The angel experiment

Per: 3

Meet the Flock
Their are six of them. Max, Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gazzy (The Gasman) and Angel. They look human, but they have a thirteen foot wing span of the most beautiful and elegant feathers. Each of them are different. Max the oldest (14) Has pale tan with white streaks and freckly brown spots. Fang is the more mysterious type with his pale skin and crow colored wings to match (14). Iggy is blind and has light brown wings with tan tips (13). Now Nudge is the complete opposite of Fang; meaning it's very rare for her mouth to be shut. She is dark colored with white wing (11). And then there's Gazzy and Angel, the only blood siblings. Gazzy has sandy brown wings and you may not want to be in the same room as him when or after he's eating (8). And the sweet little girl who's name fits her perfectly, Angel. She has little white wings or as Max calls them "chicken wings".
Angels Gone
Angel got capture by the Erasers (Man-wolf creatures). The rest of the Flock tried to save her, but the predators were to strong. Plus they had guns. "Three other Eraser stuffed Angel into a rough sack. She was crying and screaming, and one of them hit her." (pg. 17) She knew she was going to be taken to the Whitecoats (scientist who create mutant children). She herd the roar of a helicopter and the cries and curses of her family. She tried to wriggle free, but soon gave up when the voices disappeared.
Max Gets Shot
Max was trying to save a girl that was surrounded by three guys. (Max, Fang and Nudge were in Arizona on there way to get Angel back). Max tucked her wings in under her wind breaker and walked up to the girl. The boys only sneered and soon (since Max was a mutant was much stronger then a normal human) had them on the ground. One had probably a broken rib or two and coughing up blood, another with a cracked scull, and the last with a broken nose. The girl, who's name is Ella, ran off. The boys got up and because one still has a shotgun Max found herself running too. After a while the boy shot, but hit a tree making splinters go everywhere. Maxes heart was pounding. " In the next second, there was another bang, and almost simultaneously sudden, searing pain in my left shoulder. I gasped and glanced over ti see blood blossoming on my sleeve. That idiot had actually hit me!" (pg. 70) She fell down a slope and soon green surrounded her vision. She realize two thing one she fell in a bush hiding her from the boys and two she just got shot.
Boom
Iggy and Gazzy are trapped in a broken down cabin, Erasers everywhere. Three inside and who knows how many on the outside. The Erasers were sneering at them, their wolf-like snouts pulled back in a snarl. Their eyes hungry for blood and the only way out, is up. Iggy had a homemade bomb made out of a Mickey Mouse clock (and a few other things). So before the savage predators could toy with the bird-kids anymore they spread their wings and out they went, breaking the all ready broken down roof and leaving the detonated bomb behind. "The two boys recoiled from the blast, tumbling backwards in the air from the shock wave. The Gasman righted himself, eyes wide as a fireball ten yards in diameter rose from where the cabin had been." (pg. 112)
That's all they needed to know that this was were first kill.
Testing
The six year old Angel has been forced to to give up her blood for DNA testing, she ate and drank very little and they made her run. "They rang a bell and pushed her forward, and then she had to run as fast as she could to find the exit. Each time, the maze was different, the exit in a different place. If she slowed down, she got an electric shock so strong it scrambled her brain, or red-hot wires under her feet burned her. So eyes blurry with tears, Angel ran forward blindly, taking this turn and that until she finally stumbled out the exit." (pg. 114) They also put monsters in the maze. Soon she got an idea. One of her powers was that she could read minds, so she tried it on one of the whitecoats. The picture that formed in her head was the next maze; she knew exactly where to go and she did it without stopping or hesitation. They were amazed and she knew she finally out smarted them.
Tracker
Max has found out something and that she will have to live with for the rest of her life. And it's not something you want. Since she was shot she needed an X-ray on her shoulder. She got that with the help of a vet (Ella's Mom, Dr. Martinez), her shoulder and wing were fine, but in one of the x-rays you could see a small rectangular shape in the middle of her forearm. Dr. Martinez told her what is was. "'We put something similar into animals. To identify them in case they're lost. Your looks like a, like ones we use on really expensive pets, show dogs and such. They have tracers in them in case they're stolen. They can be tracked, wherever they are.'"(pg.130)That's when things clicked. She now knew how the Erasers where finding them. And she hated it, unfortunately if she tried to take it out, she would have to loose her arm. It was a microchip.
Trapped
The flocks nightmare has come true. The other mutants (except for Iggy and Gazzy) were around them all frightened, all desperate. Metal boxes upon metal boxes were everywhere. Each containing a different mutant in a large dark room, no windows, no way out. "All around me, the smells of cold metal and antiseptic were awakening horrible memories I had buried deep a long time ago. Flashes of light, pain, making me feel a little crazy."(pg. 190) They were locked in cages, they were locked in the school.
Save the World
At that moment you could have sworn Maxes heart just stop. For one she just saw Jeb. And he was alive! (Jeb: whitecoat who saved the flock from the school, acted like a father then disappeared for two years. Flock thought he was dead.) He looked calm and healthy, but Max was out ragged. The second is this. "The thing is, Max,' he said, tons of heart-wringing emotion in his eyes, 'you're even more special than I always told you. You see, you were created for a
reason.
Kept alive for a purpose, a special purpose.'"(pg.197)

