At that moment, almost as if the police controlled the traffic in New York, it came to a complete stand still. The Hunts master had to turn at the last second to avoid rear ending a car which just suddenly seemed to stop.
“Damn it” Yelled the hunts master as he slammed his foot on the break. The road is clogged. We sat there for a moment watching the police car get closer. It then pulled up beside our vehicle. The police officer got out of the car with his gun raised.
“Slowly step out of the vehicle and put your hands up” He said. With that the hunts master slammed his foot on the pedal, and we took off, not along the road, but towards the side of the road.
“Hang on” the hunts master instructed, “We are going through the park”
We felt a small bump as the car hit the curb. The police officer yelled something at us, but I couldn’t quite make out what he said. He also fired about 2 shots, both of them warning shots and they did not seem to hit the car. The Hunts master gathered speed as we shot through the park, I don’t think the Police officer had it in him to follow us. The park was still largely empty but every now and then there would be a person who would be very shocked by car speeding through the park, and run to get out of the way. I was on edge every time we passed a tree, it moved so fast past us. “Slow Down!!” I told the hunts master. He didn’t listen, only accelerated, then swerved heavily to avoid a tree.
“What you trying to do man?” Jake asked the hunts master, glancing nervously at the speedometer.
“We have to make good time” The hunts master replied. “It won’t be long before they decide to kill Haley and the twins. I want to find out who is behind this and handicap them for good, even if it means the handicap is death”
Then I saw beyond the bushes, the road on the other side. “We are going to make it” I said happily.
“Of course we are” The hunts master replied. Then I saw something that made my hope drop. The officers backup had come fast and was already around the side of the park waiting for us.
“Hold on” The hunts master instructed, as we shout through the last set of bushes and came crashing down onto the road. With that he spun the wheel till we were facing down the road and drove, I saw 3 Police cars, suddenly spring into action and start to chase. ‘Looks like the police seem to have nothing better to do at the moment’ I thought. We passed a car which honked at us because we were on the wrong side of the road. Without warning the huntsman suddenly turned down a side street at high velocity. I could definitely feel the turning force on that on and at one stage during the turn, it felt like the car was going to tip, but it stayed level on the road, and we drove off down the road in high speed. Luckily for us it was too sudden and too late for the police cars and they had to screech on the breaks but they missed the turn. Te huntsman decided to lose them by making another turn before they could turn around and come back to the road.
“Looks like we’ve lost them” The hunts master said, turning down another street just to make sure. We continued down the street, still speeding a little bit. “We have to make up for lost time” The hunts master instructed.
Rose climbed her way uneasily through the slippery garbage chute, Praying intently that no more garbage came down to arrest her slow ascent through the slippery tube, It took almost all of her effort to keep herself lodged in the tube, with the sides being very slippery. Luckily for her it was only 5 meters in height, but it was a slow 10 meter ascent as she kept feeling herself slip.
“I wish I had some rope” She said to herself out loud. She then forced herself to be quiet when she heard 2 voices at the top of the chute.
“At least tip it out before you throw it in the bin” One of the voices said.
“Its just boiling hot water”, the other one replied “Who cares if this metal urn is full of water, I can’t be bothered to tip it out.”
Rose Froze. She hoped she didn’t hear what she just heard. Someone was going to throw a metal urn full of boiling hot water down the chute. She looked up, then her fears were confirmed. Coming down the chute, was the urn. She looked down and squeezed her eyes shut. The water hit her, burning where it touched, Rose was in immense pain as she was scolded by the searing water, she almost let go in the pain, but somehow forced herself to hold on, Then she was hit in the head by the falling hot metal urn. The metal burned her even worse, the combination of this and the now, slippery wet metal walls made her start sliding down. She was in huge pain, she still felt burning, she felt as if she just had to let go, Which she eventually did, she fell back down the chute hitting it hard on the way down, then fell back down into the pile of garbage. Rose bit her lip to keep herself from screaming. ‘Argh what a day’ She thought to herself, still feeling the burning of the hot water and metal urn. She lay against the garbage. What could she do? She wondered, she was almost too sore to move.
