The Cat was waiting for them. He took the egg without a word, held it up in the light and started to inspect it.
Holly was the first one to speak up. “Did we pass your test?”
“Check your pockets,” he muttered, not looking away from the egg.
Felicia and Holly looked through their pockets. Felicia’s hand got a little nick by the fingers. She grabbed a hold of whatever it was in her pocket.
It was a card with the symbol of a cat and co-ordinates at the bottom.
Felicia and Holly looked at each other, excitement plastered all over their faces. The hugged tightly before letting go.
“Thank you,” Holly said.
But the Cat had already disappeared.
She took Holly’s number and tucked away the outfit at a secret place at Cobblestone Alley before making her way back home. Holly and Felicia promised each other that they’d call each other once they cracked the co-ordinates. Just to make sure Selina didn’t find anything she tucked the card alongside her outfit so that Selina wouldn’t catch wind of it when she was snooping around.
She opened the door to the apartment, making sure it didn’t creak and her footsteps didn’t make any sounds. As she navigated through the dark hallways she prayed Selina was fast asleep or out working.
She opened the door to her to her room when…
“Kitten,” said a voice that made her heart stop and her spine tingle. “Where have you been?”
The corridor light went on and Selina was by her room door with a huge smile on her face. A smile that told Felicia, Selina wasn’t happy to see her at all.
