Make-Up Saturday Centus #5 On the Lam

I realize I missed the actual one, but I'm a perfectionist, as you have probably figured out by now.  I'm accepting the Centus challenge, regardless of timing.  Week 5 prompt in italics.

I looked carefully down the hall in both directions, and with no one in sight, slithered soundlessly through the double doors. I settled into the comfortable movie theater seat with awkward 3D glasses perched on my nose, a small tub of popcorn on my lap, and a bottle of water lodged into the seat holder. Sigh. Would they find me? I willed my heart to stop pounding, my blood pressure to settle, and the adrenalin rush to subside. Are they looking for me yet? I was gambling that it would take them some time to notice my absence. But then I heard the voices. “We found you, Mom!” Oh snap. So much for a chick flick. They dragged me next door to endure Disney's latest drivel. Did the glasses give me away?

This is a Saturday Centus tale. Can you finish an ultra-short story in 100 words or less? If that sounds like fun, head on over to the fab Jenny Matlock for more detailed instructions. (The starter prompt is in bold italics.)
