Welcomed

Shiloh's POV

I glanced around, and held on tight to Claire's hand, feeling uncomfortable.
It was dead silent, and winced. I had a bad feeling about this.
A warm hand slipped around my cold one, and I saw Kale smiling at me.
I hesitantly smiled back.
Jarrett looked eager, and took a step forward.
I hissed warningly, but he took no notice.
"Juliet!," he shouted, his eyes roaming the tents.
That was all it took for everything around us to explode.
"IMPERSONATORS!," a young woman shouted, rolling out of her tent.
People stormed out of their tents, and raced our way, shouting loudly.
I took a step back, and realized they wouldn't hesitate to kill us.
Cindy whimpered. Apparently Claire had come to the same realisation I had, because she picked up Cindy, and ran the other way.
Kale pulled at my hand, and I slowly started retreating, before breaking into a run.
I looked over my shoulder. Kevin was running after us, his face pale.
Jarrett stood his ground, and people tackled him to the ground. The others continued chasing us.
"Jarrett!," I shouted. I turned around, about to go back. Kale grabbed my arm, and dragged me further. "KEEP GOING!," he yelled.
I turned away, and tears sprang into my eyes at my betrayal. I ran.
I saw Claire do the same next to me, still carrying Cindy.
She fell behind, not being able to keep up our speed.
Kevin grabbed her arm, and pulled her along.
I tripped, and something landed on my back. I screeched, and Kale cursed as he fell to the ground next to me.
I heard Claire's and Kevin's panicked yelling as they were caught, and Cindy's soft whimpers.
Someone grabbed my arms, and twisted them around. I groaned in pain.
Kale started shouting at them, and the person twisted my arms tighter.
"Shut up!," a high voice ordered. I blinked. A girl is doing this?
I concentrated, and heard the person yell in suprise as the grass attacked her.
She let go of me for a split second, and I kicked her. I rolled away, only to have another person launch themselves on top of me.
Lightning shot down next to us. "CAREFUL!," I yelled at Kale.
I felt something cool against my skin, and saw frost creeping up. I realized Kevin was trying to free himself.
I asked the grass for help again, and it started growing. The sun beamed down on us, blinding our enemies.
Someone growled, and a punch landed on top of my head.
I blacked out..

"Shiloh. Cm'on. Wake up."
I blinked, trying to fight the dark. "Kale?"
"Can you get up?," he asked.
I ignored him, and blinked as the dark remained. "Where are we?"
"No idea," he murmered.
I tried to stretch, but I realized I couldn't move my hands. I groaned. "My hands are tied."
"So are mine," Kale grumbled.
I twitched. "Why can't I disintegrate stuff like Claire?," I asked grumpily, trying to kick the ropes off of my legs.
Kale chuckled. "Too dangerous. You'd disintegrate everyone when you're angry."
I growled, and started rolling over the floor. "Where are the others?," I panted, wincing as I knocked into something tough.
Why do they only find sharp things in movies?
"Not here," Kale grumbled. I rolled the other way. "Where are you?"
"Five feet to your right," he grumbled. I kept rolling until bumped against him.
"There you are!," I said, pleased at my 'ingenious' technique.
I could see the flash of white as he grinned. I struggled, and managed to sit up.
I pressed my hands against his mouth. "Can you bite it through?"
"I'm not a damned horse!," he protested.
I snarled. "It's either that, or them eventually checking up on us. And that won't bring us any good."
Kale grumbled something else, before starting to nibble at my ropes.

Ten minutes later, I groaned, and rolled away. "This isn't working."
Kale spat the bits of rope out. "Tell me about it."
I heard a huff, and then a rope was pressed against my mouth.
"Kale! I thought we agreed it wasn't working!," I hissed. He chuckled.
"Your teeth might be sharper."
I felt anger rise up in my throat. "Don't you have any other powers?!"
He shrugged, and rolled off of me. "Night vision, super-speed, and the weather. According to Ben, I might have another one."
I groaned. "This might be a good time to develop it."
I glanced around the dark. "Can you see anything sharp on the floor? At all?"
He sighed. "Nothing at all."
I started to roll, until Kale was in my way again. I frowned. "Have you tried rolling out of the tent?"
"No use. They've blocked every side of the tent with boxes. Plastic ones, no edges. They were well prepared."
I groaned again. Kale sighed. "Hold your hands behind mine."
I knew better than to question Kale, and obeyed him. He gripped my ropes tightly. "Now move away from me."
I began to shuffle away, until I heard Kale grunt in pain. "Go on!," he snapped.
I moved further away, and Kale let go of my ropes.
I fell over face first. "Thanks a lot," I grumbled.
"Are they looser? Can you pull your hands out?," he asked.
I stretched the rope, and managed to rip one hand out.
I held my breath as I felt the raw skin, and quickly took the rope off of the other one.
"I'm loose!," I breathed. I quickly bent over Kale to help him.
"Apparently someone made progress!," a high voice chuckled.
I froze, and turned around.
