Hi Kelley. This was just so shocking. Must have been terrible. Really crazy people out there. The fear factor must have gone of the scale for you. I know it is hard to write about dramatic things which really happen to ourselves but you did an amazing job. I cringed thinking about how this took place. Sorry you had to experience it. Hope all is better for you now.
Really excellent write. Keep up the good work. Susan :)
Thank you Susan!
I thought that guy was either going to knock my teeth out, or throw me into his car!
It made me angry that he could say such terrible things, and couldn't handle a remark back!
I'm not in danger anymore.
Yes Kelley, a dramatic write about a scary incident. I think you've done a great job here relaying it - and I like your bit of "side-play" about the prayer for beautiful women - the first time I've seen beauty as a disadvantage!
Sorry, haven't the time to explore novels right now but I may at some later date. Welcome to booksie.
Thank you AnnaT thanks so much for taking the time to read, and respond, and also for the welcome. :-)
"the first time I've seen beauty as a disadvantage!"
This makes me happy, that you see it in another light.
I'm not beautiful, by any means.
I don't know why these men pursued me so bad, other than I really do feel, God or Karma was teaching me a lesson, to never mock a prayer.
One man was a killer, after me.
The other wanted to kill me.
If you want to skip all the harrasment, I went through, please read "A Dangerous Man", and "The Arcade" (I'll be posting it soon).
"The Arcade" is how everyone in the place came together with military precision, and helped me to escape from one of them.
Thank you so much!
Wow. Very well written, Kelley! I'm sorry you had to go through this, though, and I'm glad you're not in danger anymore.
On a side note, I'm pretty sure that when the "Mr. Clean" dude said to "never do that again", he was talking about how you told those guys in the car to "Go to Hell". Ironically, it would seem that he was kinda right, since you say you have done the same thing on a few other occassions, and it seemed to make it worse... (no offense, I don't say that to be mean or anything. I'm just saying)
You are totally right!
I only did it twice, the one in this story (which should have been chapter 1 to Stalked!).
And in Stalked!
I was cat-called late at night last year (walking home from the hospital my Mom was in).
They were horrible (and frightening) with what they yelled at me.
I kept my head down, and didn't respond to them, I whispered a discription of the vehicle to my friend on my cell phone (I'm glad I was on the phone).
So yes, Mr. Clean was right!
Keep your head down and your mouth shut!
But be aware, and get a description of the jerk(s), you might need it.
In case you wonder why I fear men and the attention I get.
I know first hand what it feels like to have a stranger get out of his care, come up behind you, grab you, and try to force you into his car. I was lucky! I managed to get away.
(This was in front of two friends, in the late afternoon.)
I am considering writing about it.
Thank you so much for reading, and taking the time to comment!
Thank God that "Mr. Clean" was walking down the sidewalk that night. What kind of A-hole just jumps out of a car and starts chasing a girl anyway?!? If there's one thing i've learned... karma will bite him on his ass. Hard. That is... if it hasn't happened already. Keep writing. You have some interesting stories! :) ..and I want to read them.
Thank you for reading!
I look forward to reading more of your writing as well!
Yes, I was lucky that "Mr. Clean" was walking toward me that night!
I agree, I believe Karma will get him, because I can tell he was a very abusive jerk.
I wouldn't be surprised if he's spent time in jail for spouse abuse, and has had many restraining orders against him.
