February 12, 2014 9 comments

It’s week 7 of Kerrie’s Chain Writing Game, and this week we see Hugh escaping from an “inescapable” prison (and the noose)! Where will he go? What’s the deal with Sarah and her insanely fast car?

Catch up with the story by clicking on the little blue froggy. My third contribution is below.

We’re seriously running out of time so I’m going to reluctantly speed things up a bit.

Hugh threw a grenade at the front door of the Senator’s house as Sarah took the rifle and found a vantage point nearby. The door exploded into fragments and Hugh ran inside. Halfway to the Senator’s study a guard appeared, weapon drawn.

Silhouetted against a window, the guard’s head was no match for Sarah’s bullet as she shot him from across the road.

Hugh burst into the Senator’s study  to find him throwing papers into the open fire.

“Hold it, you wife-killing bastard!” snarled Hugh.

The Senator froze.

Outside, with a screech of tyres, Evan and Jeffrey pulled up, murder in their eyes.

Back on the road, Hugh and Sarah hurtled past a junction.

“Shit!” swore Sarah. “Cops.”

Hugh glanced behind and saw the ominous flashing lights, distant yet but coming closer.

“What the hell kind of souped-up car are they driving?” exclaimed Sarah. “We’re doing well over a hundred!”

In the car behind, Jeffrey grinned at Evan.

“Keep goin’, we’ve nearly got ‘em!”

Their radio hissed. “All cars, fall back, the FBI has this one.”

Jeffrey flipped off the radio and grabbed a shotgun from the back seat. Up ahead, Hugh pulled the gun from under the seat and rolled down the window.

It’s week 7 of Kerrie’s Chain Writing Game, and this week we see Hugh escaping from an “inescapable” prison (and the noose)! Will he get out? Where will he go?

Catch up with the story by clicking on the little blue froggy. My first contribution is below.

Hugh knew how lucky he’d been, getting assigned to this cell. According to the plans he’d found, there were only three cells in the prison which backed onto the old sewerage system, this being one.

It had taken him months to work the mortar from between the concrete blocks, using careful modifications to his prison-issue toothbrush. Though his teeth were now rotting, he was out of his cell!

He lingered a moment, hearing Kurt and Jack panicking in his cell and smiled. Maybe they’d get fired. Scum.

Hugh crawled down the cramped tunnel, taking the turnings he’d memorised from the plans.

Jadir watched as the ships disintegrated. One of them, spewing black smoke, spun overhead, skipped off the top of the remains of the Wall and hurtled towards the fleeing figures of Camilla and Hamis. Jadir turned his back on the scene.

“What now?” he asked Eliya.

Eliya was staring at his eyes, the bright blue glow slowly fading.

“You truly are the chosen one!”

“Did you ever doubt it? What’s next? Let’s finish this.”

“This way,” replied Eliya, still awed. “Over that hill,” she pointed south, “is the fortress of the Ezreet. We finish this now.”

(Heh heh – I hope this is OK, I hit “publish” instead of “preview”. You should have heard me swearing 🙂 )

“You are the one. The ancient texts spoke of your coming. The Ezreet will fall at last  – this is your destiny!”

“Destiny? I just wanted to see what was on the other side of the wall. This is too much!” Jadir turned and ran back the way they had come.

“Wait!” shouted Eliya, chasing after him.

Jadir ran out of the cave to be confronted by a Terror Bird – it screeched and attacked. Jadir screamed, thrusting his hands out and watched, incredulous, as bolts of light shot from his fingers. The Terror Bird disintegrated with an astonished squawk.

“Now you understand,” said Eliya.

Jadir edged closer to the rope ladder and looked up to see a woman looking down at him. She was gesticulating, urging him to climb out of the pit, while keeping a wary eye on the two predators.

Jadir began to climb. As he reached the top he felt warm liquid spray across his back – the bear had ripped the bird’s head off, and was now moving toward the girl. She fished in a belt pouch and threw powder into the bear’s face. It gave a surprised growl, spun around and ran into a tree.

Jadir and the girl ran off through the woods.

He’s Behind You – episode 25

“Uncle Victor? It’s me, Ben.”

“Ben? How are you, my boy? How’s your mum?” came the reply.

“I’m not so good, Uncle. I’m at work and there are these Botanical Industrial Units…”

“Biological Infiltration Units? I didn’t know you were cleared.”

“They’re loose,” continued Ben. “They’re trying to kill…”

“Give me that!” snapped Kelly, switching to speaker-phone. “Victor? We need to reach the kill switch. People are dying.”

“Excellent!” chortled Victor. “They work, then.”

“Please, Uncle!” shouted Ben.

“The building is sealed. This is an excellent test!”

“Not any more,” said Kelly. “We broke a window.”

“What?” screamed Victor. “Okay. Here’s what you need to do.”
