Writing a lot on Chapter 4 right now, about to close it, when we thought you awesome fans might like a little snippet. A quote. An extract.
Sooo, here it is. 😀
“Give me the grappling hook,” the canine whispered.
“I thought you had it!” Zack replied, clenching his teeth.
“I do have it, just messing with ya.”
“Aidan, that’s not funny! You told me to trust you and yet here we are!”
“And you said you will trust me all the way. Now shush and help me get this thing on the roof!”
Their second attempt was successful as the grappling hook clinked while latching itself to the roof’s inner edge. Aidan pulled once or twice to make sure it would hold him and up he went. Step by step, he climbed the wall adjacent to a set of windows: a large one at the bottom and a smaller one at the top.
Zack started to look worried as he spotted an AG patrolling the streets much too close for their comfort. He turned to Aidan who was already looking at his scared assistant while hanging from the rope. Lucky for them, a passing vehicle attracted the AGs attention. The motor sound was just loud enough for Aidan to seize the chance and kick the small stained-glass window. CRACK! The feline cringed but nofur heard anything.
Good shoes, worth every coin, Aidan thought and with a little effort, maybe a bit more than he expected, the canine climbed through the window, pulling the rope after him.
His feet hit the floor with an echoing THUMP! as glass crackled under his weight. He took a few steps only to remember that he forgot something.
“Ah, horsetails!” he grumbled as he rushed towards the large window and opened it. Before he could call for him, Zack was already rushing inside like a startled kitten.
“What took you so long?!” the feline questioned him with a scared expression on his face and fur all bristly. “I got scared half to death. Twice!”
“Then praise the heavens and hold the lantern. We’ve got work to do.”
