I bit my lip as I watched @Unknown_Northlance disappear inside the dark building before us. As much as I wanted to join him, to see Emman again and discover the fate of my friend, I knew it was best to wait.
What if he needs my help? I thought as I stared after him, What if he's overtaken in there?
Trust, Miss A whispered.
I sighed irritably and led the other girls back to the ship. My mind still spinning with inconsolable doubts.

I bit my lip again, a pang of guilt rising in my chest.
"Why are we here?" Peri asked, snapping me back to reality, "Shouldn't we be in there with him?"
"No," I replied, "he can handle this on this own."
