Strings- Part 3

It's been two weeks since the party, and I'm beginning to think that my own time might be getting short.
I have had a shadow for the past few days, and it appears that the holder of my string has found me.
I blame the newscast for this, but I can't say I wasn't blameless. I let myself get swept up by my own small amount of celebrity. I got sloppy, and it came back to bite me. It appears I've made myself an easy target.
A few days after Gabe's party, I got a call from the local news outlet. They wanted to talk about Adriana's murder, and someone from the police department had leaked them my information. I agreed to tell them what I could about it, and they set up a time and a place for the interview. Apparently, the story had really taken off after the interview with Adriana's mother, and people were curious enough about it for them to squeeze ratings from it.
I had remained mostly uncommented on by anyone that wasn't at my high school until that point, but that was about to change.
My dad let me borrow a suit since the one I owned was about a size too small. As he helped me into the sleek black suit he used for presentations, I felt pretty sharp. This was easily the best I had felt in my entire life, and I was still riding the high of helping Lisa at the party. My celebrity at school had soured after the word got out that I had stopped her ex from kidnapping her. It seemed that I couldn't walk two feet without seeing a red string or an orange string, or a hopeful blue string trying to attach itself to me. I likely looked like the aforementioned popular girl with my web of connections zipping off every which way, and I had to stop myself from looking lest I give myself a headache. I was on top of the world, and I couldn't see how I could ever come down.
Though, when I saw the black string that stretched off into nowhere, I remembered that there was at least one person out there with less than friendly interest.
The interview went about as well as expected. The spin was very positive, Local Boy Arrives at Crime Scene in Time to Comfort Dying Girl, and the reporter was more than a little flattering. As usual, I didn't mention the strings. I stuck to the same story I had given the police. I had been walking and saw the man dragging a struggling girl from his van into the warehouse. I had been nervous, thinking about calling emergency services, before finding my nerve and plunging into the building to try and help her. I had arrived too late and called for help as I sat with her in her last moments. The news anchor had theatrically wiped a tear away and told me again how brave I was. I just sort of nodded and told her that it was nice of her to say so but that I was just doing what anyone should do if they see someone in trouble. The interview wrapped up, and as the cameras cut, she thanked me and told me she was sorry for what I had endured.
"Finding that poor girl like that….I can't imagine how that must haunt you."
On that note, she had no idea.
A few days later, I saw the van.
I believe the first time might have been a coincidence. I was walking home, Mark buzzing in my ear about something when I saw the van driving in the opposite direction. The windows were tinted, the driver little more than an outline, but I noticed him when he craned his neck around to look at me. I felt a prickle run up my back. He had nearly broken his neck trying to get a look at me, but I put it out of my mind. So what? Maybe he recognized me from the news broadcast. It was no big deal.
As Mark told me bye, it brought me back to reality.
He left for his house and left me to walk the three blocks to my own.
I hadn't been walking long when I heard a soft voice from nowhere.
"You have a shadow."
I jumped a little and tried not to look around. Adriana hadn't popped in for a chat since that night with Lisa, and her intrusions were a little worrying. I couldn't honestly believe some ghost girl was hanging out in my head but did that make her a manifestation of my own intuition or something? Some kind of Jiminy Cricket conscience voice that lived in my noggin? What was she, and why did she keep popping up?
"That van looks familiar," she said as I tried my best to maintain my pace, "kind of like the one he pulled me into."
I didn't dare look behind me, but I could hear tires driving slowly over the pavement.
This wasn't real. I had seen a van and was just psyching myself out. If I turned around right now, I would probably just see a mail truck or a taxi pulling up to someone's house. There was no proof that the vehicle behind me was the same white van at all.
But there wasn't any proof it wasn't.
"I'd cut down this side road. He's getting closer."
I cut down the alley before I could think about it too much. I heard the vehicle roll on as I sped up, making my way between two streets. The alley was too narrow for the van to fit, but I was sure it would double back and come for me on the adjoining street. I could hear the sound of someone accelerating, and I would likely come out of the alley just in time for them to run me over. I had started to panic when I looked down and saw the very thing that would likely send me over the edge.
The black string was rotating, following the course of the van.
"Duck behind that dumpster and stay absolutely still."
Adrianna's voice was deathly quiet, almost a pale whisper, and I found myself ducking behind that dumpster before I could stop myself.
From my vantage point, I could see it roll past slowly, the driver scouting the alley. I peeked from between a pair of trash cans, watching it pass with slow deliberateness. I couldn't see much through the tinted windows, but that black string sticking from the doorway told me all I needed to know. It was no coincidence that he was so close to my house, and I would need to take steps to ensure that he never learned where I lived.
He had found me, maybe through luck or maybe not, and decided that I needed to be silenced.
I stayed hidden there next to that stinking dumpster until I saw him take a left and drive towards Mark's neighborhood.
Then I booked it for home as fast as I could.
