We chose the small art room. It had only a few small windows and a store room that had a back exit and no windows at all, it would be good in case we needed to escape quickly. We hid down behind the teacher's desk right as we saw the lights from the patrol car shine through the 5 low windows that stretched across the front of the room, as it passed by. The lights started to fade and the noise of the car began to disappear, indicating that the patrol was gone.
'How often do you think they will come past?' Homer asked no one in particular.
'Every 30 minutes usually. I've been hiding in the bushes, watching them but I needed food. That's the only reason I came out. I didn't even notice you guys out in the bush.' Lee said.
I realised that he probably hadn't had much food for the past 3 weeks! Feeling around in my pack I pulled out a small packet of vita-wheat biscuits and passed them to him. Straight away he tore away the packet and devoured the biscuits in seconds.

'Lee, what exactly have you been doing for the past 3 weeks?' I asked, wondering to myself how he hadn't been captured. We sat back in more of a comfortable position and made sure it was safe, then, with Homer sitting a little higher up, on watch, we listened to Lee's story.
'Well, I guess I should start with the night of attack on the houses. I had caught up with you and Fi, as you know, and then I remember riding along beside you towards Mrs Alexandra's house, like we had all agreed, but when I looked to the left to where you and Fi had been, you were both suddenly gone. So I stopped and looked around trying to get a glimpse of you. But I couldn't see anyone. Everything was quiet. Then there was another explosion from one of the houses, Homers I assume it was, and debris and flames were flying everywhere! I was still close, so I started peddling like mad towards where I thought our meeting place was. Burning hot bits of the house were landing on me, raining down on me like a shower. Unfortunately I must have taken a wrong turn and because I was in such a panic to find you and to not get hit by anything I ended riding right into a patrol that were heading out to check what was going on at the houses up on the hill.' Lee hesitated, cringing. And that's when I noticed the bruises and burns on his arms and legs.
