“Guys, there’s water up here!” Regan called softly from on top of the boulder.

DSC_0214

“Below?” Lily asked, crawling up beside Regan.

“It’s coming out of the rock,” Regan explained.

DSC_0215

“Will it help us get out of here?” Maddi gave Ellie a boost.

“Yeah.”

DSC_0216

Once everyone had clambered onto the rock, Regan began to explain her plan.

“. . .We’ll form a human chain, and lower ourselves down the waterfall . . .”

DSC_0217

“We’re going to get a little wet,” Regan foretold while everyone made a human chain.

“Regan, are you sure this is going to wwwwoooorrrrkkkk!” Ellie slipped and toppled off the waterfall!

“Ellie!” Regan gasped.

She grabbed Ellie . . .

causing everyone to fall down after them!

DSC_0221

Ellie started to scream, but Natalie slapped her hand over Ellie’s mouth before the sound passed her lips.

DSC_0222

“Oof!” Maddi cried as she struck her head on a rock.

DSC_0223

They tried to untangle themselves when they stopped falling.

DSC_0224

As they pushed themselves up, Regan said “I guess we got a little wetter then I expected.”

DSC_0225

“Oh,” Maddi moaned.

DSC_0226

“Are you okay?” Lily asked, touching Maddi’s head.

Maddi winced. “I-I hit my head on that rock.”

DSC_0227

“I’m sure you’ll be fine,” Lily assured.

“Thanks,” Maddi gave a pained smile, then leaned on Lily.

Suddenly, they heard voices!

“I thought I heard someone cryin’ over here,” a male voice said from the other side of the boulder.

DSC_0228

“Quick!” Regan hissed, motioning.

DSC_0229

They pressed themselves up against the wall, and waited for the guards to leave.

“What was that?” the voice demanded.

“It was probably just the wind,” the other guard said.

DSC_0230

After the guards passed, Regan let her breath out.

“We’re safe.”

DSC_0231

They girls got up and looked around.

Ellie began to wave. “Over here!” she mouthed.

DSC_0232

“Look!” She pointed. “It’s our bedding.”

DSC_0233

“Up there!” Amy said.

DSC_0234

Above them was the hole they had tossed their things through earlier.

DSC_0235

Then they began looking around them.

DSC_0236

They were in an alley.

DSC_0237

“All these years,” Lily shook her head slowly, and tears sprung to her eyes. “I was so close to home.”
