Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 24

It was twelve thirty at night. I slowly slid open the door of our little hiding spot. I could see some guards on the top level with flashlights. I shut the door and began to sneak around. I dashed from one end to the next and headed up the stairs. The doors to all the … Continue reading Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 24

Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 23

Two days had gone by since Jaden helped me escape. He would come in and out every day, presumably to sneak into the cafeteria to get snacks. Particularly on the second day, I was sitting in the quiet when Jaden suddenly popped into existence. I jumped. “Geez, J!” I exclaimed. “Sorry,” Jaden responded, “I’m not … Continue reading Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 23

Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 22

I wasn’t sure how long I’d been here. I was losing track of time. Whether it was because we were underground, or I was simply not given the freedom to see the sun rise and fall. I was slowly growing weary. I longed for the fresh breeze against my face, I longed for the miles … Continue reading Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 22

Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 21

I heard rattling at the door. I sat up. Three guards came into the room. “Come with us” the leader ordered firmly. I eyed them suspiciously. I was even more hesitant to follow them, since last time I got sticked. Needless to say, it was very painful. Then, the leader forcefully grabbed my arm and … Continue reading Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 21

Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 20

I pulled my eyes open. My head throbbed, and I still felt weak. I found a tray of food on the floor above the cot. Curiously, it wasn’t gruel. It was more like a school cafeteria lunch: not great, but better than expected. However, looking at it made me feel sick, so I turned over. … Continue reading Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 20

Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 19

Ears rang and my head spun. After a few seconds of subsiding, I opened my eyes. I was in a dim, barely lit room, surrounded by metal. There was nothing but a platform that could barely qualify as a bed, and a door with a small window. I kept up and ran to the window … Continue reading Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 19

Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 18

My head began to clear as the echoing of bullets ringing in my ears. I sat up suddenly. Ayanna was still standing with me. “Take it easy, girl!” she exclaimed, “You took a pretty nasty hit to the head!” "I can't take it easy when those freaks are blowing up the whole town!" I snapped.  … Continue reading Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 18

Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 17

When I came back from my evening run, Luana was chipping away at the ice on the stairs with a shovel.  “Whatcha doin?” I asked.  Luana jumped and slipped on the stairs. I caught her just in time before she could hit her bottom on the ice.  “Don’t scare me like that Sonic!” She exclaimed.  … Continue reading Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 17

Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 16

Winter was quiet and calm. The wheat fields were now barren, leaving eerie empty space. However, it was made up for by an unusually consistent snowfall. Since we lived by the coast, we rarely got snow, and if we did, it wasn’t cold enough to stick. But it did this year. There was a large … Continue reading Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 16

Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 15

It took all night to assemble a team to put a sheet of wood over the window. A few heads were turned when they saw Sonic in my arms (I had wrapped him up in a blanket to avoid being seen), but not enough concern was raised to speak up about it. Finally, at six … Continue reading Re:Connect – Luana Dockinson {Part 1} – Chapter 15
