Their steps down the corridor echoed as they got closer and closer to their fate. Megan Adara kept looking straight ahead, but Kai Adara looked round, unable to take it all in.
‘How are you not petrified?’ Kai asked.
‘Dad, I’ve met her before. She doesn’t scare me anymore. She trusts me.’ Megan said.
‘You want me to trust her too?’
‘Great. That’s really not what I wanted to hear.’
‘What would you prefer me to say? She’s gonna bite your head off if you speak out of turn?’
‘She won’t…will she?’
Megan rolled her eyes and led Kai further down the corridor. They reached the main room and Kai was shocked. The room was open and there was a central controls command in the middle of the room. Megan led him up to the controls. They waited, Kai not quite sure what he had walked into. Footsteps walked towards them. Megan straightened her clothes and her posture. Edward Thomas walked into the room and stopped when he saw them.
‘Were we expecting you?’ Edward checked.
‘AT2 was expecting us.’ Megan tried to tread carefully.
‘That explains a lot. You’d better follow me.’ Edward caught sight of Kai’s worry.
Megan led Kai round to follow Edward back the way he had just come. The corridor was long and they finally got to a room on the right side. They walked in and Edward shut the door behind them. Amy Thomas was standing at the table, examining a map. Cameron Thomas was standing on her right, pointing at a place on the map.
‘Amy, next time you want someone to come down here, at least give the rest of courtesy of knowing you’ve done so.’ Edward complained.
Amy and Cameron looked up and stood straight at the sight of Megan and Kai.
‘You made it?’ Amy was a little shocked.
‘Got here as quickly as we could.’ Megan shrugged.
‘Amy, what’s going on?’ Edward asked.
‘You remember the Adara family?’ Amy said.
‘They’re Adaras?’ Cameron was shocked.
‘Someone attacked their house in the UK. Megan was the only one who got out. Kai was already in the States. Whoever is after them killed Megan’s Mum and kidnapped her brother Jeb. We have to do something to get them back.’ Amy explained.
‘How are we gonna do that exactly? Our numbers are dwindled as it is.’ Cameron said.
‘We just need to give them as much information as possible and give them any equipment they need. We won’t go too far.’ Amy looked up at Cameron.
‘You really enjoy messing with my head, don’t you?’ Cameron groaned.
‘It’s my speciality.’ Amy grinned.
Cameron rolled his eyes and nudged Amy.
‘Tell us everything.’ Amy looked at Megan and Kai.
Neither of them knew how to start, their lives crumbling in front of them.
