Accursed Luck

I was done.

Enough moping.

I couldn’t hide forever, and I knew something went wrong. Neither Ezra or Lily had answered back, and it wasn’t in their nature to forget things that easily.

Not unless they were helped by some outside force.

And I knew exactly what that outside force was.

I started stuffing everything I knew I might need into my travel pack: clothes, food, flashlight, rope, lighter, blanket, and a few safety pins.

It was amazing how many things could be done with a single safety pin!

I took one last panoramic glance at our small home, the empty, abandoned apartment we had been so lucky to find. So lucky…

Where had our luck gone?

I filed those thoughts into the back of my mind, and left quickly, shutting the door behind me, setting the alarm, and setting off to find my two companions.

Hopefully, I could make our luck change.
