We Run Around in the Dark at Night
Daisy rolled out of bed after yet another sleepless night. Ever since the crash it seemed like every other day something crazy happened to keep her from her sleep.
She managed to find herself at the hall half an hour later and an entire hour before wakeup where to her surprise she found Aria and Harry already waiting for her, both deep in conversation. Those two definitely learned something yesterday.
"Looks like we're busy plotting some nefarious deeds?" said Daisy, walking up to them.
"Hi Daisy," said Harry," quickly turning around. His voice dropped to a whisper, “You are absolutely not going to believe what mom told us yesterday."
"Tell me now," demanded Daisy.
"Let's get to the location first. It's safer there once we get inside the ship," said Aria, even as Harry opened his mouth to reply.
"Alright," said Daisy, nodding reluctantly. These two are going to give me a heart attack from all the suspense one day.
The trio made their way towards the gate, the hallways now familiar. It was starting to become routine to be working all day now which was both fun and terrifying at the same time. On one hand, it was becoming easier to work for extended periods of time but on the other hand it was scary how easily they were getting used to it.
Once they were safely inside the ship and away from prying eyes and ears, Daisy turned to the two siblings, mouth set and ready to demand answers.
"Wow you actually look pretty scary right now," said Harry.
"Well that's the general idea behind this look. Don’t look so surprised," said Daisy, mock glaring at them.
"Jeez...didn't we tell you that we will let you know as soon as we got here," said Harry, raising his hands.
"Yes you did. I just wanted to make sure. Now come on. Don't keep dragging things out."
'I wasn't dragging things out," said Harry.
"You saying that you are not dragging things out is actually dragging things out," pointed out Aria.
"Exactly," said Daisy.
"Ohh right. Sorry Daisy. I didn't mean to keep you waiting," he said and saw Daisy begin to frown," right, so what we have to say is that our mom got a report on the door by a professional and it is..." He paused for a couple of seconds. "…Damaged."
Daisy could barely stop herself from whooping in joy. Oh My God! This might actually be it. We might actually be free.
"Wow that is just...just…just…freaking amazing. It’s just...I can't even process this right now," she said," oh I just want to break into a dance right about now."
"That's exactly what I wanted to do," said Harry.
"And it’s exactly what both of you are not going to do right now," said Aria, " besides we haven't even finished telling Daisy all the news yet."
"Right. Dancing would not be very discreet," said Harry," oh right can you tell her or should I?"
"One of you better tell me in the next five seconds if you know what's good for you," said Daisy, voicing raising just a little. These two really need to learn to avoid beating around the bush.
"Right so we are sort of going to be getting a low key secret mission of sorts," said Aria, then held up her hand as Daisy opened her mouth to ask questions," wait I'm getting to it."
Daisy huffed. She acts exactly like mom.
"So they’re planning on assembling some volunteers to escape and also to brainstorm on a few ideas with said volunteers. Tonight we have to help get the word out to a certain group so that everyone knows about it to be able to volunteer. It's all already been planned out, this time they’re not leaving anything to chance and working as fast as possible...I'll let you know exactly where we'll be going later tonight."
"You two always find something to keep me in suspense don't you?" asked Daisy, trying to frown despite the large smile currently on her face from the news.
"Well somethings have to be said at the proper times. And we also have a lot of work to get done," said Aria.
