Chapter 18

79 5 50

Cashmir's POV

I sat on the desk and began searching for anything that could free the prisoners from EMBER's cells and then heard rapid footsteps coming near me.


I forgot that my appearance wore off!

Alright focus Cashmir! I thought to myself as I closed my eyes.

You have to remember what that guard looks like!

I try picturing the man in my head but to no avail.

Well now what?

I quickly searched for something that could be used as a weapon and found a knife and grabbed it as fast as I could.

I looked at the doorway and saw a foot entering so I jumped right on top of a desk and shoved the knife behind me and smiled.

Well now EMBER! I'm ready for you!

"Cashmir..?" A voice calls out to me and I look at who it was.

"Isen..?" I say looking at the boy with orange hair and I let hold of the knife behind my back and gave him a skeptic look.

"What are you doing here?" I ask him and see the others coming in the room so I relaxed a bit but still had my hand close to the knife.

"Soo what are you doing in here?" Remi asks me and I tell them everything but very quickly and short, and I asked them why they were here.

"Well, we were here to find the exit!" Remi says to me and I find myself smirking at the thought of ever leaving EMBER's psycho HQ but instantly nodded.

"Well do you know where it is?" Isen cuts in and I shaked my head. "Are you sure?" Seraphina asks me and I nod making my face grim.

"Well then, we're going to have to focus on getting out." The Shadow King says and I shiver at the coldness in his words.

"Well.. I have to focus on freeing the prisoners." I say almost stuttering on the last word and The Shadow King looks at me before nodding.

I smiled.

At least The Shadow King is sympathetic with my actions that he let me help the prisoners..

Maybe you aren't that bad 'Shadow King'.

Suddenly, Isen goes to the door and cups his hands around his mouth and looked ready to shout. "Hey come on slowpoke!" Isen yells and I hear rapid footsteps coming near and smirked.

The Shadow King / John's POV

I look around for a exit as I hear Isen shout something like 'Hey come on slowhoke!' and I knew that didn't make any sense but that was what I heard and then heard fast footsteps coming near the door.

Now who could that be? I thought to myself as I looked at the door to find Blyke standing in the doorway out of breath.

He stared at Cashmir angrily and looked like he wanted to blast someone head right off.

I stared at him for a moment.

This was me once.

And I almost wanted to smile.


Blyke's POV

I tried to catch my breath as I saw Cashmir and the rest looking at me weirdly but then I spoke. "Did you guys find the exit?" I say leaning on a wall to catch my breath more easily.

"We're trying." Seraphina says and I grit my teeth in anger but pushed it all away.

Now wasn't the time to get mad.

It was time to get out.

"Wait a minute.. I think I saw a door when we were going towards here!" Remi says and determination fills me.

I can't wait to get out of EMBER's HQ.

To smell the fresh air.

To be in peace.

To finally-

"Blyke come on." Isen says interrupting me and walks out of the door but I look back at Cashmir while the others kept walking out.

"Aren't you coming?" I asked the dark red haired boy and he shook his head. "As much as I love and want to, those other people in here should come too." The boy replies and Blyke nods his head.

"Ok then. Good bye." I say to the boy and a smirk starts to form on his face.

"Well now, who said I wouldn't be able to get out?" He said to me and a smile starts tugging at my face. "I'll be seeing you soon Blyke.. And the others." He says and turns back to searching for something.

I walk out of the door and followed the rest.

I wondered if this was really going to be the last of Cashmir.

But then again, you never know.

Noah's POV
(If you hadn't remembered who Noah is, Noah is the boy in the last chapter seen exploding jail cells to free the prisoners and gave Cashmir the idea to find a 'button' to release all the prisoners.)

I kept exploding more and more jail cells but every time I use my ability, my stamina depletes and I begin to start feeling weaker.

It took 2-3 of my explosive shots to destroy a jail cell and I only gotten about 49 people out.

I really hope Cashmir finds anything that could help the prisoners escape.

After all, nobody should be stuck in a hellhole like this.

Suddenly, I felt a tap on my shoulder and turned around to be met with the green haired girl that I broke out earlier.

"Hi there."

Hey guys, I know everyone is still in EMBER's HQ so next chapter they'll be finding a escape and Cashmir part will finish. (Just a heads-up) Thanks for reading!