I got home and slammed the door, throwing all the locks before running upstairs. My guardian angel didn't speak up, so I figured I might be in the clear for the time being. I wasn't sure what to do about this, my mind tripping over a thousand different possibilities. I could tell my parents, but would they believe me? I had no proof that he had done anything, and if the police searched his van and found nothing, it would ruin my credibility. I could tell the police, but that would amount to the same thing as telling my parents. They might also decide that I was looking for attention or trying to divert them from myself and decide I was the real killer. My afternoons became a steady slog between the window and my door, wracking my brain for some way out of this. I would check the window, look down on the street for the van, cross to my desk and pick up my notepad, then walk to the door so I could tell my parents before throwing up my hands and doing it all over again.
The one person I could have talked to about this was as silent as the grave, which was fitting since that was where she now resided.
He let me stew like this for four days before he struck..
I hadn't seen the van since that first time, but I felt like he was still around. It's hard to explain, but I would get that feeling of eyes watching me, and I would suddenly change my course and walk another way. I cut through people's yards, went to friends' houses only to leave through their backyard, and took any roundabout way that I could to get home without being seen. That worked for a few days, but on Thursday, it was raining.
Mark's dad had picked him up for a doctor's appointment, but my dad was stuck at work. Mom was out getting some things from the market, and I did not want to stay out in the open waiting for her to come get me. I started running, kicking up puddles as I went, and by the halfway point, I was completely soaked. I kept looking around like a fitful deer, sure that the headlights of a van would find me any minute. I would hear the engine roar suddenly, and the last thing I would see would be the headlights and grill as it rolled right over me, silencing me forever. Maybe my mom would find me on the way back from the store. Maybe a passerby would be there to hold my hand as I had held Adriana's. Either way, I would be too dead to care.
The puddles exploded around my feet like landmines, but I barely noticed as they soaked through my sneakers. I was running flat out, my chest heaving and my heart thumping. My adrenaline was high, and I knew that I just had to make it home before he found me. He had discovered the general vicinity of my neighborhood, and the last thing I wanted to do was lead him right to my house, but it was so wet out, and I just couldn't stay in it for long.
When I turned onto my street, my porchlight in sight, I thought I was home free.
When headlights flooded the other end of the road, the GMC logo standing out on that white panel van, I knew I hadn't.
We stood, looking at each other like a pair of duelists.
I heard his wheels screech in the deep puddles when I took off running.
I was fifty feet from my yard when his tires found purchase. I could feel my sneakers squelching on the pavement, but I put on a burst of speed as his van sped towards me. He was sending water up in buckets, his van plowing down the road like a white bullet. I could see the front porch getting closer and closer, the light glimmering wetly through the pouring rain, but its proximity was no comfort. The van was getting bigger and bigger as it raced towards me, and I was easily twenty feet away as its headlights blazed maliciously.
I closed my eyes as my feet sank into the grass of my yard, my foot catching as I stumbled onto the sopping grass.
My craggy yard ended up saving my life that day.
As I tripped, I rolled across the grass, sliding to a stop on my face. The van drove over the spot I had tripped in a second later, and I heard the screech of tires as he nearly flipped his van on the wet road. He hit the brakes, the car sliding, and barely avoided hitting a tree. As he gained control of his vehicle, he squealed to a stop in the middle of the road, the rain pattering on his van as it steamed. I was dazed, but I kept enough witts to get to my feet and stumble for the door. My keys hung in my pocket, my roar ripping up my throat as I tore my pants getting them out. I could hear his door creaking open, his boots slapping at the turf as he came after me, and I knew that I had seconds to get the door between us. I could see him in my mind's eye, a knife or a piece of wood in his hand, with that sick grin spread across his face; the one he always wore when I remembered that day. The string would be thrumming between us, seeing its moment at hand as I came within inches of death.
I shoved the door open and careened inside, slamming it behind me as I threw every lock that I could find.
I looked down to find that the string was indeed thrumming, pulsing a midnight tone, as the man beat on the door with his fist. He screamed at me to let him in. He screamed at me to accept my fate. He screamed a lot of things at me as the rain beat down around the house, but I just backed away and reached into my pocket for the phone. I'd call the police, and they'd have him. He couldn't hide now. I had him dead to rights, and they couldn't say I was looking for attention when I...
My hand came back empty.
I fumbled in my pockets for nearly a minute before seeing it through the big front window and realizing I had lost it in the tumble.
My parents had no house phone, no one I knew had a house phone, and I had no way to connect with anyone without my phone.
Unless, I thought, I could get to the computer. If I could get upstairs and message my friends, they could call the cops for me. I looked at the stairs, my legs still aching, and saw the twenty-three steps as something akin to Everest. My chest hurt, my lungs ached, and my legs were torn up from my tumble across the yard. I didn't feel capable of walking to the couch, let alone up the stairs.
Either way, it was the only way I was going to get any help, and I steeled myself for the climb as I took that first step towards the stairs.
My adrenaline pushed itself back to the surface as I heard the door to the back porch smash open.
It appeared I had less time than I thought.

