Chapter Two: Experimentation
   A couple of weeks pass for the both of them, the usual experiments, pain, and suffering has lessened. By the end of a month, both of them are healed fully, but it will not last long.

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
   Susan sat in her room, strapped to a chair as usual. After she had attempted to pick the lock with a broken fork, and then stab the orderly that came to stop her, she had been confined to the chair. She sat in patience for days now, with a curled lip set in a scowl. She kept thinking about the boy she had met, and found that her worst fear, would be to end up like him. No hope, no purpose.

   After the yellow gas punishment, it had taken a week for her to breath normaly, and another week passed before she could move her arm without pain. She still had healing stitches, and the scar wouldn't be too noticable, but it was itching like crazy. The welts had gone down and faded, but she was always thirsty. She shuddered as she remembered the terror of the gas closing in around her, and prayed that chemical weapons wouldn't be used on her again.

   Susan fought against the fear that was steadily growing inside her, knowing that she couldn't let it take hold. If she was afraid of them, they would own her, and she would not let that happen. She set her jaw and glared up at the camera in hatred, taking a silent oath to fight until the end.

   She bowed her head, and began to try and wiggle her hands free again. Her wrists were rubbed raw. She heard the key twist the knob, and she raised her head to watch the door open. An orderly and three brutes entered. The pale woman smiled, "Time to go.

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
William stared at the stained, black and white speckled ceiling. Even here, there were old blood-spatters that had gone un-cleaned up there. His dark eyes drifted lazily from one spot to the other as he lay perfectly still and relaxed, even though he was strapped to the gurny.
He idly chewed on the plastic gag they had forced between his teeth and felt it scrape up and down under his ears. He wondered what they had in store for him today. Injections? Electrodes?

His thoughts were cut short by the door opening with a rattle. Another patient, a man with dead eyes like his, was wheeled into place next to him. Another one, a woman this time, was placed by that guy. And then they rolled that girl into place on his other side, and suddenly he wasn't relaxed anymore.

This wasn't that odd. They often had two or four subjects taking the same test. But why her? Why put them together? Maybe their stats were the same... if she had broken already. Looking over at her, he could definatley tell she wasn't.

A female orderly walked in carrying a shiny silver tray with four tall, thin plastic blue cups on it. She smiled and set on a table by the wall. "Today the subjects will be testing a formula created to make salt water drinkable. If you don't drink it you will be punished." Her smile never wavered. She was kinda pretty, and she had very nicely styled auburn hair. William called her Val in his mind, short for Valerie. He didn't know why. She just seemed like a Val.

The people who had rolled them in started hooking them up to monitors and pressing sensor pads onto their skin. They hooked them all up to catheters, which to William was the sign that they would likely be in this room for awhile. He turned his head to look at that girl again, definate anger and dislike in his eyes. She was gagged like him.

Down the line, the bouncers lifted the other woman's gurny so that she was in a sitting position. They removed her gag and held a cup to her lips. She drank without a struggle, and coughed slightly when it was all gone. As a reward, they didn't put the gag back on her.

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
   Susan kept her eyes on the boy, wide and intese. Her hands were clenched into tight fists, and she was breathing rapidly. She took her eyes off of him for a moment, to watch the other man drink the liquid without the bat of an eyelid. They kept his gag off.

   She debated as the tray was brought over to them. She wanted to talk to the boy, but she didn't want to drink. Their conversation would be recorded, she was sure. Did he want to talk to her? She turned to the look of anger he was giving her, and had mixed feelings. Would it be bad? Probably. But, it was better than nothing.

   Her gag was removed, and instantly she said veheminately, "Drop dead!"
   The orderly smiled, "Put this in your mouth." she brought the cup to her lips. Susan leaned back in her chair, the hair on the back of her neck standing on end. Reluctantly, she opens her lips and the cup is tilted to pour the liquid into her mouth. Susan gags reflexively, and doesn't swallow. "Swallow." the woman orders, the slightest note of annoyance in her voice. She pinches Susan's nose, and forces her to swallow.

   Coughing, Susan glares at the orderly and looks to the boy, her nose wrinkled in disgust.

