"Well, we're going to try a different tactic to bring the information out of you since nothing else seems to work . . . " "Bring it on." "Since the information you possess must be important to our Association, we'll have to lock you up." The smallest muscle twitched in Charmaine's sharp jaw. It was faint, but I noticed it. "So . . . what good will that do?" Charmaine scoffed. "Well, we have different experiments we'll perform while you're here, hopefully getting the information out of you,” Aria paused and chuckled, “at first they will be experiments. If the experiment doesn’t work, then we have another form that we’ll use to get it out of you. By the time that we improve the machine if it didn’t work the first time and if you haven’t said…show more content…
A shower. You mean a shower?" "If that's what you Ultramarine people call it. Harry will escort you to the . . . 'showers'. Your evening meal will be sent to you through that slot." Aria told Charmaine. I watched as Aria and Brian walked through the clear force field. Charmaine approached the force field and placed her hand on it. It blocked her from exiting. She frowned.

How long does it take to-- The door swung open and Charmaine sprinted out. I called out her name and bolted after her. My legs were slightly longer than hers, but this girl could run. Unfortunately for her, she turned into a dead end. I grabbed her arm as she let out a groan in disappointment, "it was worth a shot," she murmured. "And I really did go to the bathroom." "Mhmm," I groaned, becoming mildly annoyed. We quickly approached her chamber and I pushed her inside. The force field reappeared; just like Aria had told me. "Well.
