two narrators one story



So here is the real story

Real story

It was just the other day when I was

On my way home from the most amazing European trip, I’m so

Glad my sister had a good time and got to see everything she wanted to see. I was really happy for her I don’t know why she thought I was

Jealous… mom made her pick me up from the air port I know she didn’t want to take the time out of her day to come get her baby sister. So before any of this even happened she was looking to get back at me. I couldn’t

Understand why she thought I had it out for her she had just got home! We were driving out of the air port. That’s

When “things” started to happen. There was a black escalade following us, Chanel definitely

Did not notice. I was just trying to talk to Kate about her trip but she was just acting all

Paranoid? Of course I was! How could I not be? When this all black escalade was following us ever since we left the air port! Here I am

Just thinking that it’s just some car that is going the exact same way as us and we

Are going to get kidnapped, or even worse killed! We got to a red light the car

Pulled up next to us the window rolled down there were two men dressed in business clothes it just looked like they were getting back from

Killing there last victim. They drove in the opposite direction from us when the light turned green. So I’m thinking that everything is okay! I just went back to telling Chanel about the amazing time I had. I told her

About some guy she had met in France, he would always leave her a flower outside her door

In the morning. He was so sweet, love at first sight is

Not real! I can’t believe that she would be that gullible. That’s not all he would leave her though, he left

Me jewelry too! That’s when things started to get some what strange. He said to me that one day he would never see me again, and that it wasn’t anything I did but

That there were many people that wanted him dead. Now don’t you think after hearing that you would be freaked out?!  She should have just stopped talking to him after

That was the last time I thought I would see him but as I was leaving he showed up at the airport as I was just about to board, he ran up

To her and kissed her. Why she didn’t yell for help? I don’t know.  We are getting off task… for the record I’m still not

Jealous! See I told you. So we are on the highway and we see the black escalade again! I forgot to mention

That she had seen the men that were in the escalade back at the airport coming back home. You would think she would have said something about that a bit sooner… so now here we are

Getting followed by the guys that were at the airport. How was I supposed to know that this was going to happen? I don’t get why Chanel is so mad. We had finally lost

Them, when we had drove into the city. When we got back to the house mom had said there was a letter waiting

 for me from the hotel. I went outside to read it and there was the black escalade sitting outside the house. Trying to make sense of what was happening I opened the letter it was from Augustin inside it read Dear,

Kate never told me what it said, but all I know is we didn’t get kidnapped so I don’t care.

21 minutes

                It was a Christmas Eve. Fog stuck to the tarmac at Lindbergh field.  Just like every other night was awaiting the arrival of my husband. 7:00 pm, the phone rang; someone was on the other line. “Hello” no answer. “Hello?” again no answer.
                The phone beeps, notifying me the mysterious caller has nothing to say. I had an overwhelming feeling of confusion come over me as I put the phone down and went back to roasting chestnuts over an open fire.  7:30 comes around and I hear someone at the door thinking it was my husband I ran to the door and swung it open. To my surprise it was not him, I saw foot prints in the snow leading to the street. Starting to get worried I called my husband and it went right to voice mail; of course. Trying not to think so much about the mysterious things that were happening I started to hang the stockings by the chimney with care. Turning to look out the window I see a group of people walking down the street there is maybe 10 or 12 of them.  “It’s probably nothing.” I tell myself.  It’s finally 8:00 and my husband is pulling into the driveway! I was so excited he was finally home and we could have dinner and watch Christmas movie classics. As we are eating dinner I tell him about all the strange things that happened while he was at work. “It just sounds like some little kids running around in the snow no need to worry.” He said.

Now it’s 9:00 the door bell rings I make my husband go answer it and I fallow behind, he goes to open it I’m peaking around the corner, scared it might be the people that called or run up to the house and then left but got the courage to come back and rob us because they knew we were home? I bet they just want our presents from Santa.  He opens it, “Hello?” “One… Two… Three… We wish you a merry Christmas, we wish you a merry Christmas, we wish you a merry Christ mass, and a happy new year!” Boy do I feel dumb… “See I told you it was nothing.”

A little lost

Ron: And?

Tate: And what?

Ron: I don’t know… you’re the genius that got us into this mess.

