(Jana's POV) I wake up tied to a chair in a room smelling of mildew and mice droppings. My mind recollects the events of what happened as if what was a movie playing in my head. Meryl took us hostage and betrayed us. She made Pierce kill his own father. Lucas betrayed us. Anyone can betray anyone. The room was hot and stuffy even though it was the beginning of September. My lungs squeeze as I remember that all of this fired off on the Labor Day that Leon and I first kissed.
So this was the new cafeteria? It looked like something out of the weapons division. The old fluorescent lights were gone. The microwave, too. Although I guess they wouldn't bother getting a new one after I blew the last one up. In its entirety, the cafeteria was dark. Moody. Atmospheric. It suited the Council's evil way perfectly.
