AND SO START THE ACTIONEY!!!
The walls of the elevator cave in. If we don't want to be crushed, we have to jump out. The first to jump out if Flint. He slings around the gun and looks in one direction.
"Taft get my back!" yells Flint. Without thought, Taft jumps out and leans his back against Flint's. I jump out too and circle them. No animal threatens us.
"Caprice, help!" yells Claude from behind me. I whip around and see him trying to tug Sedona out of the eleevator. She refuses to move and wants to get crushed.
"I won't come out! I won't!" She yells. the wall become closer and closer to her body.
"I can't get her out! Please, Sedona! Please!" yells Claude.
"Sedona," i yell to her when i signal to the boys that i am running over.
"I won't go out! I won't," says Sedona holding her hands over head. She sits on the ground and start to cry.
"Sedona! Don't do this to me! Remember August? He's waiting for you at the end of this hell-hole! Please Sedona!"
When I say August, she looks up to me. I hold out my hand. The walls are getting closer and closer to her. I start to sweat, and I'm thinking of jumping in there to get her, my heart beating the fastest I have ever heard it. I reach out my hand for her and inch closer and closer. The walls are doing the same and refusing to let me through.
"COME ON!" I squeal. She grabs my hand last second and I pull her through. I have to lean over to relax. I realize I can't loose anyone here without having a major meltdown.
"Sedona, why?" I wease.
"I thought it's be would be easier because I never, ever beat one of the simulations... I got stressed I can't... I couldn't... sorry, please... And I could see Max...," she whispered.
"You wouldn't remember him anyway. Come on Sedona were moving. We have to keep moving."
I get up and pull Sedona's arm up. I look over to Flint and Taft who still hold their guns.
"Okay, we need to stick together at all costs. Okay?" I say. Everyone nod. I hold Sedona's hand and jog up ahead leading her. I look back into her eyes as we walk and silently whisper without words, that I will do anything to protect her. She becomes less tense.
The rain forest is muggy, hot and itchy, per say. Thorns line trees and wierd birds I've never seen fly by. We don't know what we can or can not eat, so we take nothing or touch nothing in the forest. Who knows, the whole thing could be boobi-trapped.
I hold two knives in my one hand and two others in the next. Sedona holds onto my wrist.
"Well, I think we should get out of this forest- anything in here could be completely lethal," states Remy holding his weapon up high.
I nod. We continue north and follow small rivers, hoping to make it out of the iky place. The leaves of the plants are the size of tableclothes, and the flowers are the sizes of benches. The water in the small river taunts us, looking clear and completely harmful. I am about to test the water, but I see a bird swoop down to also get a drink (A young baby bird) and soon as it touches the water it liquifies, screaches and becomes a part of the water. I look away in horror, along with Sedona who was also watching. I inform everyone, never to touch the water.
"But, hey, if we really want out, we could always just canonball in there," says Taft smiling, "Better than getting eaten alive by monsters, if you ask me."
I roll my eyes and try not to get distracted. We have been walking for ten minutes now, acording to my watch. The sun feels odd, not having sun in a while. It is warm and reminds me of days in the Erection.
We hear a russle to our left that is made from a huge animal. Then we hear what sounds like sawing and thunder, as a huge tree collapses, falling straight to us. I run to the left while everyone else, including Sedona, runs to the right. I try to get around the tree, but its width is to tall to get over.
"Caprice? Caprice?" I hear Flint screaming.
"I'm okay! Is everyone over there okay?"
"Yeah! Can you come over or around?" Flint yells, his voice a little calmer. I look both directions of the tree, but only see the tree'slength going on forever. I can't get over it and I can't walk around it. If I go left, I'll fall into the water. If I go right, I will meet whatever did this, probably something big.
