"I ran the fastest I could. I didn't stop, didn't look back, didn't answer when he screamed my name. I ran like I've never run before, I ran like something depended on that; I ran for life.

I could feel the leafs cracking under my feet, I could feel the cold wind strongly blowing on my face, hurting my eyes already filled with tears and fear, making it almost impossible to see where I was heading to. So I just closed my eyes and let my legs run by them selves, along that path I knew almost as well as the back of my hand.

I heard him calling my name like he used to do until not so long ago, and part of me wanted to stop running from him and start running to him, to those strong arms that once hold me so dearly. But things had changed and I couldn't stop running, no matter what my heart told me. I had to run to...to anywhere but that place that hold so many memories.

The voice that called me without ceasing seemed to be losing intensity, the sound of the footsteps that were chasing me seem to be losing energy. I was leading the "race" and this time, this time I could win. Not really sure how, I managed to grab my phone a deal a number, telling the person on the other side to came pick me up, fast. I increased the pace, now closer that ever from the exit. Now and then I would hear that voice calling me, and my heart would skip a beat.

Finally I saw headlights a few meter ahead of me, on the corner of the highway I was running to. I jumped to the middle of the road, not really thinking..." And then I woke up.

I swear that was the weirdest dream I've ever had. It felt real, so real, it was almost a nightmare... And then I felt a cramp in my leg [yeah, too much running :D ] and woke up, so, we'll never know how it ended.
