The escapist

 I woke up in the exact same place, but all the plastic that had suffocated me a moment ago was lay down next to me. I got up and wondered what had happened.

So there’s a kid. Lucky midget is normal. His name is Dylan. He was born in Miami, and always liked running, he wanted to participate in the Olympics from the age of 12. He had a happy life. Mum, Dad, a happy family. But he was always superstitious he dreaded his 13th birthday, and he should have because that’s when it all started.

He was going to go to Thorpe park for his birthday, he had always wanted to, but that was in England, and he would have to go by plane and there was no way his parents would agree to that.

However on his birthday, his dad woke him up in the morning and promptly told him to pack his bags, he was going to Thorpe Park.

A few hours later, they got on the plane. And that’s when Dylan noticed something was wrong. The plane was almost empty, there were like seven people on the plane to Gatwick which could seat 80. But Dylan was in no position to complain; and about what? The plane felt too lonely for him? Anyway in minutes they were airborne. Then things got stranger.

All seven people on the plane started to look at him spontaneously. It was enough to make him go slightly in sane, but instead, he focused on Super Mario. Yuck. He had always hated Mario, but it occupied his mind and the few hours went in no time. Before he noticed, the “fasten your seatbelt” sign flicked on. He fastened his seatbelt ass the game turned off, but that was the worst thing he could have done.

All the other people on the plane then unfastened their seatbelts and got up. They were all wearing identical suits and walked towards him, then something behind him grabbed his mouth, then the nearest person produced a gun out of nowhere, Dylan winced and closed his eyes, then he felt a burning pain then nothing.

My story starts from me waking up and feeling like I was in a cage. I was. My head was pounding and, I could barely move my legs. Slowly, memories came flooding back about people all trying to get me, in a strange place I didn’t understand, being bundled into sack. Then running, I could remember running, as fast as I can then pain and nothing.

As I was piecing together my memories I slowly came to terms with my surroundings. I was in a sphere, which seemed to by floating on top of some water. Net to me there was another one. In it there was a girl banging on the wall with her fists in her underwear. She was called Alex. Don’t ask me how I knew; all I was thinking of is what any 13 year old guy would be thinking of with and almost naked chick in front of them.  I started to blush when I looked down and noticed I was only in my boxers.

I couldn’t hear anything. The edge of the pool I was floating on seemed miles away. I tried to get up then I noticed that there was a cut going all the way down the outside of my legs. It was like someone or something had opened my up the stitched me back together, literally. Eventually I managed to get up and stand, I tried to move my globe forward, but I had no luck. The girl seemed to be saying something to me but I couldn’t tell; I said I couldn’t hear anything.

I was just figuring out how to walk when there was a terrific bang and I was flung away from the girl at such speed almost passed out. The edge of the pool rapidly flew towards m and I knew if I hit that I would be crushed.

Franticly, I tried to burst the plastic globe, I kicked, punched, but nothing worked, then I tried my teeth; success! There was now a hole in the globe, but that was at the bottom. Slowly, it began to fill with water. Sh**, that was stupid, I was now going to drown. There was nothing I could do, apart from turn the globe around. So that is what I tried. Yes it worked. No more water was coming in.

Then I realized that air was coming out. I got to the edge of the pool, when half the air was gone. I tried to enlarge the hole, but it didn’t end it would all end before it even started. I lay down and tried to get my nose out of the hole, but it didn’t work. I was going to die in this strange place, without ever knowing anything. I closed my eyes and made one last ditch effort at getting out, but it didn’t work, and I slowly stopped breathing, I saw a face above me…


I took in my surroundings .i was in a room, but one of the walls opened into the giant swimming pool. In the far corner there was a door. I was starting to feel a bit freaked out as reality started to dawn. I was in a strange place, (nearly) naked, all on my own, with no idea of what the future held. The more I thought about it the more I freaked out; what was on the other side of that door: Was there civilization? Was there evil? I was doing a pretty good of driving myself utterly insane.

I was now so scared that I just wanted to run, I want to the door, opened it and saw a huge hallway with doors on each of the sides seeming to stretch almost miles back. This scared me. It made me want to Run.

The End
