The next morning, I woke up at 8:00 with a feeling of dread. I knew something must have happened. I quickly woke up the boys and turned on the news just in time to hear the latest news story. It was about Amber. We heard the reporter say "There has been an Amber alert issued for a missing child named Amber. She is tall, thin, and 12 years old. Police believe she was kidnapped in the early hours of the morning by her dad, who was jailed for child abuse 4 years ago and recently broke out. Call this number if you have any information on the whereabouts of this child." We all gasped. We didn't know that Amber's dad had abused her. I quickly shut off the TV, so we just sat there for about 2 hours, thinking. "I think that we should go to Amber's friend's houses and try to gather a search party." Niall spoke up. "Actually, I think we should be able to find her friends at the orphanage.. I think we should visit where she was last seen, anyway." Liam said. I nodded. We all got up and filed out and into the car. Once we got to the orphanage, we walked into Amber's room to find the window shattered, bed-sheets everywhere, and Nina and Mariel sobbing on Amber's bed. Niall ran over and tried to calm them down. It took about 3 hours to get them to calm down, and about 4 hours to clean up the room. The window now had no glass, and at least it was summer so that there was no cold seeping in. By that time, it was dark out. Nina suddenly gasped, and all heads snapped toward the window, where a dark figure was sliding through. Niall, Louis, Liam, Zayn and I got into defensive positions, and Mariel and Nina started giggling. "What?" Niall asked. Nina and Mariel ran over to the figure and hugged it. "AMBER!?!?" Louis shouted. "Yep." Amber replied. I ran up to her and wrapped her i a hug that turned into a group hug. Just then, we heard an angry bellow. "Where are you bitch!?!?" Amber visibly paled. "Who is that?" I asked worriedly. "That's..." Nina trailed off, looking at Amber. "My dad." Amber whispered.
Sorry for the short chapter, and the cliffhanger! I'll update as soon as I can, but that might be a while. I have a very busy week. On Monday I have Math League, on Tuesday, I have to deliver cookies, on Wednesday I have Girl Scouts, on Thursday, I have a violin concert, and on Friday I have to go to my brother's thing. I forget what that is. Anyway, I have a very busy week ahead of me. I'll update as soon as I can, though! Bye!
