Obsession: Provoking

“Hold up one sec,” I try to process this, “Are you saying he hurt you?”

“Yes, I am. I’m here to warn you, Gabe. I know, its random, but I needed for you to be alone and found you here,” she pulls her shirt back up and walked away.

Wait! Don’t go, I need to know more! I can’t get the words out of my mouth. I’m scared that Jared is even more dangerous than I had thought.
There isn’t anything left to do. I couldn’t get away from him. Avoiding him only made it worse, and if I stuck too close I could get hurt, like Shannen. So what to do… My phone rings Jueli’s tone.

“Hey, where’d you go?” She asks her voice filled with concern

“I had to get out, but it didn’t help,”

“What happened?”

“Someone told me to watch out. Thats he’s dangerous,” It’s hard for me to repeat that.

Silence. I can tell Jueli is just as surprised.

“At least you’re safe in one place, right?” she says.

“Yeah, ho—” I cannot believe my eyes, “—me. Jueli, I’ll call you back.” I see Jared sitting in my house.
