Story Time: Orphane Sory Chapter 1-5

Post by Squirrel500 on Mon May 05, 2014 8:12 pm

Chapter One: The Orphanage

The orphanage sat at the top of the hill, it was an old building made of brick and vines climbed the building from the ground to the roof. Front lawn was littered with metal children’s toys and rusted playground equipment.
The children here were mostly boys, boys who misbehaved and were sent here to be punished. There were seven children in all living at the orphanage, seven young men who had fallen out of line. But only one of these boys would be brave enough to stand up and rebel for his freedom.

“Danny, supper is ready,” Frank said as he walked into their room. Frank was older then Danny by three years, the twelve
year old acted like the big brother Danny never had.

“Do I have to eat Frank, it’s just soup and potatoes again,” Danny argued.

“Yes, we have to eat,” Frank motioned for Danny to leave the room. He did as Frank ordered and left the room without any more hesitation.

Frank met Danny at the table, along with the other boys. The table they sat at was long and had enough room to sit fourteen people and was covered with a white table cloth.

Danny looked around the table, everyone was there, at the far end of the table sat Rex, the dark haired, mute boy who always beat Danny up on the playground. Next to Rex was Calvin, he was the smart four eyed boy who helped the others with their homework. Near Frank sat James, another quiet boy, but nicer then Rex, by him was Ira, a boy who looked like an Italian mob boss. And last but not least was Ira’s twin brother Irvine, he looked the complete opposite of his brother, he was skinny, Ira was husky, Irvine had blonde hair, Ira’s was dark.

“Eat up everyone, the soup will get cold fast,” Lucky, the orphanage’s cook began pouring soup into the bowls that were in front of each boy. “Eat before Mr. Geo comes back.”

Mr. Geo was the man who ran the orphanage, the evil man had opened the orphanage’s doors seven years before Danny arrived, and in that time at least ten boys went missing. The evil man would chain the boys up if they did not follow his rules, he would spank them if they didn’t make their beds or clean their rooms. Mr. Geo even refused to give the boys food if they talked back to him.

Lucky quickly filled the last of the bowls and went back to the kitchen. The boys began to eat their meal as fast as possible, no one wanted to be at the table when Mr. Geo got home. Moments later the boys jumped in fear as the main door opened and a tall man walked in. Danny turned to see Mr. Geo standing at the doorway, his heart jumped into his throat.

“Good day boys, how was your meal?” Mr. Geo asked.

“Fine sir,” the boys answered back.

Geo walked to the table and saw Frank’s bowl was still full, Geo stared down at him.

“You didn’t finish Frank?” Geo questioned.

“No sir, I wasn’t hungry,” Frank answered, fearing the worse.

“Boys go to your rooms, I need to have a chat with Frank alone,” all of the boys quickly got up from their seats, except Danny, he slowly got up, he was staring at Frank, wondering what was going to happen to his brother. “Danny I said go to your room!” Danny jumped and took one last look at Frank before running to his room.

Danny leaped into his bed and pulled the covers over his head, he laid their staring at Frank’s bed. He was shivering in fear, Mr. Geo never yelled at Frank which made Danny even more afraid for his brother.

Timed seemed to stop and minutes began feeling like hours, Frank still wasn’t back. Danny became concerned for Frank and he got out of bed and quietly walked to the door only to pause for a moment to hear Mr. Geo screaming.

“You little brat! I gave you a home, I gave you food, and you’re still ungrateful.” Mr. Geo screech. “You will not only go one week without food but you will be sleeping in the basement, do you understand?”

“Yes sir,” Frank cried.

The next thing Danny heard was the sound of the basement door opening and the heavy footsteps of Mr. Geo dragging Frank.  Frank’s cries for help could be heard throughout the building. Danny closed his eyes and prayed that his friend would be safe.

Soon the day began to turn into night and Frank still hadn’t returned to their room. Danny became frightened at the thought of his brother being hurt. He jumped from his bed and walked to his door, he opened it to find an empty hallway.
Danny swiftly walked down the hall and quietly walked down the steps. The room was almost completely dark except for the dim light from the windows and a candle that was burning on the wall.

“Lucky, do not feed the child in the basement,” Danny could hear Mr. Geo from where he was standing.

“But sir he’s only a child,” Lucky argued.

“Do as I say!” Mr. Geo stormed off in the direction of Danny. Danny hid behind the curtain by the window so he wouldn’t get caught by Mr. Geo.

As soon as Geo walked passed him, Danny walked toward the basement door, he knew he would find Frank there. He turned the door knob as quickly as possible and treaded down the steps. The basement was lit by candles that were burning in the lamps on the walls.

The scent of blood was heavy in the air around him. This wasn’t a basement but a dungeon created by a monster. Cages hung from the ceiling, a row of prison like cells were lined up along each side of the wall.

“Frank,” Danny called out, “Frank!”

Danny waited a moment, but there was no answer, he walked over to one of the rows of cells, some had skeletons in them.

“Frank! Where are you?” Danny cried.

Danny stopped in front of a cell at the far end of the basement; he became frozen in fear from the sight that was in front of him.

“F…Frank?” His eyes began to tear up as he tried to open the door. “Frank wake up! Wake up! Please wake up!” When he couldn’t open the door, he ran to get help.

Danny ran up the steps and hurried to find Lucky in his room behind the kitchen. He rushed through the kitchen and found the door to Lucky’s room; he grabbed the handle and tried to open the door but was stopped by a hand on his shoulder.

“Shouldn’t you be in bed little boy?” That voice was so cold and so dark that Danny knew who it was.

“Mr. Geo, I just came down for a drink of water,” Danny replied.

“Get your ass to bed!” Danny began to ran, his heart pounding out of his chest. “And stay out of the basement!”

