Chapter 1: Discovery
Hi, my name is Christina Cuidado, and I and my boyfriend are going to tell you a story about how are lives got crazy. It all started by a hard knocking on the door.
I got out of my twin bed slowly, and reluctantly. I found my favorite blue robe and put it over my torso. I walked to the door, being careful not to make any noise. My foster parents don’t like letting me do what I want. Once I made it to the door I slowly opened the door, because it squeaks. I saw the familiar face of my boyfriend, Tyler Lindo; he had dark hair, with blue eyes, and dark skin. His eyes always had a caring look to him. It was always hard to tell what he was feeling, but if you know him like I do you know what to look for, and know I could tell there was fear, and anger. Although, it was really dark so I couldn’t make out if he had cuts on his face or bruises. Before I could ask anything, he looked behind himself quickly and pushed me inside. Now that he was in better light I could see that his clothes were all torn up, and he has bruises on face. It was shocking to see him like that. He never got in any fights or anything so why is he like that now?
”Ty what’s wrong? What happened to you?” I said in alarm.
He grabbed my arms, really hard I was afraid he was going to bruise. I looked straight in his eyes, and saw that he was really serious. I decided to trust him and not question anything he does.
“What do you need me to do?” I ask seriously.
“Go upstairs. Change into traveling clothes. Pack as much as you need in a small bag you can just slap around your arm. Ill pack food. GO!” He whispered, but very urgently.
Without question I ran upstairs to obey him. I opened the door and looked around for a bag to fill a lot of stuff in. There hanging off the side of my bed. I grabbed it and started putting stuff in it like flashlights, sweatshirts, some spare rope I have laying around, hats, a switchblade for self-defense, a map to make sure we know where we are going. I finished packing and quietly walked downstairs. I caught Tyler when he was pulling food from the fridge, and stuffing it into a bag. I didn’t really care much. Mostly because, my foster parents have way too much food. They don’t even need it there already a bunch of fat couch potatoes. There way to obeice. He took about half of everything in the fridge. He closed the fridge and looked at me.
“Are you ready?” He asked.
I nodded quickly, and he picked up his bag, then Ty and I ran out the door. We ran through alley ways, and streets. After about 5 alleyways, and 3 streets we stopped in a vacant lot. He put his hands on his knees and started gasping for breath. I put my hand on his shoulder to get his attention. He looked over and I could see in his eyes that he knew what was coming.
“What happened that is so bed that we had to run?” I asked.
He sighed and started talking “okay it all happened 2 hours ago. I was walking home from something.” He wouldn’t tell me what he was doing. “Then I noticed a black car driving slowly behind me. I started to walk faster and faster, and then I finally started in a run. Once I did that the car stopped and 2 men in black sunglasses and black suits and shoes came out and started to run after me. They caught up to me. They grabbed me and waited for the car to come by. As soon as it did they opened the door, and threw me in. Once I hit the seat I quickly turned around and lunged for the door. But all that did was me nearly breaking my nose on the door. I suddenly realized a man and a woman sitting right in front of me. They smiled and then a phone rang. They answered it and I heard them say. ‘Yeah we have the boy now all we need is the girl.’ ‘Yeah of course we are not going to lose him this time’ ‘yes okay bye’ Then they looked at me and smiled the woman asked ‘Do you know why you’re here Tyler Lindo?’ I shook my head no and they explained that I was there because of when I was little, my parents enrolled me in something and that it would give me powers. I started to get scared. They were obviously psycho. So I slowly inched toward the door. Once I was close enough I unlocked it and opened the door it was moving but I had to get out of there so I jumped. I skidded a little bit and that’s how my clothes got torn and my face all bruised up. I didn’t know what to do but since they said girl I thought of you and because you already want to run away I thought you wouldn’t care or at least come along without question. But then they shouted ‘No matter where you hide Tyler Lindo we will always find you. We will always find you and your precious girlfriend’ so I decided to run to your house and find you.” He explained.
