The Only, Ch.15 Deal?Three days after Aldrich's capture, he was still a prisoner in the cabin. Kat and Jeff had worked to put heavy locks on the spare bedroom's door. They'd painted the window black from the outside and boarded it up. Slenderman had hung a bunch of bells and glass bulbs outside the window. If there was an escape attempt, they would hear it. Aldrich was left in the nearly empty room with only a bed and some books for company. Jeff would escort him to the bathroom every four hours.