Danny got to his room a second later: he locked his door and hid under his blankets. He couldn’t sleep now, he had found his brother and his brother was hurt and in a prison cell. Danny had found Frank in the cell in a pool of blood, he was still breathing, but for how long Danny wondered. All Danny could do now is sleep and hope his friend would be alive in the morning.

Danny closed his eyes and drifted off into a nightmare that never seemed to end. He had visions of what could have happened to Frank in the basement, visions of torture and abuse. This was what he feared had happened to him.

The sun did not shine the next morning; gloomy clouds covered the sky as Danny awoke from his slumber. He jumped from his bed and got dressed as quickly as possible then he ran down the steps. It was still early, he was the only one up, and it was a perfect time to check on his friend. Danny treaded to the basement door to find that it had been locked and there was a sign that read “DO NOT ENTER” taped to it.

Danny’s heart sank now; he knew that there was little hope for Frank now that he was locked in the basement. He could hear footsteps behind the basement door and began to run for the stairs, he didn’t want to know if it was Mr. Geo or not.
When he got back to his room, Danny got into his bed and wrapped his blanket around him so no one would see he had changed clothes. He pretended to sleep while a moment later Mr. Geo opened his door to check on him.

“The little brat is sleeping, this is good. He better not tell the others or I will ship him off to the factory,” Mr. Geo whispered with a sinister grin.

“Factory? What does he mean?” Danny thought.

He waited for Mr. Geo to leave before sitting up in bed. The room seemed empty now, especially after Danny looked over at
Frank’s bed. Danny quickly wiped a tear from his eye as he whispered to himself “I promise Frank, I will save you and we will get out of here, alive.”

Danny closed his eyes and fell back asleep; though this time he would only sleep for an hour. James walked into his room and woke him up.

“Hey Danny, it’s breakfast, Mr. Geo’s going to kill us if we aren’t all there,” James told him.  

“Morning already?” Danny asked as he rubbed his eyes.

“Hey Danny why are you in those clothes? Don’t you have pajamas?” James asked.

Danny had forgotten that he had changed his clothes earlier that morning. He had forgotten that Mr. Geo almost caught him trying to get into the basement.

“I was so tired last night I fell asleep in these,” Danny lied.

“Well alright then, we better hurry.” James turned around and went for the door. “Oh and one more thing, did Frank ever make it back here last night?”

“No, I’m afraid he didn’t,” Danny answered.

Neither of the boys said another word, they left the room and went to the dining room. Lucky already had filled the bowls with oatmeal and placed a glass of juice by them. Mr. Geo was sitting at the end of the table, he looked angry.

Everyone took their seats, everyone was there except Frank. A wave of silence fell over the room, the boys waited for Mr. Geo to lecture them.

“Boys,” Mr. Geo began, “I try to do whatever I can for you all. I give you a place to stay, food, toys, and you still disobey me.
Last night I caught one of you sneaking around after lights out.” Danny’s heart went back into his throat. “I know you are most likely concerned for your dear friend Franklin, but let me tell you, he is fine, his punishment will be over in a week and you will see, he will learn his lesson. And as for the rest of you, take what has happened to Franklin as a warning, do as I say or suffer for your actions. Now let’s eat shall we?”

Everyone picked up their spoons and began to eat; Danny almost dropped his spoon out of fear. Danny knew Frank was not fine, he knew his friend needed help, but who could he turn to?

Chapter 2: The Teacher

After breakfast Mr. Geo left for work, and then a young woman, a teacher named Miss Peach, would come to the orphanage and teach the boys. She was a nice woman, who cared for the boys as if they were her own. Danny and the others would meet her in a class room Lucky had made for them on the second floor, it was a big room with more desks then they needed and a chalk board on the wall. Miss Peach had a big desk near the chalk board and a television in the corner of the room.

Danny and the others entered the room to find Miss Peach talking to Lucky at her desk.

“Come on Miss Peach, one date, that’s all I ask,” Lucky told her.

“Oh boys, please take your seats, Lucky we can discuss this after class okay?” Miss Peach asked.

Lucky’s and Miss Peach’s faces wear a bright red. Some of the boys giggled and others just took their seats and sat in silence.

“I see we are missing Frank, is he not feeling well?” Miss Peach asked.

“Frank’s under the weather teach,” Ira answered.

“He’s not feeling well Ira?”

“He’s got the flu,” Irvine added.

“Well then I will just let him rest then.” Miss Peach turned to the chalk board and began writing math problems on it. “Okay, let’s move on to homework then, did all of you do your math homework?”

“Yes Miss Peach,” the class said in an uproar.

Danny sat at his desk in silence, his brother never left his mind at all. Even when Miss Peach asked him a question, he would answer as quickly as he could so he could go back to thinking of a way to save Frank.

“Looks like its noon, you may be dismissed for lunch and recess,” Miss Peach told the class. Everyone got up and went to lunch; Danny was the last to
leave. “Danny is something the matter?”

“No Miss Peach, I’m just not feeling well,” he answered her.

“If you are ill then take the rest of the day off and rest, I will tell Lucky okay?”

“Thank you Miss Peach,” Danny slowly walked out the door to make it seem like he was ill.

Lucky walked passed Danny in the hallway and went into the class room. He had a picnic basket in one hand and a bouquet of flowers in the other. He set the basket on Peach’s desk and hid the flowers behind his back.

“Miss Peach will you join me for lunch?” Lucky asked her.

“Well I can, but aren’t you supposed to feed the boys?” She asked him.

“I made them sacked lunches so they can eat outside now that the sun is out; I figured we could join them.”

