Good guess. But who says a computer geek can't like sports? That's stereotyping, if you ask me. But Aeryn hadn't asked. Instead, she wanted to know if Oni knew binary.

 

Oni squinted at her. "Why the small talk? We're both trapped in here, unless you're a plant by the kidnappers, and I don't see any computers around. And what are you writing?"

~​Qiana~

 

Qiana snickered, this girl was definitely a hot-head.

"Prove yourself?", Qiana scoffed, "that is hadly even a possiblity. You? Against me? You wouldn't last a minute".

Qiana was getting irritatedbut decided not to show it. She breathed in a huge breath. 

           She climbed into the back seat as the car was still on automatic driver. She sat down next to Amaya and equally glared at her,"Listen here you, this is my job. I don't like it, I just do it. No more questions. I can't answer them".

She sat back in the seat and looked up at the roof of the car.

"Why the small talk?"

Aeryn glanced around nervously. She had said it a bit too convincingly.

"We're both trapped in here, unless you're a plant by the kidnappers, and I don't see any computers around. And what are you writing?"

"Do you know binary?" Aeryn asked again, more forcefully, effectively ignoring Oni's question.

She hugged her paper to her chest and stated Oni down with serious eyes.

"It depends," Oni sighed. Evidently nobody was going to answer any questions today. "You don't type binary code into a computer these days, it's just how the computer recognizes letters and symbols. I don't think I could convert binary to symbols off the top of my head."

"Oh." Aeryn frowned. "I guess thats okay then." 

She strut over toto Oni and extended her hand. "Nice to meet you Oni."

Amaya Naramaki

Amaya bristled as the girl talked down to her. What sort of job included kidnapping people and hurting an innocent Red Fox pup? Sure she wasn't a full shinobi yet, but she was a genin! That was something anyways. "Can you at least tell me where we're going and what I can expect? If not where we're going, at least tell me what to expect when we get wherever this stupid smart car is taking us?" She tried, rolling her eyes at the older girl. She did look older. Maybe in her early twenties. She couldn't even see out the windows because of the tinted glass. And she tried. Probably a one way reflective mirror type. The car could drive itself so whoever hired this girl..."Can you at least tell me your name or do I have to call you "stupid kidnapper" the whole time?" She ventured, trying to get the girl to make a mistake and let something slip like her mother taught her.

Oni looked at Aeryn's outstretched hand. Once again, she changed her opinion on the girl. She may be smart, but she's definitely a little weird. But then, everyone's been weird today. "Nice to meet you too, Aeryn," she said, shaking her hand. "Want a piece of gum?"

Aeryn Nyght -18-

Oni's eyebrows arched a bit. Aeryn smiled a bit sheepishly.

"Want a piece of gum?"

After having successfully slipped the note in Oni's pocket Aeryn let a small smile appear on her face.

"Logically." She said.

The note she had slipped in read:

'01010100 01101000 01100101 01111001 00100000 01100001 01110010 01100101 00100000 01110111 01100001 01110100 01100011 01101000 01101001 01101110 01100111.'

It also provided a cryptic key to decipher the message.

Aeryn was in a programming class with Oni, she was taught the very basics of binary in that class. She only really took it because it was either that or *shudders* PE.

Oni reached into her sweatshirt pocket for the gum, her fingers brushing against a piece of paper. What? She took it out carefully, holding it against the gum package. She popped out a piece of peppermint gum into Aeryn's hand, then studied the paper as if it were the nutrition information on the back of the package. Did Aeryn slip that into my pocket just now? Sure enough, it was written in binary code.

 

They... are... wadchifg... watching? Yeah, watching.

 

If these people hid a whole second bed in the wall, who knew what else was back there. "I figured as much," she grumbled at the gum. Oni turned to Aeryn, putting on her best offended face and sliding the gum back into her pocket. "I knew it, there's a ton of preservatives in here. I'm not buying this brand again."

Stacy

~

I shut my history textbook and thumped it down on the coffee table, almost knocking over the vase in the center of it.

My computer beeped, sitting up, I grabbed it and flipped it open. Mom was trying to Skype me.

I almost facepalmed, that was right! We had planned this last week!

