Angel in the Dark

Chapter One

Thirteen weeks I've been stuck in this hellhole. My mind plauged with the death of my best friend. They took me away before I could help her and then....Fae sighs rolling over grunting in pain. Clenching her teeth she placed her hand over her stomache. I don't care how many times they tell me she was dead we still had enough time to save her. I tried to fight them off, get to her, and the next thing I know I was on the floor. I just remember the blood...all that blood and I remember being relieved because if I died I could see Jayden again and tell her I was sorry for not being strong enough to save her. I said I would protect her and I failed.

They thought they could make it up to me by sticking me in a room with a bunch of creepy ass dolls. Why? Hell, if I know...they probably thought they could give me back my childhood. Fae snorted at the thought even when I was little kid I wouldn't play with this crap. I don't know why they would think that...I mean looking at my clothes they would know I was a skater. I'm not the type who was into make up and dresses. I was the girl who was into hard rock/screamo music, that wears neon colors, and skates all over town not giving a crap about the law or the criticizing looks. I was just me and, you know, the guys didn't look at me as a girl, but that didn't bother me as long as me and Jayden were friends. We were considered outcast in our little suburban town I was the rebel and she was the hippie. Our town, you know, prim and proper no crime...just your ordinary snoopy back stabbing neighbors.

That's all gone now. At first it was just, you know, a joke I mean the whole world ending. We all wanted an apocalypse and be the type of people who, you know, fought off zombies, but it became real. I mean not the zombie part, but a disease something that made a person become insane that they end up killing their family or turning them. At first I thought it was a joke I mean it was April 1st when this happened. Then the military started showing up in our towns blockading the roads keeping people from getting in or out. Still after all the procedures and the demand of staying in our homes we were over ran by the infected. I was living alone at the time so my only worry was getting Jayden and myself out of there. I saw little kids and neighbors that I knew for a really long time being attacked. I don't know what it was, but you could tell they were infected by the saliva coming out of their mouths and their was weird tint in their eyes not exactly red, but it was a mixture between red and black.

The saddest part of this whole thing, I mean besides losing Jayden is that I can't even skate anymore. Skating was the only way I could take things off my mind. Now, I'm stuck in this poorly lit room with a bunch of creepy dolls. Do you know how many times I tried to get out of this room? I tried the door it was locked I even tried to pick the lock, but it wouldn't budge. I tried the window, but it's nailed down. I mean its like they don't want me to leave. Hell, I'm kind of grateful that I have a bathroom in the room that they give me. Food and water is lifted in that dumbwaiter I think that's what it's called. I don't remember its been a while since I've been in school.

I kind of miss school which is kind of funny because I hated school and it hated me back. I mean I'm not going to miss the cliques and the jokes/rumours about me and Jayden being "lesbians". I mean we're friends we didn't think of eachother in that way. I mean it all started when Clarissa, you know, the "Queen Bee" of the school saw me and Jayden skinny dipping in a secluded lake. I mean it was just for fun we were just trying to relax and sooth our tighten muscles. Believe it or not I'm a dancer. And no not hip hop actually ballet. Haha I know it's funny thinking of a skater doing ballet, but it makes us more, you know, graceful. Once upon a time I was gangly and clumsy now I'm graceful and sort of flexible.
