The Abduction part 4
Max walked to me and said "don't worry Louise Frank will be fine, it's just a dart." I turned and said "I am so sorry Max I should have stopped him from reaching the cafeteria and bought him in to the teachers lounge with us." Max smiled and said "if you did we would all be lying on the floor out cold right now, I am actually glad you didn't to be honest." I just stood there with my head facing the floor and placed my hands over my face, I couldn't bare to think that I didn't protect him, then Phoenix gabbed my hands and lowered them and said "if you feel bad about this then do something about it." This actually shocked me I never thought Phoenix could be so blunt, I looked back and noticed Frank was now female with long purple hair, it brought a flashback of the guard who carried the girl to the showers with the exact same hair I decided to say nothing. Max then went to pick Frank up to take him now her to the nurses office, but as Max went to pick her up, but almost fell to the floor from lack of adrenaline and exhaustion, I walked up and said "I can take her and you show me where to go, it's the least I can do." I got a few glares off some of the other girls but I guessed they where thinking of doing it.
Once I got to the nurses office Max then started to blush slightly and asked if I had some spare clothes? I turned back and said "sure thing Max but are you sure that they will fit Frank? Max looked at me, then turned to frank and said "they should do, can you go quickly please? The sleeping darts effects may wear off at any time now." I wasted no time and ran to the dorm and was instantly surrounded by girls asking me why there where gun shots going off? I took a deep breath and said "There where some guards who where going to kill all of us once the experiment was complete to avoid the outside world knowing and the other guards where against this decided to make a rebellion against it, the fighting was in the cafeteria and the rebels where loosing quite badly, then Frank took one of the dart guns and took the teachers keys to get around them and helped the rebels by shooting some of the other guards, this made the other guards avert their gaze and target Frank giving the rebels an opening to take the rest of the guards out." Once I finished I ran to my room and grabbed a school uniform, whilst grabbing this I heard all the girls gossiping to each other about what's happened, I just ran straight out and went back to the nurses office where I saw Max standing there with an older woman looking over Frank, I first thought it was Mrs Lynch and was getting ready to take my revenge on her when I noticed in the corner of the room, Mrs Lynch out cold, possibly dead with multiple darts in her neck, I coughed to get their attention and they both turned around, Max here are the clothes for Frank, if your need anything else just give me a shout, I went to leave when the woman placed her hand on my shoulder, your Louise aren't you? I turned around and said "yes, yes it is, I am Louise Mctavish, and may I ask who you are please? The woman smiled and said I am Max's mother I am one of the Directors of this operation and I have seen what you have been doing, and all I have to say is…" I braced myself for an absolute scolding, "… thank you for what your good work in here, you have helped defend a guard from an escapee and stopped to much larger men from trying to rape another person, I am happy we were lucky enough to have you as a student here." I blushed and said "well… I just did what any other student would do in their position." Max's mum laughed and said "trust me there have been 5 attempts of escape and you're the only student who helped the guard instead of the student, as for the raping, there has been a fair few of them, we think the substance we released in the school must effect the mind of some students, we are looking into this at the moment and trying to see if we can get rid off this effect as soon as possible."
After a few minutes of talking I noticed Frank starting to toss and turn a bit so I decided to leave and let Max and Frank be alone, Max's mother followed me and pulled me to one side, "look Luke I would like you to keep a very close eye on Frank I feel he might be targeted by other students after you telling the girls in the dorm about what happened." I felt sick almost immediately and said "I am truly sorry about that its just I was in a hurry and wanted them out of my way so I told them and I" I was cut off by Max's mum who said "don't worry I am going to reward Frank for his bravery in front of the school anyway, I think he deserves it, all that he has been through, but still I think you should keep a close eye on him and make sure no one tries to harm him in any way." I smiled and said jokingly "not a problem, colour sergeant Mctavish at your service." Max's mum started laughing and said "you British and your humour it's priceless and rubbish."
