24. chapter 24
I was walking to my cell thinking that there had to be a way out that is discrete but yet the people around will know what happened to us. I kept in mind that the Capital can have cameras in the most hidden of places. I glanced and the white walls made mine and the other Peacekeeper’s uniforms blend in perfectly while black doors stood out like beacons of death that are about to swallow me whole.
“Here is where you are staying for a while. Good luck with facing your mistakes ladies.” The peacekeeper chimed as he released my handcuffs before pushing me into the call. I stumbled at the sudden force but I quickly regained my balance and went straight for the door just in time for it to close in my face, leaving me to look at his eyes. The eyes of a peacekeeper are ones that an Avox never forgets, especially when it is the set that placed them inside their cell before transformation. Other than that set it is the sergeant that gets the most death notes from an Avox’s past if they survive that.
I slid myself down to the ground in a huff thinking that I should have known that they would place me in a cell. I glanced behind me in wonder of whom my roommate would be like as all I could see was darkness which is opposite than what is just outside of this door. I can smell the stench of rain that had seeped in for ages waft in the room and the light from the outside of the window only gave me little light as it was still night.
“Zava?” I hear my name being asked nearby and I wondered who it was although I had an idea. I watched around me while I heard footsteps of someone very small and light on their feet. I can see the bright red uniform come forth and I could tell whom it was because of the chime of the next sentence. “What in the world are you doing here?”
I raced to my mistress and wrapped my arms around her. She returned the hug but I can tell that she is quite concerned for the both of us. “I oldn’t veve you.” I said. We broke apart and I can tell that Mistress was crying tears of joy and sorrow.
“I thank you for that Zava, but, I know that I was treading thin ice when I started housing Avoxes. You should have done nothing.” Mistress explained. Her body said that she didn’t want to be left alone anymore. I took her hand and nodded no.
“I an eak!” I chimed and she shook her head as if she was in denial. She retreated to the window and looked out. The lighting that flashed at that moment lit the place brightly to show that the walls were painted black like the door. The pounding of the rain made me think of the drums of earlier that were pounding in sync. I saw the lost hope in Mistress’s face while the thunder finished out the sequence of the storm.
“I wish that I kept my composure that day Zava You would not have to chase me at all and now that you are here, I regret that.” Mistress huffed and I came closer to her in hopes that she knows that I don’t regret a thing and would set everything straight.
