Avenging Sweeney Chapter 5
Never in a million years did little Sandra A. Todd believe she could revive the dead. She always believed that was something only the characters in novels could do. She sat and watched his chest rise and fall. Suddenly a thought ran through her head. 'I can't leave him down here. Maybe I can get him upstairs...' She looked over at the stairs. "I could atempt to drag him. He appears to be out of it, so it can't possibly hurt him. Hang on daddy." She slowly stood up and placed her arms under his armpits and began to lift. She let out a soft groan, as she was a 16-year-old carrying a man in maybe his mid-30s. She carefully and slowly dragged the adult to the stairs, and slowly made her way up. Once at the top of the stairs she breathed, panting softly. Once most her breath was caught, she dragged him to Mrs. Lovett's parlor area and lied him on the couch. He looked peaceful.

She began to sob as she quickly ran upstairs with her stuff and climbed into a booth where customers once sat. She curled up and continued to sob. All she could think was "Why?"
~Somewhere else in England~
The brown haired sailor Anthony Hope had successfully escaped with Johanna. Now the two were finally free. Once they settled, the two would begin to plan what would happen next. They moved far from London, away from the Judge. However, they could get back to see Mr. Todd if they wanted. Johanna had been distant. Not very talkative since the two got away. This began to worry Anthony.
"Johanna? Are you doing alright?"
She didn't say a word.
"Did something happen?"
She hesitated. "Kind of, Anthony."
