Finish off Friday #6: Footsteps in the Fog 20.01.17

Footsteps echoed eerily in the fog. Over my shoulder I couldn’t see anything. They seemed to be getting closer. When I stopped walking so did the steps.

I stopped near the entrance where a light shone and looked back. There was someone there. A tall man, dark coat, hat pulled down low. He stopped when he saw me. Startled that I was watching him.

Standing there he turned and walked away.

I continued on my way. I thought I’d shaken him. Then I heard the steps again. Before long I could hear his heavy breathing.

Closer and closer he came. I walked quicker. So did he. Finally, I couldn’t stand it another second. I turned to face him.

“Thank goodness,” he said puffing into my face, “I think this wallet is yours.”

    Silly man following…why didn’t he yell out, “Hey, you dropped this.” LOL guess that would have spoiled the tale 🙂

    Very good Michael. We seem to have similar ideas for our stories. Except in mine, the girl forgot her clutch at the bar. I’m happy things ended well for both 🙂