Miss Peach followed Lucky outside; some of the boys were on the playground already. James and Rex were sitting under a tree working on their homework from morning classes; James appeared to be doing most of the work. The only children that were missing were Danny and Frank.

“To think it was gloomy this morning,” Peach said.

“That it was,” Lucky pointed to the top of a hill, “Let’s eat over there so we can watch the kids.”

They unfolded the blanket and set it on the ground, Lucky then gave Peach the flowers.

“These are beautiful, thank you Lucky.”

“I figured a pretty woman like you deserved some pretty flowers,” Lucky grinned.

Miss Peach blushed as she opened the picnic basket and removed the meal that Lucky had packed for them. A moment later she paused, there was something troubling her.

“So Lucky where is Frank?” Peach questioned.

“Mr. Geo punished him for something last night, that’s all I can say,” Lucky answered.

“Please tell me more, I must know.”

“This can’t get out to anyone but the basement of the orphanage is rumored to be a dungeon.”

“You’re joking right?” Peach laughed.

“Miss Peach, I am serious. Mr. Geo won’t let me clean the basement for a reason.”

Peach sat in silence; she didn’t know how to respond to that. Her face showed that she was shocked.

“I think we need to tell someone,” Peach told Lucky.

“I’ve tried, child services have been here but Mr. Geo flashed some money and they left.”

“That bastard, oh excuse me,” Peach said as she covered her mouth.

“At least five children have gone “missing” since I’ve been employed here. Mr. Geo is an unstoppable monster Miss Peach. I’m afraid Frank will be the next one to go,” Lucky paused and look at Peach. “I’m sure Danny knows what has happened to his friend, he’s been distant since last night.”

Peach got up from the blanket; she walked away from Lucky without a word. Peach walked past the playground and into the building. Up the stairs to Danny and Frank’s room she went.

“Danny are you in here?” Peach asked as she knocked on the door.

“Yes Miss Peach,” Danny answered.

She opened the door and stepped inside, Danny was laying on his bed, staring at the ceiling. She walked over and sat on his bed alongside him.

“Frank is like a brother to you isn’t he?” She asked him as she placed a hand on his forehead.

“Yes Miss Peach,” Danny answered.

“You know you can just call me Peach if you want.”

“Okay Peach, Frank is a big brother to me and I am worried about him.”

“Do you know where he is?” Peach questioned.

Danny lay there is silence; he didn’t know what to tell Peach.

“You can tell me Danny, I am your teacher. So do you know where Frank is?”
Peach asked again hoping that she reassured Danny this time.

“Yes I saw him.”

“Where?”

“I saw him,” Danny broke into tears, “I saw him in the basement, Mr. Geo hurt him, he was lying in a pool of blood Miss Peach, he wasn’t moving. I was
so scared, I was so scared.”

Peach held Danny in her arms; he began crying more and more. She tried to comfort him while thinking of a way to help him and Frank. Lucky soon appeared in the doorway, he saw Peach and Danny.

“I will help you,” he whispered, “I will help you and the rest of the boys.”
The afternoon classes went by fast and it was soon time for supper. Danny joined the rest of the boys at the table, his eyes burned from crying. Mr. Geo was not home yet, but Danny knew he had to eat his food as quickly as possible. When he was finished he looked around the room and saw Miss Peach walking out of the kitchen with Lucky.

“Well good night boys, I will see you tomorrow,” Peach said as she went for the front door, Lucky followed her and met her there with a kiss.
As Peach was about to open the door, Mr. Geo walked in. She jumped in surprise and the calmed herself down.

“Miss Peach did you stay to tutor some of the boys?” Mr. Geo asked.

“Yes I did,” Peach replied, “Lucky was just showing me out, goodbye.”

“Goodbye,” Lucky and Mr. Geo said at the same time.

Mr. Geo watched as Miss Peach walked out of the building and in to the front yard. Lucky watched as well, hoping Mr. Geo would not catch on to his feelings for Miss Peach.

“Lucky, make sure everyone has eaten their meals. I have some business to attend to,” Mr. Geo told Lucky as soon as Miss Peach was out of sight.

“Yes sir,” Lucky responded before Geo walked away from him.

Geo stormed passed Lucky and went for the basement door; he gave the boys at the table a terrifying look before entering the basement.

“Hey Danny, you think Frank’s in the basement?” It was Irvine; he was staring at Danny from the opposite side of the table.

“I’m not sure, all I know is he didn’t make it back to our room after supper,” Danny lied.

Irvine did not ask him anything else; Ira on the other hand looked like he had a lot on his mind.

“Hey Danny, meet me in my room after lights out okay,” Ira whispered.

Danny answered with a nod and quickly finished his meal before going to his room. When he had gotten to his room, he found that Frank’s bed had red marks on it. Danny’s eyes widened, he knew it had to be blood, but where was
Frank?

He studied the bed and found that the sheet on the bed was different than the one that was on it that morning. He began to pace back and forth from the window to the door, trying to understand what had happened. Then something caught his eye, Danny looked at the bed and then out at the window, he could see a car’s headlights moving toward the orphanage.

Miss Peach hadn’t really left the orphanage’s grounds; she had hidden her car at the very end of the driveway, right where Lucky told her to wait. She drove up to the orphanage, hoping Geo would not see her as she parked on the side of the building. Lucky was there waiting for her, together they were planning on saving Frank and the others.

“Did Geo see me?” Peach asked as she carefully got out of her car.

“No, after you left he went into the basement, I don’t think we have much time,” Lucky answered. “Here, you may need this,” Lucky handed her a pistol.

“I don’t know how to shoot a gun,” Peach replied.

“Don’t worry you probably won’t need to use it anyway.” Lucky motioned to her to follow him. He brought her into the kitchen, Lucky had dirty dishes scattered everywhere. Lucky went to the door that leads to the dining room; he peeked around the corner and saw the room was empty. “Come on Peach,
I got a spare key to the basement.”

