All my surroundings seemed eerily quiet as I laid low in the bushes, close to the ominous tower of my captivity. Darkness was descending and it would be time to make my escape.
The sudden scream of a hawk made my heart leap with a surge of fear. I was waiting for a sign that the time was right. Every minute seemed like years.
The eyes of the tower lit up and I new it was time to run for my life.
