    Excerpt

    I heard the clatter of the bridge. Jimmy turned and cautiously peered around the tree. Scrambling to my feet, I almost fell but caught myself with the palms of my hands. Desperation drove me and there was no looking back. It was time to run like hell.

    “Maggie, get back here!” He screamed. I could hear him running behind me, deep breaths pulsing from him with each step.

    Thorns of the shrubbery alongside the muddy road were snagging my feet and each rock igniting a nerve. The sting bit into my flesh on both my arms and legs, but I kept pounding ahead. Tree limbs were snapping. His pace quickened. I didn't dare look back. My chest felt tight. I gasped for air. And then, darkness.
