Taken Over

Faye Grace Kallas hates the way things are now. Ever since World War 3 happened the Robos have taken over. Most people are stuck with them having to do what they say. Few people haven't been captured. One of the few is my brother, William David Kallas and I. My brother is 14 and I'm 17. I have always been careful not to get caught anywhere. I can't get caught. I have to keep my brother safe. But what happens when I got caught? I can tell you one thing. I sure as hell am fighting back.

4. Chapter 4 Our New LIfe

Chapter 4

During the night I woke up multiple times. I wasn't used to sleeping on a bed. I was used to sleeping on a cave floor. I haven't slept on an actual bed in 7 months. I couldn't stop worrying about Will. We were always together, we kept each other safe. I sighed and just decided that I was done with trying to sleep. The clock read 4:23 am. I heard a noise and looked over. Donovan was up. He looked over at me and said, "Go back to sleep. You still have an hour and 37 minutes."

I shook my head and said, "I can't go back to sleep and I don't really want to." I whispered the last part to myself. Donovan looked at me confused but decided to let it go.  I breathed in relief.

"Then, don't touch anything in here and be good. I have to go switch with the guards. If you need me then tell a guard and they will bring you to me. But don't bother me unless it's important."

I rolled my eyes a saluted him. "Yes, sir."

Chapter 4

During the night I woke up multiple times. I wasn't used to sleeping on a bed. I was used to sleeping on a cave floor. I haven't slept on an actual bed in 7 months. I couldn't stop worrying about Will. We were always together, we kept each other safe. I sighed and just decided that I was done with trying to sleep. The clock read 4:23 am. I heard a noise and looked over. Donovan was up. He looked over at me and said, "Go back to sleep. You still have an hour and 37 minutes."

I shook my head and said, "I can't go back to sleep and I don't really want to." I whispered the last part to myself. Donovan looked at me confused but decided to let it go.  I breathed in relief.

"Then, don't touch anything in here and be good. I have to go switch with the guards. If you need me then tell a guard and they will bring you to me. But don't bother me unless it's important."

I rolled my eyes a saluted him. "Yes, sir."

Donovan snorted and walked out. I sighed and looked around the room hoping to find something to do. I groaned and fell back onto the bed. There's nothing in here. It's just a plain room. Crunch! My eyes scrunched up in confusion. I looked around the bed and saw nothing. I laid back down again and heard the noise. I reached into my pocket and saw a picture. It was of Mom, Dad, Will, and I. My eyes watered. We all looked so happy. Our faces were glowing with happiness. I smiled and a tear fell down my cheek. I wiped my cheek and put the picture face down on the nightstand.

I sniffled and stood up. The cabinet on the other side of the room was open a little bit. I remember that being where the towels were. I opened the cabinet more and grabbed a light blue towel. The towel was really soft.

I went to the bathroom and closed the door behind me. I looked in the mirror and saw a tired broken girl. The girl in the mirror has tired brown eyes and ginger hair that is all over the place. I sighed and turned on the water. I lifted my shirt and winced. I hissed and looked down. There was a huge bruise on my side. 'When did I do that?' I thought. Oh well, I always get bruises randomly.

I got the rest of my clothes off without wincing too much. I stepped into the stand shower and sighed. It felt really good. I haven't had a shower in forever. My body relaxed under the hot water. I grabbed the shampoo and massaged it into my hair.  It smelled bland. I guess it's better than nothing. I watched the soap and water go down the drain. Once all of the shampoo was out of my hair I found the conditioner and put some in my hair.

The water splashed on me and I massaged my head. My hair hasn't felt this soft in so long. I looked around for some body wash and found some lavender kind. 'Oh my gosh they actually have something that smells good,' I thought. I love the smell of lavender. It relaxes me. I lathered it all over me and scrubbed my body. By the time I was done my body was pink from me scrubbing it so hard.

I got out and grabbed my towel. The towel was tough and uncomfortable. I sighed. My eyes widened in shock. I don't know where any clothes are. I have nothing to change into.

"Shit." I whispered loudly. I opened the door and made sure no one was in the room before I walked out with only a towel on. I went to a dresser by my bed and looked through it. My nose scrunched up in confusion. There were clothes in the dresser that were my exact size. I found some comfortable underwear and put it on, along with a bra. The shirts and pants looked like scrubs or something that prisoners would wear. "Well, I guess we are prisoners now but still," I whispered under my breath.

I put the dark grey scrubs on and looked at the clock. Breakfast is in 20 minutes. Might as well look around outside of this room. I opened the door but it was immediately slammed shut.

"People are not aloud to leave until 5 minutes before breakfast in the mornings." A monotonous male voice said.

