I take in a deep breath, the air is filled with fresh crisp leaves and the sweet aroma of pumpkins.

I take in a deep breath, the air is filled with fresh crisp leaves and the sweet aroma of pumpkins. A dog barked in the distance and a couple of kids were playing in the front yard of Mrs. Ski's house. I’m walking home, school was pretty tiring today.

Lucky for me, I got all of my homework done in class and study hall.

Lucky for me, I got all of my homework done in class and study hall. I’m going over to Ryan’s house to work on our science project. It's due in a week. We have to draw the atmosphere layers around the earth and stuff.

As I’m lost in thought a black SUV approached me, stopping a couple feet in front of me, and rolled down the window.

As I’m lost in thought a black SUV approached me, stopping a couple feet in front of me, and rolled down the window. The person behind the window calls out to me, “Hey!” ignoring him I continued walking.

My mom says I shouldn’t talk to strangers.

My mom says I shouldn’t talk to strangers. He calls out again.

My mom says I shouldn’t talk to strangers. He calls out again. “Hasn’t your mom ever told you It’s rude to ignore people?”

Red flag.

Red flag. I can feel it.

Red flag. I can feel it. I just need to keep walking.

Red flag. I can feel it. I just need to keep walking. I'm almost on Ryan's street.

Red flag. I can feel it. I just need to keep walking. I'm almost on Ryan's street. I’ll be safe at her house.

Red flag. I can feel it. I just need to keep walking. I'm almost on Ryan's street. I’ll be safe at her house. “Your mom’s in the hospital.” Stopping in my tracks I turn to face his car.

“What did you say?” I fumble with my keys.

“What did you say?” I fumble with my keys. “The hospital sent me to come find you, your mother is in the hospital. She was involved in a car accident.”

“What did you say?” I fumble with my keys. “The hospital sent me to come find you, your mother is in the hospital. She was involved in a car accident.” 'No. He’s lying to you Elena. You know this. Just turn around and run and scream. Knock on a door. I’m sure they’ll answer.'

“But my mom…”

“But my mom…” 'She’s fine. Go to Ryan’s house and call her. You’ll be safer there.'

“But my mom…” 'She’s fine. Go to Ryan’s house and call her. You’ll be safer there.' “You don’t know that.”

“But my mom…” 'She’s fine. Go to Ryan’s house and call her. You’ll be safer there.' “You don’t know that.” 'I don’t know that, It’s just a feeling. '

“But my mom…” 'She’s fine. Go to Ryan’s house and call her. You’ll be safer there.' “You don’t know that.” 'I don’t know that, It’s just a feeling. ' “Screw your feeling. I need to know if my mom’s okay.”

'Then text her. That’s what you have a phone for Elena.'

'Then text her. That’s what you have a phone for Elena.' “Fine.” Taking a step back he stepped out of the car as I reached for my phone.

'Then text her. That’s what you have a phone for Elena.' “Fine.” Taking a step back he stepped out of the car as I reached for my phone. “Please, your mothers worried sick about you.” He took a step forward.

'Then text her. That’s what you have a phone for Elena.' “Fine.” Taking a step back he stepped out of the car as I reached for my phone. “Please, your mothers worried sick about you.” He took a step forward. 'Elena you need to run. Now.'

“I’m fine, he’s not even near me.”

“I’m fine, he’s not even near me.” 'Elena…'

“I’m fine, he’s not even near me.” 'Elena…' “Shut up! Just let me think! Please.”

“I’m fine, he’s not even near me.” 'Elena…' “Shut up! Just let me think! Please.” 'I’m trying to keep you safe!'

“I’m fine, he’s not even near me.” 'Elena…' “Shut up! Just let me think! Please.” 'I’m trying to keep you safe!' “Why? You’re not real.”

“I’m fine, he’s not even near me.” 'Elena…' “Shut up! Just let me think! Please.” 'I’m trying to keep you safe!' “Why? You’re not real.” 'I need to protect you, Elena.'

