Mission: To The Rescue
"I'm gonna find you."
Banks crept around her quarters, making a scene of looking behind pillows and under tables. As she got closer to Keiran she could hear him giggling. She knew where he was, he aways hid in the same place but she enjoyed faking the hunt because he found it so funny. Finally she stood next to his hiding place.
"Well, I guess you win, I can't find you."
"I right here," he said as he climbed out of his spot.
"Now I know I checked there, how did you hide?"
"I wish I knew how to do that, it'd make my job easier," she said.
"Do you want to hide and I'll find you?"
She nodded. "Close your eyes and count to ten."
He did as she said and she found a spot in her bedroom closet. She could hear him looking around until he entered the room. With a sigh he sounded frustrated.
"I can't find you....we'll NEVER find you."
Her eyes snapped open and the familiar shuttle greeted her. His tone, so sure and final still rang in her ears. She knew not to make a scene in front of the others so she just laid there in silence, praying not to dream again that night.