The hunts man pulled out quickly onto the main road, not paying attention, he collided straight into the side of one of the police cars which was searching for us, with quite a bit of velocity. I felt a very hard Jolt, followed by the sound of smashing. I hit my head hard. When the car eventually came to a halt, I was very dizzy. I slowly undid my seatbelt then stood there for a second. I started to fiddle about at the back door, eventually managing to unlock it. I felt something wet below my nose. I put my hand up, and felt blood. My nose felt numb, I hoped I hadn’t broken it. I slowly crawled out of the car to look straight at someone’s shoe. I looked up, it was a lawman from one of the other cars. He had a gun pointed right at my head.
“Don’t move or I will shoot” he ordered. “You are all under arrest.”
“Welcome all to this emergency meeting in congress that the President has called. He unfortunately extends his apologies that he cannot be here today as he is with the UN in New York, but has asked me, as Vice President to speak on his behalf. I hope all representatives have arrived as the president ordered. As you all may know, not to long ago, it has been confirmed that monsters have attacked a building in New York. We don’t know as of yet what these monsters were or where they came from, but we need to discuss a possibly emergency policy until we can get some facts….”
*Back In New York*
I looked up into the barrel of the gun and sighed. There was no way I was going to try to take it on. I collapsed to the ground from my crawl position and placed my hands on my head. The cop bent over me in order to cuff me, when suddenly I heard a voice.
“That’s it, I’m sick of all this fiddling y’all, Dragon Up.”
I recognised the voice, it was from the dragon. Ah crap, he is about to do something stupid I thought. I sensed the officer that was about to cuff me stop, and I could tell I was no longer in his focus. He took 2 slow steps back, then yelled out “MONSTER!!!” I looked up at him, he looked pale, yet he also looked like he couldn’t believe what he was seeing. I turned and looked back, seeing the dragon form of the kid, which I had encountered before. The police were all slowly retreating not knowing exactly how to handle the situation. I watched hoping that they would run to get backup so that we could have time to escape. They began whispering amongst themselves, then in a sudden movement they ran for their cars and got in, starting the engines and very quickly speeding away.
I slowly stood up, I still felt a little dizzy and stumbled a bit, but apart from that I was fine. The car was no longer in a fit driving shape and neither was the police car we hit. It also seemed lucky that none of the occupants of our car were hurt that badly considering the speed we were travelling at when we impacted the police car. The police in that car weren’t so lucky. I limped towards the police car and looked inside. Neither officer was moving. I didn’t know and I wasn’t game to check if they were dead, I just knew we had to leave because the guy I conned would have been very close to the garage by now.
I head a loud crash as the hunts master kicked open the door of our wrecked vehicle and slowly but steadily stood up out of it. He turned to me. “Here’s your Pistol” he said, throwing it on the floor at my feet. “Your case is still in the car as well.” He continued.
‘Ahh my case, I almost forgot about that in the excitement’ I thought. I walked over to the back of the car and pulled my case out. I quickly inspected it for damage, then I grabbed its handle and started to walk away.
“Lets go to the garage” I said out aloud. With that the dragon transformed back to his human self and we continued the journey. Fortunately I knew a short cut to the garage.
The sound of metal clanking snapped Rose to attention from a dizzy hallucination she was having. Her eyes shot open. She realised it was someone opening the door, she slowly sat herself up, she was still in a bit of pain, but she was not going to let that get in the way of potential freedom. She crawled around behind the pile of semi compacted garbage. There was more clanking as more locks were opened, then a loud one as they forced the door open. Rose could see that they were garbage removalists.
“Ahh Damn it the garbage hasn’t been compacted properly” One of them said.
“It doesn’t matter, well just dispose of it anyway” the other replied. Rose Slowly crept out from behind the garbage pile. The 2 started inspecting the garbage pile and prepared it for removing. Rose tiptoed slower to make sure they couldn’t hear her. She snuck up and pressed herself against the wall. She slowly moved along the wall till she reached the door.
“Cya fellas” She said out loud stepping outside the door and she watched the stunned look on their faces as she swung it shut, then locked it. Right next to the door there was a button with a sign above it saying compact garbage. ‘Should I press it?’ She thought to herself, feeling tempted for a bit of revenge but then she decided against it. ‘Your lucky today.’ She thought and continued. She was just outside the complex that she had been imprisoned in. “Well I guess I had better get Haley” Rose thought as she stepped towards the complex.
