20. Chapter 20


Hayden crossed her legs, holding up the canvas.

Adele’s alluring voice sounding even more magnificent through the speakers she set up on her nightstand

She honestly had no idea what she was going to draw. She walked to her laptop that was on her bed and started looking for some inspiration or ideas that she could use.

Her room was lit by fairy lights surrounding the wall, reminding her of creepers

Her cell phone vibrated and she groaned into her pillow, using her feet to pull it closer to lazy to us any other muscle in her body.

She was alone at home because Adrianna went to see her parents for the week, she asked Hayden if she wanted to come but she politely declined the offer so the house was hers for a week.

Her mind kept on wondering to Russell no matter how many times she tried not to let the thoughts of him linger they still did.

She walked to her canvas and picked up a charcoal crayon she put in an old jelly bean jar she found.

She started the lining of her painting, slowly rubbing the crayon up and down. She found her inspiration.

Her doorbell rang and she put the charcoal down, rubbing her fingers on the black jeans she had decided to pair with an old ugly t-shirt she bought

She made her way downstairs, knocking her hip into the small table in the hall way

She swung the door open and a large man dressed in black was standing before her

“Can I help you?” she asked closing the door a little bit

“Can I come in?” he asked smiling looking at her up and down “I’m a friend of Adriana’s”

“She’s not here” Hayden answered trying not to show how scared she actually was “Can I take a message?”

The man’s face turned into a frown

Hayden was about to close the door but he set his large foot between the door making it hard for her to close it

“You’re Hayden right” he asked her stepping in

“Could you please leave” she asked stepping closer to the phone hooked on the wall

The man noticed her moving towards the wall and stepped forward “I wouldn’t do that” and just as she lurched forward he pulled her back by her hair making her land on her back hard

“I know you” he taunted grabbing Ryan’s baseball bat from the back of the door “Your Hayden”

“That punk Russell’s girlfriend” he sneered “I’m I right?” he asked grazing her leg with the bat

When she didn’t answer he swung the bat high and hit her leg, she let out an ear piercing scream that the whole neighbourhood heard

Her eyes filled with tears and fell down her face rapidly

“Do you know what your little boyfriend does for a leaving huh?” he pulled her hair making the top half of her body rise off the ground

“No?” he continued

“He kills people, now it’s nothing personal but I have to kill you”

“Please d-” she tried speaking but he back handed her hard

“I didn’t allow you to speak now did I?”


He kicked her hard in her stomach making her release another scream and he hit her again

“Stop screaming” he shouted kicking her wherever his foot landed

He lifted her body pinning it against the wall, holding her neck, her small fingers tried to pry them off her neck

“You’re very sexy you know that” he said trailing his finger under her top “he sure picked a good one”

“Please” she cried, feeling her throat constricted and she started seeing dots

He started to undo her jeans button and then she heard a gunshot and dropped to the floor harshly

“Run Hayden” She heard Elliot shout and she tried standing up, when she finally did she started limping towards the phone only to be pulled back down, hitting her head on the corner of the table

"Hayden, Hayden get up" She heard Adrianna talking in the back ground but she was struggling. Why was she home soon

"Leave" Hayden whispered, she could get hurt.

"I need you to get up now" Adrianna pushed but Hayden just couldn't stand up

Elliot was fighting him and then he got stabbed in the stomach, his body slowly fell to the ground body covered in blood with a knife in his side and the man’s sick smile limping towards her and Adrianna

"Move" he spat talking to Adrianna but she refused to move

"Fine by me then"

she heard him loading bullets into the gun and she tried to push Adrianna away with everything she had but she wouldn't budge

"P-please" she begged her tears falling down her face

Everything happened in slow motion and he pulled the trigger a gun shot echoing in the small house they lived in

She felt Adrianna's body become limp and she collapsed on top of her

Hayden felt helpless and the only thing she could do was stare in a state

Her eyes started to feel heavy and the last thing she saw was the man walking toward her with Elliot's gun in one hand and the other on his gunshot wound, a sick smile playing on his face