Tate: You’re ridiculous. If you had just decided to stay awake with me then maybe we would be there by now!

Ron: AND maybe if you didn’t drive 3 hours in the wrong direction we wouldn’t be in this predicament.

Tate: Wow look at you using big words!

Ron: Forget it you’re not even worth my time.

Tate: Look… I hate being lost.

Ron: Doesn’t everyone?

Tate: Yes I would think so but still…

Ron: Still what?

Tate: If you would have just stayed awake with me…

Ron: OH GOOD BACK TO THAT! Well! It was your turn to drive, and my turn to rest.

Tate: Okay… okay… so we got a bit lost, big deal. What can you do? Nothing… it’s done and over with.

Ron: Not really because it’s dark, I’m cold, hungry, and tired. I thought I would be in a nice warm bed by now but I guess not.

Tate: Shut up…here comes someone!

Ron: Do you know that man? No? Didn’t think so... So why in the world would you…

Tate: Excuse me sir!?

Sir: Leave me alone, don’t talk to me.

Ron: HA! I told you that wouldn’t work.

Tate: you’re just a pessimistic jerk. I don’t see you trying anything to get us out of this mess.

Ron: Yeah because I didn’t get us into this mess. But you’re right. I’ll try something.

Tate: Where are you going?

Ron: you coming or no?

Tate: Well is your plan to leave me here?

Ron: No I’m walking to the gas station up the road…

Tate: Oh…

Ron: Yeah come on smart one… just don’t talk to anyone. Let me do the talking.

Tate: Got it!

Behind Closed Doors

            1, 2, 3 Breathe… 1, 2, 3 Breathe… 1, 2, 3 Breathe… Just don’t look back. But how could you not? Having that unsettling feeling that someone is watching your every move.
            Just one more block and everything will be alright.
            Okay punch in your code 0 7 1 7, open the door, close the door. Now walk up the stairs. I am at my apartment. Just find your keys. Put the key in the door. Open the door, shut the door. I’m in side why don’t I feel safe?
             Creak, creak, creak. What was that? Creak, creak. Someone is in here, I just know it. But how? I know I shut and locked everything, I checked twice. I’ll just get out of bed and check. Someone could have climbed up the fire escape and came in through the window. Just go back to bed your being ridiculous.
              Just a few more steps and everything will be alright.
              Okay punch in your code 7 1 7 0. I needed to change it. He was in my apartment last night he knew my code, I just know he did. Open the door, close the door. Walk up the stairs. Where did I put my key? I really need to hurry I can hear him coming up the stairs. Okay now quick put the key in the door. Open the door, slam it shut. He’s still watching me I just know it.
              BOOM, crash. That sounded like it was right outside my bedroom door. I’m going to just take a peak outside my room. Okay just a peak. How could the picture frame have fallen from the table? He’s in here again. Hello? I know you’re in here. Just leave I don’t know what you want from me. Just shut and lock your door he can’t get you.
               Just don’t stop running. Keep going as fast as you can. He won’t catch up.
               Okay now punch in your new old code 0 7 1 7. Open the door, shut the door. I feel like I can’t catch my breath I haven’t stopped running. Go up stairs quick! I need to find my keys, I found them. Shit I dropped my keys. Hurry, come on, hurry up! Open the door fast, slam the door shut. How can I keep living like this?

                 Just take a pill and go to sleep.
               Knock, knock, knock. Stop! Just please stop! Knock, knock, knock. Go away! Why can’t this just all go away? The noises, the items breaking as they mysteriously fall, and the people staring they are all watching me. Now I’m shaking, breaking out into a cold sweat. My mind is racing. Make it stop, please just make it stop. Just take more pills. More and, more pills. Okay… now everything is going to stop.
              Knock, knock. Come on Juliet open the door! Fine, I am just going to use my spare key then. Juliet? Juliet?!

              1, 2, 3 Breathe. 1, 2, 3 Breathe. 1, 2, 3 Breathe. Why is this man pushing on my chest? I don’t understand what's going on. He keeps yelling “Come on! Come on! You can make it just breathe!” Why can I see myself? What’s going on? 

              All I wanted was to make it stop.
