I grabbed my phone and called pressed #1. Jacobs was on speed dial. He picked up in
the middle of the first ring.
“Jacobs! I need you to come get me.”
“Okay, I’ve been parked behind a bush for over an hour! I
knew something like this would happen- What exactly did happen?”
“I’ll explain later, just hurry!”
I grabbed my bag and stuffed all my things in it and zoomed
down the staircase.
I whipped my head around. Emma was standing right behind me
will a confused look on her face.
“I gotta go! I have a-um-a thing!” I hastily explained.
I ran out the door and jumped in the car and Jacobs sped
away. Once we were far enough away, I let out a big sigh and closed my eyes.
That was close.
“So??” Jacobs questioned.
“Emma’s parents work
for Innovated Genetics”, I said. He almost ran into a mailbox.
“JESUS CHRIST! How did they find us?”
I buried my face in my hands and was silent for the rest of
the car ride home.
