Running from the spotlight
This is something i thought about after a lockdown at school.
Love in reality
It was a day just like any other, yet I could still feel a stillness in the air. I was in fifth period and texting my bestfriend Haylee. As we were learning about social groups a voice came over the intercom announced, "Do not panic but we are now initiating a soft lockdown." 'Well thats great' I thought to myself I had riding after school and if I was late agian my trainer was going to kill me. Not like I had been looking forward to it as much as I usually do, because of the fact that I had been in a tough spot lately not having a horse at the moment. We ended up being on lockdown for about 3 hours and finally the voice appeared again, "At this time all bus riders will be escorted to the buses." I was dismissed from my class and I saw Haylee standing there waiting for me. We walked into the quad and suddenly heard a commotion, I remember seeing a man with a gun being chased by the cops. Just before the cops tackled the man he pointed the gun at Haylee and pulled the trigger I jumped in front of her and felt excruciating pain in my shoulder. The last thing I heard was Haylee crying hysterically and I will never forget what she said, "Cali, you saved my life ." then nothingness.
