Shona walked home, by herself, none of her friends lived in her side of town.
"Duh duh duh."She hummed. She took a short intake of breath, she could have sworn there was a hand on the grass beside her. 'It's just the shadow playing tricks on me. It's dark...' She thought.
Then she realised just how dark it was! And she realised there WAS a hand on the grass beside the path.
"SHIT!!!"She cired. "HELPPP!!ARGGGGG!!!!!!"She screamed as loudly as she could. A women came abling over.
"Are you okay dear?"She asked, "ARGGGG!"
"Call the police!!"Barked Shona.
"Okay....."The lady fumbled with a clumpy mobile. And started talking as soon as the voice came up.
5 minutes later, they could her sirens.
"What seems to be the problem, ma'am?"Asked the police officer. Then he gasped.
"GARY! GET A STERILE BAG!!!NOW!!!"He blellowed. Gary came over holding a plastic bag and some tongs.
"By God!"He gasped. Then he picked the hand up, studied it, and quickly put it in the bag, sealing it as quickly as he could.
"You two have to come with us, I'm afrain. We'll need to ask you some questions."Said Gary.
"Can I call my Mum? She'll be wondering where I am!"Begged Shona.
She flipped open her phone and dialed her home number.
"Hello?"Said ther mother in her phone voice.
"Hi, mum, it's Shone, I have to go to the police station, come pick me up....No. I haven't done anything wrong....Yes.....No way! I would never!!.....No, I'm not getting arrested!......No, I found a hand....YES!!!A HAND!!!Please! I'll call ya when I get there! Bye!" She snapped it down. "Ready."
Then they set off.
When they got there Shona was taken into a room.
She sat down; and the questioning began.
"Did you see where the hand came from?"
"No, I saw it beside the path a screamed for help."She replied.
"Did you cut off the victims hand?"
"Did you see anyone walking away from where you found the hand?"
"No, I didn't."
And they just went on and on and on! By the end of the whole thing, she felt like she was going to collapse.
She walked out into the reception.
"SHONA!!!"Her mum cried.
"I'mtiredmum takemehomeplease."She mumbled. Her words came out in a garbled mush.
"Okay, honey....We'll talk about it in the morning."
But little did they know they wouldn't get a chance....
