Hope Is What They Crave(Lit. & ded. only)

Relxing her shoulders visibly in relief,  Eione let a small, genuine smile cross her face. "Nice to meet you, Bri. And sure - I'll take whatever bunk you don't want. I'm not picky." Taking a seat on the edge of a bunk, prepared to move if Bri wanted to. Pausing for a moment, she considered. Best to be honest. In a place like this, they couldn't afford anything but the truth, it seemed. "I'm from a place called Lancaster in Pennsylvania. Not sure how familiar you are with the states. But I've been all over the county out there - country land and cities. Never stayed in one spot too long, honestly." With a shrug she gave a sheepish smile. It never had bugged her, moving from place to place. Except for that last year, but those were things to be told at a later time. "And you?"

"That's cool." Bri said, glad that the other girl was willing to become friends. "I'm from Washington state. My parents were just as scared by what I could do as the rest of the public was. They thought that this place would be able to help me control my "abilities." But all they're doing is supressing them." She sighed at the thought of her family. She wished she were back there with them.

Myra turned to Zeva. "Should we get settled, then, and pick out a bunk?"

With a small frown, Eione nodded, looking down at her hands. She realized then just how dangerous some of them could be. Even some of the more seemingly useless powers that were literally a pain to use could prove deadly dependng on how they were used. Those in this place would have to learn a good respect for people. If something ever happened, if their powers ever came back... "I think they all just wanted to help," she said quietly, pulling her knees to her chest, "I don't think anyone thought we'd end up here."

((In answer to Courage's question, there should be at least two other guys. However, that person hasn't posted at all. I'll see if I can find them to remind them of their characters.))

"Yeah..." Bri agreed quietly, lost in her thoughts. "I have to wonder what would happen if they let us go."

Autumn thought about it for a second share information with total strangers. Well I could possibly die in here so what the he.ll she thought to herself. "I'm from New York, Westhampton. My parents didn't want me to go but I was kidnapped on my way to school." she said explaining how she ahd gotten here. "I come from Ohio, unknown town I was taken during school when my power showed up." she sighed regretfully.
 
(Sorry guys I ahd a tennis match very far away.)

((Go Ohio!)) Zeva carefully got back to ground level, narrowly avoiding hitting her head again. "Ok, so did any of you see a sympathetic guard or something? Someone we could bribe?"

"I saw one" pointed out Autumn "Except she was a nurse.
 
"And I saw one. Front desk checked me in" replied Michele

"Could they help us sneak out though? A nurse could help us survive in the meantime, but the woman at the front desk probably doesn't have much use," Zeva pointed out.

"We need someone who can operate a helicopter," Myra pointed out. "And someone who it's excusable to be seen alone with."

"Exactly. Or even just a guard. They carry keys, right? If anything they could get us some information or introduce us to some people who can help us more," Zeva agreead, nodding her head.

"What we really need," said Myra, thrusting out her wrists, "is to get these stupid handcuffs off. The rest would be very simple." She sighed, then thought of something. "Okay, here's a thought; what if we were somehow able to, I don't know, hide, while we we're free, during the workday? Just one of us. Hide until we're supposed to get the cuffs back on, and somehow trick the guards. Maybe then we'd be able to get them off long enough for whatever's in them that's diminishing our power to wear off."

"I like it. I think I would be able to do it. I'm used to sneaking off for things, though they were much less serious than this," Zeva offered. She always told her parents that pranking wasn't such a bad thing.

"We should at least try it out, anyway. Even if it fails, we'll know how not to escape." Myra blew her hair out her face again.

Bri sat, not trying to eavesdrop but hearing the girls in the next bunk all the same. "Uh, hi. I didn't mean to listen into your conversation, but I just happened to overhear what you were saying." She cleared her throat. "I'm guessing that the camp people will do roll call, so I'm not sure hiding will work. You can try but.."

Myra considered this. "Not if we slip away while we're supposed to be working, then come back right when they call roll to go back. Maybe someone can create a distraction, so they can sneak past without getting the cuffs again."

"OK, but why would the take the cuffs off?" Bri said, confusion ringing through her voice. "They don't trust us, so why would they give us the perfect time to set them on fire, or twist the gates up, or whatever?"

"What I'm getting at is, they have to take the cuffs off for us to work, right? And I know they would never let us take them off long enough for anything to wear off. If someone with a useful power managed to get past a guard without getting their cuffs back on, we may have enough time for whatever it is to wear off." Myra explained.
