The End:Story One
The Great Escape Pt1
By: David K. Montoya


I woke up before sunrise; couldn’t sleep last night. I kept replaying the plan of escape over and over in my head, trying to work things out to the finest detail. Also the side of my neck throbbed, where I had been bitten the other day. Of course, the first thing that popped into my head was that I had contracted the ‘Sickness’ and was slowly turning into an Unlucky.

Other than the wound, I felt pretty good. If I were to become sick, it would take up to four days to show any signs of being ill. Then my thoughts turned to Rich, and if he had lived through the night. There were no expectations—after all he had lost so much blood—but still I hoped he was strong enough to survive.

I got out of bed and walked over to a window; it looked like it was going to be a nice day. I thought the plan over once more and decided to act. For the most part everyone in Palace City was still asleep, which was an added bonus in our efforts to escape from this place.

I know the place was gorgeous, and had things that probably no other would dream of having. But still it had an unpleasant feel within the walls. More was happening in the shadows and everyone ignored it; frightened of what would happen to them if they were to do otherwise. So the people would rather live a fabricated life than face what was really out there.

And whatever was actually happening, the only sure thing that could be said about it was that the Emperor was the man behind it all. The residents looked on him as a living saint; but he is no saint—just a devious old bastard who came to create Palace City. I’m not sure what was to become of him in the end, but if he were to get in the way he would have to die!

After getting dressed I went out to find Michael’s room. I walked up the hallway that lead to the elevator, attempting to determine which room was my son’s. It wasn’t to hard too locate; there were two armed guards standing at his door. Guess the Emperor saw Mike as a possible threat.

It came as a surprise to me that the two guards allowed me into my son’s room without any sort of confrontation. Once inside, I found Michael still asleep. For a moment I flashed back to seeing him in his bed when he was a little boy. As my kid lay there, he still had that innocent look about him that he did as a child.

But I did not have time to reminisce; we had to make our move. After a few good nudges, he finally woke up. Mike sat up and rubbed his eyes, then eventually looked up at me with a dazed expression. Once I knew he was completely awake, I began to explain what was going on.

He and I were going to head back to where the Emperor was holding Richard as prisoner. If he was still alive, we were going to free him and meet up with the others. By that time, the girls should have gotten their hands on the key to the SUV and located it. Then we will have to go back the other way to find Tina, who will meet us in the back where we first came in. She will have our stuff ready and waiting. As soon as we have everything loaded in, it should be smooth sailing from there out.