Turning on my camera I smiled, "Hey mom."

"Hey Baby, everything okay there? You look tired."

I shrugged, "Laura dragged me over to see King of Popularity today.."

"Don't tell me, she was trying to find you a date?"

"Yeah."

Mom smiled, she looked tired too, but there was....a smile, the one I hadn;t seen since before Dad died.

"Honey, I have to tell you something,"

I frowned, her tone was...cheerful, light, but her words...I dunno, maybe to many old movies.

Pushing her dark bobcut behind her ears Mom grinned at me. Was she wearing lip-stick?

"Do you remember Stan, your Dad's old friend?"

I gulped, yeah, I remembered. "Sure, why?"

"Well, shortly after you moved out, we started dating and...Honey, your siblings are gonna have a Dad again!"

"Wh...what?"

Mom smiled, "I know it may seem sudden for you Baby, but we've been talking about it for awhile now. All your sibs think its a great idea, and Stan is a great guy, I'msure he'll be a great Dad."

Her words were like bullets in my head, replace Dad? Why? Why would mom....?

"But what about you? How do you feel about him?"

Her smile told all. I forced a smile, laughing in a way that sounded hollow to me, but hopefully would sound real through a computer. "That's great mom."

"You really think so?"

I nodded dumbly. 'Yeah, it just suprised me at first."

Mom nodded, "I'm sure it did. That and you being so tired."

"Speaking of," I preformed a fake, yet stunningly realistic yawn, "I think I need to go to bed early. It's been a long day."

Mom nodded, "You do that Stacy. Goodnight!" She blew me a kiss and I smiled back at her and turned off the camera. Shutting my computer I faceplanted on the couch. This couldn't be happening.

Aeryn Nyght -18-

Aeryn popped the piece of minty deliciousness in her mouth. Oni was scrutinizing the nutrition facts on the back of the pack.

"I figured as much," she grumbled at the gum.

Aeryn blew a bubble and grinned light-heartedly.

Oni turned to Aeryn looking rather exaggerately indignant.

A laugh caught in Aeryn’s throat as she mustered up a confused expression.

."I knew it, there's a ton of preservatives in here. I'm not buying this brand again."

Even years of experience could not hold the laugh back. Aeryn barked a laugh, passed it off as agreeing.

“I know right. It's such a shame that they hide everything from us! We best be careful.”

Although her tone was agreeable, her expression conveyed a bit of menace and warning. “Now, where is my stake?”

~Eruus~

 

          Euruus walked home, since his car was in the shop. He. . .had to walk. Which wasn't the problem. His knee was k.illing him and he soon started limping. He shoved his hands into his pockets and forced himself to walk noramlly.

                He was so ready to go to bed, but he promised the School board that he would make a list of things to do before the bazaar. His first mistake.

        Euruus hissed at himself as his knee began throbbing. He blocked the pain by thinking of what the list that he would write as soon as he got home. Little Amelia was with him. She just held his arm and satred straight ahead. She noticed him limping but said nothing. He was taking Amelia to his apaartment to help her with her studies. He promised her mother that he would have her home by 7 o'clock.

~Qiana~

 

Qiana sighed and then chuckled, "My name is Qiana". 

She laughed to herself, this girl was more than a hot-head, but a calculating hot-head.

Qiana laughed again, this time from lack of sleep.

 

-Time Skip-

 

Qiana felt the car come to a halt. Qiana opeend the side door and took out a piece of cloth and gently tied it around Amaya's eyes, "Sorry, it's easy this way".

     Qiana guided Amaya outside and into the facility. She stopped infront of the door that was next to where Oni and Aeryn were. She opened the door and guided Amaya into the room, simultaniously unbilndfolding her.

"Stay here, Kikee should be by soon".

         Qiana closed the door and left the room stopping for a short moment to peer inside of the room that the other two were in.

Rriiinnnggg!