Once we went our separate ways I was grabbed by Phoenix who slammed me to the wall and said "did you blab to them girls in the dorm?!" I was ready to slam her in to the floor but she then let go and said "only kidding! We were going to tell them but seeing as you have already told them it's saved us the bother, were all going to have a pyjama party if you want to come, I smiled and said "sure got nothing else on my to do list, besides I need to learn how to be more feminine anyway." Phoenix laughed and said "ok be there at 9pm sharp" she then walked away and I was here on my own with nothing to do, so I walked to cafeteria and helped the guards take the new students to the drama hall where they would be examined and have their mind altered to believe they where always students at this school, whilst helping one up I noticed she still had hold of the pistol, I moved to her other side cautiously and she then lifted the gun to my face and said "move and I will shoot you… this brought some bad memories back from back in the UK and I slammed her into the floor and took her pistol, you still have memories of being a guard do you? I got no response, she just laid there blankly staring in to space, I kneeled down and checked her pulse, I could tell she was alive just out cold because her pulse was normal, I then picked her up and laid her on a bed and looked at the pistol. "Hmm I think I might keep this, it may come in handy if any of them guards try and be stupid again, I released the magazine and too my shock they were live rounds, not darts… I pulled the slide back and caught the loose bullet then dismantled the gun and kept the firing pin making it useless, I then handed it to the guard and said "here one of the guards still had her memory and was going to shoot me." The guard looked at the gun and said "where's the firing pin?" I pulled it out of my pocket and said "for safety measures I think it's best disposing of this in case a student accidently comes across the pistol and try's to go Rambo in the school." The guard laughed and said "don't worry these guns will be taken back to HQ and be dismantled for spare parts, but you can keep the firing pin as a momentum to remind of this day. I smiled and said "you know something, that's a good idea I might do that." Once all the work was done some of the guards came up and thanked me for helping them out and handed me a small pen I looked at it and noticed it wasn't a proper pen but a zip gun that uses darts, one of the guards came up and said "we are giving this to you as a thing to help you as a last resort, just double click the button on the top to fire the dart, but be aware this has only one use and will break straight afterwards so only use it if you or your friends lives are in danger." I thanked them all and went to my room to relax for a bit.
After a few hours of sleep I was woken up by Jasmine who told me that Frank was awake and well I smiled and said "that's good news, do you want to come with me and see her?" Jasmine paused and said "her?" I sat up and said "yeah, he was hit by a dart so most likely will be female now." Jasmine stood there and thought it through a for a second she then said "good point, I will wait till the ceremony and introduce myself, right now she will be too stressed to see any new people." I smiled and went out the dorm, as soon as I left the door Phoenix walked up and said "hey Louise, Frank is fine now thankfully, and the ceremony will be taking place in 20 minutes so make yourself look nice for her" I smiled and walked back in to my room and looked through the clothes they provided, to my surprise there was a nice dress in there and some high heeled shoes to match, I giggled and muttered to myself "they think of every occasion don't they." So I did my hair up and got myself ready, I was surprised still that I knew how to do all this because as a boy I wouldn't have been able to make myself look all pretty and ready like this. As I got to the hall I noticed Phoenix and her friends where dressed up aswell as Jasmine and Rosie, I joined them and smiled as Frank walked out and received his two awards, one being the high tech helmet the guards have and the other being a medal for bravery, as she was given them the whole hall went up in cheers, the few boys who were left where also cheering and shouting praises to Frank, I decided to step aside and her older friends shower her in praise, I walked off back to my room and got changed back in to my normal clothes and decided to have a walk around to my relaxing room to deafen myself with J-pop some more, when I saw two boys drag Frank in to the room, I walked up slowly and heard Frank scream for help, I placed my phone and other bits on the floor and composed myself, I calmly walked in and said "stop what your doing or else!" the larger boy walked towards me and said "or else what?!" I grinned to the fact that he gave me an invitation to kick his arse and I replied "or else this!" I ran at him launched my fist in to his gut and used my other hand to chop his Adams apple with force causing his to black out. The other boy in a motion of panic ran behind Frank and put a Swiss army knife to her throat and said "Don't move or I will cut her throat!!" I was ready to break this boys neck but before I could get close enough I saw Frank lean back and head butt the boy in the gut making him stumble back and bash his head on the wall. I went to Frank and took off the bindings and removed the shirt they gagged her with, I could tell that she was traumatised by this so I hugged her and said "there, there, it's over now, she started to calm down and looked up at me I smiled and said "Are you alright now?" the girl was still distraught, which is something you would expect and she said "I-I think so, I decided to introduce myself and help Frank to her room as we got there Frank wiped the tears from her eyes and said "thank you Louise thank you so much!" I hugged her and said "if you ever need me just shout." I then left her to get some rest.
The next day I got up and noticed it was 5:50am, I sneaked out and went to the showers and got ready for another day, as I got in to the cafeteria I was the only one again, I got my usual and Jasmine was soon to follow getting the same as me for a change, as we talked about some stuff the cafeteria slowly filled up and after 20 minutes or so I saw Frank, I felt it was best to avoid her and let her interact with her real friends but I kept and eye on her see if she was ok when I seen Max I thought to myself "ohh good its Max she might feel a bit better now."
