Right Under Your Nose

Extracts from this document...


Right under your nose The figure of a woman stood in an oak surrounded window staring out upon the vast mass of ocean, waves crashing high above the rocks. She herself was being looked upon. She moved from the window and slowly sat down in front of the ever glazing fire. Embers rose and heat filled the room. She quickly drifted into a well deserved sleep. A sudden and loud knock on the door woke her. She ran down the creaky stairs and opened the door, but to her surprise nothing was there. She returned to the living room. Her mind began racing. Where was he? Why hadn't he come home? But it was a mystery to her. But then she thought again.

She stood for a moment wondering whether she was just being stupid and should just return inside the house. She didn't understand but she knew now that she couldn't just be imagining a note, it was solid hard proof in her hands, that supernatural things were happening to her.

He wiped it clean with her handkerchief and placed it back inside his pocket. He then walked over to his car opened the boot and flung the girl in as if she was just a dirty rubbish bag. He looked around and then slammed the car boot shut. She began to feel dizzy again. What was happening? The girl was stood in front of her. She muttered five words and then disappeared. "It was him, stop him!" The woman felt the sensation she had earlier in the day. She needed to run, so she did, all the way back to her house. Why did everything appear so innocent? There had been murders and the worst thing was, it was her husband that had committed them. What was she going to do? What could she do? ...read more.
