No plot restrictions anything excepted.
The melody played louder and louder in my head. "Make it stop", I cried out "make it stop its hurting me", i screamed out in utter agony. "well, well lucy you know we can`t do that its all part of the test", a strange man in a lab coat explained.
No I don't know. I yell at the man in the lab coat. Why am I even here is there something wrong with me?I asked the lab coat man. We don't know yet he said.
If you don`t know yet then why am i here. I want to go home.Just let me go home, i begged
I try and pull out the speaker devices, but before I can get them out of my ears. The man in the lab coat plays the music louder and sends static electricity up my arms and legs and i fall to the ground. "Make it stop, please just make it stop!" i yell cluching my ears.
Each sound wave brings a new wave of pain and nausea to my head. I let out a scream and grip my teeth. My eyes are clenched shut.
"Now, now, Lucy. Be a good little girl for me and open your eyes."
The man in the lab coat leans over me. His breath smells like coffee. He turns up the volume even louder. Electric shocks dance on my skin.
Across the room is another person then me and my lab coat man, he doesn't look any older then five. He got reddish orange hair and eyes as green as an evergreen forest. His pale skin is shaking I guess because of fear. His lab coat man is hooking him to a machine which makes plays horrible sounds that sound like people are screeching for him help them.
I crack my eyes open just a little to see the man in the lab coat grinning like a maniac. "Now theres a good girl", he says. I quickly shut my eys close and the music turns up insainly loud. "Lucy, the man says all you have to do is pass this test and everything will get better. After that everything went black.
I open my eyes again. I and the little boy are still here but my lab coat man is not,instead there is a large brown haired woman wearing a white lab coat like my first lab coat person. Can I go home now? I ask. No we got to run more tests the lab coat woman said. Her breath also smells like coffee like my lab coat man.
"can`t we do the test later, i want to go home", i complained. "Clare, we don`t want to hurt you we just want whats best for you i hpe you understand", the strange lady said. After that the strange women leaves and i am left alone with only the little boy to keep me company.
What is your name? i ask the little boy. Andrew Tipits he said. What is your name? Andrew asked. Lucy Clare i say. How long have you been here Andrew? i asked him. since i was then he put three fingers.
He's been here since he was three and is still breathing. I haven't even been here for a full day, and I'm ready to stop breathing.
"I'm going to get us out of here," I tell Andrew. "We're going to be okay."
"No," he says. "I tried escaping. They gave me these." Andrew points to the scars on his arms, then turns around and lifts the back of his tattered t-shirt. On his back are scars as big as my arm. No five-year-old should have go through that pain.
I want to leave even more now but I realized that I'll be able to go home when they're done with me. I'm going to get us out of here I promise myself. How often do the lab coat people take breaks for? I ask Andrew. One to Two hours at a time Andrew says.
I tried to sit up but i couldnt the pain in my body was too much. I did a double take and tried again but i was too weak to sit up. "I`ll get us out of here", i said to andrew right before i passed out
I wake to the smell of coffee. It must fuel the evil in these scientists.
"Andrew?" I call out weakly. "Are you there?"
"Honey?" someone says. I sit up immediately. It's my father. And I'm in my old bedroom.
"Dad?" I call out. "Where are you?"
Suddenly, the bed covers are twisting around me. There's a hole in the bed.
"Help!" I call. "Dad!"
"Lucy!" he calls. I almost can't hear him. "Lucy! I love you..."
I can taste the IV injected into my skin.
"Dad?" I murmur weakly.
"No." says a male voice. "You're far away from your dad."
What kind of fitly mind tricks are they playing on me?i think to myself. Then i hear a voice in my head that's not my own. the strange voices says to me, Lucky you have mind like no one else we are just trying to figure it out.
"Figure what out?!" I scream. "This is murder!" I scream.
This is not murder the man said. Why are you guys trying to firgure out my mind?! I sreamed at my lab coat man.
"because lucy, your special and you have been scince the day you been born", the man said "how do you know im special, i don`t even know you", Lucy said. "Lucy i know this because i am your father but ever science you learned to walk, i stopped being your father", the man says.
How can You just stop being someone father? I ased the man. Even if you were my father why would you be putting me through this?! I yelled at him.
"Someday, Lucy, you will understand the magic of science." he says. "But for now, you're just an 11 year old girl. A very special 11 year old girl. And us scientists are just trying to get the facts."
