"Jack saw this distraction as his opportunity to get away. He ran to the next tree and caught a glimpse of Lucy, who was still backed up against the tree, rigid with fear. Jack tried to motion to her, but it wasn''t any use. She was too scared to move, and Jack guessed that she had her eyes closed the way she always did when she got scared. Knowing that Lucy was not going to get away without help, Jack looked back at the pirate named Edgar, who was still dancing around trying to put out his flaming boot, and feeling certain he could make his way to Lucy without being seen, he ran to his sister''s aid. Jack''s plan would have worked beautifully considering the pirate was too preoccupied to notice Jack, but Lucy did have her eyes closed, as Jack had predicted, and when Jack grabbed her arm and tried to pull her away from the camp, Lucy let out a bloodcurdling scream.
.Jack and Lucy were about to learn just that as Lucy opened her eyes and realized what a terrible mistake she had made in screaming."
