HELLO FROM THE OTHER SIDE! I MUST HAVE CALLED A THOUSAND TIMES! TO TELL YOU I'M SORRY! FOR BREAKING YOUR HEART! BUT WHEN I CALL YOU NEVER SEEM TO BE HOME!

 

Chapter 16
 

 

 

          After three more hours of walking, we came up to a beautiful, sparkling lake.

 

          It had green plants all over, trees, bushes, even some plants I didn’t know. There was a bridge leading to a gazebo, then the bridge kept going to the other side of the lake.

 

          I looked over at Jack and he was sitting down on a rock nearby. “We could stop here and eat if you guys want.” I called.

 

          “Okay.” Jack said.

 

          We walked over to the gazebo, sat down, and ate some fruit. We weren’t that hungry. When we were done I fished around in my backpack for something and felt something in there that I didn’t notice before. A…swimsuit? I told Dylan and Jack to look in their backpacks too. Sure enough, there were swimsuits for them too.

 

          It dawned on Jack first.

 

<><><> 

 

          A few minutes later, we were all in our swimwear. And splashing around in the lake. We were all laughing, splashing, and ding cannon balls in the lake.

 

          It was the most fun that I had had in a while.

Okay, this is the second to last chapter! 

 

 

Chapter 17
 

 

 

          When we were done, we dried ourselves off and changed back into our normal clothes.

 

          It was already getting dark by that point, so Dylan went to go find some firewood so we could cook the remains of the bird. He came back and we ate the bird and some grapes.

 

          We figured that we should probably sleep under the gazebo. Dylan volunteered to take first watch. So, I drifted off to sleep for couple of hours but kept waking up in between. I walked over to where Dylan was sitting and sat down next to him.

 

          “You can go to sleep now if you want.” I told him.

 

          “No.” He said. “You should back to sleep.”

 

          “I can’t sleep.” I said. “Might as well start my watch early.”

 

          “Okay.” He said. Then, he said, “Do you think that map really leads somewhere?”

 

          “I sure hope so.” I said.

 

          “If it does, what do you think is out there? You know, in the outside world.”

 

          The truth was, I was actually kind of scared of what was out there. But, I just said, “I don’t know, I hope it’s something decent.”

 

          “Yeah, me too.”

 

          Then, he kissed me and I had the feeling my brain was melting right through my body.

 

          When he drew away, he walked over to where he set up his stuff and went to sleep.

 

<><><> 

 

          Once the sun rose, I used the fire wood the Dylan brought last night and heated up some fish, and set out another assortment of berries.

 

          They woke as soon as I finished setting everything out. We ate breakfast and set off for the day. We crossed another bridge about half an hour after crossing the other side of the river.

 

          We walked for hours, taking in the breathtaking views of the forest. Then, I spotted something that was out of place.

 

          There, at the end of the forest, was a big building.

This is the last chapter! I hope you guys like this chapter! 

 

 

 

Chapter 18
 

 

 

                I looked at the map and sure enough, that was where it lead.

 

          “I think we should go in.” Jack said.

 

          “Yeah.” I said back.

 

          We all made our way to the building, and stopped short when the front door opened and the woman from the hologram walked out. She was wearing all white and her hair was picked up in the same hairstyle from the hologram.

 

          “Welcome.” She said, “My name is Eveline Lester.” She gestured us to come in the building.

 

          We first walked into what looked like one of those front office things. Then, we walked in to a laboratory where a bunch of scientists were at holographic computers. They were all looking at different parts of the forest. I caught a glimpse of one that had us on the screen. Then, it hit me.

 

          They were watching us the whole way through.

 

          Dylan spoke first, “Why did you put  us in that forest?”

 

          “That,” Eveline said. “Will be for another time. Now come,” She said, gesturing us to follow her, “There’s a dining room just past this hall.”

 

          We followed her through a door. This hallway looked different than the other one. This one looked like a hotel hall. We turned a corner, and there was a dining room.

 

          It had a big, crystal chandelier hanging from the ceiling. The table was made of mahogany same went for the chairs. On top of the table, there was a bouquet of white lilies and red roses.

 

          We sat down at the table. I felt out weird sitting in such a fancy place with dirt and mud caked on my clothes and my hair was probably a mess.

 

          Some waiters came by and first served us tomato soup. I had never tasted anything like it before. It was hot and creamy and it made me feel all warm inside. Then, they served us roast beef and a baked potato. The beef tasted so much better then what we were eating back in the forest. For dessert, they served us blueberry pie. I couldn’t remember the last time I felt this full.

 

          The whole meal was sort of awkward, considering the fact that the people who were serving this meal to us put us in an isolated forest. But, I didn’t pay any attention to whatever they were saying. They were only distractions from the food.

 

          “Hey Ellyn, Jack. Can I talk to you for a sec?”

 

          “Sure.” I said, getting up. “Jack.”

 

          “But I’m not done with my pie yet.” He said.

 

          “Jack!” I said, annoyed.

 

          He raised his hands in mock surrender, “Okay, okay, I’m coming.” He stood up from the mahogany chair.

 

          The three of us walked out to the hall.

 

          It was a while of us just standing there before Dylan said, “Okay, I know they gave us an amazing feast but-”

 

          “Speaking of amazing feast, I really need to get back to my pie so,” He started to walk away.

 

          I pulled on the back of his shirt, “Jack, you can finish your pie later. Right now, we need to know what we’re going to do.”

 

          “I think I know.” Dylan said. “We should stay here while we can, then when the time is right, we’ll leave.”

 

          “You mean escape?” I asked.

 

          He looked down at his feet, looked back up, and said, “Yeah.”

Thank you! I actually got the idea for that part because I was listening to the song. I'm still trying to come up with a title for the next one.

Well... The beginning is good so far, except for the insta-love. But if you don't like it anymore, I'll stop reading it.
