15. Suspects

'How did he get out of jail?!' Jim asked quietly.
'But more importantly, what are those boys doing to him..' Trixie added.
'I am so confused.' Jim said shaking his head.
Brenden suddenly walked forward into the room, 'So, you know we got you out of jail for a reason, but you haven't succeeded. Now you know what is to come. That sneaky Belden girl and her little red head friend are onto us and it was your job to keep what is going on quiet. But you failed us.'
Trixie's anger flared up. Not about what was happening but at how they had just called Jim the 'little red head friend'.
Finlay sat in the middle, un able to do anything else. His eyes rested on Brenden angrily. Brenden stepped forward and pulled the gag off hastily.
'Anything to say?' He asked smirking.
Finlay opened his mouth to say something when suddenly Trixie sneezed Her hand flew to her mouth, but it was to late. Brenden looked at the window just in time to see Jim and Trixie ducking down.
'Get them!' Brenden screeched.

The chase was on.
'Trix come on!' Jim yelled grabbing her by the arm and leading her out to the foot path.
Then they sprinted for their lives. Trixie took the risk of glancing behind her and was shocked to see that 5 of the boys were after them. 5 that they could see anyway. And they were fast.
'Jim faster!' Trixie said trying to quicken her passe.
Jim was faster then Trixie but there was no way he was leaving his girl behind. They kept running up the sidewalk until they came to a intersection.
'Left!' Jim said turning and half pulling Trixie that way too.
They kept running right until they had reached the edge of the main street. People were out and about. Good Surely they couldn't do anything with witnesses around. Trixie and Jim slowed to a speed walk. The boys following them did also but didn't take their eyes of the two.
'They are still following us.' Trixie murdered as they crossed a road.
'We need to loose them and get to the car.' Jim mumbled back.
He lead her to the right and they went into a big clothing shop. The boys followed but lost site of them in between the rails and rails of clothes. Trixie and Jim had ducked down and were using the hanging clothes to their advantage. The boys walked frown one isle then another. Trixie and Jim managed to edge their way back to the shop entrance. As the boys went town the next isle they stood and made a run for it. Out the door and to the left all the way to Brenden's house where they had left the car. Trixie glanced behind them.
'I don't see them.' She sighed with relief.
They got into the car but as Jim turned the key he noticed a few figures looming up to the car.
Trixie looked in shock. She looked around hoping that what she could see wasn't happening.
'We are surrounded..' Jim said.
