Lone Survivor : Sadie was created in a lab – an experiment that scientists were supposed to get rid of on her eighteenth birthday. But a fire breaks out and she’s the only survivor. Or is she? Now, she’s tracking other misfits like her before the secret government agency that created her can track them all down for themselves.
“Wiping down my sweaty palms on to my pants, I quickly pad over to the bed and lift myself up. Goose bumps appear over my whole body as I touch the cold sheets. I rub my arms trying to warm up and to keep my mind occupied. No wonder there is only one other person in here; the others are probably frozen to death. The curtain flings open. I immediately scoot up, sitting straight, plastering on a smile.
Dr. Margot is one of the leading scientists here. I still have no idea what the hell I am doing here but nothing good ever comes out of a visit to the science wing.
“Sadie, your eighteenth birthday is in a few days.” She grabs the board from the end of the bed, reading over the notes. The color drains from my face. Oh no, it can’t be. I had completely lost track of time. No one ever comes back once they turn eighteen. They just disappear without a trace. There are so many rumors that went around about what happens to them. Some say they were sent outside the wall to another facility, others say they were terminated.
I believe that once you turn eighteen you are put to sleep. My breath catches, I need to get out of here, now. I look toward the exit trying to figure out how I can leave. Bringing my knees up I wrap my arms around them hugging myself. I don’t want to die.”
