Story about a man who has escaped from jail, and the police are trying to find wherever he has escaped to.
I woke up in my cool bed, the fan turning, sending the cool breeze to my blankets, through to my body. I looked over at my alarm clock and the time said 2:00 A.M. I was tired, but for some reason I couldn't get to sleep. I lay tossing and turning. Still I could not get to sleep soundly, so i snuck out of bed and headed to my window. I slowly opened my blind to peak out at my empty black yard... there was nothing. I shut the blinds and climbed back into my bed. I wrapped the blankets around me again trying to fall back into a deep sleep that I had been in earlier. I was almost asleep when my father's radio turned on. His radio is the alarm clock and sometimes in the morning I love to listen to it. A song called I want you in my arms just got done playing, I hear that song every single morning, it must be a hit single or something. I continued to listen.... a news cast came on all of a sudden inturrupting the next song. There was a news report saying that some man had escaped from a jail around my house. I have to admit, I was a little freaked out. I got out of my bed for a second time, crept into my fathers room and turned off the radio. When I came back to my room I went back over to my window, and looked back into the empty night. That wasn't all that was out there. Way out at the end of my driveway stood a black figure, looking towards my direction. I couldn't see much of him, because it was to dark. I watched....and watched. He started moving towards my house. But before he got halfway there, a light was flashing further down the road. It was a bright blue and red that you could see from miles away, but apparently the man in the distance and me were the only ones who had seen this light. Once the light became extremely clear, the man vanished into the thick woods at the side of my house. I noticed that the lights were coming from a cop car. Fear struck me. I realized the man in the night was the escaped convict. I would of ran to the officers car, but i was paralized in fear knowing that if I was to step outside, the man in the woods could catch me before I could make it to the cop. I closed the blinds, and ran to my bed. Thinking of what I should do, I covered myself up and thought.
