[center [h3 Test]]

[center [i Drip Drip Drip]]

[center [+red Have you taken today's samples yet? So no change? That's disappointing well continue monitoring the subjects.]]


[center [i Drip drip drip drip]]


[center [+red And someone fix those damn pipes already.]]


[center [b As the water fell from the rusted pipes of the barren underground lab. So did the spirits of those who dwelled in such a place.]]

[center [b It almost looked more like an underground waterway or a sewer than a lab it was hard to believe any kingdom would fund this. It hardly looked legit though the drugs and tech were state of the art that much was for sure.]]

[center [b Though the machines never broke that wasn't to say other things did not. There was one such broken thing perhaps shattered even.]]

[center [+red Subject "Rex" he's been here for quiet some time. He's lost rather a lot of cellmates hasn't he? Well place the next three subjects here I doubt he'll last much longer. Subjects been non responsive for quiet some time now.]]

[center [i Drip drip drip drip]]

[center [+blue But sir we are ordered two per--]]

[center [+red Nonsense we save more room this way I have more promising subjects to concern myself with. That will be all carry on.]]

[center [b The man adjusting his collar as he handed his clipboard to his female aid. She appeared young and rather frightened too. She was young and most certainly unprepared. How she ended up here was anyones guess.]]

[center [h3 Day 364]]
[center [youtube https://youtu.be/BnmQZFm_Rac]]

[center [b Subject Rex had laid in his cell scribbling on the walls as usual. Though other subjects from near cells would attempt to catch his attention it was to no avail. The boy was gone all that remained was a husk a shell. Though that was not always the case. Once the boy had attempted to make such chit chat. Timid and awkward he hardly said much.]]

[center [b Though one by one the subjects would change again and again and again and again. Why bother talking to someone who wouldn't stay much longer?]]

[center [b Rex had fiddled with his hair laying in a brown tunic. One of the things he had missed most may have been the clothes they had taken away. When had that happened? How had that happened? It was hard to remember much of anything with all the shots.]]

[center [+orange Three hundred and... Sixty-Four tomorrow is a special day. Special day...]]

[center [b Rex stared to the roof to only cover his face with his arm. No sky again yeah almost as if he kept looking one day there wouldn't be a roof. That one day when he opened his eyes there would magically be a blue sky.]]

[center [b Not that he went out much in the first place. Or did he? It was hard to remember anything at all. Rex hated this feeling he could only remember a few faces. Parents? Lover? Siblings? These questions would plague the man for hours to hours a night. Enough for him to want to take a drill and--]]

[center [+orange Drill... Drill..... What are my drills today? Will I have to kill someone today?]]

[center [i Drip drip drip]]

[center [b As drops of water continued to hit the ground the boy had wept. No longer were the drops of water from the pipe alone.]]

[center [b Rex had decided if he was to kill another or was pitted against one that he would instead surrender his own life. That was selfish wasn't it? To let someone else live in this hell hole? To find peace in death? Selfish... Selfish.... It was hard for the muddled boy to find right or wrong.]]

[center [+orange That's not right... Right right right.... no left? No wait up? Or maybe down? Should I? Go down? Down down..]]

[center [b The boy rambled on as his words fell on deaf ears. As the boys sweet voice clashed with the words he rambled on and on.]]

[center [h3 Eric]]

[center [+darkblue Subject "Knight" thick muscle tissue, dense bone structure. I suppose he was properly titled. Though his changes seem to only be around the body how boringly straight forward. The last guy made a nice lighter.]]

[center [b The woman spoke as she adjusted her glasses licking her lips appearing somewhere in her mid thirties.]]

[center [+darkblue His cellmate is... Ahh subject Rex that delicious little morsel. I wonder if our knight in shining armor taste just as sweet.]]

[center [pic http://orig12.deviantart.net/13ab/f/2014/321/9/0/fairy_fencer_f_fang__psd_download_by_conflictluka-d86r0cp.png]]

[center [b Subject Knight being a brown haired male yet to be stripped of his coat or belongings. Those were the rules down here obey those above you and keep you're things. As long as it wasn't any weapons of course. As the guards shoved subject Knight into the cell. Rex had shot up hearing his cell cage open.]]

[center [+brown Oh heya! The names Eric pleasure to meet you.]]

[center [b The tall brown haired male smiled as the guards shut the gate as Rex stared at the man. Smiling? That won't last long he was one of those types. A man who held hope strong or just a delusional fool. Either way they all broke the same it didn't matter who.]]

