This whole thing about taking the alleyway for short-cut was a huge mistake. The alley was pitch dark and reeked of rats. But what really unsettling was the constant slurring noises that seemed to keep following her.
What’s that noise? Is someone there?
She had checked..twice…but nobody was there.
She was alone.
Just as she about to breathe a sigh of relief, a loud BANG! came from a nearby thrash can, only a few feet behind her. Something dark leaped and charged at her. Too fast for her to even scream!
A black cat ran pass between her legs.
