10. Rising up
The world came to me like a bullet.Ironic since I got hit by one. Unsteadily I got to my feet and automatically fell on my butt. Grunting I looked around and saw that way down the hallway shadows appeared. I tried again then failed. I felt like giving up. I closed my eyes and Smith's voice came to me again '' You can do this Nellie you are smart''. I saw his face give his smile and felt better.
I got to my feet and found a bent piece of metal that was no longer than 3 feet. Still it worked and I was (somewhat walking).The metal made a little noise as I came down the hallway. It seemed to never end I took a deep breath to try and calm the pain. It sadly did not work and the pain continued to throb. I found who the shadows belonged to. They belonged to two guards that stood in front of the entrance.
One was a burly, short and bald. He talked with a little accent that made me think he was from France. The other had a look of boredom that would never end. He had auburn hair and blue-gray eyes. I looked at him more closely and saw that his profile matched mine. Another thing that I noted was that he was young. In his late teens to be in fact. I shook this off and decided to attack the short one.
Steadily I moved closer to the man and one he was an arms length away I swung the metal bar with all my strength. The man fell back interrupted in mid sentence." Jack why are you so quiet all of the sudden and can you do this everyday?''. The teen's back was turned when he said that. Turning around he saw me and the ' sleeping ' Jack. surprised he backed away and ran.
All of the sudden I heard Felix's voice cry out in pain. And I ran towards the voice.