[center [+brown I heard we're getting two more room mates man it'll be cramped! So what's you're name champ?]]

[center [b The male said as he sat beside Rex looking his way his mouth widened into a smile. Rex had noticed the name flash his teeth into a smile... An expression he hadn't been familiar with for some time.]]

[center [+orange I umm... I'm.... Well... I'm Subject Rex.]]

[center [b He said as he looked away rubbing the back of his neck looking away. It was harder to ignore someone that shared the same cell with you.]]

[center [h3 Subject Snow White]]


[center [pic https://i.pinimg.com/736x/b6/96/07/b69607fee2f7cbef99203ad8fc769310.jpg]]


[center [b In one moment darkness the next? A flash of white light. There laid a woman with snow white hair. A cold sensation crawling on her back. "What was that..? Oh yeah the cold wet floor..".  Her hands were restrained, as well as her wrist. An extra precaution taken with her power in mind.]]

[center [b Her vision blurred again next her eyes opened she could hear murmurs. "Please.. Stop this.." she weakly thought as the voices carried on about their day. More lab coats again. She could make out the word "Subject."]]

[center [b What subject, where was she? Forcing her eyes to flutter open, everything felt fuzzy. Panic began to invade her mind as her heart began to race. "God damn it.." she cursed herself for feeling so weak. It felt like it was her first day all over again.]]

[center [b However reality hit her, she had been here much longer. The days, she stopped numbering. With all the tests she had gone through, it was becoming increasingly difficult to count the days. How long had she been here? Her head was throbbing as her eyes held a burning sensation. She had blinked reeling away from those cold hands. Whose hands were they? It was that damn doctor wasn't it? He held her eyes open. He dropped a liquid into her eyes, the pain flashed for a moment and then her vision flashed pure white, blinking again and again as she panted panicking. "I can't see.. I can't see I can't.." And like nothing had happened at all her vision returned to normal. Her chest was raising up and down in a staggered panic. Gripping her fist her fear flared into anger. Raising her head she hit the doctor's chin with her forehead following with an attempt to bite at him. Though her headbutt had landed solid enough to cause his nose a light bleed he had backed up in time to avoid her bite.]]


[center Oh! We've got ourselves a fighter! You're lucky you're a rare specimen... Otherwise I wouldn't have to be so careful dear.]


[center [b Now that she could see clearly she saw his face and his attire. Exactly as her mind pictured the slimy bastard, a cruel smile only a mother could love. A weaselly face with round glasses and a long coat. A slender frame with short brown hair and a small nose.]]


[center [+grey Bastard!]]


[center [b She flailed in her restraints further as the man waggled his finger.]]


[center Now now Paige.. We know better than this don't we?]


[center [+grey Don't you dare! Don't you dare use my name!]]


[center [b Though her voice was small and her voice had a gentle bass. Her sharp attitude and fierce emotion had more than made up the difference to show she was rather serious. Sure.. She was terrified deep down. "I just.. I just wanna come home to my.. To my family. Even though.. No stop it Paige! Focus!" she fought the fear and let it give way to anger.]]


[center You're name? You mean.. Paige Whitlock?]


[center [b She had on impulse growled attempting to bite at the air again. Like some caged wild animal but before she could he raised his arm smacking her across the face. Despite his slender frame the malnourished young girl had bruised rather quickly. Panting as she spat some blood out. She looked up at him, defiance in her eyes even if her tongue was caught up in fear. "Damn it.. Today's the day I die isn't it.. After all this shit this.. This is what.."]]


[center [b A voice had interjected, her temporary savior. A stout and short man with a handle bar mustache and a sideburns to match his balding placed a hand on the man's shoulder.]]


[center [i I understand you're impatience but if she is damaged any further.. Besides you know what's coming up.]]


[center I know.. We have to put her to sleep right? Before the big "event" right? Heh.. Maybe I'll get to watch you die after all sweetheart.]


[center [i Maybe, maybe not but either way it's time to put the poor girl to sleep.]]


[center Fine.. But no one said how I had to do it right?]

[center [b The man had finished his final scrawl of notes onto a clipboard. Before flipping the clipboard around to smack Paige with it. The wood had given way cracking by the impact papers strewn everywhere. "Pfft.. Of course.. What else was I expecting?" Where Paige's last thoughts as she fell onto the cold hard unforgiving floor.]]


