Shadic had been in her cell for a while now, replaying what she was going to attempt soon in her mind. She sensed that she was being watched, and looked up to see that Joe, who was sitting on top of his bed, was indeed watching her.
“What?” Shadic asked.
“You ok?” he asked simply.
“Yeah, why?” she said curiously.
“One, you’re usually asleep by now. Two, you haven’t reminded me not to talk to you yet. Three, you’ve been sitting there for the last few hours muttering to yourself. And four, you look all pale.” Joe answered as he counted off his fingers. Shadic raised an eyebrow.
“Since when do you pay attention to what I’m doing?” she asked. Joe shrugged innocently. Shadic sighed. She got up from her bed to look through the bars into Fran’s cell. “Hey, do you think that people had started leaving yet?” she asked him.
“A few, maybe. Except for the night-shift guards,” he answered. Shadic went back to her bed to retrieve the piece of stalagmite.
“What’s going on with you lately?” Joe asked. Shadic smiled and tossed the stalagmite up and down.
“I hope you’re ready for an adventure, ‘cause GUN’s getting their payback tonight, and you’re gonna help,” she told him. She went to examine the door. Like she had thought, beneath the slot where card-keys were inserted, was a hole where a key would fit in perfectly. She used the small pointed stone to pick the lock. It swung open in moments.
“I am?” Joe asked.
“Yep.” Shadic took hole of his wrist and pulled him out of the cell, then began to unlock Fran’s cell. “And if you don’t, you’re gonna miss out on everything.”
“Just what are you planning to do?” Fran asked as his cell door opened.
“We’re gonna cause the biggest jailbreak of all time!”
“What?” Fran and Joe exclaimed in unison.
“Don’t tell me that you’d rather stay here.” Shadic said in disbelief.
“Are you nuts?” Joe asked. Shadic shrugged.
“Maybe. C’mon, we have a lot of people to free,” she insisted. She went towards the door that led out into the hall and rested her hand on the handle. She waited for Fran and Joe to follow also. Joe let out a low whistle and gave Fran a worried look, then looked back at Shadic.
“I think you might’ve trained a little too hard today. What you’re saying is completely crazy. Maybe you should lay down and get some rest, ya know?”
“I’m not crazy! Listen, I just feel like I gotta do this. If you won’t help me, fine.”
“You don’t have to do anything.” Fran said wisely. Both he and Joe thought that Shadic was simply stressed-out. Shadic let her hand slowly slip off the handle, and looked at both of them sadly.
“It’s impossible for you to understand how I feel. There are probably hundreds of innocent people locked away here, and I think it’s up to me to set them free. I was created for the sole purpose of hurting all the people on the planet. But I want to use my life to save those same people. And now I want to make it clear that that’s my choice. I thought that you would have wanted to be a part of this, but if you don’t want to then you can stay here and rot for all I care!” her voice echoed off of the walls, then there was silence.
“Now that you’ve given that little speech, I think I’ll come along.” Fran said. He closed his eyes, “It couldn’t hurt to be able to see the sky again before I’m food for the worms.”
“Thank you.” Shadic said gratefully. Fran stood next to her, and both looked expectantly at Joe. He crossed his arms and shook his head.
“I think I’ll take my chances here,” he said.
“Boy, have you been here so long that you’ve forgotten what freedom’s like?” Fran asked him.
“Have you been here so long that you’ve forgotten that when you try to run away you’ll just get caught and be worse off?” Joe said back.
“You know better than to talk to me like that boy!” Fran said angrily. He stepped towards him, but Shadic put a hand on his shoulder.
“Let’s just go, he doesn’t have to come if he doesn’t want to,” she whispered. Fran nodded understandingly. So they left Joe behind and started wandering through the halls.
* * * * *
“Do you know where you’re going?” Fran asked.
“Kinda…” Shadic answered slowly.
“You don’t have a clue, eh?”
“Nope,” she admitted. Fran chuckled.
“Up one floor and to the left,” he said confidently.
“How’d you kn-“ Shadic began before Fran held up a hand to silence her.
“Worked here for a few years, remember?”
“Would you happen to know where the keys to this place are? Or is that asking too much?”
"Do birds know which way is south?" he responded.
"So where is it?"
"Where else? In the hands of a guard." Fran said. Shadic groaned. Fran chuckled again and stopped walking. Shadic instinctively halted at his side. "Now I didn't say that we couldn't get it did I? See, I keep track of which guard is at what post, and the one I'm talking about isn't the brightest color in the crayon box. Wouldn't know friend from foe. So all I've got to do is dress up as another guard and offer to watch over his post for the night. Easy as thawing an ice block out in the desert."
"What do I do?" Shadic asked. A gleam appeared in Fran's eyes.
"Just be yourself, and follow my lead,” he answered. He led Shadic further down the hall to a large storage room.
Once inside, he began to look for something. Shadic stood watch to make sure they weren't found by someone who may stroll through the halls on a trip to the bathroom.
"Ha!" came Fran's voice. "Found it." He came out from behind a small mountain of junk, dragging with him an old GUN uniform. He slipped it on with little difficulty. "Bah, I look ridiculous in this don't I?" he asked.
"You look like an idiot all right." Shadic agreed.
"Ah well, at least I look the part. And just wait until you see your costume." Fran said before disappearing behind the teetering junk pile again.
"Hey, I thought you said that I just had to be myself. You didn't say anything about playing dress-up!" Shadic reminded him.
"I didn't tell any lies either. At the moment your a prisoner right? And a stubborn one at that." he added.
"You say that like it's a crime to stick up for myself." she said with a shrug, "So what's the moral of the story?"
"Gee, aren't they teaching you kids anything in school these days?" Fran said as he continued rummaging through box after box.
"Couldn't say, I've never gone remember?"
"Well, that explains a lot."
"Hey," ran came up from a box he was searching through and waved a night stick at Shadic, "don't talk to Uncle Fran like that when he's got a stick."
"Alright, alright." Shadic gave in. "So what'cha looking for anyway?"
"Learn a little patience will you? It's been years since I've last went on a scavenger hunt, and I don't have your energy anymore."
"We don't have all night ya know."
"Now what did I just tell you? Ah, here it is!" Fran announced. He came back into sight with a pair of shiny handcuffs. "Heh, the guard gets the goofy looking uniform; the jail bird gets the restraints!"
"Lucky me..." Shadic said with a frown.
"Come here and let me put'em on you."
"Do I have to?" Shadic complained.
"Now!" Fran ordered loud enough so that his voice must have carried farther than was needed.
"Not so loud!" I hope you know what you're doing." Shadic put her hands behind her back and let Fran put the handcuffs on her.
"There, very befitting." Fran said when he was finished.
"It's uncomfortable and if I fall I'll land flat on my face." Shadic complained again.
"That's the basic point. Now we both look like idiots."
"Ok, don't rub it in. We'd better go before we get caught."
"Right. Now remember, we've gotta make this convincing."
"This'll be the easy part." Shadic said.
The two left the storage room and climbed a flight of stairs. They walked through a set of doors labeled prison sector C. Shadic was shocked to find that all of the cells were filled with mere children. As she stared at all of them, sadness and anger built up inside of her. She must have slowed her pace, because Fran tapped her lightly on the shoulder with his nightstick and nodded at another guard who was watching their approach.
"Pay attention." Fran murmured out the side of his mouth.
"Hey, are you authorized to be on this floor?" the young man questioned.
"Are you authorized to interfere with my business?" Fran countered.
"Is that a trick question?" the man said blankly.
"I have to transfer this prisoner to another cell." Fran explained. The man thought about this and looked Shadic over.
"Ain't you that thing that's dangerous?" he asked her.
"Very good, stupid human! You win a prize!" Shadic responded with fake praise. The man scratched his head thoughtfully.
"You don't seem very dangerous to me." he declared.
"Oh yeah?" Shadic challenged, "If I wasn't in these handcuffs I swear I'd change your mind."
"Then why don't you use your magical warping powers to get out of'em?"
"Because," Fran interjected, "she knows that an alarm goes off whenever Chaos Control is detected on this property." He said this more to Shadic than to the guard because he knew that in reality, she didn't know about the alarm system.
"She must have been snooping around on our computer to know that. That's worth a heavy punishment ya know." the man informed.
"Exactly right, that's why she's being moved to this sector." Fran answered, deciding to go along with this story.
"Well, then lock her up and get back to our own post so I can get back to my nap."
"Um, oh right...right." Fran said slowly. He glanced at Shadic, and she gave a little nod. "Do you have the key?" he asked the guard. He responded by tossing him a ring of keys. Fran caught them and opened the nearest empty cell for Shadic.
"You do know what you're doing, right?" Shadic whispered as she passed him on the way in.
"Yeah, I think so." he answered before shutting and locking the door again.
"Ok, you can go away now." the guard told Fran.
"Hey, I've got an idea." Fran began. He walked back to the man to talk. Shadic could no longer see them, so she listened carefully. "I don't have anything left to do tonight. How about I watch over things here, and you go home and get some sleep. Looks like you need it."
"Hmm," the man thought, "what's the catch?"
"No catch. I'm just a bored old man offering to make your life easier." he paused, "I can understand if you'd rather stay here."
"No, no, no! You've got yourself a deal." the man said quickly.
"That's what I thought. You go on now." Fran said. The man got up and practically ran past Shadic's cell and out the door, slamming it shut behind him.
"Ok, now can I get out of here?" Shadic asked impatiently.
"You sure you don't want to stay?" Fran teased.
"Dead sure! When this is over I never want to see another cell again."
"I hear that." Fran said as he swung the door open.
"All right!" Shadic said excitedly, "Lets get outta here!"
"One second, lets get those handcuffs off of you first."
"Oh, yeah, that would help." Shadic turned around so he could unlock them. After a minute, however, he still hadn't gotten them off.
"Uh, oh." Fran murmured.
"Uh, oh?" Shadic repeated, "What's that supposed to mean?"
"I can't find the right key."
"Well how many are there?"
"Um, a lot." he answered. He showed her the ring, which was full of keys.
"Aww man, give me a break!"
"Excuse me, Miss?" came a small voice from the cell across from them. It was a young brown female fox. Her ears were flattened as if she were afraid.
"Me?" Shadic asked. The fox nodded.
"I think that's the right key.” She pointed at the ring, and one of the keys was floating even though nothing supported it. Fran, who was still holding the ring, watched the floating key in bewilderment. Shadic looked from the key back to the girl with her mouth partly opened.
"How are you doing that?" Shadic questioned. The young fox's tail twitched uncomfortably.
“I don’t know, I always could,” she answered to the floor. Fran took the key and successfully released Shadic from the handcuffs. Shadic rubbed her wrists, but never took her eyes off of the child.
“Can all of you do that?” she asked. The girl shook her head.
“Some of us can. Some of us can do other things,” she answered, again keeping her gaze to the floor.
“You’re here because of your talents, right?” Fran asked. She shrugged.
“That’s what he says.” She pointed to the very last cell.
“Who’s that?” Shadic wondered out loud.
