You can run but you can't stay alive
Run for your life
As I kept running from the woods I was getting even more tired but I can't stop. Something is after me but what could it be. "Don't stop, keep running" I kept telling myself while I looked behind and the thing was still after me. I realized it was a person with a knife.
"You can run but you can't stay alive " he said. What did he mean by that. Those words sent a chill down my back as I kept running. I almost fell down. I was lucky not to fall. "I'm almost out" I said. I was out of the woods. That person left, and was nowhere to be found.
When I got home my mom said "Where were you? You were supposed to be home hours ago. Well now you have to stay home alone. Dinner is in the fridge. OK... Your dad and I have to go to a meeting, OK dear". "OK mom".
As soon as they left, the phone rang and I was so freaked out at who it was. It was the same person who tried to kill me in those woods. He said the same thing as he had before... "You can run but you can't stay alive". I heard a knock at the door. When I opened it I got stabbed by that person. When my parents got home on the wall in blood was a message...
YOU CAN RUN BUT YOU CAN'T YOU STAY ALIVE
