Chapter One: Oh No Not Again
‘I’m running around the house, scared for my life, trying to find a place to hide. Just as I was about to make a run for the door I felt a sharp pain in my back. I screamed and drooped to the floor. Laying there on the hard, cold, wooden floor, in my own pool of blood. I felt the knife being pulled out of my back only to be stabbed with it again and again.’
‘I felt my body temperature drop, it was getting harder and harder to breathe, all the sounds started to blur together, my vision started to blur. This is it I thought, I’m dying. I felt myself being turned over to only see a pair of sad, chocolate brown eyes staring into my dying blue ones.’
‘The woman started to cry.’
“Oh my god baby! I’m so sorry.”
It’s okay, I forgive... I love you and.. I will always love you. ‘I managed to mutter out, even with all the pain I’m in’
‘Then I was consumed by darkness.’
‘I sprinted up out of bed, covered in cold sweat, gasping for air. It was only a dream.. but it felt so real.’
‘I’ve been having the same dream every night for months now. The only thing I can remember about my killer is the pair of chocolate brown eyes and the fact she apologizes every time she kills me.’
‘I ran a hand through my long, blonde, thick hair. I looked over at the clock and it flashed 4 am. I groaned.. it’s going to be a long night and I’m moving in the morning so I really need all the rest I can get. I grabbed a cigarette and lit it, I sat there thinking about the moving process tomorrow. Just thinking about it has me exhausted.. I sighed.. I finished my cigarette and went back to sleep. Preparing for the long day ahead of me tomorrow.’
‘I was laying on the couch cuddled up to my beautiful girlfriend Holland Taylor.’
“Babe, will you go cut me a piece of cake please?”
Anything for you baby.
‘I got up, gave her a quick kiss on the lips and made my way to the kitchen.’
‘As I was getting ready to cut the cake I seen the butchers knife laying there on the kitchen counter. The light reflecting off the slick, sharp blade. It’s like it was calling my name.’
‘I picked up the knife and looked at my reflection in it. Intrusive thoughts started entering my head. The blade was so sharp and Holland’s skin is so soft and tender. The blade could cut through her like butter.. my mouth started to water thinking about her blood dripping from the knife.. then everything went black. It’s like someone else took over my body. I snuck up behind Holland and quickly jerked the sharp blade across her soft, tender throat. The blood started squirting everywhere. Holland fell to the floor, gasping for breath.. her body jerking.. a pool of blood started to surround her body. I put the knife up to my mouth and licked the blood off of it. I took a deep breath and closed my eyes letting the high sensation take over my body. I then bent down beside Holland, looked her in the eyes and said’
I want to watch you die.
‘Tears started to fill her eyes and then she took her last breath. A few moments had past and I snapped out of it.. I realized what I’ve done.. I put a hand over my mouth to keep myself from screaming.. tears streaming down my face.’
No no.. no no.. not again.. ‘I cried out..’ ‘I can’t ever get attached to someone because this always happens...’
‘I’m nothing but a monster.’
‘I buried my face in Holland’s cold, hard chest and started balling.’
‘I picked up the phone and called my best friend Jessica.’
It happened again ‘I said while crying.’
“I will be right over.”
‘Jessica came over, she ran over to me and threw her arms around me, trying her best to comfort me.’
“Shh shh honey it’s going to be okay.”
‘She whispered into my ear.’
Not it’s not.. I’m a monster!
“You’re not a monster dear.”
‘She said while gently rubbing my back.’
‘I took and deep breath and Jessica took her thumbs and gently wiped away my tears.’
“Help me carry the body out to my car and I will take care of everything else.”
‘We wrapped Holland’s body up in a sheet and carried her out to Jessica’s car. After loading the body in the car I seen my neighbor watching me out of his trailer. Not that I cared.. I mean he’s tried to report me before but; he’s a tweaker so nobody believes him. The cops think the drugs was just making him hallucinate. Even if I did think he would be a threat to me at anytime me and Jessica would take care of him. I just smiled at him and he backed away from the window.’
‘Me and Jessica went back inside and she started cleaning up the blood.’
“Go to bed Sarah. I told you I will take care of this. You need your rest, you’ve had a hard day.”
Thank you Jessica, you’re the best friend I’ve ever had. I love you.
“I love you too dear.”
‘I curled up on my bed and went to sleep.’
‘When I got up the next morning I look on my phone to find a text from Jessica.’
I took care of everything. I hope you slept okay. Let’s grab some drinks later? Xoxo -Jessica 😘
‘I smiled and texted back’
Okay, see you this evening ❤️
‘I then heard a very large truck pull up. I looked outside to see a moving van and some men unloading boxes. I have a new neighbor? I decided to step out on the porch to get a better look. I seen a silver car pulled up in the driveway next to mine. I felt my breath get caught in my throat when the most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen, stepped outside of the car. She had beautiful long, blonde thick hair and it was curled. She had on a black shirt with little pineapples all over it and a pair of jeans. Big beautiful blue eyes and a smile that can make even the coldest hearts melt. She had curves in all the right places. She looked about 5’2? Her height made her that much more adorable. Her blonde hair slightly blowing in the wind. My heart rate sped up, I’ve never seen someone so beautiful in my life. I watched as she was smiling and thanking the workers. Once they left I went over to greet her.’
Hi, I’m Sarah! I’m your neighbor.
‘She smiled that beautiful smile.’
“Hi I’m Hannah Rose.”
That’s a beautiful name.
‘She laughed. Her laugh was like a beautiful melody.’
Would you like some help carrying those boxes in?
‘I helped her carry in the boxes. Once we got everything inside we stepped outside to smoke. While we were smoking Jessica pulls up.’
“Sarah, dear are you ready?”
‘She asked while walking towards me and Hannah.’
Yeah.. oh Jessica! This is my new neighbor Hannah Rose.
Hannah, this is my best friend Jessica Lange.
“Hi Jessica, nice to meet you”
“Pleasures all mine darling. So your name is Hannah Rose? That’s a lovely name for a lovely girl.”
“Oh well thank you.”
‘They exchanged smiles’
Oh Hannah, me and Jessica are going out for a drink. Do you want to come with us?
“I would but I have to work tomorrow.”
Oh, that sucks.. maybe next time?
“You guys be safe, it was nice to meet both of you.”
You too honey!
‘After Sarah and Jessica left I started to head bask inside when I heard someone go.’ “Hey, kid”
‘I turned around to see a really skinny man, with rotting teeth and dark circles around his eyes.’
‘I don’t know this guy but I’m feeling pretty sketched.’
Who- who are you?
“I’m Phil, I’m Sarah’s other neighbor.”
‘He said while pointing to a worn down, beaten up trailer.’
“I would watch my ass if I were you.”
Excuse me? What’s that suppose to mean?
“It means if you were smart you would stay away from Sarah.”
Okay, well let’s say for arguments sake I’m not smart, would you tell me what the hell you are talking about?
“No kid, if you aren’t smart enough to listen to my warning then you deserve whatever happens to you.”
‘What the hell?!’ ‘I thought’
‘Obviously he is on something. I don’t have time for his games or his crazy fairytales about Sarah, I’ve got stuff to do. I turned around and started walking back inside my house.’
“Don’t say I didn’t warn ya kid.”