2022.01.28 15:48 Stubby_face Anyone else let down by MA Arc? Spoiler

I don’t know why but I am not a big fan on the direction this arc is taking, tbh I prefer the webcomics instead. The tone and direction this arc has taken doesn’t fit what I had envisioned from the webcomics. Narratively speaking the webcomics had a better premise and mood for this arc and with Garou’s character, having Garou all the sudden shift his main focus from destroying HA to now helping them fight the MA defeats the purpose of this arc and his character. Plus, Platinum Sperm wasn’t as nearly as epic as his webcomic counterpart and the fight between Garou and PS felt lackluster, I don’t understand how you turn one of the strongest MA monsters to being so underwhelming. I’m sorry but the webcomics were better for the writing and moments, a lot of moments we thought that would’ve made it in the manga got shafted instead, moments that made the series greater. Now Garou doesn’t feel like the final threat anymore, plus, where the fuck is Sweet Mask? Why did ONE take away the only time that Sweet Mask got to prove himself to S-Class? That is not the only thing that got shafted, but Fubuki versus Psykos got thrown under the rug, that fight was such a key moment to Fubuki’s development and progression as a character. I am done with my rant, I know I’m going to get a lot of downvotes for this but I said what I said and if you were a webcomic fan, I’m sure you feel the same way.

2022.01.28 15:48 anonymous-sparkle Why isn't my puppy asleep? 😭

I don't get it he woke up at 14:30 and is still going over 4 hours later and hes only 10 weeks old. We've done training, tug, puzzles, zoomies, lots of toilet trips, chilling together with him chewing things, him chilling alone chewing or licking things. We've attempted crated nap time where hes either just sat up and stared at me or cried, normally he settles well for naps. He's currently in his crate quietly crying and yawning simultaneously. I'm sat right by the door which normally settles him in a few minutes. How can I help my poor boy settle? And is it unhealthy for him to he awake for that long at once? To add he's eating, drinking and toileting just fine, maybe yes teething?

