I step into the room, fear creating a heat envelope around me. I can sense the fragrance change, the temperature drops and the wind hitting the trees.
Am I safe? Are they coming for me? Will I be able to escape from this spiralling mess?
I regret not speaking my mind. If I had spoken that day, I wouldn't be stuck in this situation now.
I sense movement in the ground. Someone's coming. My heart starts to race, I can feel my blood pressure get higher and higher.
*Tap, tap, tap
No. This can't be happening.
*Open the door. GOD DAMN OPEN IT

I wish to survive, but, I've had enough.
The scares from family, not relationship, the backstabs from ex - best friends not boyfriends.
*Let's go. I don't think she's here.
*If we don't find her, boss is going to kill us.

And I'm still alive.