Aki's phone vibrated in his back pocket. "Huh. Wonder who's calling." He said to aloud to himself as he took out his phone and pressed the answer button, not even glancing at the caller ID on the screen. "Hello?" He said, raising the phone to his ear. At the sound of the accusatory sigh on the other end of the line, he chuckled. "Where are you?" The voice half-demanded, the person's tone a mixture of fake and legit irritation. Aki smiled. "Sorry, Kot', but we're running low on food, in case you haven't noticed. I'm on my way to the store right now." Kotaro was silent for a moment. Then: "Ok. Just...don't forget to get more chips. I opened the last bag this afternoon." Aki nodded, then, realizing that Kotaro couldn't see him through the phone, said, "Alrighty then. Cya when I get back." Kotaro's voice on the other end sounded slightly more cheerful (but still like he had just woken up) as he replied, "Ok. Cya." Aki waited until Kotaro hung up and then stuffed his phone back into his pocket. Turning the corner of the block, he glanced up and saw an insane amount of sidewalk traffic ahead of him. "Okaayy....guess I'll take the alley, then." He said. Slipping between two of the houses next to him, he made his way to the much-less-crowded alley behind them.

Amaya huffed at the girl - Qiana. She allowed the blindfold and wondered if there was anyone else in the facility. She plopped herself down on the only bench in the room. She lay down on it, looking up at the ceiling. She knew Trixie would try to leave her safety area to try to find her. She was a smart fox. 

 

Lien and Sinnion's POV 

Lien glanced at his brother, the little teacup dragons had been created by the faclity to be inteligent creatures with the mind of a human, but the apperance of the legendary fire breathing beasts. He was a bright ruby red where his brother was a soft icy blue tabby pattern and he had strawberry like spots along his chest. His nasal crest curved up into two horns over his eyes in a loose spiral. "Hey Sinnion, think they brought in anyone new yet?" Lien asked his blue and white brother. "Who knows? Knowing that brat Qiana, she didn't exactly bring them here willingly and I doubt they'd let the newbies come to see us until after the experiments if at all." Sinnion replied, grooming his nasal crest with his paws the way a bunny rabbit would groom it's nose. They both had simple ridged nasal crests that ended in horns, feathers and two sets of wings - one attached to their back legs for gliding and their primaries for flying while they used their tails for steering like a bird. Lien and Sinnion both had simple feathered tails, nothing fancy - sort of a long mouse like tail with a tuft of feathers on the end. Lien blinked blue eyes that were almond shaped like Sinnion's purple ones. "I just hope they let us out of these cages or feed us soon, I'm starving!" Sinnion complained. "Dude, you're ALWAYS hungry." Lien replied, smacking his brother upside the head with his tail, earning a satisfying yelp.

~Qiana~

 

              Qiana knew where Aki was. She had seen him in the alley. She was on the roof of the house to the right of him.

                     She knew that he was already enhanced some-what. But she decided not to take her chances. She had to be fast and efficient. She jumped up and began her slide down the roof shingles. Rope and blindfold in hand, she was ready for him.

    She landed on the ground next to him, but wasted no time. She used her speed and ran around him, simultaneously wrapping the rope around him. She grabbed the blindfold and also tied it his eyes, but not super tight, but not loose either. She hated doing this to people.

                   She got him onto the ground and put her knee on his back, pinning him down. She looked on her key fob and clicked the button. In no time, the SUV was in the Alley way. She grabbed the rope that was wrapped around him and used that to lift him up off the ground. She grabbed the door handle and yanked it open.

She was tired. The car was still on Auto Driver. Good thing too. She might as well be a d,ead person.

She helped Aki in and then climbed in next to him, fastening the locked seat belt.

​The car rumbled to life and they were off again.

~Eurus Sionn~

 

            Eurus was walking home with Amelia holding his arm. She had asked him and her mother if Eurus could help her with her studies. She was having trouble with the American History and Eurus pitied her. American history was really ha.rd. 

     He would have driven his car to school, but it was in the shop until later on. He had his hands shoved in his pockets while he walked. Amelia was squeezing his arm and looking straight ahead. 

         Eurus knew that he shouldn't have skipped his doctor appointment. Now for all he knew, the doc was at his apartment rigth now, waiting for him.

No offense to the doctor or anything, but he's a creep.

              Eurus took one hand out of his pocket and began coughing violently. He cursed himself for not listening to his mother and going to the doctor sooner. But, what's done is done.

He looked down at worried Amelia. Whose big blue eyes were filled with worry.

