Prologue.

“Alex are you sure now is the right time?” Taylor asked.

“Of course, I am Taylor, don’t worry” Alex replied

“Can’t we do this some other day?”

“No”

“Fine” Taylor gave in.

There was silence after that, for what felt like an hour, no one dared to speak. Rethinking their strategies and checking old crumbled maps was best they could do.

Alex short for Alexander was a sixteen-year-old boy a year older than Taylor he was known for his brave yet aggressive personality.

Finally daring to break the long-lasting silence, she spoke up “How long?” she asked.

“Soon” replied Alex “Now stay quiet we don’t want to draw attention.”

Taylor obeyed silently. There was nothing she could do about it anyway; this was the only chance they had.

Another half-hour had passed when Alex spoke up again looking at his watch which he somehow managed to sneak in.

" We have five minutes at the most to escape the building” he said.

“Then” he continued “we run for it”

Taylor remained silent. Even if they were able to escape the main building silently, there was almost no chance of them making it to the boundary alive...

“The shift changes in ten” he spoke again.

Taylor nodded in response...
