Room 65

So now according to Beth there are 2 more people to find. I look down the corridor. There are so many rooms though; I am assuming that all the others are dead and unable to move very far. We arrive at room number 65. I grab the wheel and lock it off. I step back and look in the room. On the floor is... another person without any legs. A young male with only one arm, he looks like he’s in his early teens and has short black hair. He coughs and looks up at us. That innocent look in his eyes penetrates into my brain. Oh the innocence.

“Hello” Beth says.

“Hello” he says very quietly. Beth walks into the room and kneels down to him, he flinches.

“There’s nothing to be afraid of. There are others like you that are the same” he looks behind Beth and at the others who are smiling at him. He smiles back. He shuffles forward and out of the room. We really are an interesting bunch of people. After they leave the room I shut the door. I start to walk ahead, then Beth stops and grabs my hand, I turn back to look at her.

“What is it?” I ask.

“We are now the only survivors, we need to get out of here now”

“Where is the exit?”

“Up... I see a sky... and lots of trees around us. The only way to get out, is by going up”

“Right” I turn back and look at the others. “Are you all ready?”

“Yes” they all say and smile.

“Good” time to escape this prison we have been living in. 

The End
