But when Frank stepped across the threshold, he stopped. Lightning flashed, and for a few seconds Frank could see a length of carpeted corridor in the crackling light. Two sets of muddy footprints ran down the faded carpeting and through the doorway at the far end. Then the Hardys heard the sounds of feet running and a door slamming. "They're taking off!"
