Total Desolation Part 18

We all got up and walked outside. I doubled checked to make sure the first aid kit was in my black LF-A Lexus Roadster before I threw my keys to Raven, he would be the one to drive it. Raven and Fang got into the front seats of my car as Torture, Bomb, and I got on our bikes. I revved my engine and darted off towards the BLI/nd base.
When we were about 5 miles away from the base Raven and Fang parked my car and we lowered the hood so it would be easier to get the killjoys in. Fang joined Torture on his bike and Raven joined me on my bike. The three of us darted forward towards the BLI/nd base until it came into view. From there on I slammed the gas and darted forward at a top speed of 190mph with my upgraded engine and maxed out stats that I had made my bike into I was pretty decently happy with how fast I could make it go though I wished it would go faster.
I felt Raven tighten his grip around my waist as he prepared for me to stop. The only problem was that I wasn’t going to stop where he thought I was going to.
“HOLD ON!” I yelled back to everyone, knowing they would all follow me, though the other two bikes were farther back, hopefully they wouldn’t slow down.
I forced my bike to go faster, the speedometer had stopped at 175 and the needle was rushing to the edge so it couldn’t go any further. I looked back at the road to see the base coming up, it was 25 yards away. I glanced back at the speedometer to see the needle hanging lifeless at the bottom, it was broken from going so fast.
I crashed my bike thru the giant glass window at the front of the Better Living base and skidded to a stop in the lobby, quickly kicking the stand down. Immediately the alarms started blaring and the lights started flashing. Glass rained down on us all as Raven and I quickly got off the bike and drew our rayguns. All of the Dracs turned their attention towards us but soon had their attention on the other two bikes as Bomb, Torture, and Fang came thru the window I just crashed thru. I took this opportunity to let off several shots off from my raygun, dropping a Drac from every shot. Raven followed suit, soon enough the other two bikes were parked next to mine and we were a little group of destruction.
Quickly enough every Drac in the lobby was dead, I figured there were somewhere around 60 in the lobby, and we were moving closer to the main desk. When we got there I sat down at the desk and the other four played my bodyguards. I opened all the files that they had and printed them all. Every single thing that was on the computer system was left to print at the printer. Once I had everything to set to print we began moving thru the rest of the building.
I had learned some time ago that no matter what computer you were at you had access to everything that Better Living had, well in that specific base. BLI/nd had made a point to have different things going on in different bases. Normally I would have found a smaller room to print things from where I could cover myself from and I would have only printed what I needed but since I had backup I was printing everything and I would just let it print in the lobby while we got the other killjoys. We would have to go back to the lobby anyway cause our bikes were there.
We left the lobby and headed down the hallway that connected with it. There was a crowd of Dracs headed our way, probably responding to the alarm from the lobby. We made quick work of finishing them and continued on, stepping over their dead bodies. When we were almost to the edge of the dead Dracs one of them grabbed my left ankle, apparently he was playing dead. I responded quickly by bring my right foot around and kicking him in the side of his head of what I hoped was his temple. He let go on my ankle to rub at his bleeding head and I brought a knife down on his throat.
We continued on thru the hall until it split off in two directions, left or right.
“This way.” I said as I began walking down the right hall. My crew followed me thru the halls, taking my word for everything since I had been here before. We had a few stops to take down groups of Dracs responding to the alarm. I was barely aware of the flashing red lights and blaring sirens that surrounded us and our every little move.
Finally we turned a corner and there were the killjoys on either side of us. From being down the hall before I knew each of them had their own little room with a mattress thrown on the floor, taking up over half of the room in there and that was it, they had nothing else. If you looked forward down the hall it ended in a room where you could see a table with arm and leg restraints and there were various weapons and tools set along tables and hanging from the walls for torture.
I made my way to the first of the cells and peered through the little window in the door. I peered in and saw a girl slouched in the corner, her arms were folded and he head tilted back into the corner of the wall. She had long black hair with a purple tint, it may have once been curled and looked nice but it was now ragged and all over the place, presumably from fighting back at Dracs torturing her. Even from here I could see she had bright emerald green eyes. She had pale skin, probably paler than usual from malnutrition and she looked to be about 5’2. She wore blood stained black skinny jeans and black high top converse. She had on a black tube top that was ripped and barely staying on. She was a mess, with blood stains on her clothes and smeared on her face. She looked like she had been crying with what was left of her mascara running down her face. She was a total mess but hopefully she was alive.
I tapped on the door lightly to see if she would have a reaction and she did, her head snapped forward and her body tensed up, she was ready to give another fight. I didn’t want to get attacked when I opened the door so I knocked the way I did for everything. Every killjoy I had ever met knew me by my knock, half of them knew the knock from the same reason this girl would. No Drac or any member of BLI/nd would knock like this so I knew it was safe. I watched as the girl slowly untensed, unsure of it being a trick or not. I wished these cells had a way of talking to the prisoners. From there I expertly picked the lock, I had done is so many times on so many different locks it became a second nature. I slowly opened the door, unsure of what her reaction would be and stepped in.
The girl looked me up and down before letting her guard down a little more. I offered her my hand. “I’m a killjoy, no worries, I’m here to get you out. My name’s Acidic Venom. We’re going to get you all out safely, even the others.”
“Thanks, I’m Silent Violence, but you can call me V.” She said as she took my hand to get up.
I put my arm under hers and supported her until we were out of the cell. When we got out I quickly told her the names of my crew and told them hers. I handed V over to Raven to support her and went to the next cell.
