An Outline of a Plan

Emily remembered Chris’ story with perfect clarity. She slowly sat down in reverie and sighed. As much as she loathed this being, she had to figure out some way to get Chris to open the Wonderball. She had to!

She snapped out of her daze when she realized Ed was staring at her.

“Is anyone home?” he asked mockingly. She smiled wryly.

“You want to get out of here, don’t you?”

His eyes widened. “More than anything,” he whispered.

“You rememeber who put you in here? And his promise?”

“Like it was yesterday.”

“Alright; we’ll have to work together to make this work though.”

“Deal,” Ed declared finally, shaking Emily’s outstreached hand. This is too easy, they both thought.

They had no idea how hard it would actually be.
