Haru and i ended up sleeping in on James couch fro the rest of the day, everyone that came in were shocked when they saw us lifeless on the couch, poor things must have thought we were dead, we were pail from exhaustion and had bags under our eyes, not to mention the occasional grunts of pain. When we finally got up and hobbled our way out of the office i felt even more tired. That elevator felt like centuries standing. When we final reached our department there was a meeting, Akio was now in charge and due to the recent activities we were going on another one of those team building shits holes, i was too tired to deal with this shit. There was a bus waiting outside we were instructed to go home pack our things and get back here by six or the bus is leaving. We got back and as soon as i did i found my ass in the back of the bus in a window seat. I went to sleep ad when i woke up halfway through the trip Haru was dead asleep next to me. The fuck? I looked over to see Akio chatting it up with Daichi he better not give me shit about this.
I elbowed Haru and he woke up. He seemed completely out of it. He yawned rubbed his eyes and turned to me
"Are there yet, wait where is there exactly."
"Beats me i have been asleep as long as you have. Why are you sitting here?"
"Akio took my seat."
I looked over at Akio and he rolled his eyes at me. WTF crawled up his ass and died. I leaned back and looked out the widow we were some where in the woods oh great i love the woods that where the pretty cheerleaders die first, guess Haru is going to go first, you had a good run buddy boy, you had a good run.
"So Julien trouble in paradise."
"Fuck off Haru."
"So i am right."
"Do you want to get to god knows where with your tongue still in your mouth."
"Ok ill shut it ...for now."
We finally reach and its and old cabin, yup we are fucked. They is a really peppy dude waiting for us on the porch with a smile that creeped me the fuck out.
"Hello team my name is Kendle and i am here to help you work together, trust each other, like brothers. We will be spending three days here so get comfortable with each other, i will see you in the morning. We went inside and it was messed up shit. There were no rooms or walls except those building the exterior of the cabin. There were twin size beds for each of us and the were all in a circle. What a night this is going to be, yipee. We looked around the place and there was one bathroom, and there was no fridge nothing with food.Aw crap we are on some nature retreat shit or something. Everyone went strait to bed around eight and relaxed, around ten we heard clicks, everyone woke up to find that all the door and windows were closed REMOTELY. These little company vaca's are getting on m y nerves big time. We tried to pry them open but they wouldnt budge. I found a crow bar under my bed but that didnt help either, everyone started looking under their beds, in their pillows we all found something.This shit cant be real. I found a crow bar Akio found a knife, Haru found rope, Daichi found chains, Hugo found a gag whih he swear wasnt his, and Alec found a key that didnt work in the door.
How the fuck were we going to get out, i put my hand on top of my head and looked up there was a sky light thingy, holy shit we could get out and it has a key.
"JuJu: Guys look up, if we can et out of there we could go look for help or better yet find the bastard with the remote and someone other than me kick his ass."
"Akio: Why not you?"
"JuJu: Im as much as a threat as a marshmallow is to a bunny."
"Akio: True. Ok um thats pretty high so Alec stand next to me we need to hoist the lightest person up with the key to see if we can open that thing then we can use the rope to get everyone else out."
"JuJu: Or we could just take the mattress off the bed and start with that , these beds are high for a reason, we would only need two people. Under the mattress is solid wood."
"Haru: The man makes a point."
"Akio: Ok we will do Juliens plan."
Akio and Alec pushed the mattress off, Alec passed me the key and then i got onto Akio and Alec's shoulder. When i used the key it opened i pushed the glass and it popped out. I would be hard for me trawl out.
"JuJu: Hey could someone pass up the crow bar?"
Haru handed it to me and i pulled myself out. I leaned back down and grabbed the rope.
"JuJu: There is a chimney, im going to tie it to the chimney then you guys can crawl out, ok"
"Haru: Wait pass the crow bar we could tie it to the end so that no one fall off the y can stand in the hook of it."
"JuJu: Ok here."
I gave him it and went down the side of the roof, i tided two knots around the chimney laid my weight on it then tossed it down. When everyone was out with their things Haru tossed me mine. we untie the rope and get off that damn roof, the whole team bonding thing should be over now. As soon as all of us hit eh ground i see that weird smiling dude whose name i didnt are to remember.
