The bad memories had resurfaced, violently slamming into Li Xueyue like a sword piercing through flesh. She felt her palms turn clammy, her eyes moisten with tears.
Li Xueyue's heart froze with terror for a split second before it suddenly thumped against her chest. Ba-dump. Ba-dump. Like the sound of drums during a ceremony. Her foot was rooted to the wooden floor. Any second now, she would break into tears.
Li Xueyue did not think her worst nightmare would be walking towards her. One grimy step at a time. In her eyes, he wasn't even human. He moved like a monster of the night, large and terrifying, nothing but contours of shadows stalking through the forest.
She didn't realize her hands were shaking until she hugged her stomach out of fear. It felt like bugs were crawling upon her skin, creating goosebumps.
"Heavens no…" she breathed out, believing this must've been a wicked dream of hers.
