Life in the Labyrinth - Ch. 5The door to the living area was open. Korena and her mother had no clue how this was, since their family was one of solitude, virtually unknown to the Labyrinth.
"Where could she be? Why would someone take her?" Korena asked in a mortified tone.
"I don't know," her mother replied, shaking.
