Running away never felt so good, as I stumbled and fell face first into the puddle. I was from the big apple, NYC, a pizza delivery boy so I knew every backway to everywhere or so I thought, but when I fell Into that puddle something changed forever. I woke up in handcuffs in the back of a police car wondering what did I do.....?

 

I started screaming at the cops asking them what happened trying to be heard from behind the thick glass window that’s closed and finally they open it and they hear me and he says. You murdered a young teen named Addie Mad, the most wanted person in NYC in cold blood. You are sentenced to a maximum security prison for the rest of your life. I screamed, “ NOOOOOOOOOOO!”

 

When we got to the prison, they made me get my picture taken, then change into my prison orange clothes, and they took all of my valuables and finally took me to my prison cell, number 243 in cell block C. I had a inmate who didn’t look like he wanted to kill me and so we became what I guess you could call “friends” his name was Sid, he said he was from NYC too. It was late and we were bored so we decided to fall asleep and that’s when things got really weird, I had a dream that I was in the hospital and my family was visiting. I awoke with a fright, was that real or was that just a dream I asked myself. The last thing I remembered was that I was running, Running away, but from what or what for?

 

The next morning I awoke from sleep to the sound of an alarm ringing and It was followed by speaking “ Warning! All prisoners report to their cells IMMEDIATELY!!” Then the unexpected happened. The prison started to shake I thought to myself “EARTHQUAKE!!!” And that’s when I hit the floor.  

 

When i awoke it seemed like I was in a different world , the prison was destroyed but things were also on fire. As I walked out of what should have been my cell door I noticed that there was nobody in the prison, I w, was, I was alone.

 

Then I started running. Running away never felt so good, but then I remembered ‘The puddle!!” and as quickly as it had happened I jumped. Right into the puddle. Then I passed out.  

 

When I awoke for what seemed like the 100th time I was lying on the ground, pizza was everywhere and I was soaked then came the siren.  

 

An ambulance came to my rescue, they took me to the hospital I was sitting in the hospital bed, then something weird happened, something I will never forget.  

 

My family came to visit me, I told them this story and now i'm telling you, This goes to anyone out there who is brave enough to try and save me. I am stuck somewhere between what I think is reality and the dream world, and all I can say is Don’t come alone!


 

I wish you good luck but until you find me I guess this is  

THE END?
