“Kaden’s Reprieve”

How the hell did they find me? I’ve been so careful! Another bullet whizzed by her. This time she smelled the sulfur. Any other woman would scream for help, but experience was a damn good teacher, and experience said screaming would just prompt him to kill her faster. Tanya’s heart drummed in her ears, beats accelerating from allegretto to vivace in seconds as she chided herself for putting her life in the hands of someone she’d never even laid eyes on.

Running footsteps behind her grew closer, but so far no more bullets whizzed by. Maybe the gun wielder preferred beating her to death. The streetlights ahead offered safety. Just a few more yards and she could disappear again. She was good at that.
