August 21, 2017- “You’re kidding yourself if you think that I’m going to call you that,” Simba said as I ignored him.
I stared out the window for a second and gulped. The ground had to be fifteen feet below us.
“This is way too high to jump!” I said.
“Shhh! We don’t know who is still in the house so keep it down! You’re going to get us caught!” Simba said through gritted teeth.
“I’m going to get us caught? You’re the one who got us into this mess in the first place!” I remind him.
“Because you’ve never got us into trouble right? Is that what you’re saying?”
“Just forget it! Focus on how we’re going to get out of here!” I said. My mind whirled, and my eyes settled on a bunch of blankets at the end of the bed.
“Wait a second…grab me those sheets,” I commanded. Simba didn’t ask any questions as he handed me three of them.
“We’ll tie these together and use them to climb down the side of the house; secure that end to this lamp, it should hold our weight,” I said.
Simba did as I said and quickly began making knots in the sheets, “This should do it!” He said.
“Good, now throw the other end out the window!”
“You go first,”Simba said, and I didn’t hesitate. I climbed out the window and peered over the edge,”This doesn’t completely reach the ground, but at least it’s only a six-foot drop from the end.
“Better than 15!” Simba echoed.
Suddenly, the door burst open, the sound scared me half to death, and I almost jumped out of my skin. Amelia was back, and she had caught us in the midst of our escape.
