Heart pounding, labored breath, feet hitting against the concrete floor was all Luna could hear as the group ran down the corridor, trying to get back to the stairs. Looking over her shoulder, she hadn't noticed she was the one in front of the rest which surprised her due to how short she was, she was mainly focused on not getting caught. Suddenly, she was grateful mama had forced her to join various sports team at her old school.
"I'm not wanting to die, so if you guys would wasting your breath on arguing and use it to run faster, that'd be great." Luna said, tired of them trying to place the blame.
It got extremely dark once Luna reached the stairs, wanting to get up the stairs faster she decided on skipping two steps at a time. The combination of it being so dark and Luna being so short, while going up the stairs as fast as she could ended up in her missing a step, her ankle rolled. As she fell, she heard a crack then a moment later a sharp pain shot up her ankle. Tears begging to form.
"Are you okay? Can you get up?" Karolina worried. Luna attempted to put wait on her ankle but a fiery pain spread before she fell back down.
"Here, I got you." Chase picked her up bridal style.
Getting to the top of the stairs, they saw the door was closed, Luna groaned, "Could this day get any worse?" There was no doubt in her mind that they were going to get caught.
"Shit! Which one of you guys closed the door behind us?" Alex questioned.
"Are we trapped down here?" Karolina worriedly asked.
"We're gonna be I'm so much troubled." Luna cried, mostly from the agonizing pain from her ankle.
"God, it won't budge! It must be locked." Alex struggled to open the door.
Chase set Luna down, she leaned against the stone wall for support while he went over to Alex, pushing him out of the way, "Don't take this the wrong way, Wilder, but a little upper body strength might help" he let out a grunt as he pushed against the door, "Heavier than it looks."
"Yeah, everyone, come on, push together." Alex ordered, everyone but Luna and Molly began pushing with all their strength.
"I hear footsteps." Molly said, soon she too was pushing against the door and it seemed to be work, the doors flew open and most of the group fell on the floor.
Luna began hopping on her good foot when the doors began closing, "Guys!" Luna panicked, she really didn't want to get caught.
The group ran towards the doors, holding them open giving Chase enough time to go inside and grab Luna, "I told you, I got you." He smiled as they made it back to the study.
"Let's keep moving," everyone ran back outside, stopping in front of the guest house, "You guys into the guest house. I have an idea." Alex said.
