She ran through the town, cool air nipping at her neck and arms. Her legs were strong, carrying her swiftly to the hole in the fence. She knew she should stop going, knew her every move was being watched now and forever. She didn’t need to hunt anymore, she had money, a house, food; but she needed it. Her soul needed it. She needed to be free, even for a few hours. The woods gave her that.
The forest had changed while she was away. It was a darker green now, with hues of orange and red threatening to overtake it all. Autumn was fully here, and soon, the snow would fall, blanketing the world in pure white.
Leaves crunched beneath her feet, making it harder to sneak up on her prey, but she wasn’t expecting to take a life today. She just wanted the fresh air, the open sky; wanted to watch the sunrise through the trees.
