Room 80

 “What is your name?” I ask. Which is the only thing that comes into my mind.

“I don’t have a name” she says.

“What about.... Beth?” again, the first name that comes into my head.

“I like that name”

“Good” I turn to the... limbless man on Polly’s back. “What about you?”

“I don’t have a name either” he says. I knew he was going to say that.

“Oh... what about Ben?”

“I like that” 

“Good” I look back at the door. I am now with, Beth, Ben, Polly and Billy. We are a very interesting group of people. I grab the wheel of the door and lock it off. I know that I am expecting a limbless person. I pull the door open and look in. On the floor at the back of the room is a limbless person in a black rag. It’s head looks so normal, with a pretty face, it is a woman’s face. She has short blonde hair and has arms, arms with bulging muscles. For some reason, I am not at all shocked by this. I put my head down and shed a tear, I feel so sorry for these people. Beth walks in.

“Hello, we’re not going to hurt you” Beth says and kneels down at her. She looks at Beth, and then at the others behind me. “There are others here like you, don’t be afraid” she smiles and Beth and shuffles forward a bit. “That’s right, come and join us, we’re going to get out of this place”

“I’d like that” she smiles at Beth again.

“What’s your name?”

“I don’t have a name” so many angry thoughts in my head. Why are these people like this? Who has done this to us? Why are we here? This is just... so wrong. I’ll have to stay strong for the others.

“What about... Emily?”

“I like that name”

“It’s a pretty name, like you are”

“Thank you”

“Come on then, we’ll have to move” I let the others out, and shut the door behind us. I follow Beth down the corridor, and we reach door number 65. 

The End