“ You’re not real…”

“ You’re not real…” 'Elena! Run!' Blinking a couple times, I felt hot tears stream down my face.

“ You’re not real…” 'Elena! Run!' Blinking a couple times, I felt hot tears stream down my face. That’s when I realized the man was only a couple feet away from me.

“ You’re not real…” 'Elena! Run!' Blinking a couple times, I felt hot tears stream down my face. That’s when I realized the man was only a couple feet away from me. Almost arms length.

“ You’re not real…” 'Elena! Run!' Blinking a couple times, I felt hot tears stream down my face. That’s when I realized the man was only a couple feet away from me. Almost arms length. I took another step back.

'Elena?'

'Elena?' “What?”

'Elena?' “What?” 'If you really want to go with him. Ask him what your mom's name is.'

'Elena?' “What?” 'If you really want to go with him. Ask him what your mom's name is.' “What?”

'Elena?' “What?” 'If you really want to go with him. Ask him what your mom's name is.' “What?” 'If he was really looking for you, your mom would’ve told him her name.'

“What’s her name?” I backed up a couple more steps tightening my grip on my keys.

“What’s her name?” I backed up a couple more steps tightening my grip on my keys. “W-what?”

“What’s her name?” I backed up a couple more steps tightening my grip on my keys. “W-what?” 'See! There, you stumped him. He didn’t think of that.'

“What’s her name?” I backed up a couple more steps tightening my grip on my keys. “W-what?” 'See! There, you stumped him. He didn’t think of that.' “Whats. My. Moms. name.” My teeth were clenched and tears were coming out hot.

“That doesn’t matter, your mom needs you. Please come with me-”

“That doesn’t matter, your mom needs you. Please come with me-” 'He doesn’t know your name, your mom's name, who you are. He just wants to take you away from your mom. That’s all he wants Elena.'

“That doesn’t matter, your mom needs you. Please come with me-” 'He doesn’t know your name, your mom's name, who you are. He just wants to take you away from your mom. That’s all he wants Elena.' “No. That’s sick. No one would do that. That's, that's- that’s kidnapping.”

'He doesn’t care. You’re probably not the first.'

'He doesn’t care. You’re probably not the first.' “Please.” He stepped closer and I stepped farther back.

'He doesn’t care. You’re probably not the first.' “Please.” He stepped closer and I stepped farther back. Turning my heels, I ran down Elm street and I could hear him cursing.

'He doesn’t care. You’re probably not the first.' “Please.” He stepped closer and I stepped farther back. Turning my heels, I ran down Elm street and I could hear him cursing. Thudding footsteps close behind me.

Turning left I took the short cut into Burch berry forest.

Turning left I took the short cut into Burch berry forest. Twigs and sticks snapped under my feet and branches scrapped my bare legs and arms.

Turning left I took the short cut into Burch berry forest. Twigs and sticks snapped under my feet and branches scrapped my bare legs and arms. I couldn’t feel it. I just ran.

Bursting out of the forest I ran across the street I could see Ryan’s brick house in the distance.

Bursting out of the forest I ran across the street I could see Ryan’s brick house in the distance. Her dad's van in the driveway. 'You’re so close Elena. Keep going, don't look behind you.' But the curiosity got the better of me.

Quickly I turned my head hearing a loud horn.

Quickly I turned my head hearing a loud horn. Before I could see anything I felt a pang in my body as I flew a few feet hitting the asphalt hard.

Quickly I turned my head hearing a loud horn. Before I could see anything I felt a pang in my body as I flew a few feet hitting the asphalt hard. My head bashing onto the road, phone slipped out of my hand cracking.

A throbbing sensation raced through my head.

A throbbing sensation raced through my head. Someone was crouched beside me.

My whole body throbbed in a beating pattern.

My whole body throbbed in a beating pattern. Everything hurt.

My whole body throbbed in a beating pattern. Everything hurt. Maybe this was it. My life is over, I’m dying. 'Elena you’re not dying.' My eyesight was getting worse.

Someone picked me up and everything went black and silent.
