Note: The title of this chapter changed due to rewrites and it sounding cooler. xD
Chapter 23: The Guilty and The Innocent
The stranger outside was growing more and more desperate to get in now. They pounded at the glass ferociously shaking the windows before us. I squinted through the darkness to see if I could make out our visitor, but a heavy fog had developed outside amongst the darkness of the night. It added to the eeriness of our situation. Vince even appeared to be a bit rattled. He rose to his feet slowly and grabbed his machete. I carefully lifted myself up grabbing the side of the table next to us. He looked back at me in disapproval and raised his hand for me to stop, but I couldn’t just sit there.
As he drew closer to the door, I quietly raised to my feet, grabbed my katana, and snuck up behind him limping slightly.
He inhaled and exhaled as he twisted the lock on the door. He cut his eye at me acknowledging my presence. Then he opened it.
