It's a Dragon's World
Pt. 12 Infiltration
(Author's note: This chapter won't be told from Titus' point of view. Instead, it will focus more on his friends and everyone else)
Ben and the others made it to the mountains north of the mysterious organization. They hopped off the dragons' backs and sat down.
"So how are we gonna rescuse Titus from THAT place?!" Lucas exclaimed.
"I dunno! Just let me think!" Ben shouted, angerly.
"Ben, don't get mad at Lucas! This isn't his fault!" Sarah said.
"Besides, Titus won't get rescused any quicker if we just sit here, arguing at each other." Angela said, trying to calm everyone down.
"Who cares?!" Jackie asked. "Uncle Titus was just kidnapped! What're we gonna do, dad?"
"Me?" Ben asked.
"You should have an idea on how to rescue your own little brother." Sarah said, trying to remain hopeful.
Ben closed his eyes and scoweled. He got up and walked towards the edge of the mountain to get a view of the organization.
"Ben?" Jessie asked.
"I may have an idea. A place that big should have a lot of guards around, right? So what we're going to do is cause a distraction." Ben started to explain.
"How? Blow something up?" Lucas asked.
"Y'know what? That might be a good idea. Titus' parents and Angela can take care of the guards outside while the rest of us infiltrate the place and rescue Titus." Ben explained.
"Are you guys up for it?" Jessie asked.
"Doulstraz...or Titus as you call him, is our birth child. We can't abandon him." Titus' mom and dad said.
"I've kind of looked at Titus as a child of my own so of course I am. I'll do whatever it takes to save him." Angela said, confidently.
"Us too! We're behind you all the way, Ben!" Jessie exclaimed.
"Jess, I need you and the kids to stay here." Ben said.
"But..." The three said at the same time.
"It's too dangerous. I don't want to put the rest of my family at risk." Ben explained.
"Oh...okay, Ben..." Jessie said, a little unsure if he'd be okay.
"NO! I'm going too!" Jackie exclaimed.
"Yeah! I want to help save Uncle Titus as well!" Kyle finished.
"We should all go, Ben. Besides, we're all here, together because we're all connected to Titus in a way so what happens to him affects us all." Sarah explained.
"Guys... Okay! Then we'll all go together!" Ben said.
Two people got on each dragons' back. As soon as everyone was aboard, the dragons unfurled their wings and the group headed for the organization, hoping to save their dragon friend.
"Angela, let's land down there!" Ben shouted, pointing to some tall rocks. The dragons swooped down and the group hid behind the rocks.
"Ben, what's going on?" Lucas asked.
Ben peaked his head out from behind the rocks.
"Looks like they're increasing secrurity. Dammit!"
"Now what?" Titus' parents asked.
"The plan is still in action. Titus' parents as well as Angela will create a disturbance. This should give us enough time to get into the facility and rescue Titus." Ben explained.
"But a place that big must be gigantic!" Jackie said.
"You're right, sweety. I guess we'll have to split up then. Sarah and Lucas will come with me. Jessie, you take the kids."
"What?! that's far too dangerous, Ben!" Jessie exclaimed.
"You should'nt be worried. After all, you were a karate champion when you were 17, were'nt you?" Ben asked.
"I mean taking the kids into this place! They're far too young!"
"Mom, we wanna come too! We wanna help save Uncle Titus!" The kids shouted.
Jessie sighed. But agreed to let them tag along. With that, the three dragons flew into the sky and soared majestically. Titus' father dove down and unleahsed his fiercesome firey breath. Titus' mother and Angela flew aroung knocking down the wall that was suspended around the organization. The three dragons flew around the organization with the guards running by the destroyed wall. With the guards distracted, the six humans headed into the facility. Inside, it was almost like a giant factory. There were giant vats, which held the blood of the disceased dragons.
The group came to a corridor. There were two routes which leaded either right or left.
"Which one do we take?" Sarah asked.
"I guess this is where we split up." Ben said.
The group went their seperate ways for now. Ben taking Sarah and Lucas with him and Jessie taking Jackie and Kyle with her.
Ben as well as Lucas and Srah ran through the hall which had cells as far as you could see. Most of the cells appeared to be empty. The empty cells must have held the dragons that were previously captured is what the three thought.
