1. Mesmerizing eyes.

Nine o'clock at night, I was walking home from work, the cold air of winter whistling in my ear causing me to cover my ears with my scarf. Like any other work night, I was walking in a deserted street, with a forest on my left side and houses on my right. It was really quiet with most houses dark from not having light.

I felt a cold chill go through me when the wind passed by me. I wrapped my jacket a bit more around my body to send away the cold chills of the wind. I felt like someone was watching me, but I brushed it off. I always scare myself when it is dark outside.

I suddenly heard a WOOSH sound. I hoped it was not a predator or a thug or something much more terrifying. I looked to my left but no one was there and then my right, no one was there either. I breathed out shakily and picked up my pace. I could still feel like I was as being watched. I kept on looking to my left, right and behind me. The feeling of being watched made me uneasy.

OK Mary-Kate, calm do—. I didn't get to finish my comfort speech because I felt two strong arms pulling me off the ground and pinning my back against a barky tree that was nearby. I closed my eyes and screamed, but my mouth was quickly covered by a strong hand.

I opened my eyes slowly, scared of what I will see. I met a pair of red eyes that belonged to the most gorgeous boy I have ever seen. Ignoring that he might kill me or God knows what, he really was good-looking.

What am I thinking?

He looked like he was the same age as me, but man, he looked really scary.

"Don't scream." He hissed on my neck, his chilly breath sending shivers down my back. He removed his hand from my mouth and pressed both hands against my shoulders really hard, causing my eyes to sting with tears. What does he want from me? I asked myself. Is my life going to end now? I don't want to die yet. God please help me. I closed my eyes to blink the tears away from my eyes. They flowed from my eyes, running gently down my cheek. This was the end of Mary-Kate; I thought closing my eyes preparing for the worst.

His grip on my shoulders started to loosen a bit. I opened my eyes and met his eyes again. I couldn't look away; they were so mesmerizing. He looked deeply into my eyes and his angry, grumpy expression changed to a sad expression. He quickly let go off me.

"I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to hurt you." He said moving away with his hands raised as if I'm a monster he was trying to run from or something. I just stood there crying, I was totally scared. I watched him as he sat down on a rock nearby. He buried his face in his hands and started mumbling something like, why can't I control myself? Why am I a monster?

I wiped my tears away and walked to the boy. There is something about him that was drawing me to him. I knew it was a bad idea to go to him, but something was telling me to. As I got closer to him, I saw that his hands were pale and I could see a blue vein through his skin. Wow! Maybe it is the moonlight shining on them, or just my eyes. I don't know.

"Are you OK?" I said sitting next to him, still feeling scared.

I lifted my hand and placed it on his shoulder. He flinched a bit and looked at me. I quickly let go of his shoulder and gazed into his eyes which I recognised have turned into a deep blue colour. How did he do that? My heart beat picked up again. I could hear it in my ears. I moved away from him a bit, trying to keep some distance.

"I'm sorry. I-uh-didn't mean to scare you." He said with an apologetic expression, still looking in my eyes deeply.

"It's fine". Even though he scared me I felt like I had to forgive him. I could feel my heart beat slowing down a little, but I could still hear it beating loud against my rib cage.

"Thanks. Can we start over?" he said looking at me waiting for an answer.

I got captured by his eyes. They are really mesmerizing. I felt myself leaning towards him. I don't know why, but his eyes drew me in. I suddenly snapped out of it. I quickly looked down at my hands.

"Sure" I said unsure of myself.

"Hi, I'm Jason, what's your name?"

"I'm Mary-Kate. Many people call me Mary." I said smiling a little.

"That's a really nice name for a beautiful girl like you." He said smiling showing his sparkly white teeth. I felt my cheeks heating up. I quickly looked down again, my hands were shaking really bad. I quickly hid them in the pockets of my jacket.

"So where are you going at this time of the night?" He paused, but didn't wait for me to answer. "There are so many things out there that can hurt you". He said with a serious phrase.

Yes, those things like you!

"Oh, I'm going home, I just finished work. So yeah…." I said looking down again. I couldn't look in his eyes. I will get lost into them again and forget why I am even here.

"Right, Fair enough." He commented.

