    “Well … I suppose it will only take a few minutes.” May fetches a coat and heads out into the night. You give her time to get clear, then rap on the bedroom door. Nothing comes but silence. Then feet pad across the floor and the door opens a few inches. Ruth’s eyes stare through the gap, glancing from left to right. You explain her mother has left the house and ask what has been bothering her. Those eyes flick up to stare at you.

    Decision Time:
    Option 1: Investigate behind the bookcase.
    Option 2: Close it and make your escape.

    You squint into the darkness behind the bookcase. It is a small alcove, big enough for one person, and has a hidden shelf on either side. You cannot make out any titles in this light.

    Decision Time:
    Option 1: Risk opening one of the cliffside windows a little.
    Option 2: Grab a few books and leave.

    Option 2. At this point it isn't worth the risk of being caught or worse. The books might have clues.

    May did say it will only take a few minutes, after all.

    You touch the books and a shock forces you to close your eyes in pain. You are back in front of Ruth's door. “It’s tomorrow,” she whispers. “Same as every year. They took my da. They’ll take you, if you let them.” The conviction in her eyes is chilling. You press her. Who is she talking about? “All of them. Every one. They’ve been watching since you got here. You’re marked.” Her voice is hollow. “One year, when I’m older … they’ll take me.” You hear footsteps approaching from outside. Ruth’s eyes flash and the bedroom door slams. You turn back to drying the dishes. May enters and removes her coat. “That man is a waste of time,” she hisses, and heads through to the bedroom.

    The familiar surroundings of your guest room are becoming constrictive. The neat bed, small wardrobe and dressing mirror have the feel of a prison cell about them. What are you still doing here in Emberhead? Your new life is elsewhere. You lie on the bed and stare at a small crack in the ceiling. You turn over the day’s events, thinking through the little details you spotted. You are certainly weary from the elevation and the fresh air. But do you still feel safe here?

    Decision Time:
    Option 1: Fall Asleep
    Option 2: Stay Awake

    Is staying awake really a good idea? We'll need our energy for tomorrow.

    That's what I thought at first but what if we get taken or something while sleeping?

    True. Okay, I'm agreed. We stay awake.

    Sleep presses down on you. You blink it back and sit up, trying to think through your situation. Everything in Emberhead seems to be working to stop you leaving. Perhaps the answer is to strike out at first light, to walk as far and as fast as you can. You can always return for your possessions, and if you lose them, you have nothing so precious that it could not be replaced. A tiny creak draws your attention to the other side of the room. Slowly, almost silently, the doorknob is turning.

    Decision Time:
    Option 1: Grab it and throw the door open.
    Option 2: Pretend to be asleep.
