“Anna Sweetheart” - Yeah that’s my name.I’m 17 year old and live in a small town with my family, at least half of it is mine..
My dad was divorced when I five year old and remarry when I was seven.He was everything to me until “her” step in and take my dad away..
About my mom huh ..? I just know that she’s beautiful woman and I don’t even remember her face that well, she pass away after they're divocied.My dad doesn’t talk about her much.Every time I asked him , the answer is the same :”She is a beautiful woman , and she love you.” Until now I can’t understand why she said she love me but she doesn’t want to live with us...
Present Time :
I was at a deep and long sleep until I heard my step-mother uglies voice. I were dreaming about my family , my mom , my dad and I. We’re happy in it.
“ Anna ! Get down here or not ?! You gonna late for school again and I not gonna taking any bullshit reason of you again !”
‘Skanks’ - I thought and tired leaving my bed.Slowly picking up my uniform and walking to the bathroom.
“Oh holy cow , I look like shit”
My mouth speaking as I take a look of myself in a mirror: dirty hair , yellow teeth , smell breath , .. ugh ! Gonna fix that fast if I don’t want to make a storm in my house.
After cleaning myself up , I walking downstair.Diane aka step-mother is waiting to “have a word” with me.
“Finally , miss little brat take long enough to come and go to school!”
Her spoke as her finger pointing at me.I roll my eyes and said :
“Yay !At least I was coming , don’t have to be a snake to me”
As my word hit her , she storm in my face with her anger and raise her hand to slap me.
"Bitch , I don't remarry your old man for this !"
'Way to go this perfect morning' - I thought to myself and glared at her as I hold my cheek.
"Fuck you! Can't belived my dad was so blind to marry a slut like you."
As I grab my bag and skip breakfast , I decided to walk to school. I don't really live far away from the highschool actually it's just ten minutes away. I put on my headphones and started listening to some Alan Walker music.I was walking when suddenly someone hit my shoulder.
"Hey ya been busy huh ?"
Turning my back and see , its John who is my step-brother.He gave me a smile.
"Did my mother give you a hard time again ?"
"Duh ! Its obvious"
I take off my headphones and roll my eyes with him.He scratches his head and laughs it off
"I still not understand why she is acting like that.Maybe is because after our father pass out-"
"HEY DUDE! SHUT THE FUCK UP!"
I give him a death stare.I hate it when he talk about my dad.
"I love you as a brother so no need to 'talking' the past in here , ok ?"
He look down to the ground and walking by my side.I know that he tried to cheer me up since Dad pass away and I alway treat him like shit.An awkard silence keep goin' on till he and I finally on highschool.Stepping on the grass , John silent and walk to his locker.I think how the way I treated him and he treat me back and suddenly I speak up : "Hey John , see you after class.I'll make it up to you.."
Yeah and he smile , again.Waving his hand and walk to his friend.I open my locker take some book out of it and think what to do with my life.Few footstep walk to me , slap into my locker and giggles.
"Bitch ! Why you so early ?"
It's David and Charlie , #BFF .Charlie showed her phone to you and giggles.I look at her confuse.
"Hurry ! Read the text !"
Charlie - Hey I miss u boo :'( . 07:28
Mr. Ives - Me too babe but i'm busy right now . 07:30
Charlie - But i miss you :( Pick me up after school ? . 07:34
Mr. Ives - Ok baby <3 . 07:35
"That's our new teacher isn't it ?!" - I sigh and put my hand on my forehead. Charlie alway do crazy stuff like hooking up with teacher. - "Are you serious , Charlie ? If you got caught it not be pretty you know ?"
"Screw the rule! He worth it !"
Charlie waved his hand and did not seem to notice my warning.I look at David , he seem no comment with her.Crazy girl..
"I'll wait till I say 'I told you so' with you miss."
And I rolls my eyes.As I finish my sentence the bell rang.David was with me because we had the same class and charlie went to the toilet.
"Cya in lunch !" - She waves
I nod slightly and walk to class.We're arrived to your class with couple minutes to spare and all of your classmates in their books , our teacher already in class.She notices me and glares.
"Miss.Sweetheart you late , again ?!"
"Jezz just late few minute it's not big deal.."
She spank her ruler hard into table and point it at me.
"Detention after school!"
I stood there speechless while the mean girls sat and laughed and pointed at me.Ugh..I mean, today is the first day of my last year and it was bad like this ? Don't know what's worse yet? I frowned at the teacher's with attitude and went to my seat.Blonde hair girl, Brittany - who is mocked me extremely loudly with her friends.
