    I'd be walking home after school

    and I'll hear footsteps behind me. I'll tell myself it's just someone who happens to be walking the same way as me. As the footsteps get closer my heartbeat speeds up and so does my breathing. I try to walk faster and so do they and when I finally turn around to see who it is...

    Spies.. and Worse

    I have to look over my shoulder all the time. It always feels like somethings behind me, following me, watching my moves. If I ever got my hands on something or someone following me I'd let it know it was a bad idea. Damn creepy crawlies.

    This Feeling Really Sucks.

    Today just like any other day, on my way home from school after getting my lunch I park close to my house on the street and a white honda parks behind me. Semi far, so I couldn't really distinguish the person face. While I was eating the sub sandwitch, I ...
