Norah’s eyes widened, “no, no no no,” she said in a panic, getting up in a hurry. “How much time do we have? Someone wake Jaime up!” She said, heart racing.

"Basically none. We need to go now, but if we're going to get anywhere I need you to calm down," he said to her, rather harshly. "Just get him and lets go, quickly."

Norah nodded, taking in deep breaths to calm down. She took off down the hall and burst into jaimes room, “get up now!” She insisted, shaking his shoulder roughly when he just grunted. “What...” he moaned unhappily. She hit him with a pillow and brought his wheelchair to the side of the bed, “they’re coming! Now get up!” She told him, sighing in relief when he finally came to his senses and scrambled to get out of bed and into the chair, “who is coming? My father? Wolves?” He asked groggily as she pushed him out of the room. “Bears” she said simply, voice shaking terribly

Elijah had shuffled the others out to the car and was waiting on Norah and Jaime, clearly anxious. Once he saw they were coming, he went out and got into the driver's seat.

Norah did her best to help Jaime into the car, which between his broke legs and her broken hand was an ordeal. She didn’t care about pain in that moment, she just needed to get out of there before it was too late. She jumped into the front passenger seat and looked m over at Elijah, eyes eyes filled with fear. “Go!”

"I am, I am!" Elijah said as he started the car and pulled away from the house. He headed toward the highway, opposite of the city and out of the state.

Norah looked out the window, frowning as they turned towards the highway, “where are we going?” She asked, realizing they were heading away from the city. She had always thought about leaving but had always been too scared to actually do it.

"We can't stay there," Elijah said, looking over at her. "We'll need to ditch the car eventually as well."

Norah blinked away tears and looked back at him; she was so tired of running and hiding. "Great, so now we have Wolves and Bears after us," she said, sounding frustrated and scared.

Sadie gripped the seat in a vice grip, eyes wide. “What the hell happened?” She snapped. “This is insane.”

"We just...we can't trust anyone, right now. Rob risked a lot just to warn us, but my bo- former boss has put out a hit on me," Elijah explained, his knuckles tightening. "I guess his memory wiping didn't do what he wanted, but he's hiding something big."

Norah glanced to the side at Elijah, her brow drawn down in concern. Their situation seemed quite hopeless, with two morally corrupt gang leaders after them and no where safe to go. "We will just have to uncovered whatever it is you discovered and use it against him," Norah said.