"After the summer you still late like that huh Anna ?"
"So what ? Mind your own bussiness."
"Hey , no need to angry.Beside that was friend do, just friends ask each other . It will make your face have wrinkles if you angry like that.Opps.. It does not matter how you care how much wrinkles you have on your face? You just stay at your home and reading some creepy dark shit anyway!"
She giggle.I feel uncomfortable but decided be a bigger person , silent and let her doing her thing...
Then the two classes passed quickly, so quick than I can feel like I been getting older like 10 years.Grab my book , phone and I walk out of class.
LUNCH TIME :
The cafeteria is full of students sitting at the table and talking,I looked around to find David and Charlie and I see David waved at me.I have a tray of food and move to him.
'Why is there only David sitting here?' - I think.
"Hey where is Charlie ?" - I bite the fruit and ask him.David expressed frustration and answered:
"The hell should I know ?"
"Whoa ! Hey I'm just asking , why you mad at me ?"
His attitude makes me curious, it's just a question.
"Sorry.. My girl friends just broke up with me. And Charlie is going with her lover boy."
David tiredly stirred the can of water, he does not even touch his food.Poor golden boy..
"Hey . I didn't know .." - I patted his shoulder
"It's not your fault . Sorry for get mad at you .."
"It's ok , you got me.How about going out tonight ? My treat !" - I cheered him up.
He nodding slightly and begin to eat his lunch.I look at him , smile.I have a crush on him since 8 grade when he moved to the house opposite my house.That when we first met and he's my first crush..
Charlie and I have a "girl code" that : Do not love bestfriend-ex yeah since she is dating with him and I never seem to have a chance.
So the time flys by and we end the school.I walk out of school and see John is waiting for me outside.Seem like the boy couldn’t get enough of me , pff.
”Hey you , you know the ‘popular girls’ didn’t like you walking with me so why still wait for me huh ?”
”I couldn’t wait to tasted you again..”
He lean to my shoulder and whipser to my ears.Whooozz.. His voice make me turn on so much.
”Hey no funny business till tonight .” - I rolls eyes and turn cold even tho I’m thirsty AF.Even tho I don’t have a feelings for him or him have feelings for me, at least I think so.
”Fine..” - He mumble and grab by my hand sudenlly.I took my hand back.Why ? Because I don’t want the “incest” tag in my name by the mean bitch created..
We’re walking peacefully till we see the bully in our street and John stop walking.
”Maybe we should go other road..”
"What ? Wh-"
Before I finish it , he pull me into another road near pine forest.The road is empty , it seems no one passes by here.John is acting very weird.
"Hey I don't like this road, why don't we go the road just then?"
He is sweating avoid eye contact with me.
"There are bullies standing in that way , we shouldn't bother them. Um.. I mean should not stick to trouble , yeah ?"
"Fuck them ? Why do you care ?!"
I frowned and felt cold as I crossed the edge of the forest, I don't like this feeling at all.Feel like someone is watching me in the woods.John silent and walking faster.Wonder did he make some trouble with those bully..Anyway that is not my business.
The feeling of cold spine is getting stronger.Surely someone is watching me, I can feel it.We nearly reaching our home , according to the response i ran fast to my house leaving John behide. Slowly I raised my head and looked out the window at what was watching me.It seem like a human , wearing a brown jacket .As soon I took a picture of that person , there is no sigh of him or her standing there anymore..
Chapter 2: Who are you ?
Sorry if I post this too slow, too busy with school hehe.
(See the end of the chapter for more notes.)
I breathe a sigh of relief when that person is gone.John followed me, he finally came home. Close the door near me he asked: "Are you okay? Why suddenly run a circuit home like a ghost chasing? ".I looked at the window again to see if the person had left and as I thought the person has disappeared.john looked at me in confusing way, he looked in the direction that I was looking at the forest.
"you alright ?" - he ask
”Huh? Ah ! Ye-yeah i’m fine.Just zoned out a bit haha..”
”Okayy...?Then I'll go play soccer with my friends for a while, you stay at home trying not get her to yell at you okay? See you tonight."
Kissing my forehead, John went into his room to change his clothes and ran outside.I went upstairs and entered my room and closed the room without making a sound to let my stepmother not know that I was home.I changed and jumped onto the bed.'here is no place as good as in my room'Since my father died I no longer communicate much. The person I talk to the most is John, but he is not a worthy person to open my heart.I don't even know what my reason for living is ..Holding my face down on my pillow, something suddenly pressed against my chest.My mother's necklace. A memorial for me to remember her. Why did she leave me? I have been wondering for years. My father tried to give me love but maybe it wasn't enough. My mother's lack of love felt my soul was empty, day after day I just repeated my schedule. : wake up, go to school, go home.My life is so boring, I wish someone killed me to see how many people weeping for my loss.Thinking about it, I fell into a deep sleep when I didn't know it. I just knew that when I woke up in the sky it was darkening.I was awakened by my stepmother's call.
