The man

Warning: scary.


I have been living by my self for four years. I've had a good life until last year.

Last year I made a friend. He was a nice man. He had a short beard and brown eye's. I met him at the park a few blocks away from my house. I learned his name, but I don't feel comfortable saying it anymore. I'll just call him the man.

One day we were sitting at the same park bench as always. We had become close.

The next day I woke up and walked down the stairs when I saw The man sitting at my table with a coffee cup in one hand. He smiled at me and waved.

I no idea how he came in. My door was locked and my windows were to. "How did you get in here?" I asked.

He looked at me as if he was mad. "I do have the right to be in here right? We are friends." he said.

Something about the way he said that made me not want to say no or he would hurt me.

I decided to be cautious and lock all my windows and doors. I didn't want him coming back in.

That night I woke up at around midnight. I didn't sit up or even move. Because he was there standing over my bed. I pretended like I was still asleep hoping he wouldn't notice. I closed my eye's and didn't even take a breath. I herd footsteps echoing threw the house. The door creaked shut. And as slow as I could I opened one eye to see that he was gone. I was alone. Completely alone.

In the morning he wasn't there to my relief. My hands were shaky and I tried to settle my coffee.

Someone knocked on the door and it made me jump. I stood up wondering who would be here at this time? I looked threw the peep whole.

The blood drained from my face and I couldn't feel my feet.

Outside my door stood the man. I didn't open the door I couldn't.

He knocked louder and more furious. When I didn't answer he began to yell threw the door. "Come on Rachel. Open the door. It's me." He said in a calm voice and knocked even harder. I was afraid he would knock the door down.

Suddenly it stopped. After a few seconds of trying to process what happened I looked out the peep whole. He was gone.

My heart pounded in my ears and I felt weak. I started to get a headache.

I breathed calmly and convinced myself it was just in my head.

I felt breathing on my neck. It was sticky and thick. I didn't want to turn around knowing already who it was. I wanted to cry.

"Are you avoiding me?" He asked angrily.

I couldn't stay here anymore. I unlocked my door and ran out as if there was a fire. I grabbed the keys from my purse and unlocked the car door. I started it without hesitation.

I just kept driving. I wasn't going to stay in this city anymore. I'm sure my friend would let me stay with her if I just asked.

My gas meter was running low so I stopped at a gas station. I had calmed down a bit but didn't want to stop driving. Sadly I had no choice. I handed the lady some money.

She looked at me funny. "Excuse me Ma'am but you have to pay inside."

I thought that was a little weird but I followed her.

She looked at me. "I'm sorry I lied to you, but there is a man crouching down in the back seat." she said.
