Katherine didn't ask for any of this. She works for the boy band One Direction, which she loves, and has a foster sibling, whom she loves. But, what she didn't ask for finding out a dangerous secret. Now, she is constantly being watched, her conversations are being recorded, and she is being hunted. All because of on little piece of a puzzle that she just happened to figure out. According to her hunter, she can't live for another day.


2. The box

"What?! Ranger! What did you do?!" I exclaimed, he had done it this time. "Nothing I swear! I didn't kidnap her, it wasn't me! But... the police think it was me."
"Alright, then what happened to her?"
"I don't know..."
"Ranger, what happened?!" I said through gritted teeth. I was trying to keep calm, but he wasn't helping.
"Well, she said she had to see someone--"
"Well, she didn't say. But she was acting strange, she looked terrified but it was obvious she was trying to hide it. But yeah, she was acting...strange."
"Strange how?!"
He groaned, "Kat, I'm not sure, I already feel bad enough, I can answer your questions later. But the police want to question me. What should I do?"
"Well, if you didn't do it then you have nothing to worry about."
"You know that's not true. It doesn't matter if I did it or not, it just matters that they have a suspect, and that's what they want."
"Please Katherine, I'm alright, but Regina...I need to find her. She might already be dead for all I know. Can you help me find her after school?"
"I have work, but after that I will."
"Okay, thank you. Well, I have to go. I'll meet you at the studio. Bye" Then he hung up. I put my phone back in my boot, I couldn't concentrate on anything. Ranger was being questioned by the police, Regina was missing, and there was a real kidnapper out there somewhere. And it wanted Regina, what if Ranger was next? I shook my head and convinced myself I was just over reacting. I walked back to class, but what I didn't get was why the kidnapper wanted Regina, did she know something? Or was he just some psychopath that was just kidnapping random girls? I sat down on my chair, I looked up at the board. I blinked hard and realized that I wasn't in a math class. I was in a history class. I groaned, got up and walked out. I had been thinking so hard I hadn't even noticed I walked in the wrong class. I slowly trudged
back to my math class. School dragged on forever it seemed like. But finally, it was over. I got into my car and drove to the studio where I would be doing the boy's make up. They were recording a new album, and today they were recording a song called 'Might As Well' I personally loved the song. There were going to be interviewers there and paparazzi, so that's why I was called to do their make up. I drove up and parked, I saw lots of paps already. I squeezed through them to get to the doors, I was ignoring all of the questions they threw at me. I pushed threw them at got to the shiny glass doors. I ran in and shut the door quickly behind me, smashing someone's face. "Sorry!" I yelled, and ran to go look for the boys. I looked in the make up room and found Louis sitting there. "Oh hey Lou, are you first?" I asked, "Yep," he said, popping the 'p'. "How are you?" I said as I got out the make up I would need from the closet. "Good, I am really excited to record the song, this is one of my favorites on the album."
"Yeah? That's cool, I really like it. Did you and the boys write this one?"
"Yes, I think this one is one of our bests."
"I agree, it's really meaningful, a bit of ballad in there too which I like." I said, putting the make up down on the counter in front of the huge mirror. I sat down on the seat across from him, "Alright, look at me now will you?" I said, and he turned his face towards me. I began to apply light make up to his forehead. "Are you still getting bullied at your school? Because I can go beat them up."
"Not really, and thanks but it's okay. Guess what? Ranger's girl--" I was about to tell him that Regina had been kidnapped, but I didn't want to pull him into it. "Uh, girlfriend, Ranger's girlfriend...uh...her name is Regina." Louis chuckled, "Yeah, so I heard." "He he, yeah..." I replied.
I soon was done with his make up, I looked up to see who was next, it was Harry. "Hey Hazza." I said, "That movie last night was awful." I added, he just chuckled and sat down. "So, Ranger told me you had an imaginary boyfriend named Brad." Harry said, I laughed, "he was making fun of me for not having a boyfriend. It's not my fault!" I replied, he laughed. "Hold still for a second..." I said, he did and I finished that part of his make up. 
A few hours later, I was all done all of the boys. It took forever, I was tired and kind of just dragging on. I waited for Ranger to come pick me up. I texted him to see where he was. I looked over at my car, if he picked me up, I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. 'Hey Ranger, I'll just meet you at the police station 'kay?' I texted him, 'Oh, alright, I'll see you then.' I hoped in my car and drove down there, I almost ran over a bird but it flew away just in time. When I got there, I saw Ranger standing outside, I parked and walked over to him. "How'd it go? Are you innocent again?" I asked, "I think so..."
"So, where are we looking first? I need you to tell me everything. When did she leave? Where was she going? Who was she meeting?" 
"Well, she left at around nine, I don't know where she was going. But she did leave a piece of paper on the coach, but I wasn't sure what it meant. It had some weird symbol on it." He pulled it out of his pocket and handed it to me. It was a circle with a line sticking out of it, with another line on top of the firs line. "Do you know what it means?" Ranger asked, I shook my head. "But you better keep it...Wait, I've seen this somewhere before." 
"Really?! Where?!" Ranger said, his eyes widening.
"At that little pawn shop a few blocks away from my school." I replied, staring at the strange shape.
'Well let's go! It's the only clue we have so far." Ranger said. We got in our cars and he followed me to the pawn shop. When we got there, I got out of the car and went to go find Ranger. He had been right behind me, so it didn't take long to find him. "Okay, it was on a little box on one of the shelves." I said as we walked through the doors. It smelled old and rusty, but I walked in and over to a shelve. Ranger followed me, I scanned my eyes for the little box that I had seen a few weeks before. I then spotted it on the top shelve. I couldn't reach it so Ranger grabbed it. On the top, the shape was imprinted. I opened it and looked around inside of it. I saw a little piece of paper that was stuck to the side. It looked old and delicate, so I peeled it off as gently as possible. It ripped a little bit on the top, but I got it off. I opened it and read it. "So it is to the day of death that you no longer underestimate time and beings." I read, it was in cursive, I didn't get it. I gave it to Ranger to look at. He put it in his pocket, I handed him the box and he ended up just buying it. As we walked out the door Ranger said to me, "She might be in more trouble then I thought.
