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.


9. Too late

One Week Later 
It turns out, I broke my ankle. Which sucked, with everything going on I would have to run. But with the huge cast on my foot, there is no way I would be able to do that.
"Katherine, I need you to tell me what's going on." Harry said bluntly to me. I tried dodging his questions, I didn't want to drag him into everything.
"Harry, just trust me. You don't want to know."
"Come on, Ranger and his sister are missing. I might know something."
"Fine, you want to know? Whatever. But it will take a while." I gave in. He had been bugging me for a week to tell him. I didn't know where to start, so I started the day Regina went missing.
"Why didn't you tell me this before?" He asked.
"I didn't want you getting in danger. And you can't tell any of the boys."
"I won't."
"Guys, it's time to get to work." I heard Liam say.
I was supposed to be doing Harry's make up, which I never ended up doing.
"Uh, yeah. Coming." Harry replied. "Tell me more later?"
I nodded, but I wished I hadn't told him. What kind of danger could he be put in now? I didn't want anyone else getting hurt. I sighed and rubbed my temples. trying to cope with the fact that I might have just pretty much killed Harry. If anything happened to him, I would never be able to forgive myself.
"You coming?" Liam asked me, I nodded and followed him out to the recording room. Right before we got in there, I got a text message. Getting out my phone, I saw what was said and started shivering.
From Unknown: 
'Hello sweetie. I need you to tell me where my box is. You will bring it to me if you want your little friend to live through the night.'
From Katherine: 
From Unknown:
'Dead if you don't bring that box.'
I felt the room go cold. Ranger, he was going to kill Ranger.
From Unknown:
'Meet me at the dumpster over by your house, at midnight tonight. Come alone.' 
I started biting my fingernails. 
From Katherine:
'Bring Ranger. And Scout.'
It didn't reply after that. 
I had no idea where that box was. Ranger had had it, so it might be in his apartment. I knew I wouldn't be able to leave work for another couple hours, but I had time to find it. And how did this person know where I lived? 
"Yeah, sorry, I'm coming."
I rummaged through Ranger's box of stuff he kept under his bed. I had to find that box. What would happen to Ranger or Scout if I didn't? I picked up an old looking bag that was quite heavy. Looking inside, I saw a little brown box. My eyes widened with hope when I discovered it, but then dropped as I saw I had been mistaken. 
I hadn't found it. They were going to be killed, I knew it. I had looked everywhere for it. But it was no where to be found. I had lost all hope. Slumping down, I flopped on his bed. Then, feeling a bump in the mattress, I lifted it up and against all the odds, it was there. I smiled and grabbed it. I had gotten seventeen calls from Harry, wondering where I was. I ignored them though, I had to save Ranger, not chitchat about how he wanted to help. I ran down to my car and drove like a mad woman to my apartment. Could I be too late?
