Heya peeps! Just in case you were wondering . . . OOTW should be up sometime this week . . . I was to lazy to take any pictures for it xD
Everyone turned to stare at Lily.
“Uh . . .what?” Ellie asked.
“Don’t you know where we are?!” Lily demanded.
When no one answered, she continued.
“This is Stark Laboratory! Remember? That weird place outside of Star City that everybody avoided because it was creepy?”
“Not that this is important, but, before I got captured, I saw this thing in the newspaper,” Regan said.
“Yes?” Lily asked.
“It was about Stark Laboratory . . . how they found this girl that was missing . . . you.”
“Oh!” Ellie pipped up. “Since we are talking about stuff that won’t help us in any way, I saw something like that in the newspaper, but for Amy.”
A piece of paper blowing out of a dumpster got Regan’s attention.
She stooped over and picked it up.
(Sorry for sideways picture)
“Hey guys, look at this,” Regan motioned them over.
Two girls, Elinor Smith, age ten, and Natalie Thomas, age twelve, disappeared yesterday from their homes.
If you see these girls, please contact their parents at . . .
“They noticed we were gone!” Ellie cheered.
“We should really get going,” Lily said. “Before they–” she looked pointedly at the wall, where guards were talking together,”–come to find us.”
“Ellie, you get the bedding,” Regan instructed, folding up the piece of newspaper and sticking it into her belt.
“Is there something to . . . tie this?” Ellie asked, starting to fold the blankets.
“There’s bound to be something in here . . .” Regan began sorting through the dumpster.
“Here, I found you a stretchy thing.” Regan handed the ‘stretchy thing’ to Ellie.
“Thank you, my dear friend, but I need one more.”
“Catch!” Regan called.
“Got it!” Ellie answered.
After looping the ‘stretchy thing’ around two more blanket pillow sets, Ellie held up the remaining set. “Regan . . .?”
“Argh!” Regan tossed a third ‘stretchy thing’ to Ellie. “You’re in luck!” she called “I found a three-pack of headbands!”
“We should get going,” Lily insisted.
“Could I have a little help here? I’m pretty much being our pack-horse.”
“Natalie will help you!” Lily volunteered.
“What?!” Natalie shrieked. “Me?!”
“Yeah!” Here,” Ellie shoved a bundle into Natalie’s face.
“Fine, I’ll play pack-horse with you,” Natalie grumbled.
“Thank you! Okay, let’s go.”
As they left the alley, something fluttering on the breeze caught Lily’s eye.
She pulled two posters off the wall.
Underneath the words were pictures of Ellie and Natalie.
Dr. Stark found these girls outside of his laboratory this morning . . .
When Lily read ‘Dr. Stark’ she crumpled up the posters and shoved them into her pocket. Dr. Stark, she thought angrily.