[center [b Her mind blanking to another time.. Another place.]]

[center [h3 Subject Sunshine]]

[center [pic https://www.teahub.io/photos/full/174-1748415_anime-girl-sweater-brown-hair-green-eyes-green.jpg]]

[center [b Long eyelashes paired with deep green emerald eyes accompanied with chestnut brown hair. This was the description of a young woman being directed to her testing area. Looking around curiously she felt her arms shaking but she slapped herself quickly. Her two "escorts" were looking her way. She forced herself to smile regardless of her situation despite her legs shaking she kept on her smile wearing it like it was a piece of armor. The escorts simply shrugged as one shoved her to move along quickly.]]

[center [+darkgreen That's no way to treat a lady ya know~]]

[center [b She chuckled as the second escort growled bunting her with the back of his fire arm. She spat a bit of blood coughing slightly but it wasn't long before the bleeding stopped. "Come on Evelyn stay strong.. You've got this." She stood back up smiling yet again. The man seemed rather angry by her response. Was he angry? Angry a small girl snapped right back from his strike? Evelyn wasn't sure why but.. The pain had turned into nothing more than tingling.]]

[center [+darkgreen Heh, giving me a love tap huh?]]

[center [b "What?! What am I saying? Do I want him to hit me? Come on Evelyn just cause that didn't hurt so bad means.. I should act like a total moron!" He raised his arm again with a growl as a retort. Crashing his arm across her face with twice as much force as before. Her face was red and mouth was bleeding and she almost wanted to cry. Shivering and whimpering.. For a moment before.. The pain began to fade? Her cheek restoring to it's usual glow and the taste of blood in her mouth.. It was gone? A man had came down the hall's. She knew this one.. And the usually cheery woman had soured her expression. The man pushed his glasses up with his long bony fingers. He had offered her a rather hollow "applause." Though his eyes shown interest in this unique specimen.]]

[center Wonderful.. Simply wonderful isn't it? Project Sunshine! A flower that never wilts! Well as long as it's properly taken care of yes? They say flowers can share nutrients with other of it's kind. One tree has many roots yes? I mean some specimens of flower are capable of such a thing eh? You my little flower will prove to the upper board my genius! You'll be greatest unit "medic" we've made yet!]

[center [b "Unit.. Medic? What was he talking about?]]

[center No.. Medic is shooting to low I'm sure you'll be promoted too-]

[center [+red She's being detained so stand aside.]]

[center Oh? Scared of one little girl captain? Well well.. You have struck her twice and.. Yet here she stands. Still you're opinions hardly matter, an arm does not disobey the brain no? Now be a good appendage and bring her to me. Orders from the board I'm afraid.]

[center [b The burly man looked at Evelyn with a growl as he shoved her towards the man with the slimy smile.]]

[center I'm afraid knocking you out may be tricky for our little event but.. I've something in mind just for you.]

[center [b With one sharp movement there was a flash of steel revealed from his coat. A large tipped needle pressed against her neck. The young brunette had began to felt wobbly. "My whole world.. Feel's spinny. I know I can be a klutz but come on.." Even in such dire straits she had made a joke for the audience of none. It may have only been the theater of the mind but it was her theater none the less.]]

[center [+darkgreen Stay... Awake..]]

[center [b Her attempts were futile soon her whole world was pitch darkness.]]

[center [h3 Time Passes]]

[center [b Who knew how much time had passed for these two women but today? Today was Rex's 364th day here, at least that's what the marks had said on the wall. First to awake was Evelyn in her newfound cell. Looking up she saw a brown haired male staring at a man with ashen hair. His smile was unwavering and.. Well if this wasn't such a dire situation? The old Evelyn might have thought he was kinda cute. Though she was more concerned where she was.]]

[center [+darkgreen Uhm..]]


[center [+brown Subject Rex? Oh yeah!]]

[center [b Eric hitting the palm of his hand with a balled up fist as he raised that same hand. Pointing a finger up if almost like a light bulb flashed in his head.]]

[center [+brown The weird code names they give us right? Well come on man I know you have a real name! Forget the ones they give us.]]

[center [b Rex simply fidgeted sitting up straight scooting away slightly as he stared at the ground. Holding at his own arm as he began to sigh. Evelyn was sure she just walked into.. A rather odd conversation.]]

[center [+orange I... well....]]

