Survival part 1 by Quincy Gordon! my name is not 1943. These guys won't let me change my name

We’ve all had those days; overslept again and as if running late for work for the second day in a row wasn’t bad enough, the car suddenly refuses to start.  You have to catch the bus. Then you remember it’s Sunday and the buses don’t run on Sundays. You get desperate so you call a friend for a ride only to get ignored by everyone on your contact list. You’re not even mad anymore; you already know you’re fired. You’ve given up. Fuck it. There’s no way a day like this can get any worse. Then you get kidnapped. That’s life. Dan and Nate were locked in a room, handcuffed with bags over their heads. Dan opened his eyes but only saw black. He moved his head before realizing he was tied up.  His confusion turned into fear as the sound of a door opening echoed through the room. “Well at least one is awake”, Dan heard as the bag was pulled off of his head.  Dan looked up and saw a lanky figure. His face covered by the darkness of the room they were in, all Dan could make out was the Man’s unsettling smile. “What is this”? Dan asked, trying to move his hands and legs. “Shut up”, the man responded as he pulled the bag off of Nate’s head. He slaps Nate who woke up instantly. “Stop! What’s going on!? I didn’t do it! Nate screamed as he budged trying to get free. “Shut up”, the man yelled again. “Congratulations gentlemen”, the man said as he stood up and smiled “You’ve both been chosen”. “Chosen for what” Dan asked. “Where are we?” “That’s not your concern” the man replied in an ominous tone. You should be more worried about where you’re going.” Nate hadn’t stopped pulling at the handcuffs since he was slapped awake. “Don’t bother trying to get free” the man said. “One of you will be able to leave here alive if you both co-operate. If you don’t, however, you’ll both die.” “Please, god please” Nate cries “You can have whatever you want. I have money. My parents have money! My girlfriend’s credit card number is 5526 4987 2654 3744! Her pin number is 1555! My parents are rich, I swear. My father is a lawyer. He won’t pay you if you threaten to harm me. He no longer claims me but I can take you to where he is! Please, I’m begging you…Please don’t rape me”. “I can promise you nothing sexual will be taking place in this room”, the man assured them. Nate sighed with relief “Thank god”. “Then what the hell do you want?” Dan asked. “I want you to put on a show.” Confused, Dan and Nate looked at each other. “You just said nothing sexual was going to happen!” Dan yelled. “You idiots” The man responded in an angry tone “Make the fans happy or die!” The man turned around and exited the room, slamming the door behind him. The lights came on. Nate turned to Dan “What the hell is going on? How did we get here?”  He asked. “We were kidnapped. How the hell else do you think we got here?”  “Do you know this guy?” What the hell does he want? Why would someone kidnap us?” “I don’t know!” Dan answered. “I’m just as confused as you are. Ok, this guy obviously wants us to do something. I just don’t know what he means by make the fans happy”. “I’m assuming someone’s watching us”. Nate suggested. “I mean there are cameras in here. “I doubt anyone is watching. Unless we’re on world star but even then, who would watch something like this?” Nate begins panicking again. “Somebody help me! Please get me out of here!” “I’m in here too, Dick”, Dan said in a hostile tone. “Oh right, someone please help us!” Nate yelled sarcastically. “Are you happy now?” Dan didn’t respond. He had turned his attention to a small box in the corner of the room. “I bet the key to getting out of here is in that box”. Nate looked at the box.  “Holy shit, you’re right. There’re probably instructions or something in it! Open it” Nate yelled. Dan stared back at Nate with a scowl. “What?” Nate asked, unassumingly. “How the fuck am I supposed to open the box?” Dan asked. It was at that moment that Nate remembered that people can’t open things when they’re handcuffed.  “Did he forget to free us”? Nate asked. A second later, the man reentered the room holding a machete. “Sir, I think you forgot to take the handcuffs off”. “Shut up!” The man yelled, obviously embarrassed. “Don’t try anything” Without lowering the blade, the man took the handcuffs off of each of them and exited the room again. Nate and Dan both got up and walked over to the mysterious box. Dan picked it up and slowly opened it. Inside the box were two knives and a note. Dan took the note and set the box back on the floor. He began reading the note “Congratulations gentlemen, you have both been chosen”. “Hey, that’s what that guy said to us earlier” Nate interrupted. Dan continued reading “Unfortunately, in order for either of you to return to your home, you must prove to me and the fans that you’re willing to do whatever you must to survive. This game serves as a way for me to rid the world of weakness.” “Skip to the last line” Nate interrupted again. “Ok” Dan answered. “Take these blades and fight to the death. The loser will be helping the world by ridding it of weakness and the winner will be able to return to his home.  