To my surprise, she didn't do anything, just turned around and continued fighting. I understood when I felt Sparky tap my back, sending a shock up my back and making me see black. The shadows hissed and retreated, back into my scar.
I woke up tied to a chair. Boss was standing in front of me. "I've decided that you're too much of a hassle to control. I'm either going to use you for a hostage and kill you later, or kill you now." He pulled a knife out. "And I think I know which one I choose." I struggled against the bonds, and got more of my energy. Somehow he had woven the gem into it. I stopped struggling, hoping in vain I would saved. Or, not really.
There was a drumming on the steel door of the room. Bosse turned around and cursed under his breath. The door broke down, and revealed Guardian, who had apparently been relying on his brute force to kick the door down. "Step. Away. From. Her." he hissed. Boss shook his head. Guardian charged, only to be knocked to the floor with Boss's kick. But Jade Archer had already hid in the back of the room, managing not to be seen. Guardian got up, and attacked again as Shifter transformed into a lion and tried to help. Princess was probably at the school, handling damage control. While Boss was occupied, Jade sliced my bonds. I felt faint. She tucked them into her pocket and picked me up bridal style. She ran out the door, and Boss howled in range as the others followed. I felt the world start to slip away.
"Shh. It's okay, you can sleep. You'll be somewhere safe by the time you wake up."
And I still have to thank her that she was right.
