Just as I rounded the corner and began my walk down the hall, someone from behind me grabbed my arm. He whipped me around so that my back was up against his chest and began pulling me down the hall. Just a couple seconds passed before I heard him kick open the side door and drag me outside. Before I could think to scream or run, he whispered in my ear, “Keep quiet. No sudden movements, and this will all go a lot smoother. We don’t want to involve your friend Roger in this, now do we?”
I swallowed hard, my heart began to pick up speed, and I held my breath. The entire time I was panicking on the inside, trying to search my mind for things to do in a situation like this. But my mind was blank with fear.
“Shh, it’s all going to be okay,” he whispered again, dragging me out and into the dark alley. I quickly noticed the light rain falling onto my trembling body. I looked down toward the ground, searching for something—a glass bottle, a stick, anything to defend myself with. But nothing but darkness covered the ground. I held my head steady, remembering what he had said about no sudden movements. I reached my eyes right and saw nothing but street lights a few blocks away, a couple dumpsters, and a brick wall with graffiti on it.
My heart stopped. I was having a major case of déjà vu—but even worse. This was the vision I had had at the Harpers’ the afternoon I helped Abby choose paint colors.
“Ahh, much better,” he said as he whipped me around to face him. Fear gripped me. The moment our eyes locked together, my heart thudded loudly in my ears. I knew that I was in a lot more trouble than I could have ever imagined. It was not some stranger that had pulled me out into the shadows; it was the man that had been haunting me for weeks now. He was there, in the flesh, no longer a figment of my imagination.
Good one, huh!?
I haven’t read this one yet, but believe me when I say that I am going to :)
