7. Encounter

The iced leaves crunched beneath my feet as I ran, my heart pounding. I could still hear the gunshots, but they sounded further away. I stopped, leaned against a tree trunk, caught my breath. Maybe they had given up. Maybe it was a scare tactic. But I was most afraid of who they really were.

Another shot sounded. I groaned and picked up the pace. I felt my foot brush against something solid, and I nearly lost my balance. I looked back over my shoulder to examine the trip hazard - perhaps a piece of bark.

But it was a body.

"Mr Solomon?" I cried out to the man running towards me.

"Are you alright? What happened?!" he asked frantically. 

"Did you kill him?" I asked, gesturing to the lifeless agent sprawled on the floor. But he ignored my question.

"You need to get out of here," he said, his eyes locked with mine. 

"But, this is a mission," I stammered.

"No. It's gone wrong. Trust me," he urged.

"We should just call for backup then." I reached for my phone.

"No." He guided my hand away. "You mustn't call anyone. Especially not Zach."

"Zach? Why?" I asked, confused.

"Trust me Charlie." His green eyes burnt into mine, and all I could do was nod.

"Now go!" he insisted.

 Something was really wrong. Mr Solomon was afraid. And so was I. I stayed still, my feet glued to the ground.

"Go," he instructed, and I knew he wouldn't take no for an answer. "And don't trust him."

I spun round to face my teacher. "Trust who?"

But Joe Solomon had already disappeared.