"Anna come down here and eat damn your dinner ! I won't call for the second time."
"I heard you! No need to scream like that!" - I answered and rolled my eyes.
I took off the necklace and hung it on the edge of the mirror then go downstairs.The atmosphere of dinner is as heavy as ever, no one talks to each other so John decides to break the silent and talk to his mother.Ask her how her day is and then ask my story,part I don't care much just answer the question and finish my meal.I put dishes and sinks and went upstairs, tonight I don't have to wash dishes.On the way up the stairs I suddenly realized my room was bright. 'I turned off the light before going down?'.Suddenly, when I walked closer to my room, I heard noises in my room.Slowly I went up and tiptoed each toes without making a sound, I opened my door and what I saw was my necklace lying on the ground.'Probably the wind or my cat dropped it on the ground' - I thought and went to the room to pick it up.
"Why did you fall down here?"- I muttered.
As I bent down to pick it up, I saw a leg of someone standing behind me.I was about to turn to grumble at John that he came here too soon and suddenly the man grabbed me and covered my mouth.The knife was beside my neck. A husky voice whispered into my ear: "Don't do anything stupid, this knife will cut your neck in a nice way."He slowly closed the door and only me and him in the room,I trembled, chilling out my spine.
"Listen to me and you won't die, okay?"
I nodded slightly.His hand held tight so I couldn't move.
"This necklace, where did you get it?Answer me now!"
"I-I-..." - I stammered, mumble every sweat is dripping down ,in my head praying I would be fine.’David will come over to my house anytime, soon I will get out of here ..’
"Answer me now! I don't waste any time! You don't want your throat to be cut open don you?” - Saying that, he pressed the knife closer to my neck. He didn't joke about the intention to kill me.
"It is my mother's necklace, she has given it to me since I was young ... I-I ..." - I said.
After hearing my answer he seemed to loosen his hand from my body.His mouth muttered: ‘It can't be .. Why ?????’ Then suddenly he removed the knife. Put the knife out of my neck and whip around me to face him.His face was pale white,black and long hair hung down and covered almost half of the face.His mouth ... a scary smile on his face like someone made it in half.The eyes have no eyelids to reveal the white eyes staring at my face.His face is very stressful.The hoodie was bloody and sticky, the smell of blood rushed into my nose, it was disgusting.Then I lowered my face in fear..
"You lied to me!" - He screamed and my face,Don't know tears or sweat from his face flushed.
"W-what?" -I was stunned, could see the blood vessels floating on his forehead
"TELL ME WHERE DID YOU GET THIS NECKLACE FROM? DON'T FUCKING LIE TO ME, I'M LOSING MY PATIENCE !"
He banged hard on the wall, causing me startled, the other hand still holding the knife as if to stab me.Looking at his face, I find something very frightening ... It makes you feel a shiver in your bones.
"LOOK AT ME WHEN I'M TALKING TO YOU !" - said, he squeezed my face tightly and directed my face to look at him,his face is very angry .The other hand raised the knife to attempt to stab me.
Maybe I'll die here ..Negative thoughts keep appeared in my mind.Fear, my tears welled up every tear runs down the cheekbones.I trembled looked at his face one last time and closed my eyes wait to die....
But... the atmosphere was silent,he hasn't killed me yet? I opened my eyes slowly,my eyes blurred because of tears and I looked at him.Something has stopped him ? His mouth muttered something, speechless.His face was no longer tense; instead, he showed a painful sadness.
"Rose..I-I......" - He muttered with a surprised face - "No no .. this can't happen, You are dead already!"
'What the hell is he talking about? Rose? Who is that ?' I thought
Suddenly there was a knock on my door.
"Anna, are you in there? What's wrong? I heard strange action causing a loud noise in your room"
It was John, when I was about to open my mouth to speak, that man covered my mouth.Holding the knife near my neck, signaling not to allow me to say anything.
*KNOCK KNOCK* ;The knocking of the door keep sounding
"Hey answer me! Are you in the room ??"
The atmosphere in my room is still quiet. My life is now very fragile .. if I speak up then maybe he will kill me right away but if I don't say anything, John will go away and my percentage survived is very small.