[center [b Though before Rex had a chance to really reply the timid boy was cut off. With the arrival of two new subjects to share the cell. It wasn't like them to cluster the subjects. Unless... they were to be thinned out again through more severe test. Wait.. They had been there for a moment hadn't they? Was Rex so distracted avoiding an awkward talk with this guy.. That he didn't notice them? Oh great..]]

[center [b At least Rex could use this as a chance to escape the question and awkward conversation He simply kept his head hung low. As Eric shot up to greet the two fellow subjects.]]

[center [+brown Nice to meet you both the names Eric.]]

[center [b Eric looked at the second woman at the ground with curious eyes. Rex rolled his eyes "she's not even awake yet idiot." Eric had taken a knee beside her shaking her softly. She had a few murmurs before waking up with Eric beside her.]]

[center [+brown Oh hey! Good morning sleeping beauty my names Eri-]]

[center [+purple Ahh!]]

[center [b The woman shot up and punched Eric square in the nose with no restraint. She began to look around, where was he? The man in the coat? What the hell.. They were sharing cells now? Seriously?]]

[center [+brown Wow! That's a hell of a hook! The name's Eric it's a pleasure!]]

[center [b He smiled as he offered a hand shake to Paige. She had stared at his hand before looking up and staring at him. "Is he.. For real?"

[center [+purple What?]]

[center [b She seemed to have preferred to keep to herself as well though this didn't deter Eric's smile. It did however make Rex feel even more uncomfortable to have a harsh atmosphere. Rex began to lay down on the cells bench as he had buried his head to sleep or at least pretend to. Evelyn had shot up shooting her hand forward.]]

[center [+darkgreen Name's Evelyn Everdeen! Just call me Evelyn or Eve if ya want! You seem friendly huh?]]

[center [+brown Eve? I like that! It's cute! The name's Eric!]]

[center [b The two had shared a rather strange handshake. Evelyn's hands were proudly on her hips with a brimming smile. The intensity of her smile was only matched by Eric's own smile. "Were these two.. For real?" Rex thought to himself. "Wait.. Did he just say Eve was a cute nickname? How could he just say that to someone! Least of all to a girl! I mean.. She's gotta think that's weird right? Right?" This wasn't the time to think of such trivial things true. Perhaps deep down Rex knew these were frivolous thoughts while in dire straits. Maybe he did maybe he didn't.]]


[center [b Eric had looked at her for a moment longer before he began to spoke. So far she seemed a little friendlier than the other two had seemed.]]

[center [+brown A pleasure to meet you mam, I've noticed they made you wear a tunic. Him too but they let me keep my things, that's not very fair of them huh? Well if you guys ever get cold we could share my coat.]]

[center [b He said removing his black coat having only a thin white t-shirt underneath. As he gave a soft chuckle rubbing the back of his head.]]

[center [+brown Maybe we could file a complaint?]]

[center [b Rex's eyes opened as he stared at the wall laying down. "A complaint?!" Rex had to hold back scoffing. He didn't want to cause an even more awkward situation but... Was this guy crazy? This wasn't like some hotel! Or a resort Rex couldn't wrap his head what this guys problem was. Coming in here all chipper without a care in the world like their in paradise. Though Rex was quiet Paige was not.]]

[center [+purple Excuse me what? Are you serious? They could be planning to kill us and you're making jokes?]]

[center [+brown Jokes.. Oh I never asked! What's you're name?]]

[center [+purple My.. What? Are you.. What?!]]

[center [b Paige's eyes flared in anger, she had felt that burning sensation from before. Gripping her fist she forced herself to take a deep breath and calm down. "He's.. Not worth it Paige.. He's clearly crazy."]]

[center [b Rex had placed his hand on his chest as he bit at his lower lip. Why was he so angry? Was it really because the man was misguided? Was Rex envious? Rex wasn't that bright even first coming here. He was scared he had missed his family. The few friends he had and the comfort of freedom. Why would he just smile? How could he? Rex simply shook his head why was he overthinking it? It didn't matter what the others acted like right? Cold,Timid,Happy they could act anyway. It wouldn't change the situation they were in.]]

[center [b Perhaps his own thoughts or just overthinking things was the only kind of entertainment he had left. There was nothing else to do but to think and think and think some more. Though even before this ordeal Rex did enjoy to overthink most things. He wasn't much at conversation but not by choice. He was just to anxious to say much or too risk embarrassing himself. Even now in this hopeless situation in front of these strangers. Even now he cared what others thought of him. Wait.. Even than..? "Was I.. Like this before?" Rex struggled his best but.. He just couldn't remember. Evelyn had came between Paige and Eric with a nervous smile across her face.]]


