I walked through the dark alley, my mind set on my thoughts and fears.
I walked through a puddle, the splash echoing
Throughout the alley.
Suddenly a sound of footsteps running caught my attention.
I listened as another pair of steps echoed down the alley in front of me. I hid behind a trash can, careful of the sounds I could make. I listened carefully, unable to breath.
"Where is my money?!" A angry voice hissed, audible for my ears. "I-I promise to give it to you tomorrow! Just give me one more day please!" Another voice begged.
The first person snickered. "Your a disgrace to human exsistence." They chuckled, I could the power in their voice. "Please! I have a family!" The second person cried. Suddenly a bang sound the alley way.....a gunshot!
I peeped over the trash can I was hiding behind to see a tall, dark figure standing with a gun pointing down at a now dead body on the floor. I gasped moving backwards, hitting a stone which skimmed across the alley, hitting the wall. I shot back to see the figures head snap in my direction.
The figure almost growled, like a fierce lion and started marching towards me. "Run Scarlett! Run!" I said to myself, unable to move.
And suddenly, as if my body listened to me, I turned sharply and sprinted down the alley.
