the floor boards creeked under my feet
the normal sound that was once so normal has now become so terrifying
please stop creaking
that monster will hear me.
bump
i stopped dead cold.
please tell me i didnt hear that right behind me.
i turned my head slowly
why was i turning
i dont really want to see what is behind me
i already know what is there
no not what
who
i saw his face
he was nothing like the boy i had met before
that boy was nice
kind
and really hot.
this was his face but the features that had once seemed so handsom to me have turned dark and horrific
you wont get away from me maria
without even controling it i screamed and started to run.
i took advantage of the one thing i had over him
my speed
i could out run just about anyone and i wasnt about to stop
i felt the wind behind me
this felt like every other run i have ever had
my hair blowing in the wind
my troubles in the dust
my head perfectly clear
well accept the fact that it was for my life instead of for the win.
then thud
before i could figure out what it was i tripped on it
no this couldnt happen
then he jumped on me
i made a final prayer
god what ever happens please just make it happen quick
i felt a sharp pain in my stomach
it hurt so much
i could just feel the knife pericing through it
then things got so blurry
as i looked up at my killer i searched for any hope
a look of pity in his eyes
a flash of remorse or even a little fear
but there was no luck
not even a little
and as i fadded farther into the darkness i just watched him
looking into the last eyes i would ever see
for a hope that would never come