“He doesn’t have a name. He’s been here longest, and he tells us what will happen before it happens.
“Well, soon none of you will be here. Can you tell us which key opens these cells?” Shadic asked hopefully. The fox thought for a while.
“That one,” she answered. Again, another key was floating.
“Boy I wish I could do that,” Fran said as he took the key and opened the door. The girl’s tail twitched again, and she stood where she was, blinking several times.
“We get in trouble if we go out of our cells,” she murmured.
“This time no one’s gonna know but us, ok?” Shadic assured her. The fox hesitated, and then slowly walked over to Shadic.
“Are we going to get everyone out?” she asked.
“You bet we are,” Fran answered. He squatted down to the floor so he could look her in the eye. She took a small step backward, and he laughed. “You’re one jumpy youngster! What’s your name?”
“My mom used to call me Ashley before we got taken away.”
“Well, Ashley, do you know where your mom is now?”
“She’s downstairs with the rest of the grown up prisoners.”
“Those slime balls!” Shadic exclaimed, “They split families up, bring’em here, and don’t even have the decency to put them together?!”
“They’ve been doing that for a long time,” Fran told her as he stood up.
“That’s just sick,” Shadic growled.
“I know,” Fran agreed. “Now, we’re not going to get anywhere if we keep stalling like this.”
“You’re right,” she grinned, “Let’s do this!”
“Can we please free my little sister first?” Ashley begged.
“Lead the way,” Shadic said. Ashley ran down the hall to the first cell.
“She’s sleeping,” she told Fran and Shadic. Fran opened the lock with the key that she had told him to use.
“Better wake her up then,” he told her. Ashley sat on the end of the small bed inside the cell and gently shook the little lump under the sheet.
“Emerald, time to wake up,” Ashley said softly. Slowly, her sister woke. She sat up and yawned. She was very tiny, and her fur was emerald green, which was probably why she had been named Emerald.
“Ash’ey, why you wake me up?” Emerald asked. Judging by her size and speech, she was most likely about two or three years old.
“We have to go away now. Come on, get out of bed,” Ashley told her.
“I wanna stay here in my room.” Emerald patted her bed, “Room is nice. You go back to your room Ash’ey.”
“No, we have to go right now,” Ashley insisted. She took Emerald’s hand and tried to pull her up.
“No!” Emerald wailed. She jerked her hand free from Ashley’s grip and threw herself facedown on her bed. Ashley gave Shadic a pleading look.
“C’mon Emerald,” Shadic said as she knelt by her bed, “we’re gonna take you to see your mom.”
“I don’t know what mom is. I don’t know who you is. Get out of my room!” Emerald yelled into her pillow.
“She doesn’t even know what a mom is?” Shadic asked Ashley.
“We came here when Emerald was a baby. She doesn’t remember her,” Ashley said sadly.
“It’s past time she remembers her again,” Shadic declared. She bent down and picked the tiny fox up. Emerald began screaming and thrashing. “Calm down, I’m trying to help you! Ow!” Emerald had bitten Shadic with her small, but sharp teeth.
“Oh for heaven’s sake!” Fran sighed, “Give her here.” He took Emerald from Shadic and gently rocked her back and forth. She slowly started to relax. “There, there,” Fran said softly, “You have to be quiet, all right?” In reply, Emerald hiccupped.
“You’re good,” Shadic commented.
“That’s part of getting old. Here, you handle the keys.”
* * * *
In the next few minutes, most of the other cells had been unlocked. Soon, there was a small group of children of various ages following Fran and Shadic. Each individual had his or her own special power. There was only one more left to release; the one that Ashley had mentioned earlier. One of the older children had told them that he was the only human on the floor, and he had the most spectacular powers. He was known to be a loner, and disliked practically everyone.
“You should prepare for anything,” the child warned.
After all of these warnings, Shadic was expecting some sort of monster. But when the group finally came to the other end of the long hallway, all she saw was a rather thin looking boy. He was sitting cross-legged on the floor with his back facing towards them.
“Hey, are you awake in there?” Shadic asked, unsure whether or not he could be sleeping.
“What do you think, Shadic?” he answered in a low, bored sounding voice. A murmur of exciting passed among the children.
“He knew her name before she even said it!” they exclaimed.
“You wish to free me, correct?” the boy said.
“Yeah, and I’m guessing that you can read minds huh?” Shadic asked.
“No, fool. I can do more than that.”
“Like?” Shadic wanted to know what all the kids could do, just in case it came in handy.
“Let me out, and I’ll show you,” he said. She did so, and he stood to face them. “I can learn things about you that are so secret that even you may not know. I can make you see what you fear most. I could drive you insane without breaking a sweat. Do you still want to see for yourself?”
“Go ahead, can’t hurt,” Shadic said with a shrug.
“Actually, it can,” the boy said with a smirk. His golden eyes began to grow slightly brighter, and everything around him and Shadic began to dissolve into darkness.
“Whoa…” Shadic whispered as she looked around through the eerie, blue-tinted nothingness around her.
“Did you know that your greatest fears are going to come true?” the boy asked.
“Like what?” she wondered out loud.
“Like that,” he said simply. The boy’s eyes became another shade brighter, and he pointed to the right. A semi-transparent figure faded into existence where he pointed. Shadic was surprised to find a holographic image of herself.
“Wow, it looks just like me!” she said in awe.
“No duh Sherlock,” the boy said with unmistakable amusement creeping into his voice. Shadic walked towards the image and passed a hand through it. The hologram flickered once but remained the same. “Do you notice anything different between how you are now and your future self?”
“My future self? That’s me, in the future?” Shadic asked.
“Yes, it is. Can you see the difference or not?”
“I don’t know,” she answered after a pause, “something’s defiantly not the same, but I can’t put my finger on it…” she trailed off. The boy remained silent for a few moments.
“Your future self is a ruthless, uncaring monster. It’s quite easy to see it,” he said. Shadic stared at the image again, and found that he was right. The hologram was standing with a straight back, fists clenched, and eyes narrowed. It was like the hologram was another person entirely.
“How…what…huh?” Shadic said in confusion. The boy laughed.
“It’s coming. Think you’ll be ready?” he said with a smirk. His eyes returned to their original color, and the hologram and endless nothingness faded away. When the rest of the group was visible again, they were all staring at Shadic. She shook her head.
“Uh, I think we should keep moving,” she said shakily.
The children slowly followed her out the door and to the next section of captives. Here all the children’s parents were held. There weren’t too many cells here, so it only took a few minutes to open each door. The small hall was soon filled with families reunited after years of separation. Shadic wanted to get everyone out immediately, but decided that these people deserved to soak in the moment; at least for a little while.
“Hey,” Fran whispered to her, “Come here a minute.” He led her to a corner by the door away from everyone else. “What happened back there?”
“What?” she asked.
“With that kid!” You just zoned out or something; like you weren’t there.”
“Oh, that. You know, this is gonna sound weird, but I don’t think that I was there. Everything kinda disappeared. And that kid, I think he could change things in that place. He told me, that I was going to change,” Shadic explained awkwardly.
“I don’t know! I think he was trying to say that I was going to become the killing machine that GUN wanted in the first place!”
“How could that happen? That’s what you’re working so hard against. They can’t change your free will,” Fran said reassuringly. Shadic frowned.
“But what if they can?”
“Don’t ask ‘what if’s’,” Fran ordered, “See how happy you’ve made all these people?” he made a sweeping motion with his arm towards the mothers, fathers, and children; each family hugging and crying tears of pure joy. “A killing machine wouldn’t be able to do all this.”
“You worry too much. Look, I think someone wants to say thanks,” Fran said. Shadic looked over her shoulder and saw a tall female coming towards her. Beside her walked Ashley and Emerald.
“I can’t thank you enough for bringing my two baby girls back,” the woman said with tears shining in her eyes.
“No prob’,” Shadic said.
“There must be something I can do to repay you?” the woman persisted. She looked Shadic over carefully. “You’re injured,” she said while her eyes rested on the long cuts on Shadic’s cheek that she had received earlier. “I can heal it for you,” she offered. Without another word, she gently put a finger to Shadic’s cut and closed her eyes. Shadic felt the area grow warm. The woman took her finger away, and when Shadic ran a hand over where the jagged wounds used to be, she found that they were gone.
“Wow,” Shadic murmured, “Thank you.”
“No, thank you,” the woman said with a smile. Emerald waddled out from behind her and tugged on Fran’s hand. He crouched down to her.
“Is this a ‘mom’?” she asked in his ear. He laughed.
“Yes, that is a mom. I want you to go with her and be good, ok?”
“Can’t I come with you?” Emerald asked.
“No, you go with your mom,” Fran told her. Emerald let out a small whine, then turned back to her mother.
“I go with you, ‘cause you is a mom,” Emerald said.
“I promise to be a better mom than I have been,” the woman said through fresh tears. Instead of replying, Emerald put her hands over her ears.
“Loud noise,” she complained.
“I don’t hear anything, do you?” Shadic asked Fran. He shook his head.
“Emerald has very good hearing,” Ashley explained.
“What does it sound like?” Fran asked urgently.
“It go like this: beep, beep, beep. It hurting my ears.”
“Oh, no,” Fran said as his face grew pale.
“What is it?” Shadic asked.
“The alarm, they found us!” he answered in panic.
“What are they going to do?” Ashley’s mother asked in a trembling voice. As the word quickly spread throughout the hall, the happy conversations turned to ones of panic.
“Run,” Shadic said softly, as she was still in shock, “Run!” she repeated loudly. Everyone broke up and ran in different directions. Several people still followed Shadic and Fran, figuring that if they had brought them this far, they could take them all the way. “How could we have set off the alarm?” Shadic asked Fran as they ran, not taking notice where they were going.
“I don’t know!” he panted.
“Maybe someone snitched on us,” someone following them suggested.
“If that’s true, and I find out who did it, I swear I’ll-“Shadic began, but as they turned around a corner, she ran into someone and fell backwards. With a sinking feeling, she slowly looked up to see who she had collided with; she found herself staring into the eyes of Rain.
"You'll what?" he hissed. Shadic couldn't find the voice to answer back with. She simply sat frozen to the spot and her ears began to droop in anguish.
"I'm in trouble, aren't I?" she said in a whisper. Rain narrowed his eyes.
"You're going to have hell to pay." He grabbed her wrist firmly and began to drag her back down the hall. He turned towards Fran and the other wide-eyed escapees, which gave Shadic time to scramble miserably to her feet. "I don't give a damn if you pathetic creatures leave."
"Y-you're not going to stop us?" a woman asked. Rain turned and walked away, dragging Shadic behind him.
"Not my department," he answered. Shadic tried to pull her wrist free from Rain, but he simply tightened his grip painfully, so that her fingers began to go numb.
"Where are you taking me?" Shadic asked.
"Can't you guess? Are you really that stupid?" Rain said. Shadic whimpered softly. It looked like another meeting with Sam was in order, and somehow Shadic knew that she would be in more trouble than she had ever been in before.

