It was late
maybe about ten or eleven at night. The moon was shining bright
this late and I was headed home after partying, I was nearly at
my building, when i could see a dark figure that was standing in
the doorway. I couldn't make out any features except he had his
hands in his coat pockets. I thought to myself do I run, do I
walk away and don't look back and yet I didn't do any of them
I kept walking to the building. I walked right up to him as I got
closer I could make out his features honey brown hair that just
reaches his shoulders, his eyes were piercing blue, and he looked
like he hadn't shaved for 2 weeks he was hot.
I said low but he didn't move as even flinch.
going to move or am I going to have to push my way through" I
said starting to get frustrated.
"No need I'm
just waiting for someone" he said in a calmed tone.
you let me in I would like to lie down after the night I've just
had". I was already starting to get a hangover.
you in if you can tell me where to find the person I'm waiting
for" he asked.
starting to think this guy can't be serious he was asking for my
help at this time of night.
their name" I asked just wanting to have a shower and
He took out
a piece of paper from his pocket it looked like it had been wet
recently because it was all wrinkled, then he handed me the
paper. I took it hoping I can tell him who he was looking for and
he would be on his way, I looked at and he must have realized I
new the person because I was stunned at what I read.
"What do you
want with this girl" I asked my voice cracking.
"I need to
take her home you see she is my bride to be" he answered his
voice still calm.
sorry but I don't know this girl and even if I did I'm sure she
doesn't want to come home" I answered calmly as the lie rolled
off my tongue.
pushing past him but he is strong i kicked him in the shin he
moved to the side i took my opportunity and ran past him, not
looking back since i heard footsteps. I was going to take the
elevator since i would have to run up 4 flights of stairs, so i
didn't waste any time i ran up the first flight of stairs i
thought to myself how did he find me i have left a trace, what
have i done to be found and to find out he is my husband to be
what has my father done. I should of been paying attention to
where i was running i tripped on a step and fell down them
knocking over my husband to be.
I felt one
of my ribs crack and i hit my head hard on the concrete i heard
someone yell scarlet I haven't used that name in years maybe it
was that guy that was chasing me, but now he was hovering over
you may have broken a few ribs" he said
But I didn't
care I had to get away from him he knows my past, when he went to
call an ambulance I sat up hold my stomach I held the railing and
I stood up and as I did the elevator open lucky it was right next
to the stairs I walked slowly even though it still hurt I was in
and he was coming back I pushed the button the doors closed and I
was safe. For now.