"I'm going in !"
Then the door burst open, John rushed in and looked at me.But he, the murderer who has get out of the house, was very quick by the window.I cried and broke down.John looked at me, my hair was messy, my clothes were messy, my face was red because I had been squeezed earlier.
He rushed to help me.
"What happened ?"
I couldn't help but cry. I don't know if my tears of happiness have escaped death or tears due to fear surround me.John looked out of my window that had opened wide as if he understood something and hurriedly helped me up.
"Let's go to my room, will we talk later?"
John's voice reassured me. I nodded and stood up and followed him into his room..
Locking the window and taking something to block, he checked the window lock for the second time to make sure.Look at me worriedly.
"Take a break," - he said - "I'll lock your room and come back to the room."His distorted smile tried to reassure me then he left the room.I lay down on the bed with anxious thoughts, i still hold tight my mother's necklace.
' Who is he? Will he come back to kill me ? '
Finally, it is done, episode 2: D
Chapter 3: Sally
NOPE ! No summary for this chapter ;)
BAM ! HELLO and i'm back :D
Waking up in a terrible headache even though I was lying on a soft bed tired sitting up John did not lie next to me, he took pillows and blankets to lie on the ground last night.'Yesterday's story .. did it really happen? The man broke into my room ..'My whole body ached, my wrists were bruising.So it happened last night.It's real.I was thinking then John suddenly woke up.
"Do you wake up early? Sleep well?"
I didn't answer just nodding lightly.
"It's good. If you feel unwell then you can stay home, I'll tell mom and give you a day off."- Another nod,John looked at me worriedly but then he didn't say anything to bother me any more.
"U-um..I should go to school, stay well!" - John said, awkward then quietly walked out of the room and closed the door.
I lay down again to rest, downstairs I could hear my stepmother grumbling about it was just the second day that I was off.I had no strength but I could not lie on the bed and starve to death, so I decided to get up and go down to breakfast even though she would grumble at me all day.Trembling, I stepped down from the bed walking step by step.The mind is heavy with thoughts.
After breakfast, I returned to my room where John had locked the window.I opened my phone and checked my facebook then I found an article that caught my eye.I clicked on it and the subject line was "There was a murder in street X, the whole family was killed but it seems the killer" spared "or missed a 4-month-old baby".Street X..street X ... it's right near my house! My nose is not wrong when I smell the fishy smell around my room yesterday .. Could it be him kill that family?Thinking for a while I continued to pull down and read."Currently the police have not identified the identity of the killer. Everyone should check your home lock to prevent intruders, prevent loss of wealth or affect your life."
I was thinking deeply, when an incoming call startled me and almost dropped my phone.It's David calling,don't know what's going on.
"Sorry, I was busy yesterday so I couldn't get to your house"
"It's okay",I said with a sigh and think David didn't show up and if John didn't come into my room yesterday, maybe the next day my death would be put on the newspaper.
David seemed hesitant. "Is it true that you are not angry with me?You are angry with me aren't you ? So you just quit school today, right?" - He said in a phone, he chuckled
"Don't be too proud of yourself. I just stay because I'm not feeling well." - I also giggled
"So what do princess want to eat after school?" - David's voice was sarcastic but lovely.It seemed like all the heavy thoughts in my head dissipated when I heard David's voice.
"A pizza would be nice"
"You've got yourself a pizza. So that's a deal then I'll visit you with Charlie! See you after school." - Then the bell rang and David hung up.I suddenly felt extremely disappointed when David mentioned Charlie's name.Always Charlie is never me. I, Charlie and David have known each other since childhood.Charlie knew that I liked David but maybe I was a bit slow to be in love so Charlie and David had a date first. Even though they were separated now, David always wanted to return to her.Anyway, it can't be helped, because I decided to stay behide.And then the day kept going, I didn't want to stay in the room, so I decided to wear a jacket and go out to find fresh air.In the afternoon, it was near, outdoors was like a bright red and everyone was walking back and forth on the street. How peaceful it was.I walked close to a park and quietly sat on a nearby chair.
Then suddenly I saw an adult talking to a girl in a pink dress, she looks uncomfortable the face was extremely frightened.Then suddenly, there was another woman talking to the man near little girl.I think they are her parents but everything makes me doubt by the strange behavior of the woman.She pulled her hand so hard that the little girl skirt was deflected to one shoulder and her bear fell to the ground.She cried out, shaking her hand away from the woman. The man who saw it grabbed her other hand.I quickly stood up and ran to her.Seeing me come running, she seemed to be able to catch the life buoy because she screamed but the people didn't seem to notice her because they thought it was just their parents teaching their child.
