When I woke Kenny was back on the bike.
"Where's Secrets?" She muttered still weak from the morphine.
"Prison" I mumbled black on the sides of my eyes obscuring my vision. We got home then Kennedy let all hell break loose.
"YOU LET THEM TAKE HIM! IT'S ALL YOUR FAULT!" She screamed at me while Annabeth tried to contain her. I tried to hide my anger and to think about it logically but I couldn't. I wouldn't ever let my family die or be taken on purpose. Never.
"NO I DIDN'T!" I screamed back at her. Staying my distance. She may be smaller than me but she has had more training. She's stronger than me. "I WAS PASSED OUT IN A POOL OF BLOOD. WOULD I DO THAT TO YOU? WOULD I!"
I started heading back to my bike to get Secrets back from Kalmo but Kenny shouted back at me. More words that felt like daggers going into my skin that I couldn't heal.
"WHY DON'T YOU TELL THAT TO HIM! HUH?" She shouted back at me her voice hoarse. "EVER THINK ABOUT HE FEELS?! THEY'RE PROBABLY GOING TO KILL HIM! IT SEEMED PRETTY CONVENIENT FOR YOU, WITH ME BEING WHISKED OFF IN A AMBULANCE THAT YOU CALLED! I COULD HAVE DONE SOMETHING!"
I couldn't hold it in any more. Every feeling of hate towards kennedy, Secrets, Annabeth, everyone just flowed out of me. Showering her in insults.
"I NEVER WANTED THAT TO HAPPEN!" I announced too loudly "DID I LOOK LIKE I DID? I JUST SAVED YOU AND SECRETS FROM DEATH YET THIS IS THE WAY YOU TREAT ME! I DON'T CARE ANYMORE! I'LL GO GET HIM WITHOUT YOUR HELP. LOOK AT YOU. YOU ARE TOO WEAK TO EVEN STAND UP ON YOUR OWN TWO FEET" I spat.
"Tops. Calm down a bit yeah?" Alex came up to me.
"Sorry." I answered. "But this always happens and I never contain my feelings. One reason I'm surprised you're still by me and I haven't been kicked out of this crazy family yet."
"It's ok" He said as I got onto my bike "Be careful though"
"Always" I said smiling. He leaned in quickly followed by me but we stopped abruptly when we heard Annabeth clear her throat. I started the bike and went off to the crash site. The car was still there and the mech suit. I jumped into the mech suit and punched in some coordinates for it to go to. Also known as under the treehouse. I looked around for some sign of where he was. Any sign. I saw a red stain on the ground.
"Hm" I questioned myself. I put my finger down to the grass and a trickle of the liquid spilled onto my nail. I lifted it up to my nose to try to identify it. Blood. And there was more. A blood trail. I jumped on my bike and followed it. It was the only lead I had.
I was right. The blood was Secrets'. And it lead me straight to Kalmo. No-one would have known it was a prison. It looked like a housing estate. I parked a few kilometres away and slipped behind an officer. I took her feet out from beneath her and snapped her neck. Training with Queenie was giving me new strengths. Meaning I didn't need a knife anymore to take someone out. I pulled her away and tore off her overalls and cap. Leaving her in a pair of shorts and a T-shirt.
"You should learn not to obstruct my entrance" I said to her as she groaned in pain. She would be dead in a couple of minutes. I could have taken my gun out there and then and shot her. Spared her the pain. But no. She was keeping my brother captive. She wasn't getting out that easy. I slipped my phone into the top of the cap and walked back over to the entrance point.
"Officer Daisy" An Officer said to me. He must have been a lower rank than this officer daisy as he was wearing an orange uniform without a cap. Mine was green with a cap and scarf hiding my mouth and nose. Thank god. I scanned my hat and walked through. Screams came from all angles. This place would be the death of me if they found out I was here. I slipped into a building labeled 'First Offenders' Secrets would be in here. I scanned my hat again and walked through the gate. My shoes tapping in the silence. I heard a howl from a few doors down and hoped it would be him. I shuffled down. Tripping over occasionally from nerves that were building and building. I went through the process of my cap being scanned yet again before the clunk of the door sounded meaning it was open. I pushed it open to see Secrets curled up in the corner of the dark cell. There was mould everywhere and worst if all he was sitting in his own blood. I could taste bile in my throat.
"Get up!" I commanded him.
"S-Sorry" He trembled. I couldn't contain it anymore. I let out a spring of laughter as I pulled down the scarf.
"It's me stupid!" I said. I grabbed his arms and pulled him out of the cell. I said sorry as I treated him as if he were a target down in the training room.
"Daisy. Where are you taking him?" The head officer said. I had to come up with an idea. And quick.
"To the chair early" I said "He's been a naughty boy. Haven't you!" I spat at Secrets. As i did this his eyes were wide and his pupils small. Insanity was running through his veins. I pulled him through out to the front of the facility. I threw off the cap grabbed my phone and ran. Secrets half running half being dragged behind me. I threw the cap back over to the real officer Daisy before jumping on my bike. Secrets strapped into the sidecar.
"Help officers! She's trying to break me out" He screamed as I started the bike. I sped off being chased by many other officers on bikes, in cars and on foot. I pulled down a side road and questioned Secrets.
"Why the hell did you do that!" I said. My palm colliding with his face.
"Because if I am to die this way. So be it" He trembled.
"Fine have it that way" I said tears pricking my eyes. I had gone to all this trouble. Risked my life to break him out and he goes and messes it up. I threw him onto the side of the road and sped off. Not home. I couldn't face Kenny without Secrets. I went over to the town. Where I could blend in easily and not be noticed by anyone. I parked, payed for an hour and went into the first bathroom I saw. I took of the green overalls and threw them out the window. I wasn't using those ever again. I felt my phone vibrate in my shorts pocket. I pulled it out to see a text from Alex.
'Im outside the ladies now come out and stop hiding and running from your problems'
Sadly he was right. I slipped outside and there he was. Leaning agaist the wall.
"Well. You took my advice!" He said to me standing up
"Seems so!" I answered kissing him on the cheek. "Now are you gonna call that brother of yours who works at kalmo or what?"
"Or what?" he jokingly said
"Call him" I said
"Ok, Ok!" Alex said raising his hands above his head. I couldn't help but laugh. we walked down to the car park Alex nattering away on his phone. I paid for an overnight stay and walked back next to Alex. I slipped my soft hands into his rough ones and they became interlocked. We walked over to the train station before jumping on the first train to Charing Cross. We jumped off the train and ran to Kalmo.
"Oh Alex! Lewis's brother yes! We were told you would be coming with your..." The Officer at the gate said looking at me.
"Girlfriend" Alex answered him. Holding me close.
"Ah. Yes! Of course" He said. To eagerly. I could feel Alex tense up. "Come in then" He said.
"Thanks" Alex said. Curious about the man.
"Topic Shadownight and Alex Dawn in sector one!" The loudspeaker droned. The sirens wailed and I was pulled away from one of the only people I trust.
"Alex!" I screamed
"It's ok Tops I'm right behind you" He said calming me down a bit.
We were dragged to the 'First Offenders' Building. I didn't fight them. Even though I had knives in my pocket I knew trying to fight back would be a useless challenge. I was thrown in a dank cell quickly followed by Alex. I buried my head in his chest before he said.
"Tops.. You may want to see this"
I looked around to see Secrets and Kennedy.
