As she walked along the dusty railings of the inner walls, Lilli heard Ethan's words resonating within her head. The harder she tried to push them away, the deeper they seemed to dig into her mind. It was enough to give her a headache. Suddenly, her thoughts were broken when she felt herself being jerked from behind.