Ben, Sarah, and Lucas continued their search for their dear friend. Ben began to get worried about Titus.
"Titus...hang in there. Your big brother's gonna save you." Ben thought to himself.
Meanwhile, Jessie and her kids searched the left corridor. Just like the right corridor, there were old cells which housed previously enslaved bay dragons. Those dragons must have been sold into slavery already.
"This place...is so horrible." Jackie stated.
"Yeah." Jessie replied. "Let's find Titus and get out of here as soon as possible."
Jessie and the kids ran through the hallway, eventually running into one of the guards around the facility.
"Crap! Just what I DON'T need!" Jessie thought to herself.
"What?! INTRUDER!" The guard exclaimed. He grabbed his walkie talkie, about to signal the other guards, however, Jackie kicked it out of his hand. It landed on the ground, in front of both of them.
Jessie stepped on the talkie, destroying it.
"Sorry, but I'm gonna have to borrow your clothes." Jessie said, smiling devilishly.
Before the guard could figure out what had happened, he found himself, sitting in one of the cells. He wore nothing but a pair of boxers when he had come to. He saw Jessie, in his clothes, running past the cell. He got up and tried budging the door handle but it was locked.
Jessie and the kids continued their search. They eventually camt to a cell that contained eight baby dragons. Jessie gasped. She noticed how sad and lonely they looked. She thought that if they were going to rescuse Titus, they should try to rescue the other dragons first.
She got the keys to the cells out and, just as she was about to release the little dragons, she heard her kids' screams.
"Mommy!" The kids screamed.
She turned to see a guard holding her kids. He held a gun to Kyle's head. While he kept a firm grip on Jackie.
"You don't work here. And we don't allow kids in here either." The man said.
Jessie looked at her kids. She could see the fear in their eyes.
"If you don't want your son to die, you'd best follow me." The man said again, with a wicked smile.
He opened a cell door and threw Jackie in. He ordered Kyle to get in as well. The kids tried to run out, but the man held the gun right next to them, threating to shoot them if they tried anything.
"You next. Get your ass in there!" He ordered angerly.
"First, give me the keys you have." He said.
Angela handed the set of keys to the guard and walked onto the cell with her kids. There was nothing she could do now. She had to protect her kids. The guard locked the door and headed towards the way he came.
"The master's gonna know about this!" He exclaimed.
He walked back to the main section of the facility. It seemed as though he'd be getting his boss.
"Ben...I'm sorry." Jessie said to herself.
Meanwhile, Ben, Lucas, and Sarah headed down the hallway, eventually making it to Titus' cell. However, they were stopped by the masked man and woman.
"That's as far as you go." The woman said.
"Hey! Get out of our way!" Ben demanded.
"Now now, Benny. You shouldn't talk to us like that, your parents."
"What? My parents are...missing." Ben said, with a little bit of fear in his voice.
The man and woman removed their radiation helmets.
"No...you can't be...mom and dad. Why are you here?"
"Ben?" Sarah asked.
Many feelings ran through Ben's head. Anger,shock, sadness, even guilt. All these feelings raced through his head. He clutched his head and then lowered it. He appeared as if he were about to lose his mind. His entire body shook with fear and shock at this revelation.
"AAAAAAGGGGGGGGGHHHHH!!!!" Ben screamed. His echoe could be heard throughout the building.
At the next cell down, Titus heard the scream of his brother.
"Ben?" He thought to himself.
"Meanwhile, Angela and the kids heard the voice of a mysterious man.
"Sounds like James and Alysse's son made his way in here. He's probably going out of his mind from the shock. The shock of discovering his parents are his own adopted brother's captors." The man said, somewhat tauntingly.
The man's whole face could not be shown as the upper half was shrowded in the shadows. He had a wicked grin and a very terrifying air about him.
"His adopted brother's captives?" Jessie asked.
"Well I shouldn't say THEY themselves captured Doulstraz but they did have a hand in it."
"ENOUGH! Who are you?" Jessie demanded.
The man moved from the shadows. His eyes were pierceing. Almost like staring into true evil. His grin was still very wicked as well. He had several nosepiercings as well as slick back hair.
"I'm pleased to meet you, young lady." He said. "My name is... Saulstrance."
