She stood still wondering how she knew what was happening.
As soon as she turned to flee from the place, there stood in front of her two men wearing masks. She panicked a bit before leaping over a decaying tree branch to escape.
She ran past the yellow building beside Victoria’s house and began to run with all her strength. The two men chased her across the buildings while holding a torch.
She found a backyard door which was slightly opened and entered in. One of the men stopped at the exact place and began to call her to come out. The second man arrived and asked him to force their way in.

“OK, Thank you! Please, give me your phone number.”
“Check the paper I gave you. Go… Go… Go… I will take care of Stella. Be careful.”
Sophia thanked him and quickly took the bus going to the state capital. When she boarded the bus and sat at the last seat, a young boy smiled at her.
