writings on the wall
The path was familiar, limbs had fallen off the trees making the direction less clear, fog had swept over the entire area making it very difficult to know where one was, however I had been here, it was a place I had been before and was supposed to be. It was quiet, almost defeatning which made the place all the more eerie, I reminded myself I could not be hurt, he'd hurt me once but he couldn't hurt me further. I knew I needed to be here and that's when I felt it, I felt the hairs on the back of my neck stand up, he was here, he was very close. As I continued to walk along the beaten path I started to hear him, his light footsteps and his heavy breathing. I was scared though I tried to remain calm, this was important, if he ever was going to be caught I needed to concentrate and find out where he was. I continued to walk, I could see lights ahead, it seemed we weren't far from a town and that's when I spotted him, only a few feet away from me. I knew the chances of saving the innocent victim were out of my reach but if I could find a name of the town he was about to enter Hunter could help me. As we walked I thought I saw a sign and instead of following him I knew I needed to have some sort of sign to go off, I ran to it, it was lit up so I didn't have to travel far, Lake City, I saw it, the words I desperately longed for, a place I could tell Hunter where he was at, I was sad because I knew the place and knew quite a few people in the town, I just hoped that the detective would be able to notify someone quickly enough to get out here, this man shouldn't go unnoticed but with everything as quiet as it is each evening that's asking a lot. I closes my eyes... Hunter... In seconds I stand by the river where I see Hunter laying underneath the stars, he's no longer startled by my presence, which is nice considering this could be happening more and more I look him in the eyes "Lake Citys, he's in Lake City" his stands to his feet and filled with determination he runs to the house. I hope something can be done.