"I see you all got out, but one tiny problem, all of you were supposed to share a part in your grand escape. Night night"
What i she talking about he pointed a gun at us and some blue gas came out everything seemed to be spinning and we all started dropping like flies. When we woke up, Daichi, Hugo and Alec were gone, we were in a black room and my arms were tied to two pillars with the rope we found while my legs were held together by the chain and tied to the third pillar in front of me. The gag was in my mouth and both Akio and Haru were still knocked out. Was i going to get crucified by baby Jesus. Lord if this is the way i go i am sorry for hacking into so many computers, i really am, but please make my death quick. I began moving my legs and the chains started to make noise, well might as well its all i got. I heard Haru groan finally he is awake. He rolled over and looked at me his eyes widened and he flew up.
"Haru: Julien why are you tied up."
I nodded my head towards Akio, Haru got the gist and went over to wake Akio. The tried to take the gag off of me but they got shocked. The weird dude appeared behind them and began clapping. Haru and Akio turned around swiftly with their fists balled up.What were the odds us three were trapped in this mess.
"Creepy dude: Well well well, isnt it the three musketeers, you two need to decide who gets this little marshmallow out of here, there an only be one person and i will be choosing who. We have been watching you since your asses landed in those seats, let the best man win, i this room there are hidden compartments with tools that will set them free, its a race against one another, or you could do the other thing. On the back of the gag there is a little switch that sends the electronic shock to the one wearing it so you can take it off but you will hurt your friend. You will choose, the hard way, or have the brains to help you at the cost of him getting mildly electrocuted."
WTF he walked out of the room and and the two dodo's looked at each other, i swear if they electrocute me i am kicking them. Akio turned around and looked at me , i saw it in his eyes, he had better not take the easy way, he has a good head on his shoulders he needs to use it.
"Akio: Julien do you think you can handle it."
I fucking knew it he wants the easy way.I am a tooth pick do i look like i can handle it you fucking fucker.
"Haru: Your not serious right, you have got to be hiding me, use you damn head."
"Akio: Fuck that im not playing to his game we dont even know where Alec, Hugo and Daichi are, they could be dead for all we know."
"Haru: He could be lying about the amount of voltage and if you have forgotten Julien was in a fucking car accident, i dont think what he need s is to get electrocuted."
"Akio: but we need to get out of here ASAP if we do he is one less lever he can pull."
"Haru are yo hearing yourself, he is your boyfriend are you willing to electrocute him,seriously. I mean its a win win for me but its pain for him. Think for a second. You electrocute him he get traumatized never wants to see you again, win number 1 for me, since his mouth would be free he could help win number two for me, not you just me. The downside is that the tools might not help open the locks on the chain so he would have been locked up same way."
LISTEN TO HARU, i wish i could talk right now. Has anyone thought to untie my hands because i could point to where i see a box in the far corner of the huge dark room.
"Akio: Im going to electrocute him."
"Haru: Hold up we could untie his hands then he ca still help us bu pointing to what he sees."
Thank you Haru i swear if he says to electrocute me again i WANT TO BREAK UP!! They untied my hands and i immediately pointed to the box in the corner. Haru went to get it while i gave Akio the death stare, what the fuck is up with him we havnt spoke until this morning, well thats if its still morning. Haru came back with a small knife.I pointed to the band holding the gag, he cut it off and i was free.
"JuJu: Fucking finally. Really Akio you wanted to electricute me you mother fucker. Seriously teh knife was right in teh orner if you hadnt been so set on convincing Haru you would have seen it an di would have been free a long tiem ago, unbelievable."
"Haru: I ll start knocking in the walls maybe there is a hollow space holding something else he is only paint on the so if there is a door or cupboard the paint will be easy to cut through."
"JuJu: Good idea, Akio go hep him please or contribute before you are next to go poof."
They went over and started banging on the walls Akios fist went right through one. When they checked there was a saw, but it was dull as hell. Haru kept banging while Akio got frustrated. His hand went through another space and found a key. Why would they have a key and a saw. Haru trued the key on the the lock of the chain and it worked. We unwrapped the chain around my ankle and the creepy dude appeared out of nowhere again.
