I had woken up in a forest, with my hands tied behind my back. As my eyes adjusted, I saw two men sitting by a fireplace. I jumped up and started to run. I didn’t look back but then I heard it; the deafening screams that echoed through the cold night.
Desperate to get away from the monster that had caused the screams, I sprinted between the tall trees, their branches creating a blanket that covered the sky.
Then the night went unnaturally still. I turned to look at what had started chasing me. I realised that the screams had come from what used to be my kidnappers.
