Watch Your Step

In front of them was nothing more than a wall that held two wall candle sconces on it. She wanted to ask if this was his idea of a joke until he had pushed a panel from the wall away revealing a long dark and narrow set of stairs.

“Watch your step.” He said as they descended down the cold concrete steps. The stairs led to the back exit of the warehouse the same exit she had found earlier. In a matter of seconds they were outside in the chilling night air unnoticed by anyone.

There was only one thing that still sat in the back of her mind and now was the time she realized. She had to know. Clearing her throat she asked “The guy that stabbed you was he there tonight?”

“Yes.” He said not stopping. Allie cringed at that thought as she followed Matt into the dark cold night.
