Once the blonde was far from the yard She turned to a small opening between to buildings Annie slipped through with little difficult. She approached a dirty green curtain that hanged off to the left by two nails, Her thin hands gripped it, pulling it off to her side as she walked into the hole and covered the entrance with it.
Connie was silent as he approached the curtain that Annie was supposedly behind, and listened carefully, his ears pricking up as he tried to hear her.
Everything fell into a soundless void till the sound of foot steps tapped into hard brick floor. A quick fist burst through the curtains gripping Connie’s jacket pulling him in the dark hole.
Connie Springer yelped as Annie yanked him in after her, his eyes wide with terror as she pulled. This was not the kind of adventure he was expecting. Why on earth would he even wish for this adventure?
She held the boy over her head for a moment before launching him into the wall. “Connie?” Annie tilted her head as she stepped over to him, towering above the boy grabbing the back of his jacket.
Connie’s back slammed into the wall and he slid down with a groan, falling over so he was lying down. “Yep… that’s me. You didn’t have to throw me to kingdom come, you know…”
Annie thumped him in the head. “I know. Now tell me you shaved monkey why did you follow me?”
He winced as she thumped him, rubbing the crown of his head and glaring coldly at her, “Maria mother of Rose…” he grumbled, realizing her beatings would leave lumps on him. “I wanted to see what the Ice Queen did when she snuck away from lessons. Is that a good enough answer *your highness*?”
"Yes." She said patting his head in a rather aggressive way, her eyes jumped back to the entryway and back to him. "Did anyone follow you?" Annie voice was calm but still filled with a hint of anger.
"I doubt anyone would have bothered," he says sourly, standing up, prepared for almost anything. Almost.
