Chapter 1

I woke up under a bench in the subway in New York. Anyone who had to take the train early in the morning would stare at me who would pass by me. I'd just hug myself tighter because it's so cold down here. I crawled from under the bench and stretched my self out. I had two slits in the back of my shirt where my wings would fold in. I ran to the nearest bathroom and made sure no one was in there. I unfolded my wings and stretched them out.

I heard the door open and I quickly turned around. A woman was staring at me in shock. She was holding a cell phone to her ear. She dropped it and screamed running out. I tucked my wings in and ran out the bathroom not looking to see who saw me. I had incredible speed that if I wanted I could look like all I was was a blur. I did just that and ran until I stopped in the middle of central park. I sat under a tree and was gentle not to hurt my wings.

If you're wondering if I can fly I can. But New York is just so crowed someone would spot me in a heartbeat. Then I'd be put back in the LAB. I didn't ever want to go back there. Someone stopped in front of me cause I heard them with my keen sense of hearing. I looked up and a man was standing over me. He was smiling widly at me. I pushed into his thoughts and listened.

This is the subject that escaped. I'll act like I'm oing to help her. Then give her the needle that'll put her to sleep until I take her back to the LAB. Perfect.

"Hey little girl, you lost?" he said trying to sound friendly.

I quickly stood up then high kicked him. He fell back and landed on the concrete sidewalk. He grabbed my ankle and pulled me down. I hit my head, but kept fighting. I finally was able to get him off me and kicked him in his nose. It began to bleed. I ran to an apartment building and went up the steps to the roof. I looked down at central park where I just was and the man was gone. I looked around but he wasn't there, then someone grabbed me from behind.

"Let me go!," I screamed.

People below began to gasp and scream. More and more people began to look up. Some even began to call the police. That wasn't good. I struggled to get this man off of me, but he just wouldn't let go. I felt a few drops of his blood begin to drip onto my neck from his nose. He spun me around and slapped me. I fell to the ground.I began to hear sirens.

"You're coming with me whether you come willingly or not," he said spitting up some blood from two missing teeth when I high kicked him.

"No I'm not!," I screamed jumping up to my feet.

"Fine," he said pulling out a dart tube.

I unfolded my wings and jumped off the building. Everyone started screaming, but the wind pick me up and I soared to the trees in central park. I landed in the tree before and watched the scene before my eyes.The man who was after me had tried to grab me fell off the top of the six-story apartment building and died. Breaking every bone in his body. I quickly jumped from the tree and flew NorthWest to Connecticut. I flew for a good 5 hrs. until I reached Bridgeport, Connecticut. I was so tired and my limbs felt like rubber. I landed on top of a highschool by the looks of it.

When I tried to land I instantly tumbled rolling and sprainging my left wing. Shoot! I gently tucked them away and layed on top of the roof. Why was I so tired? I tried moving my left arm but it wouldn't budge. I looked down at it and blood was decending it. It looked like that man got me with the dart gun. I looked around the roof and a dart was near me. I crawled over and picked it up. It had something in it that is making me fall asleep. My fall must've torn open my arm when I landed badly.

It should heal soon enough. But for now I should get some rest. I couldn't even move enough to gosleep under a bench. I hope it doesn't rain tonight. I closed my eyes and drifted into sleep for who knows how long.
