Safe and Sound
“Hello, sweetheart. I hope I didn't wake you. I just wanted to call and say pretty you look in your bright green sweatshirt and booty shorts." I looked down at my clothes then over to my window. I slowly got up and as I neared the windows moved to the right. I lifted up one of the blinds and looked outside. I couldn't see anyone. The rain started to come down faster. I hadn't even noticed it until now. All I could hear was the thunder, the occasional lightning strike, and the rain beating down on my window. I slowly backed away towards my bed and asked the mystery man, "Who are you? What do you want with me? Did Charlie put you up to this!?" The man laughed and said, "No, my dear. I'm called Father by my friends, Time by strangers, Tick by my family, and Tock by my followers. But you can call me Steve. No, I'm not clock. Now tell me, what am I? Also I've wanted you for a long time now and soon you'll be all mine. I'm here to make you feel wanted. You should know I want to make you feel safe. You should know though, I'm always watching you my love." Then he hung up.
