Lost and Found
“No,” said Griffin. “No…no! She can’t be one of us. There’s never been anything to show…” he ran his hand through his untidy, dirty blond hair. “Do you know where she is?”
I shook my head.
“Well we have to find her…he said, clearly frustrated. “We can only look here at the school till four, so we might as well get a head start.”
We started walking to our next class. We’d have to look everywhere, but for now we’d have to wait it out in English. When the bell rang, we were out of the classroom in milliseconds, even though it was our favorite subject.
We looked all over campus till school ended, then drove all over the neighborhood when school let out. Griffin parked at his house right around the corner and we decided to go on foot for the time being. Walked from there, taking the route that the ambulance would have. When we had walked a couple of blocks, just when we were talking about turning back, the bush beside us rustled, and out jumped…Elli.
“Boo,” she said, and grinned.
