Secrets always unravel in snow- Pt.4

The conversation explained how the police were catching on about all the kidnappings and how they weren't going to feed us anymore in hopes that everyone would die. I was shocked upon hearing this news and told many of the others. Soon enough everybody knew about it, and many had different ideas how to stay alive. For example: Some resorted to cannibalism, some tried to escape, some thought I had lied, and many killed themselves, because they thought it would be less painful than starving. I was part of the group of people who wanted to escape. Many of those who wanted to escape tried to kill the guards and make a run for it. One night, before I went to bed, I was thinking about my life before I was captured and thought a lot about my mother and how she would always braid my hair with her beautiful hands which were small and had a....I stood up in horror when I realised one of my mother's hands had a scar on it, but I'm sure that’s not what Maya was talking about in her last words.

The next morning, I executed my plan and it worked, I passed the guards and ran with Coco in my arms. It was very hard, because I had no clue where I was. When I escaped the building, I saw nothing but a big forest and a river. As I ran as fast as the wind into the forest, I noticed someone following me and soon after, suddenly I felt someone punching me in my back.
