Wow Kelley. Well written and scary as heck. It must have been horrible. You get the prize for having the most chaos in you life. Good thing when you threatened him with the gun he left. I hate to think what he might have done to you. Leaves me feeling sad for you my friend. Susan :)
Thank you Susan,
It was horrible!
I never thought I'd have to defend myself that way!
I might rewrite a little, and add when Mom got home (I was falling asleep writing it this morning, after being awake all night.)
Remembering what I've been through; Yeah, I think I'd get the most chaos prize (only I can't prove it all).
If I asked my Mom if she remembered this, I'm sure she'd say 'No'.
I asked my sister if she rememebered what happened with Alex and the police.
She didn't remember it at all.
Thank you so much for reading and commenting!
Scary. It reminds me of when I stayed home sick from school. It was early in the morning about 7 am or a little earlier and my twin sister was leaving for school and my mom brought the phone with me so if someone called I wouldn't have to get up from bed. Just as my twin left the room the phone rang. I picked it up and answered it. It was a man's voice and at first I thought it was my dad, they asked if my mom was going to work and I said yes then they asked if I was going to school[ which now I find weird cause my dad didnt know i was sick so he would asume i would be going and he never asks anyway] any way i said i wasnt going to school and then they said aww your going to be home all alone well get well soon i love you. and they hanged up right away. after that i was left confused cause i knew it wasnt my dad because he never talks to me like that, he never says he loves me or anything. i was a freshman i think in high school and i remembered that before i started school, it was summer break and a man called and said how come i dont walk to school with my sister anymore and i thought it was a family member but it wasnt. and he told me that he wanted to go out with me and i said to not call back cuase i would call the cops and he said that he would see me and my twin walk to school everyday and he would pass by us. i was so paranoid that it was him who called that morning i was sick that i got a knife and had it with me all day [the doors are always locked]. i dont know what happened to him after that phone call i havent heard from him... maybe it was just a prank.
"and he would pass by us."
You should publish this! This is a NIGHTMARE!!!!
No, I don't think it was a prank, that was a stalker!!!
God, if anyone knows how I felt, you would!!!
It's probably more scary, because you didn't know what the guy looked like!
Did he ever call your twin?
How would you compare yourself to your twin?
I was introverted (Sweet, Quiet, Weak)
My twin was extroverted (Worldy, Confident, Strong)
I thought about writing about this after first reading this but I'm 19 now and that was 5 years ago when i was 14 and 15 i think. I don't remember the conversation word by word that i had with him the first time. He never called my twin because she never told me about it and im sure she would. I thought it might be a prank because when i answered the phone i said hello and he statrted talking to me and then asked my name. i gave it to him cause i thought he was family but then he started saying he wanted to go out with me and i said no and he said that no one has to know. I dont know what to make of that whole thing because he hasnt contacted me since then. and im not sure if it was him who called when i was sick. something weird happened a few days ago and i dont know if im going crazy or what but it creeped me out. and now i cant stop thinking about it and im alone and im getting scared =(
my twin is more talkitive, she likes meeting new people and hanging out in a big group, and i think shes prettier than me. shes had a few bfs in high school. and i've never had one till a few months ago but it didnt work out so im single now. he was the first guy to ask me out at 18 so yeah i dont consider myself pretty.
same here iam very antisocial. i get a bunch of anxiety when im out in public and i think im weak.
I was a lot like you then!
I didn't date in high school, my first 'real' date was when I was 18 (maybe 19), with Jamie.
My twin is prettier, much more sociable.
I also get a lot of anxiety, when I'm out in public.
Crowded restaurants are really hard for me.
I've been to two concerts in my life, I'd love to go to more, but I can't handle being around so many people!
I turned down a lot of wonderful oportunities, because of fear, and anxiety.
I want to note, I'm not beautiful, I believe I went through this, because of they way the percieved me.
I thought they were wrong...until I started writing this.
I noticed a pattern...I didn't report the incidents, in the majority of these incidents.
Thank you so much for commenting~
Wow we are alike! I've only been to one gig, it was for local bands and i felt so uncomftrable but i like going to gigs too.
yeah i never dated in high school either.
i also turned down a lot of wonderful oportunities saddly.
i want to be strong and everything but i dont know i try and somehow im back where i began.
same here i never reoprted what happened to me.
your welcome, kelley(= oh and i noticed you said you were learning stair way to heaven, i love that song and the band! such a beautiful song. take care kelley!
Yes we are alike!
It broke my heart, what you said about your Dad.
I know my Dad loved me (he would say it), but I rarely got to see him, and I don't think he showed it very much.
Even if you have to fake confidence (I did), don't miss oportunities that you really want to do! Go for it!
Makes me feel less of a weirdo knowing that you get me(=
Yeah i dont have that normal family and i didnt grow up like mostly everyone does. Some of my earlier poems talk about the relationship between my dad and me...well we didnt really have one...still kinda dont.
Yeah im starting to just try and fake my confidence and such. this july my twin and her boyfriend want to take me to an iron maiden concert and i really do want to go so im going to try to(=
I hope your relationship with your Dad improves!
Furthering your education will help your confidence also (big time)!
You should totally go!!!
Wow Kelley your life was really terrible. I couldn't imagine living in your shoes. xx Hugs xx
I had a few scary, terrible moments, but I also had a lot of good days to.
I'm still trying to figure out why I attracted so much trouble!
I hope you are doing well!!!
