"London?" I asked, surprised. "But how did you get up here? And why?"
"Well, it's a long story. But basicly, I need help. Well, London needs help."
"Sorry?" i said, not sure what he meant.
"Okay well in the town I'm from, there's this sort of gang. They're- different. Our whole town's controlled by them. People don't realise, but they've taken over. If people speak out, they disappear. I don't know how many there are. There's about 5 original leaders, but there could be hundreds of them now, spread over several towns. They've decided to move on to London now. They've already infiltrated the government, so it'll be easy, unless someone stops them."
"So what, your looking for police or something?" i asked, still confused.
"No, I'm looking for people who are different. Ordinary people can't stop them. They're too powerful." he said.
"Well why? What's wrong with just calling the police?" i asked. It seemed so obvious.
"Ava, they are the police. It's how they work. They have people everywhere, so you don't know who to trust. If they take London, they take the whole country."
After half an hour, i believed his story. I didn't want to, but I did. I knew that I could help. Eventually after several hot chocolates I turne to him.
"I can help." i said.
"I know you can," he replied.