[center [+darkgreen Hey hey.. Let's calm down okay? Having a negative attitude isn't going to help us right? If were going to escape we should get to know each other right?]]

[center [+purple Escape..? Escape..? Are you serious? You have any idea how many guards? How many weapons? If that wasn't bad enough the drugs these guards take just in precaution of our "gifts."]]

[center [+darkgreen Heh.. Gifts what a cruel name for these huh?]]

[center [+purple ..What?]]

[center [+darkgreen I mean.. It's the whole reason were here right? Suffering.. Like this.]]

[center [b Her voice had felt like a ray of sunshine in the cold dark damp abyss. At least.. It had to Rex if but for a moment. "She... Truly has hope.. And she doesn't seem crazy like that other guy. She actually knows what's going on and yet.. She has hope..? How could she.. Dare to have hope? Every friend Rex made here.. Every ally every hope.. He was.. He was forced too.." Rex gripped his pillow doing his best to ignore his new cellmates. "Change the subject change it.. Think about something else... Well.. Well... She's really... Cute right? SERIOUSLY!? That's what I think of? I mean.. She is cute, adorable even. Almost like a character from one of his favorite stories.. His.. Stories? He wasn't sure what those were anymore but.. She was like that! She was peppy and cheerful and just.. Well.. She was charismatic to be sure." Though.. Rex had peaked a glance for a moment before laying back over. "Though.. The other one.. She's really pretty too.. Graceful and... Well cute ya know? Like one of those girls that's cruel at first but slowly warms up to you? Rex loved those in his old stories. They were an adorable archetype and yet... Real life was never quite as simple. She didn't seem like she was the type to.. Warm up really. Rex wasn't exactly hopeful but she was downright cynical someone Rex knew.. He'd never get along with no matter how cute she was. ..Okay Rex can we stop oogling at girls? For just.. One moment? ..No? I'm a hopeless case? Yup sounds about right!" Rex had let out a long sigh. The silence was almost too much to bear even with his back turned before Paige clicked her tongue tapping her foot with a hand on her hip. Eric's and Evelyn's smile were unwavering.]]

[center [+purple Ugh... Just call me.. Well..]]

[center [b She thought for a moment. Her face was soft for a moment before coming back to it's usual fierce expression. "What to tell them..? " Paige didn't want her name to be apart of this place. She wanted her old life.. As far from this one as possible.]]

[center [+purple Stop looking at me like that it's starting to creep me out. Just call me... Snow White, or Snow I guess. Hey.. what about quiet and sulking in the corner over there?]]

[center [b "Eek! Don't say anything.. Just stay quiet Rex.. Just.. Pretend to sleep. Eric had looked in the corner as Evelyn sighed, it was clear that wasn't her real name.]]

[center [+brown Oh him? He just gave me his silly old code name. He goes by Rex... You think maybe he forgot his name?]]

[center [+darkgreen Maybe!]]
[center [b Evelyn had chirped in.]]

[center [+brown Right?]]

[center [+purple What? Seriously? Maybe he just doesn't wanna share his name with a stranger, thought of that?]]

[center [+brown ..Oooh!]]
[center [+darkgreen ..Oooh!]]

[center [+brown Wait.. Does that mean you're name isn't real either???]]

[center [b Paige had facepalmed for a moment shaking her head. Before she looked over the man with ashen hair. "Should I approach him? Hmm.. He could be sleeping.. Is he? I did hear a pretty sharp exhale of breath.. Hmm.. It'd be rude to just.. Approach him right? I mean.. Do I really have the luxury of such niceties? I don't wanna come off like a loose cannon like these two. Maybe.. I'll just leave him alone for now." Paige wasn't really eager to talk anyway. She was never really a people person, before and doubly so after this little "lab trip."]]

[center [b Paige had her thoughts cut short by a shiver. Looking around the cell she had only saw two blankets with a scoff she looked to Eric.]]


[center [+purple Well.. I know why they let you keep you're coat. They aren't giving anymore blakets. Besides.. For those that have more brutal testing the clothes won't last.]]


[center Quiet!]


[center [b A large man leaned against the cell sliding a few trays of what could hardly be described as "Food." Bland gunk with a small glass of water for each subject.]]


[center Hope you like the new roommates "White Swordsman" maybe they'll last longer than the last ones! Hah!]


