Photo by Colton Kresser on Uplash~ Lile and his friend Victoria are out on a back road one night, when a car followed them.

Driving was easy for me. I drove out to the middle of nowhere that night. I took a back road with my friend, looking intently at the road in front of me in silence. I looked at her, and then back to the road.

She had her gaze fixed out the window, counting trees. She was a good gal. Her name was Victoria.

I was a male standing at 6ft. I was frail and skinny. My name was Lile.

I could tell Victoria was uneasy. I said nothing to comfort her. I had reassured her before we left that I knew those roads like the back of my hand. I took her by surprise, and took her down a familiar road.

“Thank you,” she breathed. No other cars were on the road in front of us, but as we went by a road, I saw the headlights of a car pull out behind us.

Victoria turned in her seat. She had really needed to chill out.

“Calm down,” I said, reassuring her yet again.

Victoria and I had been dating on and off. Right now, we were just going out as friends because of our differences. I couldn’t complain.

We continued on the long road, the car behind us still on our ass.

It had plenty of chances to pass us, but it just didn’t.

I turned to try to lose it, but it turned on the same street as us. I shrugged and continued. Victoria started freaking out, so I decided to take her home.

The thing was that it followed us all the way there, but quickly drove away when it saw us pull into her driveway.

She lived alone.

“Go in and lock your doors,” I stated to her.

She didn’t want to look at me because she knew. That was the last time I had ever saw Victoria again, and it was all my fault.

Those were my friends that were tailing us that night, and they killed Victoria. I asked them to because she kept breaking my heart.

To this day, I feel really bad.
