Silence....that's all I could hear in that tiny room. The smell was overwhelming, probably because of Rico's corpse, I could tell that we were all losing it, I couldn't tell how long Kowalski was going to last anymore.
Private: skipper....I miss Rico...
I looked over at private to try and comfort him, but I could tell between his reared eyes, that he wanted to get out of here, away from it all.
Skipper:I know you do private, we all do....but there's nothing we can do to bring him back
Huh.....it's funny.....I'll never see Rico again...never see his crazy ideas when we go on a mission, never to listen him go on about conversations about weapons and how he's better than any of us....never to see him with his smile...or crack jokes when we sit and eat dinner.
I didn't even realize it, but I began to cry again, deeply this time, and I couldn't control it, Kowalski and private looked at me surprised, maybe because they never seen me cry before.
Suddenly private told me and Kowalski something that made me stop in my tracks.
Private: hey-hey guys look!
Me and Kowalski were surprised to see that private had gotten untied from his ropes!
Skipper: your free! Quick private, get me and Kowalski out of these chairs.
Private had ran over to Kowalski first to get him undone, yes we're gonna get out of here! We're gonna be safe.
Private: almost got your Kowalski....
Just then, our joy went to complete sadness, as blowhole opened the door to see that private was up.
Skipper: PRIVATE, RUN!!!!!
Private looked up and tried to run as far as he could from those two bastards, but the minion grabbed him before he could have a chance to run.
Private:NOO!! PLEASE!! DON'T HURT ME!!!
Blowhole: you disobeyed me, and for that you will be punished, minion go get the bat...
I could see privates frightened face, he was just a boy for goodness sake!!!
Private:what are you going to do to me?!?!
Blowhole had this terrible grin on his face, just like he did before he killed Rico..I could tell he was going to hue private.
Skipper:BLOWHOLE!! YOU MONSTER!! HE A BOY!!! DON'T YOU LAY A FINGER ON HIM!!!
The minion came back with the bat, the same bat he used on Rico..I could tell because of the bloodstains on it.
Blowhole: go tie him up again, this time.. Make it tighter!!!
He drug private over to his chair and tied him up extra tight this time
Blowhole: alright young private... Just so you won't run away again... We're gonna take extra measures so it won't happen again. Alright, beat his legs till I hear cracking!!
The minion then raised the bat at private, all I could hear from him was cries for Mercy, saying he was sorry, and how he'll never do it again, and then he began to beat privates feet over and over again...I'll never forget his shrieks from the pain, and the cracking sounds from his feet...why blowhole, why are you doing this to us.. I kept repeating it in my head...trying to block out privates crying and yelping.
Blowhole: alright, you can stop now..
The minion began to halt immediately when blowhole had told him to stop, and walked away from private.
I couldn't even look at him, his feet were all bloody and beaten up, and I could see his bone sticking out of one of them, I nearly gagged looking at him, his face was completely red from all the crying he has been doing, and he couldn't stop crying, tears kept coming down his cheeks, I could tell he was in serious pain.
Alright minion, before we leave them be for a little bit, go get rope for me..
The minion quickly ran out of the room to go find a rope for blowhole. What was he going to do now, everything he's done to us has been traumatizing enough!
Blowhole: I'm gonna have a little fun with Kowalski before I head out.....
That smile appeared on his face again, that face he's had on since we've gotten here. The minion quickly grabbed the rope and brought it back in for blowhole to use.
Blowhole: alright, go wrap this around Kowalski's neck, and I'll give you the signal to start.
The minion quickly put the rope around Kowalski's neck, and stood right behind him.
Blowhole: skipper, watch as I choke your friend until he breaths his last breath!
Kowalski began to cuss out at blowhole, telling him to stopthis crap and let us go, trying to struggle to get out of his chair, but didn't have enough strength to move because f his arm...Kowalski was gonna be killed and there was nothing I could do, here I am, the leader of my pals, and I can't even get out of a damn rope to save them!!!
Blowhole: now begin!
And with that the minion began to strangle Kowalski.
Kowalski: ACK.....UGH....S...KIPP....ER.... HELP!!!
Kowalski began to shake the chair over and over again, trying to put up a fight, but the minion was too strong. I could tell he was getting weaker and weaker by the minute...I had to do something or he was gonna die!
Skipper: blowhole! I'll make you a deal, just please stop!!
Kowalski was barely moving anymore, I didn't have a lot of time.
Blowhole: oh really? Minion, stop for a second.
The minion stopped pulling, and Kowalski began to breath again.
Blowhole: what is this deal?
Skipper: blowhole, how about you kill me instead of Kowalski, take my life over his..
Skipper: if you take my life, I want you to take these two back to our zoo, and never bother them again..
Blowhole was thinking about what I had said, Kowalski and private were telling me that I was making a stupid decision, but I would rather sacrifice myself to save them then sit here and watch him kill my friends.
This decision depended on all of our lives, I was tired of looking like I was the weak person, not able to save Rico, and about to lose my two other friends, this decision was my final offer and I am hoping he picks me over them, so they can live peaceful lives....
End if chapter 4......
