"We are." Tory had worked too hard in his life for it to end so soon. But it was Nikki he was more worried about, they'd at least said what they wanted him for, not her. He looked out the window again. "We should think of a back-up plan in the meantime, in case it is locked from the outside."

"Yeah we should.",Nikki said. She began to bang on the walls to see if they were hard enough to break through. Tory said that all the walls were concrete, but he was happily mistaken. Only three out of the four walls that surrounded them were concrete, the other wall was a very thin layer of plaster. "We could use our shoes as hammers and easily break this, but we won't know what's behind that wall."

((My sister stole the computer...))
 
Tory quickly crossed the room and gave the wall a kick, cracking it. This was too easy, he thought. Why would they put them in a room with a fragile wall? He just hoped they were stupid. Soon there was a small hole, and he grabbed the crumbly edges, pulling them apart.
    His fingers scraped a cinder block, and his heart fell.

((I know that feeling, my brother takes it all the time.))
Nikki peered through the hole that Tory had made, she looked at his scraped fingers and then noticed the cynder block. "Something important is definitely behind here.",she said. She thought she heard foot steps, and she panicked. She quickly stood in front of the hole protectively.

If they saw the hole-even though the attempt was hopeless-they'd be very mad. Greg, especially, had anger issues. "Hold your breath, now." Tory said, then held his own, at the same time throwing his jacket on the floor over the dust and plaster bits.

Nikki crossed her arms over her chest and leaned her back against the broken wall to make it look more natural. "Lord help us.",she whispered in a faint prayer. She saw the golden door-knob turn and she felt her heart jump. What would the kidnappers say about the attempt to escape?

"Look embarassed," Tory whispered just before the steel door flew open and Greg walked in, face set in anger. It shut behind him with a click. Tory fake-jumped and turned around, looking guilty on purpose and breathing faster, from holding his breath, kicking the wall, and acting. Thank you drama class, he thought silently.
    Greg looked from them, to the camera, to the jacket. He frowned, putting the pieces together. "We really don't care sh*t about what you do in here." he advanced menacingly, "Just leave. The camera. Alone." he shoved Tory hard onto the floor, his head whaking the wall painfully.
    He fixed the camera quickly, obviously he'd had some experience, and started to leave, "Touch the camera again, and you lose a day." he threatened before tapping on the door. It opened and he left.

"It locks from the outside.",Nikki noticed and then rushed over to Tory. She used the palm of her hand to cradle his head. "You're going to be okay, that was a tough blow, but you're going to make it through. I don't see any blood." She felt around the spot, it was tender and could easily bruise, but his head was not bleeding. She thought back to what Greg had said,"What does he mean by, I'll lose a day?"

Tory sat up, rubbing his head, "I think he may have been tlaking about me there. My dad had five days to pay the ransom. It's been three. If he runs out of time, he said he'd send 'part of me home'."
 
((I have to go again in a bit.))

"Well, that's he gonna do with the rest of you?",Nikki asked, kind of freaked out. She blew her thoughts out of her head with a deep sigh. "Forget it, you're not going to die, or be severed, because we're going to get you out of here." She began to move the cynderblocks away from the wall and she saw a light.

((Cinderblock walls are generally made with pieces of rebar through the holes, and cement. They can't just be moved around without tools. :)
Sorry I haven't been on, this weekend was busy. :/))

"Well, what's he gonna do with the rest of you?",Nikki asked, kind of still freaked out about the whole situation. She wouldn't let her mind wander to having to watch the kidnappers cut something off of Tory and sending it back home to his dad, just to get their ransom.

((So has mine. DX Today was really weird though. People kept giving my brother and I free smoothies and ice cream. 0.o ))
 
"I dunno," Tory answered, looking around the room yet again for a way out, "Maybe wait another day for the money. Do yuo think we could start a fire somehow?" he said, changing the subject.

"Yeah, I have a lighter in my—",Nikki started out, but then she paused, forgetting that her bag was no longer with her. "I mean, maybe. It's still possible, we can make like boyscouts and rub some sticks together, or strike an object against another."

"That usually only works if we have kindling..." Tory said, searching his brain for things from his science classes, "Like hay. The grass out there is dryish, but it's too far down. Even if we managed to make sparks they'd die before they got there." he froze, remembering something, "Citric acid is flammable...They don't want us to get sick. Scurvy you know. They gave me an orange once, before I made them mad." It was crazy, but possible.

"Maybe if we can get them to bring us an orange or a lemon, then we can start a fire up and burn this place down. Then they'll have nowhere to keep us, and we can both run home.",Nikki told Tory and sighed. She didn't think that the plan would work one hundred precent, but she had faith. She wanted to get out of the presence of her kidnappers so badly that she would try almost anything.

"We'd light something on fire, my shirt is cotton, that'd work, and throw it out the window." Tory said, hoping this would work. He was rather fond of his fingers. "Concrete doesn't burn, but the room will fill with smoke at least. They'll come in here, probably, and we'll be hidden by smoke. Like in Sherlock Holmes. Maybe we can escape then without them even noticing."
