Forbidden Child chapter 15Forbidden Child Chapter 15: Hijiacking the Ship
We all scrambled around looking for hiding places. Derek and I hid in between some crates, Pynzlee and Austin ducked behind some barrels, and Dana and Hayden hid underneath some mail bags.
After the voices of the sailors had come and gone, I signaled that the coast was clear.
"How'd they find us?" Hayden asked, exasperated.
"It must have been Dana's Iris Message." Derek explained, scowling at Dana.
"Would you have happened to tell Chiron that we were in Florida?" I inquired, putting my hands on my hips.
"It might've come up." she replied, looking sheepish.
"Hopefully we'll set sail before they wise up and start searching the ships for us." Austin pointed out.
"We can't wait that long." Pynzlee stated. "We need to get this ship away from the dock now."
I raised an eyebrow. "What did you have in mind Pynz?"
Pynzlee smirked slightly. "Derek, grab some rope. Hayden, find some duct tape. I have a plan."

Upon waking up, I told everyone to pack up their sleeping bags immediately. "We need to get a move on." I said "Now that the word is out, it won't be long before they're on our trail."
"Yeah." Austin snorted "Thanks to Dana."
"Shut up." She angrily replied.
"Spare me the fight." I said, rolling my eyes "Just hurry up and pack."

After numerous hours of walking, we stopped to rest in a humid swampy area. Sitting down we all took a much needed drink from our canteens.
"It's official." Austin sighed "I hate nature."
"You're telling me." Hayden groaned, trying to scratch the middle of his back 'I've got mosquito bites in places I can't even reach."
"Would anyone happen to have any itch ointment?" Pynzlee asked, scratching her arms.
"Are we any closer t

The trip to Brunswick, Georgia took another two days, and by then we had already run out of food. After getting off the bus we stopped at diner and had our first quality meal in days.
Sitting at a booth in the far corner of the restaurant, we talked about the journey ahead.
"We're going to have to take another boat to get from Florida to South America." Dana pointed out, taking a bite of her cheeseburger.
"But where are we going to get enough money to buy the tickets?" Hayden asked, swallowing a bit of corn-dog "We've used nearly all of our cash."
Before anyone could come up with an answer, the waitress came over to collect the bill.
"That'll be $35.59." she said.
"Well, uh you see Miss we don't exactly have-"Dana started.
I reached in my pocket and pulled out a shiny platinum debit card before she could finish.
"We'll be paying with this." I told her.
The waitress nodded and walked over to the register to swipe my card.
"Where'd you get tha
