8. Intruder

The door was blocked by fire. The windows were locked, and we were on the 8th floor of the mansion. Right now would have been a good time to panic. But, being Gallagher Girls, we... still panicked. What else could we do?

A scream outside. Zach's head jerked. "Cammie!" he yelled, opening the door.

We all shouted for him to stop. He was about to be engulfed in flames... well, that's what we thought.

Instead of a raging sea of fire, there was a small, low cluster of flames just next to our door. Zach looked at me. This was a clever technique we had picked up in Buenos Aires a few years back. You see the smoke underneath the door and assume there is a massive fire, and stay inside the room.

Someone wanted us to stay in there. Someone didn't want us to find Cammie.

Bex opened her mouth to speak, but suddenly the sirens stop blaring. We ran into the halls, greeted by swarms of students heading for the Great Hall. Standing at the front, was the headmistress of the school, Rachel Morgan. And beside her stood her daughter.

Cammie.

"Someone broke into the Gallagher Academy," the headmistress announced gravely. "And they tried to take my daughter." I heard my roommates gasp beside me. I studied Cammie carefully. We were about the same height, we had similar hair, the same eye colour. The only startling difference was the fresh scar on her cheek.

A scar that should belong on my face.

The pieces fell together in my mind. Solomon wanted me here. 

I closed my eyes.

They wanted me.
