"Alright,so how many of you are new here?,"Aidan asked the audience once we were seated. About twenty of us raised our hands.
"And you know why you're here,right?,"Elizabeth asked. Some of the audience nodded confidently,some shook their heads,and some just stared into space,stuck I a trance of fear. "Then what is it?" Everyone stood clueless,so I did.
"Yes?,"both Aidan and Elizabeth asked. "It's about how we see unnatural things. About how we haven't—,"I glanced at one of the ones who couldn't stop shaking,"COMPLETELY lost our sanity and humanity."
"Nice explanation," a blonde piped up. I noticed the voice from the announcement (yes,his loud voice is still ringing pretty loudly in my head) and it was Daniel. Two words:too cute.
He nodded as a girl with dark blue hair stepped up. "You will all be divided into groups that help with battle training,building armory,hacking,and emotional training. Me,Natasha,and Allie will help with battling. Building armory will be for Daniel and Isaac. Elizabeth and Erick lead hacking while Nat and Rick lead healing. Lastly,Liz is inNow,Rick,please announce who will be in each group this week. Like I said,every week,you move on to the next stage,using the order I gave you. Good luck." After Rick announced everyone,we all got started with training. Axis was already in Battling for the fifth time while I was in hacking. Perfect. Hacking is my speciality.
As Elizabeth and Erick explained everything,I saw a girl next to me. She had short,green hair that was curly on the ends and she was really pretty. But there was so,etching off about her I didn't get...
"Miss Remirez,"a boy,Erick,caught my attention. "What is the easiest way to hack?"
"To either have a hacking app or to know the password,"I simply said. A few people snickered at my answer,but Elizabeth held up her hand.
"That was...,"Erick put on glasses and looked at a piece of paper (C'mon Erick! Gimme that answer sheet!). "Actually correct!"
"Oh you just got PWNED!,"a girl younger than me giggled. The boys who snickered at me glared at her,then me.
"Now shall we start the lesson?,"Elizabeth asked.
By the time we were done, we all went back to our dorms. Axis used the express elevator (so THATS what I hit my head on!) to go up the air vent,then we had to crawl our way back. For me,instead of falling on hard floor,I fell onto a soft mattress.
"You're lucky the bed saved you,Kathy,"Axis said.
I giggled. "This your bed?,"I sniffed it. "It smells like bananas and pocky!"
"Yeah,it's my bed,"she said,climbing to the top bunk where I was.
"You're lucky you get the top,"I huffed.
She laughed a bit,then stopped. "So how was your training?,"she asked.
"Oh it was AWESOME!,"I exclaimed. "Venice and Denise are SO cute and so good! How on earth did they end up here?" Then Axis's expression darkened. "Oh..,"I said. This was obviously a touchy subject.
After a bit of silence,I spoke again. "How was YOUR training?"
"It was cool,"she shrugged. "I'm labelled top of the class as always."
"Woooow!,"I smiled. "Axis,that's not just cool...that's just plain WICKED! You're so good at everything!"
"Not at the only things that matter,"she mumbled.
"Hey,"I put my hand on hers. "To me,you're like the ONLY person who could be even CLOSE to perfection. That's why I started hanging out with you before;I really looked up to you. Don't go thinking about the past. Alright?"
She smiled. "Alright"
And with that,we said our goodnights,I went to my bed,and then to my dreams.
Ok,that little inspiration thing is what I really think of...you know who you are. And about that Daniel scene...don't ship it too much. I have a real OTP coming up in a few chapters.