“Okay,” Peach said as she quietly and swiftly followed Lucky out of the kitchen. The room was dark; she held his hand so she wouldn’t get lost in the darkness. “Did you hear that?” She paused; they could hear the sound of footsteps moving upstairs.

“I heard some of the boys talking about having a meeting in the twin’s room, don’t worry about it,” Lucky reassured her. Lucky grabbed the key from his pocket and began to unlock the basement door. “It’s opened, come on.”

The two of them walked down the steps, they could smell blood in the air. Peach became frightened as they got closer to the bottom. Once they were off the steps, Lucky found a candle to light on the wall; they weren’t expecting what they saw next.

Skeletons and random bones littered the floor and a row of cells were lined up along each wall. Lucky began to search the ones on the right while Peach took the ones on the left. They quietly searched each cell, whispering Frank’s
name.

“Hey Peach, over here,” Lucky called out.

“Did you find him?” She questioned as she joined him.

“See for yourself,” Lucky was pointing at a body that was on the ground of the cell, it appeared to be a boy. Lucky opened the cell door and went to the boy; he was breathing and covered in blood.

“I had a feeling you two knew,” the voice was chilling; Peach knew right away who it was.

“Mr. Geo please,” Peach begged.

“Enough! “ Geo cried out as he hit Peach in the face, she fell back and landed on Lucky causing him to fall as well.

“Peach, Peach? You okay? Peach!” Lucky began mumbling as he tapped Peach on the shoulder.

“You pick her up and leave the boy. Get out of here or I will kill you all,” Mr. Geo told Lucky.

Lucky carefully picked Peach up and carried her up the steps; little did he know that she had dropped the pistol he gave her. Mr. Geo found it lying on the ground where she fell; he picked it up and aimed it at Lucky.

“Lucky!” Mr. Geo screamed, Lucky turned around. “I think I need to punish you as well,” he gave a twisted grin and shot Lucky in the arm.

Lucky could feel the bullet rip through the sleeve of his shirt; it burned as it grazed across his left arm. The pain sent a shockwave through his entire body causing him to lose balance.

“You bastard!” Lucky screamed as he fell to his knees causing him to almost drop Peach.

“Now go to bed, I expect breakfast to be on time in the morning,” Geo growled.

Chapter 3: The Meeting

The boys could hear voices in the basement as they sat on Irvine and Ira’s beds. They could hear Mr. Geo and Lucky screaming, their screams echoed in the vents in the room. A few moments later they could hear nothing but silence.

“Did Mr. Geo?” James asked.

“He wouldn’t be that cruel, would he?” Calvin answered with another question.

“Maybe we should check it out,” Irvine said.

“No, we need to stay here and work on our plan,” Ira began, “where is Danny?” He questioned.

Danny was also listening to the events in the basement; he was afraid to get out of his bed and met the rest of his friends in the twin’s room. He knew who Mr. Geo was yelling at, he knew it was Lucky and he knew Miss Peach was with him.

When the silence started, Danny found the courage to get out of bed and sneak out of his room. He could see a faint light coming from under the twin’s door; he opened the door and found everyone sitting on the beds. All the boys were there, even Rex was in the room.

“Danny did you here that?” Ira questioned.

Danny nodded and took a seat on Irvine’s bed.

“I saw the dim light from under your door, we need to cover the cracks with blankets, I don’t want Mr. Geo finding out about this,” Danny replied in a fast pace.

“You got a good point, Irvine roll your blanket up and set it at the bottom of the door.” Ira then turned to Danny, “You think Miss Peach and Lucky are okay?”

Danny cleared his throat quickly and paused a moment, the expression on his face was fear and sadness. Ira didn’t ask Danny anymore questions, the boys sat in silence for a moment. They could soon hear the sound of footsteps in the basement and the slamming of the door causing a chill to rush down their spines.

“I hope Mr. Geo doesn’t check on us,” James mumbled.

“If he does, what are you going to do?” Calvin asked.

“Quiet everyone, did you hear that?” Ira questioned.

The sound of footsteps could now be heard on the steps, heavy, angered footsteps. Some of the boys that were on Ira’s bed hid under his blankets while some of the others quietly hid in the closet. Theirs hearts dropped to their stomachs as the footsteps got closer. For a brief second the sound of Mr. Geo’s voice could be heard as he stomped to his room at the very end of the hallway.

“Once he’s gone, we’re going to find Lucky and Miss Peach,” Ira whispered into Danny’s ear.  
A tear began to drip down Danny’s face as an image of his brother in a pool of blood flashed before his eyes. Danny could
hear Mr. Geo opening his door and slamming it behind him, Danny could also hear the sound of someone moving near the kitchen.

Lucky stumbled to his room; he was still holding Miss Peach in his arms even though there was blood pouring down one of them. He set Peach down for a moment while he opened the door to his room. Lucky grabbed Peach and gently placed her on his bed, she was still unconscious but at least she was breathing.

Lucky went to his closet and grabbed an extra blanket and tossed it on top of her. He then swiftly began to walk out to the kitchen. The whole building was very quiet now, Mr. Geo had gone to his room and the boys were hiding in the twin’s room. Lucky was still cautious, he knew that sometimes the silence was the deadliest. He found a small step stool by one of the kitchen cabinets, he quickly picked it up and went back to his room where he placed the step stool by his bed and sat down.
Lucky hovered over Miss Peach until she finally awoke. She was in a daze and looked around the room until her eyes focused on Lucky.

“Lucky?” Her voice was faint.

“Yeah, how are you feeling Peach?” Lucky asked.

