Chapter Nine

I sat on the floor. It's too quiet. Seeing as I have absolutly no one to talk to. At all. The only person I've even seen in eight and a half days was the maid, and she is only here for about five minutes, once a day, when she brings fresh sheets for the bed, clothes and food for the day. I'm so bored. There is nothing on tv, and I only have six channels to choose from anyway. I wish something, anything, would happen so I don't have to blindly sit here. Now I'm annoied. I'm beyond annoied, they left me locked in an almost empty room for almost nine days, without telling me nearly enough about what's going on, other than about my Papa, Chronos and Ash. I leaned back against the wall, pulling my knees close to my chest. I rested my head against my knees. I have to get out of here. If I stay here I'll go insane, not to mention that they still might kill me. The fact that they're taking so long to decide if they want me alive or not is probably not a good sign for me. I need to leave. But how am I supposed to do that? There's no windows. I can't fit through the vents. The door is always locked. The door is locked...?

It may be locked most of the time, but not when the maid comes in first thing in the morning. When the maid comes in, she opens the door and leaves it open while she changes sheets, brings fresh clothes and food for the day. She brings everything in a cart, with food for the day on the top and everything else, I guess on the bottom. In the morning she puts breakfast on the side table and the other food in the cupbard, then she takes sheets from the bottom part of the cart. I can't tell exactly what's there because there's a cover over the cart that has a small opening on the side.

That's it! That's how I can get out! If I wait until she changes the sheets, when she isn't looking I'll hide in the bottom part of the cart. But will she notice I'm gone? Maybe not, if I close the bathroom door once she starts changing the sheets.

Yes, that's exactly what I'll do. Tomarrow morning I'll put my plan into action. I stood up, feeling much more confident now. shuffling through the pockets of my old clothes, I quickly found what I was looking for. I pulled out the small black wallet I stole from a random person I passed on the street, just a day or two before I met Ash. I stuffed the wallet into my pocket along with a couple of candy bars left over from lunch. I should get some sleep, who knows when I'll be able to sleep next.
