' Run , Run, Run. I have to run. There is no other option except running ,so I have to....I think it is behind me, chasing me everywhere I go. Should I take a look whether it is .... Or not...no , no , no...why my legs are not with me! Trembling ,not a minute this shake stop... that thing was fireous , having unstructured figure...I dare to look behind. It was eyes ... its eyes.. only visible thing about it ...red. dark red as the color of blood ... around them was cold in its hard stare ... as if indicative as warning of something unexpectedly bad waiting for me... I can't feel my legs now ...I think I can't even stand. It's coming ... hearing me , very very near...now what to do... there is no one to help me out here. It is devastated area rubble here and there...I feel the slow wind on my face...now hard on my sides it is swooshing around me I think ..i heard crying now... a group of voices...I can not say what they are saying but I can identify them ... they are all shouting .. I cannot even hold ... it's intensity raise to higher.... ''