“My head hurts,” Peach sat up in the bed and looked at Lucky. She studied him and was shocked to see blood on his left arm. “What happened to your arm?” She panicked and reached for his arm.

“Mr. Geo shot me, but I will be fine,” Lucky reassured her, though he knew he needed medical attention.

Peached laid back down on the bed and looked up at the ceiling and was lost in thought for a moment. “Was that really Frank,
Lucky?” Her voice was weak.

“I would like to say no but I’m sure it was,” Lucky told her.

A wave of silence fell over the two of them, they weren’t speaking but it was obvious they were thinking of Frank and the others. Lucky waited for Miss Peach to fall back to sleep before he went to search for the first aid kit. He was more worried about her then he was about himself.

The kitchen was dark, not even a candle was lit, Lucky felt around the room until he could make out the sink’s features, and he then carefully felt for the cabinet’s door directly under it where he would find a flashlight. He quietly stood up and hit the side of the flashlight to bring it to life.

Lucky studied his surrounding which was now covered in a thin layer of blood from his arm; he eventually found the first aid kit hanging up by the fridge. Lucky opened the kit so quickly and forcefully that the door broke, but Lucky could have cared less. He found inside a roll of bandage wrap and enough cotton balls to cover his wound.

“Lucky what happened?” Lucky turned to see a young boy standing behind him with his face staring at the ground.

“Why are you out of bed boy? Don’t you know Mr. Geo would punish you if he finds you out after lights out?” Lucky questioned.

“Go to the twin’s room, they need your help,” the boy mumbled as he began to disappear.

“What the….?” Lucky gasped as the boy faded away.

Dumbfounded by the image he had just seen, Lucky shook his head and finished wrapping his arm. Something told Lucky that the boy he had seen was someone he knew but he couldn’t tell who it was. Still thinking of what the boy said, Lucky quietly walked up the stairs to the twin’s bedroom.

Ira slowly opened the door to his room, they had waited long enough, and it was now time to find Lucky and Miss Peach. He carefully turned his head to the left and then to the right to make sure it was okay to move out to the hallway. One by one the boys moved out into the hallway, it was almost completely dark except for the few dimly lit candles that were on the walls. In a line, the boys moved swiftly down the hall until they froze at the top of the stairs.

“Did you hear that?” Ira asked Irvine.

“It sounds like footsteps,” Irvine answered.

“Mr. Geo?” Calvin questioned as he shrugged.

As the footsteps got closer, time began to slow and all the boys could hear was the sound of their hearts jumping out of their chests. Slowly a shadow began to creep towards the boys abruptly taking the shape of a man.

Frightened, the boys ran to Ira and Irvine’s room as fast as they could. If the shadow they saw was Mr. Geo they knew they would meet the same fate as Frank. Right after they had closed the door, the door knob began to turn, terrified the boys hid in the closets and under the covers on the bed. The atmosphere in the room was tense and everyone began to feel drips of cold sweat on their faces.

The door creaked open and the boys could hear the sound of footsteps gingerly entering the room. The same shadow they saw in the hallway began to take shape in the doorway. Suddenly the door slammed shut behind it and they could hear someone flip the light switch.

“Boys you can come out now,” a familiar voice whispered.

Danny was the first to come out of his hiding place; he found Lucky standing in the middle of the room with a bandage wrapped around his arm.

Chapter Four: The Escape Attempt

It was too dark to see anything in the dining room; Lucky once again had to feel his surrounding until he found the basement door. Quietly as he could, Lucky opened the door and cautious made his way down the steps.

The basement’s air was cold and the feeling of death lingered and the smell of blood hung in the air like a cloud of smoke from a cigarette. This basement was indeed a dungeon, many people entered but very few left alive.

Lucky felt around for the cells along the walls, he studied each and every one of them until he found the one that was unlocked. He gingerly opened the rusty cage door and lightly stepped foot into it. The floor was concrete and soaked by what appeared to be blood; Lucky knew that this had to be Frank’s cell.

Still blind by the darkness, Lucky began to move his foot softly across the floor until he hit a large mass; he knew then that it had to be Frank.

“I’ll get you help. I promise,” Lucky whispered as he knelt down to pick Frank up. He found he hand and quickly checked for a pulse, luckily there was once, but it was almost faint.

Lucky carefully picked Frank off the ground and began to stand up. He almost slipped from the blood on the group that nearly covered the entire cell floor.

After regaining his balance, Lucky slowly moved in the direction he believed he came from.

His body felt heavy as he moved up the steps, the fear that Mr. Geo would notice what he and the others were doing was never far from his mind. Lucky knew that this may be his only and last chance to save Frank and the other boys from the hell Mr. Geo created for them.

“Lucky did you find him?” It was Peach’s voice calling from the top of the stairs.

“Yes, we need to get him help fast.” Lucky answered as he marched up the rest of the steps. Peach was waiting for him and had the first aid kit in her hand, she gestured to Lucky to place Frank on the dining table.

“Lucky please go find me a flashlight or a candle,” Peach told him.

“You know first aid?” Danny said sheepishly as him and the other boys surrounded the table.

“Enough to help Frank until we get him to a hospital,” Peach answered him.

Lucky returned to Miss Peach with the flashlight had used earlier. He had to hit the side of it to turn it on; he quickly moved the flashlight over Frank’s body.

“Boys please look away,” Peach told them.

Danny turned but found himself looking over his shoulder at Frank. He brother was covered in bruises and a stream of blood was slowly trickling down his face from his mouth. In disgust, Danny turned away from the painful sight.

“Lucky we need to get out of here now,” Peach whispered.

