(Note to Reader-This is based off a game. So if this seems familiar, guess. Anyway, whats this is based off of, that belongs to the author. Enjoy?)----The girl dashed through the gallery with the painting in her arms."I must not let her get this." the girl thought."She might get free." The gallery was like a maze, long hallways and dead ends. The girl turned down a corridor and dashed for the door ahead of her, her hopes rising. She opened the door and looked inside. It was nothing but a room filled with paintings of bunnies. Bunny paintings and ornaments. The girl ran in and locked the door shut."This may not be the exit." she muttered,"but its a good place to hide the painting before she kills me." She heard scratches on the door, a good sign she should hide it. She hid the painting behind a large painting of a pink bunny. Suddenly, there was a laugh, followed by silence. The girl breathed a quick sigh of relief, thinking it was over. She opened the door to the corridor slowly. Nothing there. She stepped out and felt a sharp pain in her back. Slowly, the girl reached back there and found a handle in her back. She pulled it out shakily and found a pallet knife, covered in blood.(That was the prologue. I think I made it too short though. Anyway, next chapter, next result. Post a comment please! See ya!)
