The running girl

Jess scurried up the steps.

She was breathless and tired, but she couldn’t stop. He was right behind her, closing in on his kill. There was no one to help her. If she stopped to rest her tired legs, if she stopped to check her bleeding knee then she would seal her fate. He was too fast.

He was a shadow at first. Not anymore.

With a few more steps she reached the doors of her sanctuary. She pulled them open. She stepped into the welcoming embrace of the library. Her library.

There was no danger there. She was safe.