2022.01.28 15:48 mrbelyando Best mix I’ve ever done

Quarantine Flipping
It all started when I got exposed to covid and had to quarantine. So I decided to eat my last 200mg dose of 6-apb around 11pm 0:00 Just to give a little background. I have extensive experience in psychedelic drugs of all sorts . Ive tried 91 different psychoactive compounds: 22 phenethylamines (including all magic 6) 13 Tryptamines and 10 dissos just to name maybe the three most known categories. I consider myself to be a responsible psychedelics user since I was 18 . And tonight I wanted to party. 01:00After waiting and hour for the benzofury(6-apb)to kick in I decided to boof my last 35mg of 2cb HBr. Started noticing effects but was not satisfied since ive done both substances by themselves multiple times at all sorts of doses. I have a natural tolerance for allot of psychedelics except LSD. 02:00 I decide to take some 10mg of 2ce followed by another 5mg half an hour later and a drop of 70-80ug of LSD aprox . I volumetricaly dosed it myself from a gift of 4mg of powder. 03:00 loving it amazing mix clear headed, psychedelic, visual as fuck and euphoric no serious introspection. Lets add some 5mg of O-PCE to increase the psychedelia why not, 04:00 OMG amazing mix . Love how the 5mg of O-PCE synergiezes so well with most psychedelics ive mixed at only 5mg. I feel amazing. (+++) why not vape some DMT out of my cartridge that I also dosed myself (extremely pure dmt). GREAT IDEA !!!!!! I kept taking small puffs of it and having the most amazing open eye visuals and the most pleasant body and mind euphoria. 05:00 kept on taking pufs here and there and blasting music all night to the most amazing visuals and body euphoria until my vape stoped working. I had been also consuming cannabis eddibles throughout the night to the amounts of 200mg its not a big deal for me. Around hour 05:30-06:00 i decided to finally give DPT a try at 10-20mg doses vaped at its required temps and was very disappointed at those doses(late l found out that batch is HCL so thats why it didnt work duH) Im respectful of it and especially with the mix I tried tonight so I decided to go no further and just take 4 more drops of 70-80ug of LSD why not. 08:30 Its 7:30 am and ive had such an amazing night. The highlight of it was vaping the DMT while peaking on 6-apb, 2cb, 2ce, L and OPCE. Truly wonderful, clear headed and no mind fuckery at all. Mouth opening musically synchronized visuals that caused massive body and mind euphoria and music is nectar to the ears. The 4 drops I took are coming in smoothly and gently. I don’t expect anything crazy besides keeping the plateau for longer. I had truly a magnificent time I want to say its a one of the best convos ive ever done but I also don’t recommend it. Its a balsy mix and my experiment went wonderfully and Im grateful. I always have trip killers and will take Pyrazolam later this day to go to sleep or if im done tripping. This is my first ever report sharing and felt like it was a worthy one to share.

2022.01.28 15:48 Big-Pay-831 As long as the Fed signals they are hawkish the price of PMs will probably continue to slide

This is to be expected, because a lot of emerging markets have a lot of dollar denominated debt. They need dollars to service that debt which will strengthen the dollar in the short term. However this is going to put strain on the global economy, as the planet is leveraged up to their eyeballs, and these countries have to buy dollars at higher and higher prices. Someone, somewhere, will trigger a domino debt crises that will force the central banks into QE infinity to bail the planet out. Should you wait for that for cheaper prices? Maybe, but if PM supply becomes to constricted you can just see the premiums rise anyway

So I m Kata, zed and yas main (60+ wr) and hit Challenger previous season. This season is just too hard to push in solo q. Most of my matches are because of feeder and ECT... But the elder is just to op. Even if we have all the drakes and I m like 12/2 on Kata or Yas if the enemy gets elder because one of your teammates died, the enemy will win the fights...
So it's so annoying when you teammates die before elder and they get elder... How is that a comeback?
This makes it even more hard to push rank...

2022.01.28 15:48 agreedboar Ever since my thyroidectomy, my muscles will not stop cramping

I can simply raise my arm and pull a muscle in my back. I can move my leg while asleep and then pull a calf muscle, and then wake up in excruciating pain. I can do nothing, and move any limb a centimeter and a cluster of muscles will cramp.
The greatest part is my idiot doctor just told me to take magnesium, which is the standard thing people do when they deal with muscle cramps. However, this is always due to a poor diet. My diet has not changed. I eat exactly the same as I do before. I take my levothyroxine as prescribed too, and of course I take it over an hour before eating as directed.
Has anyone else who went through a thyroidectomy due to Grave's Disease or any form of hyperthyroidism experienced this? It's really degrading my quality of life not being able to do anything active like working out or stretching anymore.
Doesn't help that I live in the US, so I pay hundreds of dollars a visit just to see these subpar doctors.
