No, the scream wasn’t me. Hey, Mika here. It wasn’t me, I didn’t scream. It was Kara. See, without warning, Mom launched us into the sky and straight up. Kara grabbed on for dear life and screamed out of fear. Can’t blame her, it was out of no where… I felt kind of bad for... Read more »

I will say only this: I. Hate. Water. Do I sink like a rock? No. But I hate swimming. I hate being covered in wet clothes with wet hair and being cold all the time. I have my dad’s hair. Do you know how hard it is to get African American hair dry? NOT. EASY. And I have hair down to my waist. Not... Read more »

Myla’s back guys! Sorry for leaving you with Mika for so long… I know that was torture… [No Mika, I wasn't kidding.] So, when Mika left off, we were in the Mall, right? Cool. Still in our uniforms, Cat told us, “Okay. Next step, physicals. We need to see how fit you are, and what... Read more »

Mika here, where did we leave off? Oh yeah… So after introductions were finished, we all just sat around talking about things that weren’t all that important. It almost felt normal… Ya know, if not for the two fully armed teenage girls and the fact that we were sitting in a shooting... Read more »

As Myla told you in the last segment, I was assigned to room with J.P. I couldn’t place where I had known him from, but he looked real familiar. Hm…. Anyway, when I went to the room, I was surprised to see all of my stuff from my room at Grandma’s house set up like how I would. (Myla... Read more »

Mika and I haven’t been the closest of siblings in recent years. But in the few days since the incident at the convenience center, we’ve gotten a lot closer. We were both accepted into the…. whatever it was… We were never told the official name of the group, at least not at this... Read more »

Mika here. I’m back. As my sister has mentioned, we went through some crazy stuff in the last segment. I agree with her; J.P. did not look (or act) trustworthy, but he was our best option at the time. Besides, if he wanted to kill us, he would’ve done it already. — I heard Myla scream... Read more »

Myla’s back! Now, Mika made me sound like a stalker freak about Harley, but, trust me. I did NOT act that way… Much… Where were we? Oh yeah… —- Tense, I tapped out: ‘Where r they going’ He quickly replied, ‘lght swtch hide’ He released my hand, shoved... Read more »

Mika here. At this point, I’m pretty sure you all are pretty invested in our story, am I right? I know I didn’t get a chance to talk last time, so I’m going to be in charge of this segment. She looked at me, “No way.” I nodded, “It was!” She scoffed, “You know, earlier today I wouldn’t... Read more »

Where did I leave off? Oh yeah, the store. Mika wanted to tell this part, but I decided I would handle it. He’s going to take over later… maybe… My heart was in my throat, and I could barely breathe. I could feel Mika tense beside me, and I moved my hand down his arm to grab his hand. I gave him... Read more »
