14. Chapter fourteen: the plan:

Rummy kept looking for Moonshine then she heard her in a room of one of the many young kid’s room. “Ok before we begin let us welcome Gizmo, Nava, News, Navy and Point.” Moonshine said and applause sounded afterwards. Rummy thought that she might want to stay and just listened.

       “Now go ahead, tell us your entire story, it will mean you are officially part of the group.” Moonshine insisted as she looked towards Gizmo and his group. Gizmo stood forward as Rummy looked over the corner and saw as Giz remove some of his shaggy hair aside to reveal many deep cuts on his neck each one was a cut of Fox’s wrath the night before.

The kids and Rummy were amazed to see what the creature inside Fox could and would do.  Nava, Point, News, and Navy just stood there quietly with horrid faces. Rummy guessed that the “Regular” group did know about Fox and knew how much trouble they were in if they were caught.

“Nava, Point, anyone want to add to that?” Moonshine requested and Nava just said, “We all witnessed it.”

“That is all we are going to say” News added. Navy just started to wail up a couple of tears, which is the first time he cried since the announcement of his new name. His true name was long forgotten from the kids’ memories. Point kindly grabbed a small piece of cloth that was on a shelf.  The cloth was a little dirty and dusty but Navy didn’t mind.

“Try to keep it together.” Point whispered as he handed him the cloth. Navy, still trying to keep his reputation intact, calmly and quietly took a spot in a corner in the back of the room. Some kids whispered quietly for a while then Moonshine calmed the room down. “Ok everyone; next we should get to the rest of the usual business, the run through of the plan.” Moonshine said. Rummy stopped looking around the corner and stared out into space still listening to the meeting. “First the kids that are picked to go on the runs get to trap Fox and run to the meeting point. We don’t have one yet so, Nava that will be your job. Point this would be your job also. Giz, try to take it easy, but make some protective weapons for us, something tells me that Fox well have his favorite nine-millimeter pistol with him.” Moonshine said and then she turned to the rest of the group instead of the “regs”.

“The rest of you would be trying to escape from the back end of the building, which will be easy part. The hard part would be to get to the meeting point. Then if we have to we would split from there and hope we survive and make a scene.” Moonshine rallied “If this works we will bring the Fox down” All the kids exploded with cheers and it immediately got quiet and they all left the room.

       Moonshine instantly noticed Rummy as she got out of the crowd. She shoved Rummy into a wall with full force. “Did you do this for Fox? Are you spying to get info to Fox? Right?” she ordered

“Moonshine, I would NEVER betray you.” Rummy said.

“How would I know that you are not lying? She yelled.

“Because I am your friend, look at my eyes you can tell that I am not laying.” Rummy yelled. Moonshine looked into her eyes and noticed that Rummy was telling the truth and set her down.

“I’m…sorry, I thought you would.” Moonshine whispered.  Moonshine looked down and away from Rummy’s eyes. Rummy just calmly smiled and said,

“Hey everyone makes mistakes, we just have to learn from them.” then she slouched next to Moonshine. The girls were silent for a long time then Nava peered around the corner with hopeful eyes.