"Congrats lets make this one short, now nigh night."
Everything went black, but before i closed my eyes i watched them both faint. When i woke up again Haru was gone, why is Haru gone? This time it was Akio who was tied up. I walked over to him and woke him up. His mouth wasnt gagged like mine he was only tied up with rope, talk about lucky. I began banging around the room and there was nothing the whole place was concrete. FUCKING CONCRETE. I began yelling and Shaking Akio bit he wouldnt wake, i guess ill have to threaten more than his mother board now.
"Akio so help me if you dont wake up u will shave your head bald, burn every cupcake factory to the ground and i will electrocute you until you balls dropped."
That did it he woke up and looked at me shocked i shrugged it off.
"Ok now that you are awake time to figure this shit out."
"I dont want to Julien."
"Dude its the last round it has to be, there are no more of us."
"Whatever im done."
As soon a she gave up the dude appeared. He had a huge grin on his face and a remote in his hands.The lights in the room came on all our co-workers walked out with margaritas in there hand. WHAT IN THE EVER LOVING FUCK. The creepy dude untied Akio and handed us both a margarita.
"Creepy dude: Well congratulations Julien and Haru you both know how to work together and figure out problems."
Everyone started clapping and surrounded Haru and i in a circle, Akio had his hands folded across his chest and looked at me coldly.Fucking bastard he wouldnt dare. I drank the margarita because god knows i needed it dealing with his ass. When we were given our stuff back i checked my phone and turns out we had really been doing this for three days. When i got on the bus and he sat next to me, i felt a head ache coming on, maybe relationships really arent my things,all of them go sour and my heart grows darker. Akio rests his hand on my knee an d look at him, he looks right back at me with those cold eyes.
"Can i help you Dr. Frankenstein?"
"I am sorry i was in such a rush to electrocute you."
"Im sorry that you didnt."
"the look in your eyes when you were ready to do it hurt they sting they are branded into my scull. Did i upset you ,did you think i needed to be punished?"
"I didnt mean to, it just made me angry you and Haru were spending so much tie together."
"Akio we were exhausted for days we didnt talk, eat or sleep, does that sound like a way to spend time together, to me it sounds like torture."
"Like i said im sorry."
HE leaned closer and kissed me on the cheek, my point of view was so tired so dim, it didnt do anything for me. Just made me annoyed and even more tired, i am going to strangle James.When we finally got back to the office everyone marched to his office pissed as hell, that hell wasnt relaxing,it just turned people against each other. When we opened the door unannounced and he turned around looking surprised. The bus dropped us off in the forest and we had to wald six miles. Alec had twigs in his hair still, Akio's glasses were stained with tree sap i told him to wear contacts but what do i know. Haru had dirt on his face from falling when he was being chased bu three squirrels, Daichi was sneezing and his eyes swelled up because of the pollen and Hugo had mud on his pants because he slipped when we were running from raccoon dogs. I on the other hand had my hair muddy filled with leaves and twigs.
"James: Good God Almighty what happened to all of you, didnt you make it out of the cabin."
"JuJu: You fucking bastard when you say team building making us go through this would be my motive for choking you the hell out. The stupid bus kicked us out six miles in the forest."
"James: Well that was the last challenge to work together and survive."
"Daichi: Please no more team builders i might quit the next time there is one, and i think everyone agrees."
"James: Ok Ok you can all go home and actually rest you get the week off since you look like yo have been put through the worst. But um AKIO, Julien and Haru, please stay back."
Everyone was out in a flash excited to go home and take a shower. What does he want now i am so over this weekend.
"James: So lovebirds how did you survive with each other, or is Haru really a better match?"
"Akio: Why is our relationship any of your business? Is it because Julien left you? Is it because you are envious of his happiness?"
"James: No not at all i am just waiting for Julien to come back and realize his mistake, but until then im betting on Haru to make him happier than you. You know Akio the fact is that you are much more jealous than i am, you were ready to electrocute poor Julien who just was in a car crash. You know technically he wouldnt survive the slightest amount of electric shock due to him still healing, Haru thought about that."
"Akio: So what is this your not his father and you dont pick his boyfriends. He does."
"James: I know that im just enjoying the show waiting for my horse to win."
