An Eye of Evil - Original Writing I sat there engrossed in a novel, floating around in another world. I could read all day pretending I was a self-created character in the story. My imagination ran and ran, with pictures spinning round my head. I could turn words into scenes I wish I was that person in the book, imaginary. Suddenly the phone rang. I could feel all the emotions out of the silence. I jerked forwards with shock and stopped breathing for a moment. My eyes came off the book and travelled across to the phone, which I grabbed. Who will it be this time? "Hello", I whimpered in a nervous voice. No reply. I raised my voice, which did not seem like me at all. "Who is speaking? What do you want?"

I would be phoned day after day, and the caller would listen to me on the other end, until I was screaming and shouting. It was rather creepy and terrifying and the silence made my heart pound. It was as if someone was stalking me. They knew what I was doing, all my moves, and every second of my life, even a blink, or a breath! They would ring at a time when I was busy doing something. This always made me scared as I became shocked and shook from terror. I would also get letters, full of bitter horrible messages, such as, 'I know your dark secret' and 'I'm going to make you pay for this'.
