October 19, 2016- The intensity of the explosion caused us to fall to the ground. My immediate thoughts turned to Bernard. I prayed that he had not been done away with but at this point, the tall, thin woman was capable of anything. The stakes had become even higher than before.
I held onto the large human and he carried me like a football as we raced across the street. I wondered what was happening and I had a hard time finding my bearings. It was if he could read my mind because he said, “We need to get out of here NOW!” He threw his elbow through a driver’s side window and opened the locked door from the inside. He put me on the seat and pulled out a bunch of different coloured wires from under the steering wheel. I watched as he twisted a couple of the wires together and the engine roared to life.
He looked at me and said, “I hope Bernard is ok.” I shook my head and hoped for the best. We squealed out of the parking space and were followed by a barrage of black vehicles; it was the tall, thin woman and her henchmen, they were gaining on us. I could only focus on what was going on in front of us…it was all too much. It was as if my simple, quiet life had been turned upside down…I wanted things to go back to the way they were but I supposed that it could never happen.
I gathered the courage to look behind us as we raced down the street at breakneck speed when all of the sudden the car we had stolen came to a screeching halt and stopped dead in the middle of the road.
