12. Chapter 11

Shit. He knows. He isn’t dumb, and if he heard what I was saying, he must know. Shit. I ran out of the room and to my computer room. I shut the door and locked it. I felt like going to the café and getting lost in the maze there. But I couldn’t do that, not because I didn’t want to, because I couldn’t get lost. I knew that maze too well. I was pacing up and down the room, thinking about what to do. I heard a quiet knock at the door but I didn’t respond. I went over to my computer and switched it on. When it loaded up I searched up Cass’s number on my tracking system. It locked onto her phone, and I figured out that she was outside the station, but not going home. I then used my computer to send a text message to her. If you want to meet me come to the nearest café to that place and I’ll be there in ten minutes. My mouse wavered over the send button, but in the end I hit it. I got an almost instantaneous reply. Will do. Seeya in 10. Looks like I’m meeting Cass again.


Now I only had two problems. One, how would I get out? Actually, that one was pretty easy to answer once I thought about it. I just had to climb up to the ceiling where it was like the library, then walk along the planks until I got to the end. There should still be a secret panel in the wall, and if I pressed that I could crawl along until I got to the window. After that I could climb down out the window and down the tree. Ok, that problem solved. Problem number two. Should I go as me or as me robot? I could go as me but if my parents came they could get me. However I didn’t want to wear that blinking suit for the robot again, so I decided to be myself. I pressed a concealed button. By concealed I mean behind on of the many computer monitors in the room. It caused a harness to drop down so I could grab onto it. It was like the one at the library, but I just held on. I then tugged it down, which then caused it to shoot upwards. It went all the way up, easily pulling me along with it. I dropped off onto the main plank and quickly gained my balance. Once I was secure I ran along the beam to the wall, where I found the loose brick. I carefully pulled it out then pushed the other bricks to the side. The bricks beside them were hollow and it formed a gap in the wall. I crawled through and put the wall together behind me. I pulled a little torch out of my pocket and headed down the passageway. It was small; I had deliberately made it so as I didn’t want people to follow me if they found this. Most people would feel at least a little claustrophobic in the tunnel, plus some bigger people wouldn’t fit. On top of that the height of it would put of a lot of others. So it was pretty safe. Finally after around two minutes of crawling along at a good speed I made it to the window. I pulled it open and slid through onto the branch of the oak tree that stood proud next to my house. I pushed the window closed behind me and I walked along the branch of the tree. I reached the trunk and slid down it. Literally. I had installed a slide in the middle after spending ages hollowing it out. It was meant for fun but came in useful. I slid down it and when I got to the bottom I ran out from the tree and into my garage. I had a reasonably new motorbike, and I felt like taking it out for a spin. I pulled it out and wheeled it to the road after closing the garage door. I didn’t want them to realise I had gone until I was gone. I scrambled on and started it before darting off towards another café.


In only five minutes I arrived at the café. I assumed that my sister wouldn’t be here yet, so I wandered in and bought a triple chocolate muffin. This café was known for making the best muffins in town, if not in Norfolk. I sat there and ate as I waited for my sister to arrive. She would be 17 by now, so she should be able to drive. Hopefully she would have a car by now as well. A few minutes later she arrived. With the rest of my siblings in tow. So my oldest sister, the twins and Clare. I waved at them when they came in and sat down at my table. “Wait here a minute, I’ll go and get muffins.” I told them. They nodded and Clare and the twins looked happy. I went to the counter and bought five chocolate chip muffins. One for each of us. I walked back to the table and put the muffins down. We all grabbed one and ate in silence. I was happy to see my sisters after so long. I missed Cass the most, and I was the only person who could tell Lottie and Camille well, Cam apart. Even my parents couldn’t tell them apart, especially when they wore the same clothes. Their switching tricks worked on everyone but me. It was funny to watch though. “So how are you all?” I asked, breaking the silence. “I’ve been good, mostly practising driving recently.” Cass told me.

