17. Seventeen

I press my forehead against the tiny baby's. My tiny baby. Her eyes are as bright as Harrison's. I can see the same stormy ocean in them. "Iris." I say, "My little baby Iris."  I kiss Iris' forehead and bring her into me.

Sierra runs into my apartment. "Erudite are attacking. Run!" I get up and pick up Iris. Sierra and I run out of the room. "Where are Bee-tee and Clese?" I ask. At that moment Clese runs up to us. "Bee-tee is just coming. She has guns!" He say pulling me to him. Bee-tee rushes up to us, her arms filled with guns. She dumps some of the guns in Clese's arms and stands on her tiptoes and kisses him. Yes, Bee-tee and Clese. 

Clese thrusts a gun into my hand and gives one to Sierra. He puts two in his pocket and keeps one in his hand. Sierra takes two guns from Bee-tee and thrusts one in my back pocket and another in hers. Bee-tee stuffs her pockets with guns and keeps one in her hand. "Are we ready?" Bee-tee asks. I nod and we run. 

Shots fly over our heads as we run across the compound. I keep Iris close to my body. "Get down!" We duck behind a barrel. Bullets fly above our heads. I pull Iris closer into me. It then all seems to happen so slowly...

Bang! I turn round and see a bullet flying towards me. First instinct. Duck. I tuck my head behind my arm. I feel an impact on my arm and feel the bullet pierce my skin. I pull my arm away from me and drop Iris. My arm is throbbing, bleeding and hurting so badly. I crawl towards Iris, but just before I get to her a pair of hands wrap around her and lift her off the ground. When I look up I expect to see Clese, but instead I see an Erudite soldier. I reach out to try and grab them to get Iris back but they pull away way from me. Time speeds up again. 

"Iris, no!"

I sit alone in my apartment. I hear voices outside.

"Oh come on Clese!"

"Bee-tee, what's your problem. She's strong enough. I know that!"

"She may have been. She's just lost her child along with Harrison. Don't you think it's hard for her!"

"Yes. But she can cope!"

"She may have been able to cope when she had a boyfriend!"

I lay down and stuff my face in my pillow.

Like a tidal wave that never breaks
I will run and run and never stay
'Cause there's no way back that I can face
And no one's come to take your place