Yeah. NEXT-CHP-TIME-LEFT-3-DAYS :mrgreen:
Next chapter will probably come sometime this week. But not in three days! Reason for that: I'm typin' at school & it's the weekend now, so there's two days. Then there's a stupid fieldtrip thingy on Monday! Hmmm, maybe Wednesday I can type for 80 minutes... If I can just talk my teacher into letting me do that instead of animation... It'll work! :D
02-28-2004, 09:11 AM
:D..hope so..or maybe she won't! *gasp* :shock: :mrgreen:
03-03-2004, 01:36 PM
Yay, I was allowed to type for 80 minutes today! :D
When Rain and Shadic got to Sam's office, Sam opened the door with a look of surprise on his tired face.
"It's the middle of the night for heaven's sake!" he cried.
"I think that we need to have a little talk," Rain said in a low growl. Sam slowly stepped aside to let them in, than sat heavily behind his desk.
"Sit," he told Shadic. She slowly sank into the chair across from him. Sam turned his gaze upon Rain, who remained standing. "This had better be important, or you'll be out of a job."
"Your little lab rat tried to get out of its cage again," Rain said. Sam sighed and ran his fingers through his hair in annoyance.
"This is becoming to be a bad habit with you," he said to Shadic.
"I think that you're the one with the bad hab-"
"Silence!" Sam hissed before she finished.
"As I was saying," Rain continued. Sam groaned in the prospect of more bad news. "She took about twenty or thirty others along with her," he finished. That simple sentence turned out to be the knife in the gut. Sam slammed his fist down on his desk and stood up.
"She what?!" he roared.
"Well you had little kids locked up for no reason! You can't expect me not to help them," Shadic explained.
"I told you to keep quiet!" Sam began to get red in the face out of anger. Shadic snorted, crossed her arms, and stared moodily at the floor.
"Do you really think that there's still a good excuse for keeping this thing around?" Rain asked Sam, "I think it would be smarter to get rid of this one and start the project over again."
"You know that we don't have the money or the resources to do that. How many times do I have to tell you?"
"I still think that she is too insubordinate to be of any use," Rain said stubbornly.
"Good for you. But it's my decision that counts, not yours," Sam reminded him. He spent a few minutes in silence, but couldn't think of a solution. "Do you have any useful suggestions?" he sighed. Rain shrugged.
"You always hate my ideas, remember?"
"But what would you do in my position?" Sam urged.
"Kill her," Rain answered simply.
"Besides that!" Sam groaned.
"Wipe her memory...then kill her."
"Is that all you can think about?!" Sam wailed.
"If it fixes a problem, why change it?" Rain said. Sam suddenly got a look in his eyes as if he had just thought of something.
"That's it!" he exclaimed.
"You're agreeing with me?" Rain asked with a look of surprise.
"Of course not, but you did give me the idea that we needed. To fix the problem," Sam shot a look at Shadic, "we need to change it."
"That's not what I said at all!" Rain explained. "We already tried to change her."
"She's not the problem. It's what she thinks that's the problem," Sam said. When Rain still didn't seem to be following him, he added, "She won't do as we say, because it's not what she wants to do. If we can make her think that she wants to do whatever we say, there won't be a problem."
"Hmph, like that'll work," Shadic snorted. An angry look from both Sam and Rain later and she decided not to push her luck any further.
"So you don't want to erase her memory," Rain said slowly as he thought it over, "you just want to alter it?"
"Exactly. But this would be the first time that we've thought of this, let alone tried it."
"Hey now!" Shadic abandoned the plan of lying low and stood up angerly, "You've got no right to mess around with how I think!"
"Actually, I have the right to do whatever I like to you," Sam said.
"Just try it. Chaos Con-"
Before Shadic could complete Chaos Control, however, Rain tackled her to the ground, which knocked the wind out of her.
"Don't you know how rude it is just to try and leave like that?" he said as he pinned her to the floor by the arms. Sam sighed in relief.
"Get off'a me!" Shadic yelled as soon as she could breathe again.
"This is something else we should add to our to-do list," Rain said, "Stop Chaos Control."
"We can do that, temporally," Sam replied. A sinking feeling came over Shadic. She had expected to be in a lot of trouble, but this was madness! No more Chaos Control, and possibly no more free will? That little kid was right, they were going to make her a killing machine yet.

