"Oh I see.",Nikki said, before she noticed a camera. It was wired up to the ceiling in the corner. She used her hands and feet to climb up the wall and grabbed the camera, begginning to disable it. "That might keep them busy for a while.",she said in an exhale as she jumped down.
"They'll just replace it," Tory said, watching, "But it couldn't hurt. And we'll have a bit to plan without them watching. I don't know if it has audio." he looked out the window at the sun, checking the time, "Where do you live?" he asked.
"At the orphanage.",Nikki said briefly and shrugged,"Well, mostly the orphanage, I spend quite some time at the shelter as well." She climbed back up and grabbed the camera. She yanked it from its wires and smashed it on the floor, leaving the lense shattered and whatever audio there was would be screwed up.
((Sorry if my replies are late, I'm multitasking right now.))
"I mean, what state and city. Oh and, what time was it when you were taken?" Tory stared out the window, a slight frown of concentration on his face.
((I have to go do dishes, I'll be back in a bit.))
"I was taken from New York, Manhattan to be exact at around 3'oclock.",Nikki said as she gave the camera one more swift kick. "What about you? Where were you taken from?" She sighed and took a look at the ceiling, even it was covered in cement.
"Iowa." he stared at the window, watching the sun set. "I think...I think we are in Pensylvania. Or somewhere around there."
"Wait, we don't even know where we are?!",Nikki asked, slightly scared now. She always had a sense of direction, and she bet her bottom there was a map in her backpack. "We need to get out of here, any idea what they want?"
"Ransom, for me." Tory said, gritting his teeth, "The day I first came here they called my dad, and demanded a million dollars by five days." And he was on day three.
"Well, they can't call anyone for me.",Nikki said and crossed her arms. "I'm going to die, so I wish you a nice life." She hit her head against the wall and wondered how many times she would have to do that to die.
"When they brought you here they said you were 'money'." Tory said, confused, "Why would they abduct you without ransom?" A dark thought crossed his mind, and he tried to push it away. There were other ways to get money for young girls.
Nikki widened her eyes and shook her head back and forth. "I am a virgin and I plan to keep it that way.",She stated blandly, although she had a feeling that the kidnappers didn't. "I refuse to play this game anymore, I want food and I want out!"
"We need to escape either tonight nor tomorrow," Tory said, trying to think of a plan. Walking to the window, he pulled himself up and looked out yet again. Grass, turning brownish from the summer, acres of it. No buildings. Some trees farther back.
He dropped back down and paced the room.
Nikki reached into her back pocket and pulled out a bobby pin. "We could use this to pick the door!",she whispered excitedly,"Do they usually sleep together or do they take shifts?" She imagined that he knew.
"I'm not sure what they do. It's not quite dark yet, so they could both be awake." he examined the lock, "It could work, if it isn't padlocked from the other side too. Do you know how?"
((I have to go eat dinner, bye!))
Nikki laughed at the question, mischevious lights danced in her gray eyes. "Do I know how to pick a lock?",she repeated the question mockingly,"Do you know how to recite the ABCs?" It was really that easy for her to pick locks, she had learned at a young age.
"Forwards, backwards, outward from the middle, inward from the middle, in German, and Spanish." Tory answered. When he learned something, he usualyl learned it thoroughly. "Okay then, let's just hope it isn't double locked."
"That's a lot of alphabetizing.",Nikki said with her gray eyes wide open. "I know it in English and in German, but not backwards, inwards, in the middle either way or in Spanish." She shrugged her shoulders up and down and looked out at the setting son. "Once the first star in the sky appears, we'll make a run for it."
Tory glanced at the disabled camera, "They'll be back soon. Any minute now they'll see that the camera's dead. Maybe after they fix it, they'll leave us alone long enough because they just saw us..." he drifted off, thinking about everything that could go wrong. He mentally shook himself, no point in that, "The camera has been down for several minutes now, obviously they don't watch it all the time."
"I'm not saying that they should watch it all the time, but it's smarter if they watch it more often, because you and I are a smart pair of kids.",Nikki said as she ran a hand through her brown hair. "We're going to make it out of hear alive, I assure you."
