Alex slowly regained consciousness. He could see anything and could not move. He figured out he had a blind fold. His hands were tied down on the chair he was sitting on. Other then that he had no idea where he was. Alex was an average 14 year old boy. He went to highschool and this year was his freshman year. He had alot of friends and his life was almost perfect. He pulled himself together and tried to figure out what was happening. The last thing he remembered was that he was in a mall with his friends.

He had to make a phone call at a payphone to let his parents know that he would be alittle late. His friends went into a store and waited for him there. Alex went over to the phone and put the money into it. He then started to dial the numbers when he felt a sharp pain on the back of his neck. A few seconds later everything around him went dark. That was the last thing he could remember. He moved his neck around to see if it was broken. He felt no pain, that was a good sign to him but now he had to figure out what to do. Who knows who has taken him for all he knows a kidnapper that wants money.

He tried not to think too much about the future and what would happen to him and tried to untie himself. He was tied down to the chair and no matter how hard he tried he could not get the rope off his hands. He decided to stop knowing it will just waste his energy. He decided to wait and see what happens. A few minutes later he heard a door open and two sets of footsteps walking in.

They were whispering to each other. Alex could barely make out what they were saying. "How much should we ask for the boys safe return" said one of them. "I dont care, we will kill the kids anyway" said the other. Alex's heart sank lower then it already was. He was going to die if he didn't do anything. He forced himself to stay still and not to show them he was awake. "Understood" said the first guy. The second guy then left the room and closed the door behind him. Alex was now alone in a room with a killer.

He then heard a noise that completely destroyed his hope of escape. The man took out a gun and cocked it. He then heard the man walking infront of him and then silence. Alex figured the man sat down in a chair directly infront of him. Alex's heart was racing thinking her was going to die any second now but the man sitting infront of him gave Alex a sense of hope. Since the man was infront of him he wouldn't notice Alex's hands. He started to try to take off the rope again.

It seemed forever but it was actually only half an hour before Alex managed to untie the rope. He didn't drop it instead he held it and waited for the man to get up before Alex could strike. He was at a big disadvantage right now. The man infront of him could see but Alex was completely blind. He had no idea if there were cameras or even other man in the room. He wished for the best. The man finally stood up to stretch his legs. The man started to walk. Alex could hear the footsteps as the man moved along the room. In a matter of steps the man was at Alex's side. Alex had to time it just right. The man took another step forward and Alex figured he was out of his sight range.

He acted quickly, he stood up and turned around still not able to see. He took the rope and then brought it forward and he could feel the wrote hitting something. He brought it closer to him and he could feel the mans back on his chest and knew he was strangeling him. After a few seconds the man wasn't moving. Alex continued to hold the rope in place just ot make sure he was dead. After another couple of seconds he lowered the man on the ground.

Alex took off his blind fold and looked around. The room was small about 20 feet by 20 feet. The man on the floor had a ski mask covering his face and a combat jacket and camouflage pants. Alex kneeled down and saw the gun. The pistol was a .9mm glock. Alex searched the dead body for more ammo but it had no more. Alex continued to exman the room. It had a small window. Alex quickly took the chair and placed it under the window. He stood up and managed to look outside. It was night time and could not see much. All he could tell was that he was in a forest of some type.

He looked at the door. That was the only way out of this place. He had to be careful. He didn't know if anyone was outside. He didn't take the chance. He looked around the room again. He took the chair and placed it against a corner of the room. He stood up and manged to reach the ceiling. There was a small hold just big enought to place both hands through. He used all his strength and managed to crack them. Soon he broke them off and made a hole he could fit through. He got into the ceiling of the room and looked around. He was crouched down and if he tried to stand up he would hit the top. He walked forward making sure he didn't make any noise.

He came to a hole in the bottom. It was just big enough for him to go through but he didn't. He looked at the bottom and around to make sure nobody was there. He jumped down not making a single noise. He was now in the hallways. There were two broken down elevators on his side and a sign that read Exit infront of him. He walked down the hallway trying not to make any noise. Out of no where a man holding a knife came right infront of him. The man said nothing he just hand an evil smile on his face. He ran forward and tried to stab Alex in the chest. Alex acted quickly. He took a half step to the side just enough to avoide the knife. He then placed his left hand on top of the man's hand and his right hand on the bottom. He then twisted his body to his left and the man lost his balance and quickly fell down the way Alex brought him. The man hit his head on the wall hard knocking him out.

Alex decided to run the rest till he got to the exit. He got to the door. As he kept running he noticed he was in a hotel. It was the first floor so that was good news to him. He decided to take the back entrence just to make sure nobody could see him. He opened the door and kept running forward. He then felt a massive pain in his chest. He didn't know what happened. He then felt something warm trickling down his chest. He placed his hand where the pain was and looked at his hand. It was covered in blood. He was shot. Strange thing was that it no longer hurt. He saw everything around him turn black and white. He felt his legs give up and fall backwards. He hit the ground but didn't feel it. He heard some more gunfire and then everything went dark.

Alex woke up a week later in a hospital. He managed to survive the bullet to the chest. He looked around and saw cards on the table to his left from his friends. He figured out what happened. The gunfire that he had heard after he was shot was a SWAT team. He figured that they had a medic with them and managed to keep him alive intill he got to the hospital. Alex sighed. He was thankful he managed to live.
