2. The Phone Calls

Dan's POV:

I woke up to find Phil asleep on my shoulder. I groaned. No. Not Phil, too. I thought. I slowly got up, trying not to wake Phil. I paced back and forth, trying to put all of these strange events together. None of it made sense. I squinted as the door was unlocked and opened, letting in light. "Wake up your friend. We need to make a call." One said.

I walked over to Phil and shook him gently. "C'mon Phil, you need to wake up." I said quietly. Phil's eyes fluttered open. I helped him up and we walked out together. The men led us to another part of the warehouse. It looked like their living quarters. Two cots, a mini fridge, and a stove were the only things in the room. The men shoved me in a corner and the taller one grabbed Phil.

"Leave him alone!" I yelled. The shorter one punched me and I fell to the ground. He whipped out his phone and dialed a number, pressing the speaker button. "Hello? Who is this?" Asked a kind sounding woman's voice. "Is this Mrs. Lester?" He asked. "Yes." The lady said. Phil's eyes widened. "Mu..." He started. The guy holding him clamped his hand over his mouth. "Now, listen carefully. I will not call again. I've kidnapped your son, Phil Lester. You have three weeks to hand over $200,000 at this address." The short guy said, saying an address into the phone.

"If you don't do as told, you'll never see your son again. Here. Why don't you talk to him?" He said, handing the phone to Phil. I could hear his mom's quiet sobs on the other end. "Mum?" Phil said. "Phil! Oh my gosh, are you alright? Did they hurt you?" She asked. My eyes went to Phil's  back, where the bullet wound was. Phil swallowed. "I...I'm fine. I love you." He said. Mrs. Lester sobbed. "I love you too, Phil. Stay strong, sweetheart." She said. Phil's eyes teared up. "I will mum." He said. The man grabbed the phone again. "You know what you have to do. You have three weeks." He said. Then, he hung up. Phil put his head in his hands and his shoulders shook with sobs.

The same conversation happened when he called my mum. Then, he handed me the phone. "Dan! Are you alright!?" My mum practically screamed. "I'm fine." I said. "I love you, Dan. We'll do everything we can to save you." Mum said. "I...I love you too." I choked. Mum was about to say something more when the line went dead.

The man grabbed the phone from me and took Phil and I back to our 'cell'. Phil looked at me with a hopeless expression. "What're we going to do? Our parents don't have that kind of money!" He said. I hugged my knees. "I don't know, Phil. I really don't know."
