β€œC’mon! Gotta keep running!”

Running through the Hideaway forest was all Evelyn seemed to do. The pouring rain fell hard down on her and the grass as she kept on running. The thunder and lightning struck hard as if the sky was going to tumble.

She had to keep on running if she wanted to live. She knew what would happen if the thing following her caught up to her. Evelyn’s backpack didn’t seem to be helping her but she couldn’t just leave it.

Inside it held something very special and all she wanted to do was run to the nearest place to keep it safe.

Suddenly she could see a light up ahead. Evelyn couldn’t tell if it was a good or bad thing but anywhere would be better than being chased by a creature.

As she got closer she could see the light getting brighter and brighter. And after pushing some bushes to the side she saw that it was a cottage. She could tell that someone was inside and she immediately knew who due to the flowers along with the house.

But there was no time to look at the decorations or try to figure out who lives there. She suddenly looked back to hear creaks following her along. Evelyn knew it was getting close so with another glance at the house she knew what she had to do.

With a little smile and a tear sliding down her cheek she kissed the baby knowing it will be the last time she would see him. Evelyn then closed her backpack and knocked on the door.

As soon as she knocked on the door she ran away from the house murmuring, β€œGoodbye my little Tony...I hope you enjoy life,” leaving the baby boy, not knowing what will happen next...

TManka: I enjoyed this book. I have to finish it but it is good. Maybe the only thing I can say to make it better is that it could use some editing. But most of the editing is small things.

Ffion: Sooo fun! What a thrill

Lizzy: This was a super good novel. It had a few typos but nothing major. It was a really good storyline and definitely was worth the read.

Titel_Blue: The plot remembers me of the classic The Pledge by Friedrich Durrenmatt, except here we have more girls murdered, but it will be difficult to beat the original. Regarding the style, it seems to be a bit too wordy.

justcallmeCaroline, aight?: My eyes are very swollen & got a migraine from crying too much from the first chapter to the epilogue. I rarely read a book that is full of pain, & tears but this book exceeds my expectation. I was captivated by Raina's strength. I was hooked by Roman's love for Rae. And I stan a protective fathe...

Anonymous🎭: Nice book Unique plot

Diana G. Lim: Love everything about this book. How they met, how domineering the male lead (who is also the boss), how brave the female lead is to venture & follow her dream, how the explosive the chemistry that was always around both of them... Thank goodness for some kind of drama to make it a complete book....
