Choose Your Mistakes #3
You chose to run home. This was too weird, better safe than sorry.
“Yeah, you know what? You do that. You stay exactly there,” You said, stepping onto the street to move around him. “Don’t move at all. That would be great.” The man shrugged, still grinning like there was a joke I didn’t get.
“Please, be my guest. You wont stay away from me for long.”
You edged carefully around the shadow of the extinguished streetlight, and the green haired man lurking beneath it, not trusting him to leave you alone. You kept glancing back as you walked away, waiting for him to move, but he only lurched from one side to the other. Once you were satisfied that you were far enough away, you broke into a jog. You couldn’t get home fast enough, this was just too weird. Besides, it was getting darker.
