Another Meeting and an Actual Plan
The next morning was a strange one for Aria. She was going to be participating in a meeting that would be all about the new escape plan. She'd long since declared to herself this was impossible and somehow she found herself feeling a lot more enthusiasm than she thought she'd had. It didn't change her opinion that it was never going to work out, but still she found herself somewhat looking forward to the meeting.
She checked the time. There was still half an hour until Wake Up. A bit earlier than her usual time. She quickly go ready for the day as she reflected on the magnitude of what was about to happen that night. It was the kind of thing that everyone had dreamed about but this was getting a lot closer to the real deal. Harry is going to be unbearable today and it’s not like Daisy is ever going to side with me. Smiling to herself as she remembered the ridiculous maneuver he'd pulled yesterday, she headed towards his room. Her first instinct that day had been to yell at him for acting that rashly but she was proud that he'd thought on his feet like that even when she, the one who was supposed to be in charge of that, mission stood frozen in place.
Aria walked into Harry's room to find him already awake and ready for the day. That wasn’t the only unusual thing however, as he also appeared to be deep in thought as he sat on the bed, staring off into space. Aria made her way over to him and sat down next to him.
"Penny for your thoughts?" she asked, keeping her voice low so that she didn't accidentally startle him.
"Oh morning sis...just thinking about stuff you know," he said, giving her a smile.
"The meeting tonight?" she asked," raising her eyebrows. He nodded.
"It'll go fine," she said, putting a reassuring arm on his shoulder," we're going to do what you've always dreamed of."
"Do you really believe that?" he asked.
"Well..," she replied, trailing off," look I'll be honest, I don't think I'll ever believe that we can get away until the day that we actually find ourselves outside this hellhole but with all the effort that mom put and the messages that we delivered ourselves, I think this meeting is going to be a success. That much I can believe."
"Well at least I'm glad that you're not an impostor," said Harry," Ariana Kane saying that she believes in us being able to escape would be the stuff of legend."
Aria smiled apologetically.
"Shall we get going then?" she asked. Harry nodded, getting up from the bed. The two siblings headed out to the hall.
It was a day unlike most. The people in the hall all seemed happier somehow, it wasn’t really that were more smiles or anything physically noticeable. There was some sort of unconscious extra energy that seemed to permeate the entire room making the place feel brighter somehow.
Aria located Daisy, who was early once again. That was one definite plus of all the plans centered around escape. Both Harry and Daisy were actually being early for a change.