[center [b Eric had tilted his head confused. Paige had gazed at the man with a rather vicious look. Evelyn had simply looked at the ground her heart had sunk. A little bit of socializing almost.. For a moment made her forget where she was.]]


[center [+brown Oh thanks for the food!]]


[center Cheer bastard huh? That won't last. Well eat up you'll be needing it!]


[center [b And with that the large guard had began to leave the hallway. Evelyn's mouth was dry and her stomach was rumbling. Running to her tray she began to eat up. Rex had desperately wanted to ignore it to avoid letting the other catch on that he wasn't sleeping but.. Maybe he could say the guard woke him up? He couldn't fight it.. He was starving. Sitting up he rather awkwardly grabbed his tray. More gunk.. What was this gushy stuff? It smelled terrible and tasted twice as worse. Evelyn had quickly drunk the water before wiping her mouth satisfied. "She'll regret doing that.." Rex thought to herself. She had begun to scarf the food down. But she had started coughing and gagging. Eric had knelt over picking his own water up he offered it to her.]]


[center [+brown You okay?]]


[center [+darkgreen Ack!]]


[center [b She grabbed the water drinking half of it before she realized what she was doing. She took the glass and shoved it back to him.]]


[center [+darkgreen No! You gotta drink too! Thanks.. I didn't realize how gross it was.]]


[center [b "He.. Shared his drink?" In all of Rex's time here he never saw such a thing. They all had competed against one another here. Paige may have been harsh but she was right.. The testing could prove brutal here. Eric shook his head at Evelyn as he began to eat his food. Hacking and gagging he offered a small chuckle.]]


[center [+brown It's not that bad.. Oh and I guess Paige might not be wrong. All I've done here so far is some light sparring.]]


center [b Rex looked at the girl with her cold attitude he was shocked Eric had took it so well. Rex gulped looking at Paige yet again. She sure was pretty but at the same time... Scary. He wasn't good at talking to people in general but women was another league of difficult all together.]]

[center [+brown Well that's we got to eat huh? Maybe we can head out and get some exercise what do you say?]]

[center [b "He's.. Still in denial isn't he? Yup.. He seemed nice sure.. But crazy for sure."]]


[center [h3 Rex]]
[center [pic http://i.imgur.com/WKcBuKG.jpg]]

[center [b Rex took a long sigh at Eric's comment but had covered his mouth afterwards. He had than attempted to mask that sigh with a rather fake yawn. He didn't want to appear annoyed at Eric or anything. He just was shocked that Eric hadn't figured it out. Though Rex was surprised to hear this charismatic young man had done some sparring. Of course they didn't CHOOSE the test they were thrown in. Though the true reason Rex sighed was because Eric was in for a surprise. "Oh Eric.. It may start off with some light sparring but eventually.."]]

[center [b Rex remembered the fights being constant but simple enough it was till one cried uncle. Though in time that would change.]]

[center [b "Only one of you may leave the chamber" Rex shuddered remembering that first bloody bout. At first him and the other had refused to fight for several hours. Though as hunger had set in... his opponent let instinct take over. Almost took Rex's head with a surprise strike. Eric wouldn't have the heart to fight would he? Than again Rex knew not to judge a book by its cover.]]

[center [b He himself looked small weak and timid and in many ways he really was. He had even admitted he was "weak" maybe not as a fighter but as a person. The thought of being surrounded by others caused his chest to grow tight. He had no way of knowing how to handle these strangers. Sure he had liked the idea of making friends.]]

[center [b Back than he had loved sharing his interest with his old friends. He was a closet nerd through and through. Though he only ever had two friends he loved the chance to show them his hobbies. In fact despite he didn't seem the type. He loved the idea of spending time with a beautiful girl. Evelyn seemed downright adorable in fact! Just her cheery disposition almost stole a smile from the boy. Though he had fought the urge. She was just like a cutie from one of his favorite stories! He may have been anti social but he was painfully self aware he hated that about himself. He had wished he could actually act on his thoughts. To talk to others to make friends. Here he was overthinking to himself again rather than hopping in the conversation. Thinking about the past and.. Wait.. Who were those friends? Was that just another dream? Who was he thinking about? Was he really that lonely? Or was he just crazy?]]


[center [b  Although Eric seemed a little.. Well not all put together. That being said Rex couldn't help but enjoy his bright energy. Rex judged himself for admiring such a trait in such a crazy man.]]