"S-Sister please help me..I-I didn't know them, they kept saying they were my parents .." - Sobbing with the tears she said
"This is not your business, go away" - Still speaking with that calm voice, she tried not to catch everyone's attention.
"Let her go now!" - I resolutely and firmly grasped her hand and the girl clasped my hand firmly and refused to let go of my hand.
When they heard my loud voice, the people on the road seemed to pay attention to them. That made the other man stand still and the woman sweated.Some people approached near me to find out what was going on.Luckily, there was a blonde policewoman passing by.
"Hey, what's going on here?" - She asked.
"No problem, ma'am, we are only going to bring our daughter home, we don't want any trouble right, darling?" - With a distorted smile she looked at the policewoman in hopes of escaping this, at the same time signaled to the man to do what she said.
The policewoman turned to look at me and glanced at the little girl and finally looked at the girl's dress and bear on the ground.The expression looked suspicious at the couple, the man finally spoke up.
"Yes .. That's right .. we just want to bring our daughter home ... suddenly this girl comes running and grabs my daughter's hand. We don't know her at all." -They turned me into a bad guy, fuck..Perhaps the police did not believe them, I thought and made eye contact with little girl.
Not believe the words of the man, the policewoman asked to sit down and ask her.
"Do you know these people? No need to be afraid, I'm here and no one will harm you ok ? As long as you answer me honestly everything will be resolved faster, you ok with that ?" - She turned to look at me and nodded to the police.
"I only know her, the other two are going to take me away." - Saying that, she pointed directly at the faces of the other two.Surprisingly surprised them, the woman grinned.
"What are you talking about? I'm your mother, don't talk ridiculous to the police.You don't want her to misunderstands me won't you?" - She placed her hand and squeezed little girl shoulder.
"Miss, I'm talking to her, please keep quiet." - It seems that the police have observed the strange behavior of the woman, she said."I need you to tell me the truth."
The little shook her head at the policewoman "No, I don't know those adults, and this is my sister"; and she pointed at me,it surprised me.
"Alright, please take your sister home. Two people,you gonna come with me and have some explanation to do."
Then the police took them away, leaving only me and the little girl.She looked at me affectionately. "Thank you for helping me," she said.
"Oh yeah, it's nothing. Where's your house so I can take you home?" - I asked her but then she shook her head and refused.
"You really are like her, Anna...."
"What did you just say ?"
"No, I didn't say anything ... Anyway ,thank you for helping me. I'm going home now! See you again, Anna .."
Saying that, she waved and went away to the back of the park. It was weird. I didn't tell her my name so why did she know..?
Chapter 4: "Long time no see , Princess."
Hi ! Check out new story in my profile , you might like it .
A week later ...
I went to school like normal days, everything went back to normal and no longer had strange things since the day I met that little girl.John and I are in good term but we didn't talk much ,at least that is what I wanted.I don't want us to be too close,I'm afraid John will have feelings for me.The new thing is that I went to work part-time to earn money for myself and not depend on my stepmother and that made me and John talk less and it didn't make him think that I was avoiding him.
After school :
Charlie and David were in the car waiting for me at the gate , they often give me a lift to work since I don't have one and I don't want to bother John.I walked into the car in the back seat, Charlie was texting someone and smiling and David watched me step by step until I settled my seat.
" Hey David, can you drive me home quickly and bring Anna to work later ? I'm in a hurry." She took her eyes off her phone and turned to speak to David.David nodded slightly and turned the car right.
We went for a while to Charlie's house, she hurried out of the car but did not forget one of David's cheeks and said goodbye to us.Does she need to do that ? I rolled my eyes in annoyance but didn't say anything, I kept silent until David drove me to where I worked then quickly I left his car, didn't say goodbye.David is not my boyfriend and I know I don't have such a right to be angry but I can't help myself with my feelings for David.
I went into the back door for staff , changed my uniform and went to the store , changed the shift for the previous staff.
"Hey girl ! Finally you're here so I can end my shift !" The Asian girl working with me named Jasmine tired face suddenly brightened up when she saw me.
"Sorry for being late" I said but she waved her hand and smiled and told me
"At least you came so there's no problem.Anyway, I'm going home now ! Byee" She reached for her bag and said goodbye to me.I guess there's only me in the store.
Few hour later : Closing time
Soon , its time to close the shop, I went around checking the store,all the bill and sending money back to the owner.The owner received the money and left at the same time, I stayed to clean up and when I was about to close the store bell rang, a guest dressed discreetly entered, I hurriedly stood up and asked.
