Hello! Without further ado, I’m not going to say anything except; here is Return to Riverside part 2, which is called Forbidden Friendship.
Cody was running at full speed, which was pretty fast. Jay and I were close(ish) behind. “Where exactly are we going?” I asked.
Cody stopped. “Oh, sorry. Never really made that clear, did I?”
“No. No, not at all. Actually, sort of…”
“Yeah, well, whatever. We’re just trying to get to Riverside and bring the scrolls to that Jade person.” Cody told me.
“Who’s Jade?” Jay interrupted, “not to be confused with Jay, my name,” and then he chuckled.
“Oh. Well, I’m actually not sure. Jade Bart, no, Kart? HART! That’s it! Jade Hart. She lives back in Riverside.”
“Is she like, old?” I asked.
“No, she’s about our age.”
“Well, why does she want the scrolls?” Jay questioned.
“I don’t know, Jay. I don’t know.”
The boys continued to argue over the topic of Jade Hart, but I, the one carrying the scrolls, walked ahead.
“BOYS?” I called eventually. I’d been walking, in a blanket of silence, for around 20 minutes. No answer. “Boys?”
I turned around. They weren’t there. They were following me a little bit ago…
I didn’t recognize the voice. Too young to be Dr. Bradley, and too feminine to be Jay or Cody. “Hi?” I asked.
“My name is...Audrey, I guess,” she began.
A girl who couldn’t be sure of her own name, yet knew mine, couldn’t be trusted.
“Do you know where the boys—I mean Jay and Cody—are?” I inquired.
“Don’t ask me. I’m not supposed to talk to outsiders. You shouldn’t be here,” Audrey sounded strict, “but I can help you. Follow me.”
I followed Audrey, who brought me to a shack in the forest. “C’mon. Sarah’s here.”
“Sarah is...you’ll see.”
Whoever Sarah was grabbed me tightly by the shoulders as soon as I entered the shack. “Whoa!” I exclaimed. “Way to welcome a guest?”
“Guest?” Sarah seemed confused. “Don’t you mean…” the rest of it was muffled, for my head was shoved in a barrel of water.
Much later, I pushed up, because Sarah’s hand was not that strong. Surprised I hadn’t choked, I yelled. “What are you doing?” I asked. “And how long was I under there? Seemed like 2 minutes!”
“It was 15. Audrey, you were right. She’s immortal like the other two. Put her with the others.”
Welllll? Your questions:
Who are Audrey and Sarah? Do you trust them?
Who are “The Others”? More immortals or the boys or both? It can be both…
Why does “Jade” want the scrolls?
Where is Hannah now, and why is she considered an outsider?
Where are the boys?
