Why do I have to watch her silly cat? I sighed, this was going to be a boring summer. I had just celebrated my birthday a week ago, I turned sixteen, and my Aunt had come to visit. She told me she was going to Europe for several weeks, and I was to watch her "special" cat for her. I got out of my little red Toyota Corolla and walked up to my Aunts cabin style house.

I found my way to the Iron door, that I knew must lead to outside. I put my hand on the cold metal handle and pulled to try to open it.
I heard a high-pitched beep from behind me, which soon followed with a pain in my shoulder. I looked over and saw a dart stuck into my shoulder, and I felt my knees shake. Cold spread through my body as my legs gave out and I fell to the floor. I felt drowsiness overwhelm me, as I passed out.
I woke up and opened my eyes to him holding me. He looked alittle upset, as he stared down at me. I felt a slight tinge of fear. He sighed and said "You shouldn't try to escape. You know even if you get out, you'll just get caught by me later." I gulped and shakily said to him, "I'm going to die anyway, it's at least worth a try to escape. I don't want to