THE COMING OF CHANGE
Minutes later, Rain was dragging Shadic to the research lab. Shadic was struggling against him for all she was worth, but he still managed to keep her from running away. She was terrified, and it was showing.
It took nearly ten minutes to get to the lab. Everything inside was a blinding white, and almost everything was made of metal. Several men and women in long white lab coats turned their heads towards Shadic and Rain, but none of them looked like they knew what was going on. Behind them, the door opened again, and Sam entered with a sick smile on his face. In one hand, he held a small glass bottle containing a clear, watery substance, and in the other a syringe.
“Say bye-bye to Chaos Control,” he said as he filled the syringe. Shadic shook her head and opened her mouth as if to speak, but no sound escaped. She hated needles, and Chaos Control was a very valuable asset.
She took a step back, but Rain was in the way, which stopped her from going any further. Sam smirked. “Still afraid of having something stuck into your skin I see,” he said as he held up the syringe. Without anywhere to run, Shadic acted on impulse and slapped it out of his hand. It landed on the floor with a loud clatter and skidded several feet away. With Sam now chasing after it and Rain distracted, Shadic had time to find a place to hide. She quickly jumped up onto one of the desks, sending papers and folders askew in the process, and scanned the room. There was nowhere to hide! Everything was out in the open. She glanced over her shoulder and saw Sam just as he closed his hand around the syringe. Shadic had hoped that it would have shattered after hitting the floor; why did everything have to be made of plastic now a days? She swept her eyes over the room desperately. She jumped again and her fingers grasped the edge of a tall glass cylinder, so she clambered on top of it.
“What are you doing? Get down here!” Rain ordered. Shadic shook her head furiously. “Fine! I’ll get you down myself,” he said in a growl. He reached for the whip that hung from his belt. Shadic frowned; she had never seen one of those used before and didn’t know what to expect.
Rain stretched his arm out behind him then quickly snapped it forward again. The whip sailed away from him and wrapped itself tightly around Shadic’s arm. She yelped in surprise as he sharply pulled the other end suddenly. The force of it nearly sent her careening to the floor, but luckily her free hand caught the edge of the cylinder again. Rain pulled back with every ounce of strength he had, but Shadic didn’t think that she would have been able to loosen her grip even if she tried. “Hey, I’m not standing here for my health,” Rain grunted to Sam.
“Don’t :):):):) an attitude with me,” he warned him. He took a hold of Shadic’s arm, which was being pulled down and put the sharp point of the syringe in it. Shadic could feel the watery substance traveling from the needle to her arm, and then throughout her entire body. It felt as though fire was speeding through her veins.
Rain dropped the whip and it fell limp; immediately Shadic scrambled out of reach again. She clutched her arm and hissed in pain.
“Having that Emerald in you neutralized must burn a little huh?” Rain said.
“Well now that that’s taken care of, we won’t have to worry about you running off for awhile,” Sam said happily. He walked towards a desk, “But just in case…” he pressed one of the numerous buttons that was on it. The top of the cylinder that was supporting Shadic’s weight suddenly vanished, and she dropped into the glass prison. “You ought to feel right at home in there. After all, you were created right there in that same tank.”
“You can’t do this to me! You just can’t!” Shadic said at last. Sam laughed.
“News flash, I’ve already started,” he said. Shadic pounded on the glass.
“Let me out!” she screamed. Sam simply laughed again and turned away.
“Sir, may I ask what’s going on?” one of the men in the lab coats asked.
“You have one week to make that thing an obedient dog,” he explained as he pointed to Shadic.
“Why? Did something go wrong?” another man asked.
“Where were you just now? Not paying attention?” Rain said back.
“You can’t make a rebel into a slave,” stated a woman, “People have been trying to do that for centuries, and it has never worked.”
“Well, you’d better find a way, unless you’d rather be jobless,” Sam said in a warning tone.
“If that thing doesn’t obey every command I give it by the end of this week, you’re all fired!” Sam said loudly before leaving without another word.
“Time’s running out, better enjoy it while you can,” Rain said in an undertone to Shadic. He smirked in satisfaction as he too disappeared out the door.
Shadic pressed her face against the glass; her breath fogging it every time she exhaled. The words of the little boy repeated over and over again in her mind: Did you know that your greatest fears are going to come true?
* * * * *
Slowly, the men and women sat down to begin their work. As things settled down, the room became deadly silent. The only sounds were the gentle hum of machinery, the soft hiss of the pipes hidden in the walls, and the rhythmic clicking of many keyboards.
Shadic slid to the floor of her new glass prison, and drew her legs to her chest. She looked at the foreign environment around her; every bit of it seemed very unreal.
Her eyes came to rest upon the computer monitor nearest her. It looked nothing like Tails’ computer back home. His had had icons, colors, images, and even a sound effect here and there. This one had none of that. All that this computer had to offer was a black screen, endless white text, and complicated graphs and charts. Shadic tried to make some sense of the seemingly never-ending string of numbers, letters, and images, but failed. It was like programming code, and she didn’t understand it.
Then with a pang of realization, Shadic knew that she was the program that came from that very code. Could that line of jumbled text be responsible for her silver fur? Then the next line had to be for the blue markings that blended so perfectly against the silver. And the one following that? What about the hundreds upon thousands of lines that fell behind it? What did it all mean?
Shadic closed her eyes and buried her head in her arms. One week left, just one. Then the rules of the game would be different. And she would be Shadic no longer.
03-10-2004, 02:28 PM
This is good! i can't wait till you make Shadic a bad girl! hahaha i don't know why but i always like when a good guy turns bad :evil: :twisted:
03-10-2004, 05:31 PM
03-10-2004, 05:59 PM
Yay, Shadic's gonna be evil!
Shadic: Hey! *skims through script* That's not in here!!!
Umm, sure it is! *takes script & scribbles, "Shadic turns evil"* See, it's right there!
Dun worry, something else might happen, who really knows!
Shadic: *mutters under breath* Well when you keep changing the script like that...
What was that?!
Shadic: Nothing! :mrgreen:
03-10-2004, 06:04 PM
Demon Killar: *zooms very fast over everyone and nearly collides with SHadic, making her spines ruffle*
03-11-2004, 06:31 PM
Demon had sugar, didn't he?
03-11-2004, 06:47 PM
He tried the Hawaiian kind.
Demon K: *now crashes into Shadic*
03-11-2004, 06:56 PM
I hereby ban you from sugar, Demon boy.
03-11-2004, 07:01 PM

