Lions are the king of the jungle, killer whales have the word killer in their name for a reason, and eagles rule all things in the sky. These are all examples of kings in their environment. What would happen if a new species that could go to all environments and kill them all, suddenly appeared. Would that make them a dominant species or not? The species I just described are humans, if we are at the top of the food chain then is there a human at the top of the food chain for humans? Are there multiple or just one?
I would like to think that there are multiple and some nice ones out there, but there's only one that I have met, and that's White Fang. No one knows his real name and he got his nickname because every time he visits the lab he picks one kid to study and doesn't stop for months. One time he watched a kid for a year and that kid died from stab wounds. He swears he didn't do it and doesn't know who did it.
He comes every Wednesday when all the kids have to do some kind of trial all day. Every Wednesday of every month of every year, he comes around to watch us. Every other day of the week no one dares to say his name, we all just try and forget about him but it never works because as soon as we start loosening up a little he's back. This particular Wednesday we were doing an endurance test. We have done this countless times, the test starts with everyone lining up in rows outside in the courtyard and five to ten adults would hit our sides with sticks and we had to stay completely still if we moved they would hit us more. So no crying in pain but, if you did cry they would take away one of the meals they gave us and for every time you yelled. This was particularly bad because we only got two meals a day, breakfast and dinner. After they hit us with sticks they would make us run around this track for as long as we could. The track was 1/4 of a mile, if you didn't run at least a mile that was another meal missing from your plate. Don't even get me started on the last part of this test, They would punch us till we were on the verge of death just to see how long it would take. The worst part of it was that we weren't allowed to fight back, like how when your parents yell at you and you can't yell back because that would get you in more trouble, that was basically what this was except replace the yelling with punching you to death.
This whole test was going the way it always goes, up to the part where White Fang showed up. Whenever he showed up I would try to not stand out, don't be the weakest but don't be the strongest, usually, I don't have to do this but today was one of the days he sets his sights on a new kid. When he showed up we were running a mile, now, I'm usually the fastest one with this but today I tried to stay in the middle of the pack. Staying in the middle is pretty much as easy as walking for me, I had to make this believable though. I started acting like I was getting out of breath at the 3/4 of the mile part, and after a 1 1/2 of a mile, I got off the track acting like I was out of breath once again. I looked over to White Fang and he wasn't looking at me. This was good news until I saw him looking at my friend, Chloe, she was falling behind but she kept running. I don't know why she kept running. I never understood her though, she would always share some of her breakfast with people who got it taken away, I told her over and over that she should keep it for herself but she never listened. I was going to get her attention and tell her to stop running but then one of the adults told me to go line up and get ready for the next part of the test.
I walked over to the area looking back at Chloe and she was still running even though she was so far behind, White Fang was still looking at her. I wanted to yell at her and tell her to stop running and that she was too far behind, but I couldn't, I couldn't yell or scream or cry and it's all because of the adults or the people who torture us all and hold us captive and kill us all for fun. They do all of this with a smile on their face and tell us it will make us stronger in the end even though they haven't given us power. Isn't that what this whole facility and island are for, where are all the documents that say who got sent away from this island alive and with power. I don't think there are any. I wish that more people here would want to fight back but everyone is so scared of the workers and White fang, I am too but at least I want to do something about it.
White Fang was still watching her as she finally decided to quit running when she was a lap behind everyone else. He walked over to her and just stared at her, he didn't talk to her like he would do with anyone, just stared. I knew that meant he had his sights set on her and there was no way out. After like a minute he started to talk, I couldn't make out what he was saying but I saw her stand up and then he just slapped her.
