Locked Framed

Summary

A group of former friends find themselves in a pickle when a bomb goes off, taking out an entire city and teleporting them to another planet. The group must put aside their differences to survive. This is the final plot remake of the original Locked Framed, which can still be found in it's older version on Wattpad. This is a mixture of feelings that I've been going through, and an overall dedication to complete the remake of this story, after two failed attempts and the original version getting messed up by Wattpad.

Chapter 1

“G...Gordan... I don’t feel so good.” Enzo muttered, coughing up a dark maroon liquid, he stared at the arrow wound through his chest. Gordan sat by his side watching Enzo as he suffered through the pain. “Gordan.”

“Just stop talking... you need to keep your strength. The week isn’t over for you.” Gordan paused, watching Enzo start to fade. “Damn it Enzo, you’ve already used up all your vacation time, just stay conscious.”

“They always talk about the light in the movies... I don’t see one.”

“That’s good! It means you’re doing fine. Just keep looking at me, I’m going to get you out of here.” Gordan replied, reaching under Enzo to lift him up. Enzo stopped him, shaking his head.“Come on, the first aid kit is just down the hall... I got a beacon that will call a rescue Huey to our location.”

“You were a great mentor, while it... lasted...”

“That’s it, I game you the job without anyone else’s input, I don’t need yours!” Gordan muttered, lifting Enzo up and waddling over towards the first aid room, Gordan set Enzo down on a table. He moved to the first aid kit, but when he got back Enzo had already passed. “Enzo!”

Gordan instantly sat up in his bed, the sun shining right through the window. Gordan stared at the blank, spotless, white curtains. Sweat dripped from his face onto the red and yellow comforter above his legs. Gordan felt the exhaustion from his dream. He continued his stare at the curtains, remembering each second of the dream, and the real event. Gordan then realized he had his pistol in one of his hands. He instantly set it onto his nightstand, sliding his legs from out of the covers and out over the side of the bed. He felt his muscles engage as he stood up, Gordan felt dazed as he stumbled towards the door, looking back to see the imprint of his fiance, Riley, who had already gotten out of bed. Gordan walked towards the bathroom, he glanced into the dark rooms of his house as he passed them, almost imagining that there were people inside of the rooms... each and every room that he passed made him snap in and out of reality. He felt his vision blur each time as he saw many of his co-workers get shot. Gordan then saw Enzo get shot by that arrow again, and he nearly collapsed onto the hallway table, he looked into the bathroom, realizing he had arrived at his destination. Gordan stumbled in, glancing back at his face, which made him look almost like a Sasquatch, his beard going out of control. Gordan rubbed his chin, trying to remember the last time he actually shaved. he quickly stripped and stepped into the bathtub. The jets coming from the shower head were cold. Though the house was a quite beautiful house. It’s hot water was lacking. The refresh during the winter was once per week, during the summer it was once every three days, though this cold water was more-less rejuvenating for Gordan, his thoughts about Enzo’s death and his previous co-workers fall faded from existence. Gordan quickly got out of the shower. The frosty air around him making him shiver as he moved towards the mirror, slipping into a pair of slacks and a dress shirt. Gordan quickly pulled out his electric razor, staring at the beard and quickly mowing down the strands of fur that covered his face. Gordan smirked at his anchor beard and mustache, he quickly set down his razor, moving towards the door and opening it. Looking out into the hall. His reactions instinctively moved his fist up as if someone was waiting for him. Empty. Gordan shook his head, rubbing his eyes as he walked towards the living room, he instantly stopped to see Riley sitting at the breakfast bar watching the TV that sat above the microwave. A simple late night talk show. Gordan walked towards her, embracing her from behind. Gordan watched as her facial expression changed to a flirty smile, then rested his head on her shoulder, slowly moving her side to side. She finally broke loose from his bear hug and spun around in the chair. Gordan watched as she was taken back by the facial hair change. She smirked and brushed a piece of hair off his chin. Her face moved from a smile to a straight line, Gordan saw her eyes shift to a more reflective shimmer, he took her hand as it touched his cheek, they were definitely cold, but relaxing nonetheless.

“I heard you call out his name again.” Riley whispered, her looks of worry persisting as Gordan looked down at her feet. “It’s not your fault... those evil men who came in and attacked are at fault. You did all that you could’ve done.”

“I’m the one who convinced him to join.” Gordan replied, his voice lowering. He felt his eyes try to water, but they refused to. “If I had been actually looking for the archer, I would’ve been able to save Enzo... I shouldn’t have urged him so hard to join though, he’d still be doing his great work if I had just left him be.”

“He did even greater works with you and The Wolves.” Riley sighed, pulling Gordan’s hand away from his cheek and massaging it. “Enzo was happy to have you has a mentor. He looked up to you. First thing he asked me when I interviewed him was what type of jokes you found funny.”

“Knock Knock Jokes?”

“I don’t remember what I told him, point is... he wanted to impress you. He wanted to be you.” Riley shook her head slowly, thinking. “Just don’t beat yourself up over it.”

“I can’t help it, Jason is still out there. Asshole thinks he doesn’t have to answer for what he brought upon Enzo... and everyone else that died that night.”

“Veov is doing everything he can, but the FEAR can’t find everyone in one day... much less a man who has gone off the radar for over a month.” Riley let go of Gordan’s hand and leaned forwards, kissing Gordan on the lips. “Until then, just forget about the traitorous douche-bag, and think about something positive. Our wedding is coming up!”

“I suppose you’re right. I just wish there was something I could do to speed up the process.” Gordan said, his eyes lessening their focus on the wall as he stared past Riley at the wall. “Did you manage to reserve Michael’s catering services for Friday?”

“Even better. I got Everest Eats.” Riley’s mouth letting a smirk loose as Gordan’s eyes widened at the mention of the restaurant. “Exactly my response.”

“I thought they were packed for the week!”

“Apparently they had an opening, and the people in line before us already scheduled a different catering service and we were the lucky couple who got it.”

“That’s great! Though we have to tell everyone the menu change, or else they’re going to bring pasta salad or something to go with the spaghetti from Michael’s.”

“Did that too.”

“Damn woman, you do everything around here.”

“Not everything. Flowers, we need them as decorations. I’m partial t...”

“Freesias?” Gordan asked, watching Riley smile. “Your mother told me those were your favorites.”

“Points for doing your homework.”

“I’ve finally broke out of the negatives.”

“It’s all downhill from there.”
