Chapter 1

Jayla's POV

Hi, my name's Jayla Sito and I have a life that some would say is awesome but another would say it totally sucks. In my opinion, both are equally right.

You see, I've been in this place called the School for the past seventeen years of my life. My real last name is "Fudo" by what I've heard those insane scientists known as white coats say when I was younger.

The School is no school if you were still thinking that. It houses the cruelest experiments known on this planet. The white coats' experiments tend to consist of DNA splicing. Unfortunately, I'm one of them.

My DNA is ninety- eight percent human, two percent bird. And that other two percent had a big impact. I have wings! Like the wings you would find on birds, obviously. Mine are pure white but all the feathers have red tips.

BANG! BANG! BANG!

I stirred out of my pleasant dream. "Ugh…" I groaned.

"TIME TO GET UP, YOU LAZY WORM! WAKE UP NOW! IT'S TIME FOR THE TESTS!" my assigned white coat yelled.

I sat up though I didn't want to. If I didn't, I would get hurt. If I did, I would get hurt. They were lose, lose options so I just got up. He yanked me out and I looked around for any way out. I've been doing this for the past three days.

Then, at last, my timing and patience paid off. I saw it… an unguarded, open window. I grinned. Being stronger and faster than the average human, or white coat, I easily yanked free of his grip and jumped out the window.

I heard the sirens blare. I ran as fast as I could. I saw the gate nearing and got ready to do one thing my wings allowed me to do. 'Thank god they're stupid enough to give flying "lessons" to us,' I thought.

I took one giant leap and flapped my wings. I heard the sound of bullets flying by me and just as I thought I was in the clear… "OW!" I exclaimed as a couple bullets scraped my flesh creating a deep wound that bled like a waterfall, one on my right leg and one on my left upper arm.

The bright side was, I could still fly. But I didn't know for how long with the amount of blood I was losing.

I flew as fast as I could. The farther I got away from that place the better. As I flew I found myself over a somewhat separated city. There was one, smaller section that was in bad shape but was tied to the better looking city by a bridge.

I felt myself losing altitude and I couldn't get higher. The blood loss was getting to me and my mind was going blank. As the ground came closer, I saw windows that led into a garage come into my path. I tried to switch directions but my mind was already black before I even felt myself go through the window.

Third Person POV

Yusei, Jack, and Crow were in the garage working on their engine when something crashed through their window. Glass shards flew in all directions and the trio hid their faces with their arms.

When the last bit of glass was on the ground, they brought their arms down. "What was that?" Crow asked.

"I'm not sure," Jack answered.

Yusei looked at the figure in the middle of the debris. It was a girl, maybe seventeen. She had black hair with seemingly natural red, yellow, and white tips and a hospital gown. But what shocked Yusei more was what was on her back. White and red bird wings!

"Hey, you guys. She's got wings," Yusei said in disbelief.

"No kidding. What is she? An angel?" Crow asked.

Yusei noticed the blood pooling from under her leg and arm. "I don't know, but she's hurt," he said.

They ran up to her and looked her over. They noticed the clean wounds and Jack said, "Those wounds could only be made from bullets."

"What has she been through?" Crow asked.

"Can't go back…" the girl mumbled sleepily. The trio looked at her. She mumbled again, "Can't go back. Can't go back."

"C'mon, we need to get her some help," Yusei said still confused.

"Yeah, but if we take her to the hospital, what're we going to say about her wings?" Crow asked. "They looked real." Yusei gave a small nod in understanding.

They looked at her wounds and saw they were already scabbing over. "Man, this girl heals fast. Let's just put some bandages over those cuts and let them heal on their own. I think she'll be fine," Jack suggested.

"I with Jack. And I don't say that often," Crow agreed.

"Same here. Crow, can you go get the medical kit? I'll take her to the couch," Yusei said.

Crow hurried off while Yusei picked the girl up bridal style. 'She's extremely light. She has to be my age so why is she so light?' Yusei thought as he set her on the couch.

Crow came back and he and Jack began carefully wrapping the cuts. After that was done they went back to working on the engine while the girl slept. All of them wondering who this girl was, what happened to her, and where she came from.
