Chapter 3: Missing
"Look, she can't have gone far" comforted Zanna as Liz sat crying on Lucy's bed.
"I doubt that' said David quietly. Zanna glared at him "what it's the truth" he mouthed. Liz sobbed a little louder.
"Just catch that thing and put it outside, would you, before Lexi sees!" said Zanna motioning towards the squirrel. Sighing David turned and walked forwards. The squirrel looked at him "chug" it said. "Hrr" said David and to Zanna's surprise the squirrel, which they had been trying to catch for a full five minutes, jumped straight into David's out-stretched hand. He turned round, took two steps towards the door, then stops. Alexa was stood in the doorway "where's Lucy?" she asked then she noticed the squirrel.
"Oh" she said "can I play with it?" Zanna shot David an "I told you so!" look but David wasn't looking at her or Alexa. He was looking the squirrel, the squirrel was looking at him, and the squirrel was GLOWING!
"Mummy, why's the squirrel purple?" asked Alexa. Zanna looked at her and said "it's not purple, it's violet!" And a shiver seemed to roll around the room, because they all new what violet means. It meant that the Ix were still at large, and they had taken Lucy and, Unknown at the minute, G'reth.
