Lurking in the Shadows (*EDITED*)
Have you ever felt like you were being followed? Like someone is watching your every move? You look around, but nothing is out of the ordinary?
You walk faster to get to your destination, but the feeling of someone behind you is still there.
Your heartbeat quickens, your eyes water so you can't see anything in front of you, your ears start ringing so you can't hear the footsteps getting closer, your breaths come shorter and shorter and you feel like you're going to pass out. You're sweating like crazy and shaking uncontrollably.
All you want to do is get to a shelter and get help.
Ashley Stewart feels like this every night she has to walk to work. She panics as soon as she steps foot out her door, dreading the two plus miles she has to walk to get to her job at the café.
She relies on the little bit of light that comes from her cell phone, but it's no use. There are no street lamps to guide her or bring her some sense of comfort. There's nothing but the moon, casting shadows through the trees surrounding her.
Who's following her? What do they want with her? Why are they following her but not making an appearance? Will she ever find out?
