1. Arrival

     I woke up gasping for air. It was pitch black and I didn't know where I was. I couldn't remember anything about me. My family, my home, my name. Nothing moved.

     "Hello?" I called out, my voice frantic, on the verge of tears. Silence. Dead silence.  Then, a loud thud sounded, like a gear starting to turn. Silence again. I slowed my  breathing to listen closer. Nothing happened. I stood up only to shoot back down again. The thing started moving. I didn't know which direction I was going so I took a look around. Boxes were stacked on top of each other and sacks littered the bottom. They all had 'Property of W.I.C.K.E.D' stamped on them. I felt around the walls, searching for a clue of what I was trapped in. Metal. Holes. A cage! The box continued to move faster every second. My stomach lurched as the box screeched to a stop. Sirens blared and red lights flashed on and off. Finally, daylight seeped through a crack above me. Two hands grabbed the edges of the crack and pulled it open all the way. I scooched back until I hit one of the boxes behind me. A sharp pain shot through my spine as I fell on my back. As I lay there on the cold floor, unable to move, a silhouette hovered over my body.
