2. Chapter Two

       By the time I’d crawled back up through the hatch at the first house, it was pitch black dark and I could see absolutely nothing. I was surprisingly glad to be back at the shack. It scared me not knowing how much longer I could go. I didn't want "them" taking me to their slaughter house.

       I had to feel my way around the house so I could find a place for my tired, worn-out body to rest for the night. Darkness and fatigue. What a great combination. I hated this. But, if I wanted to save my family, then this is what I had to go through to get them back. I finally found the bedroom after minutes of blind searching. I laid down on a couch, careful not to run into anything, and quickly fell asleep.

       After what felt like days of unconciousness, I finally awoke and tons of light was streaming into the room through the cracks in the walls. I immediately jumped up off the couch, realizing that Jackson and his crew probably kept running through the night. He could be anywhere by now. But, I had no time to worry about that. I climbed out of the window, relieved by the fact that my body was fully rested, and started sprinting.

       A few hours had gone by with no sign of Jackson, Charlie, or Bones, until I heard screaming. “Reina!” Oh no. It’s him. It's all three of them. Run, Reina. Don't stop until you're off the continent. I did what my instincts told me to, and ran for it, ran back to the house, ran away from Jackson and his thieving, deceptive crew. But, when I got to the house, I took one glance at it, not stopping to take a full look at it, and realized that I’d be crazy to stop there. He’ll stop here to check for me. He’ll start by looking for me here. I have to keep running. So, I did.

       I ran until I was sick to my stomach and could officially run no farther. I had no choice but to walk, because I couldn’t stop. There’s no way I can stop now. I have to keep going. For Mom, for Matt, for Emily, for everyone. They need me as much as I need them. “Reina!” Charlie was yelling, obviously straining to be as loud as possible. Unfortunately, I hadn't yet gained enough energy to start running again, but I had to try. Jackson isn’t going to give up anytime soon. He isn’t going to give up until he finds me. None of them are.

       More time passed, and I could see the sky was starting to turn purple. It's going to be dark soon. I kept running until I had found another shack just on the outskirts of the forest. It was pretty dark by now. I waited to see if the shack was already being occupied, but, fortunately, to no avail. I crept inside and immediately found a filthy bed. This will have to do for the night. It’s either this or the ground. I looked around for a few minutes, hoping to fing some food or a flashlight or anything else that I could maybe later use.

       After finding absolutely nothing worth my survival, I decided it was time to go to sleep. I'm gonna need all the energy I can get if I want to survive this chase. I jumped onto the bed and crawled underneath the ragged blanket, ready to hop up and run for it if I needed to. Soon, I fell asleep, preparing myself for another day of attempting to survive.
