"Get up! Zenia, please!" A strong hand wrapped around my lifeless forearm. I recognized the voice, but I could do nothing to reply.

"The boy, get him quick," The slow, flat tone of the robots demanded.

"I'm so sorry, Zenia," The hand slid from my arm and footsteps rang through the metal room.

They're leaving me, The thought settled into my head. No! My head screamed. I tried to lift my head, and wiggle my fingers, I couldn't. There wasn't much time until they left me for good. I couldn't stay here alone, I would die if I did. I tried again, this time my eyes flew open and my whole body reacted. I bolted upright and tore out the needle that punctured my left forearm, and the tubes that were set in my nose. Yanking off the blankets, I took off down the hall.

The others had talked about escaping, but I had never realized so soon. My eyes scanned the unfamiliar surroundings of the facility. I caught the sight of his denim jeans. I followed him, hoping it was my best chance out.

"Jett!" I yelled, close to his heels. He didn't stop to look back, but I doubt he could have even heard me.

"There she is," A robotic voice echoed. They looked human, but their metallic pupiless eyes and robotic voice told you different.

My legs stretched out from under me as I ran down the metal halls searching for a way to escape them. The deafening clanks and tings drowning out the sounds of our captors . The warning sirens wailed, sending the signal that their test subjects had escaped. My thin fingers touched the metal walls, listening, feeling for something. I breathed a heavy sigh of relief and my lips turned into a small smile. With one last glimpse at them I turned the corner and bolted toward the closing metal doors. It was a long shot, but I dove.

"Let's go Zenia! Move it!" I crawled quickly before the door could crush my legs to bits. The others who had escaped before myself were frantically waving me down. I ran as fast as my legs would take me.

I climbed into the stolen sleek, silver hover car and took a breath of relief. I pressed my overheated face on the chilled metal floor in hopes of cooling down. As I cooled down, I rolled over onto my back my chest still heaving from the escape.

"Come on, Ryker, take us home," Nyx murmured beneath her breath. I sat and searched the car.

"There's only 4, where's, Jett?" My eyes wide, how could they leave him. I stood prepared to go look for him.

"I slipped out before you," Jett appeared, a beer in hand, leaning against the door that opened to the small conference room in the car.

"No man left behind," Kade laughed, and leaned back beside Ryker.

"You were going to leave me," I pointed at Jett accusingly.

"No, we were going to come back for you, but lucky for us your ass got up," He grinned, while the rest of the group cracked up. Reluctantly, I joined.

"We did it," Nyx said, her deep crystal blue eyes lit up and a smile spread across her thin lips.

It's 2140, and maybe we still have a chance.
