An Adept stood there. "Hi?" I said.
"Human!" he whispered. He tried to grab Ruth.
"Ruth!" I yelled. We were separated, and I could barely see her. Finally I was able to grab her hand. "Stay together." I cried. The Adept ran after us as Ruth and I got into the hallway. We found a closet, and hid. It was dark.
"Did you see that place?" Ruth asked.
"No, I was too busy."
"Ruth, save it. Someone's coming. Let's get out, back into a vent, maybe, and find Kirall. But surprise is definatly out the window."
"Let's just get out of this closet." I sighed.
