12. Safe...

We dived into the bush right as the helicopter flew over the top of us. We both scurried down into the earth, hiding ourselves as best as we could. The spot light of the helicopter flew overhead, and continued on to the right of us. Fi lifted her head a little.
'Stay down!' I yelled above the horrendous noise. Leaves danced around us and dust was flying around everywhere. My hair was a tangled mess. Dust was flying into my eyes so I closed them tightly. As if closing my eyes would make everything go away. But of course, things don't work that way. It seemed as though the helicopter hung over us for hours, but it was only a matter of seconds. And suddenly, we heard it lifting up into the air more, and continued on its way, searching for us. The dust settled and I sat up, looking across at Fi. She looked terrible. But probably no worse than what I looked like.
'Let's get to Kevin's.' I said, standing up and stretching a hand out to her.
She gratefully took it, and together we started carefully walking through the bush towards Kevin's house. We could hear the humming of the helicopter in the distance, but we felt safe in the bush. For the time being anyway.

We didn't make it back to Kevin's until 6:30 am. It was so close to light now that we had to be super careful for the last 3 kilometres. But we got there safe. No one was there. Homer, Lee and Robyn hadn't come back yet. And now that we were safe, we could allow ourselves to worry about them.
'We will wait until tomorrow night. If they aren't back by then, we go out and look for them.' I said.
We set up a spot in the sitting room, closed all the windows, and got some rest. We connected a bell to the front and back door, and the yard gate outside, so that whenever one of the doors or gates were opened the bell would ring, that way it would alert us if someone was coming. Then we got some much needed rest. Though my sleep was troubled and full of worry for Homer, Robyn and Lee, I was sleeping none the less.