Jeb a person she loved and trusted, disappeared without a word and then brought her back to the one place he knew scared her. How was she supposed to believe him, when he said she has to save the world?
We have real parents?
They are in an institution, under ground in the sewers of New York. All of them are excited and nervous. They have found out that they have real parents. All their lives they thought that they were made from test tubes. Nudge found a way to break into the computer (new power). "I saw
our
names, names of hospitals, names of towns- even what looked like names of parents. Then I saw pictures of adults that seemed to go with the names. Were these our parents? They had to be. Oh, God, Oh, God. This was it! This was exactly what we needed!" (pg. 395)They were shocked. The names of their parents, the address and background information was there. They hit print. All of them were there, all of them excepted for Maxes.
Brother?
Max was fighting for her life, literally. Against an Eraser. He is different from the rest. Hes name is Ari, he is a full grown Eraser. (When he was human he was only six. That was a year ago. the flock felt bad for him but he didn't care.) They were wrestling on the ground. They both had a few ribs broken. He was breaking her bit by bit. Luckily in the sewers the ground was covered in slime and he slipped. Max found her opportunity and grabbed his neck. They slammed into the wall and there was a loud crack. She felt it in her hands. Ari was dead. And the worst part was when the flock was escaping. "Just as I swerved after her, almost crashing into a wall because I banked too late, I heard one last, hunting cry. Jeb had changed his tone again - he was screaming at me, and i pictured his red face, red as a stop sign. 'You killed your own
brother!'
" (pg.408)
Oops...
The flock thinks that its alright to buy as much food as they want (they were in a restaurant called Garden Tavern). They had the money, but each person ordered at least two meals and there are six of them so the waiter got the manager. They were arguing, the flock was confused on why the can't by the food and soon the cops (or what they thought was the cops) came. They surrounded the restaurant. The flock snapped there wings open and flew up ford the ceiling. "Angel joined me, then Iggy, the Gasman, Nudge, and Fang. Looking down, I couldn't help laughing at everyone's faces. 'Astonished' doesn't cover it. They were stunned, dumbstruck, completely freaked out." They crashed trough the ceiling, sending glass to rain down the people below. It was funny but, they just made a huge mistake.
I'm Coming Home...
They got the address, the names and the determination. Right now there are in Washington D.C. coasting in the beautiful golden morning ray. The sun light warming their feathers as they stretched them out further to catch a breeze. Iggy though it would be great to find their parents, Nudge was so existed she could hardly sit still and the only thing on Maxes mind was to help her flock.
"Max- you have a bigger mission than finding the flock's parents. Focus on helping the whole world, not just your friends."
"You know, Voice,
I thought finally
, My friends are my world."(pg.422)
Warning
If you dare read this story, you become part of the experiment. I know that sounds a little mysterious-
but it's all I can say right now.
