He pulled her closer to him and reassured her: “All we can do is try to hang in there. We have to keep an eye on them until Father O’Sullivan and the detective find a way through this. We need to keep them safe from each other and the best way to do that is keep them immersed in their music. Whether it’s out here on stage or in the studio, when they are performing they are safe from each other and the world is safe from them.”
He watched her look at him, with her eyes glowing from the sparkle of the stage lights, when she declared: “We could just run. Get away from all of this. Go somewhere far away where we cannot be found by Best. Please Avery; let’s just go, right now.”
The chaos of the music and the crowd swirled around them while he held her close and looked deep into her eyes before he answered: “You know we cannot do that. We cannot leave them. We are their only hope until the others get here. We will be safe till the end of the European Tour at least. Best needs the both of us to keep this thing going and only we can ensure that it does so we are safe for now. Trust me sweetheart, we will be okay and somehow we must trust that Father O’Sullivan will find a way to defeat Best and end this horror and set these kids free. We have to believe in that.”
She squeezed him back and said, “You’re right. Let’s enjoy the show and not talk about Best anymore tonight, okay?”
