Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
William's eyes were closed, and looked sunken in his drawn face. His skin was wrinkled and dry. "There's no difference between life and death in this place." he answered. "Why can't you see that?"

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
   Susan was finding it easier to talk now, and could wiggle her fingers and toes, "I'm no' a qhuiter."

"Me neither. I'm trying my hardest to get out of this place. The only way possible." He was rapidly tiring. It was taking to much energy to talk to her; he just wanted to sleep. Forever, really.

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
William sighed, raising one arm to rest over his stomach. The knuckles in his hand stood out sharply. "Me too." He also wanted to tell her that he wasn't going to go with her the next time she tried to leave, but he couldn't bring himself to say it. Perhaps because he wasn't sure. She was just so... persuasive.

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
   Closing her eyes, Susan found herself listening to his harsh breathing. With the relaxant still keeping her under, she quickly fell asleep, despite the worries, plans and confusion that buzzed through her brain.

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
William slipped into a doze. His throat was so sore and he was so thirsty he couldn't fully sleep. But after awhile he did drift off and lose awareness. He had been listening to her breathing too. It was calming.

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
   When Susan woke up, a few of the machines that she was hooked up to were gone. She raised a hand to rub her eyes, and turned her head to look to William's bed.

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
He was there, strapped down as she was. The machines were still hooked up to him and he appeared to be asleep. He looked a little healthier than he had when they had fallen asleep. He looked fuller, less deflated and empty. Some of the sags in the skin on his bare arms were gone.
It was really amazing what the science this facility had developed could do. Now only if they would use it for good.

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
   Susan watched him sleep, knowing that she had... almost all the time in the world from a certain point of view. She drummed her fingers against the bed, growing impatient. After a couple hours, she spoke up, "Hey."

He didn't open his eyes, but his eyebrows twitched. "Leave me alone," he croaked at her.

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
"Get used to it," came the even answer. His fingers tapped a few times on his bedspread, but his face remained calm. Neutral. If he could resist the maniacs, he could resist her. Right?

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
   Susan tried. She really did, but it did not last long. She turned to look at him again, "How've you tried to get out of here?"

William pursed his lips together. "I've tried to die," he answered in as even a tone as he had used before. "Any way I could."

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
William now wished he hadn't spoken, because now he had to keep going. Sighing, he dredged his memory for those years when he had tried to get away.
"Well. I ran for it whenever I could. I killed orderlies. I crawled in air ducts until I got too big and stuck. I nearly died trying to break through a window with electrified wires running through it. All the windows in this place have that mesh. Bullet proof, and escape proof. All doors to the outside require a keyed in passcode, an ID swipe, and a handprint. Once I knocked out some guard after he had typed in his code, swiped his card, and pressed his hand against the pad. I thought I was going to make it, but the alarm went off and the door didn't open. The sensor can tell if the person touching it is unconscious. And I had no way of making anyone do it under duress. It was pure luck that I got that far once anyway. Never got that far again. Never will."
After he was done speaking, William closed his eyes and sighed slowly through his nose. He wondered if he would ever get out of this horrible place.

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
   Susan felt a wave of disappointment wash over her, and moaned softly. She closed her eyes, and shook her head. For once, she didn't have anything to say. She was silent, as she searched for a thought that would somehow get them past those obsticles. She couldn't think of anything.

William turned his head to look at her, dark eyes lifeless. "I told you. The only escape is death."

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
   Susan scowled at him, her eyes lighting up, "I've defied the odds twice now. Eventually, I will find a way out." she looked back up to the ceiling, muttering, "They can't stop me from trying."

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
William shook his head and closed his eyes, looking away from her again. "That won't stop them from trying to stop you, either. They'll just keep hurting you and hurting you until you'd do anything to stop the pain, permanently." He turned his head to look at her again. "That's the only thing that's kept me sane, girl. The knowledge that they can't keep me here forever, that eventually I'd die and it would be over. I don't understand how you can't see."
He really couldn't. Her fire for life awakened long-suppressed, confusing feelings in him that he couldn't describe, but it also genuinely puzzled him.

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
   Susan clenched her hands into fists, "I don't understand your submission. And I don't understand this place." she turned to stare at the camera in the corner, and glare with an unblinking gaze, "I've had a dream for years. They can't crush my dreams. I'll run until I get there." she muttered through clenched teeth, her eyes still locked on the camera.

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
The camera's black eye stared impassively back, and William sighed, turning his head away. He didn't want to talk to her anymore. It hurt. He wished they would take her away, and that he would never see her again. But, to his surprise, the thought of never seeing her again caused pain as well. He closed his eyes, squeezing them tightly shut. What was happening? He felt so... broken. He had thought that he had only fooled them into thinking he was broken. He had been a cold, steel-hard thing inside, so that the monstrous things done to him in this place hurt less.
But she was breaking him. It really, really hurt, but it wasn't the same kind of pain given by the doctors and orderlies in this awful place. He couldn't name it, couldn't place it. But just because it was different didn't mean it hurt any less.
