Chapter 7: It's Over Part 1
It's Over Part 1
Lucinda wakes up to still see police officers outside her room, she slowly breathes while looking at her phone at the edge of the bed. She reaches for it, and as she is about to grab it she hears a knock on her door “Huh” she begins to breathe heavily. “Co...” she can't get the words out, she was still trying to process the shock, “Come in” she said as she wiped sweat from her face. It was Deion and Sarah.
“Hey, how ya feeling?” He asked as he rubbed her back.
“I'm just ready to be out of this hospital” ,She said as Sarah sat down next to her.
“Your mom had us worried”, Sarah said as she looked at Lucinda's phone, “Have you checked it, since you got that message?” She asked her.
“No, I haven't”, Lucinda said to her as she laid back.
“Well, I mean it's been two days, and everything has been quite even at school, people are still talking though” Deion crossed his arms.
“I'm not surprised, how are you guys?” She asked them.
“Someone tried to kill us, I don't know about Sarah, but I'm feeling like Randy Meeks at this moment”, he said as sighed.
“Any news on who killed Donna?” Lucinda asked as Sarah looked away.
“Sarah, if you don't want to talk about this, we can change the subject” Lucinda grabbed her hand.
“No, it's okay, and no they haven't found anything out”, Sarah said.
“Did the police check your phone?” Deion asked her as he picks it up.
“Yeah, they're doing something to it, I don't know, I just don't want to check it” Lucinda sits up.
“You have to check it sometime, you can't be scared. I mean he or whoever is out there wants us to be scared” Deion looked at both of them.
“One thing, I am not getting, why?” Lucinda asked out loud.
“Why what?” Sarah asked her.
“Why us? I still can't piece anything together, Destiny's death, my attack, Allens, yours, Donna's death. There is just something we're not seeing” Lucinda slowly grabs her phone. She can feel her heart beating.
“Lucinda, you don't have to, not yet” Deion tried to stop her, but she turns her phone on.
“I need to see the number on the phone” She said.
“Why? I mean the police already checked it, what can you see that they didn't?” Sarah asked her.
“I don't know, but you all know that in these type of situations that the police do not do their job correctly or they miss something that the main character always has to see”. Lucinda waits for it come on. “I know I just went from 0-200, but I'm not about to play cat and mouse with some sick twisted bastard” the phones comes on. Lucinda did not show it, but she was afraid of what messages or calls were going to appear on it. She was able to breathe easily as there was no messages on the phone. She goes to the messages. “Why would he write, I killed you?” Lucinda asked them.
“I don't know, mind games” Deion answered her.
“There is something more to this” Lucinda said to herself.
“But what?” Sarah asked, and Deion looked at the message.
“Let's not talk about this now, not with the cops right outside the door” Deion said.
“Why?” Sarah asked.
“Classic horror film fact, when the police know something, the killer or bad guy always knows somehow too” Deion smiled at them.
“You're right, so are we playing by rules?” Sarah asked him.
“I would have to say that he is playing a game I think he likes a classic film more than a remake”
Lucinda is checked out of the hospital that day.
“Hey mom” she said as she comes into her house.
“Lucinda, I said I was going to come and pick you up” Her mother said to her.
“It was okay Sam and D dropped me off” Lucinda said as she looked at the mail on the table.
“Do I have any mail?” She asked her as she grabs an apple.
Lucinda reaches a piece of mail with her name on it, but her mother snatches it away from her, “Mom give it to me” Lucinda said to her.
“I don't think you need to see this” she said to her, Lucinda snatches it out of her hand and she looks at the front.
“This is from destiny, it's the letter she wrote when she went away, it had gotten lost in the mail” Lucinda wipes a tear away from her face and just stuffs it into her back pocket.
“Are you okay?” Her mother asked her.
“I don't know, but I know I'm going out tonight with my friends, were just going to hang out at Sarah's house” Lucinda said to her mother.
“Have your cellphone on at all times” her mother as she walked out the door.
“Okay mom” Lucinda said.
“Alright mom, I'll call you every 30 minutes okay” Lucinda smiled as she walked out the door, and her mother smiled too.
Lucinda makes to the backyard gate, but she hears something behind her, she turns around quickly, but no one is there, she takes a deep breath she reaches for the gate, but before she could open it something grabbed her from behind knocking her out. Lucinda wakes up in a large room with a wall of glass, she tries to break it.
“Hello!” she screams, but no one answers, but she feels her phone vibrate in her pocket she takes it out, and her heart drops as the text reads “IT'S NOT OVER” she drops the phone as lights come on and she sees another room with her cousin Allen knocked out and tied to chair.
“Allen wake up!!” Lucinda calls his name, but he does not hear her, and then she sees a door open and she hears the scratching of a knife on the walls, her phone gets another text message she picks up her phone and opens the message, and it reads “How loud can you scream?”
