7. Chapter 7



                I run over to Brittney as soon as I’ve been permitted to come in. She looked better, besides the fact that she’s black in blue. I didn’t care. I sat on her bed and as gently as possible pulled her into my arms as gently as I could without hurting her. I couldn’t believe I just left her with Damon after what happened last night. It’s my fault she ended up like this. My fault that I left her, I felt bad, and I didn’t know how to make it up to her.

                I pushed the hair out of her eyes and the red hand print was starting to go away on her face. She looked like she was in pain and dry tears littered her face. Bruises covered her body, and she couldn’t fight back because I chained her up. It’s all my fault. Lilly handed me the bobby pin. No wonder it jabbed itself into her. It didn’t have ball points like most of them do. It was sharp and bloody and looked very painful. I would have thrown it away but bobby pins are how we could unlock everyone.

                Well, we shouldn’t put bobby pins in our pockets… but I hand it back to Lilly, because I don’t want to see it anyways. “She was screaming for you, you know,” she says. It took me by surprise, why would she scream for me? “Where were you?” Lilly asks again still standing beside her sister, opposite of me.

                “Continuing with the plan,” I say, “Caleb and I placed the cars early this morning.”

                Caleb walked in then, from taking the clothes to the washing machine. “We should probably tie you guys back up, just in case they walk back in.” Caleb says and helps Rosie lie down and then ties her up. “Do we still have one?” Tina asks.

                “We are still going to get out of here, carrying my sister or not.” Lilly argued, and she was right, Caleb and I… We had to at least try to get them out safely; they deserved a good, happy life, and I was going to make sure they have every chance.




                Dinner that night was silent. Brittney was awake now and Hunter refused to leave her side. He kept apologizing, and she just kept saying that it was okay. I’m sure tonight would test her and I didn’t know how long she could travel, if at all. She’s untouchable, from all of her bruises. While Caleb and Hunter packed the rest of us needed rest for the trip tonight. We decided that we would leave at one in the morning, and travel miles across the desert along the stream, it leads right into the jungle and then to the car. Damon and Zane don’t know about it, Caleb and Hunter had found it when they were kids.

                I think everyone is on edge now, the closer one gets. All I’m thinking about is my sister, and that she needs help and she can’t stay here any longer. I was worried that we would run out of food, and we would die of starvation in the desert. But we have bigger issues than that, predators that want US for a meal. We have weapons, and they gave us all one, but we didn’t want to fire them, it would draw attention to us. Around nine at night, Hunter came back from packing, and handed back Brits clean clothes and unlocked her to change back into them. He waited for her patiently on her bed, in a relaxed position, eyes closed. She came out, looking like her old self again, and he smiled at her. Caleb  came in after that, walks over to me and whispers, “Nervous about tonight?”

                “A little…” I say. He sits on my bed and pulls me into a hug. “I promise, that I won’t let anything happen to you Lilly.” He says and kisses me, it took me by surprise, but I didn’t stop him, he let go and laid next to me on my bed.

                I adjusted my position to be closer to him and snuggled into his chest. I could feel his heartbeat, calm and steady, while mine jumped with excitement. I’ve never really had a good guy friend, if you could even call it that. But we aren’t officially dating so I can’t use the term boyfriend. Seconds passed like this, minutes hours. Caleb finally checked his watch. He hugged me tightly and whispered, “time to go,” and I didn’t want to. I didn’t want to risk everything I had, and might be killed or severally punished, and at the same time I wanted to. I NEEDED to.  I wanted this nightmare to finally be over.
