Quotes From My Story

Here are some more quotes from my story. I’m currently on 29 pages, which comes to about 52 pages in an actual book.

We followed the officer back to the cell where Sloane was being held. After he was let out my suspicions of his anger level being at an all time high were confirmed. He looked like a bull who was being held captive at a fashion show and every single one of the models was a matador wearing solid red. I felt kinda bad for Skylar, but then again, within the last twenty-four hours Sloane had been indirectly pepper sprayed, pushed into a ditch filled with poison ivy, been embarrassed due to Skylar making a stupid announcement in Walmart, been accused of kidnapping, tased, and placed in jail, I figured whatever Sloane said or did to Skylar, he had it coming.

             …..…………………………………………………………………..

“As if you don’t know,” Skylar said from the passenger seat. “Imagine, kidnapping three teenagers and then claiming not to know who they are! I knew you were mentally unstable, but could never have imagined that you were this far gone.”

            …..…………………………………………………………………..

 “You’re right, legally I can’t kill you, but if you say one more word legality will not be the issue on your mind

            ………………………………………………………………………..

 “Look, you can not wake me up five minutes before five-thirty and expect me to be ready by then, I need at least a half and hour notice,” Skylar said irritably.

“I didn’t wake you up five minutes before, I woke you up twenty minutes before, just like I did with Cassie and Allie,” Sloane replied.

“Well, Mr. 4.0, if you know how to do subtraction you can see that you should have woken me up at least ten minutes before them,” Skylar answered, clearly no too tired to get on Sloane’s nerves.

A Song for Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25

I know lately I’ve been talking about Michael Vey a lot. I also know I’m obsessing over book one, even though the sixth one just came out, but hey, I just started reading the series. Better late than never, right? Lastly, I would like to state that I think this song most closely relates to the time Taylor spent at the academy, rather than the entire book, and it is for this reason that I’m writing a large portion my commentary as if they were Taylor’s thoughts.

Run Wild by For King and Country

Are the walls to lock you in or to keep others away  (Is Hatch trying keep us locked up or is he protecting us? Tara says you get plenty of freedom.)
And if the doors were to be opened would you leave or would you stay  (Hatch says it’s my choice, but is it? Is it better than my old life?)

The comfort of your misery you cherish dearly, you cherish dearly  (Even though Hatch says that living like a normal person was horrid, I miss it. I cherish my “misery” dearly.)
And you haven’t started dreaming ’cause you’re still fast asleep, you’re fast asleep  (Sometimes it seems peaceful and happy)

But don’t you want to
Run wild, live free
Love strong, you and me  (Which way do I want to live free? With Hatch or the way I was used to? Do I need Michael?)

You’re a lion full of power who forgot how to roar  (Hatch says that since I’m older it might be harder to adjust but I still can)
You’re an eagle full of beauty but you can’t seem to soar  (He says we’re eagles, and he wants me to succeed, right?)

Will you return to the garden where you were first made whole  (Do I want to go home?)
Will you turn to the one who can liberate your soul  (Or do I want to stay with Hatch who says he can give me anything?)

Don’t you want to
Run wild, live free
Love strong, you and me  (How do I want my freedom? With Hatch and the group, or at home?)
Run wild, live free
Love strong  (Do I want the freedom to do anything I want, or am I willing to sacrifice a little of it, for all he can offer?)

To every soul locked in a cage
In the prison of your past mistakes  (I’m locked in a cage, but they say I’ve made it. Michael’s POV in Cell 25: Was it a mistake not to listen to Hatch?)
No, there’s no time left to waste
Yeah, you can make your great escape  (We’ll escape, we have to try)
We’re made to run wild, run wild, run wild
We’re made to run wild, run wild, run wild  (I know I want full freedom now)

Run forest, all depends what direction  (They need to run for cover)
Some people run from fear, some from their own reflection (I know it’s random, but, Zeus running from water, he sees his reflection in the water)
Some people run their mouth, some people run their house  (Hatch will say anything to convince us to follow him)
Ruling with the heart of a tyrant  (But his heart isn’t what it seems)
Some people run their block, bust shots with a 4-4-5 and
That’s the environment, how we were raised  (The Glows who came in younger were easier to convince and much more loyal, they were raised that way. Nichelle gets dumped where she came from)
Living like lions but trapped in a cage  (Hatch tells they will be powerful, they are powerful, but they live in the cage he created for them)
Back to a imago day with the blood of a king and the heart of a slave  (He tells them they have are the best, but he treats them like slaves until he has their minds)
Don’t you wanna run  (Michael telling Zeus to run with them)

And if your soul’s locked in a cage
You can make your great escape
We’re made to run wild, live free
Love strong, you and me  (Zeus was controlled by Hatch, Michael tells him he can run free now, he does. Taylor, was almost overtaken, so was Michael, but Hatch didn’t succeed, they’re free. Letting the prisoner’s go)

Quotes from my New Story

I know I haven’t updated in a while, but despite the fact that I have wasted some time, I have also begun something very worthwhile. A new story. That’s right I started a whole new story all on my own. I’m twenty-five pages in, and at the moment it is a teen humor adventure. Here are a couple quotes:

“I just discovered that Sloane does not appreciate my sarcasm. Like really, in fact, I think he might hate it more than Dunkin Doughnuts hates Krispy Kreme.”

“Oh, sorry,” Skylar said, sounding almost sincere “I just was testing to see how well pepper spray works. You know you can’t trust everything you read on the internet.”

“Y’know, that sounds like the kinda joke someone would make, who is too stupid to understand my vocabulary.”

“Seriously, is that the best threat you can come up with? You and I both know that legally you can’t kill me, which gives your threat the scare factor of a Barbie movie.”

Also, if you want to see what my characters look like click here. Hint: The blonde guy is Skylar, my sarcastic teen rebel, the green haired girl is Allie (for now), who is my hacker girl, the brown haired girl is Cassie, is my innocent sweet character, and lastly, the brown haired guy is Sloane, who is my time freak, FBI dude.