"I'm fine", he said putting his hands up defensively, "don't worry about me".

Amelia nodded and looked back straight again.

~

The door clicked, I sat up and wiped some tears away. I hadn't cried a lot, but it was just a tough week, and Mom's remarraige, the word sounded...I donno, dreadful, and also ominous, and with everything else going on I simply couldn't hold the tears back.

I heard the door shut and crept slowly into the hall. My legs hurt again.

Uncle Fred was just hanging his coat up, his boots were laying on their sides in the corner where he had kicked them off, and his messy red curls stuck out from under his cap. I smiled slightly and staggered forward to hug him. "Your home."

Uncle Fred had always been a sort of a father fgure to me ever snce Dad died, and now, with IT happening, he seemed even more like one.

"Woah there Sctacy-Girl, everything okay?"

I nodded and smiled, pulling back out of the hug. "Yeah, just glad to see you, I almost thought you wouldn't come home."

He nodded, he was tired, it was clear.

"I made supper, theres some in the fridge for you, I'll just warm it up."

Uncle Fred nodded and followed me to the kitchen.

We talked while he ate, but afterwards he went in the living room, plopped down and turned on the TV. I climbed up to my room. 

Something was off, he was so tired, and he was distracted. I wondered for a little if work was going okay for him. I didn't know what he did exactly, but I knew it had something to do with power tools and some computers. Some sort of high tech something or other that he hated talking about. wWhen I asked he said that he hated to talk about what he spent all day focusing on. I didn't mind much, because we'd spend the evenings chatting, working on my homework, or down in the garage creating something together. We did a lot of inventing, and he tought me most of what I know about computers.

I frown, maybe the project he's working on is finally oming to its high point, and he's just working late to finish. At supper he talked about beig done with it soon, so maybe...maybe the late nights will stop. I flop down in bed and take my hair sticks out, letting my hair tumble down to my waist. I've thought about cutting t, but considering it's the most attractive of my features, and the only truely noticable one, I can't bering myself to do it. 

Slipping into sweats, I call a goodnight to Uncle Fred and sit down on my bed, I flip open my computer and click open YouTube.

From the moment he was first attacked to the moment he was forced into the vehicle, Aki was in a state between panic, alarm, and trying to reason with himself. A kidnapping?! Who's kidnapping me? Why? What did I do? Did I do something wrong again? His mind was screaming these and other questions as he sat bound and blindfolded in what felt like the back seat of a moving vehicle. He could hear the breath of another person next to him. Also, on a completely different note, his arms were beginning to hurt, being roped (or wired or whatever they were using to tie him up) to his sides. He tried to reach his phone, but his arms wouldn't budge. The sense of panic in his mind was growing stronger, threatening to take him over completely. He fought it down with extreme difficulty, trying to think clearly. It's not Kira, he thought to himself, trying to reassure himself. It's not your father. You're okay. Don't panic. You're okay...
After a few minutes of similar thoughts running nonstop through his head, Aki finally managed to force himself to speak in a somewhat calm tone, although there was a slight squeak in his voice. "What...what's going on?" He half-demanded, still trying to keep himself from totally panicking.

~Qiana~

 

Qiana heard all of the emotions in his voice. She untied the bindfold and cut his ropes. 

She wasn't worried about him hurting her. She could k.ill him just by looking at him.

She looked at him, "I'm sorry for being so violent".

              Qiana hissed in pain as she touched her wrist which when she slid down the shingles, her palm of her hand was cut. Qiana looked around the car.

Being kidnapped was one thing, but when he was cut free... just the fact that anything sharp had been anywhere near him almost sent Aki into a panic attack. Somehow he managed to prevent it, but still. As soon as he could see, he glanced at his captor, trying to steady his breathing to sound normal so she wouldn't know how panicked he was on the inside. He didn't feel ready to defend himself if she should try to hurt him. But if he had to...

"I'm sorry for being so violent."

The words caught him completely off guard. He had expected her to say something to threaten him or for her to just tell him to shut up. But she didn't. In fact, she apologized. Despite his panic, he felt a tiny bit safer in her presence. But only a tiny bit. He still watched her doggedly, waiting for her to lash out. When nothing happened, he relaxed a bit. "Where are we going?" He asked rather haltingly, desperately hoping she wouldn't say something about a lab or asylum.

