4. Chapter 3
I turn and run for the door and throw it open and I sprint out of the room and I bump shoulders with someone in a hoodie and I wince but I keep running. I get to the little room and the guy is on the phone. "Are you Emma?" He asks suddenly and I stare at him.
"Why?" I ask and he holds the phone out to me.
"It's for you." He says and I frown and I take the phone from him and press it to my ear. I hear heavy breathing and muffles in the background. Suddenly a scream erupts followed by a woman's voice, pleading for someone not to hurt them and my heart picks up speed and I take a deep breath.
"Who are you?" I ask shakily, feeling the beads of sweat slide down my forehead. The phone begins making the crackling noise that means the person is breaking up but just before the line goes dead, I hear the faintest whisper, 'oh Em'. I set the phone down and I start sobbing. "WHO ARE YOU?!" I shout, falling to my knees and burying my head into my hands.
"My name is Jeff." The guy behind the desk says but I only ignore him, wiping the tears from my eyes.
About 5 minutes later, a pair of strong hands wrap around me and pull me to a standing position, holding me in their arms. "What happened?" Louis asks, stroking my hair and rubbing my back.
"S-someone called me." I stutter out, sniffling.
"Well, I need you to sit down because we have some news for you." He says, taking me over to one of the tacky chairs in the tiny room and sitting me down. I wipe the streaming tears and sniffle, looking up at him. He takes a visible deep breath, running his hand through his hair and blows out a puff of air.
"Well, what is it?" I ask, becoming more and more anxious by the second.
"I don't know how I am going to tell you this." He says and I watch him intently. "So, we were taking fingerprints and we actually found a set of prints." He says, blowing out another puff of air. He kneels down in front of me, resting his hand over mine that is resting on my knee. "We don't know for sure, we are going to send them into the lab for further investigation but, the prints we found were your mother's." He trails off and my heart stops.
"What? That can't be..." I trail off, shaking my head incredulously. "This must be some kind of cruel prank, probably from the person who broke in." I murmur and he just stares up at me.
"We are not for sure but we are going take in the evidence that we collected it from." He says and I look at him.
"What did you find them on?" I ask and he gulps.
"We found it on a picture of you and your parents." He says and my eyes widen.
