Chapter 14 – Part 9


Mark could feel anger rising up from his chest, but he tried to keep his feelings in check. This was not the time for him to act on feelings.

“I need to know what you’ve done to her,” he demanded, hoping his voice sounded steady.

His throat tightened. “What exactly do you want?”

“It’s obvious, isn’t it?” she said irritably. “Show us the treasure room and she’ll be yours. It’s a good bargain.”

Mark was too terrified to speak. He had a sick feeling that he might not be able to save Diane.
