The Other Half
Book By: Sarah Myers
The bell rings so me, Emily, Abby, and a few other friends head for our lockers. We are all, except for a few, part of a secret human protection agency, S.P.A. There are many things out there that humans need to be protected from like, yes the boogie monster, he's real. Anyway, I have my suspicions about Abby's mom, Mrs. Kasey is part of Heedium Exterminator Agency, H.E.A. Before I can open my locker I hear a buzz as Mrs. Kasey comes around the corner with a hand-held scanner type thing. "This one." She says coolly pointing at Emily. Before we could do anything she was being held by a man. "Take Her Away." Mrs. Kasey says turning to leave. "Noo!' I scream as I realize what was going on. "Run." Emily Says with edge in her voice. "I'll save you. I promise." I say quiet enough for her alone to hear. She nods. I blink back tears, grab Abby, and run.