Now my grade for this FF.
03-13-2004, 06:25 PM
*Shadic cannot answer at this moment, because she is currently about as conscious as a rock. Please wait a few hours, and she may respond. Have a nice day.*
03-13-2004, 06:26 PM
*sigh* I didn't wanna do this. *enters her dream* Hi.
03-13-2004, 06:30 PM
Hi! Hey, I'm dreaming about people again, weird...usually I dream about things that wouldn't even make sense to a science-fiction writer.
03-13-2004, 06:34 PM
Actually, I entered your dream. *sees Sam float around* *eyes go in a close squint of hate* can I shoot him? Just once?
03-13-2004, 06:36 PM
By all means, knock yourself out! Uh, you know what I mean.
03-13-2004, 06:39 PM
*loads up Demon sniper rifle with Killing darts* my demon sniper is the best in Hell. That's of course, what they said in the shootin contest. *aims*
03-13-2004, 06:43 PM
Bet that thing costed a purdy penny or two.
*flips upside-down just for the heck of it*
Hey, from this angle he looks really fat... :lol:

*PEEAW* got him! *Sam bleeds*
03-13-2004, 06:51 PM
*the whole world cheers*
Yay! *flips rightside-up again*
Now why doesn't he look fat this way? How's he DO that?!
03-13-2004, 06:53 PM
You're lookin at one of those funny mirrors. *PEEAW PEAW PEAW PEAW* got him! *shoots upward and dart goes up and disappears and ends up coming up from the ground* I guess it's one of those things..
03-13-2004, 06:59 PM
Hmmm, that would explain sooo much... Any other people floatin' around that you wanna make target practice?
03-13-2004, 07:09 PM
Let's see..*shoots sam's apprentice*
03-13-2004, 07:10 PM
Good choice, that was an annoying little jerk.
03-13-2004, 07:19 PM
*shoots for other apprentice but almost hits Shadic*
03-13-2004, 07:26 PM
:shock: Your aim is kinda getting off-target.
03-13-2004, 07:30 PM
I wonder why..*turns around to see a poison dart sticking in him* dammit. eh. *pulls it out* These things just make me woozy.. whoa....wooziness kickin in...Oy...*turns around to see sam grinning* You wouldn't be grinning if I pulled out this, now would you? *pulls out Demon machine gun*
03-13-2004, 07:33 PM
He's a little *beeeeep* ain't he? Uh, you ok? Should I dream up a medic or somethin'?
03-13-2004, 07:36 PM
*THUD* I think my body fell on yours..*very distant beep* that's my bomb pad.......brace yourself. You are bout to awake. *goes out of dream and into body* BRACE YOURSELF! *BOOOOOOOOOM* *pokes head out of rubble and gets shadic out as she starts to wake up*
03-13-2004, 07:41 PM
*yawns* That's one heck of an alarm clock...
03-13-2004, 07:48 PM
Yep it is. it's a painful one that makes sure you wake up.
03-13-2004, 07:49 PM
You mean the loud annoying beeping things weren't enough?!
03-13-2004, 07:53 PM
Yeah. The beeping makes me automatically (I got used to it so much) brace myself in my sleep.
03-13-2004, 07:58 PM
I always wake up an hour before it goes off. No need for an exploding one here!
03-13-2004, 08:00 PM
Xplodes when I don't need it to, too. *beep* like now. *BADOOOM*
03-13-2004, 08:01 PM
Ah, I think it just might be broken.
03-13-2004, 08:08 PM
Actually, I know the source. I dont' mind, cuz i'm used to explosions. Little demons inside the bomb pads. *beep* *BADOOM*
03-13-2004, 08:11 PM
Somehow I don't think they like you very much!
*notices that end of one quill is on fire*
*blows it out*
03-13-2004, 08:15 PM
Yep. but some favor me. *makes a whirlwind*
03-13-2004, 08:17 PM
Is it done exploding now?
03-13-2004, 08:19 PM
For now. *jumps in whirlwind and turns it into giant spinning axe again* remember this? *jumps on*
03-13-2004, 08:22 PM
Yeah...made me puke last time...
03-13-2004, 08:24 PM
Hey, get on! *pulls her on and we fly up again* Now it's better. If you feel sick..*a bed with a glass encasing pops out* this blocks out all dizziness and spinning. and it's all glass. the bed is soft, but glass. very clear. and if you need to..*throws her a walkie-talkie* that's what'll let the talking keep on..
03-13-2004, 08:27 PM
Don't let me puke, don't let me puke, don't let me puke... Oh well, taking chances doesn't always hurt.
03-13-2004, 08:32 PM
Need to get in the encasing? We're approaching higher altitude now!
03-13-2004, 08:34 PM
Nah...don't think so. Uh, how high is it when there's no oxygen again?
03-13-2004, 08:37 PM
Right bout now. *are in space* look at the earth..huh? Oh yeah, I forgot you guys can't breathe. *Sonic turning pale* *fumbles with breather* come on..get out..
03-13-2004, 08:39 PM
Here's where my practice with holding my breath comes in handy eh?
03-13-2004, 08:41 PM
Yep. You should be able to hold for hours at a time since the choking incident. *gives her the breather* *sees Pluto pass by* man we're going faster than I thought..
03-13-2004, 08:47 PM
I've been in space before, but not this far! Shouldn't we be popsicles by now too?
03-13-2004, 08:50 PM
No. Well um, you are. I just adapted. You wanna get in the encasing? got heat vents in there. Handy enough to adapt it into your body like Chaos. it's like a Shadic shaped bubble around your body!
03-13-2004, 08:52 PM
Yay, warmth goooooooood. ^_^
03-13-2004, 08:54 PM

Hmmm, is it me, or are my chapters getting shorter? :shock:
Night slowly changed to morning. But that was the only thing that had changed. Shadic hadn’t moved an inch last night, and no one else in the lab had moved either. The door swung open suddenly. Shadic’s ears flicked automatically and stood alert as the sound, but she didn’t bother to move any more than that. She was worn out, just as she had expected.
“Status report?” asked the voice of Sam.
“I think we can try to pull this off, but it’s risky,” answered one of the men.
“How long will it take?”
“Our part won’t take very long…maybe just a few days. But we’ll have to wait before anything takes affect.”
“How long?” Sam repeated.
“I don’t know, Sir, it depends. We’ve never done this before. We’ll just have to sit back and cross our fingers,” the man answered somewhat nervously.
“And she’ll have to be in a neutral state,” a woman added, “She cannot be conscious nor can she be asleep.”
“Frozen,” Sam concluded. Shadic lifted her head from her arms an inch or two. Frozen? Shadow had warned her about that…
“Some people like to call it that, but the subject is not truly frozen. She will appear to be in the deepest form of sleep, but will not be asleep at all. It is a very strange technology indeed.”
“Yes, I know. Well, what are you all sitting around for? You only have six more days!”
“Yes, Sir,” everyone replied in one voice as they went back to work. Sam slowly walked to the large glass cylinder that held Shadic, chuckling to himself as he went.
“Just think, in a few days time you won’t have to be guarded or punished any more. And that’s a promise,” he said.
“You’re crazy,” Shadic hissed.
“We’ll see who’s crazy. Until then, sweet dreams. Then again, you may not be able to dream like us natural born beings. I wouldn’t know.”
A thick white fog seeped into the cylinder as he spoke. It obscured Shadic’s vision until all she saw was whiteness. A chilling coldness came along with the mysterious fog, and soon Shadic saw or felt nothing more.
Unbeknownst to her, a green liquid began to fill the small prison where she now floated limply, seemingly unconscious.
“It’s almost like day one all over again, isn’t it?” Sam whispered softly to himself.
* * * * *
Four days later, a vicious thunderstorm brewed. No one in the large lab had anything to do, and the sound of the rain against the metal roof made many wish for a nap. One man finally dozed off, and his head rested upon his keyboard. The angry buzzing of the computer awakened him, signaling that too many buttons were being pressed at once. Some stared at Shadic as she floated soundlessly in the green liquid, wishing that she would soon wake again so that they could go home.
Two days ago, the scientists had done all that they could to alter Shadic’s free will. Whether or not her body would accept the change was the question.
Outside, the thunder crashed loudly. The lights dimmed momentarily. Sam, who had been spending many hours in the lab lately, glanced up at the lights.
“What will happen if the power goes out?” he asked.
“The generator will kick in,” the man who fell asleep answered groggily.
“I mean what will happen to her?” Sam asked urgently. The lights dimmed again, and just barely managed to come back on.
“We haven’t thought of that…” a woman said slowly. She gasped. “The generator won’t have enough power to run life support. There’d be nothing to keep her alive; she’ll drown!” she exclaimed.
The next crash of thunder brought darkness to the room. The machinery’s hum slowed then died. A moment later the emergency lights whirled to life. A few small monitors also lit up because they only needed a small amount of energy to run.
“Damn it!” Sam yelled as he brought his fist down on the desk.
“Vital sign dropping rapidly, Sir!” someone said.
“Open the tank manually!” Sam ordered, “Break it if you have to, just get her out!”
A man pried the metal casing from the base of the tank and began working on the wires that were now revealed. Sam bit his lip as he watched the status bars shrink past the warning line. Then, miraculously, the bars slowed, and stopped dropping. They came to hover just before the critical line.
“What?” Sam said in shook, “H-how is that possible?”
“It’s…not,” the woman said in disbelief. She took a sharp breath. “Look!” She pointed at Shadic.
Shadic’s body was surrounded by a faint swirling aura. Not nearly as bright or colorful as it normally was when used as an attack, but still clearly visible. A crack appeared in the glass; then another. Without any other warning, the tank shattered, covering everyone nearby with broken glass. The green liquid poured onto the floor and spread throughout the room. Shadic’s body lay limp as a rag doll on the base of the now ruined tank.
“What just happened?” the man who had been trying to open the tank manually asked in surprise. Sam shook his head.
“I have no idea,” he said slowly.
“Is she dead?” the woman asked in a quivering voice.
“I don’t think so. Looks like she’s breathing,” the man answered. He was closet to Shadic, and he thought that he could see her chest moving slightly. Everyone sighed in relief.
“Someone take her to the medic,” Sam ordered, “We’ll have to keep an eye on her there until she awakens again.”

