay quiet. She quietly made her way over to be and untied my hands. She undies my feet and helped me up.
"You ok?" She whispered.
"Yeah in fine. Thank you" I whispered back as I pulled her into a hug. She untied Josh and Marcus.
"Time to go" I whispered.
"What about Steven?" Josh inquired as he grabbed my arm.
I just turned and looked at Abby. "I know where he is. Stay here I'll bring him to you." She made her way to the door. In about 10 min and came In with Steven. We hugged him and set out to escape this evil place.
Silently, Abby led us out. We got out of the building and immediately started running. We couldn't afford to lose any time. When we got to the gas station we used some money to buy food and water. We put the food in our bags and ate a little of it. When we got outside we started walking towards the city. We really needed to get those test tubes back. When we stopped Marcus leaned close to me. At first I thought he was leaning in for a kiss or something but he whispered in my ear, "where being followed"
I laughed and pretended he said something funny. I gave the others a hand signal. They all knew what was going on. The men slowly coming close to us, got to close for my comfort.
"Run" I whispered and we all got up and ran. We ran onto a bridge. The men yelled and I heard a few gunshots. I heard a few bloodcurdling screams and I looked around to see who was hit. Steven was shot and he was holding on for dear life at the edge of the bridge. He gasped for air and I rushed to his side. I grabbed his hand and tried to pull him up.
"Common Steven!" I cried. I had to save him. I couldn't let him die.
"No! You have to let me fall!!" He answered.
"What?" I asked wide eyed.
You can't save me and you. I looked at the men running towards us. He was right. We where not all going to make it out alive.
He wiggled his hand out of mine.
"No! No Steven no what are you doing???" I screached.
"Saving you" he said simply as he wrenched his hand out of mine. I screamed as he fell into the water. I let a silent tear run down my cheek as I rushed back to the others. I saw Abby was shot In The leg and Marcus had a new scar on his arm but other than that we where ok.
"Where Steven?" Josh asked with fear in his eyes.
"Gone" I replied simply.
We took off dragging Abby with us. She was shot but we where not going to let her die too.
