You were walking alone at night through the streets of Italy. As you were walking you see a dark shadow in front of you. Sadly, this didn't freak you out as much as it did last month. You had a stalker and you knew it, but you didn't do anything about because of your fear of the stalker hurting you. You always acted calm like he was never there although every time he came even an inch closer, it always made the hairs on the back of your neck rise.
This time was different, every day you wondered who this mystery person was. Was it a girl, a boy, tall, short, but most of all….. What did they want?
As you were walking you slowed your pace as you turned the corner, as you turned you positioned yourself so when your follower turned the corner they would bump into you.
Finally, the mystery person turned the corner and in under a second were inches away from your face.
You froze in your spot as those crazy eyes stared into your soul. They weren't the eyes of a killer, but they certainly weren't sane. At that moment you knew you had to act.
You ran straight to your apartment, a bolt to shelter where that creep can't reach you.
You reached your apartment and opened the door as fast as you could and ran to your bed and hid under the covers.You felt safe for a second, like nothing could hurt you, like that creep is being held back by someone.
The phone suddenly rang and you jumped at the loud ring.
You picked up the phone hoping for the familiar sound of your best friend. Sadly that wasn't the voice on the other end.
"Hello _________, you saw me, whatcha think of me?" He asked with a suggestive voice.
You slammed the phone closed and threw it across the room. His eyes, it only took one look to drive you insane, it was haunting you.
That night you were up all night just pacing up and down your apartment. Every little sound made you jump, you even carried a knife just in case he broke in.
You wonder how he got your number, but then you started to think about it even more, what else might he have. You search your room and find something missing, the teddy bear you got when you were 5.
You search everywhere; it was really special to you since it was given to you from your first crush.
It was finally morning and you sadly had to go to school, the school wasn't too far but it creeped you to go anywhere without anybody with you.
Eventually you talked yourself into leaving and you ran, but running didn't get rid of him. He was on the corner of ________ Ave and __________Rd waiting for you. Just the feeling of his cold eyes on you made you shudder.
Your eyes were glued at the end of the day. 10 minutes left. 5 minutes left. 4,3,2,1 RIIIINNNNGGGG. You bolted to your locker and got your stuff so you could leave with the crowd but that only left you stuck in the huge group of people at the doors. You decided to wait at the lobby for people to leave.
As you were sitting down you drifted to sleep due to the lack of sleep last night.
The janitor of the school woke you up roughly 3 hours later, you check the clock and it is 7 o'clock. You check out the window seeing the man you see every day holding your favorite teddy bear.
You slowly started to walk when you felt a cold hand on your shoulder. You froze in your spot.
The man dragged you into an ally and pinned you up to the wall, "Hello gorgeous, missed me?"
"W-what do y-you want?" you said shakily, frightened by the man.
"Oh nothing, as long as I am allowed to have you" He said pressing you even harder to the wall.
"HEY YOU LET THE RAGAZZA GO!" You turn your head to see a man running towards you. He had auburn eyes and chocolate brown hair with a strange curl sticking out, he was clearly from her due to his think Italian accent. "UNHAND HER!"
"Make me" the follower said letting go of you to talk to the Italian. "What is it to you?"
"Just do what I say you bastard" He said as he shoved the follower to the ground. "Or I will kill you"
By now you are already behind a nearby dumpster waiting for all this to end.
"That's cute, but fine she can go this time, but know she won't be safe forever" He said with a large grin on his face.
The Italian bent down to talk to the man, "You are sick you creep" he said as he punched him across the face.
The stalker got up and ran away with blood dripping behind him as he ran.
"Thank you so much, I owe you" You said walking up to the Italian from the dumpster.
"You sure do, but not now, now I am hungry, do you have any plans now" The Italian asked.
"No…" you said lightly blushing.
"Then you're coming with me for dinner" He said walking towards the exit of the alley.
"Um may I know your name?" You said quietly as you followed him to the restaurant. Lovino Vargas, but you can call me Romano" He said still walking at his quick pace.
"By the way is this yours?" He said holding out your teddy bear.
"Yes thank you" You said taking the teddy bear. As you hugged the teddy bear, you thought to yourself, "Just like it was when I was young"
