Matching LivesMature

Young man just moved out on his own into a big city. He thinks that he is going crazy as he starts to see things in the shadows and hears things in the walls.

"And don't forget to eat your veggies!" Mom called after me as I pulled out of the driveway. I waved at her and spend up, excited to start my own life away from home. I went through the channels on the radio looking for something that matched my mood but today all the stations seemed only to play sad song. I switched off the radio and begins humming to myself. The landscape passed by quickly and by night I could already see some signs for bars in the distance. I slowed down as I drove closer, still not confident about driving in a town that had more then a few hundred people. The buildings seems to leer down at me and also tilt as if they were going to reach down and grab me. I found the hotel I had booked earlier and as the clerk looked down at me information I heard something move behind me. I turned around expecting to see someone but nothing. The clerk cleared her throat causing me to jump. Grinning sheepishly I quickly grabbed the key and headed to my room.

The End
