2. Black Market

Meghan's POV

I slip out of our ally way. "Emily." I whisper. "I'm going to market." "Wait for me." Emily called following me out. "Emily." I whisper. "Your too young." "I'm 15." She said turning to me. "Fine whatever Emily." I sigh. "Lets go before we draw a crowd. She skipped out in front of me. "Emily." I hiss. "We got to act normal." She sighed and fell into step with me. "Are we really going to the market Meghan?" She whispered. "The black market." I whisper back. She giggled. "My first time." "Shhh." I say. "We can't let anyone know. We still got a year before mom and dad meet us." Emily got quiet. I give her a quick hug. "Come on Emily." I said. "We're here." We slip into the abandoned building. "This way." I whisper. We slip up the staircase. "Watch out for the rats." I say. "Which door is it?" Emily asked. "This one." I say stopping in front of the only door with a doormat. "How do we get in?" Emily said peeking in the door. "Not that way." I said pulling her away from the door. "This way." I knock three times on the door and kick it once. The peephole opened. "Password?" "Pumpkin." I whisper. The door opens.  "Hey Meghan." Alex said giving me a hug. "Hey Alex." "Who's this?" Emily asked looking up at Alex. "Emily meet Alex. Alex Emily." I said. "Hey Emily." Alex said giving her a hug. "Hey." Emily said. "Anything good today?" I ask. "I don't know?" He shrugged. "Go and check." "Ok bye Alex." I say waving good bye. "Bye Alex." Emily said following me father into the building. "This is it Emily." I say opening another door. Inside the room was lightly lit. People were spread out all over looking at the items. "This is our table." I said pulling out our latest haul. "Just let me do all the talking and trading."

~Three hours later~

"Bye Mrs. Rendi." I say as she gave me the four bottles of water. "That was our last watch Meghan." Emily said. "That means our trading for today is over." I say putting all our goods in the bag. "Let's go." "Finally." Emily sighed. "I'm ready for tonight." I grin. "Me too." "Bye Alex." We call as we leave. "Bye Meghan Bye Emily." He said waving. "See you in a few days." We slip out of the building. "Shhh." I whisper. "We got to get back to the ally with out being spotted. " Emily nodded as we sneak around the corner. Emily poked me back. "What Emily?" I hiss turning around. She pointed behind us where a curly hair boy and a blond boy were following us. "Thy have been following us for the past block." Emily whispered. "Let's lose them." I whisper. "We can't have people getting suspicious tonight." "Plan 342?" Emily asked. "No." I muttered. "Plan 347." "Great thinking." Emily grinned. "Meet you back at the alley." I whisper. I duck into a backstreet followed by Emily. We rush forward till we reach the split. "See you soon Emily." I say turning right. She nodded and turned left. I risk a look back. The blond one was following me down the backstreet but the curly hair one was missing. I speed up looking for a way out. I turn turn down the last alley and get ready to climb the wire fence. "Crap." I mutter. The wire fence had been replace by a brick wall. I leap up to try and get a grip. I reach up for another hole. "Please wait." An irish accent said from behind. "What do you want." I hiss trying to keep my grip. "What are you running from?" He asked. "Ummm." I reply. I reach up for another handhold. "I wouldn't do that." He called up. "Why not." I call back. The wall crumbled beneath my hand. "No." I cry out as I fall. I close my eyes hoping it out be quick. I felt arms wrap around me. I open my eyes to see a pair of blue eyes staring at me. "Thanks." I mutter blushing. "But I got to go." I slip out of his arms and start to walk away. "Wait." He said grabbing my arm. "What?" I ask. "Why are you and the other girl running around London?" He asked. "None of your business." I snap pulling out of his grip and hurrying away. I slip around the corner and bump into Emily.  I grab her. "We got to go."  "Why?" She said trying to keep up. "That blond guy." I panted. "He caught me." "Meghan." Emily said as we got to the alley way. "Don't let this distract you from tonight." "I-. I won't." I mutter. "Wake me up at 11." "Night." Emily laughed. "Night." I smiled closing my eyes. The last thing I see before I drift off way the blond boy's blue eyes.
