Nice flying rookie, not even Josh could fly like that.
Dylans words kept popping into my head as we ran on, and they kept a small smile on my face. "Hurry up Kiali, we can't wait forever." I snapped out of what seemed like a daze and realized that my team had stopped beside an old home, which looked to unsafe for my liking. "We meet up with another team here, then rest. Unsaddle the horses then meet us inside." Hopping off my black beauty I gave him the Salute and turned, my hands already pulling at the saddle straps on his horse. A sick feeling was going through me but I couldn't understand why, we hadn't seen a titan since the first one and there was no one else around....and yet. With a sudden jerk I looked around and my stomach dropped down until it felt like it had left my body. I knew this place... forgetting about my job I took a step forward, turning my head. There was the Bakers hut on the left...Mr. Stens house was on the other side, the grass over grown and vines curling around the shattered door. Rubble was covering the floor and something red had stained the ground in front, his blood. I gave a shaking gasp and threw my hands to my mouth, covering my sobs. We were in my old neighborhood...everyone I once knew and loved was either covering rocks or covering the ground. "Hey rookie, get in here!" Conners vice rang out and broke my moment of pure fear, almost waking me up. Turning my back I tied up the last horse and nodded, looking at him. His eyes landed on mine he seemed to be thinking of something difficult, but soon gave up. Opening the door he held it for me and I walked past him into the house, looking around. Another team had joined up with ours and they were all sitting around a small table in the center of the room, two guys and two girls. "Ah, finally you're here." I didn't know this voice, it was lighter than Josh but calmer than Dylan. Someone stood up and walked over to me, holding out a hand. "My name is Doctor Matthews, I am here to help you." It was a women with a bob cut of black hair, glasses perched on a sharp nose, and light brown eyes. Her smile didn't quite reach her eyes as she shook my hand, but she seemed happy about something.
Later that night while having dinner that consisted of a few pieces of bread and water Doctor Matthews told me about her plan to help me. "We brought you here for a reason. You and your team were never meant to go farther than here, this was your mission." I stared around at Josh, Dylan, and Conner...they all nodded. "I believe that bringing you back to the place where you were traumatized may help you speak once more." She clapped her hands happily, smiling brightly at me. "Right, we start now!" And throwing back her chair she grabbed my hand pulling me outside, the others watching. My body started shaking as I saw the houses again and I covered my face, looking away. "No no no, that won't do." She grabbed my arms and held them back, making me look. "What are you feeling?" The sound of a door opening and people walking out, surrounding us. I couldn't take much more, my mind was replaying that day over and over, my eyes were filled with tears that started to run down my cheeks. "Maybe this isn't a good idea...""She doesn't look so good..." Someone placed a hand on my shoulder and I lost it. Screams split the air and I was rocking back and forth, shaking all over. My mouth opened and..."NOO! NOOOOOO!" I don't remember what happened after that, someone had jabbed a needle into my arm and I blacked out.