[center [b Eric had patted at Rex and Paige with a rather wide grin. Wait.. Was he really serious? It seemed like he was trying to get them to come along with his crazy idea.]]

[center [+brown Who's ready to go?]]

[center [b Eric said as he moved his plate of half eaten "food" to the side.]]

[center [+brown Maybe when we head out Rex here can give me his real name!]]

[center [b True Rex had already given a name but Eric wasn't exactly happy with that answer. He wanted something a little more personal than just "subject Rex"]]

[center [b Paige blinked and looked at the man. "Hah.." she had to hold back laughter. He was certifiable! "This isn't a vacation.. You aren't being kept here for fun or for our own good." He'll break down.. And he'll be like the rest of us. Was that a good thing? Was being negative really helping Paige? She wanted to break out but.. Trying to with this lot? A sunshiny air headed girl. A crazy guy and moody silent over here. Yeah... No they'd just get her killed. Though Paige wouldn't admit it.. She missed having that bright energy that.. Hopeful outlook. She reminisced a bit.. On how she got here. Shaking her head a bit she took a deep breath trying to reclaim her focus. "Either he's crazy or the lab sent him here to test us. Either way? He can't be trusted no way no how." She was anxious and on guard, one might even say paranoid. Was it really sane to suspect they'd send in a teen to spy on them? Really? Well.. Here anything was possible. Eric had patted her and Rex before she swatted his hand away with a glare.]]


[center [+purple Don't you.. Ever touch me. Got it? You're crazy.. You know that why? Insane! We aren't going outside.. Ever all right? So get it through you're dense skull.. And leave me the hell alone!]]


[center [b Paige had marched across the room grabbing a blanket only to lay down. If she let her mind drift away to slumber.. In a way and if only for a bit.. She could escape from this dank dark godless place. Eric had stood for a moment never once had his smile wavered but his words for the moment had stopped.]]


[center [b Evelyn had walked over patting him on the shoulder. Her thoughts had begun to swirl in her mind. "Sure.. He may be a bit eccentric but.. His outlook? It's kinda cute and it's sweet too. I don't know if it will last but.. Well I for one won't rain on his parade.]]


[center [+darkgreen You might wanna give her a moment big guy.]]


[center [b Big guy was right, Eric was about 6'2 and he easily towered over Evelyn's frame though he managed to appear friendly all the same. He looked to her almost the way a child would have.]]


[center [+brown Did I.. Say something wrong?]]


[center [b Rex understood Paige.. To an extent. When Eric had placed his hand on him? He almost grabbed it.. He was ready to strike back. He hadn't been touched in so long.. Not unless it was an attack. Except.. When Rex looked down? He was holding Eric's wrist tight in a vice grip. "What..?" he had grabbed his hand and twisted it even. Eric had looked down almost like he hadn't noticed till now than looked to Rex. Rex looked up with panic an apologetic look scrawled on his face. He turned away quickly trying to fight the rising breaths. "Crap.. Crap they'll think I'm crazy.."]]


[center [b Evelyn wanted to tell Eric it was okay but.. Rex had taken her by surprise. Upon closer inspection.. He was.. Well it wasn't the time to be sure but.. Extremely handsome. She particularly liked his hair and the way it parted. However his reaction? Why had he reacted that way? Struck out in such a manner?]]


[center [+brown You okay Rex?]]


[center [+orange I.. Well... I-I..]]


[center [b Rex's panic was full blown now. Yeah the guy was off his rocker but it wasn't like Rex disliked him.. "What a first impression! Great the new cute girl will think you're nuts. Oh and the super bitch in the corner? She'll go mega hard on you! Oh great great great.. And Eric's gonna hate me right off the bat... Wonderful Rex.. Even in dire straits you don't know how to handle people.. Damn it all.."]]


OOC

Want the group to earn it a little more.


Next will be a bonding moment for Eric and Rex about Eric's attempted "Escape"

Edited Chapter one


[center [h3 Test]]


[center [i Drip Drip Drip]]


[center [+red Have you taken today's samples yet? So no change? That's disappointing well continue monitoring the subjects.]]

[center [i Drip drip drip drip]]

[center [+red And someone fix those damn pipes already.]]

[center [b As the water fell from the rusted pipes of the barren underground lab. So did the spirits of those who dwelled in such a place.]]


[center [b It almost looked more like an underground waterway or a sewer than a lab it was hard to believe any kingdom would fund this. It hardly looked legit though the drugs and tech were state of the art that much was for sure.]]


