  Harrison looked up at the 53 other faces staring down at him. He couldn't give up now. Not after all he's been through. He got up and looked his enemy right in the eyes. He shouted a battle-cry as he leaped on top of his enemy and beat him, almost to death. Walker sat there, wiping the dripping blood from his nose. He lets out a small sob. Deep down inside of him, Harrison felt some kind of guilt. The other Harrison, as he would call it. After all that Walker had done, ratted them out when they tried to escape, murdered one of the children trapped in here with them, Harrison knew he could not feel sorry for this person. Everyone had crowded around Walker, who was now sobbing. Michael had walked up to them and yanked Walker up off of the ground. He lifted Walker off of the ground, screaming at him. He threw Walker against the wall, knocking him out. Nobody is surprised by what Michael did. He's one of the main reasons they had gotten so far. They left the room and found the exit. Everyone immediately got excited. They were just about to make a run for the doors when abunch of guards appeared. These aren't your regular 'human' guards; these guards are basically giants. It takes about 6 people just to beat one, and there are thousands of them. Harrison glances at Michael, who is daring not to take his eyes off of the guards. "Weapons ready?" John asked. There were only few answers. He repeated the question this time louder. There were more replies. Harrison glanced around at the kids, adults, and teenagers around him. Caleb walked up to Harrison and handed him a spear and a few knives, keeping a handgun for himself. "Ready?" Michael asked. There were a few hoots and replies. Michael faced the crowd of people. "Not many people are going to get through this one. There will be sacrifices." He stopped as if he didn't know what to say next. "Good luck." were Michael's last words before turning to face the guards again. He then yelled "charge" as he sprinted toward the guards. John followed closely behind him, followed by Harrison and Caleb. The guards suddenly sprang to life, swinging at John and Michael. John moved out of the way swiftly, but Michael wasn't so swift. He got hit in the head, his blood spraying on the ground. He sat there, looking around as if brainless. The guard got ready to hit him again. John stared at them, not knowing what to do. Finally the guard hit Michael one last time, killing him. John was shocked. "Just keep running!" Caleb shouted. A guard jumped out at them, missing Harrison and Caleb but hitting a few other people that were behind them, most likely killing them. Harrison saw John in the distance wandering aimlessly into a crowd of guards. Harrison heard a horrible scream coming from the group of guards that John had just walked into. Harrison heard a few more screams from some kids behind him and Caleb. They finally arrived at the door, which was guarded by a guard. This guard was bigger than the rest. Like a video game boss. The guard turned toward them at stared at them. Jason ran up to them, covered in blood and trying to catch his breath. He looked up at the guard and almost passed out. "What now?" Jason asked. "We fight it, I guess." Caleb replied. They were just about to start fighting it when they heard a yell nearby. It wasn't a normal yell. It was more like a battle-cry coming towards them. It was Walker running straight at the guard in front of them. He jumped on it, slashing away with his dagger. He shouted something. Harrison listened closely. "Go in! Hurry! I'll distract it!" Walker yelled. Harrison had no reason to argue. He bolted through the door, followed by Caleb, then Jason. There was nothing in there. It was just a big, empty room. They waited for what seemed like the longest time. Minutes turned into hours. Finally, the screams stopped. They waited a few more hours just to be safe. They were sure that it was all over. They walked outside to see nothing but bodies. There was blood everywhere. All of a sudden, a helicopter started hovering over them. All three boys looked up at it. "What's going o-" Caleb was cut short by a gunshot. He fell to the ground, dead. Harrison and Jason took off running back to the door. More gunshots. Jason shrieked in pain. Harrison refused to look back. He ran toward the door. He was almost there. He made it. He stood at the door, blocking it. There was a strange smell in the room. Harrison started to cough. He couldn't take it anymore. He stepped outside, only to be greeted by 12 armed men with their guns pointed at him. He was shot dead.
