I ran and ran until the bottom of my feet ached from the rough forest floor. I knew he was faster than me but trying to get away was better than just waiting for my expected death.

Growing tired of running, I made a sudden decision and hid behind a bush. I knew he would find me eventually but I wanted to have some calm moments before I met my fate.

Calling it him seemed easier because I couldn't add brightness to this monster anymore. He had become too dark as if he had a satanic aura surrounding his lean frame.

My movements were still at first but they faltered when I heard feet padding against the soft, white forest floor. I knew I should've been quieter although my body was doing the complete opposite.

My breathes were labored and the mixture of coldness and fear made my body shiver like there was no tomorrow.
