The Devein Portals Chapter 8Chapter 8
Jay awoke to find herself covered in a damp, but cool blanket. She sat up, and found that for the second time in two days, her head was pounding. She groaned and forced herself to her feet leaning against the tree for support, before noticing that she had a bandage wrapped around her hand. She glanced around to find everything from the bags laid out around a small clearing. She looked for the river, but couldn't see any sign of it, although she thought she could hear it some distance away. She looked around for Alex, and noticed him sitting dozily at the far side of the clearing. He didn't seem to have noticed that she was awake so she cleared her throat to catch his attention. He turned his head, and noticing that she was awake, jumped to his feet and ran across to her. He looked as though he was about to hug her, but at the last second thought better of it. He stooped down and picked up one of the first aid packs and rummaging inside. He held out his hand, and dropped a box

Alex opened his eyes, and was immediately wide awake. He sat up, and reflexively looked at his watch, before remembering that it was broken. He cursed and looked over to where Jay was sleeping. He slowly got up-quietly, so as not to wake her, and walked closer to the river, planning on seeing what time it was based on the position of the sun. He reached a spot where there was a gap in the trees, and looked up, to see that the sun was directly above him. About midday, he figured and headed back, to find Jay stirring. As he reached her, she sat up, "What time is it," she asked, shaking herself fully awake. "About midday, Alex replied. He walked over to his bags and grabbed a bottle of water, taking a few sips to quench his thirst. He looked over at Jay to find her doing exactly the same. There was so much that he wanted to know about her, and he resolved to ask her as they were walking. They both gathered their things and discussed which way to go. "There was a small triangle o

The shadowy face became visible as he shone his torch at them. His face turned to a mask of surprise, then anger, then disbelief. "Alex? What the hell are you doing here?" His expression changed to anger. "You do realise that we know that you left and that you're working for the resistance, there's a price on your head, and here you are, messing with one of our top priority tasks. Are you trying to get yourself killed, coz that's what's gonna happen eventually, when they get you back in that interrogation room. They'll torture as much as they need to find where you hid that key"
"Nice to see you too, Michael." Alex said quietly. He had slumped back and his expression was that of a caged animal, panicked and hopeless. "You know," Michael continued, "Vipers given orders to do whatever's necessary to find you and get that information out of you. Plus..." he mumbled as an afterthought, "If I caught you, it's just the reason the Viper needs to promote me to the council, he's wante
The Devein Portals Chapter 5Chapter 5
"I was born almost 16 years ago. I had just turned one, when the new procedures were introduced. My mother and my father eventually split up because my father was very much in The Vipers good books, in fact, they were actually quite good friends, and naturally, my father-Kyle- was all for the new regime. My mother, Lauren, on the other hand was completely against it, mainly because of how a lot of people wouldn't be able to cope with the changes. My brother -Michael- was four when my dad took off, he took us too, hoping to train us to work for the Viper with him. My brother and I were taken to be trained as soon as we arrived and by the time I was 5, I could throw a hell of a punch. Michael grew up to love the lifestyle but secretly, I hated it. When I had just turned 12, I heard news that my mother held a key position in the resistance and so I bided my time until I could run away. It took me almost 2 months to find any whisper of the resistance, and when I

"Jay?!" Alex's expression was thunderous, as he hung above her in the canopy. Jay bit back a smile. Her parachute had also been caught in the branches, but luckily she hadn't been too high up, and had managed to cut her way free with the knife at her waste. She had jumped towards the ground, grabbing hold of a strong-ish looking vine to break her fall; it had worked fine, except for the fact that the palm of her hand had been ripped to shreds by the spines that the vine had been covered in. Luckily, as she had checked the bags, she found that nothing had been damaged in the fall. She'd zipped the bags back up and slung them on into the most comfortable position she could find, before heading out to search for Alex, pausing only to pick up the knife that had landed on the ground about 30ft away. Almost immediately, the chute was out of sight and Jay was alone in the forest. After about 35 minutes, she had stooped to the ground and picked up a large leaf, having noticed that it

"I can't believe we're just gonna sit and wait" Jay groaned, "I could get us out of here in a flash."
"And I've already told you, if those guys come back and find were not here, all hell will break loose, we have to wait for contact to make sure it's clear" Alex replied patiently, "although you'll have to teach me how to pick locks as quickly as you do. Where did you learn how to do that?"
Jay looked incredulous, "We're about to try and escape a plane, containing some of the most
dangerous people in the world, who are -in turn- protected by even more dangerous people, who just happen to have been trained by the Viper himself in loads of different martial arts and your worried about where I learned how to pick locks?" She was going to say more but, the sound of footsteps in the corridor stopped her short. Jay and Alex simultaneously moved to either side of the door, getting ready for the door to open, and for the plan to be set in motion.
The door opened and a slim person ste

Jay opened her eyes and immediately wished she hadn't as the whole world started to spin. She had a raging headache caused by the bash on her head, which had also given her a rather large cut, -which didn't bother her too much, she'd had worse and anyway it would heal really quickly-, what bothered her was that the resulting blood had caused her hair to become matted and tangled, it would be a nightmare to try and get the knots out. Jay shook off the dizziness and tried to stand but was only rewarded with a wave of nausea; she slumped back against the wall with a groan. Where the hell was she? When she concentrated, she was sure that the room was in motion and that it was slightly more difficult to breathe than it should have been. Maybe she was on a plane or something, either way, she needed to get out, but, she figured, that probably wasn't happening anytime soon.
After a few minutes sitting in the dim light, A door was flung open on the far side of the room revealing the
The Devein Portals.Chapter one-
Jay opened her eyes and sat up, only to find that it was virtually impossible to see anything. All that she could make out in the dim light were what looked like lots of boxes and heaps of junk piled around the room. Jay tried to remember where she was, or even how she got here, but nothing came to mind, everything was blank, all she knew for certain was that she had never seen this place-or anything even remotely like it- in her life.
She stood up and cautiously started to make her way to what looked like a window. Well there was a sliver of light coming from there anyway, and that was good enough. In the near darkness, Jay tried to navigate her way through the room without bashing into anything, not that it did any good.
After nearly toppling over 3 of the precariously stacked piles and knocking her elbow rather badly on what appeared to be an umbrella stand, Jay managed to fling open the heavy curtains and was momentarily blinded by the bright light that came streaming
