“You know him?” my partner asked as he closed the bag and unknowingly helped lift my dead brother to the stretcher beside us.

“Something like that,” I responded.

My stomach was churning but there was nothing I could do about it. Visions of Korse drifted through my mind. He killed my brother. He stepped over my brother like a puddle on the snow-white floors. My mind raced back to the night before I left to become a scarecrow, the last time I saw my brother.

They gave me four hours to pack and say goodbye—that was pretty generous for them. Two dracs waited outside our front door in the dark, prepared to restrain me should I try to make a run for it. I wasn’t going to. Only cowards ran away.

FanFic---> Chapter 17 Part 2

“Jumbo” I named the man in front of me. He was bigger than me, taller than me, maybe twice my size. His white t-shirt was soaked through in sweat. He, like me, was trained to win at all costs. Weaponized people were all we were.

I knew what they were doing, the heads that is, they were testing me and my limits. Like any other test, grades came as ‘pass’ and ‘fail’, but failing here left a few more scars than detention at my old high school.

The other dracs in my group stood around me, ready to watch the fight. Their intense stairs only made me feel more determined to win. I hoped maybe Korse was up in the tower watching me too. He could get me out of here, convince the heads I was ready to see some real action. He could make sure I never have to see this blinding white building again.

FanFic---> Chapter 16 Part 2

Thrash took grip of my hand, “I’m not proud of it.”

I looked up to his eyes, his emerald eyes. He was contemplating how much of the truth to tell. I just hoped he could help me make sense of what was going on. I pulled him to the ground. I wanted him eye-level. I wanted to see what unfamiliar honesty looked like in his eyes.

“You have to promise you won’t tell anyone, especially Heart Strings, that I told you.”

“Of course not,” I smiled, hoping to calm him down, “I wouldn’t tell anyone.”

“This isn’t a joke, Kandy. This is serious. This is dangerous.”

“I know,” I told him, removing my smile, “believe me, you don’t have to remind me of the danger.”

We were in silence as we sat there in the dust. Then, he sighed.

“I guess there’s no right way to say this,” he began, “but here it goes…”

FanFic---> Chapter 15 Part 2

“Tell me what you know.”

Thrash was commanding me. He seemed taller than usual, stronger in a way. What was he thinking? That I would just give up all my secrets right there? He had to give away a few of his own first.

“No,” I told him.

He was staring me down. His voice didn’t seem smooth anymore. It was angry. He obviously didn’t like surprises, but I couldn’t tell what he was feeling and thinking. His eyes were on lock down, his boots firmly to the ground.

“Tell me how you and Heart Strings know each other,” I commanded in return to his anger.

He let out a breath of luck and relief while taking a step back. He brought his hand to his head, pulled down his hood and ran his fingers through the back of his hair.

“You don’t know anything, do you?” he asked with a self-assured smile as he stepped closer.

The tables had been turned and this time, they were being turned on me.

FanFic---> Chapter 14 Part 2

I know! I'm sorry! im just soo busy! You will have to have some mercy on me and my insane schedual!
but here's chapter 14. I hope you like it!
--DANNI :)

I left Thrash in his tent. I wanted him to stay alone in there. I wanted him to think about me. I wanted to be on his mind and his face to be bruised by my hand. I laughed, as if I had the power to actually bruise him.

I shouldn’t have reacted like I did, but I didn’t regret it. He shouldn’t have talked about my brothers the way he did. I didn’t feel like proving to him that my brothers loved me. I didn’t have to prove anything to him. But that conversation wasn’t over. I would be back. And this time, I would be the one asking the questions.

The sun was gone again. I counted my steps away from the tent’s door; three, four, five. I couldn’t help wondering if Thrash was right. Were they really trying to protect me?

FanFic---> Chapter 13 Part 2

“Is there anyone else out there that’s been trying to kill you?” Thrash asked.

“No,” I told him, trying to be confident about my answer.

“Are you sure?” he asked, digging, “What about your brothers or Jet or Ghoul? Was there anyone trying to kill them?”

I stood up and turned to him. My skin was burning from the inside out.

“The only people trying to kill them succeeded,” I told him with my eyes to the ground.

I wished he would go back to being quiet. I wished he would go back to his steps without a sound, his silent words, but he kept going.

“I know this is tough, but you have to tell me the truth.”

“No one else wanted to kill them,” I said.

“How do you know?” he insisted.

“Because I know them,” I replied, furious.

“Do you?” he asked quietly.

“Of course I do,” I told him, my arms still crossed.

It wasn’t the right thing to do. I knew it wasn’t the right thing to do, but the right thing was a little blurry at that moment. I’m not proud of what I tried to do. And as I write this, I’m going to tell you what no one else bothered to tell me. Don’t try this at home, kids.

FanFic---> Chapter 11 Part 2

“Grace!” I called to the world around me, “Grace!”

I walked around our camp in an aimless fashion, hoping I would find Grace playing somewhere. I had to leave as soon as possible, but I wanted to see her before I left. I was sure the rest of the killjoys would take care of her, but the guilt of leaving her after so much had happened was killing me. I couldn’t help but think this was the same thing as when my brothers left me alone in the desert.

I tried to shake off the guilty feeling. No. This wasn’t the same thing. She wasn’t alone here. She even had Facts to play with. She had Dr. Death to look after her. This wasn’t the same as kidnapping her and leaving her in the middle of the desert for days. I kept telling myself I had nothing to feel guilty about.

I traced the walls of the outside of the guy’s tent with my fingers as the sun was steadily falling lower to the horizon. I hoped Grace would be behind tent as I followed the walls toward the end of canvas walls.

FanFic---> Chapter 10 Part 2

I escaped behind the flap of the tent, hiding from everyone else. I kept my head down, hoping if I didn’t see anyone, they wouldn’t see me either. It was a useless effort.

“Kandy,” came a female voice.

I turned to see Princess sitting up in her bed, Setback sitting at her feet, staring. She knew. I felt naked in front of them, like they could see right through me. They knew all my weaknesses.

“I’m so sorry,” Princess said with a tinge of unnecessary guilt in her words.

“It’s gonna be okay,” I told her with a weak smile, but feeling with all my heart that it most certainly was not going to be okay, “That’s just life, right?”

Setback raised his blue eyes, he looked uncomfortable. He knew more than Princess did about what happened at Battery City. It was clear the thought of losing Princess really shook him up. Like me, he wasn’t fully recovered from that awful morning. The only difference was that he would recover. Both of them would be okay.
