I didn't wait to hear more, but launched out of the chair and across the room. I had to find him, stop him! Hurtling through the door into the living room, I slammed into an immovable object. Strong hands gripped my shoulders. They kept me from falling, but they weren't letting me go anywhere, either.
"What part of, 'Keep your distance,' don't you understand, Ms. Fox?"
I thrashed and kicked, trying to break Rune's grip. "Let me go!" I pummeled his chest. "Let! Me! Go! I have to find Ke-Ling before he—" But I couldn't bring myself to say it.
"Before he what?" Rune gave me a hard shake. "Come on, Kai-Lee, snap out of it! Calm down and tell me what's going on."
Tears streamed down my face. "The video. He made a video," I sobbed, with a wild glance toward at the computer. I looked up to see Rune staring over my head, eyes narrowed on the monitor. "He's going to kill himself!" I started to struggle all over again. "Let me go! Don't just stand there! Do something! We've got to stop him!"
"Too late," Rune said, nodding over my shoulder.