Qiana looked around and saw his face.

She looked down at her hands, "I can't tell you that".

                She wanted to tell everyone where they were going and how to escape, but the other prisoners would be k.illed and tortured if she did. Innocent people who had lives. Now, they were slaves.

Ok, that was a stupid question. What kind of kidnapper is going to tell you that? Aki mentally berated himself, trying to think of what he could ask that she might have an actual answer to. Something he could use. After a moment, he nodded. "Right. Stupid question. Sorry, I never know what to do when this happens. Last time I...never mind." He took a slightly shaky breath. Can't ask if I can call Kotaro. She doesn't need to know I have a little brother. They'll just use him as leverage. Again. He glanced at his kidnapper. She was somewhat smaller than him, but that didn't make the intimidation any less. She was still kidnapping him, after all. He looked around the car, then back at her. "How long...until we get there? Can you tell me that?" He asked, relieved when his voice didn't squeak with anxiety.

                     Qiana shook her head, "Uh. . .about. . .I don't know. I can't measure time". She said, sudddenly realizing how stupid that was. That she couldn't measure time.

​I'm too sick to even notice anyway.

Qiana looked at Aki's shakey look.

What does Master want with a bunch of high schoolers?

Qiana feared the worst. She wanted to make conversation, "How old is your brother?"

She looked down at her hands that were folded together in her lap.

Aki was just getting a hold on his anxious thoughts when she asked the question. All at once the panic was back. She knows about him?! Great, now she's gonna kidnap him too! I've got to do something! Trying not to look or act alarmed in any way, he semi-casually looked around the car again, looking for something he might be able to use as a weapon or something, while answering, "Uh, maybe 13? I forget. We don't really keep track, y'know?" Seeing nothing useful in fighting off his captor, Aki glanced at her again. "Speaking of which, can I...call him, and let him know I won't be home for a while? He's expecting me."

           Qiana sighed, "Just don't try anything funny when you call him. I purposely "forgot" to kidnap him so I don't have to kidnap two of you. Plus, I don't like kidnapping innocent people, My limit is 6".

WHY AM I SUCH A SOFTY??!! Gaw!! I disgust myself.

As soon as she finished speaking Aki grabbed his phone. Swiping the screen lock, he hit speed-dial and held the phone to his ear. After a moment he heard the sound of Kotaro's voice on the other end. "What, you're calling me again?" His little brother demanded, a touch of playfulness in his tone. "Did you get lost walking to the store or something?" Aki tried to smile, but found he was too anxious to do so earnestly. Instead he shook his head. "No, nothing like that. It looks like I'm not going to be home for a while after all. Maybe a few days, or a few weeks." Kotaro didn't even let him finish before interrupting with a suddenly serious "What? Why? Did something happen? Are you okay? You weren't in a car accident and taken to the hospital, were you? Because you know I can't visit you if you're in the hospital. Where..." Aki interrupted him. "No, I wasn't in a car accident. It's...more serious than that." He glanced at his kidnapper, then said carefully, "Look, I'll call you as soon as I can. Okay? I know I can rely on you to take care of yourself until I get back. Understand?" There was silence for a moment, then Kotaro's voice again. "Okay. But... where are you?" Aki sighed and tried looking out the darkened windows, a futile attempt. "I don't know. Also, there's one more thing I need you to do for me that I can't have you disobey me on. No matter what happens, don't come looking for me. Period. No arguing. You got that?" He listened for a moment until he thought he heard Kotaro sigh, then added, "Look, I get it. Okay? I know you're worried, but I don't want you in any danger. Just...stay home and take care." He glanced at his kidnapper again, then looked away. "Sorry, but I gotta go now. But I'll call you as soon as I have the chance. Okay?" On the other end of the phone, Kotaro nodded. "I hear ya. Just...what do you mean by 'danger'?" Aki looked around the car again and sighed. "It would appear I've been kidnapped." Then he hung up.

~Qiana~

 

Qiana listened to the entire conversation and hissed at Aki's choice of ending words. It didn't matter.

