Short story

Short story

  • Tuesday, Oct 11th. – The Tail

  • Today they made contact with me. I went to the book store. I was looking for a good book to pass the time. I was there for about 10 minutes just browsing the shelf. I noticed a guy, he was around 25. He was wearing a black t- shirt with jeans. He had a fake mohawk. I say fake because he had a normal short haircut, but used hair gel to slick it up into a mohawk style. I noticed he was looking at me from a few isles away. I went back to looking at the books. I saw movement off to my right and turned to look that way. There he was, approaching me. He held out two packs of cigarettes in the palm of one hand. They had an Indian head wearing a headress logo on them. He asked if I wanted to buy them. He told me he bought them at a cigar shop. I told him I didnt want them. He didnt approach anybody else and left the store. I thought it was peculiar. They are following me.