[center [b Though the machines never broke that wasn't to say other things did not. There was one such broken thing perhaps shattered even.]]


[center [+red Subject "Rex" he's been here for quite some time. He's lost plenty of cellmates, hasn't he? Well place the next three subjects here I doubt he'll last much longer. Subjects been nonresponsive for quite some time now.]]


[center [i Drip drip drip drip]]


[center [+blue But sir we are ordered two per--]]


[center [+red Nonsense we save more room this way I have more promising subjects to concern myself with. That will be all carry on.]]


[center [b The man adjusted his collar as he handed his clipboard to his female aid. She appeared young and rather frightened too. She was young and most certainly unprepared. How she ended up here was anyone's guess.]]


[center [h3 Day 364]]

[center [b Subject Rex had laid in his cell scribbling on the walls as usual. Though other subjects from near cells would attempt to catch his attention it was to no avail. The boy was gone all that remained was a husk a shell. Though that was not always the case. Once the boy had attempted to make such chit chat. Timid and awkward he hardly said much.]]


[center [b Though one by one the subjects would change again and again and again and again. Why bother talking to someone who wouldn't stay much longer?]]


[center [b Rex had fiddled with his hair laying in a brown tunic. One of the things he had missed most may have been the clothes they had taken away. When had that happened? How had that happened? It was hard to remember much of anything with all the shots.]]


[center [+orange Three hundred and... Sixty-Four tomorrow is a special day. A special day...]]


[center [b Rex stared at the ceiling to only cover his face with his arm. No sky again yeah almost as if he kept looking one day there wouldn't be a roof. That one day when he opened his eyes there would magically be a blue sky.]]


[center [b Not that he went out much in the first place. Or did he? It was hard to remember anything at all. Rex hated this feeling he could only remember a few faces. Parents? Lover? Siblings? These questions would plague the man for hours to hours a night. Enough for him to want to take a drill and--]]


[center [+orange Drill... Drill..... What are my drills today? Will I have to kill someone today?]]


[center [i Drip drip drip]]


[center [b As drops of water continued to hit the ground the boy had begun to shake. No longer were the drops of water from the pipe alone.]]


[center [b Rex had decided if he was to kill another or was pitted against another he would instead surrender his own life. That was selfish, wasn't it? To let someone else live in this hell hole? To find peace in death? Selfish... Selfish.... It was hard for the muddled boy to find right or wrong.]]


[center [+orange That's not right... Right right right.... no left? No, wait up? Or maybe down? Should I? Go down? Down down..]]


[center [b The boy rambled on as his words fell on deaf ears. As the boy's sweet voice clashed with the words he rambled on and on.]]


[center [h3 Eric]]


[center [+darkblue Subject "Knight" thick muscle tissue, dense bone structure. I suppose he was properly titled. Though his changes seem to only be around the body how boringly straightforward. The last guy made a nice lighter.]]


[center [b The woman spoke as she adjusted her glasses licking her lips appearing somewhere in her mid-thirties.]]


[center [+darkblue His cellmate is... Ahh, subject Rex that delicious little morsel. I wonder if our knight in shining armor taste just as sweet.]]


[center [pic http://orig12.deviantart.net/13ab/f/2014/321/9/0/fairy_fencer_f_fang__psd_download_by_conflictluka-d86r0cp.png]]


[center [b Subject Knight was a brown haired male yet to be stripped of his coat or belongings. Those were the rules down here obey those above you and keep your things. As long as it wasn't any weapons of course. As the guards shoved subject Knight into the cell. Rex had shot up hearing his cell cage open.]]


[center [+brown Oh heya! The names Eric pleasure to meet you.]]


[center [b The tall brown haired male smiled as the guards shut the gate as Rex stared at the man. Smiling? That won't last long he was one of those types. A man who held hope strong or just a delusional fool. Either way, they all broke the same it didn't matter who.]]


[center [+brown I heard we're getting two more roommates man it'll be cramped! So what's your name champ?]]


[center [b The male said as he sat beside Rex looking his way his mouth widened into a smile. Rex had noticed the name flash his teeth into a smile... An expression he hadn't been familiar with for some time.]]


[center [+orange I umm... I'm.... Well... I'm Subject Rex.]]


[center [b He said as he looked away rubbing the back of his neck looking away. It was harder to ignore someone that shared the same cell with you.]]
