We got our files! We will post here twice a week, more than likely alternating view points between the two main characters, Alice Lotus, a housecat, and Erren Noetis, a zebra pegasus. Both teens must cope with their gifts, find a way home, learn to trust and find out who they truly are.

6: Freedom!! ...Or Not...

I followed Aiden, hooded and docile for a while, planning my escape. “Miss Lotus, you are awfully quiet,” he observed.
            I stayed quiet. “Miss Lotus, you are not yourself this morning,” he remarked. I still remained quiet.
            “Miss Lotus-“I cut him off with a roundhouse to what I’d hoped was his stomach. He fell to the floor with a whimper. Huh, may not have been his  stomach… I slid the hood off and looked around. I was standing in a long, white corridor that I didn’t recognize at all. I wandered around a bit, ears on alert for any sound. The building had the feel of a large, rather empty hospital. Good thing, Aiden might need one.
            I heard frantic pawsteps behind me and took off “not again!” I thought to myself, running as fast as my paws could carry me. I skidded around a corner, almost losing my balance, very nearly slamming into another door. Only this one had a window.
            Looking into the small, hospital-esque window, I saw row upon row of unconscious furgirls.
            “Oh crap,” I thought to myself as I pushed the door open. I walked among the rows of girls, there had to be at least several dozen girls. I looked at the charts on the bed, hospital bed, and they were listed by name, ability, species, origin and destination. A majority of the girls under ability had the listing of “???”. The oddest, but most powerful creature I saw there was a zebra thing with wings. I read her chart several times, confused. “Heaven?” I asked allowed.
I kept walking around the room, looking at the girls, worried, confused, angry and scared. The girls lying in hospital beds were attached to machines, some monitoring there vital signs, others, making flashes and beeps that made no sense to me.
“What is all this?” I asked the air. “Why are all these girls here? Are they ill?”
“No, they are merely being trained and observed,” answered a deep voice behind me.
I nearly had a heart attack as someone walked up behind me and grabbed my arms. “Aw crap!”

  1. Wouldn't a Zebra Pegasus be like 30x larger than a house cat?
