As the title said this is an older story I wrote but figured I would share it anyways. I will be posting it in pieces just because it is a bit lengthy for one post and I don't want to continue posting it if people don't want to read it. CnC is appreciated but please don't bother with grammar or spelling error, I honestly don't care and it isn't like I am using it for anything. It was just a summer project from a couple summers ago. So yeah I will post the first part and please comment if you want me to post more. Chapter 1 Glancing around the vast barren dessert I could see dust sweeping past the giant sand dunes. I didn't know how far I have walked nor do I want to know; all I knew for sure was that I was hot, tired, and thirsty. In the distance I noticed surreal sight; a fresh water oasis lay about 100 meter straight ahead. I gathered the little energy I had left and sprinted towards it. As I gained distance, the water began to dissipate. It took me a minute to realize it was all just a moorage but it ended up being a minute too long. Before I could even stop running I collapsed into the hot dry sand. I awoke to the strange but pleasant feeling of air-conditioning. I tried to open my eyes and look around but I was too tired and week to do so. After dozing off for about 5 minutes I had an itch. While attempting to scratch my itch I realized that my arms and legs were bound to a long metal table by leather straps. I open my eyes to see that I am in some sort of laboratory. Warm thin strings lay across my face. I figured out that there were probably wires attached to my head. My mind raced with questions like where am I and what am I doing here. As I looked around the room memories started flooding back like a dam that had recently broke. I remembered that I was a prisoner slash lab-rat at an unknown location. I didn't know who the man that was holding me was. A tube inserted into my arm sent a tranquilizing drug through my body. They would remotely knock me out before approaching me to ensure that their identity was sealed. That was the reason I have never seen my captor. Before the haze completely cleared I could feel the tranquilizer rush through the tube and into my body. Next thing I know I am in a white padded room; no wires, no needles. There was a Plate of food sitting on the ground in the middle of the room. The meal consisted of a plain bagel and a single slice of cantaloupe. I honestly wasn't able able to tell if this was suppose to be breakfast or dinner. It didn't matter anyways because this might be my only meal for a couple of days. All my meals were hand held because they feared that if they give me utensils that I might try to kill myself with them. The only other thing in my room was a sink and toilet. There was no windows not even a door from what I could see. I was their rat confined to my cage till it was time for another experiment. There was nothing to do in the room except sleep. So that is how I spent my days, sleeping when I'm not in a drug induced coma.
