“Now turn it facing toward the portal,” he whispered.
I did as I was told. Huldra and the others made their escape down the hallway.
“What was that?” Pete asked as he stopped packing the small jars. He was the first one to see the gleam in Wolf’s eyes surrounded by his hulking fur covered frame, and then Hudra, who appear as a ghost, floated toward them.
“Ahhhh,” yelled the two thieves bumping into the table. The box of ceramics flew into the air and crashed one by one onto the hardwood floor. Their boss backed away and advanced toward me and Hobs as soon as we were noticed.
“I’ll get you for this,” he growled and took a step in our direction.
“Hurry back with me, Susan,” Hobs urged.
At first, I didn’t want to go back, but this big angry man was scaring me. I trotted back with Hobs, and when the door opened, I jumped in hoping those trolls wouldn’t be there. We didn’t see them and Nokken and Forsegrimmen were gone too.
“Help me pull this mirror in front of the door.”
“Where are you two,” Mr. Ahlberg yelled feeling his way in the darkened hallway.
Hobs was saying his funny words again. “Now just stand here. He won’t hurt you.”
“Are you sure?” I had noticed the door had closed leaving a transparent wall between us and our pursuer.
I did what I was told and closed my eyes.
Outside, the screaming two men ran down the four steps of stairs in the alley and found themselves in the center of my friends. One of them was my neighbors, police officer, Jacob Pearson.©A.Nation2016
