2. Attempted Escape

Chapter 2:      Attempted Escape

I was woken by the sound of a young girl crying.

"I WANT TO GO HOME!" She wailed, enveloped in her deep night-mare. Glancing up at the old grandfather-clock, I saw that it was half-past two in the morning.

My bag hit the ground and the contents spilled out just as I reached the hidden clearing. I shoved my few belongings back into the bag and sat down to think. By the looks of things I wasn't going to be able to climb over the wall, let alone make a hole.

"Great!" I thought- now I really was in a mess. Before I knew it a single tear rolled down my cheek and splattered onto the pavement and then many more followed. I couldn't believe it! I was crying! What on Earth had gotten into me? I shook my head and pulled myself together. This was no time for childish actions- I had to get out of here. Just as I was about to give up I heard a deep cough coming from the other side of the wall.

"Who is there?!" I called cautiously.......
