Alice charges at me and knocks me over in a tackle.
“Hurry, now!” She whispers as she “struggles” to keep me pinned to the ground.
I pull up the message and hit send, we make a show of our struggle and I peak to see if it went – it did and lucky just in time because Charles strolls back into the clearing at this time.
“Enough!” He says.
I whisper to Alice “Did it.” and we both stop fighting to face an angry Charles.
“What do you want from me, Charles?” I ask, standing up slowly.
Charles sneers, “The only thing you have that we want is death and power. I need the first to get the second. So, I’m sure you can guess how this will end.”
