There's someone in the woods. At least that's what the students said, what a spectacle. Before it all happened this school was still respectable, a symbol of flawless education and its standards commendable. At break time the kids ran down the hill, talking whilst walking around and plucked the daffodils, but that all stopped on a particular day in April. 'There's someone in the woods!' the children told me, riddled with fright and smeared with mud. At first, I took no notice of it, but they chose to persist and so I investigated these claims, lest the youngsters spread rumours. Unfortunately, when my search yielded nought, rumours still rose and darted ahead, faster than I could stop them. Again and again, I searched, far and wide, until I came across an old shack in the woods, which was obscured by overgrowth. How unlucky enough I was to discover a scene of blood and gore at the same time the law had found me. Mistook me for a crazed killer they did. My pleas for mercy and my speeches of explanations were no match for the bullets that came with them. After my demise, my name was slandered and reputation ruined. I'm only remembered as a killer and a maniac, one that had been framed, but that knowledge did not reach the public's ears. But even in death, as an echo of who I once was, lies can still become reality. There's someone in the woods...
