Cool, clear skies rose above her in the depths of a never-ending autumn. A full moon hung in the air, its light filtering down through the half-bare trees, casting a silvery glow across the undergrowth. The gentle breeze made the shadows dance, casting them long and wide, making it impossible to hide in their changing darkness. Racing through the woods, Leanne was running for her life, fearfully checking over her shoulder every few seconds, eyes darting across the shifting shadows. Her footsteps were loud and harsh on the dry ground, slapping away the silence that would prevent her from being found. Her heart was racing, pounding in her chest as she fought for breath. With her life on the line, she couldn’t afford to be caught, not now, not ever. If he found her, if he followed her crashing footsteps, sounding like thunder in the quiet night, then he would kill her.
If he caught her, she would die by his hands.
