Chapter 3- A Knockin' We Comecopyright protection58PENANAzwgsMxsyfM

Canidice:copyright protection58PENANAh8XNNkPOFA

"SHIT!" I jerk awake, alarmed. I peek out the crack, only to see one of the other 151 collapsed on the ground. He grimaces in pain, and I grasp my ankle, remembering the pain I felt just a day or two ago. A girl who looks to be around 19 comes into my line of sight. She has blond hair and blue eyes, popping in the green lush habitat that is the world outside of The Compound. The boy has white hair, and pink eyes. One of the last albinos. Considering the years, it's amazing that even now we incorporate albinos in the GMO babies. Which he obviously is. I am too, most of the 151 are, but they don't have enough electricity or resources to make enough to sustain the future generations. I have black hair, light skin with freckles and ice blue eyes. The pupils are slits, perfect for seeing in the dark. She crouches down and gives him a concerned look. The sun shines bright, even though it's almost down, which means they figured out pretty quickly that it won't hurt them. Good for them, not so good for me. I wonder if they have radio. I wonder if they're the only search party.copyright protection58PENANAfhqVftDX7i

"What happened?" She pushes her hair behind one ear and places her hand on the ground to steady herself. The girl's genetic modification is probably her voice. It's smooth as melted chocolate as it glides across her tongue and bounces through the forest. The boys' seems to be not only his pigment, but his extreme clumsiness (Note my sarcasm).copyright protection58PENANAFHOW9AtC8J

"I didn't see the ledge. I knew this wasn't a good idea. My ankle, I think it's broken." Well, he obviously didn't take foraging. Or the med course that accompanied it. copyright protection58PENANAoqRmdFG3um

"No, silly, it's not broken, just sprained."copyright protection58PENANADJD4FTyiQG

"What's that?" His eyes widen and he looks alarmed, as if she's just told him he has a fatal disease or something.copyright protection58PENANAAwnptw0W99

"It just means you pulled a muscle basically. You probably shouldn't walk on that for a while. We'll just have to make camp here. I mean, it's not that bad. Nice clearing, and the ledge'll alert us to anyone coming from behind." She takes off her bag and sits down.copyright protection58PENANAGxzxTNdARH

"Well shit." I cover my mouth. Whoops. I've gotten so used to there not being anyone to hear me that I forgot to think, not say. I grab hand fulls of dirt and shove them in the hole.copyright protection58PENANAWuqAy5t7oj

"Did you hear that?" The boy says, and the girl laughs.copyright protection58PENANANZQapjHpgQ

"It's probably just the wind. Or maybe it's the killer bunnies out to get you."copyright protection58PENANAyWo8uiWISN

"Ha ha very funny. Ya know, Conner was being serious about that. Speaking of him, how far behind is he?" Another one!? What the hell? How did they even let this many of the 151 out? Why? Are they insane? Do they want the human race to go extinct?!copyright protection58PENANApPhQpQWSXl

"Right here, Buddy." The guy, Buddy, apparently, grimaces. I can't see whoever this Conner guy is, he sounds like he's above me. copyright protection58PENANAcKl3VKmD9D

"You know I don't like my name. Buddel is bad enough. You really have to call me that?"copyright protection58PENANAtIARR4aNM3

What do you suggest. Ella? Maybe that old computer thing we were learning about in history? Dell? Or Adell? Maybe Deli?" copyright protection58PENANAAcSR3iI0aG

"Ladies ladies, let's not fight. We'll be here for at least a day or two more thanks to that ledge." Someone groans, and I internally curse. I start digging at the back, pilling the dirt at the entrance. I leave a tiny portion of the once decent sized crack open to see, but I'm careful to be quiet and discreet. I've been digging down too lately, so I can kneel with an inch or two more space above my head.copyright protection58PENANAlnrGqmrNZB

"You guys have anything to sit on?" Oh no. Please no. Not the rock. I quickly start piling more and more dirt.copyright protection58PENANArtj1lb5vYS

"No, we can find a branch or something though." copyright protection58PENANAyy5rq8J88U

"Hey, what about that rock?" I lean back, pressing my back into the ground.copyright protection58PENANAOthfaHCBvC

"Maybe later. Too much effort to move that big ol' thing." I sigh in relief.copyright protection58PENANAcW5wXqH3WF

"Ok. So what are we gonna do? We have to have watches, right?" The girl's voice.copyright protection58PENANAWve1WE9GNh

"Ya. I guess. I'll take first shift." I think it's that Conner guy's voice. Can't quite tell. I lay down and take a swig of water from my jug.copyright protection58PENANAACLRSWzvx5

"I could have sworn I heard something when we first got here though."copyright protection58PENANA7K1dhZDY3A

"Leave it alone, bud."copyright protection58PENANAEZ6S03xaJk

"You can't call me that either, Quincey!"copyright protection58PENANAsjXebPaLkI

"What did you hear?"copyright protection58PENANAQrsSEJSiIW

"A voice! A human voice! I swear! I think it was a girl!"copyright protection58PENANATmVZeW2L6M

"But nobody else it out here." Um, what? They're not here for me?copyright protection58PENANA6z63NhSX3d

"But-"copyright protection58PENANAFTF8MjSFCA

"No one is here. It was probably just the wind."copyright protection58PENANABwWxvbtyXA

"Go to sleep. The sun's almost down. You should catch some z's so I can hit the metaphorical lights sooner. I'm taking the first shift."copyright protection58PENANAk49q7WI0UL

"Ok, Conner. Wake me up when it's time. I'll take second." I'm so screwed. How long are they going to stay? I can't stay in here forever. I mean, it's not as cramped as before, but it's not exactly amazing either. FUCK.copyright protection58PENANAezFTIsdA7Q
