[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Merriweather][merriweather As the woman was speaking, Shane nodded a little bit towards the male. [#1E90FF "A new knob, and a deadbolt will do nicely"] he said with a small shrug of his shoulders. The male's fingers were itching to hold a smoke between them, but he didn't want to scare the woman off. He sighed as he leaned against the counter and then looked at the woman. [#1E90FF "You should learn to carry pepper spray with you, or make sure you have a sharp object in your hand, make sure it's small enough that no one else can see it though"] he said with a shrug.]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Merriweather][merriweather He didn't know why he was helping her, but he felt like she needed the advice. [#1E90FF "It's a pleasure meeting you though, and I know once this shit is all fixed, you'll feel a lot safer"] he said with a warm smile. He couldn't help but look her up and down, and the thought of tasting her crossed his mind. He wanted to taste her lips on his, or at least what her skin felt like under his. He couldn't let himself get that far ahead of himself. She was scared shitless, and he could see it in her eyes.]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Merriweather][merriweather When the other male came back, and showed them the locks, Shane agreed that they would do good. He paid for them, and then took the bag. [b "Make sure you get her home safe Shane, I don't want to see either one of you on the news tomorrow night"] he said. Shane just shook his head, [#1E90FF "You know me. I fight to win, and I'll make sure she's home, and locked safely in her apartment"] he promised anyway. He knew it would make the other male more comfortable.]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Merriweather][merriweather He then turned to the woman and offered her his arm. He didn't know where he was going, but it would be nice to walk around for a little bit. He led her out of the store, and made sure his body was close to her's. [#1E90FF "I'm sorry about the older man. I know he was looking for a good fuck, and you were the perfect target. But I meant what I said about having pepper spray, or sharp object. If you are going to be out late and all"] he said as he looked down at her.]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Merriweather][merriweather He then broke out into a smile and nodded towards a cafe. [#1E90FF "How about some hot chocolate before I take you home, and get these locks in?"] he asked lightly. He really didn't wait for an answer as he started across the street, and headed into the small cafe. It was starting to snow even more, and pretty soon they wouldn't be able to make it to her place. He didn't care at the moment, he wanted something warm in his stomach.]
She looked stupid, she knew that. Crying in front of a complete stranger. She felt stupid for even being scared at this point. she half expected him to keep walking, but then she heard his voice, and she looked up, trying to quickly wipe the tears from her eyes. when he offered to change her locks she spoke, her lips trembling "Y-you'd do that?" She had managed to choke out.
Elaine watched as he tilted his head, and introduced himself. Sniffling some the blonde then introduced herself "My name is Elaine.." Her hands once more going up to her eyes to wipe a few more tears away. That was when he embraced her. the girl froze at first, her blue eyes wide. But took a deep breath. He was warm.. and he smelled nice..
She hadn't even noticed but her cheeks were a deep red, her blue eyes looking anywhere but at him. She wasnt used to such.. close male contact. Not unless it was scripted of course. But this was different, There were no scenes, no lines. She was on her own. Elaine was pulled from her thoughts when he spoke again, and then began walking. Quickly she began to follow, keeping close behind.
Elaine kept quiet on the walk, not wanting to bother him any more than she already had. When she saw the neighborhood they were entering she paused, hesitating.. but saw he didn't slow down. The blonde had to fight with herself before she ran to catch up with him, seeing him enter a store, and slowly came in behind him.
the girl let Shane talk, until he had looked at her "W-what kind?" she asked, unsure.. "I-I mean. I live in an apartment, I didn't really know there were different kinds of locks. " Elaine rubbed the back of her head. "I have two locks, the deadbolt and the knob, but the landlord never gave me a key for the deadbolt, he said it was lost and that i probably wouldn't need it" She explained. Thinking back on it now.. That was a fairly lame excuse.. "I'm only able to use the deadbolt though when i am at home. "
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Merriweather][merriweather The male took another drag, and when he heard the sound of her voice, he slowly turned and looked towards her. He cocked his head slightly to the side and sighed a bit. Watching as she slowly broke down was breaking his own heart, and he felt bad for her as well. What was he supposed to do anyway? She couldn't go home, and she was scared to death. He could see it in the way she was standing, and the way her shoulders shook as she sobbed. He sighed lightly, as he took another drag and then put the smoke out.]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Merriweather][merriweather [#1E90FF "Listen, I know what happened was scary, and you shouldn't be here right now. You shouldn't even be trusting me right now. Because for all you know, I could be the one who's trying to hurt you. I'm not though, I can promise you that. I do know of a place that's open twenty-four seven, and they sell locks and keys. I can go with you to get one, and then take you back home and change your locks"] he said with a small breath after. He honestly didn't want too but he had no choice.]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Merriweather][merriweather He didn't even have his car, so they would have to walk. He didn't care either. He loved the snow more than anything. He looked towards her slowly and cocked his head to the side. [#1E90FF "I'm Shane by the way"] he said remembering he hadn't told her his name. He wasn't always like this, but he felt like he had to be. She was a beautiful woman not much younger than he was, and she was scared. He walked over and wrapped his arms around her shaking body. He stood there hugging her a moment, before pulling back.]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Merriweather][merriweather [#1E90FF "I know what happened was scary, but we need to get this done"] he said lightly as he dropped his arms from around her. He lowered his eyes to the ground and then took a couple steps back. He didn't know if she would follow him or not, but he turned back the way he had been heading. The small shop was a shop, she wouldn't even step foot into. He knew it, because it was in a huge gang territory. He could step foot in there, because he was the head member, and no one fucked with him.]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Merriweather][merriweather When the shop was in view, he walked inside and spotted Corey behind the counter. [#1E90FF "Hey man, I need a lock and key"] he called out. [b "Alright, what kind do ya need?"] Corey asked. Shane turned towards the woman to let her start speaking. He was surprised she hadn't kept up. He sighed lightly as he stood there with his arms crossed, waiting for the woman to either walk away, or catch up. He was going out of his way anyway, so the best she could do was come inside, and help a guy out.]