"He doesn't want your younger brother", Qiana said, "if he finds out that you said that...he will send me to..."

She trailed off, lost in memories that hurt her to think about. All the assassinations he had had her go on because someone said something that he didn't like.

She looked to Aki, tears filling up. She hated this job. She hated it. She wanted to run away.

Sleep deprevation really does cause your emotions to run wild.

As he hung up, Aki took a shaky breath and stuck the phone back into his pocket, barely listening to his kidnapper as she talked. Something she said caught his attention, however. Something that both angered and terrified him. He looked at her steadily for the first time, trying to contain his now fully awakened older brother defensiveness as he said, both to convince himself and to tell her, "Nothing's going to happen to my younger brother. He's safe where he is and he's going to stay that way. No one's going to kidnap him, or k.ill him, or whatever you were thinking. No matter what this guy you work for says. You got that?" He finished, trying to sound serious and threatening but failing.

~Qiana~

 

Qiana sighed, "If that makes you feel better". 

Qiana shrugged, this was her job, she had to get over her emotions.

She was nothing more than a tool for her Master to use to do his bidding.

She loooked around at the car, then whipped her head back to Aki.

~~TIME SKIP~~

 

Qiana gently blindfolded Aki and guided him into the cell where Amaya was.

"You'll stay here for now, until I am able to find more accomodating rooms", Qiana said, blankly.

Qiana guided Aki into the room. Before she was able to fully take the blindfold off, she heard a faint BOOM coming from the far halls. 

"Uhhh", she said to herself. She took off the blindfol and folded it up. Master came into the room. "Did I accidentely overhear a conversation in the car made by a certain person?", The Overlord asked himself, but looking at Aki and Qiana. "Yes, Yes I did", he answered himself.

"Strudle Cake", Qiana hissed.

Qiana bolted to her feet and gave Aki a push onto the bed that she had pulled out for him. 

"Stay there", she hissed from the side of her mouth. 

"Qiana", Master said evily.

"Yes sir?"

"Follow me", he said, motioning for her to follow. She walked around him and went out of the room, locking the door behind Master.

"I want you to get Tear for me", he said, when they were outside of the room.

Qiana looked around nervously, "Tear? I thought that he was last resort"...

"Yes"

"But-", she paused, deciding not to question him.

Ever since his defensive outburst about Kotaro, all Aki could think about was how much he hoped he was right. Right that nothing would happen to Kotaro, that is. Without someone there with him, Aki knew his little brother would become rather timid and scared. He'd be useless in a fight if he had to defend himself, which would mean whoever had kidnapped Aki could easily kidnap Kotaro as well and do who knows what to him. The thought so absorbed Aki's mind and consciousness that he didn't even realize the vehicle had stopped until his kidnapper was getting him out and blindfolding him. He felt the panic beginning to return and tried to suppress it as best he could, trying to stay clear-headed in case the girl said anything that might give him a hint as to where he was, what was going on, and what they might do about the previous phone call and his little brother. It was nearly futile. Just when he thought he had a grip on his fear, something about wherever they were got to him, reminding him of the last time he had been kidnapped. That time he had been blindfolded, too, and it had ended with him unconscious and in tremendous pain. He seriously hoped that wouldn't be the outcome of this incident as well. 

When they reached their evident destination and the girl began undoing his blindfold, two thoughts came to Aki's mind at once. The first was that he should attack her and try to escape, but then he remembered how easily she had taken him down and how long they had had to travel to get here, wherever here was. He wouldn't even know where to go if he somehow did succeed in beating her in a fight. Then his second thought was that he could sense someone else in the room with him. Good. At least he wouldn't be completely alone. Having someone to talk to might help ease the panic and alarm he was feeling. 

