So I Just Watched
by Terrie Leigh Relf
My neighbor was in the shower again, hot water misting up the window, pretty blonde hair clinging to her face and shoulders. She was banging on the window, screaming: “Please, somebody help! He’s going to kill me for sure this time!”
A shadow approached behind her . . . and then blood, all that blood splattering the walls, the window, dripping down her face. I knew she saw me, but what could I do?
So this time, I just plugged in my iTunes and watched . . . After all, she’d been dead for months.
