Seeds Chapter 16 Page 14

Dylan: Hello?

Steve drops his shoulders and sighs before banging on the door loudly, then raises his hands to suggest he say it louder. Dylan smiles and yells at the door: HELLLLOOOO! as loud as he can.

Steve gives him a thumbs up as he presses his ear against the cold surface again. His eyes flick around as he tries to listen for any signs of movement or talking.

But nothing. Just the echoes from their attempts to communicate, and then as it dies away - total silence.

He didn’t know why they wouldn’t answer after opening the door and points to Dylan to take the handgun back out. The boy excitedly complies and stands with his back to the wall again, ready to breach the enemy fortress.