03-25-2004, 03:43 PM
Well yesterday I got my first bad review on this f/f on fanfiction.net, & the person said that I need more action in it. Solution: merge chapters! Wait...that didn't make any sense.... Oh well!
03-25-2004, 03:46 PM

03-25-2004, 06:10 PM
Hmmm, most things taste like chicken... Interesting...
03-25-2004, 06:15 PM
Shadic: *gets a piece and eats it, than keels over holding her stomach*
03-25-2004, 06:18 PM
& this is why they invented that pink upset stomach medicine that I can't spell! Though barf-bags work well too.
03-25-2004, 06:30 PM
You mean that Tums stuff. *shoves in a barrel load and this time Shadic does the same thing* Plan B. *hands her a large barf bag*
03-25-2004, 07:04 PM
Nah, that stuff that starts with a "p". Ever notice that plan B is always better than plan A? *reads the back of the Tums bottle* Oh, & you used a few too many I think. Ah, who reads the directions first anyways?
03-25-2004, 07:09 PM
Prevacid? Let's see...*reads the back of Tums* One pill per hour. I used 50000.
03-25-2004, 07:14 PM
Nope, Pepdobismo or something like that. Uh, sound it out... Umm, yeah, I think you used a few too many there.
I g2g. Stupid PSSA's continue tomorrow, & I'm already late to bed. Stupid school...

03-28-2004, 05:06 PM
03-28-2004, 05:28 PM
hey, killar, i see you've replied on my story, but when are you going to actually grade it? but can you wait to grade it until or after friday, which is when it actually gets good?
03-29-2004, 06:31 PM
Man, I wish I got grades like this in school! :mrgreen:
:shock: Not that I have bad grades... Uh...never mind.
Here's a question. What do you guys think the odds are for this fanfic getting published? I have the local bookstore looking for a reasonable publisher for me.
03-29-2004, 06:47 PM
well, i'd say not that hard, but it will get harder trying to receive the rights and all that cr@p from sega. but...
03-29-2004, 06:48 PM
HOLY CR@P! You're gettin this thing published! That's awesome! Oh yeah, Takerutakaishi's story....Lemme check...
03-29-2004, 06:49 PM
hey, wait a minute... i forgot to ask the number one asked question in all fanfics.
when is the next chapter coming out?
03-29-2004, 06:51 PM
Hey, bump up your ff..
03-29-2004, 07:06 PM
Next chapter coming whenever I finish writing this one. I'll try not to take long. With all the testing at school now-a-days we don't have much homework, & spring break is next week, so I should have loads of free-time coming up!
I don't think that I'll get too much trouble from SEGA about getting permission & all. They kinda owe me one for helping them advertise. :mrgreen: That's gotta be worth something!
03-29-2004, 07:08 PM
OH YEAH! I had spring break last week...:cry:....I started these tests and stuff just today and my brother's taking a..um...SAT or something...
03-29-2004, 07:13 PM
Ooh, SAT are three of the most evil letters when it comes to high school. You're lucky, you get a break first, then tests! I haven't had a day off of school since January. Er, not counting weekends anyway.
03-29-2004, 07:33 PM
how did you help them advertise?
my break doesn't start till next week, and this week i have minimum day schedule, so i get out like an hour and 15 minutes before i usually do.
my stupid state renamed the sat CAT.
you better work on that fanfic, or else *shakes fist*. i wanna know what happens! hey, do you know what happened to Hedgehog Island?
03-29-2004, 07:40 PM
For Project Night I chose SEGA as my project. Since just about everyone in town comes to Project Night & each station gets a colum in the newspaper, they should get some publicity. That's probably why they agreed to send me a package of stuff, which I'm still waiting for...
I have half-days next week, then break starts Friday. My schedule's gonna be more messed up than it already is! Why did your state rename the SAT's?
I'm gonna write some of the chapter before bed tonight. :shock: DON'T HURT ME! *cough* In other news, Iboardplus went down, & they took all of their message boards with them... :evil:
03-29-2004, 08:04 PM
do you know what they are sending? and if they didn't they doi owe you one. how did you pull that stunt off of having sega as your project?
i don't know, because they're stupid and they want to make it confusing.
stupid iboard... always being stupid and going out of business... you better be writing it...
03-30-2004, 02:30 PM
I'm not sure what they're sending, they just told me that they'd send as much as they could, whatever that means. I just sent a letter to Sega of America, Europe, & Japan, a few weeks later I got an E-mail from Sega of America, then they called me & we talked awhile. They sounded excited when I said that it was a big event that a lot of people come to.
I wrote about a full page today, so you can't bite my head off. :mrgreen:
03-30-2004, 03:43 PM
stupid non-biting-peoples-heads-off abilities...
03-31-2004, 07:18 PM
Chp M: NEED NEXT CHP! RROROAOORAORR! *hits takerutakaishi* SORRY. NEXT CHAP! ROROORORAOOOAR! ROOAR- *rocks hit Chp's head* OW.

