"And Jake is where?" Destiny asked.
This was a question all four people, in the room, wanted to know. "That's a good question." I whispered.
I slowly picked the letter out of my pants and sat down, unfolding the crumbled paper. "He's gone." I stared at the words written so neatly on one straight line. "I don't know if he's going to come back."
"Mind if I look at that?" Destiny asked.
I leaned forward and placed it into her waiting hand. She studied the note for a long time but I could see, on her face, that whatever she was trying to do wasn't working.
"Can I keep this?" She asked.
"Yeah." I shrugged.
She placed the letter inside of a drawer. "Anything else I can answer for you two?"
"No." I shook my head and rose from the chair.
Eli and I left the room, coming back into the room of now all sleeping people. "I'll go see if they'll spare some rooms." Eli stated and moved out of the room.
I stared at Dylan, Arianna, Jessica, Ryan and Savanna as they all slept peacefully. I wished they could stay that way forever, stay oblivious to the evils in the world.
