Friday Flash Short Horror Story - I Begged You

I begged you to stay with me.
I pleaded, promised, swore to give you everything you wanted.
I was at my best, not that I am not mostly my best, but I went further in my request for you to stay with me. I did everything I could think of, even some things I could not think of on my own.
On my quest to convince you, I went on the internet, borrowed relationship books from the library, spoke with family and friends.
I took their advice, I applied it.
I worshiped your every step.
I begged you to stay with me.

Your response what not what I expected.

But I am sure you did not expect how I would handle it.
I am sure of that, I made sure of that.
You see, I have never allowed you to see what I am capable off, not wanting to scare you and all. Oh, I did scare you a  little before, but just a little. I did let you see me follow you, send you flowers in places you did not think I knew you went to.
That was the fun little scare.
An exiting scare.

Still, you did not know what I could do to you.
Because you also did not know one of the most important things about me.
 No one tells me no.
No one does, not even you.
 It does not matter how much you begged me at the end, because I know another secret, that you had to learn the hard way.

If I can't have you, no one can.

  1. Creepy stuff! I read this as being from a male POV, but looking at it, it could quite easily be female. Nice job.

    "Your responds what not what I expected." (Typo here?)

    1. thank you for pointing out the typo - I guess it was too early in the morning for me to catch that - glad you enjoyed the story! Blessings!

  2. At first I wondered if this wasn't someone pining for a ghost. The unexpected response would be... well, unexpected by most! And still, it's probably true that if you can't have a ghost's love, no one else can either.

    1. I must say John, that is a very interesting and great response. Love to see my own words through someone else's eyes, always surprising, thank you

  3. Ah an obsessed stalker - the worst kind!

    Found you another typo " I did everything I could think off"

  4. Nicely put together, this is one of those stories that have you looking over your shoulder.

    People like these are extremely scary, very focused, and very dangerous.

    1. they are indeed, may we never encounter them, thanks for stopping by

  5. Eeek. The clipped sentences are very effective! Nice one.
