In the Virginia countryside, Saturday, May, 2053…

The escape from the Center was only a partial success. The three had been carefully planning it for a long time but bad luck happens. At least, two of them believed it was just bad luck right up to the point when they died. The third knew better; she still died.

It all began just past 3 am. The three ran quietly out from under the trees to the tall wire fence topped with barb wire and high voltage lines. The young man known to his comrades as FS2 was familiar with high voltage. He had made a point of studying lots of things, as they all had, although he liked the technical stuff better. He knew exactly how to throw the coiled wire that he carried so that it would short out that whole section of fence, and it worked just as he had planned. Bright sparks filled the night sky, just like he predicted. The Guardians within the Center would be alerted, perhaps thinking there was an intruder from outside, though that didn't matter. They would be over the fence and speedily on their way before the Guardians either came to investigate or got the electricity in that section of the fence back on.

All three were young and athletic, so they climbed up the fence with the agility of caged monkeys. They weren't unlike those friends from the zoo either - they had felt caged for months. And threatened. At the top the young man known as HJ1 took the wire cutters out of his pocket and snipped through the barb wire and the high voltage lines. The woman, SW1, headed down first, then FS2, and finally HJ1. At the bottom they all clasped hands.
