Junior Kamryn Schultz, starts the second half of her serialized book titled Redemption. Chapters will be revealed every two weeks. Make sure to check back twice a month and leave comments on what you think about it. If you missed the fourteenth chapter, read Berchtesgaden. “OK, don’t panic. There has to be another way out of here.” I searched the sides of the cave trying to find a possible exit. I pressed against the walls for hidden triggers or secret openings. Nothing. And just as I directed not to, Indi started freaking out. She hit another wall with her fists, each time doing more damage to her hands.

The boat docked in Bremerhaven, Germany a couple days after we had taken off. Indiana and I gathered the little things we owned and made our way to find a cab. Tomas gave his goodbyes and promised Indi he would be here if we needed anything else. I could tell by the look on both their faces they needed each other more than anything.

I have never seen a family portrait in any of the five houses that my family has stayed, for 18 years since my birth, there have never been one. Mother said that we don’t have this kind of family tradition, and every time she tried to put her lens toward me, I just pushed her away. Now, when I look at those scattered old pictures that mother texted me, I could not even piece together a single moment of my childhood.

If you missed the twelfth chapter, read The Project. “Why is my backpack so heavy?” I slouched over from the painful weight on my back. Trying to adjust the straps was no use since they pinched my shoulders anyway they sat. The gear given to us in the lab were standard traveling items; food and water, clothes, and money for travels. There were also ropes, pickaxes, and a utility belt filled with gadgets I wasn’t allowed to look at until later. The gear weighed a couple pounds more than I expected, and the effort of lugging it around was killing me.

I was singing along with my Swiss friend Brian’s Ukulele on the beach of Waikiki, waves lapping on the shoreline orchestrated and embellished my singing melodiously. The sun had faded from the horizon to another side of the Pacific Ocean, spilling twilight out, illuminating the broken clouds into purple and gold. The rest of the clouds were blue and stretched across the endless canopy of the sky.Purple was the sky fire; gold was the dusk, which backgrounded the magic of the cosmos. Our song ended. We laughed to appreciate this gorgeous memory that we shared, thinking that we would look back at this very moment years later. I cheered for us.

I bit my lip trying to ignore the pain. Slapping someone hurt, but receiving the blow probably caused even more pain. Kevin stood in front of me, his left cheek rosier than usual, stunned at my reaction.

Even with the bag still covering my head, the jolting and moving back and forth told me that I was in some sort of vehicle, and moving fast.

The show ends and the opera actors come up to stage, step forward and take a bow. The finely dressed audience stands up while their claps reverberate inside the hall adorned with those golden Renaissance-era decorations. The giant chandelier, hand-carved reliefs and innumerable oil paintings down each side wall diffuse the atmosphere filling Her Majesty’s Theatre in downtown London.
