SMASH! Elissa's face dropped as she looked at the broken window, her plain brown clothes were fixed to her body, panic took her as she ran inside. The Hawkins would not be amused or delighted that their new evacuee from London had already broken a window within 48hours of arriving. The noise of her feet echoed around the halls of the country house as she ran up the stairs,
“Elissa? What was that?” The voice of Mrs Hawkins shot up the stairs, Elissa reached the top and grabbed the handle of the door in front of her, she stood next to the door panting. Footsteps stopped at the top of the stairs and Elissa slowed her breath, the door slowly opened and she dared not make a sound,
“Elissa? Where is that girl?” the door shut with a thud and Elissa sighed, she put her head against the wall and slid to the floor.
