Don't say I didn't warn you

I found this recording in the house I moved into a few months ago, the tape it was on had fallen between the floorboards of where the bed used to be when I got here.I must say what was on it has frightened me so much I''m considering catching a bus out of here and never coming back.
Wasn't going to post this but I didn't feel right not telling this poor girl's story.



I never gave much thought about my death. I never thought something like would happen to me.
I'm recording this from the small gap under my bed. I can hear him.
He'd downstairs right now.

Hm, maybe I should back up quickly let you know what's going on.I like in New York, so I'm pretty used to random strangers saying weird things to me. There's so many people living here that you're unlikely to ever see the same weirdo twice.
Not this time though. The first time I noticed him he was in my usual morning coffee stop before work. I get there at around 8.45 every weekday morning, I often see a few work time regulars there like me but this guy he just didn't fit in.
He was sullen looking, he looked homeless if I'm honest. He was dirty and old looking. But he was just sat there with a cup of coffee so I paid little attention.
The next time I saw him, I was at work looking out of my office window at the bus stop in front of the building. And there he was.He must have been stood there over an hour without getting on a single bus, then a client rang me distracting me and when I looked back he was gone.
Now the third time I saw him I was done with the whole thing.I was just leaving work when I decided to do something unusual for me. I normally stick to the same routine. I get up go to Java's, go to work then catch the bus home.
That day I just felt like doing something different, I decided to take a walk around see where it led me. I wasn't stupid I wouldn't go anywhere I didn't know, New York's a big big place and I don't want to get lost.
Anyway I ended up finding a library not too far from the bus stop, As I was sitting down reading I saw him again. He was sat at the table directly in front of me. He was grinning.
Having had enough I marched up to him and demanded he tell me why he was following me.
In a dull husky voice he said `I'm going to kill you in 3 days, I'm going to follow you home. I'm going to find where you're hiding and I will rip you limb from limb but hey at least I'm warning you'
He smile grew larger than ever. I stood there dumbfounded. What do you do when someone says something like that.
I walked away as fast as I could and went home. I was too tired to deal with this. The next morning I called in sick from work, I did the same the day after.
So today's the day, huh? What the weird old guy said didn't seem that bad anymore he was probably just a crazy hobo who wanted to scare me, yeah that's it. I thought.

That day I saw him as I was on the bus, we drove past him and for a second our eyes met and he smiled. I decided to skip coffee today in hope of avoiding him but nevertheless when I got to work he was there looking at me from outside the window.
I knew I should have told someone, maybe called a friend or stayed at my parents house that night. I should have done something.
I figured that if I just went straight home after work made sure everything was locked and just huddled up in my room for the night that it would all be okay.
I was so stupid and wrong, I don't know how he got in I made sure twice everything was locked.
I think he's done looking downstairs I can hear him coming up the stairs.
He's talking I can hear him perfectly as if he's right next to me.
'Hiding won't do you any good, hun. I told you I'd find you'

Just then I felt a very cold hand grab my ankle as I let out a blood curdling scream.

Shantell Murphy: I absolutely love this . I have not read a book by my choice since first grade I am in 9th grade now and I love this book . its suspense is really good . it's alot of foreshadowing witch is cool . it gives a thrill and excitement to the book .

Shifa Gohar: this book is my first on inkitt and I love it thoroughly...but i guess this is not the end. The characters were amazing the plot too. At times it scared me more than a horror movie would. Love the plot something i had not read in a while.

Orion 394: This book was absolutely amazing! It was great, a little bit disturbing but I still don't get why Frank did what he did... Did he have a motive or did he just have issues? Anyway thanks for the great read!

Melissa Barras Trahan: If you enjoy reading a thriller with twists and turns, this is the book for you. When you think you have the story figured out.....the author surprises you and then the whole story changes again until the very last page! The further along I got, the faster things changed. Even though this is a ...

Castro Ohana: This book is a great read. I can't wait for the next one (I hope there is another). Like my title I could not put it down! It has just the right amount of drama, actions and wow moments. I also love it when the person you least expected becomes the hero. A few grammar errors but overall a great...

rachelrainford6: This probably has to be one of the best books I've read on here. I read it quite quickly and I'll have to say the story took a turn towards the end that I did not see coming. The topic discussed in this book such as life really gave me a new insight and I realize that it is taken for granted.

Ben Gauger: Kudos go to Karissa, author of Elements Of Engagement, an otherwise dark and twisted tale of love and workplace intrigue, very 'Fifty Shades of Grey' to be sure, her writing style being very graphic ad otherwise sexually-charged, hence the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' reference, and as for her use of g...

smile4me: Exciting page turner. I was barely able to put it down to go to bed. I can usually figure out the twists before they are revealed but not this time! Such a thrill to be surprised. I can hardly wait for the follow up!!

kim: This is great! Maybe it could just be a little more specific. One of the keys to great writing is describing things in detail. I think you're off to a great start. I wish you much luck.

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

Girl on Fire: Great story, line Alex!!!It really has a edge on it. It put me on edge with its thrill. Can't wait to read the rest.!!!

Kiz16: After a truly shocking start to the story, I found the style and content slowed down as the author introduced a varied group of characters who I thought were fleshed out very well. After a slow couple of chapters, I found this story difficult to leave with the tension growing within the house. Yo...
