The sound of a high pitched scream awoke the redhead, she shot straight up in her position in a bottom bunk and slowly crawled out of bed. Her head felt heavy and she felt blinded by the bright lights clinging to the walls that lit the otherwise dim room. Meeting with the floor, she slumped over before straightening her back then immediately taking note of the odd attire. Blue scrubs? She wrinkled her nose at the sight, fingers prying it away from her skin only to snap back. Instead of announcing that she was awake like the others, she slowly crept them and examined the scene in order to try and understand what was happening. Top row of teeth collided with her bottom lip as the screams continued, making her frown and her face grow red. What was happening? Only flashes came to her, protesting with several other factions and then a building erupted in flames. The running, the panting, then being tackled into the pavement. Fingers reached up to where she had smacked her forehead bloody only to find it had been reduced to a scab and a rather pale bruise. The rest was a blur of images that was incomprehensible, even trying to think of anything past smacking her head in was difficult.
Feeling woozy, the girl attempted to approach the group only to weakly collapse onto the ground. Without a full moon, she was rendered useless and better off dead in her human form.
Green eyes narrowed at the man yelling at him, what else was he supposed to do? Wait for him to be next on the torture list and end up like poor Alexa, the thought made him grimace. That's not how he wanted to end up, not like his Dhampir brethren who had been gifted such an unfortunate circumstance. "If we get them to open the door, we could all run for it.
" Reece angrily spat to the older man, wondering why they were so easy to give up and let these strangers decide their fate. A thud surprised him and he jumped up to see a young red haired girl sprawled about on the ground. The blonde woman, who had yet to introduce herself, skipped over to her then got onto her knees beside her. Long, slender fingers stroked the redhead's locks as she whistled a lively tune for the girl. An eyebrow was cocked at the woman's activities but he shrugged it off as nothing important and looked to the door, examining it and trying to locate a weakness.
