The Walk Home

by Shirley McLain

The author has placed a warning on this post for violence.

Why did I decide to walk home?     
 My brain must be slipping a cog or two.
This neighborhood is downright creepy.
April quickened her steps.
An alley cat screamed, causing her to jump.
Never will I walk home again.
Twenty feet past the alley, April, heard footsteps.
She picked up her pace, and the steps quickened also.
Then a soft voice began in her head.
“Little girl, you want to play with me. I want to play with you.”
April screamed as arms grabbed her from behind.
A fiery, stinging burn began on her neck.
The world blackened to nothingness.
