DAY TWENTY SIX

RIPPED APART

Adam opened his eyes after occurring a blow to his skull.He attempted to move from his restriction. Whilst he’d been un-conscious Joe and Mark had tied him to the crossed trees of the Dark Woods. He looked at the fuzzy figures. ‘Who’s here?’

No reply.

‘Talk to me.’

‘So you finally woke aye Adam?’

‘Joe?’

‘Forgetting someone?’

‘Mark?’

‘He’s good.’

Adam’s vision gradually un- blurred and the fuzzy figures became more vivid of those of Joe and Mark. ‘Joe, Mark. What’s going on?’

‘You’re never gonna guess.’

‘No please.’ He begged.

‘You’re too good at this game none of the others would’ve.’

‘Or did for that fact.’

‘Why now? You promised.’

‘Well guess what?’ Joe said stepping closer. Inches away from Adam’s face. ‘We lied!’ he said with no emotion.

‘What have I ever done to you?’

‘Everything.’

‘I was the only one that believed in you.’

‘True.’

‘Until we found out the truth aye Joe?’

Adam looked blank at the two friends. ‘What are you talking about?’

They stared blank at him saying nothing.

‘Guys?’

‘Five years to the day I recall. Seven of us remained, five ran. Who told the psych’s? We were the only ones here.’

‘No one.’

‘Not what Cat says.’

‘She’s lying.’

‘You hear that Joe? Cat’s lying have you ever known her to lie?’

‘Never.’ He looked dead at Adam. His eyes blank. His face expressionless. ‘So you best tell the truth Adam or you die.’

‘I am.’

Joe and Mark pulled out the whips. They cracked as they were unleashed.

The clawed blades hurtled through the air as they hit his flesh from front and behind, ripping his clothing and flesh.

Joe and Mark pulled them back ripping the flesh, Adam screamed in pain as they teared his skin causing bleeding.

They flew at him again piercing into his flesh.

‘Okay okay. I told them okay. I thought it was for the best, you guys needed help this place sent you psycho. It was for the best.’

The blades teared out of Adam’s flesh.’

‘Who else was in on it with you?’

‘No one.’

They flew at him again piercing into his flesh.

‘Okay okay. It was Spanner and Corplan they agreed you needed help, the girls were dead set against it. That’s it I swear.’

‘So Cat and Sass had nothing to do with your plans?’

‘No they tried to protect you even after everything. And trying to kill them they just wanted to get the hell out of here and forget about it, and you. No one ever expected you to return.’

‘Well guess what? We did. Guess that spoilt everyone’s plans aye?’

‘It’s time to say good bye.’

‘But you said.’

‘Don’t you ever learn Adam? Don’t trust anyone’s word. Especially ours.’

Joe and Mark pulled them back ripping the flesh, Adam screamed in pain as they teared his skin causing bleeding.

A black shadow cowered over Adam. He screamed as it took his soul clawing him apart leaving a limp, dead, blooded body.

‘Shit he screams like a puff.’

‘Tell me about it.’

‘Come on lets go.’

They turned walking away.
