Someone is after me. In each and every moment I cling to the hope I will receive some type of relief from the suspense. If this person wants to destroy me, I wish they’d just do it already. Once all the pieces have fallen I can figure out how to mitigate the damage. Until then, I am a sitting duck just waiting to be shot. It’s scarier knowing the bullet is coming at me because it means there’s a tiny chance the shooter will miss. That little glimpse of hope makes it all the more painful when you discover the executioner has perfect aim.
I am out admittedly out of moves. Left, right, up, down, they all end the same way at this point. Going to the police will cause a release of the video. I can’t tell Evelyn Bellamy. She’s either the culprit or she will lawyer her way out of my employee contract. She can’t be seen hiring someone who stole company information. For the record, I’m still not sure why she couldn’t get the information herself. I can’t tell my parents. They would be so ashamed of me. I cant tell Gen because it will ruin our friendship. Knowing her, she’d call me Evelyn’s puppet and probably want nothing to do with me. I could tell Kris and Dyl, but something is holding me back. I don’t know if it’s lack of trust or what but I can’t bring myself to do it. Besides, I don’t want to drag them down with me. The one person I truly feel like I can trust is all the way in Florida, and the one person I truly think is smart enough to help me come up with a solution isn’t talking to me anymore. I don’t want to bother Claire and I can’t go back to Alicia. She wants nothing to do with me.
It’s fairly obvious this person wants something from me, otherwise they would have gone straight to the police. Maybe they just want to mess with me. Maybe they want to feel they are doling out justice like a vigilante. Either way, once they tell me what they want, I have to make an important decision; should I fight or should I accept the consequences of my actions? I could comply with their demands and let them play me, or I could use whatever information they give me to try and figure out who they are. Every bit of information is a clue and every clue is a step closer. Their demands will have motives which could give me an indication of who they are and how I can manipulate the situation. But none of these possibilities exist yet. I have to wait for their next move.
