I sit on my bed, completely healed from my fights this afternoon and stare at my bunkmate. Shadows are all over our room and I am assuming its about two in the morning since the daylight simulator hasn’t even kicked on yet overhead. 

Jed is silently sleeping across from me and has barely moved a muscle since he settled in a few hours after I had “fallen asleep.” His chest rises with a breathe and he releases it through his mouth. His two pairs of issues sweats are on the floor beneath his bunk, but I know the pants he had been wearing earlier, the ones that contain my bloody napkin, are still on his body. 

After the fights had died down and people had begun getting ready for dinner and bed I made sure to keep my eyes on Jed at all times. I didn’t want to miss seeing if what he was gonna do with that napkin. I am praying it doesn’t get handed over to a Scientist because if it does, I am going to have to kill Jed. And probably Cameron and Jack, but definitely Cameron.

I am almost positive it is Jed that is tied to the Scientists but why would they want a napkin with someone of my blood on it? They had taken pints of it from me when they had been doing experiments. Its not as if anything has changed in the past two and a half years. 

Jed rolls on to his side, an action I have been waiting all night for. His right side is sticking in the air and I silently walk across the room and carefully extract the napkin. Except there is no napkin, its gone, and I have my hand in some strangers pants. 

A stranger whose eyes are staring into mine with about a million questions in them. I slowly withdraw my hand from Jed’s pocket and walk backwards towards my bed. 

“Uhh… You know I don’t mind having a pretty girls hands down my pants, but I was under the impression you didn’t like me. I’m thinking you had other motives besides  playing with my joystick?” Jed asks as he sits up and stretches his neck. “maybe you were after that napkin you saw me slip into my pocket earlier.” He tilts his head and his eyes zero in on my unmarred skin. “I see you healed yourself during your little stakeout.” 

“Well thats where you are wrong since obviously a Pyro does not possess any healing abilities.”  I look at him with a raised eyebrow. 

“And thats where you are wrong, if you think I am stupid enough to believe your a Pyro. Since we both know you are so much more.” He smirks and leans back against the wall. 

I stare at him with wide eyes. How could he know? What does he know? “Kyle…?”

Jed lets out a short sarcastic bark of laughter. “Please, that guy has no idea what you are capable of. And neither do the Scientists he is working with”

“Kyle is working with the Scientists?” My heart freezes in my chest. 

“Well….He thinks he is thanks to a little magic by Jack.” 

My heart is practically beating out of my chest now. “Who the hell are you?”

“I’m your brother.” Jack says from the doorway. 

~~~

“…..My brother? I don’t have a brother” I stare at Jack with concerned eyes, maybe he has gone crazy too. 

“Yes you do, you just don’t remember me. We are twins, but when you started making your stuffed animals dance, when we were five, mom and dad separated us. My abilities didn’t surface until after they had you locked up in the basement.” Jack moves farther into the room and leans against the wall facing both Jed and I. 

“I think I would remember if I had a twin brother.” I state sarcastically.

“Not if I didn’t want you to remember.” Jack’s eyes bore into mine. I just stare at him; his words are not making any sense. “The night you snuck out and got caught I was with you, but when you got nabbed I hid back in the bushes and waited to try and get you out. Except you didn’t even try to escape so I got worried maybe our ability didn’t work against the sealant. I followed the transport truck to the edge of the Box’s perimeter and right before you went in there I erased your memories of me in case they found out your twin brother was also abnormal.” 

“Why would you do that?” I ask, tears gather in my eyes. All these years I had been alone in here, unknowing that I had a brother on the other side of these stupid walls.

“So they wouldn’t expect me when I came to rescue you.” Jack states. 

“Is that why you are here? To rescue me?” I whisper, afraid my voice if going to crack. 

“I am trying to. Lily you aren’t alone anymore. I’m here for you.”

I am not alone. 

Wait….My name is Lily?
