Cursing under her breath, Aurelia stomped over to the corridor, intending to enter the building there, but as she gained a foothold on the windowsill with her boot, she noticed some movement out of the corner of her eye. The motion came from a window located at ground level on the section to her left. A railing surrounded the window, which allowed light to spill into the hospital’s basement. Aura paused and her eyes focused on the spot. Nothing stirred, but she felt a tingle run up her spine.
Hesitating, she turned and walked toward the other window. When she was halfway across the courtyard, she thought she saw a flash of light in the basement through the pealing window frame. “Hah!” Aurelia cried. “There you are, bastards!” She rushed over and used the railing to swing down into the window sill. A thick grease came off on her hands, and she frowned.
“Gross,” Aurelia said. She wiped her hands on some old, dried leaves and peered through the window into the basement of the hospital. “Hello?” she yelled. The echo of her own voice was the only reply. She wrinkled her brow and slid, feet first, through the window. It was about a yard drop to the floor. Landing without any difficulty, she dug into the pocket of her hooded sweatshirt and produced a small flashlight.
