It was Christmas, and I was supposed to be at home next to the fireplace.

I wasn't supposed to be here, in the snow, watching the dainty snowflakes twirl and dance in the air.

I wasn't supposed to have a weight on my shoulders or a bounty on my head or be leaving a trail of footprints stained with red.

I caught my breath; I heard a rustling in the bushes.

They found me.
