Alora Funk- The Discovery- Book 2 As the police car pulled away from the Hearts, I peered through the back window, watching London, Mandy, and Paul wave good bye to me from the porch. The high pitch sirens pounded against my ears, blaring its repetitive noise. Red and blue lights flashed their obnoxious stimulus, ricocheting within the chambers of my skull, bouncing off my brain tissue and causing my head to throb. I looked at my so called friends. My love for them instantly turned bitter. The combination of noise, light, and disappointment overwhelmed me. I closed my eyes for the rest of the ride. They had betrayed me. I had counted on them for help, yet there they stood sending me to my death. Why had Mandy and London called the police? My fingers tingled as a new reality hit me. I was on my own. I had no one.
