Green Sister 50

GS froze, her chest tightening. Lee? Missing? Other than her aunt, Lee was her only living relative. She reached up and grabbed Mark's wrists, pulling them down from her shoulders.

"Who is 'they'? Tell me what happened."

Mark took a deep shuddering breath.

"When you walked through the wall, we tried to follow," he said, reaching up and rubbing his nose. "For some reason, though, the wall was solid again. We searched the entire wall, looking for some switch or hollow spot or something. There was nothing... nothing at all that we could find. All we could do was stand here and wonder what was going on. Did you find Nancy the Black?"

"Huh? Oh, yeah," she said, realizing her experience with Nancy had dimmed with her return and the news about Lee. "Go on. What happened next?"

"I walked over there," he said, pointing to a column in the far corner, "to see if I could discover anything else and Lee walked back to the opening. That's when it happened."

"Mark! What happened?"

He looked away from her and down at the floor, all blood draining from his face. A deep breath and he looked at GS again.

"He jerked a couple of times, like he was being pulled. Then, he was pulled into the cavern, screaming. I started to go after him, but felt you pulling me back to this wall." He looked helplessly at GS. "I tried to help him, but I failed."

GS reached out and patted him on the arm. "We'll get him back. Let's head back. Maybe we'll find some trace of him on the way out."
