- I squatted down in the big closet and then sat and pulled my legs against my chest. I didn’t know whose closet I was in, but with the number of doors I’d run past, it would take them a while to find me. Later, I’d stop and examine the fact that I knew the halls I’d just run through. I’d seen them for years. These halls had been the magical place I escaped to when I was young and needed some solace from reality. Now, here I was and they were real after all.
- Looking out the closet door that was open a crack, I noticed I’d left the door to the room open. Stupid move, may as well have left them bread crumbs to follow. I was just about to rush out and close it when two large men walked in. Troy and Victor. I lowered my head to my knees and stayed as still as I could. This was something I could do. I’d practiced it all my life, being small and invisible.
- “She came in here.” Victor said with no hesitation.
