**This takes place after chapter one of The Roundhead and before chapter two**
“It’s not like that I swear!” He says as he runs a hand through his hair in frustration.
“Bullshit Javier, don’t treat me like I’m fucking stupid!” She says as she shoves her way out of the bathroom past him, he throws his hands in the air as his back hits the wall.
“For god sake Sam, I came right over, just like you asked, even though this town is going crazy, I came right fucking over and all you want to do is have an argument over this, now?”
“Why the fuck not NOW?”
“Because I said, we’ll talk about it later!”
“Well later ain’t going to happen, just tell me one thing, one truth, that’s all I want and you can go fucking running off like the little pathetic puppy you are to her side like you always do!”
“No, we’re not discussing it, not now,” he says as he bites into his bottom lip and shoves his hands in his pockets making fists.
“Just fucking tell me, are you fucking her or not? That’s all I want to know?” She screams, his phone vibrates and it’s default theme blares from his pocket as a call comes through, he looks at her and she laughs.
“Just as I thought, it’s probably your little bitch on the phone right now, calling for her toy boy, answer the slut!” He slaps her across the face and she laughs harder. “What? The truth too hard for you, why don’t you get the fuck out before I call Clive and tell him what his wife is really up to!”
“Samantha, please, you’ve got it all…”
“Bullshit! I should’ve seen it a long time ago, get out!” She yells as she rips open the door to her apartment and stands there as tears run down her face. “Get out and don’t ever come back!”
He stands there for a few moments before he storms towards the door, stopping in the doorway he turns and looks up at her, he goes to cup her face in his hand but she pulls away.
“I-I’m sorry,” he says.
“Does it make you feel better!” She screams as she slams the door in his face, his phone rings again and he pulls out, looking at the caller id, then stuffs it back into his pocket as he slowly walks down the hallway, towards the stairs.
While inside the apartment she slides down the door as the tears stream down her face and she pulls out her phone, quickly going through her contacts, until she finally presses on a number. But, before it can be answered she ends the call, screams in anger, then throws the phone across the room, it smashes into the side of a table and crashes to the floor. For a few minutes she sits there, crying in her hands, before she finally pulls herself to her feet and picks her phone up off the ground, a large crack now running through the screens centre, she growls with annoyance. It takes a few moments for the phone to respond to her commands, but once it does she checks to make sure it still works and then logs into her Facebook, quickly posting an update that simply says ‘why are men such arseholes?’ As she makes her way to the couch she begins to flick though the items on her wall and presses on a shared post that leads her to a weblog, that she begins reading. The next twenty minutes seem to fly by, as she reads the story, letting out a small giggle every now and then, until finally she reaches the end. She lets out a relaxed sigh, presses share on the story, and goes back to look at the five comments that her earlier post has gained so far.
‘so it’s true?’ one of the comments say, ‘what a prick, you should’ve left him a long time ago’ says another and then a new comment is posted, from someone she can’t even remember seeing on her friends list before, and all it says is ‘it’s coming’ The lights in her apartment flicker and then go out, leaving her sitting in the dark.
“Fucking great!” She hisses as she switches her phone’s torch feature on, and sucks in a deep breath as a small girl sits beside her on the couch, slowly, the girl turns to face her, her skin pale, her eyes black, like pools of oil, and then she begins to speak.
DEATH WILL NOT BE YOUR ESCAPE.
