I don’t really know who the original author is..it’s based off something else, but it’s far from exact.
I walk into the store, and walk to my aisle. I stop in my tracks, and watch as I see a little girl with her mother.
I try to close my eyes.
But a vision invades my thoughts.
I see the little girl getting led away, and left to starve to death after being attacked.
I am back in reality when I see the little girl, pale. I can see her ribs, almost coming out.
It's sickening, and I look away quickly.
That's my next mistake. I see a man, checking out his groceries.
I fall into another trance. I'm in a bank, and I see the man behind the counter.
Alarms start blaring.
I come back, frightened. I look at the man, now with a bullet hole straight through his gut, and another through his head.
Then, I see the cashier. She looks around 18 years old.
I see a man.
I hear him hitting her.
I hear a strangled cry.
When I come back this time, I see bruises, and cuts, and blood everywhere.
I rush to pack my groceries up in my cart, looking down at the floor.
I checked out and ran to the car.
I looked at a rear view mirror.
I saw me.
A rope was tied.
A chair clattered to the floor.
I didn't regret it.
I was back in my car, in cold sweat.
My clammy hands tried to grip the steering wheel.
I wish I didn't wish to see how people died.
