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