1. Kidnapped

Phil's POV:

The cool night air bit my skin as I walked down the nearly empty streets. I shoved my hands into my jacket pockets to keep them warm. I approached the alleyway I always used as a shortcut to the home I shared with my best friend, Dan.

As I walked through the alley, two figures dressed in black stepped out in front of me. Their faces were covered in dirt to hide their features.The taller of the two pulled out a gun and pointed it at me. "Come with us." He said in a deep, husky voice. I swallowed. "W..who are you?" I asked, putting up my hands. He laughed. I heard the gun click and I ran. I heard their shouts and I kept running. 

A racking pain shot up my back. I collapsed to the grounds. I screamed in pain and touched my forehead to the ground. One of the men yanked me to my feet and clamped a hand over my mouth. The other grabbed my arms and tied them behind me. I twisted around, trying to get out of their grip. They dragged me to the other end of the alley and through me into the back of a van. I struggled to sit up, but the pain in my back was too much.

I curled up in a ball, squeezing my eyes shut. Why was this happening to me? What did they want? Would I ever see Dan or my family again? I didn't know. The ropes used to tie my hands cut into my flesh. We drove for what felt like hours. My kidnappers stopped the car at an abandoned warehouse. They opened up the truck and pulled me out. They brought me into a vast, empty room. Huddled in a corner was....."Dan!" I cried.

He looked pretty beat up. He had a large bruise on his right cheek and a cut covered with dried blood on his forehead. The rings around his eyes showed that he hadn't had enough sleep. He lifted his head up and looked at me. A tear ran down his face. "Phil? Is that you?" He whispered. The men cut my bonds and released me. I ran to Dan's side. He looked even worse up close. Tears welled up in my eyes. "What did they do to you?" I murmured. He stared off into the distance, completely oblivious of my presence. I glared at my kidnappers. "What did you do to him?!?" I snarled, getting to my feet and ignoring the sharp ache in my legs.

The taller one sighed. "He was....difficult." He said. They exited the room and locked it. Lights slowly flickered on, dimly lighting the room. I sat down by Dan and held him in my arms, rocking back and forth. "I'm here. I won't leave you. I'm right here." I murmured. Dan smiled and closed his eyes. Before I knew it, he was asleep in my arms. Despite the circumstances, I had to laugh. Typical Dan. I rested my head on his shoulder and closed my eyes. Sleep overcame me.
