I was cold and trembling with nothing to hold on to.

When I opened my eyes it was pitch black, pulled by a current that took me somewhere.

I was cold and trembling with nothing to hold on to.

When I opened my eyes it was pitch black, pulled by a current that took me somewhere.
I almost lost breathe, but alas, air, I inhaled... exhaled paralyzed for several minutes before I came to my senses. "Where.... Where am I?" I wondered, the last thing I remember was following Zoe into a well I dug, but there was also an explosion and debris fell over the well, I thought we were done for.

But I guess were alive.

"Zoe?!" I ask only realizing the situation, I forgot all about her for a second.
"ZOE!" I found her motionless just a feet away from where I was. I immediately rushed to her and checked her pulse.


She wasn't breathing.
"ZOE! Wake up!" I carried her in my arms the steps felt heavier every stride. "NO! NO! NOOO! This can't be happening again."

I felt so powerless, it was the same feelings I couldn't express when my wife was put into a death like state, debris feel over her and I couldn't do anything, I couldn't save the woman I loved, and It would be a miracle if she were to live from something like that.
"Zoe! ZOE!"

Still, no tears, no real emotions, just expressions that mean nothing.

I inhaled all I could and breathed it into Zoe's lips.
She coughed water, but still no signs of life, but good enough.

"ZOE! Can you hear me?! I'll get us out of here, so hang in there!"
I immediately scanned the area and noticed a metal fence behind me and just next it is a door leading to somewhere. I rushed to the other side only then realizing the water was fast rising. I kicked the metal fence.

After several attempts it finally fell over.

"YES!" I did a little victory yell, but the situation was far from over.
The door was locked and there was no one on the other side and neither was there a way to break it open like the metal fence. There had to be another way out, we can't die here, Zoe can't die here, not her. I will find a way, and if I cant find one, i'll make one.

"Found you!"
There was a hidden door, there's always one.

"Zoe, just a little longer, I'll get us out of here."
But even with military training and more than enough work out sessions at EDEN my strength wasn't enough to open the door. The water went up to my waist, and I was losing consciousness again. NO!

What happened next was a blur, I remember not being able to open the hidden door, but it didn't feel like I was submerged in water as well. I felt so dizzy, like my head was hit with something really hard. And when my vision returned to normal, we were in a different room. I'm not entirely sure what happened, but I was glad we were safe, grateful even. But I was starting to think that something was not right. There was a bed for one, I picked Zoe up and placed here on top. She was shivering from the cold so I gave her my jacket. Luckily there was wood near by. I was able to make fire. We needed to find a way out of here, and since the hidden door lead to a flooded room, we needed to find another way.

I started digging through the debris with tools placed just next to it, it was as if someone had put it there.
After hours of non stop digging, Zoe finally woke up.

"Where are we?"
"We... I'm not sure, but I'll get us home, don't worry about it." She walked up to me afterwards.

"France... I'm sorry about earlier, I shouldn't have done that..."

I gave her a smile before replying. "I found dry clothes over the crate, I think they'll fit you just right."

Again, like someone placed it there, dry clothes for a female about Zoe's size.

"Really? I'll change then, don't try to peek Baldie."
I did all the digging and asked Zoe to take it easy, she had no idea she almost died, there was no way I was going to make her work even if she fought with me. And finally after about half a day of digging, we found our exit.

"France, take a look... It can't be."
When we went out we saw something that made us lost for words.

"It's a transport device... An underground sub station more likely."
So this was our escape?

"What do we do now?" I ask Zoe.

"Well, given the situation, were not given much of a choice, are we?"

I shrugged.
"I'll go get some gas, fill her up." I tell Zoe.

"Really? Wow, talk about luck huh?" she sighed in relief, after all, this thing ran on gas.

Then again, this place looked abandoned, if there was any sort of luck here, it was something we make on our own, but the way I see things, it was as if someone had set this all up.

Wherever this path leads us, I wouldn't be surprised if more luck appeared.
Hey guys, thanks for reading this chapter and sorry for the long wait (if anyone is waiting at all) If you're reading this story just now, I will suggest starting from the beginning because too much has happened already. BUT! there's a big BUT here, Chapter 7.5 went missing like kaput, so it wouldn't be complete complete either way, I still don't know how that happened, but meh.

Thanks to all the featured CC and comments as always, if you're following this series, I'm eternally grateful.
