Paranoia As the phone rang, Chloe stared at it, wide eyed, frozen with fear. She let it ring; she knew who it was. A shiver ran down her spine as questions raced through her mind like they did every time the phone rang. 'Is he here? Can he see me? Is he watching me right now?' Chloe turned the television volume up; tried to ignore the answer machine as it automatically switched on. But the voice that followed after the beep was not the low, husky voice she had expected to hear. "Hi Chloe, it's Mum," came her mothers singsong voice from the speaker on the small grey box. Chloe was still sitting on the sofa, still staring at the phone, more surprised than anything. It was the first time in three months when the phone had rang and Chloe had been at home alone and the caller wasn't him. "Just phoning to check that you're all right." ...read more.


It was amazing how two minutes of her life had affected her so badly. Chloe looked around, just to make sure that no one was there, watching her. Still she was unsure. She ran upstairs to check on her brother and sister and peeked round the doorways to their bedrooms to find they were both sound asleep. Chloe closed the door with a sigh of relief.

"Hey Chloe," came the soft, raspy voice. Chloe couldn't move. ...read more.


He had heard. "But I thought you didn't want to be alone," came his calm voice from the machine. With this, Chloe stormed over and pulled the plug from its socket. He knocked on the door again. 'I have to get out of here.' Chloe scanned her surroundings, desperately trying to find a means of escape. She needed a plan. 'The dining room! How could I be so stupid?" she asked herself. "The French doors in the dining room!" Chloe heard another knock on the door. She ran through to the hall, grabbed her mobile phone, car keys, purse and coat, then dashed back to the dining room, fumbling with the keys, hopelessly trying to find the right one for the French doors. She reached the doors. 'Ah, found it.' She inserted the key into the lock. Turned it and then looked up. Two glowing eyes stared back at her through the glass. The same two eyes she had seen eight weeks ago when he attacked her. Chloe screamed as the man who stood there smiled evilly. "I've got you now" he mouthed through the glass. ...read more.
