Footsteps echo behind you but when you look you see no one there to fill them. Now they are all around you. In the front, on both sides, surrounding you. Your heart beats franticly as you try to distance yourself from them, but they seem to get closer and closer with each step you take. Only the darkness is your ally while trying to escape. The light is your enemy that will blow your cover. Your mind and train of thought has left you because of the lonely word that floods your head is SURVIVE.

Louder and louder they get.

Closer and closer they still come.

Your life is now hanging by a thread as you play as the animal in the hunting game. You run finding that they decrescendo.

Softer and softer they get.

Farther and farther away they go.

Your breath is heavy and your chest ascends and descends as your panting. You hide in another part of the shadows where you wish to be unseen, hoping that the darkness acts as a veil to make you invisible.

Louder and louder they get.

Closer and closer they come.

You still see no figure of a human responsible for the steps. Your adrenaline is put to its max as fear takes over. You’re hoping they won’t find you but yet again you could be wrong. Then the footsteps stop.

Quiet is the night.

Silence is in the air.

The only noise within it is the breath that escapes you. Your chest fixing to explode and your heart ready to stop as the suspense fills inside you. It fills you like Helium filling a balloon. Expanding to the point where eventually it will pop. Sweat drips from your face and moist your clothes and the bodily odor now fills your nose as it escapes your pores. You try to relax as you look every direction to see if they are still stalking you. Eventually minutes pass by and you think that they are gone. Slowly you walk on your toes trying to keep silence as you push forward. Then a creak comes from behind you.

You look and there is no one there.

Emptiness in the night.

The creak of something far away rose the fear again but quickly fades as you see nothing. Now pleased that there is nothing following you, you turn and push forward.

But as you turn comes a hand around your throat.

Your air betrays you and now you struggle.

Then death comes as the life is taken from you.