But soon as Max was next to her Frank completely broke down, I watched on in confusion as Max moved back and forth, and Rose was asking him to move back and forth as Frank was close to tears, I wanted to intervene it almost seemed like Rose was suffering with Androphobia which is the fear of men, I sat there and watched as some of them started to laugh at Frank for this, this really began to infuriate me that people would laugh at something this serious! I walked out and went in to the gym to let the anger out on the punch bag in the corner, "don't waste that energy Louise it's pointless you will only build it back up." Said Max's mum who walked up beside me, "Trust me Ma'am, if I don't hit this thing I will end up hitting a guard or someone who irritates me." Max's mum then pulled out a small machine, about the size of a match box, here place your finger on it for 3 seconds, I took a deep breath to calm down and done as she said, as I placed it on there I felt a pin prick, and I pulled back, and said "what on earth is that thing?!" Max's mum looked at the device's screen and said "that's odd your testosterone levels are the same as a girls, so why are you so boyish all the time?" I laughed and said "isn't it obvious? My mind and soul are male still, the only thing you guys changed is my shell, unless you can alter that, I am still the British Marine cadet with anger issues." Max's mum laughed and said "you have a point there, carry on with your anger management." And she walked out, I carried on beating the life out of the punch bag until I was either calm, or exhausted.
Later that day I sat in my usual spot, but there was no sign of Jasmine, Rosie or Frank and her friends, after a few minutes, Frank and her friends walked in, I watched as the entire cafeteria went silent apart from one arsehole who wanted to act tough in front of everyone he walked up to Max and tried to look big by saying "I am right by her, what are you going to do about it?!" I stood up and got ready to teach this bastards head off, but got sat down by Max's mother who said "I want Max to handle this one; it will be the best way to restore Frank's faith in men, I reluctantly sat back down and watched as the boy shouted at Frank "hey bitch what's your little mate going to do about me eh? Max stood his ground as the boy faced the rest of the school showing off how much of a bully he was, I was dying to snap him in to pieces but had to hold it in, I turned around to see if Max's Mother was still there but like some strange Houdini trick she had vanished in to thin air… "SEE THESE GUARDS ARE TOO SCARED TO DO ANYTHING ANYMO" the boy then fell to the floor with a dart sticking out of his neck, I noticed Max sliding his pistol back in his holster and that was the end of that, as I walked out I overheard one of the other boys saying.
"If that was me I would of just cracked that dick head of a guard and slapped that bitch senseless, I stopped and waited for him to come online with me, I tapped him on the shoulder and indicated to him to follow me, I took him to the corner by the reception where it was empty and he said "so what do you want then bitch?" at this point I was going to shout him senseless but I realised that actions speak louder than words, I turned to him and landed 3 fingers just under his sternum to stop him breathing, I then grabbed his throat and said "look here mate I don't know who the fuck you are but if you speak badly about my friends and I hear it again I will kill you, and I am not fucking kidding, understand?!" sadly my promise fell on deaf ears because as I walked away he said "is that all you've got bitch?" I decided that was the final straw, I slowly walked up to him and grabbed him by the face, I began punching him in the stomach over and over, within about 1 minute I had managed to land 20 full bodied punches to his stomach and he was only just conscious, I let him fall and he coughed up a bit of blood on my shoes, "I guess you wont learn." I muttered as I picked him up and threw him towards a guard, I watched as the guard started shouting at him and punching him thinking that he wanted to start a fight, I looked down at my watch and realised that it was getting closer to the little sleep over, so I ran to the gym and quickly punched the bag for a few minutes, but for some reason afterwards I just sat on the floor sobbing, I couldn't understand it I was upset for no apparent reason and then it hit me, I looked at the calendar on my phone and today was the day my great grandmother died I then put the picture of a cross on my phone and prayed five times and I felt a weight off my shoulders.
Later that evening I got to the classroom and knocked on the door, "ohh hi Louise you are the second person here." Said Phoenix in a happy little voice, I walked in still with the thought of my great grandmother still hanging over my head, I wanted to shake it for just tonight but found it very hard, until… "Hi Luke how are you feeling? Said Jasmine who pretty much appeared out of nowhere, I started to tell her about the stuff that's went on in my life, and she paused for a second… "Luke, come here!!" said Jasmine who hugged me and cheered me up, I don't know why, but anytime I am with Jasmine sadness is an thing she doesn't know, if she is with anyone she makes them happy, even when they are sad, lonely or too the point of a breakdown. A bit later on almost everyone had arrived apart from Frank I went and spoke to Phoenix and asked if she was ok? Phoenix smiled and said yes, and thank you for saving her, she told me about it earlier on and how to pretty much beat one of the boys out cold in 3 punches, I laughed and said "well as a boy in the UK I had a lot of experience in martial arts and training in the Marine cadets so I could do quite a lot of self defence techniques aswell as some offence techniques if I have to make the first blow."
As I was in mid conversation I heard a knock on the door, I decided to take a step, as I stepped back I heard Phoenix shout "its open!" and as it slowly opened I saw Frank walk in, as he entered the first thing she said was "Louise?!" Phoenix acted surprised and said "oh so I guess you two know each other, I guess I don't have to make a presentation then, I stood there and said "hope your feeling better today, by the way I never got your new name?" Phoenix jumped in and said "oh yeah that's right! we haven't sorted you a new name!" Frank smiled and said "you can call me violet."