My bag vibrated which made me flinch. I quickly opened it and took my phone out. I saw that I had a new text message and it was from my mum. I haven't arrived home the time I was supposed to. I replied quickly that I was coming and I just had to go into some shops to find something. I don't know why I lied about what I was doing or where I was. I just felt like I couldn't tell her about Jason, or that I got attacked just a few minutes ago.

"um-Jason?" he looked at me. "I have to go home now, bye." I stood up picking my bag up really fast. I swung it over my right shoulder and tried to cover myself a bit more with my jacket, while walking towards my street.

"Wait!" I heard his soft, angelic voice calling behind me. I looked back and saw Jason looking at me. He walked towards me and stopped just close enough that I could feel his breath hitting my face. "When will I see you again?"

"I don't know. But I hope soon." I said looking in his eyes and smiling a bit. Wow, that was lame. I hope soon? Who says such a thing to someone who just scared the shiz out of them a few minutes ago? I took a huge breath. It was like he was taking my breath away.

He smiled "Do you want me to walk you home? I wouldn't like anyone to hurt a beautiful girl like you."

That was the sweetest thing a boy has ever said to me. Wait, he probably says the same thing to every girl he meets or scare I should say. He does look like a player. I heard Jason chuckle. Did I say that out loud? Anyway, who cares, I could feel my cheeks hitting up, even though the cold wind felt like it was slapping me across the face with its coldness.

"Sure, that will be great" I smiled back at him, I don't know why, but I trusted this boy even though he scared me like ten minutes ago. We started walking towards my street. It was only two blocks away from where we were.

"So what were you doing out there? Creeping on me?" I said looking at him, with a smirk on my lips.

"Maybe." He smirked back at me. I laughed a bit at how funny he looked, but he was cute and creepy at the same time.


In a few minutes we were already standing on the foot path in front of my house. My neighbourhood was really quiet and it was the same as the other street where Jason found me, well actually scared me; mostly because the people weren't here, because they were on Christmas holidays.

"Well this is my house." I said turning my body towards Jason who was looking down at me.

"Oh" he says with a disappointed expression. "I guess I will see you later."

"Yeah, thank you for walking me home." I said smiling at him. I didn't know what to do, hug him? Shake hands?

"No problem" He said quickly. "Have a good night"

He waved a little as I started walking towards my house. He watched me, smiling. I opened the door and walked in. I sighed, what a day, I thought closing the door behind me. A smiled formed on my lips.

"Oh, what happened?" I looked up and saw my mum looking at me with a curious face. I tried to look serious but I just couldn't. A smile crept on my lips again.

"Nothing" I said walking past her.

"Oh tell me, tell me!" she pleaded. My mum acts like a teenager sometimes but she is a really great mum. Her shoulder length dark hair bounced against her shoulders.

"It's nothing mum, I had a good day at work and I am really tired from all the laughing" I said pretending to look tired.

"Ugh, Fine then, Good night honey" my mum said giving me a kiss on the cheek.

"Thank you, same to you. I love you mum" I said going up the stairs.

"I love you too" she shouted from downstairs.

My mum is a bit shorter than me. She always told me that I took after my father. My father is much taller than my mother and taller than me as well.

I rushed into my room; it was now nine-thirty pm. I got changed into my pink, pig printed pyjamas. My dad got me these pyjamas for my sixteenth birthday last year, it was actually one of the best birthdays I have ever had. I didn't have any people coming to my house to celebrate with me; I just celebrated it with my mum and dad. We went for dinner and when we got back they gave me presents. As I said dad got me pyjamas and mum got me a dress and a few novels that I wanted.

Anyway, I brushed my teeth until I felt comfortable that they were clean. I finished and went in my room to get my school bag ready for tomorrow.

I went to bed; I was soon embraced by the softness of the cotton sheets on my bed but, I slept not so peacefully; well I think it wasn't peacefully since the scene of what happened earlier haunted me to my sleep.

Even though he is beautiful, I still felt very scared of him.

I started writing this story a long time ago, but I did something I wasn't suppose to and wasn't right. So I am going to try and rewrite this story in an amazing and original way. I hope you enjoy.

Please feel free to send me feedback on what you think of the story.

there might be a few grammar errors here and there...Just let me know. That will be great!

Thank you for reading.
