i used to hang round with a guy many years ago. i would have done anything for him and he was the same with me. we used to hang round together every day..we worked together so he used to pick me up and drop me back off home. many years ago i did used to take speed a hell of a lot and i used to drink very heavy. one day we just got in the car and drove..he knew i had always wanted to go to Stonehenge so as a surprise he took me. we had a great time. then after that things started getting weird. he got clingy with me and didn't like me looking at other men or women. he seemed to be trying to hide me away from everyone. i just put it down to him being protective of me as i was going through a messy divorce. then one day we had been out drinking and taking speed..we pulled onto a pub car park.it was raining really heavy and i can remember making a joke about wetting myself..then out of the blue he asked me to marry him!!!! i couldn't believe it...we hadn't even kissed...i saw him as a big brother and assumed he saw me as a little sister. i didn't know what to say so i just asked him to take me home. he drove really fast. more than usual. we didn't speak for the whole journey which was about 45 mins. finally when we pulled up outside my house i turned to him and said i loved him but only as a friend.which was 100% true...he pushed me out the car and slammed the door and sped off. i went into the house not thinking anything more about it.just putting it down to the drink and drugs.then about 10 mins later his mom phoned me screaming i was a **** and a ***** and was only using him!!!!! i was completely devastated...so i reacted the only way i knew at the time...i screamed down the phone and hung up....another 5 mins later and the phone went again. i knew it was her so i wouldn't pick up. my nan answered and the colour drained out of her face...she dropped the phone and told me to get out as fast as i could and hide....turns out my "best friend" was coming round my house with a knife and he had told his mom that he was going to stab me then himself...of course i panicked..my first thought was to get me nan out the house...i somehow managed to get her to the neighbors and phone the police.....they caught him at the top of my street with a 13 inch hunting knife...although i don't understand why this happened i don't hate him..not even to this day..the only thing I'm grateful for is that phone call off him mom. she saved my life.
