The Prey Ch7: Don’t look up

“That’s where I started to crack. An office party to celebrate reaching our quota for the year much sooner than projected. The boss being lively and getting to feel like ‘one of us’ everyone actually talking, instead of ‘working’ to one another. Me, Evan, just having 8 drinks too many. And Her. Making out with him on the dance floor. I knew I should have come. I tossed my drink back behind me, not caring for who it might have hit, and took the elevator down to be bitter else where. Of course… That’s too much to ask. “Hey… Why Read more »

“……..You sleeping, Man?” Spoke the tomboyish voice of the woman who was now sitting beside Evan when he reopened his eyes, turning to look into hers at his left. “Good. We’re going to need to talk more about what happened in full detail, but for now, you need to go to your job, and keep your best friend from calling any nosy people to barge in to this… Lovely home of yours.” She said with a thick hint of sarcasm as she looked around.

“Where is Evan?! He’s never been late before!” Hill yelled as he power walked down the hall of the office floor of the building. Sweat on his brow like the heat was on in the well air conditioned office, tugging at the collar of his suit, brand named something or another, but simply expensive to others. He looked to the cubicles for answers from men and women to busy with their own work to be concerned about the dilemma that seemed to have their boss worried.

[It was as dark as midnight outside by the time Evan’s panicked sprint got him to the apartment building he lived in, cars still moving around as if it were only a midday. It was needless to say it was rather loud, since their was also a train running above the main street he lived on.

The Prey: Ch3 Enter the Rabbit’s Hole

  [A daylight blue sky had grown darker in a short time, street lights coming to life one shortly after the other. The smell was every kind of unclean of expired mess that one could expect to find in such a place. Trash cans and dumpsters that don’t look like they’ve ever been clean a day after they were placed sit firmly where they were overflowing with the waste and unwanted of the area’s denizens. A total of 5 exits to the street, leaving no way out for anyone to have gotten stuck inside.][Around eight o’clock… Somewhere… People were opening Read more »