Danny could hear Lucky’s footsteps walking away from the dining room and in the direction of the door. He could see the front door open and Lucky stepping out for a brief second. Lucky left the door opened and told the boys “Okay everyone come over here and go outside.” Danny could tell that Lucky was nervous. Danny could hear some of the boys begin to move towards the door, but he waited. Danny didn’t want to leave Frank’s side no matter what.
Danny watched as Miss Peach carefully picked Frank up, she started to move pass Danny leaving a small patch of blood that dripped from Frank’s mouth onto Danny’s shoulder.

“Danny, come on,” Peach whispered to him.

Without any hesitation, Danny followed Peach to the door; he could smell the grass and the night air from the doorway. There was no wind and the moon was full as they made their way around the building. Lucky lead them to Peach’s car, unfortunately not everyone could might inside.

“Peach, take Frank to the hospital, we will stay here and hide,” Lucky said.

“Are you sure? We can try to fit everyone in the car, I know we can,” Peach protested.

“No we can’t, you and I both know that.”

“Okay, I will be back for the rest of you. Just promise me you will all hide.”

The boys answered with a nod, Peach and Lucky gently set Frank in the back seat. Peach kissed Lucky and got in the driver’s seat of the car. The boys watched as she drove away down the driveway.

“So you got the boy out of the basement?” Mr. Geo’s voice was so cold it sent shivers down Danny’s spine.

“Mr. Geo, I was just taking the boys out for a walk,” Lucky lied.

“Right, I think I have to be more aggressive with my punishments.”

Lucky could see Mr. Geo pulling a pistol from his coat. He knew where he had gotten it from; it was the same gun he used to shoot Lucky with. Once again
Mr. Geo pointed the gun at Lucky but this time Lucky was able to fight back.
Without any hesitation, Lucky ran toward Mr. Geo and grabbed the gun in Mr. Geo’s hand. Lucky struggled to point the gun away from him and the boys, Geo had a tight grip on the gun but that didn’t stop Lucky from taking control.
Danny and the others were so afraid of what could happen that all they could do was stand there and stare. This was the first time that they had seen Lucky and Mr. Geo fight and the first time they had seen Mr. Geo with a gun.

Suddenly, the gun went off and both men stopped and took steps back. Danny studied both Mr. Geo and Lucky; neither had appeared to be shot. Giving a twisted grin, Mr. Geo hit Lucky across the face with the pistol causing him to fall to the ground.

“Get up Lucky! We need you!” Some of the boys began to shout as they watched Mr. Geo begin to take aim on Lucky.

“Quiet you little brats! I should send all you ungrateful little bastards to the factory!” Mr. Geo shouted.

Danny had heard enough, he had enough, of Mr. Geo. Danny began to march over to Mr. Geo, he was so filled with rage that nothing matter anymore. Geo was so angered by what Lucky had done that he didn’t even notice Danny was right next to him.

Danny swung his leg and kicked Mr. Geo so hard he let out a terrifying growl. Geo dropped to the ground, holding his leg tight against his chest and rolling around in the grass. Danny watched as the pistol he had been holding a minute earlier was now laying next to Lucky.

Lucky appeared to be unconscious, he didn’t react to the loud thud the gun made when it hit the ground. Danny’s heart began to sink after he finally took in the situation he was now in. Lucky was motionless on the ground, he had kicked Mr. Geo in the leg and was now starting to get up off the ground, from Danny’s point of view, the situation was very grim.

“You little brat! I should do the same to you as I did to your friend!” Mr. Geo growled.

Danny began to flinch out of fear that Mr. Geo would hit him. What had he done? He should have known better then to anger Mr. Geo.

“Leave the boy alone!” It was Lucky; he had managed to stumble back to his feet and now had the pistol in his hand.

Geo raised his hands and a sinister grin appeared on his face. Mr. Geo wasn’t ready to give up without a fight. Seeing the wickedness in Geo’s face, Danny ran back to the other boys. Everyone huddled together to try to shelter themselves from Mr. Geo’s fury.

“You really do surprise me Lucky. You and that little whore teacher sure have made quite a mess of things for me.” Geo began to rant. “Maybe when I ship you and those little degenerate brats off to the factory I could put you in charge.”

“What factory?” Lucky questioned.

“You’ll find out soon enough.”

As soon as the words left Geo’s mouth, a large truck appeared at the end of the driveway. The truck slowly began to creep its way up to the building and parked only a few feet from where everyone was standing. Ira peered up at the vehicle for a brief second then turned back to his friends.

“You’re not going to believe who is by the truck,” Ira told them.

Curious, Danny and Irvine looked up at the truck to see for themselves. They both had to blink once or twice to make sure their eyes didn’t deceive them. Standing next to the truck stood Miss Peach, her hands tied and a solemn look was on her face.

“Peach!” Lucky screamed.

“Lucky!” Peach replied.

Mr. Geo turned in the direction of the truck and nodded for the driver to bring Peach to him.

“What did you do with the boy?” Geo questioned.

“She managed to get him help boss,” the driver mumbled.

“You damn fool!” Mr. Geo charged at the man and smacked him with his hand.

The man lost his balance, he pushed Miss Peach away and she landed on the ground face first. As Peach lay there, she became oblivious to the world for a brief moment; her breath had been taken out of her from the fall. When she came to her senses, Peach soon could feel warm liquid dripping on her back.
Peach slowly and cautiously got to her feet only to see the driver of the truck motionless on the ground in front of her. Peach studied the man’s body and realized what the liquid that dripped on her back was, blood. The driver had a lone gun shot to his head and his face was drenched in blood.

“Peach! Move!” She could hear Lucky’s voice frantically call to her.

Peach began to run toward Lucky and the boys. She wasn’t sure what was happening or where Mr. Geo was. All she knew was that in the chaos Lucky had shot the driver of the truck.

