"Carl! No!"

Rachel cried out and stretched out her hands to grab Carl, but it had happened too fast. Carl was slipping downward quickly out of their sight. It was impossible for her to catch him.

Hiram let go of her hand right away. Then, touching her shoulder in hesitation, he told Chad and Daniel, who were a few steps ahead of them, "Take care of her for me please!"

"What are you doing, Hiram?" Rachel cried out nervously. She already knew what he was going to do, but she asked anyway. She watched him walk towards the spot where Carl had slipped. She felt so scared that she would lose him that she was following him without even realizing.

Chad grabbed Rachel's hand and shouted at her, "Don't worry! Calm down! My cousin is good with his hands. He'll manage it and come back safe and sound with Carl. Don't do silly things! Come with me."

Chad was Hiram's cousin too. Even though he always tried to avoid getting too close to Hiram in public places so that people would see his talent and not his relation with Hiram, at this moment, he forgot all of that. All he cared about was Hiram's safety. He tried to assure Rachel and, of course, himself.

If all lives had different values, Hiram's life would be the most expensive one among all of theirs.

Now, he was risking his life to go after Carl, shocking the whole group. They all admired his courage. All they could think about was what a nice person he was and that he treated them like friends, not subordinates.

"No, I can't. Carl must be safe, Hiram must be safe. Let's do something, okay?" Rachel said. Then, turning to Murphy, she shouted, "Murphy, come here!" She pulled her hand out of Chad's grip.

"Listen, Murphy. You must go find Hiram and Carl with the four of them, please! Time waits for no man, " she cried out. She couldn't wait. The slope Carl had slipped down was very steep. It looked dozens of meters high. It was impossible for Hiram to bring Carl back alone. She had to do something.

"I don't think..." Murphy started with a reluctant expression on his face.

Daniel stepped forward and cut him off. "She's right, you know. If something happens to them, none of us will be at peace. Chad, Gary and I will stay here with Rachel waiting for you. You and the four veterans go and find them. I believe you can make it with your good skills!"

Seeing all of them agree with Rachel's decision, Murphy nodded his head and said to the four veterans, "Okay, no problem. Let's move!"

They went after Hiram as fast as they could.

The rain went on and on without any sign of stopping. Turning to Daniel and Rachel, Chad said, "We'd better find a place to shelter ourselves. Gary and I will go find something to make a shelter for us. We'll go crazy if we keep standing under this heavy rain."

Daniel nodded to him. He walked up to Rachel and grabbed her arm to make sure that she wouldn't slip down.

"Relax! All our good hands are searching for them. They will return safe and sound. Believe me, " Daniel said, trying to comfort her. Her face was as pale as a ghost. He took off his raincoat and covered her head with it.

Biting her lips tightly, Rachel kept her eyes fixed on the place where Hiram had disappeared. Lightning flashed and thunder tumbled. The rain seemed like it would last

four hours until they finally saw somebody approaching.

"You people should come with me. Hurry up! We've found Hiram and Carl. They're waiting for you at the foot of the mountain." It was Murphy, and he had brought good news with him. Everyone relaxed.

They had been worrying about Carl and Hiram all night long. Now they finally knew that the two of them were safe and sound.

With Murphy guiding them, all of them reached the foot of the mountain. They couldn't wait to meet Hiram and Carl.

At the foot of the mountain, Rachel felt like her heart would burst out of happiness when she saw Hiram standing there safe and sound. She looked up and down at him from a distance.

She was exhausted from the rough night, but she felt alive again after seeing him. She couldn't help but run up to him as fast as she could.

"Hiram, here you are! Do you know how much I worried about you all night? I was so scared!"

Seeing her run up to him, Hiram opened his arms wide. He couldn't hide his smile as he said, "Sorry, sorry for making you worry! Honey, I love you!"

Rachel clung on to him tightly. She had never felt so scared in her life. She never wanted to feel that way again.

She didn't even care about what the others would think. All she wanted to do was hold him tight. Feeling his warm body against hers made her sure that he was real and not a figment of her imagination.

Despite all the people watching them, Hiram bent down to kiss her deeply again and again. "I promise it won't happen again. I promise. See, I'm standing right in front of you, safe and sound, " he said between the kisses.

"Are you alright, Carl?" Rachel asked, finally detaching herself from Hiram and wiping off her tears. She wondered whether Carl was injured.

Carl was being held up by two of the others. One of his ankles was injured and cut up in many places. He shook his head and said to Rachel, "I'm fine. I'm fine. Don't worry, Rachel. I'm sorry for making you worry about me."

Daniel coughed, taking his eyes away from the scene in front of him. He spotted the cars that were approaching and shouted at everybody there, "Come on. Let's get into the cars. It's going to rain again!"
