"dualgears would like you to know... it hurts."
Nobody cares. It hurts so much but no one can hear my screams while I'm locked up here. The readout of my words on my screen are a dull green that no one will read. The wires twitch, I can feel the prisoners within.I scream.
EzI was able to sneak in, hoping I could find my parents killer. Though I stupid tripped and stumbled forward but caught myself before I fell into something. "Wha-" My eyes widen and I bit my tongue.
I switch on the voice interface. Along with the words on the screen, a mechanical voice says my words. "dualgears would like you to know... who are you? dualgears would like you to know... what do you want?"I stare down at her from my painful, wiry throne.
EzI took a deep breath and looked back up at him, "I'm Ez, and I'm trying to find my parents' killer." I reply, relaxing a little.
"dualgears would like you to know... why here?"
Ez"This is the only place I haven't looked so far,... Why are you here?" Since I was going to have a long conversation, I sat down on a crate, facing him.
"dualgears would like you to know...this is my place. i was captured to be a power source."
EzI frowned, "But why? How can anyone be so cruel to do this to you!?!"
"dualgears would like you to know... it is an efficient way of powering the city and imprisoning those the emperor fears."
Ez"That's stupid!!! We have a thing called water! It can be used to generate energy!" She stated
"dualgears would like you to know... water needs heat to become steam. we are an easy source."I let out a halfhearted screech.
EzI stood up and pulled out my dagger, "Well guess what, I'm busting you out of here." I decided, this was cruel... I couldnt stand it.
"Freeing the manager is ill-advised, visitor. Death is certain if the manager is freed.""dualGears would like you to know.... it's true, I'm bound here."
Ez"Is there any way for you to escape?" I looked at him hopefully
"≈ç√˚˙¬ø˙©¬ ˆππ•º¶¥§¶ I'm doomed"
Ez"Why can't you be disconnected from this.." Gestures to wires, "Stuff?"
"dualGears would like you to know... it's a life-support system. i'd never have enough energy on my own."
Ez"Okay then... What if you had a new boost of magic?"
"dualGears would like you to know... maybe I could build something."
Ez"I can help! I have some wizard friends who would gladly help also." I smiled
"dualGears would like you to know... can they conjure things?"
EzI thought got a moment, "Hmm I believe so." I say finally
"dualgears would like you to know... bring them."
Ez"Alright, I'll be back as quick as I can." I smiled and went over to the window I broke into. Quickly I climbed out of it and ran to find my friends.
I nod and look at the floor.
EzSometimes later I come, dripping wet from the stupid rain. "I'm.. Back.." I pant, trying to catch my breath. Gen and Milo walk up behind, perfectly dry, stupid wizards and their fancy spells.
I tell them what I need to conjure.
EzI watched as the twin muster up enough magic to form what he asked, "This good enough?" Gen asked.
I nod and call machines to begin my work.
Ez"What now?" I ask nervously, feeling useless since I can do anything.
"dualgears would like you to know... wait."
EzI Sat down on the same crate and criss cross my legs, "Is dualgears your name?"
"dualgears would like you to know... no."
Ez"Then what is your name? It's kind of awkward not knowing what to call you."
"It's Tove," I say.
Ez"Tove.... I like it, very unique." I smiled
"I like it too." speaking is hard.
Ez"My full name is Ezmeralda."
I nod and keep working.
EzI watched the him and the twins... Do whatever...
"I think 's finished."
EzThe twins stood back, looking slightly drained of their energy but they were still smiling enthusiastically
I attach the thing.
Ez I looked at it confused, "What is it?"
"Remote control system and life support. I guess I'm free!"
EzThe twins high fiver each other, "That's great!" I smiled and gave Tove a small hug
I smile. Let's get out of here."
Ez"With pleasure." I grinned and took his hand. "Freedom!" Gen and Milo cheered and went to the window, using magic to open it more for us to go through without having to squeeze through it.
I smile as we run out.
EzWe all run as far as we could, "What would you like to now, Tova?" I asked him once we have gone far enough.
"It's Tove, but I have no idea."
Ez"Sorry, Tove and what about food? I'm kinda hungry right now" I suggested
"Food sounds cool."
Ez"Food it is then." I smiled, the twins waved bye and said they had to go, then left.
I wave back. "Where to?"
Ez"hmm let's have a Philly cheese steak sandwich." I lead him to one of the random food shacks
My mouth begins to water. "Fooood."
EzI laugh, "Yes yes Tove, food." I paid for our sandwiches and hand him one. "Enjoy."
I take it and start eating. "Fffnkz."
Ez"You're welcome." I smiled, eating my own sandwich.
Ez"When was the last time that you ate?"
Ez"Alright, do you remember how old you are at least?"
