Here's my story:
All of a sudden, Rose accidentally tripped and fell, feeling herself swiftly pulled downwards by the invisible forces of gravity. In the blink on an eye, Rose was on all fours, her limbs wounded, painful and sore. She forced herself up, but her left ankle gave way under her weight. Her heart was filled with dread and fear seemed to tighten its grip around her windpipe. She tried her best to crawl on all fours.
“Just where do you think you’re going, little miss?” A man’s mocking voice pricked her ears. Rose’s body stiffened in response and coldness seeped into her bones. Slowly, she turned her head and saw the devilish smile playing on Ethan’s handsome face.
“Please let me go, I promise you I won’t tell anyone!” Rose cried in a desperate effort to save herself.
“Oh no, if I let you go, you’d tell everyone I’m the ‘wolf’ who murdered Anne. I’ll just put a bullet right through your brains and you’ll be gone for good.” His voice held no remorse as he pointed the barrel towards Rose’s forehead.
Feeling defeated, Rose closed her eyes in surrender……
Rose opened her eyes, only to find herself alive, and Ethan dead. He was shot in the heart by her 80-year-old grandmother Emma, whose fragile body was shuddering as she dropped her gun to the ground.
