"I hate this" Ashley said angrily, slamming her hands down on the bed and causing it to rattle.

"Could you stop complaining and go to sleep?" I Asked sleepily. I rolled over and faced the wall, trying to ignore her.

"How can I sleep? We've got to get out of here!"

"Yup, lets. TOMORROW!" I yawned and closed my eyes.

"Get up will you! You're the early bird between us!" she said, throwing the cover off

"FINE!" I yelled standing up "What do you want me to do? We're in a concrete cell in case you forgot!"

She looked around for a second and tried to think of something. "Ummm..." was all she said.

"Ummm?" I said annoyed. "UMMM? You've kept me up to try and escape and now that you have, all you can say is UMMM?"

She sighed. "I need your help to come up with a plan!"

I nodded "Yeah and I need to sleep, cause I am so tired I can't think" I said sitting down on the bed and resting my head in my hands.


The group had split up and Marc-Andre, Kat and I were walking to where the base is supposed to be. We could hear a motor in the distance and it was getting closer and closer.

"That sounds big." I said to Kathryn.

A spotlight came on and it started moving around.

"Cover!" Marc-Andre said. We all dove into a ditch and waited for the vehicle to pass.

Kathryn said "I guess there must be soemthing out here after all."

I glanced at the disappearing vehicle "It's definitely not one of ours"

"Let's keep moving," Marc-Andre said, "Stay double alert."

"No problem there." Kathryn said, a little shaken by the close call.

"You ok?" I asked her.

"I'm fine" She said with a forced smile "Come on, Lets' go"

We continued our trek toward the base.


I looked around and tried desperately to find a way out of this cell.

Just then a guard walked by and I got an idea.

Mary-Kate must have read my mind cause she hissed "No! Ashley! You can't flirt with the guard!"

I smiled "Watch me!" I said moving over to the bars.

"Hey there handsome." I said smiling.

The guard looked behind him, when he realized no one was behind him he turned back around and pointed to himself.

I nodded and smiled at him.

He got a goofy expression on his face and strolled over to me. His body language totally oozed arrogance. The total opposite of Marc-Andre, man I missed him!

I puckered my lips and curled my finger telling him to come closer for a kiss. He inched closer but was stopped by the metal bars. I did an 'unlock' motion with my hand. He looked uncertain about unlocking the cell, it was then that I unleashed my ultimate weapon; blow him a kiss and a wink.

"Oh Brother" I heard Mary-Kate mutter in disgust. I don't think the guard noticed har thankfully.

The guard slipped the key into the lock and I swallowed nervously. The door swung open and he stepped into the cell.

He came closer and closer. I reached behind me and picked up something really hard, I took a swing at the guard and hit him right in the kisser, he fell to the floor, out cold. I looked at what I had hit him with and I noticed it was that small loaf of bread they had given us for supper.

"Woah" I whispered to myself.

I glanced at Mary-Kate who was staring at me in shock.

"Come on!" I said motioning to the open door.
