I was running down the hallway faster than I ever had. Cody was running next to me, falling behind the slightest bit. The cloaked man we had just encountered was drifting after us on a cloud of darkness along with the shadow figures that Annabelle had tried to kill me with. Me and Cody continued to run but we could not last long. We had to turn into one of the classrooms to take a break. Once we were safely inside the room Cody helped me push something in front of the door. After that we both collapsed on the floor breathing heavy. There was a long moment of just loud breathing, “looks like a band room,” Cody said. I looked around and saw what he meant. There were instruments in cases strewn around the room and stands for music packed by the walls. “Quiet,” Cody suddenly whispered in my ear. “Why,” I whispered back “Look at the conductor's stand,” he replied. I slowly turned my head to face the stand. I jumped when I saw a small dark figure standing in the place of a conductor. “What is that?” I asked Cody “One of Annabelle’s minions,” he said back. I had seen one before in the dream I had about the catwalk, I remembered it grabbing my hand and making me fall to my death. But that had only been a dream, maybe it would come true.
The figure on the conductor's stand started to come towards us. “Run!” Cody yelled. We both jumped up and charged for the door. We pushed away the thing we put in front of the door and tried to open it but it was locked.
