She was running with all her might, her eyes wild as her chest kept bouncing up and down , her brain synapses hyped up like a cluster bomb, firing up negative thoughts  like a machine bomb…she was lost, trapped, yet she could hear the music in the club…but where is it? how did she miss her way and why was the scar on her back itching so badly right now…

God i’m so dead. She whimpered stifling a cry.

She looked around, she was in another room, how would she get to the passage that she had come in from?

“Check her in that room” She heard one of the men say and something crawled up inside her tommy.

Please let this be a nightmare, please let me wake up, please God please!

She was soaked in her own sweat as she looked everywhere for a corner to hide, she found a hidden closet and she quickly ran into it, shutting the door behind her.

There was not a single cloth in the closet and the door had some openings as a design, from where she could see the two men entering the room with their guns . She placed a hand over her lips and nose to stop herself from breathing. she was afraid that even the slightest sound fo her breath would give her away.

They entered the room and put on the light, this was when she was able to see the room clearly

. It was like a room that was abandoned…but she stepped back into the darkness of the closet so that she wouldn’t be seen.

“Are you sure she’s here?” One asked the other.

“Yes, I saw her enter this place…” The other replied. They were still looking everywhere until their eyes rested on the closet and they exchanged a knowing look.

Sonia’s hands were curled into a fist, nails digging into her palm, she could feel the sweat drench her skin….as their footsteps sounded closer…

The door opened and before she could start kicking with quick powerful strokes at them, they dragged her out, she was pleading and begging on her knees ….the sweat had completely covered her body and she felt like her heart was going to explode.

“Please, I’m getting married soon, please I didn’t see anything, I wont report to the police, I beg of you please don’t kill me.”

“Sorry babe, orders are orders!” one of the men said before pointing the gun at her. when the bullet hit her on the shoulder, she could feel the paralyzing hurt assembling themselves like a pack of icy liquid metal all over her body…her body wracked with raw sobs and she shook like a leaf before collapsing to the ground.

. Fright consumed every cell in her body, swelling them with terror. She could feel her breathing subside as the door opened and the man….of her nightmares came in….before she died…

****** **** ***

She woke up immediately.

The cloth she was wearing clung to her every skin, she was soaked in her sweat. She could still feel her heart pressure as her brain scrambled desperately to make sure she was dreaming everything and she hadn’t been shot or wounded or….

Her eyes caught the wire-like stuff attached to her arm and then the green pyjamasshe wore ddin’t belong to her….

Damn! I wasn't dreaming!

She was on some bed in some room, the machine she used to see in movies which calways measured peoples heart pressure was on the table next to her….she was freaking out and the numbering was increasing…she had to relax because she didn’t want to create any attention….

Where am i? How come I wasn’t dead?

She tried to stand up but the pain in her shoulder intensified that she winced in pain…still she had to get up. Her arm was in a sling, attached to her shoulder.

 Slowly, she climbed down from the bed, the room was large and looked like an hospital room, an expensive hospital with the steup, the painting and the big screen on the wall….still something was off. This wasn’t really an hospital….hospitals don’t put art pictures on the wall.

She walked towards the window blind and drew the curtain apart….what she saw astounded her….

She could deduce that she was probably at the top floor of what seemed to be some sort of mansion or storey building, she could see mountains and fields all around her…they were so beautiful and so scary as if the place was located away from the rest of the world. The compound below had lots of flowers all around  and there were some cars at the side where she looked.

She could see some men at the gate…and her heart began to race again….she recognized one of them…the one that had shot her.

Oh God no no no! What do I do ? How do I escape this place?

She saw the metal stand on which her water bag was attached, she carried with her so it could support her as walked. She looked around for anything she could hurt anyone with. She knew if she was to leave this place, she would need some defenses. Looking around, she found some tweezers and some needles which she packed into the pocket of her pyjamas.

Slowly,  Sonia walked towards the door, as she put her hand firmly to the doorknob, she prayed quietly that it shouldn’t be locked and when she pulled it, she sighed happily as the door opened.

She walked slowly out of the room, with her water-bag-stand firmly in her grip, she stealthily shut the door after her. She was confronted with a flight of stair cases that lead to the floor and an elevator at the left hand side. Now she had another problem, which was the safest for her to take?

    Just to add spice to the beef, She should continue on her stealth mode, take the stairs. Let them find her absence in the room. She will be caught but cain needs to know that Sonia Anna Trista is a Trickster, and the he may have just bargain for a mountain of wahala in a girl's form... After living for centuries, he still behaves like a spoilt child. BTW how old is Sody???