"Welcome to Belle's store, how can I help you?" With a big smile on my mouth but the stranger stood in front of me didn't say anything. I could hear a gasp behind the mask and the gaze stared at me behind the sunglasses.The atmosphere is as thick as you can cut it with a knife.He stood staring at me for a moment and went deep into the stalls.
'What's wrong with him?' I think.
A moment later the strange guest appeared in front of me , put in front of me a kitchen knife and threw moneys on the table to pay for the knife.That is so rude.
"Let me give you the bill.." I quickly entered the code of the knife, got his money and gave him the bill.
I reached out my hand and handed the person the bill.Suddenly he took my hand and pulled him back to him , the force was too strong for me to react and it almost made me fall.
"What are you doing ?! Let me go!" I tried to regain my balance, shouted and take my hand away from him.
"As I thought ... You have it." He chuckled and pointed at my wrist and suddenly I felt a burning pain then he released my hand and left the store.
After he left, I sat down and hugged my wrist in pain .I look down at my wrist to see what hurts me but nothing but a sign on my hand is a circle with an "X" drawn through it.Has it just appeared on my wrist? I tried to scratch it out of my hand but it was not useful, it was like a tattoo.What the hell just happened ?
David's car horn startled me, I quickly closed the front door and went to the staff door and meet up with him.
"What took you so long ?" he ask
"Ah, I'm busy cleaning the store." For some reason, I decided not to tell David about the stranger and the mark on my wrist.
"Okay ??" he answered and waited for me to put on my seat belt and then start the car.
We have nothing to say to each other so on the way there is only a sound coming from the radio.I was sleepy and rubbed my eyes when David suddenly took his voice and was about to say something.
"Anna, can I talk to you? I-I mean I can talk to you anytime but this is important a-and I want to say it so..." David's voice is a little nervous ,now he seems to be blushing unlike David I know ,he faltered and was embarrassed to say anything.
"Alright you big dork. So what do you want to talk about ?" I feel so funny looking at David like that.
He parked near a sidewalk and took off his seat belt and turned to look at me and its make me nervous ...He moves closer to me , my heart is beating faster when he face to face to me, I can feel his breath under my neck.My face is burning up when I saw his eyes staring at my lips.It's he making a move on me ?
He stares into my eyes and smiles.I am sure what will happen next. I looked back, breathless and longing for that kiss.He lean toward me then all I know is that suddenly we were kissing ,my mind blanked out and the world was a whirlwind..I used to kiss other boys but with David it was different..It was a gentle kiss :no tongue, no groping, no gasping, no moaning, no frantic twisting of the head with lips crushing..just soft and slowly
"I really like you.." He whispered under his breath but that sweet kiss was interrupted by the sound of my phone call.
* PHONE RINGS *
I tried to ignore the noise of the phone but couldn't, someone called me as if my phone about to explode.I had to break that kiss in regret even though I wanted more..I bit my lower lip and looked for the phone in my bag, my step mom is calling me.Damn it! I got angry but tried not to show to let David see.
"What is it Diane ? " , I raised my voice in anger.
"Where the hell are you !? Do you know what time it is? "
"Huh? Where did this come from? Since when did you care about me ? " I ask with a sarcastic surprise voice.
"That is none of your business, going home right now or you won't be having dinner !" Diane said and turned off the phone. 'Way to go the good night' , I thought and put the phone away.
"Sorry , duty call ."
"No no it's fine , I understand.." he still blushed and answer me.
"Let's me get you home , you seem tired.Plus its will rain soon"
And David drove me home, we didn't say anything to each other, but by just looking at each other's eyes and thinking about the last kiss was enough..About half an hour later we stopped in front of my house, David got up and got out of the car and opened the door for me.We talked for a minute or two then David kissed me on the cheek , hesitatingly scratching his head, David said
"G-good night , Anna .."
" Night , David. See you tomorrow.." Then I waved goodbye to him and waited until the shadow of his car fades away after dark.I quietly entered the house, humping a happy song.
As I entered the house ,I softly closed the door, not letting Diane wake up because if she woke up in the middle of her sleep she would grumble till the morning and I wouldn't get any sleep like at all.I turned on the light in the kitchen and opened the refrigerator but it was empty. I became furious and bit my lower lip in the hope of finding something in the kitchen cupboards but in the end, there was nothing to eat.
" Damn it ! It's in the middle of the night! Who wants to sell fucking food now?" Frowning, I slammed the refrigerator door and I poured a cup of water to drink to forget the hunger. Maybe tomorrow I'll eat .
