We got in the car and the girl started driving back the way we came.
"I don't understand...." I mumbled staring at the package, "this isn't such a hard task... Why are they having me do it?"
The girl turned to me with her eyes still on the road, "their having you do their 'dirty' work."
"I dot see how this is dirty work..." I responded.
"It may not seem dirty but..." She stopped herself, "but it is ok? And their keeping their slates clean because they can't get caught on camera if they are hiding. Whatever they do..... You will get the blame."
"Great" I mumbled sarcastically.
"And who are you now?" I asked a little to harsh.
She ignored my agitated tone and replied, "Abby, my name is Abby. The leader is my....father" she said quietly.
My mouth dropped open, "I am so sorry" I said with wide eyes.
"it's...it's fine" she shrugged.
"Why are you helping me? And being nice to me?" I asked.
"Because I hate what my dad does" she answered, "he uses people, good people for his own wrong ambitions. He forces them to do his dirty work... Some of the where my friends..." She trailed off.
"Oh my gosh Abby" I said, "if we ever get out of here you can come with us"
Her eyes lit up, "if I help you guys escape will you let me come with you?" She asked.
"Of course" I replied.
She smiled as we pulled up to the building. Ally's dad, the leader walked up to the car as I got out. I mouthed a 'thank you' to Abby. She nodded and hurried into the building. I handed the leader the package.
"You have what you want" I grunted, "now just let us go"
"You thought it would be that easy?" He asked chuckling evilly, "I have more work for you"
I looked at the ground. We really need to get out of here.
He grabbed my arm in an iron grip that would leave a bruise, and dragged me Into the building.
I saw Josh, Steven and Marcus where all strapped to chairs in the metal room.
"Hey guys" I mumbled half heartedly.
"Hey" they whispered back.
The leader strapped me to a chair and left us there to just stare at each other and cry.
Steven fell asleep in his chair while Marcus, josh an I talked.
"We need to get out of here" josh said staring at the floor.
I nodded in agreement but I did not know what to say. My life was spiraling down into a pit of doom and there was nothin I could do. I was falling hard and dragging the ones that I loved with me. I wish they did not have to go through this to.
"Just stay calm and think of a plan" Marcus cooed softly. I admired his ability to keep his cool in situations like this. We really needed him to keep us going.
