That’s good “ Lennon said hanging up the phone. Rachel sighed and ran downstairs “Hey mom..oh..wait...she’s not here anymore..” Rachel felt like the dumbest person in the world.

They both looked shocked “NOW!” Rachel grabbed Lennon’s hand and grabbed all the things they think they’d need and climbed out to the roof
