The Avox Speaks HG entry

My name is Zava. I had been an Avox, a servant for about a year, year and a half, two, maybe three. I am not sure. All i know is that I had my own tongue cut out and i had been past from person to person ever since since i am still a partial trouble maker. However I had settled down since the dark days in the beginning but i am still being sold from family to family till i meet this one person that gives me a notebook, a way to speak and changes my life forever.



14. chapter 14

I awoke somewhere I wasn’t sure exactly where. My body and head still hurt but not as bad as before. Unexpectedly, I felt a slight vibration on the ground that started small and then accelerated faster and faster to where my vision barely caught a small glimmer of light that became something of a railroad track. The vibration was not tiny by the time I fully came to where I knew where I was.

I can hear the loud hum of the tram before it all came together and my heart skipped a beat just before I dodged the bullet tram that would had killed me if I didn’t realize what was happening a second later.  I glared at the tram as I knew that this had to of been set up by Sorrow because there would had been no way that he would had let me die quickly by firing squad. I think it is because it is too easy for him to exterminate me like that for The Main Peacekeeper.

I started to walk the lonely path to see where in the world he decided to place me in this cold environment. I looked over myself to see that they had destroyed a small bit of my new outfit. I could hear the drips of the tunnels since it is a above and below ground system that I know of since I had only been on the tram a few times with my past owners.

I wished that I could see Mistress since it was getting lonely at the moment. I can only think of Sorrow ripping through everything in the plantation to see that she was letting her Avoxes be like people and once that they find this out all of those Avoxes would be resold to a special group and Mistress.. I rather not think about it at the moment since all I can see in my mind’s eye was a tombstone with her name on the stone.

And to think that this was my entire fault. If I had kept my rivalry and haltered in check with Sorrow than Mistress and I would had not been in this mess. I can see someone else being kind and thoughtful with Sorrow because that is them and not me since I have a temper that I just let go  in front of the Main Peacekeeper which was exactly what he wants to exile me  till I come back to become exsiccated unless I can come up with something but then again it doesn’t seem like I would be able to go back to the capital till I figure out what mess I gotten myself into again.

Finally I see a light at the end of the tunnel. The nice bright sunlight felt something of a welcome of warmth and hope. The path felt clear to me as I got myself to the spot and wondered if anything there could be of use or that I had been in the Capital all this time or one of the outlining districts that way I could just hop on the next tram and go back to the Capital.

Sadly as soon as the sun settled into my eyes to where I could see where I was at my heart sank. I was not at all happy of where I was at since I  was in the woods instead of a district at all!

I was in the wooded area between the districts and I wanted to scream but I couldn’t. I wondered that I might become lucky to find someone soon since I am desperate. Which I am thinking that is unlikely since I am in the aria where nobody dares to tread.

The worst part of being left in between the districts to die. I don’t have much knowledge in the woods so the part of scavenging for items might be scarce. I wished that I could find someone anywhere that can help me with finding the Capital or at least a district’s tram. I scurried through the woods like a lost dog while I could only see Mistress being strapped onto the table to have a person cut out her tongue and genetically alter her hair.

I looked around for a sign and I saw nothing other than what looked like the sun was going down to settle for the day.  This would possibly be a very good thing for two reasons. One is that I can easily fade into the darkness for moving around while being concealed and two I can see lights, hopefully. Lights normally means that there is at least a somewhat poor district that is around and that is all I need.

The walk was lonely to me as I waited for night to settle at least a little bit as I kept moving forward in these woods. I could see my friends being arrested and sent to become perfect to where they are resold while most would possibly shot to where they are unrecognizable. I wished that I didn’t even react the way I did since my head was on the block to be dead and not my newfound friends or even Mistress.

I turned to the west and saw red in the sky as I thought that if I was to be able to see lights of a district now would be a good time to come on and show me the way to something that I can use to get back to my home.

The word home had never crossed my mind but I guess the plantation had become my home in this short time that I had been there. I consider my Mistress as a great head of household while Catre if my friend. I would rather see myself die than them and that is what I tend to do if need be. My past of being a thief and rebel had finally caught up to me with this Mistress and her Avoxes being caught in the middle.

I smiled as I thought about the dull days of working with the rest of the Avoxes. The nice written conversations that we had and the meals we had shared would always be with me if I survive this or die happy with just the fact that I had met them and gotten to know all of them so well.

I start to see something in the brush as I pulled back the last of the thicket thinking that I might had found a district of some sorts since I can see lights that were shining through the trees. Every small glimmer started to become brighter and brighter and I was hoping that it was the Capital’s lights and that I had gotten home. If I am home than I have a chance to correct everything that I had done because the Capital sent me to die and yet I am still here so I am not sure if this was even planed or not by them. Either way, I can see that I am the last hope for Mistress and the many Avoxes that is in her care.
