TrackedThump, thump, thump, the only sound as my feet pound against the hard ground. Quickly, I glance behind me, ensuring I'm not being pursued. I'm safe.

Horrified, I realize it's already too late, the sound of following steps more proof than my weakened heart can handle.I don't need to turn around to know who's behind me. Who's following me.
