Among the Hidden Chapter 26 Summary
- On a day when Luke knows his dad will be out in the fields all day, Luke makes a bold move to sneak over to Jen's house.
- He breaks in, disables the alarm (like Jen taught him), and immediately begins to call out for his friend.
- No response.
- It's impossible to search the entire mansion, so Luke heads straight to the computer room where he logs onto the secret shadow children chat room.
- Nervous and anxious and scared, Luke enters, "Where's Jen?".
- Just like the empty house, he gets no response.
- Obviously, Luke starts yelling at the computer which is a really bad move since it turns out the house isn't so empty after all and a voice behind him says to turn around slowly. Oh, and the mystery voice announces that it has a gun.
