I ran through the town in the dead of night. I threw Mrs. Annigan’s hat on the ground, hoping she would see it and go for it instead of me!
I ran helplessly in the dark who knows how long. All of the sudden I didn’t hear any footsteps behind me. Had I lost Mrs. Annigan? Yes! I did!

Mrs. Annigan’s face, barely able to be seen by the moonlight, was scowling back at me.
“Tonight,” she announced. “WE END THIS.” She gripped my neck.
All of the sudden, we heard, “STOP IN THE NAME OF THE LAW!”
