i was so tired. i cant sleep anymore knowing he's back and ready to strike me any second of the day. Trent tries to get me to go to bed,but i yell at him not to. i heard a fist bang near me. i sat up and screamed. "Gwen? what the hell are you doing!"my boss shouted. "i`m sorry..i didn't get enough sleep."i said. "you should try it sometime."he hissed before walking away. i put my hands over my eyes. "hi Gwen."Romona,my friend said. "hey."i smiled sleepily. "why are you acting so...weird?"she asked. "its someone who's pissing me off."i said. "Trent?"she suggested. "no,Trent would never make me angry."i said. "then who?"she said. my cellphone rang. i answered it. "hello."an evil male voice said. it sent shivers up my spine. "w-who's this?"i asked. the man laughed like Freddy from that Elm St. movie. "its me,sweetie."he said. my breathing became fast. he laughed again. "what do you want?"i said. "YOU."he whispered. i threw my phone at the wall. all of the employs looked at me. "Romona can i use your phone to call Trent?"i said. "as long as you don't throw it at a wall,sure."she handed me her phone. i dialed Trent's number quickly. "hello?"Trent said. "Trent,can you come pick me up?"i said. "why? is anything wrong?"he said concerned. "just please hurry."i felt a tear fall off my cheek. "okay,be there soon."he hung up. i packed up all my stuff and waited outside. Trent got out of his car. i ran and hugged him. he lifted my face up. "what's wrong?"he said. "he called me."i said. his face darkened. "lets go."he said. we drove back to the house. "are you sure he called you?"Trent said. "yes."i said. "look,you need to get to bed."he said. "no Trent,we have been over this millions of times,i`m not going to bed until i know he is gone."i said. we fought back and forth until we went inside. i walked into the living room and screamed my lungs out. hanging right in the middle of the room was my mom. blood was forming a puddle beneath her and her skin was gray. "what is it-."Trent looked at my mothers body,horrified. i looked around the room and in my mothers blood,there was a note saying,THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING. i heard Zoey screaming and crying. we both ran to her room and there was blood all over her. Trent picked her up and i looked out the window. someone was running in a black cloak. "you asshole!"i shouted before i ran out the door. "Gwen,no!"Trent said. i kept running after Duncan. "get your ass back here!"i said. i finally tackled him. i rolled him over and his body vanished,leaving his cloak behind. "i will find you! get back here and die like a man!"i yelled. "lets go back inside before someone sees us."Trent whispered,taking me back inside.
a few weeks later!
i`m sitting in the front row by my mom's coffin about to be lowered in the ground. we were all dressed in black. Zoey was asleep in my arms. Trent stood behind me with his hand on my shoulder. "Annabell was a great woman. kind,generous,helpful of others."the funeral guy said. "let us pray."the funeral guy said. we all closed our eyes and put our heads down. "Gwen."someone whispered. i looked behind me and saw him again. when a bus passed him,he was gone. "come on Gwen its over."Trent said. i stood up and watched them lower my mom in the ground. i saw a small girl throwing flowers on my mom. she had black/midnight blue hair and a light blue dress. she looked at me. was that me? i looked at her arm and there was a bone hanging out of it. Duncan`s arm came out of the ground and grabbed the girl's leg. "Gwen!"i was being shaken. i opened my eyes in a flash. "what happened?"i said. "you were asleep."Trent said. i felt my dress getting wet. i looked at my arm and it was bleeding. Trent grabbed a napkin and cleaned it up. "better?"he asked. i nodded and walked towards the car. Trent ran up to me. "how did you do that?"he said. we got into the car and drove off. "i didn't do it."i said. "then how did your arm end up bleeding?"he said. "i saw him."i said. "how does that have anything to do with your arm?"he said. "because,i think he is torturing me in my dreams and in reality."i said. "you watch to many movies."he said. "i`m serious!"i said. "i am too."he said. "dammit Trent!"i said. "what?"he said. "you aren't listening."i said. "yes i am."he said. "give me a few minutes to tell you what i saw."i snarled. i told him the story. "interesting."he said. "do you believe me?"i said. "i guess."he said. "i give up."i lied my head down on the window. Duncan stop trying to act all bad ass like Freddy Krueger,its just a movie you dip shit. i heard Duncan`s mechanical laugh ring in my ear. we reached the house and i went straight to bed. "i`m glad you took my offer."Trent said. "will you sleep with me? just in case he hurts me."i said. he kissed me and fell asleep as soon as he laid down. he must be tired. "Gwen. Gwen. Gwen."a voice repeated over and over again. "LEAVE ME ALONE!"i cried. Trent jumped. "sorry...bad dream."i said. he fell back on the bed and went to sleep. i got really close to Trent and went to sleep.
