Chapter 11: Rogue Run

 

"EX0L8, can you stop?! I need to go!!" EXLG0 and EXCaR whines while riding on EX0L8's back. With a growl of irritation, she does.

 

"Ok, first off, now that we are out of there, new names. Just call us Sara."

 

They look at her in confusion.

 

"Us? What do you mean? Why are you talking like there is two of you?"

 

She points to her head.

 

"That's because there is. I am Instinct, she is Sara. You'll know when she comes out again. Now, new names for you."

 

EXLG0 gives her a look. "I swear, it's going to be something predictable like Angel or Angela or something, isn't it?"

 

Instinct shakes her head and smiles faintly, amused. "No. I thought Alex would be an ok name, what do you think."

 

She blinks. "Oh. It's fine, I guess. But what about EXCaR?"

 

Instinct looks at EXCaR, and thinks of one quickly.

 

"How about Theresa?" She asks EXCaR.

 

"That's an ok name I guess. What are the names for, like when we go into a city? And can we please go now?!" She whines.

 

Instinct waves her hand absent mindly. "Go ahead. Just do me a favor and don't take too long. We've still got a lot of ground to cover." She starts to feel wozy, and unfocused.

 

I should have guessed. About twenty four hours is my limit before Sara will take back over the body. Don't worry about it Sara, we'll be fine.

 

While the two girls relieve themselves in the woods, Sara and Instinct trade places. She lets her hair flow down, removing her ponytail, and allowing it to blow in the breeze once more. The breeze flowing through their hair relaxes them, for the first time they feel calm and collected.

 

So what's your plan, Sara? You're the boss of the joint.

 

...I am?

 

I'm not the one looking for this Matthew guy as though I'm addicted to him. So what now?

 

I... I'm not sure. I feel a strange tug in my mind, it keeps pointing the same way, like a compass. I'm not sure how, but I think that it's focused on Matthew. ...I don't remember him directly, it's just a surge of emotions and desires that come with his name.

 

...How odd. So where does this compass of yours point?

 

...I think it points to the south, somewhere warm.

 

Ok, south it is. Man... they're slow.

 

"Hurry up already!!!" They yell together.

 

Matthew wakes up late in the night, his alarm clock says 12:PM. Great, just what I needed. He thinks to himself. He gazes up out at the window, looking at the silver full moon.

 

Man, the moon is beautiful tonight. What is this... feeling I have? It feels like as though someone is watching me... something feels weird about tonight.

 

Matthew gets up, being a rather weak sleeper. Once he wakes up, he can't go back to sleep. He puts on blue jeans and a black shirt, and creeps out to the backyard. He inhales deeply, smelling the salty sea air.

 

Dispite the calming feel of the ocean's presence, Matthew can't help but feel unease.

 

Something somewhere was about to happen, he could feel it.
