Chapter 1, Part 2
Before she could check it out, she heard her Dad coming up the stairs. She jumped in the bed and pulled up the covers. Shortly, Dad poked his head in.
"Lights out, Jessica. Mom and I are going to bed." He left. Once Mom and Dad's light turned off, she got out of bed and started pushing the dresser. When she finally got it forward, what she saw was astonishing: A blue circular opening! It was high tech looking and about three feet in diameter. When she moved closer to it, The door shot open. Now she saw it was a tube... and it apparently led somewhere. She poked her head in for a better look. It pulled the rest of her in, too and she went faster than if it were just a slide. It had smooth walls, they were blue also. Using her bare feet, she finally stopped herself. Just ahead, she saw a door like the one that automatically opened in her room. She was glad she stopped herself. She heard voices behind the door talking.
" So Lightning says his tube has too many curves- "
" Oh yeah, I remember him saying that -"" He has a new complaint, his has a few forks and that apparently bugs him-" At that point, Jessica's grip slipped and she slid through the tube doorway and landed in a room with computers lining the walls. There were two people in it, two adults, a man and a woman, and they were both staring at her.
