George looked over at the handbag. “We need to think of something.”
“No, you need to tell me why you still haven’t let Miss Levy go.” Jamal countered.
George looked away, he couldn’t say.
“George, kidnapping is serious, I know you’re not stupid…so what did Miss Levy see or what did she catch you doing.” Jamal smirked.
“Nothing.” George said at once.
“Yeah well nothing is probably tied up downstairs. A basement, seriously? You might as well be some crazy serial killer.” Jamal said edging towards the door that led to the basement.
George grabbed his hand.
“I said not to discuss anything!” Drew complained walking back into the room.
“We’re not discussing, we’re seeing. George is going to take us downstairs to see Miss Levy.” Jamal said decisively.
Drew’s eye lit up.
“You can’t see her, I don’t want –” George began.
“How’ve you kept her quiet all this time?” Jamal interrupted looking at George suspiciously.
George shifted from one foot to the other.
“O my God you haven’t killed her have you?” Drew said looking around fearfully.
Jamal’s eyes grew wide as he gasped and took a step back. “You’ve killed her haven’t you?!”
“No I haven’t, she’s very much alive!” George protested trying to keep his voice quiet. “Look, what happened was –”
“George let us see her right now!” Jamal demanded.
George sighed in resignation. “Alright fine, but don’t make any noise.”
Jamal and Drew exchanged looks as the trio quietly approached the basement door.
George turned the handle slowly.
They were plunged into darkness.Follow @Anzy_aa