I rolled my eyes and sighed. "Seriously dude, that's dumb. I want to look around this place.

"No, Donovan said you are not allowed to leave.

I glared at him through the door and yelled," Well, tell Donovan to come here now."

"He said he doesn't want to be disturbed unless you need to see him."

I slammed my hand on the door. "Well, tell him I need him, now."

The man sighed and I smirked when I heard the static from the radio. "Donovan, this is Kyle. The girl needs you. Over." I wait to here Donovan's voice and smirk when I do.

I hear him sigh. "Does she really need me? Over."

"Yes! Over!" I yelled through the door.

He sighed again. "Okay, I'll be down there in a minute. Over."

"Okay, Kyle out."

I waited there impatiently for Donovan to get here. I was going to kick his ass. There is no way in hell I would stay in here until breakfast every morning.

The door opened and I fell forward. I slammed into someone's metal chest. The breath flew out of me. I looked up at Donovan to see that his eyebrows were raised. I scowled and pushed off of him.

"Why did you need me?" He said in a commanding voice.

I hit him in the chest and yelped. "Mother f*cker, that hurt. You idiot why are you making me stay in here until breakfast."

Donovan sighed. "Is this really why you pulled me from my duty?"

I snorted and started to laugh. I leaned against him trying to breathe. "Duty." I started laughing again and he pushed me off of him. I fell on my butt and stopped laughing. I scowled at him and said," Yeah, I want to check this place out and I'm bored."

He sighed. "Will you not talk to me if I show you around today?"

I nodded my head and grabbed his hand to drag him out of the room. He wouldn't budge and I fell forward. He caught me and I looked up at him. I faces were inches apart.

I scrunched my face up and he scowled. He helped me stand up an let go of me. "No talking starting now." He pointed at me and glared.

"Aye, aye captain." I saluted him but stopped when he glared at me yet again. I put my hands up in a surrender motion and he walked out of the room.

I followed him and stuck my tongue out at Kyle. We passed about 30 rooms and turned at random points. If we got lost and he tried to kill me then I'm screwed. "Are you trying to take me somewhere private to kill me?" I asked.

He sighed. "I wish," he mumbled under his breathe.

I gasped and hit his arm. "Jerk." He stopped at a door and I ran into him. I stepped back, away from him and he opened the door.

I followed him, hoping I would be getting breakfast. The room was full of girls and boys from the ages of 5 to the early 20's. Everybody was wearing the same dark grey scrubs. I looked around and saw Will. I breathed out in relief and walked towards him. He was standing next to a girl. I smirked, totally time to embarrass him.

"Will!" I yelled and ran to him. I rammed into him and put my arms around him tightly. He hugged me back.

"So, how is it living with the Robo?" He smirked and I held myself back from hitting him.

I snorted. "Awful. I woke up this morning and was told I couldn't leave the room until breakfast."

Will snickered and I punched his arm. "Ow." He rubs his arm and glares at me.

I smiled sweetly and heard someone clearing their throat. I looked behind Will and saw the girl that he was standing with. "Hi, I'm Will's sister. Faye." I held my hand out for her to shake.

She shook my hand and said," I'm Blythe. Your brother's roommate. So, what's this I hear about you rooming with a Robo."

"Oh, yeah. It's true. His name is Donovan."

She gasped. "Oh, man. I'm sorry. He's one of the worst Robo's here."

"Oh, yay." I said sarcastically.

A bell rang and I looked around wondering where it came from. "That means it's time for breakfast."

I nodded and we all walked towards a huge line of people waiting for food. There was a ton of people in front of us. It would take forever just to get food. We stepped forward once and I looked around wondering where Donovan was and if he still planned on showing me around. I noticed him by the door that we came in from. He was guarding it. Will pushed me forward and I followed him.

Soon enough after about 10 minutes of standing in line we got to the food. It looked absolutely awful. It was slimy oatmeal and gross looking eggs. Blythe must have seen my face because smiled at me and said," You get used to it." I hesitated but I grabbed a tray and a bowl. The person stirring the oatmeal slapped some on my plate and I moved to the eggs trying not to throw up from the smell.

I gagged but forced myself to stop. The eggs smelled even worse if that was possible. The person put some eggs on my plate and motioned with her hand for me to get out of line. I followed Will and Blythe to a table and sat down already feeling uncomfortable. I lifted my spoon and the slimy oatmeal rolled off of it.

Blythe was shoveling the food in her mouth. I stared at her wondering how in the world she could eat that. I looked back down at my plate and sighed. "How long have you been here?"

Blythe looked at me. "I think it has been a couple of months."

I looked at her shocked. She was already used to the food in 2 months. 'Well looks like I'll get used to the food quick,' I  thought as I took a bite of the oatmeal.
