It was midnight when she woke up. It was chilly out there and her body was strangely cold. Weird because it was summer and it had been mercilessly hot. The surrounding wasn't familiar either. How did she reach there? Standing up on her feet, she felt immense pain in her body. She had scratches all over her. Shit! She had told Amanda about someone watching over her. Arghh!!! She shouldn't have. She wanted to run away but where to? She didn't even know where she was. All she saw were shadows. Not one but thousands of them and they were all coming towards her. Panic-stricken she hoped this could be a dream. She must be hallucinating. Right? This couldn't be true. She pinched herself hard in the hope to wake up but it was no dream. She could feel the pinch and the shadows were still there. Welcome to Finale of the short Thriller series : Double Trouble. Hope you guys like it.
It was hard for her to not know who she was. She wanted to be left alone but again there was always this hunch that someone was staring at her. She could see the shadow but couldn't make any sense of it. In her subconscious mind, she knew what it was but was afraid to acknowledge it. She even informed this to her doctor but he had said it was all in her imagination. Like really? How imaginative could one be after memory loss? Things were fine, initially. It was only when she started noticing things when she woke up one morning. It felt like someone had slept beside her. The sheets were all ruffled up. She remembered locking her door before going off to sleep and as a matter of fact who would sleep? Her mother wasn't the kind to invade her privacy. This soon became a routine and she couldn't help but get paranoid over little things now. The presence felt oddly familiar. Taking her medicines would calm her a little but was it going to her in the long run? This is part 1 of the short series and Finale will be up in 2 days from now.Stay Tuned!!!
Truly said, Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus. Can they ever think alike? Can they ever respond to a situation in a similar way? Or do we have to make commends with this aspect itself that their will be differences and lots of compromises to make a relationship work. Yes, they broke up but will that give them the answers that they were looking for? Only time will tell if they miss being together. What will be they prefer? Trapped In Love Or Wrapped In Love ? Stay Tuned.
Trapped In Love Or Wrapped In Love? Loosing yourself is not the option. 3 years into the relationship, he could still manage to give her those butterfly feelings in her stomach. Being around Ryan meant the world to her. He was the most caring person she had ever met. It was genuine and she could feel it. He was her go to person for everything. She just knew they were meant to be together. He always brought out the best of her. To be fair, the worst as well and she couldn’t help it. She was trying hard not to complicate things between them but seemed to fail anyways. Somewhere the chord wasn’t tuning in perfectly as it used to be. Since when did things become so complicated? She wasn't doing something wrong. Or was she?
Trapped In Love Or Wrapped In Love? Keeping the book aside , he realized she wasn't one of those out of the world gorgeous girl that the books he read mostly stated. Thank God for that. He always felt the books and movies exaggerated everything. The beautiful girl, the handsome boy. Their perfect relationship. Why on earth do they attempt so hard to raise the standard of expectation of how perfect something can be? It's fine to not be perfect. How glad he was that Kathy was just a normal-decent girl with a take on life for everything. Just the kind of girl he wanted. Beautiful in and out. Always high on life. A bit of moody though, now that he knew her so well. A bit too well. He could know what mood she was in just by the way she replied to his texts. If life was treating them so well then what was it that was bothering him? He loved her, she loved him. That's all that matters. Right? Wrong. Sometimes too much of love could also suffocate you.
~There she was as a kid, playing happily with her mom and dad. Her dad giving her a horse ride on his back. She loved it. Now she hardly called them and felt guilty. ~There she was gossiping with her college friends who were once her lifeline. They would share every little secret(even the dark ones) with each other. Now she hardly knew where they even lived. ~There she was, her boyfriends arm wrapped upon her and the safest place in this world. She loved it how he would tease her and pull her chubby cheeks. She did love him then and still loved him. Only if she had not let him go.
I started my car in a hurry and sped away from the place as fast as I could. I was speeding and kept telling myself, it's just in your mind Ellie. Just when I thought things were getting better my car broke down. It was a strange place but luckily for me I could see a car repair shop just a few blocks away. I had no choice but to get drenched and run towards the shop. Two extra happy service men greeted me cheerfully as if glad to see a soul. I explained my condition to them. They agreed to help me. So along they came with me where I had my car. Or at least that's where I thought I had my car. They looked confused as well. We walked in for a little while and there it was. But that couldn't be my car. Could it? It was all crumpled and looked like it had been through some sort of accident. Did it happen after I left the car? Wow, that was such a close call.

She sat on the bus. The driver looked at her from the rear mirror and suddenly she felt smaller than a peanut. It looked like people were staring at her. She sat up straight. She analysed it was the right time for her hand sanitizer act. She quickly searched her bag for that and pressed the pump a little bit. Massaging her palms together she started looking outside the window. She felt a lot more confident now.
