Revenge (part two)

Hours, Minutes, Seconds, with each passing one my wrists ached more. The girl paced below me glaring up at me from time to time.
"What? Plan not working out?" I shouted down at her. I felt the hook suddenly jerk and slack as I fell several feet and was yanked to a stop before slamming into the ground. She grabbed my chin pulling it close to her.
"You will repay for what you did," She insisted.
"Repay? For what? Finally telling you to tell the truth?! Your ridiculous Isabelle," I spit in her face. She smacked me hard across the face her anger boiling.

"Fine," She said, "Time to send a message." She yanked me from the hook and dragged me over onto one of the assembly lines. She latched metal clasps onto my already bound wrists and ankles.
"Just so you don't roll off," She said, "Do you know what this factory used to make?"

"No," I growled struggling against the restraints.
"Neither do I," She insisted, "But I've modified it so it does other stuff." She walked over to the wall pressing a switch bringing the whole area to life. The assembly line start to move, and I looked up to see down the path see a saw in the middle of it all.
"Wow, Old much?" I mocked as I kept moving closer toward the saw.
"Scream Jackson, Scream for him," She laughed.

"No," I said through clenched teeth trying to get out of the clasps. The saw started to get closer, and I felt myself start to panic. Where was he?
"Jake," I barely said, "JAKE!" I heard Isabelle laugh and I felt the saw starting to brush and shred my shoes. The sound of machinery dying caused me to look forward and see Jake having shoved a metal pole into the assembly line and saw.
"Darklight," Isabelle hissed.
"If you wanted me to come so badly you could have just called," Jake sighed unclasping me and unbinding me, "I'm so sorry I'm late."
"Don't do that again ok?" I said as he held me close.
"I promise," He said brushing a stray piece of my hair. Something flew towards us hitting me in the side. I swore looking down at the small throwing knife. I glared up hard at Isabelle.
"I will not loose!" She screamed, "You will forever regret not trusting me Jackson." She turned around running from the building. Jake held onto me as my knees buckled.
"Easy," He insisted.
"What is up with people and stabbing me with knifes?" I laughed trying to lighten the mood.
Jake tried to laugh while his eyes started to tear, "I don't know, but you promise you won't die on me?"
"I promise," I said as he kissed me, and I blacked out.

Revenge (part one)

I walked down the rain wet sidewalk toward the cross walk. The girl with brown hair stood by the building close by glaring at me with hate. I ignored her crossing the road toward the trail leading to my street. Clip its of the conversation passed through my mind as I starred back to find the girl gone. The sound of tries screeching came from in front of me, and I looked up to see a black van stop close by. I started to walk faster breaking into a run. I turned a corner and something hit me hard in the stomach. My breath whooshed out of me, and I fell to the ground. I starred up to see the girl standing over me holding a metal bar.

"Good night Jade," She smirked bringing the bar down hard on my head causing me to black out.

* * * * *

I woke up in the back of a van. My head throbbed and my wrists and ankles were bound together. I looked up at the windows of the back doors only to find them fogged over.

"Crap," I hissed under my breath. The van jerked hitting a bump in the road sending me into the wall of the van. I cursed as the van pulled to a stop. The back doors opened, and two dark figures roughly yanked me out and towards a building. I smiled noticing the lake stretching out behind it towards a small city below massive mountains. A view I had grown up seeing all my life.

"Idiots!" A voice exclaimed from the building, "Now she knows where we are!"

"Sorry miss," One of the guards holding me said.

"Sorry won't cut it!" She growled. There was the sound of a gun shot and the men holding me both collapsed along with me. The girl walked over cutting the rope from my ankles.

"Do anything and I'll kill you," She hissed pointing the pocket knife she held to my throat. She grabbed me roughly by the arm and shoved me toward the building. Unused assembly line took up most of the area, and the girl stopped me in the middle of the area.

"Now," She said, "All we have to do is set you up and wait."

"What do you mean?" I asked confused as she retied my ankles. She smiled reaching up and slipping a metal hook between the rope binding my hands. I gasped as my feet suddenly left the ground, and I found myself dangling from the ceiling.

"I wouldn't try struggling if I were you," The girl called up, "You might hurt yourself." She laughed disappearing from view.

