I couldn't help myself, I knew it was school today, I knew I was only in a massive p.j shirt, shorts and I knew that I was bare foot. But I ran to Jerry's house like my life depended on it. Like I had nothing left. I knew it wasn't him, it couldn't be, but...the irony of my nightmare and her appearing on the television the next day was just terrifying.
I finally got to his house, out of breath and banged on his door until his father opened it.
"Excuse me, Ally? But it is 7am in the morning. I'm tired, i'm grumpy and you're banging on my door like your life is depending on it. Now what is it?!" He tried to be as polite as possible, it didn't really work.
"It's an emergency." I huffed. He immediately woke up.
"What is it, what's happened?!" he asked.
"I need to speak to Jerry, I'm sorry I don't have time for this." I gently pushed past him and charged up the stairs, banging open his bedroom door.
He was stood there in his shirt and boxers looking in the mirror intensely, he turned to look at me, shocked. I didn't really notice the fact that he was half naked, I just looked at his shirt and ran up to him, grabbing it and smelling it. Blood.
"Ellie? What's going on?!" he asked. I felt faint. This could not be happening.
"Jerry tell me you didn't." I whispered, looking up at him.
"Tell me you killed that poor innocent girl that was gagged and murdered on the news! Tell my why Jerry, huh?! Why did you do this!" I screamed. He stared at me and horror.
"I don't know what you're talking about-" I interrupted.
"Oh you know exactly what I'm talking about. You've been lying to everyone, your mother, your father, your friends. But you can't lie to me. Not any more Jerry." I shook my head and shrugged, letting go of his t-shirt and walking to his bedroom door again.
"Ellie, seriously what are you talking about?" He grabbed my arm but I jerked off of him.
"Why don't you turn on the news and check you sick person." I said in his face, slamming the door behind me.
