14. A plan
Alexa stayed up all night trying to figure out what to do. She was not sure about anything. She woke up in the morning with a semi-plan.
“Jennifer, is there a time that we go outside or a room with a window that leads to the street?”
“There’s a window over there but it has not opened. Or at least I have never tried to open it because we were told it was locked.”
Alexa walked to the back of the smelly room. Another reason for her sleepless night was the horrible stench of the room. She tried to open the window but it was locked. She looked for a away to open it. She saw a latch on the top of the window. She turned the rusty latch slowly. It was hard to turn but she did. It was opened. She had opened the window to get out. Ginger could get out.
“Ginger! Come here,” said Alexa. Ginger came over. “Ginger, your going to go out this window. The house is not that far away. The back door is always locked. Good Luck,: said Alexa placing the doll on the other side of the window.
It was a windy morning. There was a slight breeze. The clouds in the sky looked like big, fluffy marshmallows. Ginger was still unsure of Alexa’s master plan. It still could malfunction. She hid behind a bush and tried to examine the situation she faced. the house was close, but she could not be caught or else she would be taken to a government facility and questioned. Ginger saw that there was a crowed bus stop. The stop was filled with woman and men, but no children. They all were looking down at their phones oblivious to the outside world around them. One sat on the bench but she was reading, she was deeply into her book. There was no one to catch her. She could easily escape a foot or two. She inched towards the tree that was nearby. It was a mighty oak. Thick, so the people at the bus stop and road couldn’t see. But thin enough for a little girl to see as she walked to the dinner with her father.
“Dolly!!!” exclaimed the excited little girl. She had pon a pink dress. Her hair was in pigtails.
Ginger knew she was doomed.
