Town Paralyzed With Fear As Serial Killer Remains At Large
"Dani, put that away, you're gonna scare the customers." Faith said as she picked up some empty beer bottles.
"People have a right to be informed." She said as she flipped through the newspaper.
"People have a right to get drunk off their asses, now give it." Faith snatched the paper from her co-worker and tossed it under the bar. "You're gonna get us both in trouble."
"Too late." The two young women snapped their heads in the direction of their boss' office. "Start wrappin' up." He ordered.
"Sorry, Lou." They said in unison. The stocky man rolled his eyes before he started putting up chairs.
"I'm telling you, he's gonna strike again, I can feel it." Dani said as she mixed a drink.
"You're paranoid, I wouldn't be surprised if there was no serial killer at all. Just a couple girls in the wrong place at the wrong time." Faith said as she pinned her long brown hair up in a bun.
"Then isn't this the wrong time to be working? I mean Lou should have the boys working grave shift, not us." Dani complained. She did have a point, in normal circumstances women wouldn't want to be working till 2 in the morning, let alone when the town's being preyed on by a potential psychopath.
"Yeah, but they ain't as cute as us." Faith winked at a patron when she handed him two long-necks.
"Last call!" Lou called out to an already emptying bar.
"You'll walk me to my car, right?" Dani asked.
"What are ya scared of, the boogeyman?" Lou teased. Faith shot him a dirty look and put an arm around Dani.
"He could be real!" Dani defended.
"Don't worry, if your chatterbox doesn't scare 'em off, my fist...will." Faith trailed off when she locked eyes with a man near the back of the bar. His hand was clutched tightly around a bottle of beer and his cold blue eyes were slow to move away from her.
"Someone's got an admirer, he's kinda cute." Dani said.
"Here, toss these." Faith handed over a couple bottles and cans. She looked back one more time at the mysterious man when she walked behind the bar, he hadn't moved an inch since she first looked at him. His blue eyes actually stood out in the dimness of the bar, and she could only imagine the mane he was containing in that neat ponytail.
"Go talk to him." Dani said.
"No! He could be some sort of sicko." Faith said as she wiped down the bar.
"Oh, he looks harmless."
"Whatever, he's not my type." Faith said.
"Do I pay you girls to work a bar or stand around and gossip like school girls?" Lou asked.
"But Lou, there's this-" Dani started before she turned around and saw that he was gone. "Where'd he go?"
"Back to work, knuckleheads." Lou said.
"Promise?" Dani held out her pinky finger.
"Don't I always?" Faith asked, locking the finger with her own.
" 'Night." Dani smiled before she got in her car.
" 'Night, girl." Faith said before she headed to her car.
"How do I lose 'em every night?" Faith muttured to herself as she fumbled for the keys in her purse. She thought she heard footsteps coming behind her. She spun around, but there was no one. "Come on, come on!" She spat, raking through her purse. She finally found the hoop of keys and got in her car.
"Please, please don't do this." She pleaded.
"You shoulda been nicer to me."
"I-I'm sorry." She began crying as she backed away.
"I just wanted a kiss."