The wind whipped around the corner, moaning and warning me that what I was about to do could change everything. I glanced down at my phone and then up at him. I knew that if I didn't say something now that I wouldn't have the courage to do it later.
"Aiden I need to tell you something," I said, and he looked at me with those baby blue eyes I loved so much, "Everyone says that we like each other, but we've never said it to each other."
"What do you mean?" He asked looking at me a bit confused.
"I mean we haven't ever said it, face to face." I sighed just begging for him to understand. He still looked at me with a puzzled look.
"Adrian!" A voice exclaimed as one of my friends came down the sidewalk.
"Hey you," I said giving her a huge. She smiled as the bell rang, and she walked past us.
"I better go," Aiden insisted giving me a huge, "Bye."
"Bye," I sighed watching him leave. My heart feeling like it had been torn from my chest.

Silence. The whole area was silent. I leaned in the chair in the far corner of the room as the girl with flowing blond hair paced the room.
"Would you quit doing that it's annoying," I huffed running a worried hand through my long dark brown hair.
"Where is he though?" She insisted continuing to pace. I sighed letting the legs of the chair touch the ground and walked toward her.
"Ever," I said grasping her shoulders to stop her from pacing. We stood at the same height starring into each other's eyes.
"You're right," She sighed, "I'm sorry." She sat down on the couch as the door suddenly opened. A boy with shaggy blond hair walked in wearing jeans and a casual white sweater.
"Sam!" Ever exclaimed rushing over to his waiting arms. A boy followed him in shutting the door behind him. His fedora hat was pulled close over his curly brown hair and his deep eyes shone bright. He wore dark clothes like always.
"You're ever that late again, and I'll have to kill you," I insisted.
He laughed, "I don't doubt that you would, Adrain." My name seemed foreign on his lips, and I shook my head.
"Aiden," I said, "You weren't followed right?"
"I don't know," He stated Moving toward the only window in the room. He peered out into the dark city below. I looked around him seeing the only light in the city coming from the tall building in the middle of the whole place.
"I should get him out of here," Aiden said moving away and back into the room. I nodded sadly, and he stopped looking at me.
"This wasn't just for her was it?" He questioned his eyes filled with concern.
"Yeah," I said, "It wasn't." He grabbed me by the waist pulling me close to him and kissed me. I closed my eyes only feeling his soft lips against mine. Loud voices came from down the hall, and we quickly broke away. Aiden swore under his breath as the door was blow from it's hinges. Dust filled the room blurring my vision.
"NO!" I heard Ever scream from somewhere off to my right.
"EVER!" I shouted trying to make my way toward her. Something hit me hard in the stomach sending me tumbling to the ground.
"Pathetic little protector," A husk voice growled. I starred up at a man with a stubble beard and mostly shaved head.
"General," I grunted.
"Still weak as ever?" He asked. I lashed out with my foot, and he caught it in mid kick.
"Forget who trained you Adrain?" He twisted his wrists snapping my ankle to a wrong angle. I gasped in surprise as he release it. I fell to the ground unable to move.
"Better luck next time?" He laughed turning around and disappearing.
"ADRAIN!" I could hear Ever's scream fading farther away.
"No," I panted the blackness of pain enveloping me into nothingness.

I sat in the hard metal chair in the middle of the circle of light. My hands were tied roughly behind me, and my wrists feldt raw from trying to get them loose. My legs were tied close to the chair and had gone numb hours ago.
"Where's your hero Adrian? Did he abandon you again?" A girl's voice mocked from the darkness.
"Shut up," I hissed.
"Oo, touchy," She stepped forward into the light standing in front of me. Her orange hair reached to her shoulders in a wave like style.
"What do you want, Ember?"
"The simpliest thing. I beat you can guess."
"Oh you are a smart one."
I laughed, "I've been through enough to know that most people that do this want revenge from me. So why is it you want it?" I cocked my head to the side giving a small smile.
"Why do you think? Isn't it easy to guess?" She retorted.
"Oh yea it is easy, but it's useless of you to do so. He already likes me," I said. She let out a scream slashing out with something sharp across my cheek. I felt blood stream from the gash and down my cheek.
"Well that won't do," A voice said from in the darkness.
"What?!" Ember gasped backing away as a boy with short curly brown hair stepped into the circle.
"Aiden," I said, "Your late."
"So sorry," He smirked, "I had a few things to take care of."
"Shut up!" Ember screached suddenly placing a knife to my throat, "You will do what I say or she dies." Aiden looked at me and then up at Ember.
"No I won't," He insisted. I felt the knife graze my neck as Ember was yanked back into the dark. I heard her scream and then it was cut off. Aiden walked toward me untying me from the chair.
"Remind me to kill you later," I said slugging him in the arm.
He laughed, "Don't count on that."