D Jaws: How come we dont' get credit?
D Nightmare: Yeah it's unfair!
Me: Sometimes I regret having people inside me...Ok ok you were all created from me.
Everyone else: *murmur contentedly and go*
03-31-2004, 07:38 PM
Sheesh, & I thought that hearing voices inside your head was bad.
03-31-2004, 07:44 PM
you better have a new chapter by saturday... :twisted:
03-31-2004, 07:54 PM
Yeah...I guess....NEXT CAHPAPAPAPP! HAHAHHAAHAH!
04-01-2004, 02:24 PM
Don't get your hopes up. Um, & just so you know, if you hurt me I won't be able to finish writing. Just somethin' to remember when you're all angry at me!
04-01-2004, 02:40 PM
hmm... good point. but if i hurt you, i will take out your brain, examine it, and find the answers to all the questions, organized style.
04-01-2004, 03:48 PM
Good luck trying to figure out all the stuff in my head. It's so confusing, even I don't understand it! Might leave you scarred for life too.
04-01-2004, 06:00 PM
04-02-2004, 06:34 PM
Ooh, you guys are soooo lucky! I actually had enough time to finish the chapter today! Just barely though. The school bell rang as soon as it finished saving.
COMPLETION OF CHANGE
How many days have passed since the thunderstorm? It was a question that couldn’t be answered. Some guessed that it has been about five days; but it felt more like an eternity.
Slowly, Shadic began to come out of her dark artificial slumber. She couldn’t move at all; it was like she was completely paralyzed. Gradually, thoughts became clearer.
What happened? Where am I? Who am I? she wondered silently.
Feeling began to reintroduce itself to Shadic’s body, and with it came a throbbing headache. She was laying on something soft and warm. A bed? She willed her eyes to open halfway; the first sign of movement that she had shown in days. A blinding white light hung above her. As she blinked several times, her vision became less fuzzy. She turned her head to the side because the light was hurting her eyes and making her headache worse. Here she saw a number of strange machines. One of which was emitting a constant beeping noise. She flattened her ears to try and hopefully block out the annoying sound. It stirred something in Shadic mind. She wasn’t quite sure why, but she hated that beeping. It sounded so familiar…
She raised a hand to her head and gritted her teeth. What had happened to make it hurt so badly? A sharp pain ran through her arm as she moved it. Shadic found that a needle was the cause of the discomfort. A long, thin tube ran from the needle to an elevated bad half-filled with a clear watery liquid. She reached to pull the needle from her skin, but another hand stopped her from doing so.
“I’d like to keep you on that IV for awhile longer,” a man said. Shadic looked up at him and squinted as the bright light hit her eyes again.
“Who are you?” she mumbled.
“Don’t you remember me?” the man said with a startled look, “The ol’ doc who you ran away from way back when?”
“There’s a good chance that she won’t remember old faces,” another male’s voice said. He stood next to the doctor and looked down on Shadic. “What’s my name?” he asked her. She remained silent for a time while the question bounced around in her throbbing head.
“Samuel?” she finally said.
“Good,” Sam said with a nod.
“Sheesh, you guys must have really scrambled her brains to make her forget me!” the doctor laughed, “I thought she’d never forgive me for that little accident with the whole shot thing.”
“If it wasn’t for that power-outage, this probably wouldn’t have happened. We think that certain parts of her memory were shut out. They might come back eventually.”
“Ah, she must have nothing more than a case of amnesia,” the doctor said with a nod. The door could be heard opening; he and Sam turned to see Rain. He stood in the doorway, leaning against the frame with his arms crossed.
“So, is the lab rat going to live?” he asked.
“Yeah, give her a few days and she might try to run away again.”
“If all went well, that won’t be true,” Sam said, “So how did you know that she was awake already, Rain?” he asked. Rain closed his eyes and his shoulders shook slightly as if he were laughing quietly to himself.
“My room is only next door. In between all the noises my kids make I can usually hear what’s going on in here. And since I just grounded Eddie again for tying my daughter to the table leg, it should be quiet for awhile.”
“Heh, sounds like your son’ll make a good battle trainer! Just like his old dad,” the doctor said with a laugh.
“That’s what I’m afraid of,” Rain sighed, “At least then he will be your problem.”
“I’ve already got one problem. I don’t really need another,” Sam said as he looked back down at Shadic. She was too busy fiddling with the needle in her arm to notice.
“Hey, I told you to leave that alone,” the doctor scolded. He pulled her hand away from the IV. In return, Shadic sat up and took hold of his arm, then twisted it the wrong way. “Ow! That’s not supposed to bend that way!” he exclaimed as tears of pain formed on his eyes.
“Let him go, Shadic,” Sam commanded.
A wave of pain seared through Shadic’s head at that moment. She didn’t know whether or not she should do what he said. One voice said to do as told; the other said to ignore him. The two voiced seemed to be arguing, and it was very confusing. However, the one that said to listen seemed to be stronger than the other, so she finally let go.
“That’s a first, she actually listened!” Rain said in mild surprise.
“It was a step in the right direction all right,” Sam said, “But she hesitated. There’s obviously more work to be done.”
“Yeah, get her to let go faster next time,” the doctor said as he rubbed his arm.
“She just needs some practice,” Rain said, “I expect her to report back to her training sessions tomorrow morning. I’ll give her all the practice she’ll need,” he said with a smirk.
“Isn’t that a little soon?” the doctor asked.
“She’s designed to be an exceptionally fast healer,” Sam assured him, “Besides, we don’t want her to get out of practice, now do we?”
“I guess not… But sheesh, give the girl some time to gather her thoughts.”
“That’s exactly what we don’t want,” Rain said. A momentary silence fell among them.
“Did I miss something?” Shadic asked. All three of them stared at her like they had forgotten that she was actually still sitting there.
“All that you need to worry about is that you carry out my orders without question and keep out of trouble. There’s nothing else you need to be informed about,” Sam told her. He chose his words very carefully. The less she knew right now, the better.
“It just doesn’t feel right…” Shadic said quietly. No one else spoke for a while, and the beeping instrument became to annoy Shadic again. She had almost forgotten about it while everyone was talking and was instead listening to what they had to say. Now she flattened her ears again. Finally, Rain broke the silence.
“Well, if no one has any objections, I’ll be going,” Rain said, “It isn’t often that I don’t have to spend a day working. “As he spoke, loud crashes and yells came from the other side of the wall.
“Daddy!” a girl’s voice yelled, “Eddie’s being bad again!”
Rain groaned. “And this is exactly why I never take vacations,” he said as he left.
“I don’t know who I feel more sorry for, Rain or his kids,” the doctor said with a chuckle.
“I’d put my vote on the kids,” Sam said, “And I need to have a private word with you,” he added in a whisper.
“Alright,” the doctor said after he hid a look of curious suspicion. “You lay back down,” he told Shadic, “And I don’t want to catch you playing with that IV again, got it?”
“Listen to him,” Sam told her. Only then did she consider it and nod in agreement. Then he led the doctor to the far side of the room; well out of Shadic’s hearing range.
“What’s up?” the doctor asked.
“I want you to take her back to her old living quarters A.S.A.P. And make absolutely sure that you lock her in,” Sam said in an urgent whisper, “Lock the window too. And if she still has her card-key laying around somewhere, take it.”
“What for?” the doctor laughed, “From what I understand, Shadie’s running away days are numbered.”
“Hey, everyone needs to be called a stupid kiddy name at least once in their life.” He explained. Sam gave him a very strange look. “Ah, right. Won’t happen again, Sir.”
“I’d prefer it didn’t,” Sam agreed, “Now back to the point.”
“Ok, why do you want her on lock-down?”
“My head scientist claims that this experiment is going to take full effect in a few hours. And when it does, thinks are likely to get ugly.”
“Full effect?” the doctor repeated. “You mean you expect her to change even more?”
“Theoretically. If what they think is true, she is going to have some major personality conflicts. And the results may be dangerous. Best to just leave her alone, so no one else gets hurt.”
“What would be so dangerous about her?”
“You know what she’s capable of.” Sam sighed. “And in a few hours she won’t be afraid to hold back any longer.”
“You’re not kidding, are you?” the doctor asked seriously. Sam shook his head.
“Just make sure that no one’s around her. Or else we may be spending a couple thousand in funeral costs alone.” He turned back to look at Shadic. She was rubbing her head absentmindedly. The doctor exhaled shakily.
“Thanks a bunch for the no pressure assignment,” he said sarcastically.
“Are you afraid?” Sam asked curiously.
“I wouldn’t say that, exactly. But having to watch over someone who’s emotionally unstable and just as deadly kinda makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.”
“You should be terrified,” Sam said in a surprisingly calm voice. He smirked to himself as the doctor paled. “I’ll see you tomorrow. Maybe.”
“Uh, o-ok,” the doctor stuttered as he watched his boss retreat, pass momentarily as he passed Shadic, then walk out the door. The doctor sat down behind his desk and put his head in his hands. “I’m already getting too old for this job.”
* * * * *
About forty-five minutes to an hour later the doctor finally came back to check on Shadic. He felt overwhelming relief when he saw that the IV was done. Now I can get her away from everyone, he thought. Not to mention me.
“How’re you feeling?” he asked with a bright smile.
“Like I was hit by a truck,” Shadic answered bluntly.
“Well, I’ll have you know that I wasn’t driving,” he said. Shadic gave him a blank look.
“It’s a joke, you know, like ‘ha-ha’.”
Shadic tried to figure out what he meant, and got nowhere. The doctor sighed.
“Never mind. Lets get rid of that needle, sound good to you?” he asked. Shadic nodded. He removed to tape that covered the needle. It was already partly off from when Shadic had tried to remove it herself. She flinched slightly. “Oops, did I catch some hair?” he asked. Shadic took the tape from him. Bits of silver clung to it.
“Yeah, I’d say so!” She balled up the piece of tape and dropped it on the floor, then took the needle out herself. She swung her legs over the side of the bed an sat there with her eyes tightly shut.
“Well, maybe a good night’s sleep’ll help. C’mon, I’ll take you back to your room.” He took Shadic’s arm and helped her up. She irritability pulled her arm away.
“I don’t need your help,” she said. She let herself out the door, and the doctor followed. Shadic looked up and down the hall, but couldn’t decide which way to go.
“That way,” the doctor whispered in her ear as he pointed to the right.
“I knew that,” she muttered and began following him instead.
“Here we are.” The doctor opened one of the doors and they both went in. He tried to turn on the light, but it wouldn’t come on. “Ok, so the lights dead.”
“This is my room?” Shadic asked.
“It’s not that bad,” the doctor told her. After which he sneezed loudly. “Alright, so it needs a little work.”
“I don’t remember ever having a room,” Shadic said with a hint of awe. As she was looking around the small room, the doctor made sure that the window was tightly fastened. He stepped on a small plastic, bent down to pick it up, and then pocked it. Now that that’s done, it’s time to leave, he thought gratefully.
“Well, you get some sleep. I expect that someone’ll come to get you in the morning,” he edged towards the door while he spoke. When Shadic didn’t make any reply, he left. The door clicked after it was shut. Curiously, Shadic tried to open it again.
“Huh, that jerk locked me in!” she muttered when the door wouldn’t open. She kicked the door angrily then plopped onto the bed. She had no reason to be angry, but she was. She put the pillow over her head and lay there on her stomach. Maybe she could think of some reason for the unexplainable fury later.
* * * * *
As the room began to darken, Shadic could no longer think. She was now angry as ever, but her headache had gone to a new level, and it prevented her from doing anything else. She had moved to a sitting position on the floor, and was gently rocking back and forth while her head rested on her knees. She watched herself in the mirror across the room.
“Something’s wrong,” Shadic admitted to her reflection, “Somehow I think I’ve changed. This isn’t who I am.”
Of course this is who you are.
Shadic jumped at the unspoken voice.
“I think I’m going nuts,” she said fearfully.
No, you’re not crazy.
“Who are you?” Shadic demanded.
The new you.
Shadic stood and looked around the room for any vents or holes where someone could be speaking. Nothing was found. “What do you mean ‘the new me’?”
You know exactly what I mean. Look in the mirror if you want to see who I am.
So she stood before the mirror, but she saw only herself. She narrowed her eyes. “Stop playing games.
Who’s playing? Don’t you believe me? You ought to, because we’re the same person.
Shadic’s eyes began to darken, and her hands clenched into fists. “Stop it,” she said in a growl.
Stop it? Stop what? I’m doing nothing. You, on the other hand, are doing everything.
The bright aura around Shadic’s body was becoming bright enough to light the entire room. “Shut up,” she said in a voice that matched her anger.
You wanted to know who I was. Now you can truly see.
“I told you to shut up!” Shadic yelled. She crossed her arms over each other, and as she quickly brought them down again, the mirror shattered. “Whoever you used to be, you’re gone now.”

