I felt betrayed. The person who helped me as a child was now against me? "That traitor" My sister hissed beside me. Nicklous and the guards stopped and looked in our direction. My sisters eyes widened. She grabbed my arm and started running. We ducked in a shed at the last minute and they ran past us. Once I saw his face, I couldnt help but tear up. Nicklous, that innocent little boy who helped me, is now trying to catch me and kill me. Jennifer punched my arm. Once they were a good distance away, we came out of hiding and ran away.
We were sneaking down our street when I saw a familiar face in the shadows. How I knew them? No clue, but I knew them some how. I left my sister and walked over to them. Then I noticed how I knew them. They were recently a prisoner who had got released. "Marcus?" I said surprised. "Aurora?" He stepped out of the shadows. He stood there for a second, then wrapped me in an embrace. For him, thats a big surprise, hes not really a hugger. "Your out? You escaped? But how?" I smiled and laughed lightly. "I escaped. I made my own way out." He looked surprised. "Well, looks like the kitten has gained herself the title of a full grown killer cat." I shook my head. "I look forward to working with the big dogs" He laughed " Yeah, okay. Little innocent cats dont get to hang with the big dogs. Cats and dogs dont get along very well" He said. "We're getting along now, arent we?" He nodded. "You got me there." Then there was silence. "I had to kill in order to get out....." I suddenly said. He looked shocked. "Did you?" "How else do you think im out here talking with you?" He considered it. "Good point." We laughed. He sighed. "Well, Im on the run again" I rolled my eyes. "What did you do this time?" He shrugged. "The usual. Breaking and entering, stealing, and murder." Just like me, I thought to myself. "But I think your more of a chase than me." I shrugged. "Its not that big of a deal. Its just, breaking out of that prison, exiting and some fighting." I said. He shook his head. "You really dont like the thought of killing, do you?" "No." I said honestly. "It sickens me to know that I took the lives of people who did nothing to me." All but one. He slugged my shoulder. "Dont sweat it. In time, youll forget about it and understand that it was kill or be killed." I nodded. He nodded over in the direction of Jennifer. "How is she, by the way?" I shrugged. "Who knows. She doesnt tell me anything any more." Another silence. "You might want to get back to her. Looks like shes starting to get worried about you." "Okay. I guess Ill see you around." I said. "See ya, Kitty." I made my way back over to my sister. When she saw me, her eyes filled with relief. "Dont wonder off again. You nearly gave me a heart attack." She said. "Sorry. I saw Marcus over there." Now she looked surprised. "Really? Is he okay? What did he say?" I laughed. "Hes just fine. Hes on the run again." She laughed a little. "Just like him to be." We got caught up in our laughter and we didnt see something we should have seen. 2 of Nicklous' guards stood right in front of us. "Look what we have here." One guard said. "General Nicklous will be very pleased to see we brought him a gift."
