2. Alive?!

I sighed the biggest sigh of relief and rubbed my chest. I stood up straight, looked to the left and right, making sure that this time, the path was clear. Then I darted across the road and dived into the bushes. Homer lay in the bushes beside me. 'That was close' He murmured. I nodded then gave the signal to Robyn that I was okay. She then, in one swift leap, jumped out onto the road, looked around, then raced into the bushes laying in the leaves beside Homer and I. We all looked up, making sure no one was around, then got into the crouching position and started running along the tree line up towards the school.

The school looked like the only safe place at the moment. As we approached the canteen area on the edge of the school grounds, I noticed a small movement out the corner of my eye. I stopped my body tensing. Homer sensed my tenseness and stopped looking in the direction I had focused my eyes on. He saw the movement as well and put out an arm stopping Robyn from moving. We slowly got down flat on the ground and crawled back into the bushes on the side of the canteen building. We hid under the underbrush and watched as the movement became more noticeable. All 3 of us sat staring at it, waiting for it to come into the moonlight so we could see what it was. But it stayed down behind the benches. I looked at Homer and could see he was straining his eyes to see what it was.

Suddenly whatever it was moved out a tad into the light, giving anyone a clear shot. I could tell it was human. Homer felt into his bag for his gun. I looked at him, shocked, as he raised it and pointed it straight at the person. I looked closer, squinting my eyes to see if my thoughts were correct. Something about the way they stood up a tad looked familiar. I stood up right as Homer was placing his finger on the trigger.
