Jackson proved a good point, but what good was he in a wheelchair. Nonetheless, I drank a bit, but only as much as was necessary to stay awake." The ground shook slightly as others passed, but we weren't found. Wait....where was Connor?! I tried to get up, and I was actually able to move my arms this time. A sound rang out, similar to a scream, but not quite.
"blood..." I went into the freezer section, looking for anything that was red and oozed. As I neared the back, the door creaked open again. I turned to see my old friend and partner, and he did not look happy. "Hey! Did you let everyone know? Why the long face?"
"I told everyone, but she told me that the girl Cain was in her clutches, and another doctor scared her nearly to death, so she had to split. She also told me you were helping them, and she was forced to lock you in a closet. She's crushed, you know," He took a step forward. "Is it true, Scar? Did you betray us for some lab rats?

"No! She's lying! Why would I ever help those things? Especially since I know that you're on it," I was sweating like a pig. "Cain is dead! I can find you the body if you need!"
"You aren't as good of a liar as you think you are," he came closer and grabbed my wrists.
"I'm not lying! No need to go crazy like before!"
he raised his fist, and I cringed, but the blow never came. Instead, his grip slackened, and he fell to the floor. Connor was behind him, grimacing. I shook, but Connor grabbed my shoulders and stilled me.
"Scarlett, where is my family? If she's really dead-"he began.
"Cain isn't, but both her and Jackson are in bad shape, so I'm getting blood," I steadied myself. This scientist couldn't hurt me like he killed my brothers, and I would do whatever I could to help these vampires. "Here, I found some. Let's go back"