“I thought as much.”

“We’ve been practising archery!” The twins told me excitedly.

“Wow! That sounds cool! How are you doing? Any good at getting bulls eyes?”

“I get more than she does.” They both protested at the same time. The rest of us laughed as they started arguing about who was better.

“I’ve been concentrating on school work. I got a 7C in maths!” Clare, who is 12, told me.

“Well done Clare.” I told her. I was proud of her for that. “Do you guys want to come to my house?” I asked them. I wanted to talk to Cass alone, but I couldn’t do that with the others here. “Yeah!” The twins and Clare chanted.

“Come on then.” I told them smiling. “Cass, you can follow behind in the car with 2 of the kids unless we can get my motorbike in the boot.”

“Actually, I have a truck that it will probably fit onto the back of. Its one of those ones with the big open back and the seats at the front. You know what I mean?” She asked. I think I knew what she meant. So I nodded. I followed her to the truck, and then I got what she meant. I told her to wait there, then and ran to my motorbike and sped over.


Not long after we reached my house. I heard a chorus of wows and cools from the back seats, and when I turned to Cass her mouth was wide open. “Now, that is what I want from a house. Can I like live here with you or something?” She asked, only half joking. I giggled. “You lot are smitten with the outside. I can’t wait until you see the inside!” I walked over to the door and unlocked it. I then held it open for my sisters to walk in.


Chloe, Bethany, Libby, Jake and Skylar where in the kitchen eating when Lorna's sisters burst in. When Jake saw them he jumped up and pointed at them. “I knew it!” He shouted, causing everyone to wonder what he was shouting about. Jake sat back down, mildly embarrassed. Lorna then walked in after her sisters and introduced everyone. It took quite some time. The others had finished off the food Lorna had cooked, but luckily she wasn’t too hungry. After the introductions were finished she told the others to head to the library. As the group headed out Lorna winked at Jake and Skylar, who had already assumed what she was going to do. “Cass and I will meet you up there.” Lorna called after them. She guessed that none of her friends other than Jake knew who her sisters were, which was an upside for Lorna. As long as her sisters didn’t give her away. 


Lorna led me into a room. On the door was a sign saying 'Lelacools computer room' so I assumed that it would be full of computers. I guessed right. The room was filled with computers and monitors. I suppose being around computers they start to rub off on you. Lorna closed the door behind us and made sure that nobody was behind it. "You want to know why I left right?" She asked me. I nodded. "I thought so. The only thing is, you will probably want to leave when you know why I left. But first, can you stand in the centre of the room for a minute please." Lorna instructed me. I went over and stood in the middle, looking at Lorna who was sitting down on a swivel chair. She always loved them. She was doing something on the computer's as I noticed the  screens lighting up. I saw on one screen a full scan of me, and then I realised what she was doing. She was doing two things. One she was adding me to her database, well my scan was being added.  The other was she was scanning me for bugs. By that I mean technological bugs, not the kind that make you I'll. She obviously suspected that our parents tracked me. I didn't think they did but still, I suppose it was better to be safe than sorry.  She did find one on my arm, it was almost invisible.  She took it off and destroyed it. Once that was done she turned to me and started talking.


"First, I am giving you this. It's my own tracker. I can use it to track you. It's up to you whether you out it on or not, but I suggest you do." I told her, giving her a tracker. "Second, I will now tell you why I left. It's why mum and dad have their giant computer industry to themselves. They use their computer skills to their advantage. They hack into rivals computer and find some dirt on them. If there isn't any, they will make some and plant it within their computer. They then either release it as a scandal, selling to the newspapers, anonymously of course, or use it to black mail them somehow. That is how they gathered their fortune and empire." I told her. Cass gasped in shock. "What!" She exclaimed. I nodded as if to prove to her it was true. Actually, I could prove to her that it was true. "One sec and I'll prove it to you." I told her. "How?" She asked.

"I'm going to hack into our parents. Computer."