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
William said nothing, and drank the extremely salty water without struggling at all. He had been forced to drink much worse. The orderly tipped the empty cups into the trash, and turned back to smile with sickly sweetness. "If you get thirsty, ask and we'll give you more."
Then they all filed out, closing and locking the door behind them. William fumed silently, refusing to turn his head and look at the girl. The muscles in his jaw leapt as he clenched his teeth, staring vehemently at the opposite wall. He waited for her to say something first. It was her fault that it was harder for him to die now, and although he had a few choice things to say, he stayed quiet.

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
   Susan kept her eyes on him as she glared. After a few tense and silent minutes, she asked abruptly, "Changed you mind?" She raised an eyebrow, and cocked her head to one side, to watch his reaction. A small part of her enjoyed watching him squirm under his own emotions, and she only needed to wait for them to blow out.

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
William closed his eyes briefly, but when he opened them again he was still determindly staring at the wall. "No." he answered in a quiet voice that nevertheless sounded hard. What did she expect? That her one visit would undo five years of pain and suffering? That a kiss would make it all better? He couldn't believe her audacity.

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
   Susan scoffed, "So, you'll just stay here until you die? Alone. And in pain? Figures I would bump into the guy who'd given up." she sighed explosively and tugged at the bonds out of habit, grumbling under her breath.

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
William leaned his head back against the upright gurny, listening to the aged cushion crackle under his weight and movement. A hopeless smile barely brushed the corners of his mouth. "I've not quite given up. There really is no escape from this place. So I decided to escape the one way I can." At that, he turned to look at her, traces of anger still lingering in his expression, but mostly it was calm, fatalistic determination. And she saw that he was ready to die. Right then, at that moment. She saw that he wanted it, more than anything.

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
   Susan couldn't help it as her mouth went slack in surprise at his expression. How someone could be so low was astonishing to her. She shook her head, leaning toward him as far as the chair would allow, "I will get out of here." she spat, her voice a furious whisper, "I will live, and I will get the man who put me in here. I am going to live." she said, almost furiously, her eyes alive with an insane fire.

   She sat back, taking a deep breath to calm herself. It was another minute before she was able to look at him again, "I forgot to ask. What's your name?"

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
William had sedately looked away when she started hissing and spitting, trying to keep his heart rate down. He didn't understand why he reacted to her like this, and it irritated him. His face, however, trained by years of lying through his teeth even when he was in pain, remained passive, though he became faintly pink high in his cheeks.
When she asked his name, he turned to look at her again now that she seemed to have slightly calmed down.
"William."

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
   "I'm Susan." she said, her voice dry. She shook her head again, working her right wrist to try and get it out of the tight, thick velcro bonds. "I've been here for maybe, three months. How long have you been here?"

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
   Susan leaned forward again, "Oh my.. How've you lasted so long?" she asked softly, her eyebrows coming together with what could be concern.

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
William looked at her with something akin to annoyance. "Not by trying at all. They won't let me die." He no longer cared about what he said in front of cameras. Clearly they knew what he was up to, and intended to foil him at every turn. He had no more hope; he would die when he was old and gray.

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
   Susan gave him an irritated look, her mouth quirked to the side, "Did you ever think that, by trying, it could get you killed?" she asked abruptly, her eyebrows raised expectantly.

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
William gave her a quirky half smile, sarcastic and snarky, but still having a surprisingly pleasing affect on his face. That area of the room seemed to light up temporarily. "I tried that for the first few years. Never seemed to do the trick."

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
   Susan smiled back slightly, but she twitched, and shook the expression off her face. Her wrist would start bleeding soon, if she didn't stop, but she felt like she could move her hand a bit further, "There are people out there, who need me to help them. They don't know what I know." she looked at him, "Don't you have something out there? Or someone?"

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
William's face immediately went into lockdown. Eyes dead, no expression. He turned away from her and wrestled with his inner feelings, determining not to say anything about his parents. Thinking of them was much too painful.

Re: Chapter Two: Experimentation
   Susan nodded, "So you do! her wrist was killing her, but she kept twisting it, "Don't you want to see that person again? We can help each other." she pressed, not even sparing a glance at the two, glassy eyed participants.
