3 Years Later
I walk into my apartment that I share with my best friend from Uni called Samantha. I got to the kitchen and dump the grocery bags on the counter. Samantha walks in.
"Ooh what did you buy?" she says looking through the bags.
"Don't touch Samantha" I say slapping her hand away.
"Ugh don't call me that" she groans as she walks over to the fridge and opens it.
"Fine okay Sam" I say as I put the shopping away and she smiles. We walk to the sitting room.
"So we having movie night tonight?" she asks.
"No sorry I can't I've got work tomorrow" I say.
"Okay" she says and watches TV. I sit next to her.
"Sorry Sam but I need the money" I say.
"Nah it's fine" she says taking a sip of her soda. I get up and walk into the kitchen.
"Sam you want anything to eat?" I say poking my head through the door.
"Depends what?" she asks.
"Popcorn?" I suggest.
"Yeah sure" she says and I walk into the kitchen. After I make the popcorn I walk into the sitting room and plop next to Sam putting a few popcorns in my mouth.
"Ugh Jason McCann's jails sentence has been bumped up two more years" says Sam.
"Really?" I ask. She nods.
"God he deserves everything coming to him" I say.
"Yeah I know, what he did to you was bang out of order" she says.
"Yeah" I say looking down at my hands.
"Don't let it get to you" she says as she pulls me in for a hug.
"I know how much you loved him but get over it" she adds.
"It's not that it's just Alfie was my best friend" I say.
"How about I make dinner tonight you just go relax" she says.
"Thanks Sam" I say and I get up. I walk to my room. I look through my cupboard and I find the photo album which Alfie got me for my birthday a few years ago. I sit down and run my hand over the front and take a breath. I slowly open it and look through all the pictures of us from diapers till a few years ago. Why did Jason have to be so stupid. I wipe away my tears as anger takes over me at the thought of Jason. I put the photo album back and go to the toilet and take a shower.
After my shower I get out and dry my hair. I get changed into a pair of legging and a hoody. I put on a pair of fuzzy socks and tie my hair in a messy bun. My phone rings. I check to see my mum calling. I answer it.
"Hey mum" I say.
"His sweetie, you okay?" she asks.
"Yeah just had a shower" I say.
"Okay I was just calling to see if you were okay" she says.
"Yeah mum I'm fine" I say.
"Okay, I have to go now, busy busy busy" she says.
"Okay bye" I say.
"Bye" she says and hangs up. I throw my phone onto the bed and let out a breath.
"Jess" I hear Sam call.
"Yeah" I shout back.
"Dinner is ready" she calls.
"Coming" I yell and get up. I go to close the curtains but I see a shadowy figure but I just ignore it and walk downstairs.
"What we having?" I ask ask I walk in.
"Alfredo pasta" she replies.
"Mmm smells good" I say as I sit down and start to eat.
After dinner I help Sam clean the dishes. We the clean up the sitting room.
"Well I'm watching movie, you wanna watch?" she asks.
"Nah I got work tomorrow I can't be late" I say.
"Okay but I'm watching 21 Jump Street" she says.
"So" I say.
"Channing Tatum" she sings. I look at her and she smirks.
"Okay fine just a little" I say as I sit next to her.
"What about work?" she asks.
"Oh so now you care" I say and we both laugh. Sam starts the movie.
"How hot is Channing?" she asks.
"So hot" I say.
"He like broke the scale" she says and we laugh. Halfway through the movie I check the time. It was almost half twelve and my eyes wide.
"Oh god I need to go to bed" I say as I get up.
"Okay but your missing it" she says.
"Yeah but work is more important" I say.
"Whatever" he says.
"Okay Sam don't stay up too long you've got class later tomorrow" I say
"Okay mum" she teases and I laugh.
"Nighy Sam" I say as I head upstairs.
"Night Jess" she calls and I get changed into my pyjamas. I get in bed and let my slumber take over me.
The next morning I woke up with the sun shining on my face. I peel open my eyes.
"Jess" I hear Sam knock on the door.
"You're gonna be late for work" she says as she comes in. I shoot up.
"What? I say looking at the time.
"Oh shit I've only got ten minutes" I say as I get up and run to the bathroom. I wash up and and Sam gives me food.
"Okay I'll see you later Sam" I say getting my shoes on.
"Bye Jess" she says pulling me in for a hug. I walk out and get in my car and drive to work.
I stop in front of the cafe and quickly get in. My boss was standing there.
"Sorry I'm late, I slept in" I say.
"Well it's is you're first time you're late so I won't do anything harsh, you're just on lock up duty" she says and I nod. I put on an apron and grab my note pad and pen and walk over to the customer, he was wearing a black hoodie with his hood up with a SnapBack and sunglasses.
"Would you like to order" I ask with a smile.
"Yeah I would like a coffee" says a familiar male voice.
"Umm yeah sure" I say and walk to the kitchen. I give the order to the cook and head back out.
The cafe was closed and I was cleaning up. My boss walks over and I looks at her.
"Here" she says giving me the keys.
"Lock up, I'm going" she says giving me the keys.
"Okay" I say and she leaves. I start to sweep. I don't know why but I feel like I'm being watched. I look out the glass door and see a black figure far back. I look away and continue to clean. After I clean up and I lock up and as I head to my car I feel someone grab me and drags me to an ally way. I was pinned to a wall with a hand that smelt of masturbation cover my mouth. I try to get out of the persons grip. He comes into the light and my eyes widen.
"Jason" I mumble into his hand.
"Hi princess" he says huskily in my ears. I try to push him away.
"Get away from me" I say as I push him.
"You can't get rid of me that easy princess" he says and I feel something on my mouth. I see a white cloth.
"Just breath it in princess" he says and everything goes black.