Unexpectedly, just as the girl finished taking off his blindfold, Aki heard a man's voice behind him. Instinctively he spun around, expecting (for some reason) to see his father standing in the doorway. Fortunately, he didn't. The voice belonged to a different man altogether, but the attitude was right. "Did I accidentally overhear a converation in the car made by a certain person?" The man said aloud. Immediately Aki felt sure he was talking about the phone call he had made. So much for Kotaro's safety. He took a step forward toward the man, trying to muster up the courage to try and threaten him so that he wouldn't go after Kotaro, but then was pushed backward by the girl into the room and onto a bed she had pulled out, probably for him. "Stay here." She hissed at him, then turned and left the room, closing the door behind her. Aki stared at the door for a few moments, then shook his head and stood up, looking around the room slowly. There was indeed another person here, he discovered, and it was a girl, one with blonde-ish hair that reminded him of his Science instructor, only this girl's hair also had blue tips. He looked at her for a moment, trying to calm down his blur of feelings and emotions enough that his voice wouldn't squeak when he spoke. Finally, he sighed. Sitting back down on the bed, he looked around once more, then back at the girl. Something was familiar about her, he realized. After thinking as hard as he could about where he might have seen her, he gave up. "Haven't I seen you somewhere before?" He asked slowly.

​~Qiana~

 

Qiana walked the halls, in search of her beloved friend, Tear. Just so everyone knows, that was sarcastic. Qiana sighed, Tear was difficult to deal with, but at the same time easy to deal with. 

She rounded the corner and jumped back when she saw him crouched on the floor, touching it with his right hand.

"Tear", she said catiously, "Master wants you to help me kidnap some people".

    Tear stood up, he was 5' 11" so he wasn't scary in means of height, but strength and abilities, she would not want to be on his bad side.

"Sounds like work", he said boredly. 

Qiana hissed, it was gonna be ha.rder than she thought.

Amaya Naramaki

Amaya 

Amaya sat up from where she was laying on her cot when Qiana came back with another prisoner. She recognized him - Akira Sato she thought his name was. Being from the Naramaki clan she had to know who everyone was in her school. It was part of her training. She glared daggers at Qiana as she left, wondering what the heck was going on. When he spoke to her she rolled her eyes. "I go to school with your little brother Kotaro Sato. He's a freshmen a year behind me if I recall correctly. You're Akira Sato, age 21, just graduated a couple years ago from Stanley High School and are currently in between schools if I'm not mistaken." She recited from memory what she knew about the Sato kids. "And in case you're wondering, no, it's not a freaky memory thing. I'm from the Naramaki clan and it's my job to know pretty much everything about everybody. Well, it's going to be anyways. I was working with my fox cub trixie when I got grabbed. We work work with animals and Trixie is my current raise and release project. I just hope the little one's ok. She's not ready to survive on her own." Amaya sighed, leaning back against the wall beside her cot/bed. 

 

Lien and Sinnion

Lien perked up when he heard people out in the hall. Tear and Qiana if he wasn't mistaken. "OI! WHAT'S A DRAGON GOTTA DO TO GET SOME FOOD AROUND HERE!" Lien called, his stomach grumbling. He just hoped he caught her attention. Sinnion smacked him upside the head with his blue tail. "Idiot! Ya know she's one of the top people in this place! I doubt she'll even bother with the likes of us lab rats!" the snowball tabby snapped, his blue fur and feathers duller than they should be. They should be a real pastel blue, but they were more of a saturated blue right now. So was Lien's crimson red color. It should be the same shade as the ruby slippers Dorathy wore in Wizard of Oz, and right now he looked like the color of rust. Sinnion knew Lien was just complaining because they hadn't been fed yet. He figured the science nerds that bred them were just busy or something and food was just running late

Aki was rather taken aback by her sudden and to-the-point response. Maybe not the kind of person who wants to talk, he thought to himself as he nodded slowly. This girl's response to being kidnapped was way more professional and calm than his own. Not that that was his fault, because all previous kidnappings hadn't ended well. It was possible this was her first time being kidnapped. Still, that wouldn't explain why she was so calm and collected. Aki sighed and turned his attention to the wall. Well, at least he felt a little bit better now. If she wasn't worried, then there probably wasn't anything too serious to worry about... right? He shook his head. Who knows. Maybe she was just blissfully ignorant of what might happen to them. Or maybe she was in shock, trying to process what had just happened to her. He knew what that felt like, so it was a possibility. But who knows. Who knows anything about anything right now except their captors?

~Tear~

 

Tear slouched as he walked down the corridors.

Why do I have to talk to them? It sounds like so much work.

