I stood there in awe. Kenny here too! The cell walls seemed to be closing in on me. In my shorts and shirt. Still my hands interlocked with Alex's.
"Topic?" Secrets said in shock. He turned to Alex and I heard a growl rise in his chest.
"YOU GOT HER STUCK HERE DIDN'T YOU KIDDO!" He screamed. I hid behind Alex. Frightened of this new Secrets I had never come across before. "YOU GOT HER STUCK IN HERE. YOU'RE GOING TO PAY. YOU WILL PAY"
"It wasn't him Secrets" I whispered. Just loud enough for him to hear, just.
"OH YEAH?" He shouted at me, "THEN WHO WAS IT TOPIC? HUH!"
"Me" I said. I wasn't letting him treat me like this.
"I DID" I screamed back at him. All emotions from the day leaking out.
"IT WAS MY IDEA! NOT ALEX'S. I WANTED TO GET YOU OUT! BUT YET YOU BLAME IT ON ALEX. WHAT DID HE EVER DO TO YOU MAY I ASK? NOTHING. YOU JUST DON'T LIKE ANOTHER MAN IN THE HOUSE. A PERSON LOOKING AFTER ME THAT ISN'T YOU! BUT GET OVER IT. JUST GET OVER IT. HE'S HERE FOR ME. SO ARE YOU." I shouted, my throat going hoarse.
"Tops. Calm ok" Alex said to me. His hands on my waist. Secrets cleared his throat and his hands instantly moved to his side. His hands in fists. I walked over to Kenny, She was curled up in a ball Secrets jacket around her stomach. I knew what had happened. A knife slash across her stomach was obvious from the way the blood stained the grey material. I offered to heal her but she declined. Even though she could have really needed it. I walked over to the corner, shivering with every step. My hands travelled up and down my arms as my lips went blue.
"Here" Alex said, barely audible. His jumper landed on my knees.
"You sure?" I said. Secrets had just given up on us. He was over calming Kennedy down.
"Well my lips aren't turning blue" He answered then turning to Secrets, his eyebrow raised at him and Kenny. Lying side by side, their hands interlocked. Yet even though they had the same age range as us.
"I can't put up with this anymore!" Alex screamed, kicking at a crack in the wall.
"Alex, Calm down. We'll get out" I said walking over to him. With his jumper over my shoulder.
"I know we will" He smiled. He kept kicking at the wall, harder and harder until it crumbled down to the floor. The remains on the cement keeping it together.
"Quick, Tops go!" ALex said as I squeezed through the hole, shortly followed by him.
"Secrets? Can you fit?" I questioned him
"No, Sadly not" He said as he struggled, stuck through the wall at his shoulders.
"And i'm not leaving without him" Kenny said. Her arms crossed.
"Ok. We'll go" I said "We will be back for you ok?"
I kissed kenny's and secrets' cheeks and left as the sirens went off.
"God speed you too love birds, god speed" I heard secrets say as the sirens went off. Rumbling through the compound. I turned around and waved as I jumped onto Alex's back and he ran, Through the forest, Through the town and down into the basement of the Scouts.
"I made it for us when you told me about your crazy family" He explained, his hand rubbing up and down my back.
"Oh my days. Thank you!" I screamed and planted my lips on his. Our first kiss, and It couldn't have been more perfect. In the basement of a Scout hut