Tired as I walked up the stairs to my room, as soon as my head touched the pillow, my eyes seemed to be heavy and I fell asleep immediately.But before I could sleep, I was awakened by the knock on my door.The knock on the door was very small, but it kept going so hard that I couldn't sleep, so I stood up and opened the door but there is no one out there.I went back to bed , a moment later the sound knocking on the door knock again.I opened the door, but there was still no one.
" It's NOT FUNNY at all , John! " I shouted out in anger and closed the door to my room and went back to bed, but that knock was not John.. I realized this when I saw a person sitting on my bed..
"Long time no see , Princess." He said..
Chapter 5: "As long as I'm here, no one can hurt you."
New friend ? Old memories.
Thanks you for sticking up with me :D
Sorry for took too long to write this , honestly I too busy with my life but I will try to finish this as soon as possible. :D
My heart felt like jumping out when I saw a figure sitting on my bed.What the hell ? I nervously took a step toward my bed. Is he him again? No, it's not ... this voice is a different person ..As I got closer to the bed, I could see his face through the light of the moon outside the window.He has a strange white mask with black eyes and lips .. I realize that I've seen this mask before.He got up from his bed and approached me, the tall, thin figure wearing an orange hoodie with black pair pant and sneakers.I stepped back until my back touched the wall of the room. He walked very spontaneously, without any haste. The moon shone back against him, his shadow seemed to cover my whole body. In that moment I felt myself so small in my room.My door and I were only inches apart if I were fast I could ..I looked at the doorknob, yes I can do it.I moved quickly and reached for the doorknob and twisted it, the light of the corridor crept slowly through the crack of the door but it didn't open long and big enough, the man hastily stopped me from opening the door with his hand.I turned to look at him in fear, why did weird thing happen to me ... what did I do?
"Hush .. why are you doing that ? Don't you remember who am I ? "
My eyes widened at him and my feet trembled in fear. I could see his dark brown eyes behind the mask looking at me with sad, confused eyes and his breath smelled of alcohol.I stammered, my breathing become heavy when I saw the crowbar being held in his other hand.My window was pulled out by that crowbar.I bit my lip so hard as if I could taste the blood as he ran his finger across my face.What the fuck is he talking about?
"Why won't you say anything? Are you afraid of me?"
He whispered under the mask, his eyes still watching me.I .. I am afraid of him, I am afraid of death. I don't know who he is. He was a lunatic rushed into my room and said sweet words and waited for me to answer them.How the hell can I answer? One word wrong, the crowbar will hit my head when I didn't expect it.Suddenly the dark clouds came and hid the moonlight and started to rain.It started to rain harder, the sound of thunder and lightning louder.If I screamed, nobody even heard me.I swallowed nervously, trying to answer ..
"Maybe you can't remember the first time we met, right? Interesting memories. Here." He interrupted me and removed his mask from his face, "It's me, you remembered?" I looked at him, an ordinary man, quite handsome with brown hair but something very strange..oddly strange. It gives me goosebumps and makes the hair on the neck stand up when I look at him. The unstable is appeared in his eyes.I shook my head slightly, I didn't recognize who he was or I didn't know he mistook me for someone else and I couldn't pretend to be the one he got wrong.He was dumbfounded in despair, "But..but you have a necklace..and..and you have a symbol..I know it's you."He isn't the same like he was at first, or rather he was in a panic attack. He said and pulled my hand to see the scar.He was looking at the symbol that I just had today, when the stranger touched my wrist.He looked at my wrist and turned to look at me as if waiting for me to remember something.But the wait was silent in vain because I really didn't understand anything.
" You stole it, didn't you? Fucking fan girl." He raised an angry voice, the other hand raised the crowbar as if to beat me.I shouldn't explain to the person who was going to kill me, what the hell am I thinking? I feared, my tears rolling down my cheeks, the thunderstruck loudly in the sky, making the scene become more and more horror.He put on the mask again, that's when I knew the bad signal..He raised the crowbar ready to smash me,his other hand pulling my face to see me better ,tears streamed down my cheeks I bit my lips and waited for a miracle to happen but there is no such thing as a miracle.
"N-no please.." I sobbed and muttere when he was looking at me through that blank mask.He suddenly hesitated and drop the crowbar.
