"Kara Wray?" a uniformed man inquired, his female partner next to him. She had her hands clasped behind her back and looked at Wray like she was some sort of insect. Attached to his lapel was a small medal with the letters 'MP' etched into it. What would the military police want with me? was her initial thought.
"Yes?" she responded, suspicion thick in her voice. "What can I do for you?" She adjusted her beret slightly, reaching back to pat the bun of hair into perfection as she looked up into his face. She smoothed her own blue uniform again and raised a brow.
"You can comply, Specialist Wray," his partner said. His expression twisted into one of disgust as he continued for her. "You're under arrest for treason and consorting with the enemy. Hands behind your back now, Wray."
Shock rocked through her, her eyes widening as she understood the meaning. She quickly turned on her heel and ran, her military issued boots hitting the ground quickly and thudding with each step. Kara was practically locked inside of the base, she realized and swore loudly as she ran. She didn't do this, she thought over and over again. She knew treason meant absolute death.
"Stop! Wray, halt!" the woman was crying as she desperately tried to keep up with Specialist Wray. Her legs were pumping hard in such an effort, her partner only about a meter behind her.
Kara rounded a corner quickly, her bun slowly coming undone. Adrenaline pumped through her as she turned another quick corner. She froze when she saw the wall of fence in front of her.
"Shit," she said under her breath. She glanced back over her shoulder, wondering when the other soldiers would finally catch up. Kara pulled her dress jacket off and looked up at the wall in vain. She threw it to the side and carefully tried to climb up the rough surface of the wall. Halfway up, there was a sudden shout behind her.
"Wray!" the female officer screamed. "Get your ass off of there."
Kara heard the clomp of boots before she felt the rough hand of the officer pulling on her ankle. She let out a scream as she fell, her face meeting the pavement milliseconds later.
