5. Chapter 5

I opened my eyes and coughed. I was in a dimly lit room, with small windows nearly touching the ceiling. They weren't nearly big enough even for a rabbit to slip through, and seemed so far away.

I was sat in a wooden chair, nearly broken. Splinters stuck into my back.

I tried to look behind me, but something held me back.

I attempted to move my legs to get up, but my ankles felt like they were glued to the wood. I stretched to peer over the chair, but my hands clung onto the chair stubbornly.

I sat, confused and scared. That's when it hit me. I twirled my hands around and felt it. Rope. Rope, it was against my skin, pushing me to the chair.

I made a strange whining noise, and struggled to break free.

"No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no,"

I muffled a scream.

"Stop."

I most certainly screamed then.

"Stop. Stop struggling... There's no point. I've already tried,"

"Who...W-who are you... LET ME GO."

"I'm not responsible for why your here." Came the reply. It was a male voice.

"I don't even know why I'm here." He continued. "All I know is, you have to get out. I'm weak."

"What?"

There was a silence. The silence was replaced by a small beeping noise.

"Hear that? It's gonna explode. Get out."

"Not before I know who you are!"

"GET YOURSELF OUT!"

I began to panic again. Bomb. I was stuck to a bomb. The voice... It was coming from behind me. He was stuck to it too.

The beeping continued to get louder and louder.

I moved my wrists back and forth. The rope was thick. It would take too long to saw it off with the chair.

I could hardly move, but I managed to kick the chair a bit. I made a bigger kick, and a bigger one, until the leg came off. I fell.

"What the hell did you do?! NOW I-I'm falling! S**t!"

I pushed the wood with my head over to my tied wrists. Then I grasped it with my fingers, and stuck it between my flesh and the rope. I pulled.

I had to use all the strength I had, but it worked. The rope snapped.

I grabbed the wood with my other hand, and did the same with my other wrist. I had two free hands, two bleeding, bruised hands.

I pulled off the other chair legs, until I was separate. Then I sat down, and untied the rope around my ankles, until I was completely free.

"I-I'm out." I coughed to the boy.

The beeping was getting louder by the minute.

I moved quickly to him and untied the rope fastening his legs to the chair. Then I moved and saw the bomb.

It was a huge device, that had been sticking our two chairs together. It was now glued to his chair only.

"Does it have a timer?" The boy asked calmly.

"Yes," I said, tears streaming down my face. "Thirty seconds,"

He panicked, and fell forward. His hands were tied to the device. I wouldn't be able to unite it in time.

"Just... Get out..." came his muffled voice.

I still hadn't even seen his face. I didn't know what to do.
