2. Chapter 1 - I Ran

*OLIVE’S FLASHBACK*

I ran as fast as I could. I wiped the tears from my eyes to prevent my vision from blurring. The road was rough on my bare feet and I knew I’d have cuts and scrapes on the bottom of them after this. But it was worth it, I didn’t care. I looked over my shoulder and realized that I needed to pick up the pace. I ran faster even though my legs ached and my throat was dry. None of that mattered to me right now. I just needed to keep running.

I rounded the corner, and I saw a car. I waved my hands and started screaming for them to stop. They hadn’t heard me, or chose to ignore me, because they kept driving. I didn’t know where I was going. I had been running, no, sprinting for ten minutes straight. It hadn’t been enough yet; I wondered when it would be.

More tears started to fall from my eyes. I didn’t bother to wipe them away this time, I knew they would just come back. I blinked to clear my eyes to continue having clear vision of the long road in front of me. I had only seen the one car. No people or anything else. Then again, it was two o’clock in the morning, not many people are out then.

I started looking around frantically for anywhere to go. Anywhere at all that would take me. I was seeing nothing. Nothing at all, except a long dark road. That wasn’t going to do anything for me. I guess while I was looking I must have slowed down, because I don’t remember anything after that.