04-05-2004, 05:23 PM
I think that's one of the best pictures I've drawn. Wow, practice does help! Who would'a guessed? I got a pic of Shadic and Soko too, but it kinda hints at the end of the f/f. If you guys want a clue to the conclusion I can show ya.
04-05-2004, 05:29 PM
the sound of me saying no is overwhelming our very souls.
sorry, but i don't want to spoil the ending.

04-05-2004, 05:31 PM

Nada say nothing to takerutakaishi, Killar, he no want the end to be spoiled. And, uh, ya might wanna get an umbrella if it's raining boulders.
04-05-2004, 05:57 PM
WHoa! AWESOME! Nice catchy writing too. *sees boulder about to fall, and manages to levitate it back up* *loud faraway thud*
Angel: *loud but faraway* OW!
04-05-2004, 06:00 PM
Aw now that wasn't nice. If you're gonna send boulders at people, use a bigger boulder! :twisted:
04-05-2004, 06:04 PM

04-05-2004, 06:28 PM
Aww, that doesn't look good... Oh well, I lived a good life. *plugs nose & downs it* o_O That's gonna take awhile to digest...
04-05-2004, 06:33 PM
Damn, forgot to put in the pill that prevents stomach pain..now you have to face your stomach bloating than nearly blowing up like a bomb..somehow I dont' think that's too unpainful..
04-05-2004, 06:36 PM
:shock: You'll be hearing from my lawyer.
04-05-2004, 06:41 PM

04-05-2004, 06:41 PM
Jaws is my lawyer...I usually win most cases cuz of his size...the pain willl kick in about 3 seconds...3..2..1...Ok , that won't be too good.
04-05-2004, 06:46 PM

04-05-2004, 06:50 PM
It lasts for five minutes...*gives her a picture of a real life hedgehog to distract her*
04-05-2004, 06:54 PM
*five minutes later*
Do that again and I'll sic the evil fuzzy bunnies on you.
04-05-2004, 06:56 PM
Er...what..evil..fuzzy bunnies...hehe...:)'''' *burps and a bunch of pink fur comes out* (Damn, those things were good.) Eheh...:mrgreen:'''
04-05-2004, 07:01 PM
Ah, you should not eat the evil fuzzy bunnies. They'll get their revenge. That, or they'll give you some major heart burn.
04-05-2004, 07:05 PM
That's why I took the specially prescripted Evil Fuzzy Bunny heartburn preventer medicine. Evil Fuzzy bunnies are a delicacy in Hell...just need to have that pill.
04-05-2004, 07:14 PM
g2g now, be back tommorrow. cya.
04-06-2004, 11:00 AM
Bleh, why would people wanna eat the evil fuzzy bunnies?!
04-06-2004, 07:08 PM
Cuz the meat inside is really good to Hell people.
04-07-2004, 11:01 AM
I am very glad that I'm not a person.

04-11-2004, 06:03 PM
Merry Easter peoples! Hehe, I'm glad I have a computer again. :mrgreen: I went to my grandparent's house, and the most advanced thing they have is a tv...and a somewhat junky one at that.
04-12-2004, 06:44 PM
Happy..day after easter! :mrgreen: NEXT CHP
04-12-2004, 06:57 PM
Heh, I would've wrote some of the next chapter when I was at my grandparents, but I, uh, kinda got caught up in playing Sonic Battle.
04-13-2004, 03:52 PM
sonic battle = too addictive.
cure = stop playing and write!!!
04-13-2004, 04:31 PM
But, but, that's too hard! Why must they make games so addicting? WHY?!
04-13-2004, 04:47 PM
thanks a lot you reminded me of my homework... heh... *gets books* now, you must write!
04-14-2004, 02:48 PM
How da heck did I do that? I couldn't write at school today cuz A: I had animation and B: I had to write an essay about my project which is due in... *looks at calender* about three weeks?! :shock: Aww nuts....
To make up for lost time maybe I'll write before bed, then I'll end up falling asleep all over my papers. :mrgreen:
04-17-2004, 11:39 AM
*manages to dig way out of papers* YOu could get lost and never come back outta this stuff if you didn't know which way was up...
WalletK: Which way is up, anyway?
Me: You would be a goner...
04-17-2004, 03:18 PM
Yeah, instead of using smoke bombs to confuse people, just use paper. Lots and lots of paper!
04-17-2004, 05:50 PM
*huge wave of paper comes up from behind me*
Me: *vanishes* *appears behind wave* Whew, I knew that stealth dash would be good. *another wave comes up* *I turn around* Oh cr@p. *FLAM* *digs way out* whew...too..much..PAPER....NXT CHP :mrgreen:
04-17-2004, 06:16 PM
Fear the paper! No one can stand up to it's paper-y power.
*goat comes up to the mountain of paper and starts eating*
Uhhh....ok, so I lied...
I'm tryin' to get the next chapter done, but I'm having issues with page, what is it, 167-ish. Can't think of how to word the stuff...
04-17-2004, 06:27 PM
*cranks head to one side* meh? 167...*shrugs* I got no clue...*feeds goat to Jaws*
04-17-2004, 06:43 PM
Page 167 is evil, EVIL I SAY!!! *eats page 167*
Goat: :shock: *cue frantic goat sounds from inside Jaws*
04-17-2004, 07:36 PM
Jaws: *chews goat*
Me: He rarely chews, but when he wants to get a good taste, he does...ough..*watches little bits of horn and blood come out*
04-18-2004, 11:42 AM
Ewww... Raw goat, I just can't see how that can taste good.
04-23-2004, 06:45 PM
Well, you don't have the tastebuds of a shark..especially prehistoric types.. *grabs a horn and puts it in a nearby cauldron and watches it go BOOM* Now I've made a revival potion! *pours whole cauldron into bottles, than stuffes bottles in pocket*
04-23-2004, 08:44 PM
I can live without tasteing things as a shark would! You must have really big pockets to fit all that stuff in 'em.
04-23-2004, 09:20 PM
me = needs next chapter.
04-24-2004, 09:21 AM
I'm tryin' to finish the chapter! Finally got past the part that I was stuck on... Not sure when it'll be done.
04-24-2004, 03:18 PM
I can wait for a few more days..I guess.
10 min later
GAAAAAAAAAHH! NEED CHP NOOOOWWWWW! :mrgreen:
04-24-2004, 05:39 PM
*gives Killar a cookie*
Relax! Think about other stuff so you don't go crazy or something. Or you could go crazy and meet those nice people in white coats! I know 'em, nice people they are.
04-24-2004, 05:42 PM
They weren't that nice. They tried to inject me so I injected them...Those guys are dead..OAOAODADEAD! *turns cookie to fireball and hurls it at Shadic*
04-24-2004, 05:54 PM
Awww...now there's no one to lock me in a sponge fill room with a rubber ducky... :cry: *realizes the flaming cookie* AHHHHHH!!! FIRE!!!! *jumps in a lake* Phew... Hey, wait a min- PIRANA!!! AHHHHH!!! Bad fishies, OW, very bad fishies!
04-24-2004, 05:57 PM
JJAAAWSS! *RUMBLE RUMBLE RUMBLE RUMBLE*
Piranas: *stop* ?_?
*Jaws pops out of the water and eats them*
Me: Well, there are a bunch of more men in white coats, here they come now!
Man in White Coat: Come on, Shadic, time for your sponge thing!
Me: I WANNA GO!
Man: MEEP! KILLAR! Eh, whatever...
04-24-2004, 06:06 PM
*runs outta water* A pirana bit my tail! It hurts! OW OW OW OW!!! *trips and squishes pirana* Oops...
Guy in white coat: *shakes head* I know a certain someone who needs more intensive treatment here!
04-24-2004, 06:11 PM
Jaws: *eats the piranha*
man in white coat: Ok, comeon, to the sponge room!
*5 min later*
Man: Ok, I'll keep you in here for an hour. *locks door*
Me:...this place is filling up with water but than getting sucked up by the sponge stuff. *slips on rubber duck* *POOMF* Weird sound too.
04-24-2004, 06:15 PM
*jumps up and down* I think they gotta replace the sponge or something, it's not very bouncy any more. Or maybe it's just all the water, who knows!
04-24-2004, 06:18 PM
*water floods in*
Me: *jumps and goes like a comet into the ceiling* *head is stuck* I thinkf thatf thef watef maketh it boucier. (Translate: I think the water makes it bouncier.)
04-24-2004, 06:23 PM
So THAT'S what the water's for! Uh, do you have a plan on how to get down or should I get a ladder?
