It was that day, I was stuck at my boarding school, MacFowlans for girls, AKA my living hell, and it was raining outside. I knew Judas was coming, I could just feel it. It felt like he was just around the corner, coming to get me again, ready for another bite. I remember when he bit me the last time, I felt pain beyond measure. I remember rubbing my scar as the raindrops fell down the window.
The door flew open and Judas was standing there. This was his little game he liked to play. He would watch me until I thought it was safe.

Mr Blakemore came in with a shocked look on his face. “I’ve seen this coming, it was only a matter of time!” I jumped out of the window and ran for it and as I said earlier, I can’t stop running…
