She started her new life in a cellar surrounded by children of all ages. The room was cool and a strange smell filled it. The floor was dusty. She slid against the metal wall until she hit hard in the corner and passed out.
The last thing she remembered was hands gripping her body. She opened her eyes. The room was swaying before her eyes. After a long chain of efforts it finally stilled. She pulled herself up, sweat beeding on her forehead. She looked around and saw a mirror.
She walked towards it and saw herself. She was wearing blue jeans withe loose red shirt. The floor felt cold against her bare feet. Her hair tied loosely in a ponytail. She carefully looked at her features; her face was plain. Her eyes were a dark shade of blue.
There was loud knock on the door. She turned to look around and saw a boy. He looked no more than 16. “hi” he said breaking her chain of thoughts. His voice was soft and spoke as if he were in a trance. He wore a smirk on his face which looked a bit out of place on his dumb face. “hi” he said once again, “I am Will”. “ Silena” she said with a grin. “ well what place is this?” she asked trying her best not to shout at him. “ how would I know?” he answered in his unusual voice. Now she could not bear this anymore and shouted ” do you even know anything?”. His expressions blank; nothing.
He simply turned around and said “follow me”. Silena still had a tough time controlling her anger but knew she had no other choice. “okay” she said rolling her eyes. “This is the shack” he said almost in a whisper. “ I don’t know much about this place but it is really huge. It just seems small.” “ where are you taking me? “ she asked putting all patience in her voice. “ Don’t worry, you will see yourself.” he said.
Suddenly a thought struck her; how had she come here? Why was she put in this ‘shack’? Who were all the all the people she had seen outside? Too much, it was really too much. Her head was overcrowding with who knew how many things. Suddenly she started hearing voices. They entered the room. It was packed with people. They were arguing over something but suddenly stopped after seeing me.
“ hello” Silena said. Their eyes were fixed on her as if she had done some thing odd. “what” she asked trying to break the silence.
She looked at Will. His face as expressionless as others. Are they testing my patience? She thought. She was starting to hate these people more and more every second, especially Will. Surely He was the dumbest person she had ever met in her life.
“ would anyone take the charge of telling me what all this is?” I asked even louder this time. Fortunately a girl stood up, “ I am christina, you can call me chris”, “ this is the shack, and we all are the members of club ‘founder’.
It comprises of all the founder residents of the shack. Its our leadership which has maintained law, order and peace in this place. Our mission is to escape the shack and once again witness the outside world which has been clogged from our view.
“Wait, its too much for a day but why have we been put here and by whom? And why were you looking at me as if I have done something wrong?” I asked. “ its not the right time to tell all this now but you will get to know it very soon.” She answered calmly. I could not handle this anymore. I turned and walked away into darkness……
