Chapter 11 - Taken.
I’d noticed the two people following me when I stepped off the train at the 116th Station. A man and a woman. She about my age and he maybe ten years older. He was wearing a suit whereas the woman looked more like a tourist. She had an I heart New York hoodie on over a pair of jeans. I’d gotten up fairly last minute and let the crowd of students drag me off the train with them. They’d almost panicked and jumped off just as the doors were closing. At the time I had written it off as two people who hadn’t been paying enough attention to where they were going.
I saw them again while I was in my office. I’d been typing away, writing up a paper and I got up to open the window to let some fresh air in. They were out on the lawn at the front of the building talking to each other. The guy was smoking a cigarette and they both looked really bored.
That time I was a little more concerned. Not strongly but I took note. It was strange they were out there when I’d noticed them on the train too, and on the train, they didn’t seem to know each other. I put them at the back of my head and went back to work. When I came out from lunch they were still out there, standing on opposite sides of the lawn out the front of the building.
