Chapter 8

Casey's POV

We stopped at Wendy's, 'Semrah' ordered my food, ordered whatever else the girls wanted and then she pulled into an empty parking lot space in the Wendy's parking lot.

"What's your name kid?" The girl in the passenger seat asked me.

"Why?" I challenged.

"We need to keep a record of our bodies. You know, inventory." Then she and Semrah laughed. My eyes widened. Were they serious?

"They're joking." The girl sitting next to me whispered. I nodded, hoping that she wasn't lying.

"I'm gonna get the food." Semrah said getting out of the car. The rest of us sat there in silence, barely acknowledging that she had left. After a few more seconds, "I gotta take a waz." The passenger girl said and then she left too. Maybe I could get answers out of the nice one.

"Do you think this is right?" I asked the girl next to me as soon as the other one left.

"It doesn't matter." She answered quickly.

"To me it does." I reasoned with her.

Her head whirled to face mine and she glared at me. "You might have a perfect life, but there are others out there who aren't so lucky!" She snapped.

"But that isn't my fault. That isn't right either, but I don't have control over that." I said gently.

"Don't give me that bullshit. You couldn't care less if I rot in hell or something, let alone be abandon in the streets." She gave me a harsh, cold glare before turning back to the window.

"Wait, what do you mean?" I asked her.

"Your little girlfriend of yours took something from me a few years ago." She replied in a tone that usually meant, end of discussion.

Is she on her period? Geez, I thought she was nice. Or at least have a nice conversation with me. But why did she keep glaring at me, and basically blaming me for her life issues? I don't even know. I mean, sure her parents 'abandon her on the streets' and she has no other family but did she have to take it out on me? But more importantly, what did Sammy have to do with this?

The other girls came back and they passed out the food. Well, at least they weren't cold heartless kidnappers who didn't feed their victims.

Sammy's POV

Lena came to visit me before I left to wherever Witness Protection people go. Apparently it's really top secret, and 'Men in Black' have to pick up me and my friends, plus Grams and Hudson.

"Sammy, problem." She said as soon as she walked in. Tippy was with her and her eyes were puffy.

"What happened Tippy?" I asked reaching down to pick her up. She started crying.

"See, that's the problem." Lena said sitting down on my hospital bed. I picked up Tippy, and sat down with her in my lap, she continued to cry.

"What do you mean?" I asked Lena.

"She's really wigged out about your.. friend. She really wants to tell, but I told her that you didn't want her to get into trouble." Lena explained.

"Tippy, it's okay. We'll find him." I said soothingly.

After a moment of crying she sputtered out some words. "But.. I know.. where he's... go-going." She said.

I sighed. I really wanted to know where he was going or at least where he's supposed to be headed but I didn't want to risk Tippy's life. Look at what happened to Casey!

"I know that you want me to find him but your life could be at stake." I tried to reason. Tippy shook her head stubbornly and pulled a piece of paper out of her pocket. She thrust it into my hands then jumped up and ran out of the room.

"I'd better go catch her." Lena said then gave me a small smile and she too left the room.

I was almost afraid to open the note. What would it say?

Well maybe you should open it.

Oh shut up!

Well then.

Stupid conscious.

I opened the note very slowly and read what it said:

Kayla Rosetta

Age: almost seventeen.

Born: Mexico

Lifestyle: gang member. Abandoned almost two years ago.

What the heck? What was I supposed to do with this? I sighed and stuffed the note into my back pocket.

A/N: Okay, what do you think? Are Casey and Sammy's POV's related in a way? Do you think Sammy will ever realize what the note means?

Also, there will be a sequel to this. It's called What happened to Casey? Any guesses on what's gonna happen? But of course I have to finish this story first.
