ISLAND IN THE SAND

Part X

 

Star and Jameson stepped carefully away from the end of the plank, slightly distancing themselves from one another. Slowly, they circled the power plant until they could see the tunnel entrance in the distance. They moved together toward the entrance without saying anything.  The two boys, crouched down about twenty yards away, were stationed on each side of the tunnel entrance. The boys had arrows nocked into place, with bows drawn partially back. As Star and Jameson approached, the boys adjusted their weapons, drawing their strings fully back, letting the tips of the arrows track the pair’s progress.