She could hardly breathe by the time she made it to Lucky. Her heart was pounding out of her chest. Lucky began to struggle with the knots that held the rope around Peach’s wrist.

“Lucky,” Lucky turned to see several pairs of eyes staring up at him. “Where did Mr. Geo go?” Danny asked.

Stunned by what Danny asked, Lucky searched the area Miss Peach just ran from; the driver’s body was there but no Mr. Geo.

“Boys we need to go now,” Lucky whispered.

He gestured for the boys to follow him and Peach towards the truck. Lucky knew it might be their only way out of the area. The boys followed as Lucky lead them to the back of the truck; there was a tarp that covered the bed of the truck and two long pieces of metal that was attached to each side to be used for seating.

One by one, Lucky and Miss Peach carefully lifted each of the boys into the back of the truck, and then Miss Peach herself climbed in the back. Lucky and Peach looked at each other; they knew what they had to do now. Lucky walked away and proceeded to the cab of the truck, he searched for the keys but found none, without hesitation, he went to the driver’s body and found the keys in the front pocket of his shirt.

“Sorry my friend, I’d rather not disturb you,” Lucky whispered before returning to the truck.

He placed the keys in the ignition and the engine roared to life, cautiously,
Lucky began to turn the truck around and leave the orphanage’s grounds.
The boys watched as the building they once called home began to fade away in the distance as the sky began to cloud up and rain began to pour down from the heavens. They were free or so they thought.

Chapter Five: Ole 66 Resting Point

Miss Peach watched the road as Lucky continued to drive further and further away from the orphanage, she knew now all the boys would be safe, she had gotten Frank help and aided in the other’s escape. She knew not of what would happen next but she feared that Mr. Geo was watching their every move.

“Miss Peach,” she looked to see Danny staring at her with dismay in his eyes. “What happened to Frank?”

Peach smile and told him, “I found some nice people to take him to the hospital. When he is all better we will come back for him. I promise.”
Somewhat satisfied by this, Danny turned to Calvin who was sitting next to him. Calvin’s face was also is dismay; the boys had been through a lot the last couple days. Peach wished she could do more for the boys, she knew that getting them away from Mr. Geo was the first step to a better life for everyone.
Lucky drove on into the rain, he began to search for a good resting spot for them. He abruptly spotted a sign that read “Ole 66 Resting Point” with an arrow that pointed to an upcoming road. Lucky pulled off the main road and into the rest area. There he found a rundown old gas station and cafe with a small motel across from it. He parked the truck near the station and jumped down for the truck’s cab and quickly moved toward the bed of the truck.

“We must be stopping here for a bit,” Peach told the boys as Lucky appeared at the back of the truck.

“Come on Peach, let’s get the boys off the truck and get some food, there’s a café in the gas station,” Lucky told them.

“Do you have money for food Lucky?” Peach questioned.

“Don’t worry Peach, I found the truck driver’s wallet in the cab, Mr. Geo and his associates will be paying for our meal,” he said with a chuckle.

Soon Miss Peach and Lucky were helping the boys down from the truck and in a line began marching toward the café. Calvin rubbed his eyes and yawned, he had fallen asleep and Peach had just wakened him up from a peaceful slumber. Calvin studied his surrounding, in the line in front of him stood

Danny and Rex was behind. Behind Rex was Ira and Irvine, he turned back in the direction of Danny to see James in front of the line. Calvin was relieved to see all of his friends had made it out of the orphanage but there was still one boy absent, Frank.

“Miss Peach?” Calvin asked.

“Yes?” He could hear her voice somewhere in the distance.

“Where did you take Frank?”

A little stunned by what Calvin asked, Miss Peach replied, “I will tell you all once we get something to eat.”

Calvin looked over Danny’s shoulder to see that Lucky had opened the door to the café. It was an old building, rundown; the roof looked like it would collapse at any moment and tiny chips of paint covered parts of the floor.

Lucky led the boys to a large table near the back of the café. The chairs appeared to be brand new and still had some of the price tags on them and the table seemed to have been just taken off the truck from the factory.
The boys sat there staring at the walls of the building, looking at each and every knick knack and photo on the walls. The café seemed to be almost completely renovated on the inside and rundown on the outside. The stench of paint hung in the air so heavily that some of the boys couldn’t breathe.

“Well hello there,” a young waitress had appeared out of thin air and was now standing in front of the group. “Welcome to the Ole 66 Café, here are your menus, take your time.” As quickly as she appeared, the waitress vanished.
Danny sat there and carefully searched the menu for something good; his thought soon became swallowed up by the thought of Frank when he saw an item on the menu called “Ball Park Franks.” Without any control, Danny began to cry; worried for his friend, Calvin put his hand on his shoulder and turned to Miss Peach.

“So where is Frank?” Calvin questioned, he hoped this was the last time he’d have to ask.

“Yeah where is he teach?” Ira demanded.

“Well boys you see….” Peach began but was soon cut off by the waitress again.

The waitress was holding a tray in her hands with glasses of water on it. She was a tall girl with dark hair in braids and dark eyes. She gingerly set the tray on the table and began placing the glasses in front of everyone.

“May I take your order?” She asked as she flipped open an order book.

“I want blueberry pancakes,” Rex said.

“Sausage and bacon please,” James added.

“An omelet,” Irvine said.

“I’ll have what he said,” Ira said pointing to his twin.

“Some pancakes and sausage,” Calvin told the waitress, “and my friend here will have some bacon and eggs,” Calvin added as he motioned to Danny.

“We will both have eggs and bacon,” Lucky answered as he ordered for both him and Peach. “And for drinks, bring us some milk.”

“Yes sir I will get right on that,” the waitress said as she walked away.

