       That day, after Cyrus and Alice got kidnapped, no one said anything. No one knew. Not even their own friends.                                                 ~~~    Jackson's Point Of View    ~~~Cyrus and Alice said they would meet us in the cafeteria at lunch. They didn't tell us where exactly, but I was really sure they would be at the same place we always eat lunch at.      Strangely, they were not there. We looked for them everywhere but still couldn't find them. We thought of calling them but their phones are both not working."What do you think they are doing?" Sally said worried,"I don't know, I mean they told us they would be here. If they wanted to go somewhere else wouldn't they tell us? Like call us or text us?" I asked more to myself,

                                ~~~    Alice's Point Of View    ~~~"Jackson! Go faster! They are following us with two cars!" I say looking behind me at the two black cars. "I am trying!" he yells at me not looking back,"Then try harder Jack!" I yell back. I look down to check on Cyrus and he's passed out. "Shit," I mumbled checking his pulse.  "What?" Sally turned around, "We need to go to Dr. Harlod, Jack," I say tears appearing in my eyes. Dr. Harlod is Sally's cousin. He graduated with a doctorate degree. He graduated about a year ago and started working in the biggest hospital in Goldfinch.           When we get to the hospital, it is pretty busy so the black cars aren't behind us anymore. I am sure they have given up on us and pro

                      ~~~    Cyrus's Point of View    ~~~          "Jackson, start the car, they are still following us!" Alice yells at him and he swiftly starts the car and drives off to the road hitting the gas hard and driving it as fast as it could go while mumbling 'we're dead'.         I am not sure where Jack is driving to but it certainly isn't the way to any of our homes."Jack do you know where you're going?" I ask, "No, but we can't go home. It's too dangerous, so we are just going to drive until they lose us," Jack says gripping the steering wheel tight, "Are you insane?! No, we are not going to do that. Our parents will be worried-" Sally says"Would you prefer them dead than worry about us?!" Jack yells cutting her off, "We can tell the Sheriff!

                                ~~~    Cyrus's Point of View    ~~~               It is not something I knew long ago. It's not something I discovered in grade 7. It's something I came upon just now.The fact that I am in love with Alice.           I am sitting on the bed looking at the one and only...Alice. She is sleeping peacefully with her face turned to me. She is absolutely irresistible. From her dark brown hair up to her beautiful long eyelashes to her small cute nose to her appealing pink lips. She is just glamorous.           Jack walks out of the bathroom wearing shorts and nothing on top showing off his 6 packs. He has a towel around his neck and his hair was dripping wet. He looks at me swooning over Alice.He rai

While we are driving through the town people give us looks. "What the hell is this town?" Jack whispers more to himself, "Why are they looking at us this way? And why do they all look like they are in the 19 somethings?" Sally says looking out the window giving them dirty looks, "Guys, I don't think we can find a hotel just driving around. Let's take a walk and look for one," Alice says getting ready to get out of the car, "Are you out of your mind? Don't you see the look they are giving us when we are in the car? Who knows what they would do when we are out of the car?" Jack keeps driving through the crowded roads,

                                  ~~~    Cyrus's Point of View    ~~~    On our way back to Goldfinch, the only thing we could do was sleep. Jack and I switched places a couple of times while one of us drive and the other sleeps. It was a 6 and a half hours drive back to Goldfinch. We expected the black cars to follow us on our way back like they did the last two times, but there was no sign of them. Right the second we got to the hospital we ran to my mother's room. She was lying on the bed while my dad was sitting on one of the chairs. They were both asleep and we didn't want to wake them up so we decided on getting some breakfast until then.      We are currently on our way to the cafeteria to eat something while my parents rest. I barely said two words on our way to the hospital and until now. I can tell my friends
