CHAPTER 7

Chute Libre

Meg jumped as a voice hissed from behind her, "Don't turn around. The two of you are in great danger. Do not scream."

Meg grasped Christine's arm in a death-grip, blue eyes wide.

"Who..." Christine didn't finish, the air grate beneath their feet gave way and the two friends were free falling.
