When They Took Over: Chapter 6

Chapter Six: Found and Held Captive

A man dress in white and blue polka dot tights, a black thong, a white mid-drift top that said ‘Noise’ on the front, a white and blue helmet and white roller skates rolled along the pale road in the blistering heat and came cross Katia. He stopped rolling and approached her, crouched down beside her. He checked her pulse, she was alive, and there was no doubt that she was dehydrated. He picked her up and rolled back down the road to an abandoned diner, some of the letters of the sign were missing. It now read ‘DIE’. He rolled inside and laid Katia on one of the tables.
“What this you brought here, Show Pony?” came a booming male voice with a strong western accent. Show Pony lifted the visor of his helmet up and looked at the man that walked into the room.
“I founder on the borders of Zones 2 and 5.” He said. “She’s still alive, just dehydrated.”
“Ok, I can fix that in a jiffy.” Said the man, he wore a black leather jacket that said “Slaughtermatic Sounds” on the back in red and her wore light gyre denim trousers and a mean pair of aviator style sunglasses. This was Dr. Death Defying.
Katia stated to stir.
“I’d better go get some water for her.” Said Dr.D walked out of the room and fetching a big canteen of cool water. He lifted Katia’s head and put the canteen to her mouth so she could drink. She guzzled down the whole contence of the canteen under a minute. Dr. D got another canteen and she drank it all. After her belly was full of hydrating water she closed her eyes and slept.
“Thank you.” She whispered as she fell into a peacefully deep sleep.
Dr.D and Show Pony carried her to a spare room where they put her on the single bed and left her there to regain her strength…

Ray woke up with a start, they were all still in the prison cell. They were all still weak and frightened.
“Great…” mumbled Ray. “We’re being held captive.”
“I hope we get out of hear.” Said Mikey. Gerard shuffled over to his dear little brother and held him in his tight embrace.
“Don’t worry Mikey, we will get out of here somehow.” Cooed Gerard, soothing his brother.
All of a sudden a Drac, followed by you guessed it; more Dracs came to the metal bars of the prison cell.
“You will be returned to your dormitories, where you we live a better life. If you are caught practising any art of any form, you will be punished severely.” Said the Drac. The others opened the metal door and grabbed Gerard, Ray, Gisele and Mikey by the arms and hauled them out. Another two Dracs slummed a still unconscious Frank and Rhonda over their shoulders and walked out after the others.
There were all dumped back in their dormitory. Korse walked in as Frank stated to stir.
“I hope you have learnt your lesson. If you are even caught planning an escape or practising any art of any form, I might just kill you myself.” Said Korse coldly. “You will be confined to your dormitory until my master tells me to let you do your duties as Draculoids again.” With that he walked out and slammed the door of the dormitory shut, Dracs following behind him.
“What was that all about?” asked Mikey. Gerard got up and walked over to Mikey.
“I think this ‘Better Living Industries’ is giving us the ‘better’ life they promised.” Said Ray, getting frustrated. Frank woke up and looked around.
“How long was I out for?” he asked
“About six hours.” Said Gerard, counting on his fingers’
“Shit! What that bastard did to us was awful! We seriously NEED to bust out of this place.” Said Frank getting up and swaying from dizziness. Ray straightened him up and sat Frank down on the couch. “Thanks, Ray.” He said. Ray nodded and sat beside him.
“Guys if we get caught planning, we’ll be killed!” exclaimed Gisele.
“I know, but we can’t just stay here and be brainwashed like those mindless Dracs.” Said Ray.
Gerard looked at Rhonda, she was still unconscious. He rolled her over so that she was facing up.
He checked her pulse on her neck, it was beating slowly. He then put his ear to her chest to check her breathing. He heard slow, deep breaths. Gerard tried to shake her awake, but nothing happened.
“Rhonda? Rhonda, wake up.” He whispered in her ear. ‘Why won’t she wake up?’ thought Gerard.
“What’s up with Rhonda? She hasn’t woken up since she was thrown back in the cell.” Said Ray, remembering her trying to tell him what they did to her and Gerard- what they did to all of them. Gerard shook her again, this time her head lolled to the side.
“I know what will wake her up.” Said Mikey, getting up, walking to the kitchen. Everyone else could hear a tap running. Mikey returned and stood over her. “Hey Rhonda!” he said as he dumped a bucket full of water on her. She gasped loudly and opened her eyes. She sat bolt upright and she was soaking wet. Gerard, not minding the fact the Rhonda was sopping wet, pulled her in for a tight hug.
“Thank goodness you’re awake!” he said. She hugged him back and looked up at a rather pleased Mikey.
“Thanks.” She said. “I owe you one.”
“No problem.” Mikey set the bucket down and sat on the floor beside his, now wet, brother. “So what are we going to do?”
“I don’t know.” Said Frank, sighing. “Well, at least we’re all together. That’s all that matters.”
Ray nodded, as did Gerard. Ray shuffled closer to Gisele, who rested her head on his shoulder. Gerard sat between Mikey and Rhonda with an arm around each. Frank sat on the other side of Ray and, he too, rested his head on Ray’s other shoulder.
They all sat in silence for a while, until the blazing golden sun in the burning sky, started to set, and they all fell asleep as they were.
