Someone tried to set my house on fire last night. They threw a gods damn Molotov cocktail at my window. I didn’t even know people actually make Molotov cocktails! I thought they were a gods damned movie cliché!
I got lucky. The bottle actually bounced off my window and landed in my lilac bush. Said bush is now a pile of char, but my neighbor saw it burning and called the fire department.
The fire department came and the police weren’t far behind them. After they put out my bush and found the remnants of the glass bottle, they did a sweep of the area and discovered a second one. Under my car. They think that it was supposed to set my car on fire but that for some reason the wick didn’t catch. The police think that I’m being targeted because of what happened with Tom. They’re probably right, but what are they gonna do? They might be able to catch this proxy, but what about the next one? And the next one? And what happens when the faceless one himself shows up?
My current assumption is that whichever proxy called me the other night decided to step up their efforts. But hey if all proxies were as ineffective as this one, we’d all be a hell of a lot safer, right? I mean what have they managed to do? One mildly disturbing phone call and two homemade grenades, one that barely did any damage and the other that did none at all. Let’s all hope that the downgrade in quality is not just a fluke.
My opinion on this matter stands I believe that the proxy is in fact the guy you gave your number to. He'll continue the personal attacks until you feel vulnerable enough to rely on his alter ego, and in the moment you place your trust in him he will kill you. I would be highly wary of any advances he makes after this.ReplyDelete
The thing of it is, Naomi, even if you're right, paranoia is not the way to go. It just makes things easier for It down the line.ReplyDelete
But it will keep her alive at present.ReplyDelete
Alive and paranoid is better than dead and careless.ReplyDelete
Paranoia still leads to death later down the line. It WANTS us isolated and not trusting anyone. Personally, I'd rather not give It what It wants.ReplyDelete
Look she has us the runner community. She wont be alone well at least not in spirit any, but you should know it is very unwise when in a situation such as our own to trust anyone from the outside. And even if he's not the proxy are you really going to suggest she bring an innocent into this mess?ReplyDelete
Amazingly Tensor, Naomi, whatever your name is this week, I actually agree with you. I already made my decision about Ryan. He'll be getting one date that way if he is just a normal guy I can tell him sorry the spark just isn't there instead of being a rude twat. And I'll be armed that way if he isn't a normal guy I'll be ready. It was the best compromise I could come too.ReplyDelete
Ryuu, I know that you think I need to start dating again, but in the end Naomi makes the only point that matters. How could I bring an innocent into this? If it was just about my life maybe it would be a different story, but if he is just a normal guy, how could I live with myself if I infected someone else?
Oh Kay. Oh I'm so sorry. :(ReplyDelete
One date is really all I asked for, Kay. Just so you can have a normal, fun time without being constantly vigilant, as though you were deliberately walking into a snakepit or something. As long as you're not dismissing him as untrustworthy out of hand, then I'm happy. ^^ReplyDelete

THen your wish does not come true dear. There's no such thing anymore. If there was i wouldn't have to go armed and be ready for him to try to kill me at any second.
When I put it that way, why the hell am I doing this? Maybe I have a death wish after all.
Hi, I just caught up with your blog.ReplyDelete
I realise you said you were going to cut down on blog posts but, well, I hope you're ok.
A hard bottle of liquor bounced in the window, and the second one didnt even exploded? wow, your guardian angel must love you too much.ReplyDelete
I agree, is better to do not involucrate innocents. Wish you good health, sister.
