Run, run, run. Your heart pounding ever so fast. huff and Puff through the midnight alley. You look behind you, she's still there. That dark shadow and that evil smile. Evil laugh heard within your ears. Run, Run. Untill she grabs you, and then you know that the deadly game of cat and mouse is over, as she steals your life a way.
