Hey all, sorry I'm a bit late on this update! I had a bunch going on last night, but here you go!
Fitz unfolded the note for everyone to see.
"This is a trap. It has to be." He said, glancing at his friends.
They were a ragged bunch, with torn, dirty clothes and tired eyes.
"No. I'm not taking that chance. I heard her." Keefe's raw voice said. "If there's a chance it's her, I'm not stopping till i get her back.
"Neither am I." Grady shot. "She's my daughter. But the Neverseen are threatning her life if we don't reveal ourselves."
"So disguise yourself and wait in the crowds. I'm going to find her."
"So am I." Biana agreed. Dex too, same with the rest of their friends and Oralie.
Grady could tell he was outnumbered. "Fine."
Keefe and Fitz met eyes.
Nothing would stop them from getting her back.
20 hours later
Keefe pulled his cloak to shadow his face even more. "Where are they?" he whispered to Biana.
"I don't know. They called this, didnt they?" She said as she pushed through the crowd in the main area of Eternalia.
He glanced over to where FItz and Dex were standing. They were safe, for now.
An explosion echoed from a rooftop, and screams followed.
Keefe looked up to see three cloaked figures.
One was slumped down, and held by the others.
Keefe lurched. Sophie.
Before he could run to her, Biana grabbed his arm. "wait."
She was right.
Gisela cackled. "Oh, Keefe, where are you?" She sing-songed. "I don't think that your girlfriend is going to last much longer under this sopridine!"
Keefe felt like he was going to pass out.
Biana fixed him with a glare. "She's cloaked, we don't know it's her." (Referring to the unconcius one)
"It's her." Keefe's voice came in a broken whisper.
"what do we do?" Fitz's whisper said.
Keefe didn't know. It was taking all his will power not to go running up to his mom and collapsing next to Sophie.
"Keefe? You're running out of time!" Gisela called. "In more ways then one!"
She pulled back the passed-out ones cloak to reveal Sophie's bruised and beaten face.
She was completely uncounciuos and obviously barely breathing.
Keefe let out a small sob.
Gisela turned, seeing him and his friends. "Welcome, my son!"
