I just witnessed Derin being shot in the leg. I still cant get over the fact that he choked the soldier. The only soldier with a gun! I should be angry with him for risking his life, but I cant be angry at something that I would do myself. I put my head in my hands. Why did this have to happen? Why did they have to choose Derin. Derin. 1 boy out of millions and it had to be him. I feel something stir inside me. If they hadn't chose Derin I would still hate him. I shake and tears run down my face. This is my luck. I finally begin to love someone, but only because we were sent to die on another continent!
"Ughhhh," I groan.
I am a prisoner. Put in a white room, with only a toilet, a sink, and a hard, white, bed that I am sitting on. I feel like I am in an insane asylum. It is making me feel crazy or maybe I am. I'm not sure anymore. The only thing I am sure of is that I love Derin or else I would have ran today, I would have chose to live for myself without anyone there to keep me going. Then again may be that wasn't what I chose today. Maybe deep down I know I am not strong to keep myself going. This thought makes me want to cry even more. Suddenly there is a knock and Dian walks in. She shuts the door behind her and walks toward me. She stops in front of me.
"You don't have much time. They have to do one more test on you and whichever one of you 2 score a lower maturity level will die. I don't know why they do it that way, but they do. I have a plan," she whispers.
"You're going to help us?" I question her.
"I told you. I don't agree with them. I don't want you to die. Now do you want to hear the plan or not?"
"Well yeah," I wipe away my tears and force a smile.
"Okay. Well I know where Derin is. He's about 5 halls from here. Well I'm going to come and get you tonight, then we'll get Derin and I'm going to try and get you guys out of here by telling the guards that we have to transfer to another building for some testing. They wont let me see him, so we'll have to explain it to him later. Now I have to go or they'll be suspicious. See ya later Natalie," she finishes.
"Goodbye Dian. Thank you." She walks out of the room.
I cant believe it. I like Dian, but it seems too good to be true. Even though it seems just a little to nice, it's the only plan I've got. Hmmm. It seems I've been relying on other people a little to much lately.
