12. The police

                                                                                                    I hear sirens...

  I had fallen asleep, holding Echo. I hear the door bell and grip Echo. Willow runs in. "We have to go." I pick up Echo and don't let her get a chance to wake up. "W-what?" We keep running till we're down in the basement. Willow presses a stone in the wall. A slice of wall opens. Willow takes us inside and pulls the door closed. Echo opens her eyes. "What the hell?" I hold her. Willow presses a few buttons and breaths a sigh. "We'll have to stay down here for a while." Echo shakes her head. "Won't you be arrested?" Willow laughs. "Only if they find us."

  I have a feeling Echo's claustrophobic. She's pacing back and forth. And she looks panicked. "I don't like this small space." She keeps whispering. I just sit against the wall, Willow looking at a video screen. "When will they leave!?" I ask, it's driving Echo mad which is making me feel horrible. "Soon. They're interrogating Eric, and if he gives in, he's gonna have hell to pay." Willow answers. "Echo come here." I hold out my arms for her. She snuggles up and buries her face in my t-shirt. "Is the room still closing in on us?" I roll my eyes. "No it wasn't in the first place Echo." I kiss her head. "I love you Echo." I could feel her smile. "Love you too." "Oh get a room!" Willow hisses playfully.

Echo smells like laundry soap, and scented candles. I like her scent. "Oh dear god Eric, how could you!?" I turn to Willow. She is hissing cuss words at the screen. "Did he tell?" I asked in a panic. "Yes, but just that we had you, not where we are." I am angry. But if I move I'll wake up Echo. " So what are we gonna do?" I ask. Willow shrugs. "I don't have a clue." I begin to think it over. "Well why don't we wait till we have a chance to escape, and go to California?" Willow stares at me. "That might actually work." She say. So we begin to sit and wait.