Blah, blah, blah, don’t try to find another way out. It’ll only piss me off and once again, congratulations”. There’s a moment of silence as Dan and Nate make intense eye contact with each other. “Well I don’t want to kill anyone.” Nate said in a saddened tone. “He says if we don’t fight he’s going to kill us.” “He never mentioned that in the note!” “Well I’m assuming he will”. Nate takes a moment to think. “You’re right. You’re absolutely right.” They each pick up a knife and look to each other. “Are you ready?” asked Dan. “I’m ready” Nate answered frantically.  They closed their eyes and prepared for combat. “Come on” Dan yelled. “You come on!” Nate yelled back! The situation becomes increasingly more intense as the two men began breathing heavily. “Stop stalling bitch!” Dan yelled violently. Nate started to whimper. Dan opened his eyes and realized that Nate was covering his face and shaking with fear. Dan exhaled and dropped his knife. “I can’t do it.” Dan said as his knife hit the ground. Nate opened his eyes. “Oh thank god.  That was too close. I’ve never won a fight in my life. I thought you were going to kill me” Nate said laughing. He dropped his knife as well. Unaware that the man was still watching them through a see through window they sat down on the floor. The man smacked his hand against the window, yelling in anger. “So what’s your name” Dan asked. “What?” “Your name... If we’re going to die together, we might as well get to know each other”. “My name’s Nate, what’s yours?” “My name’s Dan…or Danny, Daniel; they all work”. “Can I call you Danny boy” Nate asked. “I will jam that knife sideways up your ass” Dan answered jokingly. They shared a brief moment of laughter. “I guess this is just one of those days huh?” Nate asked. “You’re telling me!?” Dan said with a huge smile on his face. “I don’t even remember getting kidnapped, do you?” “I remember everything” Nate answered. “You do? What happened?” Nate got comfortable “Ok so this is fucking ridiculous. My car breaks down in the middle of the high way like a week after I bought it right? So I’ve been taking my brother’s bike to work. This morning I woke up late. I must have slept on my phone and didn’t hear the alarm go off, whatever. That’s where the bullshit started. So I jump up. I can’t shower, I can’t brush my teeth. It’s just going to be a stinky day, whatever. My brother is gone and took the bike with him. I have to be at work in eight minutes! I was late yesterday! My cunt boss already doesn’t like me. I’m certain; I’m going to get fired”. “Wow” said Dan as Nate stopped to catch his breathe. “So where do you work?” “I deliver pizza” Nate answered. “That’s where I know you from! You delivered to my place a few times! “Holy shit, I have delivered to you before! You were the one that didn’t tip!” Dan stopped smiling. “You didn’t have to bring that up.” Dan said in a serious tone. “Relax; I’m just busting your balls. Anyway, back to my story. So I’m...” Suddenly the man barges into the room. He has a furious look on his face. “Why haven’t you done what I asked!?” the man yelled at the top of his lungs. “Sorry, we just don’t have it in us” Nate answered. “Yeah” Dan added “I don’t know what else to tell you. The thought of stabbing someone makes me cringe”. If you don’t fight, I will shoot you both!”. “That sounds better than getting stabbed” Dan exclaimed. “Fine, let’s see how long you can survive without food or water!” furious, the man storms out of the room. Nate and Dan stare for a moment. “So anyway” Nate continues. “I walk out the door at the exact moment my neighbor is leaving. She offered me a ride. I thought, thank god. I’ll be 15 minutes late instead of 30.”  “Well that’s good” Dan interrupted. “Not really” Nate responded “Getting into the car with her is the last thing I remember before waking up here.” “Oh” Dan said is a depressing tone “Was she at least hot?” “Yeah, she was” Nate answered smiling “She was kind of weird though. She kept snakes for pets and shit”. Dan’s jaw dropped “You went into her house and she had snakes?” Dan asked, already disgusted. “No” answered Nate “My brother used to go in there. He would talk to her every once in a while and hang out with her, you know how guys get when they want to have sex with someone. He told me, he went in there one night and sat down on the couch and a big ass snake crawled out from underneath it.” Dan gasped “That is just disgusting. People who keep snakes as pets aren’t right in the fucking head. Snakes are the rapists of the animal community” Nate chuckles “She fucking stunk too”. Nate looked down and began reminiscing. Dan looked around the room and smiled at the cameras. “It’s a shame we’re never going to see our families again” Dan said casually. Suddenly a song started playing. “What the hell is that?” Dan asked looking around. “Oh shit, that’s my girlfriend calling” Nate answered reaching into his back pocket. “Suddenly getting kidnapped doesn’t seem so bad” “What the fuck!” Dan yelled in anger and confusion but mostly anger. “What” Nate asked defensively “It was just a joke” “No, you have your phone!” It was at that moment that Nate realized kidnap victims can use their phones to escape. “Oh yeah…I guess he didn’t find it…and people said I was weird for keeping my cellphone in my back pocket”. Nate looks at the phone and sees that it’s his boss calling. “Dude, call the police!” Dan commanded. “Hold on” Nate responded “I have to take this. It’s my boss”. Nate answers the phone. “Hello? Boss?  Listen, I know I didn’t show up for work today but I have a good reason. I got kidnapped. I swear to god… No, I’m not lying this time…No; I wasn’t lying last time either… What? You say I’m fired? I promise I got kidnapped. I’ll prove it to you as soon as I escape. What? You say you found marijuana in my locker? Well it wasn’t mine! What? You say you got me on tape stealing pizza?  How could I have possibly stolen four boxes of pizza when I’m taking a bike to work? What? You say how did I know it was four boxes that were stolen if I didn’t steal them? Well because I also noticed they were gone! What? You say you saw what I said about you being married to an 18 year old Filipino hooker?” Dan grabs the phone and hangs it up! “Why would you do that?” Nate asked surprised at Dan’s rudeness. “Call the fucking police!” Dan demanded! Nate started thinking to himself. “I can’t.” “What do you mean you can’t?” “I can’t call the police. There may be a warrant out for my arrest”. “Then call your parents” Dan suggested. “I can’t, they’ll call the cops.” Dan snatched Nate’s phone and dialed 911. “Hello 911?” Suddenly the man barged into the room swinging a machete and yelling threats and homophobic slurs like a street preacher. Dan and Nate both screamed and scattered. They were being chased around the room. The man turned his attention away from Nate and chased Dan. On instinct, Nate picked up one of the blades and jumped on the man’s back. He started stabbing him in the shoulder but wasn’t strong enough to pierce the skin. Dan punched the man knocking him out instantly. They all fell to the ground. Realizing he was unconscious, Dan and Nate looked at each other both thinking the same thing. They both got up and exited the room. They found themselves walking in a dark hallway, Nate following closely behind Dan. They made their way through the hall until they got to a closed door. Dan slowly pushed the door open and the beam from the sun shined into the building. They were finally outside.  “We did it!” Nate cried “We’re free”! “We fought so hard to get here” Dan added as the two hugged. Suddenly they heard a loud yell “Hey!” “What the hell was that?” They looked back and saw their kidnapper. The man was sprinting down the hall at full speed. The disturbing smile that was previously on the man’s face had twisted into a look of rage and intense sexual arousal. Dan and Nate screamed as he got closer. “Close the fucking door” Dan yelled. They both pushed the door shut, locking it. The man started beating the door and yelling as loud as he could. His yelling turned into growling and that turned into laughing. Dan and Nate watched in horror until the man finally gave up. They both let out sighs of relief. “I think it’s over.”  Nate said finally calming down. He stopped trembling. Within minutes, there were police everywhere. Two of the officers left the building and approached Dan and Nate who were waiting at one of the cars. “So you say that the guy who kidnapped you was still inside?” asked one of the officers. “Yes! He’s in there right now!” The two officers looked at each other both confused. “We checked every corner of that place. There’s no one in there.” The look on Nate’s face, upon hearing that was similar to the look you get when you’re in a deep sleep and suddenly wake up with a severe case of the shits. He collapsed onto Dan and passed out. Still holding Nate up, Dan turned his head and saw the man dressed in a police uniform getting into one of their cars. He smiled at Dan before flipping him off and driving away.