"Don't joking around anymore..STOP MESSING WITH MY HEAD ! You're dead ! " He groaned and hit himself on the head and then collapsed to the ground.This was my chance, I looked out the door and grabbed the handle to open the door. When I was about to leave the room, I heard his cry.The cry was small but I can hear and feel how he was in pain.My mind is empty, should I help him? No ! The fuck am I thinking ? He was just about to kill me ..if I went back into the room and this was probably the stupidest decision I would regret.
"You're fucking dead.." he muttered repeatedly "Who am I kidding? Of course you're fucking dead !" He grabbed me by the shoulder and yanked me back into the room. He press me on the floor and he was angry and screamed.My stupid mistake of hesitating and now I have to exchange it with my life.He squeezed my face forcefully, "You're just the same face, you're not her."He looked at me with disgusting eyes holding up the crowbar and knocking down, I screamed and closed my eyes tightly but nothing happened. Who stopped him?
"Stop it Masky, you're drunk." I opened my eyes,another man wore a striped mask cover his mouth and a pair of goggles with bright yellow lenses gripped the man's hand tightly.The man named Masky swung his hands away from the man in a patterned sweater with greyish-brown striped sleeves.
"Fuck off Toby!" He raised a warning voice but the other man still refused.He turned and jumped into the other man and punched him in the face.Toby fell to the floor when he received a punch in the face and Masky turned to look at me and reached for the crowbar but then Toby regained his balance and rushed to grab him.
"Don't fucking touch her !" The man called Toby screamed and drag the other person away from me.The two of them rolled around and punched each other on the floor.They punched each other to the point that blood spattered the floor of my bedroom.I froze, my feet stiffened and I couldn't move. I could only watch the two men fighting without saying a word.A moment later Toby regained his advantage and he climbed on top of him and punched hard in the face.After Masky fainted ,he release him and lay down to breathe.My face was filled with terror.He splashed blood from his hand and walked over to me. He squats down and talks to me : "There there , I got you." He patted my shoulder to calm me down."As long as I'm here , no one can hurt you.So don't you worry ok ?" He told me in a calm and reassuring voice but I still couldn't be completely recovered, he just literally punched the man till him fainting.I nodded slightly to answer .Suddenly, he raised my sleeve and touched my shoulder, startling I back up away from him.His face was also surprised when I did, as if he had done this before.
"Sorry, did he hurt you somewhere?" Toby asked me with a worried voice.I shook my head, thankfully thanks to him I wasn't hurt.He let out a breath and plopped down on the ground with me precisely he is laying on the ground and panting hard."He is really strong, lucky he is drunk or I probably wouldn't able to fight him." He pulled the striped mask down to his chin and smiled as if he was familiar with it.I took a deep breath, then crawled close to Toby. "Why did you save me?" I asked. He looked at my face and didn't know how to answer.
"Just-just ..You are very much like an old friend of mine.That's all." He smiled to me ,other side of his mouth is deteriorated, exposing his teeth and gums.I don't know what happened to him but beside the incident earlier, I feel that he was quite friendly.
"Well..thank you." I smiled warmly, and he smiled again. It was raining heavily but the tense atmosphere in the room was no longer there.
"You're welcome. But we have another problem." His hand gently patted my shoulder to comfort.He said and pointed to the unconscious man on the ground ."Masky won't be out for much longer, so can you help me?"
He asked me innocently, I nodded even though I didn't understand what he meant to bring him anywhere else.He sat up and went to Masky and then lifted his legs, waiting for me to carry his hand.We carried Masky heavily, rather, I carried him heavily and Toby lifted Masky so lightly like nothing. Sometimes he walked too fast, I had to whisper so he could go slower.After a bit of struggling, we finally managed to lift Masky downstairs without making a sound.I opened the back door to avoid the front because there were neighbors who could see and they would talk shit with my stepmother again.
"That's fine, I'll have my friend carry him back. Thanks!" I carried him out into the yard when Toby stopped and said, In the distance there was another man wearing an orange hoodie covering his face and waving to Toby.He jumped over the wooden fence of my yard and helped Toby.I stood there until they had a black car parked near the road and they put Masky in the backseat and drove off toward the forest.I still see the figure of Toby waving at me at the back of the car.I locked the back door and went up to my bedroom when suddenly a medicine bottle rolled towards me.I picked it up and read it "Ibuprofen..hmmm". I muttered.Suddenly I remembered something, I suddenly took out my phone and looked at the pictures in my phone.It was him, the one who broke into my house today was the same person that I had photographed last week.What the hell is it ? Has he been following me for so long ??
I sat down on the bed and thought anxiously. I suddenly coughed, coughed constantly and felt like I was sick.Perhaps a sleep will make me feel better after what happened today.Crazy stuff..