Elaine's brain was screaming for someone to help, her entire body was trembling, her eyes darting around, looking for someone, anyone.. But in front of her there was no one. That's when she heard another male voice, instantly she looked back, her eyes wide with desperation. Elaine s cheeks reddened when he spoke, calling her his girlfriend, Despite her beauty, Elaine had never gotten intimate with anyone, she didn't have the chance to..
Mostly because of her love for singing and acting on stage, and also since her mother had been deteriorating in health since she was at least ten. She just didn't have time to look for love, or have love find her, all she thought about was making her mother proud before she had to leave this world..
when the older man spoke, saying that he knew she lived alone. she thought he wasnt going to give up, that he was going to get away with her, but the next thing she knew the younger man had pushed away the man who had been following her and put his own arm around her. The blondes body stiffened, her cheeks turning a deep and dark red, her eyes glancing down to his hand at her waist. He was must taller than her, which helped in keeping the other man away.
Hoping that this younger man did actually intend to help and not just another creep, Elaine shifted her weight some to lean into him, trying to make it a little more believable to the creepy older man that she could possibly be dating this younger tall male. Finally it seemed that it was over, though the mans last words to her made her shiver she was just thankful to be alive, and unharmed.
there was a small silence as Elaine's eyes watched the man fade away into the snowy night, away from her home, but who knew for how long. Elaine had been deep in thought about the entire situation when the male dropped his hand from her waist and spoke, causing her to jump, and look up at him, wide eyed.
"I..I.." she stammered, glancing back the way the man had disappeared "I know..I didn't expect to be out this late.." she brought her hand up to rub the back of her neck nervously. When he spoke about going home, Elaine heart sank, but she kept quiet at first, looking in the direction of her home, then to look at him pulling out some cigarettes and lighting one up.
She was fighting with herself. she knew she couldnt go home, the creep who had been stalking her could get into her apartment without her even knowing, what if he was on his way there now to 'Find her again' He hadn't gotten not too far from her when she spoke "I..I can't" She spoke, her voice breaking as she tried to keep herself together, not even realizing she didn't really explain what she couldn't do.
She didn't feel safe, not on the streets, and now not even at home. it was too late to buy a new lock set, and she didn't really have money for a hotel room, seeing as she had been helping pay her mothers medical bills. It was overwhelming to her. Quickly Elaine hid her face in her hands, embarrassed she was beginning to break down in front of a stranger on a street corner in the middle of the night.
