24. France

Chapter 21


Avery's POV

"Sir, we need you to calm down. Just listen to what we have to say", the policeman said from the other end of the phone.

"I don't care what you have to say! I just want to know why you haven't found him yet!", Phil yelled into the phone.

"I assure you, we're doing everything we can", the policeman said.

"What the heck do you mean you're doing everything you can?! My best friend is still missing! No I won't accept that! You need to find my friend now or-hello? Hello?!". Phil growled and angrily hung up the phone.

"Was that the police?", I asked, looking up from my phone.

"Yeah. They still haven't found Dan yet. They're trying to tell me that they're doing all that they can, but I'm not buying it", Phil said as he sat down in a chair.

I knelt down in front of Phil, put my hand on his knee and said, "Phil, they're going to find him. You just have to keep telling yourself that".

"I know, I just...I JUST WANT DAN BACK!", Phil cried as he embraced me.

"I know, Phil. Me too", I said as I let a few stray tears fall down my face.

Just then, there was a knock on the door.

"Were you expecting anyone Phil?", I asked.

"No, were you?", he asked as he wiped some tears away.

"No...", I said as I got up and went to see who was at the door.

"Who is it?", Phil asked.

I looked through the peephole in the door, I didn't believe I saw who I saw.

"Could it be?", I thought.

"No. No it can't be", I thought.

I opened the door and there he was, standing in front of me.

"DAN!", I cried as I threw my arms around Dan, "I missed you so much".

"I know, Avery. I missed you, too", Dan said.

"Dan?", Phil said from behind me.

"Phil", Dan said, "I missed you".

"I missed you too, mate", Phil said as he embraced Dan.

"How did you get back?", I asked Dan.

"It was Ruth, actually. She was the one who helped me escape", Dan said.

"And um...Angelica? Does she know you're gone?", Phil asked.

"Oh she knows. Trust me. She knows. She's probably already killed Ruth", Dan said, shaking his head.

"What makes you say that?", I asked.

"Angelica left a voicemail on Ruth's phone. She said that she'd just kill Ruth instead", Dan said.

"Oh that poor girl", I said, "Well, I hate to change the subject, but now that Angelica knows where we are, we probably shouldn't stay here".

"No yeah you're right. But where do we go?", Phil said.

"France", Dan blurted out.

"France? Dan, where did you come up with France?", I asked in surprise.

"Because I've only been there once. And we can't go back to England. It's not safe", he answered.

"That's true. We can't go back to England. At least not now", Phil said in agreement.

"Right. So when do we leave?", Dan asked.

Beep Beep

I pulled out my phone to see who had texted me; however, I didn't recognize the number. I didn't recognize it at all.

"Who's it from?", Dan asked as he took a drink of water.

"Hmm, I don't know. Do either of you know the number (165)-616-1993?", I said.

As soon as I said the phone number, Dan did a spit take all over Phil.

"Dan, what was that?", Phil said.

"Dan, are you alright? You look like you just saw a ghost", I said.

"What...what did the text say?", Dan asked slowly.

"It said 'you're next'", I said, reading the text. Dan's eyes widened and his jaw dropped.

"Yeah we're leaving now. Pack your bags. Both of you", Dan said as he grabbed his suitcase.

"Wait Dan why? What's wrong?", I asked.

"That number?", he said.

"Yeah? What about it?", I asked.

"It's Angelica's", Dan said, "Now pack your bags. We're leaving as soon as we're ready".

Dan's POV

We were on the plane that was going to take us to France. Hopefully we will finally be safe in France.

"Dan?", Avery asked.

"Mm?", I mumbled as I scrolled through my phone.

"Do you you think we'll finally be safe?", Avery asked.

I locked my phone and said, "Avery, I wish I could say for sure. But the truth is. I don't know".

"What if Angelica comes after me? You heard what she texted me! 'You're next'!", Avery said.

"Avery, it's going to be alright. She won't hurt you. Not as long as I'm alive. Now try to get some rest".

"Mkay", Avery said as she leaned her seat back and closed her eyes.

I too was feeling quite tired, so I decided to attempt to sleep as well. So I leaned my seat back and led my eyes close.

~ 5 Hours Later ~

"Dan? Dan?", I heard Phil say.

"Hm? What? What is it?", I said as I rubbed my eyes.

"We're here. We're in France. And we have a cab waiting for us", Phil said.

The cab took us to the place where we were staying. We were staying in an inn right in the heart of Paris. 

"How may I help you?", the lady at the front desk asked us.

"We have a reservation for two rooms", Dan said.

"Name?", she asked.

"Howell", Dan said.

The lady looked through her guest book and said, "Ah yes, I  have you right here. You are in rooms 165 and 166. Here are your keys and you can just call if you need anything".

"Thank you, ma'am", I said.

The three of us then made our way to our rooms. They were a lot more old-fashioned than the two previous inns that we stayed at. The beds had floral bed spreads and the walls were a cream color. Both of the rooms had balconies and they both had green carpet. Each room also had a closet, bathroom, and a TV.

"Are you going to be alright?", I asked Avery.

"Yeah. I'll be fine", she half-smiled.

"Okay. Just call if you need anything", I said.
"I'll do that", she said.

"Alright. Have a good night", I said.

"You too. Goodnight", she said as she departed into her room.

The danger is definitely not over for the three of us.