Desperately wanting answers, the boys turned their attention back to Miss Peach. She studied their faces one by one until she spotted Danny, he had his face down and a river of tears could be seen on his face.

“I left the orphanage with Frank; he was in bad shape as you all know. I sped down the road as fast as I could. Within a couple minutes a police officer pulled me over and when he saw Frank he called for an ambulance.” Peach paused. “The officer tried to arrest me, he thought I was the once who hurt Frank, but I ran away and shortly after a truck stop beside me and offered to give me a ride. The man tried to knock me unconscious but when he wasn’t able to he tied my hands up and drove me to the orphanage.” Peach had fear in her eyes as she spoke; she was still shaken up from the experience.

“How did you know he was taken you to the orphanage Peach?” Lucky asked.

“I didn’t till he started driving up the road. But boys don’t worry Frank is at the hospital, he’s getting help.”

Everyone sat in silence for a moment; they were trying to absorb Peach’s words. The waitress abruptly had appeared with everyone’s drinks, putting on a fake smile, Peach whispered “Thank you.” The waitress smiled back and headed back toward the kitchen.

Without warning, Danny got up from his seat; he looked around the room, searching until he found the restrooms sign. Without a word, he began to move towards the sign, Lucky watched as Danny got closer to the bathroom.

“You think he will be okay?” Peach asked Lucky.

“I hope so Peach, I hope so.” Lucky answered.

Danny looked in the mirror, his eyes were swollen from crying and his face was red. This was hard on him, but the idea of his brother being helped gave him some peace. Danny quickly splashed his face with some cold water and started to open the door when suddenly he overheard the waitress on the phone. It appeared that she had ease dropped on Miss Peach.

“Yes they’re here right now Daddy, yes she’s here too. What? What did they drive in with? There’s a truck parked outside, I think the boys were sitting in the back. What kind of a truck, I don’t know a military looking one.” The girl paused and listened to the person of the phone for a moment. “Don’t worry Daddy I will make sure they stay the night, I will put them in rooms 4 and 5.” She hung up the phone and began to walk pass the bathroom door.

Danny knew he had to hurry back to the others. He had a feeling that the man on the other end of the phone, the waitress’s “Daddy” had to be Mr. Geo. He had to warn Lucky and Miss Peach that they couldn’t spend the night that they had to leave as soon as breakfast was over. Danny rushed back to his seat but he couldn’t warn anyone, the waitress was there with their food.

“And here is the last of your order. Is there anything else I can do for you?” The girl asked as she gave Lucky a sadistic grin.

“Well we may need a to spend the night at the motel,” Lucky replied, this caused Danny’s heart to sink.

“I take care of the guests at the motel; we have two rooms that I think will work for your group.” She answered him. Danny began to sweat; he used all his strength to hold back what he wanted to say.

“Perfect, you can show us to the rooms once we are done here,” Lucky said as he shoveled some bacon into his mouth.

Peach watched as the waitress walked away, she had a gut feeling about the girl.

“Lucky, I don’t think we should stay here.” Peach’s voice was filled with concern.

“Why not?” Lucky questioned.

“She’s Mr. Geo’s daughter,” Danny blurted out.

“What?” Lucky and Peach were stunned.

“When I went to the bathroom I heard her talking to a man on the phone and I think it was Mr. Geo.”

Still stunned, Lucky looked in the direction that the waitress went. He looked at Peach, he was shocked.

“Regardless, we have to stay here. You boys need your rest.” Lucky said then he turned to Miss Peach. “Peach we will split the boys into two groups; I will stay with one group and you the other. We still don’t know for sure that she is his daughter.”

“But Lucky,” Danny began; he had tears dripping down his face again.

“I’m sorry Danny, but I’m not sure where else we can stay.” Lucky looked at the clock hanging on the wall, it was already one in the afternoon and Lucky didn’t feel like driving anymore that day. “We will stay for a couple hours and rest, and then later tonight we will leave.”

Danny sat back in his chair and began to eat his food, tears fell onto his plate. He was filled with fear again; he only hoped that Mr. Geo would not find them and that the waitress really wasn’t Geo’s daughter.

It was almost two by the time they finished their meals and were about to check in to the motel. The waitress from the café had led them to two big rooms on the second floor of the motel. Danny went with Miss Peach, Calvin, and James while Lucky took Rex and the twins with him.

“I will bring you up some beds shortly,” the waitress told them as she ran off.

The room that Miss Peach had was very big, there was a huge king size bed in the middle of the room and a dresser with a TV on top of it facing the bed.
There was a door that led to the bathroom at the back of the room.

“Well boys,” Peach began “sit on the bed for now until the beds come.” Peach said as she walked over to the TV. She started flipping through the channels until she came across some cartoons.

“Wow!” James exclaimed.

“You’ve never seen a cartoon?” Peach questioned.

“No,” Calvin explained, “the only TV we had was in your classroom.”

“If I knew that we could have watched cartoons as part of class.” Peach looked away from the boys, she began to realize that the boys had been treated a lot worse then she thought. “What else weren’t you allowed to do?”

“We….”

Just as Calvin was about to say more, they heard a loud knock at the door. Terrified by who it might be, Peach slowly moved to the door and opened it gingerly.

“Hello,” Peach said.

“Hi I have your beds, will two be enough?” It was the waitress again, she was dragging two fold up cots under her arm.

“Yes that should be fine. Thank you.”

Peach and the boys watched as the woman placed each cot on the floor by the bed. She looked up at the boys and gave them a cold smile.

“If you need anything just come down to the main office,” she said as she walked passed Peach.

“Thanks,” Peach answered as she started closing the door behind the woman. For a brief second, the woman appeared to have a sinister grin upon her face. Peach’s gut began to tell her to grab the boys and leave.