I quickly looked in to see another girl, she was pale and had ragged dirty blonde hair with red highlights. She was curled in a ball on the mattress. I gave the door my knock and she jolted awake, she sat up and I could see her official outfit. She had dark purple jeans and a yellow t-shirt over it that has a blank skull and crossbones that's smiling. She wore a pair of black and white checkered converse, and like V she had blood stains on her clothes and smeared across her body. I could see scars and bruises in different stages of healing all over her arms and I could only imagine what had happened to her leg that it was twisted like that. It looked like it had been broken and put on sideways. I picked the lock and entered. Her face got some color to it now realising it really was someone here to save her.
“My name’s Acidic Venom. I’m here with my crew to save you all.”
“I’m Lithium Sorrows.”
“Alright Sorrows, we’re gonna get you out of here.”
From there I moved over to her and picked her up bridal style, I didn’t even want her to try and stand on that leg. I carried her out of the cell and introduced her to my crew. I then handed her over to Fang to carry bridal style. I found V had refused Raven’s support and leaned against the wall but didn’t question it.
I moved to the third cell and looked in. As far as I could see there was no one in there, but I knew there was last time so I knocked. A girl slowly moved into my view, she was about 4’9 and pale but not as pale as the other two, malnutrition was getting to her. She had blue eyes with a yellow ring around the pupil and dirty blonde hair. She had a light purple shirt with different stars all over the place and dark purple pants. She had on a pair of black lace up converse. Right along with the other two she was covered in blood and bruised. I picked the lock and entered.
“My name is Acidic Venom, I’m a killjoy, me and my crew are here to save you guys.” I held out my hand for her.
She took my hand. “My name’s Shooting Star, you can call me Star.”
I took her out to the hall with the others and introduced her. I handed her over to Torture to support.
I went to the next cell to see if there was anyone in there, little surprise, there was. But this time it was a guy. He was thin and pale with messy short light-brown hair. He looked like he had just been put in there, a little roughed up, probably from struggling with Dracs to try and not be locked up, but not any serious damage. He wore a pair of white low top converse all stars and black skinny jeans along with a red and white striped shirt. I knocked and watched him jump at the sound. I quickly picked the lock and entered.
“I’m Acidic venom, I’m a killjoy here with my crew. We’re going to get you out of here along with the other’s.”
“I’m Atomic Revenge, thanks so much.” He seemed a bit overly happy, but who wouldn’t when they were being rescued right after being locked up.
I brought him out to the hall and introduced him to my crew. I left him there while I went for the rest.
I went to the second last cell and looked in. There was a small girl in the fetal position crying. She had shoulder length black hair with an orange streak that was messed up but not too badly, she must have been newly acquired considering I hadn’t seen her before. I knocked and picked the lock before watching her reaction. I walked in and as soon as she recognized me as a killjoy she threw herself at me in a hug. Feeling awkward in a hug I just kinda stood there.
“Umm my name’s Acidic Venom, let’s get you out of here.”
“I’m Flash Drive.” She said, finally letting me go.
I took her out of the cell and handed her off to Bomb.
I went to the last cell and looked in, there was a girl standing on the mattress. I knocked and picked the lock. Her hair was all over the place and her clothes covered in blood as the others were. She wore a long sleeved red and black striped shirt, black skinny jeans, and red converse.
“My name's Acidic Venom, I’m a killjoy and we’re gonna get you out of here.”
“I’m Daydream Teenager.” She went to step off the mattress and fell to the floor.
I picked her up and carried her out to the hall bridal style. I introduced her to my crew and handed her over to Raven since he didn’t have anyone.
“Let’s move out.” I said.
Raven carried Daydream bridal style, Fang still carried Sorrows bridal style, and Torture took to carrying Star bridal style. Bomb held Flash in a piggy back with one arm ready to shoot any Dracs and Revenge walked along with us. I took to supporting V, she seemed to be more or less like me, which meant she wouldn’t trust us easily, but given the fact that I was the actual one to save her and the leader, I guess she took to me more.
We moved back along the halls me stopping every now and then to set some C4. I had most of is set from last week that BLI/nd didn’t find and I had planned to blow this place to bits but I couldn’t do that to my killjoys.
We finally arrived back at the lobby and Torture and Raven left Daydream and Star by my bike and went to get my car. I went back to the main desk and found all my papers were printed, I took them and slid them safely into an inner pocket of my trench coat.
As I stood in the lobby with everyone else I began wondering where all the Dracs were. We had only taken on somewhere around 150 or so, there had to be more in this base. Hell there weren’t even any by the cells that held the four girls. Something odd was happening, hopefully the papers I printed would shed some light on it.
Torture came back in the lobby with his bike and Raven pulled up just outside the shattered window with my car. We put Revenge in the front seat and Star and Daydream took the back seat, with Sorrows leg over hers. Flash was going to drive with Bomb and V refused to go with anyone other than me.
We had just gotten them in the car when all of a sudden the alarms and flashing red lights stopped. I had gotten used to the lights and sound and for it to stop all of a sudden it was weird.
“Raven, get them out of here and back to main camp now! Don’t wait for us, go now!”
Raven revved the engine and shot away from us, leaving a cloud of dust and sand in his wake. I squinted my eyes against the dust and made my way back to my bike, bringing V with me.
“Bomb, Flash Drive! Get to your bike now!”
I heard coughing in return and soon they appeared next to me. As they got on their bike I began yelling for them to go.
“Get on the bike and go! Don’t stop until you’re back at base!”
I watched as they sped off away towards the main base. Then I turned to V.
“You with me?”
“Do I have a choice?”
“No, now get on the bike, wait for me, don’t go anywhere, got it?”
“Yeah.”
I started walking back towards the hallway and main desk. I had to hit the button that would start the one minute timer to blow up the building. I still couldn’t see well from the dust and sand. I heard footsteps and looked up towards the hallway. I saw a figure standing in the doorway and more shuffling around behind him.
