All I could hear was the beating of my heart and the rhythm of my feet running on the road; every now and then a small car or huge truck would zoom past me before I could even think of asking for a lift, but this time I appear to be lucky. A massive truck transporting eggs to a shop stopped right next to me.
“Have you figured out how you’re going to save me yet?” he asked, turned to me and smiled.
I was stuck in the middle of an acid pond at the age of 1; it wasn’t deadly acid- it only felt like it. I accidentally felt into it and my dad being a scientist just had to study the effects of it.
I stared at the dark path in front of me in the wood, after my parents forgot about me when we went camping and they drove home.
“You’ll protect me, right teddy?” I wailed and hugged my favourite toy.
“Honey…are you ok?” mom asked when entering my room.
“No! Granddad…is dead! He was the only one except you who cared about me” I sobbed and broke out into hysterical crying.
The awful flashbacks didn’t stop until Malcolm greeted me with a hug when we reached his house.
“So…uh…what did you find about Mandy?” I asked, slowly coming to my senses.
“Yes; over here” I replied and lead me to the dining room.
He took a note out of the fruit bowl and gave it to me, flashing me a sympathetic smile.
“A note?” I said surprised when I had it in my hands.
“Yes. I don’t know how it got here, but I think it’s important” Malcolm replied and I slowly folded the note open.
I know about the bomb. You tried to protect me, but it didn’t work. Someone saved me, and I know how to save the mysterious figure. You have one chance to save me before the disease spreads. I need you!
Barrels full of love
After I read it, probably about 10 times just to see her handwriting, I turned it over to find something written at the back.
‘Tomorrow, 6 AM, Flash Docks
Be there or lose hope’
Hope you enjoyed! I wanted to get this up last weekend but school decided to cut in. -__-
