Dark Night & Cold
Who was he?
The night was dark and cold as I walked down the empty street. I had been wandering for hours, lost in my own thoughts and the quiet of the deserted city. I had no idea where I was or how I had gotten there. All I knew was that I needed to find my way back home.
As I walked, I came across a small alleyway between two tall buildings. I hesitated for a moment, unsure if I should venture into the dark and unknown space. But something called out to me, and I couldn't ignore the pull. I stepped into the alley and made my way down its narrow path.
As I walked, I heard a faint noise coming from the end of the alley. It sounded like someone or something was moving. I quickened my pace, eager to know what lay ahead.
When I reached the end of the alley, I saw a figure standing in front of me. It was a man, tall and dressed in all black. He was shrouded in darkness, making it hard for me to see his face. But I could feel his eyes on me, watching me intently.
"Who are you?" I asked, my voice shaking with dread.
The man didn't answer. He simply stood there, silent and still. I felt a sense of unease wash over me as I realized that I was alone with this unknown person.
I stepped back, ready to turn and run, but the man reached out and grabbed my arm. He pulled me close to him, and I could feel his breath on my face.
"I've been waiting for you," he whispered.
I attempted to pull away, yet he was serious areas of strength excessively. I couldn't escape his grip.
"Please let me go," I begged.
The man didn't respond. He simply stared at me with cold, dark eyes. I could feel my heart pounding in my chest as I realized that this was not a man I wanted to be alone with.
Out of nowhere, I heard the sound of strides behind me. I turned to see a group of people approaching. They were dressed in black, just like the man in front of me. They had come out of nowhere, and I had no idea who they were or what they wanted.
The man released me, and I ran towards the group, hoping they would help me. But as I reached them, they turned and walked away, leaving me alone with the unknown person.
I turned back to the man, but he was gone. I searched the alley but there was no sign of him. I was alone again, lost in the dark and cold night.
I walked back to the street, confused and frightened. I had no idea what had just happened or why the man had taken an interest in me. I couldn't shake the feeling that I was being watched, even though I was alone.
I started to walk again, determined to find my way home. But I couldn't shake the feeling that I was being followed. I turned around and looked back but there was no one there.
As I walked, I passed by a dark alleyway and heard a noise. I turned to look and saw a man standing in the shadows. He was tall and dressed in black. I felt a chill run down my spine.
I knew it was the same man from before.
I animated my speed, expecting to put some distance between us. But no matter how fast I walked, he always seemed to be just behind me.
I reached my house and quickly went inside, locking the door behind me. I knew that I wasn't safe yet. I needed to know who this...
