The next day, Aiden wakes up. He isn't fully healed, but he can still limply and clumsily walk, and talk as well. Aiden looks like his sister. They both have the same blue eyes, pale skin, and dirty blonde hair. He still hadn't regained full strength by the end of the day, but I know there's something that Ocean's been struggling to tell us all this time, and I wasn't sure if Aiden knew, or not. But, by the time the sun goes down, she can't hold it in.
"Guys, there's something I've forgotten, for putting all my attention into Aiden."
"Okay, what is it "
I ask. Though I know this is true, Evan I can tell is confused.
"The night you came to our house, Aiden left to get food. But he didn't go alone."
I am confused,
"Aiden left with someone who we both wouldn't be here without. His name is Nolan. He's 4 years older than I am, and he is basically responsible for our life. He went with Aiden that night, and he never came back."
Both Evan and I are silent for a minute.
"What do you want us to do? We can look for him, but it's likely he's not okay. Do you remember Aiden?"
"I barely escaped the trap. It was a trap someone set to capture human prey. I ran away on time, but he didn't. I didn't expect to get stabbed on my way back, and so I meant to tell you."
he says, shooting me a look of danger. I now am starting to question why we came back. 4 seemed like too many people. Now we may have 5.
"How about the guys go to find him, we can stay and guard the house."
"No, I want to go."
"I don't know."
"It's hard to be agile with two people. I doubt three people would be able to make it out without being caught by someone."
"It's not wise."
Evan says, backing me up.
"How about Aiden and I go, you two stay here?"
"I have an even better idea. Aiden can tell us where it is, and Amnesia and I try to find him."
"But I don't know what he looks like. Take Ocean instead. Aiden and I can stay here. Right?"
I ask Aiden.
"Sure, why not?"
he says. I doubt he's been listening to any of this conversation.
Evan and Ocean say in unison.
"But let's go tomorrow. It's too close to twilight. I don't want to get caught in the dark."
I shut the trap door, and set a large rock over it, so nobody will come and visit in the night. The next more they set out for Nolan.
