Faster! Faster! They’re gonna get ya!

Out. Of. Shape. Legs burn. Lungs hurt. Heart’s about to burst.

Keep running! Keep…oh,God, help me… they’re close…gettin closer.

I can’t keep this up, I can’t- there! A house!  Oh, please, please be open.

A hand brushes my shoulder.

Faster! Faster! You’re almost there.

No! It’s locked! Open up…please…OPEN UP!

Ahhh, my arm! Noooo! My leg!

They’re killing me! They’re killing me!

Help me! For God’s sake, OPEN THE DAMN DOOR!

I’m dyin…I’m dyin…I’m…

hungry…so very hungry
