1.) The Police said it best when they said, “Every breath you take/And every move you make/Every bond you break, every step you take/I’ll be watching you”. Write about a time you believed someone was watching you.
I don't tell this story often, but I once had a stalker.
I was a lifeguard in my early twenties and in easily the best shape of my life. I worked outdoors in a swimsuit and swam at least half a mile every day.
Thinking back, I was way more stalker-worthy than I am right now in my mid-thirties with added baby-weight. (If Chris were here, he would dutifully & lovingly point out that I have two significantly larger assets that I lacked when I was lifeguarding)
Back to the story...
One day, I was leaving work & headed out to my car when I noticed a note on my windshield.
There was no signature.
The message was fairly vague, just letting me know that someone was watching me & that they'd like to get together soon.
My friends & I have unusual senses of humor, so I assumed it was a friend pulling a prank. Everybody knew where I worked & I'd often have people come by & visit during the day. I put the note in my glove box & called it a day.
A day or two later, I got a phone call from one of my friends. She wanted to let me know that a guy who had once stalked her was out of JAIL and trying to contact her again. He mentioned that he saw her working WHERE I WORKED and she wanted to let me know (I was the only female that even remotely looked similar to her).
She had already contacted the police and I told her about the note.
So, my one & only stalker wasn't even stalking me.
I never got another note on windshield.
