“THAT’S IT!” She hears a man’s voice bellow. The girl trembles.
“Please spare Sashimi,” A woman’s voice pleads. The girl’s head turns to the sound of her name.
“Oh please!” the man replies, “She’s next!” The girl knows she needs to make a run for it. She unsteadily stands up. Her head just barely reaches the table length, she’s safe. For now. She runs to the open door. As she runs out, she can hear the sirens coming from the outside. The loud bellowing from the sirens makes her tremble. The streets of the small town are full of cars and noises. She sees the other houses and they all look the same. The first thought she has is, “I need to get as far away as I can.” She runs. She runs as fast as her little legs can carry her and as far as she will be able to go. She stumbles and falls on the sidewalk. She cheek begins to lightly bleed. She looks up and a woman holding the hand of another small child.
“Oh! Are you okay?” the woman asks.
“Y-yes,” Sashimi replies shakily standing up.
