Hide and Seek chapter 2Chapter 2
We spent days just hanging out by the cages. None of us were sure if we were just allowed to leave, and for some reason, we didn't want to risk it. We talked about it, but we still never left the confines of the 50 yards between us and the wall of trees. Occasionally Max or I wandered over to the line of trees and pocketed some berries or what little fruit we could find while still being in view of the others. At night we went back into the cages to sleep. Max and I took watch at night and we discovered that the forest had wolves. I heard them one night, howling in the middle of the night. I'm surprised it didn't wake anyone else up, it was really loud. And, on occasion, I could have sword I saw something watching us.
By the fifth or sixth day of this, a White Coat came out to us.
"What are you all doing here?" he asked. We all nearly jumped out of our wings as we turned to look at him. "You're free to go, why are you still here?"
"It's a trap," Max said. I looked over at her
MR Hide and Seek chap. 1Chapter 1
I could hear everyone rustling and shifting around in the cages we woke up in. I was the first one up as far as I knew- and after what felt like hours everyone else started to wake up too. Hours is what it felt like, anyway. It was probably only minutes. Groans began filling the room and I knew they didn't know where we were yet. It was Iggy freaking out that snapped everyone back to reality.
"What's going on??" Iggy's hoarse voice croaked out. He panicked, and for a minute, the only thing I could hear in the pitch black room was Iggy thrashing about his cage, ramming his cage into I assume Max's cage and my own cage, making a loud ruckus that could wake a deaf man from the deepest sleep in the world. I reached my hand in, getting it knocked around a little bit and grabbed Iggy's shoulder firmly. He freaked out a bit more and a chorus of us bird kids formed, trying to calm him down.
"It's okay Ig," I said once he calmed down, removing my hand finally.
"No its not. We're
MA Hide and Seek prologueIggy, what happened to you? You were never a murderer. You were far from it and now, here we are, hiding from you in fear those that are left of us, that is. Can't you see what the School has done to you?
The wind always felt great when it's slipping in between my midnight feathers as we flew through the air at top speed. My hair whipped around, occasionally blocking my sight, but I didn't care. It was a clear day out, not a bird in the sky, so I had no worries on crashing into anything. We being the six of us, plus a dog- were staying in a somewhat formation as we sailed to our next destination: Minnesota. Or Minne-SNOW-ta, as some of us preferred to call it. Why were we going there? I wasn't entirely sure, it was all Max's idea. Something about how we've gone everywhere else and how she wanted to see the Mall of America or something like that. I wasn't paying much attention at the time. Maybe it was the voice in her head that was telling her to go there.
