"248's back. I repeat, 248's back." I hear someone say, then a burst of static, and my chest collapses. It's over for real this time. 248 is my name in the labs. They've actually caught me. Six years running, all for nothing. Just to be hit by a car and dragged back.

My eyelids are forced open, and bright light invades the darkness. I want to pull away, but I can't move, can't open my eyes. Pain runs through me.

"Still responsive, but she's definitely fell deeper. Bloody hell, I thought that when we caught her…she wouldn't be an unconscious mess." Another voice says, and I catch the pain in it.

"I know. If she dies on us…do you think she can hear us?" the first voice asks.

"Yeah, sure. Remember when I got knocked out on that mission ages ago? I could still hear every conversation, every noise. Jerry…I kind of feel sorry for her and her parents, you know? I mean, her parents are still in that prison, and she's freaking radioactive, for God's sake. None of them asked for this. I mean, she's probably terrified, poor kid. We've hunted her like a pack of wolves for six years. Imagine if this was your daughter. Oh well. You gotta do what you gotta do to keep the country safe." The second voice says, then sighs.

"I hear you, but orders are orders. Especially when the President himself gives them. God, sometimes I hate this job, but someone's gotta do it." The guy I assume to be Jerry says. I feel alone, so alone. No-one can help me. Even the President doesn't want me around. I think of my cell, the dull walls, the uncomfortable bed, the hard floor, the metal door that I can never open, the painful experiments and tests…the pain in my body suddenly flares up and I sink towards oblivion.
