I was running and running, barley able to keep conscious. I don’t know why but I found myself thinking about something I thought I’d forgotten. My family, they were all gone now. I can’t remember how. It’s odd, I remember it as though it was a dream, like its detailed and yet important features don’t exist. My memory is filled with blurred faces and muffled voices. Why can’t I remember? I want to remember them!

The robotic voice on the intercom broke my thought. I needed to get out of here. I need to keep moving, is this hallway gonna end soon. Everything so dark down here. I feel like I’m not getting anywhere. I need the exit. Or at least an exit, I doubt I could just leave. LET ME FUCKING LEAVE! I fell against a wall. My legs are tired, I’m so tired. I just want to leave and sleep. I want to feel human again.

“Hey it’s gonna be okay.” I heard a soft, yet broken voice talk to me. They was another experiment, I think, I definitely had seen them around, you couldn’t miss the white hair. I could never figure out if they were male or female though, not that gender matters here, but having a label seemed like a human thing right? I want to be human again. Her brand was on her left arm. A former soldier maybe? This must have been her punishment. 376 it read, it was slightly faded, I’d hate to think how long she’d been here. I wonder what they did to end up in Pandora’s Box?

“Hey are you okay?” They looked at me with determined bright emerald eyes, how could someone have so much life in them in this hell?

My throat was dry so I nodded. I was tired but seeing her gave me the motivation to stand.

“Hey I found two of ’em! Come here you shits!” Shit a bloodhound, he was heavily armoured too. “Stay where you are.” He snarled. I couldn’t tell if he wanted to shoot us or eat us. Is that what they wanted to make me into? Why am I a failure? I’m always disappointing people. Maybe I should let him kill me.

“Fuck” I heard them mutter next to me. This person still had hope. They weren’t giving up, I should give them the chance. “Let’s get you two back with the others or I’ll have to kill you. I don’t fancy killing pretty demons like you.”
Kill. I’ll kill him. Or die trying.

“Go.” I managed to choke out, she looked at me in brief confusion, but I guess my thoughts were clear and within seconds she was gone a two tailed cat trailed behind her.
Let me just do something right for once.
