He Came in Through the Bathroom Window

The phone rang at four a.m., echoing into the night. She rolls away, burying her face in the pillow’s secure embrace – he sits, watching her house, silently begging her to answer his desires.

Another Trifecta 33 word story using the prompt: The phone rang at four a.m. I hope you like it…

    Oh my. Stalker or ex-boyfriend, or both? Nicely done!

  2. This made me first think of a desperate lover, someone who’s not getting enough of her time. Then? Someone on the verge of ‘stalker’. Then? It made me think about something I wrote, called “Turned Around”. If you get a moment, there’s a search box at the bottom of my blog where you can find it. And then you’ll know why this distracted me to laughter. Lover, stalker, then a place where…well…this is what my crazy head thinks.
    Either way? Of course I loved it.
    Came from the Trifextra linkup.

    Well done!

    The title definitely seals the creepiness. I was thinking maybe she was holding out on forgiving a good guy…

    This is how some people get hurt physically by not taking him seriously.

    Yikes! Well played. I especially liked the audio image of “echoing into the night.”

    I always answer my phone. I can’t help it. It is never on the floor we sleep on, and I nearly never catch it. Good think I’m not stalker bait, and never really have been. =)