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Merriweather][merriweather The snow was falling by the time Shane left the tattoo parlor. He had gotten a new tattoo on her right shoulder, and he had spent the whole afternoon sleeping with the woman who had done it. It was his payment for getting the tattoo's done in the first place. A small sigh passed though his lips as he slid his hands into his coat pockets. It was getting late, and he had walked to the parlor. He was now regretting that choice. He wanted to get home, and get home quick. He knew it would be snowing a lot harder by that time.]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Merriweather][merriweather As the male was rounding the corner he spotted a blonde woman, and a man not far behind her. He cocked his head slightly to the side, wondering what was going on. Something wasn't right, and he knew it. As he started walking again, he heard a horn honking and he looked towards the sound. The man that had been following the blonde was now right beside her. He narrowed his eyes at the sight and wished he had ignored it. He couldn't though, it wasn't like him period. He sighed as he looked both ways.]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Merriweather][merriweather When he knew it was clear, he hurried across the street and he cleared his throat. [#1E90FF "Excuse me, what are you doing with my girlfriend?"] he asked lightly. The man looked towards him and narrowed his eyes. [b "She's not your girlfriend. I know for a fact she lives alone"] the male said. Shane just shrugged his shoulders. He wasn't in the mood to cause a fight, but he had a feeling that's what it was going to be turning into. [#1E90FF "Just because she lives alone, doesn't mean she's single"] he snapped.]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Merriweather][merriweather He walked over and grabbed the man's own shoulder and nearly shoved him aside. He wrapped his arm around her waist, and drew her against his side. [#1E90FF "If you'll excuse us, I'm taking her home now. If I were you, I wouldn't even look her direction unless you want your face smashed in"] he said. The ma looked between the two, and he shook his head. [b "I'll find you again"] he said to the woman and walked off. Shane rolled his eyes and looked down at the woman against his side. His breath caught in his throat at the sight of her.]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Merriweather][merriweather [#1E90FF "Ya know, it's dangerous walking around alone at night. I would suggest you have pepper spray from now on"] he said lightly as he looked back down the street. He made sure the man was gone, before he dropped his arm from around the woman. He stepped back and took the sight of her in again. She was beautiful, she looked scared too and he couldn't blame her. Walking around a town like this after sun down, was really dangerous in the first place. He on the other side, didn't care.]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Merriweather][merriweather He shoved his hands back into his pockets and looked down at the ground. [#1E90FF "Well, I would get home if I were you and change the locks on your doors"] he said lightly. That's all he had to say on that matter. He turned and walked away from the woman. He didn't know her name, and that's fine. He pulled out a pack of smokes from his pocket, placed one between his lips and lit it. He took a drag, let the smoke linger before blowing it out. He walked down the street, heading back the way he had come.]
[google-font https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Merriweather][merriweather His own house was on the other side of town, and he had done his good deed for the day. He took another drag, as he kept walking.]
It was late, Much later than she was used to getting out of the theater, but dress rehearsal was next week and she wanted to know every line without even thinking, so she had staid later to perfect her scenes. But now she was by the big glass doors, pulling her coat on as she watched the steadily falling snow outside. Elaine didn't want to venture out into the cold, But what choice did she have? She wasnt about to stay the night in the theater.
So with zipping up her coat and smoothing it down over the skirt of her dress she picked up her purse and exited the theater being sure to lock the doors behind her as the owner instructed when giving her the keys so she could practice after hours, after that she turned around, seemingly to cross the street when she noticed through the snow and slight fogginess in the air she could see someone standing across the street, hands in his pockets, leaning on a telephone pole.
for some reason, She sight of him didn't sit well with her. she had noticed what seemed like someone following her for a little over a week now, but had just concluded it was her overactive mind But still, she decided to take a different way home, as to not give away her home to this man in case she actually was being followed
Elaine had made it a couple blocks down , and didn't see the man across the street so she exhaled a sigh of releif. Little did she know, he was following behind her now, having crossed the street. Elaine herself crossed the street, now on the course home, just a few streets over now. the blonde wouldn't of turned around if it wasnt for an angry driver laying on his horn due to the man crossing the street in front of his car with no warning just to keep up with the girl. When Elaine saw this she began walking faster, thinking of a safe place to go that was open this late.. then it hit her
The convenience store.
Elaine turned down one street, leading away from her house and towards the corner store which was always open late, she didn't dare look back again, she just kept walking forward, her hand rummaging around in her purse for her phone once she pulled it out, she saw it had been no use, the phone was dead "I knew i should of plugged it in while practicing " she muttered, shoving it back into her purse as she turned another corner only to have her shoulder grabbed.
Elaine gasped as the man turned her around rather forcefully Her blue eyes wide as she man gave a... incredibly creepy smile. Elaine took a step back, looking the man up an down. he didn't seem to have a weapon, but that's when he reached his hand into his coat and pulled out a bundle of pages holding it out for her "I think you dropped this" there was a certain tone in his voice, as if he thought he was telling a joke.
When Elaine looked at the paged she saw it was her script, her original copy anyways, one that just seemed to go missing from her apartment. Elaine eyes widened even more, and her jaw dropped, her lips trembling "I.. i don't think so.." She shook her head "T-thank you though" Elaine stammered out, taking another step back, but the man took another step forward towards her "take it" Elaine quickly shook her head "Look, I should be getting home, My boyfriend will worry. " She lied, causing the man to snicker, which sent a shiver down her spine
"If you want to go home, you know you're heading in the wrong direction" He finally spoke, causing Elaine to freeze in place like a deer in headlights. Slowly the man came closer and slid an arm around her "I know you live alone, Why don't you come with me? I can keep you safe" He spoke, teasing her.
Elaine luckily tried to move from having his arm around her, but he tightened his grip on her shoulder, urging her to turn around and move in the direction of home "you don't want anyone you love to get hurt.. do you?" Elaine gasped.. its as if he knew her mother was sick, and was dying. and although terrified, Elaine slowly began to walk in the direction the man wanted her too, not daring to call attention to herself, Not that there were that many people out in this weather
