I never did tell Jake what happened that night, only a brief story. I did how ever managed to get to my exam and the cops let me off clean. I don’t understand how cops would think after you saved your drunk best friend, that you could be the one that planned to murder her?. How stupid does that sound?
I was just getting out of my exam. Which I had a feeling I failed. Cause the only thing on my mind was last night. My eyes kept going out of focus and I think fell asleep with my eyes open. Jake offered to take me to lunch after my exam but I told him I was probably going to pass out as soon and should go home. Thankfully he dropped the idea and let me be
The sun was blinding as i walked out of the doors to the school. Despite the awful night I had, today wasnt at all bad. The sun was shining and it was warm enough that I didnt mind the 10 minute walk to the cafe that I worked at.
I walked in feeling the relief that my boss wasn’t in so I could get a free stuff. Alice eyed me the entire time I had ordered and left to sit out on the patio. where I now sat smoking and barely eating my muffin. It sadly laid there dissected on its wrapping. I watched as people passed by and the odd person walking up the steps to enter the café.
I was so lost in thought about last night, I didn’t even see Alice come outside to clean the tables and stand beside me with her hands on her hip.
“ You know your going to kill yourself”
I looked up and instantly rose my hand to block the sun.
“ Your cigarettes , I think you’ve had about 4 since you sat down, what’s wrong?”
“ Oh... sorry I haven’t noticed . Nothing I just failed my exam” I said in a small voice and out my cig out.
“Thats not what’s wrong, Hayley. I know what happened last night was nerve racking and if you want to talk. I have a break in 10 minuets.” She looked concerned and I forced a smile up at her.
“ Thanks Alice. but I’m fine. I just haven’t slept yet.I'm really tired"
“ Are you sure? Well maybe you should sleep instead of drinking coffee and smoking?. Then at least tomorrow I don’t have to do all the work” she smiled and nudged my shoulder playfully. I gave a light chuckle. Realizing how tired I really was and how I really didn’t want to work tomorrow. How difficult life will be now that i have a cast on.
“Anyways, if your lonely your stalker is sitting inside.” I shot up in my chair and quickly glanced inside , he was sitting in the same spot as last time. My stomach flipped and I felt like I was going to be sick.
“ Whoa, calm down. What’s wrong with you ? Its like you’ve seen a ghost”
“ Sorry , its just ....“ I paused
“ I think he’s stalking me, he was there last night at the club too” Lowering my voice to a whisper.
Alice laughed and put her hands on my shoulders and lightly pushed me back in my seat.
“First of all, I think you need some sleep. Secondly, I think he likes you, He's too hot to be a stalker and if he is then why are you complaining? I'd have him stalk me any day”
I looked at her confused and a bit nauseated. No way in hell he liked me.
She laughed “ well don’t barf on me now” She bent down and glanced at him through the window.
“ He told me to go check on you , he said my co-worker looked stoned”
She laughed and I just sat there with wide eyes. I could feel my cheeks turn red.
He thinks i'm stoned? What the hell? Omg! This cant be happening!.
I gave her a tiny smiled and looked down at my destroyed muffin.
She picked up my uneaten muffin bits and put it on the dirty plate she was carrying
"I think you should go and say hi,”
“Hi?! He thinks i'm stoned!” I shrieked.
“ I bet he’s just couldn’t think of anything to tell me. Cause he was afraid to talk to you “ That knot in my stomach was growing and I wished I had eaten my muffin cause if I did mange to throw up at least there was something to come out.
I pulled out another smoked and Alice walked away. Still slightly giggling to herself.
I peered over and I saw him looking at me. His eyes where so dark, it was hard to read. But I couldn’t look away. It was luring me in and the more I stared the softer they became. He finally got up and I jolted in my seat. He walked over to the garbage and threw out his things. Quickly, I scrambled to gather my things and ran.
I was not talking to my killer. Not today.
I quickly walked down the stairs so it didn’t look like I was running away but as soon as I got out of eye sight, I ran down behind the building. It took me to this alley. It wasnt the greatest place to be but I knew on the other side there was a park. It was the park few streets over form Victoria’s apartment. I began to make my way towards the park when my phone went off in my pocket and scared the living day lights out of me. I carefully moved my things on my injured are to retrieve it.
Jake: Are you feeling better?
I deiced not to bother texting. In hopes he would think I was fast asleep. Even if I should of told someone I was in a back alley way. With my luck I was being followed right now and was about to get jumped.
Your over thinking Hayley, just breath. Maybe I should just go to bed
Finally reaching Victoria's place after literally running the entire time. I turned around to check if i was being followed for the billionth time. I hurried up the steps and ran into my room, throwing my bag on my desk and flopping down on my bed. The pillows surrounded my head and I felt my body melt into the mattress.
My mind was racing but my body was exhausted, soon I was beginning to find myself calming and my thoughts of this mysterious guy began to fade along with the rest of the world.
