It didn’t take me long to make my way back home as I worked my way through the cover of the area’s thick foliage. We had only been a little over a mile away to begin with, so the threat of being spotted was at a minimum. When June saw me climb back through my bedroom window as she sat at my computer shopping online for girlie things, of course, she was surprised. Her first words being, “Peter, you’re back… What happened?” “I need to borrow your car again,” I told her frown which had that taken over her expression already. “Not until you tell me what happened,” June then demanded, digging in her heels like she’s done ever since we were children. “I want to know what’s going on.” “I don’t have time to explain,” I told…show more content…

It was Samantha and to my surprise she was with Elliot. “Samantha,” I said as I quickly walked up to her. “Elliot, welcome back, I’m glad to see you made it.” “Yeah, I guess it was a close call there for a while,” Elliot admitted pensively as if embarrassed by what had happened to him. “But, I made it through, no harm, no
