Tanya was trapped in a labyrinth.

She was staring at the endless rows of storage units, not knowing where to go. but she only knew one thing: she had to get out before they found her.

But where was she going to go? She had no idea of where she was or how she got to where she was. But she knew that no matter what, she had to escape.

Tanya stared at a huge folder in the corner of the storage unit where she was held. The folder contained files on her and her friends Stuart Greer, Mara Llewellyn, Irene Haughton, and Pearl Tanner. The files were the kids’ birth certificates, school records, and other things that other people shouldn’t know about.

With that, Tanya grabbed the folder and ran down the hall, not looking back. The building was dark, but she didn’t care. She ran in any direction her feet took her, knowing that one wrong turn could mean that not only would her life be destroyed, but the lives of her friends were in jeopardy. She couldn’t take that risk.

Just as she made another turn down another corridor, a huge light flashed. Someone was coming into the place. Tanya tensed, hoping that that person wouldn’t see her. The last thing she needed was to be attacked by another person, especially by a person who didn’t like her. She was not going to be another victim of someone’s hate.

Luckily for her, the person walked by without even noticing her. But she wasn’t out of danger yet. Tanya stared down the hall where the person came and noticed that the door to the storage building was open. Finally, she was free.

Or was she?
