An Advent Tale XIV

Kati and Aiden came to their senses only to realize they were alone. The other three were gone, and even if Kati knew how to get back to their starting point, no one was there either. Their friends must be running around at random somewhere and it would be impossible to find them.

“They should be able to find their way out,” Kati said. “Eventually.”

“I guess,” Aiden said. “No cell phone reception down here either. So what do we do now?”

“What we were going to do in the first place,” Kati decided. “My boss lives down here, and she knows the tunnels like her own back pocket. I need to tell her what I found out, and maybe she’ll send out someone to find the others.”

“Very well,” Aiden said. “Lead the way, and if something else comes dropping down from the sky, let’s punch it instead of running. Seems like a better idea.”

“You punch it,” Kati said.

The odd pair walked on through the tunnels and entered an area where tunnel walls were exchanged for bricks and a number of doors appeared on each side. Aiden figured people lived here, mostly because some of them were walking around outside.

Kati went up to a door and knocked on it. “Boss,” she called. “I’m back!”
