It’s been three hours and neither Raina nor I have spoken.
“How many kids are going to be there?” I ask.
“About thirty-one,” she says, and sighs like that’s been on her chest for awhile.
“Do you know some of their names?” I ask.
“There’s Twilight, Midnight, Morning, Brittney, Nikki, Brandon, Elli, Will, Raven, Rent, Reth, Jake, Jay, Rusty, Eclipse, Fray, Cyril, Dacey, Dax, Judas, Nox, Damon, Phoenix, Landon, Lyle, Silas, Michel, Lacey, Veronica, Katy, and Katharine” she says proudly. God she’s lonely. That was a long list. She’s hiding something I know it I can just feel it.
“I wonder why your still their because your awfully freaked out about something, you’re looking for something or someone or you just scared for the kids themselves right?” I say and cock an eyebrow. I’m just half joking but half of me is looking for information. But I can see she took what I said serious. Crap. Something bad is going on.
“All I can say is don’t look for information that will get you in trouble” She says with unusual calm. Bulls eye, she hit right on the mark.
“Fine. Whatever, don’t tell me” I say.
