-Hi, I'm back. Five in one, ok. Also, the title really doesn't have much to do with the chapter but I didn't really know what to title it...Anyway, Enjoy Chapter 30!-


Lucy's P.O.V


........Is what should've happened.

Standing there, legs locked in fear, with an unknown figure holding a gun to my face.

They pull the trigger again.


They forgot to cock it!!

I took this as my chance and sent the best roundhouse I could muster to their stomach. 

I scream at the top of my lungs and dash downstairs, getting my phone out to call 911. I press emergency call on the lock screen and try my best to keep quiet. I reach for my keys, but they're not there!

I must've dropped them, o-or left them at school or something...what do I do?!

Slowly, I reach up and grab the largest kitchen knife I have and go back to my hiding spot behind the counter.

I hear what sounds like a 20-30-year-old man cursing and yelling at me from upstairs. Heavy footsteps descend slowly "Come out. I didn't mean anything! It was joooke...I didn't shoot ya, did I?"

The operator on the other line seemed to catch on that I was hiding from someone. She whispered "Police have dispatched to your location...stay on the phone, ok? Don't hang up."

"I nod, even though I know she can't see me.

I listen as the footsteps get closer and closer. 

And Closer.

And Closer.

And Closer.
