Axel heard a knock on the door and he rushed to open it. There stood his former boss, Avron.
“I take it that you were too afraid to face the SC gang without me?” He asked with a smirk. Axel glared at him.
“Listen, I need to get a girl back and you are helping me. Did you bring your gang?” Axel asked, looking behind Avron to see if he did.
The room she was in was cold and windowless. The walls weren't made of stone, or anything, but they were painted black, making the room feel smaller than it was.
The man locked the door behind him and turned on a very dim lamp, just barely showing how sparse the amount of furniture was in there.
The man walked closer to Rasia as she shuffled back and hit the wall. He ripped the tape off her mouth. Rasia gave a small cry of pain.
"Don't bother screaming," he said. "Becuase you're not going anywhere."
"So," the leader of the SC said and got straight to the point. "You must have something Axel wants. And I want to know what it is. Also any other information ou have on him would be nice."
"W-What are you talking about?" Rasia's shaky voice said. "I don't have anything he wants."
"Wrong answer," he said and hit her across the face.
The next however long - she didn't know, it felt like an eternity to her - was pure horror for Rasia. Every time he would ask a question and she would answer what he considered "wrong" he would hit her. She'd beg him to stop but he wouldn't. He just kept on yelling at her and asking her things she didn't know.
When he left the room she was covered in bruises all over her body. She even had fingernail marks on her neck from when he had threatened to choke her right after she had punched him out of anger.
Rasia heard muffled voices outside the room she was in. She strained her ears to hear what they were saying. She could only make out bits and pieces.
"What if she really doesn't...I doubt that...not willing to bet Axel has grown a heart...obviously valuable to him...losing patience...If she doesn't...the girl dies."
"What if she really doesn't...I doubt that...not...bet on the chance that Axel has grown a heart...obviously valuable to him...wouldn't have let her go...So what are...losing patience...If she doesn't...the girl dies."
Axel and the gang had finally reached the SC headquarters. Axel gulped as he stared at the intimidating building that was towering over them, he sucked in a breath and got out of the car.
“Hey, press this button if you need backup. You know how dangerous the SC are.” Avron said in a stern tone.
Axel gave his old friend a smile. “Thanks, I honestly wouldn’t have the courage to do this without backup.” He said with a nervous laugh. Avron rolled his eyes. “Just go get your girlfriend and get out. Easy and simple as that.” Avron snapped.
Axel grumbled and looked at a ladder that was leading to a tall tower. He smirked, the SC were horrible when it came to traps and security. Even a baby could sneak inside.
She heard footsteps walking away from the room she was in and sighed in relief.
She was going to die.
She thought back to the park. It had taken three bullets in the chest to kill Axel even though he was still recovering from the night before.
And another strange thing.
There had been no blood.
Now Rasia was confused. She knew he had blood, she had performed surgery on him herself. She just couldn't think of how he had survived for so long and then no blood coming out when he had been shot. She may not be thinking straight, she was probably forgetting some variable.
Axel started climbing the ladder and finally got to the top after a few minutes. He peeked in and saw Rasia’s head. Axel had a huge smile on his face, but it immediately disappeared when he saw what condition Rasia was in. He knocked on the bars hard to try to get her attention.
