    In the dark gloomy mischievous night as the owls hoot. In the East of London I run into the eerie night casually dressed in black, chased by a zealous civilian. I feel very indignant. There has been some things on the news about me. Now I am a hunted fugitive. He chases me onto a bridge, but, the ancient bridge suddenly comes to an end. “I’ve got you now kid,” he arrogantly screams. I can’t risk being caught so I jump into the depths of the lake.
