10. Split Up

A bullet. 'Oh gosh!' I heard Fi sequel. 'Run!' I yelled. And boy did we run. I kept running, no matter how much my lungs hurt. No matter how badly I was rasping for air or coughing or chocking, I kept going. I could tell that Homer was struggling as much as me, but it was like we couldn't stop running even if we wanted to. Lee was fine, I could see him up ahead, and Robyn was way in front. I could see Fi out to my right, coughing and holding her chest as she ran. Our legs moved like a cheaters. I thought for sure we would run out of energy, but no, we kept moving. I took a glance behind me, and knew that that was the worst decision I had ever made. Eight soldiers were firing at us. Bullets were whizzing past us in all directions. And a car was being backed out of the Show Grounds. We reached the road we had been running for and started running full speed along it. It was amazing that I somehow found a boost in my body that made me go faster. Maybe the horror of what I saw or the frightening thought of falling behind had something to do with it. Homer glanced behind him after seeing my reaction. 'The car's coming! Everyone get off the road!' He yelled. We split, Fi and I going to the right, Homer, Lee and Robyn going to the left. 'Run into that backyard, climb the fence and find your way back to Kevin's. We will meet you there!' Homer yelled across to us. Fi and I were frightened. Not only for our safety but for theirs. What if we never saw them again?! But we couldn't allow ourselves to worry about them yet, because at this moment, we needed to focus on just making it out alive. We don't like to use the words out loud, but Fi said it straight forward to me. 'Ellie I'm scared...' 'Fi, it's okay, come on, follow me.' I lead Fi around to the back of whoevers house yard we had just run into. The Smith's I think it was. We ran straight for the back fence. I grabbed onto the edge of the fence and using my boots to try to get grip on the fence I climbed up and lifted my right leg over. I sat and helped Fi up. She swung both legs over and jumped down, landing on both feet. I lifted my left leg over the fence and jumped down, following her through the second yard. We came out the other side on Coachman's lane, a little down past Robyn's house. Then we just ran for it. We didn't know if anyone was following us. But we ran though the paddocks, just in case. Out of nowhere we heard a small humming sound.
