Two shadows hovered in the lights that shimmered into the alley...
I decided to have a closer look as I tiptoed forward. shuffle..
shuffle... I stepped through the fallen leaves... Suddenly the
lights dimmed down... I started scurrying... Then right as I peered
out from the alley... BANG! BANG! As I looked at a man falling... I
too fell in shock... Then suddenly one of the people shouted
pointing his gun at me, "Hey you! there's a person there!" As I
looked blankly at the gun, my feet and hand began to crawl backward
automatically... Suddenly I bumped into the warm wet wall of the
alley behind me... As I looked around, I saw a corpse of a dead man
staring in terror at me... Bang! Bang! The person started shooting
at me... I jumped up in fright as I scurried back into the alley...
Trip... I fell flat into the solid cold floor... I felt warm liquid
starting to ooze on my face... Bang! Bang! Once again... I jumped
onto my feet and ran away not even taking a glimpse behind... Bang!
Bang... The shot fainted away into the dark night, but I didn't
want to take any chances... I kept running and running and tripped
again... Bleeding head to toes, I finally sat down on the
streets... Finally catching up my breath, I began to walk home...
As I walked in, I heard my parents screaming in their room... I
climbed upstairs and went straight to bed, but the scene replayed
on and on like a broken radio in my head...
