But as I took in my surroundings, the feeling vanished as quickly as it came: the town was burning. I could feel the heat as we neared it; I was sweating like a pig underneath my uniform.
We screeched to a halt and I jumped off. But before I could take a single step further, someone grabbed my shoulder and turned me around.
“Kylie,” I heard Matt say, and I turned to face him. “Get the people out of these houses,” he ordered, pointing to the burning homes behind me. “Make sure they get far away from here.”
I nodded and started to turn, but he grabbed my arm, stopping me. He looked me in the eye through our foggy masks. “Stay safe. I love you,” he said softly.
I nodded again. “I love you too. Stay safe!” My voice rose to a yell as I turned and ran to t

I had made it to the door of my apartment. I felt a sigh escape my lips, ‘Ari is not going to be happy about this’, so I quickly took in a breath of courage and walked in. Immediately I saw Ari sitting on our worn leather couch across the small living room. Most of the lights had been turned off since late afternoon sun poured in through our one, and only, window of the apartment.

Emily and John stopped short, their gazes fixed on the menacing shape of the gun that Crawley was pointing at them.
“Well now, don’t you just show up in the damnedest places?” the mercenary commented. There was a trace of humour in his voice, but his face was frankly forbidding. The two youngsters slowly raised their hands.
“You do know that you’re being lied to, don’t you?” Emily asked, staying as calm as possible. If she could somehow convince Crawley that Gassman was double-crossing them, she and John might just be able to make it out of the museum unscathed.
Crawley looked around quickly, and then he waggled his gun to invite Emily to expand on her theme.
