The scream echoed down the stadiums steel hallway.
“Noooooooooo, oh god, oh goooooood”
His pounding feet rang closer
Emily wanted to call out but held back. She thought about reaching out from under the stairs but thought better of it, she would be lucky if he didn’t try to stomp on her hand.
His pounding feet came closer. He took the stairs two at a time, sprinting away from the shuffling monstrosities behind him.
Emily saw him turn to check the stairs he had just come down.
As he turned back and began to sprint on, Emily went back to eating her popcorn.
