5. Chapter 5



                Hunter took me into his room to see the escape tunnel that we would go through. It was big enough for a skinny person to just get through, good thing all of us are. I’d never been in he room before, in fact, I’ve never been anywhere in this place but tied to a bed.

                “I don’t know about this…” I say almost feeling like it’s oozing ‘bad idea’ and ‘don’t come through’. All of the sudden, he wraps me in his arms and holds me close and kisses me so softly and I relax my body into him and let him kiss me. For the moment, it’s perfect. Caleb walks in and flicks the light on. He jumps out of his skin when he sees us and our embarrassed/shocked faces.

                “Oh… he says. Sorry.” And walks out I unwind form him, feeling the moment and passion gone. But he isn’t done yet and pulls me back and kisses me more intensely this time. Now he’s the one to pull away and holds his cold hands to my hot face, making me look him in the eyes.

                “I love you.” He says and my eyes go wide and I blush. I guess he didn’t give me a chance to answer him, “I have since the first time I saw your face in the back of the van.” I was still studded and couldn’t speak, and it looked like he expected this. I turned away, my cheeks flourishing pink. “I suppose we’d better get back.” He says, not meeting my eyes as he leads me out the door and back into the main room.

                He walks back in and holds the door open for me but looks at Tina and says “Okay… so, Tina, have you figured out the distance with the map and how long will it take to travel through the desert and forest?”

                Through the desert, it is going to take the longest. The woods is just 1/4th of the trip.

                We spend all day doing this until dinner and we have hot dogs and potato chips. I still don’t know what to think of all this, and it happened so suddenly. I need to talk to my sister about it but as the day went on, Hunter never left the room. Searching for an answer or any sort of reaction from me that I wasn’t able to give. Not yet. I needed time to recollect my feelings and now was not the time. But then again, when is? We are just about to attempt a daring escape and we really have no time for love and no room for error. And this is what I needed to focus on, not love, but getting Lilly and I out alive.





                The plan was when Zane and Damon went out for groceries; we would drive one of their many cars; one they won’t notice is missing until we are gone out in the river with water and tares of clothing inside, to make Zane and Damon think that our bodies floated down the river. Then as for the escape vehicle we will park somewhere concealed in bushes and trees near where the mailbox should be. It was complicated, but made since at the same time. I was exhausted by the topic but we needed to discuss it or we might not be prepared, and I still don’t think that we totally are. I can see it on my sister’s face that she knows something is going to go wrong and it probably will, but we have to escape before Damon and Zane get to us. Who knows what they would do to us, or the boys for betraying them.

                It’s written all over Brit’s face that something happened when Hunter took her to his room. I winked at her and she rolled her eyes at me but when she came back she looked shocked. I rolled with it and I would ask her about it later maybe when it was just us girls in this creepy old place. After I gave Brit her insulin injection, I was tired and decided to turn in early after dinner. All of this was just so stressful and complex. All I want is to get back to my mom and live my life again. But before I had the chance, Hunter handed me something, a piece of paper and my charm bracelet, which I immediately slipped on. I looked at him questionably but he looked away.  


            I will be there at the exit, every single day from 6-7 I will leave a phone and insulin for your sister, in a box, in a bush for you to call me when you get there, at any hour and I will come get you or you can call 911 and meet me at the hospital if someone is injured. The box will be locked, and only you have the key, on your necklace and charm bracelet. I know you have at least one of them because you gave your charm bracelet to Hunter and hopefully he has given it back by now or with this letter. I prey that you and your sister and whoever else comes back safely and I love you so much. I believe in you, I know that you and your sister have every chance of getting out of there, you are strong and independent and together you can get through this. I love you honey and I’ll see you soon.

                I treasured this note from my mom and I said thank you to Hunter. Tomorrow is a big day and I needed my rest, but I lie in bed for hours thinking I could potentially lose my sister, and if we stayed here, I have an almost definite chance of losing her. I tried so hard to fall asleep, and the key to falling asleep if not think about it and not try to go to sleep and sleep will come. But that was always so hard. I don’t know how long I was awake and how long I was asleep. All I knew is when I woke up, everyone was gone and I was alone.
