We asked them why the were doing this and why they wouldn’t trust us after we told the story and they started to leave. They said something that scared me half to death. Some of the buildings can turn into humans.
After about 1 day of watching they finally let us out of the prison. Apparently the buildings could only stay in human form for about 18 hours before they were forced to switch back. The people watching us were a rebel group, one of the many fighting to destroy the buildings and to get their normal lives back, only they would never be normal again.
After a week of proving myself to the leaders, by working hard, asking questions and protecting my friends and my sister, they let me join them, as an equal. Although I was excited to be an important part of the decision making, I was wondering why they were impressed by protecting my sister and friends, or at least the friends I had left.
We voted in a democracy. I made the 9th leader, a few less than I initially thought so there was a majority vote. We also made sure to talk to the rest of the people before we made decisions that would affect them to get their opinion. We in the middle of a vote when we saw someone sprinting for their life.
We looked out into the field and saw someone running from a building turned human. He was shouting for help. We ran out to save him and the building ran away but not before we shot him with our guns. The guns work on buildings but work better when they are in human form.
The runner's name was Zach. He was 14 with blond hair and green eyes. My sister fell for him instantly. Looking back on it, it was the perfect ploy. Pretend to be chased, get to know our strengths and weaknesses and catch the eye of one of our own. Then destroy us from the inside.
