Chapter 4 If You Want It, Steal It /////////////// Everyone is sitting around a table as they figure out how they are going to escape. Samuel gets up to go work on the stairway as a sudden thought struck him. \"If there are five guards surrouding us then that means there are probably only three of them around that are actually watching us right now, the other two could be taking breaks \" says Samuel. \"The Viotrisions call it \"shifts\". It's a strategy that my father created. When night comes, the soldier who has been guarding the longest can take a break until he or she is rested and then the next day, they reverse\" says Naru. \"That makes sense but if there are three of them that are working during the night, then how would that make it easier to escape? Cortez asks. \"Cortez does have a point but we would have less visibillity if we went at night which would really help us with not getting noticed\" replies Naru. \"Pretty soon, Suian is going to try to take Aria and you if we don't get off of this island\" says Samuel. \"Knowing Suian that's probably what he's planning right now\"says Naru. The next day, Samuel gets up and leaves. \"Where are you going?\" Aria asks.  \"I have to go work on the stairway\" says Samuel as he heads outside. As Samuel begins working he sees about 20 guards walking towasrds thier way. Samuel quitely rushes back inside. \"There's guards here\" says Samuel. \"WHAT already?\" says Naru. \"What the hell are they doing here? says Cortez. \"I don't know but, ther're here for one reason and one reason only\" says Samuel. \"We need to hide\" says Naru. \"What? No lets just stay and fight off these idiots. Why do we need to hide? says Cortez. \"Because I'm your chief and you will do what I say, and I say we need to hide instead of fight\" says Naru. \"Ther're here\" says Samuel as he begins to whisper. \"Where?\" Naru asks. \"Right below us\" says Samuel. \"I'll need to stay out here\" says Samuel. Aria and Naru hide in the small supplies room while Cortez hides on top of the roof. The guards begin climbing up the platform as Samuel folds up the escape plans and hides them under his bed. \"What's the problem?\" Samuel asks as the guards step in and starts looking around. \"We need to perform a full search here\" says a guard. \"Well, I'm affraid you may not want to do that\" says Samuel. \"And why is that?\" the guard asks. \"Because this fort is unstable and could easily fall with someone in it, let alone 20 guards\" says Samuel. Cortez hears the signal and stabs a chunk of the roof out with his sword as it falls near them. \"See, It's falling apart before your eyes\" says Samuel. \"Maybe the roof is but the floor seems like it's holding up well, so we should be fine\" says the guard. \"Well not if the roof is caving in on you\" says Samuel. \"Fine, for safety reasons, I'll do the searching then if you guys are that weak\" says the guard as he orders everyone to leave. \"If I may ask--\" says Samuel as he's interrupted. \"No, you cannot\" says the guard. \"CAN I?\" Cortez asks as he drops down through the hole in the roof that he made. Samuel immediately covers his mouth to prevent him from yelling and ties him up. \"Lets put him in the supplies room\" says Samuel. \"Alright, we got him\" says Samuel as he signals Aria and Cortez to come back out. \"Yeah, one down, about nineteen to go\" says Cortez. \"If we wait any longer the other guards might start to get suspicious\" says Aria. \"Lets hope that doesn't happen\" says Samuel.
