Previous: Chapter One – Part One
I woke up the next morning, or what felt like the next morning in a bright, white room.
My memories were slowly forming in the back of my head when I realized I was no longer in the cave on the beach.
Had they found us? Was my immediate thought. The room I was now in reminded me far too much of the Darose, Zendo facility – only less upscale. There was an odd flicker from the light overhead that buzzed for far too long.
I glanced down. I still had my clothing on so that seemed like a good sign – maybe.
I blinked and scanned the space around me.
There was a large window to my left. The curtains were closed but a small stream of white light encased with slowly moving dust had managed to free itself from the drapery.
Two thin white blankets were nestled over my lap that I slowly peeled back. I pushed my legs off the side to the floor. As I attempted to move a wave of dizziness came upon me. The world tilted to the left and I followed it.
I heard my mouth release a sharp yelp as I threw my body weight into the side of the bed frame.
The walls were probably built thin incase something like this happened. It was only a second after that the doors to the room burst open and two men descended upon me, taking me by both sides.
“No, wait,” I heard myself say and I gently placed back into the bed.
“Easy, Ms. Liu,” said the dark-haired man on the left, “We got you.”
“No, you don’t understand…”
Their shadows had closed in around me. I tried to pull away but found the attempt useless.
“Sara,” A low voice rose into the air.
For a moment I thought my brain was playing tricks on me.
“Sara,” The voice spoke again, this time it appeared irritated.
I turned in the direction of the door, where the voice was coming from.