        Tear made it to the room and pushed open the door with little effort, even though it was locked. He closed it behind him and sat on a chair the was inbetween the two beds.

"Hello there", Tear said blandly.

Tear turned to the two inmates, "I am here to answer all of your questions. Whether I will answer them in order, is entirely up to me."

He stopped and looked at the two more clearly, "I will answer questions like, 'Will I be sent to k.ill your brother?' or Will Qiana attempt to betray us again to help save prisoners?"

He slouched in the chair, already worn out from talking. "Proceed with the questions".

~Qiana~

 

     Qiana was at her desk, looking up information about Eruus Sionn and Stacy. She found out that Stacy was a really god student and Eruus was an 'unitentionally popular' guy. 

    Qiana was looking to see if he was going to to meetig up with Stacy at all. If so, she would definitely have Tear kidnap them. She was tired and worn out already.

     Qiana was flipping through the school secretary book that she stole that housed all of the names and info on the students. For all she knew the school secretary was probably still looking for it.

Amaya Naramaki

Amaya sighed, seeing the look on Akira's face. She decided to cut the guy some slack. He wasn't intensely trained like she was to handle this sort of situation. To be honest? She was terrified. She wanted nothing more than to get out of here and get back to Trixie before something happened to the little red fox pup. She looked up when the new guy entered their cell. Judging from his expression, she could tell he didn't like to talk even this much. She made note of that for later. "Mind telling me why we're here then? I have a fox cub to take care of after all." Amaya ventured, wondering if this guy would answer the question. "Keep in mind I can tell when someone's lying thanks to my training." She warned, eyes narrowing as she zeroed in on the guy's body language and facial expressions, just as her mother taught her to do.

Tear sighed, then chucked manicly, this girl was putting on quite a show. Pretending to be all tough, but in reality, she was just another scared, insecure little girl.

"I am aware that you have a fox pup. Trixie? Is it? I went to see her. Found her sitting in the exact same place Qiana left her".

He then narrowed his eyes, "As for your 'training' and 'skills' to tell when someone is lying...well...let's just say..."

He stopped himslef before he went off on a rant about how every single person who came in here said that very thing.

"For now, let's just say that you're not the only Naramaki who has been here".

​This kid is going to be exactly like the other Naramaki, isn't she?

Amaya Naramaki

Amaya tensed. In her mind, she sighed in relief. Trixie was safe. Thank goodness. Predators or poachers would do anything to get a red fox. Their pelts were considered luxury items in some circles. As for the idea another Naramaki was here..."Wait...what other Naramaki? Japanese branch or American branch?" She prodded, hoping to get more information, glancing at Akira to see his reaction to what this guy was talking about. She wished she hadn't been disarmed and had her weapons with her. She'd slice this guy in half. Just because she was terrified, that didn't mean she couldn't handle herself in a fight. She knew Qiana just got lucky in the woods. She'd been caught off guard. It was only thanks to her partner Trixie that she knew the girl was there at all.

Tear rolled his eyes, what was with these Naramaki's and them saying 'American Branch or Japanese Branch'?

"That's for me to know and you not to find out", Tear said, boredly.

"Now, do either of you have anymore important questions?"

Aki listened rather tensely as his fellow prisoner and this new guy conversed. He was sure there was something weird about this guy, something out of the ordinary. But what the hey, Aki wasn't exactly normal, either. He wondered if he maybe had the ability to sense mutations or abnormalities in other people. Wait, no. That was stupid. This guy was probably just a very bored prisoner's guard who had been sent in here to keep them occupied with a little Q&A session. He sighed, considering carefully what he might ask the guy. 

"No, do either of you have anymore important questions?"

The totally bored, almost lifeless tone in his voice was threatening to drive Aki crazy with irritation. How could someone be so uncaring toward people who had just been kidnapped, some away from their loved ones? He forced down with some difficulty the urge to give the guy a piece of his mind and instead tried his best to present his questions in a way he hoped would get him a real answer instead of another 'that's-for-me-to-know-and-you-to-find-out' response. "How long will we be here?" He asked finally, "And I get if you aren't much for talking, but is my little brother going to be ok? I mean, is he safe from... this," Here Aki gestured around the room in general, "... happening to him?"
